BLACKBURN Rovers' attempts to sign DJ Campbell and Jerome Thomas have broken down at the 11th hour.

The duo put pen to paper on deals at Rovers but neither move was completed in time, before this evening's 11pm transfer deadline.

The last-gasp drama leaves manager Michael Appleton having signed just one player this window, Everton youngster Anton Forrester.

Meanwhile, Simon Vuckevic's contract has been ended by mutual consent, with Diogo Rosado joining Benfica on loan.

Ruben Rochina has also claimed on twitter he has joined Spanish outfit Real Zaragoza on loan until the end of the season.

Jordan Slew has joined Rotherham on loan and Micah Evans has joined Macclesfield on loan.

What do you expect with 2nd rate admin staff?

Very disappointed that we lose two of our most talented pro's in RR and SV.
With Robbo digging his heels in and milking his Prem contract from the bench (if selected)!

QPR are doing what Venky's should have done 18 months ago

Or just a "ploy" to make it look like we tried to sign two quality players? Or am I being cynical?! Several out, one 18 yr old striker in!! Another successful transfer window!! Why were these two not signed days ago? Poor planning? Panic buys? Or venkys dragging their heels?? JOKE

I would like to know who is responsible for this and heads should roll. They have put in place a Manager who is doing all the right things and put good backroom staff in place and they have failed to back the man up, in fact they have let him down badly. The squad is weaker now than it was before and they want him to get promotion. Not sure if they can use the loan market now to put things right. I was going on Saturday now they can get stuffed.

So we got rid of formica, vucevic and rochina... and the biggest problem with our squad is creating chances... we all know rhodes scores every time hes given half a chance. So the only players who can realistically play down the wings now are peds, king and ollson. Backup of nunez and morris. I would have much prefered the total opposite, the three best have gone. Defensively we are still 1 man short for cover, no inroads made whatsoever on that front. Didnt appleton leave blackpool because he was promised cash that didnt materialize? I expect his resignation in the morning then...

We may want to consider that players didn't want to come to Blackburn as well. After all the bad publicity of the last couple of years, that may be an issue.
As for the players that have left, I agree that there can be no rhyme or reason why Rochina was let go with no replacement signed up. Formica and Simon I can understand because they did not set the world on fire for whatever reason. Can we cancel the loan deals?
And, if it is down to an administrative c*ck-up, then this cannot be put at the Venky's door. It is the people who run things behind the scene such as Shaw and the like who have to take responsibility.
Finally, let's not tear ourselves apart over this! Appleton seems to have been making strides in getting things organised both on and off the pitch. It is a long shot that we are going to go up this season anyway so perhaps we look at this as a consolidation season. After all that is what we did last time we went down and most clubs don't bounce back straight away.
It is better to use Venky's and their money rather than alienate them because after all there are not exactly hundreds of billionaires beating a path down Bolton Road to hand over their dosh.

I just want to punch a hole in my wall every time I read some clown's comment on here say "there isn't exactly hundreds of billionaires.." and the likes. We don't need a billionaire you idiot. There are 92 clubs in the football league, and others beyond, most of which have very capable, modest and astute owners who take enough interest and have the knowledge and ability to run it properly.

And as far as blaming the admin rather than venky's is concerned, who the hell do you think removed the very capable last administration and put in place the current one?

Wild Rover said at the beginning of yesterday, stop 'pre-judging,' lets 'wait and see.' We've waited, we've seen. The fact is it just isn't necessary anymore. Anybody without the blind desire to 'look on the positive side' knows what's going on here and the rest just have their head in the sand.

A fully expected awful transfer window that was essentially just a wage-slashing exercise.

And as far as blaming the admin rather than venky's is concerned, who the hell do you think removed the very capable last administration and put in place the current one? Wild Rover said at the beginning of yesterday, stop 'pre-judging,' lets 'wait and see.' We've waited, we've seen. The fact is it just isn't necessary anymore. Anybody without the blind desire to 'look on the positive side' knows what's going on here and the rest just have their head in the sand. A fully expected awful transfer window that was essentially just a wage-slashing exercise. reiko082

"....people who run things behind the scene such as Shaw and the like who have to take responsibility"

People running things behind the scenes (badly) appointed by Venkys.

And we don't need to be bowing down and giving thanks Venkys have saved us because they haven't. Quite the opposite. They may say they want to take us back into the PL but is there anything they have done to make you believe they are capable of doing it?

Answers on the back of a stamp please.

Shame some of the 'deadwood' was as good, if not better, than some of the players who are staying. Then again I remember some 'fans' being pleased that we got rid of 'deadwood' big earners like Samba and Nelson last season - and look how well that turned out. The only push we'll be doing next season is to get rid of more players off the wage bill to cover Venky's mismanagement of the club.

It'll be interesting to see if these deals failed to materialise because the players were demanding too much money or because Venky's pulled out? The fact that DJ Campbell was supposedly signed hours before the 'window' closed suggests it's the latter. If it's either of these scenarios then I doubt we'll be able to get Campbell or Thomas in on loan either. I think Williamson could be our only other addition this season.

Why did Appleton sanction loan moves for Rochina and others before players were brought in. Other Managers would not agree to it. He is equally to blame with Shaw,Agnew and Venkys. He was too busy bringing half of ex-portsmouth coaches and management in.

I can only think that they had been planning on getting a couple of more higher wage earners off the balance sheet, in order to free up wages for newcomers.

Totally agree. Baptiste was the most important target, and one that we should have signed. Again evidence of Venkys not being willing to fund transfers are. Have anybody done calculations since the sale of Phil Jones? Have they put in money at all? And why on earth allow RR to go on loan?? I agree he is not playing consistently well, but on a good day he is one of our most creative players.

Really hope we can get Baptiste on loan with an option to make move permanent in the summer.

Whilst not a great window in terms of bringing players in, we have to be a little realistic here. The January window is a disaster. The majority of deals happen in the last 48 hours due to players/agents waiting to get the best deal during the window. So whatever unfolded last night I'm sure will come out in due course. My guess is that Thomas and Campbell probably demanded more cash at the last hour. They are accustomed to Premiership wages.

As for RR. No major loss l. Great technical ability and flair but most of his plays ended up with a wayward shot on goal, let's be honest.

I'm just happy we still have the likes of Olsson etc. Now let's kick on for the season

I doubt that any information of substance will be forthcoming out of the good ship Ewood over these matters, but at least we can form our opinion from the field of play - there will lie the answers ?

Appleton now as the tools to work with now and until the end of the season with which to carve out a successful team, or not ?

