Dickov: Focused on Latics

Reports on the Daily Telegraph website overnight claimed Dickov and former Rovers team-mate Garry Flitcroft had emerged as candidates to succeed Steve Kean as the Championship club's hierarchy prepares to draw up their shortlist on Thursday.

Dickov, who is in his third season at the helm at Boundary Park, suggested the speculation might be a result of his presence at Blackburn's Brockhall training complex on Wednesday for a reserve game between the two clubs.

After the diminutive former Manchester City striker joked the broadsheet Telegraph was "too big for me", he dismissed talk of a move to Ewood Park.

"That's the first I've heard of it," he said.

"Maybe they've put two and two together and got five because I was at Brockhall yesterday, I don't know."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
