Venky’s set to attend Charlton fixture

Anuradha Desai

First published in Sport

BLACKBURN Rovers’ under fire owners Venky’s are set to be at Ewood Park this weekend – with club matriarch Anuradha Desai preparing for just her second visit since The Walker Trust sold up in November 2010.

Co owners Desai, Balaji and Venkatesh Rao are all understood to be making the journey from India later this week to welcome in new manager Michael Appleton’s regime.

Appleton and his assistant Ashley Westwood will take charge for the first time on Saturday, for the Championship visit of Charlton Athletic, and are set to meet their bosses.

It is believed Venky’s will also attempt to sort out the divide in the hierarchy behind the scenes, with global advisor Shebby Singh’s Rovers future uncertain.

Desai’s only other Rovers visit was for a defeat to Tottenham back in February 2011 – a trip that coincided with the departure of former chairman John Williams.

The Rao brothers have watched Rovers numerous times earlier this campaign but the weekend’s visit will be their first for a couple of months.

Mrs D should go on the big screen, get down on her knees and prostrate herself in front of the fans. Then issue the biggest apology she possibly can. Saying sorry to all the fans for Venky's actions over the last two years and promising to LISTEN to the fans in future.

Can they rember how to get to the ground. Maybe they have listened to the PR company they have employed to tell them what is the obvious things they should be doing. Shebby needs to learn to work with others for the good of the Club or he will be finished. Any new players should be the decision of the manager alone and Shebby should respect that. I hope the visit is to rally the troops in order to push the Club forward and not because things have blown up in their faces already since Appleton has arrived.and it is not a crisis meeting.

If the Venkys get a hostile reception it will be a long, long time before we see them again.

As we are stuck with them and there is zero chance of any other potential buyers coming along fans' passions should be aimed at getting the new regime off to a great start.

Those clowns on here who talk about grovelling apologies from our Indian owners need to get in touch with the real world.

It would be an immense shame in all senses of the word if Michael Appleton's first game in charge was overshadowed by futile insults aimed at the owners.

The best action is not to barrack the Venkys at the Charlton game, it is to boycott the game so that Venkys are greeted by a desolate stadium and a wall of silence. Nothing would be more effective than a boycott in driving into their thick skulls the contempt in which they are held, and nothing would be better at speeding the demise of The Global Adviser.

Here here, how about getting down to the ground and supporting the team. Yes Venkys have made huge mistakes and huge changes are needed. but kicking off at Venkys in the ground will this really help the team???? I for one don't want them here but lets be real nobody else would buy this club with the mess it is now in. I will be hoping for 3 points and continue the climb back up the table. COYB

I agree with that comment. As it stands with the losses the club is making at the moment Venkys are all that is standing between us and administration. I would agree that they have caused the current problems but I think our efforts would be better put to getting behind the team and help them get 3 points on Saturday. Just my view although I do understand that feelings are running high and many will want to let them have both barrels and I wouldn't condem anyone who wanted to do this. Can't say they don't deserve any abuse they get.

Well this is our big chance to show how we feel about the Venky's ownership of Blackburn Rovers.

We must vent our displeasure at how they have mismanaged the club, ignored the customers of their business (the fans) and sold our best players for financial gain.

Vocal protests must be made BEFORE the game, and I suggest that this is done at the main entrance on Nuttall Street.

I do not believe we should protest duing the game and if we leave it until after the match we will probably discover that the Venkys will have left the ground on police advice.

So get down to Ewood early and protest.

Put this one down as an away banker then & shove a few quid on it. I imagine the atmosphere will be toxic with the fans who care about the club venting their anger towards clueless owners, the moaners critising these fans for having an opinion that reflects their concerns. Going to be some atmosphere, but not one conducive to play football in. There you go I've given Apple-head his post match excuses , when what he should be saying is "yes we were poor, but no matter because I'm out of my depth, only came here because Shaw offered me more money than Oyston , I'm a yes man, won't answer back or offer any of my opinions & I'll spin it out until I get the bullet and they find another mug to jump on the gravy train"

The fans must take this opportunity to let venkys know what they think of them, this is a rare opportunity because venkys are never here. how else can the supporters express their feelings to these idiots who in two years have taken us from a top ten club to the sh*te we are in now. Give them hell, it may be years before they turn up again and you get another chance, may be best before and after the game and not during!

No excuse for staying away this Saturday - get your tickets, get down Ewood and lets all give these Venkys scum a verbal earbashing - just so Mrs D (the invisible woman) is in no doubt what we think of them.

And please don't say "It shows they'll learning" - only the most gulible of Rovers fan can now ever believe such guff.

Yesterday they employed a PR firm - WHY ??? - they don't need to hire such a firm - a PR firms job is, basically, to "polish the turd" - if Venkys want to look better in the eyes of Rovers fans, sponsers and the football world in general then its quite simple -

Don't employ a turd polisher ! - just start doing things in a CORRECT fashion - show some humility - appologise for the shambles you've caused - put some CASH into the club and sack those morons Agnew, Shaw and Singh and emply a proper football CEO who has the power to put in his own staff and make proper footballing decisions without having to refer back to some woman sat in an ivory tower in the @rse end of India and who knows NOTHING about fooball !!!
Depending on which side you stand for depends on what you do. On the one hand you pay your twenty quid and do as you say. Not being businessmen and women they think, okay its obvious that the fans aint happy so what shall we do, A) spend another 2 million on PR with another PR firm or B ) Sell up and be looked at as a failure but move on. To be honest I think they would go for A and waste another 2 million which would be better spent on the squad. if going for option B then maybe this is what the missing 10000 have been waiting for, maybe its time for them all to come back when Venkys have gone.
Unfortunately there are no buyers so whats the answer? I don't know but
you seem to be of the philosophy you train a dog by kicking it, come here boy, KICK, come here boy KICK, they may not know anything about football, whereas in your case you just know nothing about anything.
So they haven't attended for nigh on 12 months and the first time an opportunity to open dialogue with them is lost because you kicked them when they came, doesn't make sense to me.

If there's any venting towards the VILEky's it may be a good idea to do it before kickoff, at half time and after full time rather than during the game.

I certainly won't be attending though, so i really have no say :)

This is the first chance and perhaps only chance we will have to make some impression on Mrs Desai - the woman who calls all the shots.

We have got to show her what we fee about her mis-management of our football club.

As I have said earlier, any protests must be made BEFORE and not during the game but we can't just sit there and pretend eveything is rosy.

Depending on which side you stand for depends on what you do. On the one hand you pay your twenty quid and do as you say. Not being businessmen and women they think, okay its obvious that the fans aint happy so what shall we do, A) spend another 2 million on PR with another PR firm or B ) Sell up and be looked at as a failure but move on. To be honest I think they would go for A and waste another 2 million which would be better spent on the squad. if going for option B then maybe this is what the missing 10000 have been waiting for, maybe its time for them all to come back when Venkys have gone.
Unfortunately there are no buyers so whats the answer? I don't know but
you seem to be of the philosophy you train a dog by kicking it, come here boy, KICK, come here boy KICK, they may not know anything about football, whereas in your case you just know nothing about anything.
So they haven't attended for nigh on 12 months and the first time an opportunity to open dialogue with them is lost because you kicked them when they came, doesn't make sense to me.
you seem to say alot without actually saying anything but you always seem to end up insulting your fellow Rovers fans - I see you do it later as well - what a tool you are.

"Open dialogue with Venkys" - hahahaha - now who's in cloud cuckoo land - these people have NEVER conversed with ANYONE - even Paul Hunt complained they wouldnt speak with him and they had appointed him acting CEO of the club.

I do think some people made a fair point to vent our anger at Venkys BEFORE the game then get behind MA and the players, during the game.

But then again, I know nothing about anything so I've probably got that wrong as well.

Still, I'm sure you'll be their on Saturday and you'll do 100% the right thing and every other Rovers fan there (acording to you) will do everything 100% wrong because you're perfect and everyone else never knows anything nor are they allowed an opinion - what an insecure person you are.

I agree with that comment. As it stands with the losses the club is making at the moment Venkys are all that is standing between us and administration. I would agree that they have caused the current problems but I think our efforts would be better put to getting behind the team and help them get 3 points on Saturday. Just my view although I do understand that feelings are running high and many will want to let them have both barrels and I wouldn't condem anyone who wanted to do this. Can't say they don't deserve any abuse they get.
Venkys put the club in this position and have done jack sh*t to make amend lets face it venkys have rubbed b/burn and the fans faces in there sh*t so i can understand some fans want t apply alittle bit of their own sh*t back at them

Thats a great idea, when the boycotters come back, you can yell them its everybody out, just remember to tell them because they haven't returned yet from last time
Hi 8 ball, I think you now have to accept that the ' boycotters' ain't coming back.

Since Kean went things have gone from bad to worse. Until these owners start doing the right thing we will have to accept row after row of empty seats.

I do not believe we should protest duing the game and if we leave it until after the match we will probably discover that the Venkys will have left the ground on police advice.

So get down to Ewood early and protest.
You talk a lot of sense Riversider.

We have to make it clear, outside the ground, that we do not like what Venkys have done to our club.

We have to make it clear, inside the ground, that we are the passionate fans we say we are and that we support our team.

The media will go crazy if they have the opportunity to say Blackburn fans don't support their club.
Totally agree this is our big chance to tell the Venkys exactly how we feel about them and then running of the club - personally I will not go inside the ground but will vent my feelings outside the ground before the kick off - these clowns including Agnew Singh & Co should be under no mis apprehension as to our disgust/distaste at the way the club has and is being run

Oh look, all the doomongers and Naysayers are agreeing to burn another house down.
Complete with their end of the world is nigh placards and some banners with NEXT MANAGER OUT written on to save on letters.

