Ryan doble must be sat on the bench thinking " what have i got to do to get a game here " 2 new strikers needed if doble isnt getting a chance and a couple of midfielders to help summers. Summers is buzzing around trying to create but not coming off

So Coyle goes and straight away the media start banging on about McCarthy and some other 'old' managers to come in and take over.
I thought we'd seen the start of the end of this nonsense?
The new breed of younger managers (albeit in their late 30s and early 40s) seem to herald a new way of managing. Gone are the 'same old, same old' faces like Redknapp and McCarthy, O'Leary and a host of other managers who seen more sacks than a flour mill. That's what I thought - then again, didn't people say Coyle was a 'brilliant' manager and a candidate for Liverpool or Arsenal?
Football is plagued with these old hangers-on who still think they can do a good job - chairman and owners I'm talking about! But these older managers who've been through a few clubs still get jobs!
Good to see Liverpool giving a younger man a chance and same with Swansea and Spurs. Maybe Bolton need to do the same and not fall back on the old has-been who will never be again?

Coyle was a good manager, but sometimes the players need to look at themselves. look at Di Canio he is wild, but doing a great job, the players must have respect and passion or he drops them.... Big Mick would be a massive backwards step for Bolton IMO.

Agree1 Disagree1

Mick Mccarthy would be a disaster just ask wolves fans , might get us up but we'll have to sack him as soon after.
he is a dinasaur manager and he will want that Connor as his no2, wolves have done great since they sacked him

Agree0 Disagree1

Yes Wolves did really well when they sacked Mick.....they got relegated, quality post that.
