Anelka completes £8million switch to Bolton

NicolasanelkaThe Incredible Sulk that is Nicolas Anelka has completed his move to Bolton Wanderers from Fenerbahce in a deal for £8million. Anelka, who must surely be the most expensive player in the world by now (transfers combined… I can’t be bothered doing the maths), is set to join up with fellow strop, El Hadji Diouf.

Kevin Nolan, the Trotters captain can’t wait to play with Anelka saying; "He will fit in well here and I am sure he will be a big hit with
the fans. He has always scored goals in the Premiership and will add
another threat to our attacking efforts. I’m looking forward to teaming up with [him]"

    Great player. Great buy. A bargain for such a talent.

  2. Ollie says:

    Have to agree with Lew. If Big Sam can control Diouf, then he can control Anelka no problem – and Anelka’s much more talented than the Senegalese. Still only 27 too.

  3. Joe says:

    It’ll be interesting to see how Bolton fare with a genuine world class striker in their ranks. I do fear however that his stay will be a short one. I am a great admirer of Big Sam’s ability to control egos such as Diouf’s but Anelka is one of those players whose had trouble fitting in wherever he goes. I’m not sure if his attitude will match with Bolton’s working class mentality.
