Appleton's imminent appointment causes Ewood conflict

MICHAEL Appleton looks set to be appointed Blackburn Rovers’ new manager today – despite a late rally of support for caretaker boss Gary Bowyer from senior players.

The Lancashire Telegraph understands several of Rovers’ first team squad urged the club’s hierarchy to give temporary duo Bowyer and Terry McPhillips longer at the helm, but their advice has been ignored by some quarters.

Appleton’s switch – and that of assistant Ashley Westwood – would come two months after being appointed Blackpool boss from Portsmouth, with members of Rovers’ squad adamant Bowyer deserved the chance to continue .

The caretaker boss has guided the team to three consecutive wins – following a dismal run under Henning Berg – but is now likely to be in the dug out for the last time for the trip to Wolves this evening.

After a day of compensation talks, Blackpool gave Rovers permission to speak to Appleton yesterday evening – following Wednesday’s late night approach – with Ewood directors expecting to be able to unveil his appointment today after talks.

Mixed messages were coming from the club though with sources close to global advisor Shebby Singh telling the Lancashire Telegraph he believed Bowyer would continue in the hot seat for the next couple of weeks at least – at the request of owners Venky’s.

Singh has been involved in a power struggle with managing director Derek Shaw and operations director Paul Agnew for most of the season, with the latter duo responsible for interest in Appleton.

Appleton yesterday said his farewells to staff at Bloomfield Road - after compensation was agreed - and it would be a remarkable turnaround should he not be appointed Rovers boss now.

His arrival would also call into question the controversial Singh’s future at the club, with Shaw and Agnew having already flown to India to voice their concerns about his role to the owners.

All three declined to comment on the managerial situation when contacted by the Lancashire Telegraph last night, although Singh did say: “We are searching for stability and we have found that over the past couple of weeks. Long may it continue.”

Singh was in the dark about Rovers’ approach for Appleton, who was known by Shaw from Preston connections, and believes a more experienced manager would be beneficial for the club.

Shaw’s efforts to land Appleton, 37, come a little more than a week after he helped produce a statement announcing Bowyer and McPhillips would be in the temporary hot seat until at least the end of the month.

Several of Rovers’ players believe Bowyer deserved longer in the reigns and are even understood to have expressed their thoughts to club directors.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards last night tweeted: “I hope to god we make it four in four for Gaz and his team.

“To let you know whoever is in charge my priority is the same #Promotion, but I have to say playing under Gaz after the last has been fresh air.

“I'm not talking any manager in particular, I'm just saying that this is the best run we've had this season something's going right.”

Appleton is understand to have grown frustrated at a lack of support in the transfer market at Bloomfield Road, leaving him ready to join Rovers after just two months at the helm at Bloomfield.

He previously enjoyed a caretaker management role at West Brom, before taking charge of crisis club Portsmouth.

I was gong to say something similar.

Reading between the lines and in all honesty that's all any of us can do, this appears to be Shaw and Agnew getting one up on Shebby, which can't be a bad thing even if it is nothing short of crass stupidity at the top as usual.

In my opinion not the right person for the job but at the end of the day we do need a manager and nothing that has gone on at Ewood over the last two years or so is his fault.

It looks like the team will be playing for GB tonight and a point or three will give him a good base to work from

Then it's up to him, and I honestly wish him all the luck in the world, after all Venky's have to have an accident and get something right once, don't they?

Clowns running the club above him, boo boys and doomsayers will be on his back after the first mistake, not a job I would like unless there is yet another very good compensation package attached.

I agree it is a strange move but those on here saying "Appleton out" need to have a look at themselves. He hasn't even been confimed as being "in" yet.

Bowyer was a temporary manager, has done a good job and hopefully another three points tonight, but we need a definite manager that can formulate a squad using this transfer window and Appleton seems like a person who knows the division, is young and ambitious, and is worth a try. Obviously he made himself available having been cheesed off by the lack of ambition shown at Blackpool and lets face it if you had to choose between Blackpool and The Oyston's or Blackburn and the Venkys' there is not much to differentiate them except one lives locally and one doesn't....but and this is a big but Blackburn Rovers are a bigger club with the potential if only we could sort out the in house politics.

I support the move as a step in the right direction. Good luck Michael you have my support but you have to deliver more than your predecessors and quickly!!!!

