OUR footballing neighbours and bitter rivals down the M65 - Blackburn Rovers - have been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Following the recent 1-1 draw with the Clarets, Rovers manager Michael Appleton was sacked, leaving the club rudderless once again. Appleton’s dismissal after 15 matches and 67 days in charge follows the previous sacking of Henning Berg (10 games and 57 days in charge) who took over from Steve Kean, who left the club only days after assurances from the board that his job was safe and the club was second in the league.
Has this upheaval had an impact on the team as they struggle at the bottom, just four points off the relegation zone? Are they plummeting into danger and face a relegation dog fight?
Do you think Rovers are heading for the drop or will the latest boardroom antics strengthen the players’ spirit and unite them in a winning push?
