Rovers loanee Michael Keane, third from left, can do nothing to stop Danny Ings netting the derby winner

First published in Sport

NEW boy Michael Keane admitted to having mixed emotions after his impressive Blackburn Rovers debut ended in the most painful of defeats.

The 21-year-old was pleased with his own performance in Sunday’s East Lancashire derby and labelled the atmosphere at Ewood Park as the best he has played in.

But the centre back’s memories were tarnished by the final result as Burnley came from behind to win 2-1 and claim victory over Rovers for the first time in 35 years.

“It was the best atmosphere I have played in,” said Keane, who will remain on loan from Manchester United until the end of the season.

“The first 10 to 15 minutes and when we scored it was unbelievable – I was buzzing.

“But at the end we were so disappointed for the fans because when they turn out like that you want to give them a positive result and something to cheer about.”

Keane, an England U21 international, lined-up alongside fit-again captain Grant Hanley in the heart of the Rovers defence.

And with Matt Kilgallon set to miss tomorrow’s home clash with Bournemouth, Keane is confident he can form a strong partnership with the Scotland star.

“Grant is really good in the air and is a strong defender whereas I am more the playing type,” said Keane, who was watched from the stands on Sunday by his United boss David Moyes.

“Obviously I didn’t get as much chance to do that as it was a feisty derby.

“But I think I defended well and hopefully the partnership can continue.”

Keane, whose display was praised by Rovers boss Gary Bowyer, is now looking to make an immediate response against Bournemouth tomorrow night.

“We were deflated and quiet but we’ve just got to pick ourselves up,” said Keane who has also had loan spells at Leicester and Derby.

“We can take things out of the performance and we’ve got to look to Wednesday’s game now to put things right.”

Keane also believes Rovers were the better team against Burnley.

He said: “I think we coped with their attacking play really well throughout the whole game except for the two set-plays.

“It is just a case of being switched on and concentrating for the whole 90 minutes.

“We also had a couple of chances to go 2-0 up but these things happen in football so we just have to get on with it.

“But it seemed to be their day because they didn't have many chances but when they did they scored.”

You can tell this to your little friends too! you have won 1 game against us in 35 years! When u have won the premier league, won a major domestic cup, spent 4/5 seasons in European leagues, spent 14 or more years in the premiership and kept a 35 yr old record, and do all this whilst we sit in the lower league, then and only then can you call yourself superior or top dogs! Until you achieve that, then please shut up and go away!

You keep living in the past if it makes you happy but it's the future that matters and the outlook for Blackburn Rovers is bleak.

But it isn't really, we have a great side coming together, one that could quite well have beaten you lot on Sunday, so the outlook is really good, anyone with a honest opinion and a knowledge of football would be able to see this.... Next season, we should keep the majority of this side, meaning we will have the rest of this season and then a full pre-season gelling together before starting the next campaign, sort of the position you started this season with. Plus (and I don't care who slates me for saying this), 6 points is still within reach of the playoffs with 39 points available for us to pick up... I'm not being optimistic because I know that we have been on and off this season, but I've seen enough in football to know that anything could happen

In the last 12 league matches between Blackburn and Burnley at Ewood Park, BURNLEY have won 7 ( SEVEN) and drawn 2 (TWO). The mighty Rovers ( for the innumerate among you ) have won 3 .

Yep you truly are World Class. Barcelona must have breathed a huge sigh of relief when you were relegated.

The last time Blackburn Rovers won the top division in English football fair and square (without a massive, unfair financial investment) was in 1914.

The last time Burnley won the top division in English football fair and square was in 1960.

When was the last time Blackburn Rovers won anything without being bankrolled by a rich sugar daddy? What have you achieved since Walkers money left you? NOTHING. You have dropped back where you came from and now find yourself in your rightful place looking up at the Clarets.

I'm afraid you are in for a big shock my friend.

"By the 2015/16 season, losses in the Championship can be no more than £5m and shareholders are only permitted to invest £3m of their own cash. Blackburn Rovers are top of the list of the clubs incurring penalties. Their announced losses for last year were £36.5 million which included £3.5m on agent's fees. As a result they will face a transfer embargo.

"Their accounts reveal a £27.3m drop in turnover and a worrying 136.1 per cent wages-to-turnover ratio for the year ending 2013, with wages totalling £36.6m. There was an operating loss of £24.3m. They also show that the club's net debt has risen from £24.5m to £54.5m. While most of the loss in turnover was due to the disappearance of Premier League payments, £1.1m was down to a sharp drop in average attendances from 22,591 to 14,997 last season. Attendances have since fallen further during the 2013/14 season.

The club’s overall debt of £54.5m consists of a £36.1m loan from Venky’s, plus a £13.7m loan from the State Bank of India, which must be repaid within 12 months. Chief executive Derek Show commented, 'We can't keep these type of losses up. It is very, very difficult. The way forward is far from clear'. The drop in commercial, media and gate revenue could see the club forced to sell £8m club record signing Jordan Rhodes in order to reduce losses."


