Surprised virtually nothing is being spoken about their appearance on this message board.

Am I correct in saying they rolled up then rolled off without a mutter of protest ?

Not a lot of people seemed to notice them being there it was so unexpected. I only became aware of it after an hour.

And in all honesty I think people were trying to support the team rather than create a negative atmosphere.

Plus the fans collective will has been broken

They didn't 'roll up then rolled off.

They sneaked in and sneaked out. The vast majority didn't know they were there.

COWARDS

They've shown their lack of 80ll0cks from day one and the JW sacking.

They make the choices and they don't even have the courage to stand by them in front of the fans.

Perhaps if any ITK people know where they are staying, they could print off a few copies of Preston Blue/Perth Blue's Keano Bulls...-o-matic toilet roll or the scum block ad and leave them lying around for them to find. Just so they'd really get a feel for how they are (not) appreciated in these parts.

Preferably of the 'used' variety

My first Rovers game was at Ewood Park on Saturday 7th September 1963, Rovers 7 v Spurs 2 (McEvoy 4,Douglas 1,England 1,Pickering 1)

Rovers team: Else,Bray,Newton,Clayton,England,McGrath,Ferguson,McEvoy,Pickering,Douglas,Harrison. Attendance: 20,949

Only 3 in the Rovers team cost a transfer fee: Else £20k, Harrison £20k and Ferguson £2k

I'm shocked people are saying that they sneaked in and it was low key etc. They were surrounded by stewards and Bilaji's earing could be seen glimmering all the way from the Blackburn End. Venkatesh was there for most of the match but Bilaji disappeared for a while when we went 2 nil down.

Did they buy Neville's house or not?

Balaji cannot have an interest in football if he left at 2-2 with the game hanging in the balance, particularly with "his" team having a one man advantage. Not sure what the point was in them showing up to be honest - maybe they were discussing Kean's extended contract and a pay rise for doing such a wonderful job.

The more pertinent question isn't "why did no-one scream 'Venkys Out'?" (as though it would achieve anything) but "why were they here at all?"

Did they buy Neville's house or not?

They probably rented it for six months and turned it into a pig sty. They then decided it was too expensive and left. They now stop in a 4 man tent just behind Darwen Tower whenever they decide to take in 10 minutes or so of a football match involving the club they 'bought'.

I, and those round me in the BBE, had no idea they were there last night. Possibly too focused on the car crash of a performance on the pitch.

So what did they learn from last nights visit and the health of their "baby"? Nothing that any fan (apart from braddock / agnew) couldn't have told them months ago.

Oh, look, there I go again, assuming they actually give a damn. They never have and never will.

Thought I'd mention that in the Jack Walker Lower, a few lads unfurled a banner when we went 2-0 down saying something like Please Leave the Club - Venky's Please Sell or words to that effect. Within moments they were surrounded by stewards and the banner was removed. Then the lads spent the next twenty minutes being harassed by stewards then several police. The heavy handedness with which Ewood is being policed these days is extraordinary. You would have thought that someone had set fire to the stadium. Thing is the heavy handedness is more likely to incite violence and angry scenes.

Did you not read the reasons for not having banners at the game, booth? Somebody could slip over. Hope the police arrested the lads, their thoughtless actions could have ended in tragedy!

B0llox. The steards were simply trying to stop them getting to Kean....which is fair enough.

There was a bunch of muppets, about 15 of them in yellow & black (Was Mullen one of them?) - they had a banner at 2-0. At 2-2 they sat down and behaved. But then as it went 3-2 the banners came out again and they were trying to get attention off the sky cameras.

Not there to support the team, simply to get on tv and try to create a bad atmosphere. They protested and we lost....but no doubt they will continue to claim we only win when they protest! :unsure:

As for Venkys hiding - they were sat outside in the Jack walker box....how is that hiding? I knew they were attending the game at around 2pm in the afternoon, hardly sneaked in and out.

Why are they muppets for tryong to highlight what is the best way forward for the club.

The real muppets arethose fans that are in denial.
