Kean - not a chance I'll quit

Kean - not a chance I'll quit

Steve Kean has come out all guns balzing this morning and stays determined to do the job he believes he can do at Ewood Park amongst mass call for him to be sacked.

Kean has been under fire from seemingly all comers after a run of 10 games that means Rovers are on their worst win less run since Jesus was a man with hole free hands.

But the rookie Scot has confirmed he is going nowhere and far from letting it get him down he is using it as a motivator.

Kean spoke to Sky Sports and clarified - 'Do I think about quitting? Not for a day, not for a second. It just makes me more determined to go out and win'

'I think the criticism has been harsh. There was little written or said when we got a point at Arsenal.

'Then the whole world is going to end because we have drawn a game [at home to Birmingham].'

'It has been difficult to take. It's in your face all the time and even the local paper is negative'

'The lads don't like it. David Dunn and Phil Jones are from around here and they feel it is harsh.

'I can understand the frustration of the fans. We are sharing it too. But we are going to use it and harness it in our favour.'

"I do understand the concerns but we are talking about very fine margins," he said.

"I understand the frustrations of the fans, we are frustrated ourselves because we feel as though we have been good enough in a number of those games to just edge it.

"For whatever reason we have drawn or lost. What I would like to say is we are sharing the frustration.

"We are not going against the frustration, it is not the players and staff saying 'why are you frustrated`?

"We are frustrated as well because we would have liked to have beaten Blackpool and Birmingham. We are sharing that frustration it is equal.

"Hopefully they stick with us because we`d like to create an atmosphere in the next two games that`s a little bit like we had against Liverpool. The place was bouncing that night, magnificent.

"But it`s our job to make sure they see that from us as a team. We don`t sit back and dictate, we go and get after a team, show we mean business.Join The Vital Debate

I don't think it is harsh at all. Stats don't lie, we were in a healthy position and we've just been in total freefall waiting for a win and 10 games is a hell of a long time. Amongst those 10 teams we played against we should have had 2-3 wins at least to go with the draws we had just to survive in this league. A good manager would take the criticism on board and use it to turn things around but Kean has just kept on playing Roque and Roberts week after week with Niko rotting on the sidelines???

he uses the same old lines, I'm sick of hearing about the point at Arsenal, he then mentions players are not happy at the critism to deflect the pressure, complete and utter muppet

Nobody gives a **** about a point at Arsenal Kean, if we can't beat Blackpool and Birmingham at home! get that into your head! the criticism is not over the top! you think we played well against Everton where our first shot on target came in the 90th minute!! We are on our longest winnless run in 25 years thanks to you!

Ewood might have been bouncing when Liverpool were in town, but er...didn't we beat them? Wasn't there something to cheer about? Yes, the fans should back the team, but there is a duty for the team to give us something to shout about!

If they are not too happy with the criticism, they can take their overpaid, underachieving, lazy arses elsewhere. I am sick of hearing how they are unhappy, Kean is unhappy. They have been garbage week in week out for months, this isn't about tiny margins, this is about a lack of effort, a lack of talent and a lack of leadership
