Ince Appointed MK Dons Manager Again!

Ince Appointed MK Dons Manager Again!

Paul Ince has agreed a two-year deal to return to Milton Keynes Dons for a second spell as manager.

The former Rovers manager has come full circle to return to the post he vacated to become Rovers manager in the first place.

Rovers sacked Ince in December 2008 after a shocking spell in charge.

Dons chairman Pete Winkelman, speaking to the BBC said - 'We felt he had unfinished business and it feels right he should return and build on the momentum he helped create.'

In his first full season in charge of Milton Keynes, Ince took the Dons to the League Two title and also won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final at Wembley. But his move to Rovers was a step to far, it is clear Ince has moved to rebuild his shattered reputation.

Winkleman continued - 'He enjoyed incredible success during his first spell with us and showed himself more than worthy of a shot at the Premier League,'

'His achievements and the manner in which he left meant we had to see him before we even considered anyone else and it was obvious straight away that the chemistry was still there.

'He remains one of the most talented young managers in this country and I'm enormously excited about what he can help us achieve.'

I am speechless - for the first time ever....

It didn't work out for Rovers but good luck to him at MK Dons - he's obviously made an impression there. Robbie Fowler for MK Dons? Now there's a thought - might not be as far fetched as it sounds?

I would say there's a chance of drawing them in "the cups" since BRFC are currently eligible for 2 last time I checked.

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
