Petition For The Removal Of Steve Kean (Continued)

BRFCS understand that owners Venky’s are currently considering the future of manager Steve Kean, who is due to fly out to Pune for a Tuesday meeting with the Rao family after the final match of the season at Chelsea. It is understood that Kean has been putting forward a number of proposals to ensure that he remains in a position of power and influence at the club, including the installation of club’s PR agent Paul Agnew as CEO while Kean takes over as director of football.

It is understood that some members of the Rao family are still labouring under the misapprehension that it is currently only a small number of fans who believe that Steve Kean is detrimental to the club’s long-term future and a massive negative influence on fans’ support for the club and on season-ticket sales.

Aside from the abysmal record of Steve Kean as manager of Blackburn Rovers and the woeful playing performances by the team over the course of the last season and a half, BRFCS believe that the continued presence of Steve Kean at our football club is a major factor in the breakdown in trust between club and fans. We are therefore petitioning Blackburn Rovers chairwoman Mrs Desai, in the letter below, to take action with her fellow owners to remove Steve Kean from our club as a first step in helping to stabilise the club.

We are therefore asking all Rovers fans to show their support for this action by joining with us in this petition. Please add your REAL NAMES to the petition by adding a comment below. Note that this is an open petition and that the posts below are not associated in any way with the BRFCS forums. Anybody may join the petition without registering as a member.

Note that if you wish to add more than one name from your household, you should place these on a separate line and only with the express consent of the person(s) concerned. BRFCS will make a list of all those who join the petition and will send this to Mrs Desai directly.


Dear Mrs Desai,

We, the undersigned, would like to request that Venky’s, as owners and custodians of our historic football club, terminate the employment of Mr Steve Kean at Blackburn Rovers Football Club with immediate effect.

We, the supporters of Blackburn Rovers, have no faith whatsoever in the ability of Steve Kean to manage a football team nor be involved in the running of a professional football club. His record as a manager during his 18-month spell in charge of the club is among the worst in the twenty-year history of the Premier League and he is undoubtedly the worst and arguably the most unpopular manager in the entire 137-year history of our football club.

Notwithstanding relegation from the Premier League, the continued presence of Steve Kean is having a major impact on loyal supporters’ desire and commitment to follow the team that they care passionately for. The utter contempt with which he treats the fans of this once proud family club is an affront to our dignity and an embarrassment to the club and he has succeeded in driving a wedge between the football club and the wider community that the fans of that football club represent.

As a first step in the process of re-establishing stability at Ewood Park, both in terms of the day-to-day management of the club and in terms of the performance on the playing side, and rebuilding the relationship between fans and the club, we ask that you and your fellow owners take immediate and decisive action to relieve Mr Steve Kean of any involvement, in any capacity, at Blackburn Rovers Football Club by terminating his employment.

We look forward to your response and remain, respectfully, the loyal supporters of your football club.

  1. eileen Webster says:

    I want it to be known that Steve Keane should be removed from Blackburn rovers as manager, for the safety of the fans, also due to his incompetence as manager, and the harm he has done since his appointment. The safety of the fans is an issue due to his open contempt of them, and the response from fans during the game.

  2. alan howard says:

  3. peter gilmartin says:

    How Mr Kean can continue to believe that he has the support of any ROVERS fans is mind blowing. However it is in character as he persuades himself and some people in the media that he is a football manager.

    please sell blackburn rovers NOW before it is too late for us to sort out this mess!
    Steve Kean and you Venky’s are both responsible for the demise of our club.
    You say nothing and do nothing positive!
    We love our club and have never seen such bad management or ownership you just do not have the knowledge needed to run this football team.
    Please seriously consider selling ASAP….

  7. Peter Kay says:

    Will not return to Ewood whilst Steve Kean is employed in any capacity by Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

  8. Yunus Akram says:

    Yunus Akram – Remove Steve Kean (and yourselves) from BRFC.

  9. Mustafa Abid Russell says:

    Yes, as a Rovers fan of 34 years, I can safely say that these last 18months under the misguided ‘leadership’ of Mr Steve Kean have been the most confusing and unpromising that I can remember. Please let’s not consider keeping him on.
