Thank God Coyle's ugly mug will have gone on the next preview

You are not missing much VR. You wont also wanted to have heard at the end that Coyle might be after both Eagles and Fletcher.Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
turfmanphil
I'm not surprised that he is after them tmp because he brought them to Burnley. Whether he gets them or not is a different story. Eagles is alot more experienced now than when he came to us - Fletcher was untried in the premier league. Surely we can out-price SuCo!

Let's hope so. If Flood's statement is true nobody will be leaving for Bolton this transfer window! The test will come in the Summer I suspect especially if we get relegated and they dont and even if we both stay up some of the players could be attracted by dosh more than loyalty to Burnley FC. Depends how much some of them are more Coyle lovers than Burnley lovers I suppose. If Bolton go down and we stay up (Please God!!) they can feck off
turfmanphil
Spot on TMP. Whilst some of the current squad will have developed a close affinity with the club - Jensen and Robbie being the best examples - the rest will be willing to up sticks in the event of us going down. Can't blame them I suppose but my hope would be that they fight to keep us up because they have a chance of playing every week at Burnley and surely that's better than being a squad player at a ' bigger ' club. Or somewhere like Bolton.

How many of them would really feel that they are first choice premiership players at a big club considering our away form. Look what happened to othe players who moved from us to PL and then to oblivion (or back to us!) I know monet talks, but surely they might also consider what staying with us (in championship or PL) could do for their career. Anyway. I always feel that clubs going down and losing players always seem to attract inflated prices for these players (most of the time). Being in the PL could have soe advantages.
heathfieldclaret
I can see there being a big clear out at Bolton. Most of those players are not the type Coyle is looking for unless he can get them to play a different style of football. I wonder if Laws would be interested in any of their cast offs?
turfmanphil
Being in the Prem brings so many advanatges as you say HC. The club might be sleepwalking potentially back into the Championship if they are not careful. I just hope this determination to keep us debt free when all the other Prem clubs (Pompey apart) seem to thrive on debt doesn't come back to bite us in the bum. Our team could be deprived of all our best players if the drop happens. The financial cost of replacing them might be cushioned by parachute payments and the transfer money we get but we will still then have to rebuild and risk dropping down further
