Gift Wrapped for City?

Bolton

Manchester City

Reebok Stadium

2nd November

On Sky

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.

Vital Quotes:

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.

Bolton Team News:

Gavin McCann is available after suspension. Ricardo Vaz Te and Joey O'Brien are doubtful with knee injuries.

Player to watch: Jussi Jaaskelainen

The Finnish stopper might be a bit busy.

Manchester City Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Robinho

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.

Match Facts & Stats

It's forty wins each, in league games between the two sides.

Ref Watch:

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.

Match Prediction:

Home banker. Yeah, right.

Next Fixtures:

Hull City (A)

Bolton fans are working on the banners now. They read 'Come Home Phil Brown.'

When its pizzing down with rain and blowing a gale we will see just how brilliant Robhinio and Co can be. They may look pretty going fwd but are shocking at the back, even Bor'o beat them.

The bullet is coming, cheerio megson! Although Knowing us we'll mess it up and get a ruddy win. Alien head referee Mike Reilly, is always a banker to send a Wanderers player off, but you know he'll give us everything in our favour against Citeh just to spite us.

Tiny T, look at megsons record at every club he as been at, then think about the question you have just asked. Eight years to build, twelve months to destroy. GET OUT OF BOLTON!!!!!
