JOHN Filan last night became the newest member of Blackburn Rovers’ coaching staff and then declared – it’s like I’ve never been away.

The former Australia international goalkeeper has been appointed as the club’s new U21s assistant coach.

Filan, part of the Rovers squad which won promotion to the Premiership in 2001, had been working with the club’s keepers while goalkeeping coach John Keeley recovered from injury.

Keeley is now fully fit and back putting Paul Robinson, Jake Kean, Simon Eastwood and David Raya through their paces.

But Filan, 44, will not be leaving Rovers for the second time after first team boss Gary Bowyer offered him the chance to become U21s head coach Eric Kinder’s number two.

“I’ve been away from the club for a long time and people have told me there’s been a bit turmoil and trouble in the past years but to be honest when I walked back in, it had the same feeling when I first came here in ‘97,” said Filan, who made 73 appearances for Rovers before moving to Wigan Athletic in December 2001.

“It’s got that feeling and the people around the place appear to have Blackburn’s best interests at heart.”

Filan’s return to Rovers came after a chance meeting with Bowyer’s assistant manager Terry McPhillips.

“After meeting Terry I got a phone call from Gary and the boss asked me to help out with the goalkeepers,” said Filan, who has taken over the position previously held by Colin Hendry.

“I enjoyed the five weeks and in the process the U21s job was open, they suggested I apply and thankfully they’ve taken me on and I’m really happy.”

Welcome back John. Good luck in your new position. Pity all the pre Venky's era staff couldn't come back and turn the clock back. But never mind onwards and upwards. You have returned just in time to see the club on an upwards spiral. You have missed all the upheaval and bad times, only positivity will do now.

Good luck to the team Friday.
Get into em!

Good appointment. Gradually we are filling key roles with people who have the club's best interests at heart and ridding Rovers of the cancer that has eaten away at the core over the last few years

The vagaries of FFP.

Manchester City were the first British club to be sanctioned for breaching FFP rules, they are initially fined circa £50 million and a squad reduction of 4 players from 25 to 21 for all European competitions this coming season.

On appeal the fine was conditionally reduced providing they reduce their debt to fall within FFP guidelines over the next two seasons.

Any fines extracted will be taken from earnings made in European competition this coming season, if they comply with FFP within the agreed period between £25 to £35 million will be returned to them.

Reading the details they are effectively ONLY allowed to spend £49 million on players this season (nett) they have just spent circa £32 million on yet another foreign player I suspect many of us have never heard of, I certainly haven't.

£49 million.

Lets look at that from the perspective of all the clubs in, say, Division 2.

I would hazard a guess that if you added up the total nett spending capability of all the clubs in Division 2 this coming season it wouldn't come anywhere near the £49 million that City are restricted to spending.

Pretty sure all Division 1 clubs combined would struggle to meet that figure.

Championship? - probably.

The point I am making is the way that FFP has been implemented has nothing to do with fairness, I totally agree that clubs should live within their means, that's fine when you are a Man City of this world, but what about the rest?

Fair Play it ain't.

It's a way of ensuring the bigger clubs get a bigger slice of the cake and to Hell with the rest.

Yes spot on. Frankly it would not surprise me if we did not see a breakaway and a new league formed with the top six or so and the Elite from Europe leaving the rest of us to get on with it. You can guess where al the TV money will go. Sad but true.

As I have said many times before, I honestly believe that European Super League based on a franchise system is on the cards pretty soon, probably sooner than most think.

The top clubs in Europe are now much bigger than UEFA and they don't like the restrictions being placed on them by FFP, especially as their owners have pumped billions into them to make them top clubs.

