This fat fecker makes some reasonable points until one recalls how he defended to the death WHU (his team oddly enough) for effectively relegating Sheff Utd as a result of their cheating over the Tevez / Mascherano affair.

Kean refers to feeling "knifed in the back". Why the sense of betrayal? What loyalty does Hunt owe Kean? Any loyalty should be reserved for the club, not Kean's financial packet.

Shearer still feels sympathy for Kean but slams Venkys and supports the Rovers fans.

At last, well done that young man. Hope he gets on in life but he'll probably not work for Sky but he probably doesnt want to.

Sorry, too stupid to do links, but this is from Jacob Steinberg in The Guardian in an article entitled 'Gripes of the Season 2011-2012'

The criticism of Blackburn fans

Blackburn Rovers finished 10th under Sam Allardyce in the 2009-10 season. When the club's new Indian owners Venky's sacked Sam Allardyce and replaced him with Steve Kean in December 2011, they were 13th. With the owners prattling on about signing Ronaldinho, supporters were dubious, especially as Kean's agent, Jerome Anderson, had advised Venky's to buy the club. Blackburn stayed up, but results this season continued to suffer and games at Ewood Park have been played to a soundtrack of prolonged booing and chants of "Kean Out!". However, instead of noticing the supporters' anger at the way their club has been run by Venky's and the team has been managed by Kean, too many pundits and journalists have focused on the behaviour of the fans. While some behaviour towards Kean has crossed the line, Blackburn Rovers means more to those supporters than it ever will to owners, managers, players or neutrals, some of whom have come across as desperately out of touch. A significant part of the criticism has been a disgrace and just yet another example of the way football fans are dumped on from a very great height by those with the power and influence to make a difference.

Well, it's spot on but still has the customary 'Fans went too far' comment which never has anything to support it.

Interview with one of the Rao brothers earlier on in the year. Clueless sprang to mind. The best quote was:

"Im not worried by fans protests. They have a right to be unhappy and if there unhappy there isnt anything we can do about it".

No passion, no interest, no idea.

Well done to Julie, from the Fans Forum and Michael. SKY SH.IT THEMSELVES WHEN MICHAEL SAID "Kean is a compulsive liar!"
Bunch of ****!


Oooh, what did Julie say? I'm amazed she had the guts to go back on TV again after the amazing Granada TV hatchet job on her interview in Pune.
