Vukcevic given fresh chance at Rovers

ERIC Black believes Blackburn Rovers’ forgotten man Simon Vukcevic has a “fresh chance” at Ewood Park – whoever finally takes the permanent reins.

Rovers’ caretaker boss will be monitoring the Montenegrin international closely in tonight’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine in Kiev and insists the past ‘means nothing’.

Vukcevic has endured a nightmare first 14 months at Ewood after signing from Sporting Lisbon in August 2011, having made just 10 appearances last season and one in the league cup this time around.

But now, as the club continue to bide their time in the search for a new manager, Black believes Vukcevic, along with others, has the chance to stake their claim at the start of a new era.

Black will be paying close attention to Vukcevic’s international role as an attacking central midfielder this evening, having spent his Ewood career so far as a winger, as he prepares to continue in temporary charge for Saturday’s Championship trip to Derby County.

He said: “Of course it is a fresh chance for everyone, that has to be the case. There has to be, everyone at the club should see the what has happened as another opportunity.

“Every manager is different, everyone sees the game slightly different. “Everyone sees players with advantages and disadvantages.

“I would hope even the last few days people will be thinking ‘maybe I can show him here’. I hope that is the case.

“The manager is in the position to make the ultimate decision. If I feel somebody should be playing then I will play them.

“If someone shows me they can affect the outcome of a game on a Saturday then that is all I focus on. If they can affect that outcome in a positive manner then they won’t be far away from it.

“I want to see Simon in the international team. “I hear he plays in a different position and, probably my ignorance but Ididn’t know he played in a lot different position.

“He plays in central midfield and I want to see him to assess him. That is something I will look at.”

Meanwhile, Rovers are yet to make their move in the search for Steve Kean’s successor, with a number of options still open to them.

Former skipper Tim Sherwood is understood to remain global advisor Shebby Singh’s favoured choice but it remains highly unlikely that Spurs will make that possible.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway and Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are also understood to be on Rovers’ shortlist, with Barnsley manager Keith Hill and MK Dons boss Karl Robinson also under consideration.

Solskjaer yesterday told a Norwegian newspaper he would definitely see out the season with Molde, although their campaign ends next month.

“There will always be speculation when someone in England needs a new manager,” he said.

“There are surely 20 names who have been linked with Bolton now and it's natural that mine is among them. But it's not for me.

“Blackburn, Bolton, rumours crop up all the time. But I’m not that bothered about them.

“I'm absolutely certain I will see out the season here (with Molde), I can promise that.”

I would love Karl Robinson to be given a chance - young coach who gets his team to play good attacking football whilst also defending solidly.

When we played them in LC a few months ago they were very impressive, even though, like Rovers they had made 5 or 6 changes.

Their movement, width and passing was on a different level to ours.

I'm surprised that he hasnt had more of a mention seeing as though he was mentioned alot over summer when everyone thought Mr Potato-head was going to get potted then.

And please don't say "he's not a big enough name" - surely we want some-one who can improve the team from the shower, its become not just "a name" - which won't mean much, very quickly if "the name" then can't improve things on the pitch (where it actually matters).

Also, please don't say about KR "he's only managed at a lower level" - because the rate MK Dons are rising and the rate BRFC are falling it won't be too long before we're below them in the league !!

He has achieved alot with very little money at MK-D AND he is an ex-Rovers coach so knows his way round our club.

I agree... my preferred choice would be Holloway however an alternative would be Robinson. I want a hungry individual who will a) teach our team how to defend b) attack and create chances for Rhodes c) get rid of all the dead wood from our squad.

Why the hell would they consider Keith Hill for the job when his record at Barnsley's is even worse than Kean's at Rovers??? What goes through the minds of these idiots?? As for Sherwood, he is Hendry and Shebby Singh's ESPN buddy. If Sherwood comes (which Shabby has clearly designed all along), then expect the granny robber to stay and the fans to hit the exit gates. I cannot imagine Jack Walker would entertain having Sherwood and/or Hendry around the place for a nanosecond. Singh and the rest of the 'management team' are so far out of their depth it is clear for all to see. If they feel so desperate to appoint a former player then please go for Shearer....and get rid of Hendry!!! The defence has got even worse since they got that idiot on board.

