Picking arguments with posters on this forum, I said I wasn't interested in a pointless debate as it's not going to get us anywhere. I could respond to your post but what is the point?

I still speak to a few users who have since left this forum specifically because of your persistence with picking arguments and needlessly pulling apart people's posts.

I'm curious as to why you bother and what it is you get out of it? :shrug:
I don't pick arguments, I just question bullshit. And wasn't the only one. I wonder why people bother posting on a forum when as soon as their opinion gets questioned they have a tantrum.

"You could respond, but what's the point".... you were perfectly happy to respond whilst the evidence of your nonsense wasn't laid out in front of you. As soon as that happens, you resort to hissy fits. And yet accuse others of being childish.

Anyway, looks like JDT would be, on the face of it, a very promising appointment.

Hard to instantly find fault with this. But I'm sure someone will manage it in short order :D

Looks good on paper. I can’t really fault this - or the DOF appointment. They both make sense.

I’m quite exited about the next couple of seasons now.

So am I, and that’s what’s worrying me :lol:

I was by no means Mowbray out, but I’ll admit having a new coach with new ideas does bring a wave of excitement with it.

Yeah I'm really happy with the appointment, feels like a considered decision to continue trying to take the club forward along with the other appointments.

DoF in place and with Tomasson comes Reijinerse as his assistant and Rosen as a Performance Director working alongside our coaching team.

Only issue is that Jon Dahl Tomasson's Blue and White Army is quite a mouthful :lol:

The below is really great to read:

Rovers CEO Steve Waggott said: “It has been a long process, but we are really pleased to have eventually secured the services of such a young and ambitious coach in Jon.

“His work around developing players, along with demanding a culture of giving everything to the club, is exactly what we need at this juncture.

“His passion, purpose and humility shone through in his interviews and we obviously have high hopes that he will build on the platform that has been established over the last five years.

“Jon will work closely with Gregg Broughton, myself and the Board in what we all hope will be an exciting chapter in the club’s history.”

Rovers’ Director of Football, Gregg Broughton, added: "In Jon Dahl Thomasson, we have been able to recruit a Head Coach who fits perfectly with the direction that Blackburn Rovers wants to go in. Whilst considering how we want to build the club, how we want our teams to play and how we want to recruit and develop players, Jon was the standout candidate.

“As a coach with the Danish national team, he was part of a team that were unbeaten for two years and then as Head Coach of Malmo, Jon led the club to successive league titles and became only the fourth Swedish team this century to qualify for the groups stages of the Champions League. This on-field success was achieved whilst playing an aggressive, offensive style of football, giving young players opportunities and building clear development frameworks for players.

“It was a long and thorough process, involving lots of research and background checks, and we would like to thank all of the supporters, players and staff for their patience during this period. We are excited about developing the Owners’ vision on the pitch and we look forward to building on the solid foundations laid by Tony Mowbray.”
