I do hope CrossC can help with a few more numbers, as suggested in my above post... Meanwhile the latest gossip about Vlad Weiss reminds me that Weiss, Holden and Wilshere were, of course, the players we were told Coyle wanted to bring to the Turf at the time of his departure. At that time, I and most posters that I can recall on VB wanted some defenders and tacklers to put a stop to all those multi-goal away defeats, the 5-3 horror at West Ham being the most recent I had witnessed. (When incidentally Eagles played brilliantly in a thrilling but pointless comeback.) My thoughts at the time were that Coyle was just feeding his habit, and these were all just the next Guerreros. And maybe he was? But maybe they were the right players to graft onto Bolton's dull but strong spine? And maybe that's why he was scouting them, allegedly for Burnley, but in reality for his next instantly exciting but never yet long-lived motivational experiment? Or maybe they'd have been the spark for a heroic triumph over the fall towards relegation that had already begun for us, with no win for weeks, and a manager beginning to look short of ideas for what to do about it. I don't need to tell anyone where Jack Wilshere has gone on to. Weiss was on our screens at the World Cup. Holden amazed me, after breaking his leg early in his Bolton career, by becoming one of the, if not the, PL's leading tacklers last year. But if Coyle had come to me asking for my money to buy/loan these particular players given the obvious shortcomings of his Claret team at the time, I'd have said to him that they were not what we needed, and kept my hands in my pockets. Which isn't to say that what our Board and Brian did then choose to invest in was all brilliant. (Fox decent. Cort a disaster. Cork a loan that fired our imaginations... a guy on the train back from Torquay was arguing that Brian was never given a fair chance from day one by the fans.)
