Gary Megson

A Premiership manager once again? Someone want to tell me how this bloke has managed to get a job at a decent club like Bolton?

  • Large made the point about him being a "PL manager" - I just don't buy it. championship at best as he was as a player.
  • Beats me totally, I honestly can't understand it. Someone on here said before the season started that Bolton were this season's Charlton...Whoever they were they were spot on IMO!
  • don't know, but if you find out, can you tell the people in this thread:

    Same circumstances. Long serving manager who had built stabilty in the club suddenly departs - and the stability is lost almost overnight.

    You could more or less see it coming.

    Bolton have a better squad of players than we had though.

    Again though, thats from the outside looking in, I'm sure people who weren't Charlton fans felt the same about us last year.
  • "People who know football understand this appointment"

    Bolton chairman Phil Gartside

    Really Phil?
  • I've heard Megson has been linked with the Spurs vacancy

    that should be posted on the spurs board, It`ll give them something to really moan about :)
  • There's a great photo in today's Guardian of him sat on his own in the Bolton dug-out, which is festooned in Uefa Cup logos. I had to do a double take, I thought it was a wind-up...

  • Just Over 10k last night, oh dear.
  • Only pros I can think of for Megson are that:

    1. He's a long ball manager - Allardyce bought players who play well that way, Lee tried to make them play more of a passing game when they aren't the right players to do that well.

    2. Lee alledgedly 'lost' the squad, Megson's a disciplinarian who may be able to get some big egos (Diouf, Anelka, Nolan) into some kind of shape.

    That said, it's a frankly bizarre appointment - couldn't keep Albion up, couldn't keep Forest up, won one league game at Leicester in 6 weeks, somehow gets a Prem job.

    He'll have the fans, the media and possibly the players on his back from the outset - Les Reed had only the media and look what happened.
