Club Announce Interim First Team Management

Club Announce Interim  First Team Management

Owen Coyle and the whole of his management team whilst at Burnley have now all left the club for Bolton.

In addition to Coyle, Sandy Stewart, Phil Hughes, John Henry and most surprising of all, Chief Coach, Steve Davis are no longer at Turf Moor.

The club have now made a statement on the Offical Burnley website announcing who will be in charge of the first team whilst the new managerial vacancy is filled.

The statement reads:

'Director of Youth Development Martin Dobson and Youth Team Coach Terry Pashley have been placed in charge of first team duties at Turf Moor until further notice.Dobson and Pashley will be aided by club captain Steven Caldwell, along with acting captain Graham Alexander'

They will presumably be helping the team prepare for our next match this Saturday against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

It remains to be seen whether a new manager will be announced before the match and thus given a baptsm of fire against the Red Devils and current League champions.

The new manager,it is clear will be given a clean sheet to bring in his own backroom staff with virtually nobody left at Turf Moor now to be considered for the roles.

Oh god I hope we have a manager in place by the time we play United. Micky Phelan,come on lad come and do the job for us! Surely there has to be someone out there who would remain loyal to this club. Local boy and former player,Phelan could be just the tonic we need!

not to sure we need a manager that badly, its a game we more than likely will lose, the team should no what they doing by now and just needs to be picked, once they cross the white line there is not much a manager can do imo apart from few tactical changes and make subs, and as all we ever do is attack away then should be bussiness as usual, dobo dobo dobo,,,utc

Dobbo's appointment means that I have now spoken socially to two Burnley managers. Harry Potts was the first one and Dobbo becomes the second. I also owe him a pint though as he bought me that drink after a game of cricket in 1983 he has probably long since moved on ! I wish him, and all the caretaker team, they very best of luck for the length of their tenure.

There is already some written stuff on their website. Entitled something like "Owen Coyle: I'm not the bad guy"
