[Archived] News Article -> Coyle Interview

Recommended Posts

Wasn't Kenny's first signing Alan Wright. Perhaps its a left back thing?

Alan wright was a top division quality of player though(didn't he get a few caps, or have i imagined that?)

Edit.

Ive just checked is wiki page, i was almost right, he was called up to the england squad a couple of times under Venables but never got to play(so no caps) he did have stuart pearce and some guy called Le Saux ahead of him though.

P.s. it also says he was only 5ft4 hehe little bugger

When we signed him he was playing for Blackpool in the third or maybe fourth division, good little player though

All good shouts but I doubt we'll be in a position to offer decent wages to any of them compared to some others who will be after them. Unless the plan is to use the Rhodes cash for wages on decent loans and frees which probably wouldn't be a bad idea in the circumstances.

I'm dreaming now though !

You are pal we were never ever going to see the Rhodes cash for strengthening the side Edited by Athlete

Dread to think what wages we'll be offering these days, one extreme to the other.

Likevyou say he did have quality though and dalglish spotted it, we've already seen the best of spurr though in his first season here but he's been going downhill ever since his injuries started

Re-signing Spurr smacks of desperation, and I would've said the same if it was on Lambert's watch. We don't need a mediocre, L1 level defender to make up the numbers, the club needs to sign some actual quality.

That signing + reading between the lines of his interviews really tell a sad story. Sounds a lot like he's taken the job knowing that funds will be very limited, and that keeping afloat is the main aim.

BTW, how come no one has asked Coyle about what kind of football he wants to play? I'm not expecting a deep tactical masterclass, but something besides platitudes about "arte et labore" would be nice.

I think we all know Spurr isn't going to be the back up left back.

A major worry with this "attractive attacking football" is that we have no strikers at the club.

At least Lambert got the defence sorted(in spite of Duffys occasional blunders)!

All the evidence suggests Coyles teams cant defend. Very worrying. Still Lamberts so-called "good contacts"amounted to very little,Graham on loan excepted.

I've not gone through the whole thread, so apologies if it's already been posted, but he mentioned that Paul Fletcher is his lawyer - I did a big of googling and found the website of the firm who represents Coyle for anyone who might be interested.

Very interesting website that, especially the People tab.

I suppose its just co-incidence that IPS Law defended the Sports Entertainment and Media Group.

I found a bit more, this is in a comment left in an article regarding Chris Samba in Lancashire Telegrsph site

Chris Farnell, the managing director of IPS law (former Rovers apprentice too), was/is the lawyer for Jerome Anderson - if this article is to be believed.



ANDERSON EXPLODES

Following his ill -fated and ill-advised TV interview on Sky sports news Tuesday 10th January agent, entrepreneur and advisor to the Venkys Jerome Anderson has taken offence to all the criticism and anger that has comes his way from Blackburn Rovers supporters.

Well what did he expect, a pat on the back? For a street wise and experienced football agent Anderson is sometimes quite naïve.

So angry was Anderson that he instructed his lawyer Chris Farnell of IPS law to have all articles on Blackburn based LANCASHIRE TELEGRAPH website reporting Andersons tv appearance removed and putting a freeze on further Rovers comments.

Charles Sale of the Daily Mail reported that Anderson has taken legal action over the personal abuse directed at him by Blackburn Rovers fans campaigning against Manager Steve Kean.

Anderson who represents the beleaguered boss, went on Sky Sports news to defend his client, calling Blackburn Fans who want Kean sacked, not proper supporters.

He denied having anything to do with the departure of previous manager Sam Allardyce, the signing of his son Myles as a player on a Premiership contract or influencing club policy. Charles Sale of the Daily Mail in Saturday 14th Jan article, goes onto say that the Lancashire Telegraph facilities were to be opened with a warning that postings cannot include unproven accusations and must keep to house rules.
Anderson is considering pursuing those responsible for the most defamatory emails as he Is upset that his family were targeted, concludes Charles Sale in his article.

A notice of solicitors action to this website has been received by email form.

I cannot comment on other peoples comments left on the Lancashire Telegraph website but so far as I am concerned my article sticks strictly to football matters relating to Blackburn Rovers, no abuse was levelled at Mr Andersons family and nor would I, that would be completely out of order by myself or anybody for that matter.

