Blackburn Rovers boss Kean in battle to keep Clement

WANTED: Paul Clement is in demand from Carlo Ancelotti

WANTED: Paul Clement is in demand from Carlo Ancelotti

STEVE Kean faces a fight to keep hold of his assistant manager Paul Clement – less than three months after bringing him to Ewood Park.

Newly appointed Paris St Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen on being reunited with Clement, having worked with him during his management tenure at Chelsea, and will attempt to lure him to France.

Clement would be interested in teaming up with Ancelotti once more, if a deal could be agreed with Rovers, leaving an under fire Kean in danger of losing his second assistant this season.

Kean himself has already admitted to being surprised by the sacking of his former number two John Jensen earlier this campaign and is desperate to keep hold of Clement as the club fight against relegation.

Clement’s potential exit would leave Kean looking for his third assistant of the season at a pivotal time of the campaign with Rovers desper-ately looking to strengthen their squad during this month’s transfer window.

Clement, 39, had previously worked with Kean at Fulham but was also assistant first team coach under Ancelotti at Stamford Bridge until the Italian’s departure in the summer brought about his own exit.

Rovers were unavailable for comment yesterday but Paris St Germain sources have confir-med Clement is wanted by their new manager, who was appointed at the end of last month.

Clement is understood to have arrived late at Rovers’ Brockhall training ground yesterday with club sources unsure about where his future would lie.

Meanwhile Rovers have turned down a bid from Newell’s Old Boys to secure the return of Argentine midfielder Mauro Formica.

Formica’s former employers were alerted to Formica’s availability after the player himself admitted to wanting to return him, but Rovers will not allow him to leave on a temporary basis.

Formica said: “My agent spoke with the leaders of Blackburn to see if they would let me go on loan. It was a possibility and I got excited a lot.

“But the sporting director told him to sit and talk only if it was a sale.”

It is understood Rovers would allow the 23-year-old to leave if anyone matches their 5million euros valuation.

Experienced duo Jason Roberts and Michel Salgado are also understood to be available for sale this month, with both frozen out of first team affairs due to ‘contractual issues’.

A number of Premier League clubs, including Spurs and QPR, are understood to be monitoring Rovers’ skipper Chris Samba but no offer has yet gone in for him.

If PSG will be paying Rovers compensation then Venkys will be taking the money and we will be looking for another coach. Not sure that I can see whether Paul Clement has had any effect as we still cant keep a clean sheet.

True.

I do wonder though what difference an assistant coach can make when his boss is learning as he goes/doesn't know what he's doing.

Quite right, HH, it's a no brainer. He's bound to plum for Rovers, who wouldn't under the circumstances you describe ?
Roberts and Salgado going is to reduce the wage bill, I can't see them bringing in much of a transfer fee. On the one hand Venkys are reducing running costs to keep on the right side of the bankers but they're still short of some big money payoffs, meaning they will have sell someone (at least one) for a biggish fee - realistically that's on Samba, Hoilett and N'Dozi.

Any team that loses three games in a row at home to WBA, Bolton and Stoke is going down. Then add to that the stubborness of the owners to not change manager, and also to compound this by selling more of our best players in Jan and you are looking at a final points tally of about 22 points for this season.

Under the John Williams/Tom Finn regime, I am sure that Paul Clements (as any football coach would do) be tempted to leave, however probably could be persuaded to stay. However, the Kean/Venkys/Anderson set up inspires little or no loyalty at all - all three an absolute waste of space.

Thanks for the explanation of the sub mix-up, I'm on the Riverside so I only saw the confusion and heard Gerald "ever so loyal" getting the subs announcement mixed up. But I did see Formica's face - the lad was really relieved to be called off and really fed up when Airmiles waved him to stay on the right wing. Formica is a slight lad and simply doesn't have the body strength -at least at this stage -to match his undoubted skill. If ever a face said "please let me go home" it was his on Monday.

This would be my tactics this transfer window. Bearing in mind that it is looking like we have to sell a player to bring a player in. First, I would get rid of Andrews, Formica, Roberts, Goodwillie, Riberiro, Anderson, Salgado and if he won’t sign and a good bid comes in Hoilett. This would bring in circa £15-18m.
Then I would contact Rangers and ask about a cash and player swap with Goodwillie and jelavic, we would probably have to also issue a cheque of £4m to make this happen. Then I would test Redknapp’s support for Kean by asking about a possible loan bid for Stephen Pienaar. It’s looking like Kean is going to try and buy Johnson from Fulham, and Gunter from Forest. Presuming Kean buys Johnson and Gunter, I would use the rest of the money and any venky’s care to contribute (well we can hope) to buy a creative midfielder and a centre half. This would make us stronger than we are now and give us a chance of staying up.