All this moaning is a joke, it feels like I'm on the dingles page!
Who is to say GB wanted the job full time anyway?

If we are going to get a new manager I would rather we do it know so the new manager has at least 2 weeks of the transfer window to look to bring their own players in rather than appoint him at the end of Jan when he is stuck with the squad, like Berg was!

Appleton might not be my first choice but if he is the man the club want then at least they have for once moved fast and got him in as soon as possible with time to mould the squad in the way he wants before the window shuts.

I live in Blackpool, and their fans aren't that bothered however the one thing they all agree is that the Blackpool team under Appleton is much fitter than it was under Olly and more organised defensively! 2 things that the Rovers team are seriously lacking.

i used to be proud to be associated with a group of fans that were loyal and passionate but despite that we didnt get above our station,we inthe main remembered that we are a small lancashire club froma traditional lancashire mill town, and were very appreciative of any success that came our way no matter how big or small or who brought us that success. What has changed? all of a sudden there seems to be a larg section of fans demanding "big name mangers" and things of such like. Now look, i 100%agree that the running of the club is absoloutley shambolic at the moment and it needs sorting sooner rather than later, and the only solution i can see is for venkys to sell up and leave. And aiming our venom and vitriol at them is deserved. But why are we aiming it at potential managers??
Someone tell me what appleton has ever done wrong to this club, someone tell me why appleton cant be a success, someone tell me why a once proud bunch of supporters will no longer give anyone a fair crack of the whip? i seem to remeber similar whinings and rantings when allardyce was linked with the job, sorry to see him leave in the end!! all i am saying is, for christ sake lets give appleton a bloody chance, throw your weigt behind him and the team and who knows,fine if he turns out to be useless, let him have it, but at least let him prove or disprove himself!! we have no given right to "an experienced manger" and the bigger names we have been linked with you havnt bloody wanted anyhow....lets just give him a feckin chance....
Hi Burger,
Whilst we have Shaggy and Hendry on the books you are going to get agitated posts in here, one lies through his teeth and the other is on £8000 a week for doing Sweet FA, is it any wonderful we don't just talk about football any more?

Hendry, pension robber out!

Lets talk about 11 against 11 playing football please, to do this we need to rid this club of thes two ASAP

The Team GB was ever only a temporary thing Darener, a lot of people forget that point, and though it is really great to get 3 wins on the bounce, do you think the fans would have been calling for GB to get longer in the role if the three wins had been draws or defeats?

I think the optimism you mention should still be high for tonight's match, if the players can raise their game and play for GB and enjoy their football like they did for three games - then we should expect a good game again tonight. A point tonight at Wolves would be a good result whoever is in charge. Its all about the club and not individuals and Rovers were always going to appoint a manager before the end of this month so give the new guy a chance. He is very well thought of in football and can come in and carry-on what GB and team have started.

Mr Appleton needs to be given a chance, calling for his head is an absolute joke! He may not be the most experienced or the best out there, but he has alot more experience than either Kean or Berg had, and more than GB who by all accounts does not want the job anyway. Give the man a chance. He has alot of good reviews as a coach by some highly respected people in the game. He plays direct football to get results which is what we need to get out of this league. If he can motivate the players we might have a shot still at the play offs.

Who is to say GB wanted the job full time anyway?

If we are going to get a new manager I would rather we do it know so the new manager has at least 2 weeks of the transfer window to look to bring their own players in rather than appoint him at the end of Jan when he is stuck with the squad, like Berg was!

Appleton might not be my first choice but if he is the man the club want then at least they have for once moved fast and got him in as soon as possible with time to mould the squad in the way he wants before the window shuts.

I live in Blackpool, and their fans aren't that bothered however the one thing they all agree is that the Blackpool team under Appleton is much fitter than it was under Olly and more organised defensively! 2 things that the Rovers team are seriously lacking.
Why do people keep going on about the "Transfer window"... Venkys aren't going to spend anything.

Hi Burger,
Whilst we have Shaggy and Hendry on the books you are going to get agitated posts in here, one lies through his teeth and the other is on £8000 a week for doing Sweet FA, is it any wonderful we don't just talk about football any more?

Hendry, pension robber out!

Singh, expert at verbal diroreh out!

