Bolton Wanderers -- Blackburn Rovers
Another setback for Bolton, although we probably deserved a point. We gave away two penalties, both silly. It looked as if Gary Speed may have got the ball on the first one, but even if he did, he got quite a bit of the man. The second one was just stupid, I don't know what Faye was doing. And he should have scored the equalising goal as well, but he was off side. How do you line up offside on a free kick? Anelka's goal was well taken, and we should have had another along the way even before Faye's disallowed header in stoppage time. I think the squad will rue the missed opportunities. Champions league seems out of reach now, and the teams below us are catching up. If we are going to find some form, now is the time.
