  1. Would appreciate it if this could stay on topic please.
  2. To be fair, we knew it was a bit of a long shot. Making the case that Brockhall is an Asset Of Community Value in the sense that the act prescribes was a tough one. The fact of the matter is that it`s major use is as a training centre for a privately owned football club. They can go anywhere they want to do this. Ewood Park was a much easier target, as it is intrinsically linked to a historical base, in the heart of the Blackburn Community, and is used for many things other than 90 minutes football every ten days. But we felt that the current time was the best to go for this at Brockhall, not least as there seems to be nobody really with any gravitas in Ewood on a day to day basis, and as such it might go under the radar unnoticed. However to see it rejected is one thing-The rejection is from the council remember not from Venkys-But to see who Venkys hired to formulate the land owners response to the application is staggering-They certainly were not going to take any chances with for example getting Cheston to reply to it. It would appear to have drawn them out from their shell this, and despite covenants and the oppressive planning permissions likely to hinder any proposed sale I am am lot more worried about this now than I was before. We appear to have poked a stick where it hurts, just a little.
  3. The Rovers Trust application to have Brockhall listed as an ACV has been rejected. The club brought in some national heavyweight legal firm to squash the application. http://www.roverstrust.com/2017/11/12/bid-protect-brockhall-rejected/
  4. The questions raised by The Rovers Trust were, barring a couple, sent in from the membership. We asked the members for their questions in advance of the meeting and were forwarded to Rovers in line with the deadline. I asked Cheston who makes all the decisions on manager recruitment. If there was any hounding of Cheston by The Trust, as was at the request of our membership.
  5. Slightly OT John Williams questions

    John knew how vital Premier League football was to Rovers. If he felt continuing with a current manager meant relegation was likely he would pot him-See Paul Ince. Bit different with Pulis as his track record and experirnce buys him time, but Williams is a savvy administrator and I would back him to make the right call.
  6. ROVERS VS WIGAN

    At the supporters meeting at Ewood I asked Cheston the direct question on who hires and fires the manager to which he confirmed it was the Raos back in India.
  7. Mowbray stays as manager

    No offence to the guy, as he`s a nice , passionate bloke, and I have a lot of time for him, but he`s not exactly Mastermind material. He`s a tactical Pygmy to be blunt, in my opinion.
  8. Current Songs

    I haVe, and I know you will not surprised to hear this , "invented" a song for Little Harry Chapman. To the tune of Batman, TV show ( I guess). Ner ner ner ner ner ner ner ner CHAPMAN.
  9. Rochdale Away

    Im still singing it now, throats killing me.
  10. Rochdale Away

    What a mostly enjoyable afternoon that was. Home stewards instruction to ignore the seat numbers on your ticket and "Sit wherever you want" seemed a like a recipe for disaster, but we got away with that mostly. We appear to have found our level, bossing and beating up perennial lower league scufflers. Good times. Had our evening meal in The Baum, what an ace pub that is. Those on the later train from Rochdale back to East lancs via Todmorden Curve, inc Bob Fleming and Scotty were witness to the improved version of Richie Smallwood song-We`ll never be the same again.
  11. Rochdale Away

    Never thought I`d pay £22 quid for a game at Rochdale.
  12. Ace little night out for the last few standing Chicken Train Blues...
  13. Best Blackburn Pubs

    Navvi is good. But there is literally no decent pubs near the ground . I wish I 'd followed through with the idea that me, Wayne and Dan had about buying Ewood Arms as a Rovers Trust pub for match days.
  14. Best Blackburn Pubs

    Err no.
