Eriksson open to Rovers role, as Singh plans short-term deal

Lancashire Telegraph: Sven-Goran Eriksson Sven-Goran Eriksson

FORMER England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has been put forward as a candidate for the Blackburn Rovers job – while bookies favourite Peter Taylor has not been contacted.

The Lancashire Telegraph understands that 15 years after backing out of a deal to become Rovers boss, Eriksson’s name has been forwarded to the club by his representatives as the Ewood outfit continue their search for Henning Berg’s successor on what Shebby Singh says will be initially a short-term contract.

The Swede said he would be interested in the role but was quick to stress no attempt to contact him had been made by Rovers. It is understood Rovers are unlikely to pursue Eriksson either, with owners Venky’s considering numerous other options.

Global advisor Singh said yesterday the club were planning to appoint a manager for six months initially.

He said: “At this moment in time we are looking to offer a short term contract, a Rovers’ reserve team boss Gary Bowyer will continue in temporary charge for Saturday’s FA Cup visit of Bristol City, despite the surprise emergence of Taylor as a favourite for the vacancy.

The former England under 21 boss’ name sprang to the top of the bookmakers list of candidates on Tuesday a six-month contract with specific targets and upon achieving those targets, it will trigger off a longer term contract. So we are looking to reward success and not failure.”

Former England under–21 boss, Taylor, sprang to the top of the bookmakers list of candidates on Tuesday.

Sources close to Taylor said he has received no contact from Rovers and was in the dark about where the link had come from.

Taylor, who declined a director of football role at Plymouth, would be interested in the position but is not believed to be expecting any contact from Rovers.

It is also understood that former Preston boss Billy Davies and ex-Rovers coach Mark Bowen are interested in the job.

Meanwhile Eriksson admitted the vacant managerial role at Rovers would be attractive for anyone.

The 64-year-old agreed to become Rovers boss in 1997 but, after changing his mind for family reasons, he joined Lazio instead.

He has enjoyed spells at Manchester City and Leicester City in England and has recently been doing some temporary work at clubs in Thailand.

He said: “No one from Blackburn has asked me about it but of course Blackburn Rovers are a club I have looked up over the years. It is a very good club and a big club and they belong in the Premier League. It would be a job anyone would be interested in.

“Of course I would like to get back into football and I love English football, whether you are talking about the national job, Premier League football, Championship or even League One and Two.”

Svennis at Ewood? Doesn't ring true somehow though I wouldn't mind that. But he has not been contacted yet and neither Peter Taylor nor Billy Davies been in talks yet? It seems that Shebby is waiting until after the FA Cup game and hoping for a third straight win so that he can get GB to take the reins as caretaker manager until the end of the season?

Cant say any of the managers scream out to me thus far, although i guess that is whats to be expected. I wouldnt mind seeing Curbishly given the chance with a 40+% win rate at West Ham in the Premier League and a decent spell at Charlton, he could push us into promotion although he has been out of the game for a while. Obvious there are managers such as Capello and Di Matteo who would bring vast amounts of experience but wouldn't have any sort of interest in the job. Dowie, SGE, Hoddle, Hiddink, Hodgson, Hughes, McClaren, Strachen and many more would fill up my list that if i was in Singh's position. I wonder how many established managers will be on his though.

Does this mean the Coaches that the new manager wants will be on short term contracts as well. Otherwise it will mean that a man with a short term contract will be employing people on longer contracts than himself. They need to get some coaches in soon as two people cant run everything and you get the feeling that Mr Bowyer will be doing the job a little longer than we expect. We will just have to wait and see

Who on earth will want to ruin their football CV for the sake of a 6 month contract, working with a set of clowns.

No wonder a no-hoper like Peter Taylor is the bookies favourite. Sounds like someone has gone to Venkys and told them that they are lining up a former England manager without mentioning that it was only for one game or the fact that he was recently sacked by League two Bradford.

Also, in the unlikely event that we do find a manager who does well, then he is free to talk to other clubs after 6 months.

Shebby Singh is a clown. His appearance on 606 made me realise just how bad things have become at Rovers, for someone like that to be running the club.

I'm beginning to think that the best way forward for Rovers now is for Venkys to get fed up with funding the club, which they surely will do when the parachute payments run out and then hopefully some local business men take over the club when the club is worth next to nothing.

