Fan-Led Review of Football Ownership


Recommended Posts

Thanks John. It is worth mentioning that Tracey Crouch was extremely quick to respond to us (twice in fact) in what must have been a very busy week for her. So politics aside she deserves credit for that.

We now have that important connection into the Review.

That is a first class resume of what has happened to us and also it embodies what the Rovers means to the fans, the community and the well being of the town. It is also impressive of the response from Tracy Crouch.
I wonder what Kate Hollern’s response to this is? Does she care? Let’s hear from her. Over to you Kate. 
I have already written to Tracy Crouch to ask her to get a response from Kate Hollern.

is Kate Hollern interested in Blackburn Rovers at all? Is she even interested in football or Rovers fan? maybe @jim mk2might know?

Doesn't matter if she's actually interested or not. She's the local MP and what's of interest to a significant number of her constituents should be of interest to her.

Of course it matters if she is interested in Rovers or football. Her views on it matters to us but she will get re-elected for Blackburn area regards of her stance on it.

On the last but one election night, when a well known poster stood, basically on a Venky's Out mandate, I heard Kate muttering the words "badly advised"....That was enough for me!

MPs are not elected because e of their interest or otherwise in football but they should take up local issues. And we are one.

Well done again for your efforts John. Trying to contact these owners is futile in my view. Surely Pasha is the conduit we should be targeting. Does anybody know where he lives?

See my post was deleted, however I’ll re-post the salient bit. Our fanbase is well spread across a fair few constituencies these days, so it isn’t just Hollern that needs engaging.

Totally agree Mattyblue. And I'm reliably informed that it was the MPs of the peripheral constituencies that have provided the most support to the Trust in the past. We will engage with all of them.

She also failed to follow through on any of her promises or assurances made on and around that night and blocked me on Twitter!

Hopefully her team will get crushed both today but especially on Friday.

A Contributor asked for a Pasha address....we sent c/o Ewood park -but we have to flush him out!

The Trust got a pretty quick and very, very positive response from Tracey.

I am in transit at the moment...will get one of my colleagues to post it very soon.

Waiting for 6pm announcement on Covid Release to sort out yet another revised date for Trust AGM

Any idea why she used some words?

would three of those MP's be Former Hyndburn MP Graham Jones, Rossendale and Darwen MP Jake Berry and Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron?

Not very good response from Blackburn MP is it?

Yes. Graham was particularly helpful but of course isn't an MP any longer.

No He isn't. Sara Britcliffe beat him and so far she has done a good job for her constituents for her. 

But there is no reason why Graham Jones still couldn't be helping the Trust with his political experience and knowledge he has gained.

I contacted Nigel Evans a few months ago regarding Brockhall. I received no response at all.

No need to big up MPs just because they are Tories, nor belittle MPs just because they are Labour. It's obvious what you are doing, but that belongs on the other side of this message board, and the above just proves that MPs from any party can be as careful or careless as each other.

When listening to anything any politician has to say, always better to abide by the motto "How do you know when a politician is lying?

"Their lips are moving".

Good letter this time from the Trust, shame they were so conspicuous by their absence in taking a Public stance on the proposed sale of Brockhall considering how keen they are meant to be to secure and preserve the assets of the Club.

What was that about politicians again?

Agreed Meesh. We miss Graham Jones....I will be inviting him to Trust AGM when we can fix a date. Tim Farron has been very pro-active as well and I have been in contact with Straw family. But the luckiest man in Politics(Nigel Evans) and Corbyn's PPA(Kate Hollern) have been silent and uninterested.

The Trust released this statement within 24 hours of the news being leaked, seeking answers from the club.

The tone was one of push back.

Added to which, the Trust immediately offered its aid to the Brockhall residents too.

Talked AND walked.
