[Archived] Possible Protest at Spurs Game


Recommended Posts

I think you guys are totally misdirected. If you're going to protest, do it against Venky's. They put Kean in charge, and they didn't deliver on the transfer front. Just seems to me people doesn't want to face the real problem, maybe because they feel they can't do anything with it. When (more than if) Kean goes, be prepare to be underwhelmed while they try to find a new yes man that spends half the season travelling to India.

you might be right, if you are then the club is doomed.

Hopefully they would get the right person in.

I do agree that if we lose to QPR and Kean is not sacked, it might need to turn to Venkys.

This is becoming a battle between us fans and Venkys. We must not give up or back down. We all know Steve Kean is not the man for Blackburn Rovers, but Venkys are being stubborn and stupid. When are they going to admit there made a major mistake?

This protest should be directed at Venkys and Steve Kean.

Come on Venkys you have made a huge blunder, sort it out before it's too late!

This thread is sensible, considered, calm, accepting of others views, respectful, creative and more or less in agreement on the big issues. Good to see and long may it continue.

Back to the point, I was very, very impressed at the sit-in protest and I know that word has spread throughout our fanbase that it was well supported, enjoyable, effective and focused. I for one was unsure whether to stay at the end of the game but decided to sit in my seat and wait to see what developed. I think many others did the same which is one reason the total numbers may have been up towards the thousand mark.

I guarantee that if we spread the word on here and via other general forums we could double the numbers staying behind to protest (or just watch) after the next 2 home games. This will be very effective as a worldwide televisual statement.

A couple of words of warning:

  • The weather had a significant impact on the sit in numbers. Rain and cold will keep the numbers down
  • I think the stewards and police will be more organised for future sit in protests so the riversiders and enclosure fans may not be allowed into the Blackburn End which was a real bonus on Saturday
  • I also think that anti-Kean or Venkys banners may not be tolerated in future so possibly keep some of them up your jumper until the sit in to ensure they make the news

Finally, if we can ensure there is no leader of the protest, the police will not be able to single one person out to act as spokesperson and the stewards will need to eject over a thousand peaceful fans which will definitely make the main news as well as sports news.

I was inspired and somewhat calmed by the wide range of every different type of Rovers fan from all sides of the ground who were prepared to stand (sit) behind the protest. Even celebrity protesters like Mr Mancini joined in.

Who knows what will happen next time.

Tell all your non-protesting, non-commital mates and family that this sort of peaceful action restores faith that we are a devoted, collective, passionate group who just want our great club back in safe hands.

I have a feeling that the protest is going to increase ten fold for the spurs game!

Especially if that weasel unsurprisingly wriggles out of getting sacked whilst in India.

A result at QPR wouldnt IMO alter fans perceptions of kean, he alienates supporters every time he gives a presser, and there's no coming back from his present situation, it's just a pity that he and venkys are on a different planet.

KEAN OUT NOW!!!

You have to be under the age of 18 to sit in the Darwen End so thats a non-starter.

I'll move then, apparently being 37 and having spent most of my Rovers supporting life as a BBE season ticket holder and wanting to sit where the atmosphere is makes me under 18, oh no, hang on...

Get over the whole BBE "holier than thou" sh!t Dave !!!!

EDIT: We're all in the same stadium :rolleyes:

I am gob smacked at the fact more people are not protesting... Society has become too damn passive!!!

Come on guys we should at least have 10,000 strong??!!

I mean waiting behind for 15-30 minutes to influence the club we all love is that really that difficult?!?!

I genuinely think the venkys are trying (and failing) to do the right thing.. Just naivety in the highest order!!

I'll be away on holiday in the states but will wear a "Kean Out" t shirt in protest on the day.

Just another thought,don't know if its been mentioned but why not have a silent protest and turn your backs on the game at kick off for say a minute or so. :brfcsmilie:

Think planning a protest is silly. :(

Best thing to do is simply get yourself to the next game and if we are doing sh&te then at the end call for Keans head. :)

Me and a few others have been very busy RE a protest at the Spurs game (Should Kean still be in charge)

The plan is:

1 .A March will again be held, Venue and Route still being finalised as it requires Police co-operation, I think there will be more participation this time, (A few different routes and venues are being submitted for approval)

2. There will again be a after match sit in, again I think numbers will be greater this time

3 .Anything which happens during the match will be down to the fans, and will NOT be part of anything which is organised.

4. An open fans meeting is also being planned for during the week leading upto the Spurs Match (Venue and date to be confirmed)

Please support these plans and take part in ALL, or as many as possible

P.S Please no dogs

We should be calling for Kean's head anyway

Yes true but calling for Keans head when we are losing a game is fine but planning another protest to do it is crazy. How many protests do you think it'll take to get rid of him?

Forgot to mention, the last protest did it's job, we highlighted the fact that we wanted Kean out and it was broadcasted to the world which is what we wanted but now shouting Kean out after games or with a few mins remaining when we're getting best is the only way forward by getting others to join in. :)

Glenn it's great you going to these lengths as it shows your loyalty to Rovers but i'm sorry i don't think a protest march is a very good idea sorry and yes maybe you will get some more on it this time but it will only be 10's and not 100's :(

Kean out chants are the future and the only way forward in my eyes and this way you'll get more people involved as it's at the end of the game that counts.

I can understand your frustration, but as we have started we must see it through until the end. If we back off now, we have as good as thrown the towel in.

Kean chants on the ground can't be taken as a guarantee (I guess you mean during the game) .

The wheels in motion for this have been going for days and an event page has been active too for days, Not brought it to this particular forum until today as still lots to be worked on.

A March will be difficult for me as i'm in plaster, but most of the people who Marched last time, wish to do so again, So if I have to hop for a few miles, I will do.

Any sort of protest will always bring opposition but this is one which will definately go ahead

Is it a pre-match protest?

Will it still happen if we beat QPR say 3-1?

seeing QPR lost 6-0 or something, I'm not sure what that result will be a loss will be massive, and win some of the heat will slightly ease probably until a Spurs defeat.

I wouldn't do a pre-match march when nobody knows for sure the results. We can be 90% certain Blackburn will lose, but I was 99% certain Arsenal would beat us.
