Lancashire Telegraph comment: End this absurd farce now

THE Lancashire Telegraph is today calling for Venky’s to end the farce surrounding Blackburn Rovers by taking decisive and immediate action on Steve Kean’s managerial future.

The current uncertainty hanging over the Ewood Park outfit has again turned this once proud club into a laughing stock and it simply cannot go on any longer.

Rovers’ owners need to make a clear statement on whether Kean is going to continue as their manager today, before the club’s Premier League promotion aspirations are significantly damaged.

Their decision should be a straightforward one as well with a large section of supporters making it clear they will not accept Kean as their manager.

A boycott is already being planned for Rovers’ next home game against Wolves while Ewood has been receiving phone calls from irate fans asking for season ticket refunds this week.

Home crowds are already significantly down this season, despite their lofty Championship position, with the supporters – Rovers’ customers – voting with their feet.

This has gone way beyond Steve Kean’s abilities as a manager. This is now an objective matter that sees the club unable to go forward with the manager remaining at the helm.

For the good of the club, Venky’s need to end this circus now by taking the manager out of a situation that has become untenable.

The longer this dithering and dallying goes on, the more the owners look like a management team that can’t manage. More importantly, this illogical delay is grossly unfair to the fans, the players and yes, even to Steve Kean.

You use the word "circus" ion this comment, I think ASYLUM is far more appropriate, especially with these lunatics, chief amongst them Shebby Singh, now running the show. Never can there have been a more incompetent bunch of idiots running any football club anywhere in the world. P*ss up and brewery is a mild way of describing the situation!

Until ALL these people are confined to history, I cannot see OUR club moving forward. For the good of the club, Venky's please go, and take the incompetents, the Three Stooges with you. The longer this situation continues, the more credence asset stripping will have.

SHYSTERS GET OUT OF OUR CLUB

Whilst i hate Kean and all he stands for the Venky's should be held accountable for the farce we now find ourselves in. How the hell they have manged to run a successful business in India is beyond me as judging by the way they have run our football club they appear to be totally useless and incompetent fools. They should look to sell the club at the earliest opportunity and let us try and get the club back to some kind of normality. These bl**dy clowns have made BRFC the laughing stock of the football league. And before people say they are now investing, weigh up the players sold against what we have spent on new players and you will see they have invested zero really. Venky's should go to hell and never come back.

Venkys have never publically backed Kean. Never made a statement in supprt of him since the initial days when Desai grossly over represented his abilities. The fans dont want him, despite results (which I expect to slide anyway) he is clueless at organising the team. We've only picked up points by scoring high. That cannot continue. In this now damaging situation, they still don't make a statement of support for him. Back him or sack him and then sort yourselves out Venkys. Shambolic management. They've set us back years and I fear the expected mass return of fans will now not happen

Get him sacked and get an experienced man in. With the players we have and some strenghening in defence we can get promoted. I have never thought this before in 50 years as a supporter, but defeat against Charlton may not be such a bad thing? No matter what happens we must all turn up for any games against burnley, these are games we MUST win! it will show the football world, kean and venky's what the supporters are really all about.

i think this is really the water shed moment for the club, we stand at a cross roads now, one of which should take us back to the premiership and another could potentially see us slip into everlasting championship or below football.

Regardless of anyones views on Mr Keans ability to manage ( Personally would not let him near my under 9s team), the impact on keeping this man in charge at the club is highly damaging, both on a buisness and footballing level, the decision to leave Steve Kean in charge has no logical argument, he is delivering nothing of note on the pitch and there is almost an all out war amongst long term Blackburn fans that continues to damage the club.

One decision changes everything here , remove steve Kean and bring in fresh management, the squad is strong enough to storm this league, the fans begin to come back,revenues increase, the atmosphere around the club improves, sponsors come back to the club , we all go nuts when we get promoted and I can stop using valuable work time to come on here and comment about the obvious.

I understand a boycott is hard for some people to do. Season tickets are bought because the team is loved and the reasoning is that to not go to a game for which hard earned cash has been spent on seems a waste. I can sympathize masively with this view. We like to watch the players and by attending a game are we supporting them and yet supporting the regime? I think not, you can watch the game and not support the owners.
However, there comes a time when a huge message simply has to be sent. And that time is Wolves at home Saturday week. Surely a nigh on total boycott would get the message across. Maybe an attendance around the 3,000 mark? Obviously some people will go to a match come hell or high water. Well the high water is here, it's all around us. A boycott maybe the case of I will if you will, or maybe some folk just can't see what purpose a mass boycott serves.
So how about this...against Wolves we really send the message, enough is enough. Even go to the ground if you wish but not go in. If it doesn't work, then we move on and think again. Buy really, what have we got to lose, one game out of 23 on your season ticket? Surely that is worth it to help save this great club we all love and cherish. Imagine the coverage an attendance around 3,000 would get. Apparently 13,000 doesn't cover the wages of Rhodes, Murphy and Ethuhu. So lose 10,000 from that and even our dunderheaded owners must take notice.

