Bolton travel to near neighbours Manchester United hoping to halt a run of five successive defeats at Old Trafford. Ha.
'We are not a dirty team. When Gary Cahill got sent-off for a mis-timed tackle against Northampton, it was our first red card for something like 18 months.`
Gary Megson refutes press allegations that he manages a bunch of homicidal maniacs.
Rodrigo Possebon will not feature after being attacked by Emmanuel Pogatit in Wednesday`s Carling Cup tie against Middlesbrough. Michael Carrick has an ankle injury, as does Ben Foster. With Edwin Van Sar and Thomas Kuszczak also doubtful, United could be forced to rely on eighteen year old 'keeper, Ben Amos. Not that he`s likely to see much of the ball.
Who else? Now fully recovered from the ankle injury sustained whilst trying to escape from Old Trafford in the summer. The Portuguese winker will face Jlloyd Samuel or Gretar Steinsson depending on which side of the pitch he operates on. Maybe he'll go out on the razzle the night before. You can only hope.
Gary Cahill returns from suspension and Johan Elmander from injury. Matt Taylor isn't match fit yet, but that hasn't stopped the wazzocks on the BBC claiming that 'if he scores:- Matthew Taylor will reach 50 club career goals' - as they've done for the entire period he's been injured.
Davies couldn't be more vilified if he took to the pitch wearing an Uzi. The big/burly/bullying/dirty/nasty/murderous (take your pick) forward is always a handful for defenders to cope with. Patrice Evra has already left the country.
Overall stats are surprisingly close. Bolton have 41 wins, United 45.
Rob 'Big Club' Styles. He's already sent Kevin Davies a yellow card by post, to save time on the pitch.
A four goal thriller. It would be a pleasant change if Bolton could score one of them.
West Ham (A) Lurve a duck.
