If anyone wants to while away twenty minuets or so the following might keep you amused about Owen Coyle as a manager -
The following post was made on a Ross County fan forum calling for Coyle's head after about just 10 weeks or so after he was appointed. Nearly everyone jumped on the poster as being a wum - nearly 6 weeks later (and many more games lost!) - many are changing their minds, and talk behind the scenes are that the clubs owner very much regrets appointing Coyle now!
Anyway this is the first post in the thread 'Coyle Out' -
I'm a regular reader of the forum, however, I felt the need to sign up to air my views on the situation at the moment.
Owen Coyle has had several months to implement his ideas to the team, and, if anything, we've got worse. The same old crazy decisions we saw under Jim being repeated but in even bigger fashion. Chopping and changing the goalie, the defence a mess, no organisation in midfield and a completely useless way of using what is a talented set of strikers. If it's Billy Mckay up front, we play the long ball. If it's Thomas Mickelson, we play it to feet. Even I can tell you this is wrong.
I'm all for giving managers time but the regression since Coyle came in is alarming and if he doesn't go then we'll be heading down to join our long lost neighbours. People saying wait to January are wrong. He's ruined clubs like Blackburn and Bolton with terrible signings and he will do the same to us if we're not careful. We all know we have a talented group of players that don't need releasing. The only thing we need releasing is our manager.