Why is Sherwood in the frame? Yes he was a hero when he won the Premiership but I lost all respect for him when he forced his way out of the club to go to Spurs. Plus he has zero, nada, nil management experience!!!! Have the Venkys not realised that a half decent coach (and I am not saying Kean was) does not a great manager make?!?! Has Sherwood ever even played in the Championship? We need an experienced manager who will get us organised, disciplined and who knows the division. My vote... Simon Grayson. He's no nonsense and he doesn't make excuses and he knows what it takes to get a team promoted. And he played for us last time we were in this league. He could be our new "Graeme Souness".

Couple of things strike me reading everything I can on Rovers these past 18 months. Firstly Kean going is just part one, its very important we get the right man to follow, (Curbishley would be my choice), and second just how badly do the Walker family come out of all this? They met these people and listened to them and then gave them our football club, a club that their Jack had loved and nurtured.

END THIS FARCE
Monday National newspapers were full of the news that Steve Kean was about to be sacked for not achieving 16 points from a possible 21 in Rovers opening 7 games.
I don’t believe a word of it – Monday came and went and Kean is still here with a statement from Ewood Park saying “his position is being monitored”.
What is to monitor? The man has to go.
The points total is a smoke screen. Kean was never set a total of 16 points, the 14 he has accumulated and a third placed position in the League table are acceptable at this stage of the season.
I know that and the Ewood hierarchy know that.
The reason they want rid of Kean, and they do, is they have been rocked to the core by the attendances at Rovers opening league games.
In their arrogance they never envisaged such a large drop in support and revenue.
The supporters have spoken; they are not coming and will not return whilst Kean is there.
You can only ignore the fans for so long, as Mrs Anuradha (I like to be entertained) Desai has done. She has ignored the fans for too long and now they have gone.
PANIC HAS SET IN AT EWOOD PARK.
Season ticket sales are at a all-time low, attendances are at a all-time low. There is no sponsorship of any substance and cooperate hospitality is almost none existent.
ROVERS ARE A CLUB IN FREE FALL.
Newly appointed directors, Derek Shaw, Paul Agnew, and Shebby Singh now fear for their jobs as Mrs Desai (pic above) considers cost saving costs.
So no smoke screen please about point targets, the issue is all about finance and the problem is Kean and he has to go.
WHAT IS THERE TO MONITOR.

KEAN REFUSES TO BUDGE
Steve Kean is refusing to go quietly – as Rovers advisor Shebby Singh, (pic above) tries to talk him into taking a behind the scenes job.
The Blackburn boss took training yesterday despite the latest attempt to oust him.
Singh is planning to offer Kean a lesser post at the Rovers in a bid to avoid giving him a lump sum pay-off.
Kean would be due around £500,000 in compensation if sacked. Kean is determined to cling onto his £1.3 million pound per annum job or make the Venky’s pay him full compensation for dismissal.
Cash strapped Venky’s are hesitating over a compensation package hence Kean’s continued survival much to Singh’s frustration. It could be a war of wills, who goes first Kean or arch enemy Singh.

Quite apart from all his well documented difficiences, how can Kean possibley have any motivation any longer to give his best for the club, given the level of fan hatred of him. Why should he put himself out when nothing he can do can possibley turn around the fans attitued towards him. There is nothing in the job for him now but the money ( and loads of it). He's lost all semblance of pride and cannot possibly motivate his team when he can't even motivate himself. Surely Venkys you must realise you are now paying him for treading water.

He just has to put in a few more 'shifts' and a nice fat cheque (on top of all the others awaits!!!).

Much like a lottery win to you and me.

I very much doubt he will be having a good old sob in the lavs.

I could summon up some mighty dynamic 'motivation' for the monies he has and is going to be bestowed.

His will make my and your bank balances look fairly weak in comparison (well mine at least).

I cant think of one rovers fan who wants Kean to stay, but at the end of the day the real problem is VENKYS and their inability to make the decisions that matter, when they are needed, Kean should have gone at worst at the end of last season (in honesty the mid point of last season), but for some reason maybe pride Venkys just wont make the call. I strongly think that if this situation continues much longer, the approach of the fans must change from KEAN OUT - to VENKYS OUT.

Who oh why as there not been an investigation by the FA/Premier league (last season) on who actually owns the club. Jack Straw seems to have gone quiet when he needs to be pressing the authorities about an investigation. If we could only get rid of shyster Anderson then I think the whole circus big top would come tumbling down around their ears. I might leave the club in a predicament, but it can't be any worse than we are enduring now, at least we would be able to move forward, which is positive.

I can't understand why Kean's still in charge is they some sort deal that he can't be sacked? Do SEM still have a influence at the club? If so how long for and are the so called board members ie Agnew and co, contracted in the same way.

