Wanderers fire Megson

Bolton Wanderers sacked manager Gary Megson this morning with his side languishing one spot from bottom in the Premier League.  The club’s website claimed “Gary Megson has been relieved of his duties as first team manager of Bolton Wanderers with immediate effect. The decision has been taken in the light of the position the club finds itself in the Premier League at the halfway point of the season.” Bolton drew 2-2 with struggling Hull yesterday, after leading 2-0 at the hour mark. Megson has been unpopular at the Reebok since being hired last season with the Bolton fans never taking to the manager, even after he guided them away from relegation and up to 13th. Assistant managers Chris Evans and Steve Wigley will take over in the interim, with every available coach in England being linked to the job by bookmakers this morning.
