Shebby Singh: Is adamant owners want stability at the club

Michael Appleton was removed from the Ewood Park hotseat after just 67 days, joining Henning Berg and Steve Kean in being shown the door by owners Venky's this campaign.

But Singh has told fans they remain committed to turning the club's fortunes around.

"I would like to assure the fans that everything possible is being done to make the club enjoy long-term stability," Singh told BBC Sport.

"In football, you have to set long-term plans. Unfortunately, situations sometimes happen where you have managers with differing philosophies and this can cause the transition period to take longer than expected.

"We all know the transition period will end very soon and the fans will start enjoying their football again.

"The ambition is to get the club back on its feet and achieve what all club owners would like to achieve. So you can take it from me the owners are 100 per cent committed."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
