Would it be too much to ask that you list the team as they line-up in whatever formation has been chosen? Is it King or Rochina playing behind Rhodes? Is Vukcevic starting on the left or right? Are we playing 442, 4411, 451 or 433?

I'll figure it out for myself once they're out on the pitch but not everyone can get to the game and these details give the fans a clue as to what to expect from the team.

Senior players on higher salaries moved to beds next to door. Once again, accountants in Pune picking the team. A repeat of last season is definitely on the cards.

Etuhu and Pederson are slow and ineffective, Pederson is ok as sub. right decision to leave them out. In this division you need players who are fast and fight for ball as other teams are well organised and hard working. Pederson himself agrees he cannot tract back like he could a few years ago.

Interesting to see that we have two yellow cards in the first half. We must be top of the league for sporting behaviour. Maybe the two yellows is a good sign of fight and spirit???

It's not a question of Singh being brave enough to face the fans. He is so stupid,deluded and arrogant that he actually believes that he is the Messiah. Shaw and Agnew need to give the owners an ultimatum. It's him or THEM.

On my way back, and all I can say to that dingle's comment is:

Shaw and Agnew are Keans appointments, they need to go and williams needs to be recruited if possible.

Ridiculous comment! Firstly, the appointment of Shaw and Agnew had nothing to do with Steve Kean. Secondly, why would Williams return to work for Venky's when it was their ineptitude and arrogance that led him to leave in he first place?

Blackburn Rovers - Another Inexperienced Manager

Blackburn appoint another unknown manager to the role
Blackburn Rovers have appointed unknown manager Stephen Gibbs to the role until the end of the season. Gibbs is relatively unknown to football due to him not having any managerial experience. Gibbs holds UEFA A License coaching badges but has never managed a club. Shebby Singh has announced that Gibbs will have Dutch legend Johan Cruyff as his assistant. Singh added; ''With an experienced person as his assistant he shouldn't have any trouble. He is a world-class coach who's expertees can be used for the remainder of the season. Stephen may be inexperienced but he shows passion and has the knowledge on what to do to help the club. He knows what to do and he has promised promotion to be the minimum qualification this season. We will hold a formal press conference later but Stephen is busy meeting his players for the benefit of the club.
