Agent Kean: Mission Accomplished!

Agent Kean: Mission Accomplished!

Blackburn Rovers are relegated and their 11 year tenure in the top flight is finally over after losing 1-0 at home to Wigan Athletic tonight. Antolin Alcaraz headed the Latics to victory from a corner in the 87th minute ensuring their survival in the Premier League for another season.

Blackburn manager Steve Kean came under significant pressure throughout the game with the home crowd on his back all night.'Kean Out' banners were splattered all round Ewood with similar chants echoing round the ground. At times it was pure farce especially when a chicken draped in a Blackburn flag appeared in the Wigan box five minutes into the game and had to be caught by Latics goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi

There was also the case of the confused and frustrated Rovers fans who charged onto the pitch at the start of the second half chucking his season ticket into the dugout in disgust! Trouble was it was the wrong dugout!

It was also absolute mayhem after the final whistle with objects being thrown and the crowd swarming onto the pitch to protest . 'We want Venkys out' was the chant!

Burnley though can now look forward to playing their deadly enemy in the Championship next season on a level playing field and all Clarets fans will be raising a glass to Agent Kean tonight for a job well done! Full marks too to the organisers of the plane that flew over Ewood before kick-off carrying a message reading "In Venky's We Trust - Burnley"

So then Owen Coyle and Bolton next?

Venkys are a truly awful family though! They were not even at Ewood tonight. By all accounts they were so thick too they thought clubs couldn't be relegated from the Prem when they bought into them! Gawd help us Cluck,cluck..are we all in Eggstacy?

Hope its Coyles turn next!!

On the subject of Noblot. I watched their destruction by Tottenham. The way the back line kept slipping out of sync against the Spurs quick attacks looked oddly familiar. Couldn't put a finger on it but could almost see Bikey, Mears, Carlisle and others making the same mistakes. Odd realy.

Truth is Coyle has no tactical nous at all. His Plan A was to be creative and gung-ho, scoring more goals than he conceded (he isn't capable of creating a solid back 4). His Plan B? He doesn't do a Plan B. That's why we started to struggle under him in the Premiership and with panache (and cowardice) he baled at the wrong time (for us - or in the bigger picture, was it?). His bluster and strong people skills bought him time last season and he has been thoroughly exposed this season. Just hope that Stoke do the business on him come Saturday. With luck he'll soon end up eking out a living in the lower divisions in Scotland, he'll have had his 15 minutes of fame and we'll see the end of his repetitive sound bites.
