Milan: No truth in Megson quit rumours

Milan: No truth in Megson quit rumours

Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric has told BBC Radio Sheffield that there's no truth to rumours saying Gary Megson has left the Owls.

Rumours on Twitter and message forums were this morning saying Megson may have left Hillsborough after a disappointing run of results.

But those rumours have been quickly quashed by the Owls chairman.

The Owls are enduring their worst run of form of the season so far with four straight defeats in all competitions, the latest a 1-0 loss at lowly Chesterfield on Saturday.

But Megson is expected to be in charge for this Sunday's big Steel City derby clash against Sheffield United at S6.

Im guessing if we dont win sunday Mr Megson will be out of a job.

This loss of form is dramatic - it would take a more dramatic improvement to stay in the play-off places - even more so to win the Final. Can't totally believe it won't happen, could do, but we have had a basic problem through the season: we don't score enough goals. All teams leak them as we do, but they score them also. Just a few more Wednesday goals here and there could have made an amazing difference to our position, but we didn't score them.

Here Here Vic I have missed all the doom a gloomers some who went into hibernation for the past 3 months. Its nice to see you all crawling out of the woodwork again. Things are not going well over the last half a dozen games or so, but lets look at where we are at the moment. (1) automatic is going to be tough now thats a fact. (2) we are in a great position to protect what we've got and anything else is a real bonus with the pigs & Charlton in a position to throuw it all away. Lets face it the pigs have a great history of such a thing. (3) At the moment if we played the play offs now we would struggle to beat any of the other 3 teams over two matches. Ladies & Gents we are still "in it to win it" one or if not two of the current play off teams will dip over the last 10 games or so Come on Cheer Up were still in business If the nerves can handle it a play off final day at Wembley walking away as winners is what we would all take now and its a real posability

To get rid of Meggo at this point in the season would just be a bit stupid. Don't get me wrong, I'm just as frustrated as everyone else but we need to stay positive. Hopefully we will turn things around, starting against the blunts on Sunday. If, no wait, WHEN we win on Sunday it will give the players a huge boost and get them full of confidence again. That's what we're lacking along with goals of course. Come on lads, repay the faithful that follow you through thick and thin, you can do it. WTID UTO.

Getting rid of Megson would be nuts. He has brought in some good players, permanently and on-loan, and most of them have played well until the last 4 bad results. Is that really his fault or their fault? He should at the very least get the chance to turn things around, if you can call it that, and we're third from top, not third from bottom. Everything could be very different in just two games from now so we shouldn't even be talking about if Megson is safe in my opinion. There is a problem and it needs to be sorted but sacking shouldn't even be a discussion in my opinion.

Perspective please. We would have taken 3rd at this point in the season at the start. Whats all this talk of quiting, sacking - Ridiculous! Forget it, move on, remain positive. Promotion is priority by whatever means. Starting by re-finding the form by battering the our pauper neighbours from that subbutio somewhere in the slums of Sheffield ha ha!
20/02/2012 19:40:00
Megsons aim is promotion, anything less is a failure. Let's get this season and take stock.
20/02/2012 20:28:00
See this is where things go wrong. When managers hit a slump they often don't change the team up enough. They look short of ideas because they haven't changed things up. I think that this season we have looked stronger in some areas than we have for years and Meggo deserves credit. We are much better in the air and a real threat from set pieces, we are better in the middle of the park with some teeth in Semedo and if we can find him a partner good enough partner (I'm looking to Palmer and Bostock here, both have the talent and need just a little faith from the manager) we could look really good. I think Buxton and RJ have turned into excellent full backs and are always certain starters IMO. They have been great finds over the past couple of seasons. We now have four strikers that with the right style of play will get goals but at the moment the rest of the team isn't performing well enough and confidence is low. So I say start from almost scratch, bring in your most talented youngsters and proven players this season. On comes Llera for Jones, Palmer into the middle or Bostock, what about this new signing Jones he looked sharp against Exeter and maybe just maybe give O'Grady and Rob (I know it's really Ryan but I love Wayne's World) and lets get a result on Sunday! Looking forward to seeing the Ginger man's pubes as he runs on naked after Reda Johnson scores the 5th in a 5-1 thrashing of the piggies. Then we will see who is sacked...

Feel sorry from Gary, don't think he's had the full backing of the players or the chairman at times this season. I think a collection poor finishing and defending in a number of games this season have resulted in people starting to get on his back. I know the chairman has done wonders for this club, but when the supporters and Gary needed him most, he seem to have gone very quiet on the spending front, and i do remember him saying he would back the manager through the season to get us promoted. I hope he can turn it round starting this weekend with a few additions to the squad which is needed, then finish the season in style, because the job Gary's done for us is 80% complete, just need the players to step up to the mark, and Milan to remember where he left his wallet and jobs a goodun, after all i think most supporters would have taken where we are at the moment, but because the pigs are above us, its all doom and gloom, come on get behind Gary and the boy's for the rest of the season i'm sure they'll do us proud.
