Kean's start to the season - The comparison

At the start of the season I personally said I'd give Steve Kean seven games.

I feel it's a fair length of tenure to be judged on and after seven games I must say like a lot of Rovers fans that I feel totally let down.

I've seen an ineffective Rovers get steamrollered one too many times for my liking.

To spell it out for you here's last season's results against the sides we've played so far this campaign as a direct comparison...

- Wolves home: 3-0 win becomes a 1-2 loss.

- Aston Villa away: 1-4 defeat becomes a 1-3 loss.

- Everton home: 1-0 win becomes a 0-1 loss.

- Fulham away: 2-3 loss becomes a 1-1 draw.

- Arsenal home: 1-2 loss becomes a 4-3 win.

- Newcastle away: 2-1 win becomes a 3-1 loss.

- City home: 0-1 loss becomes a 0-4 loss.

So to summarise - that's last season: played 6, won 3, drawn 0, lost 3, for 10, against 11, points 9.

This season: Played 6, won 1, drawn 1, lost 4, for 10, against 15, points 4.

We stayed up on the last day last season. We're already 5 points worse off this season. Are there really any Rovers fans left who think Kean should be given more time?

Like the comparison, especially since this is a results business, though can't help but feel this is simplified a little!

If I was a Rover's fan I'd want him sacked and marched out of town

Amazingly non of us need stats to show how clueless Steve Kean is. These stats only further the desperate need to axe the clown right now and get a decent manager in charge as we already playing catch up.
