Please Let this Rumour be True
The rumours that surround the transfer window are seriously irritating. They usually involve your favourite players being linked with other clubs. Just occasionally they give you hope and this is the case with Kevin Nolan. It`s been reported over the weekend that Sam Allardyce is set to make a bid for the midfield chubster.
Opinions on Nolan are divided. Some fans have been laying wreaths at the door of the De Vere Whites Hotel, to commemorate his hostile treatment from large sections of the crowd in last week`s game against Derby. Others have offered to drive him to Tyneside, which presumably explains this morning`s traffic jam at the Reebok.
We`re firmly in the driver camp. Nolan can`t pass or tackle and spends most of the time loitering on the six yard line, tripping over the ball when given chances that a five-year old would put away. His absence from the midfield position that he`s supposed to occupy has been a major weakness in Bolton`s play for at least a year. He sounds like just the man for Newcastle.
