Kean asks for small protest

Kean asks for small protest

Rovers manager Steve Kean has expressed his desire for a small protest on Saturday, despite the growing revolt amongst fans about the Venky's and Kean regime.

A community march is planned prior to Rovers home game with Norwich this Saturday aimed at displaying displeasure with the owners, manager and board of directors.

Kean however has decided to focus on the task in hand and has appealed to the Rovers fans to do the same.

Steve Kean told Sky Sports - 'I hope that the protest is small. The fans inside the ground of late have been excellent and the travelling fans have been very good.

'We have a young team that has certainly performed better when the atmosphere has been hostile towards the opposition and I am hopeful that they will continue to support us.

'We have a focus and that is on breaking the sequence that we are in, making sure we can get a good start in the game and I am very confident that we can get a result this week.

'If you can go to Anfield and draw, and go to Old Trafford and win, there is no reason why we can't beat Norwich and Wigan at home and take something from the games away at Spurs and away at Chelsea.

'If you can go to tough away grounds and dig something out, and win our home games I think that will be enough to keep us in the division.'

'At times it has been tough but I have the beauty of being able to go back on the training ground, like I did first thing this morning.

'If we don't get a result at the weekend, we go back and work with the players again and get prepared for another massive game.

'The players have been fantastic and there have been lots of games where we should have got a bit more from those games.

'But it has been a massive transition period for the club. There are new owners, I am a new manager at the club, we have a lot of new young players in the team, so there have been big changes at the club.

'We feel that when we come through it, like we did last season, we will be better for it.'

Kean was then asked about his future beyond the end of this season to which his unlikely to be well received answer was - 'I have a contract that runs beyond this season. 'Let's get this season taken care of, make sure that we are in the division and I'm hopeful we can move things on.'

Oh the joys.

I'm gonna be even more pedantic in saying...Kaiser Chiefs Back to the post though, i've lost interest in anything Steve Kean says or does. The man has had more than enough chances as manager, when he had absolutely no right to. He's blown it beyond all expectations and needs to go, along with the amateur owners that unfortunately run our club.

As i just said on Facebook. If you protest during the game you are just presenting Kean, Venkys and the media with the perfect excuse for relegation. Give it a few years and history will have been rewritten, and we will be recorded as protesting at every single game for the full 90 minutes distracting the team and causing relegation. Best thing to do would be to protest march before match, give the team your full support during the match and then protest inside the stadium at the end. Don't give Kean the opportunity to take the media spotlight off of him for goodness sakes.

We need to protest inside though, so Kean and the owners know exactly what we think of them, otherwise Kean will think he is the god of Blackburn. Protesting outside the ground only is no good in my eyes.

I'm going to b controversial and say it's pointless protesting at all now. Adding to what Tombo mentioned, the media will put their own spin on this and Steve Kean will just look like a saint who tried his best to bring order through chaos.

I know the protest will go ahead now in any case, but in my opinion the best thing we can do is support the team before during and after. We don't need to give the media an excuse to blame us for our impending relegation.