I feel that the Venkys have been duped by SEM, they have admitted to having no knowlegde of English football in the past and it seem that theyhave been ill advised by these charlatans. I hope and pray that they realise what has happened and can do something about it.

Alan Curbishley would be a safe choice and like Alan Pardew is probably desperate to do a good job, as he's been out of the game for a while.

Jurgen Klinsmann is a dream choice, never going to come off.

Tim Sherwood is a very risky choice but could pay off like Mark Hughes did.

To be honest I am not actually sure that any of these managers would have amassed the same amount of points as Kean has so far but that is not the point is it. As the article says - his position is untenable.

Jurgen Klinsmann is a dream choice, never going to come off. Tim Sherwood is a very risky choice but could pay off like Mark Hughes did. To be honest I am not actually sure that any of these managers would have amassed the same amount of points as Kean has so far but that is not the point is it.

What a pointless comment.
.
Simple answer is Rovers have been extremely lucky this season, they should be in the bottom 3 on performance, they have been absolute crud, no midfield, a defence and keeper that hasn't been introduced to each other yet and a manager that brings new meaning to the word "inept".
.
The fans have a right to voice an opinion, especially idiots like me who have paid up front for ST's, albeit at the last minute, what a stupid mistake, heart ruling head I am afraid and I can only apologise to the fans who had the balls to stay away.

So if there is a boycott for the Wolves game I will join it, the disenfranchised are not going to the games anyway so it's now up to the current ST holders to stand up and be counted.

More away fans in the ground than home fans should be the target, with a silent protest outside for 90 minutes.

He's no nonsense and he doesn't make excuses and he knows what it takes to get a team promoted. And he played for us last time we were in this league. He could be our new "Graeme Souness".
I agree, Simon Grayson is a lot better prospect than Tim Sherwood. He has experience and also excellent tactics as he did successfully against Blackpool.

Maybe a boycott of cancerous publications would benefit you. Rovers are doing their job, LET are doing their job, however you lot are laughable in that most of you now support the LET more than Rovers. Congrats to the media.

This not my article , but what a cracking point it makes

It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then?
I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them.
If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs.
Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply.
And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean?
As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement.
Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore i

We're assuming here that Venkys have the power to remove Kean. Wouldn't things suddenly make a lot more sense if it was true that they have no authority and that contractually Kean and his friends have the last say on footballing matters. Venkys just sign the cheques and reap the rewards of the vast publicity. Anyone who thinks our predicament is a result of Desai's stupidity needs to wake up and see what is really happening here. Kean was involved with this lot before the takeover (see Henrique Calisto) and he decides what happens with his influential associates behind the scenes. Hence why Venkys are successful business people in India but cannot influence things in England.

I raised this point months ago. The Walker family should shoulder the responsibility for selling the club off to Venky in the first place, but that's water under the bridge now. Nothing can be done to rectify that.

Well, that's Jack Straw for you, Blackburn through and through - NOT

So the vast majority squawk; it is ‘just a game’. This football stuff, it doesn’t matter really. It is meaningless in comparison to other, more sugary aspects of our life such as love, or perhaps living itself. Any website – any facebook page. I guarantee you will stumble across that type of comment. The type which I still maintain is vacant, hollow and inherently contradictory. Just a game. Just like scrabble. Or drunken twister. Or perhaps a few rounds of Snap!

Of course, if we are to take this notion to its logical conclusion…well, then it all becomes rather convoluted and inconveniently tricky, doesn’t it? Bob Dylan is not the poet of a generation. He’s just a guy with an acoustic and a way with words. The film Philadelphia with Tom Hanks? Not the profound masterpiece which lightened eyes from a homophobic darkness; nope, just a handful of people playing pretend, perched in front of lights and cameras. George Orwell’s 1984? Just words.

I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs.

And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you.

It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then?

I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them.

If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs.

Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply.

And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean?

As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement.

Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore it.

Well its another beautiful morning in Sunny Florida. Just had breakfast on the terrace whilst reading the latest LT diatribe.

Many many weeks ago I wrote on this advising Rovers fans that the only way to remove Steve Kean was a near 100% boycott. The majority did not listen.

Now your team sits third in the league and are averaging 2 points a game which is promotion form. If Kean is sacked on results then so should 90% of managers.

As for the mighty LT demanding Keans head on a silver platter !!! Who on earth do they think they are. If they are so passionate about the local team then buy it and make all the decisions you want. Would love to see Andy Cryer as manager.

Who is to blame ?

Without a doubt it is The Walkers Trust. Once Jack Walker died so did Blackburn Rovers. The trust simply wanted their cash and to get out as fast as possible. They had no loyalty whatsoever to the club or the town. No one who cared would have sold to a bunch of Indian chicken farmers. After that is was always going to be downhill. The club ( predictably ) is full of mercenaries. Anderson, Kean,Singh , the Players etc and The venkys will never understand that they are being taken to the cleaners on a daily basis.

