Naïve, ill-advised, taken advantage of, incompetent, or simply out of their depth, all different viewpoints that fans will have towards the Rovers owners who this week mark 10 years in charge.

Yet a decade on, so little is known about the owners, or their intentions.

Just what keeps the owners of Venkateshwara Hatcheries, a £2billion Indian poultry conglomerate, wanting to be in charge of an English second tier football club, 4,500 miles away in a North West milling town that has seen them be the brunt of ridicule and losses run into hundreds of thousands of pounds a week? Is it pride, honour, not wanting to be seen as giving up, a love for the club? Does it even really matter?

Those behind the scenes insist their commitment and desire is as strong as ever, and never have they contemplated outside investment, never mind selling up.

Whenever we do next hear from the owners it will be a big occasion. The length of time since their last communication has dictated that.

It is approaching eight years since they last attended a match at Ewood as a collective, though there has been a representative of the family present on occasion, as recently as December 2018.

When they choose to return to the directors’ box, for some, anything less than an open apology in the centre circle wouldn’t be enough. So even simply attending a game seems far from straightforward and requiring of a level of mediation.

We have reached a point, for a section, where the rhetoric has changed to one where they would welcome the owners back to Ewood Park, draw a line under what has gone before and move forward. Less forgive and forget, more look beyond.

Others will be happy with the benefactor model, that the owners continue to finance the club but do so away from the limelight.

Still, there is a section of supporters who will point out that Rovers isn’t a charity, feel let down and angry and believe the owners are still simply paying for the mistakes made at the start of their tenure.

But that’s okay, this is your football club, one that is the lifeblood of the community, a focal point of the town, and your opinion.

Some will understand all three viewpoints, and that’s fine too. But whatever your personal position, the owners’ commitment to the club in terms of longevity and financing, shows no signs of abating.

Money makes the world go round, and in Rovers’ case, it’s the owners’ level of spending that has been the one constant. There are those who worry what would happen were Venky’s to walk away, but Rovers aren’t alone in being solely reliant on their owners, and there is no doubting they have pockets deep enough to offset the club’s losses.

Simply spending money shouldn’t be enough to absolve them of any criticism however, having overseen two relegations, seven managers of distinctly different success, and at times the club has lurched from one crisis to another. As the name above the door, the buck stops with them.

There have been some disastrous appointments, not just in the managerial hotseat, with Shebby Singh and his constant PR own goals, and Paul Senior, a director of football operations who arrived on the eve of a transfer window closing and fled the scene of the accident after relegation to League One, being just two.

For so long we were left wondering just who was actually running the football club.

Yet while Rovers find themselves 18 places further down the football pyramid, things actually feel as settled now as they have done during any period of the last 10 years, quite the going given the current state the world finds itself in.

For a certain generation of Rovers fan this could be the first time they have had real hope for a brighter future, which could point to how turbulent a time the last decade has been, but there at least feels a direction, a plan, a level of accountability.

Contact lines between Ewood Park and India are smoother than they have been for some time, and while not always the ideal scenario, there appears to be the right level of leaving the day-to-day running of the club to those employed to do so, but still an interest and overseeing of key decisions.

You will undoubtedly have read, and hear still more, in the coming days about the attempts to bring in Ronaldinho and Raul, social media accounts passing off stories as ‘banter’ with the obligatory attached emojis, videos of David Dunn eating a piece of chicken and pictures of protests and banners.

That will be the sole mention here. The fans who lived through it need no reminder of how they were let down by the authorities, ignored for so long, their complaints passed off as simply a vendetta or a witch-hunt.

Of course there was anger and protests, this was a club who was having the very things it stood for chipped away at. The most successful town club in the country who fight to punch above their weight was dragged into the murky world of football, of unscrupulous agents using the good name of Blackburn Rovers for their own gain.

The saddest thing about the last 10 years? That some supporters of this great club became so disillusioned that they have drifted off into the wilderness and may never return. Years of attending Ewood undone, and work remains ongoing to repair relationships with a fanbase disenchanted by poor management at so many levels.

Factions were even created within the same support base.

It would seem strange that to a degree it has taken a football manager, and dropping into the third tier for the first time in 37 years, to help launch something of a revival.

For some there will never be redemption, others just want to see Rovers - 25 years from their famous Premier League title success - back fighting with the big boys, though football is in a much different place now as to a decade ago.

History cannot be re-written, or undone, but the hope is the chapters of mismanagement are consigned to the past.

As Venky’s mark 10 years, the club has just passed 145. Whoever the owners, they are merely custodians. This remains your Rovers.
