  1. Its an interesting podcast, but not anything I've not reported before 11th August 2011 i wrote this : https://roversrevisited.blogspot.com/2011/08/puppet-or-puppeteer.html?m=1#comments 5 years later after further investigation,i then released further information and this was the result https://www.sportskeeda.com/football/misery-at-blackburn-rovers-leaked-documents-reveal-harrowing-details-of-the-indian-rule-at-riverside The truth is,if it had not been for the supporters,we probably wouldnt have a club now. We stood up against the crook

  2. If he broke the rules when you had stood at a lectern telling telling 66 million people what to do, would you not kick him out your team? Particularly when every other person in a significant office position had also lost their job for such breaches. Makes no sense, like i said, i don't get it. Unless.......????........he committed the cardinal sin.......and offended Boris's girlfriend. In which case, the PM's romantic partner is deemed to be more important than the citizens he's assigned to protect. Worrying thoughts Chaddy. But hey, maybe Carrie is the new bra

  3. “Naive” and “Badly advised”... No doubt both of these things are true, but I’d say it’s also pretty indisputable they have also displayed massive amounts of arrogance and incompetence. Ignoring that and blaming everything on Jerome Anderson and absolving Venky’s is ridiculous. Apparently he was persona non grata when Coyle was appointed... although join the dots with the agents of all their managerial appointments since Bowyer and it’s apparent that the “lessons have been learned” line isn’t true. Like Glen and Philip have touched on, there’s nothing much new there for us, and p

  4. It's bizarre and a really lazy assumption that ill informed people make. So the same supporters who applauded them onto the pitch suddenly became racists? It was the same with Paul Ince. Suddenly the club was racist when he was sacked but only months before the very same club appointed him. Sacking Ince and disliking Venkys was/is nothing to do with race. One was an awful manager and the others are awful owners.

  5. Before we all drown in our tears for the Raos, we must remember that even after their sincere prayers in the Wolverhampton temple helped us stay up by the skin of our teeth, they actually left Kean in post-think on that for a while- and then, allowed the team to be significantly weakened the following(relegation) season. And that's before any mention of Salgado's contract, Emerton's sudden departure, Paul Agnew etc... I always kept this back. No substitute for a Saturday game, but have a listen...Sorry..luddite barrier sorted now Devil_Desai_mix3_(5).mp3

  6. I can imagine for an American something like the Madejski would be very familiar. For me, one of the best things about British football, and it still remains true by and large, is that the clubs are so ingrained within the towns and cities they represent. Even though the clubs have grown into global brands, stadiums like Anfield, Goodison Park and even Spurs' new place still sit within the suburbs, with all the pubs and other landmarks that have served the locals for decades. For me, Ewood Park rising out of the rows of terrace houses and narrow backstreets around Ewood is as synonymous w

  7. The power of brain washing, sadly. Nigel already has his excuse narrative lined up, it will be Boris's fault for not doing a simple trade deal or whatever. Of course he's lost his radio slot after his mail slipped and he described blm as the taliban, so bit harder now for him to disseminate his nonsense. But people will filter first January through their bias. It will be the eu's fault for punishing us, of it will be Boris's daily for making a mess. Or because we're such a big economy (think membership of the single market has helped in that regard, we went cap in hand to the imf in the early

  8. This. Glen and the team were superb in the way they handled it and took a huge amount of unfounded undeserved flak from other supporters.

  9. Willful negligence and arrogant we can do it better ourselves have played a big part. Alongside staying complicit with proven incompetence just because they liked them. Very hard to have total sympathy. If you really are great business people you don't smash something to pieces that is already working. If it ends up that way through a series of events partly beyond your control you very quickly get on top of it and revert back to what was working before. Or cut your losses of course. What you don't is bury your heads in the sand and leave it to chance just hoping - and praying - that

  10. Sheff Wed now have a better manager than us. This means that by next season, Pulis and Warnock will be knockimg on the door next season + the relegated teams + the other 3/4 that always have a shout.... Keeping mowbray just consigns us to years in this league. You said it yourself first, he will make the defence a priority...same as warnock has done. Mowbray had years and hasn't even give it any thought.

  12. It was a Vipers nest of self interest and pure greed.We had owners who were totally clueless and wholly reliant on others.Certain individuals took full advantage of the situation and the Foxes got right into the Chicken coop so to speak.They knew what they were doing and were cold and calculating..reading Glenn Mullans blog on the Singh/Shaw/Keane tenure is quite frankly mindblowing.Chancers,nothing more,nothing less. How the feck was the Club allowed to decend into such a state of affairs after years of careful stewardship?...rest assured, I fear we are not out of the Woods yet.