And, if it is down to an administrative c*ck-up, then this cannot be put at the Venky's door. It is the people who run things behind the scene such as Shaw and the like who have to take responsibility.
Finally, let's not tear ourselves apart over this! Appleton seems to have been making strides in getting things organised both on and off the pitch. It is a long shot that we are going to go up this season anyway so perhaps we look at this as a consolidation season. After all that is what we did last time we went down and most clubs don't bounce back straight away.
It is better to use Venky's and their money rather than alienate them because after all there are not exactly hundreds of billionaires beating a path down Bolton Road to hand over their dosh.

As for Thomas, granted we could have done with him.

It a bit disappointing I agree but could have been a whole lot worse. Givet, Dann, Olsson & Rhodes could have all been sold

Now Appleton will understand this is not a normal club. I must say when the deals were supposed to be happening for Campbell and Thomas, how were they going to get the "green light" or the "rubber stamp" (which we always need) from the other side of the world.

Michael welcome to the Venkydome!!!!!

I am surprised that Rochina was allowed to depart apart from this there is still plenty more driftwood to get rid of on top of the dross that has already been cleared out.

Riverside 7 says...

A week ago, Appleton said in an interview on Radio Lancashire that he had not met or even spoken to Shebby Singh.
That was 14 days after he had joined the club.

Appleton added that Shebby had his telephone number if he needed to speak with him - a very strange comment indeed.

The next day I asked on this forum, if Appleton was not peaking to Shebby, then who would be responsible for negoatiating transfer fees and new player contracts in the transfer window.

I therefore wonder whether we have we just witnessed Shebby's revenge?

If not our inability to sign players must be down to Shaw and Agnew's incompetetence or Venky's refusing to authorise the deals.

Either way it makes a mockery of the clubs stated intention of an immediate return to the Premier League and ranks alongside our performance in last years January window when we brought in Anthony Modeste, Markus Olsson and Bradley Orr.

Deep gratitude goes to Rob Coar (take a bow), The Global Advisor (remember him), and, of course, the snowball dodging, "all things are possible" promising Venkys. Allelujah! The promised land has arrived. We are soooo lucky to have such generous and talented sponsors from the sub-continent. After the transfer deals of this January window we can be confident of picking up 3 points in every match. Thank you Venkys. All Blackburn supporters are deeply indebted to you. Following the window we have now got such a strong squad! Where would we have been without Mama Desai's passing football philosophy? One small criticism is why is Vindaloo Venky still going about like a morbidly obese, greasy, slovenly dressed, one brain cell, gangster?

DON'T hold your breath. Just remember at season ticket renewal time.

I would imagine the vast majority of season ticket holders ( not just posters on here ) are very, very angry.

If Venkys were disappointed with last seasons uptake they might be in for a bigger shock next season, and rightly so.

The retarded chuckle brothers strike again. We let go a few first team players and bring in absolutely no one. We now have a weaker squad and Mr Appleton has no new players in to strengthen a seriously imbalanced and now weakened squad. Appalling window, the worst since the chuckle brothers took over.

The chuckle brothers should really give someone in the UK the power of attorney to sign off on deals, because this is an absolute disgrace. Especially, as they claimed they wanted to bounce back at the first attempt. It just shows they cannot even be bothered to answer the phone, when a crucial deadline line day last hour call comes through.

i genuinely feel sorry for appleton - he seems a regular bloke who thought/believed he would be allowed to bring a few in to strengthen the team - instead he has been forced to pare the squad down (regardless of what some of you think of each player's ability) and bring in a young lad from everton - whatever way you look at it today the squad is weaker than it was last week.

we are told that appleton was miffed at blackpool because oyston would not sanction expenditure on the squad - well, welcome to ewood mr appleton - venkys make the oystons look like a bunch on small-town estate agents (oops!). whether it is c0ck-up or conspiracy the net effect is the same and rovers are left looking weaker at the end of this window. i wonder if appleton is still impressed with the owners "extremely ambitious" plans for BRFC and their desire to get back into the premiership.

no doubt modan will tell us how many rolls royce cars they have bought this week and how fast their helicopter goes at and the number of en-suite bathrooms in their pune mansion

and as for all of you that thought that eventually the venkys has learned from their previous mistakes and had turned a corner - still think the same this fair morning.

Totally agree. Baptiste was the most important target, and one that we should have signed. Again evidence of Venkys not being willing to fund transfers are. Have anybody done calculations since the sale of Phil Jones? Have they put in money at all? And why on earth allow RR to go on loan?? I agree he is not playing consistently well, but on a good day he is one of our most creative players. * Really hope we can get Baptiste on loan with an option to make move permanent in the summer. * VENKYS OUT!!!
The Venkys have a curious approach to defensive signings and sales. They sell off all of our best defenders and freeze out the others. Then they sign Scott Dann and that is pretty much it. Just not good enough, and no wonder we have such a poor defence and let in so many last minute goals.

The chance comes to spend some of the money they have trousered from selling off the family silver and they cannot be reached. Retards. This club is going absolutely NOWHERE until these cowboys sell the club.

Hasn't the penny yet dropped ? Venkys made a massive commercial error of judgment in buying Rovers, they are now cutting their losses. You'll never understand the situation at Rovers if you think it has anything to do with football.

Hi Roverstillidie,
it wasn't Venkys that brought the PR firm into Ewood.
It was Michael Appleton who made it one of his conditions of joining the Rovers that he could bring in a PR firm that he had worked with previously.

This transfer window debacle is nothing to do with him (or his PR team) this is just down to gross incompetence within the club admin, though we will never know who is to blame. Nothing any PR or manager could do about that.

I bet MA is absolutely seething right now - but a lot of the moves did work out - Rochina, Formica and Vukevic all promised much but delivered little. The others that went were all bit part players that had no future at Ewood.

The best result of the window was keeping hold of Olsson and Dann (and probably Robbo for a little while too). If either Scott or Martin had gone in the window then we would have proper cause to complain as we would have been severely depleted in defense - as these are two very good players. Oh yes and welcome to Ewood to Anton Forrester. At least one move in went ok....

The squad is currently about where it should be in terms of ability - mid-table, 2nd tier of english football.

I do not think they will ever be forgiven for such mis-management and more long-standing fans will vote with their feet. Another relegation or two would do the club some good - we were something like 13th in the premier league when they sacked Big Sam - now we are around the same spot a division below - actions speak louder than words - and the owners actions have been very, very damaging - the fans are long past listening to any spin or PR from no-marks.

Andy Cryer is saying that this isn't down to Venkys, the paperwork wasn't submitted in time. It'll be interesting to hear what Appleton has to say about it, and whether he believes either player will be allowed to join on loan instead. As for balancing out the squad...

