Tim Ream satisfied after winning Bolton Wanderers debut

Tim Ream insists he enjoyed his Bolton Wanderers debut in victory at Millwall.

While the sometimes savage atmosphere in South East London was certainly a baptism of fire compared to the more sedate crowds of the MLS, there was no doubt he enjoyed his first taste of English football.

"It is a different atmosphere," the former New York Red Bulls defender told the Bolton News. "It was intense here. That is the way their supporters are and as a player you have to block them out. It was interesting for me, it was a little crazy.

"In the USA, you have one small section that gets into it and tries to get everyone else into it, but here you have everyone yelling.

"Everyone is part of the game. It is a good first experience for me. I was forewarned. It is a good first introduction."
