There really is no secret about how how a lot of the fans feel about Owen Coyle. After six games, Bolton are seven points from the top, six from automatic promotion, three from playoffs, and just two from the drop zone in 15th place. It's safe to say that whatever pressure there was on Coyle going into Tuesday, it's certainly ramping up. Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester following the Birmingham City loss, Coyle discussed his future.
"As regards myself, I know what we can do and I know the players we have. If ever there comes a time that somebody thinks that should be their decision, so be it. I've never worried about that in football."
"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."
Coyle was made to rue a controversial penalty awarded to Marlon King that ended up sinking Bolton Wanderers:"It was never a penalty in all the years I've played football.
"Adam Bogdan picks the ball up six yards before any alleged incident. I've seen it back and it's never a penalty; it's never even a soft penalty."
