MK Dons Pave The Way For Andrews' Rovers Move?

MK Dons Pave The Way For Andrews' Rovers Move?

Milton Keynes Dons skipper Keith Andrews has been told that he can leave the stadium:mk, which means he is ALMOST certain to join his former manager Paul Ince at Blackburn Rovers.

MK Dons manager Roberto Di Matteo has stated that Rovers have shown an interest in the midfielder, who has himself made it clear that he wants to follow Ince to Ewood Park so when an acceptable bid is received and terms and conditions are agreed (as expected) he will team up with Incey again.

A statement on the Official Milton Keynes Dons Website said: "Keith is a player we value extremely highly and remain committed to retaining but we maintain our policy of not standing in the way of an individual's professional development.

"We have received no formal offers for Keith but in order to prevent the intense speculation of recent weeks jeopardising the start of our season we feel it is in everyone's interests to settle this unhelpful situation.
"

Andrews has previously played for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Hull City, but has little (probably no) Premier League experience and personally I've got my doubts about his ability to do so?!?!

It looks like Incey will be going after Andrews, but I'm not so sure on this one dudes!!!

who knows? ince has managed him for a season at mk dons so he will know him well enough to decide whether he can cope in the premier league. now that we're in pre-season too, ince will haveb een able to assess dunn, reid, vogel, etc and if he's interested in signing andrews then we can safely say he isn't happy with his midfield. villanueva and castillo both also play around the midfield so if Ince knows these positions and who to put in them as well as Sparky knew his position and who to put in it, i'm sure we're on to a winner.

Touche dude!!! Sparky picked a mean striker, if Incey can pick a mean midfielder then he knows best. VERY good point!!!

From a Dons perspective, I can honestly say he isn't Premier League quality. He's had one very good season at the club under Ince, but he will do well to get onto your bench, let alone make an impact. Looks like the deal is done though. You'll probably hear it over on Vital Dons first so I'd suggest stay tuned to there :-)

Well i think someone who couldn't make it into a Wolves team should not get into a Rovers team final, our current midfield lot are way better and that is saying something.

I know that as Rovers fans we are eternal optimists but i really think that some of u are dreaming!!! Ince has done nothing to convince me so far that he is the right man for the job.....Bents is adamant he's goin, Brad's slapped a transfer request in n RSC is a possibility!!! He springs ROBBIE FOWLER on us n now Keith Andrews!! - I do have the inside track on that divisions n Andrews is NOT good enough. He's floated from club to club n has never made his mark. To say i'm worried is an understatement!!!! Shining light Carlos VILLENUEVE!!! Top player!

He has seen our squad, if he thinks Andrews is good enough to fit in then fair enough... time will tell.

Mani13963 - I do believe that some of the issues that have arisen would have happened whether Ince was our manager or not... Bents said he wanted to go when Hughes was here. Friedel has been tempted by a great move away (no one can blame him). RSC has said he is not going, but teams have been sniffing around him last season. Fowler, as far as I know is on trial, Andrews I have no idea about - but yes he has signed Villenueve and has said he wants to keep all his players. Hughes didn't make a great start by getting shot of parks, and I wasn't overwhelmed by the prospect of Savage... but he knew what he was doing and he did a good job - I hope the same for Ince

Great post FN1. Lets give a chance. He is doing things his way, which whilst it is different from Hughes will still be effective.

I am more than willing to give Ince his chance. I don't completely agree with some of what your saying tho. In my opinion, ONLY Bentley would have left this summer had Hughes stayed. Whilst Ince isn't directly culpable for the instability that follows when any manager leaves i just think that he put a slant on his start by even being liked with Fowler or Andrews. What must the likes of Derbyshire and Gallacher really think of us even trilling Fowler???? What must Dunny and Reidy think about the likes of Andrews??......I think these types of ideas make good players unsettled and great players turn away......I am the worlds worst worrier and i really hope you all say "Told you so" later in the season - COME ON ROVERS!!!!!!!
