you Mr Nixon, is having a field day with this :lol: . Im surprised you havent, told some of the posters "told you so" :P


Yes, I am...and no, I don't have to.

How good to have a really interesting story going on that could shoot so many ways.

Better than 'business as usual' at least.

Sounds like a done deal then, hopefully we will learn more about their plans soon. BBC Sports article for those who haven't read it yet plus an audio interview with Simon Garner:

Sorry if this has already been answered,

But does anyone know why Mr Syeds bid seemed to simmer out? he was so confident of buying the club at one stage he went public with tv interviews etc.

SSN are hoping to get something from Syed later today.
Thanks to Tyrone Shoelaces, this was the first team I ever saw:
Rovers v Middesborough F. A. Cup 5th round. Sat 5th of Feb, 1962. Att, 33,714.

Else! Taylor Newton, Clayton Woods McGrath, Douglas Lawther Pickering Byrom Ratcliffe.

We won 2-1 ( Pickering, Lawther ) setting up an away tie at Fulham in the next round. We drew that 2-2. Before the replay the draw had paired us with our old friends Burnley in the semi finals.
Typically Rovers, we played kean in the replay and lost 1-0 in front of another 33,000 crowd ! of our five forwards four were actually born in the town of Blackburn ! Now that will never happen again.

You're having a good day today, Mr Nixon. Not had a chicken joke for what - an hour or so?

The question then is 'do you stick with a proven survival fighter?' or do you bring in someone to carry out your 'visionary' schemes?

Sticking with Sam seems the most sensible option until the end of the season but, if he knows he's going to get the boot, is it the best option? Sure, Sam still needs to look after his reputation, but Rovers being relegated can always be pointed to a lack of investment rather than Sam.

It's a big, big decision for them to make. Worst case scenario? At least we will now have the finances to survive a drop if it does happen and launch an immediate comeback. Something that we probably couldn't do with our current set up.

I think Sam has to be given until the rest of the season. Maybe a nice transfer kitty (which I doubt he'd get anywhere else, now) will be a nice incentive for him.

:rover: i was against the ist indian takeover,the guys were obviously using our club for pr,but the latest buyers leave me thinking is there any justice in the world.we will be expecting these guys to pour millions into the club,yet they have made there money paying 3rd world wages,and come from a country were a large percentage of the country are starving,i expect when this deal is done the club will suffer from bad press because of the owners :wacko: :brfc:

If that happens, we will have Kevin Davies up front with Delap as the provider.

People can joke all they like but it will be Rovers who have the biggest laugh. Another 20+ years of supremacy over their close rivals.


im currently living in india, and i can tell you as a claret that nothing irritates me more than seeing ******* rovers all over the news

a quote from the above link -

"........Venky’s owners join IMG Worldwide Inc., a sports-management agency, and Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest man.........."

From the article I'm not sure if IMG and Mukesh Ambani are part of the takeover team or rivals in football promotion in India. I strongly suspect the latter though.

Quick question – has any premier league team played a pre-season friendly in India yet?? If so, when?

This article mentions Mukesh Ambani and his interest in growing football in India. Is he in anyway related to the deal - or was this just a general comment ?

The way I saw it was that they were just mentioning those big business men who are starting to wake up to the fact that Football is on a boom over there, and considering the vast population, they are seeing opportunities.

Hopefully if we are 1st in, we may benefit from this in a big way!