Depending on which side you stand for depends on what you do. On the one hand you pay your twenty quid and do as you say. Not being businessmen and women they think, okay its obvious that the fans aint happy so what shall we do, A) spend another 2 million on PR with another PR firm or B ) Sell up and be looked at as a failure but move on. To be honest I think they would go for A and waste another 2 million which would be better spent on the squad. if going for option B then maybe this is what the missing 10000 have been waiting for, maybe its time for them all to come back when Venkys have gone.
Unfortunately there are no buyers so whats the answer? I don't know but
you seem to be of the philosophy you train a dog by kicking it, come here boy, KICK, come here boy KICK, they may not know anything about football, whereas in your case you just know nothing about anything.
So they haven't attended for nigh on 12 months and the first time an opportunity to open dialogue with them is lost because you kicked them when they came, doesn't make sense to me.
you seem to say alot without actually saying anything but you always seem to end up insulting your fellow Rovers fans - I see you do it later as well - what a tool you are.

"Open dialogue with Venkys" - hahahaha - now who's in cloud cuckoo land - these people have NEVER conversed with ANYONE - even Paul Hunt complained they wouldnt speak with him and they had appointed him acting CEO of the club.

I do think some people made a fair point to vent our anger at Venkys BEFORE the game then get behind MA and the players, during the game.

But then again, I know nothing about anything so I've probably got that wrong as well.

Still, I'm sure you'll be their on Saturday and you'll do 100% the right thing and every other Rovers fan there (acording to you) will do everything 100% wrong because you're perfect and everyone else never knows anything nor are they allowed an opinion - what an insecure person you are.
Well thats your slant on it, but you do realise that everyone who doesn't want to protest and make the situation worse is being completely ignored by people like yourself, so you are in effect ruining it for me and others and taking away our opinions by riding over it like an over zelous rodeo cowboy, thanks for that. You've had loads of protests going on and where has it got you? I tell you where its got you, families are no longer attending as the language and vitriol shown by a moronic few has ruined what was once a family club with their boot boy bullying tactics up and down like a buch of skinheads from the seventies.

I'd like to request that anybody suggesting we protest inside the ground, at any time, does not bother attending at all. It's Appleton's first game in charge, we should be getting behind him and the team. Booing and chanting against the owners will just unsettle the players.

Personally, I think anybody chanting against Venky's are, effectively, p*ssing in the wind. Mrs Desai is far too stubborn to listen to the fans. However, I know this is a very rare opportunity for some people to vent their frustrations so, should they feel the necessity to do so, take Riverside 7's advice and do it outside the ground when they arrive.

Don't worry, be 'Appy!

It has got to a very sad state of affairs when fan is calling fan instead of uniting against the common enemy, the Venky's. Whilst I would agree that to protest during a game could be detrimental to the team there is no chance of the protesters staying silent. The team should really not be affected by any adverse chanting against the Venky's as they know it is not directed at them. In fact they should be encouraged to know that the fans regard the club as being so important to them that they are prepared to suffer the abuse from the media and other sources as to their actions.
If it means the club goes into adminsitration and ends up out of the leagues then so be it. The real supporters of the club could not care less what league they are in as long as the club is returned to its former reputation.

As we are stuck with them and there is zero chance of any other potential buyers coming along fans' passions should be aimed at getting the new regime off to a great start.

Those clowns on here who talk about grovelling apologies from our Indian owners need to get in touch with the real world.

It would be an immense shame in all senses of the word if Michael Appleton's first game in charge was overshadowed by futile insults aimed at the owners.

It would be an immense shame in all senses of the word if Michael Appleton's first game in charge was overshadowed by futile insults aimed at the owners.[/p][/quote]Could not agree more!

We must vent our displeasure at how they have mismanaged the club, ignored the customers of their business (the fans) and sold our best players for financial gain.

Vocal protests must be made BEFORE the game, and I suggest that this is done at the main entrance on Nuttall Street.

I do not believe we should protest duing the game and if we leave it until after the match we will probably discover that the Venkys will have left the ground on police advice.

So get down to Ewood early and protest.
Totally the wrong attitude! Should go to the game to SUPPORT THE TEAM, manager and club! Appleton does not need his first home game filled with negative chants

If it means the club goes into adminsitration and ends up out of the leagues then so be it. The real supporters of the club could not care less what league they are in as long as the club is returned to its former reputation.

I must say it is hard to imagine why Venkys haven't listened to those poor long-suffering Blackburn supporters that have :

Protested at every opportunity since they took charge.

Barracked a succession of managers.

Become a global laughing stock in the world of football.

Taken abusing their own club to a whole new level.

Taken to the internet and phone ins to abuse the owners and demand the removal of pretty much every single member of the boardroom/backroom staff.

Lets be honest here - should Venkys decide "What the ****, these guys have no respect for the millions of pounds we have invested" and decide to sell up - you will be heading through the door to administration faster than David Dunn at an all you can eat buffet.

Be careful what you wish for

Protesting has got us absolutely nowhere. I see these fan groups haven't flown over to Pune and trashed some Venkys Xprs restaurants or bricked the Venkys head office! Venkys would never take these protesters seriously. The best thing you can do is stay at home, keeping your cash in your pockets.

Call me a hypocrite attending every match, but I'm a supporter of this football club, not the owners.

Hi Hitchin Rover,

I will be there on Saturday supporting the team - unlike many people who regularly post on this LT site.

What I said is that any protest against the owners should take place BEFORE the game.

Are you happy with what our owners have done over the past 2 years?
Are you happy with the way the fans have been treated / ignored?
Are you happy with the sale of our best players?

I am sick and tired of my letters and emails to India, to Singh, to Agnew, to Shaw and even directly to the club - being ignored.
Nobody listens to the fans, nobody cares.

If you are unhapy with the Venkys this may be a one off opportunity to show the owners what the supporters feel.

I think the rows of empty seats should get the message across. But just to emphasise it, how about giving Venky’s both barrels for ONE minute when they take their seats at the start of the game and again at the start of the second half?

Then switch attention to the match and for the rest of the game support the team as never before and show these fools that we are 100% behind the players. That will clearly show them we support the team but not the regime.

That way we will gain far more credibility as fans and get a clear message across, but keep the two distinct elements separate.

I totally agree - whilst we want to spend the majority of the game supporting the new manager and players - fans SHOULD let these scum owners have some stick at some point, whether that be before the game or for the 1st min of each half

Also, those who say "Venkys are the only thing standing between us and administration" are only partly correct.

Yes, If Venkys walked out today then we would be in administration but if they continue to run the club as they have been doing then we will be in administration within the next 18 months anyway as the club cannot keep losing revenue whilst failing to cut its costs or increase its revenues - you don't need to be an accountant to work that out - £25m loss for the 2012-2013 trading year is simply unsustainable yet so far they have done almost NOTHING to stem those lossess nor have they put a penny into the club to nulify those lossess (despite what some people continually post on here - Givet82 !!!) - infact the amount of money they charge the club in expenses for them "gracing us with their presence" will take us approx 2 home league games revenue to pay for- UTTER MADNESS !

If it means the club goes into adminsitration and ends up out of the leagues then so be it. The real supporters of the club could not care less what league they are in as long as the club is returned to its former reputation.
You are a tool. If we go into Administration and drop out the leagues I'd be surprised if Rovers got back to League 1 within MY lifetime and I'm only 22! How can administration and virtually demolishment of the club be seen as a positive to having Venky's in charge? Are you really that much of a moron? How the hell do you fund Ewood Park if the club no longer exists, without a big enough team in which to play in it what would become of the stadium? It would have to be purchased by and maintained by the fans which would leave the club forever in debt and virtually sunk. Or it would be demolished and turned into council houses or a shopping centre. Anybody who see's Venky's leaving and administration being a positive thing is quite frankly an idiot.

We hate them, but that is really NOT an option. If you want Venky's so bugger off do and find a buyer! Oh wait a minute, nobody wanted us when we were relatively successful in the PL. Whose going to come for us now in the CL with some of you so-called "Fans" threatening "action" (BRAG really are run by morons - notice they took the statement down anyone?) because of a manager appointment which compared to some of the other candidates is one of the better options. Get some perspective! If they go, we're screwed, if they stay and we constantly "Someone Out" we drop down the league again, if we stay and voice our support for the team inside the ground and protest outside before or after the game we show the owners and footballing community that we ARE there for the team and we ARE there against the owners. Boycotting has so far served no purpose but to alienate fans from each other and make the stadium a ghost town with virtually zero impact on the owners.

It's futile what you're saying. The supporters can support all we want but whilst Venkys are dragging us down all the time we'll get absolutely nowhere.

Look at the vocal support we gave the TEAM last season, The fans couldn't have given any more but we were still relegated because of Venkys.

We can shout our Boolocks off for the team but we'll still get nowhere until the lunes get their act together.

Don't blame the supporters.

An alcoholic must reach rock bottom before they realise that the only answer for them is abstinence.

Our rock bottom will be administration.

Only then will the long, hard journey to recovery begin.

The only variable before rock bottom will be the slow car crash that is venky's
ownership of Rovers. .

Maybe, just maybe, a miracle will happen and venky's will learn from their record of chronic ineptitude and employ those that can run the club in a professional way and leave them free from interference by the loons from Pune but I am certainly not holding my breath.

They certainly have their failings but have you ever stopped and thought where we would have been under the Walker Trust....I think administration would have already happened, the money for transfers had dried up some time previous.

I do not believe we should protest duing the game and if we leave it until after the match we will probably discover that the Venkys will have left the ground on police advice.

So get down to Ewood early and protest.
Totally the wrong attitude! Should go to the game to SUPPORT THE TEAM, manager and club! Appleton does not need his first home game filled with negative chants
Hi Hitchin Rover,

I will be there on Saturday supporting the team - unlike many people who regularly post on this LT site.

What I said is that any protest against the owners should take place BEFORE the game.

Are you happy with what our owners have done over the past 2 years?
Are you happy with the way the fans have been treated / ignored?
Are you happy with the sale of our best players?

I am sick and tired of my letters and emails to India, to Singh, to Agnew, to Shaw and even directly to the club - being ignored.
Nobody listens to the fans, nobody cares.

If you are unhapy with the Venkys this may be a one off opportunity to show the owners what the supporters feel.
" I am sick and tired of my letters and emails to India, to Singh, to Agnew, to Shaw and even directly to the club - being ignored.

