Crowd-funding. Everybody’s bloody well at it, or so it seems.
Anyway, after being told outright that he has no future at Cardiff, Adam Le Fondre is currently in the process of securing himself a move away, with a return to Bolton reported to be on the cards.
After having a miserable time of it at the Bluebirds, the striker joined Bolton on loan for the latter half of last season, going on to score 8 goals in 16 starts to finish up as the club’s top goalscorer despite everyone else in the squad having a six-month head-start on him.
Now, in a desperate bid to get ALF back, Bolton fan Sam James has launched a Go Fund Me campaign to help raise the necessary capital to re-procure the former Reading hitman on a permanent deal.
Sam outlined the nature of his qualm to Bolton fan blog The Lion of Vienna Suite: “I am getting frustrated with the lack of funds available at Bolton at the moment, as are the rest of our fans”.
“I thought it was an idea to give our fans the opportunity to make our own signing!”

The man himself has also caught wind of the operation…
Sam is hoping to raise £500,000 to cover Le Fondre’s wages/fees, etc, though so far the running total stands at £645 (at time of writing).
We should add that, should the target not be met (perish the thought!), Sam intends to donate all the money raised to charity.