The Answer

As much as I would like to see Blackburn Rovers sink into oblivion, the only answer is to remove the Venkys completely and replace them with owners who care about the club. Simply replacing Kean with Sherwood or whoever is not sufficient. Look at Anderson and Shebby Singh ! I mean would you employ them to run YOUR football club. I think not.

My own club are struggling like many others but I would not swap places with you guys at any price..UTC

that is not unusual for a relegated club....three to five thousand is consider 'normal'......but if we are still up there come April then you will see quite a few of the missing fans back.

Cant understand why we are waiting to can Kean...? If he is going why the heck has he not gone now? Black can take the team for a game or two until we sort out Sherwood (if that is who we are going for).....what are the majority of fans feeling for Sherwood anyway? .We all said that 'anyone' would be better than Kean - but is Sherwood 'anyone'...? He clearly does not have enough experience to manage the Rovers on his own? So I expect a more experienced co-manager (or director of football) alongside him. Dalglish maybe or Redknap in the short term?

Well its another beautiful morning in Sunny Florida. Just had breakfast on the terrace whilst reading the latest LT diatribe.

Many many weeks ago I wrote on this advising Rovers fans that the only way to remove Steve Kean was a near 100% boycott. The majority did not listen.

Now your team sits third in the league and are averaging 2 points a game which is promotion form. If Kean is sacked on results then so should 90% of managers.

As for the mighty LT demanding Keans head on a silver platter !!! Who on earth do they think they are. If they are so passionate about the local team then buy it and make all the decisions you want. Would love to see Andy Cryer as manager.

Who is to blame ?

Without a doubt it is The Walkers Trust. Once Jack Walker died so did Blackburn Rovers. The trust simply wanted their cash and to get out as fast as possible. They had no loyalty whatsoever to the club or the town. No one who cared would have sold to a bunch of Indian chicken farmers. After that is was always going to be downhill. The club ( predictably ) is full of mercenaries. Anderson, Kean,Singh , the Players etc and The venkys will never understand that they are being taken to the cleaners on a daily basis.

The Answer

As much as I would like to see Blackburn Rovers sink into oblivion, the only answer is to remove the Venkys completely and replace them with owners who care about the club. Simply replacing Kean with Sherwood or whoever is not sufficient. Look at Anderson and Shebby Singh ! I mean would you employ them to run YOUR football club. I think not.

My own club are struggling like many others but I would not swap places with you guys at any price..UTC

What a pointless article! If Venkys declare that Kean is to be the manager will the "supporters" accept that and return? No they won't in effect they are trying to blackmail or hold the club to ransom. If they don't get their own way, which is for Kean to go, they will boycott the club regardless of Venkys giving Keen support.
What a nonsense comment, with no basis to facts.

If you purchased a product which was completely unsatisfactory and the vendor refused to put things right, whilst being supported by the owner, would you continue to be a customer?

So the vast majority squawk; it is ‘just a game’. This football stuff, it doesn’t matter really. It is meaningless in comparison to other, more sugary aspects of our life such as love, or perhaps living itself. Any website – any facebook page. I guarantee you will stumble across that type of comment. The type which I still maintain is vacant, hollow and inherently contradictory. Just a game. Just like scrabble. Or drunken twister. Or perhaps a few rounds of Snap!

Of course, if we are to take this notion to its logical conclusion…well, then it all becomes rather convoluted and inconveniently tricky, doesn’t it? Bob Dylan is not the poet of a generation. He’s just a guy with an acoustic and a way with words. The film Philadelphia with Tom Hanks? Not the profound masterpiece which lightened eyes from a homophobic darkness; nope, just a handful of people playing pretend, perched in front of lights and cameras. George Orwell’s 1984? Just words.

I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs.

And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you.

It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then?

I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them.

If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs.

Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply.

And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean?

As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement.

Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore it.
At least admit it is not your own work.

Anderson, Kean,Singh , the Players etc and The venkys will never understand that they are being taken to the cleaners on a daily basis. The Answer As much as I would like to see Blackburn Rovers sink into oblivion, the only answer is to remove the Venkys completely and replace them with owners who care about the club. Simply replacing Kean with Sherwood or whoever is not sufficient. Look at Anderson and Shebby Singh ! I mean would you employ them to run YOUR football club. I think not. My own club are struggling like many others but I would not swap places with you guys at any price..UTC[/p][/quote]It'll be a cold day in hell before I take any advice from a Bonleh fan.

I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs.

And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you.

It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then?

I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them.

If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs.

Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply.

And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean?

As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement.

Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore it.

Regardless of anyones views on Mr Keans ability to manage ( Personally would not let him near my under 9s team), the impact on keeping this man in charge at the club is highly damaging, both on a buisness and footballing level, the decision to leave Steve Kean in charge has no logical argument, he is delivering nothing of note on the pitch and there is almost an all out war amongst long term Blackburn fans that continues to damage the club.

