Rovers Blog: We’re on the slide – and it’s down to Venky’s
LOOK on the bright side, at least the East Lancashire Derby could be back on the cards next season.
Apart from a reunion with our dear friends from down the motorway, I can’t see any positives on the Rovers horizon.
Nobody in the right mind would expected us to go to Arsenal and get anything, but you’d expect us to go down with a bit more of a fight. Pathetic is the only word that springs to mind.
In between all that were the severe words of a man treated very harshly by Rovers fans since being brought to the club by Paul Ince.
Keith Andrews’s Ewood Park nightmare finally came to an end as he sealed a move to West Brom.
I have argued with other Rovers fans about this until I’ve been blue in the face, but Andrews was not as bad as he was made out to be.
His comments are a cause for concern. Having left the club he has been able to lift the lid on the way he was treated. But his is just one situation.
What is going on with all the other players in our squad? And with Chris Samba so desperate to move, claiming he has been lied to, then there is no reason to believe the Andrews situation is an isolated incident.
We are going down, we have to just come to terms with that. And it is Venky’s fault we find ourselves in this position. They have taken the best-run club in the Premier League and turned it into a laughing stock in just one year. That’s quite an achievement.
