The Trotters are in the market for fresh faces after enduring a difficult start to the 2013/14 Championship campaign.

With the loan window open, Freedman had been hoping to dip into the Premier League ranks to bring hungry players with plenty of potential onto his books.

He has, however, been left frustrated in his efforts, with top flight clubs reluctant to part with those they use as part of a rotation policy which helps to keep first team regulars fresh.

Freedman told the Bolton News: "It's not really a question I can answer.

"Maybe it's one for the England set-up. You should ask Roy (Hodgson) what he thinks about players sitting there week in, week out and not learning their trade.

"We would like to bring in players but right now there isn't the quality and that is because the Premier League boys are keeping the players for the Capital One Cup or Europe.

"You can get the real younger players but are they the right ones just now? I think probably not."

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

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.
