  1. ...and Rovers manager if I had my way (suggested August 2010 maybe that's where Venkys got the idea from!) but some things aren't meant to be.
  2. You didn't really start to think that the day Dalglish showed up?
  3. Which they should have been doing 15 years ago. Showing up to greet Liz Windsor (sure the LT said they haven't been to Ewood since 2013 conveniently omitting this) shows what they think of the "peasants". I wouldn't just single Balaji out from the family. "Madame" should be held in equal attempt. As for "third wheel" I've always suspected they bully him but sometimes you need to make a stand! They should make Balaji's son the "face of the ownership". For obvious reason I'm not someone to judge people on who their families are. That said I'm certainly not going to compare him to
  4. Some of the anti-protesters are probably same who constantly convinced themselves that they supported a "family club". That's why they don't want dissent or protest or anything that interferes with their easily content mentality. Leeds fans would never forgive Venkys. You might say "well they have stronger feelings of top flight entitlement". Well Millwall fans don't and they wouldn't forgive them either. Sometimes you need fans with a bit of hostility. Sometimes of course it backfires and they get a bad rep but there's a balance. If you ask which stadiums are most intimidating in Championship
  5. He's a deluded egotist. When Barrow sack him he will probably still think of himself as a future Rovers manager. It's not like you have to be a member of Mensa but even people who like Dunn know he's lacking upstairs. Attacks Gary Bowyer on Twitter (the reasons being me, me, me) but has no issue with Kean. I left his name out on Evans thread other day after mentioning others not being criticised for milking injuries (though some certainly knew who I meant) to try and avoid argument. Well sod that. Just look at the first comment on LT article. All he's done is give these idiots d
  6. Well they made up for it over next 8 years didn't they? ?
  7. It does seem somewhat random. If I was in the USA would probably be looking at the MLS (still expanding) not the UK. Of course there's spending caps there but different to FUP. Look at Austin FC for example (who have Matthew McConaughey as a minority owner but he's also from Texas so not quite so random) they have sold out season tickets despite what's happening everywhere and it truly does suck if they can't even attend first game. I'm sure Brentford fans are pretty annoyed by their situation new stadium and all.
  8. Notice this hasn't had any mentions on here. Only saw it myself on another Rovers related forum. Apparently part 2 has comments covering more recent years like "pretty poor advice from some pretty poor individuals". I don't know if they are named guess that's Coar covering himself legally (after all he knows what threatening to sue people is like). Then again he gets confronted while some sign NDA's (not for free) and others screw over relatives who left them millions and get invited to his HOF induction.

  9. Shame there's probably no footage of this one! (couple years earlier) On 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 fixture, Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety o
  10. I'm sure some who protested don't go anymore because they can't forgive those idiots. Can't blame them as I'm one (though I suppose with me there's a lot of other grudges as well) Probably same people who break every lockdown guideline.
  11. There are fans who died hating these idiots. Wouldn't give Harris too much credence. Another FUP lover.
  12. Because they were neglectful stewards that's why. It didn't even become apparent that the Raos had no idea what relegation was until after the sale. It probably is. The name is Laurence Bassini who has stated interest in Rovers years before his failed attempt to buy Bolton Wanderers. He also claimed that John Williams would join their board of directors. ...and how much longer will they last if they haven't already expired. Do you really think they will speak out? I don't. Maybe they feel some responsibility not questioning Venkys more at the time as they would have found out h
  13. I haven't watched that. My comments were mainly based on Johnny Grunge who was also a close friend. I acknowledge the point though and Grunge did die a few months after Eddie. I certainly didn't dislike Benoit but didn't worship him like others did. I was much more into Eddie's match with Lesnar than the WM20 main event a month later. Not that the latter was a bad match because it wasn't. My favourite Benoit match would be the one against Austin on Smackdown with the consecutive suplexes. When they were part of the Radicalz (I didn't watch WCW besides the C5 show near the end) Eddie was t
  14. You can't possibly know that. While Benoit was certainly devastated by Eddie's death there were other wrestlers who died and were close to Benoit. Of course Eddie is the most high profile so that's why it gets mentioned more. Benoit had already had issues with his wife as far back as 2003 when she took out a restraining order. I don't doubt Benoit had serious health issues overlooked (heart certainly and severe depression) but I don't buy the excuse that his brain was equivalent to that of a dementia patient. It's pathetic that he stayed in the Wrestling Observer HOF (the only reason he got in
