The stunning turn of events at the top of the Premiership will be celebrated or cried over, depending on which Manchester side you lean toward.
But at the other end of the table, this is a very bad day for a couple of U.S. internationals.
Bolton, with Tim Ream and Stuart Holden on the rosters, have been relegated after a loss to Stoke City.
We’ll have to wait and see what this means for the pair; relegated teams are generally in for a significant roster makeover due to the shifting economics of major revenue reduction.
Holden has given a provisional pledge of allegiance to Bolton, according to a piece in the club’s official website. And since he’s been hurt for almost the entire 2011-12 campaign, that wouldn’t be a big surprise. Still, there’s a lot to shake out here.
