2017-18 Cleveland Cavaliers Player Preview: John Holland the insurance policy

2017-18 Cleveland Cavaliers Player Preview: John Holland the insurance policy

The Cavs’ only two-way player can fill a role when needed. John Holland, at 28 years old, is not a long-term, developmental prospect. He, as the only player the Cavs have to a two-way contract, is not the team trying to develop someone without having them take up a roster space. He’s an insurance policy. The Cavs know what Holland is. For the last two years, he played for the Canton Charge - the Cavs’ G-League affiliate - and was one of the team’s best players. On defense, he’s solid, works hard and does what he can with his six foot, five inch frame. On offense, he played off...

This Brentford Game is Huge. Come Out In Force for Wanderers

Buy tickets you slags As we all know, Bolton Wanderers are going through the worst start to a season in 115 years. We face Brentford at the Reebok on Saturday and it’s shaping up to be a massive, massive game. Do you remember the game before the first winding-up order?

It’s time we did that again. We are swimming upstream and there’s one helluva current. We need everyone possible to get their fine asses to the...

Carabararo Cup: West Ham 3-0 Bolton Wanderers - Immediate Reaction

Carabararo Cup: West Ham 3-0 Bolton Wanderers - Immediate Reaction

Sigh 1,000 hardy souls made their way to London to follow Bolton Wanderers who faced West Ham United in the Carbararo Cup. Most of them supported the club with distinction. Some mimicked explosions and made lewd requests of nearby female stewards. Some left at half time. It wasn’t much better on the field. Two first half goals put paid to Wanderers’ ambitions, as what has officially become the worst start to a season in our entire history continued. The opposition made it three in the last minute but realistically speaking, Wanderers were never at the races. As expected, Parkinson made...

At ESPN, Mike Schmitz breaks down Luka Doncic, who recently helped Slovenia win EuroBasket and could be the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft.

Preview: Ipswich Town v Bolton Wanderers

Preview: Ipswich Town v Bolton Wanderers

I’m glad Barry Knight retired through injury. Hope it hurts him every day Winless Bolton Wanderers may be bottom of the league, but we will arrive at Ipswich Town tomorrow with a spring in our step. No wins in seven. Two draws and five losses represents yet another slow start for the men in white - but that isn’t the story of the weekend for us. Yesterday, chairman and blogger Ken Anderson revealed that after 630 tedious days the club was free of the shackles of the world’s most unjust transfer embargo. There was joy and celebration everywhere - well, except for certain corners of...

Construction begins on Quicken Loans Arena renovations

Work began a day before their targeted start date. Renovations on Quicken Loans Arena have begun.

Embargo-go-gone! Freebies to Take Bolton Wanderers Forward

RELEASE THE KRAKEN Unless you’ve been living under a rock, today Bolton Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson announced that the club had finally, after 630 tedious days, been released from their transfer embargo by the EFL. About pissin’ time, I hear you cry. So what does this mean? Well we no longer are restricted to offering magic beans to new signings, though obviously we are now outside the main transfer window so free transfers will still be the way forward for Phil Parkinson and the Anderson boys. We put our heads together and came up with this quick shortlist: Joe Ledley My personal...

Bolton Wanderers Best Buds with Bad Starts

Bolton Wanderers Best Buds with Bad Starts

We have form for this We are currently bottom of the Championship. This is not fake news. Seven games in and we remain winless, drawing twice and losing four games. It’s the start that some people expected, but even the happy clappers are starting to get restless. It’s a bit early for that, if you ask me (I appreciate you didn’t ask me) but people are entitled to their opinion aren’t they? Probably. The trouble is, that a terrible start to the season is nothing new. In recent years we’ve made a terrible start our very own early season tradition. Let’s join hands and have a look...

Overall, it’s not the worst jersey, but it could be...
