Paul Ince gone and within hours a new appointment, the management merry-go-round spins viciously fast!
Blackburn Rovers have appointed Sam Allardyce as their new manager on a three-year contract.
Rovers sacked Paul Ince on Tuesday and made it clear they wanted a new boss at the helm for Saturday’s home game against Stoke.
Allardyce has been out of work since he was dismissed as manager of Newcastle in January.
Graeme Souness had also been linked with the job but had already ruled himself out of the running.

Granted Big Sam is not known for playing football in a graceful fashion but if a team needs a grinder, a manager who can push his average players to bigger and better things then Allardyce could be that person. At least it’s not Souness!
So Rovers fans, what do you think? Good move or bad blunder?