Lets talk about 11 against 11 playing football please, to do this we need to rid this club of thes two ASAP
Shabby Singh calls himself a "FOOTBALL PUNDIT"

Colin Hendry use to call himself a "FOOTBALL PUNDIT" when he worked for ESPN doing the Scottish football , the Scottish people read the newspapers and the stories about his swindling the pensioners and ESPN sacked him ,the comments when they sacked Hendry was " Hendry has had too much negative publicity and ESPN do not want to damage their reputation ,hiring a man of such disrepute " .

I agree it is a strange move but those on here saying "Appleton out" need to have a look at themselves. He hasn't even been confimed as being "in" yet.

Bowyer was a temporary manager, has done a good job and hopefully another three points tonight, but we need a definite manager that can formulate a squad using this transfer window and Appleton seems like a person who knows the division, is young and ambitious, and is worth a try. Obviously he made himself available having been cheesed off by the lack of ambition shown at Blackpool and lets face it if you had to choose between Blackpool and The Oyston's or Blackburn and the Venkys' there is not much to differentiate them except one lives locally and one doesn't....but and this is a big but Blackburn Rovers are a bigger club with the potential if only we could sort out the in house politics.

I support the move as a step in the right direction. Good luck Michael you have my support but you have to deliver more than your predecessors and quickly!!!!
Exactly... my thoughts are the same. Bowyer has done a brilliant job... but he's a youth team chap and we need good youth players to keep developing via our Academy and Reserves with Bowyer in charge.

Just remember how Tony Parkes did - he was fantastic as caretaker, each time he did it he turned our results around and had us playing as a team. But as soon as he was given the job on a permanent basis it started to unravel VERY quickly ultimately resulting in him stepping down (very graciously) and back into his former role. We wouldn't be so lucky with Bowyer, we would end up losing him for good and he's too valuable for that.

How much longer can this go on? Surely the FA need to step in and look into how our club is being run? Things are clearly not being run in the correct manner.

Some fans when Berg was appointed where slagging him off about his previous record with other clubs, well just to inform you all....Appletons record: 2 wins in 12, 8 Draws! Results speak for themselves and in my eyes that is just not good enough.

Appletons appointment (if it happens) is because Shaw and Agnew know him and will have an ally against Shebby.

Blackburn Rovers was once, one of the best run clubs around! Now it is being run into the ground.

Obviously not a full shilling. You're right, our club is in a mess, hence the moaning you thick sh1t.

What would happen if foreign owners were sad enough to want to buy Bonleh FC and turned out to be another Venkys or just as disgusting owners? Would all you slavering tobacco chewing banjo players sit back and do nothing? I very much doubt it.
That's exactly right, we wouldn't take it, we'd have chased these clowns out of town long before now, by whatever means necessary. But you lot just keep taking it, you get slapped down and yet come straight back for more, some of you are still convinced that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that a sensible decision will be made, that a big name manager will rescue Blackburn Rovers and guide you back 'where you belong'.

And unfortunately for you the Venky's are going nowhere so strap yourselves in the fun has only just started.

Enough is enough.This appointment is the final straw. It just contradicts everything that has been fed to us from the goons within Ewood, since Berg was sacked. We are being LIED to on a daily basis.

If MA is the best that we can do, then there is no hope. This is the final insult, and possibly the final nail in our coffin.

Stop telling us not to be disappointed by the hiring of yet another "manager" with a dreadful record of failure and inexperience.

The old boys network is alive and well at ewood they are all lining their own pockets as well as their friends. Rotten to the core.

I can guarantee that Appleton will not be a success. He has no real experience, the fans and players don't want him and he does not have the kudos to attract players. I pray to god I am proved wrong but I doubt it.
He is another tumour created by the Venky cancer.

The club continues to slide into oblivion and transparent fifth columnists like you 1952 post on here trying to appease us. Well Mr Shaw we are not stupid. I just wish I hadn't renewed my ST now.

The level of hatred I feel for them all is beyond description.

He has no real experience, the fans and players don't want him and he does not have the kudos to attract players. I pray to god I am proved wrong but I doubt it. He is another tumour created by the Venky cancer. The club continues to slide into oblivion and transparent fifth columnists like you 1952 post on here trying to appease us. Well Mr Shaw we are not stupid. I just wish I hadn't renewed my ST now. The level of hatred I feel for them all is beyond description.[/p][/quote]Completely agree, looks like Shaw is trying to put one over Shebby before Shebby comes up with someone. Get an experience manager who can deal with players,fans etc and has some good tactical knowhow. moh

The Team GB was ever only a temporary thing Darener, a lot of people forget that point, and though it is really great to get 3 wins on the bounce, do you think the fans would have been calling for GB to get longer in the role if the three wins had been draws or defeats?

