Happy Kean Out Day

Recommended Posts

Happy Kean out day indeed. That was the absolute worst period certainly in my 3 decades of watching rovers. Up with titles and promotion the day he left was a truly happy day.

I wish I could forget him.

We celebrated his departure a lot lot more than the league one promotion that’s for sure. Think it was a Friday had no plans to go out but we decided it was a significant event to celebrate. After a few we were buying in bottles of champagne (none of us like it), came across a few random rovers fans never seen before or since who also went out to mark the occasion.

Sure we played in London the following day or the day after so went down on the crest of a wave. Can’t remember the oppo or score but didn’t win if memory serves.

Before Kean when I said I hated people in hindsight I didn’t actually know what hate was. Since Kean he’s raised the bar for the title of “hated”.

Another reason I find it difficult to forgive and impossible to forget is there’s a weekly reminder. A club the size of ours could easily be relegated but the reason we’ve been playing the likes of Luton over the past 7 years is down to Steve Kean and the Venkys.

What an absolutely vile, cretinous dickhead this man was.

Thank goodness he’s out of our club.

Prick.

As I said the other week, look how quickly Garry Monk has ended up back in the game, yet that disgrace of a man hasn’t even had a sniff of a coaching job in the UK in 7 years, says it all.

Plenty of people in the English football fraternity coming out to defend him and his "dignity" whilst he was here - nobody offering him any hint of a job once he was unemployed.

A happy day indeed.

Genuinely didn't think it was possible to get so angry over football until this weasel proceeded his reign of terror.

Is it really only 7 years?

 

I occasionally come across a photo I hid on my computer of him out socialising and I feel physically sick at the sight

Hopefully in the future we could celebrate a  Venky's Out day too.

I dream of Venky's out day.

It will be return to Ewood day too. I'll finally be able to reclaim my seat on the Riverside.

As long as it's still open / standing.

 

8000 of us will be able to go back and reclaim our club.

A complete shithouse.

Funny how Charlie Nicholas is pretty much calling for Marco Silva's head yet he defended Kean to the bitter end.

Not been a lot to write about since that momentous day. Very disappointing anticlimax. Thanks Venkys 

We did have that three or four hours when we were sixth. Heady days.

Well, at least Venky's finally had the sense to sack him...oh wait....

What transpired was clearly wrong on all levels but most of the Media chose to back him instead of the fans who were openly ridiculed and made to look the Villains.We were humiliated.

Never experienced anything like it before or since and it still bothers me to this day what went on under his awful tenure.
