Blackburn Rovers boss Appleton delighted with away performance at Derby

MICHAEL Appleton has hailed an “almost perfect” away day on Saturday as his first win as Blackburn Rovers manager leaves the club just two games away from Wembley.

Goals from Colin Kazim-Richards, Scott Dann and Jordan Rhodes inspired a 3-0 victory at Derby County and set up a last 16 meeting at Arsenal. Appleton, right, is now hoping to capture ‘three or four’ new signings before the close of the transfer window on Thursday – while insisting he is under no pressure to sell anyone.

Manchester City defender Karim Rekik is understood to be of several on his wish-list, while a winger with pace has grown in terms of priorities after Josh King suffered a relapse to his hamstring injury. Appleton is also expecting late interest for a number of his key players, with Scott Dann and Martin Olsson understood to be in demand, but the Rovers boss is confident he will keep his squad together.

He said: “Hopefully it is going to be a good four or five days for us and we can get some new faces in and make sure there is plenty of competition.

“I think Josh’s injury does leave us needing another. People will be expecting that, hopefully it is a fruitful four days for us and we can make sure we get a really competitive squad together. I am sure there will be interest (in his squad) but we are at a point where we want to strengthen the quality of the squad and if players do leave it will be players that myself and the staff are quite happy to let out.”

After an uneventful first half at Pride Park, Kazim-Richards’ 43rd minute opener set up a dominant second half display for the visitors.

“From an away performance point of view it is up there as almost being perfect,” Appleton said.

“The first 20 to 25 minutes were difficult for no other reason than the exploits the players showed on Tuesday night and once we got through that we really looked a threat.

“I don’t think our goal was under threat at any point. We grew stronger in the game and some of our experienced players really came to the fore.

“Jake Kean has had nothing to do at all and that is pleasing. There was a spell when we were 1-0 up when we got a little bit sloppy, but I said to the players you can’t dominate a game for 90 minutes. Everyone will have a spell and sometimes you have to enjoy defending.

“You have to give respect to the opposition and know they will have a spell and you have to enjoy defending, heading, blocking and we did that for four or five minutes and then got back into it.”

appleton, like eric black, quickly highlighted the lack of balance in the squad - with the exception on king neither black nor berg could do much about it.

appleton has a chance in the next four days to do summat about it. let's hope that despite all the backroom clowns that rovers gets its act together and dumps the deadwood and the can't be arsed - and fills the obvious holes in key positions in the team.

i wish you best of luck mr.appleton - its not glory boys we want - its grafters. i am sure you know what you want....let's hope that obstacles are not put in front of you.

Why do they need a new manager to start work hard? Hells bells, the money they are on they shouldn't need outside motivation. I would be ashamed to say what Dann said on the subject.

Appleton has got them playing as a team now and the much improved performances of key players like Scott Dann are a direct result of having a guy in charge who knows how to organise the team and instill some much needed confidence into the squad.

Might be too late in the season and things are far from perfect yet, but there are still a lot of points to play for and with the team performing better and players playing to their full potential then the play-offs are a real target.

Unfortunately for the fans football does not reflect the real world.

Ridiculous salaries for players and managers alike are paid out before a ball is kicked never mind a point gained.

It's hard to accept in these difficult times but we always have the option of going elsewhere for our vicarious thrills.

If Appleton is the man to get the players motivated I, for one, am delighted and look forward to seeing steady progress over the next few months.

Yes, we all know that the Club has wasted two years but now is the time to stop moaning and get behind this manager who speaks in language which fans can relate to and who has obviously grabbed the players' attention.

If a week from now we have a squad of players who put in a full shift and get the fans behind them Appleton will have made a great start.