GK- Kean, Robinson, Usai, (Sandomierski)
RB- Orr, Henley, Kane (until next week)
CB- Dann, G Hanley, Givet, (Henrique, Edwards)
LB- Mn Olsson, Morris, (Daly)

AM- Pedersen, (Payne)

RW-
ST- Rhodes, Kazim-Richards, Gomes, Goodwillie, Best, (Forrester, Edinho)
LW- Ms Olsson, King, Fabio Nunes

...not too bad, although the lack of a single right sided midfielder or winger means that whatever side Appleton puts out, it's still going to be unbalanced. Nunes looked okay when he played there but he looked far more of a threat on the left.

BRFC75 you should be ashamed of yourself for spreading roumers like that without proper information.

Those who say possibly the Venky's didn't sign off at the last minute, it is 4.30 AM in India when the transfer window closes, so they are not staying awake all night to sign off that is not businesses work. This is clearly SHAW and AGNEW messing up.

Also every one forgot about the guy (can't remember his name) Appleton bought over from Portsmouth who is a whizkid (Appleton called him 'his mobile phone' or something like that) in buying and selling players. What was he doing? Or is this all his doing?

Lets forget all that it is always Venky's fault...

It wasnt a surprise at all to me. Fully expected them to say they didn't have time to get anybody in. The Comedy Club is on at Blackburn tonight if you need a laugh.You sound more desperate than us.

BRFC75 you should be ashamed of yourself for spreading roumers like that without proper information.

Those who say possibly the Venky's didn't sign off at the last minute, it is 4.30 AM in India when the transfer window closes, so they are not staying awake all night to sign off that is not businesses work. This is clearly SHAW and AGNEW messing up.

Also every one forgot about the guy (can't remember his name) Appleton bought over from Portsmouth who is a whizkid (Appleton called him 'his mobile phone' or something like that) in buying and selling players. What was he doing? Or is this all his doing?

Lets forget all that it is always Venky's fault...
Apparently Venkys had done their bit. They allegedly didnt know about Rochina going and are angry. Clearly Agnew and Shaw cant do their jobs but we all knew that anyway. The only mistake Venkys made is leaving our club in the hands of more cretins.

Venkys are ultimately responsible for everything that goes on at the club, including this latest c*ck up.

If they employed the right people, which they already had when they bought the club, things would have been better organised and probably gone through smoothly.

Always assuming that was what Venkys wanted, and it is by no means clear that they wanted to spend any money at all, given their record during the last five transfer windows.

Anyway, the proof is in the pudding they say. Having done exactly the same as last year, culminating in relegation, they have shipped players out with no hope of bringing any in. Samba went after the windw was shut and never replaced, now they have done the same with formica rochina and vueckevic. These three players were in the first team squad. So yet again there is a pattern emerging. Ship out players from your first team squad and don't replace them.
I never used to agree with some weird theories on here, but looking at the club over the last two years it is now obvious.
ASSET STRIPPING
They purchased Rhodes to appease the natives knowing full well that Rhodes would be a nice set of blinkers to the ewood faithful.
Well, now look at the squad and hand on heart we are looking towards another relegation battle.
I hope appleton can motivate the division one squad we have left, as next transfer window Rhodes will be long gone and there is only one parachute paymenet to wait for.
There should be a government inquiry and we need to demand one now.

Nightmare? lol; lol.

OK we didn't sign a couple of REASONABLE players for whatever reason.

Such is life, nobody died that I am aware of.

Why the panic? Sometimes **** just happens.

Sad to see Rochina go but he is a luxury in this division and Vucevic was in all honesty never quite right.

No quite sure but did either of them feature in the last couple of games? Which to all who made the effort to go down and watch were in fact massive improvements on what we had seen for sometime.

But we still have Givet, if he decides to play, and Best has resumed full time training, so all is not lost.

Lets be honest, we were trying to hang onto players just as other clubs were trying to hang onto theirs.

Get real guys, even if we had got rid of 10 players there would be another 15 on our books who still wouldn't even get on the bench.

All deadwood.

A win on Saturday changes everything.

Who do you lot think you are? Some truth there though, the current Blackburn squad has got to be the weakest seen at Ewood in many a year. I think the rot has well and truly set in and the worst is yet to come. Your only hope of bouncing back went with Steve Kean as much as you will dispute it.

I wonder what will be thrown at the Venky's the next time they turn up at Ewood in a fleet of Rolls Royce's... cabbages? gravel? excrement?

Cant argue but when he had an off day, which was more often that not we ended up playing with 10 men.

Personally I love watching him, but in this league we need grafters who can still be effective even when they aren't playing well.
Know what you mean but every team can afford one luxury player. Duncan Mckenzie. Steve Archibald, Ozzie Ardiles, Stuart Metcalfe, etc. somebody you wanted to watch ply their trade as a skilful player.

You change with the wind. One month you are thrilled because we have the cretin Kean in charge and you feel confident he will sink us, the next month Kean would have been the saviour. You Burnley fans like to do that. Coyle was your messiah, your moses leading you to the promised land and then he was your Judas. Cabbages, gravel and excrement? I hate to think what you life is like. You talk in such denigrated terms. I saw Burnley fans in action against Coyle. believe me, you are not in a position to advise us about behaviour. If it really bothers you though, why not hire a PI to find the ONE 'fan' who threw a snow ball at Venkys and then you can take him/her to task and you wont lose anymore sleep over it. Go one better and get him to find the Spurs fan that threw one at Evra when he was taking a throw in. You could make yourself a small business out of it and become the Snowball Police.

Well looks like they'll have to be brought in next week in the loan market.

The only departure I think we may miss is Rochina, his creativity and flair had its uses. Vukcevic, Formica, Rosado, Linganzi and Slew were never in Appleton's plans, hence them not being named in the team sheet for the past 2 matches.

However not to have signed the two players when they had been at Brockhall for a good chunk of the day is just diabolic. Campbell should of been signed much earlier, both players had even signed the papers!

I'm beyond holding everyone ransom to the past 2 years, it get's us nowhere, but this was just a joke.

Thank god for the loan market in a weeks time.

I was at the charlton game and Rochina got boo ed off by the fans, he lost the ball time after time and never seemed to grasp the concept of passing to team mates. Do not get me wrong his individual stuff was at times great but his decision making on the field has been poor all season, I wanted him to do weel and was really glad when he got in the side for a few games but i did start to see why people were saying he needs to learn when to do what.

Think the LET needs to get an interview with Shaw and Agnew to explain whats gone on in this window.

I liked watching him. I don't agree we need a team of grafters. We need a mix. Rochina came from Barcelona B team and in that he needed coaching and sound management to play in a first team in English football. He didnt get that. He had to cope with the tactic challenged Kean and then a succession of other managers. I dont think its fair to judge him. How do you think a young Duff or Dunn would have faired?

The only skill Rochina has is dribbling into trouble constantly and shooting repeatedly from ridiculous positions. A total liability and not to be compared remotely with Mckenzie Metcalfe etc.

