Bolton must be the ideal club to go to for any manager.

Don't fancy playing a fixture? Hey, just don't bother....players too young, too old, too skint, too rich....all excuses are good uns.

Of course the biggest bonus is that they need not worry about being properly sanctioned by the total incompetents running the League.

None in particular
Only on this forum could there be genuine bafflement that anyone would quit Barrow for Bolton Wanderers - c'mon fellas! ;)

Barrow ain't going any higher and Bolton ain't going any lower. No comparison between the two in terms of infrastructure. New owners, clean slate, chance to build something, one maybe two promotions a realistic target. An appealing challenge surely, no doubt a decent pay rise too.

Bit of a punt by Wanderers though. Mind you, I said something similar when Lincoln appointed Cowley..
When you put it like that Paul, it actually makes decent logic. However I always feel the next crisis at Bolton is just around the corner. Again, that can be weighed off against what I would imagine is a decent pay rise.

Bolton's current ownership passed the EFL fit and proper test so what could possibly go wrong? ;) Even if Bassini was reportedly interested in the club again recently..

Fascinating move for a hugely popular manager but quite a let down for the owners, who backed Micky through some tough times and could've done with a bit of loyalty in return after the recent turmoil. He's been brilliant for us but we've been brilliant for him too - a real collective effort.

He's earned his step up though. And it will test him. Give me £1 and I'll stick 80p on him challenging for top 6 next season, but 20p on him not lasting the season!

And if John McGreal leaves Colchester in the coming days I'd put another £1 on him being Mellon's successor.

La Liga side Real Betis have appointed former West Ham and Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini as their manager for next season.

Pellegrini, who has also managed Real Madrid, Villareal and Malaga in the Spanish top flight, was sacked by the Hammers in December.

The 66-year-old Chilean's deal with Betis runs until June 2023.

Pellegrini won the 2013-14 Premier League title and two EFL Cups during his three years at Manchester City.

We were all wrong chaps - Mike Jackson, Mellon's number 2 at Tranmere, is the new man in charge at Prenton Park.

Danny Cowley sacked by Huddersfield. Doubt he'll be out of a job long if he lowers his sights a little.

They should have stayed at Lincoln! Expect the brothers to return to Essex with vacancies at both Colchester and Southemd.

And some reports say he will be in charge for the final couple of games. He took on a similar role at Leicester when Pearson was sacked last time. A crazy decision whatever happens as he leaves them in a better state than they were in when he was appointed but some strange things go on with Pearson at times.

There is also a vacancy at Watford and possibly a vacancy at Hull coming up
