PR chief Agnew all set for a seat on the Blackburn board

First published in Football Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author Exclusive by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

PAUL Agnew is expected to be unveiled as director of communications at Blackburn Rovers imminently after coming to an agreement in principle with owners Venky’s.

The club’s press officer for the past 14 years has been invited to take a seat on the board and is set to accept the new role.

The 54-year-old, a former chief executive at Preston North End and journalist, currently runs a PR company, PAPR.

He said: “As a Blackburn Rovers supporter from the age of six, there were two big dreams. One to play for the club or to have a role in the running of it.

“It is a massive honour to be invited to become director of communications, and maybe there is something there that people can relate to, being a genuine Blackburn Rovers supporter.

“I am well aware of the situation we find ourselves in. I am well aware communication has been an issue and will do my level best to make sure there are improvements.

“During my time being involved in football, I have seen all sides of it, from the press room to the board room, and I feel I have a handle on it and do know Blackburn Rovers exceptionally well.

“This a great chance for me and it is up to me to prove I am up to a very serious under taking.”

Rovers supporter since the age of six? One thing is for sure, nobody working for Kean and Venkys can claim to be a Rovers supporter.

Could he not have improved communication whilst in his roll as press officer these past eighteen months? why does he think because he is a board member it will be any different! do the present board members know whats going on!!! NO .This is starting to smell very bad indeed what does it take for Venkys to stop acting like total prats and listen to whats being said on the terraces and in the media.Looks like the only way is as has been put forward a boycott of Ewood.

Well at least he knows what the problem is with communication but does he have the brief to fix it? As Press Officer in the past he was quite limited as to what he could say. But surely as Director of Communications he will have a more open and free role to help resolve some of the massive communication issues we have seen over the last 12 months..?

What other business would get away with treating its customers with such contempt?

In Agnew, we have Kean's puppet and so his influence is strengthened.

To all those people who took advantage of the early bird season ticket offer - thank you - you have assisted in strengthening Kean's position, all for the sake of saving £10, £20 or £30. You could have at least waited for the 'claim your own seat' deadline.

To offset the bad news of Kean and Agnew strengthening their position I now expect a 'fantastic' season ticket offer to tempt people to renew. Maybe something like Charlton did and followed by Burnley i.e. buy one for 2012/13 and if we win promotion get 2013/14 free?

I just hope those with the real interest of Rovers at heart hold firm for the log term good of the Club and don't renew until these parasites are no longer at Ewood.

Dear Mr Agnew

If this story is true - and you are a true supporter of our club then your first act as an executive director - and remind yourself what the responsibilities of a director are before you begin this process - is to reveal the TRUE FACTS of what has happened to our club and what the future intentions are. Stop patronising thousands of decent,honest
people, many of whom make lots of sacrifices to follow the club.

Your second act is to convince the Venkys that Mr Kean - at any level- does not deserve or warrants any role at this club. He has single handedly dragged this club down to its lowest level, in the eyes of the supporter, in the 50 years I have followed the club. He is a liability. He has brought shame and introduced farce where we had pride and purpose.

You have a major rebuilding job to do to bridge the gap - the chasm - that he and the owners have created between the club and supporter. As a positive, first step in the rebuilding process - I ask that you ensure that Mr Kean is sacked and that he has no other role whatsoever in the future of this club. Only then - and I am sure I reflect the intentions of many - like you - true supporters - will I consider renewing my season ticket.

Keeping him will re-emphasise that our club will only be heading in one direction, where the few will profit - including Mr Kean - and thousands will be left with broken dreams. Do not seriously believe that we will blindly follow something that is projecting the strong smell of corruption. Communicate this Mr Agnew before it is too late.

He is part of the problem as it is clear that he is in the inner circle of management who are running Rovers. That may be Venkys, but it is looking increasingly unlikely that others do not have a big say in how the club has been run, and will continue to be run.
I think dark forces are at work!

IMO THE POLICE SHOULD INVESTIGATE THESE CLAIMS ALONG WITH FIFA AND THE F.A!!

"ROVERS THE TRUTH wrote...

