What a shambolic, mis-managed performance from Bolton. Wait, I don't mean mis-managed. That would indicate that there was some sort of management involved. That was anti-management.
And it's apt because across from Megson, former Wanderers assistant Phil Brown showed just how a decent manager can win a game for his team. Bolton were bossing the game, but Brown adapted his side and made one telling substitution, after which Bolton disintegrated. Simple.
Here is what Gary Megson said after the game, as reported by Soccernet:
"I thought we were terrific, but we didn't score and if you don't score you don't get the results you're after.
"Whilst the game was going as it was you are always susceptible to one lapse, which is what happened.
"We bossed it from that point onwards but in trying to get the equaliser we took some risks and Hull probably had a couple of opportunities they could have scored from.
"They wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the goal. That just shows the importance of the first goal.
"To be honest we should have been out of sight after thirty minutes."
Some of Megson's conclusions after the match are either naive or evidence that he's in denial. After an early spell of dominance, Hull made some positive changes in an effort to win the game.
From Jozy Altidore's (very impressive) introduction, Bolton dissolved. They repeatedly gave the ball away in compromising positions and failed to create any solid chances until the dying moments. Realistically, Hull could, and possibly should, have won by two or three.
And it wasn't as if this was Liverpool at home, (Bolton's next fixture by the way). This was Hull, who were just turned over by Spurs at home. Hull have been as good defensively as Bolton have been dangerous. Lots of away teams will have lots of chances at the KC this season.
I would argue that there is nothing positive to take from this performance and little encouragement to gleam from Megson's post-match comments, but that's only one way of looking at the situation and Gary's lack of anxiety.
Either a) Gary Megson is tactically outgunned every week and has no clue how to arrest Bolton's hopelessness, or b) Gary Megson is not alarmed because he is a football genius, thinking about the game at a level never previously imagined in English football and he can see things in Bolton's crummy early-season performances that will eventually lead to positive results.
I know it's still early and I know that if I have to continue the season like this I'll have had a stroke by Christmas, which makes Megson's attitude even more infuriating. More importantly, there is still more than a week of transfer window left. If this team doesn't find some goals and start to repay some of Gary Megson's confidence, this is going to be a long season.
