While news remains thin after the England games, why don’t you give me your starting 11’s for this weekend

It seems to be the consensus: the 3 new loan signings have been a success. Kevin McNaughton has slotted in at left-back like he`s been getting grass-stained at the Reebok for years. Liam Feeney has bossed the wings with guile and flair, but when the two link-up on the field, it`s like they`re brothers from other mothers.

Neil Danns- the third signing, but a relatively unsung hero- has run the no.10 role adequately without singing and dancing.

When you think of the typical no.10, you think of precision through-balls, delicate link-up play and heightened football instincts above the rest of the team. This is the Championship, however, and unless you are playing free-flowing football at the top of the table, the typical no.10 is a luxurious member of your starting 11.

Bolton Wanderers are by no means playing free-flowing football at the top of the table, so Neil Danns has been the perfect no.10 for our needs. Just behind the lone striker, Danns has definitely tried to play imaginative through-balls and creative link-up play- not always succeeding- but along with his attacking efforts, he`s tracked-back, marked-up and got in with some tough tackles.

Now, from the horse`s mouth, it would seem that Andre Moritz is available for selection again after weeks on the sideline with a torn groin. Wanderers` supporters haven`t seen much of Moritz in a Bolton shirt, but it can be safely said, the Brazilian playmaker is a typical no.10. Creative on the ball with a through-pass securely tucked up his sleeve; Andre can be an exciting and productive asset. But as dazzling as his play can potentially be, the boy is not known for his tracking-back, marking-up and tough tackling.

With Feeney almost certainly securing one of the wings for himself- while he remains a Wanderer- Robert Hall chomping at the bit for the other wing, Chungy & Eagles peering through the window and now Moritz folding his arms and sitting up straight, Bolton suddenly find themselves with an abundance of like-minded players.

What would you do? Who would you play and where?

Give us your starting 11`s for this Saturday? and yes, you can drop Bogdan if you want.
