Don't know who he is but I wish him well. Not sure who's making this decision though, bearing in mind we have no long term manager at the club. I could take a good guess though.... and get out.

I've been watching & photographing Todd for around 3 years at youth and U21 level for Chelsea. He's an attack minded full back, strong in the tackle, very nippy and with an amazing shot on him (witness his equaliser in the 2011 National Reserve League Playoff victory against Blackburn! - http://thechels.net/
2011/05/reserves-che
lsea-1-1-blackburn-r
overs-chelsea-win-5-
4-on-penalties/)

He also played for the FA Youth Cup team that beat Blackburn in last season's FA Youth Cup.

This year, he's been a vocal captain of the U21's, and although his form at the start of the year was mixed, he earned a loan spell with Preston, which has progressed acceptably if not spectacularly.

He's certainly someone that I hold out strong hope for for the future & one I think will carve out a good career in the top two divisions, though not necessarily at Chelsea.

An attack-minded pacey right back is exactly what we need now and what we have not had since Lucas Neil and Emerton were playing. Will add some good and much needed balance to the team. Well done Team GB and welcome to Rovers Todd Kane.

Strange goings-on regards the search for our next manager:

MICHAEL Appleton has emerged as a shock candidate for the Blackburn manager’s job.

The Blackpool boss has barely been in the Bloomfield Road hotseat for two months but one bookmaker has strangely slashed his odds to 1/10 to fill the gap left by Henning Berg at Ewood Park.

It would be a huge shock if the 37-year-old were to join Pool’s Championship rivals and Bloomfield Road bosses don’t expect him to quit.

Blackburn were remaining silent on their search for a new manager last night but have not dismissed the Appleton link. Should they pursue him, Pool chairman Karl Oyston would be in line for a second compensation payment this season.

Appleton did not take training yesterday, though his absence was planned. Pool’s players have been given today off, so all eyes will be on their Squires Gate training ground tomorrow morning to see if the manager oversees the session as expected.

Bookmaker Stan James yesterday reported ‘substantial’ bets on Appleton taking over at Rovers. Having started the day as their 25/1 outsider, he ended it as 1/4 favourite. Since dismissing Berg a fortnight ago, Blackburn have won all three matches under caretaker Gary Bowyer.

Don't think he would be on my list for the role at Ewood - I would much prefer Gus Poyet who has also been linked with us today. But it is reported that Rovers don't want to pay the 2 million pounds compensation to Brighton. I don't think he was mentioned last time round - probably cos he seems so secure in his job there and not for moving? Maybe this is just Poyet's agent putting his name out there hoping to secure him a better contract on the south coast!

Others being linked with the job are Sean ODriscoll, Peter Taylor and Micky Adams.

It shows just how far we have sunk in the past 2 years.

If Shebby had only given Berg a contract until the end of the season with a guaranteed extension if he had gained promotion we would have more money in the kitty to find the right man.

Specualton is rife now as nothing is coming out of the club, which for once is a good thing. I'm guessing S & A's "dressing down" in Pune brought an end to the leaks.

To all asking whose making these decisons, heard last night it is indeed, Shebby.

Adam Henley is an attack-minded, pacy right-back. It looks like they're getting in a carbon copy because it suits Team GB's style of play.

Kane looked good against us last year, I suspect he'll do well for us. If Olsson does go I suspect his brother or Josh Morris will be played at left-back. Hopefully Henley would be played there when fit again.

Mr French - you can be safely assured that my backside will be revealed on the Town Hall steps if Appelton is appointed !

Bowyer and Co are doing the job that we could hope to wish for so why go backwards ?

Not even Venky and Co are that daft - are they !!?

This is is a non story......

Sounds as though we have a decent right back coming on in any old how :)

Sounds like a very sensible move and will help keep the present improved move together. He should be hungry to do well. Hope they don't appoint appont manager before Gary has been given his full month because we may have a natural emerging talent on our hands. For the first time in ages we are playing like a compettitive outfit with good tactics etc. Not impressed with any of the bunch that the bookies are listing. Not surprised if Appleton has fallen out with Oysten with the comments he made about the pitch and the need to bring in 4 or 5 players urgently. He's lost his two loan strikers this week. Didn't sound happy. He's not won enough for me to be given the job.

