  1. Local rival and their situation is of course relevant to us as we have similar financial problems - strange post...
  2. Wow, massive losses/debt, that's why I was asking the other day how we fair comparatively. Link below shows biggest one year losses in English football @sportingintel: Bolton join .... errm ... an elite band. http://t.co/ayyK0r8Hek
  3. They are missing a few key players - plus are as average as us so thinking we won't lose...
  4. Exchanged a few PMs with Kelvin over the years - a thoroughly nice man who cared deeply about Rovers. Very sad news. RIP
  5. Along with that, the Germany incident with a Sky Sports reporter (drunk again). The pi**ed up video when he claimed top 10 finish and a trophy. These are just the stories we know about too. He is a first rate chancer who is taking the mick remaining in his role.
  6. With Kean and Hendry regarded as big drinkers and in poor shape themselves, hardly a good example to be set by management -- feel sorry for Eric Black who is one of the more normal members of staff we have behind the scenes.

  8. Sorry to hear this news - RIP.
  9. Could be that he might not be feeling well at the moment but I thought he did not look that healthy.
  10. Think Kean fits in perfectly with the way Venkys currently want to run the club. Would be strange having a proper manager in charge under these owners, cant really imagine it.
  11. So yet more strange going ons under the marvelous Venkys ownership. And yet another staff member who leaves the club is gagged from saying anything.
  12. Rochina looked very good especially considering it was his debut - looked class and can control/pass the ball well. Pity that description matches none of his team mates.
  13. The surprise element could work, we need something to freshen us up.
  14. Grant admitted Benni McCarthy had ‘one or two kilos’ to lose but said he would support the forward. ‘We’ll help him with this and what I see in training is good — I’m sure he’ll be OK.
  15. I was slightly concerned when Benni left, as despite his weight problems, he was the best proven finisher at the club (also the fact we were flirting with relegation at the time). However, looks like things have worked out well and we have not suffered in the slightest (plus receiving some money in the process). I can completely understand Sam's stance now and also think he conducted himself well when Benni went on strike.
  16. West Ham are ready to take severe sanctions against fat boy Benni McCarthy. Benni McCarthy facing hefty West Ham fine if he fails to lose weight
  17. Another striker who joined West Ham in January, Benni McCarthy, and another who appears to have weight issues McCarthy was being paid £45,000 a week at Ewood Park, their highest-earner, and is on comparable wages now, including a payment of £250,000 for his image rights.
  18. Sam on Benni from here While Allardyce may have been less than impressed by the way the veteran South African missed training in an effort to force through the move, the Rovers boss feels he can still do a job in the Premier League. "He is a hugely talented player that can play well and play his best football in the final third," said Allardyce. "However, Benni is not getting any younger so when you're not getting any younger the legs are not quite as good, but the talent is still there. If you can get other players around him to do the work load then he will use the talents to get you chances and score you goals. I think based, on his career, he will be really, really good when he comes to the club because he generally is the best he is when he first goes to any new club.
  19. Comment from that story I'm not surprised Karren Brady proposed changing the name of her new club to West Ham Olympic last week. She christened Blackburn 'Welshpool Rovers' when I left Birmingham for there in 2005, inferring that I'd only moved because I wanted to be alongside countrymen like Mark Hughes and Mark Bowen. Wrong. Maybe I just wanted to work for a chief executive who didn't have daft ideas
  20. Comments from Sam Insisting McCarthy’s decision had more to do with a wages hike of £15,000 to £50,000-a-week rather than playing time Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce said: ‘If you’re at a club you have to play for your place, World Cup or not. you’re not consistent enough then you don’t get in the side. ‘It’s a player’s responsibility to give his best performance every week. The reason he is going will be the size of the contract and the money.
