My Bolton Wanderers Player of the Year: Adam Bogdan

Dramatic scenes again, as Bogdan saves another last minute penalty. - Bryn Lennon

As our second season in the second tier of English football fizzles out in mid-table mediocrity we feel that it’s time to separate the wheat from the chaff.

With only 4 games remaining in the SkyBet Championship it’s fairly obvious to see that Bolton Wanderers aren't going up or even down and this is partly down to our very own Hungarian shot-stopper.

Back in late October last year Bogdan had an injury set-back, tearing a knee ligament  in training. This forced the 26-year-old out for a couple of months and gave fan favourite Andy Lonergan a run in the team, where he put in a good account of himself. Once Bogdan had regained full fitness all sorts of debates arose with the majority of social media uniting against him.

Bogdan even conceded 8 at the Amsterdam Arena earlier on in the season, but that’s not changed my view on him. He’s a great goalkeeper. Ever since his comeback he’s proved all his doubters wrong with some excellent performances. He’s since gone on to make 29 appearances in the league and has been an integral part of Dougie Freedman’s plans.

With Freedman already stating that Bogdan is ‘One of the best keepers in the league’ and the Hungarian extending his contract until 2015 we’re bound to see more of him. Who can forget his dramatic 94th minute penalty save to prevent Wigan’s Jordi Gomez stealing the local bragging rights. Combined with his consistency and skill at denying people from 12 yards he’s certainly stood out as my player of the year.
