Today we had our first training with the whole team with the new boss. It was a quality training and the mood was great. Steve Kean is not a new man at Blackburn Rovers, he has been a first team coach for a while now so he is well known in the squad. Kean is a very talented and respected man within Blackburn Rovers and I am not at all worried about the future. The team has agreed that we should only look forward and that is always the next game. This time it’s West Ham and they will pay for the incredibly annoying defeat to Bolton. The mood of the club is very good, and people enjoying themselves on training. Today it was really nice because the weather gods was kind enough to send a real snow shower over the pitch. It made me feel really like home, but unfortunately you can not say to everybody today, because it looked like El Hadji Diouf missed his hat when it was snowing heavily, but he’s a real sport and took it with a smile.
