    Ha, just showed the headlines to my better half and she said straight away, "Oh, like when we were Keane's Ipswich."

    Well at least Villa can forget briefly about their off field shenanigans by cruising to a comfortable opening day win against a City team that will no doubt consist of Eric Lichaj, Dean Windass, countless 17 year olds and me and my mum.

    Seriously, put everything you own on us to go down. It's as inevitable as a celebrity death after an Aaron Ramsey goal.

    Bolton still in bother then.

    PLAYERS at Bolton Wanderers are boycotting tomorrow’s friendly against St Mirren because of unpaid wages and bonuses.

    A statement issued from the squad via The Bolton News this evening states players have taken a stand over what they feel is “totally unacceptable” treatment from the club.

    It read: “Due to circumstances beyond our control, we as a team have decided with deep regret we will not be playing tomorrow’s game against St Mirren.

    “We have been put in an impossible positon which has forced our decision, and we would like to explain our reasons why.

    “Over the past two seasons we as a club have experienced unprecedented success in first achieving promotion to the Championship, then staying in the league last season.

    “This was achieved despite extremely difficult circumstances. All players, current and past, who were contracted to the club have contributed to this success.

    “Over the course of the two years on numerous occasions contracted players have not been paid on time. This has culminated in certain players not receiving their June wage.

    “On each occasion this has happened we have received no notification or an explanation as to why. We feel this is totally unacceptable after a huge effort from everybody over the last two seasons.

    “Regrettably, as a group, this has led to the decision. We unreservedly apologise to any supporters that have made plans to come and watch the game.”

    Wanderers issued the following statement, confirming the fixture has now been cancelled.

    "Bolton Wanderers Football Club can confirm that Saturday’s friendly game against St Mirren has been called off.

    "The football club would like to apologise for any inconvenience this will cause."
