    Well done Venky's you just could not stand that things were going well for once could you!!! You are complete inept morons and destroying our club.

    3 back to back wins for the first time in god knows how long and you have to interfere, didn't it occur to you that a change had come about in the players!!

    Why don't you just disappear back down the drain you crawled out of? I personally will never accept you no matter what you do now and I am sure that not many fans will either. TRASH!!!!

    As for Appleton keep taking the money pal another one on the gravy train!!!!!

    The new manager always says we have a talented squad, there may be some players with skill. but we are weak and we are slow. We have the weakest midfield in the division.

    Appelton, if he is any good, should realise quickly that he has to add some power and strength to a weak team. No chance of promotion this season and we will never hang on to Jordan Rhodes for next season, without him we would be bottom of the league.

    I would like to think that Venky's will take a message away with them from the Rovers fans but sadly they wont not sure if they are just pig thick or dont give a crap or worse still both. To make matters worse Bumley are starting to pull clear of us now. Time to act this has to be the most humiliating period in our whole history!!!

    HANG YOUR HEADS IN SHAME VENKY'S AND EVERYONE ELSE ON YOUR CORRUPT GRAVY TRAIN!!!!!!!

    The squad is not good enough full stop!! With the exception of Rhodes who gets no service everyone else is distinctly average. Every quality player has been sold by Venky's who clearly left early for fear of things getting ugly!!

    Appleton had the same players at his disposal as Gary Bowyer but look at the result!! This is a results driven game and a quick look at Appleton's record is a pretty good indication of what is on the cards.

    I am beginning to have an issue with football in general as it is the only business on the globe where people can make millions from mediocrity and it has to stop as it is obscene in the extreme.

    How many people walk away from a job with a poor track record and step into a double your money post??


    INSANITY!!!!!! IT HAS TO STOP!!!!

    10 points off of the top six, 10 points off of the bottom three. Some of the players seem to decide when they want to play and when they don't. Overall a poor performance.

    He needs to sign some of his own players if he wants to build the team he wants.

    Venky's got a reality check today to say the least. It's now obvious that investment is needed over the next 2 weeks, I hold my breath though.

    To all the optimists of the last week. What happened? I am going back to being my usual pessimistic self. At least I won't be disappointed by anything that happens. I was full of great expectations for today. More fool me. Come back Gary, at least you got the best out of the players. Venky's obviously could not put up with the rubbish we have had to for the last two years. Probably gone to watch Blackpool.

    I agree with you r comments. It is not that we want to be pessimistic but everytime we see an opportunity for optimism it is quickly dashed on the rocks

    We all want things to improve but need it quickly for the sake of our sanity!!

    Look where we were when Venky's joined up and look where we are now?

    Even Burnley are pulling clear of us now which has to be the ultimate humiliation, it means nothing to Venky's but it is heartbreaking for the Rovers Fans.

    What happened to the enquiry that the FA were allegedly carrying out? It took less time to produce the report on Watergate! We need this idiots out and now!

    I really don't understand what Blackburn fans are booing about. you have to look at the players as well. They are on the field not the owners., if they sold up who buy Rovers? remember Mike Ashley and Newcastle?

    The defence is below average and the midfield is no different. They need to invest in these areas because it's where the problems are. No help up front and defending is atrocious.

    absolute embarassment of a club and fans who have brought it all on themselves, should have kept Steve Kean in charge and you would be up near Burnley with a chance of promotion.

    Blackburn deserve to go down for the terrible treatment of the owners and management by the supporters. Fans should get behind their team and realise that you are nott a premier league club, you are punching above your weight to even be in the championship. get realistic and back your owners, without them you wouldnt have a club to support cos nobody else wants to put up with such pathetic support.


    Really feel sorry for the Venkys who have nvested heavily in the club and think whatever they do won't be enough for you lot. Appleton should get out while he can before the shambles of a support hound him out and dent his CV.
