Is Coyle basically a good manager tactically, or do we just want him gone because he managed Bolton & Burnley? Utilizing the existing talent- all that he has been given to use- is he a good enough football man to keep us up this season?
If not, I will be content to see him go at season's end, particularly, if "the right man" comes along.
In answer to your first question, I dont really care that he's managed Burnley, Bolton or Wigan, but his career best was at Burnley, getting them promoted, but since then he has about a 35% win percentage, with us its actually at 29%. Our problems tactically have been consistently the same all season. we cant defend. its obvious to all of us, and while we did look a bit surer with Hoban in the team, we just havent been able to sure up the defence.
i think he'll be gone at the end of the season regardless of where we end up. the fans have never been on his side and this season has been pretty torrid. As to if we can stay up with Owen Coyle as manager, a lot of this depends on if we beat Burton on friday. I still think slightly more than 50 points would be enough to keep us up. That's 7 wins and a couple of draws, Owen Coyle has to be looking at the game as one we can win.
