New, comment

In the first of a long LONG new series, we look at each player in depth and review their contribution to our downfall

Here we are. It's the summer and we are looking back at each and every player who made an appearance for Bolton Wanderers during the 2015/16 season.

First up is Ben Amos.

Appearances - 40

Amos was signed by Neil Lennon to be his undisputed no.1 goalkeeper - a position he held throughout the season, injury and suspension aside.

Minutes Played - 3521

With little or no competition, the former Manchester United goalkeeper's position was guaranteed throughout and this has led some to accuse him of a Kevin Nolan-esque complacency. I am not sure whether I agree with that, but more competition is always a good thing and so whoever our new manager is I hope he addresses this weakness when he can.

Goals Conceded - 63 (1.58 per game)

Amos was sat behind the worst defence in Wanderers history. Dorian Dervite, David Wheater, Prince Desir Gouano, Derik Osede and Rob Holding all, to differing extents, offered little to no protection for the goalkeeper and contributed to his appalling goals conceded per game rate.

Review

Points won per game - 1.33

Pass completion rate - 41.6%

Bookings - 2

Red cards - 1

Overall Season Performance - C+

The plus is for being a ginger. Good on him.

Must do better next season.