"I am very well connected with BRFC and have sat on this info for long 
enough. You want to know whats going on at Ewood? Here it is...

Steve KEAN (Minor 2nd team coach) is connected to a number of pretty serious Glasgow criminals who had a vast amount of money which required laundering
 (2-3million). 
As an employee of the club, KEAN was aware that ROVERS had been for sale for quite some time with very little serious interest from anyone. He knew the price and the money which would be required to purchase it. 
He approached his management company KETARO (owned by ANDERSON) and put to him a business plan for the purchase of the club. This plan would give ANDERSON unofficial control of the club and enable him to 'legally' 
perform the sort of transaction with existing and future players on his 
books that got West Ham into trouble with the TEVEZ / MASSCARNO saga (the buying and selling of players being the only way to make money from a Premier League club).
The consortium that KEAN suggested involved himself (representing the gangster money) being a shareholder and part owner in the little scheme. KENTRO unable to purchase a Premier League club to to league conflict rules, then scouted around emerging markets (India / China / Brazil) for a company to come in as the "official new owners" someone capable of satisfying the "fit and proper test" laid down by the Premier League. 
VENKYS loved the idea, as they were already keen to attack the European market and expand 
beyond India. The cost to VENKY'S for taking part in the venture was half the purchase price of 43million (This 20 million was set aside by VENKY'S anyway for marketing costs in breaking into the European market, so net coast to VENKY'S being NIL). The remainder of the cost was met by ANDERSON and a number of others in his syndicate 
(including KEAN).
 The scheme was sold to all involve as being 'win win' as the purchase price was assured of being returned to all members of the syndicate by TV money, and, in worst case relegation parachute payment (which totaled coincidentally approx 43 million!).
KEAN had one condition for his involvement, the removal of BIG SAM and his promotion to Club Manager. The removal of the established management 
infrastructure was essential in helping the group keep the deal secret, hence JOHN WILLIAMS, TOM FINN and the rest of the board members were thanked for their services and shown the door. 
The recent mortgage in Aug 2011 for 43million is assured against 
the TV money for this year and any subsequent parachute payment from 
relegation whether that come this year or in the future. 
This money has been returned to all members of the syndicate to cover their initial stake (hence the secrecy), thus any money made from here on in by way of transfers, TV money, sale of the club being total profit to the group. 
The Indians are basically passengers on this train, and as now they have 
their money back, they are totally uninterested in the future of the 
club. For them it remains what it always has been, a marketing tool. 
ANDERSON is keen to continue to use the club as a feeder for his younger less established players, he makes money by legitamatly charging massively inflated agent fees for all players coming in and out, and in the event of a player making a big breakthrough, gains millions for the syndicate in the sell on fee. KEAN, well he's just living the dream, he would never have made a Premier League manager as long as he lived, the best he could aspire to was being someones No 2 and that dream was 
5-10years away. The new improved deal recently signed by KEAN is in recognition and reward from all concerned as the others have all done very well out of the deal to date (he obviously had to be rewarded as well). He is the Manager and he's going nowhere, not because he's "un-sackable" but because he's delivered what he said and not withstanding - HE OWNS PART OF THE 
CLUB (albeit via his gangster friends in Glasgow)!
All of his little trips to INDIA are not about HIM answering to the INDIANS,  they are about HIM telling 
THEM what to do, when to speak and what to say, all the stuff that needs to be said in person, at risk of emails or phone calls being recorded! 
The whole thing would take a financial investigator years to uncover and is more or less impossible to trace as the paper trail all runs though VENKYS in INDIA!
They have the club pretty much sewn up.
The recent interest from the Middle East Quatari Petroleum, is of no interest to the syndicate as they only stand to gain a little over what they paid, the rewards from keeping the club are much more to them than that!
If this deal ever came out, people will be going to jail, so don't expect it to anytime soon.

Oh what fun to be a Rovers fan!"

