FULL TIME: Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

THE post Steve Kean Ewood Park era started in disappointment this afternoon as Blackburn Rovers crashed 1-0 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, writes Laura Jayne Gorse.

Returning Blackburn Rovers fans were left disappointed today as a second half screamer from Wolves’ Bakary Sako left Rovers with their second successive home defeat of the season.

 Wolves started well and Sako had an early shot in the 4th minute that forced Robinson into a save to his left hand corner.

 Blackburn looked poor and gave the away side too much space in the middle of the park.  Two minutes later Ebanks Blake had a shot that flew over the cross bar.

 The home side had a glimmer of a chance on nine minutes when Kazim-Richards played in Rhodes, but the striker’s effort was saved easily by Carl Ikeme.

 Rovers had a scare in the 14th minute as Kazim Richards went down seemingly in some considerable pain, only to jog it off minutes later.

 Wolves continued to have the majority of the possession and against run of play; Rovers had a penalty shout turned down in the 16th minute.  Jordan Rhodes looked to be pushed as he climbed to meet a Kazim-Richards cross, only for the ref to wave play on.

 Minutes later Ebanks-Blake should have scored as he saw his header hit Paul Robinson's left post.

 Rovers were in Wolves’s six yard box in the 22nd minute as Martin Olsson charged down the left side and delivered a low cross into the box.  Kazim Richards left it for Rhodes, but the young striker was unable to reach it.

 Rhodes had another chance before half time but his shot was blocked by two defenders.  He managed to collect the rebound but his second shot was weak and Ikeme saved easily.

 Fabio Nunes replaced Mauro Formica at the start of the second half, and the young Portuguese player made an immediate impact with a cross come shot in the 50th minute that had Wolves’ keeper back peddling backwards towards his goal.

 Rovers never looked threatening after the break and Wolves had the better chances in the second half.  Rovers needed three defenders to block Sako’s shot on 71 minutes.  Moments later substitute Anthony Forde saw his shot fly wide of Rovers post.

 Wolves’ persistence paid off though and when Danny Murphy lost the ball in the 76th minute, Sako let off a left-foot rocket that flew past Paul Robinson leaving the Rovers keeper no chance.

 Rovers tried to push for an equaliser but their efforts came to nothing and they never looked like threatening the away sides lead.

Club chairmen everywhere need to look at Venky's as a 'case in point' on how not to run a football club. To relieve a perfectly good manager of his duties and replace him with training ground coaches for 2 years is absolutely diabolical. People get linked but all say they haven't been contacted....so what the hell has Shebby Singh been doing since Kean fell on his sword??? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that's what!! They just hoped for the easy and cheap solution again...Black and Hendry. WELL....YET AGAIN THEIR PATHETIC TACTICS HAVE FAILED. Get BLACK AND HENDRY OUT!! SHEARER IN and leave football management to the professionals.

Three centre backs, (of which 2 think think a pass is a punt up the pitch to nobody), a wing-back system with Orr (who is a complete cr&p, lightweight) and Olsson - a player nobody seems to want to pass to even when he is in space. Formica and Lowe were anonymous and there was no room for Gomes or Rochina. Ker-lue-less.

Pack your bags, Mssrs Black & Hendry . You had your chance and you blew it. We need somebody in charge who wants to - and knows how to get players to - play good football as a team. Blindingly bleeding obvious, or what.

Black dsy all round but doubt there will be many more for our Caretaker - what is needed is a clear out - too many living on past reputations

No pressure on the ball in midfield who see their job as passing back for the long punt. Entertainment value today was 0 -and Rovers got what they deserve not helped by really poor officials but the players looked like they had no idea what to do on or off the ball.