To sum it up for you, Blackburn Rovers are up financial sh!t creek without a paddle. You are now FORCED to reduce your losses as a result of FFP, that means the likes of Jordan Rhodes, Grant Hanley, and Tom Cairney will be gone at the end of the season. However, Bowyer has prepared for this with the ingenious captures of Luke Varney, Michael Keane, and wait for it....... Liam Feeney. Still as confident?

Read it and weep no-dads, the free ride ends here....

BURNLEY have won 7 (SEVEN) and drawn 2 (TWO) of the last 12 league games at Ewood Park.

At least you clowns know your place now.

I also heard today that 23 points is the BIGGEST EVER gap between the two teams when playing in the same league. Another record broken eh.

I seem to remember Burnley fans comparing their team with Barcelona when you beat Forest. Even when we were winning titles we were never so arrogant.

You also know **** well that you will have to keep on beating us for years to come, before you get anywhere near us in regards statistics.

On this side of East Lancs we are still in shock, because we can't understand that the team who never beats us has finally done so (once) lol. I'm surprised you don't organize an open topped bus tour. Well done you.

You can tell this to your little friends too! you have won 1 game against us in 35 years! When u have won the premier league, won a major domestic cup, spent 4/5 seasons in European leagues, spent 14 or more years in the premiership and kept a 35 yr old record, and do all this whilst we sit in the lower league, then and only then can you call yourself superior or top dogs! Until you achieve that, then please shut up and go away!
It makes me laugh, the fans from across the valley make more noise on these posts than they did at Ewood. Apart from the first 10 minutes and after their goals they were, frankly, rubbish. When their team was struggling they sat and did nothing. As it happens their team did fine and whilst not deserving of a win, they certainly gave a better performance than those sat on their backsides with their mouths shut. Go practice supporting your team, you need it!

You keep living in the past if it makes you happy but it's the future that matters and the outlook for Blackburn Rovers is bleak.
But it isn't really, we have a great side coming together, one that could quite well have beaten you lot on Sunday, so the outlook is really good, anyone with a honest opinion and a knowledge of football would be able to see this.... Next season, we should keep the majority of this side, meaning we will have the rest of this season and then a full pre-season gelling together before starting the next campaign, sort of the position you started this season with. Plus (and I don't care who slates me for saying this), 6 points is still within reach of the playoffs with 39 points available for us to pick up... I'm not being optimistic because I know that we have been on and off this season, but I've seen enough in football to know that anything could happen
I'm afraid you are in for a big shock my friend.

"By the 2015/16 season, losses in the Championship can be no more than £5m and shareholders are only permitted to invest £3m of their own cash. Blackburn Rovers are top of the list of the clubs incurring penalties. Their announced losses for last year were £36.5 million which included £3.5m on agent's fees. As a result they will face a transfer embargo.

"Their accounts reveal a £27.3m drop in turnover and a worrying 136.1 per cent wages-to-turnover ratio for the year ending 2013, with wages totalling £36.6m. There was an operating loss of £24.3m. They also show that the club's net debt has risen from £24.5m to £54.5m. While most of the loss in turnover was due to the disappearance of Premier League payments, £1.1m was down to a sharp drop in average attendances from 22,591 to 14,997 last season. Attendances have since fallen further during the 2013/14 season.

The club’s overall debt of £54.5m consists of a £36.1m loan from Venky’s, plus a £13.7m loan from the State Bank of India, which must be repaid within 12 months. Chief executive Derek Show commented, 'We can't keep these type of losses up. It is very, very difficult. The way forward is far from clear'. The drop in commercial, media and gate revenue could see the club forced to sell £8m club record signing Jordan Rhodes in order to reduce losses."


To sum it up for you, Blackburn Rovers are up financial sh!t creek without a paddle. You are now FORCED to reduce your losses as a result of FFP, that means the likes of Jordan Rhodes, Grant Hanley, and Tom Cairney will be gone at the end of the season. However, Bowyer has prepared for this with the ingenious captures of Luke Varney, Michael Keane, and wait for it....... Liam Feeney. Still as confident?

The last time Blackburn Rovers won the top division in English football fair and square (without a massive, unfair financial investment) was in 1914.

The last time Burnley won the top division in English football fair and square was in 1960.

When was the last time Blackburn Rovers won anything without being bankrolled by a rich sugar daddy? What have you achieved since Walkers money left you? NOTHING. You have dropped back where you came from and now find yourself in your rightful place looking up at the Clarets.

23 points.
5 years.
Interestingly you do know the United squad that year cost more to assemble than the Blackburn squad. Mainly due to the Andy Cole transfer but still never let facts get in the way.

Got to agree, "sing when you're winning" never applied more aptly to any teams fans than it did to Scumley on sunday.

As for the lad Keane, what a babtism of fire for him, and he came through with flying colours. He will be a great addition to the team/squad until the end of the season. Class act.

