I applaud you Steve Kean

Hola. Hope you are well.

I have to start by stating my admiration for Steve Kean. Even now after overseeing Blackburn’s relegation he’s still saying he wants to stay on as manager and guide them back up next season. For that level of stubbornness and bloody mindedness I applaud you Steve Kean.

The Blackburn fans’ anger has always been directed towards Steve Kean and Venky’s. With the biggest accusation against the latter is that they don’t know anything about running a football club, nor did they have the finances to make a success of running a Premiership club. So my argument is why aren’t the Blackburn fans not more annoyed at the people who sold their club to the Venky’s, after all they were footballing people.

Now on to the new England manager. When the Liverpool fans sung “Hodgson for England”, I assumed they were being sarcastic but now I’m thinking they might be psychic. I’m not going to go on about Roy Hodgson being the England manager because it would appear everyone involved in football has got there before me, but when your rallying cry on your first day in charge is “Give me a chance”, you probably know you’re facing an uphill battle.

The question now is who is going to take over from Roy Hodgson at West Brom. I think it should be Alex McLeish. In the spirit of fairness he should be allowed to sprinkle his ‘magic’ over as many Midlands clubs as possible. In years to come I would like Midlanders to associate destruction with Alex McLeish. Maybe in the future youngster will be scared into doing chores by parents with the threat that if they don’t this Alex McLeish figure will come and get them and maybe make them watch, dull, defensive, uninspiring football for a season or two.

And Finally… I recently watched a video and thought it was pretty amazing. It’s of a Belgium footballer, Anthony Van Loo, who due to a heart condition plays with a defibrillator built into his heart. In the clip, you see him collapse to the ground after having a cardiac arrest and then as the defibrillator kicks in, you see his body jolt and then soon after he’s sat upright. To view the clip, click here. It’s amazing to see what modern medicine can do.

Til next time, stay safe!
