BOWYER ON THE BRINK
Manager Gary Bowyer (pic above) is under pressure to keep his job with just five wins from fifteen games and Rovers slipping into the bottom half of the Championship table and the prospect of another fight against relegation.
Not my opinion but those of the impatient ruling Venky’s clan, fuelled by the mad Malaysian Shebby Singh.
Managing Director Derek Shaw’s choice of manager, Ian Holloway, to take over from the sacked Steve Kean last October is now available having left Crystal Palace. Shaw was over ruled by Shebby Singh who preferred Henning Berg and we all know what a disaster that turned out to be.
Shaw prefers to keep Bowyer long term and bring some much needed stability to the club. Venky’s however regret not going along with Shaw’s choice of Holloway 12 months ago. Holloway wanted the job and felt let down by the Rovers. His family home is but a 45 minute drive away on the Fylde coast. Not until Rovers appointed Berg did Holloway take the Crystal Palace position. With Holloway available again the Venky clan, who now regard Shaw’s opinions, have renewed their interest.
Whether a manager of Holloway’s standing or any manager for that matter want to join the Ewood ‘mad house’ is another matter.
DAVID 'LETS IT SLIP'.
Rovers longest serving player David Dunn speaking at a fan's forum, said "the reason the Rao family do not communicate with the supporters is that in the past they have been let down by people they have trusted, taking advantage of, given poor advice, and financially taken for mugs".
That is the jist of what Dunn had to say. Ever the diplomat what David didnt do was name names. Jerome Anderson and Steve Kean ring any bells David?
