Shot of him loading his car with a couple of bags which they said was earlier this evening leaving Bloomers.

It was only about back o 5 when he left. Cameras were still there but don't know if they are now. Koko probably refused to speak to them.

From The Sporting Life...

Blackburn have moved a step closer to naming their third manager this season after Blackpool gave them permission to open talks with Michael Appleton.

Rovers made an official approach to their npower Championship counterparts on Wednesday night and former Portsmouth boss Appleton, who only took the reins at Bloomfield Road on November 7, now appears set to succeed Henning Berg at Ewood Park.



Blackpool first-team coach Ashley Westwood will also discuss terms with Rovers



A statement on Blackpool's official website, www.blackpoolfc.co.uk, read: "Blackpool FC can confirm that, following discussions with Blackburn Rovers and Michael Appleton, permission has been granted for the manager and Ashley Westwood to discuss personal terms with the club."



Following widespread reports on Thursday morning that Blackpool had rejected the initial approach for Appleton, Blackburn managing director Derek Shaw told Press Association Sport that the two clubs remained "in discussions".



Appleton's scheduled 12:30pm press briefing at Pool's Squires Gate training ground was cancelled and assistant manager Steve Thompson took first-team training in his absence.



Blackburn caretaker manager Gary Bowyer told his own press conference that he expects to remain in charge for Friday night's televised clash with Wolves at Molineux.



Reserve team boss Bowyer and Rovers' head of youth Terry McPhillips have overseen three consecutive wins since Berg was sacked on December 27, following one win in 10 matches as Steve Kean's replacement.



Last week Blackburn issued a statement to confirm the duo would remain in charge until the end of January but Bowyer fully understands the altered circumstances.



He said: As far as we're aware we were told we had it until the end of January but, like I stressed last week when that announcement was made, we understand that anything can happen in that month.



"That seems to be what's happened at the moment. The club have made an approach and it's an official approach.



"To be perfectly honest, it's nothing to do with me. It's a board matter. I think it would be wrong of me to comment on a manager at another football club.



"Until we're told otherwise we'll continue to do what we've done and that's prepare the players for the game tomorrow."



Appleton has won two and drawn seven of his 11 Championship games in charge of Blackpool having taken over on the back of Ian Holloway's departure to Crystal Palace.



His last victory was a 2-0 home triumph over Blackburn in the penultimate match of Berg's reign.



The Seasiders lie 14th in the table and six points shy of the play-offs - one point and one place behind Rovers.



Blackburn's outspoken global advisor Shebby Singh appears to have been marginalised during the pursuit of Appleton, with Thursday night's official statement attributed to Shaw following a widely reported breakdown in relations between the two in the wake of Berg's sacking.

Merging threads until it's official.



Is there anyone from Blackpool (E.G. Oyston) going to appear on the radio for an explanations? We are only the fans so not holding my breath.

Now time for the explanations..... or the spin that Oyston, BSA and the Gazette will put on it.

I wouldn't have said he was gone if It wasn't official.

Appleton gains nothing from telling the truth just the same as Ollie. Karl has many meanings of the word truth to pick from so what do you expect of value to be said. The fact of the matter is Ollie left our cash rich club after just missing out on promotion and Appy joined us from the dreaded Portsmouth who are held up as the club we must be afraid of not becoming after two months to join the most turbulent club in the entire league on a short term contract.



What more do you need to know??????

I think the saying is "if you don't stand for something, U will fall for anything" MO heard the promise, saw the lies and stood by his principles and left. Is rovers the right club for him. Prob not. But at least he can spend and do things his way.

Its funny tho, only two weeks ago we all said. Ah rovers such a joke club atm....how the tables have turned.

Yep, I am actually quite embarrassed to be a Blackpool fan tonight. Not said that in years; in fact quite the opposite.

Another nail in our clubs reputation, what manager will want to come here, if the chairman has no faith in his appointments or desire to keep them.

The fans deserve answers but we will get the obvious spin by the relevant parties. I bet they are thinking of what to say as we speak.



PS. Welcome to the forum.
