Ahead of the forthcoming home match against Norwich City on Saturday 21st April 2012 sections of Blackburn Rovers supporters will take part in a ‘community march’ from Blackburn town centre to Ewood Park.

Both Blackburn Rovers and the town of Blackburn deserve better, therefore it is intended that a community march will take place prior to this game and will carry the message ‘Blackburn wants its Rovers back’

The relevant legal notices were served to the authorities yesterday and we await their reply in relation to any restrictions regarding this. We are hoping to have further information in relation to this prior to the forthcoming Action Group open floor meeting at Longshaw club on Sunday.

I actually think the time as come now for all rovers fans to take a stance as say enough is enough and everybody to join the community march. Its not just about the club anymore its about community spirit or the lack of it if rovers get relegated because they will struggle to survive as a football club in the lower divisions we need to push for venkys to sell at least this way we may have a good chance that a real buyer who has the interest of the club at heart may purchase it and be rid of the asset strippers once and for all i urge the whole community of blackburn and surrounding areas to get behind this march from the town centre even if some of the fans are boycotting please attend and show solidarity THE TOWN NEEDS YOU AND THE CLUB NEEDS YOU

I'll be there. Said a while back I thought a march from town Was a good idea
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

It would be effective if loads of fans stood outside for the game. A thousand would be significent. Making lots of noise. Outside players entrance...

I'm sorry, I just do not understand the strategy of continual marches. They will never get, say, 15,000 people doing it, so will always be open to the interpretation that it's a minority. Where the petition signed by 30,000 people delivered by Jack Straw to the Minister for Sport which would have been much easier to achieve and much better able to be spun into the right kind of new coverage?

Marches may make the marchers feel like they are "doing something", but that makes it therapy for fans rather than an effective mechanism to dislodge the owners.

Oh, and the press release is way too long, unfocused and appears on first reading to be one long gripe about looming relegation.

Has there been a petition?

Marching is the only way to keep focus on the current plight we find ourselves in Exiled, clearly we need positive media coverage, and with relegation just around the corner now could be the time to gain that positive media coverage. You're correct in that marching does make the marcher feel like he/she is making a difference, but thats not a negative, its a positive in my book (Christ I sound like bloody Kean now) :wacko:

I also like the slight change of direction thats put this as an issue for the town and not just the football club. The football club puts the town on the map, the football club employs the people of the town and both will suffer if we go down.

Oh mercerman, come out come out wherever you are! :tu:

I think you are right there , I would leave it be and let things take their natural course .
Personally Norwich could well be another Bolton ..As for the Wigan game if it all goes wrong , I would be advising Kean to leave the ground long before the end of the game ...

I wonder what odds there are on our owners attending either game ?

I wonder if people would sign one before entering the ground. We may not have fans who will chant but perhaps they'd sign a form?

I will be staying as long as it takes after the Wigan match to get close to Kean so I can tell him exactly how I feel
