Paul Dickov’s appointment as the new Rovers manager was met with a mixed reaction by supporters.
But most appear ready to give the new man a chance to impress.
Here we bring you a selection of responses from Twitter after we appealed for your thoughts on the decision.
Let us know what you think be commenting below or by tweeting @liamhodenDFP, @paulgoodwinDFP or @HayleyP_11.
Shaun Walker @DRFC4EVER: Happy with it. Looking forward to the next few months building a squad for the Championship.
Champions2013 @RTIDbelly: Not my first choice but saying all the right things and with the backing from the board and fans could be a great appointment.
Apathy Man @Janso95: It’s a very ‘meh’ appointment. He’ll get my backing regardless but, well, meh.
Scott Robertson @scottderob: Guna be tough to keep us in the division but making all the right noises already on the signings and playing fronts.
Neil Lindsay @Nenpod: Significantly underwhelmed by Dickov’s appointment but it goes without saying that he must be given a chance.
Steve Perkins @perkins67: Got to give him a chance to prove he is right man for job and trust in Comrade Ryan. Mid-table hopefully.
Alan @algregg: This time Ryan’s got it so wrong. Dickov is not the man for the job. Took Oldham on a cup run, that’s his credentials.
Lee B @RoversRTID: So so appointment. First set of signings will indicate the depth of belief in the club.
Andrew Campbell @andycampbell84: Doesn’t matter who we have in charge expectations should be to stay up. Still have one of the smallest budgets and squads.
Mike Niles @nilesmike: While relatively inexperienced, he’s shown he can get a team to perform against tough opposition. Think he can instil grit.
Shawn Whitehead @_ShawnWhitehead: Could be a shrewd appointment if he gets the owners backing and gets his squad together asap. He shows passion as well.
Debbie Evers @DrfcDebs: I’m happy to give him a chance he needs to sign quality players though. I’m going midtable
Roger @Rogers_Richardd: Trust John Ryan’s judgement more than I do mine so I’m hopeful
Rupee @Rupee92: Not the best man available. Already had the job guaranteed to him. A struggle unless we get good loans/bargains and backroom staff
Matty Walker @MattWalker596: Quite pleased with it. Really positive manager and sounds like he has big plans
Leigh Emmerson @Lemmo1988: After thinking about it I’m quite content with the appointment. Oldham played us off the park on Boxing Day #givehimachance
James Barthorpe @jamesbarthorpe: I am struggling to understand it
fub @drfcstenson: Disappointed but hopeful and will get behind the lads
