    Wigan Administration

    By introducing more rigorous rules on Take-overs and Club Sales, including a Business Plan and a one year review. Clubs should have a minimum standard of governance, including Board Meetings and appointment of a Non-Exec Director from Fan Base. Agents fees; Spending in line with Income; Salary Cap proposals;rules on Key Assets. Our Football is just as important as Tate Modern,the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Opera House etc etc

    Wigan Administration

    Rick Parry(now of EFL) has just given a completely toothless response to fairly soft questioning from Jim White on TalkSport. Basically he says "the Clubs wont agree to tighten up the rules, because it will reduce the number of potential Investors" Put simply in the Wigan situation this is first of all a "Fraud Squad/ Interpol" investigation and secondly a Government issue -the DCMS has skirted round this too many times over 20 years.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    I did not vote. But if you said we could replace him with Gareth Ainsworth then 'yes'. The Club needs building up again , based on a Welcome Back to Ewood(including Venkys cos they are payrolling us) The Team has to keep introducing younger players(on less wages) and the Club itself has to start marketing itself as an Unfashionable Alternative Club, which just so happens to be "The Most Successful Town Club in the World". Lets get the seating sorted for 10,000 capacity from September onwards(during 2020) and then offer a £275 season ticket for the next Season(with 12 monthly payments of £25 pm) -ground only open to Season-Ticket Holders. Then start a Waiting List for Season Ticket Holders for remainder of 2020/21 season. The Club needs to think differently, even whilst they are focussed on this Season/ Virus tests/general 'fire-fighting' Responses to chair@roverstrust.co.uk , currently in quarantine with I-follow in Sofia. Recent Newsletter on www.roverstrust.co.uk got over 150 responses. Thanks.

    Cardiff away

    And no Joe Rothwell, plus with Holtby away from home we are just not competitive. Agree with Joe H. that it was the 5 home grown players plus Armstrong that provided the dynamism. The Youth Team are so good that they need to be accelerated. If they are still in training I would be blooding some of them before the end of the Season.
  5. And I thought it was the way the Manager set up Midfield. Rothwell = defeat usually away from home. Bradley Johnson should have started and we needed to plan to get the midfield area by the scruff of the neck. Morsey was poor but we never got momentum going. Very disappointing.
  6. With the scarcity of finances and the re-opening of the Season in doubt(for spectators) we have to get rid of everyone who's contract is running out;Exception is Stuart Downing; Mulgrew is on 99 appearances for some time now(so we will not see him again); Bell should have not got an automatic extension -get Wharton at left back and strengthen the defensive aspects. Youth Team on 2k per week is better than chasing 'mercenaries' on £10k+ per week. And we have to start breeding some Centre-Forwards -unless we convert one of our many centre halves a la Fred Pickering. By doing this we get ahead of the curve.
  7. I-Follow are at fault. Said they could deal with 10k Rovers fans plus all other Clubs!!
  8. Anyone camped on the hill yet? Or is the vegetation too high....
  9. That Rovers win at Man Utd that Kean lived off for 2 more years.

    Football League Suspended

    Depends on definition of 'normal'. If PL and EFL have any sense of strategic management they will now be looking at the dates of the Qatar World Cup(mid November 2022 to December 19th 2022) and trying to make sense of what the Seasons either side of that should be. Say the first normal match of next season is no earlier than September/October 2020 or later, how can we get 2 seasons in before the World Cup(plus Euro2021). Basically, it means the next 4 Seasons will look quite different than any we have ever experienced. AND the only reason we have professional footballers is to play competitive matches watched by passionately invested Supporters!
  11. Hi Pete....not got your email as yet and keen to read any comments. Can you forward it to growthclusters@hotmail.com please(one of my many email addresses). Thanks.

    FFP Trouble

    Its been quite a 10 years hasn't it? Only for one hour in the Championship play-off positions!! Agree 100% with Mashed Potatoes re FFP vs selling the Ground. Thst's why we renewed the ACV cos its a very slippery slope. The Owners have another option...buy the naming rights for the Ground for £5mn.....we would all still call it Ewood Park and hold our noses. I would take a transfer embargo rather than meddling with the assets of the Club.

    This made me smile ..

    MOST SUCCESSFUL TOWN CLUB IN THE WORLD! Should be all over the Ground. Recently we had figures for Clubs supplying England players.....we were 9th and very close to 6th.
  14. Thanks Herbie and a better New Year to all the Rovers Family. Has there ever been such a monthly change of fortunes. We need February to be a good month. Meanwhile our DRAFT Marketing prospectus still welcomes any comments,support, alternative ideas to make it a fully engaged document.. It will be handed to the Club at the end of the Month. It is not a short-term document and really asks questions like "Okay, we do not use the Lower Darwen End for Away Supporters, but what do we use it for?" and tries to answer that. Anyone at Hudders will see what they used the Away End(or half of it) for. You can email me at chair@roverstrust.co.uk and I will reply to all emails I get.