KEAN REARS HIS ‘UGLY HEAD’
The awful Steve Kean took his first steps to attempt to get back into English Football when he launched a self-promoting campaign last weekend with the help of the Daily Mirror.
The Daily Mirror ran a double page story regarding the awful Kean last Saturday 2nd August. Written by James Nursey under the banner EXCLUSIVE.
For those of you who did not see the article here is a brief resume.
Kean is managing Brunei DPMM in the 12 team Singapore League. Equivalent to our Conference North Division.
Brunei are owned by Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Heir to the richest Monarchy in the world and who previously played for the club he owns.
Under Kean, Brunei have gone from 8th last season to closing in on the title as leaders of the 12 team Singapore League.
They won the League Cup and have a two-legged semi-final of the Singapore Cup coming up.
Once again Kean has tapped into a source of lucrative income. Having bled Venky’s dry and put the very future of Blackburn Rovers in jeopardy, during his uncontrolled spending frenzy.
In the article Kean once again plays the blame game, he blames his failure at Rovers on the selling of players such as – Jason Roberts, Brett Emerton, Keith Andrews, Ryan Nelsen, and Chris Samba. Failing to mention that the players just did not want to play for him, Andrews and Samba in particular.
He also blames a number of players coming into the club that he had not seen play. He refers to the 4 Portuguese players brought in by Shebby Singh. That are not even good enough to get into Eric Kinder’s U/21 team and are on massive wages. He fails to mention all the players that he had not seen play brought in with his blessing by Agent / Advisor to the club Jerome Anderson.
There is no mention by Kean of all the expensive ‘Dross, Kean saddled Rovers with in alleged collusion with his agent and friend Jerome (the man who ruined Blackburn Rovers) Anderson.
To mention them all would be tiresome but we all know who they are, but as a reminder here are a few.
Leon Best-5 Year Contract salary £37,000 per week.
Danny Murphy-5 Year Contract £40,000 pw.
David Goodwillie-3 Year Contract £30,000 pw.
Dickson Etuhu-5 Year Contract £40,000 pw.
Bradley Orr-5 Year Contract £30,000 pw.
(Rewarded by Kean for his public support on Sky TV following relegation).
Not to mention Ruben Rochina. Maurio Formica. Fabio Nunes. All allegedly on 5 Year Contract’s and £30,000 pw. And we won’t even go into Myles Anderson, Jerome Anderson son, who was given a Premiership contract, squad number, lucrative salary and couldn’t even play football.
You couldn’t make it up !.
All these and many more signed by Kean and recruited by Anderson. A Rovers source informed me that Kean, allegedly made himself a very rich man with his alleged ‘cut’ from agent fee’s, Anderson’s alleged reward to Kean for complying to his Rovers Recruitment.
How were the Roa family so neive? Why didn’t someone tell them what was going on?.
Well, Tom Finn and John Williams tried to-the thanks they got for their effort was the sack.
Then Paul Hunt, acting Chairman, tried the same and went public with his criticism of Kean. He also got the sack for his trouble.
Anderson and Kean were all powerful. They had Mrs Anuradha Desai ‘Eating Out Of Their Hands’. She would not hear a wrong word said about them. How she has paid the price !.
The big mystery is why Venky’s of London (Rovers Owners) not made public the mess Kean and Anderson left the club in, are they embarrassed?
A bigger mystery is why have not started legal proceedings to sue Anderson and his company for mismanagement, misleading advice, wrongful representation and gross negligence. The list is endless.
I reckon if you take into consideration Anderson’s advice to sack Allardyce and appoint Kean. Leading to relegation. Sacking Finn and Williams, lead to Anderson running amok with Rovers financial resources. Plunging the club into financial meltdown. And in breach of Financial Fair Play Rules, leading to a possible transfer embargo this January. £100 Million would be a conservative amount to sue Anderson for.
Speaking to journalist on the Lancashire Telegraph, (who shall remain nameless) the paper trail of Anderson’s and Kean’s transactions are sketchy.
No they are not.
That is the LT excuse for not doing their job properly, with some good investigative journalism.
That would certainly have happened at the Telegraph in the days of Peter White and Terry Ibbotson. When the Telegraph employed ‘proper’ journalist’. But then again in those days they had a proper editor.
The worse kept secret at Ewood Park is that Kean was allegedly ‘on the take’. He ruined the club. And until Derek Shaw took over as Managing Director, Kean went unchecked.
But he was Anuradha Desai’s ‘Blue-eyed Boy’. And he ‘kicked her in the teeth’. Just as he does to everyone he comes across.
I have read in the Lancashire Telegraph readers’ comments of criticism of Gary Bowyer during pre-season.
BLOODY UNBELIEVABLE.
Bowyer has started steps to save the Football club. With the support of Derek Shaw. He has been given the task of ridding the club of Kean’s expensive garbage. And making inroads into Rovers £60 Million debt.
Never mind having to manage the team as well. Thirty players have gone since Bowyer took the reins. 30 players off the wages bill. And as for criticism of Rovers transfer policy and Venky’s not providing funds. They can’t-simple as that, under FFP rules. In fairness to the Roa family they are providing money to pay off the contracts of some of Kean’s mistakes.
Danny Murphy and Dickson Etuhu £2 Million each for example. Instead of buying new players. It is painful but has to be done.
Rovers fans mock Burnley. We wouldn’t have it any other way. But Burnley for example, are financial secured, they run a tight ship. Rovers could go into liquidation. Burnley won’t. Neither will near neighbours Blackpool. Where owner Owen Oysten would never allow a Kean or Anderson anywhere near the place.
Amazingly some Rovers fans still have a good word for Kean-GET REAL. The man is a menace. His misdemeanours must be made public by Blackburn Rovers owners. They will be surprised at the sympathetic response and will gain much needed credibility.
Rovers must make sure that Kean does not work in football on these shores again. For everyone’s sake.
Reg.

