Bowyer linked with Leeds, but Garner insists ‘he’s got a better job already’

GARY Bowyer is one of the bookmakers’ favourites for the vacant manager’s position at Leeds United – but Simon Garner believes he has a better job at Blackburn Rovers.

Leeds are searching for a new boss after Brian McDermott’s exit late on Friday night and Bowyer rose in the odds lists yesterday after reports suggested the Yorkshire club were admirers of the Rovers manager.

Bowyer has been a manager for little over a year but has steadied the ship at Ewood Park – a job that now needs to be done at Leeds after a turbulent season at Elland Road.

Rovers officials were unavailable for comment yesterday but sources in West Yorkshire believe that Leeds’ new Italian owner Massimo Cellino wants to speak to as many as 10 potential candidates before choosing a new manager.

Fellow Italians Gianluca Festa, Benito Carbone and Gianfranco Zola are all among the favourites for the job - with ex-Forest Green boss Dave Hockaday also a surprise candidate.

Rovers would be unlikely to welcome any interest from Leeds and Bowyer, who signed a 12-month rolling contract when he was appointed as boss on a permanent basis last summer, has always said he is happy with the position he holds at Ewood Park.

In any case, Garner thinks Leeds would be a step backwards for a manager who guided Rovers through chaos a year ago to eighth in the Championship table during the 2013/14 season.

“He’s sorted everything out at Blackburn and he must be pretty happy with his squad and will want to see how far they can go next season,” said the Rovers legend.

“Leeds are in turmoil and it would take him 12 months to sort everything out.

“It would be going back to the start, he would have to do it all again.

“With the job he has done at Rovers, clubs will be taking notice. But hopefully nothing comes of this.

“I think he will want to see what he can do next year with Rovers, and hopefully take the club into the play-offs.”

Bowyer has been looking to strengthen his Rovers squad ahead of next season and the club have been linked with Leeds’ Lee Peltier, who can play at right back or in midfield, as well as their former central defender Zurab Khizanishvili.

The 32-year-old Georgian, who played for Rovers between 2006 and 2011, is out of contract at Kayserispor but has been offered a new deal by the Turkish club.

Brentford are continuing to press ahead with their attempts to sign Rovers midfielder Alan Judge, with the London club growing more hopeful of striking a deal.

Garyintandem you obviously haven't had you medication this morning.

If you look at this from Bowyers point of view if he did go to Leeds he would probably be offered something more substantial than a 12 month rolling contract and he won't be flying to India every 2 months to explain himself to the big V's.

PLUS the opportunity to guide a big once proud club back into the premier league has to be a draw too big to overlook.

That's the problem when as a manager you show you can start to turn around a car crash club in such a relatively short time, you get noticed and I did half expect something like this.

But Leeds take the phrase "car crash" to extremes.

At Rovers GB has one massive advantage, he knows the club inside out, at Leeds there are too many factions both inside and outside the club, GB has everything he needs right now, no need to move on.

Being mentioned means absolutely nothing, the fact there are at least 10 supposed candidates speaks volumes, Leeds don't have a bloody clue what they want and are trying the scatter gun effect to see if there is any interest.

It's easy to turn a rowing boat (Burnley) around, not so easy to turn a Cruise Liner (Rovers) around but it can be done, Leeds on the other hand are a rudderless Supertanker going down fast.

Leeds will need a big name manager not someone still learning their trade like Bowyer.

Idle speculation, nothing more.

BTW, the beauty of a rolling 12 month contract in this respect is that when GB is successful at Rovers he will be able to re-negotiate his contract or walk away with his head held high, straight into another job.

And as he has been in charge for just over 12 months don't you think it's been renewed?

Morning Owd Nick. Now, "rowing boat" and "Cruise Liner" that's your best analogy ever! I draw comfort from us being flee-size super-manouverable based on proven effort. I draw even more comfort from you being a bloated mammoth, slow to manoeuvre, needlers of the "fuel-injection" and eschew all effort because of you being "the great entitled".

