mogster Posted February 27, 2011 Share Posted February 27, 2011 If only Venkys had been warned what a mistake they were making at the time. Oh, wait a minute - EVERY RESPECTED FOOTBALLER, EX-FOOTBALLER, MANAGER, JOUNALIST, PUNDIT AND FAN FROM WHICHEVER CLUB YOU CARE TO MENTION who were asked about it thought that sacking Sam Allardyce (and not replacing him with an experienced manager) was an error and the Venky trio didn't have enough knowledge of football. We all feared the worst but hoped for the best (apart from Vinjay who has blind faith in anyone who isn't the Trust). I still stand by my thoughts just after the sacking which I placed on the 'Your thoughts on recent events' thread. It warned that they had better have a good plan including manager, chairman and backroom staff. I also said they needed to be advised well and employ a press officer to do ALL the talking (although John Williams was rather good at that). We have gone backwards in all respects and time doesn't seem to be healing the situation. Imagine one of us buying an Irish Hurling team. Would you go straight in and sack the manager without a thought for the fans or the 125 year history that hurling can boast, believing the propaganda spouted by a young couch, who you are so impressed with you want to make him manager, without checking out any facts - like what has previously happened when such a promotion has been made and has it EVER been succesful. I would head for as many experts as possible and take a cross section of advice and make my decisions based on that. I'm 41 now so that's about 34 years supporting Rovers. Because of the cheap season tickets I have recently been bringing my family. This was not so good under Paul Ince but with the excellent home record under Sam, match days were good days out. Our season tickets run out in the summer when, for the first time ever I will be reserving judgement on renewal. If by then this doesn't look like being a well run and structured football club - this will be my last season actively supporting Rovers. I can't belive I'm saying this but I can't condone what is happening! They'll always be in my heart. Until a couple of months ago I had thought a 'self destruct' button was something reserved for Science Fiction and Newcastle United but it seems it does exist - and for some weird, inexplicable, devastating reason our new owners pressed it!
