It’s safe to say that the glory days at Bolton Wanderers will seem like a distant memory to the club’s supporters, with the Trotters struggling to stay afloat in League One nowadays.
Keith Hill’s side are currently 17 points adrift of safety, and face a tough ask if they’re to retain their status as a club in the third tier this term.
But Bolton have shown improvement in recent weeks, with a number of their news signings putting in some impressive performances to see them slowly edge towards the zero point mark in the League One table.
Some of the current crop of players in Hill’s squad will be hoping that they can establish themselves as fans favourites as the season progresses, but they’ll have a tough task if they’re to join some of the best players in the club’s history.
Plenty of Bolton fans have been debating who has been their best player this decade.

Cahill probably, but Mark Davies was top notch. Shame about his injuries after

Gary Cahill – Wanderers best ever defender

Had a think and there's a fair shout for Morais. Played a vital role in getting us promoted, was one of our best players and showed he could do it at Champ level. Also has a strong cult status. Obviously there's better players but taking all variables into account

Is there any answer other than Zat Knight?

Stu Holden if his career wasn’t cut short.

Chung Yong for me, can't believe Anelka hasn't been mentioned.
