Blackburn Rovers protests to be postponed

Lancashire Telegraph: PROTESTS Sections of Rovers fans have demonstrated PROTESTS Sections of Rovers fans have demonstrated

ALL organised protests at Ewood Park for the crucial next two Premier League home games have been postponed after organisers claimed to have made progress in their bid for improved communications with the club.

A section of supporters have protested against manager Steve Kean and owners Venky’s since early September but organiser Glen Mullan has now reiterated yesterday’s calls in the Lancashire Telegraph for calm ahead of a crunch Ewood Park double header.

With Rovers languishing in the Premier League drop zone, organised protests over the past few months have included pre-match marches, post match sit ins and even a plane fly-over.

Supporters have even been in conflict with each other, as frustration at the club’s situation mounts, while co-owners Venkatesh and Balaji Rao left the Premier League visit to Wigan at half time after coming under heavy criticism before the match.

Mullan has been in talks with club officials in a bid to bring an end to the Ewood hostilities and, ahead of Saturday’s visit of West Brom, has told the Lancashire Telegraph it is time to call them to a halt.

This comes on the back of yesterday’s plea from two East Lancashire businessmen and lifelong Rovers fans, Ian Battersby and Wayne Wild, in the Lancashire Telegraph to stop the protests in a bid to make Venky’s feel able to come to the club to sort the current problems out.

Mullan said: “We are in advanced discussions with the club and we are very, very pleased with the progress that has been made. John Newsham and Paul Hunt’s attention to detail over the last couple of weeks has been exemplary.

“There will be no organised protests this weekend before, after or during the game. We are not cancelling the protests we are postponing them for the next two games, after discussions with the club and with Wayne Wild as well.

“We ask everyone to get behind the team for these two very winnable football matches. Six points is the most important thing, while we remain committed to trying to open up lines of communication with the club for the fans that can stay there for a long time.

“We want a line of communication that will be permanently open.”

Concerns remain over Rovers’ Premier League future with question marks hanging over whether Venky’s are ready to invest in the January transfer window.

Fans are also frustrated at the lack of communication from Venky’s over the past few months but all hope this proposed period of calm will provide a suitable atmosphere to start putting things right “We want fans to be the club’s 12th man for the next two games,” said Mullan. “I need to assure supporters we are not selling them out. This is a postponement as we remain fully committed to seeing out what we started. We are still committed to the cause.

“The supporters who have been protesting, the councillors, Wayne Wild, Ian Battersby, everyone who has raised their concerns in recent weeks have been working for the same goal, and we fully appreciate everything everyone has been doing.

“The protest organisers would also like to make a personal apology to Jason Roberts for the chants heard during the last protest, it was not in the spirit of why we were protesting.”

Looks like Glen feels included in the higher ups at Rovers and dosen't want to upset his new pals.

I don't Glen really speaks for the protesters, we'll still be chanting KEAN OUT for 90 mins.

understand the reasoning behind this decision but dont forget there is a two edged sword in that the sponsors etc also have a vested interest in that it is embarrassing for their guests to see protests etc etc and it does not change the fact that we are urgently in need of a 'New' Manager Kean is not up to the job and we should not let him 'off the hook' equally it would be totally wrong to allow him to spend any funds that may be available in the transfer window - in any event we still have to see if the 'Venky's' put their money where their mouth is - my views have not changed - second rate Manager with second rate Owners!!!

I was at the last protest and although JR has been poor for the last couple of years he didn't deserve the personal abuse directed at him.

Kean however had the perfect opportunity to unite the fans after the Swansea game, but chose to ridicule and dismiss them, as he has done for most of his tenure.

I agree with Glen the fans must be united, but can't help but feel that we are being sold down the river by incompetent owners, a poor managment structure and inferior players when compared to last years squad.

Hopefully the atmopshere within the stadium will be good, and we will see a couple of wins.

But nothing alters the FACT that Mr Kean is nowhere near being a premiership manager and his remarks and treatment of the fans have been abysmal and shocking.

Ok this is it, last chance saloon for the Venky's. They have two games to prove to all the Venky/Kean haters that they mean business. Let them come to the games and stand up to be counted. Let them explain what they are going to do in the January window to pull the Rovers out of the mess they have created. Let them issue an apology to all the fans for showing such plain ignorance in the running of our famous club. What we want now is a firm committment from them to use as much money as is neccessary to get us out of this dreadful mess.
AS for Saturday's match....
GET INTO EM!!!!!

The Venkys and Kean are separate issues and have been all along for most fans. That explains why most of the protests were not well supported but the "Kean Out" chant was joined in by thousands in the ground.
.
Its important the focus does not move away from "Kean Out" this month or we are relegated.

You seem to have a series of pathetic comments on this blog, but this is just stupid. I live in Leicester, I have supported Rovers since 1954, and had a season ticket for many many years since then and almost certainly for more than the number of years you have been alive. Even though I work many weekends now I still travel as often as physically possible to watch them. You think I am a traitor and an outsider, OK, whatever, as they say nowadays. It probably costs me more to go to a match than you spend getting there all season, that's my choice, but don't think you can tell me my opinions don't count and I am a traitor and an outsider. I will resist calling you the names I think you should be called, but will suggest you occasionally bring your few brain cells into active use before you post a series of pathetic comments.