For them it remains what it always has been, a marketing tool.  ANDERSON is keen to continue to use the club as a feeder for his younger less established players, he makes money by legitamatly charging massively inflated agent fees for all players coming in and out, and in the event of a player making a big breakthrough, gains millions for the syndicate in the sell on fee. KEAN, well he's just living the dream, he would never have made a Premier League manager as long as he lived, the best he could aspire to was being someones No 2 and that dream was  5-10years away. The new improved deal recently signed by KEAN is in recognition and reward from all concerned as the others have all done very well out of the deal to date (he obviously had to be rewarded as well). He is the Manager and he's going nowhere, not because he's "un-sackable" but because he's delivered what he said and not withstanding - HE OWNS PART OF THE  CLUB (albeit via his gangster friends in Glasgow)! All of his little trips to INDIA are not about HIM answering to the INDIANS,  they are about HIM telling  THEM what to do, when to speak and what to say, all the stuff that needs to be said in person, at risk of emails or phone calls being recorded!  The whole thing would take a financial investigator years to uncover and is more or less impossible to trace as the paper trail all runs though VENKYS in INDIA! They have the club pretty much sewn up. The recent interest from the Middle East Quatari Petroleum, is of no interest to the syndicate as they only stand to gain a little over what they paid, the rewards from keeping the club are much more to them than that! If this deal ever came out, people will be going to jail, so don't expect it to anytime soon. Oh what fun to be a Rovers fan!" JonnyLLLLLLLAD

If no one in authority is prepared to listen to the fans concerns, then the only weapon left is a mass boycott. Urge all your fellow fans not to re-new, and the fans that have re-newed ask them to consider asking for a refund.

I've changed my mind. I Don't buy in to the conspiracy theory as it has too many flaws. Far more likely that Venky's knew their empire at home was crumbling and there was going to be an 70% downturn in profits. So they changed their plans. Any monies promised to Keanocho for transfers was removed and he was told to cut costs. We got relegated in the process in order to save money. Hence Keanochio staying at the club. As pointed out above by someone else.
It would have been better to tell us up front instead of the face saving exercise which transpired. Why didn't they just say we have no money, we thought we did but we don't. Kean should be sacked anyway just from the quality of his signings and being a tactically inept pig headed moron liability. Other clubs with the same budget or less are still in the PL. So it is down to Keanochio why we are where we are.
Keanochio must go period.

How long would Colin Hendry last as manager? The first time he said no to Venkeys he would be out on his backside, as would any manager who said no. I think this could be why they are keeping Kean, they can't find a yes man to replace him.

"ROVERS THE TRUTH wrote...

"I am very well connected with BRFC and have sat on this info for long 
enough. You want to know whats going on at Ewood? Here it is...

Steve KEAN (Minor 2nd team coach) is connected to a number of pretty serious Glasgow criminals who had a vast amount of money which required launde
ring
 (2-3million).&
nbsp;
As an employee of the club, KEAN was aware that ROVERS had been for sale for quite some time with very little serious interest from anyone. He knew the price and the money which would be required to purchase it. 
He approached his management company KETARO (owned by ANDERSON) and put to him a business plan for the purchase of the club. This plan would give ANDERSON unofficial control of the club and enable him to 'legally' 
perform the sort of transaction with existing and future players on his 
books that got West Ham into trouble with the TEVEZ / MASSCARNO saga (the buying and selling of players being the only way to make money from a Premier League club).
The consortium that KEAN suggested involved himself (representing the gangster money) being a shareholder and part owner in the little scheme. KENTRO unable to purchase a Premier League club to to league conflict rules, then scouted around emerging markets (India / China / Brazil) for a company to come in as the "official new owners" someone capable of satisfying the "fit and proper test" laid down by the Premier League. 
VENKYS loved the idea, as they were already keen to attack the European market and expand 
beyond India. The cost to VENKY'S for taking part in the venture was half the purchase price of 43million (This 20 million was set aside by VENKY'S anyway for marketing costs in breaking into the European market, so net coast to VENKY'S being NIL). The remainder of the cost was met by ANDERSON and a number of others in his syndicate 
(including KEAN
).
 The scheme was sold to all involve as being 'win win' as the purchase price was assured of being returned to all members of the syndicate by TV money, and, in worst case relegation parachute payment (which totaled coincidentally approx 43 million!).
KEAN had one condition for his involvement, the removal of BIG SAM and his promotion to Club Manager. The removal of the established management 
infrastructure was essential in helping the group keep the deal secret, hence JOHN WILLIAMS, TOM FINN and the rest of the board members were thanked for their services and shown the door. 

