He's doing the majority of the job he was asked to do, ie rescue us from the financial train wreck of the last regime. Anyone who's good with figures will note that whilst Coyle is in profit on his dealings, the income from player sales does not match outlay from the likes of Elmander/Shittu/Taylor/Cahill etc. They represent a substantial, irrecoverable loss to the club. He (or appears to be) replacing these "assets" with more salebale versions. ANd reducing the wage and age of the squad. So far so good.
I have no idea why he didn't stick with the formations that worked in the early part of this year, and I've no idea why we win comfortably one week, then lose miserably for several weeks after. That has me as baffled and frustrated as the next man.
On balance, I don't know of any worthwhile replacement who is willing to work under the constraints of the first paragraph, yet has the demonstrable ability to remedy the second. Its still my belief that the board are, and will, stick with their man. Regardless of our polls.
If you think by far and away the maaaajor part of his job isn't keeping us up, you've gone mad. You might argue financial constraints have made it so tough nobody could do it, but his job is to keep us up.
Even so, if his job is to save us from financial ruin, you must know something I don't. Coz 19th and our accounts is not a good combination.
He's fecking shit.
