Dougie Freedman: Has seen Bolton hit rock-bottom in the Championship

Dougie Freedman: Has seen Bolton hit rock-bottom in the Championship

The Trotters prop up the Championship table eight games into the 2013/14 campaign, with just three points collected so far.

They are one of only two teams in the second tier yet to pick up a win, along with Sheffield Wednesday, and have already shipped 16 goals.

Freedman has fallen under mounting pressure after failing to turn the tide, but the 39-year-old remains defiant and has made it clear that he will not be walking away from the challenge.

He said: "When you're in a professional game and you've worked at a professional level, you don't have that inside you. It's not inside me.

"We turned a lot around last season when we gathered some momentum. We are slipping over in certain matches but we're not falling down."

Bolton's next game will see them play host to fellow strugglers Yeovil and Freedman admits Saturday's encounter at the Reebok Stadium has become a must-win.

He added: "It is a big match and simply a match we've got to win.

"The good thing is that these players can win football matches if they're focused and concentrated for 95 minutes rather than 80 minutes."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