I echo the thought that Karl Robinson could be a decent bet. He has done a good job in the last two seasons at MK Dons and has taken them close to promotion. Keith Hill - no thanks. He has seen his reputation soar on the basis that Barnsley beat Birmingham 5-0 recently. Other than that his time at Oakwell has been mediocre to say the least (winning around 20-30% of his games).

I think Simon Grayson would be an excellent bet. An ex-player who has done well everywhere. He's only 40 and already has 3 promotions under his belt. Has done very very well with Huddersfield this season.

Still cannot understand why you would take a gamble on somebody with zero experience of managing or the Championship when there are a range of managers out there who know the league inside out - McCarthy, Davies, Grayson, Holloway. Why risk it? In all likelihood a Sherwood or Shearer appointment would require the rest of this season and next summer to 'settle in' which Singh has already admitted we cannot allow to happen. So get someone who can hit the ground running

Hill is far superior to be mentioned in the same vein as Kean. He has inherited a poor team, kept them afloat over the seasons at Barnsley, compound with some very impressive performances this season. Any manager at Barnsley is under huge financal pressures, and his recruitment has been pretty sound from what I am aware. They were very impressive against rovers this year, pressing high up the pitch with unbelievable stamina & good control of the ball. He has a very below par team there and is doing a hell of a job.. give him the resources our squad holds and he could do very well. Certainly should be on the shortlist, certainly over the inexperienced Sherwood or Shearer for me.

Everything that comes out of Ewood, just does not add up or make a great deal of sense. This just illustrates the depth of damage bestowed on the club.
I still believe they desire to give EB a crack and are just stalling upon this 'decision' knowing that the support will not take kindly to it.
EB is not the man to take the reins to guide the club to where it intends to be (allegedly).
I do have some doubts about having Olllie, as he is his own man and am none too sure how the 'relationship' would work.
The desired appointment would seem to be someone who just does what he is told, or has to have all his dealings nodded by an other/s.

This is obviously no way at all to run a footy club.
The crowd for the next home game WILL dip, that I am sure of.

What this articles doesn't give us is any idea as to why Vucevic has not featured under Kean. He looked o.k. when Montenegro played England but didn't feature enough in the league to show what he could do.

Black may be stupid enough to admit not knowing what poitions his players can play in, but surely he must have asked Kean at some point why he made the choices he did.

Did he not look good in training ? Was it contractual ? was is tactical ? or was it another case of difference of opinion with the manager ?

Looks like Black is just another Cone Arranger, and as anybody who sees the team doing their warmup knows, the only thing our club isn't short of is coaching staff to stand around in tracksuits doing 5od all.

The reason rovers do not play attractive football at the moment is down to the fact that we dont have wingers running at defences.We need someone to realise this and get two wingers who are capable of whipping crosses into the penalty box and creating havoc.Danny Murphy gets a lot of stick because he has an impossible job of trying to do something with the ball when realistically he knows a forward pass will be easily intercepted by the opposition as we havent got a big striker until Best returns from injury.I think Vukcevic needs a run out as he could be a star in this league.

He has achieved alot with very little money at MK-D AND he is an ex-Rovers coach so knows his way round our club.
Hi JC I am intotal agreement as he looks the part and am sure he will knock our lot into better shape I also think Hill would be worth a punt but no doubt we will have to wait until Christmas before this lot make a move.

What Black says there is unbelievable! I've never been involved in professional football but it sounds completely ridiculous to me that a manager or coach or anyone involved with selecting or training a team does not know the full potential of every single one of their players. I mean surely they play practice games and try players in different positions?

I am flabbergasted that Black will have to watch Vukcevic on TV to see whether he can play in centre midfield! RIDICULOUS!!!!

So you've had a player for 2 years and didn't think to try him in his natural position? WOW, I had no idea how inept we actually were behind the scenes, yet more testament to Keans managerial qualities. If I were Venkys and i'd spent money on a player i'd be looking for the management team to seriously test thier capabilities or i'd be looking to lay off the management team.

How come we are still being linked with, Solskjar, Holloway & Sherwood when 2 of them have come out and said no way thier coming and one of them is so unlikely that the fans are posting articles about the laughability of an approach.

We are approaching Keith Hill and Karl Robinson? When Schuster and Clemente have been linked? Or is this just more bull from the Venkys PR machine. Clemente & Schuster probably only linked because they cant speak english so they cant refute the claims like the other managers have done.