Before everyone flies of the handle, all that has been done here, is we have decided not to have "ORGANISED" Protest for the next two home games, and this has been done as we have requested certain things which has been agreed with the club, including a full meeting with the board, The club has agreed these things we have asked for. However this does not take anyone's right to protest away, all it means is we won't be telling people what they should or should not do. Supporters will make their own minds up come saturday what they wish to do before, during and after. Every supporter is in charge of themselves and also in charge of their own conduct. Previously any offences committed Simon and I would have been also bang to rights after accepting responsibility in writing. Many people have said they will protest how they want and without instruction and also without obstruction. Protest have not ended, the only change is, we won't have any organised for the match on Saturday.

I think JR deserves the abuse he gets. He comes out in support of the manager because he knows no other manager will pay him that much to play at this level. He's the master at fooling people who know bugger all about football that he puts effort in to his play. One of my good mates is a PL defender and he was saying against Rovers they're told "If Roberts is coming towards you he'll back out of making the tackle. Don't panic at all and take your time". And to add insult to injury he's always on at the ref f'ing and jeffing. He's been sent off 3 times on the last day of the season for trivial things - case of ref's revenge maybe? I've no time for people who draw a salary yet put no effort in.

Some stats for you...

- 3 tackles made this season (ave 1 every 146mins)

- 66.6% pass completion this season (worst of any Rovers forward) )

- This season matches 9 (4 as sub) shots on target 0 shots off target 4

- Touched the ball less often than any other player in EPL last season, once every 3.03mins

Get him out of our club and his massive wages off the books

A full meeting with Steve Kean this week with a group of supporters (This has to happen or all bets are off)
A Meeting next week with the Board,independently chaired, with people with influence away from BRFC also present. To answer the questions which have never been asked or answered which effect the long term future of the club.
There is a chain of command at Ewood and you have to go through every channel before you get to Venkys, and ultimatley we want Venkys to come over to Blackburn and explain to the supporters in person what they intend to do about this mess.
The Kean OUT issue will no doubt be dealt with by the supporters come saturday. However the clubs long term future and the answers we all seek won't be solved on the stands, this can only be solved by talking and actions from the owners

No doubt Walter Mitty will take the 'positives' out of this, and regard it as a personal victory over the protesters.
He can now tell the idiots in India, that the fans can see the progress that has been made over the last two games, with victory over the mighty Swansea, and a solid performance at Sunderland, only losing due to bad luck and a bad ref.
The idiots in India will feel justified in sticking by Walter Mitty, and realise he was 'right' all along, and that we are now on course for that top ten finish he's been promising. He may even get another pay rise out of it.

The next two games are winnable as have been two thirds of the games we have already played. Even if we did win the next two games, it would be of no consequence. We are already relegated. What we are fighting for now is the club itself and a structure and leadership to perform with a dergree of honour in the Championship. To be looking forward to repromotion is an unreal expectation at this juncture. We don't have owners with sufficient committment to achieve that. Keep protesting. We have nothing to lose at this point. We are goimg to be the only club in the history of league football to have vounteered themselves for relegation.

Well Glen , good luck with your meetings but remember the Fans/Protesters views regarding Kean we might have to put up with the Venky's but we ceratinly don't have to be put up with an idiot like Kean and I hope you tell him so!
Judge me on results after the August transfer window, take the positives out of the game, don't get the rub of the green, we deserved more - what a loud of tripe - our league position tells you just how conistant we have been and that Kean should have gone by now - we are looking at you to tell him so or you will loose all credability with Fans and Protesters alike!!!

i think the decision to postpone the protests is a good one. it shows a comittment to dialogue and negotiation and is to be applauded. will it make any difference - probably not.
clearly i largely disagree with the protests and certainly with the nature of many things that are said. but if people feel protests are a good way to get the opinion across then you could argue some amount of success. it appears a door to clear dialogue between the club and some of the fans has been opened.
however, we still have intransigent fans who will not be happy until their demands are met. that does not seem to me to be about sharing a common goal. that seems personal and childish.
so the club may not be being run exactly how you want it, but certain people have put themselves in the position of trying to change the club by buying it. whilst that is not an option open to most of us, we can't just hurl abuse if things don't go our way. let's get the talking started and move things forward as a group. that will be the basis of a successful club in the long term. both sides will have to give a little, but both will hopefully gain a lot.
i think the decision to postpone the protests is a good one. it shows a comittment to dialogue and negotiation and is to be applauded. will it make any difference - probably not. clearly i largely disagree with the protests and certainly with the nature of many things that are said. but if people feel protests are a good way to get the opinion across then you could argue some amount of success. it appears a door to clear dialogue between the club and some of the fans has been opened. however, we still have intransigent fans who will not be happy until their demands are met. that does not seem to me to be about sharing a common goal. that seems personal and childish. so the club may not be being run exactly how you want it, but certain people have put themselves in the position of trying to change the club by buying it. whilst that is not an option open to most of us, we can't just hurl abuse if things don't go our way. let's get the talking started and move things forward as a group. that will be the basis of a successful club in the long term. both sides will have to give a little, but both will hopefully gain a lot. fitz808

It seems to me Glen M is in a no-win situation.
He's been criticised for organising protests and now he's criticised for suggesting protests are postponed for the next two matches.
I haven't always agreed with his views, but at least they are articulate and well thought-out, unlike a lot of the poisonous dross that's posted on here.
Personally, I think he and the businessmen are going about it the right way.
You've got to remember the culture in India, which is based on respect - and before anyone jumps on this, I'm not suggesting Venkys have earned any respect, apart from the Ronnie Clayton stand - but constant foul-mouthed abuse is more likely to make them dig their heels in and ignore any protests.
Be respectful and polite (as hard as that could be) when dealing with Venkys and we may have a chance.
I'd bet my season ticket that Ian Battersby and the main stand sponsor didn't just wade in and start shouting and swearing at them. You've got to 'play the game', and in this case the game is 'respect'. It's a matter of treading carefully, putting arguments across in a forceful but reasonable manner, and not alienating any who could be wavering in their support of the present regime.