Hi Riverside 7.....I agree and that is why there are so many EMPTY seats.
Decent, respectable people / supporters will not be treat like that.
Funny that i was offered a informal meeting with Shebby only10 days ago , but i turned him down only to be offered another date. Just keep e mailing him.

If you are not upfront and honest on this visit you will never be welcomed at the club again not to mention the barracking you will take this weekend.

If things had continued under Walkers Trust we would probably be still mid-table Premiership, and looking forward to the larger TV payments. WT would not have put the club into adminstration,the Phil Jones money would have maintained the status quo financially, and our young lads would have learnt the game alongside experienced professionals like Ryan Nelson. We'd probably only have the 'hoofball' to moan about.

Its a pity that WT were desperate to sell to anyone with the cash, rather than being prepared to wait for the right people to come along, like Bill Kenwright at Everton has done for many years.

Can't believe that people think that Venkys still need to be told that they are unpopular and need to make better decisions. Some people are unbelievably stupid, they must realise that without Venkys there is no BRFC.

All the demonstrations, all the insults have done nothing to help Rovers situation. Somehow bridges have to be built between the Venkys and the fans or there will be no BRFC.

Good showing of posters who simply want to support the team and Appleton for his first game in charge. Cheer him on to a good start and it could be a good second half to the season - an astute signing and Best to feature, could be very good. Just ignore the fact Venky's might be there - I suspect they probably won't attend in the end anyway.

Taken to the internet and phone ins to abuse the owners and demand the removal of pretty much every single member of the boardroom/backroom staff.

Lets be honest here - should Venkys decide "What the ****, these guys have no respect for the millions of pounds we have invested" and decide to sell up - you will be heading through the door to administration faster than David Dunn at an all you can eat buffet.

Nobody is interested in your opinion. I'm sure others are like me in that after reading the first few words and seeing your name I stop reading. You claim to be a Burnley fan though that's seriously doubtful given the balance of your discussion is heavily weighted towards rovers. Either way your view is not valid.

So get down to Ewood early and protest.
Totally the wrong attitude! Should go to the game to SUPPORT THE TEAM, manager and club! Appleton does not need his first home game filled with negative chants
Hi Hitchin Rover,

I will be there on Saturday supporting the team - unlike many people who regularly post on this LT site.

What I said is that any protest against the owners should take place BEFORE the game.

Are you happy with what our owners have done over the past 2 years?
Are you happy with the way the fans have been treated / ignored?
Are you happy with the sale of our best players?

I am sick and tired of my letters and emails to India, to Singh, to Agnew, to Shaw and even directly to the club - being ignored.
Nobody listens to the fans, nobody cares.

If you are unhapy with the Venkys this may be a one off opportunity to show the owners what the supporters feel.
" I am sick and tired of my letters and emails to India, to Singh, to Agnew, to Shaw and even directly to the club - being ignored.

Hi Riverside 7.....I agree and that is why there are so many EMPTY seats.
Decent, respectable people / supporters will not be treat like that.
Funny that i was offered a informal meeting with Shebby only10 days ago , but i turned him down only to be offered another date. Just keep e mailing him.
If you have Shebby's current e-mail address please let me have it.
Apparently he has changed it several times.

However, I suspect that he won't be around for much longer.

I totally agree - whilst we want to spend the majority of the game supporting the new manager and players - fans SHOULD let these scum owners have some stick at some point, whether that be before the game or for the 1st min of each half Also, those who say "Venkys are the only thing standing between us and administration" are only partly correct. Yes, If Venkys walked out today then we would be in administration but if they continue to run the club as they have been doing then we will be in administration within the next 18 months anyway as the club cannot keep losing revenue whilst failing to cut its costs or increase its revenues - you don't need to be an accountant to work that out - £25m loss for the 2012-2013 trading year is simply unsustainable yet so far they have done almost NOTHING to stem those lossess nor have they put a penny into the club to nulify those lossess (despite what some people continually post on here - Givet82 !!!) - infact the amount of money they charge the club in expenses for them "gracing us with their presence" will take us approx 2 home league games revenue to pay for- UTTER MADNESS !
It constantly amazes me how people are allowed to post such cr&p on here in an attempt to whip up anti-club sentiment.

It's about time that the LT took action as publication of such unsupported facts leaves them liable as with the Anderson saga
Unsupported cr@p ??? - we have just had our accounts published.

1 - Mrs D HERSELF writes in those accounts - "going forwards we do have have enough revenue streams to cover our outgoings" - it is there in black and white signed off by Mrs D herself !!!

2 - Those accounts also state that player wages accounted for 92.2% of TOTAL TURNOVER.

3 - Debt was £20m.

4 - Trading loss for the year was £18m.

Did I make all those 4 statements up ?????????????? - NO !!!

They are clearly written in our accounts !!!

Get your head out of the sand - do you think our financial situation is good ????

Since those accounts were published our revenue has massively decreased whilst our outgoings have only reduced marginally.

Why do you find the truth so offensive - arnt you MAN ENOUGH to accept that the clubs accounts are a massive mess ??

Grow some BALLS and face reality !!!

And if you or anyone else wants to sue me for any of those statements then go ahead.

Whatever one thinks of Venkys and not very much would be my opinion based on what they have achieved - the question is what or who is the alternative - I do not see a knight in shining army riding into Ewood to buy the club do you

What is important on Saturday is the team is supported and we get the first win of 4 home games to start the climb up the table.

I couldnt care less who owns the club as long as it is run properly and the 11 on the pitch are successful

If only it were the lowest point! But I believe we will fall a lot lower before something is done. We've had new managers, new players, fresh starts over the two years with only catastrophe following.

Not that my plea will make a bit of difference, but...can't we have an end to this, "If you are a real supporter, you'll turn up" "No, if you're a real supporter you'll stay away". You should have left that behind when you went to secondary school.
For each to protest in his/her own way.
I presume Venkys are travelling first class curtesy of Rovers' rapidly dimishing petty cash account.
Last time Ms Desai turned up it was to give Williams his P45 - hopefully she's bringing Shabby's.
Of course, the only viable solution is for Venkys to sell out, bankruptcy would be a disaster. Frankly, it doens't matter whether the fans boo or clap her, the decision will be made the accountant in Pune. Whatever happens will get a PR gloss - the fans were so awful, she's pulling out, the fans were lovely, she's staying.The only decent thing is for Venkys to sell up in a way that includes the fans - Swansea are a good example of a club 20% owned by the fans.

Yesterday they employed a PR firm - WHY ??? - they don't need to hire such a firm - a PR firms job is, basically, to "polish the turd" - if Venkys want to look better in the eyes of Rovers fans, sponsers and the football world in general then its quite simple -

Don't employ a turd polisher ! - just start doing things in a CORRECT fashion - show some humility - appologise for the shambles you've caused - put some CASH into the club and sack those morons Agnew, Shaw and Singh and emply a proper football CEO who has the power to put in his own staff and make proper footballing decisions without having to refer back to some woman sat in an ivory tower in the @rse end of India and who knows NOTHING about fooball !!!
Depending on which side you stand for depends on what you do. On the one hand you pay your twenty quid and do as you say. Not being businessmen and women they think, okay its obvious that the fans aint happy so what shall we do, A) spend another 2 million on PR with another PR firm or B ) Sell up and be looked at as a failure but move on. To be honest I think they would go for A and waste another 2 million which would be better spent on the squad. if going for option B then maybe this is what the missing 10000 have been waiting for, maybe its time for them all to come back when Venkys have gone.
Unfortunately there are no buyers so whats the answer? I don't know but
you seem to be of the philosophy you train a dog by kicking it, come here boy, KICK, come here boy KICK, they may not know anything about football, whereas in your case you just know nothing about anything.
So they haven't attended for nigh on 12 months and the first time an opportunity to open dialogue with them is lost because you kicked them when they came, doesn't make sense to me.

We all know that Venkys bought something that they knew nothing about, and were possibly advised by people with self serving motives. This lead to two years of unbelievably bad management decisions. It is also possible that the way they conduct things in India may be quite different than what we do here, and that they have a different mindset.
These numbers are approximate, but they bought a business worth, say, 25 million, and in two years under their management it is now worth 10 million at best, and has become almost impossible to sell. So in reality, if you cannot sell a business it becomes worthless unless it is making a profit, and we are far from that.
Billionaires interested in football can afford to subsidise their interest. Jack Walker was wealthy enough to fund his team but the Venkys have demonstrated little interest in the sport in England. They are wealthy but not Billionaires. Abramovitch seems to be at every Chelsea match. This will be Mrs Desai's second appearance in two years.
Venkys have a tiger by the tail. They may not know how to correct the situation or to extricate themselves from it. It seems that there are only three possibilities. One - pump in millions and reorganise to get back in the Premiership where all the big money is, or Two - Let the club descend to a level where it will be financially self supporting.with gates of around 12'000, or Three - let the club just slide into administration and claim the loss as a tax writeoff.
Make your own mind up as to which course they will choose. It would certainly help us supporters if Venkys would speak to us and give us their real plans for the future rather than hiring a PR firm. PR has a bad connotation to most people. They are noted more for spin rather than truth.
Highly coincidental that one week after hiring a PR company, Mrs Desai pays an infrequent visit.

What a fantastic excuse for the boo boys to return to Ewood and create their own inimitable and special atmosphere during the game.

Don't get me wrong it's about time Venky's turned up and were finally made to understand the disaster they have created.

But we have a new manager on show on Saturday, a nervous team and a generally apathetic fan base , and we need to follow up on recent successes and win this game.

We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please.

Because if the boo boys kick off, just like Chelsea, Bolton, West Brom last season, the only winners will be Charlton.

Most people agree on here that they don't like what the owners have done to the club. The owners are not for changing.
In two years they have held onto a drowning manager for ages inevitably taking the club down.
Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers.
Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience.

The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.

If fans really wanted to get the message across I suggest waiting outside the main entrance to welcome them to Blackburn and then half hour before kick off head inside and chant some more. But when it comes to kick off I will give Appleton and the boys 110% backing as being negative during the 90 won't help the 11 on the pitch.that should be the way to get our point across

Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers.
Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience.

