MOST COMMENTED

A day after the end of the English Premier League season, underachieving Manchester City fired Manager Stuart Pearce, while Wigan Athletic appointed assistant Chris Hutchings as its new manager after Paul Jewell resigned.

Manchester City finished in 14th place, having scored only 29 goals in 38 league matches, and 10 goals in 19 home games, the lowest total for a top-flight team since the English League began in 1888.

Jewell's resignation came less than 24 hours after the Latics avoided relegation with a 2-1 win at Sheffield United that sent the Blades instead to the Championship League. He said he wanted to take a six-month break from soccer management. Wigan chairman Dave Whelan rejected speculation that Jewell would take over as manager at Manchester City. Whelan had hired Jewell in 2001 when the Latics were languishing in the third level of English soccer. They won promotion to the EPL in 2005.

Glenn Roeder resigned as Newcastle manager just over a week ago, and the Magpies hired Sam Allardyce, who resigned as Bolton Wanderers manager last week. He had also been linked to the position that just opened up at Manchester City.

Former assistant Sammy Lee has taken over at Bolton following Allardyce's resignation.

The fate of Neil Warnock, manager of relegated Sheffield United, will be decided at the Blades' board meeting on Thursday.
