IF I had a business in, let’s say, Pune in India, and I decided to rock up because the president was in town, I think I would pop along and have a look at the workforce.

So it was a bit bemusing that Balaji and Venkatesh made the round-the-world trip to Blackburn to wave at the Queen, who probably hasn’t a clue who they are, only to go back to India without bothering to watch the match the following day.

Maybe they knew in advance how bad it was going to be?

Either way, it is about time our owners came back for a look at the place on a matchday.

After all the mistakes of their first couple of years in charge they, quite rightly, backed away.

But I think the worst of the bad feeling is subsiding as fortunes on the pitch begin to improve.

Yes we’re unlikely to make the play-offs, but the (I’m going to use the ‘s’ word again) stability is there, we are not in a relegation battle and we have almost challenged for a place in the top six.

There’s been no talk of Ronaldinho, Maradona or Beckham, only ‘proper’ players coming in like Tom Cairney, Rudy Gestede and Craig Conway.

The sorts of players you build a decent Championship club around and the sorts of players who haven’t cost the earth.

We haven’t heard from Venky’s all season and, for the most part, that has probably been a good thing.

But with the season coming to a close and the club, hopefully, ready to have a good go at promotion next season, now is the time for them to reach out to the fans.

You have niicked my name

Truth is there has been a lot of damage done but , without their money, we are looking at Derbys with Stanley and Chorley in a year or two

They were very badly ( Criminally) advised in year 1 and 2 . But to give them some Credit they have had the sense to back off and leave it to the new management team to run things i much better way this year.

We are going to Finish 2 or 3 Points outside the Pay Off and without conceding daft late goals at Sheff Wed and others , we would be in there. In my Humble opinion that would be a year too early

I agree with the article. It is now time for them to make some kind of statement of intent, probably best through the correct Club channels Maybe a Well Done for Gary and the team on the Fantastic rebuilding of the team in such a short space of time, would be appropriate , along with a promise of continued backing for next seasons push for Automatic Promotion

And say what, exactly, Dan? Seriously, I'd love to know what you'd like to hear from them, or even realistically expect them to say. Whilst most things have improved drastically this season, I doubt very much that their attitudes or understanding of the role the club plays in the community has.

Silent partners are prevelant in business and I see nothing wrong with having silent owners, so long as there are experienced people running the club on a day-to-day basis.

Venkys should have given the Queen a miss and popped over to Turf Moor to see how a proper football club is run.
Good win for Reading tonight by the way. Only 1 place to play for and reading have the insurance of playing last game.........just in case they need a point or three. LOL

you know when Rovers were promoted to the Premier league the last thing I could give a to55 about was the dingles.... not as they were even on the horizon then. ..... to busy enjoying our success (best to do so as it does always last too long)

It just goes to prove you are more interested in us than you ever will be in that sad bunch ...

Would say see you in a season but we will be ships passing in the night as we get promoted.

An even better win for Leicester.

All games kick off at the same time on the last day of the season so how do Reading have the insurance (surely you meant benefit) of playing last?

Excellent article, one I concur with totally, it's in Venky's hands now, this season they have kept quiet, out of the way and let GB and the rest get on with the restructuring, which meeting Queenie then buggering off aside, has been the right thing to do following the debacle of the previous couple of seasons.

All fine and dandy but they own our club lock, stock and barrel and if the improvements of this season are going to be extended to next I firmly believe we need to know if and how they intend the club to move forward.

Is that too much to ask?

I think they should stay away from football, don't you? After the total fcuk up they've made of BRFC, they're obviously not cut out for this sort of thing. Or, on the other hand, maybe my idea of them buying a club in Colombia might not be a bad thing. You know how the Colombian fans deal with abject failure, don't you? It certainly won't be snowballs they're dodging.

Stating their intentions now would be premature. It is still uncertain how FFP will impact the finances of the team. Until that is known, support statements from the owners wouldn't mean much. Good luck from a Clarets fan on the final two games of this season and on into the next.