I think the optimism you mention should still be high for tonight's match, if the players can raise their game and play for GB and enjoy their football like they did for three games - then we should expect a good game again tonight. A point tonight at Wolves would be a good result whoever is in charge. Its all about the club and not individuals and Rovers were always going to appoint a manager before the end of this month so give the new guy a chance. He is very well thought of in football and can come in and carry-on what GB and team have started.

Fanny tickler, for once I agree with you.

You've hit the nail right on the head with some of these supporters with rose tinted specs.
I agree too. I cant believe how many times fans say 'oh well we need to get behind them' and 'you never know, he might be the man' How many lessons do some people need in recognizing incompetence and wrangling behind the scenes most of which is nothing to do with football? Venkys must think theyve fallen on their feet with the way so many fans take everything they throw at us.
The Vermin in India are taking fans for MUGS, and some of them still can't see it. Some fans will never learn. Loyalty is one thing, BLIND loyalty is entirely different. Just how many times will fans turn a blind eye, and put up with being shafted on an almost daily basis?

Enough is enough.This appointment is the final straw. It just contradicts everything that has been fed to us from the goons within Ewood, since Berg was sacked. We are being LIED to on a daily basis.

If MA is the best that we can do, then there is no hope. This is the final insult, and possibly the final nail in our coffin.

Come on guys there is far too much negativity on here today. Yes GB has done well and I hope we can keep him but be honest he would not have been allowed to make significant decisions without Shebby and the wheels would have dropped off ultimately. Appleton is different and if we get behind him we will be successful and he will not put up with interference from people who know little or nothing about football. Personally I am hugely optimistic that this guy wlll turn it round for us. Good luck to the guy and get behind him.
A win tonight would be good but I think a draw is as good as we can hope for.

Nothing strange about the appointment or the last with these 3 clowns. Singh tried the "lets get an old favourite back" that doesn't work so the other 2 try "someone we know". It beggars belief and leaves most honest decent hard working people speechless, that 3 half wits like this have positions (and salaries) like this. I'm not surprised though, the whole football industry is rotten to the core with bungs, pay offs, bonuses and payment for failure. Unfortunately we've assembled the worst elements through incompetent ownership.
One lie after another, what do you expect though? I was warned by a relative , a lifelong PNE fan about Shaw. As bent as a nine bob note, was his concise description.

We have 3 wins on the bounce for the first time in 4 years, and the next 5 games all look winnable for a team in form and playing with confidence.

We say GB has the job until the end of the month and the next guy will get a six month contract and see what happens.

We then rush to a rival club and pay them compensation to take a relatively new manager with a poor track record and give him a two and a half year contract !

Will there be a press conference ?
Who will be there ?
Will anybody ask "WHY ARE YOU BEHAVING THIS WAY ?"

The pre and post match interviews with last 3 games have been a breath of fresh air and sanity. GB has done a great job. However,there is a big difference between a short term crisis manager and a long term manager who has to set up a structure to achieve the long term objective and motivate staff, players and fans. I don't know enough about GB or MA to know whether they are capable of doing the job. Some of GB's comments have suggested that he is happier working behind the scenes. MA is clearly an ambitious young manger and wants a front man job. Whatever happens let's get behind them and not have any of the "I'm only happy when I'm angry and moaning" of the last 2 years.

Yeah sure we will. The third novice manager in as many months. What makes you (Mr positive ) so sure that it will work this time.

It's like a production line of no marks trying to make a name for themselves at Rovers expense, with the 'positive' nodding dogs in the stands who can't tell their a*** from their elbow as far as a decent manager is concerned.
And then there is folkks like you, holding aloft his NEXT MANAGER OUT BANNER
Who was it not many weeks ago doing the most shouting for an "experienced" manager when Kean was sacked ( Grayson, Holloway )?

You may not agree with my views that's fine by me, but at least try to be consistent.

I keep hearing this guy Mullen on the radio and Wild being mentioned threatening that Rovers fans will not be happy with Appleton's appointment.