Fanaticism is a belief or behavior involving uncritical zeal, particularly for an extreme religious or political cause or in some cases sports, or with an obsessive enthusiasm for a pastime or hobby. Nowhere in the definition does it say anything about locality. If you live in Timbuktoo or the Outer Hebrides or indeed anywhere you can be a fan of Blackburn Rovers' and long may that continue, after all we need ALL the fans we can get. Now supporters of the Rovers that may well be a different thing. Does a supporter have to be local or can you be a supporter on the other side of the world?

What a utter load of rubbish. Our only two victories this season occurred on days of demos so doesn't seem to have effected the players. Was Glen responsible for the loss to Wolves and Everton? The protests were a product of the anger many felt, they weren't the cause of the anger. What killed our season was:
1. Kean not being a manager.
2. The summer transfers or lack of them before the Wolves match.

I have done business in India and the Sub continent phsyce is odd to our way of thinking. The norm is to agree and smile and politely listen and say yes even when they think NO!
In fact they condider it rude to say no to someones face and negitiating is always tricky because of this .
It is just a cultural fact of life and the Rao family reaction to the horrendous abuse and vilification is not suprising.
I am not defending their record, it is indefensible but we all need to recall that they were met with a negative reception from Day One.
CHICKENS ON HEADS RING A BELL anyone, chants of One Jack walker when they were being introduced?

Glen the approach makes sense to me. WhilstI have no issue with the Kean out campaign I believe that the most crucial issue for the club is the owner's intentions regarding financial backing. Despite what Kean says he has not been backed and the squad is far thinner and poorer than that which ended the season last year. Lets be realistic we need serious investment. If they are not prepared to provide such backing then who on earth of any quality would agree to replace Kean. We need to avoid smoke and mirrors they key question is what are they prepared to provide by way of transfer funds assuming there are no transfers out> Me smells a rat with the £10M. We could very well spend £10M but get say £15M in through selling Samba and Hoillet. This is exactly what happended in the summer when we got over £25M in and spend approach £10M on cheaper inferior players- the new Wayne Rooney, the new Dennis Irwin and the next Chris Smalling spring to mind.I remember wathcing Soccer saturday over the summer and Alan McInnally let slip that he was a mate of Kean's and that the bald one haad identified a list of quality players that he would like to bring to the club but the club would not authorise the fees. That is why we ended up at the 11th hour with the sh*** we ended up with.

I hope EVERYONE involved in this decision was:

a) born in Blackburn
b) lives in Blackburn

If not your views dont count as you are nothing more than an outsider and traitor to:

a) the team you should support
b) my grandad




What a truly moronic comment. All my family are from Blackburn, which in turn is why i support rovers, despite coming from Lancaster, and i have exactly the same right to support Blackburn Rovers as you. Ive been to away matches both in this country and abroad, and you telling me im not a proper fan. Not that i need justify myself too a jumped up gobshite like yourself.

the longer this nonsense of venkeys and kean carry on the quicker we are slipping into the championship, it's all fine and well
calling a truce and giving venkeys more time but come the next 3 games when we will be lucky to pick up 2 points and are rock bottom of the table at the start of new year and venkeys and kean are in charge and a few of our key players have been sold and not replaced , then what?


just imagine in the new year if yak got injured and we had roberts up front as a lone striker without samba and hoilett
doesn't bear thinking about especially with kean in charge i can see some crushing defeats ahead.

doesn't make sense that glenn has gone from anti kean and anti venkeys to lets get behind the club especially when performances and results are getting worse by the week. sounds like he has become another yes man to me!

for blackburn to survive IMO we need new owners, new manager, and to get rid of half the current squad that are not up to premiership standard and about 35mil to spend in january (however who the hell would want to come to this mess)

the next to games will be the final nails in the coffin IMO rather than the great escape! 2 points out of the next 3 games is my prediction which sound about right as we have been averaging less than a point a game and nothing has changed since other than performances and moral hitting rock bottom.

The hounds were released too early, damaging our season, well done Glen you have done a sterling job and contributed to the dire position we now find ourselves in! As for you telling people what to do and not do, or influence as it should more accurately be described, a word of advice - it is easy to stir up negative emotions, much more difficult (perhaps impossible) to replace them with positive ones. I would suggest also that you should consider trying to remove whatever responsibility you have taken on for other people’s actions, as you have no control over the thing you started at all.
What a utter load of rubbish. Our only two victories this season occurred on days of demos so doesn't seem to have effected the players. Was Glen responsible for the loss to Wolves and Everton? The protests were a product of the anger many felt, they weren't the cause of the anger. What killed our season was:
1. Kean not being a manager.
2. The summer transfers or lack of them before the Wolves match.
"It doesn't seem to have affected the players", we are 2nd bottom!
We've been in the bottom 3 on form EVER since Kean took over even BEFORE the demos.

The fundamental mistake was sacking Allerdyce - calling for Kean to be out in Sept was ridiculas and its got us nowhere - or have they sacked him? maybe i missed that.

