Shearer Wants The Job

Shearer Wants The Job

Alan Shearer has reportedly informed John Williams that he wants to become the new Blackburn Rovers manager.

Shearer was one of the first names linked with the job after Mark Hughes left for Manchester City, but Rovers were unsure that he would want to give up his well paid job which is to agree with Alan Hansen at the BBC.

However, The Times newspaper is reporting that Shearer has told Rovers chairman John Williams that he does want to be considered for the role.

His lack of experience would require an experienced back room coaching team but he is without a doubt the fan's choice for the job.

Dont be fooled by his waterted down role on TV... the man can inspire the best of them.

Meanwhile, former Blackburn coach Tony Parkes thinks that Shearer deserves his chance.

Parkes told The Daily Express: 'Alan will be a good manager - he just needs the chance to prove it. He is single-minded and has the utmost respect from players and managers throughout the game.

'When Kenny Dalglish was manager, he did hardly any coaching; most of that was down to Ray Harford. Alan could do the same if he brought in an experienced number two who could help him out with the tactical side.'

Great suggestion Tony.

Totally on board with this the times also said Newell and Tommy craig would be joining him as well. The return of the prodical son is eexactly what we need to push on, no-one in fworld football has not heard of Shearer. I hope there is some truth to all of this and not just some reporter playing with my heart strings. Time to come home big AL!!!

Notsure he would classify it as home but it would be a bold yet big step.

The Shearer link does excite me as I believe we need to be approaching another up-coming-manager. Also intrigued by Mancini's name being linked!