My thoughts exactly when I read Danns comments. What he actually meant was Kean & Berg let the lazy ba5tards who couldn't be @rsed get away with it because they were weak &happy enough to take their wage with no command from higher up!
Beggers belief that these premaddonas on 30k a week think like that, but they're a bunch of spoilt brats who've had their backsides wiped for them since they were young teenagers. Maybe Appleton has a better work ethic & I believe we still have a few decent players in that squad who under the right guidance can do a job. Noticed an improvement in Lowe against Brighton & Olsson boys looked better. If MA can root out them who really don't give a t0ss & develop the others then maybe there's a glimmer of hope. The last 2 years have been heartbreaking, turning up week after week and apart from an odd flash of brilliance knowing players weren't giving it their all.
Apart from a miracle we can write this season off but maybe just maybe I'll have to admit I was wrong and MA is the right man? I'll do that gladly because along with 99% of Rovers fans I only want what's best for the club. I know we've no divine right for top flight football & what we've achieved in the last 20 years has been nothing short of a miracle, but we are still a prestigious club with a lot of history behind us. If we can earn back the "well respected" tag that owners & managers have lost for us then things could be turning a corner

I'm going to get a kicking for saying this, but I think it would be bad news if, by some miracle, we made it back to the Premiership this season; 1) we're clearly not ready to go back up and 2) it would convince Venky's that they've been right all along!
.
This year we should concentrate on getting a balanced squad together, letting the manager get bedded in and generally consoldating before launching a real assault on promotion in the 2013-2014 season.

I wouldn't shy away from it if we got the chance though. I think the Arsenal cup game will give us a good idea of whether we are ready to go back up. The result will obviously hopefully be a win, but even if we lose as long as the players put the effort in and give everything they've got it will be a great game.

Concentrate on sorting the squad yes, but the squad can only stay together with funds which if we aren't promoted will be in short supply! Promotion is still possible (and looking more and more so if the players can keep up the performances with Appy) and we should push as much as possible to reach it. Here's hoping for a Blackburn v Burnley play-off final!!!

Appleton's honest, common sense approach is so refreshing after more than 2 years of bulls*it from Kean and Singh. Admittedly we should have some appreciation for Shebby in engineeing the removal of Kean, who was to be sacked if he hadn't walked. That could not have been easy given Mrs Desai deemed him unsackable. Shebby though is a victim of his own ego and his current silence, combined with Appy's astute oebservations, is helping our club become credible again. I never thought after 47 years supporting my team through thick and thin that i would become embarrassed to be a Rovers fan, but i have felt that way for almost 2 years due to the Roa's self inflicted damage and the circus we had become. Early days but let's hope we have the right man now in Appleton and maybe Derek Shaw also deserves some credit for his efforts as he has been victim of many negative comments and conspiracy in this paper and all without much foundation or knowledge of the guy. Could this be a turning point? I bl**dy well hope so. I couldn't comprehend how poorly we played against Charlton but I don't count that as a Appy match as he couldn't change Bowyers winning team. The speed with which he has so quickly and accurately assessed the squad weaknesses is so impressive but given the expensive advice the Rao's rely upon, why have we ended up with such poor cover in so many positions. Why was Shebby allowed to sign 3 players, all smacks of dodgy dealings combined with the football naivety of the Rao's. Many people are trying to force Venky's to sell, i would say be careful what you wish for, there are no buyers waiting in the wings who could afford to support a return to the premiership and to keep us there if we made it. It is the Walker Trust and Jack's children who get off very lightly in the criticism stakes, they stopped supporting the club financially and rumoured to have expected an income from the club. That greed and self interest could not have been what Jack would have expected from his family. If the fans continue such embarrassingly public abuse towards the Rao's and get their wish then don't be too surprised if they asset strip our club as they exit and then the legacy of Jack will be lost for ever. Be careful what you wish for...

"1 point in 6 against weak opposition and beat a poor Derby side" Would not consider Brighton to be a weak side, if you look at the league table, and the first game against Charlton was Appleton's first game as manager. A "poor" Derby side were comprehensibly beaten.

Which ever team you support "proper fans" live in hope and expectation that their team will be successful. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not.

Using your "logic" it would appear that Burnley were beaten by a poor Birmingham side, when you consider the way Birmingham are playing and their problems behind the scenes. What does that say about your team?

Concentrate on sorting the squad yes, but the squad can only stay together with funds which if we aren't promoted will be in short supply! Promotion is still possible (and looking more and more so if the players can keep up the performances with Appy) and we should push as much as possible to reach it. Here's hoping for a Blackburn v Burnley play-off final!!!
Blackburn v Burnley play off final would be a real blood and thunder game an amazing atmoshphere.

