Defender Givet fears Ewood exit after Welsh axe

GAEL Givet fears he may have played his last game for Blackburn Rovers – as the club’s season reached crisis point at the weekend.

Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Swansea leaves Rovers still three points from Premier League safety with just four games to go and facing a disastrous defensive shortage.

Givet was withdrawn from Rovers’ squad on the morning of the game after Kean claimed he “was not in the right frame of mind” to play, having originally named him in his starting line up.

Contrary to reports, the Lancashire Telegraph understands the Frenchman did not refuse to play and that he was withdrawn after a heated exchange of words with the manager at the hotel pre match.

Givet’s absence forced Kean to play Jason Lowe as a makeshift left back and, with Grant Hanley now likely to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury, Scott Dann is currently Rovers’ only available centre back.

The club will seek talks with Givet in the next few days to try to sort the situation but the player, who is expecting to be hit with a fine for his part, fears there is no way back.

Sources close to Givet say Givet has become increasingly disillusioned with life at Ewood Park and has made it known he wants a move away in the summer.

Due to a combination of injury and falling out favour, Givet has not featured in Rovers’ last five matches, all of which they have lost to slide back into the relegation mire.

Sources close to Givet say the player was “devastated” to not be involved on Saturday but that, after an argument between him and Kean Saturday morning, the manager decided he was not ‘mentally right’.

It is now understood Givet fears he will be left frozen out until the summer, leaving him helpless in the club’s fight to preserve their Premier League status. Suggestions his unavailability is due to ‘financial issues’ at the club are inaccurate.

Kean himself remain guarded on the situation but, while refusing to go into it, insisted Givet was not ready to play.

He said: “I spoke with Gael earlier Saturday morning and after a chat with him it was very apparent to me that he was not in the right frame of mind to be involved in this game.

“I don’t want to get involved into why, we will keep that private as a club, but it was very apparent he couldn’t be on the pitch.

“I’m not saying he doesn’t want to play. I’m saying his mindset was not right. The things we spoke about I will keep very private but we needed him today.

“We wanted him to play but after the chat that was not going to be the case. I had to select a side and a bench that was going to attempt to do what we needed to get points.

“We will speak with him again and if he is in a better frame of mind then great but today he was nowhere near in the right frame of mind and that is disappointing.

“I can’t get inside someone’s head. I can only tell him how much we need him and how much his team mates need him.

“I don’t know what the rumours are. I said to him we need you to play today, I need you to start and he was nowhere near in the right frame of mind to do that.”

As well as probably losing Hanley for the season through injury, Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and Yakubu (knee) were substituted early in the second half with injuries.

“This is not for me,” said Kean. “It is for everyone. It is for everyone’s team mates, the club, it is not for me. I am the same as the players and the fans, I want us to win but we have to win together and lose together. We have to play for each other and go the extra mile for each other.

“You look at David Dunn, his Achilles is screaming, Bradley Orr has taken an injection to play. We need players who are ready even if they are injured or even if their heads are not right for whatever reason.”

Why is this the only club who has trouble with its players ?

Who do you believe ?

With other clubs - Everton - its kept inhouse whereas SK seems to need a PR excuse why Rovers are loosing - this time down to Givet

Time to go Kean you have taken the club to the pits

No Season Ticket next year for me until there is a change of Manager - enough of the fairy tales and excuses - we are poor and deserve to be in the bottom 3

So "...Givet has become disillusioned with life at Ewood..."

Well, join the club, Gael! So have we all. More lies from Kean, more shabby mis-management and more reasons for long-standing fans to find other things to do on Saturdays, rather than pay good money to help pay the wages of this appalling individual who constantly shames and disgraces the good name of our football club.

Kean out! Venky's out! And the sooner the better!

Keans true colours flow out of this mess. Trying to blame Givet for not playing when EVERYONE knows he just spouts lie after lie after lie.

His arrogance knows no bounds, clearly the senior players saved the club last year but he knew better and got rid of them all thinking he could mould his own team with his genius in the transfer window and with tactics.

