Venky's explain themselves

Venky's explain themselves

Rovers owner Arunadha Desai has stepped out to explain yesterday's shock sacking of Big Sam.

The decisions seem to stem from the quality of football being produced and the way to take to the club forward.

Rather than me waffle on too much (as that happens too often anyway! Look I am doing it right now) I will take you straight to the source...

Desai told the Lancashire Telegraph: 'We want good football and Blackburn to be fourth or fifth in the league or even better.

'The fans should trust us because this is in the best interests of the club. Our thinking now is that it will be a British manager.

'But we are open if there is an outstanding candidate, someone who would be really, really good for the club.

"It is nothing against Sam but we have a different vision looking forward and we want the club to grow.

'It is not about the Bolton match. It has been a long time in our minds.

"We wanted good football, wanted the games to be interesting and of course wanted to win and to have good players.

"The fans should trust us and have belief in us.

The new head lady of Rovers even explained to fans it may take time to find a new man, maybe even months!

"Our thinking now is that it will be a British manager, but we are open if there is an outstanding candidate: someone who would be really, really good for the club.

"Right now Steve Kean will take over while we are looking for someone to take over on a permanent basis.

Fair enough view - but I hope they realise they are going to have to back it up with serious amounts of hard cash...?

They say they want us to have good players.. yet they offer Big Sam the chance to sign Kevin Boyd and Geovani?

Don't believe some of this at all. The reason it will take months to get a new manager is because that is after the Jan transfer window shuts. Yet they want us to finish 5th? She can't possibly mean this season, unless she is insane!

With how close it is then maybe we can? But it will take more than signing Kris Boyd and Geovanni!!!! And spending much more than £5 million!

It has to be Martin O'Neill or Martin Jol and soon otherwise they might as well have kept Sam in charge. Don't like the idea of waiting months either. We need a new striker and we'll never attract a good enough one without a decent manager.
