Megson 4 Wednesday… before getting sacked

In October 2011, Sheffield Wednesday Manager Gary Megson kissed his Wednesday badge after the match against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. United went 2-0 up within the first 20 minutes before an 82nd and 86th goal for Wednesday earned them a point…

Days after beating Sheffield United in the next derby, Megson was sacked. Chairman Milan Mandaric said: “This was a very difficult decision but one that has been taken with the best interests of Sheffield Wednesday at heart. We have 13 games to go of what is a critical season for our club and this decision has been taken because I believe we have a better chance of achieving our key aim of promotion by making the change. I fully understand this may not be the most popular decision amongst our supporters but I ask them to trust me, as they have done so whole heartedly during the time I have been at the club. Whilst we won what was a huge game last Sunday, I have looked at results before that to reach the conclusion which I believe is the right one for now and the future of Sheffield Wednesday.”