Bowyer? If he goes to Leeds, he's truly lost the plot.

think a move to leeds would be out of the frying pan and into the fire - expect the new leeds owner to go through managers quicker than russell brand goes through groupies.

only good thing about going to leeds would be getting a 2/3 year contract and get fired after less than 6 months (cf henning berg and appleton at ewood)

can see leeds being every bit as stupid as when briatore was in charge at QPR.

story might just be a bit of mischief making by gary bowyer's agent - and i wouldn't blame him one bit.

Tatts says...

I wonder if there's an agent behind this looking to get someone a pay rise.

I like Bowyer and I've no doubt that he is the right man for Rovers. However, if I was a Leeds fan then I would be asking why they've let McDermott go, a man who's won a Championship title, only to replace him with a manager who hasn't won anything.

I work with plenty of Leeds fans and they aren't a forgiving bunch. If Bowyer went there and had a bad start, then the knives would be out for him straight away. And having Leeds fans on your back is a lot worse than having Rovers fans on your back.

Plus Cellino has hired and fired 36 managers during his 22 year reign at Cagliari, so it could spell the end of his managerial career.

Massimo Cellino has already stated that Carbone will not become the next manager, but after the whole McDermott debacle at the end of January you never know what's going to happen next at Leeds. I thought Festa would've been announced straight away, following his involvement with the club at Cellino's insistence, but perhaps Cellino has realised it's not a 'jobs for the boys' situation.

As for Bowyer, even if he's offered an interview I'm confident he knows that the grass will not be greener, and he'll politely decline the invitation. He's put a good team together but I'm sure he'll want to finish the job he started, not start from scratch at a club with more shadows lurking in the background than at an old Cliff Richard concert.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!

Garyintandem you obviously haven't had you medication this morning.

If you look at this from Bowyers point of view if he did go to Leeds he would probably be offered something more substantial than a 12 month rolling contract and he won't be flying to India every 2 months to explain himself to the big V's.

Good morning Rovers. 1875. We've earned it through promotion. You got yours through rich man's injection. Honestly, not a jealous Dingle about this. Once you had the money you executed matters brilliantly. My point is nobody should ever have been able to this in the past. It damages all the other clubs, City etc since is wrong. FFP is correct in theory. It recognises this fact. In practice, they have totally cocked it up. If it happened at Burnley I would cease to follow the club.

This (if true) will be a good 'indicator' as to his earlier sit down discussions with Venkys. This in terms of what they have told/indicated to him for the forthcoming season, and maybe more importantly his gut instinct of their sincerity.
If he did elect to consider any offer from Leeds that would tell me awful lot, as they are possible now the 'riskiest job' in football management.
Only the 'lure' of a large pay off cheque would make sense, but do not have GB down as that sort of guy.

Any approaches for Dyche would be more 'interesting', and tell its own/similar story!

What would we do without SC constantly telling us all that is wrong with the Rovers? I wake up in a morning, log on and eagerly scan the pages of the LT site for his latest offerings and advise. I usually don't have long to wait as he is usually one of the first to comment on any and every column inches about the Rovers. Does he realise the amusement he gives to all his "fans" on these pages? He annoys so many people with his inane references to FFP, to the manager, to the comings and goings at the club. For somebody who says he supports BFC he certainly shows a great interest in their local rivals. Although he will probably say ManU are now their nearest rivals. Would we miss him if he stopped corresponding with these pages?
NO! We wouldn't.

And now Bowyer considering a move to a bigger club with more potential.

You really don't realise yet that this is just to tip of the iceberg, and when FFP finally makes it's mark you will fail to attract even League One standard players.

Garyintandem you obviously haven't had you medication this morning.

If you look at this from Bowyers point of view if he did go to Leeds he would probably be offered something more substantial than a 12 month rolling contract and he won't be flying to India every 2 months to explain himself to the big V's.

