Bolton or Bermuda?
I'll be honest, it was a tough shout. Fly back 4,000 miles and then some to the Reebok on Saturday or go to Bermuda for a week on business (well a tiny bit of business and a lot of pleasure). I leave tomorrow for Bermuda and Saturday will seem very weird. I have pretty much nearly always gone to the first game of the season, home or away. It is a wonderful day that always starts with dreams and high hopes.
My mate Chris is going to Bolton, so he will give me regular updates because I'm sure I won't find out an awful lot about it on the island. Yesterday made my heart go all of a flutter. What an amazing day that was? Pity the poxy official site couldn't keep up though, eh? Just hope that we don't do what we did last year on the first day of the season!
It appears we are still in the market for new players. I assume the club expected to lose Jenson, but Paulo was a surprise
. And what of Konchesky
? Me thinks the transfer activity won't stop here. Curbs has got the spending bug.
So, for what it's worth with 3 days still to go, this is my line up for Saturday.
Young El Kharouri Fish Hreidarsson
Rommedahl Murphy Holland Konchesky
Subs: Anderson, Perry, Hughes, Euell, JJ
