How do Kean & Venkys get this sort of thing circulated? Do they pay for it?

Now Kean is likened to Churchill FFS.

Maybe the reality is that the UK Press is cow dung chicken crap. (Edited for the sake of accuracy)

Those were the days my friends....I was there that day!!

The first Rovers game I saw was at Ewood on Saturday 7th September 1963 - Rovers 7 v Spurs 2, attendance: 20,949

(Rovers scorers - McEvoy 4, Douglas 1, England 1, Pickering 1)

Rovers team: Else,Bray,Newton,Clayton,England,McGrath,Ferguson,McEvoy,Pickering,Douglas,Harrison

(Only 3 in that team cost a transfer fee: Else £20k, Harrison £20k and Ferguson £2k)

What an awful article.
It is amazing what can be achieved when no one cares who gets the credit.

"As a first-time manager he has come up short, which is no excuse for the level of abuse directed at him by fans. What some have condemned as arrogance others would commend as brave dignity in the face of deplorable behaviour."

"Venky's have come under similar fire, a secondary target to Kean, being more remote. Without them Rovers' fans might have been looking at another Portsmouth or Rangers. Such is gratitude."

"Contrary to terrace chants, Venky's do know what they are doing and will go on doing it."

"Those fans should be flattered that Venky's embrace Blackburn in a portfolio that includes the famous old Bombay Cricket Club and Sachin Tendulkar. Verbal terrorism will get them nowhere."

"Though Venky's put Rovers on a stable financial footing and set up their challenge for a return to the Premier League, they have made a rod for their own back by poor communications."

Speechless at this garbage.
Thanks to Tyrone Shoelaces, this was the first team I ever saw:
Rovers v Middesborough F. A. Cup 5th round. Sat 5th of Feb, 1962. Att, 33,714.

Else! Taylor Newton, Clayton Woods McGrath, Douglas Lawther Pickering Byrom Ratcliffe.

We won 2-1 ( Pickering, Lawther ) setting up an away tie at Fulham in the next round. We drew that 2-2. Before the replay the draw had paired us with our old friends Burnley in the semi finals.
Typically Rovers, we played kean in the replay and lost 1-0 in front of another 33,000 crowd ! of our five forwards four were actually born in the town of Blackburn ! Now that will never happen again.

My goodness Jeremy Alexander is a name to remember as a sub-second rater.

Now we are outside the Prem, we really will get the dregs writing reports on us.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, or so the saying goes.

An astonishing article written almost as a wind-up to antagonise Rovers fans.

What's the difference between yoghurt and Australians ? At least yoghurt starts with a little culture.

I'm a Guardian reader, but this is the worst article on the Rovers for a long time.

For some reason I can't post on the site, but would encourage others to do so. I would also that BRAG contact him to put the fans' side of things.

Looked for Alexander on Twitter but could not find him - surely you can't get away with writing this trash.

One of the worst things I've ever read. Thankfully those commenting are more clued up than the 'journalist'.
"Blackburn Rovers Football Club can confirm that Steve Kean tonight resigned from his position as manager."

What a load of utter bol***ks! If we don't get promoted we have more chance of going that way than when we had the walker trust. Don't see them writing that s*** about everton who are in massive debt!

It has to be a deliberate go at Rovers fans. Just wish there was a way to find out where it starts from.

We should be flattered they own the club and are guilty of verbal terrorism! Strong words.

I only got to the end of the second paragraph. Didn't deserve any further reading.

Who exactly do they think is reading column inches about Rovers? Er... Rovers fans?

This idiot makes it up as he goes along. See his article praising Martin Allen for "saving" Barnet from relegation, then read how he's lambasted by fans for nearly crippling Cheltenham Town. Lazy journalism of the worst kind. But what do you expect from the Grauniad Bogsheet?

Ah sweet, they printed my article.

Sheffield Wednesday will go all the way this season just as Southampton did.

They have real momentum and a half decent manager.