Can imagine travel arrangements would be a nightmare though, probably have to go in coaches from the ground 3 weeks before kick off, then have to spend two weeks in Guantanamo Bay being water boarded by over zealous stewards, before finally being released to enjoy the game in the comfort of a straight jacket while sipping a lightly gassed mineral water.

Would still go though !!

"poor Derby side" they had lost one of their last 11 home matches. You just lost to Birmingham at home, good one. It's more of a, Burnley managed to pull a string of results together and now they're talking about play-offs? You're the minnows of Lancashire.

How can the Arsenal game give us an idea of whether we are ready to go back up? Do we have to play Arsenal away to know the answer to that? We have been relegated. The season so far has been a disaster. We are on our 5th manager. We are out of automatic promotion already and not in play off places. The FA cup tie is a one off game and the result and performance will be unrelated to our readiness for returning to the PL. Do you think Oldham are ready for the PL because they beat Liverpool? No. That game told their chairman that the players can raise their game for a grandstand game like that but not for the bread and butter games.

which is itself derived from the latin Vincere which means to win or to conquer, and as we have a roman road running through Blackburn I can see why you would think this a traditional Blackburn name.

We need 6 points from the next two home games Bristol City and Ipswich and then lets see where we are.

I still think it would NOT be in our interests to go up this year and to be honest I would like a season where we played some good stuff and deserved promotion via a top two spot rather than fluke it via the playoffs. I know we did it that way in Jacks's days but as we all know we have very different owners now! We all knew and trusted Jack would do the right thing.

Unbelievable some of these comments. You seem to think you have a divine right to be in the Premier League. Truth be told it was a false position and you've now found your level albeit dependent upon Venky's continued support; without this you would no doubt drop further. There are one or two realistic Rovers fans on here but the rest of you appear to be living in some kind of alternate universe where Venky's actually want the best for BRFC. Jack threw money at his project, he bought his success but when the money stopped the decline began. You belong to Venky's now, and things ain't like they used to be.

IThat table gives a false impression of the most successful clubs......for example PNE and Burnley have spent a lot of their recent history in the 3rd & 4th tier of English football and must have collected a few points!

A table of 1st tier and/or 2nd tier results would give a more accurate picture.

I just saw that we are about to lose Kazim Richards?

Bursaspor have put in an offer for Colin Kazim Richards.
The Green Crocodiles have offered Galatasaray €600,000 and Kazim Richards a contract worth €1.2 million per-season on a four year deal.
Kazim Richards agent Neil Fewings confirmed that an agreement is imminent. "We have agreed terms with Bursaspor," said Fewings.
"Colin will sign for the club on Wednesday."

Anton Ferdinand and Kazim Richards are expected to be unveiled in a joint signing ceremony on Wednesday.

Kazim Richards is currently on loan at Blackburn Rovers, the Turkish international has scored three goals and has three assists for the Championship side this season.

Good money for him for sure and no way would he or his club turn that down. Just hope Leon Best is fit quickly or we get Marlon King the Burnley slayer in.

If Kazim does leave, it's a blow unless there is someone lined up. Personally Marlon King would do a good job and it's especially more likely to happen as he is available on a free. Also would be useful in the event that Best get's re-injured on his return.

The last name we were apparently looking to sign was Rekik at Man City, and that rumour hasn't faded. He's a left back, so that would suggest Martin Olsson will be pushed into the midfield.

Oh ars* tickler, you don't half spew a load of b0llox from that keyboard of yours! Of course Jack's money bought the title! Hello! So has Abramovich's, Sheik Mansour's etc etc, need I go on?

How many coaches would that take. What a headache that would give the London met. Good job it isn't going to happen.

