Bolton Wanderers manager Gary Megson says he is big enough to accept
the criticism that has come his way following a poor run of form.
The Trotters have won just once in the Premier League since the opening
day of the season, with Megson having been heckled by sections of his
own club's fans during the 2-0 weekend loss at Spurs.
However, an ebullient Megson said: "I don't want the fans to start
having a go at the players because a lot of them won't have had it
"But I'm used to it because I've had it from day one and if the fans
want to shout and abuse me that's fine, although it's not particularly
"What would be harder to deal with is if the supporters actually turned
on the players, but the only way to stop the negativity is by putting
in some better performances.
"But I'm not bothered. You get to a certain age and a certain level of
experience whereby it the abuse becomes water of a duck's back.
"I've heard it before, but I don't think I've had to the intensity before that I got on Sunday.
"I spoke to the guys at Tottenham and it was more of a shock to them than it was to me."
SHOULD HE GO?
