'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Calm it down lads!

BURNLEY gaffer Owen Coyle last night urged his new boys Chris Eagles and Martin Paterson to stop trying to impress so much, as he felt they were trying too hard to put on a show.

Eagles who joined the Clarets in an undisclosed deal, which Todmorden News believes to be around the £1.6 Million mark, made his debut at Turf Moor in the final Pre-Season friendly of the campaign against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, a game in which he scored what proved to be the winner.

Paterson also a new signing in East Lancashire joined from relegated Scunthorpe United for a fee of £1.3 Million which is the official club record as the figures involved in the Eagles deal were not placed in the public domain.

Coyle said: 'Chris Eagles, as we know, is a talented footballer, there's no doubt about that.

'He can score a goal, create a goal and looks an exciting talent. I just think at one point he was trying too hard. I felt even Martin Paterson was.

'The fact they've been away and played eight games away from home then come back to Turf Moor means they're desperate to impress everybody.

'They don't have to be working too hard to do that because we know they're good players. That's why they're at the football club.'
