I’m interested in Premier League protests, and especially the battle between the board and protest groups at Everton. Tomorrow I’ll be blogging on the Kenwright Out “issue”, trying to separate fact from the factions, but today I thought I’d post some pictures and quotes I’ve found on t’internet. It doesn’t look like fans of other sides are too happy with their owners or managers either. Are we all moaners at heart?
(Look out for the corking “Abramovich Out!” banner below…)
On David Moyes:
On Jez Moxley:
On Chairman Phil Gartside’s appointment of Gary Megson:
“Within an hour of Whites’ chairman Phil Gartside announcing Megson’s appointment just before 12.45pm yesterday, more than 70 readers had left comments on The Bolton News website criticising the appointment.
But by teatime, about 350 had left messages, while others gathered at the Reebok Stadium to vent their frustration.
On Manager Owen Coyle:
On Chairman Dave Whelan:
“Look i was at latics well before whelan took control of the club ,yes he got us where we are ,and yes we would have been fooked without him ,but now its time to have some bottle ,get your blinkers off lets tell whelan what we really think time to shout whelan out ,this club will still be here when that t w a t as gone ……or are you just like mice …get some bottle true latics fans lets stand up for the club and not the fooker who is destroying us bit by bit no matter what league we play in wigan athletic will still go on …….he is selling our assets and not replacing them only a fool would deny that …….whelan outtttttt”
On Manager Roberto Martinez:
“I’ve never been a Martinez fan, I think his tactics are awful and his football management at top level is just short of woeful. Whelan has said he will never sack Martinez, yet I based our season on beating Bolton at home, a game which we lost 3-1. Fulham is next up at home, and I think a defeat should spell the end of Martinez’s murderers reign at Wigan Athletic. He has shown solidarity to the club by turning down Aston Villa, who by now should be thanking God Roberto turned them down. Martinez OUT?”
