New Blackburn manager.

If I was a Rovers fan I'd be a tad fucked off.

Shit manager, 1 good season in 10 years doesn't make you a good manager. Was a catastrophic failure in the MLS too.

Are Blackburn in a position to do much better? Can't imagine people queueing up for the job.

A man of absolutely no loyalty either. Left Burnley mid season to go to Bolton, and now he's managing Burnley's rivals in Blackburn, with a shit spell at Wigan in between. Sounds like a right c***.

Coyle is a two-faced charlatan....somebody said he has "more faces than a town hall clock".:)

Could have been worse for Blackburn....at least Brian Laws did not get the job.

I'm gonna stick a sizeable amount of cash on him managing Blackpool at some point in the future.

They fit every one of his criteria.

I'm trying to be positive about the appointment but it's a struggle. As it's been said though, who else would want to take the job? Managing Rovers in 2016 isn't exactly a mouth-watering prospect for most managers. I'm really not looking forward to next season to be honest. But football is a fickle game so if he has a good start I'm sure the fans won't mind and neither will I.

How does this guy keep getting jobs, living off that 1 promotion at Burnley. Piss poor appointment for Blackburn, currently a poor squad and a disinterested fan base, I'm backing them for a big relegation fight next season.

Sounds similar to when we appointed Danny Wilson but worse . As it happened he actually won a lot of our fans over which was a disgrace in itself. As enjoyable as that season was until the 44th game I still never liked the c***. If I was a Blackburn fan at the minute I think I'd be giving it a miss next year.

That petition is pathetic. Whether you like an appointment or not you should at least give the manager a chance before making a decision. As Aaron said, Leicester fans weren't particularly enthused when RanierI was appointed and that worked well.

Whilst being a Blackburn fan is pretty grim these days, what's the point of moaning about every aspect of the club? Don't get me wrong. If we're a few months into the season and it's looking shite then fair play. But to be going into the season signing petitions for a manager to be sacked without a ball even bring kicked is braindead. Why bother supporting the club if you get no pleasure from it?

Coyle has a track record of relegating teams (I'm including jumping ship at Burnley and sacked at Wigan in that). If we leave it a few months into the season it might be too late to try to save ourselves this season. And we certainly can't sustain League One football.

Why bother supporting the club if you get no pleasure from it?
If any Rovers fans are getting pleasure from these past 5 years then something's wrong.

Bit of an Alex McLeish situation maybe? - managed local rivals (not very well) in the past so already on a negative note with the fans.

I just think that if the fans start the season with a negative outlook then this will manifest itself into the players. Don't get me wrong, I know that things are shit, but if fans go to matches booing and moaning from the get go then it won't motivate the players to perform well.
