One win in thirteen premier league games is just not acceptable, no wonder Rovers can be relegated on the seasons last day. Rovers should not be in this mess and would not for the ridiculous sacking of Sam Allardyce.
Any other manager bar Kean, would have been sacked, what other premiership club would tolerate Kean’s dismal record. By their continued support of Kean, the new owners are losing all credibility.
QUESTION. If Kean was out of work tomorrow what top form flight club, premiership or championship would employ him?
Not even Kilmarnock wanted him. The only reason Kean is not on the dole que, is because Allardyce rescued him from it and look at the the thanks Sam got.
Word on the football grapevine is that Kean is an unpopular outcast in football circles.
Once the final whistle blows against Wolves on Sunday, relegated or not, there will be a que of players wanting to exit Blackburn Rovers, Jason Roberts apart who must be amazed he is in the starting line-up of a premiership team, but not as amazed as me!
Why Rovers employ Kean is beyond mine and others comprehension.
The answer probably lye’s with Jerome Anderson and his Kentaro agency, who sacked Allardyce and put into place there puppet manager who in turn hands out a lucrative contract to Anderson’s son, who’s senior football experience is a three minute substitution appearance with Aberdeen.
Nieve owners, who followed Anderson’s advice, have contributed to Rovers demise.
The strong structure put into place by Allardyce and John Williams is all but gone.

Just when you thought things could not get any worse, they just did.
If the worry of relegation was not enough and a crucial game against an on form Wolves on the horizon, Rovers were dealt a double whammy this week.
The price of relegation from the Barclays premier league is an estimated £40 million pounds and goes downhill from there.
The departure of top players, staff redundancies, a fall in local trade and no guarantee in being back any time soon.
The lower divisions are littered with the carcasses of once great premier league clubs.Pity Mrs Desai, Ventkatesh Rao and Bahji Rao did not think of this before that fateful day 13th December when they sacked Sam Allardyce and handed the keys to Ewood Jerome Anderson.
To compound matters, relegation rivals Wolves and Wigan have "found form", Blackpool will face a weakened Man Utd and vibes coming out of Spurs are that! They are not all that keen on qualifying for the Europa Cup prior to the clash with Birmingham.
News has just emerged from West Ham that they have been using football agent Barry Silkman to “advise” and to recruit players. Silkman was also instrumental in employing manager Avram Grant.
Given the poor quality of players brought into the club by Silkman and the fact West Ham had a nightmare season resulting in relegation, “does it remind you of anyone”?
For West Ham read Blackburn Rovers, for Barry Silkman read Jerome Anderson.