I find it hard to see how anyone on here could complain about Ruben Rochina on here. Every time he plays he creates something. You know, like, that is the aim of football, to score goals. Sometimes I think you'd all be happy with 11 Garry Flitcroft's. Ruben Rochina has been one of the bright lights in what has been an awful season. He has scored a few, and set up Rhodes more often than anyone else. I really can't understand that one. I'm disappointed that Appleton couldn't find a way to get what is an obvious talent in to the team and playing consistently. What is the point of watching Blackburn anymore? All the guile and skill has gone?

And, if it is down to an administrative c*ck-up, then this cannot be put at the Venky's door. It is the people who run things behind the scene such as Shaw and the like who have to take responsibility.
Finally, let's not tear ourselves apart over this! Appleton seems to have been making strides in getting things organised both on and off the pitch. It is a long shot that we are going to go up this season anyway so perhaps we look at this as a consolidation season. After all that is what we did last time we went down and most clubs don't bounce back straight away.
It is better to use Venky's and their money rather than alienate them because after all there are not exactly hundreds of billionaires beating a path down Bolton Road to hand over their dosh.
Talk about rose tinted spectacles!
Not Rose-tinted specs Stoner but in the light of other information, I am offering an opinion. I am no Venky Quisling. I have seen what they have done to our club and I would be the first to usher them out of the door but preparing transfer window paperwork is not their job, it's Shaw and Co's. Businesses employ managers to turn plans and strategy into outcomes. The blame should be laid squarely at their door. Shaw is the MD of Rovers - a subsidiary company of Venkys. In the "real" business world he would be for the high jump for what happened at the end of the transfer window.

IF (note the big IF) the Venky's have gone onto TV and the Press and said there is going to be money to spend on transfers and hired a PR company to relay that message whilst all the time deliberately plotting to carry out a last day debacle like this then they are the worse kind of masochists because they are going to get slaughtered for what has happened and Rovers stock and theirs will plummet even further.

It probably didn't help the situation that we have completely changed the management team in the last month either.

And of course we need billionaires to back us to get into the Premiership or crowds of 40,000 plus which we don't have because Premiership football is a (very) rich person's game nowadays. Even Jack Walker would struggle to compete with the Citys, Chelseas, Newcastles, QPRs, Stokes, etc these days...and we were which is why the Walkers trust sold us.

I reiterate - let's not tear ourselves apart about this latest setback. Focus on the lads on the pitch not the f*ckwits in the boardroom come the next home match.

Even Jack Walker would struggle to compete with the Citys, Chelseas, Newcastles, QPRs, Stokes, etc these days...and we were which is why the Walkers trust sold us. I reiterate - let's not tear ourselves apart about this latest setback. Focus on the lads on the pitch not the f*ckwits in the boardroom come the next home match. RoverDownSouth

Agreed. See above comment, regarding Rochina.

I find it hard to see how anyone on here could complain about Ruben Rochina on here. Every time he plays he creates something. You know, like, that is the aim of football, to score goals. Sometimes I think you'd all be happy with 11 Garry Flitcroft's. Ruben Rochina has been one of the bright lights in what has been an awful season. He has scored a few, and set up Rhodes more often than anyone else. I really can't understand that one. I'm disappointed that Appleton couldn't find a way to get what is an obvious talent in to the team and playing consistently. What is the point of watching Blackburn anymore? All the guile and skill has gone?
not sure were your getting your stas from to be honest but he has had 3 assisst all season , pederesn has had 6 , hes had 51 shots and scored 5, against Bolton he continously ran into 2-3 players and the same happened against Charlton. I am not saying he is a terrible player but these stats dont make him prolific and this is the championship so I was expecting better this season.

Mrs D in her dressing gown and slippers, Venkatesh and Balaji in matching Claret onesie's watching cricket on Sky. The phone rings and it's one of the bod's from that little sideline they have running in a small backwater town in Lancashire, pleading with her about something called the transfer window and asking her to sanction the signing of a DJ? Mrs D thinks back to their last visit to this bleak outpost and of all the bile and hatred shown to them, she pictures the snowball screaming through the air, and the chants of Venky's out and scum...

I do not need the likes of wild rover to tell me I am not a supporter of BRFC. That is the very point. Whilst the current owners bring the club down I refuse to condone their actions. I refuse to put money in their pocket. Until they can prove to me that they have the best interests of the club at heart, that they will do everything in their power to return the club to what it was. And I don't mean just a PL club but a club we can all be proud of once again. Even in a lower division. That they cut out the management circus and restore sanity to its running. Then I and probably many more will give our presence at Ewood a miss. Some may say good riddance but I say at least I have my memories of over 58 years of loyal support, even during our years in the lower leagues to look back on with pride.

Not really, but how much of a fee will you get for someone in his final 12 months? Looks like one of the big boys like bournemouth would take him on loan with a view to a permanent then free transfer.

Not a lot to add to what has already been said. Our natural instinct is to hope that things are turning and improving and then this. Another kick in the balls. They are absolute clowns Shaw and Agnew. Or more realistically they are simply implementing orders from the Cancerous Venkys to continue to reduce the wage bill.
How can anyone who actually goes to the game not be completely flattened by the loss of Ruben. Of course he was flawed but he was flair and tried to attack the defence, he wanted to score. Only 2 great saves prevented him from scoring against the Rams.
What an awful day.

Like he banged them in when Rovers came to Turf at the peak of Austin's 'powers'?

Oh no he didn't. He was in Scott Dann's back pocket all day long and I thought he had been subbed at half time such was his contribution to the second half.

I'm sure you'll see him in March, give him a wave when he's celebrating.[/p][/quote]Like he banged them in when Rovers came to Turf at the peak of Austin's 'powers'? Oh no he didn't. He was in Scott Dann's back pocket all day long and I thought he had been subbed at half time such was his contribution to the second half. jack01

Why is everyone so concerned that Rochina has left? So what, he had skill, but he had no end product! He scored the odd goal, but how many have we conceded through him giving the ball away whilst trying to take to many people on? Lost count the amount of times he made a good run, should have passed and then we are caught short at the back!

We were told very clearly several weeks BEFORE the window not to expect players to be bought, and that any inquiries as to Charlie Austin would be rebuffed. Our board didn't lie to us. That's what has happened - no players in, and offers for Austin rebuffed. According to SSNews, (so pinch of salt maybe...) 2 bids in the £6.5 to £7 million area rebuffed, from QPR and Notts Forrest.
So how competent and truthful were your board?

OK we didn't sign a couple of REASONABLE players for whatever reason.

Such is life, nobody died that I am aware of.

Why the panic? Sometimes **** just happens.

Sad to see Rochina go but he is a luxury in this division and Vucevic was in all honesty never quite right.

