The Morning After

The Morning After

The last few days have been a whirlwind and speculation has been gathering pace about who is the man to replace Mark Hughes at Blackburn Rovers. Initially it was thought Sam Allardyce was the nailed on favourite for the job but it has now emerged that the Rovers board have a shortlist of two to start with... Paul Ince and Alan Shearer.

Now it is merely speculation but Paul Ince has emerged as the leading contender according to various media sources.

Ince has just taken MK Dons to promotion from League 2 and won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. That followed on from his first achievement in management which was the miraculous survival of Macclesfield in the football league, trust me that was miraculous.

Ince may now be fast-tracked into the Premier League, much quicker than many thought, with a three year deal being allegedly discussed by Blackburn.

Rovers are not thought to have made an approach yet, as Ince is on holiday, but in my eyes this is the kind of appointment we need to make, a big name in football with bags of potential. If Ince was the guy he would get my backing.

Alan Shearer's name has also been mentioned but it remains to be seen whether he is interested or whether he has the capabilities of being a full time manager at a high level.

Either way, it's definitely better than McClaren!!!

Just speculation at this point but I feel as a group of fans and a club we need to move on and get positive quickly. The futures bright, the future's blue and white.

Yer i think that Ince would be good a risk, but like the idea of a fresh face is always good, make the history books as well. Much prefer him to Mclaren or Allardyce. I think John Williams will know if Ince is up to it, but i could see him being another Hughes, Keane especially no experience look what he did to Sunderland. Ince can do it.

It is vital that we appoint the right man, if we get this wrong then we'll pay for it!!! I would personally go for Paul Ince, he is hungry like Sparky and was similar in his approach on the pitch, his lack of experience is a concern but he HAS shown what he can do so far in his managerial career. A risky move maybe, but a worthwhile one though I think.

Have a look on the forum for suggestions for your new name gaffer. Some good ones on there. Ince for me.

Ince for me as well and back him up with some top class coaches. I think we might have to be patient though as i would not expect too much in his first season in the premiership. This could be an exciting appointment as he would command as much respect from the players as Hughes did because of what he achieved as a player

Either for me, the lack of experience thing isnt really a problem for me. I personally want hunger and the drive to succeed.

no to shearer for me he just seems like a plank on MOTD, i know they have stuff to stick to but he never has anything insightful to say and that would worry me. Ince has some experience and had a good reputation as a player so the players will respect him!