Why are we looking in lower leagues for a manager when we should be searching international leagues for rising stars who are proving themselves at a top european level?

Hill is far superior to be mentioned in the same vein as Kean.

Any manager at Barnsley is under huge financal pressures, and his recruitment has been pretty sound from what I am aware. They were very impressive against rovers this year, pressing high up the pitch with unbelievable stamina & good control of the ball. He has a very below par team there and is doing a hell of a job.. give him the resources our squad holds and he could do very well. Certainly should be on the shortlist, certainly over the inexperienced Sherwood or Shearer for me.
Can't believe there are people on here still calling for an inexperienced manager such as Sherwood. Let him go and learn somewhere else rather than risk failing at here. Jobs for the boys will never work.

I would disagree, I don't think (as you mention) we have a target man so i would say playing down the wings would be a waste of time, i'd prefer a more central approach during attack since we have flair & Rhodes as our main selling points.

What's Rhodes if he isn't a target man? He thrives off chances and half-chances. If the ball isn't coming into the box he won't score. The only threats against Wolves were from Olssen and Nunez from crosses of sorts. Murphy had plenty of chances to pass it to the wings. Orr and Olssen were often available moving forward. But he didn't, he passed back instead and I don't remember a good forward ball from him the whole game. It seemed like he had been told to not lose the ball, which he did except for the goal. But what is the point if you don't lose the ball but keep passing it back or giving it to a team mate who is marked? Olssen showed a couple of times how he could slip past the first defender and then chase and cross, but Murphy never gave him a chance to do so. Orr is another story...

Anyway, Vukcevic would be more of a threat going forward and if he can play in the centre then I'd swap him for Murphy straight away and put Ribeiro in. Trouble is it might make no difference at all if they are all unfit.

At the beginning of this season Colin KR looked pretty effective with his back to goal wheras Rhodes seems to like a ball to run onto. Olssen and Nunes have both shown they can beat a man out wide and get a cross in. Gomes, Rochina can offer creative support to a main striker.

I believe we have players who can do the job going forward, the problem is we are overrun in midfield which means we are scared to commit men forward and spend too much time defending our own last third.

Hill is far superior to be mentioned in the same vein as Kean. He has inherited a poor team, kept them afloat over the seasons at Barnsley, compound with some very impressive performances this season. Any manager at Barnsley is under huge financal pressures, and his recruitment has been pretty sound from what I am aware. They were very impressive against rovers this year, pressing high up the pitch with unbelievable stamina & good control of the ball. He has a very below par team there and is doing a hell of a job.. give him the resources our squad holds and he could do very well. Certainly should be on the shortlist, certainly over the inexperienced Sherwood or Shearer for me.
Nice to see that there are some Rovers' fans who are grounded in realism and can see the bigger picture. Remember also Keith Hill's notable work at Rochdale, a club which rose to a near record high for them, and have plummeted since he and Flicker left. Real winning football.

He has achieved alot with very little money at MK-D AND he is an ex-Rovers coach so knows his way round our club.
I agree... my preferred choice would be Holloway however an alternative would be Robinson. I want a hungry individual who will a) teach our team how to defend b) attack and create chances for Rhodes c) get rid of all the dead wood from our squad.
Holloway is not the man. I cant understand why so many think he is. Took Blackpool up spent a whole season boring the pants off skysport viewers with his views on national affairs, weather crisis, threats to resign that he then backs down from, Blackpool relegated, he has a blind spot when it comes to defending and he has already criticised Venkys as owners. It would never work.

Who would you guys want? Sherwood or Black? Because it seems to me that those are the only 2 options at the moment. Clemente and Schuster are not even mentioned anymore. And Ole doesn't want it.

The fact that some people are saying that they would still boycott if Sherwood is appointed is beyond me. Kean is gone. And the fact that Spurs (a much higher regarded club at the moment, as well as a far better run club than Rovers at the moment) hold him in such a high regard must say something about the guy.

It would be a welcome sight to see him managing Blackburn Rovers. The ways he could motivate the players about winning the league in that same dressing room are tools no other manager could use.

Time to stop moaning and support the team.

