Forthright Megson wears heart on his sleeve

Distraught: Megson at Bury

Have your say

GARY Megson’s forthright remarks after the Bury game were just an example of his honesty and passion.

He has always worn his heart on his sleeve, as a player and a manager, and is a realist who has seen it all before.

In referring to Alan Irvine’s exit and saying that pressure is now falling on him, the Wednesday boss was reflecting the level of Hillsborough expectations and the fact that patience in football can be in short supply.

In saying that if he had signed bad players it was his fault and he would go, it was another searing bit of frankness from a man who cares deeply about the club.

But he was spot on to add that he does not think he HAS signed bad players and the opportunity is still there for the team to get back on track.

Only three League games have been played. He and the Owls deserve a lot more time than that before profound judgement is passed.
