Megson is Old Before His Time

Megson is Old Before His Time

After an encouraging November in which he was crowned Premier League Manager of the Month, things have returned to normal for Bolton boss Gary Megson with two dismal performances against Liverpool and Wigan.

But there`s worse. He has aged ten years in the last few weeks, at least according to Sky Sports.

'Megson fears Bolton may yet be dragged into a relegation dogfight, however, the 59-year-old is intent on remaining positive,` writes Elliot Ball on the TV station`s website.

Megson`s date of birth is given elsewhere as 2nd May 1959, which means he is still the right side of fifty. However, if Sky are right and the Ginger One has begun a period of accelerated ageing, it will be good news for those Bolton fans haven`t forgiven him for existing. It means that he`ll get to retirement age that bit more quickly.

Bolton Put to to Sword by Sharp's Blades

Bolton were shown up as Billy Sharp scored in either half to hand us defeat in Yorkshire.

Sharp scored his first, finding space betweem the centre backs and finishing with aplomb, before adding his second from the spot with 20 minutes to go

For large parts Bolton, who were without Gary Madine after he wasn't even named in the squad, were awful. The back three didn't work, while the long balls weren't being held up by Conor Wilkinson.

It was an awful performance. Mike Dean w
