'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A nail in the coffin?

Rovers manager Steve Kean could be in more hot water this morning after reports surfaced that he had an altercation with Sky reporter James Cooper whilst in Germany last week.

Kean was on a scouting mission in Munich last Tuesday to get on top of weekend opponents Man City (#start sarcasm# which was a tremendous success #end sarcasm) and after the match was allegedly spotted having a 'bit of a go' at a member of the the media giants corporation.

Pressure has been building on Kean from all angles in recent weeks and this particular incident, if proven to be accurate, could prove to be the nudge that Venky's need to see the light and relieve Kean of his duties.

The Sun is reporting - 'Kean clashed with respected correspondent James Cooper last Tuesday in the bar of the Marriott Hotel in Munich, following Manchester City's 2-0 defeat by Bayern in the Allianz Arena.

Kean had been at the game on a scouting mission ahead of Rovers' clash with City at Ewood Park.

He returned to the hotel after the game and was talking to Sky pundit Alan McInally and pitchside interviewer Geoff Shreeves at the bar (ed - presumably as he wasn't driving).

Cooper came in later and simply introduced himself before joining colleagues away from that group for a drink.

Around half an hour later, Kean, totally unprovoked, approached Cooper and was seen remonstrating with him.

He stood inches from Cooper's face, pointing at him and speaking heatedly.

Cooper was visibly shaken by the incident, which was calmed down by the intervention of his cameraman.

The event is sure to raise concerns in the Blackburn boardroom and among the club's Indian owners, who are already under pressure to sack Kean with the club in the drop zone.'

A shocking win/draw/loss record, a drink driving conviction, poor rapport fans and now this - it doesn't look good does it Steve?

It's getting pretty embarrassing now...

He doesn't do himself any favours does he?

Another example of his inexperience, crikey after a game you may see a story like this, but after a scouting trip??????

As Fran says...he just doesn't help himself. If he had Rovers best interests at heart it would be best all round if he did the decent thing and stepped down like McClaren has at Forest. He's fighting a losing battle now anyway.

although he tries to hide it, he must be under tremendous pressure that needs to be released somewhere. or may be this is the way he gets himself fired. either way, i just want him to go...

Yet another incident. How many more will it take?

Embarrassment to the club! Cmon Venkys you need to listen to the 1%ers. It doesn't look good for the club and especially your business! Embarrassing !

3 more games to 10. 4 points out of a possible 21, if our points tally still stands below 10 points after 10 games, it will be impossible for him to turn it around. The severe pressure then will be mounting on him. It's better for him to go now.
