It is now official that Owen Coyle has had talks with Bolton concerning the managerial position at the Reebok following the sacking of Gary Megson last week
The Club statement on the Official Website earlier in the evening read:
'Burnley Football Club can now confirm that manager Owen Coyle has held discussions with Bolton Wanderers FC over the vacant manager's position at the Reebok Stadium. Burnley Football Club chairman Barry Kilby will now meet with Coyle to discuss his future at Turf Moor. This will take place following Coyle's return from Scotland tonight (Monday).Burnley Football Club will not make any further comment at this time'
Clarets fans thought that would be the end of any announcements for the day but the Official Website then made this announcement at about 10pm after about two and a half hours discussion between the two parties:
"Senior Burnley Football Club officials have, on Monday evening, held detailed talks with first team manager Owen Coyle over his future at Turf Moor.
"As a result of these talks over Coyle's future with his current employers, both parties have decided to take a further 24 hours to digest the information shared before making any further announcement.
"There will be no further comment during this time from Burnley Football Club or Owen Coyle."
Most Clarets fans judge this to mean that there might be a glimmer of hope that Coyle could be staying at Burnley.
Some sources in the media are also suggesting that Coyle's move to Bolton could be on the verge of falling through.
Wanderers chairman Phil Gartside, it is understood had hoped to announce Coyle as manager on Tuesday afternoon so that timing now certainly seems to be scuppered.
Sky Sports also hint that this delay could mean there may have been further developments following Coyle's discussion with Burnley's senior officials.
They state it was widely anticipated that Coyle would confirm his move to Bolton after talks with Barry Kilby,
Come on Owen do right by Burnley FC and restore all the faith and respect we have had for you. Surely another three months with the club to try and keep us in the Premier League will be a fitting tribute if you succeed before wishing to move on. I implore you Owen not to leave us in such a mess at such a critical time. You once took your players outside to see the fans queuing for tickets to demonstrate what this club means to us. Please remember that moment before you make your decision.
I want to contunue saying 'Owen Coyle is God' please don't make me have to change the 'G' in God to 'S'!