The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.
Who is suggesting being "nice" to Venky's you clown?

I think you need to read what I said again.

And I quote "by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win,."

I want 3 points on Saturday, nothing more, nothing less and demonstrations during the games last season cost us at least 11 points.

I want Venky's to either sort things out or go, just like everyone else does, but you have been hurling abuse at them for two years, where the feck has that got us?

Absolutely bloody nowhere.

But we have a new manager on show on Saturday, a nervous team and a generally apathetic fan base , and we need to follow up on recent successes and win this game. We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please.

You don't sound very proud of your home Modan. Still, it shouldn't be a problem for people on a short visit from the 3rd world, just put a rug down, call for a take-away, and ask all your family to go out for the day.

It's just a shame Britain doesn't have India's levels of poverty, malnutrition, and sex-specific infanticide to make them feel really at home.

It is also possible that the way they conduct things in India may be quite different than what we do here, and that they have a different mindset.
These numbers are approximate, but they bought a business worth, say, 25 million, and in two years under their management it is now worth 10 million at best, and has become almost impossible to sell. So in reality, if you cannot sell a business it becomes worthless unless it is making a profit, and we are far from that.
Billionaires interested in football can afford to subsidise their interest. Jack Walker was wealthy enough to fund his team but the Venkys have demonstrated little interest in the sport in England. They are wealthy but not Billionaires. Abramovitch seems to be at every Chelsea match. This will be Mrs Desai's second appearance in two years.
Venkys have a tiger by the tail. They may not know how to correct the situation or to extricate themselves from it. It seems that there are only three possibilities. One - pump in millions and reorganise to get back in the Premiership where all the big money is, or Two - Let the club descend to a level where it will be financially self supporting.with gates of around 12'000, or Three - let the club just slide into administration and claim the loss as a tax writeoff.
Make your own mind up as to which course they will choose. It would certainly help us supporters if Venkys would speak to us and give us their real plans for the future rather than hiring a PR firm. PR has a bad connotation to most people. They are noted more for spin rather than truth.
Highly coincidental that one week after hiring a PR company, Mrs Desai pays an infrequent visit.
It's impossible to know what they'll do.

We all know they got themselves involved something they didn't have the first clue about. That leach Anderson and the likes saw them coming a mile off.

The fact they have absolutely no idea about Rovers or football in general suggests to me they'd sell if the right offer came in.

Their estimated wealth is about £650 million but I doubt they would even consider pumping any of that into the club given the last two horror years because it is clear they are the absolute opposite type of owner than Jack and have have the exact opposite agenda of Jack. They wanted Venkys name to be big in the western world through the advertising monster that is the Premier League but through a string of catastrophic decisions they have actually made their company an absolute joke. If however we get promoted (and that's a monumental IF) they'd no doubt hold onto BRFC because of the huge financial rewards.

I still don't think they 'get it' though. I don't think they will ever quite understand what Rovers means to the fans and the carnage, divide and fallout they have caused.

All that tosh when they first came in about Ronaldinho et al set alarm bells ringing but they were just to naive to realise Rovers fans would see right through that bull5h1t. Did madame honestly think Ronaldinho would sign? Had she ever heard of him? Even rhino skin Kean appeared mildly embarrassed at the mention of Champions League.

They are brave people in my opinion coming to Ewood because if things go pear shaped early doors against Charlton, the atmosphere will turn poison and no doubt they'll abandon ship. Maybe that's what they need? Maybe they need to witness first hand what havoc they've caused and how despised they are to make them say either enough is enough, or we're going to back the manager with serious funds and mount some sort of promotion charge

venky,s to you and me have a value of one billion dollars
of which £ 650m is in the football club
so it,s highly unlikely venkys will let that happen
put the club up for sale yes but administration. no

What a fantastic excuse for the boo boys to return to Ewood and create their own inimitable and special atmosphere during the game.

Don't get me wrong it's about time Venky's turned up and were finally made to understand the disaster they have created.

But we have a new manager on show on Saturday, a nervous team and a generally apathetic fan base , and we need to follow up on recent successes and win this game.

We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please.

Because if the boo boys kick off, just like Chelsea, Bolton, West Brom last season, the only winners will be Charlton.
Can someone please tell me what you hope to achieve by being nice to Mrs Dseai, when most people don't like what she has caused?

Most people agree on here that they don't like what the owners have done to the club. The owners are not for changing.
In two years they have held onto a drowning manager for ages inevitably taking the club down.
Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers.
Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience.

The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.
Who is suggesting being "nice" to Venky's you clown?

I think you need to read what I said again.

And I quote "by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win,."

I want 3 points on Saturday, nothing more, nothing less and demonstrations during the games last season cost us at least 11 points.

I want Venky's to either sort things out or go, just like everyone else does, but you have been hurling abuse at them for two years, where the feck has that got us?

Absolutely bloody nowhere.
Less of the clown, I haven't joined the circus.
Why is it that when another opinion is brought forward you have to insult?

You want Venks to sort things, like they have been sorting things already?
Now look who's the clown.

If the outcome is Venks can't handle the club which means they have to let go, better they let go whilst there is still something to build on than for them to keep making massive mistakes, then selling some asset to make up for it.whilst everybody sits on their hands and watches.

It would be an immense shame in all senses of the word if Michael Appleton's first game in charge was overshadowed by futile insults aimed at the owners.
I agree with that comment. As it stands with the losses the club is making at the moment Venkys are all that is standing between us and administration. I would agree that they have caused the current problems but I think our efforts would be better put to getting behind the team and help them get 3 points on Saturday. Just my view although I do understand that feelings are running high and many will want to let them have both barrels and I wouldn't condem anyone who wanted to do this. Can't say they don't deserve any abuse they get.
THEY DID NOT CREATE THE PROBLEM.. ONLY REALISED IT AFTER THEY BOUGHT IT.. THE GREAT THING IS THEY HAVNT RUN AWAY LIKE OTHER OWNERS HAVE..

You would think the Venky,s still have long-term intensions...why would they have kept searching for the "right" Manager and taken on this PR company !!!!!

There is always the danger that a PR company could isolate the fans even further, YET on the positive side (they are have any bottle at all...) they could open up the club to the fans opinions and common-sense, which has been lacking since day one...... PLUS the fact there were too many "bleeders" onboard with self interest over the two years.

True fans need to focus though on the TEAM SUPPORT and give this new Manager/Coach a reasonable period to show their true colours and whether they can turn it around in the 2nd half of the season.

GET BEHIND YOUR TEAM AND BE HEARD ENCOURAGING THE TEAM.....IT COULD BE THE TURNING POINT AND LAST CHANCE OF SUCCESS THIS SEASON.

Depending on which side you stand for depends on what you do. On the one hand you pay your twenty quid and do as you say. Not being businessmen and women they think, okay its obvious that the fans aint happy so what shall we do, A) spend another 2 million on PR with another PR firm or B ) Sell up and be looked at as a failure but move on. To be honest I think they would go for A and waste another 2 million which would be better spent on the squad. if going for option B then maybe this is what the missing 10000 have been waiting for, maybe its time for them all to come back when Venkys have gone.
Unfortunately there are no buyers so whats the answer? I don't know but
you seem to be of the philosophy you train a dog by kicking it, come here boy, KICK, come here boy KICK, they may not know anything about football, whereas in your case you just know nothing about anything.
So they haven't attended for nigh on 12 months and the first time an opportunity to open dialogue with them is lost because you kicked them when they came, doesn't make sense to me.
you seem to say alot without actually saying anything but you always seem to end up insulting your fellow Rovers fans - I see you do it later as well - what a tool you are.

"Open dialogue with Venkys" - hahahaha - now who's in cloud cuckoo land - these people have NEVER conversed with ANYONE - even Paul Hunt complained they wouldnt speak with him and they had appointed him acting CEO of the club.

I do think some people made a fair point to vent our anger at Venkys BEFORE the game then get behind MA and the players, during the game.

But then again, I know nothing about anything so I've probably got that wrong as well.

Still, I'm sure you'll be their on Saturday and you'll do 100% the right thing and every other Rovers fan there (acording to you) will do everything 100% wrong because you're perfect and everyone else never knows anything nor are they allowed an opinion - what an insecure person you are.
Well thats your slant on it, but you do realise that everyone who doesn't want to protest and make the situation worse is being completely ignored by people like yourself, so you are in effect ruining it for me and others and taking away our opinions by riding over it like an over zelous rodeo cowboy, thanks for that. You've had loads of protests going on and where has it got you? I tell you where its got you, families are no longer attending as the language and vitriol shown by a moronic few has ruined what was once a family club with their boot boy bullying tactics up and down like a buch of skinheads from the seventies.
I want no part of your moronic bootboy tactics, you lunatic.

They own the stadium - how do you propose to ban them from their own place? I think they are absolutely crazy for coming across and it sounds like they have been advised badly again as someone must have said it would be a good idea to put in an appearance at Appleton's first game in charge on Saturday.

It will ruin his first game in charge - as it will probably cause us to lose the game and the three points which are so so vital to us now.

I am sure they do not expect anything else but barracking - so I think there must be another reason they are coming. Perhaps the public humiliation of Singh, Agnew and Shaw on the pitch before the game starts.

Each one bent over, kicked up the bum by Madame Desai and then have their Gold Amex cards cut up before their eyes. Oh yes and they will also get very publicly sacked! Now that would be entertaining!

This is about Venkys being rubbish at running a football club. Not just rubbish, absolutely appalling, horrifying, shocking, disgusting, upsetting, sickening, outrageous, scandalous, distressing
awful, terrible, dreadful, horrendous, inexcusable, unspeakable, atrocious, abysmal.

What bit of that doesn't register with you? What part of that can't you seem to grasp?

Now if you think India is so amazing, why don't you pack your bags and go and live there?

Maybe you can throw rose petals at the feet of madame b0llocks herself on Saturday? Maybe you could lay the red carpet for your heros Venkys? If you do, I'll give it 5 minutes before someone has purposely stood in dog 5h1t so they can wipe it off their shoe onto the carpet.

