A battling performance

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A battling performance we showed once again !
After the Wanderers unluckily were reduced to ten men !
We had the brilliance of Bergson and Fish at the back !
To the elegance of Gudjohnson alone in attack !
All of them hero`s they all played their part !
As they took the game to Charlton right from the start !
The inspirational Claus in the centre midfield !
Regularly got through the Charlton defence shield !
But the dismissal of Holden could have cost us the game !
And from that stupid moment we were never the same !
We still created chances and Gardner nearly made it two !
But he put the shot wide as he tried to break through !
And now were in the semi`s and Villa we shall play !
Lets hope our fans turn out in force and make it worth their day !

Notes

Wrote after the quarter final game against Charlton 2000 bolton produced one of their best displays to beat them despite having young Holden sent off and book a place in the Semi final at Wembley against Aston Villa.
