Legend. An overused word when it comes to football players.
Yet some deserve the label. One of them is John McGinlay, at least as far as Bolton Wanderers fans are concerned.
Three promotions, inspiring cup victories, full houses at Burnden Park, two games at Wembley. After years in the doldrums a small northern football club was on its way back to the big time and Bolton’s favourite adopted son was at the centre of the action.
Now, in an exclusive interview, John McGinlay talks to Manny Road. He discusses the genius that was Bruce Rioch, a White Hot night at Anfield, putting Arsenal out of the FA cup on their own turf, that special game at Hull and why he’s not exactly popular with a certain West Midlands club.
It’s an unmissable account from a player who has never forgotten what it’s like to be a football fan. First instalment tomorrow.
