Don't worry Clarets fans, now you have even more reason to vilify Owen Coyle.

What will we get? Jimmy Anderson whining on Twitter? 'Judas' comments on the Bolton forum? More of your inbred teens attacking opposition fans while terrified families and decent folk try to get out of the way?

I can't wait.

No, I created my account about two months ago - if you look at the Phil McNulty blogs about Owen Coyle you will find several postings from me there, with times and dates. It is fair to say that the perpetual vitriol coming from Burnley fans is a source of irritation and sadness, however.

My apologies largehat, but your profile states you've been a member since today!

I'm really not going over the Coyle issue with you, it's been done to death and it appears only yourself wishes to ressurrect it.

I had a BBC account for a couple of months, but this is the first time I've posted on 606, which I am guessing works as some sort of sub-account.

I wish it were true that I am the only one bringing up Owen Coyle, but there was a thread created after the games today by a Burnley fan in Taiwan. The first gripe he had, even before discussing his own team, was a swipe at 'Judas Coyle's cloggers' or similar. He's sat up in Taiwan watching his team lose at home to the worst team in the league and the first thing he is upset about is Bolton's result.

However, exiled, if you're telling me as a Burnley fan he's in a very small minority and most Burnley fans have got over it, and we will see no repeat of the lingering bad feeling next season (or whenever we next meet), I'll be the first to express my delight.

Terrible defending cost the clarets again. Brian Laws cannot soley blamed for Burnleys poor form, he's been thrown in the deep end! I blame the "board", for their lack of ambition. If they'd have backed Owen Coyle in the January transfer window, he wouldn't have left, and we wouldn't be having this conversation, it really is that simple!

Good to see Patterson back! He did well. Lets hope he continues in same vein. Think I spotted him and the Great Willie Irvine having a chat after match in Turf Man's restaurant. Getting a few tips from the Master no doubt! YOU CLARETS!

It was me sat up in Taiwan watching Bolton v Wolves and I wasn't more upset about Bolton winning than Burnley losing it just happened to be the first thing I mentioned,that I had sat up till the small hours watching a poor game and it capped a very dismal day.I'd quite happily Bolton stay up if it meant Burnley staying up too but we're doomed now,and as Brian Laws has proved he's no good in the Championship the dark days are returning I fear.Ho-hum,at least I'm on holiday on the other side of the world and not at home where I'd be even more despondent along with my fellow Clarets.