His only skill seems to be manipulating the media to buying in to his stories of being unlucky, false positions, refs cheating us, injuries, waiting for senior players to come back from (imaginary) injuries, new players bedding in, not having any transfer windows to replace senior players (the latest excuse!) as of Saturday morning........

Anyway you all know it - it's amazing we weren't relegated by March to be honest!

Kean you are not yet anywhere near SAF, so don't get delusional. Win the next 4 games and that is the only way to hope to avoid relegation. To be fair I do not see him getting another point.

Agree totally apart from the bit about Dunn? why did it take him an hour to wake up and start to play?

Like you I was at the game and it was clear from the start that the players were already accepting that we are a relegated side.

Whilst Kean is the biggest pile of no hope clueless S--t imaginable, you would at least hope the players would have a little personal pride and put up a bit of a fight. Clearly Robinson and eventually Dunn pushed themselves to the limit, but the other players embarressed themselves with this pathetic show.

Swansea must be one of the smallest teams around but they physically dominated Rovers in every way possible on saturday, come on lads; grow a pair and get stuck in! ignore the idiot in the dugout and sort it out yourselves, if we are to go down at least go down fighting and with some spirit & pride in your performance.

On another point, I have not seen the full Kean interview following the game, but I believe he is claiming the injuries put us on the back foot starting with Olsen before the game followed by the injuries to Hanley, Junior & Yak! are we so dependent on Olsen that it destroys us as a team if he dosn`t play? and I don`t know what game the deluded one was watching but Swansea had taken us to the cleaners many time over long before Hanley & co had to go off. Typical **** from Kean, what a man.

He is nothing but a modern day Judas,selling out the fancs for his peices of silver.

He didn't need to convince them of anything, his involvement in Rovers is far far greater than he let's on

I hope a few people might just be re-thinking their opinion about Kevin Keegan, and honour, and integrity.

The reason people are bigging Scummer Kean up is 'because he's proved he's no quitter'.

There's nothing wrong with quitting if you know you're not up to the task and you're humble enough to admit it.

Some qualities are overrated and 'not being a quitter' is one of them.

Kean is dragging the whole town down and that will mean people losing their jobs when Rovers go down. The other week, Tony Pulis successfully escaped a driving ban by arguing in court that if he were banned it might affect Stokes' chances of staying in the Premiership, and that if they were relegated it would adversely affect the economy of the city. The same argument is just as relevant for Blackburn, but Kean is too smug and arrogant to consider it. He has nothing but contempt for everyone living in and around Blackburn.

whilst the situation is clearly a disaster, i don't think it is right to try and get him out over the next 4 games.
maybe when it's mathematically impossible, but whilst there is still a chance, i'd rather the crowd focused on supporting the team.

haven't posted on here for a while, due to the mindless ranting. i have to admit to feeling a little disappointed at the way we have played recently. the retention of the ball has been extremely poor and i think is largely to blame for the defeats.
add that to some poor tactical decision from both manager and players, and the chronic inexperience across the board, and i think you have one inevitable outcome.

It seems Givet has told you what he thinks of you and what the rest of the players are thinking, too. They DON’T WANT YOU and THEY DON’T WANT VENKY’S. And don’t pretend you did not realise that long ago.

Robinson apart, the players might just as well have walked out with white flags on Saturday. It’s pay-back time, Mr Kean.

However I believe we should hold the protests off during the match until it's all done and dusted.

Bad team performances are about bad management Mr Kean! We do have some poor players, but not many. Unfortunately at the moment we have a poor defence, Mr Desperate Dann at the centre of it. It is really not my intention to target a single player, there are others, but he is at best a Championship player. He helped to take Birmingham down and it looks like he will do the same for us

So Givets head wasn't in the right place, no hold on a minute Keanochio, its your head thats not in the right place. Its still at Ewood you utter bald headed twonk. Givet could have saved your sorry arse but rhino head couldn't see it. You really are the thickest nomark in football.
Apart from Phil Thompson who says you are doing a great job. The question is, what will be left after the worst regime in the clubs history departs. One thing is for certain Keanochio, you better find another career because unless Phil Thompson puts the feelers out and sneaks you in Anfield as a ball boy, you are finished in the game baked bean head.
Throw in the towel you stupid useless lying dog vomit.

