Just been anounced he has been sacked
Get him in....
So excited to see the bloke sacked you couldn't even get your fingers to work I see.
Sad for the bloke. Hardly given time to get his team together. 6 months, what a waste for all concerned
I should feel sad that a young English manager who used to play for Wolves has been sacked. I'm not though, I'm really quite pleased.
The Duck to water is now covered in Hoi Sin sauce.............
Does this mean Blackburn are racist?
Tha's not a duck, it's an ex-duck.
Go get him moxley!
Panicking chairman, seeing the possibility of playing Championship football with a Prem wage bill.
Stupid thing is, to try and get someone in to save them they need to have a decent budget for January........why they couldn't give the current manager that budget though....
Nothing on BBC yet. Infact, its still running the 'Blackburn urged to keep Ice' story!
However, if he has been sacked, then it's ridiculous really. Yes their form has been shocking, and i don't think what Ince has said in public has helped. But 6 months is no time at all.
He will be back. He shouldnt have taken the job, it was way too early and way too big a jump for him. The experience should be good for him if he learns from his mistakes. He wont be out of a job for too long.
Thank god the Club didn't take any notice of the fickle.
I feel sorry for him. I think he'll have to go back down the leagues to build his reputation back up. I still believe he'll make a successful manager but too much too soon for him.
But I'm pleased we have Mick instead. And always have been.
Agree wholeheartedly with that comment. Especially as they sold some of their best talent (Bentley and Friedel) and replaced them with... He has had no opportunity to buy his own players.
That said, they are absolutely terrible especially at the back and have been for weeks, and that is with the same defenders (Samba and Nelson) who did a pretty good job last season.
His outburst against Wolves was ill-timed, but he has proved himself in the lower leagues and didn't go straight into the top flight, so kudos for him for that.
All this schadenfreude is bad form really, even iof you don't respect him as a manager, he was still useful for Wolves and great for England.
CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC. I just happened to be on line tha's all-it was just a 'byping' error
Totally out of his depth, Premier league clubs should not give jobs to such unproven managers. Adams/Zola will be following him in due course.
Which suggest the problem is with the players, not the manager. However they haven't given the manager time to find players who will play for him. It's obvious from his record he can manage, and manage well. If you've not got any patience then as a chairman you deserve to fail.
Hope Blackburn go down.
Dave Jones has impressed the board with his work at Cardiff according to a local reporter interviewed on sky sports
Doesn't bode to well for Keith Andrews...
It was a bad job to take. Mark Hughes new the good times were coming to an end at Blackburn. If they go down, I can see them doing what we and many other teams have done - staying down for a long long time.
Just before Christmas too, how will he feed the family
Kenny Dalglish was usless at liverpool wasnt he. And Bob Paisley dont want to give these unproven managers a chance.
We have to sack Keogh loving McCarthy now and get Ince in asap, before it's too late and we miss out on him again...
Could be either to be fair. Is it poor tactics or poor players? No-one knows.
He only plays his favourites innit.
You do realise we're now in the year 2008?
Mmm. Interesting question. Say for instance, Robbie Keane was underperforming at Liverpool, is that because the player is now no good or because the manager isn't good enough to get the best out of him? My view is that Ince hasn't been able to get the best out of Blackburn though I don't think he has been given a fair crack of the whip to turn things around. He has players like Santa Cruz, McCarthy, Gamst, Emerton etc who are decent but not great players, but clealry he has failed to get them playing for him this year. And to me that is the whole point of being a manager, you get the best out of the players you have.
Which young and up coming managers have actually done well managing a Premier League club? Southgate and Coleman are the only ones I can think of unless you count Roy Keane, but you have to take in to account he's probably spent far more than the former two!
The huge payoff from his contract will probably help.
As said earlier whoever took the job was on a hiding to nothing, Hughes had got them to over-acheive big time. Santa Cruz will be off in the window, so whoever takes over has a tough job on their hands.
Rumours are its gonna be Souness.
Paul Ince will be back albeit at a lower level.
Billy Wright and Ron Flowers Wolves legends both were not able to make a go of management.
Even Sir Alec Ferguson was very close to the chop beforethings went well for him.
Doesnt matter what year we are in, they were still unproven managers.
Quick get him in as well! Think how strong we could be now if he was in charge and not Morgan!!!
Ince never had the necessary experience to take on Blackburn post Mark Hughes, who had got them to punch way above their weight. Then he lost Bentley within five minutes with no replacement. A few months success at Macclesfield and MK Dons is hardly proper preparation for the Premiership.
He should go off and manage a club like Oldham for a couple of years minimum before contemplating any rise up the management hierarchy. Those who suggested him for Molineux were making the usual mistake of acquainting playing ability with management ability. However there is no reason why he can't prove doubters wrong in the future. But for the moment he is woefully inexperienced.
Have charlton got a manager yet? I could see him taking that job on.
Coleman did ok at Fulham but i would still say Keane did better as he managed to get a team promoted and kept them there. Coleman just took over a below average side and kept them as they were.
Steve Bruce is a name that stands out but even he took Birmingham down but he has impressed as manager of Wigan since he took over.
I feel sorry for him, but he will be back. He was good for the Macclesfield and the MKDons and Di Matteo has done very little to the squad since Ince left and it seems to be purring all the way into the Championship. I just do not hope to be playing them next season.
david moyes is surely the best example, but currently phil brown
On this rationale Mark Hughes should be the next one to be sacked - City are in danger of the drop and have spent $$$$loads.
He might not have all his own players in yet, but anybody who still plays Darius Vasell deserves the sack straight away
