A peaceful protest, hoping to show Venkys, Blackburn Rovers owners that Steve Kean needs to go, has been arranged for Saturday, before the Arsenal match.
Fan frustration over the continued support and tenancy of Steve Kean as Rovers manager has prompted individuals to take action to highlight the feeling of the majority (not minority, sorry Steve!) of the fan base and to hope to force the issue and have Kean removed from his position.
Fellow VBers Tombo got the ball rolling on the pressure on Kean with his organising of the open letter to Rovers and Venkys and whilst there was media interest, the stonewall silence from Venkys suggested that they had no interest.
As was revealed exculsively on Vital Blackburn a short while ago, there are people behind the scenes at Rovers compiling a shortlist of potential replacements for Kean. Whilst this may just be the club doing their own due dilligence on that eventuality, it shows that they are aware that he is not cutting the mustard.
For the thread regarding this shortlist, please go here:
Glen Mullan and Joe Ainscough, regular contributors and important cogs in the VBer machine have taken on the majority of the brunt of the organising of this march, along with various TV and radio interviews advertising it.
Props also to our 'currently banned' VBer, OZTHEMAN, who has stumped up his own money to get materials and printing done.
I have seen many people give their opinion on both Kean and this march.
Whilst some will say that he deserves more time, especially given that he has bought his own players, I, personally, along with a lot of others feel that his time has come and even passed.
His statistics in charge are a damning perspective on his tenure.
Statistically, he is the worst manager Blackburn has EVER had.
Some have also said that they feel the timing of the march is ill advised and wrong, etc.
Whatever your feelings for Kean, the love of Rovers should shine through and hopefully you will all be in support of this protest, be it in person or in spirit.
The details for the march are as follows.
The Havelock Inn Pub
11.15am start. The march will be monitored and accompanied by members of Police and in full support of Blackburn Rovers Football Club.
The march will leave the Havelock Inn and move down towards Ewood Park. Once there, it will make 2 laps of the ground before finishing.
There is MASSIVE press and media interest and coverage for this both locally in Blackburn, nationally via the BBC and Sky and even internationally, with Norweigan and Danish TV having an interest as undoubtedly will Indian news.
Therefore it is IMPERATIVE that we represent Rovers and Rovers fans in the best possible way and are impeccably behaved during this march. Police will be on hand to remove and arrest anyone causing a public nuisanse.
