Spearing praise for Feeney

Bolton's players were "devastated" when Millwall recalled loanee Liam Feeney, according to Jay Spearing, who is hopeful his former team-mate will have an off day when he returns to the Reebok Stadium this Saturday.

Winger Feeney helped breathe new life into Dougie Freedman's struggling side earlier this term as part of a triumvirate of loan recruits which included full-back Kevin McNaughton and midfielder Neil Danns.

While the latter two remain at the Reebok Stadium, Feeney was recalled from his three-month stay with parent club Millwall at the end of October, much to the disappointment of Spearing and his team-mates.

The Lions visit Bolton, who are still looking for their first home win of the season, this weekend and the hosts know they will have to prepare for a man who helped kickstart their current six-match unbeaten run.

Speaking after being named Championship Player of the Year at the Northwest Football Awards, Spearing said: "He was a great lad, he did wonders for Bolton.

"The lads got on with him really well and we were all devastated that he left, sometimes that's what happens in football.

"If he plays Saturday we'll show him the respect but hopefully he won't be scoring any goals."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