I know they probably have the club at heart but now is a time for uniting behind this appointment. Mullen and Wild do not run the club, if they have the millions required to buy the club then please do so, I am sure they would do better than Venkys unfortunately they don't and won't ever get it from the fans and unfortunately again Venkys do not wish to sell.

So we are about to appoint a young new manager who has experience, we are not privy to the budget allowed for this transaction, we are not aware of the parameters put in place by Venkys, we can moan and moan but it gets us nowhere unless as previously stated you have a spare 20 to 30 million stashed away and you are prepared to back it up with more money. Get real folks with or without Venkys we are stuck in an unenviable position where we do not cover our costs and therefore need outside finance to keep the club afloat....be very careful what you wish for.

The only way out is through success on the field let's just hope for three points tonight and then Appleton can start with two home wins on the bounce to take us to the edge of the playoffs....there isn't it good to be positive. Cup half full or half empty springs to mind with many comments on here.

Yes 3 wins is 3 wins but I feel we would have won them anyway.
I agree we should have won these games anyway. This could be just a purple patch. We have not been great anyway. Also he doesn't have the nerve to substitute murphy. He wasn't great against Bristol city. Is gb experienced in the championship? He is just as inexperienced as kean was.

The Team GB was ever only a temporary thing Darener, a lot of people forget that point, and though it is really great to get 3 wins on the bounce, do you think the fans would have been calling for GB to get longer in the role if the three wins had been draws or defeats?

I think the optimism you mention should still be high for tonight's match, if the players can raise their game and play for GB and enjoy their football like they did for three games - then we should expect a good game again tonight. A point tonight at Wolves would be a good result whoever is in charge. Its all about the club and not individuals and Rovers were always going to appoint a manager before the end of this month so give the new guy a chance. He is very well thought of in football and can come in and carry-on what GB and team have started.
your post frenchy is very similar to the one when berg arrived look what happened then!!!!!!!!!!!!!
at least I am consistent Benali.....compared to some on here anyway

It isn't mine nor any fans decision who is appointed by the club - but within reason I am prepared to give anyone who is appointed a fair chance. Including this chap.

Appleton knows full well what he is coming in to, he will be totally clued-up on the Venky's and all the things that have happened since they arrived and he will be aware of what happened with Berg - so it is surely a case of coming in 'with eyes wide-open' for him.

If he thinks he can cope with all that goes with this job these days and still manage to get us some success - cos he knows the penalty for failure - then fair play to the chap. It is a big move - lets hope he is a big enough man to do the job. I think he is - but only time will tell.

As I continually say,you cannot understand what is happening at Rovers if you start from the premise that it has anything to do with football, it's been about money only from day one. Venkys were sold a pup believing they could enhance Venkys image and make money from the Premiership. All strategies, nurseries, Europe, breakthrough in India were ill-conceived and ill-advised.
Now it is clear to the blind eyed beggar in the main street in Pune that there is no money to be made at Rovers and we are not going to bounce back, so it's all about an exit strategy.
In that respect, Applestrudel is a good appointment, he has experience at Pompey in a club going down the tubes. He'll make no trouble for Venkys and probably be mean enough to ignore any sulks among existing staff.
Pity the poor saps who have been doing OK as temps - they were told they'd got till the end of the month and a week later they're relegated behind Applestrudel and his oppo.
As dear old Karl Marx said "History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce"

Obviously not a full shilling. You're right, our club is in a mess, hence the moaning you thick sh1t.

What would happen if foreign owners were sad enough to want to buy Bonleh FC and turned out to be another Venkys or just as disgusting owners? Would all you slavering tobacco chewing banjo players sit back and do nothing? I very much doubt it.
That's exactly right, we wouldn't take it, we'd have chased these clowns out of town long before now, by whatever means necessary. But you lot just keep taking it, you get slapped down and yet come straight back for more, some of you are still convinced that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that a sensible decision will be made, that a big name manager will rescue Blackburn Rovers and guide you back 'where you belong'. BRAG? What a joke. The 'fans' of BRFC are sitting back and doing nothing while their 'once proud' club is systematically bummed into submission by Indian Chicken farmers. And unfortunately for you the Venky's are going nowhere so strap yourselves in the fun has only just started.
Fanny tickler, for once I agree with you.

