Bowyer and McPhillips given more time

Bowyer and McPhillips given more time

Rovers have this lunchtime announced that current caretaker manager Gary Bowyer and his assistant Terry McPhillips will remain in charge of team affairs until the end of January.

The deadly duo have been in charge of the first team for the last two matches and have securerd two victories, leaving them with a 100% record so far. But they were thought to be making way for a more established name once those fixtures were concluded.

But with the club unable to secure the permanent manager that they want, the decision has been made to let the youth development coaches carry on until the end of the month.

The club statement read - 'This decision follows discussions between the Owners, Directors and Global Advisor.

The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Gary, Terry and the rest of the staff for their sterling efforts over recent days which have helped produce two successive and important league victories.

The club's search for a new permanent manager will continue in earnest.'

With Shebby Singh announcing last night that the club are unlikely to be making any new signings this monthit probably comes as no surprise that the club would struggle to attract someone decent to the role - this probably winds up being the best call for the club to make.

But why not just give them the job? Honestly.

what a joke! just so they don't have to spend any money on new players! Is Bowyer looking after the first team and reserves?

Not sure what the current arrangement is! Apparently Shebby says we're all good for coaches etc which seems a bit far fetched?!

The perfect solution for the current situation with a manager on for the next halfyear and no spending on transfers, let back them up and win the rest of the games this year :-)

this isnt a decision - it's a lack of one. Because Shaw and Agnew and Singh cant work together. That's how we got the last manager. Venky's are now behaving like a rabbit caught in the headlights. Bilaji said he expected a decision on the manager on Boxing Day - then Shebby said he hoped to make an announcement on NY day. In fact it wasnt that long ago that he reassured fans that if Berg had to leave then next time they would act much faster on appointing a manager - but it's actually going to be much longer. The results are nice - but we havent beaten Cardiff and Hull or any of the top 6 teams. And by the end of January - any new manager will have virtually no time to establish himself and will be up against Leicester, Hull and Leeds in the same month. Whoever we get now should be planning for promotion in 2014.

Won't appoint a manager or can't appoint a manager? Just another example of how badly our club is run - if they wanted to get rid of Berg they should have had someone lined up to take over. Shebby is a Joke, and the board aren't much better. But I blame venkys for putting them all in those jobs in the first place.
