    Summer transfer window

    I think the last time we moved really early was for none other than the great Miles Anderson after coming on and playing 3 minutes for Aberdeen. What a 3 minutes that must have been, he must have won the game single handed stopped 2 certain goals with last gasp defending and then laid on the winner. Now those are the sort of players we want. Wait a minute, I have just woken up from having a very strange and weird dream.

    The biggest dick ever to swing on these pages or at this club just happened to be a Goodwillie.

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    Venky’s like others who have inherited wealth have a certain arrogance that they are right. Same with Walkers, who when you get down to it, their business acumen has been left wanting, take Flybe for example. In my opinion, we have Indian owners who are living in a world that is probably 50 years behind Europe and as a result can’t be seen to have made a stupid decision to buy the club because in their world they have made the decision and it cannot be seen as wrong. Problem is for us as fans we are now stuck between a rock and a hard place as they are looking at the money drain that is no doughtedly occurring. Initial problem was that Venkys where shafted by certain agents and didn’t see that for a considerable period of time but by the time they did the agent and the manager who the agent had put in did untold damage which was exasperated by the relationship between the owner and the managers wife. We thought or at least I did, this is pathetic. They should give the club back but that is not going to happen because (coming from someone who has done business in that part of the world for many years) it is not in their psychology as it would be seen as a failure which is not acceptable. In short, I believe, we are stuck with our current owners for the foreseeable future as in their world they cannot be seen to have failed. However, if they see an opportunity for the club to improve (possibility of promotion etc.) then they will back the manager of the day, however, there is always a however, it is whoever chooses the manager because they haven’t the know how, Our current manager has done a reasonable job for us as fans because we are in a far better place now than we where at this time last year or certainly 2 years ago. Problem we have, is this the farthest that the current manager can take us and if it is then who makes the decision to change. The chief exec in Blackburn is a mate of the manager and is not going to get rid of him easily. We have this issue, if we like it or not it is a fact, so in summary I can only think we get lucky and the owners will keep us going and back us to the hilt should circumstances arise but if they don’t, they see us as a money laundering outfit without going into FFP and keep us going.

    Don’t bet on that. Don’t think even Mercer would bet on that?

    The Second Class - Rovers Hall of Fame 2020

    I have just voted for other name. That name being Andy McEvoy. Against all the odds he ended up being second best scorer in the first division and the following year being joint top scorer with Jimmy Greaves. In my opinion, absolutely remarkable.

    Dack can do better than Burnley. Come to think of it I can do better than Burnley and I am nearly 70.

    Many years ago now, Nicko as he was called (Allan Nixon) had great contacts with the club and any news he got, particularly regarding transfer news, he would report at 11-00pm. We all would wait for the 11 o’clocker with anticipation. However Nixon lost his contacts and has since turned against the club but some, particularly Chaddy still take what he says as gospel. Now wait for Chaddy:

    Madon is quiet at the moment. Could we be due an 11 O’Clocker?

    I assume it comes from the song a day in the life from the sergeant Pepper album by the Beatles.
