Stuart Holden Update

Bolton have issued an official update on the status of Stuart Holden following his latest setback on his latest attempted comeback bid, which ended after just 23-minutes.

The American international will be having a scan on his knee and then going back to America for further 'assessment'.

Bolton's official website statement read: 'Stuart Holden will undergo a scan on his right knee before heading back the US for an assessment on the resurfacing of last summer's injury.

'The American international's progress back to fitness in a specially arranged U21 game against Everton at the Reebok on Monday night ended prematurely.

'Holden was forced off in the 23rd minute with some discomfort in his right knee.

'And he will now meet up with the surgeon who completed the operation on his right knee in the summer, following an injury sustained whilst playing for the United States during the Gold Cup.'

Maybe I am wrong but it doesn't look good for Holden does it and if he managed to return to the Bolton first-team it would be a surprise.

If he returns to the professional game, after so long and so many problems with his knee, maybe even that would be a surprise now too?

Mr Ecky sends his best to the Vital Bolton community, he's currently not well, he'll be back as soon as possible and in the meantime, he's got a staff writer to fill in for him.

If anyone has something to share in the meantime (this gives a genuine Bolton point of view from a Bolton fan!) feel free to fire an email through.

Please include your username so I can put that to it though.

Yes very very sad. However, one Peter Reid overcame such a succession of injuries and after joining Everton in a cut price move won every domestic honour, a Cup Winners Cup in Europe and played in the World Cup for England. Also had a relatively injury free long career. Heres hoping for Stu as medicine is way better than when Reidy was a lad. Though I admit it does not look great.

You sometimes think that OC or BWFC in general must have broken a very big mirror with this squads luck. Chungy, Muamba, Holden, Mavies all out or retired with career threatening injuries or health issues add to that Sean Davis, Wheater,Tierney, and Mears and it becomes very Twilight Zonesque for the club.

Oh and Riley and Vela. Forgot them. That is nearly a team.

Some of you seem to have forgotten Dean Holden - promising fullback until his injury. Don't forget Nicky Spooner and also Gavin McCann. In the 70's we had Alan Waldron and Garry Jones. Micheal Rickets suffered from a bad injury and was never quite the same.Nathans Phase talks about Reidy, but he played all his best games at Bolton where he was a lot faster and more skillful than he was Everton. We had the best of him.