No...the hounds were not released too early. Had Venkys sacked Kean at the end of last season - when they should have done - then we would not be languishing in the state we currently find ourselves in.
.
If Venkys are clueless about football and the Premier League then they needed to be told. They have ignored all the advice which has been afforded them over the last few months and the situation has now become far, far worse.
.
Your statements are pathetic!

A full meeting with Steve Kean this week with a group of supporters (This has to happen or all bets are off) A Meeting next week with the Board,independently chaired, with people with influence away from BRFC also present. To answer the questions which have never been asked or answered which effect the long term future of the club. There is a chain of command at Ewood and you have to go through every channel before you get to Venkys, and ultimatley we want Venkys to come over to Blackburn and explain to the supporters in person what they intend to do about this mess. The Kean OUT issue will no doubt be dealt with by the supporters come saturday. However the clubs long term future and the answers we all seek won't be solved on the stands, this can only be solved by talking and actions from the owners
I think the approach and compromise you've reached is sensible Glen and I'm behind you. However you have to go in to these meetings with the central aim of Kean Out. I would say with the fans this is how your success will be judged, regardless of any practical long-term solutions implemented.
I'm in agreement too about this truce by glen and co, doesn't mean the rest of us fans have signed up to this, my voice will be loud and heard on Saturday for the team and for Kean to get out of our club.
Also well done glen and co who else has got this close to some home truths.
One last point glen be careful don't look directly into his eyes he will brainwash you and you'll come back to us putting a positive spin on everything and certainly don't accept a drink off him it will probably be spiked, but please when your firing all your questions at him and he starts mumbling like a chimp take out a big stick and start poking him and don't stop till he breaks down and says I can't take this anymore I'm not a celebrity now get me out of hear lol

Previously any offences committed Simon and I would have been also bang to rights after accepting responsibility in writing. Many people have said they will protest how they want and without instruction and also without obstruction. Protest have not ended, the only change is, we won't have any organised for the match on Saturday.
The hounds were released too early, damaging our season, well done Glen you have done a sterling job and contributed to the dire position we now find ourselves in! As for you telling people what to do and not do, or influence as it should more accurately be described, a word of advice - it is easy to stir up negative emotions, much more difficult (perhaps impossible) to replace them with positive ones. I would suggest also that you should consider trying to remove whatever responsibility you have taken on for other people’s actions, as you have no control over the thing you started at all.
Just keep taking your rational medication malby, and stop trying to pin the blame for our miserable last twelve months on anyone but the real culprits. P.S. When does the monsoon season start out there in Pune?

If nothing else this is good PR for the protesters…… with recent flak the protesters received, it seems a smart and appropriate move by you Glen to postpone the next game’s organised protests. The disastrous spectacle of fans booing their own teams goal, like the first goal against Swansea (no matter who it was aimed at) showed to the outside world that the protesters seemed unreasonable with the only item on their agenda a personal campaign against an individual, regrettably everyone gets tarred with the same brush!

This postponement will hopefully create a different/better atmosphere at Ewood hopefully allowing the players to be 100% focused on the game in hand ,with lady luck producing a couple of winning performances with style! Not only that….the protesters should now come across to the outside world as reasonable, committed but fair minded supporters who’s only goal is for the benefit of BRFC…well done Glen.

Personally, I think he and the businessmen are going about it the right way.
You've got to remember the culture in India, which is based on respect - and before anyone jumps on this, I'm not suggesting Venkys have earned any respect, apart from the Ronnie Clayton stand - but constant foul-mouthed abuse is more likely to make them dig their heels in and ignore any protests.
Be respectful and polite (as hard as that could be) when dealing with Venkys and we may have a chance.
I'd bet my season ticket that Ian Battersby and the main stand sponsor didn't just wade in and start shouting and swearing at them. You've got to 'play the game', and in this case the game is 'respect'. It's a matter of treading carefully, putting arguments across in a forceful but reasonable manner, and not alienating any who could be wavering in their support of the present regime.
Sorry Sam but your season ticket is worthless same as mine under this Lot wish Venky's would buy it back off me

thing is jason can't score goals even on 15k per week or whatever he gets, stay in the studio jason and leave blackburn rovers you are useless. jason roberts serves no purpose at blackburn rovers. he is just taking and giving nothing back.

for blackburn rovers to progress and take a step forward the following must be booted out of the club immediately

Salgado
Dunn
Roberts
Grella
Petrovic
Givet
Goodwillie
Blackman
Slew
they are just not up to current premiership standard neither is the manager or owners.

I miss the real football club from the 80s. The old Blackburn end.

Where you could break wind and everyone laughed!

You could make comments about the other teams doctor!

Where you could pee on someones leg and blame it on the drunk in the corner!

I miss standing up with the people of Blackburn.

Maybe only a couple of thousand in that Blackburn end, but then it was real.

The fans who were there all lived in the area, and all walked home as one.

Discuss the downside of "movement" within world and has it made "local hunour" less funny?

well done that man, if only more would follow in your footsteps, an empty ground is our only hope as fans to show we will not take getting battered off teams we were comfortably beating 2-0 a couple of seasons ago and that doesn't take much effort does it?

if you are not happy don't go and that is 99% of rovers fans. if an empty stadium doesn't show the world that we are unhappy and want change now, then i'm afraid nothing will.

Anyone heard the saying 'rolling with the punch'? 'Cos that's what Kean and Venkys are doing by giving the protesters something that costs them nothing.....talk is cheap but time is valuable and it's running out fast. Kean out.

shame, you may never see them again in the top division of English football……forget about Kean/ Venkeys…..the team needs us the fans more than ever now….the town needs a top flight club…..whilst we’ve a chance why not grasp it!……I luv my team and will support them always no matter who manages or owns them….Blackburn Rovers is about us the fans the area and the history of our great club …I urge you not to let some Johnny come lately drive you away….the team needs you.

