Rovers will not sack Owen Coyle after 7 games. Why should they ? But they will sack him after 16 games. Why ? Because that is the benchmark they have set. They surprisingly sacked Bowyer after 16 games last season . Bowyer had 17 points from 16 games. We were in 16th position, 5 places above the relegation zone . We had scored 15 goals and conceded 15 goals. Sounds like eutopia by today's standards. So if after 16 games Coyle has an equivalent or worse record he will be sacked. Stands to sense, because that is the president set by the owners. Failure to sack Coyle, should he fall short, will be seen as hypocrytical by the fans and a case of wrongful dismissal by Bowyers lawyers who would have a field day, especially as Bowyer was working under FFP restrictions and a transfer embargo. Coyle has not had those restrictions imposed on him. As a matter of interest, after 7 games last season, we had 4 points and were in 23rd position. One place higher and 2 points more. So not a lot of differance, but we had conceded 9 goals and scored 6, compared to conceded 15 and scored 6 this time round. Make no mistake, Coyle's target to survive is 18 points from 16 games. We shall see !
