Bolton reunited?

Now on my lunch break from chopping wood at the highly recommended Loose Goose chalets in Nannup, Western Australia (, set among stunning jarrah trees. News filters through that Big Sam is busy recruiting Bolton old boys. No problems with Abdy Faye, he was a good player at Stoke and just the kind of no-nonsense nasty centre-back we need to play alongside Tomkins.

Seems we've also signed Kevin Nolan on 55k a week. The salary is too high for a 28-year-old, but he has a great goalscoring record from midfield, another area in which we've been lacking. And we might get to see his silly clucking chicken celebration when he score for us. And it's certainly quite a coup to nab Newcastle's captain. Perhaps we'll sign Andy Carroll and they can room together again...

Two players who can get us out of the Championship, though you have to hope we sign a few others who aren't associated with Bolton or Stoke if Allardyce is to win over the crowd.