Your getting all confused again with facts and figures aswell. Let me be a bit more realistc for you Mr India. You won't see 10,000 chanting Venkys out either or 15,000 greeting Venkys because there will be no where near 25,000. There only be about 14,000 in the ground of which 13,500 will be Rovers fans and 500 Charlton (if that). Of the 13,500 Rovers fans, 13,499 want Venkys out. 1 (that's you) will greet them like some heros. So who cares what your warped head believes? Understand this - Venkys are hated. Fact.

I think its worth repeating the strategy many have said could unite Rovers fans for this match.

Show your feelings for the owners outside the ground before the game.

Then show your feelings for the club and the team, by supporting BRFC inside the ground for 90 minutes.

Gives everybody the ability to behave in the manner they feel most appropriate, (I suspect many want to do both) without creating more divisions within the crowd or giving the media excuses to call us disloyal to our club.

It would be an immense shame in all senses of the word if Michael Appleton's first game in charge was overshadowed by futile insults aimed at the owners.
I agree with that comment. As it stands with the losses the club is making at the moment Venkys are all that is standing between us and administration. I would agree that they have caused the current problems but I think our efforts would be better put to getting behind the team and help them get 3 points on Saturday. Just my view although I do understand that feelings are running high and many will want to let them have both barrels and I wouldn't condem anyone who wanted to do this. Can't say they don't deserve any abuse they get.
THEY DID NOT CREATE THE PROBLEM.. ONLY REALISED IT AFTER THEY BOUGHT IT.. THE GREAT THING IS THEY HAVNT RUN AWAY LIKE OTHER OWNERS HAVE..
ANY OF THOSE WHO WANT THEM OUT PLEASE ANSWER 3 SIMPLE QUESTIPONS????
1 WHO HAS THE CLUB RECORD PURCHASE FOR A PLAYER??
2 WHO HAS THE CHEAPEST TICKETS IN OUR DIVISION??
3 WHO HAS THE MOST INTERNATIONALS ON THEIR BOOKS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP??
THESE ARE FACTS!! FACTS !! NOT MEDIA FANTASY
Wow -

Most internationals in a squad - does that mean we deserve to be above Cardiff ? Does that mean we should have an extra 30 points ?

Also facts -

1 - we now have a wage to turnover of over 100% - highest in the division - arent you proud of being top of that league ??

2 - Losing most money in the Championshiop - arnt you proud of that one ?

I prefer the one you usually quote -

Highest wage bill in the division - LIKE THATS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF !!

If you don't understand that the club is in one God of a holy mess then there is something seriously wrong with you.

1 - Our upper management HATE each other and never stop infighting.
2 - We don't have a proper off field structure.
3 - we are losing £25m this year.
4 - Our fans are deserting the club in droves.
5 - As our the sponsers.
6 - On Saturday we will have our 5th manager of the season.

Apart from that - you are right - Venkys are bloody brilliant !!! (25,000 other Rovers fans just don't appreciate it !!).

Also facts - 1 - we now have a wage to turnover of over 100% - highest in the division - arent you proud of being top of that league ?? 2 - Losing most money in the Championshiop - arnt you proud of that one ? I prefer the one you usually quote - Highest wage bill in the division - LIKE THATS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF !! If you don't understand that the club is in one God of a holy mess then there is something seriously wrong with you. 1 - Our upper management HATE each other and never stop infighting. 2 - We don't have a proper off field structure. 3 - we are losing £25m this year. 4 - Our fans are deserting the club in droves. 5 - As our the sponsers. 6 - On Saturday we will have our 5th manager of the season. Apart from that - you are right - Venkys are bloody brilliant !!! (25,000 other Rovers fans just don't appreciate it !!). J.C - Rishton

I hate the venkys too, but so many on here just can't see beyond the end of their c o c k s!
It's not going to be nice on Saturday Blue Skies but everyone pays their money and are entitled to voice their opinion however they see fit.
Personally I'm not going and that is my protest

Although I agree that we should get behind MA and the lads for the 90 mins your arguament about not giving any grief to Venkys and losing dosent really hold up.

Yes we've protested and lost games but recently at the Barnsley away game the 1250 away fans sang virtually solid anti Shebby Singh and anti Venky songs for the full 90 mins - and that produced some of the best Rovers football for quite awhile.

Not only that but EVERY Rovers player came over to the away end after the game and seemed to agree/revel in the anti Singh chanting

The players clearly understood that we were 100% with them and 100% against Venkys and Singh - and they seemed happy enough with that.

So, its too simplistic to say when you protest we lose and when we don't sing anti-Venky songs we win.

Show your feelings for the owners outside the ground before the game.

Then show your feelings for the club and the team, by supporting BRFC inside the ground for 90 minutes.

Gives everybody the ability to behave in the manner they feel most appropriate, (I suspect many want to do both) without creating more divisions within the crowd or giving the media excuses to call us disloyal to our club.
I agree with you greenscreener, I just know if things start to go t1ts up and we concede early doors feelings will turn nasty. Ewoods been such an edgy place these last couple of years, add to that the cause of all the carnage are going to be sat in the ground and it makes for a potential poison atmosphere.

That said, if we show positive early signs, create some good early chances and maybe score an early goal, the focus will be taken away from those w4nkers and the atmosphere might just be a positive one. It's a bit of a catch 22 really. Of course we want the lads to play well, create a positive healthy feeling in the ground and take 3 points but we don't want madame b0llocks and her cronies to think all is well or be manipulated by Shebby Shertting and his lip service trash talk. We want them to know they are responsible for ripping the heart and soul out of our football club.

I suppose the best result would be to destroy Charlton 5-0 with 20 mins to go and then chant Venkys out for the rest of the game! That'd confuse the f*ck out of em!
Actually, if we 5-0 up that'd confuse the f*ck out of me aswell!

Neither I.

"Traitors" I think is what the protest lobby of absentees call us. Of course, its the right thing to do if all you dream of is fan ownership, even if it means slipping into administration and the lower leagues to achieve it.

Meanwhile the "traitors" that we are will continue to support the new manager and team.

How despicable are we huh?

I agree with that comment. As it stands with the losses the club is making at the moment Venkys are all that is standing between us and administration. I would agree that they have caused the current problems but I think our efforts would be better put to getting behind the team and help them get 3 points on Saturday. Just my view although I do understand that feelings are running high and many will want to let them have both barrels and I wouldn't condem anyone who wanted to do this. Can't say they don't deserve any abuse they get.
THEY DID NOT CREATE THE PROBLEM.. ONLY REALISED IT AFTER THEY BOUGHT IT.. THE GREAT THING IS THEY HAVNT RUN AWAY LIKE OTHER OWNERS HAVE..

THESE ARE FACTS!! FACTS !! NOT MEDIA FANTASY
"They did not create the problem" - what planet do you live on ????

1 - They sacked SA and replaced him with a complete and utter moron and then refused to sack that moron waaaaaay after his sell by date, hence creating an utter toxic atmosphere, creating fans to leave the club in their 1000's, many who will never return and our corporate sponsorship has droped almost 90% since they took-over the club.

2 - They got rid of wonderfull people like John Williams, Tom Finn etc and replaced them with the likes of Agnew and Singh.

3 - They allowed Jerome Anderson to run our transfers - leaving him to rake off around £3.5m in fees and wasting millions on (£2m Petrovic, £2.5m Goodwillie, £6m Dann, £3.5m Formica etc etc).

4- Inevitable relegation followed after 11 solid years in the Premiership.

But of course you are right - Non of it is Venkys fault - its all those nasty fans who complained about all those things who are to blame.

You really are the ultimate MUG PUNTER who refuses to see what is infront of his face - the entire world can see Venkys are a walking disaster area except you - don't you think that probably means you are wrong (er 20 billion who think Venkys are morons and 1, you, who think they have been wonderfull,mis-under

Protest? Venky's out?

Unfortunately the Venky's are the only thing standing between BRFC and almost certain administration. You should be welcoming them with open arms.

VENKY'S IN!
Unfortunately FT, Dingles aren't the only ones creaming themselves hoping Rovers go into administration. Plenty of no hope glory seekers hoping to be the next Shebby in a fan owned fantasy football scenario, where one gets to walk around town brimming with pride with their "Shareholder" status, newly acquired from yesterday's giro as they drunkenly stumble around announcing repeatedly, to anyone who cares to listen, that they are indeed on their way to the AGM. Very Impotent Pillox that they are.

You can almost picture it in their heads..

Outside the ground protests, inside the ground anti-Venky's chanting. Guaranteed loss, Point proven about Appleton's inexperienced appointment being a mistake.

Job done. Back home to gloat on your "I told you so" foresight on every available Rovers forum and drum up more disenchantment and division with any fans who don't agree, whilst continuously blaming Venky's and looking for more inventive ways of pronouncing their names and hurling more "indian" riddled insults (because 1bn people are obviously to blame for Venky's).

More failed results.. More disenchantment and frustration of players.. Looking desperate now.. Only a few more shoves needed to send the whole melting pot over the edge.. Throw a few more Shaw/Agnew/SEM conspiracies online to create more doubt..

Finally Put a few bob on the bookies as you smugly watch the club sink into administration, patting yourself on the back that the club will come out stronger for it and we will restore Jack's legacy under the newly formed fan owned club.

Plenty of no hope glory seekers hoping to be the next Shebby in a fan owned fantasy football scenario, where one gets to walk around town brimming with pride with their "Shareholder" status, newly acquired from yesterday's giro as they drunkenly stumble around announcing repeatedly, to anyone who cares to listen, that they are indeed on their way to the AGM. Very Impotent Pillox that they are. You can almost picture it in their heads.. Outside the ground protests, inside the ground anti-Venky's chanting. Guaranteed loss, Point proven about Appleton's inexperienced appointment being a mistake. Job done. Back home to gloat on your "I told you so" foresight on every available Rovers forum and drum up more disenchantment and division with any fans who don't agree, whilst continuously blaming Venky's and looking for more inventive ways of pronouncing their names and hurling more "indian" riddled insults (because 1bn people are obviously to blame for Venky's). More failed results.. More disenchantment and frustration of players.. Looking desperate now.. Only a few more shoves needed to send the whole melting pot over the edge.. Throw a few more Shaw/Agnew/SEM conspiracies online to create more doubt.. Finally Put a few bob on the bookies as you smugly watch the club sink into administration, patting yourself on the back that the club will come out stronger for it and we will restore Jack's legacy under the newly formed fan owned club.

