'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Manager's Views on Fulham's Win

Naturally, after the game at the post match press conference, the two managers had a different view on things.

Roy Hodgson, pleased that Fulham had made their best start to a Premier League campaign in five years, mused about the quality of the football whilst Gary Megson found very few positive points to talk about,

We`ll start with Roy, here`s what he had to say,

'I'm pleased with the quality of football we produced for the first 80 minutes and the fact we dominated so totally during that time.'

'Then we dealt quite well with the threat Bolton always pose with their playing style. "

'After conceding that rather unfortunate goal, which was more of a slump than clear goal chance, we showed the character to stand up to them."

'We knew then we would take a battering with balls being fired into our penalty area and I'm pleased we proved we can deal with that."

'We created a lot of chances and their 'keeper had to make at least five top-class saves.'

Personally, I could have done without that nervy last passage, especially after appearing to have the upper hand for those eighty minutes Roy purred about.

So what about the beaten manager, Gary Megson?

Here`s what he had to say,

'It was a good goal by Bobby but our defending was poor as we should have made him stay wide.'

'Danny Shittu let him inside and we weren't quick enough to recover."

'It would have been harsh on Fulham if we had got a point but we got ourselves back into it with 10 minutes to go."

'The effort that we put in was superb. Kevin Davies played well, as did Ricardo Gardener. "

'Apart from that we had a lot of people who weren't at their best. We won't win many matches with the level we're at right now. "

'The difference was Andy Johnson and his running power.'

I can`t say I have much time for Bolton and their aerial bombardment but what I will say is that it looks like it`ll be a long hard season for Megson and his boys!
