Competition with Kean is healthy says Rovers goalkeeper

Lancashire Telegraph: Simon Eastwood Simon Eastwood

BLACKBURN Rovers goalkeeper Simon Eastwood is determined to keep hold of the number one shirt after enjoying a dream league debut for the club.

But Eastwood, one of the stars of Saturday’s excellent 0-0 draw at high-flying QPR, knows he has a fight on his hands with the man he has replaced between the posts.

The 24-year-old reckons his good friend Jake Kean will bounce back stronger after being dropped for the Hoops clash.

And Eastwood revealed that Kean, who he shares a lift to and from training with, was the first person to congratulate him after he played a key role in keeping Rovers’ first away clean sheet of the campaign.

“Jake’s been brilliant with me, we both travel in together and he was the first one to come up to me after the game, which was brilliant,” said summer signing Eastwood, whose only previous appearance for Rovers was in the Carling Cup defeat at Carlisle United in August.

“We’re both going to push each other to see who gets the shirt.

“At the minute I’ve got it but I’m sure he’ll push me as much as I’ve pushed him.

“It’s good for competition and we both thrive on it.

“You don’t get too many opportunities at this level to play games so when you do you have to take your chance.”

It was Eastwood’s stunning save form Matt Phillips that ensured Rovers became only the second side this season to take points off second-placed QPR at Loftus Road.

Modest Eastwood, who arrived at Ewood Park on a free transfer from Portsmouth in May, described it as a ‘reaction’ stop.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer, however, gave it the billing it deserved.

Bowyer said: “It was a world class save.”

Before Saturday Eastwood had never played in the Championship before.

And while he has experience of League One and League Two, it was only 18 months ago that the 6ft 2in stopper was playing in the Conference North for FC Halifax Town.

“To come to London and play the top-of-the-league team – there’s not many better feelings than that,” said Eastwood, who paid tribute to the performance of his defenders.

“I want to be playing in these type of games and at places like this every week.”

Eastwood was informed by Bowyer in midweek that he would be making his Rovers league bow.

The first person he told was his girlfriend, with whom he has a two-week-old baby girl.

Eastwood said: “It was nice to know early as it helps you prepare.

“To come to somewhere like this – a big club with so many good individual players – and get a clean sheet, I’m really happy with it.

“If somebody had offered me a clean sheet before the game I’d have snapped their hands off.

“We came to win the game but if you’re up against a top-of-the-league team and you get a point, you have to take it.”

It 's good he has taken his chance and should have been given his opportunty much earlier in my opinion as Kean has been struggling for a while and needed a break.

With Calamity Kean in goal the Blackburn Rovers players were looking like terrified little Bunny Rabbits caught in the headlights of a thundering Claret and Blue 18-wheeler.

All hope for the rest of the season lies with Simon Eastwood, a former Woking and Oxford United goalkeeper who was plying his trade in the Conference North with Halifax Town last year.

Oh dear...

Maybe you can pop over onto the Manchester Evening News website and post a similar comment with regards to Chris Smalling who in the space of two years went from playing for Maidstone United to Manchester United since you clearly have plenty of spare time on your hands. Oh dear...

Well its good to read Eastwood did well on his debut. Its week in, week out that matters, but good luck to the lad.
i just think we expect so much of this young team every week, its a team of potential, but is inconsistent. It will remain that why until we bring in another experience pro to work alongside Dunny. Id push for a fit Robbo in goal, for his experience and help organise the defence. For certain we'd pick up more points than we do now, whilst we have got some experience lets use it and allow the younger lads to learn their trade, rather than being in a pressure can every week.

But we're top? Which means your comments are absolute nonsense.

It's always shortly with you clowns isn't it. You will have a bad run shortly, your players will get injured shortly, you will lose a games shortly, etc.

All of those things have happened and yet Burnley are STILL top of the league. Hurts you like nothing else doesn't it.

ps. thanks for helping us back to top spot while cementing your own place in the bottom half.

