The Sad Tale of Whining Willy

The Sad Tale of Whining Willy

There`s nothing more dismal than a failed footballer who blames others for his lack of prowess. So it is with Christian Wilhelmsson, who was in full on whinge mode this week as he reflected on his time at the Reebok.

'At Bolton we played a style of football that was too heavily based on physical strength, that was not right for me,' he said. 'Then when the new manager, Gary Megson, came in and got us using the long-ball game even more, I knew it was time for me to leave.'

Bolton fans were split over Wilhelmsson. Some agreed it was time for him to leave. Others thought that he should never have arrived in the first place. Never was a player less suited to the English game. The Swede was lightweight and couldn`t cross or go past players. Fatal flaws for a winger. Granted, he was handy for pace, but so is the Road Runner. It`s doubtful that Gary Megson will be approaching Warner Brothers about a transfer.

Wilhelmsson would do well to stop snivelling and be grateful that he was paid handsomely for his brief, inconsequential time at Bolton. After all, it isn`t the first time that he failed. Just ask AS Roma.

Preview: Charlton v Bolton

It has been a superb start to the season but Bolton face their toughest test so far tomorrow when they make their second trip to South London in the space of three weekends.

While four wins from four is not to be sniffed at, going by the league table it's a step up in opposotion awaiting the Whites as we take on Charlton.

The Addicks are in turmoil off the pitch while their owners try to do everything in their powers to alienate their fanbase, just like they did with the club in Be
