AS Bolton prepare to face Manchester United tonight, here’s an interesting nugget of info for anyone wondering what their former manager Sammy Lee is up to these days.
Yes, as you can clearly see from the picture below, he’s playing Wilfrid Brambell (alias Albert Steptoe) in The Curse of Steptoe and Son on BBC4 tonight.

Whether Lee’s short tenure as Bolton boss may have been ultimately undermined by Gary Speed shouting “you dirty old man” during his team-talks, we shall never know.
What I do know is this: If anyone suggests that the Reebok Stadium, like Oil Drum Lane, is a home for old bits of scrap that no one else wants, they are being very unfair.
