Appleton appointed as Blackburn Rovers boss

Lancashire Telegraph: Michael Appleton Michael Appleton

BLACKBURN Rovers have confirmed that Michael Appleton has been appointed as the club's new manager.

Appleton spent today in talks at Ewood Park and leaves his job as Blackpool boss to take over at Rovers, with assistant Ashley Westwood also making the move.

The duo have put pen to paper on two-and-a-half-year deals as Appleton succeeds Henning Berg as boss, although caretaker manager Gary Bowyer will take charge for the final time at Wolves tonight.

Rovers were granted permission to speak to Appleton and Westwood on Thursday night and the duo arrived at Ewood this morning, accompanied by their lawyer, before finalising personal terms.

Appleton said: “I am delighted to be joining such an historic club.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am excited about the challenge we have ahead of us.

"I can’t wait to start working with what is a very talented group of players.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Blackpool for their efforts during my time there and the chairman for allowing me to come here.

"I wish them all the best for the future.”

Rovers’ managing director Derek Shaw said: “We are delighted to welcome both Michael and Ashley to the football club.

"They are both highly regarded within the game and we are confident that they have the drive and ambition to take this club forward.

"We will do everything in our powers to support them in our quest to make an instant return to the Premier League.”

I'm afraid it is not the players choice. Just like any place of work, the players are the shop floor staff but on tens of thousands of pounds a week.

Do you expect them to name players when quoting? They are only given information on condition they don't disclose sources. Doesn't make it untrue. I imagine some players are unsettled by the constant carousel of managers and each one that hops on isn't any more impressive than the last. Some of those players have worked for top managers. I just don't understand the logic behind any of what happens and suspect logic doesn't come into it. Shaw and Agnew must have made some recommendations when they went to India. How would Venkys opt for Appleton when looking at whats available? Good look Gary and the lads for tonight though. 3 pts is more important than anything.

Like a lot of folk on here I`m not happy as I pointed out in a post yesterday that his record is 1 point a game (Pompei + Blackpool or just Blackpool`s results) However now the decision has been taken it`s up to the fans to get behind the team and manager otherwise it will surely have a detrimental impact on results! How many times have we heard that the fans can be the 12th man? Well now it`s time to show that for BRFC as even though I hate the Venky`s & the current management (especially that idiot Shebby "Numpty" Singh) what we must remember is "Blackburn Rovers FC" are more important, and when history is written - good or bad - this lot will be just a passing moment in the proud history of our club. So put your prejudices behind you and for the sake of "The Club" get behind the team & manager otherwise you can`t truely call yourself a supporter as you`re either with BRFC or against them! Your club needs you now more than ever so forget about the idiots in Pune & in the board room at Ewood and get behind the team because when it comes down to it that`s all that really matters!

Really not sure about this appointment. More confident in Appleton than I was in Berg but this is still not the man to take this club forward in my opinion. What is done is done. GB and TM, best of luck for tonight, step down on a high.

Best of luck to Appleton, hopefully he has what it takes but as of his Blackpool record I'm doubtful. Anyway, it's done now. Hopefully Venky's will give him the financial backing he will need.

I have always supported our team. As much as I despised Kean I wasnt one who shouted abuse, rather I tried to ignore his presence. I was fully behind Black, Berg and Bowyer and will be Appleton but it doesnt stop me wondering why or how he has got the job. What success has he had? His experience is minimal. If only my kids could get a job without being told they dont have enough experience. As with everything else football is a law unto itself.

Welcome to the club and let's hope Gary finishes with 4 wins from 4. A two and a half year contract? Given Singh said that there would be no new manager till the end of January and then only on an initial 6 month deal with an extension based on performance and targets can only mean that this is a truly historic day in the history of Rovers as Singh is finished. Let us rejoice and get behind the new manager.

I wouldn't be surprised if Venkys thought Michael Appleton is the man that got Blackpool promoted to the premier league just as they didn't know you could be relegated from premier league. Rovers have had 5 men in charge this season and Appleton will take charge of his 3rd club this season. I hope there is soon some consistency and things settle because we have basically lost half a season's start on this push.

Wishing all the luck in the world to Mr Appleton and Mr Westwood.
I hope the boys get something from the game tonight as a thank you to a great job well done to Gary Bowyer and his assistant.
I hope we can keep Gary around at the club for a role as an emergency 'Tony Parkes'. I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't picked up to manage a club soon though. He certainly deserves a crack at managing. I would have liked to have seen him get a longer stint with the first team here. He seemed to be able to motivate the team, when others couldn't and he was good in front of the cameras and press.
Thanks for all your efforts in the last three games.