I still cannot see anyone really wanting the manager's job, outside of Brockall. If I was a Sherwood or a Shearer and was asking advice from the likes of a Rednapp or a Sir Alex, that advice would be to walk away and not to touch the job!
I question if we have any sincere applicants at all who would work with Venkys?
If we do, who's deciding? Venkys who have not the first idea of how to run a proper football club? A Malysian football pundit? (that's like me being Technical Director of Rugby Football at Twickenham, in that I love the game but actually haven't got a clue what they do except beat each other up). A man promoted from selling matchday programmes and another who almost broke PNE? For God's sake!
I would still also ask who is actually controlling matters at Ewood. Who sanctioned Murphy's 2yr deal at 35, Gomes' at 36 and Etuhu's 4yr deal at 31? Ashley Cole can't get more than one year at Chelsea ffs!
The club is seen as a joke and derided throughout the British game, witness journos on Sunday supplement about Holloway "Blackburn might need Holloway but he certainly doesn't need Blackburn", before going on to say we were an example of how not to run a football club, JW etc etc etc

Agreed. The papers do seem to suggest we are closing in on Sherwood. If it is him, everyone should get behind him and give him the best chance of success. There's no guarantee with any of them that it would work out.

To be honest, mid-table, Kean already gone, most of the season to go and a new manager coming at least now we've got some real hope.

Bang on the money there Bankok. What's happened is because that rhino skinned filth bag Kean has been gone for 3 weeks, it's given fans to much time discuss who and why should be next manager. If they'd got fingers from up their a55holes and appointed someone quicker, we wouldn't have had time to debate who we all want as manager and would've just been happy that Kean had gone and we could look to a brighter future. I realise it's a big decision but the reason it's taking so long is more than likely due to the absolute jokers that own Rovers. To be honest Sherwood wouldn't be my first choice but he's a million times better than Kean so will get my absolute support. I genuinely believe we have one of the best squads in that league and under any footballing coach or manager with any pedigree or experience we will bounce back, whether it's play offs or automatic........

Because when I read that Black has discovered an attacking midfielder I can only fear that this will limit the lad's options - what with Black's penchant for playing 5 across the back or stringing 5 midfielders across the middle.

That he could have been at the club so long and Black cheerfully professes to know so little about him speaks volumes for his coaching talent.

Bang on the money there Bankok. What's happened is because that rhino skinned filth bag Kean has been gone for 3 weeks, it's given fans to much time discuss who and why should be next manager. If they'd got fingers from up their a55holes and appointed someone quicker, we wouldn't have had time to debate who we all want as manager and would've just been happy that Kean had gone and we could look to a brighter future. I realise it's a big decision but the reason it's taking so long is more than likely due to the absolute jokers that own Rovers. To be honest Sherwood wouldn't be my first choice but he's a million times better than Kean so will get my absolute support. I genuinely believe we have one of the best squads in that league and under any footballing coach or manager with any pedigree or experience we will bounce back, whether it's play offs or automatic........
"we wouldn't have had time to debate who we all want as manager "

And you say it like that's a GOOD thing. Rushing headlong into some half baked idea.

In Venkys case it probably is though. All the evidence suggests when they have time to think they get it wrong.

Exactly, part of the plan, they must be cursing the fact that he's earned 2 points out of 9 and so having to wait longer. One of their men,Black from the same regime we've had since the owners took over. I bet K*an never sues the club, another red herring to throw the fans off the scent.

Why the hell has it taken three weeks nearly and still no appointment.

This club is still being run in a disgraceful manner. The only positive thing I can think they've done is spend (already accumulated sale fees) on Rhodes but that's because they think his value will appreciate.

You would of thought we'd have heard from the Director Of Comms when three weeks ago one of the most significant events that can happen at a football club occurred with the manager "resigning".

It goes on and on and on............

Whats this about Simon getting a second chance. Did he ever have a first chance? Did I blink and miss something?

Black is going to be the next manager, they are just waiting for him to win a game or two.

He is ideal for Venky's. Cheap and a yes man. And will not ask for money to spend or complain 'cus he will know he will get sacked if he does.

Onwards and downwards, the farce continues, hear we come League 1.

There is no hope utill the Venky's head back home and we can start to rebuild again.

