    'Maverick' Maddison was a no-show
    Turning up at full-time for a match you were expected to be in the squad for is bad enough but, whenyou are staying in the hotel 50 yards from the stadium, it is even worse.

    That was the bizarre situation at Bolton for their last home match when Marcus Maddison was a no-show.

    The former Peterborough and Hull winger, 27, signed on deadline day from Charlton in February, was nowhere to be seen at the 1.30pm meet ahead of the League Two clash with Barrow.

    When he finally got there, he had some explaining to do, with sources claiming he had ‘slept in’.

    Maddison, described as a ‘maverick’ by Posh owner Darragh MacAnthony, was sent off on his Bolton debut but had the red card rescinded.

    Bolton boss Ian Evatt subsequently told the press the player had a ‘sickness bug’.

    I'm really glad we never signed him. With behaviour and attitude like that this might well be his last season as a professional footballer, and he's only 27

    The word was clearly out on this bloke as no-one really wanted to go anywhere near him....Charlton did and had a smack of desperation about it.

    He’s a clown. One of the best things the previous regime did was not bow to fan pressure to sign him.

    If it was up to our fans we would have spent 2.5 million on his buy out clause 6 months before he would be available on a free.

    Lucky escape

    I was never convinced about signing him for a wedge of cash because he'd been a league one player all his career and I didn't believe he was worth the money. I knew he was a bit of a tosser but loads of footballers are, it's only recently I've realised how bad his attitude really is.

    I've decided I am signing him on football manager, I've decided to sign a right bunch of cnuts, ie: Gibson, Dellabodgy Rodwell etc, see how long I can sustain these fcukwits. That's the next challenge.

    Knew you wouldn't be able to resist the charms of Gibbo.

    I need to start jotting down the names of all the fcukwits within the game, players and coaches, for the purpose of the project. Mind, could probably do it with just staff from Sunderland over the last decade or so.

    People were literally screaming at Donald and Methead to sign Maddison as well, more so over on RTG, agreed though, definitely dodged a bullet there.

    Got to say, I was quite keen for us to sign him. Glad we didn't now.

    Not sure on this one. Being here might have been the making of him, but clearly he's not interested anywhere else.

    Got pelters for saying we shouldn't sign him as he's nothing but trouble. I live in Peterborough, nobody had a good word to say about him. Being shown now like.

    What a fool, talent aplenty but seriously flawed character, N'Dong springs to mind, thankfully a bullet dodged, .

    I wonder why <laugh>....

    He literally spends all night playing on his Ps5, so he'll be in no fit state to train. His career sounds pretty much fecked now. He obviously feels his Ps5 is more important than his career.