I really don't understand all your negativity, do you lot actually know anything about football or bother to do any homework on the subject before coming on here and spouting bile. As a Burnley fan I was delighted when you persevered with Steve Keane for so long, and I was quietly optimistic that Berg's tenure would turn out the way it did, however I think you've got one of the best, and most coveted, coaches around in Appleton, he was my choice for the Burnley job, and was interviewed, but we went for Dyche instead. Appleton is held in high regard for his coaching ability by many respected football people, including Roy Hodgson, the trouble is you morons will base your opinion on his win ratio you bothered to look up on Wikipedia without looking into the constraints he was under at Portsmouth.
If he does fail (which as a Claret I hope he does) it will be a combination of your ridiculous owners undermining him and not giving him long enough to turn it around, combined with the moronic faithful (you lot) having a go at him from day one and not giving him a chance.

Keep up the good work ....idiots!

Murphy said after Wolves game that he did not know much about Appleton, will players play for him? Some Blackpool fans stated he is a very ordinary manager. We probably will get many draws now. Venkys never learn.

I heard he likes to play fairly direct and defensively sound at Pompey so I expect the opposite of Kean in that respect. Many clean sheets and wins to come I hope!
you will be getting many draws, some blackpool fans were please to get reportedly £300,000 compensation and stated Appleton is very ordinary manager. Venkys never learn.
Wow, did not know that Karl Oyston was so generous as to split the compensation between the supporters. A mighty fine gesture.

He certainly deserves a crack at managing. I would have liked to have seen him get a longer stint with the first team here. He seemed to be able to motivate the team, when others couldn't and he was good in front of the cameras and press. Thanks for all your efforts in the last three games.
I agree completely we need stability thats why a 30 month contract good luck.

I was listening to the Villa manager earlier, full of praise for the Villa fans, this despite Villa's woeful performances last and this season so far.

(Am I alone in thinking Villa were actually a worse team than Rovers last season?).

Anyway, their fans are behind their team, their players, their club despite their dire position.

Real supporters, Villa fans.

OK things under Venky's are dire, but real Rovers fans will have their say and then get down to Ewood and get behind their team, manager (whoever it is this week) and staff.

Forget the clowns in charge, forget the idiots at BRAG, BRSIT and the rest, who appear to be either totally incompetent or just about capable of raising enough money to buy a dog kennel from Pets at Home.

Rovers like any other team are absolutely nothing without their fans, and in my honest opinion, if you are no longer prepared to get down to Ewood and support them through thick and thin then you no longer have the right to criticise the manager staff and players.

You lost that right when you turned your back on them.

Garry Bowyer stated quite clearly several times that he didn't want the job full time, he isn't stupid, just like Tony Parkes wasn't stupid.

With the idiots in charge, the constant fighting behind the scenes and some of the fans constantly looking of someone, anyone local to blame for everything and anything who can blame him?

We don't know about Appleton yet do we? It's pretty obvious he's Shaw's man which is hopefully the beginning of the end for Shebby, especially if Appleton hits the ground running and we continue to pick up points.

And if Shebby goes the infighting should be over, then perhaps we will start to get some stability back in the club.

A lot supporters seem to be willing to support the Venkeys no matter how many lies ,dirty tricks or whatever they do ,they just keep handing these chicken farmers their money.
It was well understandable that the players and managers head was not on the game last night ,they must be sick too of all the outright lies being told to them.
It seems the only qualification you need is a bald head ,a bad win record and not be loyal to the club.
The word from Blackpool supporters was that he was totaly unsuitable ,Oyston was very happy to lose the guy and get the next managers first year wage paid for by Rovers, if he was so good why could he not equal Holloway's record.
At Portsmouth all he did was pick the same players as he had a very small squad these players were playing out of their skin.
The guy has no loyalty to any club any offer to him and he will be off.
Why has he got a 2 1/2 year deal ,as was stated ,no promotion and he is out.
The only way to let this shower know how the supporters feel is by staying away and not let this shower walk over the supporters.
Those who keep going help to keep Rovers the laughing stock of football.
A lot supporters seem to be willing to support the Venkeys no matter how many lies ,dirty tricks or whatever they do ,they just keep handing these chicken farmers their money. It was well understandable that the players and managers head was not on the game last night ,they must be sick too of all the outright lies being told to them. It seems the only qualification you need is a bald head ,a bad win record and not be loyal to the club. The word from Blackpool supporters was that he was totaly unsuitable ,Oyston was very happy to lose the guy and get the next managers first year wage paid for by Rovers, if he was so good why could he not equal Holloway's record. At Portsmouth all he did was pick the same players as he had a very small squad these players were playing out of their skin. The guy has no loyalty to any club any offer to him and he will be off. Why has he got a 2 1/2 year deal ,as was stated ,no promotion and he is out. The only way to let this shower know how the supporters feel is by staying away and not let this shower walk over the supporters.

Im just a bit scared that if Appleton does well, a footballing giant like..... 'Bournemouth" may come along to lure him away.

Imagine a manager jumping ship to go off to Bournmouth...patheti