You've hit the nail right on the head with some of these supporters with rose tinted specs.
I agree too. I cant believe how many times fans say 'oh well we need to get behind them' and 'you never know, he might be the man' How many lessons do some people need in recognizing incompetence and wrangling behind the scenes most of which is nothing to do with football? Venkys must think theyve fallen on their feet with the way so many fans take everything they throw at us.
The Vermin in India are taking fans for MUGS, and some of them still can't see it. Some fans will never learn. Loyalty is one thing, BLIND loyalty is entirely different. Just how many times will fans turn a blind eye, and put up with being shafted on an almost daily basis?

Enough is enough.This appointment is the final straw. It just contradicts everything that has been fed to us from the goons within Ewood, since Berg was sacked. We are being LIED to on a daily basis.

If MA is the best that we can do, then there is no hope. This is the final insult, and possibly the final nail in our coffin.

BRFC: Made in Blackburn by decent, honest, hard working and honourable people. DESTROYED in India, by SCUM.
I THINK YOU ARE BEING DISRESPECFUL TO VERMIN AND SCUM but you have hit the nail on the head wIth your blind loyalty quote!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Football is a business . If you go to a restaurant and they serve bad food, what do you do ? Maybe give them a second chance but more likely you go elsewhere. Football is no different. If your club is not giving you what you want then you simply stop attending and spending your hard earned money. You continue being a supporter but you stay away until things change. It`s as simple as that. Don`t whinge or whine just vote with your feet. In the meantime it is a huge Claret welcome to Granny Smith.
What a load of b01l0cks fanny.

You'd have chased em out of town?

No you wouldn't.

These w4nkers are based thousands of miles away. They don't give two sh1ts about the supporters.

You'd do exactly what we've done.
There'd be dingles who'd boycott, there'd be those who'd pick and chose games, there'd be some that renew ST's and carry on like nothings changed because they will support through thick and thin.
You lot would be falling out with each other EXACTLY like Rovers fans have done.
Don't make out Bonlehs some righteous club that wouldn't stand for it. Money talks and the facts are no matter what club or supporter, the owners and money men call the shots and there is f*ck all can be done unless absolutely every single fan without fail unites and has complete and utter mass boycott until the owners sell up, which could take months and months and would therefore be almost impossible to implement.

When we boycott, we're all glory hunters.
When we protest, we're all whingers.
If we had 20,000 every other week (like last time we were in this division) we'd be fools for lining Venkys pockets.

Dammed if we do - dammed if we don't.

A win tonight would fab start for him and the team but as a few have already stated the last few games were against very poor teams and after H Bergs sad 10 games in charge it was odds on we would get a few points from the lower teams.As i said when H.Berg took over i wish you the best of luck M,Appleton because working for this shower of sh*t you are going to need it,good luck.

You are actually right. It would be no different down the road. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place. The fans always cop for the most criticism unfortunately. Why everybody else expects the fans to behave in the most perfect and appropriate way in response to Venkys and co I'm not sure.

