Weiss Seeks Bolton Talks

Solvakian starlet Vladimir Weiss is unhappy with the playing time he has been afforded at Bolton and is seeking talks with Trotters boss Owen Coyle.

Weiss arrived at the Reebok Stadium during the January transfer window, on loan from Manchester City for the remainder of the season. The tricky winger had hoped the move would see him given more first-team opportunities ahead of the World Cup, in which he hopes to be a part of.

Speaking to, Weiss said of his disappointment: 'I am playing more often than at City but it is never more than 30 minutes and for me it is important to be in the starting line-up because that was the reason why I wanted to leave Manchester City.

'I would like to appear in the starting XI at least six times but there is not much time left until the end of this season.

'On the other hand, Bolton are a Premier League club with a big squad and I did not expect that I would have an easy way into the starting line-up. However, today I can say that I am disappointed.

'Maybe I expected a bit more from it. Well, what a shame that I'm not playing regularly again. I am trying to be patient but, maybe, I can't understand it yet.

'The coach promised me regular football but so far it has not been the case and soon I should have a chat with him about it to see what the future holds.'

The 20-year-old's home nation, managed by his father, also called Vladimir Weiss, have qualified for the World Cup finals in South Africa for the first time in their history as an independent nation, after finishing in first place in 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification - UEFA Group 3 ahead of Slovenia, Czech Republic, Northern Ireland, and Poland.

Weiss understands that although his father is the manager of the national team, he will not be granted any favours ahead of such a prestigious tournament, stating: 'I know that if I don't play, then I might possibly miss the World Cup, which would make me sad.

'Anyway, I am prepared to fight and do my best to appear in the starting XI for Bolton soon to deserve to travel to South Africa.'

Hope the lad can get his chance, he has done really well with the national team and it would be such a shame if he couldnt make it just because Bolton wont play him. Would rather have him back at City if they don't want him.

Strange how coyle fails to use both talented youngters in wilkshere and weiss. Weiss should have gone scotland or france on loan.

Why take him on loan if you're not going to play him?

This move has been an absolute waste of time so far as Weiss probably wouldn't have been much worse off if he'd stayed at City.

Seems pretty selfish of Coyle to offer him football and then not start him. He must have reassured him he would play or else Weiss wouldnt have gone.

He should never have gone to Bolton. A spell at Espanyol or Racing would have been a much better option. In fact i would have checked his progress myself.

I can understand Coyle not playing him as he's young and inexperienced and Notlob are in a desparate relegation battle. Which makes me question why we let him go to a team in notlob's predicament in the first place! Hope he does get more opportunities and then returns to us with a bit more experience under his belt so he can challenge for a regular first team spot next season, but can't see him getting much more game time than he already is.

He should have gone to Stoke the like wingers there like Etherington and ....... exactly he should have gone to Stoke. If Glen Whelan can shine there then Weiss would have been an instant hit.

i said at the time bolton was the wrong move for vlad and he should have gone to burnley when he had the chance.

should have loaned him to a MLS team... he would have been the league's highest scorer, and I might have actually watched.

Crazy to have him go to Bolton to get experience, only for him to sit around all day.

Terrible move. I've been really looking forward too seeing him on MOTD with Bolton, but he has just the same amount of time there. Its a joke

Yopu would think that the agreement in letting him go, would be that he should get to play first team football, he can sit on our Berti and get more games.