Look Mr mullan, I said weeks ago that the fans need to pull together and be the 12th man and got my usual mauling. I dont mind you saying now you think the time is right. But I said you went in too early, far too early and got my usual pounding, some of it extremely nasty indeed, thanks Roversloyal.
Now you come on here and say that its okay for me to be the twelfth man because you say it is.
I thought your objective was to get Kean sacked? not just better communications with you involved, I bet some of the protesters are bitterly dissappointed with this latest direction change.
To be honest I want all Rovers fans to be the twelfth man as well to get us out of this mess, but then again my viewpoint has always been this way. For that I have been accused of being a Venky/Kean luvvie but I aint I'm a Rovers luvvie thats all, and if Kean and Venky's left tomorrow I would still be here. So don't patronise me with your five minutes of fame attitude, I haven't changed my stance.
I'm actually glad you have seen a bit of sense at last. The time for results is now and we need all the help we can get in order to get them. I just hope its not too late.

So far the protests have been organised and peaceful.However the club are against them many fans are against them,they have failed to bring the media spotlight that might have removed Kean.
Now all organised protests have been removed peace will resume,I think not if we go behind on saturday or worst still get hammered I think quite a few people on all sides will be wishing for some orgaisation to return in place of the anarchy which will erupt..

Communications help but we need. proper logical management of the club, somehing that this lot are not capable of.That is the reason for the protests The supporters did not appoint Kean, the supporters are not responsible for his terrible track record, the supporters are not resposible for Keans and Andersons bad buys. The supporters are not responsible for Venky's being absent from day one and Venky's are out of order blaming the supporters for not coming just because of one occasion of abuse. The supporters are not responsible for Venky's giving Kean an improved contract after leading us to an outrageous set of results since he took over. The timing of this event was unreal. By any standard.Dont think by suspending protest fror two weeks will make these people change course as they appear to very pig headed and they can't use the protests as a reason for not sorting things out. If action is seen not to be taken immediately then the protests should continue. We are not bothered if they are embarassed because they have caused all this and do they think we feel. Time has nearly run out stay in the premiership.

A sad reflection on Rovers here - one is damned if one does and one is damned if one does not with a certain element.

All that matters is Rovers get 6 points on the board from the next two games and give us hope for the future in the Premier League.

At the least it may make a better Christmas than staring down the abyss of the Championship and Division 1 because freefall is a possibility here. No one can then accuse the supporters of being responsible.

I think the underlying notion here is that the club is possibly trying to guage the strength of animosity towards Kean without the organised element. Hopefully, win, lose or draw, they will get the picture and advise the sacking of Kean before key players decide to leave and the transfer fund is squandered.

Rovers were sh!t last week against Sunderland. Poor fitness, poor effort, poor team selection and unbelievably poor tactics. This was nothing to do with dissent from the supporters. Kean is the No1 reason we are where we are. Until he goes Ewood will never be the same. Whatever your view of how and when best to protest is irrelevant until this bl00dy clown is removed from BRFC. IMHO you must keep doing what you’ve been doing until the Venky’s see some sense and start turning our club around.

The Venky's and Kean have caused this whole sorry situation over the previous year, asking the protesters not to organise anything for the next two games isn't going to change a thing. The likelyhood is that the dire form will continue and fans will vent their spleens accordingly as the reality of the relegation hits home. The only solution as everybody knows is a change of manager and even that is a gamble.

You're missing the point I think. ORGANISED protests are on hold. That means there are NO protests ORGANISED. Spontaneous protests during the next two games will almost certainly occur.

Before everyone flies of the handle, all that has been done here, is we have decided not to have "ORGANISED" Protest for the next two home games, and this has been done as we have requested certain things which has been agreed with the club, including a full meeting with the board, The club has agreed these things we have asked for. However this does not take anyone's right to protest away, all it means is we won't be telling people what they should or should not do. Supporters will make their own minds up come saturday what they wish to do before, during and after. Every supporter is in charge of themselves and also in charge of their own conduct. Previously any offences committed Simon and I would have been also bang to rights after accepting responsibility in writing. Many people have said they will protest how they want and without instruction and also without obstruction. Protest have not ended, the only change is, we won't have any organised for the match on Saturday.

I have always made my mind up and that has included thinking protesting before and during the game has affected our players and that Venkys and Kean will get us nowhere.

However this does not take anyone's right to protest away, all it means is we won't be telling people what they should or should not do. Supporters will make their own minds up come saturday what they wish to do before, during and after. Every supporter is in charge of themselves and also in charge of their own conduct. Previously any offences committed Simon and I would have been also bang to rights after accepting responsibility in writing. Many people have said they will protest how they want and without instruction and also without obstruction. Protest have not ended, the only change is, we won't have any organised for the match on Saturday.[/p][/quote]All it means is we wont be telling people what they should or should not do.

You seem to have a series of pathetic comments on this blog, but this is just stupid. I live in Leicester, I have supported Rovers since 1954, and had a season ticket for many many years since then and almost certainly for more than the number of years you have been alive. Even though I work many weekends now I still travel as often as physically possible to watch them. You think I am a traitor and an outsider, OK, whatever, as they say nowadays. It probably costs me more to go to a match than you spend getting there all season, that's my choice, but don't think you can tell me my opinions don't count and I am a traitor and an outsider.

