First published in Sport This Is Lancashire: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

ALAN Shearer has said he would be willing to talk to Venky's about the vacant Blackburn Rovers managerial position, ahead of this afternoon's Championship visit of Wolves.

The former Ewood darling told the BBC earlier today he had had no contact at all with Rovers' owners but confirmed he would be wi.ling to listen if they approached him.

Meanwhile the biggest home crowd of the season is expected this afternoon as Eric Black takes charge of his first game at Ewood Park.

After a solid 30 minutes against Nottingham Forrest mid-week, Colin Kazim Richards makes his first start for Rovers since his return from injury. Nuno Gomes drops to the bench.

Rovers will continue with their 3-5-2 formation, with Grant Hanley, Scott Dann and Gael Givet forming a central defensive three.

ROVERS:Robinson, Orr, Olsson, Givet, Formica, Murphy, Dann, Rhodes, Hanley, Kazim Richards. SUBS Nunes, Dunn, Pederson, Etuhu, Rochina, Gomes, Kean (GK)

WOLVERHAPTON WANDERERSl Stearman, Henry, Ebanks-Blake, Sako, Ward, Johnson, Berra, Davis, Doumbia, Foley. Subs: Nouble, Jonsson, Zubar, Batth, Forde, Margeitter, McCarey (GK)

Never seen such a negative looking teamsheet ever. You would think that coward Black would show some balls and endeavor to win a job, seems like he is doing everything in his power to not get the job. Must not like the Venkys.

Only has 10 men

Lowe is also in the team

That is only 4 players in the team that are not principally defenders, and of course, you have Orr as a wing back

The problem at Blackburn is not just getting in a new manager, they have ripped the heart out of the club and the fans are still divided , the real problem is the owner DESAI until she says enough , the problems will continue.

Compared to some of the names being tossed around on here surely Shearer would be a great shout? He only left us when we lost our ambition and we replaced Kenny with Ray, I never blamed him for that. I have been a Rovers supporter for 50 years and he’s the best player I’ve ever seen in blue and white halves (although my heart pulls for Bryan Douglas!). What appeals to me is that he is a big name and would bring us a high profile, he’d attract good players and command respect from those we’ve already got. More importantly he wouldn’t even consider taking the job unless Venky’s gave him assurances about non-interference in football matters – he wouldn’t take any crap and is big enough to walk away if they (or Singh) start to meddle. I can’t understand why so many fans are against him?

To relieve a perfectly good manager of his duties and replace him with training ground coaches for 2 years is absolutely diabolical.

Shearer, you have about as much experience as Kean. Please Sheeby, do not sign this so called 'expert'.

"I will consider it if they approach me"

Who does he think he is? Alex Ferguson?

You've got some opinion of yourself there Shearer given your record as Newcastle manager.

Alternatively that may be his way of telling Venkys that he won't be dancing to the same tune that the charlatan did. I'd have Shearer as manager only if he brought Dowie and especially Newell with him. Newell was doing good stuff at Luton and would soon expose any nefarious antics of certain agents who like to tell fairytales.

Shearer ! , why oh why do these ex footballers think they are managers..
I`m Alan Shearer I`m a football manager , "no" your not, "your" Alan Shearer a ex top English striker.

Leave football management to those that have walked the walk .Shearer can talk the talk but as far as management has not yet walked the walk.
Shearer why don`t you go to Hartlepools/Darlingt
on do what Fergie/Wenger and other great managers did , start at the bottom and learn to be a manager there and if you do O.K. there ,then you can apply to be the manager at Rovers.

It is becoming greater concern by the day....
Fact is:
1) Venky,s will always need advice re Football
2) Singh tells us HE is the man to find to right person....what qualify,s him to now being suddenly the wise man of Ewood.... I DO NOT KNOW....!!!!!
BIG QUESTION BEING IS "WHAT WISDOM IS THERE WITHIN THE CLUB RIGHT NOW" !!!!
3) Without the Anderson/Kean influence and THEIR appointments being totally removed there is NO new beginning.
4) The weakened state that Kean has left the playing staff in, it will need time AND MONEY to bring to up to "promotion" level.
Can you see the Venky,s opening up, to allowing a top quality experienced Manager to have his own structure & staff in place PLUS - PLUS backing him 100% with transfer money URGENTLY needed ?!?!?!
I see a need for a minimum of 3/4 top quality new "young" players in January to give an instantly needed boost to the squad....that is only if we can stay within 10 points of the top teams by Christmas !!!
SHEBBY...I FOR ONE AM NOT HOLDING MY BREATH....BUT WHEN ARE WE GOING TO HEAR YOUR WORDS OF WISDOM....TIME IS VERY CRITICAL INDEED AND THIS IS NO TIME FOR PROCASTINATION !!!!
