Bolton Wanderers Chairman Phil Gartside has fired yet another broadside at Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce.
Dublin born Gartside is angry at Allardyce for Sam supposedly going back on their agreement not to take any of the Reebok back-room staff.
Phil is insisting those employees now serve out 12 months’ notice at Bolton.Â Let’s see what’s going on here.
Allardyce and Gartside
Sammy Lee is supposedly putting together a new back-room staff at Bolton and recruiting a bunch of new people. Chairman Gartside claims they will make Wanderers more professional than they were under Sam Allardyce.
Gartside told the Bolton News yesterday:
“I’m trying to get people who wanted contracts with 12 months’ notice to work their notice,”
“If that makes me sad and bitter, then so be it. But people have gone and there was an agreement that he shouldn’t take them with him.
“Far from making things difficult, we’re finding it quite easy to replace them with better quality people.
They will make us a much more professional outfit.”
That bit about replacing them with better quality people seems as bit childish. A word in the ear of Bolton’s Chairman – you’re starting to look childish and even a touch immature. We’d advise you to give it up â€“ and the same goes for Sam.
Gartside should be putting his energy into making Bolton a better team â€“ just like Sam Allardyce is putting his efforts into making Newcastle a better team. It’s obvious that Allardyce’s resignation at Bolton was hard to take for the Bolton club – but life goes on – and we think it’s definitely time for Phil Gartside to move on – and put an end to this back-biting with Sam Allardyce.
