Magnificent Seven Pre Match Interview: Bolton

Magnificent Seven Pre Match Interview: Bolton

Google language translator



1. We are at the 10 game stage of the new season and Bolton are already facing a relegation battle. How's the form?

The table speaks for itself. We haven`t scored in six of those ten league games and therein lies the problem. Only two goals have come from open play. One of them was an accident and the other a goalkeeping error. We couldn`t even put one past Tottenham`s zany comedy goalkeeper. Not good.

2. How did you rate Bolton's transfer dealings this past summer?

Not good either. Johan Elmander doesn`t look up to the rigours of the Premier League. Fabrice Muamba lacks a vital component - skill. Mustapha Riga has skill, but his team mates are so baffled by this that they can`t take advantage. Danny Shittu. The clue is in the name.

3. Where do you stand regarding Gary Megson's position who has been portrayed as something of a 'relegation specialist.' Some Wanderers fans were calling for Sam Allardyce at the end of the defeat at home to Everton. Is that a solution worth considering?

Opinion is divided on Megson. Some say he should be gunned down, others will be happy to see him merely run out of town. The vernacular of a cowboy movie isn`t an accident.

The backroom set up that Sam established has been dismantled. For that reason his returning isn`t a viable option.

4. Here come Manchester City again. Smell the fear or relax with a beer?

Relax with a beer, but only because we no longer care. It's called the Megson Effect. Scientists are studying the phenomena.

5. Who of Manchester City's relatively young squad would you love to see in a Bolton shirt and who would you like to send us in a part ex?

We`ll have Robinho please. Not that it would make a difference. Megson would have him warming the bench. You can have Megson in return. He used to play for City, so he`ll know the way. If you`re talking about playing staff then Kevin Nolan is yours for the asking. You may have to cover him in goose fat in order to squeeze him through the dressing room door. Fat swine.

6. YOU are the new Premier League Chief Executive. You have been granted three measures / ideas which will go unopposed by all 20 clubs to improve the top flight game in England. Choose them wisely...

a. Free pie and a pint for every match attendee

b. Gary Megson to be banned from ever managing a side again. This will be too late to help us, but may prevent others from experiencing our pain.

c. Ban managerial platitudes. Who didn`t want to throw up on hearing about David O`Leary`s 'honest set of lads` or Steve McClaren telling us his players worked 'ever so hard?` You won`t be surprised to hear that Megson`s got one. Apparently, our lot frequently 'put in a decent shift`. Pass the sick bucket.

7. Go on then. Sunday's result?

Bolton nil, City more than nil. Get your act in gear and it might be City a lot more than nil.

Many thanks and respect going out to Richard and Vital Bolton.

Yes indeed, alphie, another belter. To be brutally honest though, judging by the Trotters morale, we surely should win there.

I work in Bolton, and morale is definately low amongst their fans. We simply HAVE to win this one (or else a sicknote from OB will be handed in Monday morning!). Cracking interview though!

The negative feelings about Megson expressed here by a fan are even more powerful that the Spuds' depiction of Ramos as a "Spanish Eddie Munster" (Soz u av 2b >35). They have to get a new manager quick or there will be just more damage done to the club by him holding on to the salary. I really do hate this. We have to and will win there, but I feel for the Bolton fans. It just is not fair and their board should be sacked to a man.

I take it Bolton fans are well and truly peeved off with Megson and Co? Any reason why?

Speaking to Bowltun fans at work, he is technically inept. Long ball tactics to Davies / Elmander, but the team is packed with defensive midfielders, so there is no-one supporting the frontmen. Hopefully we can take advantage of their shambolic state, but we are in for a physical battle!!