On the other hand the writer should also have thought why the club owners , in a Great gesture, came all the way from India to pay respect to the Queen (Not their Queen though ..) and cannot visit their own team.
The answer is simply because of the moronic fans who behave barbaric by throwing snow or stones at them.
Its only a shame for the Blackburn community to have their laundry washed in open , where the world will say, '' See they boo their own team, even their owners are afraid to come to their place.... '''.
Its time for the fans to introspect their manners and culture rather the writer shamelessly expects the owners to do lipservice.. Had the onwers been like the owners of Leeds United , they will know their value.

Perhaps they should invest in a proper police force over there in India to stop the raping of women which I believe is one every twenty two minutes!! You forgot to tell us that Mr Modan, no it's Not a nice place to live which would explain why your over here talking bull sh!t.

Venkys will -

Come to see the queen = yes

Come to see the fans = no

As a fan one thing I will say is the Venkys still keep putting there money into BRFC, this may be out of guilt but at least they are doing it.

To provide any welcome to Venkys would be akin to watching someone burn down your house including all your loved possessions then be asked to thank them as they spray water over the smoking ashes.
They are despised. Despite Modan,s warped view of India ( a country where 600 million people do not have access to a toilet, rape is accepted as part of a females life, corruption is the public sector's strap line and the hideous caste system permeates every aspect of life) Venkys have brought this attitude into their ownership of Rovers. Never to be questioned. Never wrong. Never apologise. Expect fawning from your underlings. Just because they are incredibly wealthy in a dreadful country like India.
A huge apology would help but it just isn't going to happen. And how dare you suggest it you plebs. . . ..

This is the time for Venkys to keep right out of it.

If you insist on hearing from them, and personally I don't , I am interested in their actions, not their words, then at least have the decency to wait until the end of the season when the pointless rhetoric does not distract from the serious business of winning matches.

Please save it for summer when you need something to write about.

Cranky, like them or not, and I can't think of anyone who does, we actually need them now more than they need us.

With the imminent arrival of FFP preventing potential buyers being able to take over a club and simply chucking money at it will be long gone.

Even clubs like Man City and Chelsea are running into problems because of the money they have spent, let alone clubs like ours.

With somewhere in the region of 75% of club owners in this country looking to offload their investment it is extremely unlikely that even if Venky's put us up for sale there would be a buyer.

So far Venky's haven't shown any indication of wanting to sell, all the noises coming out of Ewood suggest that they are there for the long term, thankfully they have sat in the background this season and allowed football people to try to sort the mess out.

That's why I said up front on this thread this is the time for Venky's to to come clean, I won't be holding my breath but you never know.

Just because most Rovers fans hate Venkys, doesn't make them racist you uneducated turdburglar.

For example, I hate Guinness. That doesn't mean I hate everyone who's Irish.

As has been pointed out many times before, the only racist Modan is you.

Cranky, like them or not, and I can't think of anyone who does, we actually need them now more than they need us.

With the imminent arrival of FFP preventing potential buyers being able to take over a club and simply chucking money at it will be long gone.

Even clubs like Man City and Chelsea are running into problems because of the money they have spent, let alone clubs like ours.

With somewhere in the region of 75% of club owners in this country looking to offload their investment it is extremely unlikely that even if Venky's put us up for sale there would be a buyer.

So far Venky's haven't shown any indication of wanting to sell, all the noises coming out of Ewood suggest that they are there for the long term, thankfully they have sat in the background this season and allowed football people to try to sort the mess out.

That's why I said up front on this thread this is the time for Venky's to to come clean, I won't be holding my breath but you never know.
the biggest Venky appoligist himself ahs spoken.

They care NOTHING about BRFC but 100% about Venkys chicken and they have got their NAME across to the world by destroying our club.

Dan Clough: " I think the worst of the bad feeling is subsiding as fortunes on the pitch begin to improve."

How can someone who supposedly scribbles about Blackburn Rovers be (ONCE AGAIN) so out of touch and clueless that one can only assume that he is deaf, mute and has never been within 200 miles of Ewoo Park.

They seem to let any old muppet write articles for the LET these days.

Time to ditch Clough and employ a Rovers fan