One decision changes everything here , remove steve Kean and bring in fresh management, the squad is strong enough to storm this league, the fans begin to come back,revenues increase, the atmosphere around the club improves, sponsors come back to the club , we all go nuts when we get promoted and I can stop using valuable work time to come on here and comment about the obvious.
We wil all go nuts when they sack Kean!!!! lol!!

You might find the product unsatisfactory but others don't. The position in the League is more than satisfactory. The vendor is doing nothing wrong, average over 2 points per game and the owners are doing nothing wrong (you might not agree with what they are doing but its their club and they set the policy), if you don't like it choose something else or stick with it and support.

Any honourable manager would have fallen on his sword by now and it speaks volumes about the man.

A long time ago I admired him for his belief in himself - but it didn't take long to realise there was something else to this saga and not just an air of dillusion from the man in charge of our team.

Why would he not go of his own accord? Maybe, because he knows he's unemployable as a manager again. Had he gone sooner the job market would have been more promising.

Some would say can you blame him for milking things for as long as possible. Maybe for some seemingly impossible reason he is harder to 'get rid' of than most....mmm leaves a lot to the imagiantion that one too.

Either way, the longer the stay of execution the worse it will get whether you go or you are pushed. But rest assured Kean whatever you reasons, whatever your motive not to resign and waiting to be pushed, you will at some point in the future inevitably reap what you sow. The longer it continues the worse it will be.

The truth is only Steve Kean knows the REAL truth about himself. If he is 100% honest one day - when he looks himself in the mirror and asks himself if he is proud of his life and his achievemeents. Deep down only he will TRULY know if he has been a good egg or not. Well Steve, I hope when you do you will remember all the disruption, heartache and upset that those who love BRFC have endured as you pose that question to youself. I hope you can 100% say to yourself that your conscience is clear, but I somehow doubt it.

Mr. Steve Kean, life is full of never-ending lessons and it will continue to present you with the same lesson until you learn from it and then move on to the next. So do us ALL a favour and move on...

I once remember Graeme Souness saying, "This is a proper football club, run by proper people for the right reasons." How times have changed!

Weak owners or not, your very presence at Ewood compounds the club's problems day by day. Your debt and the owners debt to the fans get bigger with every second just as the cashflow diminishes at the same time too.

There is a glimmmer of hope for Venjys if a new manager can be brought in. I just hope you don't go down in history for being the man that bankrupted our club through your self-interest. If so, you won't enjoy the visit to the mirror on little bit.

Anyone seen or heard from Derek Shaw or Paul Agnew recently????

Do they exist or are they card board cutouts.

At least Shebby has some balls and does come out to talk to the media even if he takes a while to say nothing much.

It seems to me like Venkys employ these people but they are scared to death to actually say or do anything for fear of losing their unearned income.

Neither Tim Sherwood or Alan Shearer fill me with too much hope, both are untried and tested at managerial or championship level...that said this league is there for the taking and just to see either of them in the dugout instead of the present incumbent would be such a relief and I am looking forward to the party at Ewood WHEN not IF it happens!

Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you. It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then? I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them. If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs. Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply. And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean? As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement. Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore it.[/p][/quote]The greatest thoughts I have ever read on these pages concerning just what this disgraceful episode as spawned for BRFC.

Well its another beautiful morning in Sunny Florida. Just had breakfast on the terrace whilst reading the latest LT diatribe.

Many many weeks ago I wrote on this advising Rovers fans that the only way to remove Steve Kean was a near 100% boycott. The majority did not listen.

Now your team sits third in the league and are averaging 2 points a game which is promotion form. If Kean is sacked on results then so should 90% of managers.

As for the mighty LT demanding Keans head on a silver platter !!! Who on earth do they think they are. If they are so passionate about the local team then buy it and make all the decisions you want. Would love to see Andy Cryer as manager.

Who is to blame ?

Without a doubt it is The Walkers Trust. Once Jack Walker died so did Blackburn Rovers. The trust simply wanted their cash and to get out as fast as possible. They had no loyalty whatsoever to the club or the town. No one who cared would have sold to a bunch of Indian chicken farmers. After that is was always going to be downhill. The club ( predictably ) is full of mercenaries. Anderson, Kean,Singh , the Players etc and The venkys will never understand that they are being taken to the cleaners on a daily basis.

The Answer

As much as I would like to see Blackburn Rovers sink into oblivion, the only answer is to remove the Venkys completely and replace them with owners who care about the club. Simply replacing Kean with Sherwood or whoever is not sufficient. Look at Anderson and Shebby Singh ! I mean would you employ them to run YOUR football club. I think not.