PLUS the opportunity to guide a big once proud club back into the premier league has to be a draw too big to overlook.
It's easy to turn a rowing boat (Burnley) around, not so easy to turn a Cruise Liner (Rovers) around but it can be done, Leeds on the other hand are a rudderless Supertanker going down fast.

Leeds will need a big name manager not someone still learning their trade like Bowyer.

Idle speculation, nothing more.

BTW, the beauty of a rolling 12 month contract in this respect is that when GB is successful at Rovers he will be able to re-negotiate his contract or walk away with his head held high, straight into another job.

And as he has been in charge for just over 12 months don't you think it's been renewed?
Morning Owd Nick. Now, "rowing boat" and "Cruise Liner" that's your best analogy ever! I draw comfort from us being flee-size super-manouverable based on proven effort. I draw even more comfort from you being a bloated mammoth, slow to manoeuvre, needlers of the "fuel-injection" and eschew all effort because of you being "the great entitled".

Bowyer? If he goes to Leeds, he's truly lost the plot.
'Fuel-Injection' ayyy? How about this one, no analogies needed...

Rovers spending 1994: £25,000,000.00
Same value today: £43,402,500.00

Dingles windfall 2014: £120,000,000.00
Same value in 1994: £69,120,442.37

Guess that means you win the premiership this year eh??
Good morning Rovers. 1875. We've earned it through promotion. You got yours through rich man's injection. Honestly, not a jealous Dingle about this. Once you had the money you executed matters brilliantly. My point is nobody should ever have been able to this in the past. It damages all the other clubs, City etc since is wrong. FFP is correct in theory. It recognises this fact. In practice, they have totally cocked it up. If it happened at Burnley I would cease to follow the club.

Don't forget GB is a professional and as much as he likes Rovers, he has to put his family and himself first (Financially) if Leeds come in with a deal that could make him financially secure for life then he might feel he has to take it (and who could blame him).

I'm not saying he will go and I certainly hope he won't but this MUST be a wakeup call to Venkys - If you value GB and want to keep him then get him off this poxy rolling contract and give him a solid 3 year deal - he has earned it.

A full and frank apology would obviously be required from the low-life supporters who hounded the man out, but I think he could do a job for you.

How about a coaching dream team of Steve Kean and Colin Hendry?

They didn't inject it. They loaned it. And the amount they loaned was calculated as covered by the net value of the club assets. And the ability of the club cash flow to repay them. They took Gawthorpe and Turf Moor as collateral. They took the money back with 8% interest when the club was promoted and that promotion had earned the club £60m.

You win the runner-up award in being the most bitter Dingle on the LET website, although you are some way behind Reek, the Rovers message board gimp.
I mean it. Its cheating. Jog off.
So was it cheating, back in 2008/09 when Kilby and Flood bankrolled Burnley to promotion?

Or does that not count in your own little world of hypocrisy?
They didn't inject it. They loaned it. And the amount they loaned was calculated as covered by the net value of the club assets. And the ability of the club cash flow to repay them. They took Gawthorpe and Turf Moor as collateral. They took the money back with 8% interest when the club was promoted and that promotion had earned the club £60m.
I thought you would come up with some spurious way of justifying it in your own head.

Every owner you puts money in loans it to the club you fool. They injected money, money you wouldn't have had without the benefit of wealthy benefactors.

And that, according to you, is cheating.

Stop supporting your club at once!

The power of the media never ceases to amaze!

Basically one of the least reliable excuses for a newspaper prints a few lines on a Sunday and the day later the local paper are reporting on it, the BBC have their grubby hands on it and the club are forced to release a statement about it

All because some no-mark reporter at the Daily Star needed to try and fill a few columns in his paper.

