Bolton boss excited by promising pair

The Bolton News has been busy working with Bolton Wanderers and keeping a close relationship with the new manager, Keith Hill. After Bolton suffered a 6-1 defeat to Rotherham, Hill asked some of his attacking players to get more defensive.

Dennis Politic and new signing Thibaud Verlinden have been very promising for the Trotters. The young pair have made a great opening impression on fans as their trickery on the ball has been exciting to see. They’ve both bagged goals already this season, Verlinden last week and Politic in a cup game. I’m sure there will be more to come.

However, Keith Hill has spoken with Marc Iles and explained how after the Rotherham game, the big loss had the new manager asking these attacking players to consider the whole performance. He’s gone on to say that he wants these players to contribute in every aspect to the team and get defensive when they need to.

Hill is excited by the pair and thinks that with the right training, getting more experience and better league preparation that they will both have great careers. He just wants to be careful which I think is quite sensible.

Plan to get over of the deficit

This now explains why Bolton managed to get a point out of the Oxford game. I trust that Keith Hill has a game plan and whatever he wants from his players he will be able to get. While some fans might get a bit sceptical about this arrangement because we finally have a style of play that includes trying to attack, it’s a sensible move from Hill because the minus points that we are in need to go.

If he keeps the style of play quite defensive until we are out of the minus points, then we can concentrate on attacking and trying to create goals in order to try and survive League one. These players have proved what they’re capable of already and have managed to impress so after Christmas, it will be great to see if their style of play has changed and if they’ve improved.
