Of course, Mike Cheston was on holiday when Coyle was appointed.

More so in the case of Mike Cheston who was probably making his first appearance since the dismissal of the outstanding candidate Owen Coyle. Sounds he is more of a facts and figures man and not suited to picking the right man for a job.
It was mentioned that Cheston wasn't the one who made the final decision on appointing Coyle. Some candidates made demands the club couldn't meet, some weren't interested in joining after being interviewed. It seems many fans think there's never any obstacles to appointing a manager, they can pick whoever they want. But it's plausible that Coyle did look the best option out of those who wanted the job at the time, as sobering a thought as that may be.

In the interests of balance - lifted from BRFCS.
Much has been made over the past year of the extreme differences in fortunes between clubs in the Football League. With that in mind, we - Daily Mail journalists Tom Farmery and Sam Morshead - have set out to gain a comprehensive view of fans’ feelings at the way their club, other clubs and the EFL in general is being run.
We hope that you can spend two minutes of your time completing your respective club’s survey - survey below, enabling us to get data which we can then put to key figures in the EFL and government about the state of the game in this country.
If you have further thoughts and opinions on any of the topics mentioned, please also feel free to email sam.morshead@mailonline.co.uk or tom.farmery@mailonline.co.uk
Thank you for your time

Notes to Trust board members… if anyone is willing and able to speak to us on the subject of their own club, ownership in general or the EFL’s role as a guardian, please get in touch via sam.morshead@mailonline.co.uk
When circulating among your membership, we would appreciate it if you only passed on the relevant link to your team, to avoid any cross-contamination or trolling that may occur.

As if by magic the BBC already covered the same thing...

Good quote from the EFL...

"We also have to be careful that we don't categorise people as good owners or bad owners because fans' views move, usually because of success on the pitch"

Dear All,

Could you please provide me with any items that you would like to be included on the Agenda for the next Supporter Consultation meeting being held on Thursday, 21st June by the close of business (5.00 pm) on Friday, 15th June. If you would like to attend the meeting, please let me know as soon as possible and I will add you name onto the list.

The Meeting will take place in the Red Rose Suite with a Panel attending from the club to consist of a selection of the Board and/or Owner representatives alongside the Team Manager and members of the management team.

The club may invite up to 10 additional guests to the meeting who do not necessarily belong to any of the supporter groups but who the club feel may have a valuable contribution to make. This could include members of the local council/government, business persons or supporters and will be on a discretionary basis.

Thanks

Rob

I think he is waiting for Alan Irvine to give him the nod

All match tickets should be £1 so that I can get the train to a match for an even thousand

Currently the cheapest season ticket is £319 with £90 for juniors and £60 for children. While this offers good value attendances could be better. Could something be done to attract more families on match days. An example of which is could both parents with two children not be offered a family season ticket say starting from £500. Rovers could be missing out revenue simply because Dad cannot justify spending £319 on s season ticket while mum has to stay home with the kids. There are plenty of empty seats around on match days so its not like there is not room to accomodate.
