Chris Flanagan: Bolton recruits can boost Burnley

Marvin Sordell

IT is four years since Bolton Wanderers stayed in the Premier League thanks to a rather significant arrival from Turf Moor.

In those days, the traffic between Burnley and the Reebok Stadium was one-way. First and most controversially Owen Coyle, then Sandy Stewart, Steve Davis, even the physio. Later Robbie Blake, Chris Eagles, Tyrone Mears.

Many of Burnley’s most crucial assets lost to the club a few miles down the road.

The Clarets suffered because of it. Without Coyle they were relegated from the top flight, while Bolton survived.

Jack Wilshere and Stuart Holden shone for the Trotters, having previously been lined up to sign for Coyle at Burnley.

Slowly but surely, though, the tables started to turn. By the end of this season, that process could be complete.

After Coyle’s initial success at Bolton, also including an FA Cup semi final, things did not go well.

They were relegated, with Mears breaking his leg within days of his arrival at the club and Eagles struggling to find top form.

Back in the Championship, Eagles missed a pivotal penalty in a defeat at Millwall and Coyle was sacked days later.

Neither Eagles nor Mears enjoyed happy times under Dougie Freedman, and both were released in the summer. Both are still without clubs as things stand.

After Burnley’s promotion to the Premier League, now the traffic is moving in the other direction.

With Bolton keen to cut their wage bill, Marvin Sordell was allowed to join the Clarets after struggling to fire at the Reebok. Coyle had signed him for £3m midway through the 2011/12 season, but the former Watford man surprisingly played only 39 minutes in the Premier League as the club were relegated.

After that there were stories of the Londoner being homesick, then an incident in Coyle’s final match at Millwall when Sordell received racist abuse from a Lions fan.

His brave decision to report it appallingly led to further criticism from some supporters of the London club. Much of that was played out on Twitter, a social media tool that new boss Freedman eventually tried to persuade Sordell to curb – believing it was acting as a distraction.

Sordell is a sensitive character – an avid book reader who has set up the Marvin Sordell Foundation – and if Burnley can restore his confidence there is clearly a talented striker waiting to emerge.

The 23-year-old’s best form came under Sean Dyche at Watford.

Sordell is not the only one to have arrived at Burnley this summer after time at the Reebok.

Freedman’s top summer target, Lukas Jutkiewicz, moved to Burnley from Middlesbrough despite a successful loan period with Bolton last season.

Matt Taylor was another to join the Clarets. Never relegated from the Premier League during his career, it was only when he was sold to West Ham that Bolton dropped out of the top flight.

Craig Dawson could also potentially make the move, having been a highly successful loan signing at the Reebok Stadium two seasons ago. Bolton tried to recruit him again, but failed.

There will be a significant Bolton presence in the Burnley squad this season, and it could yet make the difference.

If they do help to keep the Clarets in the top flight, 2010 will seem a very long time ago.

It's odd that Freedman didn't do much better given the quality in the squad. On paper they were much better placed for promotion than us every season since they came down. It looks like either the debts or FFP have caught up and it's a sign of the progress we've made that we're cherry picking the quality. Eagles was a huge loss, Coyle divided opinion, but in retrospect both have been replaced with better, Sordell could prove a very shrewd move.

Hey hey, here it is like I said, todays comedy gold. Not much to write home about is it, trying to be like Bolton. And like the article says, Bolton, who your ambition is to emulate, only managed to then get relegated soon after and now have massive debt. Read that as tumoil. And you all say I talk rubbish.

So he then chose to move to Bonleh from Bowton. Bright spark.

Sounds like a real prospect this one.

Respect your view but if you look at say www.dailydot.com or other sites for anti-trolls the old 'do not feed' rule isn't quite so straightforward. The website hosted by this online bully is known, his IDs are known. He reveals more and more. I think a link to his name will be posted somewhere at one point. Not so that people are aggressive or threaten him, but that's the one thing that terrifies him and feeding him brings the reactions that make that more likely. So yes don't feed makes sense but if a fightback is possible then stuffing the tramp until he's nailed is another option.

Read that back to yourself and see if it makes sense. Makes absolutely non to me. Or probably any of the others you simply refer to as 'him'. Are you religious in some way? You're chasing shadows buddy. Meanwhile your marquee signing has just realized he's made a whopper and Bonleh isn't on the Central Line. Apparently now crying to his mum on the phone. Still, on the bright side he might get to add to his 39mins of top flight action.

You know, you alone seem really quite sad. You sit there all day long trying to nasty people off a football chat site without ever uttering a thing about football, spouting bile and ill feeling in every sentence. I think you could do with some self help for your futile behaviour. Your 6-fingered brethren as given you some good advice above and I recommend you should take it for your own good. Leave this site to those of us who wish to put it to good use. Some of us are genuinely concerned about the strategy to recruit a player known to be unhappy in the north west and yet with only 39 minutes of Premier League experience. On this lost young man all your hopes are supposed to rest and he is supposedly the beacon of light for your future. Quite baffling.

Well done for posting with some football comment. Bravo. For hungry I think you mean homesick, a manager still unproven at the top level though admirably (or rather stupidly) trying to better his name with Championship reserve players, home support restricted to a small capacity though won't sell out as your Directors are fleecing the walk-ins. Non of this is good news