You see I do have some support, we are like the Burnley equivilant of the SAS.
My mission is to infiltrate the next two Rovers home matches wearing a protesters T-shirt and boo from the kick off until the final whistle. This action has been designed to suck in all the Rovers brain dead lemming nomarks into destroying their own teams morale and thus performing like a bunch of under 11's on haslingdens cow pat infested mud pit on a sunday afternoon.
I expect the opposition to break double figures such is going to be the low ebb of self belief the players feel. My god we even had Givet feigning a heart attack to get off the pitch last time they ran out.
I'm sure all of the brain dead will join with me, thinking I am one of theirs and we will even congratulate one another on what a fine job we did of ensuring relegation.
Mission accomplished and all for £25 cheap as chips. and a fun day out for all. Its a lot cheaper than hiring a plane for £2500 but will have far deeper impact. You see we still owe you for the plane over Turf Moor
Any Claret fans wanting a day out may tag along for the spectacle.

As for the Venkys I don't trust them, a few people have said that the protests are disrespectful in their culture. In my culture you tell someone how it is and your actions speak louder than words. Act now, remove muppet and give new manager (Hughes) money in transfer window and I'll happily bin my 'Venkys Out' t-shirt. I think however that I'll be wearing it on Blackpool beach come the summer!

You're missing the point I think. ORGANISED protests are on hold. That means there are NO protests ORGANISED. Spontaneous protests during the next two games will almost certainly occur.

Looks like someone got the seasons mixed up it was at easter that Judas did his bit not Christmas. The main thing that is affecting things on the pitch is a manager who is tactically incompetent not protests. Against sunderland oneill switched his tactics in the second half Kean hadn't a clue how to counter so two quick goals and three points lost to rovers. Against norwich 3-1 up yet let in 2 goals and rovers lose 2 more points. Ffs the only salvation for rovers isn't a bit of chit chat with the fans, it is action, it is Kean out

I would suggest also that you should consider trying to remove whatever responsibility you have taken on for other people’s actions, as you have no control over the thing you started at all.
Your assuming that all protestors are easily led without minds of their own.
I'm quite capable of formulating my own opinions, judging the pro's and con's of the situation. I decided to protest not because of Glen, but because of the situation unravelling at Rovers. It was easy to see last season that Kean was not up to the job and Venkys were not living up to thier promises. I may say that we who did raise questions early could see the farce unfolding long before people such as yourself. The only comparison you could make to hounds, is that we sniffed the S#*t out earliest!!

All those having a go at Glenn as if he is trying to be a 'celeb' of some sort, for doing this need to get a grip. The man is pro-actively taking what steps he can to resolve the cr*p situation we are in. He hasn't sold out, he has simply stated he has managed to get a promise of a meeting with members of Rovers board and that all 'co-ordinated' protests are on hold. He has not told anyone they can or can't protest. That's all an individual decision.
I praise what you've done Glenn. I just hope, if you do get this meeting with Kean and/or the board, you don't hold back or tame down yours and our feelings. Kean has to go and needs to be told so. If this isn't made clear, I will lose all faith in any future 'organised' protests.

Oh no! The protesters have now been got at.

There is now no hope of anything being changed.

Venky's and Kean can now laugh their heads of.

Down, down and further down we go.

Relegation is certain now the protesters are helping them to ruin the club and continue to fool us all. There is no one left to fight our corner. We have been badly let down.

Peace in our time!
What a laugh.

Credit to Glen, he knows that the protesters are being labelled as being the only ones who want Kean/Venkys out and Kean has used this to his advantage by saying it's all planned by glen and his supporters. By Glen saying it's up to each individual takes the onus away from that small group and Kean can no longer say it's an isolated group.

If it wasn't planned that way it may prove beneficial for all.

Kean & Venkys out!!!!

Please do give up. You're a bigger pain in the ar$e than the protestors themselves. While you're at it, give up posting those childish jokes you cribbed from Billy No Mates in Year 5 at St. Pansies.

OK now what, do we still put up with their smoke and mirrors and SK?

Personally I think the pressure should be maintained on SK as he is not a Prem manager just a glorified ball boy

Can’t say I agree with the decision as this looks like a chink in the armor and we know what happens when you cry wolf too many times, sometimes you get what you deserve!!

I really don't understand this. What channels of communication have been established? What true value do they have?

Ian Battersby (all bow) said the Venkys made all the right noises when he visited Pune in the summer. However, since then he admits there has been a lack of action. No shtt Sherlock! The Venkys failing to deliver? Wow. Didn't see that one.

Before the agreement was made to stop the protests, did anyone get any assurances? For instance. Will Kean appear on Mach of the Day claiming he has tamed the fans with his brand of winning football?

The two matches coming up are really irrelevant. We may win, but then we have Liverpool and United away. Two easy matches solves nothing, especially if we lose players in January.

What counts is Venkys commitment. Will they put up some hard cash in January or will we see three or four Premiership players leave to be replaced by SPL players from Dundee and Alloa. Our managers ex club?

I really don't see why we ought to be encouraged to establish dialogue with owners who have habitually lied. They have past the point of no return along time ago. Blackburn Rovers fans must do everything they can to protect the club from these carpet baggers - and that means PROTEST!!!!!!!!!!!!

