Bowyer: ‘Let’s get into the winning habit’

BLACKBURN Rovers’ caretaker manager Gary Bowyer has stressed the importance of keeping the ‘winning habit’ – as he gets the opportunity to scratch a 26-year family itch.

Bowyer, who is set to continue in temporary charge until the end of the month with under 18 boss Terry McPhillips, revealed there would be no cup reshuffle for this afternoon’s third round visit of Bristol City as he looks to stretch Rovers’ two-match winning streak.

Some 26 years after his dad, Ian Bowyer, was interviewed for the Rovers hotseat – ultimately losing out to Don Mackay – the caretaker boss is being touted by some as a candidate for the full time role at Ewood Park after a winning start to his temporary reign.

But the man who has been in charge of the reserves for almost two years insists he is just focusing on helping the club out wherever he can.

He said: “Momentum is very important. The players are very eager to carry this little run on and we are going into the Bristol City looking to win it.

“I don’t think league positions come into the FA Cup. We have seen over the years you can get upsets in the FA Cup, so there are no favourites. It will be a tough game.

“There won’t be any drastic changes. We will have a look and see if we have picked up any knocks, but we will be looking to get the win and get into the next round.

“Tomorrow our focus is to try and beat Bristol City. It will be a tough game but that is all we can control.

“It will be a tough game at Ewood but the fans have been magnificent for the last couple of games. We need their support and hopefully they can come along and cheer the lads on again because it was greatly appreciated.

“We have the option to rotate because we have a big and a good squad but the players are eager to keep the momentum going.”

Bowyer was non committal when asked if he would be interested in succeeding Henning Berg full time, insisting he would just continue until told otherwise.

“We were approached on Thursday and asked if we could continue until January,” he said. “I have said it all along, we have been trying to help the club and that is what we will continue to do.

“We were in regular contact with the club and when they asked us to do that, we just helped out again.

“We can only control what we can do. Even though it has settled it down for a month, Im sure people will still be linked with it and who knows who pops out in the next month. It might be the ideal candidate and the club might have to act. They might act sooner.

“Myself and Terry are not daft. We have been in the game long enough and seen it could go the other way quite easily in the next couple of games. Then we would not be as popular as we are this week.

“To be fair to the players they deserve a lot of credit. All we have said to them is we can only control what happens on the training ground and matches and that is what they have done.

“They have focused on winning. They are professional players and want to win for themselves and the fans.”

What a great attitude by GB. Seems like a genuine bloke. Some honest comments that are very welcoming. Good luck today. I agree with the appointment of the top job being delayed to ensure the right person is picked (including consideration of GB) but the only issue for me is who is in control of picking and choosing the transfer targets?

Now, that's what our midfield needs... A/an Ian Bowyer type...if GB has got his dad's determination then the team can only benefit.

So far Bowyer has managed to keep the fiasco that currently is Rovers off the pitch and is getting the best out of the squad. I agree the squad is big but good? What is apparent is that Bowyer is managing them, they are fitter and Bowyer understands his tactics and the players are confident in his abilities. Something we didn't see in Berg and Kean. Another win will do the teams confidence a world of good and three wins on the bounce will really give us that winning habit.

For me, it seems Bowyer and McPhillips have done well in keeping the footballers concentrating on their game whilst the clowns continue to perform in their circus act.

Perhaps due to my mistrust of the clowns, I find it rather convenient that no new manager along with their desired new signings will be appointed whilst the transfer window is open.

On the other hand, perhaps stabilisation, whilst the results are going for us, is what is needed at the club right now.

Baldly....the delay is not to give the chicken farmers more time to pick the right man...it's pure and simply to avoid spending in the window.... don't fool yourself mate...the vultures are already circling ready to pick off our good players, especially with sloppy ding promising them they could leave if we wasn't challenging for promotion come Christmas....well let me tell you mate, Christmas has been and gone and we're not even sure if we'll make the play-offs....even if they do sanction the buying of some players...how does scabby minge know who will be right for the new man?.....it's a farce mate...nothing more nothing less....i would also like to add i'm 100% behind Gazza and hope the lads continue to gain more confidence and that shows in their performances, but this situation is NOT the way forward....it's pure and simply standing still......WHERE'S THE INVESTMENTS YOU CHICKEN FARMING MORONS?

