Sky Sports News Radio host Mikey Burrows makes a case to keep Steve Kean in the Blackburn hotseat in his second weekly blog for TEAMtalk.
There are many things in life I don't understand: complicated maths, the inner workings of an F1 car, why Georgie Thompson won't return my calls...
But few are more confusing to me how a Championship manager can lose one game and be in danger of losing his job.
Steve Kean is clearly not the most popular bloke around Ewood Park. In fact he's probably not that welcome in most of Lancashire if the Rovers Your Say board is to be believed, but surely he deserves better treatment than he's had the past week?!
Relegation clearly hurt, it always does. But I'm a great believer in treating each season as it comes and having kept his job over the summer, Kean should be given a fair chance to get Blackburn back up into the Premier League.
In many respects the owners have been good to him. The likes of Nuno Gomes, Danny Murphy and Dickson Etuhu won't have come cheap and the £8million spent on Jordan Rhodes is a huge sign of intent for a Championship side.
So why then having allowed the manager to spend so freely do they undermine that support by allowing the kind of circus that took place after last Fridays defeat to Middlesbrough?
People have been queuing up all week to come on Sky Sports News Radio and talk about it.
Former Rovers striker Matt Jansen called for fans to be more patient.
Defender Alan Wright told us there wasn't this much pressure in the high-spending days of Sir Jack Walker and Kenny Dalglish.
So you do have to wonder what impact all of this has on the players, especially when you consider that taking 14 points from their opening seven games would normally be acclaimed as a 'very good start'. History shows us that if you average two points a game, you'll more than likely be promoted.
But it has to be in the back of their minds that a bad result at any time could see the manager sacked.
Dean Windass and Bradford captain Ricky Ravenhill were on the Football League Hour with me on Thursday night and both spoke passionately about the senior players at the club helping Kean out.
In a past life I used to report on Wolves and it was my job to interview Mick McCarthy before games. I had my fair share of verbal batterings from the honest-speaking Yorkshireman in the early days, but as time went on Mick would often laugh and joke and give me the benefit of the doubt when I inevitably asked a stupid question.
When Wolves were having a tough time and I had to bring the prospect of relegation into conversation, Mick would always recite the same mantra: "It's not where we are right now, it's where we are after the final whistle on the final day of the season that counts."
The same message goes out to Blackburn's owners and fans. It's a long old season and there'll be plenty of twists and turns to come.