The bank have looked at their proposals and basically told them no way !! They suddenly realise they have no viable means of supporting this club without jeopardizing their own personal fortunes, hence:- Kean stays, cheap option no compensation no new backroom staff to fund no new players to buy. No chairman required as would need a salary.No players bought in Jan ( maybe a couple loanees) best players, or infact any that can command a fee sold any that cant released to ease wage bill. Owners already have their 23 million back from sale of Jones and Kalinic, Scott Dann probly hasnt bee paid for yet not in full anyhow. Owners can stay on other side of world slap Keano on back and let him take all the stick !! That my friends is where we are at and clubs in that position never never never never (Pompey, Leeds, Southampton,Sheff Wed, Bradford, etc etc etc) ever survive. Relegation is a certainty Administration probable and a very long and inglorious exile to the lower divisions very likely. And there is nothing we can do, coz nobody at the top wants to listen.

No one in their right mind would elect to stay at BRFC given the shambolic set up, from top to bottom.

It is going to take one almighty wake up call to reverse all the damage done.
However, I seriously doubt we can ever get back to what we were (this being the years since dear Jack departed).
The club were being run almost self sufficiently (this, under his instructions) The days of money to spend have long departed, so we can forget that. But all would love to see us back to being run with honesty and decency again. This is not beyond the bounds of possibility.

Kean has lied about the Roberts and Salgado situation...if he had said what most of us had thought, i,e, they have had there day, time to move on as your making no difference, then yea we would accept that...LIES!

And, finally, before the Liverpool and Man U game, how many of you were going to give the Stoke home game a miss due to the shocking results of late and of course the vile yet justified anger at the Manager and Venkys, yet we turned up, but witnessed the true reflection of our great club...relegation at the hands of Cowboys and Indians!

This would be my tactics this transfer window. Bearing in mind that it is looking like we have to sell a player to bring a player in. First, I would get rid of Andrews, Formica, Roberts, Goodwillie, Riberiro, Anderson, Salgado and if he won’t sign and a good bid comes in Hoilett. This would bring in circa £15-18m.
Then I would contact Rangers and ask about a cash and player swap with Goodwillie and jelavic, we would probably have to also issue a cheque of £4m to make this happen. Then I would test Redknapp’s support for Kean by asking about a possible loan bid for Stephen Pienaar. It’s looking like Kean is going to try and buy Johnson from Fulham, and Gunter from Forest. Presuming Kean buys Johnson and Gunter, I would use the rest of the money and any venky’s care to contribute (well we can hope) to buy a creative midfielder and a centre half. This would make us stronger than we are now and give us a chance of staying up.
Sorry adcr, your primary school maths doesn't add up.
.
Formica - £3m - £3.5m (5m Euros max)
Andrews - £1m tops.
Roberts - £Free.
Anderson - £Free.
Salgado - £Free.
Ribeiro - £500k tops.
Goodwillie - £2m tops.
Hoilett - £2m (5 months left on contract).
.
If we got £8m between the lot of them I'd be amazed - more lilkley to loan them out and save on the wage bill where they can. Plus don't forget, you never get paid up front - it's £1m here, appearances money there, £500k deferred for 18 months etc etc.
.
So, if it is true Venkys owe £10m to the bank, we get 50% in the bank (£4m) immediately for the players sold, Venkys still have to find £6m somewhere within the next month!!

All the speculation on who should come in during the Jan window founders if it is based on football considerations. Getting Pienaar as some part exhange for Samba makes a little sense football wise, but Venkys and their puppet Kean are only making financial decisions. It is clear that Venkys are cutting Airmiles a bit of slack to make PR are statements to give the impression that "I'm doing my best but my hands are tied", but all that we'll see during Jan is Rovers moving inexorably towards to exit.

recently some newspapers have reported teams considering bids for hoilett in the region of £8-10m. that's what i based my figures on.

this is my understanding of the hoilett situation. if he stays in england and lets his contract run down, rovers are entitled to a fee, via a tribunal. if he moves abroad then we get nothing. these factors and the fact he looks to be developing into a quality player with many teams wanting to sign him. makes me think we will get considerably more than the usual for players who are close to the end of their contract. if he is sold this transfer window. so maybe the newspapers are correct in their assumption. i hope so because £2m for hoilett is disgraceful.

I notice that, the momentum was with the team, so what do they do faff about.

Got to laugh though …when Kean came out for the start of the match he was signing his autograph for a couple of kids….he thought another kid wanted an autograph,but the young lad wouldn’t let Kean sign his programme……Kean walked a way smiling but, really embarrassed …the lad's name was Smell :-D

Blackburn or Paris - no brainer before one considers the football angle - Bye Bye Paul - dont blame you.

Like others I would like to know if Venkys have done a Lord Lucan and vanished - at the very point in time the club neeeds leadership and support - the silence from India is deafening.

