Chris Dunlavy in today's Football League Paper:



"Good luck to Gary Bowyer. He was always too decent a man to act as a stooge for Owen Oyston.



The former Blackburn boss delivered a promotion, refused to criticise stay-away supporters and even paid for training facilities out of his own pocket.



But his dignified presence served only to distract attention from the canker at the heart of this famous club.



Now he has quit, pushed over the edge by an owner reportedly unwilling to retain key players or even refurbish a derelict training ground.



Short term, it is a blow for supporters. For two years, Bowyer held their club together. In his absence, a return to League Two now looks likely.



Long term, however, it is better the problems remain unmasked. Maybe then the rest of the fanbase will join the thousands already boycotting games and stop pouring money into the pockets of a man they despise.



Protests have failed. Even this week's offer to sell up for £5m to Valeri Belokon was made knowing the Latvian could not accept a deal that did not include the ground.



Bowyer's reign offered brief respite. Shouldn't his departure provide the impetus to start a phoenix club? Because a decade slogging through Non-League would be a lot better than another decade of neglect. "





I don't think Mr Dunlavy has got his finger on the pulse if he thinks Owen will be around for another decade.
No but he shows a good understanding and sums it perfectly why I wasn't too arsed about Bowyer leaving.
"Unwilling to retain key players",wasn't the fact Oyston refused to sell Tilt the reason for Bowyers departure?

Reckon he found out that he wasn't getting what he wanted to replace him....straw Kaboooom!
Apparently Coyle and Preece seen at Bloomfield today
Who writes this shit?



Bowyer's Exit may be last straw for fans.




Will it fuck. He could rape their children and the Scabs would still go.

But they don't despise him. They carry on giving the old rapist their money.



The cunts that go through the gates don't give a fuck who they give their money to. They are that fucking stupid they don't realise or care about the sacrifice of thousands of others.
hope coyle doesn't get the job,he's lost the plot-got ross county relegated from the Scottish premier
