Rovers striker Dean Rittenberg inspires England win over Germany

SUPER-SUB Dean Rittenberg scored with his first touch and then set up the winner as England U18s came from behind to beat Germany U18s 2-1 at the New York Stadium in Rotherham.

The Blackburn Rovers striker, 17, headed the Three Lions level seconds after being introduced as a 74th-minute substitute in last night’s clash.

Eight minutes later and Rittenberg, who scored on his England U18s debut in February, turned provider for fellow sub Harry Winks to settle a match which was played in front of 9,119 supporters

AT LAST A PRESS OFFICER
Blackburn Rovers have a new Director of Communications, Press Officer to you and me. The first since the dismissal of Paul Agnew some two years ago.
Alan Myers (pic above) has been in the job since March. Formerly with Everton, Alan says “it is his job to communicate to the fans. Its about engaging with the fans and its about engaging inside the club as well, because communications are both external and internal. My main priority will be to try and get the Rovers fans talking to us and talking to them”.
Asked how aware were he of the events that have gone on at Ewood for the last couple of years, Alan replied” I worked for Sky Sports before I moved to Everton last summer and I did have a quite a close association with the club because I was Sky Sports North West Bureau Chief and Blackburn was one of the clubs I monitored for Sky Sports News. I obviously saw what happened and saw how things changed at Ewood and it was really quite sad to be honest, because I always felt that Blackburn was a proper football club, with great tradition, great history, great fans and great people around the place. And I always loved coming here. My job here is not to look into the past and what went wrong, although it will be disrespectful of me to tell the fans to forget what’s happened, but I believe in looking forward.
This club should not be where it is and I think the will of everyone here – the owners, the manager, the players, the staff and the supporters – is to get this club back into the Premier League”.
Fine sentiments from our new press officer but if he wants to realy know what has gone on since that dark day when Allardyce was sacked on 13-12-2010. Log on to www.regoftherovers.c
o.uk and scroll back the last four years.
Although I know it is not his brief to resurrect the past, apologies are still needed from Mrs Anuradha Desai and her brothers for their mismanagement and ruination of a fine football club.
Questions need answering before we can move forward.
• Why was Allardyce sacked?
• Why were two of the game’s best administrators, John Williams and Tom Finn allowed to go? Was their departure instigated by agent/advisor Jerome Anderson?
• Who appointed the disastrous Steve Kean?
• Why unprecedented protest by fans wanting Kean sacked totally ignored?
• Why are banners and drums still banned from Ewood Park?
• Did Jerome Anderson run Blackburn Rovers and make day to day decisions for over two years as indicated by RT. Hon Jack Straw MP, the club’s Honorary Vice President.
• Why was Kean and Anderson allowed to sign so many below average players on high salaries and long contract’s. Who authorised this?

I could go on and on and I know that my persistence in these matters annoy some people. But history tells us you ignore the past at your peril because if you do, it will all happen again.
Only the owners can explain these issues and some ‘Humble Pie’ from Mrs Anuradha Desai is long overdue.
On a lighter note it would not go a miss if our new Director Communications (Press Officer) could attempt to get the Rovers more coverage in the National Press. Daily Mail in particular.
Good luck in your new job Alan, working for the Venky’s you will need it. Just ask Paul Agnew.

Hi Frenchie
Yes he does look a good un and hopefully he will be given a chance and not palmed out on loan and lost forever. This is the sort of young player that we should be encouraging instead of buying or bringing in a lot of same as players.
We need a sort out and keep the ones who have proved more than useful as we have the makings of decent tem for next season with just a couple of defenders needed. I am sure that GB knows this but we still need to look after
anyone coming through our system.

1) Allardyce sacked because of irregularities involving transfer deals with his agent son, plus crap style of football.

2) Biggest mistake, but William's wife was very ill and he did not wish to work full time. Venkys were willing to be guided by Jerome Anderson who had brokered their purchase of the club.

3) Jerome anderson appointed Steve Kean.

4) Owners never take any notice of protest made by a small minority of fans.

5) Banners and drums are banned because they are a bloody nuisance to the rest of us fans.

6) Yes, Jerome anderson did run the club.

7) Jerome Anderson authorised the huge salaries because he benefited from them.

Venkys will never apologise for taking over a club in huge debt and putting 2 millions pounds a month into the club to keep it going.

Now get a life Reg, move on and stop pi---ng everybody off.

Although I know it is not his brief to resurrect the past, apologies are still needed from Mrs Anuradha Desai and her brothers for their mismanagement and ruination of a fine football club. Questions need answering before we can move forward. • Why was Allardyce sacked? • Why were two of the game’s best administrators, John Williams and Tom Finn allowed to go? Was their departure instigated by agent/advisor Jerome Anderson? • Who appointed the disastrous Steve Kean? • Why unprecedented protest by fans wanting Kean sacked totally ignored? • Why are banners and drums still banned from Ewood Park? • Did Jerome Anderson run Blackburn Rovers and make day to day decisions for over two years as indicated by RT. Hon Jack Straw MP, the club’s Honorary Vice President. • Why was Kean and Anderson allowed to sign so many below average players on high salaries and long contract’s. Who authorised this? I could go on and on and I know that my persistence in these matters annoy some people. But history tells us you ignore the past at your peril because if you do, it will all happen again. Only the owners can explain these issues and some ‘Humble Pie’ from Mrs Anuradha Desai is long overdue. On a lighter note it would not go a miss if our new Director Communications (Press Officer) could attempt to get the Rovers more coverage in the National Press. Daily Mail in particular. Good luck in your new job Alan, working for the Venky’s you will need it. Just ask Paul Agnew. Reg. www.regoftherovers.c o.uk[/p][/quote]1) Allardyce sacked because of irregularities involving transfer deals with his agent son, plus crap style of football. 2) Biggest mistake, but William's wife was very ill and he did not wish to work full time. Venkys were willing to be guided by Jerome Anderson who had brokered their purchase of the club. 3) Jerome anderson appointed Steve Kean. 4) Owners never take any notice of protest made by a small minority of fans. 5) Banners and drums are banned because they are a bloody nuisance to the rest of us fans. 6) Yes, Jerome anderson did run the club. 7) Jerome Anderson authorised the huge salaries because he benefited from them. Venkys will never apologise for taking over a club in huge debt and putting 2 millions pounds a month into the club to keep it going. Now get a life Reg, move on and stop pi---ng everybody off.[/p][/quote]Excellent post RoverSwiss, correct on every point including the fact that Reg is p!ss!ng everybody off. Reg, please keep your puerile ravings about old news to your own tawdry little site and stop posting your dross all over these pages.[/p][/quote]Seconded. owd nick