Appleton's honest, common sense approach is so refreshing after more than 2 years of bulls*it from Kean and Singh. Admittedly we should have some appreciation for Shebby in engineeing the removal of Kean, who was to be sacked if he hadn't walked. That could not have been easy given Mrs Desai deemed him unsackable. Shebby though is a victim of his own ego and his current silence, combined with Appy's astute oebservations, is helping our club become credible again. I never thought after 47 years supporting my team through thick and thin that i would become embarrassed to be a Rovers fan, but i have felt that way for almost 2 years due to the Roa's self inflicted damage and the circus we had become. Early days but let's hope we have the right man now in Appleton and maybe Derek Shaw also deserves some credit for his efforts as he has been victim of many negative comments and conspiracy in this paper and all without much foundation or knowledge of the guy. Could this be a turning point? I bl**dy well hope so. I couldn't comprehend how poorly we played against Charlton but I don't count that as a Appy match as he couldn't change Bowyers winning team. The speed with which he has so quickly and accurately assessed the squad weaknesses is so impressive but given the expensive advice the Rao's rely upon, why have we ended up with such poor cover in so many positions. Why was Shebby allowed to sign 3 players, all smacks of dodgy dealings combined with the football naivety of the Rao's. Many people are trying to force Venky's to sell, i would say be careful what you wish for, there are no buyers waiting in the wings who could afford to support a return to the premiership and to keep us there if we made it. It is the Walker Trust and Jack's children who get off very lightly in the criticism stakes, they stopped supporting the club financially and rumoured to have expected an income from the club. That greed and self interest could not have been what Jack would have expected from his family. If the fans continue such embarrassingly public abuse towards the Rao's and get their wish then don't be too surprised if they asset strip our club as they exit and then the legacy of Jack will be lost for ever. Be careful what you wish for...
A fair post IMO. Things seem to be moving in the right direction, the jack walker era was great, there will never be any love for venky's, but given the right direction they might turn this round and be respected, which I think is all they want.

Time will tell, and lets not forget its early doors, but I have faith.

My team is the Rovers and they are for life.
I 'learnt' many years ago that when you support your home town team then that means you support them through bad times as well as good times. And being a Rover for as long as I have then the bad outweighs the good by quite a bit (even with the prem years in there) but hey I still support my Rovers.

Its called desperation, and the BRAGarts are full of it at the moment.

The in-Action Group seems to think its supporting the majority of the fan base and as such wants to continue staging its protests against Venky's in our name.

Hey BRAG? give it up and get back to supporting. You were worth a look in when Keano was in his hay days (neigh!) but now you're just a lost group searching for a cause,

Never should have got into bed with Singh Mr Mullan. How the mighty have thus fallen.

There has never been anything to learn from any scanky manc anyhow.[/p][/quote]Well said , although i have not been to ewood for 15 years due to living out of the country , i used to watch through the 60s and seventies and the fans then used to moan every match almost and at the end of the match i would always remember coming of the games always at ewood and usually raining , that's it i you will not see me here again , but come saturday at 3 0 clock there they where with thier blue and white scarf and flask cheering us on through the bad times, as for the Manchester rover , i think you may have to many red and white glory hunting friends? speedie_rovers_legend

Unbelievable some of these comments. You seem to think you have a divine right to be in the Premier League. Truth be told it was a false position and you've now found your level albeit dependent upon Venky's continued support; without this you would no doubt drop further. There are one or two realistic Rovers fans on here but the rest of you appear to be living in some kind of alternate universe where Venky's actually want the best for BRFC. Jack threw money at his project, he bought his success but when the money stopped the decline began. You belong to Venky's now, and things ain't like they used to be.
In an all time list of English football's most decorated clubs Blackburn Rovers lie comforatably in the top ten. Take away the Jack Walker era and were still up there. It seems that a lack of football knowledge is a speciality of yours.

All time league table;

10. Burnley 113 seasons 4614 games 4673 points
13. Blackburn Rovers 113 seasons 4488 games 4594 points

Just a minute, why have Burnley played 126 games more than Rovers?

And don't forget quite a few of those games were in the 4th division; a pleasure we have yet to experience.

79 points behind with 126 games in hand - I think even we could manage that, don't you? Venkys or not. Highly unlikely we'll ever have the opportunity to make them up though. Hey ho.

Lies, d@mn lies and statistics, my friend.

And you have the nerve to accuse US of being deluded. Bitter irony and desperation remain rife at t'other end o' th'M65

Just to bore you with more irrelevant statistics from that table;

26. Barnsley 4416 4291
27. Chelsea 3918 4244
28. Lincoln City 4376 4222

Lincoln hot on the heels of Chelsea who themselves are chasing Barnsley. Chelsea do of course have about 13 seasons in hand, give or take.

