News is thin today, so a small piece to keep things going
First can I say, in reference to yesterday`s article, I didn`t mean it to be a doom-and-gloom piece. Like I said, I`m not throwing the towel in or anything like that. I have an obligation to put something in-print for you good people and when they say Bolton Wanderers courses through their veins, that was the only thing coursing through anything of mine.
I thought I`d feel a bit better today, but I don`t. I think someone said as soon as QPR come to town and we beat them, things will seem different. Let`s see?
Right, today`s news is pretty thin, I`m afraid. Apparently, if Tim Ream is shipped out the Reebok door, guess what? We could sign Chris Baird! What? Chris Baird? He used to play for Fulham; full-back, 31-years-old. Is that not the name you were hoping to hear? Coming in or going out of the Reebok? Both??
So let me get this right? You would rather let go a defender who can`t even make the bench (say, for example, Matt Mills) leave the club and we recruit a defender who could go straight into the starting line-up, rather than play back-up to our starting full-backs? That would seem a better, more logical way to go. I`m sure the reason it`s not being talked about is down to finance. Or, Dougie is plotting a swift coup for a versatile defender to replace Zat Knight in a clandestine manoeuvre?
Right, I`m going for a lie down, maybe some shut-eye and hope Eagles, Ngog and Moritz are fit for Saturday`s crunch clash. They are the creative flair of our team, right?
