Bolton’s fight for survival |MUNDIAL MORNINGS

TUESDAY 19 JANUARY 2016

Four time FA Cup winners Bolton Wanderers are a club on the
downfall.

Their year has been a disaster waiting to happen, as their
growing debt now reaches a staggering figure of £183m.

The English club has been forced to put the carpark of their
beloved home Macron Stadium up for sale, as well as some of their training
facilities and players.

They have just over a month to find a resolution to a
problem which is looking too great.

If Bolton do manage to get their numbers back in the black,
what will be left of their club?

It’s a sad reality in football which happens way to often to
the most historic of clubs.

Some of the biggest downfalls in the last decade have been
Leeds United and Portsmouth, who were almost eradicated from the football
league entirely.

SWANSEA SOAR OUT OF RELEGATION ZONE

Struggling Swansea bit the bullet last night, winning in a tight affair
against Watford 1-0.

They were a shadow of their old selves, in an unimpressive performance
where they were lucky to get all three points.

Despite all the possession and shots going to Watford, their
lack of will to commit forward bit them on the backside.

Swansea scored through Ashley Williams at the half hour mark,
a goal that Watford had no answer for.

Swansea sit one point above the relegation zone with
Newcastle United breathing down their backs.

TRANSFER NEWS

 Former Manchester United star defender Nemanja Vidic has
been released from Italian side Inter Milan.

Vidic has failed to break into the first team after
suffering a hip injury which he needed surgery for. He is a likely chance to
move to the MLS.

Leeds young gun Sam Byram has agreed on a deal to join with
West ham United. The hammers beat Everton to the deal, due to Byram’s willingness
to play first team football.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has signed a new five
year contract extension until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Despite coming under regular criticism from his own fans,
the Belgian goalkeeper kept a record of 15 clean sheets. That’s more clean
sheets than any other Premier League keeper!
