The decisions made at Bolton Wanderers in the last ten years have been indifferent and questionable to say the least.
Bolton started the century as a pretty solid Premier League club and it seemed that they would establish themselves as even more than that in the Big Sam era.
Allardyce attracted some continental talent to the then Reebok Stadium and the general consensus was that Wanderers were able to challenge in the top half.
Since then, it hasn’t been a decade to remember. Bolton have struggled in the Championship and even had a stint in the third tier of the English football system.
The Trotters were a standard mid-table club until their relegation in 2016, but luckily they made a fast return.
Last season, Bolton finished 21st, and this season doesn’t look great so far, so Bolton fans may have to clutch at straws.
Over the last ten years, some decisions have been poor, but some have been beneficial – here, we look at the best of those.
Do you agree, or can you think of a better decision that has been made off the pitch that has strongly influenced proceedings on the pitch?
