Which side of the fence do you stand on?
We’ve been asked this many a time by Wanderers fans on the Internet – via twitter, Facebook. We’re even being asked the question on our morning school runs, by neighbours, friends and colleagues who work with us.
It certainly is a hot-topic and one which any manager wishes to avoid. However, please let it be know – we only ran this poll to see what the general consensus thought. The poll itself is not a petition to remove our manager from the club. There are many fans out there, and we have spoken to a fair few personally, who believe Coyle should still be given time, however you also have fans who wish to bid farewell to Coyle and bring in someone who can turn Bolton’s fortunes around.
The poll was also picked up by The Bolton News; links to the articles can be found here and here.
As with any poll, we can’t confirm the authenticity of the votes. What we mean by this is whether all votes placed are by fans of Bolton Wanderers FC. There may have been votes from fans of other clubs to influence/change the outcome of the poll. This, unfortunately, is beyond our control – and we have no way to restrict the poll to just Bolton fans.
There were 2 parts to the poll. One part of the poll focused on which side of the fence you were on – Coyle In or Coyle Out, whilst the other focused on which manager you wish to have in charge if Coyle was relieved of his duties.
Alan Curbishley is a firm favourite; although Steve Kean is also up there – however, we’re sure Bolton fans aren’t that keen on bringing Kean to the club. Those who have voted ‘None of the above’ have provided some alternative names; Billy Davies and Julian Darby’s partnership, Gary Neville has also had a mention and Paulo Di Canio is a strong candidate amongst fans.
A Bolton fan asked why we closed the voting so soon instead of running the poll for over a week, so that it could generate more votes – it’s simple; as we’ve mentioned above, it’s not a petition. The poll was closed today as we didn’t want any focus being taken away from the game this weekend. We wish the lads all the best, and as we’ve previously noted in another article – we’re behind the gaffer whilst he is charge of the club.
