Anyone seen this:
Citizen

He's obviously been stupid, but there is a bit more to the article...


It was after the Norwich game, when the players held a meeting about the poor form.

If things are as rosy as Kean says, why are the players having meetings without him. Doesnt indicate they are united behind Kean to me.

Agreed, more interest in the meeting, wasn't aware Givet was one of the clan.

Givet, who earns 15,000 a week


This can't be possibly correct, right? Or does the income become public knowledge in such court cases in UK?

A "players' meeting" which he emerged from at 2am after travelling back from Norwich, one of the better displays of the season by common consent?

These lads are more conscientious than we could ever know arent they?

Fancy, after a tough game with a disappointing outcome they convene an ad hoc meeting to discuss failings and foibles.

At which a modicum of alcohol is taken.

Here are some lines for the more gullible among you to read between.

Perhaps that's what he takes home after tax.

It was probably court-speak. I don't normally go out for a meal with my same-level colleagues to talk about poor performance at work unless the boss organises it!

I was just wondering about this. Steve Kean gets convicted of DD and we have a zillion page thread, a poll calling for his dismissal and a general character assassination. I do realise he appears to have lied in court (I say seems because I haven't read it myself) and Givet just took it on the chin.

Givet gets 7 replies and a "these things happen" shrug of the shoulders. Double standards on behalf of many people in my view.

I condemned Kean and the same goes for Givet, drink driving is a incredibly selfish act which has destroyed the lives of so many people.

Drink dirvinig is not 'one of those things', be it Kean or Givet, however it was Kean's brazen lying under oath and general shirking of repsonsibility that got my goat.

Drink driving is wrong. What Steve Kean did is worse.

Drink driving is very wrong.
But there's no double standards, Steve Kean has done a lot of other things to get fans backs up and create this horrible situation than Givet has. The drink driving for Kean just added fuel to the fire as far as I'm concerned.

I know what you're saying but I think the issue that most have with Kean is that he lied in court claiming that a supporter spiked his drink. Givet hasn't done that, that for me is the difference

Spot on. Drink & driving is of course highly unacceptable and should be struck hard upon, its very dissapointing by Givet, however Givet hasnt lied about it, like Kean did, hence the different reactions.

All the best Gael, proper pro but football can be forgotten at times like that.

Didn't his Mrs recently have a kid as well?

Just a thought. Many are divided in.heart for bolton match. Win, Kean could stay. Lose Kean could be sacked.

I believe Kean is sacked already.

I always want Rovers to win. But it would be good it they beat bolton for Givet. Win it for Givet. Chant Givet throughout the match. Forget Kean, ignore him during the match. But outside the stadium, no matter result.Kean out chants outside the.JW.

Givet out again

Are we being fed further lies by Kean? Starting to sound too similar to the Nelsen saga, I'll be surprised if he plays again this season.
