As we all know, after 6 games Bolton lie in a rather embarrassing 15th place following yet another away loss, the fourth for Bolton this season (including Crawley Town in the Capital One Cup)?
Yesterday however, Coyle is reported to have not been worried about the sack:
My concern is making sure the players are working their socks off for Bolton Wanderers, which they’ve done and they’ve come off the wrong side of some terrible decisions.”
This may be the case, but the sands of time do certainly seem to be looking limited following a poor start to the season and it appears Coyle has now looked to secure the services of former Liverpool, Bradford, Coventry, Blackburn and now Aston Villa utility player Stephen Warnock.
The 30 year old, known predominantly as a full back, featured 35 times for Aston Villa last season, but has failed to make a single appearance so far this season, and looks to be firmly out of Paul Lambert’s plans.
Warnock has plenty of Premier League experience and was also twice capped by England in 2008 and 2010, albeit very brief appearances.
Alan Nixon of the Daily Mirror who is known to have significant connections with Bolton Wanderers F.C. has suggested on twitter Warnock is seen as a midfield enforcer as opposed to his favoured position of full back.
Is Warnock the answer to our problems and a good transfer for Bolton Wanderers? What player/players do you think will help kickstart our season? Or could this simply be the nail in Coyle’s coffin?
