Is Sam Allardyce the right man for Blackburn?

Paul Ince was dismissed by Blackburn Rovers and quickly replaced by former Bolton and Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce.

Paul Ince was dismissed by Blackburn Rovers following the club's disappointing start to the English Premier League season and quickly replaced by former Bolton and Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce. The Blackburn board met on Monday to discuss the future of the former Macclesfield and MK Dons boss, who guided Rovers to just three wins in 17 league games since his appointment in June. Should Blackburn have given Paul Ince more time, after only five months in charge? Or is Sam Allardyce the perfect choice to steady the ship at Ewood Park?