Saying that....you have to give him credit, because after the game on Saturday he is simply looking at two wins and a draw and all will be "sweet as"
BLOODY GENIUS Mr "conman" Kean.....sadly you have no one that has understood you from the outset....including the Venky,s and especially the increasing number of players not desperate for a contract and can find work elsewhere !!!!!

Exactly.

Quite honestly my dad had better footballing credentials then Steve Kean. He played for London schoolboys with Steve Perryman, Arsenal youth team and finished his career with over 100 appearances in the conference (or whatever it was called back then).

It was an utter joke that Kean even got this job, let alone keep it.

Will we see an apology from the mainstream media who have slagged off our fans all season? I doubt it. So who has been proved right?

I said on this board LAST SEASON that even if we did survive (purely down to Big Sams points) that with Keans track record relegation was inevitable this season.

I have to admit he's exceeded my expectations as I thought we'd be down by now.

Our only realistic games to get points now is Norwich (h) and Wigan (h). That's 6 points. Given QPR and Wigan are 3pts clear (and showing a lot more fight with far more credible football men at the helm), for me there is no way to recover now.

Our only chance is if SK swallows his pride and gets Salgado, Vuckcevic and Givet involved in the team ASAP. We all know there's fat chance of this happening.

We can only pray that if we do go down Kean will do the decent thing, but even that seems unlikely to me. This guy has zero pride or accountability whatsoever. We'll be lucky to survive in the Championship with this clown.

I like Nzonzi as a player but his attitude was an utter disgrace on saturday. I'm glad MOTD highlighted it.

We're a proud team with proud fans. If we get beat whilst trying our best that's one thing. But to act like a petulant child and sulk when things aren't going your way on the pitch is unacceptable.

Problem is thanks to SKs 'policy' of buying players and not using them (Vuckcevic), Nzonzi is all we have.

For all this patronising talk we've had from the likes of Lawronsen all season "they're still playing for him gary.." well just look at that clip of Nzonzi.

I do not believe the players are playing for him at all. And like with all our other senior pros who have had words and been forced out, Givet is next.

Even if Kean is a completely deluded wally, he has really shot himself in the foot this season with his apalling man management. You could actually make the nucleus of a pretty good team out the players he's alienated (and/or forced out) this season:

Salgado - Nelsen - Samba - Givet
Emerton - Vuckcevic - Diouf
Roberts - Kalinic

I'd take most of the above over our sorry shower right now. Even Diouf, at least he played 100% for our shirt.

Kalinic and Yakubu would have been a pretty decent strike force, no?

Rovers' fans have become so dispirited and dismayed with emotions ranging from intense anger to total indifference, I'm surprised so many went.

You don't need to tell us we are rubbish matey boy. Just to bring you up to speed, the protests which have been shown on TV are NOT just aimed at Kean; the owners, who you may have noticed were not represented on Saturday, have ripped the heart out of our club leaving it in chaos and in real danger of total meltdown. TV's misrepresentation of the fans' actions has been disgraceful.

Kean is a master of targeting an opponent or run of games from which we are going to get points. Nothing unusual about that you might say. The problem is he doesn't keep these comments to himself but announces them to the world thereby immediately rubbing up those opponents as well as putting pressure on himself and the team.

We were sold the idea he was going to change the hoofball style of Sam only for us to descend into playing an ineffective, half-a$$ed version of it.

Rodgers at Swansea has shown the clown what sticking to your principles is all about and, in my opinion, deserves to be manager of the year. Kean on the other hand has repeatedly shown he does not possess the b@ll$ to do anything a normal, self respecting manager would do, be it sticking to his guns (whatever they are) or standing up to the owners. It is also been suggested he is a less than honourable individual.

Did you know he is a client of agent Jerome Anderson?

Did you know Mr Anderson was also advising the new owners (who had admitted not knowing anything about football) when Kean, his client, got the job after Sam was sacked? Had you ever heard of Steve Kean before he got the job? Do you think anyone who knew nothing about football would have?

Go figure.

Did you know Sam suggested he had been stabbed in the back (something denied by both Kean and his agent/owner’s advisor)?

