West Ham fired manager Alan Pardew on Monday, two days after a 4-0 loss at Bolton left the Hammers in the relegation zone. The club, now owned by Icelandic businessman Eggert Magnusson, said it decided "to make a change in the best interests of the club" with West Ham 18th in the 20-club Premier League. Pardew is the second Premier League manager fired so far this season. Charlton's Iain Dowie was dismissed on November 13. Pardew had been in charge since October 2003 and guided the Hammers to promotion two seasons ago. But the club has lost 11 of its 17 Premier League games and was also knocked out of the UEFA Cup and League Cup. West Ham said first-team coach Kevin Keen will take temporary charge until a new appointment is made. His first game in charge will be at home to Premier League leader Manchester United on Sunday.
