You bet Bolton Owen to go down!
Despite Bolton's Chairman insisting it would cost too much in compensation to sack Owen Coyle, the under pressure Bolton boss is now favourite with William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club as Bolton dropped to the bottom of the table. 'There surely comes a point at which a manager's pride kicks in even if he hasn't been sacked, and Coyle is clearly a proud man' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Coyle 13/8 joint favourite along with Steve Kean to be the next boss out, and offer 11/10 that he is still Wanderers' gaffer on the first day of next season. Bolton are 11/10 to go down.
