Appleton approach rejected by 'Pool

Appleton approach rejected by 'Pool

Rovers have been rebuffed in their attempts to speak to Michael Appleton about the current permanent vacancy at Ewood Park.

It was announced last night via the Rovers official website that the club had made an approach to speak to the relatively new Blackpool boss about another job switch, which has this morning been knocked back.

Derek Shaw and Paul Agnew (codename - Shagnew) are the people behind the strange move that involved announcing a manager pursuit before it had been concluded on the club website.

Quite what current caretaker Gary Bowyer thinks of all this is open to debate but the players all appear to be ready made fans of the current temporary manager with Martin Olsson the latest to push for a longer rain for the former Reserve and Youth team boss.

Olsson told the Lancashire Telegraph - "Gary is putting his name forward with this run of results. Everyone loves him at the club so that is a good thing. The feedback he gives us helps us all out.

"I am very happy with Gary in charge, I have known him since I was 17. I have learnt a lot of things from him and he is still giving me feedback now.

"I have only good things to say about him. We will see how long he is here but I have only good things to say about him at the moment.

"He trusts all his players and he has told us to go out there and express ourselves. Everyone has done that and it is looking good."

Don't expect this knock back to be the end of the Appleton issue, it's fairly standard practice and is unlikely to draw a line under it.

Interesting, really would prefer Gary to keep the job if this is the option, all the players talk highly of him

Another day, another farce... Now blackpool are allowing talks to proceed... Not that I want them too. We need an experienced, decent manager. Shebby and the venkys haven't got a clue. And or board are just as useless

Think this a good thing to be honest.Seems that Shaw and Agnew, or Shagnew as they are affectionately now known are driving this one and not Singh.Would have been happy for him to take over when Berg did,and although he doesn't have a huge amount of experience,the Venkys and Shebby have made sure that we havn't a chance anymore to get an experienced and good manager. Think this is a man that can be trusted with the team though and one which the fans can get behind, and if statements from respected people in football are to be believed he has a hell of a lot of potential. However good a job the two boys are currently doing,a manager needed to come in before its too late to spend some cash in the window (if there is any to spend).
