Local newshound and sometime author of crappy fiction, Neil Bonnar, has tonight tweeted that Bolton Wanderers will have to suffer the absence of talisman midfielder Lee Chung Yong for the next month.
Chung-Yong Lee missing for a month. We look at the situation tomorrow #bwfc— Neil Bonnar (@NeilBonnarBN) November 26, 2014
As usual, half-a-tale Bonnar has his knickers in a twist when rightly called up on the tweet by Bolton fans.
His childish responses include:
and this gem:
In January Chung-Yong Lee is competing in a football competition called the Asia Cup. Asia is a continent. Thought I'd better clear that up.— Neil Bonnar (@NeilBonnarBN) November 26, 2014
Chungy has of course been Wanderers' best player of late, with his upturn in form a direct consequence of the management techniques of new boss Neil Lennon.
His absence during the upcoming Asian Nations Cup thingy will be keenly felt. The competition begins on 9th January 2015, with the final to take place in Sydney, Australia, in on 31st January.
A long time.
Wanderers of course are also without Mark Davies meaning that our midfield is without two key components, and then in turn without much of a creative spark.
Whilst reserves such as Josh Vela can do a job in that part of the pitch, it now seems even more likely that Wanderers will need attacking reinforcements.
You know who I'm on about.
Lenny - get on it bro.
