There were rumours that Blackburn had held successful talks with Dunc over becoming manager. I think they were dismissed by the big man himself even though he has aspirations to become a manager in the future.
At the moment, we have not filled the U23's manager position after Rhino left a while back. Wouldn't it be a good idea to give DF a go managing the kids? Being a coach for the senior squad is all well and good but being in control of team selection, tactics etc would give him more experience of looking after a team. I suppose it's not much of a comparison but Gerrard had a year managing the kids at lfc before breaking away from his club and landing some decent jobs.
I know some don't want him here, for whatever reasons, but I think we should utilise him properly while he is here. I want to see him go out and manage a club at some point and, if he does well, he will be in a better position to come back as the main man in the future if the opportunity arises.

It's really not a progression for anyone to swap assistant 1st team for reserve manager. He should have gone to Real and lapped up all that experience but he showed he's a bottler. He's not young enough to be classed as a young boss (far from it) and if he's ever going to cut his ties and take off the training wheels, he really should start applying for LG1 and Champ jobs ASAP. No wonder FL has bombed him out into the irrelevant wilderness.

Yeah, he’s a famous bottler, have a word.

I don't see how that matters tbh, brownshoes. It will be experience either way. Being a coach at first team level hasn't got him anywhere so far. The post wasn't meant for people to hate on him but each to their own I suppose.

I think he’s got to do something. He’s been in the post for several managers and we haven’t improved - I question whether he is any good as a coach or just another ‘jobs for the boys’ appointment. He was great when he played for us but going out and showing he can manage would put to bed the doubt in my mind that he is part of the problem.

I think Dunc has been a great servant to the club but if he does want to be manager one day he needs get experience of being a manager elsewhere

If he thinks he deserves a chance because he has been with us for years then I think he is mistaken. If he doesn't try elsewhere then there will always be doubts about his ambition and about his ability

I hope for his sake he takes the plunge, whether it be with Blackburn or elsewhere, and he will go with my best wishes for a true Blue.

Imagine calling a man who played through all kinds of injuries to help the club he fell in love with a bottler maybe he thought he could stay and help the club he loved instead of taking the easy option of sunny Spain with Carlo I'm actually embarrassed one of our fans can even think Dunc is a bottler.

Lanpardstheman, does it really surprise you though mate? We've got some strange fans and that's just on this forum!
BR, he must have something about him or any of the managers would have got rid before now. He did seem to help Rom but that was some time ago now. I'd also imagine he has had a hand in showing DCL how to play the position. Not that we got to see that last season. He definitely needs to be managing somewhere if he wants to be the main man himself.
BW, definitely mate. Just read that Carlo has allegedly been in touch with Blackburn to recommend him for the job. I'd like to see him give it a go and branch out. Failing that, give him the U23's job for the season.

I got the feeling he was kept as he was a bridge between players and the new managers. I’m not sure of his coaching qualities. All I know is he’s been a constant part of the club coaching staff and I’m not sure we have improved a great deal in recent years. Hence I’d like to see him head out and prove himself - I doubt he’ll get a chance here.