The hounds were released too early, damaging our season, well done Glen you have done a sterling job and contributed to the dire position we now find ourselves in! As for you telling people what to do and not do, or influence as it should more accurately be described, a word of advice - it is easy to stir up negative emotions, much more difficult (perhaps impossible) to replace them with positive ones. I would suggest also that you should consider trying to remove whatever responsibility you have taken on for other people’s actions, as you have no control over the thing you started at all.
Your assuming that all protestors are easily led without minds of their own.
I'm quite capable of formulating my own opinions, judging the pro's and con's of the situation. I decided to protest not because of Glen, but because of the situation unravelling at Rovers. It was easy to see last season that Kean was not up to the job and Venkys were not living up to thier promises. I may say that we who did raise questions early could see the farce unfolding long before people such as yourself. The only comparison you could make to hounds, is that we sniffed the S#*t out earliest!!
100% BRFC
I like the sniffed comment! You are missing my point, it is not about who saw what first it is about the fact that the protests started in sept and have not worked, i.e. Kean is still in a job! Starting protesting that early was never going to work, it has only served to make the situation worse.....

Protest have not ended, the only change is, we won't have any organised for the match on Saturday.[/p][/quote]Glen could you tell the fans what it is that you are very very happy with concerning the communications and what the progress you have made is?cheers.[/p][/quote]He's happy to have SOLD OUT IvanDobsky

What is with all the furor? If people want to protest, then protest. If you don't, then don't. Glen Mullan is not some vigilante leader of the protest group. If he has postponed the organised protests then fair enough. If you read between the lines of his post, there is an emphasis on the word "organised". I was as appalled as anyone when the booing occurred after we scored, but that was thousands of fans. It wasn't just the few hundred or so that have been on the protest marches etc. Any effectual protest will be done in spontaneity with the whole ground partaking. Support the lads as much as possible tomorrow, but I guarantee, if we go behind the Kean out chants will be rife. Let nature take its course and stop looking for leaders. Voice whatever you feel is right.

This is Very Good news! the ONLY thing a Football Fan can change is a Game by being the 13TH Man.
We cant deal with the clubs finance or new players that are bought or sold,nor can we tell any Manager how to set-out his stall, gone have the days when you hear about every player who is injured unless they are out for more than 4 weeks.
Only the management Staff know who will play and where they will play every game,all Managers now keep their game plan a secret,King Kenny started that as we all know!
It's going to be a up hill battle but IF WE WILL GET THERE IF WE STICK TOGHETHER!
The thought of any more Acton should NOW be forgot about because they DONT WORK!
Remember we are ALL the 13TH Man! that WILL CHANGE the Results.

Don't have a Plan B, just C. Well, Operation really. Operation Chicken. I don't know what it is yet but it'll involve chickens and bring down the Venky's empire.

He's been criticised for organising protests and now he's criticised for suggesting protests are postponed for the next two matches.
I haven't always agreed with his views, but at least they are articulate and well thought-out, unlike a lot of the poisonous dross that's posted on here.
Personally, I think he and the businessmen are going about it the right way.
You've got to remember the culture in India, which is based on respect - and before anyone jumps on this, I'm not suggesting Venkys have earned any respect, apart from the Ronnie Clayton stand - but constant foul-mouthed abuse is more likely to make them dig their heels in and ignore any protests.
Be respectful and polite (as hard as that could be) when dealing with Venkys and we may have a chance.
I'd bet my season ticket that Ian Battersby and the main stand sponsor didn't just wade in and start shouting and swearing at them. You've got to 'play the game', and in this case the game is 'respect'. It's a matter of treading carefully, putting arguments across in a forceful but reasonable manner, and not alienating any who could be wavering in their support of the present regime.
Having been one of the greatest critics of Glen and the organised protests, especially before and during the games I have to say that I am now in full support of what he is attempting to achieve through "proper channels", and samblue has hit the nail on the head. with the above comments.
.
I echo them, with owners who live so far away and have no real idea what they have got themselves into abuse in any shape or form simply will not work.
.
Whatever their reasons they bought our club, in a period of recession, ostensibly with good intentions but they have been scared away by the venom aimed at the manager they appointed and them as well.
.
They are business people, If they loose interest they haven't any emotional or historical attachment to Rovers as we the fans have, they could simply cut their losses and run.
.
While I think that is somewhat unlikely it will be an option I would consider in their position, in that scenario Rovers wouldn't just be relegated, they would cease to exist.
.
So good luck Glen and the rest of the negotiating team.

The break through in communications has come because of the protests,they do work and have now hopefully pushed the club in to dialogue with fans after twelve months of ignoring us and turning there noses up at us. Sales of merchandise,goods in and out of the ground has not been what they had aimed for this season, due to fans refusing to by drinks and food on match days,small maybe but its been effective. Loss of fans also at the turnstiles has affected venkys income,no wonder Barclays have been chasing venkys and been in regular discussions with venkys. They had hoped to run the club on abudget, hoping it would pay for its self but it is failing miserably,now venkys are starting to wake up ,they need the fans not just for there teams support but to pay to run the club on the shoe string budget they had originally planed.The protests wont just stop, a bit of time out may be good it will at least show once again that the protesters are well organised and are approachable communicative, unlike one or two on here and venkys in the past. As for progress i think this will show in the discussions at the meetings rather than claiming progress has been made by a few verbal appointments made by the board lets wait and see first. 100% behind the team? fans always have been,fans have been amazingly patient to have put up with all this duplicity from kean and venkys over the last twelve months,most of the clubs in the P/L would have been rioting by now if this had happened to there clubs. Hope we follow this all the way through not forgetting these problems were caused by venkys in the first place.

