Bolton Wanderers
January 19, 2010

If Owen Coyle ends up being Bolton's biggest January capture, then it will still have been an excellent transfer window for Bolton.

If Bolton stay up, he'll probably cost Phil Gartside close to the £3million that was reported when the saga began, but I'm sure that by the end of the season that will seem like a bargain.

Dear Tony Cascarino (and everyone else who thinks Owen Coyle would be mad to want to go to Bolton), you are delusional, and from this point on you will not be required to tell me how football works. Please turn in your press credentials and your ghostwriter, and leave me alone.

Like it or not, Bolton Wanderers are an established Premier League club, having been promoted in 2001 and with four Top 8 finishes since then. As good as Burnley have been this season, they are in the top division for the first time since Taxi Driver and Rocky came out.
