Nixon Spouts, Clarets Fans Shudder

Nixon Spouts, Clarets Fans Shudder

Owen Coyle's journalist mate Alan Nixon has dropped a bombshell in the Mirror suggesting Owen Coyle could leave Burnley for nothing.

In an article in the Mirror online late last night he claimed that Coyle's barrister has informed our disgraced former manager that he is within his rights to leave the club because Burnley have breached his contract.

Coyle's barrister is from the League Managers Association solicitors and the LMA claim that Coyle was effectively sacked by Burnley when they called a press conference to discuss his replacement while he was on 'gardening leave'

In another extraordinary piece of journalism he also breaks the news that Owen Coyle in his generosity wants the Clarets to get £1million compensation deal from Bolton as a final gesture of goodwill.

Goodwill? More like good riddance!

If there is any element of truth in these accusations then Burnley FC are going to have more egg on their face than the contents of a million Ostrich eggs.

When things go to lawyers, you hear both sides before a settlement, and a lot of stuff gets said as both sides toughen up their positions, trying to put the frighteners on the other one. I don't think we need think that Alan Nixon knows more than our lawyers. If the LMA have issued a statement, it will be on the basis of only partial information, so it is very different from being a judgemtn. Meantime, I agree with sheclaret about not wanting to see anenymore photos of Coyle.

I'm with sheclaret. Perhaps a picture of the Greek God Proteus might be appropriate. His great characteristic was being able to change shape so you never quite knew who he was ?

Was Proteus that shapeshifter in Star Trek, jj? Didn't he keep turning back into a little puddle at the bottom of a bucket?
