I really don't want to be moaning Minnie because in another season under other circumstances I think I'd have loved this and so would my kids. But at this point of such an awful season - particularly after the last few performances on the pitch - and given that it's the 'Community march' day, does anyone else find it a wee bit of a distasteful, if not downright cynical attempt to be trying to win us round just now?

I think that they have purposely done this so Mr Newsham can come out and say the protesters cannot come anywhere near that area

its purely PR.
Its the club saying to the media - "Look at all this we are trying to do for the fans and how do they repay us? By protesting."
The problem is the media will probably lap it up and take the Venkys and Keans side again.

It seems like the sort of thing Rovers used to do, pre Venkys. I say credit where credit is due.

To be honest watching a bunch of footballing freestylers do keepy-ups whilst drinking beer is a much more attractive prospect than going in the ground and watching the game!

Then again my season ticket is in the Darwen end, so both my support and opinion is not required by the club.

Hi Nick,

The Fan Zone was promoted at the last match on the Big Screen and has been mentioned on the official website on articles regarding this weekend's match. It's also on the backpage of today's and tomorrow's edition of the LT and Bee radio have been pushing it on air aswell.

In addition, we sent a SMS about the Fan Zone this afternoon to STH

Don't read the LT except online occasionally. Was on holiday when the last match was on ( thank goodness by the sounds of it) Don't listen to local radio - it tends to be for old people or kids. No longer use the official site - I'm far too likely to come across a picture of Kean. Don't get SMS alerts because I don't give out my mobile number to all and sundry and especially not to Rovers atm. However, I am a season ticket holder and do read my emails. Have I had one of those?

I only got an SMS at 16.45 today.
Edit: Got the email on Wed but it was entitled 'The double' so I deleted it without reading it. Only happened to catch the ad on the back of the smellygraph by chance. Guess it was more interesting to read the small print of the ad than stomach any quotes from our great leader.

Mmmm if there is less people at the fun day than on the march, can we issue a press release stating just 1% attended?:blush:

I take it the Raos won't be partaking in this Fanzone - as hindus I presume real ale and hog roast won't exactly be their cup of tea.

In different circumstances I would be championing this initiative, a great idea but organised 7 months too late.
As it stands it all seems to be organised to clash with the planned march. There are a lot of good people still working at Rovers but unfortunately they can not effect what needs to be done - that being a change in "manager" (i use that term loosely where Kean is concerned).

Pretty sure they have no objection to alcohol and Hindus eat pork don't they?

Anyway it shows how little I go out now is 3 a pint considered good value these days?
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.

I got the text at 16:45.

I deleted any previous emails, simply because I get way too much crap from Rovers so it all gets deleted - thanks to the "deal of the day".

My fault. Still no childcare anyway so match only me thinks!

I said I'd look !!!!!

Didn't say I'd shake hands with the devil........

Once they realise I'm a Darwen ender I'd be escorted out, strip searched and DNA taken for future reference.
