Crack The champagne McClaren & Allardyce Are Out

Blackburn Rovers WILL NOT be managed by Steve McClaren OR Sam Allardyce next season as one has been confirmed as the manager of FC Twente, with the other withdrawing from the race.

It might not be known who the new manager at Ewood Park will be (however, Paul Ince and Michael Laudrup are understood to be leading this race) but we now know that it won't be McClaren, as the former England manager has taken over the Dutch club on a two-year contract and Allardyce has withdrawn from the running according to early reports this morning on Sky Sports.

Most of us were PRAYING that McClaren wouldn't get the job, with more than a fair few also hoping this about Allardyce as well, but with Stevie Mac reported as having turned down the Twente job recently in favour of the Rovers position we were worried, but we are now safe so the champagne can be cracked open. News shortly after that Allardyce had also officially ruled himself out has brightened my day!!!

Great news that got rid of those two but please J.Williams get Laudrup in over Ince, if you have a choice please chose Laudrup and not Ince which the media seems to be portraying you would chose Ince.
