BWFC: Transfer Story III and IV




In the phonetic-styling of Chandler Bing… Could there be any more transfer rumours?

With all these 'incomings` at the Reebok being talked about as possibilities- considering finances as they are, now driven by FIFA`s FFP coming into effect- Whites` supporters were asking, what 'outgoing` mutterings were in the pipeline. Well, now it would seem, Blackpool are weighing up a double loan move for Bolton duo Keith Andrews and Matt Mills.

The news of Andrews and Mills leaving the Reebok this season, even to Championship rivals, Blackpool will neither come as a shock or disappointment. Both Andrews and Mills moved to the Reebok Stadium last summer from West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City, respectively, but missed the second half of last season with injuries. When the pair did make the playing surface, either together or individually, they failed to endeavour or endear in equal measures.

Seasiders boss Paul Ince has previously worked with Andrews at MK Dons and Blackburn Rovers and as an added bonus, he is willing to pay the majority of Mills' wage, which had earlier sunk the move to Leeds United.

Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman is understood to be willing to let both players leave in order to free up additional wage funds for potential new signings.

I`m sure Wanderers` supporters have their own list of names they`d prefer to see make-way this summer, to make room for new faces. I also suspect Keith Andrews and Matt Mills are two names which feature heavily on that list.

I wouldn't miss either of them. Signing Mills on the wage he's getting was a stroke of an absolute absence of anything relating to genius whatsoever.

Punched the air when I saw this, just hope there's something in it. We can't afford to be carrying dead weight such as Andrews, Mills or Knight this season!

Not a bad half from the whites, unlucky goal to concede but holding their own against a decent side.

However the second half was pretty poor.

Can't agree, Gav. Admittedly, Real Betis would give anyone a game, but I thought Bolton struggled throughout, save the first ten minutes. One shot on target each half showed their inability to break Real's stranglehold in mid-field. It's perhaps harsh to say it, but we were out-thought; out-muscled; out-tackled; out-passed and out-shot. And eventually, well beaten! Initially, I wecolmed Andrews to our ranks, but tonight he had another poor game. His passing was way-ward at times and invited counter-attacks from the opposition. This caused all kinds of problems for the back four. For me, he can go to Blackpool! I just hope and pray that Holden comes back somewhere near the player he was, because we need him badly after that performance.

3 friendlies played, 2 defeats 1 draw - does not bode well, reminds me of last seasons scenario at this time. Clough, Shankly, Busby, Allardyce, Rioch, etc always treated friendlies as the real deal, if you don't what is the point ? a training session for the media ? Agree with Barney about Holden and Gav is as ever the eternal optimist, but maybe he needs to counter my dark side

As for last night, it was pretty poor. Whilst Betis are a decent team and I thought we did ok in the first half, the worry for me was the lack of changes made when we were under the cosh. I understand DF wants to get them match ready but I would have liked to see more changes earlier. Andrews should have made way earlier for a more attacking option. I cant say that anyone stood out as being particularly poor though. Tierney was impressive but Bapiste as not as good as I had expected. I agree with Mike that the record in the friendlies has been poor and they must do better starting at Turf Moor. I don't however expect to see many teams as good as Betis at the Reebok this season.
Boltongav
just as well given the outcome !! Would like to see an article about the club not related to the players or the finances, a long serving hard working employee maybe ? ( which rules out the directors) or do we have a club cat ? there has to be a feline pussy within the hallowed Reebok walls given all the rats.
aussie mike
I wouldn't be boethered if either leave but if they do we should sell them, not loan them.
