Feeney sure Bolton will climb league table after poor start

LIAM Feeney has warned his Millwall teammates not to underestimate Bolton after their poor start to the season.

Few would have expected Wanderers to be struggling at the wrong end of the table three months into the campaign, but Feeney has first-hand experience of their quality.

The winger flourished during a loan spell at the Reebok Stadium in October so knows what to expect when he returns north with the Lions this weekend.



"Anyone would be surprised to see Bolton at the bottom and I was no different, especially when I went up there and saw for myself how good the players and manager are on a day-to-day basis," he said.

"We drew three of the games I played in and things weren't falling for us. We didn't concede many goals but when we did, one was an own goal and another was a bad goalkeeper mistake, so it was just one of those spells the club was going through.

"I've got no doubts that they will start to pick up wins and push up the table. They've got a really good squad so I fully expect that to shine buy paxil online cheap through. It's just the way the Championship is – everyone can beat everyone and it's hard to pick to a winner before any game."



Feeney is likely to receive a warm welcome when he returns to Bolton, where manager Dougie Freedman remains eager to re-sign him.

But midfielder Jay Spearing will put his friendship with the winger aside for 90 minutes.

"Hopefully we can stop him taking people on and whipping those crosses in," Spearing said.

"Liam did really well and the lads got on with him. He showed the fans exactly what he was all about with the performances he put in while he was here. We were buzzing for him.

"The lads are all hoping that he can come back – but if he doesn’t then I'd wish him all the best in his career."

Feeney helped Bolton turn their season around and, whilst still below Millwall in the table, they have strung together a run of six games unbeaten.

Key to their improved form has been their defensive record. Bolton's back four of Matt Mills, Tim Ream, Kevin McNaughton and Alex Baptiste have let in three goals in five games.

    Feeney-I suggest you pack your bags. You're obviously in love with Bolton. Not interested in what you think about them. You should be interested in Millwall. Last time I looked you were still under contract to errr.... Millwall.

    Who the F*** is paying your wages and has being doing so for the last couple of years, you are employed by Millwall FC, so if selected tomorrow play to win and dont worry about a possible move to them.

    But if what NAD is reporting on this page was said by you then you are not focused on the game as a Millwall player, so stay in London and dont bother going up north and if they have a really goood squad as you are quoted why would they want you.

    How come he’s ‘’taking people on and whipping those crosses in’’ for Bolton but doesn’t do it for us? As for their defence only letting in three goals in five games, well, the Anoraks have only let in one goal in five games but we’d still beat them!

    COME ON YOU LIONS!

    hold on he is just telling his team mates and supporters they are better than their league position suggests,and not to under estimate them ,whats wrong in that.If we go in thinking they are a push over then we can become complacent.and he did put in a couple of good crosses in against burnley but where was morrison no where to be seen,also he was in lots of space on two occasions but the mid field were slow to give him the ball,when they did he had two players marking him.or perhaps i was at a different match to you lot posting before me.When we played qpr reading and burnley we went in respecting them and we matched them,so lomas and feeney are saying bolton are better than their position suggestsand we should respect that.
    that imo is not knocking or doing down millwall.

      @jim1222: Your right Jim, look what happened when we played Yeovil and thought the 3 points were already in the bag.

      From what I saw Jim Morison would have had to be sitting in the seats to get onto one of Feeneys crosses!

    Glad people are starting to realise that his heart is not with Millwall and probably never has been. We paid half a million quid for him because he had 3 decent games for bournemouth. Terrible waste of money in my opinion. He is league 1 at best. Get rid quick please.

    I feel that the way Feeney speaks here, we should not play him, as I think he'll be a liability, because he hasn't got Millwall in his heart, and as such wont play for us, but Himself.
    My thoughts a a scrappy 1-0 win is the only way to put Feeney in his place. D.A.B. (dumb arsed b******)

        One D.A.B. to another had a bit of a chuckle at that statement of yours. 🙂

    Feeney is only telling it like it is, I hope he does play and moreover scores a hat trick, that will push up the asking price.

    Feeney can praise Bolton all he likes, but if anything he needs to play his heart out on Saturday and this will be a prime opportunity to put himself on the shop window and to prove to Bolton he's worth signing.

    Thats if he gets in the side! Judging on his last performance, I'd drop him!

    Gents,
    It's grossly unfair to castigate the lad for simply pointing out that Bolton are better than their league position indicates, and as for suggesting that he will not give his all if he is selected!! There can be no better way for him to prove to Bolton that he is a worthy acquisition for them than by playing well against them. His comments show respect that's all, and are no more ignominious or damning than any of us admitting that QPR played some good football against us and we joined in now and again, which was the case from where I was sitting. Thankfully we sometimes (when the wind is in the right direction) show considerable tenacity, determination and resolve, and it's this along with the beginnings of a team who is starting to play some attractive passing football that makes me want to continue spending my hard earned going to games.
    Give the lad a break, he didn't ask to be sent out on loan then recalled!

    You lot need to remember Feeney isn't ringing up the press with this information, it's the other way around. If they're asking him these questions then what do you want him to do? Refuse to talk? Grow up.
