Fulham Vs. Bolton Wanderers, 2011 Premier League: Fulham Ease To 2-0 Win

If Owen Coyle and Bolton Wanderers survive this season, it'll be a miracle. The Trotters are glued to the bottom of the table and on a miserable run of form, and that changed not at all this week. Fulham hosted the stuttering side at Craven Cottage, and although Martin Jol's men have flattered to deceive this season they had little difficulty in brushing their visitors aside.

Bolton were restricted to the odd counterattack as Fulham completely controlled the game, scoring in quick succession through the head of Clint Dempsey and then via a cute chip from former FC Twente striker Bryan Ruiz which left Jussi Jaaskelainen staring mournfully as the ball sailed into the back of the net. Bolton had a few chances to get back into the match, but ultimately they weren't good enough to seriously threaten Mark Schwarzer or their hosts' lead.

I get that Coyle's without his best players, and losing Danny Sturridge to Chelsea over the summer certainly didn't help, but how are people not calling for his head at this point? Bolton are awful!
