Belting piece about MJ Williams on The Athletic. Had no idea he was on the verge of retirement aged 22 until Liverpool paid £150k for him to have a tendon graft from a dead donor in New York. Also mentions his contact automatically goes for another year if he plays a certain number of games next season. Well worth a read if you have a subscription or signing up to their £1 a month for 6 months offer. There are some great Bolton features on there. Certainly more insightful and informed than Mr Illes

Quite a tale.

Still only 25.

I was wondering if the surgeon was the one Ricardo Gardner went to, but I think he was called Steadman.

Steadman was in Colorado I believe. A quick Google suggests he's 84, so unlikely to still be practicing!

If you wanna read the article ^

Got my mate to send it me as he has a subscription

Great read, thanks for that. Comes across as a nice lad who’s been through a lot. Had to chuckle at the explanation as to why he’s now known as MJ (and that he doesn’t seem keen on it!)

Steadman operated on Jussi as well after that Tranmere cunt Parkinson nobbled him, didn’t he?

Fuckin love the guy. Goes about his business, puts a shift in, everything he does is just steady. First game I saw him I thought, right we mean business now.

Top player

Who was it that thought he was shit after first few games ? 

i said after the second goal at mansfield , that he and zebadee did not improve the team.

he then changed and helped us to win the game, and has gone on to be superb

1 out of 2 ain't bad.  Hopefully we don't see Zebedee again.  MJ undoubtedly improved after the first few games, he was always reliable for keeping possession but in last month or so I thought he improved his range of passing, long and short, instead of always the safe option.

Defensive mid is one position we won't be looking to strengthen.

Ok , you were really wrong then, good to know you admit it. 😁

Great read that.  Fair play to Liverpool too, paying that out for surgery on a lad who was going to be released.

Aye. My thoughts exactly. Absolute quality that.
