You`re Not Gary Megson. You`re An Imposter!

You`re Not Gary Megson.  You`re An Imposter!

Fears have been expressed about the safety of Gary Megson, after a bizarre statement from the Bolton manager. His words are so out of character that some observers suspect that he has been kidnapped and replaced with a ringer.

'In playing with the two upfront for an hour last Saturday we created a lot more and the ball stayed in the opposition's half for a lot longer. There was a lot more movement, a lot more crosses and a lot of good things about it,` he said, referring to last week`s game against Arsenal.

This would appear to indicate the adoption of a…cue dramatic music…wait for it…4-4-2 formation. Clearly, this isn`t the statement of a man who stuffs the midfield with players who get a nose bleed if they cross the half way line and who celebrated the increased number of substitutes this season, because it meant he could put two more defensive midfielders on the bench.

Then again, such sentiments are nothing new to Bolton fans. After a 2-0 victory at Manchester City in December 2006 with changed tactics forced on him by the suspension of Kevin Davies, former boss Sam Allardyce suggested that a change might be in order. After which he reverted to 4-5-1.

Poor Kevin Davies week in week out he spends more time with the opposition than he doe's with his own team mates. It will be really nice for him to have someone within 20 yards when he challenges for the ball. Give him his dues he never stops ploughinh that lonely furrow.