Is Eckersley playing? says...

I don't believe it is coincidence that the shysters are visiting on the day the new manager is introduced to the crowd. It is a cynical ploy by the new spin doctors who are hoping attention is deflected from the shysters appearance to Appleton. Will it work? I think not, but it will be interesting to see if the toss-pots sit down as the manager waves to the fans - I will decline to call it a crowd due to the Trade Descriptions Act..

Neither I.

"Traitors" I think is what the protest lobby of absentees call us. Of course, its the right thing to do if all you dream of is fan ownership, even if it means slipping into administration and the lower leagues to achieve it.

Meanwhile the "traitors" that we are will continue to support the new manager and team.

How despicable are we huh?
We're gearing up again for EXCUSE THURSDAY.
Every Thursday before a home match,i come on here and look for the most inventive/honourable excuse for not going to the match on Saturday.

If just ONE would have the balls to come on and say that they're not going because we're sh1te and not in the Prem,i'd applaud him sincerely.

What a fantastic excuse for the boo boys to return to Ewood and create their own inimitable and special atmosphere during the game.

Don't get me wrong it's about time Venky's turned up and were finally made to understand the disaster they have created.

But we have a new manager on show on Saturday, a nervous team and a generally apathetic fan base , and we need to follow up on recent successes and win this game.

We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please.

Because if the boo boys kick off, just like Chelsea, Bolton, West Brom last season, the only winners will be Charlton.
Can someone please tell me what you hope to achieve by being nice to Mrs Dseai, when most people don't like what she has caused?

Most people agree on here that they don't like what the owners have done to the club. The owners are not for changing.
In two years they have held onto a drowning manager for ages inevitably taking the club down.
Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers.
Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience.

The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.
Who is suggesting being "nice" to Venky's you clown?

I think you need to read what I said again.

And I quote "by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win,."

I want 3 points on Saturday, nothing more, nothing less and demonstrations during the games last season cost us at least 11 points.

I want Venky's to either sort things out or go, just like everyone else does, but you have been hurling abuse at them for two years, where the feck has that got us?

Absolutely bloody nowhere.
Less of the clown, I haven't joined the circus.
Why is it that when another opinion is brought forward you have to insult?

You want Venks to sort things, like they have been sorting things already?
Now look who's the clown.

If the outcome is Venks can't handle the club which means they have to let go, better they let go whilst there is still something to build on than for them to keep making massive mistakes, then selling some asset to make up for it.whilst everybody sits on their hands and watches.
So you can dish out insults but not take them? LOL LOL LOL. Even little, tiny ones, bloody hell I don't even think your average Burnley fan would have fallen for that one. LOL.

If you and the rest of the boo boys actually bother to turn up it won't be to support Rovers it will be to vent your spleen at Venky's.

I seem to remember the last time that happened they disappeared for several months and left Kean running everything.

The £850 million or so that someone else quoted earlier is chicken feed to Venky's, the main part of their portfolio covering pharmaceutics world wide is actually closer to £9 billion when you take into account the assets.

£25 million or £10 million for Rovers in that context? not even pocket money.

These are not stupid people, it is quite possible they have realised their mistakes and are trying to put things right.

But putting myself in their position on Saturday, remembering what happened last time they were here, I would seriously consider pulling the plug if there was a repeat.

Simple question, if someone was continually screaming abuse at you would you;

a - do what they want
b - scream abuse back
c - tell them to get stuffed and walk away.

They won't do a-, they can't do b-, that only leaves c-.

And you really, really think BRAG and BRSIT are in any position or even remotely capable of picking up the pieces?

Show your feelings for the owners outside the ground before the game.

Then show your feelings for the club and the team, by supporting BRFC inside the ground for 90 minutes.

Gives everybody the ability to behave in the manner they feel most appropriate, (I suspect many want to do both) without creating more divisions within the crowd or giving the media excuses to call us disloyal to our club.
I agree with you greenscreener, I just know if things start to go t1ts up and we concede early doors feelings will turn nasty. Ewoods been such an edgy place these last couple of years, add to that the cause of all the carnage are going to be sat in the ground and it makes for a potential poison atmosphere.

That said, if we show positive early signs, create some good early chances and maybe score an early goal, the focus will be taken away from those w4nkers and the atmosphere might just be a positive one. It's a bit of a catch 22 really. Of course we want the lads to play well, create a positive healthy feeling in the ground and take 3 points but we don't want madame b0llocks and her cronies to think all is well or be manipulated by Shebby Shertting and his lip service trash talk. We want them to know they are responsible for ripping the heart and soul out of our football club.

I suppose the best result would be to destroy Charlton 5-0 with 20 mins to go and then chant Venkys out for the rest of the game! That'd confuse the f*ck out of em!
Actually, if we 5-0 up that'd confuse the f*ck out of me aswell!
Frankly, me too.

The problem is I actually still give a 5hit about Blackburn Rovers. I relate to those who say stay away, as I relate to those who say back the team. We all stood under the concrete together on the old Blckburn End and i can't believe these ignorant, arrogant gits have divided us like this.

We will all do our own thing on Saturday, but Ewood Park has 40 years of memories for me, I would like to think this isn't going to be one of the worst.


On a lighter note did you enjoy Modans latest classic raving, a few rovers references, a full on broadcast on behalf of the Indian Supremacist Party, and finish with a token rovers comment.

We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please.

Because if the boo boys kick off, just like Chelsea, Bolton, West Brom last season, the only winners will be Charlton.
Can someone please tell me what you hope to achieve by being nice to Mrs Dseai, when most people don't like what she has caused?

Most people agree on here that they don't like what the owners have done to the club. The owners are not for changing.
In two years they have held onto a drowning manager for ages inevitably taking the club down.
Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers.
Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience.

The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.
Who is suggesting being "nice" to Venky's you clown?

I think you need to read what I said again.

And I quote "by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win,."

I want 3 points on Saturday, nothing more, nothing less and demonstrations during the games last season cost us at least 11 points.

I want Venky's to either sort things out or go, just like everyone else does, but you have been hurling abuse at them for two years, where the feck has that got us?

Absolutely bloody nowhere.
Less of the clown, I haven't joined the circus.
Why is it that when another opinion is brought forward you have to insult?

You want Venks to sort things, like they have been sorting things already?
Now look who's the clown.

If the outcome is Venks can't handle the club which means they have to let go, better they let go whilst there is still something to build on than for them to keep making massive mistakes, then selling some asset to make up for it.whilst everybody sits on their hands and watches.
So you can dish out insults but not take them? LOL LOL LOL. Even little, tiny ones, bloody hell I don't even think your average Burnley fan would have fallen for that one. LOL.

If you and the rest of the boo boys actually bother to turn up it won't be to support Rovers it will be to vent your spleen at Venky's.

I seem to remember the last time that happened they disappeared for several months and left Kean running everything.

The £850 million or so that someone else quoted earlier is chicken feed to Venky's, the main part of their portfolio covering pharmaceutics world wide is actually closer to £9 billion when you take into account the assets.

£25 million or £10 million for Rovers in that context? not even pocket money.

These are not stupid people, it is quite possible they have realised their mistakes and are trying to put things right.

But putting myself in their position on Saturday, remembering what happened last time they were here, I would seriously consider pulling the plug if there was a repeat.

Simple question, if someone was continually screaming abuse at you would you;

a - do what they want
b - scream abuse back
c - tell them to get stuffed and walk away.

They won't do a-, they can't do b-, that only leaves c-.

And you really, really think BRAG and BRSIT are in any position or even remotely capable of picking up the pieces?
Great post.

Unfortunately FT, Dingles aren't the only ones creaming themselves hoping Rovers go into administration. Plenty of no hope glory seekers hoping to be the next Shebby in a fan owned fantasy football scenario, where one gets to walk around town brimming with pride with their "Shareholder" status, newly acquired from yesterday's giro as they drunkenly stumble around announcing repeatedly, to anyone who cares to listen, that they are indeed on their way to the AGM. Very Impotent Pillox that they are.

You can almost picture it in their heads..

Outside the ground protests, inside the ground anti-Venky's chanting. Guaranteed loss, Point proven about Appleton's inexperienced appointment being a mistake.

Job done. Back home to gloat on your "I told you so" foresight on every available Rovers forum and drum up more disenchantment and division with any fans who don't agree, whilst continuously blaming Venky's and looking for more inventive ways of pronouncing their names and hurling more "indian" riddled insults (because 1bn people are obviously to blame for Venky's).

More failed results.. More disenchantment and frustration of players.. Looking desperate now.. Only a few more shoves needed to send the whole melting pot over the edge.. Throw a few more Shaw/Agnew/SEM conspiracies online to create more doubt..

Finally Put a few bob on the bookies as you smugly watch the club sink into administration, patting yourself on the back that the club will come out stronger for it and we will restore Jack's legacy under the newly formed fan owned club.

Who needs Venky's?

Champions league here we come!
They could prove to be almost as damaging as Venkys

Excellent post blueblooded.

That is exactly what will happen, OK BRAG and BRSIT might attempt to reform Rovers under another name (they can't use Blackburn Rovers again), but they won't have a ground or any facilities.

And whatever they come up with it won't be Rovers in my eyes, that is why I have withdrawn my support and potential investment from BRSIT.

But I will be down there on Saturday, weather permitting, supporting my team, hopefully not for the last time.

Same old arguments rehashed under a headline that was bound to provoke. If the Venkys turn on the Rovers they have the power to make the Bhatti Brothers look like philanthropists. And those who wish to scream abuse will be likened to the frantic buzzing of a dying bee.

I think its worth repeating the strategy many have said could unite Rovers fans for this match.

Show your feelings for the owners outside the ground before the game.

Then show your feelings for the club and the team, by supporting BRFC inside the ground for 90 minutes.