Stop messing about Shebby Venkys need told and an experienced Manager with a game plan is requires as soon as possible and before the next game

One thing for certain if Black regards that as entertainment - tere will be one less season ticket holder next year at Ewood I have seen more effort a=more commitment and more quality in non league football than I saw in 90 minutes ar Ewood today

Congratulations to the KEAN OUT contingent. ( and in that I obviously include traitor -in - chief Shebby, the Snake, Singh. ) Your successful campaign has clearly turned the club around with 2 points from a possible nine and and three performances that make a mockery of our mid table mediocrity. It was also fantastic see see you all flock back in your tens. Your magnificent presence and vocal support clearly made all the difference.
From the attititude and application of the players in the last three games it appears that they were not quite so eager as you were to see the back of Kean but what the hell do they know? They only took us to the top of the table just before you had him sacked.
I am not sure why Pedersen bothered turning up today as it is perfectly obvious that he is never going to get a game as long as Shebby the Snake is picking the team. How can Mort get a match when we have such midfield maestros as Murphy and Lowe bosssing the game?
So, give yourselves a great big slap on the back tonight, and perhaps lick your elbows and envelopes as you send your letters to Santa to deliver Shearer as the Saviour by Christmas.

Are you for real? Have you read the quotes from Kean over the last two years? You happy with that as the face and leader of the club? Have you watched the team this year-we've been poor and scraping results.

Now, three games have slipped by and those that made the effort to turn up saw just how awful this team really is. It could have be oh so different with a new manager being introduced to the crowd, creating a buzz of atmosphere that may have lifted that sorry rabble of second rate players. Instead, we have a further delay and a total loss of direction, with those like myself wondering whether or not to bother ever again after today's abysmal showing.

Those at the game today ( supporters as opposed to casual observers) may have heard TWO announcements advising us that Ewood Park is a Non Smoking stadium and is not allowed anywhere in the ground. I suggested to their Chief Steward, a rather dull and simple individual, that they should perhaps remind the attendees that Ewood Park is also an All Seater Stadium and rather that persecute the two or three individuals that contravene a local club rule they should concentrate on the couple of thousand that flagrantly defy a LAW, to remain seated at football matches.
I was advised that too many people defy the LAW for it to be enforced so there's the answer. If enough of us go out robbing, thieving and looting we will get away with it because the law is unenforcable if too many people break it. Well done the the Stewards and Police for keeping us safe, sound and smoke free.

Anyone who was at the game today could see 1 clear thing (just like those who went to Forest on Wed) Eric Black is simply NOT up to the job.

Home game, 5 at the back and 2 holding midfielders ?? - the guy is beyond negative and according to Radio Rovers, after the game he blamed the strikers saying we didnt have the "right typer of strikers" to score goals in the championship - is that a Steve Keanesque type quote or what.

SS needs to act quickly, get in a young, prograssive manager (OGS or Karl Robinson for me) to whip these individuals (they don't play like a team) into shape or this seasons automatic promotion slots will have got away from us before the end of October.

Venkys, act quickly and (for once!!) correctly and appoint the right man to take us forward without further dithering.

Well I suppose the only positive to come out of today would be that surely Eric Black will no longer even be considered for the managers job after 3 dismal performances and just 2 points from 9. If whoever is making the decision knows anything about football then Black will be out the door very shortly. Danny Murphy was, yet again, diabolical. I doubt very much that a proper manager would even have him in the squad. A decision needs to be made in the next couple of days to allow the new man to settle in and have a full week before the Derby game.

4 games without a win for us at this level is unacceptable, irrespective of the managerial situation. Some of those players are going through the motions and are not committed to the cause. A high calibre manager would not accept this situation and would put the poor players out of the team.

I still have a nasty feeling it will be Black though. He wants the job, it doesn't appear we have done anything this week in looking/interviewing candidates and Black would be the easy and cheap option, popular with the players because he gives them an easy ride.

Wolves were by far the better team and they had 4 of their top players missing, Man for man they looked stronger and fitter than us. Couldn't understand the tactics not one flowing move. at least it sorts out all the issues , new manager in definitely, Black can't be considered after that, my main concern is that even if we get a new manager he can only go with what we've got and on today's performance that isn't very much. We live in hope!

