Sam Allardyce, the brilliantest Bolton Wanderers manager in recent history, is set for a shock return to the Reebok Stadium, after supporters besieged the club's website calling for the immediate sacking of ginger-haired failure, Gary Megson.
Megson, 62, has failed to live up to the mid-table expectations of Trotters' fans, who are becoming increasingly disillusioned with their side's present run of poor form, and yearn for the return of their hero, Big Sam.
Things move quickly in football these days, and it's possibile that Allardyce might be back in charge before the Premier League game with Everton on Saturday.
Dudley-born Allardyce has been 'laying low' since he was sacked as Newcastle United boss last season, but is known to be keen to return to the Reebok, where he was idolised by Bolton fans, after several successful years at the helm.
Allardyce was revered for his ability to bring in players who had been shunned elsewhere, or who were thought of as 'past their best', and to motivate and transform them into high quality, hard-working footballers who were able to rejuvenate the Trotters, and to propel them into contention for European places.
Megson seems unable to do this, and it is only a matter of time before chairman Phil Gartside decides 'enough is enough' and dumps him.
Big Sam said today:
"It'll be great to be back at Bolton, after the' get rid o' that ginger-haired twonk!"