I do wonder why the Lancashire Telegraph are yet to feature a similar story about Sean Dyche, who is considered one of the front-runners for the Southampton job. That is a far more likely move to take place, with Southampton being a clear step up in every sense of the word from Burnley.
Me being the cynic would suggest that the reason the Telegraph have given this story space in their paper and not the Dyche to Southampton possibility is that one of those moves the Telegraph wants to happen and the other one fills them with dread.

Nor do the Telegraph seem to be paying much attention to the increasingly likely departure of star man Danny Ings from Turf Moor in the coming months to a league rival, again because the thought of him leaving isn't one that the people at Telegraph HQ want to entertain.

Besides, Sean Dyche's predecessor at Burnley dumped them to drop down a division and move to Bournemouth. We're a long way from that happening.

Super_Carrot gets it wrong. Again

Read it and weep:



In light of recent speculation regarding manager Gary Bowyer, Blackburn Rovers wishes to reassure fans and clarify its position.



"There has been no contact from any other club with regards to Gary, nor would any such contact be welcomed," said Director of Communications Alan Myers.




“The club noted the stories over the weekend and would not normally respond to such speculation, however we felt it important to keep supporters informed."




Gary Bowyer said “I recently met with the owners in India and those discussions were both positive and constructive.

Garyintandem you obviously haven't had you medication this morning.

If you look at this from Bowyers point of view if he did go to Leeds he would probably be offered something more substantial than a 12 month rolling contract and he won't be flying to India every 2 months to explain himself to the big V's.

PLUS the opportunity to guide a big once proud club back into the premier league has to be a draw too big to overlook.
It's easy to turn a rowing boat (Burnley) around, not so easy to turn a Cruise Liner (Rovers) around but it can be done, Leeds on the other hand are a rudderless Supertanker going down fast.

Leeds will need a big name manager not someone still learning their trade like Bowyer.

Idle speculation, nothing more.

BTW, the beauty of a rolling 12 month contract in this respect is that when GB is successful at Rovers he will be able to re-negotiate his contract or walk away with his head held high, straight into another job.

And as he has been in charge for just over 12 months don't you think it's been renewed?
Morning Owd Nick. Now, "rowing boat" and "Cruise Liner" that's your best analogy ever! I draw comfort from us being flee-size super-manouverable based on proven effort. I draw even more comfort from you being a bloated mammoth, slow to manoeuvre, needlers of the "fuel-injection" and eschew all effort because of you being "the great entitled".

Bowyer? If he goes to Leeds, he's truly lost the plot.
'Fuel-Injection' ayyy? How about this one, no analogies needed...

Rovers spending 1994: £25,000,000.00
Same value today: £43,402,500.00

Dingles windfall 2014: £120,000,000.00
Same value in 1994: £69,120,442.37

Guess that means you win the premiership this year eh??
Good morning Rovers. 1875. We've earned it through promotion. You got yours through rich man's injection. Honestly, not a jealous Dingle about this. Once you had the money you executed matters brilliantly. My point is nobody should ever have been able to this in the past. It damages all the other clubs, City etc since is wrong. FFP is correct in theory. It recognises this fact. In practice, they have totally cocked it up. If it happened at Burnley I would cease to follow the club.
So you would quit supporting Burnley if a die-hard billionaire fan took over?

What a joker!

Jealous Dingle indeed!
Oh dear. There's me thinking you were worth a debate about the point. OK fair enough. Sock Cucker.
You stopped it from being a serious debate when you said 'if it happened at Burnley I would cease to follow the club'

You win the runner-up award in being the most bitter Dingle on the LET website, although you are some way behind Reek, the Rovers message board gimp.
I mean it. Its cheating. Jog off.
So was it cheating, back in 2008/09 when Kilby and Flood bankrolled Burnley to promotion?

Or does that not count in your own little world of hypocrisy?
They didn't inject it. They loaned it. And the amount they loaned was calculated as covered by the net value of the club assets. And the ability of the club cash flow to repay them. They took Gawthorpe and Turf Moor as collateral. They took the money back with 8% interest when the club was promoted and that promotion had earned the club £60m.
I thought you would come up with some spurious way of justifying it in your own head.