As for the players and transfer window - well Kean said we need them in early and what has happened - nothing and then one wonders why fans get angry with everyone concerned but it should be a Venkys out cmapaign from now under they show some responsibility for buying the club

This would be my tactics this transfer window. Bearing in mind that it is looking like we have to sell a player to bring a player in. First, I would get rid of Andrews, Formica, Roberts, Goodwillie, Riberiro, Anderson, Salgado and if he won’t sign and a good bid comes in Hoilett. This would bring in circa £15-18m.
Then I would contact Rangers and ask about a cash and player swap with Goodwillie and jelavic, we would probably have to also issue a cheque of £4m to make this happen. Then I would test Redknapp’s support for Kean by asking about a possible loan bid for Stephen Pienaar. It’s looking like Kean is going to try and buy Johnson from Fulham, and Gunter from Forest. Presuming Kean buys Johnson and Gunter, I would use the rest of the money and any venky’s care to contribute (well we can hope) to buy a creative midfielder and a centre half. This would make us stronger than we are now and give us a chance of staying up.
How can you swap Goodwillie,
you sold him in your first sentence.

BRFC, a complete joke or what, let’s just list a few of the c@ckups going on down at Ewood.

Coach Number one leaves, manager does not know why (Bullsh@t).

Coach number two seems to be leaving us now, I wonder WHY!!

Salgardo and Roberts can’t play because they would get extended contracts.

Samba about to go, followed by Hoilett, (trust me this is going to happen)

Formica wants to go and he is playing regularly - WHY

Protests about to start again, I wonder WHY

To the nationwide press and TV pundits, I would ask you just to look at Mr Kean’s record whilst he has been in charge at the club.
Overall record Played -40 Won-8, this season played 20 won 3, when we DO get relegated what will you say then?

Finally a message to the Owners

Dear Mrs Desia
It is not your fault you personally know nothing about football, but here is a clue that may help you and your brothers,

Mr O’Neil (new manager) with Sunderland have gained 12 points from the last 5 games and now 10th in the league with 24 points from 20 games, not 14 points from 20 games.
(Hint hint)

Finally to the owners and the manager, both your records and promises you have made at my beloved club are an absolute disgrace and you should be ashamed of yourselves

I very much doubt that many of the populace over there have much time or interest in what is happening in East Lancs (wherever that is?).
However, for those that do feel a dislike for venkys, it would be something to add to their list of complaints about them.
It is over here on these shores, within the corridors of power here, where the assault has to be launched.
Agreed. I would suggest that whoever contacts them tries to keep the message succinct and not too long. Most of India do not care one iota about football, so just focus on the Venkys being liars and frauds. It may also be a good idea to go beyond even referring to 'Venkys', and focus more on the Mrs Desai and her brothers by name. Get across that this family are frauds and liars. That will be something that will hurt their reputation with whoever they do business with.

This week's LET "Kean said: “I have been told nothing about selling. We are only going to try to add. I have said before we are going to keep the basis of the squad together and add to that and that is the way we will hopefully approach this window.”

Surely Kean is aware of the transfer plan, or is there a manager in charge of transfers that we do not know about...

It is the lying that creates the mistrust and hatred Steve, just stop it, you are taking us for fools - grow up and go, you worthless, lying, waste of space. never mind my employee, if you were my son I would be taking you to task about your conduct. Go! Go! Go!!!

Love Rovers Hate Venkys says...

I agree with most posters on here, that say we have to target Venky's. They are THE cancer that is spreading through this once proud club. And at a rapid rate of knots. If these parasites are allowed to continue, they will strip the club BARE. Just look at the damage they have caused in a little over 12 months. Can you imagine where we will be in another 12? Or another after that? It doesn't bear thinking about.

These parasites will stay, whilst there are still things left to sell. They will stay until they have STOLEN every last penny of Jack Walkers legacy. They have the morals of sewer rats, and will sink to any depth to achieve their goal; TO BLEED THIS CLUB DRY FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL GAIN! Time really is of the essence, to rid this famous old Lancashire football club, of these PARASITES.

Anything and everything must be done to discredit the Venky brand, both nationally, and internationally. The gloves must come off, and it must now be NO HOLDS BARRED.

Even the most optimistic amongst us, must now accept that relegation is inevitable. So what is there left to lose? NOTHING!

Venky's have fcuked up our future. Let's fcuk up theirs!

Venky's: You are absolute SCUM!

A New Year is upon us, let us gather our thoughts before we go forward:
1. Venky's have shown they are not financialy capable and simply do not have the knowledge or community aspirations to run a British football club.
2. Kean, Anderson and Co are in the care of the agents, which were appointed by Venky's to look after business. All of which get a regular paycheck.
3. Barclays are already coleting on debt of Venky's London - a company barely 3yrs old - which shows how little collatoral the VH Group put up for that little concern...expecting a quick profit me thinks....
4. Except for a win at Fulham and a bad run by 8 clubs above us over the next few months, we are guaranteed to the drop - no matter who manages or owns us, or who is in the team.

Time to realize our future.. not much we can do about it - not going to the games is not going to hurt the VH Group much, but at least you won't be contributing to failure.
Stay away for now and when we start off next season in the Champs, with new owners, a new manager and new team, then we become the pheonix... we will return.... the people of Blackburn are BRFC - they can never take that away from you....Burnley - we are coming to kick your A$%$^ - now that will cheer us up...:)
