Albion midfielder Keith Andrews has been told he could have a future back at Bolton.

The Irish international misses tomorrow’s trip to the Reebok as a condition of his loan deal.

Dougie Freedman praised Andrews, 33, for going elsewhere to get more regular playing time – and revealed Wanderers are helping pay his wages.

The Bolton boss has kept the door ajar for a return to the Bolton squad next season for Andrews, who is under contract until summer 2015.

Freedman said: “I have spoken to Keith and, at his age, he wanted to play football, which I respect.

“He wasn’t one of those who wanted to sit around so we let him go out on loan and sponsored the deal.

“I expect him back here this summer and we will take it from there. If he shows what he is capable of showing in the summer, it is a different season and we can look at it again.

“I’ve had no contact with Brighton. You never do. It is always through agents and chairmen.

"I don't disagree with Keith (for going) and I respect him for that.”

To be fair to him (and I'm no fan) why would he say it at any other point in the season?

The thing that gets me is this tired and hackneyed cliche of a phrase "at his age, he wanted to play football." This is said of rookies, established players, senior pros... at what age does a player NOT want to be playing?

This is not the first time freedman has tried dirty tricks ahead of a game with us ,he was the same at palis ,he knows players talk about future contracts at this time of the season ,we had a thread about Wards future with us ,only a day or two ago ,KA has not had a consistent run in the team recently ,certainly not enough to start a long distance appraisal of his Bolton future ,hence my belief it is muck stirring !.

He was probably asked a question and answered it. I applaud your anti-Palarse slant but I suspect you are wrong in this case. It was probably just a journo doing his/her job.

Exactly - the Bolton manager asnswering a question at the Friday press conference in a very non-commital manner about a Bolton player who plays no part in tomorrow's match....

No need for the smelling salts over this little piece. Tough game coming up though, so we might need the salts then!

I find it hard to see the point of asking a question in a pre-match press conference ,about a player not involved with either team ,not much of a reporter ,unless he was from the local rag and asked to put the question ,might as well ask Oscar about Bobby Zamora !.

DF is only answering a perfectly logical question. Keith is involved with both clubs but not playing tomorrow.
My guess the main reason for him being with us on loan is that he wasn't going to figure with Wanderers and therefore they wanted him off the payroll (partially) to release funds for other players.
Keith gets game time, we get a decent player and Bolton get help with FFP rules.
Everyone's happy. UTA

Blimey, if you think this is Freedman's idea of dirty tricks then we have nothing to worry about :-) How is it going to affect either tomorrow's match or the rest of the season?

Re Ward, any talk from/about him regarding his future has not exactly had a negative impact on his performances, has it?

ANYTHING that detracts from the job at hand ,will ultimately be a hindrance,are you telling me ,that this has not been mentioned at training today ,or at a social level ,players that come in on loan ,build ties and friendships with the contracted players ,therefore...talk about contracts and where they will be next season ,it`s human nature ,whilst this is going on ,concentration on tomorrows game is ,even if only slightly ,going to be affected .

From a Bolton press perspective, I suppose it's a reasonable question given that Andrews is performing well enough to get regular game time with a fellow Championship team that is doing rather better than the club that loaned him out...

If this is Freedman's best attempt to derail our season with psychological warfare, he has a lot to learn in the dirty tricks department.
More likely a reporter picked up on the only factor currently connecting the two clubs, and Dougie provided what is actually a very noncommittal answer.
I could be wrong of course.
Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they are not on your case!

Andrews, a future with Brighton or with Bolton, more chance of it being with Bolton, or another club, IMHO.
Bolton cut their wage bill when they allowed him to join us, but they are still paying some. Brighton, we could assume, are paying the bulk of his wages and that's like renting a house whilst you save up to buy one. At the end of the season he goes back and our, 'rent,' money goes with him, I think for next year we might prefer to buy his replacement.
If we enter into a season long deal for a player next year I would hope that it would be a striker. There is a tangeable benefit from borrowing a striker, goals, and goals are what get you promoted. Decent strikers cost big money to buy but renting one, that scores, becomes cheaper with every goal he gets as he might help with cup runs, and they make money, and possibly get us a massive payoff with promotion. Decent midfield players are more readily available and cost much less.

The thing that gets me is this tired and hackneyed cliche of a phrase "at his age, he wanted to play football." This is said of rookies, established players, senior pros... at what age does a player NOT want to be playing?

That's a bit of an unfair question as most of the strikers we have bought have been for backup and are never planned to get a lot of playing time.

I think you make my point, strikers that can hit the back of the net don't come along every day. We could buy what we hope is a prolific goal scorer, spend 2.5 to 3.5 million, or we could borrow one at a cost of say, 15k a week.
The FFP requirements will free up some players in the english market and due to our sensible approach to spending we will have funds but maybe not a bucket load. Buying or borrowing a striker is a gamble, they either will meet expectations or won't, but to gamble what could be as much as 50% of our transfer budget (guessing at 6 to 7 million) could be dangerous. We could buy a god replacement for Andrews for around a million or less.