Very sensible. This lad was playing in the Mickey Mouse league last year for Halifax Town, how Blackburn could possibly think he can step up to Championship level is the stuff of fairy-tales and make-believe.

Throw him in against the likes of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes and I dread to think what might happen.

You've already had the experienced pro to work alongside Dunny, his name was Danny Murphy. Look where that got you.

You can keep the shirt Simon, I thought you were absolutely awesome and GB pegged it right with THAT save. it was a certain goal under Kean who started well but has lost some finesse in recent games.

Nice to have the option and with a match fit Gestede and a very near return for Rochina, some much needed points on the board this weekend will go far to get lift the spirits from the Ipswich defeat.

Innocent until proven guilty. So no termination of any contract until the case is ended one way or another.

If DJ Campbell is proven guilty then his contract must be terminated immediately.
In the meantime, he should be suspended by the club pending the completion of any police investigation / trial and if it is legally possible, he should also have his wages stopped whilst he is suspended.

It's been a nice little break my friend, a bit of sunshine and Burnley climbing back on top of the pile looking down at little old "cheating" Blackburn Rovers. It's a shame the only holiday you've ever had took you as far as Blackpool.

So now we are extending the period of Burnley's demise are we? When we reached the top spot on October 1st you lot were blabbing excitedly about an instant fall and the Clarets dropping down the league. Didn't happen did it so now we move the goalposts in typical Blackburn style to "after xmas". And where is your team at the present time? In the bottom half, having players arrested on "suspicion" of cheating.

Embarrassing.

LOL saved me the trouble!

"Thundering claret and blue 10 wheeler", does that include a one goal win at home against the bottom team in the league with just 40% of the possession, oh and I nearly forgot the paltry crowd getting on the backs of the players.

YCMIU.

More like an 18 wheel bandwagon that's just had a few spokes loosened.

"Thundering claret and blue 10 wheeler", does that include a one goal win at home against the bottom team in the league with just 40% of the possession, oh and I nearly forgot the paltry crowd getting on the backs of the players.

YCMIU.

More like an 18 wheel bandwagon that's just had a few spokes loosened.

No, not at all.

Oldham have suspended Montano and stopped his salary until he is proven guilty or otherwise.

Rovers must do the same with Campbell, they can't have a choice, I hope and suspect the club lawyers are looking at the options available right now.

Campbell has been released on bail until April 2014, guilty or not he cannot be allowed to play for Rovers or any other team until either the charged are dropped or he has been cleared.

Ignoring any potential for mickey taking at the moment how would you feel if a Burnley player was implicated? Would you want him to put the Claret and Blue on again?

Could you trust him?

I think that any genuine fan would say the same irrespective of who the player was.

I agree if it was a burnley player/players irrespective I would want them suspended. Cheating spoils the gane - and what he did can/could alter the whole outcome of a game - If its true, especially with what they already earn, it would be a disgrace - all of em - and if a Burnley player is or has been involved at all then I would feel the same about them!!

It's been a nice little break my friend, a bit of sunshine and Burnley climbing back on top of the pile looking down at little old "cheating" Blackburn Rovers. It's a shame the only holiday you've ever had took you as far as Blackpool.

So now we are extending the period of Burnley's demise are we? When we reached the top spot on October 1st you lot were blabbing excitedly about an instant fall and the Clarets dropping down the league. Didn't happen did it so now we move the goalposts in typical Blackburn style to "after xmas". And where is your team at the present time? In the bottom half, having players arrested on "suspicion" of cheating.

Embarrassing.
Holiday my @rse,you cowardly slug.

He doesn't need his salary. He probably made enough out of getting sent off against his old club, Blackpool. I wonder what the odds were on that one?

Did we really take 1800 fans to London on saturday? According to the QPR blog Loft for Words we did:

Attendance 15,987 (1,300 Blackburn approx) A very creditable size of away following, given Blackburn’s current form and league position and the low numbers that usually travel to W12 from that part of the country.

Rovers must do the same with Campbell, they can't have a choice, I hope and suspect the club lawyers are looking at the options available right now.

