Burnley fan - in peace.
Just wondering what the fans thought of Coyle now his Honeymoon is well and truly over.
Watched him at Burnley and although i was obviously impressed with his ability to get 110% out of his players, create enthusiasm, get them to play 60 games a season, etc - i was always concerned with his tactics, ability to read a game, ability to change a game, etc.
He is MR MOTIVATOR but after a season or two of "YOUR THE BEST" - "WE CAN BEAT THESE GUYS", etc, etc I was always concerned that he had nothing else in his locker, we were just seeing that at Burnley when he left us for you guys.
No hard feelings - but what i would like to know now is what you guys think of his ability to:-
Spot talent, pick a team, change a game (subs / formation changes, etc). You know real management stuff - cos as i say i was beginning to have my doubts, i truly don't think he's that good any at of the stuff that you need to be a truly GOOD manager.
What's your opinions??
Its evident that he has weaknesses in all these areas. Whether he will learn...who knows...
He does seem to be all about the positivity which as you say, wears thin after a while. There have been warning signs especially last season, and I guess we all hoped that they wouldn't prove to be indicative, but they have been.
Sadly I think he's been found out rather quickly.