I think some weighting on the points is needed, premier/1st div points the same as lower league points?

Small minded deluded dingle. 18 years out of 20 as a PL team, winning it, a league cup win, 2 FA cup semis, 7 seasons in Europe and he calls that a false position. 12 years of that 18 we weren't propped up by Jack Walker or his money, we stood alone with good leadership, good managers and good players. What did his beloved sh1te-hawks do in those 20 years? Promotion out the old 4th , 3rd and 2nd divisions, a disastrous single season in PL via a scabby playoff win. Numerous managers who p1ssed off when they smelt a few bob. No wins against their superior neighbours, no cup runs to speak of, no European games & constantly selling off half decent players to line the owners pockets. No wonder their jealousy runs deeper than the gulf in class between us!

And then I politely remind them where they currently sit - in the Championship 5 points below Burnley with a set of Indian cowboys destroying their 'once proud' club. Then they pipe down for a bit.

How foolish,I am from Blackburn(Irvine Place)I have been working in various locations in the UK over a number of years- I now live in Manky land through my job..
I have continually defended Rovers against Prejudiced City/United Fans in the Walker era and later... I criticised the Walker Trust years ago of the total disregard to' Jack Walkers Rovers' in this comment medium.......
Now the Venky's are here and no more can I feel part of the club as they have (as you know) screwed the club and continue to do it..I won't be a part of it ..Yes, I go to Gary Filtcroft's Chorley instead... The trouble is that after one win or so I see people like you being carried away when in reality the situation is much different!!! I still see the pro Venky comments and think.....What Idiots...Perhaps you might apologise for your utter stupid outburst..

Good money for him for sure and no way would he or his club turn that down. Just hope Leon Best is fit quickly or we get Marlon King the Burnley slayer in.[/p][/quote]When are you going to learn????[/p][/quote]Learn what manc? How to slag my team off in three easy lessons? Sorry can't do it. My team is the Rovers and they are for life. I 'learnt' many years ago that when you support your home town team then that means you support them through bad times as well as good times. And being a Rover for as long as I have then the bad outweighs the good by quite a bit (even with the prem years in there) but hey I still support my Rovers. There has never been anything to learn from any scanky manc anyhow.[/p][/quote]How foolish,I am from Blackburn(Irvine Place)I have been working in various locations in the UK over a number of years- I now live in Manky land through my job.. I have continually defended Rovers against Prejudiced City/United Fans in the Walker era and later... I criticised the Walker Trust years ago of the total disregard to' Jack Walkers Rovers' in this comment medium....... Now the Venky's are here and no more can I feel part of the club as they have (as you know) screwed the club and continue to do it..I won't be a part of it ..Yes, I go to Gary Filtcroft's Chorley instead... The trouble is that after one win or so I see people like you being carried away when in reality the situation is much different!!! I still see the pro Venky comments and think.....What Idiots...Perhaps you might apologise for your utter stupid outburst.. roverinmanchstr

It's only a bit of fun. I like to poke the limp-wristed slack-jawed village idiots on here then step back and watch them foam at the mouth for the next few hours rattling away on wikipedia for stats to prove their divine right to the Premier League and absolute dominance over the Clarets.

And then I politely remind them where they currently sit - in the Championship 5 points below Burnley with a set of Indian cowboys destroying their 'once proud' club. Then they pipe down for a bit.

Lice ridden, bath dodging, horse fiddling, laughing stock of English football, shameless Rovers filth.
Apologies for the late reply, I've been at work. Did you reply during your lunch hour?

I am heartened by your passive acceptance of our 'absolute' dominance over you.

I am also pi$$ing myself laughing that in 34 years you have only managed fleeting occasions over us. Once in the early weeks of the ONLY season you spent in the Premier League and now, just as we're getting to the business end of a Championship season that will once more see bonleh fade like a cheap blouse and Rovers charge onwards and upwards toward more of that success that we've tasted in EACH of the last three centuries.

Candy - Baby - you do the rest....
