Burnley banner

Burnley used to believe that Owen Coyle was God. He raised them from the second division to play in the premiership alongside the footballing superstars. Now he has abandoned them and gone to Bolton. True, he used to play for Bolton and his heart is more likely to be there, but it's a bit of a kick in the teeth from the man who banged on about loyalty.

Burnley fans are
understandably bitter, but they know money talks. After all, they were among the first clubs who introduced player's wages to the league in 1885. They've been paying for it ever since.

Him Outdoors says he's 'very disappointed' but he's ready to shrug it off and get on with it, but not without cheering on
this banner, dsiplayed at the recent fixture between Bolton and Burnley. The one below isn't quite as witty, but it fits on the page.
