Owen Coyle is going to have to turn around not only his own flagging career, but the mindset of an exhausted and insulted group of fans AND the fortunes of a club in the financial mire. If he manages it, then he could well have a religion named after him.
Can he do it? On the evidence of his last three jobs he has lost the touch he once had at Burnley. Crap at Wigan, Not good at Houston in the MLS and sacked from his dream job at Bolton. When he got Burnley promoted I thought he was a decent bloke who understood how football should be played, but he torched all of that when he took the Bolton job.
I'm not excited by this appointment, I'm underwhelmed by it.
I'm not offended by this appointment, but we all long ago gave up on any notion that the Venky's knew what they were doing.
