Bolton face Manchester City at the Reebok on Sunday with the words 'Megson` and 'end` being uttered in an increasing number of sentences. Other words have been used in conjunction with Bolton`s hapless manager, but this being a family site prevents them being repeated.
This will be the second run out for the Fan Zone, an experimental area in the Premier Suite, where the home support can be fed and watered before the game. Last time, free beer was given to the first thousand punters. It is rumoured that Prozac will be doled out this time. More on this as the news develops.
A few nuggets from the Ginger One.
'I don't know where it comes, from but as I say it doesn't bother me, it's water off a duck's back.`
'We have a fantastic tendency at Bolton to make a mountain out of every molehill`
Megson shows his golden touch when responding to adverse supporter reaction. The talk is of ducks and moles. How about the donkey in charge?
'I'm viewed entirely differently throughout the country to what I am here.`
This is true. Sort of. Wanderers fans are in despair. Supporters of other clubs think the situation is hilarious.
Gavin McCann is available after suspension. Ricardo Vaz Te and Joey O'Brien are doubtful with knee injuries.
The Finnish stopper might be a bit busy.
Pablo Zabaleta is expected to return from suspension. Jo may be fit after suffering from tonsillitis. Daniel Sturridge is likely to miss out with an ankle injury.
The Brazilian will be more than a threat to Bolton's moribund midfield. Maybe he'll go on a bender the night before. You can only hope.
It's forty wins each, in league games between the two sides.
Mike Riley. As if things weren't bad enough. Usually sends off a Bolton player or two. Who do you boo first. Riley or Megson? Decisions, decisions.
Home banker. Yeah, right.
Hull City (A)
Bolton fans are working on the banners now. They read 'Come Home Phil Brown.'
