You are probably right - I don't think a total boycott would be possible at any club, although Blackpool got pretty close.

Having said that, we have to try. We need to take some action whether it is protest and/or boycott. Simply accepting the situation and doing nothing because 'it'll never work' is not an option.

Venky's will leave at some point, we need to speed the process up by any means necessary.

Will they though ?

I'm not so sure i think their tenure at Rovers could well out see a lot of fans. Reason it went pear shaped with the Walkers is the younger ones weren't interested. 

If Barry's lad and other younger members of the Rao clan have an interest, even if it's only as a toy, then it could go on a long time.  Their empire is growing and the spare money is there to chuck around annually. These lot view it as an ongoing project/game/experiment.

Jacks empire was ripe for breaking up and reigning in to a manageable, profitable size. His kids and grandkids just seemed to view it as the old mans expensive obsession but the old man was gone.

The Rao elders are only 40's/50's this could go on a long time yet.

not really as i didn't think it was cheap renewing last season when i knew we wouldn't be able to attend!

Yet you say your reason to renew is to support the 11 on the pitch. Did they know you had switched on ?

Absolutely NOT convinced about that otherwise why are there no offers from anyone interested in investing? Waiting till administration doesn’t appear to be an attractive option

Should Rovers enter an insolvency situation, I know of at least two North West parties (from my line of work) who would be interested - please don't ask for names for obvious reasons.

I'd bet one of those is the same I've heard too.

Boycotts are never going to happen. Some folk wouldn’t even turn their back on a match for 10 seconds if it were seen as some kind of organised protest. “You won’t tell me what to do” and “you’re not a real fan”. We will have fans queuing up for the new Rovers shirt. We can’t even boycott that.

And while that is the case, there will be no pressure placed on Mowbray or Waggott from the terraces. Certainly not in any pre-emptive way.

The ONLY thing that will create a pseudo-united fan-base against Mowbray will be a sustained run of defeats with us rooted in the bottom three, and organic chants from the dwindling numbers at the games.

Sadly, if Mowbray simply wants a pay off he is going nowhere until the end of next season at the earliest. No amount of booing or chanting or STs thrown on the pitch with have any affect without a compensation deal.

Utterly stuck with people who only have their own best interests at heart.

Go, don’t go, it doesn’t matter. While Tombola Tony continues to pick an XI to “do a job” all of the support in the world makes no difference, and any boycott would just be spun as a lack of commitment from fans.

They hold all of the cards. I imagine they must laugh about it, and at us, behind closed doors. Imagine being so incompetent with no clue how to fix things, and being given an annual green light to carry on anyway.

I’m fully expecting that Waggott’s mission right now will be tying Mowbray down to a new contract as a priority. The fact there has been no talk about this being his last season speaks volumes.

Called it ages ago and i still reckon Mowbray will have some kind of extension. It'll either kick in this season or after a small good run that happens occasionally it'll 'leak' out.

Silence on this speaks volumes and maybe it's the real reason he appeared to be so disinterested and sulking. Something has clearly gone on last season and probably it was him seeking the assurances of a longer stay for his journey.

The laughing and the new contract are as nailed on as a Mowbray 10-game winless run.

Wonder how sales are going,the thought of us selling the least out of Burnley,Preston,Bolton and Blackpool...when was the last time that happened?

😟

Probably never given our lowest numbers were in the early 80s at a time when the above were often down in the 4th division.

I think mowbray will walk he was rattled last season with no fans if this season is a shambles which is looking likely he will walk, then no doubt it will hsh recommendation and in walks pulis and the cycle continues. Not so sure SW and TM are as close as people think heard various different accounts of a falling out

Football stadiums can operate at full capacity from 19th July as Prime Minister has announced in his press conference

Unless the club hierarchy have alienated large swathes of your fans and closed half the stands

With the people still involved with the club running it into the ground i'm guessing you could fit everybody attending into 1 stand for most of the games next season,it's going to be a hell of a long time before full capacity is needed at Rovers again.

I’d love for us to be creative with the community stuff; the recent Eid community thing was a great idea.

Would be good to see the club trying to bring the differing cultures together somehow

It would be a good idea to do something for the culture that already supports the club. All they have managed to do so far is devide that support.