Whilst not wanting to big Reg up what he writes is a good record of the vileness and greed of that man. Woe betide any club that has the shortsightedness to even contemplate letting that man loose again on a British football club. Unless it was Burnley. He should be banned from setting foot in The UK for ever.

KEAN REARS HIS ‘UGLY HEAD’


The awful Steve Kean took his first steps to attempt to get back into English Football when he launched a self-promoting

campaign last weekend with the help of the Daily Mirror.
The Daily Mirror ran a double page story regarding the awful Kean last Saturday 2nd August. Written by James Nursey under

the banner EXCLUSIVE.
For those of you who did not see the article here is a brief resume.
Kean is managing Brunei DPMM in the 12 team Singapore League. Equivalent to our Conference North Division.
Brunei are owned by Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Heir to the richest Monarchy in the world and who previously

played for the club he owns.
Under Kean, Brunei have gone from 8th last season to closing in on the title as leaders of the 12 team Singapore League.
They won the League Cup and have a two-legged semi-final of the Singapore Cup coming up.
Once again Kean has tapped into a source of lucrative income. Having bled Venky’s dry and put the very future of Blackburn

Rovers in jeopardy, during his uncontrolled spending frenzy.
In the article Kean once again plays the blame game, he blames his failure at Rovers on the selling of players such as –

Jason Roberts, Brett Emerton, Keith Andrews, Ryan Nelsen, and Chris Samba. Failing to mention that the players just did

not want to play for him, Andrews and Samba in particular.
He also blames a number of players coming into the club that he had not seen play. He refers to the 4 Portuguese players

brought in by Shebby Singh. That are not even good enough to get into Eric Kinder’s U/21 team and are on massive wages. He

fails to mention all the players that he had not seen play brought in with his blessing by Agent / Advisor to the club

