Every single year, the Major League Soccer Players Union publicly releases salary information for every single player in the league. However, we don't deal much with MLS but that doesn't mean that there isn't a Bolton-related interest in the figures.
Dougie Freedman had said that the Trotters were looking at two names set to come in already with three more potentially in the cards and a certain newspaper thinks they know what one of those names is.
Bolton Wanderers found themselves 2-0 down in a must-win match at home to Blackpool. The starting lineup that Dougie Freedman put out raised questions from the fans as the three changes, some necessary and others not, were certainly unexpected
Fan consensus seems to be a generally positive attitude towards a better 2013 and with it, a return to the top flight. Zat Knight, however, has issued a warning as he realizes the scale of the challenge that is ahead for Bolton Wanderers.
"I can't see the future so I don't know what will happen to me. One thing is for sure, I am contracted to Bolton and I feel good here." That is what Adam Bogdan told a Hungarian news website when asked about his future at the Reebok.
It was a pretty bitter pill for Bolton Wanderers fans to swallow. An awful start for the men in white coupled with an incredible comeback was not enough to take the Trotters to the playoffs as they would see their season end with a 2-2 draw.
It's fair to say that an SKD goal at the death to send Bolton Wanderers into the playoffs would have been the perfect ending to the captain's Trotters tenure. That never had a chance of happening as the captain was correctly left out of the squad.
It was the be-all and end-all match for Bolton Wanderers and the occasion could not have started worse for the men in white. A nervy and tense affair would see Bolton Wanderers start in the worst way possible before getting it back level.
Make or break. This is it. The season's final day is here and the play-offs are in Bolton's hand. Wanderers are without Craig Dawson for the first time and will look to Tim Ream to fill that hole.
Bolton Wanderers will play their final match of the regular season in front of a full house at the Reebok Stadium. The Blackpool match, which is the be-all and end-all in terms of playoff implications, has been officially sold out.
The Trotters are expecting close to a full house at the Reebok as tickets are going fast. Dougie has confirmed that the team is prepared and the fact that the players are eager to thank the fans for their support over the course of the season.
The eve of the (regular) season's final match is here and, barring a freak set of results, it's in Bolton Wanderers' hands. Three points would certainly make things much less tense but in order to do that, they will have to overcome recent history.
Via a report from the Mail, Bolton Wanderers and Dougie Freedman are very, very interested in Crystal Palace midfielder Owen Garvan. The 25-year-old has been with Crystal Palace for three seasons and will be out of contract this summer.
We knew that USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann was keeping tabs on Stu Holden's progress and now, with the Gold Cup quickly coming up this summer, fans will get to see Stuart in a United States shirt once more.
Bolton Wanderers 2012/13 season is not yet over but the manager has confirmed that he will be adding to the squad and doing it soon. Speaking at his pre-Blackpool match press conference, Dougie Freedman made mention of some moves.
Ahead of Bolton's last match of the (regular) season, we had the chance to ask Wanderers' american midfielder Stu Holden about his recovery efforts, working his way back into the first team, a bit of nostalgia, and goals for the near future.
Normally, this sort of thing isn't our cup of tea but the 2013 edition will feature a Bolton legend in Kevin Davies. Davo has just been confirmed as a member of the PFA All Stars team and will play alongside Gaizka Mendieta, Michel Salgado, and more.
For their latest Mercurial Vapor colorway, Nike have done just that. The brand new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX SE recalls the boot silo's silver, blue, and yellow origins by recreating a classic and highly sought after look.
Over the course of the last three months, Dougie Freedman has shown that he was the correct choice for the managerial post at Bolton. The manager and his team have taken the Trotters from a close call with the drop zone to a potential top-five finish
Bolton Wanderers have signed up a pair of professional freestyle footballers to entertain the crowd during match days at the Reebok Stadium. Chris Eagles, Stu Holden, David Wheater, and Darren Pratley all made appearances in the introduction video
At best, Blackpool can reach the top half of the table and (if all of the results go their way), crack the top ten. All in all, they really don't have much of anything to play for. That said, Dougie will not be taking the Tangerines lightly.
In a recent radio interview with Tower FM, manager Dougie Freedman cast doubts that Davies would play a part in the regular season's final match.
After impressing on trial in two reserve matches, Alex McQuade has officially signed on with Shrewsbury Town, the club that Tom Eaves spent time on loan at.
Despite the confirmation from the manager that the Trotters have not yet bid for the versatile, young Australian defender, the boss has publicly stated that the club are indeed interested in Sainsbury's services.
Unfortunately, what Darren Pratley provides in effort, he often lacks in ability with the ball at his feet. It was arguably that lack of technical poise that saw two of Bolton's best chances against Cardiff spurned.
There is no room for sentimentality during the Blackpool match as it is essentially do or die for the men in white. One of the positives ahead of this clash is the fact that the Trotters' destiny is in their own hands... mostly.
It was Chris Eagles that spearheaded Bolton's attack. The winger took just one shot over the course of the match and what a vital shot it was.
The problem with loan players is that they often leave just as quickly as they came in. It's much of an issue when it comes to the likes of much-maligned Butterfield but when those loan players become some of the most influential parts of the team.
Not one Bolton Wanderers player in that list. You may be asking yourself: "well, who deserved to be?" Easy. Chris Eagles and Jay Spearing.
It was very much a party atmosphere in Cardiff as the Red Dragons were all set to lift a trophy, no matter the match's outcome. If you were not one of the 1,700 Bolton fans that made the trip, here are the match highlights for you.