This was the first game I've seen since the end of the season before last. I hardly remember the Kean games as they were so poor but I remember Fat Sam's games and I have to say that the team today was not a patch on the worse football any of Sam's teams ever played.

Kean's right hand man, personally selected by Kean himself, who sees the Rovers job as a top role had the perfect opportunity to inspire the team and stake his claim. The crowd clapped and cheered every good effort, piece of football or forward pass, but they were hardly heard all the game, such was the scarcity of FOOTBALL! Was I at a football match today? I hardly saw any. Black must have the charisma and motivatory powers of a black slug. He certainly has no tactical nous except for "If you don't know what to do, just trot about slowly and watch. Point and shout now and then." and "When in doubt pass it backwards".

Murphy had not a spark of creativity all day. Rovers will never win a battle with this 'midfield general'. Rhodes could do with a better first touch, but he was scrambling for scraps and never once had anything served on a plate. K-R was similar and looked depressed as did all the team. Robbo is now fat and lazy, in the warm up he never dived for balls where he would have to stretch hisself and he was quick to blame Murphy for the goal. Murphy was to blame for giving the free kick away but Robbo's position must have been poor to concede a goal from that angle. (but i need to see a replay).

Orr was enthusiastic and got into space but hardly received the ball. When he did receive it, however, he did nothing with it at all. I don't think K-R passed to him the whole game. He must know how bad he is.

Martin Olsson showed a few bits of attacking flair and crosses and was my man of the match, even though he was hardly involved in the game.

It was scrappy, it was boring, I hope it is the end of Black and that Shebby and Venkys saw for themselves Black, Hendry and staff should not be allowed near the team again. They left early so I hope that is a good sign.

Gutted. First game today for 12 months and to watch such a negative clueless performance does not inspire me to rush back again.
The only good thing to come out of the game was that Eric Black has proved he is nowhere near enough being the right man for the job.
The team was negative, the set up was negative and his lack of a substitution at the end was negative.
Where was the invention, passion or knowledge to win a game of football?
We need someone in quick who has the balls and pedigree to grab the club by the scruff of the neck and shake it upside down before this season becomes a chase for the playoffs.
I'm trying to remain positive but after today I can't see much positivity.
I've got rovers in my blood but when it's so frustrating it hurts.
Surely if the fans can see what needs to be done the the do called management can.

Come on you blues and come on venkys, get somebody in quick.
Shearer n newell, not sure.
McCarthy, not for me.
OGS possibly
Curbishley, would be a good shout.

There were around 6,000 extra home fans there than the last home game - around 60% increase.

The team and hence their levels of fitness were kean's and HIS number 2 kept much to his system apart from making us a little more secure at the back - some improvement in only a short time.

We still have many problems but if a man had a cold, a bit of arthritis, cataracts, potentially terminal cancer, noisy neighbours, a rusty car and an out of date 'phone the best thing you could do for him would be to cure his cancer - and we have done that for Rovers by getting rid of the idiot that you appear to miss.

You, sir, are either a dingle, a WUM or a sufferer of the same affliction borne by are despised ex manager.

Please do one either way.

The team and hence their levels of fitness were kean's and HIS number 2 kept much to his system apart from making us a little more secure at the back - some improvement in only a short time. We still have many problems but if a man had a cold, a bit of arthritis, cataracts, potentially terminal cancer, noisy neighbours, a rusty car and an out of date 'phone the best thing you could do for him would be to cure his cancer - and we have done that for Rovers by getting rid of the idiot that you appear to miss. You, sir, are either a dingle, a WUM or a sufferer of the same affliction borne by are despised ex manager. Please do one either way. petergray

