How embarrassing, how lower can Rover’s sink in the eyes of the football world?
Having got rid of two of the game’s best administrators, John Williams and tom Finn, we have now been turned down by Adam Pearson of Hull city. Yes that Adam Pearson who presided over last year’s Hull relegation debacle.
Remember Ian Dowie being brought in to save Hull? A lot of good that did, not to mention their precarious financial position.
Why don’t Vencky’s go the whole hog and offer chief / executive / director of football, chairman or whatever to Peter Risdle late of Leeds Utd and Cardiff, he is looking for a job. Risdale managed to take Leeds into oblivion and almost bankrupted Cardiff City, sounds about right for Mrs Desai and her motley crew.
Williams and Finn must be having a right “chuckle” !
P.S. Reg says, “give the job to press officer Paul Agnew or P.A. Lynsay Talbot, at least they love the Rovers”
Lancashire Evening Telegraph sports journalist Andy Cryer should really earn an award, not to mention a pay rise from his employers. Anyone who can stretch Steve Kean’s life story over three editions is a master of his craft.
I know the Rovers reporter has to write what he is told and tow the “party line”.
What tosh Kean has come out with, he even takes the credit for Rovers avoiding relegation, he just does not get it.
Wake up Mr Kean; we were only in a relegation struggle because of YOU.
Kean states he did not want the season to end because Rovers were in a rich vein of form over the last 10 games.
OK let’s have a look at this “Rich vein of Form”
Record reads: P10. W2. L3. D5. Points 11. Just slightly a fraction over a point a game, that’s relegation territory if repeated next season.
Regarding the latest debacle at Blackburn Rovers, the Phil Jones transfer and the demise of another good man from Ewood Park, Tom Finn a top administrator. Let me sum it up by quoting Michael Calvin of the Sunday Mirror from his column on Sunday 12th June. “Blackburn Rovers have no chairman, chief executive or managing director. Venky’s their indain owners have no credibility and no clue. In their infinitive wisdom they chose to dispense with John Williams and Tom Finn, not stellar names but superb administrators for over 15 years. They would have advised against the embarrassing squabble over Phil Jones”.
Martin Samuel of the Daily Mail wrote a similar article in his column on Monday 13th June calling the Rovers advisors “Dozy” i.e. Jerome Anderson.
The silence from our “own” newspaper the Lancashire Evening Telegraph has been deafening!
My objection to the inadequate Steve Kean being manager of Blackburn Rovers is well documented.
To compound matters he has this week added unbelievable pressure on himself by giving and un-creditable interview to Sky Sports.
According to Kean “Rovers will finish in the top half of the premiership and be challenging for a European championship league place, they will also win trophies 100% guaranteed”. His words not mine. As they say in Lancashire and “Pigs Might Fly”
P.S. Did no one at Blackburn Rovers realise the value of 19 year old Phil Jones, I could have told them he is worth 25 million of anyone’s money. I do not think many people realise just how good he is and how good he will become. Man Utd have a real bargain, Good luck to you lad.
All Rovers fans are expecting some quality signings this summer, forget it!!!!
No player of repute is going to play for Steve Kean.
Remember when Jack Walker took over the Rovers, his manager was Don McKay. Jack quickly realised that no matter how much money he had and how much he was willing to spend, Blackburn Rovers could not attract the quality of player that Jack wanted. So what did Jack do? He went for the best manager available and made Kenny Dalglish an offer he could not refuse.
Money talked, Dalglish’s appointment rocked the football world, mind you at the time Jack Walkers money was the biggest around. Today he would not be the “biggest fish in the pond”.
Even so, can you ever see Uncle Jack appointing a non-entity like Kean, no chance!
There are still some decent managers available, amongst them are Rafa Benitez, Carlo Ancelloti, Steve McClaren, David Jones, Martin O’Niel, Alan Curbishley or even have a punt on Lee Clark at Huddersfield.
