Blackburn Rovers: Out goes Ince (thank God, finally!), In goes Big Sam...



*Sigh*.....really hoped to see him achieve great things at Ewood (well, by Rovers' standard, great could either be defined as having reached a top 6 or 7 finish in the EPL! Haha...). His promise to continue his magic touch, as displayed during his tenure with Macclesfield and MK Dons, didn't materialise. Severely criticised as well for bringing in his former Dons' captain Keith "I-can't-play-footie" Andrews into the fold, amidst disastrous results in the past couple of months. Heck, they have not won since September I reckon. Now, that's bad. I can't possibly stand another heartache of witnessing another season of playing with Burnley 'down under' in the Championship. Yup, for those who had missed my (much) earlier post, I am an ardent Blackburn Rovers supporter. Though heavily laughed at, I stand firm in my choice of football club and believe every fan has the right to choose the club of their fancy; and I am, however, a stern believer that one should NOT be a mere glory hunter aka success follower....sadly this is the case with new football supporters nowadays.
For Paul Ince, his mismanagement of the team during his 17 games in charge, with only 3 wins to date and currently being in 19th place; is bad for a club whose been chasing the top 6 pack for the last couple of years. Surely there are 21 more games to go, a long way for any EPL team for that matter, but survival is a game no one should ever leave to chance. At the end of the day, Rovers fans were just glad he's gone.

Now Sam Allardyce has been appointed to replace Ince, one must not forget how this man was severely criticised for employing the so-called unproductive 'long-ball' tactics while he was in charge of Bolton. Well, criticisms aside, Bolton did compete in Europe for the past few years....so if long-ball tactic is what it takes to avoid being in the Championship next season, then long-ball it is!!!