No quite sure but did either of them feature in the last couple of games? Which to all who made the effort to go down and watch were in fact massive improvements on what we had seen for sometime.

But we still have Givet, if he decides to play, and Best has resumed full time training, so all is not lost.

Lets be honest, we were trying to hang onto players just as other clubs were trying to hang onto theirs.

Get real guys, even if we had got rid of 10 players there would be another 15 on our books who still wouldn't even get on the bench.

All deadwood.

A win on Saturday changes everything.
'A win on Saturday changes everything.' LOL!

P.S. No-one is panicking but neither do we have your rose-tinted specs to delude us.

I've accepted it, and can sleep at night .
Then pray tell us idiots, what point is there forever coming on this site?
Every-one should be able to give their opinion. That is the idea of the site!
The fans can do absolutely nothing.
Yes, but what is the point? What do you gain by keep telling us why you no longer support the team?
I do support the team. What gave you the idea I don't? I don't give money to the idiots, of course, but I support the team. I'll be back when the shysters have gone - probably in the Blue Square wotsit by then but I'll be there!

What MA needed most wasn't the support of the fans but the support of the owners to start the rebuilding of the team with 'his' own players rather than the ones bought by K#$n. There are glaring shortcomings in the team which nonsense such as 'lets keep behind the team' and 'positive momentum' cannot begin to address. This was the last transfer window before season-ticket renewals go out, what 'positive' message does this offer the fans or MA for next season?
None whatsoever. This club just continues to spiral endlessly down the pan.

If the "head in the sand brigade " can't see what they are "supporting " now., they never will do.
We are where we are my head is not in the sand on the contrary it's very much in the real world how do you think negativity will help or are you just moaning?
Yes, I've been moaning for the past two years because I could see what's been going on.
During the last FIVE transfer windows Venkys have spent nothing and at the same time have sold or forced out all of our best players and left us with not much more than a squad of Portuguese reserves. Why ?

If you haven't had your head in the sand explain what YOU think has been going on.

So next year he will be unable to command a fee and will leave for nothing, Superb, its great to see good owners at work.

History repeats itself, as Karl Marx said, first as tragedy then as farce.
Yet another January disaster. Once again we have two respected but costly players, this time Robbo and Givet, still on the books but whom the manager isn't going to pick. All that dead wood, signed by Kean largely but also the summer dead wood was also signed by Shabby has put some dosh in agents' pockets, unfortunately the FA are too busy themselves trying to say on the gravy train to mount an enquiry.
Did anyone notice that the Admiral Nelsen, who was not fit to play according to Keano, was given a guard of honour by his team mates and cheered off the field by the fans for his last game at QPR ? What a disgace that our owners and management didn't give Ryan the chance for a similar well-earned send off.
I've taken a lot, but the news that Myles Anderson has been moved out, is the last straw - we'll never make in to Europe now.

We were told very clearly several weeks BEFORE the window not to expect players to be bought, and that any inquiries as to Charlie Austin would be rebuffed. Our board didn't lie to us. That's what has happened - no players in, and offers for Austin rebuffed. According to SSNews, (so pinch of salt maybe...) 2 bids in the £6.5 to £7 million area rebuffed, from QPR and Notts Forrest. So how competent and truthful were your board?
So next year he will be unable to command a fee and will leave for nothing, Superb, its great to see good owners at work. We had the same situation with Hoilett, but because he was under 23 we got a substantial fee for him even though he ran his contract to nothing. Oh, but hang on, Charlie is over 23!!! Looks like he runs it down and leaves for nothing then. Well done agent polish lad with unpronounceable name, who claims he's a real Burnley fan and comes from lancashire.
Charlie Austin has 18 months left on his contract, and is in the process of negotiating a contract extension. He's on record as saying he's more than happy to stay at Turf Moor.
Don't be tight Masher let them have something to hang on to as their club has left them with nothing (again!).
.
Yes Jarrod, Austin is going to leave on a free transfer in 18 months. Oh dear, what are the poor Dingles going to do!

There's no difference, The club is Venkys. You are supporting Venkys by your presence

You've watched them tear the club apart and sell everything off yet still watch them do it.

Another twelve months like this and there'll be no one left on the pitch to cheer except the ball boys.

Keep up the good work.

The only departure I think we may miss is Rochina, his creativity and flair had its uses. Vukcevic, Formica, Rosado, Linganzi and Slew were never in Appleton's plans, hence them not being named in the team sheet for the past 2 matches.

However not to have signed the two players when they had been at Brockhall for a good chunk of the day is just diabolic. Campbell should of been signed much earlier, both players had even signed the papers!

I'm beyond holding everyone ransom to the past 2 years, it get's us nowhere, but this was just a joke.

Thank god for the loan market in a weeks time.
Loan market? nobodys coming in .What makes you think anybodys coming in.

Truly unbelievable that the two players and their contracts were not sorted first before we got rid of yet more players.
Our squad is looking more and more bare-thread by the day.
We now have no established right midfielder at the club.
We have no creativity, pace or play maker in the middle of the park.
We have no real cover at centre back.
And any established pro's we have left at our club do not want to be here (Pedersen, Ollson, Robinson, Givet). It's ok getiting rid of the so called "dead wood" but you have to make sure you replace it first.
I feel sorry for Appleton as he knew we needed to ship a few players out of the door but he probably asked to get three or four in.
But yet again, Coco (Shaw) and his merry clowns (Venky's) have managed to let us, "The Payers and supporters" down again.
I fear administration within two to three seasons.

So why hang around here whining like grumpy old men then?

Surely even dedicating the time to read about, post comments about VENKYS OWNED ROVERS should be a slight to your judgement as its giving succour VENKYS ROVERS.

Unlike the other deluded morons who believe Venkys will simply "leave" everyone else with a brain realises that if they were ever to do so, they would sell every bit off it off to developers and not the silly deluded BRSIT who think raising a few thousand will get the club back.

Times have changed, either support the team and ignore the politics in the background or come to the realisation that the Rovers you knew is gone and move on ffs.

Venkys arent rentign Rovers, they own i LOCK STOCK and BARREL thannks to greedy lechs that destroyed one man's legacy for a quick buck.

There are thousands like us, with hundreds of years of watching BRFC between us, to some not going (having a mind of your own) is like you are insane, its just a personal choice end off, no need for name calling or slagging off fan against fan just a personal choice, the club is being run by idiots IMO and my choice is to stay away, still support the manager but stay away and yes this can be done until sanity returns.
Venkys are trash, they treat the fans like trash, again IMO they are still assett stripping of our club, millions taken out peauts put back in.

We're knows as the worst supporters in the UK at the moment - boo-ing when Yakubu scored a goal and went over to Keano, boo-ing managers, absentee fans pretending they were only boycotting until Kean left and now claim they wont return until Venkys leave (which is never).

