Burnley fan applies for Blackburn Rovers job – and gets shortlisted

Posted by - March 26, 2013 - Blackburn Rovers, Burnley

When Burnley fan James McDonagh cheekily applied for the Blackburn Rovers, he probably thought that a pen-pusher at Ewood Park might raise an eyebrow and have a giggle when it was opened.

However, James received an email back from the club indicating that he had been shortlisted for the role!

McDonagh told the Sun: “They’re a bit of a joke club at the minute and I thought I could probably do better than their last few appointments. I wasn’t expecting to get shortlisted but Blackburn’s owners are known for their barmy decisions.”

McDonagh promised to achieve back-to-back relegations and said he was an avid Football Manager fan.

What a ridiculous club.
