We go back to November 2007 for today’s video memory ... to the moment Owne Coyle was unveiled as the new Burnley FC manager.

Coyle arrived after Turf Moor bosses managed to negotiate a compensation deal with his club St Johnstone.

In his Clarets career, Coyle won the September 2008 Championship Manager of the Month award and his team won promotion to the Premier League by beating Sheffield United 1–0 in the Championship Play-off Final at Wembley Stadium in May 2009.

On June 18th 2009, Coyle signed a contract extension at Turf Moor to stay with Burnley until the end of the 2012–13 season but six months later he controversially left Turf Moor for Bolton Wanderers.
