Dougie Freedman has had to make some 'tough decisions' already this summer by moving on some high earners.
In all honesty though the majority of players released are players that really hadn't offered too much to the club over the past season or so, but had been drawing a very good weekly, monthly and yearly salary regardless!
A need to 'balance the books' is essential for the club.
He's told the Bolton News that the club will not be 'held to ransom' but rival clubs or agents and if that means that he has continue to be patient in his efforts to sign players, maybe even sometimes miss out of them, he'll do that.
In January he could have signed Liam Feeney from Millwall, but they quoted Bolton £250,000. That amount was refused and by waiting until the summer he was signed on a free transfer and this is something that he will continue to do if required.
Sometimes you have to take what can be viewed as a calculated risk but the club must always come first really.
I would have to say that I fully agree with Freedman's views and ways of thinking and working in the transfer market what about you?
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.
