No more Mr Nice Guy, says Blackburn Rovers boss

Lancashire Telegraph: Gary Bowyer Gary Bowyer

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has got tough with his players in a bid to inspire a shock win at title-chasing QPR tomorrow.

Angry Bowyer let his side know in no uncertain terms that their second-half showing in Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat to Ipswich Town was unacceptable before demanding an instant reaction at Loftus Road.

And if he gets one he sees no reason why Rovers cannot end QPR’s unbeaten home record.

“The players understood more the passion and desire that I have, what my standards are, what is acceptable and what is not acceptable,” said Bowyer, who admits he has never been angrier than he was after the Portman Road collapse.

“I think they’ve seen that from me that’s for sure.

“I’ve come out in the press and defended them when they’ve performed well and lost, and praised them when the time was right to praise them, but the second half showing was not good enough for what we want to achieve this year.”

Bowyer and his coaching staff sat down with the Rovers squad yesterday morning and went through the Ipswich game before shifting their focus to the clash with Harry Redknapp’s high flyers.

“We’ve watched it with the players, made our points clear, and that’s the end of it,” said Bowyer.

“Now we’ve got to make sure we have a response against QPR because we’re more than capable of going and winning there. They’ve got a Premiership manager, Premiership players and a Premiership budget.

“But it’s a chance for us to go down there and see what we’re made of – and see who has got some heart and some fight because that’s what we’re demanding.”

Rovers, who are now eight points behind the play-off places in 13th, will be underdogs. They have won only one away game all season while second-placed QPR have tasted eight victories and one draw in front of their own fans.

But given that Rovers have drawn at third-placed Burnley, fourth-placed Derby County and sixth-placed Blackpool, Bowyer believes they can become the first team to win at the home of the Hoops.

“We’ve also drawn at home to Reading and beat Watford and Leeds at home and they were or are in the top six,” added Bowyer, who concedes now is the time for actions not words.

“We’re more than capable of going there, putting a performance in and winning the game.

“That’s the challenge for us and it is one I’m certainly relishing.”

Chris Taylor and David Dunn return tomorrow while Grant Hanley is expected to recover from the arm injury that he sustained against Ipswich. But Todd Kane will miss out with a one-match suspension.

What difference is becoming Mr Angry going to make?? Yet again GB fails to spot the real reasons for our poor performances........
..team selection and tactics are key and until he gets it right nothings going to change. Bet he doesn't play Rochina before the 80th minute if at all.

Good to see Dunny and Taylor back, Williamson doesn't really cut it for me. I would also like to see Gestede start, lets see what he is made of. Henley should be in if he is fit enough if not we can drop Lowe back to fullback and shuffle the midfield around a bit.

It will be a big bonus if Rochina has now got enough miles in his legs to take over from Dunny as he fades in the second half, the more times we can get him on a pitch over the next few weeks the better.

As for the "Mr Angry" tag; I don't really think it suits GB does it? lol.

Maybe the penny has dropped that being Mr nice guy will get him no where but the sack. He is in the wrong time zone at Blackburn to be able to learn his trade over a couple of years before gaining some success. The financial state of Rovers means that he has to have success this year. He needs to sort his tactics out fast as this team is under achieving big style. We tend to make more mistakes away from home because teams tend to attack us a lot more and his keeper has now become a real liability unfortunately.

In Craig Short and Hendry we have two of our best former defenders on staff.
How come our defence is not doing the job away from home ?
I don't think that would have happened when they were leading the back line.
As for "no more Mister Nice Guy", a Manager needs respect from his players more than he needs their friendship.

We have tried the ex player as manager, we have tried an experienced manager, both failed. We are now trying a man with the club's best interests at heart. He has lost games, he has won some games. The main thing is he is bringing some much needed stability to the club. Now is not the time to get on his back.
You must realise DD that your idea to get another experienced man in is not going to work. Even Kenny would have trouble sorting out the mess that is BRFC. What is required as we all know, is for the owners to leave. But that is not going to happen any time soon. We must continue to have faith in GB and the players we have at the moment. They are obviously not good enough to get us promoted this season but they are good enough to keep us safe this season. So if the club is stabilised by the end of the season then there is a chance of success next season, because we will be able to attract better players to the club. Assuming finances are available.

i was going to Drive my Mrs and the lad to this one but if i'm honest i don't think we've the heart to beat QPR, if we'd have got something out of the ipswich game then i may still have gone.....it's a long way to go to drive back disappointed, not to mention the cost ££££.

these are strong words from GB, but if words like that are going to work you have to ask yourself why he hasn't used them before.....

the seasons shadow grows long and there's no indication that things are going to change soon.

