Fascinating podcast and great to know that people like Ian are applying consistent pressure in Venky's.

Much of what he explained about Venky's way of doing business and the business structure they implement at all of their units only goes to show how little they know about the game and business of football.

Naive is not the word.

What? Did you hop off the planet for 24 hours while we played bolton??

I love how people mention this 'abuse' without having anything to back it up.

It's not the first time fans have chanted for a manager to go.

Enjoyed 99% of it. Nice work Wen and the team.

However, can somebody explain what is 'inhumane' about 'KEAN OUT'? And how it tis worse than anything else in the history of managers getting it in the neck?

I keep hearing it, but there's been no answer.

Another excellent podcast. Really enjoyed hearing Ian's views and insights, which helped add to what we knew. He spoke well and passionately about Rovers. I am confident he would be able to help facilitate a consortium to buy the club if Venkys have no interest in working with him, Wayne Wild etc to improve communication and make the Venkys ownership remotely possible to continue.

Venkys Out.

I think any talk of a takeover or a consortium being put together is very premature.

But any remote possibility of a way out of this Venkys-enforced nightmare is going to give some hope. I firmly believe that until they sell up there will be no enjoyment in following Rovers- I am currently hating it. So I'll continue to hope that something will change - although it will be this summer at the absolute earliest.

I guess the only way this will happen is for someone to make Venkys an offer. Until that occurs there is 0% chance of improvement.

Full agree with this sentiment. However, it has to be a very open and public offer, in my opinion, in order to force some kind of public response from them. The traditional behind closed doors approach is not the way to handle this situation due to how extreme it is in nature.

How refreshing to hear an intelligent, articulate and well-informed perspective on the ownership

This is what we need,FANS of the club back in charge,finger on the pulse of the club and community,engaging in meaningful dailogue with the fans with respect flowing both ways.

Comes across very well..I just pray he can somehow get things moving before its frankly too late for this once proud club.
