With an ever-increasing workload my input on Vital Blackburn becomes less and less. It's a real shame I can't add more as I'd put in so much time and effort to build it up, however, I knew (when I moved on) that Mr Mikey an co would take Vital Blackburn onto another level, which they have.
"Another level" was also going to be reached with the Venky's takeover at Ewood Park!!
Now, we have are increasingly reaching another level but not the level that we were expecting!! I was never one of those that wanted them to come in and throw an absolute fortune at the club bringing in high profile (the early media reports on players we were trying to sign was cringe-worthy) signing after high profile signing, spending millions and millions because as recent history has shown us in football you don't often get something for nothing and this reckless spending would've come back to haunt us at some point in the future probably, as it has other clubs. Even though I didn't want this spending I wanted something positive and we've not really seen many positive steps since Venky's moved in really have we??
My previously mentioned thoughts about my lack of input have not prevented me from making the odd comment from time to time and (on occasion) stopped me sharing some thoughts with those now running the show for you VBers via email and I'd voiced to them that my frustrations were growing but wanted to bite my tongue for the sake of Vital Blackburn. However, I can do this no longer as each passing day seems to make the situation at the club worse!! What are Venky's real intentions, what was (are) their motivation behind taking over at Ewood and what are they looking to do for our future, which isn't looking very bright for me from where I sit at the moment. The actions so far (when you look at the bigger picture) haven't been that positive have they.
When they disposed of Big Sam it raised my eyebrow, but they would have a powerhouse waiting in the wings to take over. When they replaced him with Steve Kean it raised it even more. He's a nice enough dude, however, just about anyone can see that he isn't the right man to take us forward, he'll only take us backwards won't he?? Then again are Venky's doing this anyway?? I've been concerned that by putting in a manager such as Kean he'll be a soft touch who will be easily swayed into parting with players without kicking up too much fuss about the quality of player he is being allowed to replace them with (if he is). Even now the seemingly shambolic nature within the Venky's camp is splitting opinion even on him and the message finally (maybe) sinking in we need change, but even this is being handled in a poor way it would seem.
It's been a shambles pretty much since they took over, events of the past 24-48-hours are no less so and with the breaking news to the VBers it seems that a decision has been made to relieve Kean of his duties with this leaking out before the final decision was made. If something doesn't happen soon we're in for one hell of a tough season, as it is it's already looking like it'll be a tough one but there's still time for things to turn around but for this it's over to Venky's, however, their movements so far since coming in are doing little to encourage me that we'll see much improvement, though I hope to be proven wrong of course.