My own club are struggling like many others but I would not swap places with you guys at any price..UTC

Yes,but you Dingles are always struggling, you are so used to failure its become a way of life for you. Even now with all the problems at Ewood,you are still below us and there you will stay. Rovers problems stem from a bad sale of the club to people who have no knowledge of the game, your clubs problems are that they have Dingles supporting them.

Apprently Russ Walker didnt want to sell despite not being into football. It was the others who wanted to offload. Can you imagine what Jack would think now? He would have those Venkys down Nuttal Street quicker than you can say Steve Kean!

So the vast majority squawk; it is ‘just a game’. This football stuff, it doesn’t matter really. It is meaningless in comparison to other, more sugary aspects of our life such as love, or perhaps living itself. Any website – any facebook page. I guarantee you will stumble across that type of comment. The type which I still maintain is vacant, hollow and inherently contradictory. Just a game. Just like scrabble. Or drunken twister. Or perhaps a few rounds of Snap!

Of course, if we are to take this notion to its logical conclusion…well, then it all becomes rather convoluted and inconveniently tricky, doesn’t it? Bob Dylan is not the poet of a generation. He’s just a guy with an acoustic and a way with words. The film Philadelphia with Tom Hanks? Not the profound masterpiece which lightened eyes from a homophobic darkness; nope, just a handful of people playing pretend, perched in front of lights and cameras. George Orwell’s 1984? Just words.

I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs.

And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you.

It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then?

I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them.

If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs.

Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply.

And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean?

As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving.

Bob Dylan is not the poet of a generation. He’s just a guy with an acoustic and a way with words. The film Philadelphia with Tom Hanks? Not the profound masterpiece which lightened eyes from a homophobic darkness; nope, just a handful of people playing pretend, perched in front of lights and cameras. George Orwell’s 1984? Just words. I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs. And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you. It could be your club. Would Mr Kean have ‘dignity’ then? I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them. If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his clubs. Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the Media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply. And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean? As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone.

What another PR farce. Who is actually in charge of PR at BRFC? Surely Mr Kean has to go now. I really don't believe Venky's are holdng on because they don't want to pay Mr Kean compensation. They must be smarter than that? There has to be more to this. Where are BRAG with all this evidence? Whatever the die is really cast now and his situation is untenable. Mr Kean has to go as manager whether he stays in another format who knows but wqould be a strange move and not appease the fans. He has to be taken to the tower and off with his head quickly. My biggest concern is that Mr Sherwood is being mentioned as a replacement along with Mr Shearer as second preference

Quite right Midas !!

If the owners did give way to 'supporter power' and not to business sense then it would raise the question of who was actually running the Club, and encourage more protest in the future.
The words tail, wagging, and dog spring to mind.

P.S. Kean is a duffer and I want him out PDQ.
However it's not my millions which are keeping the club afloat so I have to grin and bear it for a little longer.

State of the Game - Jack Heaney

So, the vast majority squawk; it is ‘just a game’. This football stuff, it doesn’t matter really. It is meaningless in comparison to other, more sugary aspects of our life such as love, or perhaps living itself. Any website – any facebook page. I guarantee you will stumble across that type of comment. The type which I still maintain is vacant, hollow and inherently contradictory. Just a game. Just like Scrabble. Or drunken Twister. Or perhaps a few rounds of Snap!

Of course, if we are to take this notion to its logical conclusion…well, then it all becomes rather convoluted and inconveniently tricky, doesn’t it? Bob Dylan is not the poet of a generation. He’s just a guy with an acoustic and a way with words. The film Philadelphia with Tom Hanks? Not the profound masterpiece which lightened eyes from a homophobic darkness; nope, just a handful of people playing pretend, perched in front of lights and cameras. George Orwell’s 1986? Just words.

I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs.

And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you.

It could be your club. Would Mr. Kean have ‘dignity’ then?

I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them.

If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his club’s.

Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply.

And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated?

A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean?

As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement.

Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore it.

What exactly do they think they will achieve by keeping Kean as manager, they have gone from 25,000 average gate to 12,777 in under 2 years. Do they hate Blackburn rovers and want the club to go out of business?

stick to football says...

If Kean had any sense he would go now - he could point to the fact tht he had taken the club to the Top of the Championship but he was forced out by the supporters. It wasnt his fault it was Venkys for failing to back him with serious cash when Rovers were a Premiership Club He would get sympathy from the wider footballing world who believe Rovers fans are as much to blame and he would get a nice pay off.

Unfortunately his positive thoiughts do not see it this way and therefore Venkys need to act before their investment hits roock bottom. £3 Million pounds for Hoillett - dont you wish Rovers could do such deals.

Share your sentiments entirely. Prior to taking over at Rovers, Kean had no prior front line managerial experience and we have painfully suffered the consequences of a rookie wannabe manager. Are we about to make the same mistake again with Sherwood? Surely the old maxim of 'once bitten, twice shy' should come into play. What the club needs more than anything is a steady pair of experienced managerial hands at this juncture.

