The mess Bolton Wanderers finds itself in is not new but with each twist and turn the club’s loyal fanbase are pushed further and further towards breaking point. The latest in a long line of setbacks is the ongoing ticket debacle that threatens to see Bolton’s first match of the season being played in front of an empty stadium.

Just 10 minutes before tickets for the game were set to go on sale yesterday morning, the ability to purchase them was suspended after a considerable backlash from fans over the pricing of said tickets.

It has since been announced that an update on the status of ticket sales will be made today but with such little time now until the Coventry fixture, and with the possibility of buying tickets on matchday looking unlikely,  Bolton do face the very real prospect of playing in front of about six people.

The poor organisation of something so simple like ticket sale seems to emulate the tiresome nature of the long-awaited Bolton takeover which still hasn’t been done yet.

It’s becoming ever more vital that Bolton Wanderers get their act together but with no end in sight for both the takeover and ticket debacle, it’s becoming easier and easier to lose faith, despite the awesome showing from fans at Wycombe last weekend.

With less than three days until Wanderers are due to play their first home match of the season and no a single ticket has been sold but what do the club’s fans make of the situation?

Could the ticket delay be solely about prices, or is there something larger on the horizon as this fan account speculates?

It’s easy to forget that travelling Coventry fans are being let down as well as this supporter explains.

However, this Bolton fan sums up the whole messy situation perfectly.

Whether this whole sorry ticket debacle gets sorted in time for the Bolton v Coventry game remains to be seen but we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we learn anything new, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook to never miss a thing.
