David Dunn has called for Rovers fans to gain a little perspective and has criticised the booing, jeering and protests that are designed to heap pressure on Steve Kean.
Dunny has been out of action for a few games as he sits out with his now mandatory injury but has observed enough from the Premier League as a whole to see that it is not just Rovers that are struggling to bridge the massive financial gap that exists.
David even criticises the recent protests in part organised by certain sections of the Rovers support (including this website).
Dunny spoke to the LT and said - "It was disappointing. If you had asked the fans before the season would they have taken four points from Fulham and Newcastle away and Arsenal and Manchester City at home, many would say yes.
"Going further back if we had converted our two penalties against Everton, we would be sat 11th or 12th with probably not much being said.
"The booing and the jeering doesn`t help anyone. From a players` point of view, we see the hard work the manager and the staff do so it is disappointing to see the reaction.
"I am hoping it is just a minority. I heard the guys that are leading the protest on the radio and it is poor. To be leading protests is poor.
"Even Arsenal go to Old Trafford and get beat 8-2. That is not Blackburn Rovers, that is Arsenal.
'So the gulf between those two is getting greater, forget the likes of Blackburn Rovers.
"I had a reality check on Saturday when I looked at City and one of the players on their bench cost more than our owners paid for our club.
'Put it like that and maybe we need to get real."