The recent mortgage in Aug 2011 for 43million is assured against 
the TV money for this year and any subsequent parachute payment from 
relegation whether that come this year or in the future. 
This money has been returned to all members of the syndicate to cover their initial stake (hence the secrecy), thus any money made from here on in by way of transfers, TV money, sale of the club being total profit to the group. 
The Indians are basically passengers on this train, and as now they have 
their money back, they are totally uninterested in the future of the 
club. For them it remains what it always has been, a marketing tool. 
ANDERSON is keen to continue to use the club as a feeder for his younger less established players, he makes money by legitamatly charging massiv
ely inflated agent fees for all players coming in and out, and in the event of a player making a big breakthrough, gains millions for the syndicate in the sell on fee. KEAN, well he's just living the dream, he would never have made a Premier League manager as long as he lived, the best he could aspire to was being someones No 2 and that dream was 
5-10years away. The new improved deal recently signed by KEAN is in recognition and reward from all concerned as the others have all done very well out of the deal to date (he obviously had to be rewarded as well). He is the Manager and he's going nowhere, not because he's "un-sackable" but because he's delivered what he said and not withstanding - HE OWNS PART OF THE 
CLUB (albeit via his gangster friends in Glasgow)!
All of his little trips to INDIA are not about HIM answering to the INDIANS,  they are about HIM telling 
THEM what to do, when to speak and what to say, all the stuff that needs to be said in person, at risk of emails or phone calls being recorded! 
The whole thing would take a financial investigator years to uncover and is more or less impossible to trace as the paper trail all runs though VENKYS in INDIA!
They have the club pretty much sewn up.
The recent interest from the Middle East Quatari Petroleum, is of no interest to the syndicate as they only stand to gain a little over what they paid, the rewards from keeping the club are much more to them than that!
If this deal ever came out, people will be going to jail, so don't expect it to anytime soon.

Oh what fun to be a Rovers fan!"

Hendry's legendary status as a Rovers great is unquestionable. BUT his ability to manage and also to remain on an even keel have to be in doubt.

I remember him making his debut (against Ipswich in the FMC?) and how he used to bomb forward from defence. Not to mention the winning goal at Wembley....

But suggesting a failed manager is what we need right now is utter madness. We need a safe pair of hands that understands the Championship and knows how to win promotion. I still doubt however that any respectable and successful manaager would want to run the risk of tarnishing their reputation by being associated with a poorly run club and a floundering ship.

IMHO ALL SAD....BUT VERY, VERY TRUE.

I think people need to get a sense of perpective here.

No matter what the club means to you and me, however respected John Williams was in his role and his concerns, valid or not - Blackburn Rovers, THE COMPANY was sold lock, stock and barrel to a foreign land, whose selfish priorities, corruptions and employee treatment are well documented and known.

Venky's are indian owners. They as many Indian owned companies do, have priorities and traditons that are much different to ours. So whilst there methods and lack of communications may baffle you, it is not altogether a novel idea in their respective countries that they would not communicate, respect or take into consideration employees concerns, or in this case loyal supporters.