The very fact that you're on here despising and accusing those that go is proof enough you still follow Venkys owned Rovers, either on the radio, Sky Sports.. its all payment to the masters one way or another - the only thing you're not giving it SUPPORT to the team that needs it.

You are therefore no longer supporters, and as such your opinons are as valid to me as the the dingles.

Anyone seen the Steve Bruce interview on D J Campbell ? (BBC Football) Bruce exonerates Rovers (not too sure of that myself) and I know we are signing D J as a footballer not a figure of moral integrity, but what a classic example of the low, greedy, shabby nature of modern football. It's bad enough when the likes of Balotelli play the prima donna, but he at least is a player of genius but when third raters play the trecherous superstar, it makes you weep or the future of the game.
Just the kind of example for our youngsters we don't want, and soon to be playing in front of the Brian Douglas and Ronnie Clayton stands, talk about Ronnie turning in his grave.

Showing your true colours then Darrener, as you dont go, just like Harwood St
Not supporters then are you
Those of us that go and continue to go are supporting our Club not the owners. We want Rovers to continue and be there when Venkys go, unlike your kind who want Rovers to fail and go bankrupt.
Only Dingles would want that, ahh that could be it...
Lowlifes like you make me angry, you have not got the guts to admit you are not Rovers fans, get a life
" Those of us that go and continue to go are supporting our Club not the owners."

There's no difference, The club is Venkys. You are supporting Venkys by your presence

You've watched them tear the club apart and sell everything off yet still watch them do it.

Another twelve months like this and there'll be no one left on the pitch to cheer except the ball boys.

Keep up the good work.
go blow yourself HSB.

We are SUPPORTERS.

You are MOANERS

end of.
And you go and blow yourself.

Truly unbelievable that the two players and their contracts were not sorted first before we got rid of yet more players.
Our squad is looking more and more bare-thread by the day.
We now have no established right midfielder at the club.
We have no creativity, pace or play maker in the middle of the park.
We have no real cover at centre back.
And any established pro's we have left at our club do not want to be here (Pedersen, Ollson, Robinson, Givet). It's ok getiting rid of the so called "dead wood" but you have to make sure you replace it first.
I feel sorry for Appleton as he knew we needed to ship a few players out of the door but he probably asked to get three or four in.
But yet again, Coco (Shaw) and his merry clowns (Venky's) have managed to let us, "The Payers and supporters" down again.
I fear administration within two to three seasons.

WHY NO STATEMENT FROM EWOOD

Surely the supporters not to mention the Manager and Players deserve to be told the truth about yet another debacle to hit the club. What exactly does it say to plaeyrs willing to join Rovers when this happens

Time for LT and AC to put his tweeting down and get down to Ewood and Brockhall asap and prove they are a paper worth buying.

Until the facts are known it is difficuly to know who to blame but Venkys and their PR Machine must realise the damage this is doing - a can of worms for every day of the week

I am utterly depressed by this. SV and RR were two of our most creative players.

I agreed with Wes Thomas and DJ because they are the sort of players that can get you promoted, but without them or SV and RR, we look seriously week in midfield.

Ruben is one of the most talented players to wear the shirt for a few years, yet he's been punted out - madness.

I just hope Dunny gets back up to speed or it's Championship football, at the very best, next season.

We could have easily added Bently and Warnock and we'd have all be satisfied.

Well said !!!! thankfully us long term supporters have our memories of some great times following our beloved Rovers. I do not want to taint that by going down to Ewood to watch the pathetic excuse of a club that is Venkys Blackburn Rovers.
So why hang around here whining like grumpy old men then?

Surely even dedicating the time to read about, post comments about VENKYS OWNED ROVERS should be a slight to your judgement as its giving succour VENKYS ROVERS.

Unlike the other deluded morons who believe Venkys will simply "leave" everyone else with a brain realises that if they were ever to do so, they would sell every bit off it off to developers and not the silly deluded BRSIT who think raising a few thousand will get the club back.

Times have changed, either support the team and ignore the politics in the background or come to the realisation that the Rovers you knew is gone and move on ffs.

Venkys arent rentign Rovers, they own i LOCK STOCK and BARREL thannks to greedy lechs that destroyed one man's legacy for a quick buck.

FACT.
This is an open forum for comments and opinions about Blackburn Rovers. Whether you are pro-Venkys ownership and wish to say how good of a job they are doing or if you are against Venkys ownership and wish to say how poorly you think they are doing. We are all entitled to post our opinions which ever side of the fence you belong too. Does not mean you have to agree with me and I do not have to agree with you but we all have a right to our say

None whatsoever. This club just continues to spiral endlessly down the pan.

Yes, I've been moaning for the past two years because I could see what's been going on.
During the last FIVE transfer windows Venkys have spent nothing and at the same time have sold or forced out all of our best players and left us with not much more than a squad of Portuguese reserves. Why ?

It's bad enough when the likes of Balotelli play the prima donna, but he at least is a player of genius but when third raters play the trecherous superstar, it makes you weep or the future of the game.
Just the kind of example for our youngsters we don't want, and soon to be playing in front of the Brian Douglas and Ronnie Clayton stands, talk about Ronnie turning in his grave.
Haven't seen it yet but I am pretty sure that Andy Cryer tweeted last night that one of the two players, could have been Campbell, wanted, or was offered £4.5 million for a 3.5 year contract.

Don't know if that's true or not but if it is it's ridiculous money for someone who is in effect nothing more than a journeyman Championship player.

Perhaps we have got off lightly.

We are where we are my head is not in the sand on the contrary it's very much in the real world how do you think negativity will help or are you just moaning?
Yes, I've been moaning for the past two years because I could see what's been going on. During the last FIVE transfer windows Venkys have spent nothing and at the same time have sold or forced out all of our best players and left us with not much more than a squad of Portuguese reserves. Why ? If you haven't had your head in the sand explain what YOU think has been going on.
I asked you 2 questions, how you tink negativity will help? an are you justmoaning?...You answered neither?
Oh hello. It's back.
Same old story give them a chance - just wait while the summer no money for signings - they are conning you and thousands of others , whilst I very much admire your loyalty I think you are foolish to have faith.
Appleton is a yes man , if that had hapened to me I would have had the guts to resign. It will only end in heartbreak for him and his family.Never has a club wanted fresh faces than this transfer window.