We have the worst defense in the Championship,we have the worst owners in our history,we are playing rubbish football,we have the worst manager that's ever been in the world of football,we are seen as a laughing stock. Yet with all this going on in our club,you Dingles still cant catch us. Keep looking up,we will always be there. Its good that you feel you need to come on this site,simply because there is nothing of interest in Dingleland,apart from chasing sheep and inbreeding,but then again, as your name implies, you are proud of that.

£3m is good money for Junior Toillet and a creditable bit of business for Steve Kean. Well done.

Why don't the Venkys take a leaf out of Mike Ashley's book and award Kean with an improved 8 year deal? He clearly deserves it doing a fine job of leading you to the promotion spots in the face of some tremendous pressure.

It is meaningless in comparison to other, more sugary aspects of our life such as love, or perhaps living itself. Any website – any facebook page. I guarantee you will stumble across that type of comment. The type which I still maintain is vacant, hollow and inherently contradictory. Just a game. Just like Scrabble. Or drunken Twister. Or perhaps a few rounds of Snap! Of course, if we are to take this notion to its logical conclusion…well, then it all becomes rather convoluted and inconveniently tricky, doesn’t it? Bob Dylan is not the poet of a generation. He’s just a guy with an acoustic and a way with words. The film Philadelphia with Tom Hanks? Not the profound masterpiece which lightened eyes from a homophobic darkness; nope, just a handful of people playing pretend, perched in front of lights and cameras. George Orwell’s 1986? Just words. I hope my point is clear. Anything that relentlessly hypnotises humans – anything that consumes us like football does – is more than its raw, base description. It is art. If you’ll allow this headstrong lout to opine, the ‘just a game’ saying is a vapid, desecrated, skewed viewpoint. We bestow upon life such a sacred, tender gracefulness and awe; yet how interesting that hours upon hours of that precious life are spent watching football. The game is more than a game. Therein lies the allure, and it should be imbued and inculcated within every one of us. We must cherish and promulgate that point to the heavens above. And of course if football is more than a game, then football clubs are more than just clubs. And this is why Blackburn Rovers, still flush with the unsubtle, supine disease of Venky’s, are so tragic. I am not a Rovers fan. But this club are not to be laughed at. They are not to be insulted. Any dignified football fan must stride with them in a battle against what amounts to nothing more than sleazy, repugnant molestation, hidden under a carapace of insulting, lip-trembling, woe-is-me delusion by the bone-jarring joker of the putrid pack – Steve Kean. Remember in May, when Blackburn were relegated? The enduring image of the Blackburn Rovers crest sullied by Lancashire rain and syringed by infection should never leave you. It could be your club. Would Mr. Kean have ‘dignity’ then? I hesitated before writing this article because the latest development in the sorry saga was so very inevitable. The reports came in: Kean to be sacked. He was supposed to pick up 16 points yet picked up 14. Hilariously some even offer that as a reason to be a Kean-apologist. The reports came in again: Kean will still be in charge for at least one more game. Haven’t we heard this one before? Who exactly is this man? What credentials does he possess? Does his ego know no bounds: to have the audacity – the gall – to claim that exciting times lie ahead for Blackburn after overseeing their relegation is an insult. And there’s a long list of them. If this charlatan cared a jot about the club he ‘represents’ (in actuality he embodies not a hair on the Blackburn head) he would have resigned. That would be dignity; but then, just how did Kean get the Blackburn gig again? Oh. Oh yeah, we remember. He is not ‘optimistic’ or ‘determined’, but deluded and deranged. A selfish man concerned with his own needs, not his club’s. Perhaps some of the spotlight has been diluted since Rovers relegation. With fans exiting the stands and not returning, one would expect the common sense to prevail. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of it all is the media’s sympathy for Kean. Especially towards the end of last season, it was the Blackburn fans being tarred because of ‘violence’. What is honestly expected of them? Should they merely stand there while a nugget of their town is buried underneath swindlers, corruption and moral abjection? Just imagine the feeling – be empathetic. You spend your money to watch the team. A connection between you and the club matures: memories of visits to the stadium with mums and dads, or triumphant wins that are etched into your memory delicately but deeply. And now it is sapped from you; over a century of history; an institution that began 37 years before the Titanic sunk. The football world often sees things haphazardly, but the way some protected the incompetent Kean was earthworm low. Not to mention Venky’s: parachute payments, believing they could challenge for the Champions League on an absurdly low budget, the absentee landlords aspect of their egotistically ignominious era. If Kean is ever removed – and sometimes it feels as though he never will be – it is a step. But Venky’s intentions are still dark and murky. They are still morally bankrupt. And remember what happens when one is eliminated? A power vacuum. The truth is, Venky’s are so far removed from logic that an afterbirth could convince them to fork out a salary. Who knows who they could pick to replace Kean? As ever with these situations, it is the fans that pay. Cross-town rivalries should pale. When Kean holds his hand up to the fans after the final whistle of a match, he is drowning – not waving. Any football worth his or her salt should realise that the work of every legendary figure at the club – from Jack Walker to Simon Garner – is being undone. By now, hopefully most stand with Blackburn. But there’s always room for improvement. Alas, Rovers neighbourhood is being ravished. But collectively now we should all stand alongside Blackburn fans. For they are the only ones trying to restore it.