Jerome Anderson.
There is no mention by Kean of all the expensive ‘Dross, Kean saddled Rovers with in alleged collusion with his agent and

friend Jerome (the man who ruined Blackburn Rovers) Anderson.
To mention them all would be tiresome but we all know who they are, but as a reminder here are a few.
Leon Best-5 Year Contract salary £37,000 per week.
Danny Murphy-5 Year Contract £40,000 pw.
David Goodwillie-3 Year Contract £30,000 pw.
Dickson Etuhu-5 Year Contract £40,000 pw.
Bradley Orr-5 Year Contract £30,000 pw.
(Rewarded by Kean for his public support on Sky TV following relegation).
Not to mention Ruben Rochina. Maurio Formica. Fabio Nunes. All allegedly on 5 Year Contract’s and £30,000 pw. And we won’t

even go into Myles Anderson, Jerome Anderson son, who was given a Premiership contract, squad number, lucrative salary and

couldn’t even play football.
You couldn’t make it up !.
All these and many more signed by Kean and recruited by Anderson. A Rovers source informed me that Kean, allegedly made

himself a very rich man with his alleged ‘cut’ from agent fee’s, Anderson’s alleged reward to Kean for complying to his

Rovers Recruitment.
How were the Roa family so neive? Why didn’t someone tell them what was going on?.
Well, Tom Finn and John Williams tried to-the thanks they got for their effort was the sack.
Then Paul Hunt, acting Chairman, tried the same and went public with his criticism of Kean. He also got the sack for his

trouble.
Anderson and Kean were all powerful. They had Mrs Anuradha Desai ‘Eating Out Of Their Hands’. She would not hear a wrong

word said about them. How she has paid the price !.
The big mystery is why Venky’s of London (Rovers Owners) not made public the mess Kean and Anderson left the club in, are

they embarrassed?
A bigger mystery is why have not started legal proceedings to sue Anderson and his company for mismanagement, misleading

advice, wrongful representation and gross negligence. The list is endless.
I reckon if you take into consideration Anderson’s advice to sack Allardyce and appoint Kean. Leading to relegation.

Sacking Finn and Williams, lead to Anderson running amok with Rovers financial resources. Plunging the club into financial

meltdown. And in breach of Financial Fair Play Rules, leading to a possible transfer embargo this January. £100 Million

would be a conservative amount to sue Anderson for.
Speaking to journalist on the Lancashire Telegraph, (who shall remain nameless) the paper trail of Anderson’s and Kean’s

transactions are sketchy.
No they are not.
That is the LT excuse for not doing their job properly, with some good investigative journalism.
That would certainly have happened at the Telegraph in the days of Peter White and Terry Ibbotson. When the Telegraph

employed ‘proper’ journalist’. But then again in those days they had a proper editor.
The worse kept secret at Ewood Park is that Kean was allegedly ‘on the take’. He ruined the club. And until Derek Shaw

took over as Managing Director, Kean went unchecked.
But he was Anuradha Desai’s ‘Blue-eyed Boy’. And he ‘kicked her in the teeth’. Just as he does to everyone he comes

across.
I have read in the Lancashire Telegraph readers’ comments of criticism of Gary Bowyer during pre-season.
BLOODY UNBELIEVABLE.
Bowyer has started steps to save the Football club. With the support of Derek Shaw. He has been given the task of ridding

the club of Kean’s expensive garbage. And making inroads into Rovers £60 Million debt.
Never mind having to manage the team as well. Thirty players have gone since Bowyer took the reins. 30 players off the

wages bill. And as for criticism of Rovers transfer policy and Venky’s not providing funds. They can’t-simple as that,

under FFP rules. In fairness to the Roa family they are providing money to pay off the contracts of some of Kean’s

mistakes.
Danny Murphy and Dickson Etuhu £2 Million each for example. Instead of buying new players. It is painful but has to be

done.
Rovers fans mock Burnley. We wouldn’t have it any other way. But Burnley for example, are financial secured, they run a

tight ship. Rovers could go into liquidation. Burnley won’t. Neither will near neighbours Blackpool. Where owner Owen

Oysten would never allow a Kean or Anderson anywhere near the place.
Amazingly some Rovers fans still have a good word for Kean-GET REAL. The man is a menace. His misdemeanours must be made

public by Blackburn Rovers owners. They will be surprised at the sympathetic response and will gain much needed

credibility.

The vagaries of FFP.

