    Barnsley v Rovers

    Mine seems to start off about that and it keeps on freezing and the more that happens, the further behind it seems to get.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Its buffering a lot and tends to end up about 3 minutes behind real time, because of it.

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    Not many clubs will be in a great position when the current awful situation comes to an end. I dread to think how our finances are going to look and although we can't blame Venky's for that bit, they have put us right on the very edge, with the complete mess they have created over the 9 years at the club.

    Swansea City home

    Let’s hope Preston continue their poor form, as that could be key to our chances.

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    The next home game is V Bristol City. They have a tough fixture next week, so we could go into that fixture, even closer. Preston will then be the next target, who on paper, have some winnable matches coming up. The outcome of those could decide our fate.

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    Hope we can make it and the best chance really would be if we don’t suffer any more injuries. A win against Derby next Sunday, would give us the boost and momentum again and we will have the advantage of know how PNE have got on. If they lose and we win, we could be sixth.

    Stoke City home

    Graham on after an hour will change this. Win it 2-0 after looking like a draw all night

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    I take nothing for granted, after our losses to the likes of Charlton and Luton at home. I do think we are capable of beating Derby and Cardiff away and would hope we can win one of the home games, against either West Brom or Leeds. We beat BCFC away, so why not at home too? If we can collect 12 points from those games, I am sure we will make the play offs.

    He did, at 2.00PM with his wife son and daughter in law at his side. I got the message from Helen, his daughter in law, shortly after he passed away. She had told me earlier in the week, he was near the end. he was a great guy Brian and I have a lot to thank him for, as I wouldn’t have been where I am in business today, without him. I spent many an hour with him at his office in Leyland, chatting about football and all sorts of other things. There is a tribute to him on the Telegraph site and it is quite a nice piece RIP Brian you are one of life’s special people.
  12. Kean did in fact resign as has now been pointed out. I would also perhaps suggest that is it very unlikely that he would have ever been sacked, as he was far to close to the people at the business end of the operation.
  13. I have a feeling that they wouldn't have a huge void in their lives, like a fan would, if the club suddenly went up in smoke.
  14. I suppose when you split a large debt between a few different parties, it doesn't seem as bad.
  15. Spot on. We now have HSH providing personnel. I wonder why?
  16. I think one of his first statements was to distance himself from anyone connected with the previous regime, which appears at best to be a bit of a diversion.
  17. The bigger issue with this really, is why on earth are the owners still apparently using the services of these people when they have distanced themselves from the likes of JA in the past? Plenty of fans have suggested that Venky's have learned their lessons and were just badly advised, which if true, begs the question, why would you keep going back to the same stable then? When you look back at the very suspicious activity surrounding the take over and occasions when certain respectable members of the media (Nick Harris being one) were asking, who is running Blackburn Rovers? you have to wonder what is still going on. The most dubious signing we ever made was one Myles Anderson, who the fans were accused of hounding out, yet has he ever made it anywhere? If these forces are still lurking somewhere and the only answer we are given by the current regime, is we can't comment on the past, then where does that leave us?

    Brereton goal!

    Its almost impossible to work this one out, but yet again, we have a player being signed and it seems to be for the benefits of other people and not for the club. Each time this happens, I think I hope this is the last one, but it never is. There are still dark forces at work and until we are rid of the owners, strange happenings like this, will carry on.

    A claret Legend and very good friend of mine Brian Pilkington, was diagnosed with this, quite some ago. He now requires care and lives in a care home as a result. I had a message from one of his family members earlier today, to say he is very ill right now. As you rightly say, it puts the silliness around local rivalries into perspective and shows how precious life is and how an illness like this, can strike anyone.

    Throughout my life as a Rovers fan, I have only come across a handful of former and current players, who I have thought loved the club as much as the fans. Tony is one of them and I will always consider him to be as big a player and club representative, as any that have brought success to the club. From seeing him play in the very first game I ever attended, to him breaking his leg whilst a Rover player, which ended his playing career, to seeing him win away at Derby, in his first game as caretaker boss. He is Mr Blackburn Rovers and I can't say anything more than I personally see him as second behind Uncle Jack, as the person, I see, as doing the most for the club in my lifetime. I wish him all the best with this awful illness and thank him from the bottom of my heart for some very special memories.
  21. I sincerely hope the questions asked are hard hitting and proper answers are given. Each and every one of these, so far have been a damp squib, as the crucial questions have been side stepped and important time taken up talking irrelevant nonsense.

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    The auditors will have looked at the expected income and the continuing liabilities and pointed out in no uncertain terms, that unless the owners funded the shortfall, the business was unsustainable, or in other words, we are bust. They have obviously agreed to carry on funding it, otherwise, we would now know the we were in administration. If you apply logic to this, knowing that they are never going to get their money back, should mean that they didn't agree to continue to fund is and allow the administration to happen. There is a reason somewhere though that they continue to do so, why though, is anyone's guess.

    Whoever can make sense of all this is a better man than me. Who in their right mind would do this?

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    They can rot in hell for me. We need bailing out to the tune of £20m per season, due to theirs and their stakeholders, total disregard for the club and Jack's legacy, when they bought it. All this nonsense about them being badly advised and now they have learned their lessons, is total garbage. They were complicit in what went on and they got their fingers burnt due to them being stitched up good and proper, by the person that sold them the dream of easy money. Pure greed for them to want to make a quick buck and now, as they can't bail out without a full and proper investigation, they are left propping it up. It is my view that they daren't sell, as some very deep and horrible goings on could be uncovered and they dare not risk that. Lurching from one crisis to another seems to have been the order of the day, since they arrived and it won't be getting better any time soon.
