Bolton fans don’t want Gary Megson poking his receding ginger hairline around the Reebok Stadium, shouting with his gum chewing cavernously huge mouth, and generally being the annoyingly bad manager that everyone knows him to be. The Times reports that last night relegation specialist Mr Megson was greeting by empty seats and a barrage of boos when he was introduced to the Bolton faithful.
Only 10,848 Bolton fans turned up and The Times claims that Megson and Gartside were serenaded with such choice lyrics as â€œSack the boardâ€ and â€œYou donâ€™t know what youâ€™re doingâ€. The players, obviously only marginally more inspired than the disgruntled fans, managed a damp squib of a result, a 1-1 draw with Braga – and we thought Martin Jol had it rough before he got sacked, Megson’s tenure at Bolton is only hours long and he is already being booed.
Although that’s the least of Bolton’s problems right now.
