Can you imagine the lengths the John Williams era BRFC would be going to this summer. Just makes me so very sad seeing these people who couldn’t give a shiny shite ‘representing’ my club, wearing

I’ve fairly regularly regaled the forum over the years about when I had a chat with John Williams who was told on his first day by the directors that we ‘have 8,000 fans’. The board (remember tho

For me, the ‘club’ is now what that famous Bobby Robson quote largely described it as - I.e us fans keeping the flame going though our collective bond and histories. That shell of an organisation

Which is why the problem remains with the people who appointed Waggott in the first place and who are happy for him and Mowbray etc to continue in position.  No wonder the owners are happy to keep them in position to attract all the flak and take it off them.  If the owners didn't like the job he was doing they could remove him - in the same way they've done with other administrators they've employed.  Clearly they must be happy with the way things are going or they would act.

It is alleged that Mowbray selected Waggott. What then?

If a manager ingratiates himself to the point that fans will trust him no matter what, and in parallel the FF endorse Waggott’s pricing and other initiatives, then why wouldn’t Venkys?

In any event, who exactly would do the firing of either of them and how? By fax?

It took Singh and then Senior to make changes previously and before then Shaw/Agnew - at least the latter had to face the shame of their actions/inactions locally (my God, right now they seem like saner times). Singh was only ever a temporary advisor and Paul Senior resigned so if Senior had dug his heels in who would have removed him? It seems patently obvious that Venkys are not running the club but want to do everything by proxy.

How likely are we to see them employ someone above Waggott? I’d suggest not, so it appears we are stuck with Mowbray (man of dignity and honour) and Waggott (a man who has by his own admission already “done everything we can”) until they see fit to leave.

Yes Venkys could change, much in the way a leopard could change its spots, and decide to get more involved. Desai could travel over and personally remove them both, but in the meantime we are watching the club suffer while thousands of fans have walked away.

And somehow Mowbray and Waggott are still held harmless!

Season ticket update:

Clubs definitely or possibly in the Championship next season who have tickets on sale now:

Huddersfield - yes - from £249

Middlesbrough - yes - from £420

Barnsley* - yes - from £235

Sheffield Utd - yes - from £357

Stoke - yes - from £294

Coventry - yes - from £210

Forest - yes - from £365

Luton - yes - from £400

Bristol City - yes - from £355

Cardiff - yes - from £249

Swansea* - yes - from £249

Bournemouth* - yes - from £550

Brentford* - yes - from £419

QPR - yes - from £225

Millwall - yes - from £385

Peterborough - yes - from £349

Sunderland* - yes - from £340

Oxford* - yes - from £299

Lincoln* - yes - from £359

* - don't know if they will be in League One or Championship yet still on sale

Clubs definitely or possibly in the Championship next season who haven't bothered yet:

Rovers

Preston

Birmingham

Derby

Reading

Fulham*

West Brom*

Hull*

Blackpool*

* have changed or might yet change division

 

So this means we are one of five clubs not to do anything yet despite being clear as to our position and league status and knowing that with our capacity/stadium social distancing could be achieved with relative ease compared to others with much smaller grounds or bigger demand. You can also excuse Derby and Birmingham to some degree given they were fighting relegation until the last couple of weeks and Derby are in the middle of a takeover saga.

And just look at those prices. Assuming Waggott freezes or increases prices then we will be joint fourth most expensive in the division behind only Middlesbrough, Bournemouth and Brentford. Two of whom have been in promotion contention and have little grounds in much more affluent areas than Blackburn.

Can't wait to see what he has got up his sleeve this summer.

The club called me the other day to pick up my flag after it being on display since last summer.

I don’t live in Blackburn so collecting it mid week whilst I work isn’t exactly possible.

With both Blues & Roverstore being open again, why they cannot do it on a Saturday is beyond me, it’s not like there won’t be club staff at the ground.

Just another example of the club being utterly thoughtless when it comes to the fans.

 

**edit**
 

My reason for putting this comment in this thread is that I think we’ll be waiting a while for season tickets, because they treat us with such contempt.

