Bolton Wanderers are reportedly hoping to sign striker, Danny Graham on loan after Cardiff City slapped a £2 million price-tag on young, Joe Mason.
The cash-strapped Wanderers- who have scored in each of their last 9 games in all competitions but have conceded 15 goals in the last 4 league outings- believe it's the forward line which holds priority and needs a boost.
If speculation is to be believed,Dougie wants to chuck a sizeable quantity of what little funds the Whites have on a striker low on confidence who's scored just once in the last 30 games.
Graham did have some joy in the Championship with Watford. In the 2010/11 campaign, Danny popped in 24 goals for the season, but since, goals have been hard to come by.
I don't really want to get too bogged down with stats and passed seasons. This is the here and now, and Bolton Wanderers are a mess. The recruitment of Graham- if successful- may turn out to be a masterstroke, pumping up both team and fans alike. But what I've seen of this current crock of 'footballers', defence is priority.
I honestly believe, if we can sure up at the back- and by sure up the back, I mean not only reduce goals conceded, but breed confidence in the rest of the team to go play rather than constantly looking over their shoulders or doing 2-or-3 different players' jobs- I think the goals will take care of themselves.
An idealistic perspective? Of course. But I'd rather recruit two full-backs on loan for £7,500 a week rather than one Danny Graham taking up £15,000 a week- or whatever he would cost.
Again, just my view. Please, give me yours...
