Why Sturridge is so important to Bolton (video), Jeffren deal not over yet!

25Jul11

Why was Daniel Sturridge so important to Bolton’s cause last season? All  you need to do is look at this video to see what he did for the club. Some argue that he single-handedly kept Bolton in the top flight. Watch the video and see if you agree.

So if Bolton do lose out in their bid to land the Chelsea striker we will be sorely short on pace, ability, skill and everything else that comes in the Sturridge package. Instead, at the moment we will be relying on Davies and Klasnic to take the place of Elmander and Sturridge who scored about 20 goals between the last season in half a season each. (Elmander 10 goals from August to December, Sturridge 8 goals from January to May)

Not only was Sturridge good for goals, he was an outlet. A way to relieve pressure. He also scared the opposition. No long ball was a lost cause because a defender would always have to worry that Sturridge would get there at 100 mph. Sturridge would take the game to the opposition, sometimes too greedy, sometimes magical. He would pick up the ball in his own half and seconds later we would find ourselves on the edge of our seats as he approached the opposition goal for another self-made goal scoring chance. Without him, we will not have the goal threat that we need.

Bolton need Sturridge, or a clone! (Sturridge has been linked with a move to Spurs where Chelsea will pay Tottenham 27 million pounds to take Sturridge off their hands in return for Luka Modric – if the deal doesn’t go through then Bolton could land Sturridge as Chelsea have shown that they don’t have hi in their own plans for the season.)

Jeffren.

The press is reporting that Owen Coyle has given up on his chase to land Jeffren Suarez from Barcelona. However, I believe the deal may still be alive behind the scenes! Coyle did not rule out the possibility of signing the talented Barcelona winger saying ” if it isn’t going to happen, then we’ll move on.” If the deal was over he would have said we are not trying to sign him. Anyway, let’s wait and see!

    I often think where would we have been if Holden had been injured earlier and we had failed to sign Sturridge. Frightening thought. Very good points above.

    Arsenal fan here. Can I ask where Jack Wilshere played for you when he was on loan? Some bloggers have suggested Owen Coyle played him in centre midfield, others have said he played in a no.10 type position. Thanks for your help.

      Jack Wilshere actually spent much of his time at Bolton on the left hand side of midfield in place of the out of favour Matt Taylor.
      He did play some games in the centre too but it was as an orthordox midfield player rather than a number 10 kind of role.
      I’m pretty sure I am right on what I say but it’s from memory.

      Thanks for the question.

    Losing Holden was the main reason we did not end up a good bit higher. Don’t get me wrong, Sturridge was great at times, but the engine room was never the same after we lost Stu and that will show again, I’m afraid, during the opening gambit this term.
    Off subject . . . I still think a gamble on Owen Hargreaves would pay off if he is still available. Even if we only had him till Holden returned.

  5. Jeffren is off to the USA this week with the rest of the Barca team so it is not looking like he is planning a move to the UK (Pity)
