I received an email today with offers for the Bolton Wanderers game on August 3rd. Well done WWFC for beginning to get proactive to get more bums on seats.
However, I am concerned that all this may be in vain as it’s looking doubtful if Bolton will be able to start the season. With only 5 contracted players and staff not being paid for nearly 5 months, the situation is looking bleak.
Various parties have been in touch with the administrators but no deal has yet been struck. Tonight’s friendly at Chester was called off as Bolton couldn’t raise a side.
In view of this situation, I wonder if WWFC have made tentative plans to play a friendly at Adams Park - maybe against a Premier League club or visiting foreign club on August 3rd?
With Oxford United playing a friendly at Ibrox v Rangers & Accrington Stanley playing Marseille, WW have just ended up with the usual teams we play pre-season. The attendances of 665 & 660 at Barnet & Woking respectively show there’s been very little appetite for these games amongst fans too. Good grief - I went to Ibiza to watch 2 WW pre-season games a few years ago.
The club needs revenue and the loss of a big gate v Bolton will be hard. However, if we can replace that with a top-quality Premier League team we will at least get some income on August 3rd. I hope the Bolton game goes ahead but my motto has always been: “Expect the unexpected”.
