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

Looks like that friendship is off

Having famously been branded big mates, as well as boss and employee, it`s a little bit strange to see Big Sam and Phil Gartside starting handbag wars with each other. Following on from recent criticism from the Bolton chairman, Big Sam has levelled off with the following quotes:

Gartside reckoned I wouldn't have got the Bolton job if I was applying for it now and we would never have signed El-Hadji Diouf or Nicolas Anelka if it wasn't for Sammy Lee. He also claimed Sammy did more of the coaching than me and was basically the better man. I began to wonder whether I'd done anything at Bolton.

Did we dream Bolton came from nowhere to become a top Premier League team and qualify for Europe? Was it an illusion or something? Gartside just sounded sad and bitter. If I'd ever had any doubts about leaving Bolton, that justified to me that I was right to go.'
