VBers Keeping The Faith With Takeover

VBers Keeping The Faith With Takeover

The ballots are over and you good folk have been voting on whether there's still a proposed takeover at Blackburn this season with sparky gone and the overall opinion is.....YES

The general consensus seems to be that you think there will be a takeover this coming season with 40% of the votes suggesting so.

Some are still pessimistic that this will happen though, with 32% of the voters saying a resounding NO.

The final 28% of you cannot see a takeover happening this season but still wish that the board would invest nonetheless.

Whatever the outcome, with all that has happened so far this offseason and surely a few more twists and turns still to come, the 2008/2009 Barclays Premier League season could be one of Rovers most critial both on AND off the field.

Don't forget to check the new poll, suggested by me (which reminds me, fellow VBers, get your suggestions for polls in to us!!!) which asks you....

'Given the 'easy' start that Rovers are facing in the upcoming season, where do you think Rovers will be come Halloween; 31st October 2008???'

I hope the takeover does happen, but I can't see it just yet?!?! Bom the poll title is too long, so it cuts some of, which is a shame but if you read the above you know what you are aiming for.

I can't see it happening soon but if we get the right man in, then who knows. I just hope the Walker trust does not put a unrealistic price on the clubs head.

It is quite out of order and wrong to criticise the Walker family in any way. No more of it please. Apologies to them. OK they are not passionate about BRFC as Jack was, but without them we would be in nowhere land today. They could just have sold up for the cash, but are keen to preserve the heritage and future of the club. It would be very interesting if Jack Walker were around today, to see how he would have responded to the likes of the Abramovichs and the Glazers etc. Obviously, we will never know.

Nut all, I long thought that but their recent actions have proved that they have now decided that they want their due inheritance and have stopped as much money leaving the coffers as possible. This is the main reason that Hughes jumped ship as he was refused cash in January. Jack was a legend and had a passion for the club but his "relatives" are now, in my opinion, only interested in maximising their profits from the clubs sale. You say they couldve sold up??? the price they are asking is prohibative, which, when you think how well we are run, is an unusual approach but they have obviously over valued the product, no doubt in an effort to get as much money as possible. The longer the trustees stay in charge now, the more and more we will fall behind. I genuinely fear for Rovers and them being left behind without a takeover happening. I think we have, over the last 4 years performed admirably in spite of them, not because of them!!!!

They are a sensible cautious board that we have at present. They wont overcommit which is frustrating but it also safe guards the future of the club.
