COMMENT: Time to be united at Rovers
NOW is the time for everyone at Blackburn Rovers to unite.
After almost two years of being a divided club, Steve Kean’s resignation has to be the catalyst for fixing what had become a broken institution.
Rovers fans will continue to get criticised by some in the game, but these people should just be ignored and dismissed as ‘experts’ who simply did not know what they were talking about.
Rovers supporters have got what they have been calling for for a long time and it is vital they now respond in the right way.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if there was a bumper Ewood Park crowd on Saturday for the crucial visit of Wolves to show everyone what this club means to everyone. This is everyone’s chance to fall back in love with their football club.
Many will continue to claim Kean deserved to be given a chance at Ewood Park. They can claim that all they like but we all know different.
He was given a chance, a far bigger chance than many managers get after what was almost continual failure.
In the long run though, the people who will decide whether this nightmare is really over is Venky’s.
Steve Kean was just a symptom of their horrific reign to date. The blame lies firmly at their door and you just hope they have learnt from their mistakes.
They are fortunate that the majority of Rovers’ fans seem prepared to give them a second chance.
They seem prepared to give Venky’s an opportunity to right their wrongs. They have to take it.
The next managerial appointment is a massive decision. They can’t rush it and have to take advice from people who want the best for the football club. They are lucky they have some of the best supporters around.
