Owen's New Contract Un-Coyles!

Owen's New Contract Un-Coyles!

Owen Coyle has today signed an extended contract at Turf Moor that will take him up to the summer of 2013

The Clarets gaffer had been in talks over a two-year extension to his current deal, which expired in summer 2011.

Clarets fans will be greatly relieved at this piece of news and it follows on nicely from the recent announcement that Tony Mowbray is the new manager at Celtic after Coyle had been linked with his boyhood club soon after beating the Blades at Wembley.

Operational Director, Brendan Flood had this to say about the news:

"We are delighted to secure Owen's commitment to Burnley Football Club for a four year period until the end of 2012/13 season. Owen is a young manager with a great future, who will continue to revive the traditions of Burnley FC to develop young British talent and to play attractive football"

Owen Coyle had this to say about the new contract and the challenges ahead in the Premier League:

"Negotiations have been ongoing for probably the best part of six months. We had to ease off it a bit because of the schedule we had at the end of the season with the play-offs. It was always going to come to fruition though and we had agreed in principle a deal, so I am just delighted to have it sorted now and we can all move on.I think we have known from day one what the plan was and how we were going to take this club on. In terms of the Premier League we know it's going to be difficult in terms of the budget. But, this has been a collective effort and everybody has played their part, especially the fans. I think we are all very much singing from the same hymn sheet, we know how important it is to the town and we saw that with the celebrations at the end of the season. It's important now that we all keep doing everything in our power to make sure we remain in the Premier League."

So Owen Coyle has been true to his word and has stayed with the club much to the relief of the fans and now we can all finally relax and look forward to our first season in the top flight since 1976 still under the stewardship of God!

Who writes your headlines for you, tmp? Are they signed up to 2012? I always said Coyle was a good man. Thank you Owen.

Did we ever doubt him? Are you kidding? He was waiting for Celtic to approach him and now that the Celtic position has been filled, Coyle was free to extend his stay at Turfmoor. I'm sure Owen Coyle will do a good job at Burnley and hopefully he can gain some good experience. He may well be the man to follow Tony Mowbray in four or five years. Good luck Owen, but don't embarass yourself by claiming you weren't interested in the Celtic post. This is obviously why you were holding out until you knew one way or the other. Just be honest.

Great news and I think Mr Kilby could have it spot on - This could be our most important signing of the summer!

Great business this. Tony Mowbray will probably last till Xmas and you'll great compensation from the Hoops when they come back for Coyle. Just joking... It is a good move to get a long term contract sorted and you'll need Coyle focussed 100% on the Premiership. It'll be hard for you guys but you have shown in the Championship and recent Cup heroics that you can play some damn good football. It'll be tough -- but 40 points from 38 games is within your reach. I hope you make it. You've been out of the top tier for too long and Fat Sam's turkeys are ready for plucking in the derbies.
