"As Long As Mark Stays Here"

"As long as Mark stays here," this was a quote from Brad, which has now become a worry to us, with Chelsea desperate for a new Manager.

Chelsea are one of Mark Hughes former clubs. We were all half expecting the temptation of Man U to arise when Alex F. retires but will it be Chelsea's millions that tempts Mark Hughes now?

Could there already be a verbal agreement? Mark was at Stamford Bridge with Roman last weekend, would he fire a manager without having a replacement in mind at this time in the season?

If Mark goes, who will replace him here? Roman A.?

Thanks for this r.waterfall.
Sparky could quite possibly be a name Chelsea look at, but at this time I think that someone like Gus Hiddink could be higher on their hit list?!?!

The problem - if Mark leaves - is that he will take the 'heart and soul' of Blackburn Rovers' with him. Backroom staff, coaching staff, scouting network...not to mention players. How on earth would these be replaced and who could? (These were my thoughts before Mark was appointed, however. But what an impossible act to follow. You only need to look at PNE who lost Billy Davies and appointed an up and coming young manager... then it begins to unravel).

That day will undoubtably one day come, but it won't be until Fergie calls it a day, we will have Sparky here for a while yet!

Hughes wont go to chelsea!!! Like i said in the forum i really think roman A will go for a big name , a capello or hiddink... etc. When Hughes goes it will be for UTD. So we should all hope that fergie stays manager until he's 90 or so.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

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.