"I am very well connected with BRFC and have sat on this info for long  enough. You want to know whats going on at Ewood? Here it is... Steve KEAN (Minor 2nd team coach) is connected to a number of pretty serious Glasgow criminals who had a vast amount of money which required launde ring  (2-3million).& nbsp; As an employee of the club, KEAN was aware that ROVERS had been for sale for quite some time with very little serious interest from anyone. He knew the price and the money which would be required to purchase it.  He approached his management company KETARO (owned by ANDERSON) and put to him a business plan for the purchase of the club. This plan would give ANDERSON unofficial control of the club and enable him to 'legally'  perform the sort of transaction with existing and future players on his  books that got West Ham into trouble with the TEVEZ / MASSCARNO saga (the buying and selling of players being the only way to make money from a Premier League club). The consortium that KEAN suggested involved himself (representing the gangster money) being a shareholder and part owner in the little scheme. KENTRO unable to purchase a Premier League club to to league conflict rules, then scouted around emerging markets (India / China / Brazil) for a company to come in as the "official new owners" someone capable of satisfying the "fit and proper test" laid down by the Premier League.  VENKYS loved the idea, as they were already keen to attack the European market and expand  beyond India. The cost to VENKY'S for taking part in the venture was half the purchase price of 43million (This 20 million was set aside by VENKY'S anyway for marketing costs in breaking into the European market, so net coast to VENKY'S being NIL). The remainder of the cost was met by ANDERSON and a number of others in his syndicate  (including KEAN ).  The scheme was sold to all involve as being 'win win' as the purchase price was assured of being returned to all members of the syndicate by TV money, and, in worst case relegation parachute payment (which totaled coincidentally approx 43 million!).

KEAN TELLS LIES TO KEEP HIS JOB
Is there nothing Steve Kean will not sink to?
Under pressure Kean has told Rovers owner Mrs Anuradha Desai that he is key to keeping Junior Hoilett at Ewod Park.
Mrs Desai is anxious that Kean keeps the team together, goodness know why, they were dreadful.
There is not a ‘cat in hells’ chance of Kean keeping Hoilett. Hoilett is adamant to go and to go he will. I know that, Kean knows that, everyone knows that but Mrs Desai.
Kean will stoop to anything including lies to preserve 1.3 million per annum salary. Can know one at Venky’s see this?
His foul mouthed rant on You-Tube should have been enough in itself to sack him.
Who wants a uncouth, foul mouthed lout as manager of your football club. Apparently the deluded Mrs Desai does.
Neither I nor any of my family and friends will be sitting foot into Ewood Park whilst this lying, conniving, foul mouthed, uncouth lout is in charge.
What type of people does Mrs Desai employ in her company? What type of people does she think we are to except this man in charge of our football club; we are not poor uneducated, lower class peasants. We are intelligent hard working professional people who support our team.
Mrs Desai’s contempt for us is astounding. Our opinion’s count for nothing! Her contempt and dismissive attitude for Blackburn people borders on the worse type of racism. Even the large good and honest Indian community in Blackburn are embarrassed by her continued contempt towards us. She is dividing our multi-racial community by her arrogant attitude.
Blackburn Rovers are no more; they are a club heading for oblivion under Kean. We will plunge into the third tier of English football and out of sight forever.
I was ridiculed and abused when I forecast at the beginning of the season relegation from the Premiership was a certainty under Kean. Do not ignore me this time.
Kean has to go or it will rest in peace Blackburn Rovers.
Reg.
Footnote:
By retaining Kean Mrs Desai by association agrees with Kean’s comments that Sam Allardyce is a crook. I hope Big Sam sues the arse off both of them.

No, whilst he was "crawling back" he was busy embezzling 85 grand out of his retired neighbours. Not only that, but bragging about getting sloshed off the proceeds.

Why would we want to replace one alcoholic dirtbag scot with another....
What’s wrong with a hard drinking Scot? You say it as if drinking is a bad thing. I bet you all like the odd jar on a Friday after work.

Look at Fergie and what he has achieved in the game and then look how red his nose is. I’m not saying having a red hooter is the be all and end all in football management, but you have to admit it does go to show that you can drink AND be successful in the football game.

I say you should keep Kean – you lot just haven’t given him a chance yet. Instead of berating him, and calling him “Keanochio” and “Gollum” and "alkie". How is that constructive?

Get Dalglish and Souness in - working under Kean's guidance to help with the running of the team –I know Dalglish had a bad season but with Souness in attendance to help him I think it could work. Dalglish has a lot to offer to the game still and remember what he achieved with Backburn before.

