Dougie Freedman: Bolton boss seeing progress

Freedman is yet to taste defeat in three games since taking over from Owen Coyle but Wanderers were not quite able to hold on for three points despite twice leading through Mark Davies and Chung-Yong Lee.

"We're still undefeated," he said. "I thought it was a fantastic game of football - both teams wanted to win the game.

"To lose the lead twice is disappointing but I thought over the course of the 90 minutes a draw was a fair result.

"We played some great stuff attacking-wise. They tested our organisation for the full 90 minutes but I felt they never really cut us open over 90 minutes.

"It takes time to get to know players and to get them playing the way you want.

"We could get a few signings in January, but the mentality has changed here already. The players are willing to do different things and I've been really happy with the group.

"It takes a couple of years to get your team, which I found at Palace and it will take me time here, but I can see progress already."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