Hill is far superior to be mentioned in the same vein as Kean. He has inherited a poor team, kept them afloat over the seasons at Barnsley, compound with some very impressive performances this season. Any manager at Barnsley is under huge financal pressures, and his recruitment has been pretty sound from what I am aware. They were very impressive against rovers this year, pressing high up the pitch with unbelievable stamina & good control of the ball. He has a very below par team there and is doing a hell of a job.. give him the resources our squad holds and he could do very well. Certainly should be on the shortlist, certainly over the inexperienced Sherwood or Shearer for me.
You say Keith Hill inherited a poor team but to be fair to Steve Kean, so did he.

What was he supposed to do?

And of course it didn't help with the fans getting on the players backs - but of course no-one could possibly suggest that it's your own fault you find yourselves in this mess.

Holloway is not the man. I cant understand why so many think he is.

Hill is far superior to be mentioned in the same vein as Kean. He has inherited a poor team, kept them afloat over the seasons at Barnsley, compound with some very impressive performances this season. Any manager at Barnsley is under huge financal pressures, and his recruitment has been pretty sound from what I am aware. They were very impressive against rovers this year, pressing high up the pitch with unbelievable stamina & good control of the ball. He has a very below par team there and is doing a hell of a job.. give him the resources our squad holds and he could do very well. Certainly should be on the shortlist, certainly over the inexperienced Sherwood or Shearer for me.
You say Keith Hill inherited a poor team but to be fair to Steve Kean, so did he.

What was he supposed to do?

And of course it didn't help with the fans getting on the players backs - but of course no-one could possibly suggest that it's your own fault you find yourselves in this mess.
How many transfer windows did Kitman need in order to be able to build his team of worldbeaters then ?

The fact that some people are saying that they would still boycott if Sherwood is appointed is beyond me. Kean is gone. And the fact that Spurs (a much higher regarded club at the moment, as well as a far better run club than Rovers at the moment) hold him in such a high regard must say something about the guy.

It would be a welcome sight to see him managing Blackburn Rovers. The ways he could motivate the players about winning the league in that same dressing room are tools no other manager could use.

Time to stop moaning and support the team.
Agreed. The papers do seem to suggest we are closing in on Sherwood. If it is him, everyone should get behind him and give him the best chance of success. There's no guarantee with any of them that it would work out.

To be honest, mid-table, Kean already gone, most of the season to go and a new manager coming at least now we've got some real hope.
Bang on the money there Bankok. What's happened is because that rhino skinned filth bag Kean has been gone for 3 weeks, it's given fans to much time discuss who and why should be next manager. If they'd got fingers from up their a55holes and appointed someone quicker, we wouldn't have had time to debate who we all want as manager and would've just been happy that Kean had gone and we could look to a brighter future. I realise it's a big decision but the reason it's taking so long is more than likely due to the absolute jokers that own Rovers. To be honest Sherwood wouldn't be my first choice but he's a million times better than Kean so will get my absolute support. I genuinely believe we have one of the best squads in that league and under any footballing coach or manager with any pedigree or experience we will bounce back, whether it's play offs or automatic........
"we wouldn't have had time to debate who we all want as manager "

And you say it like that's a GOOD thing. Rushing headlong into some half baked idea.

In Venkys case it probably is though. All the evidence suggests when they have time to think they get it wrong.

Theres a lot happening at the moment but no sniff of any news, which is why Andy is filling his section with these space fillers.

Its frustrating I understand, but I'm thankful that in the Post-Kean era, we arent being subjected to the previous Maradona claims, instead they're just getting on with it, albeit a bit too slowly for most fans.

Its an important decision and I'd rather wait and know they got it right than another Keano appointment. For those fearing Black, it isnt going to happen. Sherwood maybe, depends on if they can get him I guess, but got ti be better than Keano or Black.

I see the Orc Colin Hendry got nicked for a domestic incident

And Alan Shearer is available and willing to take over the Blackburn job

Billy Mc Kinlay is odds on for the job

And Alan Shearer is available and willing to take over the Blackburn job

Blackburn conceded an 89th min equaliser on Saturday

And Alan Shearer is available and willing to take over the Blackburn job

Steve Kean announces he is suing for £1.5. (He WILL win)

And Alan Shearer is available and willing to take over the Blackburn job

So everything is rosy at Ewood.

(PS: Alan Shearer wants a job you know?)