This is not meant as criticism of those involved but 33 comments on here (so far) for a complete non-story!
I've jumped on here for my regular, long distance fix of pre-match info to find a story about someone who isn't playing tomorrow who may, or may not, be available in the summer and who may, or may not be wanted by either club.
As someone has suggested, Freedman has been asked a boring question, probably by a local Bolton reporter and has given a fairly stock answer. Given the overall circumstances, it's not exactly strategic mind games as some have suggested and if it was such an important topic, then why didn't The Argus ask the same of OG?
Please, please, PLEASE can those who shape the editorial perspective of the paper and this site, bear in mind that games like this are rather important in relation to a very important run-in. To headline a hypothetical question that isn't even answered in a way that gives it perspective, on someone who won't be involved, is very, very poor.
Debate it by all means on a slow Tuesday, but not immediately prior to the latest 6-pointer.
(Another) rant over.
Thanks

As someone has suggested, Freedman has been asked a boring question, probably by a local Bolton reporter and has given a fairly stock answer. Given the overall circumstances, it's not exactly strategic mind games as some have suggested and if it was such an important topic, then why didn't The Argus ask the same of OG? Please, please, PLEASE can those who shape the editorial perspective of the paper and this site, bear in mind that games like this are rather important in relation to a very important run-in. To headline a hypothetical question that isn't even answered in a way that gives it perspective, on someone who won't be involved, is very, very poor. Debate it by all means on a slow Tuesday, but not immediately prior to the latest 6-pointer. (Another) rant over. Thanks Albion In Staffs

Bolton cut their wage bill when they allowed him to join us, but they are still paying some. Brighton, we could assume, are paying the bulk of his wages and that's like renting a house whilst you save up to buy one. At the end of the season he goes back and our, 'rent,' money goes with him, I think for next year we might prefer to buy his replacement.
If we enter into a season long deal for a player next year I would hope that it would be a striker. There is a tangeable benefit from borrowing a striker, goals, and goals are what get you promoted. Decent strikers cost big money to buy but renting one, that scores, becomes cheaper with every goal he gets as he might help with cup runs, and they make money, and possibly get us a massive payoff with promotion. Decent midfield players are more readily available and cost much less.
Please remind me Vegas; when did we last borrow a striker who scored goals for us?
I think you make my point, strikers that can hit the back of the net don't come along every day. We could buy what we hope is a prolific goal scorer, spend 2.5 to 3.5 million, or we could borrow one at a cost of say, 15k a week.
The FFP requirements will free up some players in the english market and due to our sensible approach to spending we will have funds but maybe not a bucket load. Buying or borrowing a striker is a gamble, they either will meet expectations or won't, but to gamble what could be as much as 50% of our transfer budget (guessing at 6 to 7 million) could be dangerous. We could buy a god replacement for Andrews for around a million or less.
Vegas - In your above post you say "There is a tangeable benefit from borrowing a striker, goals, and goals are what get you promoted". I therefore repeat my question; "when did we last borrow a striker who scored goals for us"? And if you reply "Bobby Zamora" I will reply "I think you make my point".

I am agreeing with you, IT IS HARD to find a goal scorer, borrowed or bought. There isn't ny conflict between what I wrote and your reply, I guess we are making the same point but from different angles.
I would prefer to borrow striker X rather than buy him, unless we have the money to buy a proven scorer of note, money I am not sure we will have as proven strikers cost big moeny.
Now I doubt ths will happen, as othes have told me so, but it might help to explain my point in a clear way.

Man U sign two strikers, big money signings, they hold on to two others, now would keeping Lingard be really needed? If we could sign him on a season long loan, I think that would be better than spending half our budget trying to sign him. Now yeah maybe an unlikely scenario to explain my point but I think you can get my drift.

I am talking about bringing in a striker that has done it at our level in recent times, maybe one who was loaned out by a prem club, but one the parent club want to keep but would be happy letting him come to us for a year. The only other option is to buy such a player but we might need that money for two or three other lads.

I think Andrews was signed as a replacement for Hammond. However, he has not been as influential as we would have liked, so I have no strong feelings about retention. He is certainly not first on OG's team sheet.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they compromise on the penalties, Vegas, because the fines need to be pitched at a level that will not bankrupt the Premier League.
Picture the scenario: 10 top flight clubs including the three promoted sides going into administration when their debts, doubled by FFP fines, put them out of business.
Half of the Premiership waiting for the receiver, because who would rescue these 'Financial Fair Play casualties', when they are not allowed to operate in the same way as any other business, precisely because of FFP rules?
Points deductions are impractical because of accounting dates, and player embargos, as you have pointed out recently, are no deterrent if clubs can do all their strengthening in advance.
I think maybe we have only seen the tip of of the iceberg where club finances are concerned, and this story has a long way to run yet.

The sad thing is there is not a lot the Argus can do about it.Some even phone the paper like Ex-pat saying they are going to kill themselfs if the Argus don't remove people.I mean how sad is that.Get a life its a big sad evil world out there.
Maybe if the trolls left......
Obviously FreeTears would like to site just fror Trolls and the half empty brigade
But i get 2 thumbs up you get nothing lol hahaha.Get a life man.
Good point - the Argus really should stop people being able to give their own posts the thumbs up. It shows a complete lack of faith in ones own scribblings.