Agree about GB's attitude Baldy - he really does seem to be quite normal and down to earth and totally in touch with reality (with his comments about being flavour of the right month now) and that is exactly what we need right at the moment. As for who is looking at transfers targets - well I don't believe that we are looking to bring anyone in though we may let a couple go (Givet and Robinson)...so maybe even Shebby can manage that (Or Shaw and Agnew).

To be honest I am not too concerned if we progress to the next round or not today (Though I think we will win easily) as there is only one focus for the club this season - Play-Offs and Promotion.

'Myself and Terry are not daft. We have been in the game long enough and seen it could go the other way quite easily in the next couple of games. Then we would not be as popular as we are this week.

“To be fair to the players they deserve a lot of credit. All we have said to them is we can only control what happens on the training ground and matches and that is what they have done.

“They have focused on winning. They are professional players and want to win for themselves and the fans.”

Level headed and a winner, I would surmise ?

Unleash the frustration and slowly but surely the stability will surface.

90 minutes of commitment pulsating through that B&W shirt that is all I ask for. Under Bowyer and Co this is realistic and fair to say.

totally agree we need stabilization within the squad but why cant we appoint a man who for a few weeks uses his time at the club to see how Gazza is running things, watch the players in training and from that he can have SOME input on who we should let go and who we need to keep, also suggest who we could do with bringing in to compliment the way he see's us going forward, he could also use this time to get his back room staff sorted and settled.....but hey, that's applying logic and the Indian chicken pluckers are void of such a thing....scabby and venkys out....C'mon you blues

Dear Mr Gary B...
ok....back to the footy.....!!!

Olson is going as he wants to play in the premier and Givet wants to return to his home land.
For sure they will be missed like many others who have left.
but we need to find other players capable of gelling together and creating a good team at BRFC.

I think most of us know which players are moving on at BRFC.
But who do we want in playing....!!

I'm sure we know a player or two out there in the Football leagues who in their opinion good be a good player for BRFC.

Lets start pointing out the good players who could be good signings for Rovers.

Liverpool reserves.....
Player name:Jon Flanagan
Date of birth:21 Jan 1993
Nationality:English
Position:Defender

livepl res
Player name:Jack Robinson
Date of birth:1 Sep 1993
Nationality:English
Position:Defender

stoke
Player name:Wilson Palacios
Date of birth:29 Jul 1984
Nationality:Hondura
Position:Midfielder

A villa
Player name:Ron Vlaar
Date of birth:16 Feb 1985

Tony McMahon Shfld utd

As for who is looking at transfers targets - well I don't believe that we are looking to bring anyone in though we may let a couple go (Givet and Robinson)...so maybe even Shebby can manage that (Or Shaw and Agnew).

Sorry about the lack of emails Mr W....I have been travelling a bit to see the family etc over Christmas and New Year but will be back tomorrow.

For sure they will be missed like many others who have left.
but we need to find other players capable of gelling together and creating a good team at BRFC.

I think most of us know which players are moving on at BRFC.
But who do we want in playing....!!

I'm sure we know a player or two out there in the Football leagues who in their opinion good be a good player for BRFC.

Lets start pointing out the good players who could be good signings for Rovers.

The BBC's match preview says that Fernandez and Payne could be thrown into the side so it's nice to read that Bowyer doesn't plan on tinkering with the squad. I'm all for the youngsters getting their chance but I think stability is more important at the moment. City are without a few key players today so I'm going for a 3-1 win for us. I wish I could believe we'll put another five past them but FA Cup ties are always tricky.

Agree about GB's attitude Baldy - he really does seem to be quite normal and down to earth and totally in touch with reality (with his comments about being flavour of the right month now) and that is exactly what we need right at the moment. As for who is looking at transfers targets - well I don't believe that we are looking to bring anyone in though we may let a couple go (Givet and Robinson)...so maybe even Shebby can manage that (Or Shaw and Agnew).

well almost right at 2-0.....would be nice to get a good home tie in the draw tomorrow (it wont be the mighty clarets though eh!) ;-)