Campbell has been released on bail until April 2014, guilty or not he cannot be allowed to play for Rovers or any other team until either the charged are dropped or he has been cleared.

Ignoring any potential for mickey taking at the moment how would you feel if a Burnley player was implicated? Would you want him to put the Claret and Blue on again?

Could you trust him?

I think that any genuine fan would say the same irrespective of who the player was.
I agree if it was a burnley player/players irrespective I would want them suspended. Cheating spoils the gane - and what he did can/could alter the whole outcome of a game - If its true, especially with what they already earn, it would be a disgrace - all of em - and if a Burnley player is or has been involved at all then I would feel the same about them!!
Is what Campbell stands accused of classed as cheating, I can't see how it is? If he'd taken a comedy dive in the penalty are to con the ref then yes it is and he would've been booked, but flying into a challenge at the edge of the pitch in the opposition's half to take a yelliw gains his side no advantage, so it's not cheating, just illegal if he's found guilty. Did anyone call Roy Keane a cheat when he ended Alfe Inge Haaland's career with a premeditated assault? I'm not condoning any of his actions and in fact quite glad that GB has now had the option of playing him taken away, but that's purely down to other lads being better than him. Part of me hopes he's found guilty so that we can cancel his contract; could do with another couple getting roped in too!

I agree with you. Should be suspended on no pay and sent home.
in any other job you would be suspended pending further investigations and this is what should happen to this chap and with immediate effect!!
Just another embarrassment for the Rovers fans to contend with let alone people like Shaw & Co - as far as the Venkys it wont matter as embarrassments are just met with silence and the fans fed with more 'manure whilst keeping them in the dark' !!
OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS INCLUDING SHAW COAR HENDRY AND MAYBE GB
Come to think of it, there is someone I despise more than Scumpbell.

Fair point on prejudicing the trial. I would hate to see a technicality preventing him from being banged up with those two big smelly Burnley fans. ( If, of course, he is found guilty of the alleged irregularities of getting himself booked and sent off thus jeopardizing his team's performance.)

I think that any genuine fan would say the same irrespective of who the player was.
Former Sheffield United striker Ched Evans was still playing whilst on bail having been charged with rape, right up until his trial.

I just don't see how a club can not pay a player who is under contract before he has been tried and either convicted or aquited at court.

It is in your interests to find a way to not pay him though because presumably he will be suspended and at £35 K (or there abouts) a week that's a lot of money to be paying for literally nothing.

However much I might agree or not...[/p][/quote]I guess that depends on how convinced you are of his innocence, or otherwise. Angry From Accrington

Slip sliding away, only top because we put you there, temporarily of course
See you in the play offs as long as you dont drop too far when Ings toddles off in January
Oh dear, never mind eh, normal service to be resumed shortly
Bye Bye Burnley
Good for you....while it lasted
But we're top? Which means your comments are absolute nonsense.

It's always shortly with you clowns isn't it. You will have a bad run shortly, your players will get injured shortly, you will lose a games shortly, etc.

All of those things have happened and yet Burnley are STILL top of the league. Hurts you like nothing else doesn't it.

ps. thanks for helping us back to top spot while cementing your own place in the bottom half.
My comments are nonsense?
Well you started it!
One win in six wont keep you top
And Ings is off in January and you will get Jack in his place
Jack Sh 1 t that is
One win in six and we're BACK TO THE TOP, you mug!

Board intent on keeping our top players unfortunately for you clowns, which means a torrid time for Calamity Kean in March when the best young striker in the country is peppering your goal with shots from everywhere. You'd be better off sticking your dancing male cheerleader between the posts, he'd inspire more confidence in your tissue paper back four.

The bad spell you have been wetting yourself about for weeks has seen us drop from first to third and then back to first. Marney, Ings and shortly Wallace returning, who will be like a new signing.

Meanwhile Cheatburn Rovers stagger from one PR disaster to the next. All we need now is Venky's implicated in the cheating scandal and your season will be complete!
