Someone (I can't remember who) summed it up well earlier:
When Allardyce left, the club was in crisis especially with the loss of the backroom staff and subsequent pillaging of players. It was clear that Allardyce's reign was by the end completely unsustainable, with the emphasis being on the 'now' rather than the future, a trend he took to Newcastle, Blackburn and now seemingly West Ham.
Lee was the wrong choice, but that was quickly rectified thankfully.
Megson came in and steadied the ship for a couple of years even if it wasn't pretty and he spent too much money in the process. He did however buy some good young players for the medium term. on Garty/Eddie's orders, I presume - M Davies, LCY, Cahill - but by the end it was clear that the ship was sinking.
Coyle has followed this trend of youth even more wholeheartedly by getting rid of the final remnants of the Allardyce era and doing a further rebuild whilst looking more towards the long-term. This season has very much been one of transition, this is apparent by the gradual phasing out of the aging players from the Allardyce/Megson era over the past few weeks without an adverse effect on our results.http://www.owlstalk.co.uk/forums/index. ... th-bolton/
View from his current supporters - needless to say they don't like us. Funnily enough though, I remember most of that board wanted Megson out after a 5-1 defeat earlier this season and he's one of 'theirs'.
Fans are a fickle bunch, and we're not alone in that. That said, there were only a few in the 'idiot crew' at the beginning so to tar us all with the same brush is utterly unreasonable. However, had they given him less abuse at the start, this interview would likely have never happened.
I just hope the Wednesdayites are having fun losing to Bury, that's all.
