Oppositions View - Coyle - Bolton home
Bolton boss Owen Coyle was not happy with the match officials after seeing his side go down 2-1 at St Andrews on Tuesday night.

The goal that decided the contest came from the penalty spot just three minutes into the second half, Marlon King converted the kick, that was awarded because the linesman spotted a foul by full-back Marcos Alonso.

Coyle told Sky Sports: 'It was never a penalty in all the years I've played football.

'(Goalkeeper) 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.'


The latest defeat at St Andrews means that the Trotters have lost all their away games so far this season, but Coyle believes that this is because of decisions that have gone against his side, that maybe would have gone their way on another day.

He added: 'That's three away games (in the league) now and three terrible decisions.

'At Burnley there was a clearly offside goal and these are obviously crucial turning points in the game.'

If there is one thing guaranteed to make me lose all respect for a manager (even one of our own), it is when they come up with statements such as 'It was never a penalty in all the years I've played football.” This sort of whinging makes me wonder if the particular manager has actually been in the game for more than five minutes. Yes, some penalties seem to be a lot softer than others but, that does not stop them being penalties. I wonder if Coyle has ever complained about a penalty that was awarded TO his side, surely he doesn’t expect us to believe that he has never been given the benefit of the doubt “in all the years” he has played football. He then goes on to complain about the decisions going against him in all the other away matches. He seems to me like a desperate man, fearful for his job and anxiously trying to excuse his sides lack of results.
