Sammy Lee fully justified as bookies favourite for the sack...

So then as I predicted on here a week ago Bolton do indeed look to be serious relegation candidates as do Derby County. The latter have been tipped heavily for a return to the Championship, so it comes as no surpise that even at this early stage of the new campaign they are one place off the bottom spot which is filled by Bolton Wanderers.

It also comes as little surprise that Sammy Lee is the bookies favourite for the first top flight manager to be sacked this season. It was always going to be a hard act to follow with big Sam Allardyce leaving the club after such a successful spell. However, personally I think the loss of Ben Haim has been a big factor in Bolton's poor start. To make matters much worse, there's talk that Anelka could be about to join Pompey who thumped the Trotters 3-1 on Saturday. No doubt punters will continue to lump on Bolton to be relegated and Lee to be sacked.

Both Bolton and Derby have conceded five goals from three games, as have Sunderland, who are another club that I full expect to struggle. Losing three to nil to Wigan does not augur well for the Black Cats and Roy Keane.
