Well that has all the hallmarks of a wasted day. Could be an interesting remainder of this term. But we're Bolton supporters. Wouldn't be the same without all the nail biting, depressing Saturdays. Thank christ I'm on duty for the next three days. At least I get to kick the station cat.

Had his best player sold from under him (again), having just found a winning formula and all you can do is slag the guy.
I do because he's a clueless fucker, he's fucked now because he'll be found out, and hopefully Ken uses the Madine money to get him fucked off.

I can imagine he will go back to playing three centre backs, with two strikers - otherwise why sign Flanagan (who is normally a full back but who can (I assume) play centre back as well?).

I can only think Walker will have first dibs as filling in for Madine with Alf alongside (or Clough if he's signed).

As for Parkinson don't be too hard on him - I don't think he had a say in selling Madine.
I don't doubt he did mate, but he'll be found out now he doesn't have a lump to hoof it to, he is a one dimensional manager with limited tactical nous, and now he has a choice, play Wilbrham, or hoof it to Clough and Walker, either way it's disastrous.

So Walker, Clough, Flanagan and Burke in - all on loans. Does Charsley count? Another loan.
Madine out for a shedload.
Couldn't have been a better day for Anderson's bank manager.

Assume Parky will be up all night reading the alternative tactics section of the coaching manual...

Or he could play/be forced into using different tactics.

Obviously he can only use the players he's got, so unless he can find an unattached like for like direct replacement for Madine, he will still have to use them - but in a slightly different way than he has.

I think the clue is the signing of Flanagan - what's that all about?

Flanagan is a right back - but can play left.

Our full backs - Little on the right and Robinson on the left have been amongst our best players this season - so why sign cover for them, when an attacker is the urgent gap to fill?

The only reason I can think of right now (and with Burke returning) is to play three at the back, with Flanagan slotting into a left wingback role and Robinson (who has had one or two defending errors recently) moving up and replacing Buckley in midfield.

So with the keeper, a back three of Wheater, Beevers and Burke, and wingbacks of Flanagan and Little - our defence is probably as tight as it can be.

So maybe we only need one holding midfielder in Henry, allowing Ameobi and Robinson to play wide of him, with Clough and Vela up front perhaps.

Now that I write it out it doesn't look that good - it seemed better in my head.

Maybe the Walker signing might fit better - with a back four - leave Beevers out - Robinson pushed up to take the place of Buckley - with Henry holding and Vela attacking mid - Ameobi right attacking mid - with Walker and Clough up front - maybe that is a better fit.


There must be some thinking behind bringing Flanagan in - and there must have been at least some thought of planning as to how to play if Madine went.

Clearly it was like for like - with going for the tall Dutch lad - plan B must have been Clough I suppose?

Maybe they will give our young striker a chance perhaps?

From an attacking perspective we've replaced Madine by borrowing Florists' reserves. 
And Clough is sheer desperation to appease the fans.
Parky must be fuming. He didn't improve midfield creativity and he hasn't got a big striker, so surely he has to go for pace and guile up front and hope they can be slick enough to play their way through? 
If Parky wanted these signings he must already have decided to switch tactics and I just don't believe that.

Who won't be able to play the final game of the season against Forest.
I can't believe it was Parky's decision to sell Madine and replace with the Nottm Forest reserves
I make it Ken's now sold Holding, Clough and Madine for around £12 million and still not paid a transfer fee

This time because we're in an embargo - though you won't find any confirmation of it from Kenneth

His style of play is direct yes, like most teams down the bottom. Your stance on Parky is ridiculous - especially given how his job is made increasingly difficult as he loses his best players.

The same guy who told me about the embargo and about Madine's desire to leave also believes that the change will bring about a different style of play - given the incomings that seems inevitable. Delighted if it happens.

Your bloke was wrong about the embargo, we put in a cash bid for the lad from Charlton according to Iles.

Do you know how embargoes work?

You can't sign anyone for cash until you sell someone for cash. You have to prove you have the means to make signings.

Do you think it's a coincidence that as soon as Madine left we started making deals?

Bless your little naive heart x

Having slept on it, I think it has been an awful transfer window for the prospects of the football team . We now have a worse attack than we had for the first half of last season in Div 3 when we had Madine, Clough and Amoebi.

Its been a belting window for Ken's bank balance though!

I don't hold out great hopes for Clough. He didn't used to like getting involved, as far as I am concerned, which is an odd outlook for a shorter than average striker, who gets knocked off the ball too easily. Even so, I wish him well, and hope both he and us, are happy with his return, at the end of the season.

Dompe wasn't offered a contract after all it seems, Kramer has been released but presumably still doesn't want to come and as far as I know, nobody apart from Madine has left. 
With 5 loanees coming in and several players running out of contract at the end of the season it looks like there will be another upheaval in the summer regardless of which division we're in.

No ive got bills to pay too, but if I sell my most valuable asset and don't spend the proceeds it will be a great month for my bank balance

Amazing how someone who had so much more to gain by making us more sustainable will be accused of leaching from the coffers. 

He is already funding the club doo if he took out what he owed he'd only have to put it back in again

Clough deal to be made permanent at the end of the season, depending on how he performs obviously. But he has indicated that he would like to stay longer than the 6 months.

Kramer signing imminent.
Karacan should be released along with C Taylor soon.
Deal in place to bring Papa Moussa Konatè to the club in the summer (Assuming we stay up)
