After almost 8 years it is time for this web site to call it a day. All good things come to an end. It has been a turbulent 8 years. The worst and most distressing in Blackburn Rovers 133-year proud history. £100m in debt, two relegations, eight managers, including the awful Steven Kean. We have tried our best to make some sense of it, to very little avail.The architect of our downfall, Jerome Anderson, along with his fellow directors, who included ex Arsenal and currant pundit, Charlie Nicholas, has been exposed for the villain he is. Our inept owners, Venky's of India, have had their day in court with the rogue football agent. The outcome we do not know, not divulged, although some financial settlement with Venky's is reported to have taken place.However, we have gone from the heights of winning the Premiership, to the depths of English Football's third tier, Division One. Losing 50% of our fans along the way. To say our owners, the Rao family have been a disaster is to put it mildly.We have lost good people along the way, people who should never have been let go.
Allardyce, Williams, Finn, Goodman, Hunt, Shaw, Silk, Myers, Bowyer, Kinder, to mention but a few.
During the course of the past 8 years I have been banned by the Lancashire Telegraph, at the request of the Venky's. Have been subject to the threat of legal redress by Jerome Anderson / Kentaro SEM. All a result of unveiling the truth of how Rovers were being run. It is all in the public domain now and well documented.
There are Over 1,000 articles are on this web site, documenting Rovers demise, week by week, month by month, year by year. Browse through them, some stories and our owner’s mistakes are cringe worthy. They are still making them. As if the sacking's Sam Allardyce and Gary Bowyer were not bad enough, we now learn they promised Neil Warnock the manager’s job in May 2016. Only to have their 'heads turned by agent Mike Shearing, who offered them the cheaper option of Owen Coyle, he was appointed 3rd June 2016. Coyle was a poor manager and took us into the 3rd tier of English football for the first time in over 30 years. Their decision making really does Beggar Belief !