I think Waggot intentionally leaves it as late as possible so he can firstly look at what other clubs have done, and based on that then decides what he can then get away with/fleece us by.

Just had a look at the Huddersfield site to see if they had anything on Rhodes and saw their season ticket offering.

I really don't know why we don't do the same. £299 flat fee for all adults (which is a very good deal IMHO) which will hopefully attract more / retain more which equates to more shirt sales, pies etc. etc.

When we had the £199 season ticket offer 10 years ago we had big crowds. Now granted it was in the PL, but it still generated a big increase in year on year sales so I imagine it will have swelled the coffers enormously due to tacit sales on other items.

Why does anyone care?

Nobody should be buying them.

 

Last season he said he couldn't sell something when he didn't know what he could sell. So he will have the same mindset now. Especially with this Bolton variant being rife. He will certainly wait until after 21st June before anything comes out. As it stands today he can only offer 4000 for sale with a socially distanced seating plan. No away fans or walk ons etc.

Not sure you can call an increase of some 45 infections as being rife!

Anyone can see the daily infection rates are minimal and should not be stopping season ticket sales, commercial progress and general day to day communications with the clubs supporters.

Waggot and co are ignorant to these kinds of things because he is a complete turd🤬

Absolute bang on.

This clamour for season tickets being released by some on here is  exactly like last season ..why ??

After last season i would have thought most would have learnt a lesson and bide their time (and money) until things are a little clearer .

No panic ..

The vast majority of clubs, most of them with better management than Rovers, disagree, and have had them on sale for weeks or even months.

I think those clubs know more than Steve Waggott and Venkys and the proof will be in eventual numbers sold.

JH ..we know we have awful owners ..we really do .. but again this clamour for Season tickets when AGAIN no one even sure what they ll get for their Season Ticket is a lil daft.

We had the same argument last season JH ..you was pushing for Season tickets whilst others were saying a Season ticket for what ? And we all know how that turned out ..

Please dont think im specifically targeting you JH because im not ..just feel theres no rush until we know again just how its all going to work ?

Besides im damn sure anyone anyone who wants a Season ticket will get one even with a reduced capacity.

Was talking to a bloke the other week sat outside the Napier.

He was one of the 2500 and had been going every season since 63.

When I asked why he had bought a ST, he freely admitted that he had fully expected to be back in the ground by October.

He went on to say that he was not going to buy one this season due to Mowbray and Waggott.

I see the new advice for Blackburn is to not leave town and to only meet outdoors. Heading towards special measures again.

Waggott's ST plans will be shot to shit before the 2500 even hear what they were.

According to the FF minutes it looks like ST's will out next week and that ST holders from last year and year before will get a discount of some sort. Or some sort of deal at least. Free pie?

Whatever sort of deal it is, I would bet that it isn't a good one

Don't miss out on Swag's 2FAT mega deal! Cheesy chips with bacon dregs for JUST £5, or go 2FAT with 2 FOR A TENNER!*

*Food bought on match days subject to £1.50 administrative fee (per portion).

I think the deal will be along the lines of: For just a small increase in price, you can watch the same old shit, from the same seat.

It referred to loyalty so my guess would be “renew your 2019/20 seat by 30 June and get the early bird discount of last year’s full price”. After that a whacking price rise (again) so not so much rewarding loyalty as penalising anyone wanting to “wait and see” over Mowbray and/or transfer business.

For those 2500 who did renew they will get their promised discount (well they’d better bloody had) and £10 off the new shirt.

Personally I think they would be foolish to set an early bird price, a price rise and the threat of a ticking clock after this last 12 months on and off the field and the wider global issues but let’s see how close I am! Who knows, maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised after all Venkys are now experienced football club owners.

If you can put up with the tombola team selections, going nowhere football and indifference to winning and league position, this is the deal for you.....

Prices frozen at 2019/20 levels...25% increase to everyone else...massive saving to be mugged off for another year.

This will be offset by eventually flogging the training ground.

We are doing all we can.
