G'Owen, G'Owen..Gone!

G'Owen, G'Owen..Gone!

The Official Club website have confirmed that Owen Coyle wishes to join Bolton Wanderers.

The full statement reads:

"Owen Coyle has today reaffirmed his desire to leave Burnley Football Club and join Bolton Wanderers Football Club.Burnley Football Club will now enter discussions with Bolton Wanderers Football Club, due to the fact that compensation between the two parties has yet to be agreed.There will be no further comment at this time"

Time to move on for all Clarets fans. We have all had our chance to state our thoughts on the assumption this was going to happen so no point in repeating them.

Cue lots of people venting their spleens and saying, "I told you so." A bad day for the club: we all need to move on asap. Bolton away is now going to be a very unpleasant experience, I fear. I think I will take some time off from typing on messageboards for a bit, as I don't want to get involved in arguments. Let's hope we get an even better manager next who keeps us up...and fast!

Stuck indoors on the penultimate day of my Christmas break waiting for a delivery and this happens. The only bonus is that I can watch Sky Sports News and that rather attractive young lady presenter who, at least, has delivered the sad news nicely. Thoughts turn to the future now and looking at the weather at TM Saturday's game must be in doubt - does that give the club a few extra days to get a decent replacement in ?

Great start to 2010, thanks Owen! You are right about the Bolton game,just got tickets for that one, not sure I am going to be able to stomach seeing Coyle in a Bolton track suit

stupid move, really silly of him, should have seen a full season in the league with you guys. Bolton is a major headache for any manager after the over achieving that Big Sam did, can't understand this move, especially as they are set up for a long ball physical game which is a game Owen doesn't seem to like or play? Bad luck guys, hope you get a suitable replacement.

He really has left us in it, the biggest problem is he has gone in January in the middle of the window. Were not going to be abe to sign any players now as they won't come until we have a manager. It really has left us S*** Creek! I am gutted, gutted. If he'd gone to a bigger club I wouldn't have been upset but Bolton. Here's hoping they go down.

Sad to hear this. The least Owen Coyle owed Burnley was the rest of this season. Hope you can now move on, get the right man in to keep you up. Hope also that our mighty Gunners stick the boot into Bolton tomorrow (if it goes ahead that is!) Shocking treatment and disgraceful timing. Good luck Clarets!

Not sure there are many on here who will say I told you so, many on here seemed to fear this news, me for one. Bloody hell I loved that man for what he did for BFC, for me it is a sad day simply because I remember what I thought when the Celtic job came up, good luck to him if he decides to better himself and go to his boyhood heros. The Bolton job just leaves my heart wanting him and Bolton to be relegated and below us. Its just what my heart is telling me at the moment without listening to ALL sides of this story.

Thanks for your kind thoughts TF. And I wish you a happy new year, and the Villa when they eventually get to play B*******n. Meanwhile, this not a happy moment. But as I have already posted, we have lots of leaders in the club, who will all now be focussed on proving that we are capable of staying in the PL. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

Gents, got to say I'd much rather see Burnley than Bolton in the premier league. Gutted for you, why would he want to go to that bunch of hoofing cloggers? Can't work it out. Let's hope they plumet to the championship.

I feel totally gutted about this but I'm determined to stay positive about our fantastic football club. OC did us proud during his term of office but now he's gone & I'm determined to get over it (believe me I could vent my spleen with the best of 'em). Next challenge Stoke. C'MON BURNLEY! C'MON BURNLEY! C'MON BURNLEY!