You know I'm right. Get behind your club and stop the moaning[/p][/quote]What a total mess your club is in...... moan moan moan moan Obviously not a full shilling. You're right, our club is in a mess, hence the moaning you thick sh1t. What would happen if foreign owners were sad enough to want to buy Bonleh FC and turned out to be another Venkys or just as disgusting owners? Would all you slavering tobacco chewing banjo players sit back and do nothing? I very much doubt it.[/p][/quote]That's exactly right, we wouldn't take it, we'd have chased these clowns out of town long before now, by whatever means necessary. But you lot just keep taking it, you get slapped down and yet come straight back for more, some of you are still convinced that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that a sensible decision will be made, that a big name manager will rescue Blackburn Rovers and guide you back 'where you belong'. BRAG? What a joke. The 'fans' of BRFC are sitting back and doing nothing while their 'once proud' club is systematically bummed into submission by Indian Chicken farmers. And unfortunately for you the Venky's are going nowhere so strap yourselves in the fun has only just started.[/p][/quote]Fanny tickler, for once I agree with you. You've hit the nail right on the head with some of these supporters with rose tinted specs.[/p][/quote]I agree too. I cant believe how many times fans say 'oh well we need to get behind them' and 'you never know, he might be the man' How many lessons do some people need in recognizing incompetence and wrangling behind the scenes most of which is nothing to do with football? Venkys must think theyve fallen on their feet with the way so many fans take everything they throw at us.[/p][/quote]The Vermin in India are taking fans for MUGS, and some of them still can't see it. Some fans will never learn. Loyalty is one thing, BLIND loyalty is entirely different. Just how many times will fans turn a blind eye, and put up with being shafted on an almost daily basis? Enough is enough.This appointment is the final straw. It just contradicts everything that has been fed to us from the goons within Ewood, since Berg was sacked. We are being LIED to on a daily basis. If MA is the best that we can do, then there is no hope. This is the final insult, and possibly the final nail in our coffin. BRFC: Made in Blackburn by decent, honest, hard working and honourable people. DESTROYED in India, by SCUM.[/p][/quote]I THINK YOU ARE BEING DISRESPECFUL TO VERMIN AND SCUM but you have hit the nail on the head wIth your blind loyalty quote!!!!!!!!!!!!![/p][/quote]Football is a business . If you go to a restaurant and they serve bad food, what do you do ? Maybe give them a second chance but more likely you go elsewhere. Football is no different. If your club is not giving you what you want then you simply stop attending and spending your hard earned money. You continue being a supporter but you stay away until things change. It`s as simple as that. Don`t whinge or whine just vote with your feet. In the meantime it is a huge Claret welcome to Granny Smith.[/p][/quote]What a load of b01l0cks fanny. You'd have chased em out of town? No you wouldn't. These w4nkers are based thousands of miles away. They don't give two sh1ts about the supporters. You'd do exactly what we've done. There'd be dingles who'd boycott, there'd be those who'd pick and chose games, there'd be some that renew ST's and carry on like nothings changed because they will support through thick and thin. You lot would be falling out with each other EXACTLY like Rovers fans have done. Don't make out Bonlehs some righteous club that wouldn't stand for it. Money talks and the facts are no matter what club or supporter, the owners and money men call the shots and there is f*ck all can be done unless absolutely every single fan without fail unites and has complete and utter mass boycott until the owners sell up, which could take months and months and would therefore be almost impossible to implement. When we boycott, we're all glory hunters. When we protest, we're all whingers. If we had 20,000 every other week (like last time we were in this division) we'd be fools for lining Venkys pockets. Dammed if we do - dammed if we don't.[/p][/quote]You are actually right. It would be no different down the road. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place. The fans always cop for the most criticism unfortunately. Why everybody else expects the fans to behave in the most perfect and appropriate way in response to Venkys and co I'm not sure. They seem to have higher expectations of the fans than those making the important decisions. It's all confusing and getting thousands of people to come to a consensus of opinion is impossible. merlinrabbit

Well that's a bit reassuring then. I had heard that rumour too and it was quite convincing reporting sources from India and Blackpool. No wonder people suspect JA in everything though with past history. Letting our guard down and trusting this regime is like the christians trusting the romans

Obviously the dingles have nothing to do this evening other than come on here. Sad. If Appleton is our New manager let's get behind him and give him a chance. He has come to a bigger club even with all the current chaos and didn't need to drop a division like Eddie Howe. We need to get real because our choice of manager is limited but it looks like this guy has taken a leap of faith so deserves our support. How his appointment has come about with conflicting reports of who was the driving force and who did and didn't know. Yet again venkys are putting Singh or Singh, Shaw and Agnew if venkys did this off their own initiative in a position to sue for constructive dismissal just as happened with Kean. But if they have to pay all three of these clowns out to get them out of our club its brass well spent. 3 points tonight lads

Sorry been away. Its posted on Twitter from a chap called Jeff Weston who works for SEM.


I'd take a look on SEM's website as well, no doubt though it'll find itself in the mainstream soon enough. I myself, am relieved to be honest. I don't think Appleton stands a chance with the JA connection cloud hanging over his head and we really do need to get behind him now he's got the job.

Now it is clear to the blind eyed beggar in the main street in Pune that there is no money to be made at Rovers and we are not going to bounce back, so it's all about an exit strategy.
In that respect, Applestrudel is a good appointment, he has experience at Pompey in a club going down the tubes. He'll make no trouble for Venkys and probably be mean enough to ignore any sulks among existing staff.
Pity the poor saps who have been doing OK as temps - they were told they'd got till the end of the month and a week later they're relegated behind Applestrudel and his oppo.