Every owner you puts money in loans it to the club you fool. They injected money, money you wouldn't have had without the benefit of wealthy benefactors.

And that, according to you, is cheating.

Stop supporting your club at once!
Walker didn't. It was gifted. He didn't take it back. It was not predicated on the value of existing assets. It was just a vast sum he felt comfortable with. That is utterly different in every way. I'll carry on supporting my club. Enjoy the Championship money-bags.
You should write a book Rob.

You could call it Robs book of self righteousness.

Come on Rob, you have more sense than that.

So if Jack Walker (perish the thought) had been a Burnley fan and did for you what he did for us you wouldn't have enjoyed every single second of it?

Your comment "Nobody should ever have been able to do this in the past" is total rubbish, every club that has won the top league has technically bought it, it isn't exclusive to Rovers.

Because if you are correct what is the point of clubs like ours? Perhaps we should just let the big 4 or 6 play each other every week while the rest of us give up.

Because that is basically what FFP will create in the none to distant future.

It will have the same disastrous effect on smaller, or less successful clubs the the creation of the PL did, mark my words; FFP is opening the door for a European Super League that will strip even more money away from the rest of us.

And it will prevent owners, be they billionaire or fans from investing in the clubs.

"Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has emerged as the leading candidate to become the next manager of Leeds United.

Brian McDermott left his role as boss by mutual consent on Friday after 14 months at Elland Road.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has outlined his ambition for a young manager to replace McDermott and feels that Bowyer fits the profile.

Leeds finished 15th in the Championship last term, while Bowyer guided Rovers to an eighth-placed finish in his first full season in charge at Ewood Park."

A full and frank apology would obviously be required from the low-life supporters who hounded the man out, but I think he could do a job for you.

How about a coaching dream team of Steve Kean and Colin Hendry?
Excellence cemented in.

Owd Nick.

You do me a disservice. I am in favour of setting up something akin to the GridIron Draft. Sport is meant to be meritocratic. If a club that has, say 10,000 home gates and is Division One and has been managed badly, how is it fair that it gets s cash injection of say £20m, buys players out of reach of all the other clubs at that level and appoints a top manager too. The club gets promoted. Its a falsehood. The damage to the others is awful.

All gate receipts should be distributed equally around all clubs. The same for TV rights. Every new season, the players can be allocated to clubs by the FA as in the USA college draft. What separates the wheat from the chaff is those that win with he same allocated resources as everyone else. A bit like a golf-handicap writ large.

Much more to this theory. Not enough space on this board.

Judging by that load of tosh, you have enough space between your ears.

Rob.....you remind me of the Communists of the sixties.
Everybody is equal but some are more equal than others.
Manu, Man City, Chelsea etc are only concerned about their own little empires. If they had their way they would just be playing in a European league casting the "minnows" to the wolves.
They forget that football is about the fan, not the money. But too them money is the be all and end all.
JW took a small town club and grew it into a winning club. Yes it took money but he ploughed the money into the club and the community by providing an Academy, an improved stadium and a indoor football centre. With no thought for commercial return to himself.
Without his input none of the other clubs in the lower leagues would probably exist today. Their reliance on monies filtering down from the top is their lifeline.

Is this the same lowly 8th you mentioned before?
Is it now a success story because he is being linked to another club?
Again you fill our pages with bs and the comedy of contradiction continues :-)

Not my view, just the comments from a news website. I personally thought your 8th place finish was nothing less than shameful from a team only two seasons out of the Premier League. No contradiction whatsoever, you're still as sh!te as you were last week. The fact that Bowyer wants out shows just how far you've fallen. And you can't blame him for seeking the security and stability of a sleeping giant such as Leeds United, when your own club is faced with such drastic cost cutting over the next season, I predict there will be more following Bowyer out of the door very soon. You angry little turd.