  14. Nick Harris was out of order in the ambiguity he allowed in that comment. The fans en mass have been very clear in admirably not being racist. There had been some very nasty extremist politically motivated elements involved when other potential Asian/Middle Eastern buyers had emerged much earlier. I don't believe those people had any particular affiliation with Rovers and definitely none with any of the fans' organisations. I have heard rumours although seen no evidence to support them that Anderson had engaged with the far right himself when working to clear other potential suitors

  15. The football was a side show, the trip was brilliant, most Rovers fans stayed in a hotel with a strip club on the top floor, I never saw the Mrs for 3 days....... 2 of our party missed the flight home, got stopped from boarding because the plane was full, took them 2 days to get home. I could go on. Great times, they can't take away our memories.

  16. "The whole situation was a recipe for disaster, as media coverage of the situation turned ugly and often crossed over into the boundaries of racism" Bullshit insinuation! The fans anger was at the total mismanagement of the Club and to suggest otherwise is unfounded shyte stirring.

  19. Fuck me, how shit's Saturday without any sport to occupy us other than racing and women's rugby?! We then have to resort to arguing about Sheffield bloody Wednesday, their squad and the merits of Tony Pulis. Sack off these pointless International breaks and roll on the day when we can attend footie and Ewood in person. #boredfeckingshitless

  22. They had some sort of legal challenge I believe from Intu after they received planning permission, not entirely sure what became of it but as far as I know they're good to proceed now. I've only ever been to Kenilworth Road once - that FA Cup fixture where Samba made his debut - my overriding memory of the day is the abuse Luton keeper Marlon Beresford got from us for his claret and blue past. As someone too young to remember the olden days pre-Taylor Report and all that, I still love the likes of Kenilworth Road and Griffin Park. Give me (safe!) tightly hemmed in, cramped old school

  26. I don't get it. No. 10 has a back door (or 5) surely? To make him walk out the front with his box in hand is just to demean him right. Cummings strikes me as a vindictive person, so is he not going to be out for revenge? Could he spill the beans? Or do these guys have legal agreements and NDA's preventing that? I wanna hear the dirt. Either way, like someone's already said, I didn't think Boris had the balls for a play like this. Things must have gone badly wrong. To stand by him through Barnard Castle and then end up here is both mystifying and intriguing.

  27. Dear Santa, To make this even more the best week in a long time, please can you also get rid of Brexit, Johnson, Gove, Patel, Raab and the whole Cabinet, plus Rees-Mogg, Baker, Jenkins, oh and while l'm at it, the Daily Mail, the Daily Express, the Daily Telegraph, - well, in short - the whole lot of them. Please can we also have proportional representation and a decent constitution. Thank you. We've been ever so good.

When they fired Big Sam the alarm bells started ringing loud and long. In the words of Homer Simpson when he puts his credit details into the machine - " Is that a good flashing red light ? ~

She made it cool for a generation of young girls to aspire to fake tits, potty mouths and the barbie lifestyle, thrown in a celeb BF or two if you can find them.

  33. I don't really know too much about how NDC's work. I still harbour some vain hope that somebody who was on the inside will one day tell us the truth but perhaps I'm being naive. Above all that though and as part of their redemption it would be good for Venkys themselves to come out and admit their gross failings and also naming all the duplicitous characters they employed and the parts they played, warts and all. Honesty should still be the best policy but perhaps that ship has sailed.

  34. There was a ? over the original source of some of the funds to buy Rovers. Channel 4 got to the bottom of this but couldn't get it past their legal department for a Despatches programme. I am in no doubt that all the funds injected since the acquisition have come from Venky's or been caused to come from Venky's in the case of the small State Bank of India overdraft. The Formica deal was: He was transferred from a little club in Argentina to Newell Old Boys who sold him to Red Star Belgrade (aka the Serbian mafia club) who then sold him to Kentaro to loan to Rovers.

  39. You should watch the Dark Side of the Ring episode on Benoit, as well as the Lapsed Fan podcasts on the subject. It will give you a much better understanding of what Eddie's death truly did to Benoit. The psychological impact was far beyond any other deaths he had experienced.

  40. It's another Johnson failure he pledged that by the end of June all test results would be returned within 24 hours. In fact last month the number of test results received within 24 hours wasn't the 100% that Johnson pledged months ago instead it was 15.1%. It's just another in a long line of monumental failures by this government

I managed to get 4.25 weeks per year redundancy pay, took a month off and walked straight onto another job. Now only working 30 hours a week and enjoy the new job much more than the old one.

  46. Was it not Craig Skinner who crossed for Speedie? That goal epitomised everything you said about Speedie in another post. He was in his own half, involved in the early build up, yet was in their 6 yard box to score with the header. Incidentally, I thought Skinner looked the more likely prospect when he and Wilcox came into the team around the same time. Shows what I know
