Default The fall of Blackburn

I thought Leeds had it bad but the state of Blackburn must be heartbreaking for their fans

Anyone over here working with Indians will relate to the last paragraph lol

"The club has been run on a reactionary basis. People within Ewood Park can't agree and those with the final say are based in India and take about two weeks to make a decision."

Even though I'm certainly no Blackburn fan, I must say it's shocking the way it appears the club is managed.

If they go down again, for the second year in succession, then the investment the Venkys made must now be worth a pittance.

I feel for the fans.

Being a Blackburn fan has been a surreal experience over the last 2 years.

Why the Venkys did so many of the things that they did defies any logic whatsoever, none more so than sticking with Steve Kean for so long.

Firing BFS was a 50-50, when it happened I remember Newcastle fans being more excited about it than Rovers fans, many of whom were glad with what BFS was doing, achieving 7th place with the squad he had was something of a miracle.

It is what happened after he was fired that has led Blackburn Rovers to the Championship and possibly even lower.

I assume you are asking why they have ruined it? I think largely because they know nothing about football and don't actually care. Apparently they were not even aware that clubs could be relegated. The FA should never have approved the purchase.

Maybe they thought that they could sell their Chicken pies at the Ground

I believe Blackburn were 13th when they sacked big Sam and it's been a downward spiral since

They probably didn't. The job of the FA is to regulate the game - not who owns the club. Quite right so.

Perhaps they need to take lessons from the outfit which bought Jaguar--they seem to be doing a good job.

Due diligence. Is it in the FA's remit?
