We’re not on top of the world at Bolton Wanderers at the moment, and as fans it hurts. We’ve been enduring poor defensive performances for nigh on 18 months now, a slide into relegation & The Championship, some ridiculous tactical ‘decisions’ & have felt overall in one hell of a mess.
Unsurprisingly we’ve been fed up, and more and more it’s been easy to hear the results of that on the terraces. Boos at half-time, boos at full-time (& those that haven’t turned to boos have often turned to booze). In recent matches there’ve been ‘Coyle Out’ chants as soon as ten minutes into the match, with 80 minutes left in which we could win the game.
Well Coyle is out now. He’s gone, that’s in our past. Managers come & go but our club will always remain, and that’s why now is the time to resist that recent habit of complaining & booing our own team & get behind the boys.
There’s been every reason to be fed up recently (though opinions will differ on the ‘best’ way to show our club how fed up we are) but there comes a point where vocalising dissatisfaction becomes a habit for some people & it’s clear that it wasn’t about one thing, it wasn’t just about Coyle, it’s just that they really like complaining. Guess what? That does nothing for our team at a crossroads like this. That damages the thing which we’re supposed to be supporting.
There’s still plenty of doubt at the moment. We go into the match against Bristol with a caretaker team in charge & no clear idea yet as to who’ll become our next permanent manager, or what direction we’ll be taking in the foreseeable future. One thing is for sure though: this is a chance to clear the air & help the lads kick on up the table. We’ve a problem just now, we’re sitting in 18th. Lets be part of the solution, leave the dark clouds behind us & help the lads drive us upwards to blue skies. The time for moaning has passed, now’s the time to believe we can get results & show this division what we’re really made of. Now’s the time to sing your hearts out and get behind the lads!!
Come On You Whites!!!