Angry from accy, you wanted kean as manager? You fu@ing tool. Yeah blame the fans....its all their fault
Thank you. I am glad that someone agrees with me regarding the fans but as it happens, I have never actually said I wanted Kean as manager. I simply did not want him to be hounded out before we had a credible replacement.
Shebby the Snake has simply played to the mindless minority by undermining Kean rather than keeping his forked tongue out of it and working in the background to find a longer term solution. Now we will have a further period of uncertainty and inertia with a procession of pretenders putting themselves forward and Shebby the Snake appointing the successor solely on the support that the candidates muster on these sites.
Oh, and by the way, I do recognise sarcasm and a foul mothed insult fuelled by ignorance and a lack of vocabulary. It's difficult to contribute objectively to a constructive debate without an education but congratulations though for giving it a good little go.

Hard to know Kean's worst mistake, but it was probably appointing Black as his assistant. Said it last year, Black is only associated with negative football and failure, very similar to Mick McCarthy who is also rubbish.

Home attendance slightly disappointing, but no worse than you can expect given all the circumstances.

Not convinced Shearer would be the right man as manager, even though he is the best player ever to play for Rovers. Still prefer Hill or Grayson, can't see Di Canio leaving Swindon to move North. Gus Poyet a possibility? Done a marvellous job at Brighton with limited funds.

After staying away for 18 months I enjoyed being back at my old Club. But I must say the ground is now laoking a bit tired in places and is needing a bit of CLT. Style Ref letters faded ?. Blackburn end Stand Bill boards missing and looking scruffy, Stand roof lights all green and tarnished ( need pressure washing etc ) with some parts getting ready for a lick of paint. If this cosmetic neglet continues, the ground will look in a sorry state in a year or two. Not what Jack would have wanted for his beloved Stadium.
On the playing side then that is another matter. There needs to be a complete change of thinking to the playing stratergy and Shebby and Venkys need to get an experienced manager in urgently if you wish to rescue the season. I will only come back when a decent manager is installed, therefore Venkys please get your finger out in order that I may feel comfortable in getting my season ticket again.

Murphy was a disgrace today. A ridiculous 30 yard put out for the corner that led to the goal. Then neglecting his duties on the post when the shot came in - the rollicking he got from Robinson when it went in was fiully deserved. This man is our captain, yet often drives the play backwards rather than forwards, and the lack of incisive passes is thoroughly frustrating.
Don't get me wrong, i was not disappointed when he signed, but he looks so off the pace and lacking in fitness, not to mention motivational powers that he surely has little future in this team under a new manager.
When you look at the fact that he stayed on the pitch today, for me it speaks volumes about Black - he clearly doesn't have the bottle to manage at this club for fear of upsetting this senior pro - if you're not good enough, you're not good enough, regardless of previous clubs/ caps for your country etc.
Murphy should be doing for us what Graham Roberts did for Chelsea or Gordon Strachan did for Leeds in the late 1980's. Apologies to younger readers, but I was in my teens back then and when these senior pro's took the step down to the then 2nd division, they stood out head and shoulders above the rest and drove their teams to promotion. Perhaps you could say the same of Kevin Moran when he joined us.
For me Black confirmed today that he is not seriously in the running to take the job full time. The shame is though, you just can't trust Venky's to see this.

Well if there is a silver lining from today it is that Black firmly proved that he has the same level of tactical competence as Kean and has managed a worst points return than his predecessor. Black cannot be seriously considered for the managers position and should withdraw his interest. We desperately need a proven manager and tactician in now.