Gary you state "They’ve got a Premiership manager, Premiership players and a Premiership budget" a few years ago so did we...that was of course until the moronic baffoons from India got the chicken plucking hands on our club

Riverside 7 says...

GB has been in charge of team selection since Appleton was sacked in March - thats almost 9 months ago.
He has been the official manager of Blackburn Rovers since May.

Is he trying to say that in all that time he has not got angry with any of his players for poor performances?
I can certainly think of a few games this season when our performace level has been uacceptable.

Fans have got to ask why has he waited until now?

Perhaps it was his first sight of the league table on Monday that has shook him up little.

It will be interesting to see his tactics tomorrow.
Will he play with with 2 strikers away from home as he did at Ipswich, or will he flood the midfield and try and stifle the league leaders (QPR are joint top with Leicester).

The worrying thing for me, is that although he has been in charge nearly 9 months, he still dosn't appear to know his best team.
GB has been in charge of team selection since Appleton was sacked in March - thats almost 9 months ago. He has been the official manager of Blackburn Rovers since May. Is he trying to say that in all that time he has not got angry with any of his players for poor performances? I can certainly think of a few games this season when our performace level has been uacceptable. Fans have got to ask why has he waited until now? Perhaps it was his first sight of the league table on Monday that has shook him up little. It will be interesting to see his tactics tomorrow. Will he play with with 2 strikers away from home as he did at Ipswich, or will he flood the midfield and try and stifle the league leaders (QPR are joint top with Leicester). The worrying thing for me, is that although he has been in charge nearly 9 months, he still dosn't appear to know his best team. Riverside 7

We have tried the ex player as manager, we have tried an experienced manager, both failed. We are now trying a man with the club's best interests at heart. He has lost games, he has won some games. The main thing is he is bringing some much needed stability to the club. Now is not the time to get on his back.
You must realise DD that your idea to get another experienced man in is not going to work. Even Kenny would have trouble sorting out the mess that is BRFC. What is required as we all know, is for the owners to leave. But that is not going to happen any time soon. We must continue to have faith in GB and the players we have at the moment. They are obviously not good enough to get us promoted this season but they are good enough to keep us safe this season. So if the club is stabilised by the end of the season then there is a chance of success next season, because we will be able to attract better players to the club. Assuming finances are available.
sorry Darener as much as we all want success at Ewood its not going to happen - no transfer monies available, transfer embargo and who in their right mind would want to join a second rate team under second rate management regime - this set up is simply not good and very little chance of any promotion with these owners, manAgement or players.

Claret in peace. Given the size and quality of your squad, you should be in a playoff spot already. The fact that you're not really must track back to the management and the tactics. Martin Allen when at Gillingham last year, Dyche at the Turf and Robbins at Huddersfield are three examples of managers that work the resources they have to the maximum. At Burnley, the size of the club's budget effectively renders a transfer embargo. Yet we seem to manage. You've go tot get behind him and the team and put the background rubbish out of your minds. Supporters can instil confidence and that might be the remedy. Good luck anyway with a place in the playoffs at season's-end. We'll have gone up as Champions, no question!

As many post have said in the past and I will keep repeating it MID TABLE FINISH (IMO) this season is the most we can expect, we have a mediocre team, which delivers mediocre results ie:- you win a couple you draw a couple and you loose a couple we are NOT going to go on a six match winning streak because we are simply mediocre. For me it's how we win draw and loose that counts,the last two away performances have been awful IMO and that's what hurts rather than the points loss. I will continue with my support at ewood sat there with realistic thoughts of mediocrity.

GB quote: “We’re more than capable of going there, putting a performance in and winning the game."

Funny that, I thought the same when I traveled to Doncaster away, only to drive back home on a Friday night bitterly disappointed...

...since then I can only recall a couple of home wins where the performance actually merited the result.

Weak squad = weak team = weak results = mid-table mediocrity

Just more rhetoric to hide the truth, we're not good enough to win games.

Strong words should have been said at the first game of the season not half way through the campaign.


If they come away with nothing tomorrow what will be said next ?

Bowyer needs to start winning and soon or he will be history before long.

Agree with what you say but he won't stabalise us if he can't keep us away from a relegation zone. Unfortunately recent results say that we could be in a relegation fight in the not too distant future. and Venky's will no doubt pounce. He needs to be succesful in order to give us stability.

Funniest post of the year, DD says "we want success at Ewood". The very model of the kind of supporter every club desires, when results go bad he's first out of the traps with his criticism, when results go well he goes into hiding.

Because Rochina isn't fit enough to start a game yet.
It is no good sitting him on the bench game after game if he is not fit to play..Might as well put someone who is fit.
