Answer then why we sacked Lee and Megson then?
Might as well have accepted the 'inevitable' then and saved a lot of money in the process.
You may as well talk to a brick wall. There are some Bolton fans who are more than happy to see Coyle take us down, that's been evident since the beginning of the season, they're hardly likely to see sense now are they? The legend of Coyle lives on it seems.
FWIW I didn't expect much today and don't blame Coyle for the loss. I just won't accept the shifting of blame from Coyle to Megson.
And I'll bet my mortgage that if our current manager hadn't played for us, and wasn't quite such a big self promoter that all those bleating how 'it's not Coyles fault' would be screaming for him to be sacked like they were with our previous two bosses.
Cos he used to play for us and is a nice bloke is not a reason to let him get away with incompetence and destruction of the last 11 years hard work.
As much as I can't stand him, I know we'd not be in this position were Allardyce managing us with the same players. We'd be playing god awful football, but we'd be scrapping our way to points. And when you aren't flush with money, and not one of the big boys in the league, that is what you must do. Megson for all his faults knew it. He might have fallen out with half the playing staff and cut his nose of to spite his face, but he knew you had to scrap as Bolton.
Lee didnt know it and Coyle doesn't seem to either.
I give Coyle credit for raising confidence when he came here and putting smiles back on players faces, that were lost under the previous manager. He did that gave some confidence and that was enough. But it's not always going to be enough, sometimes you have to accept you're in a right scrap and show some street savvy. Thats what we are really lacking.
Even just 4 extra points would give us a good chance from where we are. We've thrown away a lot more than that already chasing football ideals, when we should be trying to be that nasty side that is well organised and scores from set pieces......
