philipl Posted February 28, 2011 Share Posted February 28, 2011 I know I haven't posted anything about this esteemed gentleman in a while and I am conscious of certain legal threats made from certain quarters to certain web sites and messageboards as should anybody else who is thinking of posting on this subject. But whilst we are feeling mighty sore at the Venky's for taking bad advice in the way they have run Rovers thus far, I think it only fair that the source of much of that advice be afforded due recognition. Mr A's first appearance at Ewood was as a compulsive conspiratorial whisperer in the ear of Balaji whilst watching Chelsea at home. Something seemed to be desperately afoot- after all even Ewood isn't so quiet that you have to whisper in the ear of the next person for your neighbours not to be at risk of over hearing you. Of course we had the series of marquee non-signings which Anderson was or was not involved in but none of them came off. As for real permanent signings, it is March tomorrow and we have seen neither of them in anger whilst the January loanees have yet to distinguish themselves. Ripping Formica off the Monaco table top was a coup but then why was he getting affixed there if not because of the weird episode of the Red Star loan deal which smelt worse than a bad market day at Fleetwood used to. Our esteemed owners have called Mr Anderson "family" and there is no shortage of quotations and anecdotes pointing to Mr Anderson being the first person they talk to about all things Rovers. After all, marquee-seaker Balaji apart, the Rao family admit they know nothing about football so all these wonderful decisions and indecisions they are making have to be coming from somewhere. Perhaps in the ultimate irony now that John Williams out of the way, Mrs D will insist Mr A use his base at Brockhall to fire or demote Messrs Kean and Jensen who in fact employ Mr A to represent their employment interests. She probably has to if she is to protect the family's £54m interest in the Rovers. Which will prove the sweeter, the fees for representing Kean and Jensen or the advisary fees by Rovers/Venky's? So here's to you Mr Anderson for messing up our club. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
