Megson goes at Bolton

It's hardly a surprise given the relationship between the manager and player. It was so evident at Burnley last week with the chants of 'Megson Out' and the booing of the substitutions and apparently things got even worse last night when he substituted Ivan Klasnic.

He's been in the job for two years and two months since he replaced the difficult to understand Sammy Lee but has never had the fans on side from day one.

Amongst the early favourites to replace him are Mark Hughes and Peter Reid whilst there was always going to be a link with Owen Coyle. I wouldn't have thought there would be any likelihood of Coyle making the move back to Bolton.

Megson's departure, following that of Alan Irvine yesterday from Preston, means Coyle now stands 25th in the list of longest serving managers.