Yep you truly are World Class. Barcelona must have breathed a huge sigh of relief when you were relegated.
We have an history, you are a total moron.

I know which I would prefer to be because your tin pot club with it's 11,000 real fans and cowshed ground will never, ever get your hands on the PL title or have a chance of winning anything of note.

If you do go up this year it will be as second best.

Think about that.

There are no trophies for second best, you may as well be 10th, 11th or whatever as far as history is concerned, no-one remembers second best.

Having competed in sport all my life I can tell you that second best simply isn't acceptable.

On the contrary, as soon as I could be I was on here as promised congratulating real Burnley fans and wishing them and their club well.

You see, when you have seen someone you love, or a friend die of cancer, or you are watching someone struggle to beat it, at the moment one person I know appears to have beaten it, another is struggling to do so, it sort of puts life into perspective, a perspective that morons like you don't appreciate until it happens to you.

While I love Rovers and will continue to support them through thick and thing it isn't a life or death thing for me, it's just a game.

I would have loved nothing better than to beat you on Sunday, but when that final whistle blew on Sunday I stayed, applauded both sets of players, them bemoaned the loss of three points.

And in reality that is all it really meant to me.

While most of the loss in turnover was due to the disappearance of Premier League payments, £1.1m was down to a sharp drop in average attendances from 22,591 to 14,997 last season. Attendances have since fallen further during the 2013/14 season.

The club’s overall debt of £54.5m consists of a £36.1m loan from Venky’s, plus a £13.7m loan from the State Bank of India, which must be repaid within 12 months. Chief executive Derek Show commented, 'We can't keep these type of losses up. It is very, very difficult. The way forward is far from clear'. The drop in commercial, media and gate revenue could see the club forced to sell £8m club record signing Jordan Rhodes in order to reduce losses."


To sum it up for you, Blackburn Rovers are up financial sh!t creek without a paddle. You are now FORCED to reduce your losses as a result of FFP, that means the likes of Jordan Rhodes, Grant Hanley, and Tom Cairney will be gone at the end of the season. However, Bowyer has prepared for this with the ingenious captures of Luke Varney, Michael Keane, and wait for it....... Liam Feeney. Still as confident?

Read it and weep no-dads, the free ride ends here....
Well Baldric, another post long on distortion and short on fact. Ok some fact but so slanted as to be meaningless.
We never had a free ride, Jacks money facilitated an attempt on the title, the staff had to work for it and the players WON it you puleing idiot
Now stop trying to convince us all that the world is flat and that Burnley are a football club.
FFP, DILLIGAF
ROVERS fans put their shift in long before 95, we had our wilderness years.
But Jack gave us something money could not buy, the Premiership and Pride
You are buzzing on one win in 35 years.
We will always know how it felt to be the BEST TEAM in the land, officially. Fact not fantasy. Unlike your deluded rambling
Nothing deluded about it my friend. All solid fact, no slant whatsoever.

Your years in the wilderness are only just beginning Mungo. The transfer embargo coming your way like a steam train next season represents the start of your descent into lower league football.

We know all about that place, we've been there and it sucks. You'll hate every minute of it, and all the while the Clarets will be building solid foundations financially and otherwise for a sustained trip to the upper reaches of English football, and in several years time, dare I say it, a taste of European football once more. Optimistic maybe, but then again look at where we've come from. Don't ever bet against the Clarets.

I see you're now 9 points off the play-off's with a worse goal difference than all the teams in the top half. Got to admit it's not looking good for you.

Bowyer out?

When u have won the premier league, won a major domestic cup, spent 4/5 seasons in European leagues, spent 14 or more years in the premiership and kept a 35 yr old record, and do all this whilst we sit in the lower league, then and only then can you call yourself superior or top dogs!

Next season, we should keep the majority of this side, meaning we will have the rest of this season and then a full pre-season gelling together before starting the next campaign, sort of the position you started this season with. Plus (and I don't care who slates me for saying this), 6 points is still within reach of the playoffs with 39 points available for us to pick up... I'm not being optimistic because I know that we have been on and off this season, but I've seen enough in football to know that anything could happen[/p][/quote]I'm afraid you are in for a big shock my friend. "By the 2015/16 season, losses in the Championship can be no more than £5m and shareholders are only permitted to invest £3m of their own cash. Blackburn Rovers are top of the list of the clubs incurring penalties. Their announced losses for last year were £36.5 million which included £3.5m on agent's fees. As a result they will face a transfer embargo.

"your years of wilderness are only just beginning"
Nice quote...we've just spent 13 years in the Premier League and will doubtless get there again within 2 or 3 years.
Where have you been while we have been spending our longest ever spell in the top flight?
In summary, our "years of wilderness", whatever they will be, will be still higher up the ladder than you have been over the last 13 years!
Things might not be as good as they were for Rovers, but we'll always be better than you.