Forget Shearer we want someone with pedigree and the sooner the better as its a fiasco down there on match days.
After the goings on of the last two years and the continued diabolical displays on the pitch, I think the crowd today was pretty good. A lot more has to be done by the owners to tempt the missing thousands back through the gates. The ball is in their court.
Put some simple facts up
Played 10 games and played well in ???, out of the home games
Leicester out played us ~~~ we got away with it
Middlesbrough out played us
Barnsley where as good if not better than us ~~~~ we got away with it
Wolves where better than us
Hull where as good as us. ~~~~ we scrapped that game
Notice a pattern just on the home games
9 points we robbed we could have been looking at 0
As for the away games Leeds Bristol Charlton Ipswich Forrest
How many did we dominate Bristol ??
The rest fortunate at best
Time for some truths
We got relegated cos we weren't good enough and the same applies now
We could be in the bottom 3 quite easily
Last 2 games there goal keepers had just 5 shots to save between them
Playing 6 defenders in a team will get you relegated Don't score. Don't win
Orr Olson murphy Dunn Pederson Dann and Robinson should not be first teamers squad maybe but that's at best

I was a boycotter but as I pledged, bought my ST when Kean quit. Some fans have changed the criteria though. Either way, I dont feel any need to justify my actions having supported Rovers for over 30 decades. Today was awful but no worse than under Kean. Hes been lucky this season.

we are loosing our grip of wining matches. the players need to understand the value , time , effort to put and win the game to stay top always. Be think like a champions always, never loose any game.

It is getting very sad that we loose our home game in a raw, means 6 points from our ewood park pocket lost, its so big at the end of the season.

Murphy should take a call now - get one young lads to continue in his place. need pace and power make the difference.

Need players some fitness - hope a new manager and next two weeks time every one should gearup to another set of fight back.

Dont blame Murphy for playing 5 at the back, wing backs who never made themselves available, clueless Formica.atotal lack of any running off the ball, two strikers who cant control the ball,an unfit team of whom none of them make themselves an option to pass to. Beckenbauer would struggle in that set up!

Answering your question, no SK is not a racist or a rapist... although you could say that he has raped BRFC! He is a criminal though through his drink driving antics!
I do agree with you that any manager would struggle with this lot at the moment. Unfortunately it's the team that SK built and until someone comes in and gets rid of the deadwood, we are going to have to bear witness to more abysmal performances like today's for quite a while.

Players were making themselves available, I saw Olssen several times in first half and Orr in 2nd half crying out for the ball. Also Rhodes and Kazim Richards running across calling for it but 9 times out of 10 Murphy passed it back and the other time he passed it sideways. He's past it, knows it, and is turning up as his contract demands but has no interest whatsoever in helping Rovers. He is there to help himself and would rather pass to players who are marked or pass back rather than risk losing the ball by doing what he used to be capable of, which is being creative and serving the forwards. Absolute, total plonker.

BRFC need a manager and someone who is able to motivate the team and get the results that BRFC require week in, week out..
He has to be a Real, tried and tested manager with the contacts in the game.
And he'll have to bring in some decent players as we are short of quality and we need to get rid of the crap ones....
A proper manager not just some idiot or someone who is simply a coach.
BRFC have many times in their past appointed coaches as managers and this has always failed.
We def. need a real manager who can manage.
We need a manager who can bring in the right players
as today it showed how poor we are.................

...we surely need a defense and someone to replace Murphy as hes too old and past it.
BRFC should not never buy players over 30 unless they are exceptional.

It seems unbelievable to me that players with the experience and reputation of Danny Murphy are so poor. When he came here, the fans thought that he would be a midfield engine rather like the superb Tugay; what we have is an unfit shadow of a player; unfit, inaccurate passer and in truth not motivated. Clearly Black is not the man; he is out of his depth. Colin Hendry, who I have an enormous amount of respect for as a player seems to be unable to stamp this hallmark on what is a very poor Blackburn Rovers team. Whoever is appointed has to be very special to be able to halt the decline. The players are inexcusably lacking in commitment and not fit either physically or mentally. The club, the players, in fact the whole set up need a real shake up (and Ewood Park needs a coat of paint). My suggestions for what it is worth would be Mick McCarthy or OJS.

Not convinced Shearer would be the right man as manager, even though he is the best player ever to play for Rovers. Still prefer Hill or Grayson, can't see Di Canio leaving Swindon to move North.