Manchester City were the first British club to be sanctioned for breaching FFP rules, they are initially fined circa £50 million and a squad reduction of 4 players from 25 to 21 for all European competitions this coming season.

On appeal the fine was conditionally reduced providing they reduce their debt to fall within FFP guidelines over the next two seasons.

Any fines extracted will be taken from earnings made in European competition this coming season, if they comply with FFP within the agreed period between £25 to £35 million will be returned to them.

Reading the details they are effectively ONLY allowed to spend £49 million on players this season (nett) they have just spent circa £32 million on yet another foreign player I suspect many of us have never heard of, I certainly haven't.

£49 million.

Lets look at that from the perspective of all the clubs in, say, Division 2.

I would hazard a guess that if you added up the total nett spending capability of all the clubs in Division 2 this coming season it wouldn't come anywhere near the £49 million that City are restricted to spending.

Pretty sure all Division 1 clubs combined would struggle to meet that figure.

Championship? - probably.

The point I am making is the way that FFP has been implemented has nothing to do with fairness, I totally agree that clubs should live within their means, that's fine when you are a Man City of this world, but what about the rest?

Fair Play it ain't.

It's a way of ensuring the bigger clubs get a bigger slice of the cake and to Hell with the rest.
Yes spot on. Frankly it would not surprise me if we did not see a breakaway and a new league formed with the top six or so and the Elite from Europe leaving the rest of us to get on with it. You can guess where al the TV money will go. Sad but true.
As I have said many times before, I honestly believe that European Super League based on a franchise system is on the cards pretty soon, probably sooner than most think.

The top clubs in Europe are now much bigger than UEFA and they don't like the restrictions being placed on them by FFP, especially as their owners have pumped billions into them to make them top clubs.
It's no secret that the top teams (most wealthy) in Europe have been discussing a European Super League for some time. I believe this is the most logical path and the decision has already been made it's just a matter of when. Sky will of course follow and leave all the other clubs scrambling around for the scraps of money on offer from ITV and the BBC.

Sky are leading the way not following, they have already created Sky Sports 5, a channel devoted to European football, it's free to join for 2 years and simply by activating it you get a reduction in broadband fees.

Now I have had Sky more or less since day one, I have never, ever had to "activate" a channel on Sky before, the only channels that need activating are pay per view.

