Had big Sam still been manager in January Jason Roberts would have been shown the door and Nico Kalinic would have been in the match day squad, every week, instead it is now the other way round.
Kalinic or Roberts, opinions are divided, but seeing Roberts cannot “trap a bag of Cement”, continuously gives away free kicks in the box, thwarting attacking moves, cannot hold the ball up, cannot turn a defender, do I need to go on. Guess who I prefer??
Funny how Sam Allardyce’s “stock” has risen since he was unjustly sacked by Jerome Anderson, sorry, Blackburn Rovers in December. Although football was quite aware of his management ability’s, his reputation has increased following the dramatic demise of the Rovers since his departure.
Sam has been connected with several premiership jobs.
Everton, Fulham and Aston Villa all have their sights on him should they have to make any management changes, whether enforced in the case of Everton and Fulham or by choice in the case of Aston Villa.
"December 13th 2010"
A date that will be etched on the minds of Blackburn Rovers supporters infinitely. For that is the day that Blackburn's proud record of eleven consecutive seasons in the premier league effectively come to an end. For that is the day that Blackburn's new Indian owners sacked Sam Allardyce for no good reason.
From That moment Rovers future was sealed. It is just a matter of time possibly by mid April that Blackburn will be firmly entranced in the premiership bottom three with no hope of escape. Sam's replacement Steve Kean is way out of his depth, a football coach he may be a manager he is not.
How is it possible the Kean turned down by Kilmarnock in July for the managers job at the Scottish club, ends up one of only 20 premiership managers in the world. How is it possible that the premierships third most experienced manager Allardyce, is sacked before the ink is dry on the take over by the Venky Group!
Facing relegation and Rovers can not beat Blackpool or Birmingham at home, Two of Kean's "will win" games. Two exceptional poor results, won those and we would be almost safe, I can not see where a win is coming from.
We have gone nine Premiership games without a win and still Kean is in a job. Steve Kean and agent advisor Jerome Anderson have turned a good Premiership team into the worst in the division, that's not an opinion, that's fact. We are definitely going down and its time the majority of Rovers supporters faced up to the fact. I cannot see another win this season making fifteen without a victory on the trot. How much longer can Kean survive?
The silence for the Rao brothers and sister Mrs Desai is deafening especially after Mrs Desai venomous verbal attack on Sam Allardyce back in December. No wonder they have gone quiet, they have been a disaster and shouldn't have been let near a football club, let alone a Premiership one. They could at least make a gesture to the supporters by apologising for the sackings of Sam Allerdyce and chairman John Williams, both good men, doing a good job.
For those who are not aware, Sunday supplement on sky sports 1 takes place at 9.30 am on Sundays and consist of four well known sports journalist from our national newspapers discussing the weeks football topics.
Now I have been accused of being self-opinionated when it comes to the current going on’s at Blackburn rovers with manager steve kean and agent / advisor Jerome Anderson, maybe so, but on Sunday 20th March my thoughts and opinions were echoed by fleet streets finest. None other than Brian Woulnough daily star, Steve Bates Sunday people, Matt Lawson daily mail, and Neil Custis of the sun thought steve kean nothing than a puppet manager, the new owners badly advised and rovers heading for relegation.