I am hoping to win the Euromillions and buy this club and run it in a proper manner. And yes with the support we get we are no more than a mid table championship side - that is now the reality. At least we might be able to get some pride back in this once well run club and not continue to be a laughing stock.
Rovers fans need to grow some big ones and start to stand up to these owners - that is the only way to get rid of them. Believe me the players aren't bothered about this club - the supporters are the only hope. And if the Venky's leave and we go to League 1 and League 2 so what? Watching a team that may have some passion would be way better than the dross that has been served up at Ewood for years.
Stop going to games at Ewood - just go to away games - believe me Venkys PR advisers will get them to leave when the crowds are less than 5,000. By going to home games you are supporting this regime of cluelessness and lining of pockets. In the end by your actions you will get the club you deserve.

Anyone seen the Steve Bruce interview on D J Campbell ?

It's bad enough when the likes of Balotelli play the prima donna, but he at least is a player of genius but when third raters play the trecherous superstar, it makes you weep or the future of the game.
Just the kind of example for our youngsters we don't want, and soon to be playing in front of the Brian Douglas and Ronnie Clayton stands, talk about Ronnie turning in his grave.
Haven't seen it yet but I am pretty sure that Andy Cryer tweeted last night that one of the two players, could have been Campbell, wanted, or was offered £4.5 million for a 3.5 year contract.

Don't know if that's true or not but if it is it's ridiculous money for someone who is in effect nothing more than a journeyman Championship player.

Perhaps we have got off lightly.
If this is true God help us and football - I remember Ian Holloway once said D j Cambell was holding him to ransom thats why he joined Ipswich last year instead of going back to Blackpool. Good player can score goals but seems he is a mercenary. Why didnt we go for Matt Derbyshire or Paul Gallagher at least they would have had heart.

Appleton is a yes man , if that had hapened to me I would have had the guts to resign. It will only end in heartbreak for him and his family.Never has a club wanted fresh faces than this transfer window.
are u smelly in disguise (again)?

Michael Appleton will prove his worth and has already got off to a great start sorting out the wheat from the chaff in his squad.

The bloke only had 13 days of the window left after he joined to assess the current squad, sort through all the contracts and decide who he wanted out and who he wanted to come in.

Personally I think he did a very good job of it and the fact that someone at the club screwed-up the admin side of it no way reflects on Appleton.

As both players are expected to still sign for us on loan during the next week it isnt really a tragedy is it?

We are still in with a sound chance of making the play-offs the way the team, are playing and with these two new additions then that makes the chance all the more real.

No heartbreak for MA at Ewood, The only ones with broken hearts will be the doom merchants and false posters who magnify every little thing that happens at Ewood into something tragic - when actually this sort of stuff happens at most clubs all the time too.

More joy to come on Saturday when it will be the third time we beat Bristol City this season - shame we cant play em every week!

What MA needed most wasn't the support of the fans but the support of the owners to start the rebuilding of the team with 'his' own players rather than the ones bought by K#$n. There are glaring shortcomings in the team which nonsense such as 'lets keep behind the team' and 'positive momentum' cannot begin to address. This was the last transfer window before season-ticket renewals go out, what 'positive' message does this offer the fans or MA for next season?
None whatsoever. This club just continues to spiral endlessly down the pan.

If the "head in the sand brigade " can't see what they are "supporting " now., they never will do.
We are where we are my head is not in the sand on the contrary it's very much in the real world how do you think negativity will help or are you just moaning?
Yes, I've been moaning for the past two years because I could see what's been going on.
During the last FIVE transfer windows Venkys have spent nothing and at the same time have sold or forced out all of our best players and left us with not much more than a squad of Portuguese reserves. Why ?

good answer french, keep the faith and believe - that way we'll never have the broken hearts, the daft thing is its the 'doom merchants' that already seem to have one.

For once i have agree with my fellow BRFC supporters.Why did BRFC fail to sign the two players last night ,i was with my laptop all night thinkingThomas and DJ Campbell has already sign by 11pm deadline .
Appleton ,shaw and Agnew please explain why BRFC failed to sign those two players by 11pm deadline ? Brfc team were at it since morning.
Venky must spend or sell up , QPR is owned by two Indians ,Laxmi MIttal is richest man in UK worth £17.5 Billion and before the transfer deadline he has signed Samba and Jenas.
Singh and Hendry should be sacked.
Shaw and Agnew must get their act together and tell the fans the truth did the deal fell through or was it blocked by VENKYS to cut wage bills.
Why was Rochina loaned out before DJ Cambell and Thomas deal was signed before 11pm transfer deadline.
My blood is boiling now it's about time the truth come out of the boardroom.
Venky did say there are more funds avaliable for transfer for Mr Appleton.
Venky promised to look after BRFC with more funds avaiable for players so they must live up to that promises.
Walkers sold BRFC because the club was loosing money and left debts of £25 million so they wanted foreign billionaire to buy BRFC .
Venkys new BRFC investments was not good for business but just for love of sport.Venkys are business people and if they are in it for money please sell up BRFC because you will let the people down in Blackburn/Darwen who had high hopes that beloved BRFC will get lot of money for top class players and win trophies like late Jack Walker did in 1990 to 2000.

Yet another PR disaster for BRFC (as we knew it).

Every opportunity to get the supporters back on side goes belly-up at Ewood under the Venky's! How can they be so consistently unprofessional?

Oh I forgot, they know nothing about football...

How it shows!
To be fair, I don't think Venkys are directly to blame for this ****-up. More down to the fact that we now have incompetant admin staff. Although I suppose it was Venkys fault that good people (John Williams, Tom Finn, etc) left in the first place. I do think that the Manager should not be blamed and that he and the team should get the full support of the fans now. Just my view although I know there will be some who will not agree and that's their right I suppose.

I was having a good day today until I heard the new signings had fallen through, I could cry, Is it possible that we can still get these players on loan?
I really thought we were going to start moving up the table and even have a small chance of making the play offs but having read most of the blogs on here tonight im totally gutted, can anyone cheer me up with some good news?
Either way I will still be there tomorrow in the Blackburn end cheering my team on, I do trust Appleton and really believe he can get a good squad of players at Ewood and make them proud to wear the blue and white shirt.
COYB....Cant wait for the game tomorrow!!!

Well said !!!! thankfully us long term supporters have our memories of some great times following our beloved Rovers. I do not want to taint that by going down to Ewood to watch the pathetic excuse of a club that is Venkys Blackburn Rovers.
So why hang around here whining like grumpy old men then?

Surely even dedicating the time to read about, post comments about VENKYS OWNED ROVERS should be a slight to your judgement as its giving succour VENKYS ROVERS.

Unlike the other deluded morons who believe Venkys will simply "leave" everyone else with a brain realises that if they were ever to do so, they would sell every bit off it off to developers and not the silly deluded BRSIT who think raising a few thousand will get the club back.

Times have changed, either support the team and ignore the politics in the background or come to the realisation that the Rovers you knew is gone and move on ffs.

Venkys arent rentign Rovers, they own i LOCK STOCK and BARREL thannks to greedy lechs that destroyed one man's legacy for a quick buck.

