    y thoughts people???
    Next season, anything and anyone of value will have to be sold, or even given away.

    Desperate Dann got relegated last season with Birmingham, and will demand a move. He feels he is far too good to play at Championship level. He isn't.

    Pederson will be on at LEAST 20K a week, and will have to be off loaded, one way or another.

    The Yak will bring in a couple of Mil, so will be touted around mid table PL clubs. It's well known that Robbo is VERY sympathetic towards the protesters, and I presume will be another high earner. £20K+ per week? He'll have to go, whether he likes it or not.

    I'm also convinced that Venky's will not put another penny into this club, and they'll expect it to be self financing from here on in. Add to that a dramatic fall in ST sales, and walk on fans, and we're in for a VERY difficult end to 2012.

    It would not surprise me in the least, if we're not in administration before Christmas, which will obviously incur a 10 point deduction, and the very real prospect of a second successive relegation.

    As long as Venky's own the club, Kean will remain as manager, as he's obviously 'in on the act', so to speak.
    Never has anything been more likely. We will be left with a team of reserves next season. All of those players will have dug their tunnels out already. When Venkys are eventually banned from football for life as Craig White has been, they will respond in the same way "we couldnt care less"."

GALLERY: Blackburn Rovers fans urged to grow a 'Givet beard' for survival

Gael Givet's beard is the focus of a new campaign.

The campaign has the backing of Givet himself.

First published in News

BLACKBURN Rovers’ relegation battle is getting a bit hairy – with fans growing a ‘Givet beard for survival’.

In honour of bearded favourite Gael Givet, Rovers fans have started a Twitter campaign for fans to copy his facial hair to inspire a great escape.

It will certainly be a close shave but Rovers are hoping they don’t finish a whisker away from safety.

To join the campaign, which has been backed by Givet himself, go to #GivetBeardForSurvival on Twitter.

Organisers of the campaign are also urging Givet beard growers to make a donation to East Lancashire Hospice