Strange goings-on regards the search for our next manager:

The Blackpool boss has barely been in the Bloomfield Road hotseat for two months but one bookmaker has strangely slashed his odds to 1/10 to fill the gap left by Henning Berg at Ewood Park.

It would be a huge shock if the 37-year-old were to join Pool’s Championship rivals and Bloomfield Road bosses don’t expect him to quit.

Reading the stuff on here sounds like a lot of pure fantasy. Where do you folk get ll this tripe? I do not make such comments because unlike others I do not know what goes on behind the scenes at Ewod. I have now started concentrating on the official website for actual statements.

Talking of the website, has anyone looked at the Whos who section lately? Apart from the many blanks, there is no mention whatseover of dear Mr Singh, which is surprising coinsiderng the many statements he makes - seems to be about 3 a day!

I think that he should rename himself as Policy Director, as that is what he seems to act as but that would over;lap the other directors roles. There does ot seem to be a publicity director, so perhaps that is what he is!!!!

Anyway, in the Notts Forest edition of the progamme there was a statement of intent from Venkys, which is a step in the right direction. If we accept that their past decisions were down to stupidity, naiviety, lack of experience or sheer subborness, they have at least admitted their errors.

With that in mind I am going to be optimistic and assume that they might make some right decisions and that the club will move. three things they could do to right now improve things is
1. get rid of the looney one
2. Ensure the club present a united front to the outside world, because at the moment is comes across as chaotic.
3. Have the owners or least the directors sit in the directors box on matchdays, because an empty box certainly gives an impression of disinterest.

However, I doubt if things like that will change.

If Gary Bowyer should read this, thank you for what you have done so far, you have achieved where Kean and Berg failed so badly. Yourself and Terry McPhillips are doing great.

He also played for the FA Youth Cup team that beat Blackburn in last season's FA Youth Cup.

This year, he's been a vocal captain of the U21's, and although his form at the start of the year was mixed, he earned a loan spell with Preston, which has progressed acceptably if not spectacularly.

He's certainly someone that I hold out strong hope for for the future & one I think will carve out a good career in the top two divisions, though not necessarily at Chelsea.

United Front? Does that mean we use Rooney, Hernandez & RVP as spokespeople for us?

3. Have the owners or least the directors sit in the directors box on matchdays, because an empty box certainly gives an impression of disinterest.
Actually an empty box (vessel) makes most noise, or so they say. And why would we want to put our dirty washing on show. Better to pretend we don't actually have any directors.

Strange goings-on regards the search for our next manager:

MICHAEL Appleton has emerged as a shock candidate for the Blackburn manager’s job.

The Blackpool boss has barely been in the Bloomfield Road hotseat for two months but one bookmaker has strangely slashed his odds to 1/10 to fill the gap left by Henning Berg at Ewood Park.

It would be a huge shock if the 37-year-old were to join Pool’s Championship rivals and Bloomfield Road bosses don’t expect him to quit.

Blackburn were remaining silent on their search for a new manager last night but have not dismissed the Appleton link. Should they pursue him, Pool chairman Karl Oyston would be in line for a second compensation payment this season.

Appleton did not take training yesterday, though his absence was planned. Pool’s players have been given today off, so all eyes will be on their Squires Gate training ground tomorrow morning to see if the manager oversees the session as expected.

Bookmaker Stan James yesterday reported ‘substantial’ bets on Appleton taking over at Rovers. Having started the day as their 25/1 outsider, he ended it as 1/4 favourite. Since dismissing Berg a fortnight ago, Blackburn have won all three matches under caretaker Gary Bowyer.

Don't think he would be on my list for the role at Ewood - I would much prefer Gus Poyet who has also been linked with us today. But it is reported that Rovers don't want to pay the 2 million pounds compensation to Brighton. I don't think he was mentioned last time round - probably cos he seems so secure in his job there and not for moving? Maybe this is just Poyet's agent putting his name out there hoping to secure him a better contract on the south coast!