Easy to sit on a forum and comment. At least Glen and his cohorts have got up off their backsides and developed a protest movement. Without them there'd be no organisation and no national publicity!
Without them Kean really could dismiss us as the 1%.
Even if they did jump on the bandwagon, it still means they've been supporting the club for nearly 20 years!
What have you done to get Kean out?

It will be worth relegation to get rid of these mugs.[/p][/quote]Easy to sit on a forum and comment. At least Glen and his cohorts have got up off their backsides and developed a protest movement. Without them there'd be no organisation and no national publicity! Without them Kean really could dismiss us as the 1%.

No, ok you can't get out of the gutter you sado. I said you had a lack of football knowledge, you've just proved it in your last post.

I'm sure it would be helpful if the protestors compiled a list of acceptable manager candidates so that there would be no moaning in few months time.

Don't have a Plan B, just C. Well, Operation really. Operation Chicken. I don't know what it is yet but it'll involve chickens and bring down the Venky's empire.

Any ideas? They have to be clucking good mind...

I don't Glen really speaks for the protesters, we'll still be chanting KEAN OUT for 90 mins.
Yep... sell out.

Looks like he's been given a taste of authority.... sounds very opportunistic to me.

I give up!
I know. Jason Roberts is despicable and the way he has spoken to Rovers fans on national Radio is scandalous... all this "respectable management speak" coming from these self styled leaders has all the hall marks of sold out opportunists.

Venky's Out! Kean Out! Roberts Out!

I was at the last protest and although JR has been poor for the last couple of years he didn't deserve the personal abuse directed at him.

I agree with Glen the fans must be united, but can't help but feel that we are being sold down the river by incompetent owners, a poor managment structure and inferior players when compared to last years squad. Hopefully the atmopshere within the stadium will be good, and we will see a couple of wins. But nothing alters the FACT that Mr Kean is nowhere near being a premiership manager and his remarks and treatment of the fans have been abysmal and shocking. COYB
I think JR deserves the abuse he gets. He comes out in support of the manager because he knows no other manager will pay him that much to play at this level. He's the master at fooling people who know bugger all about football that he puts effort in to his play. One of my good mates is a PL defender and he was saying against Rovers they're told "If Roberts is coming towards you he'll back out of making the tackle. Don't panic at all and take your time". And to add insult to injury he's always on at the ref f'ing and jeffing. He's been sent off 3 times on the last day of the season for trivial things - case of ref's revenge maybe? I've no time for people who draw a salary yet put no effort in.

Some stats for you...

- 3 tackles made this season (ave 1 every 146mins)

- 66.6% pass completion this season (worst of any Rovers forward) )

- This season matches 9 (4 as sub) shots on target 0 shots off target 4

- Touched the ball less often than any other player in EPL last season, once every 3.03mins

Get him out of our club and his massive wages off the books
Jason Roberts is disgusting and deserves all he gets - he is a charlatan.

Personally, I think he and the businessmen are going about it the right way. You've got to remember the culture in India, which is based on respect - and before anyone jumps on this, I'm not suggesting Venkys have earned any respect, apart from the Ronnie Clayton stand - but constant foul-mouthed abuse is more likely to make them dig their heels in and ignore any protests. Be respectful and polite (as hard as that could be) when dealing with Venkys and we may have a chance. I'd bet my season ticket that Ian Battersby and the main stand sponsor didn't just wade in and start shouting and swearing at them. You've got to 'play the game', and in this case the game is 'respect'. It's a matter of treading carefully, putting arguments across in a forceful but reasonable manner, and not alienating any who could be wavering in their support of the present regime.
Well Sam, you are just being reasonale, not something you can do on this site!
I agrre though but then again I am reasonble and an optimist...needed at Rovers
I have done business in India and the Sub continent phsyce is odd to our way of thinking. The norm is to agree and smile and politely listen and say yes even when they think NO!
In fact they condider it rude to say no to someones face and negitiating is always tricky because of this .
It is just a cultural fact of life and the Rao family reaction to the horrendous abuse and vilification is not suprising.
I am not defending their record, it is indefensible but we all need to recall that they were met with a negative reception from Day One.
CHICKENS ON HEADS RING A BELL anyone, chants of One Jack walker when they were being introduced?
It is not surprising in that light is it?
I was guilty of reacting negatively to them as well so I am not blameless.
We really need to take a hard look at ourselves as well though?
That includes Glen Mullan et al
2Horrendous abuse and vilification" that the Venky's have faced - you won't be happy until we're down, will you?

You are a racist genocidal anti-English bigot and your comments ion here about the British Army only comprising of Scotch because the English are cowards is an absolute disgrace.

You are part of a very tiny minority of Kean/Venky's fanatics.

Tell me, as Cahill is so great and worth 250 million pounds since his move from villa, a team for which he couldn't get in the side, how come you are sh1t at the back?

How come the only person saying Cahill is worth 250 million pounds is Jimmy Krankie? I think you are doomed, don't get me wrong, I think we are currently doomed as well, but you lot are worse than us.
Got to go, its time for a Notlob Bob
How very sad spending all that time posting such utter crap. Your lack of knowledge of all things football is frightening, so instead you just talk absolute rubbish.You really should try and step out of the gutter occasionally.
Just don't know how you can come on here calling Rovers anything. Notlob are worse. More golals conceded than Nigella lawsons had sausage and my I bet she's had some sausage in her time.
Dirty Bolton - smaller club, smaller stadium, smaller support, smaller trophy cabinet....bigger town.
