~~ After the success that Lennon had at Celtic, you knew it was only a matter of time until an English club took a chance on him….
Bolton Wanderers are delighted to announce the appointment of Neil Lennon as the club’s new manager.
Lennon, 43, joins the club after a successful four-year spell at the helm of Scottish giants Celtic, where he won three league titles, two domestic cups and led the side in European competition.
Lennon also enjoyed a decorated playing career, most notably with Crewe Alexandra, Leicester City and Celtic, as well as representing Northern Ireland on the international stage. The extensive list of high calibre applicants demonstrated how those candidates viewed the opportunity to manage the club, even in its present position at the bottom of the Championship table.
Following a process of first and second interviews with a shortlist of initial candidates, a unanimous decision was taken by Eddie Davies, Brett Warburton and Phil Gartside. The club are delighted and excited to appoint Neil Lennon. He brings with him experience at the highest level and an infectious enthusiasm to take the club forward.
He will officially take charge of the Bolton Wanderers team from Monday morning in the run up to our upcoming game away at Birmingham City. Lennon will be joined by assistant manager Johan Mjallby and first team coach Garry Parker.

~~ Convenient timing isn’t this?
‘I remember [Balotelli] was bought against my advice,’ Berlusconi told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
‘We have many champions: (Jeremy) Menez, (Keisuke) Honda, (Stephane) El Shaarawy, (Fernando) Torres, (Nigel) De Jong.
‘The base is there. And we no longer have a rotten apple in the dressing room.’

~~ People can talk as much ish as they want on social media, but the pure and simple fact is that Landon Donovan is THE best American player ever produced…… And his consistency both domestic and internationally speaks not just through his stats, but shown through the respect of his teammates.
