Rowett: Handed permanent role

Rowett, previously assistant manager, took temporary charge alongside Kevin Poole after Paul Peschisolido was sacked in mid-March on the back of a dire 14-match run without victory.

He broke that unwanted sequence just 10 days later before going on to win three and draw two of the club's final 10 league games to secure Football League survival, albeit losing five including a 7-1 mauling at Bristol Rovers.

Burton chairman Ben Robinson told the club's official website: "I'm very pleased to be able to announce Gary Rowett as our new manager.

"Gary took over at a difficult time for the club after a long string of poor results and he has been able to achieve safety in the Football League, which was the primary aim.

"We now look forward to a summer where I am sure the necessary changes will be made as we plan for the upcoming 2012/13 season.

"I have been impressed by Gary both during his time as assistant and caretaker manager and I have every faith he will prove to be a success as the manager of Burton Albion on a full-time basis."

Rowett, a former defender, played 47 games for the Brewers before returning to the club as assistant manager to Peschisolido in 2009.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