Gives everybody the ability to behave in the manner they feel most appropriate, (I suspect many want to do both) without creating more divisions within the crowd or giving the media excuses to call us disloyal to our club.
I agree with you greenscreener, I just know if things start to go t1ts up and we concede early doors feelings will turn nasty. Ewoods been such an edgy place these last couple of years, add to that the cause of all the carnage are going to be sat in the ground and it makes for a potential poison atmosphere.

That said, if we show positive early signs, create some good early chances and maybe score an early goal, the focus will be taken away from those w4nkers and the atmosphere might just be a positive one. It's a bit of a catch 22 really. Of course we want the lads to play well, create a positive healthy feeling in the ground and take 3 points but we don't want madame b0llocks and her cronies to think all is well or be manipulated by Shebby Shertting and his lip service trash talk. We want them to know they are responsible for ripping the heart and soul out of our football club.

I suppose the best result would be to destroy Charlton 5-0 with 20 mins to go and then chant Venkys out for the rest of the game! That'd confuse the f*ck out of em!
Actually, if we 5-0 up that'd confuse the f*ck out of me aswell!
Frankly, me too.

The problem is I actually still give a 5hit about Blackburn Rovers. I relate to those who say stay away, as I relate to those who say back the team. We all stood under the concrete together on the old Blckburn End and i can't believe these ignorant, arrogant gits have divided us like this.

We will all do our own thing on Saturday, but Ewood Park has 40 years of memories for me, I would like to think this isn't going to be one of the worst.

Ah! Now those WERE the days!

Now it has been almost six days since Michael Appleton was appointed. Could anybody tell me where I can see, read or hear from him as to what he is actually going to do now he is here? He seems to be very conspiquous by his absence.
They seek him here, they seek him there the LT don't seem to be able to interview him anywhere.

Ahhh, I used to stand in the Darwen End as well, then The Riverside, then the Enclosures of The Nuttall St, way back in the late 60's early 70's.

Quite often with the visiting fans.

I remember actually walking across the pitch at half time to whichever goal the Rovers were kicking to in the second half.

Aye, but in those days everybody swopped around at half time and crossed over on the Riverside half way line.....those were the days. There's many on this site who don't know what they have missed. Mind you, who knows, if the Venkys continue on their downwards slide, those threadbare days (but weren't we happy?) may return. I wish.. In fact, I might even pay the milk bill!.

Dont forget those among us who stood together (very closely) under the asbestos roof on the Darwen End long before the Blackburn Enders were even thought of Greenscreener.....
Aye, but in those days everybody swopped around at half time and crossed over on the Riverside half way line.....those were the days. There's many on this site who don't know what they have missed. Mind you, who knows, if the Venkys continue on their downwards slide, those threadbare days (but weren't we happy?) may return. I wish.. In fact, I might even pay the milk bill!.
it all made for some 'interesting' meetings on the Riverside with opposition fans at half time...though we often stayed on the Darren End for the second half also so we could 'welcome' the visiting fans properly :-)

Glad you like the anecdotes RTH - I like many others on here have absolutely zillions of stories after supporting the Rovers for over 50 years....

I remember that back in the early seventies Leicester City were the first club to come to Ewood who had fans that wore Harringtons and Crombies and DM's and braces and had Skinhead haircuts....really strange looking (to us) but quite 'hard' fans who gave the Rovers a bit of a chasing on the Darwen End that day.

During the sixties and very early seventies most Rovers fans behind the goals were 'Greasers/Rockers' still with studded Leather Jackets (as were most Lancashire Club teams like Blackpool, PNE, Burnley and Bolton) and greased back hair. It was Ewood on a Saturday afternoon and then round the Barbary Coast on a Saturday night. Great pubs and great music on the jukeboxes...bit rough later in the night though!

Innocent days before Murdoch created SKY which begat greedy Agents and greedy footballers who corrupted our national sport....

What a load of mess on here. Reading such divided and intense feeling shows what Venkys ownership and let's not forget Steve The Liar Kean's management have brought us to. I hate them but I cannot in my heart go to watch my team and standing booing, chanting and pointing to three Indians sat in the Directors Box (I bet they are seated somewhere private). I have to make a decision like every single person. Can I cope with being there and refraining to let those idiots know what I think of their running of my club, for the sake of the manager and team, or do I need to stay away and leave my empty seat as a sign of objection. I think it has to be one or the other. You either turn up and shut up unless you are voicing support for the team and only after let Venkys know what you think or you object by staying away.
What a load of mess on here. Reading such divided and intense feeling shows what Venkys ownership and let's not forget Steve The Liar Kean's management have brought us to.

Show your feelings for the owners outside the ground before the game.

Then show your feelings for the club and the team, by supporting BRFC inside the ground for 90 minutes.

Gives everybody the ability to behave in the manner they feel most appropriate, (I suspect many want to do both) without creating more divisions within the crowd or giving the media excuses to call us disloyal to our club.
I agree with you greenscreener, I just know if things start to go t1ts up and we concede early doors feelings will turn nasty. Ewoods been such an edgy place these last couple of years, add to that the cause of all the carnage are going to be sat in the ground and it makes for a potential poison atmosphere.

That said, if we show positive early signs, create some good early chances and maybe score an early goal, the focus will be taken away from those w4nkers and the atmosphere might just be a positive one. It's a bit of a catch 22 really. Of course we want the lads to play well, create a positive healthy feeling in the ground and take 3 points but we don't want madame b0llocks and her cronies to think all is well or be manipulated by Shebby Shertting and his lip service trash talk. We want them to know they are responsible for ripping the heart and soul out of our football club.

I suppose the best result would be to destroy Charlton 5-0 with 20 mins to go and then chant Venkys out for the rest of the game! That'd confuse the f*ck out of em!
Actually, if we 5-0 up that'd confuse the f*ck out of me aswell!
Frankly, me too.

The problem is I actually still give a 5hit about Blackburn Rovers. I relate to those who say stay away, as I relate to those who say back the team. We all stood under the concrete together on the old Blckburn End and i can't believe these ignorant, arrogant gits have divided us like this.

We will all do our own thing on Saturday, but Ewood Park has 40 years of memories for me, I would like to think this isn't going to be one of the worst.


On a lighter note did you enjoy Modans latest classic raving, a few rovers references, a full on broadcast on behalf of the Indian Supremacist Party, and finish with a token rovers comment.

odan and Roverspal1, they must be related.
Dont forget those among us who stood together (very closely) under the asbestos roof on the Darwen End long before the Blackburn Enders were even thought of Greenscreener.....
Aye, but in those days everybody swopped around at half time and crossed over on the Riverside half way line.....those were the days. There's many on this site who don't know what they have missed. Mind you, who knows, if the Venkys continue on their downwards slide, those threadbare days (but weren't we happy?) may return. I wish.. In fact, I might even pay the milk bill!.
it all made for some 'interesting' meetings on the Riverside with opposition fans at half time...though we often stayed on the Darren End for the second half also so we could 'welcome' the visiting fans properly :-)
Gotta say guys i'm loving the war-stories.
Glad you like the anecdotes RTH - I like many others on here have absolutely zillions of stories after supporting the Rovers for over 50 years....

I remember that back in the early seventies Leicester City were the first club to come to Ewood who had fans that wore Harringtons and Crombies and DM's and braces and had Skinhead haircuts....really strange looking (to us) but quite 'hard' fans who gave the Rovers a bit of a chasing on the Darwen End that day.

During the sixties and very early seventies most Rovers fans behind the goals were 'Greasers/Rockers' still with studded Leather Jackets (as were most Lancashire Club teams like Blackpool, PNE, Burnley and Bolton) and greased back hair. It was Ewood on a Saturday afternoon and then round the Barbary Coast on a Saturday night. Great pubs and great music on the jukeboxes...bit rough later in the night though!

Innocent days before Murdoch created SKY which begat greedy Agents and greedy footballers who corrupted our national sport....
FR you are rolling back the years, its a long time since I heard anybody refer to the Barbary Coast.

Legs o' Man - now there was a rough pub ! What I would give to watch the Venkys walk in there on a Friday night with their London PR men and Modan in tow.

My only memory of the old Darwen End roof was some dingle retard going up it, on it and then crashing through it into the snack bar. Must have been late 70's.

Not so innocent those days really, just a different attitude, and there wasn't cameras everywhere gathering evidence. If you stepped out of line, and we all did, you knew you could get 'slapped' And if you did, you took it, you didn't go whining about 'my rights' and compensation.

Yes I was there....the Four pennies were good - but it was really hard to hear them! I know we won 5-1 against Villa and I think it was or had been snowing? We finished 10th that season and got relegated the following season! Some things never change eh....

What a fantastic excuse for the boo boys to return to Ewood and create their own inimitable and special atmosphere during the game.

Don't get me wrong it's about time Venky's turned up and were finally made to understand the disaster they have created.

But we have a new manager on show on Saturday, a nervous team and a generally apathetic fan base , and we need to follow up on recent successes and win this game.

We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please.

Because if the boo boys kick off, just like Chelsea, Bolton, West Brom last season, the only winners will be Charlton.
Can someone please tell me what you hope to achieve by being nice to Mrs Dseai, when most people don't like what she has caused?

Most people agree on here that they don't like what the owners have done to the club. The owners are not for changing.
In two years they have held onto a drowning manager for ages inevitably taking the club down.
Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers.
Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience.

The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.
Who is suggesting being "nice" to Venky's you clown?

I think you need to read what I said again.

And I quote "by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win,."

I want 3 points on Saturday, nothing more, nothing less and demonstrations during the games last season cost us at least 11 points.

I want Venky's to either sort things out or go, just like everyone else does, but you have been hurling abuse at them for two years, where the feck has that got us?

Absolutely bloody nowhere.
Less of the clown, I haven't joined the circus.
Why is it that when another opinion is brought forward you have to insult?

You want Venks to sort things, like they have been sorting things already?
Now look who's the clown.

If the outcome is Venks can't handle the club which means they have to let go, better they let go whilst there is still something to build on than for them to keep making massive mistakes, then selling some asset to make up for it.whilst everybody sits on their hands and watches.
So you can dish out insults but not take them? LOL LOL LOL. Even little, tiny ones, bloody hell I don't even think your average Burnley fan would have fallen for that one. LOL.