Having bled Venky’s dry and put the very future of Blackburn Rovers in jeopardy, during his uncontrolled spending frenzy. In the article Kean once again plays the blame game, he blames his failure at Rovers on the selling of players such as – Jason Roberts, Brett Emerton, Keith Andrews, Ryan Nelsen, and Chris Samba. Failing to mention that the players just did not want to play for him, Andrews and Samba in particular. He also blames a number of players coming into the club that he had not seen play. He refers to the 4 Portuguese players brought in by Shebby Singh. That are not even good enough to get into Eric Kinder’s U/21 team and are on massive wages. He fails to mention all the players that he had not seen play brought in with his blessing by Agent / Advisor to the club Jerome Anderson. There is no mention by Kean of all the expensive ‘Dross, Kean saddled Rovers with in alleged collusion with his agent and friend Jerome (the man who ruined Blackburn Rovers) Anderson. To mention them all would be tiresome but we all know who they are, but as a reminder here are a few. Leon Best-5 Year Contract salary £37,000 per week. Danny Murphy-5 Year Contract £40,000 pw. David Goodwillie-3 Year Contract £30,000 pw. Dickson Etuhu-5 Year Contract £40,000 pw. Bradley Orr-5 Year Contract £30,000 pw. (Rewarded by Kean for his public support on Sky TV following relegation). Not to mention Ruben Rochina. Maurio Formica. Fabio Nunes. All allegedly on 5 Year Contract’s and £30,000 pw. And we won’t even go into Myles Anderson, Jerome Anderson son, who was given a Premiership contract, squad number, lucrative salary and couldn’t even play football. You couldn’t make it up !. All these and many more signed by Kean and recruited by Anderson. A Rovers source informed me that Kean, allegedly made himself a very rich man with his alleged ‘cut’ from agent fee’s, Anderson’s alleged reward to Kean for complying to his Rovers Recruitment. How were the Roa family so neive? Why didn’t someone tell them what was going on?. Well, Tom Finn and John Williams tried to-the thanks they got for their effort was the sack. Then Paul Hunt, acting Chairman, tried the same and went public with his criticism of Kean. He also got the sack for his trouble. Anderson and Kean were all powerful. They had Mrs Anuradha Desai ‘Eating Out Of Their Hands’. She would not hear a wrong word said about them. How she has paid the price !. The big mystery is why Venky’s of London (Rovers Owners) not made public the mess Kean and Anderson left the club in, are they embarrassed? A bigger mystery is why have not started legal proceedings to sue Anderson and his company for mismanagement, misleading advice, wrongful representation and gross negligence. The list is endless. I reckon if you take into consideration Anderson’s advice to sack Allardyce and appoint Kean. Leading to relegation. Sacking Finn and Williams, lead to Anderson running amok with Rovers financial resources. Plunging the club into financial meltdown. And in breach of Financial Fair Play Rules, leading to a possible transfer embargo this January. £100 Million would be a conservative amount to sue Anderson for. Speaking to journalist on the Lancashire Telegraph, (who shall remain nameless) the paper trail of Anderson’s and Kean’s transactions are sketchy. No they are not. That is the LT excuse for not doing their job properly, with some good investigative journalism. That would certainly have happened at the Telegraph in the days of Peter White and Terry Ibbotson. When the Telegraph employed ‘proper’ journalist’. But then again in those days they had a proper editor. The worse kept secret at Ewood Park is that Kean was allegedly ‘on the take’. He ruined the club. And until Derek Shaw took over as Managing Director, Kean went unchecked. But he was Anuradha Desai’s ‘Blue-eyed Boy’. And he ‘kicked her in the teeth’. Just as he does to everyone he comes across. I have read in the Lancashire Telegraph readers’ comments of criticism of Gary Bowyer during pre-season. BLOODY UNBELIEVABLE. Bowyer has started steps to save the Football club. With the support of Derek Shaw. He has been given the task of ridding the club of Kean’s expensive garbage. And making inroads into Rovers £60 Million debt. Never mind having to manage the team as well. Thirty players have gone since Bowyer took the reins. 30 players off the wages bill. And as for criticism of Rovers transfer policy and Venky’s not providing funds. They can’t-simple as that, under FFP rules. In fairness to the Roa family they are providing money to pay off the contracts of some of Kean’s mistakes. Danny Murphy and Dickson Etuhu £2 Million each for example. Instead of buying new players. It is painful but has to be done. Rovers fans mock Burnley. We wouldn’t have it any other way. But Burnley for example, are financial secured, they run a tight ship. Rovers could go into liquidation. Burnley won’t. Neither will near neighbours Blackpool. Where owner Owen Oysten would never allow a Kean or Anderson anywhere near the place. Amazingly some Rovers fans still have a good word for Kean-GET REAL. The man is a menace. His misdemeanours must be made public by Blackburn Rovers owners. They will be surprised at the sympathetic response and will gain much needed credibility. Rovers must make sure that Kean does not work in football on these shores again. For everyone’s sake. Reg.

KEAN REARS HIS ‘UGLY HEAD’
The awful Steve Kean took his first steps to attempt to get back into English Football when he launched a self-promoting campaign last weekend with the help of the Daily Mirror.
The Daily Mirror ran a double page story regarding the awful Kean last Saturday 2nd August. Written by James Nursey under the banner EXCLUSIVE.
For those of you who did not see the article here is a brief resume.
Kean is managing Brunei DPMM in the 12 team Singapore League. Equivalent to our Conference North Division.
Brunei are owned by Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Heir to the richest Monarchy in the world and who previously played for the club he owns.
