Two men in history have managed both Norwich City and Bolton Wanderers. Bruce Rioch became manager of the third tier Trotters in May 1992 and led them to a runners up spot in Division Two the following season. A thrilling FA Cup run followed, then promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs and a place in the 1995 League Cup Final. Rioch's stock rose to such a level that he never managed the club in the top flight and took over the reigns at Arsenal instead. His winning ratio of over 48% from 172 games leaves him as arguably the most successful manager in Bolton Wanderers history. He lasted at Arsenal just one season, leaving after a dispute regarding transfer funds - a subject that raised it's head once more during Rioch's short career at Carrow Road between July 1998 and March 2000. In contrast, Gary Megson's ninety eight matches in charge at Bolton between 2007 and 2009 were largely taken up with battles against relegation from the Premier League, with just 27 wins being achieved during that period. Megson had begun his managerial career with the Canaries in December 1995, but only recorded five wins from his twenty seven matches at the helm.