Colin Hendry should get his chance as well in some capacity. He could train the defenders, Souness the midfielders and Dalglish could train the creative midfielders and strikers. One exercise I thought might work is the old “keepie uppy” with cans of beer. First with empty cans but then to raise the skill level with full cans. The first man to drop the can has to open it fizzing into an eyeball of his choosing and then down it in one. They’ll soon learn not to drop the can and pretty soon you’ll have a team that can perform keepie uppy with a full beer can better than any team in the land. Unless Arsenal do a similar thing in which case you’ll have the second best team in the land.

But getting back to Scotsmen – which you lot seem to have some kind of problem with. How about getting Gordon Strachan to work underneath Kean in some capacity as well as Souness and Dalglish and Hendry? I’m sure he will offer a level of ginger truculence which will challenge the Venky’s dominance. Perhaps Kean’s weakness – and this is his only weakness in a strong skill set, is that he is perhaps unwilling to tell it to the Venky’s straight. This probably comes out of good manners and respect, the mark of a good upbringing.

Also, I think they could establish a Boot Room, you know, the Boot Room that worked so well at Anfield? Where they would sit and drink whiskey and discuss tactics. Souey, Kean, Hendry and Strachan could prosper in this sort of environment.

I would draw the line at Alan Hansen though. I just don’t think the man has got it in him. He’d never last 2 weeks at the club because although he’s Scottish he doesn’t have the character of a real Scotsman. He isn't really a "man" at all, as I would define one.

They could put a dart board in the Boot room and get Jockey Wilson to join them. I know Jockey’s become withdrawn from society recently , but maybe they could put a bed in the Boot Room and let jockey live and sleep there so when they come down after a home victory to celebrate with a few pints o’ heavy, Jockey would already be waiting for them to play darts, with a smile and a toothless grin with a bottle of Bells whiskey in his hand. It’d be great for morale.

Or would you rather have the namby pamby politically correct Gary Lineker in charge? You probably would.

You see I get the impression with you Lancastrians that you’ve allowed yourselves to be walked all over by these new owners. This would never happen in Scotland.

Or indeed in Yorkshire. If this were Leeds, if the supporters wanted the owners out they would darned well drum them out of town. They’ve got that bit more fire and passion in them have the Yorkshire folk. And they don’t allow people to take liberties.

Blackburn supporters take note.

I say you should keep Kean – you lot just haven’t given him a chance yet. Instead of berating him, and calling him “Keanochio” and “Gollum” and "alkie". How is that constructive? Get Dalglish and Souness in - working under Kean's guidance to help with the running of the team –I know Dalglish had a bad season but with Souness in attendance to help him I think it could work. Dalglish has a lot to offer to the game still and remember what he achieved with Backburn before. Colin Hendry should get his chance as well in some capacity. He could train the defenders, Souness the midfielders and Dalglish could train the creative midfielders and strikers. One exercise I thought might work is the old “keepie uppy” with cans of beer. First with empty cans but then to raise the skill level with full cans. The first man to drop the can has to open it fizzing into an eyeball of his choosing and then down it in one. They’ll soon learn not to drop the can and pretty soon you’ll have a team that can perform keepie uppy with a full beer can better than any team in the land. Unless Arsenal do a similar thing in which case you’ll have the second best team in the land. But getting back to Scotsmen – which you lot seem to have some kind of problem with. How about getting Gordon Strachan to work underneath Kean in some capacity as well as Souness and Dalglish and Hendry? I’m sure he will offer a level of ginger truculence which will challenge the Venky’s dominance. Perhaps Kean’s weakness – and this is his only weakness in a strong skill set, is that he is perhaps unwilling to tell it to the Venky’s straight. This probably comes out of good manners and respect, the mark of a good upbringing. Also, I think they could establish a Boot Room, you know, the Boot Room that worked so well at Anfield? Where they would sit and drink whiskey and discuss tactics. Souey, Kean, Hendry and Strachan could prosper in this sort of environment. I would draw the line at Alan Hansen though. I just don’t think the man has got it in him. He’d never last 2 weeks at the club because although he’s Scottish he doesn’t have the character of a real Scotsman. He isn't really a "man" at all, as I would define one. They could put a dart board in the Boot room and get Jockey Wilson to join them. I know Jockey’s become withdrawn from society recently , but maybe they could put a bed in the Boot Room and let jockey live and sleep there so when they come down after a home victory to celebrate with a few pints o’ heavy, Jockey would already be waiting for them to play darts, with a smile and a toothless grin with a bottle of Bells whiskey in his hand. It’d be great for morale. Or would you rather have the namby pamby politically correct Gary Lineker in charge? You probably would. You see I get the impression with you Lancastrians that you’ve allowed yourselves to be walked all over by these new owners. This would never happen in Scotland. Or indeed in Yorkshire. If this were Leeds, if the supporters wanted the owners out they would darned well drum them out of town. They’ve got that bit more fire and passion in them have the Yorkshire folk. And they don’t allow people to take liberties. Blackburn supporters take note. The Mighty Weetabix