If you and the rest of the boo boys actually bother to turn up it won't be to support Rovers it will be to vent your spleen at Venky's.

I seem to remember the last time that happened they disappeared for several months and left Kean running everything.

The £850 million or so that someone else quoted earlier is chicken feed to Venky's, the main part of their portfolio covering pharmaceutics world wide is actually closer to £9 billion when you take into account the assets.

£25 million or £10 million for Rovers in that context? not even pocket money.

These are not stupid people, it is quite possible they have realised their mistakes and are trying to put things right.

But putting myself in their position on Saturday, remembering what happened last time they were here, I would seriously consider pulling the plug if there was a repeat.

Simple question, if someone was continually screaming abuse at you would you;

a - do what they want
b - scream abuse back
c - tell them to get stuffed and walk away.

They won't do a-, they can't do b-, that only leaves c-.

And you really, really think BRAG and BRSIT are in any position or even remotely capable of picking up the pieces?
As an Indian Venkys are worth £2 Bilion in assets not the £9 Billion as you quoted.
The biggest companys in India are TATA $100 Billion
Reliance £68 Billion
INDIAN OIL CORPRATION $41 BILLION
BIRLAS $40 BILLION
Bharat petroleum $40 Billion
Indias richest men
Ambani £23 billion

I seem to remember the last time that happened they disappeared for several months and left Kean running everything.

The £850 million or so that someone else quoted earlier is chicken feed to Venky's, the main part of their portfolio covering pharmaceutics world wide is actually closer to £9 billion when you take into account the assets.

£25 million or £10 million for Rovers in that context? not even pocket money.

These are not stupid people, it is quite possible they have realised their mistakes and are trying to put things right.

But putting myself in their position on Saturday, remembering what happened last time they were here, I would seriously consider pulling the plug if there was a repeat.

Simple question, if someone was continually screaming abuse at you would you;

a - do what they want
b - scream abuse back
c - tell them to get stuffed and walk away.

They won't do a-, they can't do b-, that only leaves c-.

And you really, really think BRAG and BRSIT are in any position or even remotely capable of picking up the pieces?
As an Indian Venkys are worth £2 Bilion in assets not the £9 Billion as you quoted.
The biggest companys in India are TATA $100 Billion
Reliance £68 Billion
INDIAN OIL CORPRATION $41 BILLION
BIRLAS $40 BILLION
Bharat petroleum $40 Billion
Indias richest men
Ambani £23 billion
Laxmi Mittal £17.5billion
Your point being?

I wish I had 2 billion, or 5 billion, or even 9 billion.

I would probably buy an Indian Cricket franchise to expand my interests in the sub continent.

Now I don't have a clue how Cricket works in India, apart from Test Match Special and Sky's coverage on TV, but I am pretty sure I could find someone over there who could advise me?

After all Cricket is pretty big over there....isn't it?

Buy in some really famous players when the bidding starts, after all I have plenty of money and that's all they are after...isn't it?

This Tendulkar guy, a bit past it, but won't the locals flock to see him, and the TV rights, with my company's name right up there, heaven.

OK the managers a fat boring old **** but we can pay him off with a nice big cheque, we know he doesn't want to be with us anyway so all I have to do is wind him up and Bobs your uncle, so to speak.

And there's no relegation even if you loose, franchises don't work that way.......do they?

Oh ****, what have I got myself into?

What a fantastic excuse for the boo boys to return to Ewood and create their own inimitable and special atmosphere during the game. Don't get me wrong it's about time Venky's turned up and were finally made to understand the disaster they have created. But we have a new manager on show on Saturday, a nervous team and a generally apathetic fan base , and we need to follow up on recent successes and win this game. We need to be getting behind Appleton and the team full stop, by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win, but not during the game please. Because if the boo boys kick off, just like Chelsea, Bolton, West Brom last season, the only winners will be Charlton.[/p][/quote]Can someone please tell me what you hope to achieve by being nice to Mrs Dseai, when most people don't like what she has caused? Most people agree on here that they don't like what the owners have done to the club. The owners are not for changing. In two years they have held onto a drowning manager for ages inevitably taking the club down. Brought in a global advisor to just say anything, who bought some cheap non descript portugeesers. Were told by everybody that the club needs experience, and went and got inexperience, sacked, lesson learnt? no, more inexperience. The more people smile and endure the Venks, the longer they will torture the club and fans. What ever will be will be, but they are not going to learn to run this club properly, and they certainly don't loose sleep over it.[/p][/quote]Who is suggesting being "nice" to Venky's you clown? I think you need to read what I said again. And I quote "by all means demonstrate after the game if that rocks your boat, especially if we win,." I want 3 points on Saturday, nothing more, nothing less and demonstrations during the games last season cost us at least 11 points. I want Venky's to either sort things out or go, just like everyone else does, but you have been hurling abuse at them for two years, where the feck has that got us? Absolutely bloody nowhere.[/p][/quote]Less of the clown, I haven't joined the circus. Why is it that when another opinion is brought forward you have to insult? You want Venks to sort things, like they have been sorting things already? Now look who's the clown. If the outcome is Venks can't handle the club which means they have to let go, better they let go whilst there is still something to build on than for them to keep making massive mistakes, then selling some asset to make up for it.whilst everybody sits on their hands and watches.[/p][/quote]So you can dish out insults but not take them?

Show your feelings for the owners outside the ground before the game.

Then show your feelings for the club and the team, by supporting BRFC inside the ground for 90 minutes.

Gives everybody the ability to behave in the manner they feel most appropriate, (I suspect many want to do both) without creating more divisions within the crowd or giving the media excuses to call us disloyal to our club.
I agree with you greenscreener, I just know if things start to go t1ts up and we concede early doors feelings will turn nasty. Ewoods been such an edgy place these last couple of years, add to that the cause of all the carnage are going to be sat in the ground and it makes for a potential poison atmosphere.

That said, if we show positive early signs, create some good early chances and maybe score an early goal, the focus will be taken away from those w4nkers and the atmosphere might just be a positive one. It's a bit of a catch 22 really. Of course we want the lads to play well, create a positive healthy feeling in the ground and take 3 points but we don't want madame b0llocks and her cronies to think all is well or be manipulated by Shebby Shertting and his lip service trash talk. We want them to know they are responsible for ripping the heart and soul out of our football club.

I suppose the best result would be to destroy Charlton 5-0 with 20 mins to go and then chant Venkys out for the rest of the game! That'd confuse the f*ck out of em!
Actually, if we 5-0 up that'd confuse the f*ck out of me aswell!
Frankly, me too.

The problem is I actually still give a 5hit about Blackburn Rovers. I relate to those who say stay away, as I relate to those who say back the team. We all stood under the concrete together on the old Blckburn End and i can't believe these ignorant, arrogant gits have divided us like this.

We will all do our own thing on Saturday, but Ewood Park has 40 years of memories for me, I would like to think this isn't going to be one of the worst.


On a lighter note did you enjoy Modans latest classic raving, a few rovers references, a full on broadcast on behalf of the Indian Supremacist Party, and finish with a token rovers comment.

odan and Roverspal1, they must be related.
Dont forget those among us who stood together (very closely) under the asbestos roof on the Darwen End long before the Blackburn Enders were even thought of Greenscreener.....
Aye, but in those days everybody swopped around at half time and crossed over on the Riverside half way line.....those were the days. There's many on this site who don't know what they have missed. Mind you, who knows, if the Venkys continue on their downwards slide, those threadbare days (but weren't we happy?) may return. I wish.. In fact, I might even pay the milk bill!.
it all made for some 'interesting' meetings on the Riverside with opposition fans at half time...though we often stayed on the Darren End for the second half also so we could 'welcome' the visiting fans properly :-)
Gotta say guys i'm loving the war-stories.
Glad you like the anecdotes RTH - I like many others on here have absolutely zillions of stories after supporting the Rovers for over 50 years....

I remember that back in the early seventies Leicester City were the first club to come to Ewood who had fans that wore Harringtons and Crombies and DM's and braces and had Skinhead haircuts....really strange looking (to us) but quite 'hard' fans who gave the Rovers a bit of a chasing on the Darwen End that day.

During the sixties and very early seventies most Rovers fans behind the goals were 'Greasers/Rockers' still with studded Leather Jackets (as were most Lancashire Club teams like Blackpool, PNE, Burnley and Bolton) and greased back hair. It was Ewood on a Saturday afternoon and then round the Barbary Coast on a Saturday night. Great pubs and great music on the jukeboxes...bit rough later in the night though!

Innocent days before Murdoch created SKY which begat greedy Agents and greedy footballers who corrupted our national sport....
FR you are rolling back the years, its a long time since I heard anybody refer to the Barbary Coast.

Legs o' Man - now there was a rough pub ! What I would give to watch the Venkys walk in there on a Friday night with their London PR men and Modan in tow.

My only memory of the old Darwen End roof was some dingle retard going up it, on it and then crashing through it into the snack bar. Must have been late 70's.

Not so innocent those days really, just a different attitude, and there wasn't cameras everywhere gathering evidence. If you stepped out of line, and we all did, you knew you could get 'slapped' And if you did, you took it, you didn't go whining about 'my rights' and compensation.
Legs o man.... old bank... dirty duck.... and many others, great days... which I remember fondly, and a time when all Rovers fans had to argue about was their individual interpretation of the match we had just watched.... A time so far removed from today, where the Venky's have against fan and even families divided. time to re-unite.....

Intriguing argument; support the people who allegedly stopped us going into administration under the previous owners by taking us far, far closer to it themselves.

Where did you get the idea the club was going into administration under the Walker Trust? It seemed to be bobbing along quite nicely thanks very much. You may have forgotten we were in the PL for over ten years supposedly teetering on the edge of administration, much longer than we were when all the money was sloshing about. You have to cut your cloth accordingly and the administration was doing just that.

We would have been relegated eventually; that was inevitable at some stage in the future. Of course if there were still people running the club with half an idea, it may not have seemed too bad.

Trouble is there aren't and it does.