You can't see DiCanio coming North from Swindon but you think Poyet will leave Brighton? Hmmmm.

Mind you, along with a Venkys job interview with Roy Keane, that would be another one I'd buy a ticket to watch; Venkys and DiCanio.

We all agree...We really do need a Manager...!
Poor Management was written all over this BRFC team. .....!
why play 5 in defense.......at home.......??????
BRFC need a manager and someone who is able to motivate the team and get the results that BRFC require week in, week out..
He has to be a Real, tried and tested manager with the contacts in the game. And he'll have to bring in some decent players as we are short of quality and we need to get rid of the crap ones....
A proper manager not just some idiot or someone who is simply a coach.
BRFC have many times in their past appointed coaches as managers and this has always failed.
We def. need a real manager who can manage.
We need a manager who can bring in the right players
as today it showed how poor we are.................


...we surely need a defense and someone to replace Murphy as hes too old and past it.

BRFC should not never buy players over 30 unless they are exceptional.
Players over 30 ish are past it as the demands of football require fast energetic individuals who can keep on going for 90 minutes.
That means players like Murphy, Dunn, and others over 30 would have to go or let their contracts finish.

We have many young ones that have been bought in lately, although untried., I believe we need to give them a chance as they may give 90 minutes of energy and commitment which is surely required.

I agree. this squad has been thrown together without any thought. An unbalanced team of has beens and never has beens. What did we expect when they appointed Kean as manager though.

Fully agree with you on shearer. Why fans on here think he'd make a good manager I just can't fathom. Where's the evidence? He proves he knows very little just by opening his mouth. So he's not even a good pundit. As for his management experience? Well he couldn't inspire Newcastle to stay up so how will he inspire our lot?

Disagree with you on McCarthy. Proven track record at this level. Ok perhaps not at the top level so much but then we aren't there yet. Solskjar has no English league experience so that might be a risk

For me I'd go for someone with a few hundred games of relevant experience under his belt

I think the best man for the job right now is Eric Black. His enterprising brand of football may not have reaped immediate dividends but in time it will. Surely.

Of course, Black was Kean's understudy and he is no Steve Kean, as the lack of goals demonstrate. But he is very good at standing around with Colin Hendry - a.k.a "THE ORC" who sulkily chews on his gum offering nothing except aggression towards elderly neighbours when they ask for a portion of their life savings back.

However, two hard drinking Scottish deadbeats are more than adequate for a club of your stature. You used to manage with just one! While Kean left you and is soon to sue I understand (well it was an impossible situation what with interference from all sides - as his lawyers will no doubt attest - and I of course will believe Steve Kean's lawyers), you will just have to make do with his self appointed replacement - Mr Black.

I'd like to see a bit more of Shebby Kean around the dug out. Him and Hendry could have fruitful discussions about the midfield tactics, and these could be passed on to Black, who would benefit greatly from Shebby and Colin's experience.

I trust you find this advice to be of use.

Or you could just appoint Alan Shearer. And then I will laugh my f*ucking head off.

Go ahead....make my day

The situation over the last few weks has been a bit dis-organised and messd-up (along with the past two years). Despite Kean was clueless, he took you to the top (1st, 2nd, 3rd) of the Championship and then resigned, but the odd thing is, you don't seem to have anyone as a firm favourite. Sure there is speculation of McCarthy and Shearer, but it's simple gossip. So now you're stuck with who seems another clueless manager/caretaker and no-one to replace him anytime soon, so it appears you'll remain mid-table all month. It's like Shebby has thought, "Steve will leave soon, but who cares how awful our caretaker manager is, as long as we get money from the few extra fans!". A few weeks later, "Black is sh!t and we have no one to replace him!"

Overall, a pure dis-organised f**k up from Blackburn. But some good debating from Blackburn fans showing they know what logical things should and need to happen. Stick with it guys, only October...
