Message Board Thread of the Week: Bolton fans react to Coyle sacking

Jonny Forumer

Greetings folks, Jonny Forumer signing in. Sometime you’ve just gotta laugh – I believe you British types call it “gallows humour” – and that’s exactly what the good folk over at online Bolton Wanderers joint The Wanderer were doing with the news that Owen Coyle has been relieved of his duties as manager of the struggling Trotters.

See, I love your British sense of humour – you guys crack me up, you know that? – so this gets my Message Board Thread of the Week. Jonny Forumer signing out. See you real soon, folks.

Dave Sutton’s Barnet…

I’m not THAT overjoyed. Although I’ll admit I did shout “Yes!” and punch the air with both fists.

Sorry it didn’t work out, Owen. I wish you no ill and will look back on your reign as something that didn’t work out. Onwards and upwards… via a proper interview process, please.

For the best part of a year, I have been waking up and instantly checking Google every morning to look for this news.

What will I do with my mornings from now on?!

bobo the clown…

They kept it for my birthday.

Woo-Hoo !!!

Sammy Lee and Jiminho take temporary charge.

Bugger. The good news was short lived. We’ve tried that dwarf before.


I’d give Sammy Lee the job for the rest of the season. Seriously.

That’s just the drink talking.


Not jubilant the way I was when Megson was sacked.

William the White…

Inevitable. Sad. Right.

Wandering Willy…

They’re not going to let Jimmy Phillips anywhere near the first team are they?