Did you know he travels to India every month to give them an update? Mind you, they have only bothered coming to Blackburn once since last November.

Did you know he has players foisted on him by parasitic individuals (agents/advisors) without any reference to him?

Did you know he has not picked players (Salgado, Roberts are the one’s we know for sure) because they would be entitled to a contract extension/additional payments ?

Well now you do and the list could go on.

This excuse for a man has lied consistently to the supporters and is seen as a puppet for the owners. In short, pathetic.

Looking at them from a distance, by the way, Swansea have been outstanding this year, a breath of fresh air almost. Perhaps you just need a little more pace and guile up top; I’m sure that will come when the additional income and kudos from your time in the Prem. kicks in and Rodgers will be able to strengthen the squad.

Their style of football is to be admired. I for one wish them every success.

Rovers' fans have become so dispirited and dismayed with emotions ranging from intense anger to total indifference, I'm surprised so many went.

You don't need to tell us we are rubbish matey boy. Just to bring you up to speed, the protests which have been shown on TV are NOT just aimed at Kean; the owners, who you may have noticed were not represented on Saturday, have ripped the heart out of our club leaving it in chaos and in real danger of total meltdown. TV's misrepresentation of the fans' actions has been disgraceful.

Kean is a master of targeting an opponent or run of games from which we are going to get points. Nothing unusual about that you might say. The problem is he doesn't keep these comments to himself but announces them to the world thereby immediately rubbing up those opponents as well as putting pressure on himself and the team.

We were sold the idea he was going to change the hoofball style of Sam only for us to descend into playing an ineffective, half-a$$ed version of it.

Rodgers at Swansea has shown the clown what sticking to your principles is all about and, in my opinion, deserves to be manager of the year. Kean on the other hand has repeatedly shown he does not possess the b@ll$ to do anything a normal, self respecting manager would do, be it sticking to his guns (whatever they are) or standing up to the owners. It is also been suggested he is a less than honourable individual.

Did you know he is a client of agent Jerome Anderson?

Did you know Mr Anderson was also advising the new owners (who had admitted not knowing anything about football) when Kean, his client, got the job after Sam was sacked? Had you ever heard of Steve Kean before he got the job? Do you think anyone who knew nothing about football would have?

Go figure.

Did you know Sam suggested he had been stabbed in the back (something denied by both Kean and his agent/owner’s advisor)?

Did you know he travels to India every month to give them an update? Mind you, they have only bothered coming to Blackburn once since last November.

Did you know he has players foisted on him by parasitic individuals (agents/advisors) without any reference to him?

Did you know he has not picked players (Salgado, Roberts are the one’s we know for sure) because they would be entitled to a contract extension/additional payments ?

Well now you do and the list could go on.

This excuse for a man has lied consistently to the supporters and is seen as a puppet for the owners. In short, pathetic.

Looking at them from a distance, by the way, Swansea have been outstanding this year, a breath of fresh air almost. Perhaps you just need a little more pace and guile up top; I’m sure that will come when the additional income and kudos from your time in the Prem. kicks in and Rodgers will be able to strengthen the squad.

Their style of football is to be admired. I for one wish them every success.
Nailed on mate, nailed on.

No good keep blaming Kean. He's merely the front man/stooge. The real problem is the Rao family and their "advisers". If they go Kean will surely follow albeit, it is too late now, i only hope we don't drop straight through the Championship. Something I think is a distinct possibility with them in charge.

Is it really?

WHU should never have been relegated with the squad they had (it included Parker, the PotY and Ba who was scoring for fun remember, amongst others).

BFS has spent a fortune (by Championship/Venkys standards) and is still scrapping for automatic promotion.

What about their previous half dozen home games?

Can we please get out of this rose tinted view of everything being sweetness and light (on the field at least) when BFS was here?

It isn't him going, it's the odious bunch masquerading as the club's owners which are the problem.

The clown who replaced him and the circumstances in which he got the job are just symptoms of the terminal disease which goes by the name of Venkys.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. I'm sorry mate, but Kean absolutely deserves some blame here.