As for my comments they are well documented and have been in the public domain for some considerable time. Is Mr Anderson taking solicitors action against leading sports journalists who have been critical of his handling of affairs at Blackburn Rovers, such as Michael Calvin of the Sunday Mirror and Nick Harris of the Mail on Sunday to name but two, or is he using BULLY BOY tactics against us THICK NORTHERNERS, is does make one wonder.
I can however offer an olive branch and a way forward and we can all possibly call a truce.

Given that Mr Anderson has the EARS of the Venkys why does he not speak to them on our behalf given that the Venkys (Rao family) are ignoring everyone including the leader of Blackburn and Darwin town council who has written a personal letter asking for a meeting to clarify their intentions regarding the future of Blackburn Rovers. Mr Anderson could express to the Rao family the hurt we are feeling at the demise of our great club. He could express to them the passion supporters hold for their clubs in English football. Football clubs are more than a sporting activity played once a week, peoples lives revolve around them and you cannot cast them aside at a whim, as Venkys appear to be doing without provoking the utmost anger as Mr Anderson has found to his cost.

If Jerome Anderson could get this point across to the Venkys and persuade them to back their chosen manager, Steve (the man who cannot win football matches) Kean with some substantial monies during this transfer window. Also to conclude the contractual difficulties that are preventing Michel Salgado and Jason Roberts from being available for selection, we are in relegation battle for heavens sake, these players must be made available, Anderson with his so called expertise could do this.

Jason Roberts appeared on national television, BBC2 match of the day, to say all he and Salgado wanted to do was play, the image of Blackburn Rovers penny pinching projected to the nation does not give a good impression of our current owners to say the least.

Acting in Blackburn Rovers interest would help Jerome Anderson build some bridges with Blackburn supporters.

Let us imagine for one moment that Mr Anderson had gone on TV and criticised the Liverpool fans, who protested long and loud about the Gillette and Higgs ownership of their club has not being proper supporters, or criticised the Man United supporters Green and Yellow movement protesting about the ownership of the Glazer family as not proper supporters, he would not had to worry about comments left on the local newspaper website, that would have been the least of his problems.

Let us all move on for the good of Blackburn Rovers.
Reg.

Not one of them can lie straight in bed.

I don't know who that agency are. - You mean the one you worked with for years ?

I don't have an agent I have a lawyer - The same lawyer that defends the agent who you don't know and has big connections to Rovers under the chaos of Anderson/Kean.

Now people wonder why the suspicion of virtually everything. There's more cover ups at Blackburn Rovers under Venkys & their stake holders than the politicians and their tax accounts.

The stink & sting continues.

I won't support Coyle as manager of BRFC when there is such a clear connection between him and You Know Who every which way we turn.

This feels more and more like a return to the darkest days under Kean et al.

The worst thing is, people that don't go on this site and read this very interesting information have absolutely no idea that this goes on. They just think people don't like Coyle because he was at Burnley... it's frightening really.

Depressed isn't the word at this point

I wouldn't have minded so much if he's said "I no longer have a connection with that group". I wouldn't have necessary believed him, but to say he doesn't know who they are is simply insulting the intelligence of the fanbase. Now, granted, there are many who will take him at his word and that's their prerogative - but it doesn't take too much research to come to the conclusion that statement is a total lie.

Just been reading the Telegraph comments. I want Coyle to succeed after that.

John Claret/Richard Oakley. What an embarassment. He follows Rovers more than his own team. I can't remember giving Burnley a second thought when we were in the PL.

Dingles are still obsessed with us in the main I find. I've loads of Dingle mates, and barring a few reasonable ones, so many just go on about us all the time!

They will hopefully have more to talk about when their wheels fall off, someone pockets the cash and Judas Dyche leaves for pastures new.

Nice to know that Rovers p***ed them off to the point of obsession though! :D

Just sounds like a cover up again, if he had no connection whatsoever I think he'd have said so. Easier to pretend he's never heard of them, complete denial to end the line of questioning there and then.

Interesting what he'll say next time it's brought up although it would only be at a fans forum or something because the LT won't ask and neither will R Lancs, they'll just sweep it under the carpet as well now. That's why he flat denied it I reckon.
