We need a striker
Let's hope he's up for it.

Nearly all clubs are looking out for strikers, and Bolton are no exception. Were brought in Kevin Davies and were hoping hell take this chance to re-launch his Premiership career. Whether hes able to, only time will tell. He went on loan at Millwall last season and didnt pull up any trees. Having said that, hes shown talent in the past and if he recapture his form, then hell be a worthy investment. Bolton have given him a chance and its up to him to take advantage of it. Weve even struggled for goals in the pre-season games, and yesterdays goal against Olympiakos was scored by a midfielder. Weve also been linked to the Portuguese striker Jardel. Hes certainly a quality player and had only a season or so ago been linked to a couple of potential big money moves. Whether a deal comes off or not, I really dont know.

I have my doubts about Ivan Campo. Hes re-signed and I just hope that hes committed to the cause. He was playing for his future last season but now with the security of contract under his belt, how hungry will he be? Hes turned up to pre-season looking overweight, so does he feel he did the hard work last season? Its also been raised that Ibrahim Ba is the hungriest of professionals. Hes another player whos enjoyed a high profile but injuries have robbed him over the past to seasons.

On a brighter note, its good to see Kevin Nolan raring to go and in good form. Over the past three seasons hes not been the most consistent of players however this inconsistency is something that quite a few youngsters go through. Perhaps hes now matured a bit and well see the best of the boy.
