Kean appointed!

Kean appointed!

After saying yesterday that Steve Kean would be in charge until March, Rovers have now decided that he is in charge for the rest of the season!

Kean has been appointed successor to Big Sam and has been given the task to improve on last seasons 10th place finish.

With no managerial experience Kean has been given a chance to prove that he can have the job beyond the summer!

Totally the wrong decision in my eyes, however maybe this is the only man we could get! After the way Sam got treated who would actually want the job? We need someone experienced not the next Paul Ince!

Personally I am getting sick of all these mixed messages from Venkys..

First they want top 10, now its top 5! First Kean was until January, then March then May!

Originally 5 million to spent in January, now 'a lot more'

I find it incredibly hard to trust these people.

Maybe this is what they wanted, a yes man, a manager who would take whatever players he is given in a hope of proving himself as a manager.

Well he must has really have impressed the Raos with the West Ham perfornance...since he has been given the title of manager until june (and probably beyond). Maybe he learned to say "yes mam" in hindi on his recent visit to India... It is obvious he does not have the respect of the players....it is obvius he played a role in the sacking of Sam along with his agents at SEM/Kentaro. Guess his backstapping of Sam worked out...disgusted!!!!

Unbeleivable decision, why Sack Sam and pay him off just to give a nugget the job who has no experience and im pretty sure aint got all his licences to manage at the top level, We as fans have been sold out again, Looks like this is the way things are going to be from now on at rovers

An absolute joke in my opinion. I'm really starting to fear the worst for our club now. Why didn't they just let Big Sam see out the season?? I hope Kean does well obviously but with the League as tight as it is when it all goes pear shaped we'll be desperately crying out for another Big Sam to come in to try and keep us up.

I am so scared, in fact terrified, it's an absolute circus at the moment!! I'm just left thinking what the hell is going to happen next? The team is surely now just going to fall apart with members already speaking out about the goings on, i know how i would feel if it had happened to my boss. I really feel for JW it's clear his hands are tied in all of this!!

Never been a fan of big Sam, he's at best arrogant. But sacking him was plain lunacy