Is anybody forcing him to stay as manager? He could leave at any moment if he so wishes.

He must realise deep down by now SURELY that he is not cut out for top flight management. Far better men then him have quite managerial posts as they see the club needs a change.

So if he's causing so much distress to a club, causing many employees at the club to lose their jobs next year, and if he has to have a bodyguard (sure), then why not just... LEAVE?

Answer... £ £ £

And that my friend is despicable. Don't get me wrong, Venkys are clearly the main culprits, but Kean has played his part in this disgusting Rovers period. First by backstabbing Big Sam, and now by refusing to let go of his one chance in football top flight management and very cushty salary.

A rather unfair assesment of your fellow contributor based on his description of the season ticket, n'est ce pas?

You may have noticed a lot of posts from ST holders not renewing; this would suggest there are plenty of people already willing to "do it alone"?

As for the future, if all we have to concern ourselves with is the use of cards instead of books then I would be a happy man.

Somehow I don't think it will be.

Desertion is not what is being promoted. More a temporary withdrawal of financial support for a corrupt regime which is threatening to make your season ticket/card (or whatever you want to call it) one of the last you'll ever be able to buy.

Do you actually think these people give two hoots about what we think or whether we care? The bottom line is they only care about, well, the bottom line. That much at least is clear.

Interesting conspiracy theory by the way. Do you really think they could organise anything that didn't involve smashing up their own town?

Pi$$ ups and breweries spring to mind.

However dedicated a supporter is there is only so much they can take and I am afraid this supporter has well and truly had enough. I refuse point blank to give anymore of my money to the money grabbing manager and owners. I will from now on support the club from afar, hoping that the owners and manager do the decent thing and get the hell out of Ewood Park so that we can rebuild from the ashes left behind.
In the mean time I will continue my love of football by watching Darwen FC. At least they try.

Thats a good manager right there. Kean wont make a compromise even if it means relegation.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. I'm sorry mate, but Kean absolutely deserves some blame here.

Is anybody forcing him to stay as manager? He could leave at any moment if he so wishes.

He must realise deep down by now SURELY that he is not cut out for top flight management. Far better men then him have quite managerial posts as they see the club needs a change.

So if he's causing so much distress to a club, causing many employees at the club to lose their jobs next year, and if he has to have a bodyguard (sure), then why not just... LEAVE?

Answer... £ £ £

And that my friend is despicable. Don't get me wrong, Venkys are clearly the main culprits, but Kean has played his part in this disgusting Rovers period. First by backstabbing Big Sam, and now by refusing to let go of his one chance in football top flight management and very cushty salary.

Chris Sutton. I don't mean to say that Kean is blameless - far from it. Clearly out of his depth. The main point of my argument is that it is the RAO family and their advisers who are the main culprits. Kean lacks integrity and will not go as long as the owners keep paying him handsomely to do their bidding. I really think that you and I are singing from the same hymn sheet. RAO/KEAN OUT!!

Relegation might be the best option for us anyway. I can't see venkys getting bored until the parachute payments end 4 years after relegation. We might have to wait that long. Maybe kean will still be manager til then too. I know that sounds awful, but not much we can do if they won't go. Nobody wanted to buy Rovers, no-one will want to buy us until we are affordable and/or venkys realise they can only get about £20M for us. Hence the Supporters Trust idea of selling 20,000 shares at £1,000 each.

Don't blame the Walkers Trust, nor expect them or the FA to take any action to bail us out. venkys have paid their money, they can do whatever they wish. The fact they have ripped the heart out of our club is morally wrong but no more than that. Don't ask kean to resign, his ego won't allow him.

So expect a mass exodus/clear out over the summer, replaced by poor/cheap replacements which in turn likely means another relegation.

Don't renew season tickets and don't go to Ewood. Very drastic I know, but we need to hasten he venkys exit and I can't think of any other way to do it.

King knob spouts again tonight on Sky! is there no way of shutting him up?

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean hopes the latest planned protest by a section of the club's fans does not distract his team.

Rovers are mired in a relegation struggle and Kean has been a target for some of the Ewood Park boo-boys already this season.

