Dunn: Losing Hughes Isn't A Fatal Blow

Dunn: Losing Hughes Isn't A Fatal Blow

Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn has conceded that losing Mark Hughes was a major blow, but this IS a blow that Rovers can recover from.

Dunn is doing his best to raise morale by insisting that as disappointing as it is to have seen Hughes leave Ewood Park the club CAN and WILL continue to move forward as he is convinced that John Williams and the Board WILL appoint the right man to make this possible.

Dunn told the Lancashire Telegraph: "It's a massive blow.

"He brought most of the players to the club, including me, and it's very disappointing to see him leave.

"He's built a good team here and it's a big shame that he won't be staying on to take us forwards. But he's gone now and the club has to move on without him.

"It's not the first time John Williams has had to look for a new manager, and I'm sure he will come up trumps again
."

People come and go don't they, it was a MASSIVE blow to lose Sparky but time does go on, and it is time for positive thinking much like Dunn is.

It doesnt bother me that hughes has left us anymore im more excited about who the new man is going to be.. id like to see Paul Ince as the rovers boss and maybe shearer as a number 2????? to gain experience.. but i think alan would anly take the managers job.

Merlin.... Dunny is a Rovers fan. He wouldnt want to join City. And kendog I agree with you there, even if you speak in "text talk".