FACT.
This is an open forum for comments and opinions about Blackburn Rovers. Whether you are pro-Venkys ownership and wish to say how good of a job they are doing or if you are against Venkys ownership and wish to say how poorly you think they are doing. We are all entitled to post our opinions which ever side of the fence you belong too. Does not mean you have to agree with me and I do not have to agree with you but we all have a right to our say
According to some... You haven't.
You're entitled to your opinion even though it makes you lower than a dingle when you agree with someone accusing true supporters of the team of lining Venkys pockets for attending games, when you hypocrites will happily sit their on the radio, sky and whatever medium listening and watching the game in your armchairs ready with another armful of pitiful excuses why you havent returned and how you've been going since football was invented but wont return until Venky's leave knowing full well they won't.

The fact is, no matter how bad things were, or what league we were in back then, the club is in its biggest crisis in its history and the team need us now more than ever to prevent further decline into oblivion, but you glory tasted fanboys prefer to stay away and call us who have never stopped attending for standing tall and supporting the team when it needs us most.

Now you have every right to do so, but don't sit there at your keyboard calling the true fans because your deluded fantasies of boycotting the club to cause Venky's to fold and walk away - of course handing the keys to BRSIT for 10k rupees as a gesture of good will - is being hampered by the true supporters obstinant stance to keep SUPPORTING.

Yes Darener, HSB and co. you have your opinion and a right to express it. If you're going to insult true supporters who are trying their best to ensure that the club doesn't end up in administration by getting behind the squad and doing what true supporters are supposed to do, then expect to be treated with the same contempt as the dingle keyboard warriors.

We have enough to contend with from the media, dingles and the circus behind us without you absentees in your warm cosy armchairs having a pop at us.

What MA needed most wasn't the support of the fans but the support of the owners to start the rebuilding of the team with 'his' own players rather than the ones bought by K#$n. There are glaring shortcomings in the team which nonsense such as 'lets keep behind the team' and 'positive momentum' cannot begin to address. This was the last transfer window before season-ticket renewals go out, what 'positive' message does this offer the fans or MA for next season?
None whatsoever. This club just continues to spiral endlessly down the pan. If the "head in the sand brigade " can't see what they are "supporting " now., they never will do.
We are where we are my head is not in the sand on the contrary it's very much in the real world how do you think negativity will help or are you just moaning?
Yes, I've been moaning for the past two years because I could see what's been going on. During the last FIVE transfer windows Venkys have spent nothing and at the same time have sold or forced out all of our best players and left us with not much more than a squad of Portuguese reserves. Why ? If you haven't had your head in the sand explain what YOU think has been going on.
I asked you 2 questions, how you tink negativity will help? an are you justmoaning?...You answered neither?
Oh hello. It's back.
Same old story give them a chance - just wait while the summer no money for signings - they are conning you and thousands of others , whilst I very much admire your loyalty I think you are foolish to have faith. Appleton is a yes man , if that had hapened to me I would have had the guts to resign. It will only end in heartbreak for him and his family.Never has a club wanted fresh faces than this transfer window.
Graham, do I know you ? Oozebooth ?
Yes olly manisco - who are u
Hello Graham, Bob of the Eaves bros.

Probably Venkys wouldn't sanction the move. They're cutting and running, not spending. Never have done and won't do.
Yes, you are 100% correct. That is apart from £8 million for Rhodes plus wages, £3 million for Best plus wages and in excess of £2 million a year in wages to Murphy, Etuhu, Gomes etc. You lot are so deluded it is frightening.
And don't forget the money spent on Etuhu in the first place.

Similarly don't forget they only spent about £4m up front for Rhodes; a large part of the rest will only be paid if we get back into the PL and let's face it, that just ain't going to happen. Oh, and don't forget the £20m+ profit on transfers last year.

The thing is they don't know what they're doing, as the song goes. I am with you in respect of them not asset stripping or skimming money off the top; the top of what? They've made a net loss of about £14m in two years, despite the above mentioned £20m profit on transfers. The club is still £20m in debt - something Kean (on behalf of Venkys) said it wasn't as making the club debt free was something the owners had to do.

They didn't have to do it and, more to the point, haven't.

They tried to save money when they had it now they're spending it when they haven't. Posters on here often come out with the phrase "you couldn't make it up"; problem is, you don't have to.

Your one hypocritical poster. One moment goin on about Indian millionaires being the saving grace of the uk and football, then next giving them a kick and slagging them off after after all that has been posted about their obvious leadershership frailties and poor management of his great club. Get a grip! For once I can't blame them for this, choose what side of the fence you sit on and stick o it, or sod off with your poor input!
Look you Blackburn supporter it was our Walker family sold our family silver don't blame me. All the English Sugar Daddies are selling up all English football clubs to foreign Billionaires . Fulham Arab Billionaire MR Mohamed AL - Fayed QPR Indian Laxmi Mittal UK'S richest man worth £17.5 billion Man City Arab Seikh Chelsea Russian Billionaire Abromovich Blackburn Rovers Venkys Indian BIllionaires Leeds Utd Arab Bllionaires Cardiff City Chinese Billionaires Hull City Arab man worth £400 million Nottingham Forrest Arabs Millionaires Watford Italian Millionaires Leicester City Thai Millionaire Birmingham City Chinese Millionaires Man Utd American Jews Liverpool American Billionaire Arsenal American/Arab/Englis h consortium Derby County Canadian/American Consortium Sothampton Swiss Billionaire Aston Villa American Millionaire So all these foreign guys are saving grace of the UK and and football so i am not an hypocrite.We all live in a global economy so if MG Rover is owned by Chinaman and Land Rover/Jaguar,Corus,T etley Tea,Northern Foods,Euro Garages,New Look,Poundsrecher,B&
amp; M Stores are owned by Indians ,it's called global economy.They speak English In INdia and red colour post boxes and red colour double decker buses in Mumbai India and they have steam trains all over India left by the British.
Irrelevant, irrelevant, irrelevant, irrelevant, irrelevant; will you stop banging on about how much money everyone has? I mean, who gives a flying f@ck?

Whatever the reasons were for the Walker Trust wanting to sell up, they were fed a line by Venkys. Venkys made commitments regarding what they were going to do and their plans for the club; commitments they have failed to honour, without exception.

Being a top neurosurgeon does not automatically a great plasterer make; in the same way running a successful poultry business doesn't give you the devine right to be able to run a business in a totally unrelated industry.

I couldn't care less about the nationality or personal wealth of the owners; they can be from the planet Zog and not own a pot to p!$$ in for all I care as long they run the club responsibly, competently and honestly.

Venkys are none of those; they lied when they bought it and have been inept in running it, end of.
