So that's that.
My own personal dream of Chris Eagles making his triumphant return to Bolton Wanderers has been quashed with today's news that the ex-Manchester United winger has instead signed for local rivals Blackpool.

This sets up Saturday's game nicely, although it is not thought that Eagles will be fit to start given his lack of game time this year thus far.
Eagles, showing great humour and sarcasm, said:
"I've got to do what I love to do best, and that is to excite the crowd, score and create. What I've seen of the club and staff so far has been brilliant.
"I'm chomping at the bit. I've obviously played against Blackpool before, the fans are brilliant with the drum at home, so I'll be looking forward to that."
