Soapbox: from the banks of the Plate to Bolton Reserves

The first sentence of Pete Sixsmith‘s report from last night’s Reserves game may be evidence that he is finally losing it.

Soapbox: where were you?

“I’m not a great fan of Lee Cattermole (go back to Wigan away last season for my then assessment of him) but he made a great start in a red and white shirt. “