Steve Kean was anathema and still remains anathema. Society hates him without ration.

But are his needs any more shocking than the needs of other animals and men? Are his deeds more outrageous than the deeds of the parent who drained the spirit from his child? Steve Kean may foster quickened heartbeats and unadorned hair. But is he worse than the parent who gave to society a neurotic child who became a politician? Is he worse than `the manufacturer who set up belated foundations with the money he made by handing bombs and guns to suicidal nationalists? Is he worse than the distiller who gave bastardized grain juice to stultify further the brains of those who, sober, were incapable of a progressive thought? (Nay, I apologize for this calumny; I nip the brew that feeds me.) Is he worse, then, than the publisher who filled ubiquitous racks with **** and death wishes? Really, now, search your soul; lovie—is Steve Kean so bad?

His conman has some old on his position at the club that is not "the norm" and is now off to tell the Venky,s what is going to happen from here.

The bigest insult to the supporter is that conman Kean remain within the club in some capacity that would allow him to continue puling the strings behind the scene.
This would not give the new Manager any hope of succeeding....AND WHYARE THEVENKY,S GOING YET AGAIN WITH AN INEXPIRENCED MANAGER....OR ARE THEY LOOKING FOR A "YES" MAN FOR KEAN !!!!

Kean won stay of execution at Blackburn ‘after wife’s 11th-hour call to owner’

Steve Kean earned a ‘stay of execution’ at Blackburn Rovers after his wife Margaret called the club’s co-owner Anuradha Desai to say she believed sacking him would be unfair, sources in India and England have told Sportingintelligence
.

Insiders say the decision was taken to sack Kean last weekend and plans for his dismissal were so advanced that a press release confirming the news was in circulation at Ewood Park on Monday morning, signed off by Venky’s and ready to be posted on the club website.

But in an 11th-hour intervention, sources say, Mrs Desai took at least one call from Mrs Kean to protest at what was then believed to be an imminent departure.

It is not known whether Kean himself and / or Kean’s agent, Jerome Anderson, also spoke to Mrs Desai but the sacking did not go ahead as planned and the press release was not issued.

Rumours persist that Kean will be leaving the club anyway in the next few weeks – but nobody at the club or in India will confirm this, leading to fresh confusion and anger among fans. Rumours that compensation remains the only sticking point cannot be confirmed.

This is not the first time that Kean has apparently been on the brink only to be spared by Mrs Desai. To Sportingintelligence
’s knowledge, he has been close to the sack at least three previous times only to argue successfully he should stay – or have unconfirmed other parties make that case on his behalf.

Sportingintelligence called Mrs Desai at her family home in Pune, India, this morning to ask about Kean’s situation. A secretary said she would return the call but this has not happened at the time of writing.

Kean said earlier today he had held ‘positive and constructive’ talks with the owners.

On Tuesday, Venky’s ‘global advisor’ Shebby Singh, said he had ‘no comment’ to make about Kean’s long-term future but that Kean would remain in charge for this weekend’s match against Charlton.

Singh has declined to comment further.

Blackburn director Paul Agnew said earlier this week that he had no knowledge that Kean was about to be sacked.

Anderson has not responded to messages. Rovers MD Derek Shaw is away today and unavailable for comment.

Blackburn were relegated from the Premier League under Kean last season and are currently third in the Championship with 14 points from seven games.

Crowds at Ewood Park have plunged this season, raising concerns over the club’s income streams. Blackburn have no shirt sponsor and a fractured relationship with other sponsors and local businesses.

Singh took day-to-day control of the club as the owners’ hands-on representative in England over the summer. He is understood to favour a change of manager, as do both Mrs Desai’s brothers and co-owners, Balaji and Venky.

The brothers, along with virutally all senior club and Venky’s insiders, have urged managerial change on multiple occasions during the past 14 months but Mrs Desai has always overruled them to keep Kean in place.

Mrs Desai is known to want to improve relations with fans groups. Via Shebby Singh she has told one supporters’ group that if they nominate three Rovers fans who need ‘life-changing medical treatment’, then Venky’s will arrange and pay for such treatment.

What many fans would rather see is a new manager and a fresh start but it remains unclear when such change might happen.

Great news. Steve Kean is to be offered a job in the board room as Director for Global Football Development.

I'm glad to hear this news. Steve Kean did brilliantly getting the club as far as he did and it would be a crying shame not to build on the foundations he laid.

He deserves this position. Well done Steve.

THE KEAN IS DEAD

LONG LIVE THE KEAN
