Bolton fans have shared their final thoughts on Wanderers’ outgoing owner Ken Anderson.
Yesterday Bolton Wanderers fans were met with the news that the club and its parent company have been placed into administration by Flidraw, the company representing the Trust of the late Eddie Davies.
As a result, control of the club has shifted from Ken Anderson to administrators appointed by London-based insolvency firm David Rubin & Partners.
It’s safe to say that Ken Anderson’s tenure as Bolton’s owner and chairman was anything but harmonious.
In the last few months alone we’ve seen wages being paid late to players and club staff, protests outside the ground and a full-blown player strike that resulted in the cancellation of Bolton’s final home match of the season.
It is, therefore, unlikely that Ken Anderson’s time as Bolton owner will be remembered fondly by Wanderers fans who have naturally taken to social media to comment on the departing chairman.
Sad day when we are celebrating administration! But very much happy to finally get rid of the ANDERSON family out of our club! Fingers crossed that the administrators can now find some new owners for us and we can start to rebuild our club again! #freshstart #BWFC 🤞⚽️ https://t.co/4y1UMETRXB

Never understood why us fans and clubs get punished for crooks like Anderson being appointed to take charge of a football club, another club failed by the EFL #BWFC

I never thought I’d be so pleased to start a spanking new season on -12 points. Or worse.
Good riddance Anderson. Turn the page now, the rebuild begins.#bwfc

Obviously the EFL are punishing us with a 12 point deduction because of Anderson’s actions! Makes no sense… but thank god he has finally gone #bwfc.

After one of, if not the worst season in the club’s history, it will undoubtedly be a huge relief to finally turn over a new leaf and begin again, hopefully with some filthy rich owners backing the club.
Obviously, life in League One will be a lot tougher than last time with Wanderers starting on at least -12 points.
However, with the club hopefully in a more financially stable position than we’ve seen in the last few months, many will be optimistic that it can be a springboard to push the club back in the right direction again.
