The hatred towards Kean during matches was embarrasing in all honesty. Why create a long term negative vibe during
matches when the team, including the manager, needed support? Instead Venkys should have copped all of the abuse before and after
games. By creating that hostile atmosphere Blackburn fans hardly helped the situation at the club. I mean, you're finally rid of the guy but it has made absolutely no positive difference to Rovers.
This opinion is not coming from an inexperienced viewpoint either. I remember when we had the 'Worthy out' campaign. There's no doubt that he was getting stale at that point but the real issue was our then chief executive Neil Doncaster, the guy responsible for the loss of our best players due to piss poor financial management of the club, not to mention a baffling tendency to add in a release clause in every new player's contract that was usually of the same value that we signed them for in the first place
. That 'structure' lead to the situation where Roeder and then Gunn had to manage a team of loanees in 08/09 because our squad was diminished due to a lack of permanent signings. It was definitely Nigel Worthington's time to go back in 06, but poisoning the atmosphere at the club in order to get rid of him made absolutely no positive long term effect, something that is evident due to the downward spiral that continued long after Worthy's dismissal. The situation at NCFC only improved when David McNally replaced the inept Doncaster who is now making Scottish football even worse. A difficult task, but if anybody was going to do it...
As for Blackburn having a squad that is barely of championship quality, I'm not really sure that's the case. If a decent man manager with good organisational skills comes in you will start seeing results. Kean lead your lot to wins at that level, so it's definitely possible.