And the Scot believes his charges can escape the drop by producing performances similar to those that earned an away draw at Liverpool and victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Kean said: "I hope that the protest is small. The fans inside the ground of late have been excellent and the travelling fans have been very good.

"We have a young team that has certainly performed better when the atmosphere has been hostile towards the opposition and I am hopeful that they will continue to support us.

"We have a focus and that is on breaking the sequence that we are in, making sure we can get a good start in the game and I am very confident that we can get a result this week.

"If you can go to Anfield and draw, and go to Old Trafford and win, there is no reason why we can't beat Norwich and Wigan at home and take something from the games away at Spurs and away at Chelsea."

"He's very confident" - again.

Crackpot nothing but.

Desperate times for conman Kean to be sure....and we can see the story line he is going to stick with to the end...basically it was the supporters who ruined the season...especially when we had just got a run going (of back to back wins !!).
Even though the MAJORITY of the supporters have held off the last couple of months from protesting at your blatantly obvious shortcomings in your team selection, the team fitness level to your tactics through to the after-match comments (how the hell the players follow you I do not know !?)....
They cannot be expected to accept this continuing crap without showing some of their frustration...
So expect reaction on either or both of the last two home games ...you have only yourself to blame for your many shortcomings and deceit throughout.

Relegation this season is a certaintity. Last season we stayed up because a number of senior quality players carried Kean and kept us up. Now they are gone, there is no one to make up for his glaring ineptitude.

More departures will follow in the summer, followed by even cheaper replacements. The Venkys will stay as long as they can strip the club of funds, as soon as the well runs dry, they will put us into administration.

The other option is to play Nzonzi at centre back, a far more likely option IMO. Not even Kean is inept enough to play the horrifically inept agents son in a first team game is he?

Have you not got a buy back clause to protect the club?

This has been a big mistake - you must persuade Venkys to sell up and leave!

34th..
Morst. If the club was run to be 'break even' we would have to be efficient and pragmatic.

You would then complain that the style of football isnt to your liking.

Hopefully you can see now that the club was being exceptionally well run pre-Venkys, when you were on here every day moaning that the style of football wasnt to your liking.
.
How petty that seems, looking back
Pathetic Jeppo. Fans need to be together at this point to rid the club of the worst manager and owners in history and all you can do is try and point score.
.
If its history you want go back to Sparky and Souness - also well run on a tight budget but playing great football. Funny but West ham and Newcastle fans seem to think the same about hoofy as most Rovers fans?
.
Have you actually got any suggestions that might be useful for action fans can take? Are you going to renew if Kean is still manager? How petty you sound Jeppo?
.
Kean Out!
well...I could just bleat on about "not going to any more games" which is all you have done for the last 3 years. What a supporter YOU are!
.
Fact is Morst, I'm almost as frustrated at the ignorance shown by people such as you as I am about the sorry state that our club is in.
.
Take some responsibility for your comments Morst, rather than just sliding from one negative rant into another!

Ladies team won 11 1 perhaps we should play them, after all the first team played like girls blouses.

Wild Rover says...

So to sum up..
we should all join Morst in the armchair and not support our club at all..
Because we dont like Venkys we should aim to Bankrupt our own club, if we buy a season ticket we are complicit in the "crime" ..or am I being pedantic?
Well call me old fashioned but I support my club regardless of the regime and I have renewed and will continue to go.
Morst, you wanted Sam out and even said that if we were relegated because of it, that would be a small price to pay...
I have been on this site a long time don't forget

@Wild Rover - not only pedantic on the season ticket wallets but also very naive if you believe that paying your cheque to BRFC is 'supporting' - OUR....yes OUR club. Our money should go towards financially supporting our club and I don't believe that you are that naive as to believe that that will happen. Therefore I refuse to give a single penny of my not very substantial earnings to those intent on raping our club.
I respect your loyalty but these are desperate times which call for drastic actions.
No, I don't believe that you are helping Blackburn Rovers by burying your head into the sand.
ps I am an Allardyce fan and always have been.

The best way to help the club is not to turn up at a game. There's not a hope in hell of staying up, so an empty Ewood park with no supporters is the only way to get the message across.