Flopped at Leicester with a far bigger budget and a better squad than we have and sacked a while ago now. His career is effectively now over, and he is looking for one last pay day, probably to pay for his latest Goma, no thanks. Even Peter Taylor, would be better than him, at least he would be a cheap failure unlike Sven.
Heads up for bedding Ulrika by the way.

no point having a pop at andy cryer and LT on here - as we all know understanding what the heck is going on at ewood is like trying to knit fog.

take berg for example, apparently according to our wonderful global adviser he applied for the job in the first week, whilst we were taking our time to ensure we made the correct decision, and then after admitting that berg was not first choice he was appointed five weeks later whilst the club had been allowed to drift. he was onto a loser from day one.

in previous articles it has been said that nothing happens without the say-so of madame desai. this begs a question why do we need all these courtesans all over the place?

shebby on his meandering interview last night on radio lancs says he is the one who is making ALL the decisions at ewood and yet he is NOT A DIRECTOR (i wonder why?). so if he is making all the decisions (subject to approval from desai) then what is the point of agnew and shaw? are they in place purely because shebby is not a director?

my understanding is that shaw and agnew did not go to see the loons is pune voluntarily and have been invisible since they got back. shebby has said he will not comment on his relationship with tweedle dee and dum and yet talks about the enemy within - this can only be a historical reference to kean (long departed), the preston two, or some of the indian ownership.

taylor, davis, eriksson - who knows? all available as guns for hire. i am prepared to bet on the basis of implications from the likes of radio lancs that taylor rumour came out of india - despite anything that singh said yesterday. davis i dont think has made any comment - but you can understand how supporters put 2 and 2 together given his record and availability and nobody has mentioned sven apart from sven and his advisers (i guess that atol stil bloke).

what is sure now that if it is a 6 month contract - no manager currently in employment will be applying for the role....so the field is limited. i am amazed that peter reid hasn't been mentioned yet given his far east connections...(watch this space)

We need a manager with some 'bite' who won't be afraid to stand up to the likes of Singh, Agnew and Shaw if need be. Sven's too laid back.

Also, can you imagine the unveiling? How many of Sven's, "weeeell..." do you reckon we'd get to Singh's, "you know?"

Sven was conned by the fake Sheik because he can't resist taking money off fools.

If they were not connected to Blackburn Rovers I would say Venkys, Singh, Shaw and Agnew fully deserve to be working with someone who, like them, lacks a functioning moral compass.

Well it appears as though Shebby has switched from an ex-England Under 21 manager to an ex-Full England manager !

I personally wouldn't touch Sven with a barge pole.
He's only ever been in it for the money.
He even went to Notts County believing they had wealthy financial backers.

Remember that Shebby had previously stated that an appointment would be announced on New Years Day?

The only thing that Shebby / Venkys have learnt is that they should not have given Berg a 3 year contract when his only target was promotion.

With the January window now open, what chance does any new manager have of strengthening the squad and releasing / selling the likes of Robinson Givet, Dunn, Etuhu, Formica and the Poruguese contingent?

Unless the divisions within the club are addressed we will not progress - that is certain.

Would anyone like to guess the size of the crowd on Saturday.?
I feel it could be a club record low for the FA cup.
Well it appears as though Shebby has switched from an ex-England Under 21 manager to an ex-Full England manager ! I personally wouldn't touch Sven with a barge pole. He's only ever been in it for the money. He even went to Notts County believing they had wealthy financial backers. If the club hasn't spoke to Taylor or Sven, just who have we spoken to?

Shebby said on Radio Lancs last night that we won't be strengthening the squad as it is strong enough already. However, if some players knock on his door to leave, then he will have to let them go. He also suggested that the departure of the backroom staff hasn't left a big hole as those left behind are doing an excellent job - i.e. no need to replace them.

Three coaches off the books and three or four players if Singh has his way.

Who needs coaches when we have Shebby Singh ? They seem to be getting the wage bill down again but we'll be left with a skeleton of a club. It gets more depressing by the day.

Just get it sorted one way or the other. Is it really too much to ask after the last two years???

David Brent or Frank Spencer would make a better job of it.

Whilst the current regime are 'running' the club Rovers are going nowhere. Survival at best, relegation at worst. They couldnt care less about the club or the fans.

No plan, no investment, no ******* idea.

The only 'strategy' I see is run the club into the ground and pocket the assets. Wonder what the clubs 'real' finances look like?

I believe we are in a catch 22 situation. Having said that, someone is going to get the job, and when this happens, lets all get behind him and the team, and stop this petty name calling.

Nah I kinda disagree with that. I said to myself at the beginning of the year I'm starting a clean slate with Rovers, I'm coming in fresh. The past is the past. From now on I'm looking forward and up, and guess what happenned??
Thats right I feel like I've had an RSJ removed from my shoulders, and now I feel epic, must be the money supermarket thing.
As an example lets look at israel, a country that has existed for three thousand years and was nothing but swampland and sand when the jews settled there. Now because of the middle easts failure to MOVE ON and get on with living in the present, they have all sorts of shister going on. Or what about the Falklands and Argentinas failure to get over it.
Now even Americans like Sean Penn are digging up dirt saying it belongs to Argentina, er hang on a minute Sean, Great Britain has had sovereignty over the Falklands longer than America has had over Texas, which used to be part of Mexico, so Are the Americans going to give Texas back to the Mexicans??? All this is irrelevant but do you see where I am coming from
if you keep letting the past two years grind you down and mince you into a squashed insignificant blob, if you feel that it always keeps going wrong then you end up on prozac or drinking yourself to death. Not me, I don't work like that. I prefer to be a happy clapping winner instead of a moaning depressing loser.
Why be miserable when there is just no need? Can you not see whats happening to you? Are you driving your families happiness into the ground??
