BREAKING - DARREN MOORE APPOINTED AS NEW MANAGER


Recommended Posts

Great appointment imo. For once, we poach one from another side rather than getting an unemployed manager whose failed elsewhere. Has experience of League One as well if necessary

Surprised at this.

Surprised anyone would leave a job to takeover Wednesday at the moment.

Solid if unspectacular choice.

Hope he has had some assurances about resources available next season.

How are Doncaster fans taking this news?
Anyone got any Donny Rovers mates?

Why didn’t we get him when Pulis was sacked? Seems unfair on him that he has 14 games to keep us up. Surely he won’t just have signed until the end of the season?

Ridiculous appointment. Nothing against the guy personally, but what has DC seen in his career so far to suggest that he can handle this job Believe me, this will end in tears, and quickly

Best appointment in the circumstances 

 

He must be crazy 

 

Think from a purely football point of view I wouldn't have moved from Donny myself.
But I guess we have offered him a generous financial package to come. 
Cant knock anyone moving for more money though.

Sheffield Wednesday are delighted to announce the appointment of Darren Moore as our new first team manager.

 

The highly regarded 46-year-old brings an impressive CV to S6 on both sides of the white line.

 

The erstwhile defender made 654 senior appearances for a raft of clubs as a player over two decades, representing Torquay, Doncaster, Bradford, Portsmouth, West Brom, Derby, Barnsley and Burton.

He also posted three caps on the international stage for Jamaica.

 

Moore moved into management in April 2018 with the Baggies on a caretaker basis and came close to saving his new charges from Premier League relegation against all the odds having taken the reins 10 points from safety.

 

He earned the Premier League Manager of the Month accolade for April along the way.

 

Moore was appointed permanently in May 2018 with the aim of leading West Brom back to the top tier from the Championship. With that remit on course, he somewhat surprisingly departed the following March with the Baggies in fourth place.

 

The Birmingham product moved to Doncaster in July 2019 and after laying firm foundations at the Keepmoat Stadium saw Rovers’ promotion ambitions halted by the curtailment of the League One season. Doncaster were six points shy of the play-offs with a game in hand.

 

This time around, Rovers are ensconced in the play-off spots, again having played less games than their rivals.

 

Moore now joins the Owls with immediate effect and will be in charge for Wednesday night’s Championship clash with Rotherham at Hillsborough.

 

Welcome to Hillsborough, Darren!

Suppose on the unfair aspect, he didnt have to take the role
