Please Mr Megson, put us out of our misery! If we had a quid for every time we have written about the fact that Nic Anelka could leave Bolton in the January transfer window, then we would be up there with Mr Abramovich in the moneybags stakes.
In the umpteenth instalment of this repetitive rumour, the Guardian reports that:
“Chelsea’s hopes of securing Nicolas Anelka during the transfer window have been buoyed, with Bolton Wanderers expected to omit the striker from their side to face Sheffield United today in the FA Cup third round.”
And if Anelka is about to pack his bags and leave Lancashire for a return to London, how will Bolton cope without him?
