It's Monday and it looks like Burnley 0 Bolton 2 !
Well it's 6:30 pm now on Monday evening with news filtering down that both Mears and Eagles have accepted personal terms with Bolton.
With only a medical to follow, it now looks virtually certain both players will be playing for Owen Coyle next season, leaving the Clarets just two weeks before the new season kicks off to find suitable replacements and bring in the additional 2-3 quality players original targeted by Eddie Howe.
Any hope that the gloom around Turf Moor would be lifted today with the announcement of a new signing would appear to have evaporated unless there is a late announcement before midnight.
We had been reliably informed that a new signing was imminent this week; one that could indeed be announced as early as today.
Oh well lets see what Tuesday brings!!