Jocky would go straight on the board, considering he's dead; it does seem to be a pre-requisite for anyone in "authority" at the club though.

From the neck up anyway.

Control yourself, Hendry is ace, don't compare him to kean, you are obviously 9 years old.
Hendry is ace is he? Might want to do some research into his current antics you clown.
Hendry's legendary status as a Rovers great is unquestionable. BUT his ability to manage and also to remain on an even keel have to be in doubt.

I remember him making his debut (against Ipswich in the FMC?) and how he used to bomb forward from defence. Not to mention the winning goal at Wembley....

But suggesting a failed manager is what we need right now is utter madness. We need a safe pair of hands that understands the Championship and knows how to win promotion. I still doubt however that any respectable and successful manaager would want to run the risk of tarnishing their reputation by being associated with a poorly run club and a floundering ship.

IMHO ALL SAD....BUT VERY, VERY TRUE.
Completely agree.
So whats happened since I've been out, Oh my suggestion of Hendry wasn't very pallatable.
So whilst Colin, the big fella, was trying to cope with the very slow and painful death of his wife, which started in 2002 and ended 7 years later in 2009, whilst raising his children he turned to booze and gambling to remove himself. Whilst of course also doing his coaching badges. Eventually it all beacme too much and he resigned from management to spend the last days with his long suffering wife. The big guy, the leader, the collosuss was absolutely helpless, he could do nothing, as big and strong and brave as he was, he could do nothing, so he drowned himself.
Then you guys come along whilst he was crawling back onto shore, and stab him in the back. Just like steve kean Proper chaps.
I'm disgusted to breathe the same air.
C'mon Colin me an you'll kick some arse whilst this lot blub into there bovrils.
@ Keep Darwen Green...

No, whilst he was "crawling back" he was busy embezzling 85 grand out of his retired neighbours. Not only that, but bragging about getting sloshed off the proceeds.

Now that might be fine in your eyes, whilst you're sat there in your Braveheart apple catchers but it's not the kind of neighbourly activity that sits well with me.
Still say he's ten times the guy Kean is. So he's had some problems, someone like you would have easily been able to cope wouldn't you? You backstabber
Not denying he's "ten times the man Kean is", but he's not the right man for the job, simple as that, if that's backstabbing someone then so be it.

I think you need to take the Colin Hendry tinted spectacles off and take a look at the bigger picture.

If Hendry got a job at Rovers then the media circus would be rubbing there hands,due to his actions in ripping of lots of so called "friends". He would have to go almost as soon as he would get the job. Also he didn't turn to alcohol after the death of his wife as he had been a raging alcoholic years before that. I remember when he was injured years back, that he was driven round pubs in the back of a van cos he was that drunk he couldn't get in the passenger-side door.

Keans plan is coming together Agnew on the board expect Colin Hendry as manager next,Kean has got Mrs D in his pocket.

How long would Colin Hendry last as manager? The first time he said no to Venkeys he would be out on his backside, as would any manager who said no. I think this could be why they are keeping Kean, they can't find a yes man to replace him.
Colin Hendry the man who let Jack Walker down after signing a new contract and then asking for a transfer after Rangers came in for him. Judas!!!!
