Today it is the turn of the Daily Mail

Today it is the turn of the Daily Mail

Well if we are to believe recent press musings then Rovers really are up a back alley naked with our pants pulled down.

If it isn't one paper telling us that we owe money to a bank and that we are defaulting on payments (say hello Daily Mirror) it is today's offerings from the Daily Mail.

Apparently we are indeed financially on verge of collapse and to buy anybody we need to have a fire sale.

What's a fire sale I hear you say? Well for any of you that haven't watched Die Hard 4 let me hand you over to the Daily Mail to explain.

The Daily Mail is reporting from it's article 'Blackburn Rovers rocked as manager Kean is forced to hold fire sale' - 'Kean may be forced to sanction the £8million move (for Chris Samba), despite Samba signing a new five-year deal only last season.

Blackburn owners Venky's are bringing in cost-cutting measures to reduce their bank overdraft, as reported in Sportsmail yesterday, and the impact is already being felt by the under-pressure boss.

Midfielder Keith Andrews may also be off-loaded, with Portsmouth and Nottingham Forest keen on him, while Blackburn are desperate to find a buyer for El- Hadji Diouf, after his recent unauthorised absence.'

So a fire sale ladies and gentlemen is having to sell a player who the media are begging to join Arsenal or Spurs, a player who most fans would drive to his next club and a player the club are desperately trying to get shot of (for free) to anyone that will have him.

Brilliant, just breathtakingly brilliant.

Stopped buying papers years ago as nothing but fodder the majority of the time however where there is smoke there is generally fire, i don't think this is gonna be the last story we'l see in the next few weeks.

If these stories are inaccurate why does our club sue them?

I don't believe any of this, the only paper that will tell the truth to us is the Lancashire telegraph TBH, although would help if venkys came out and told everyone what is really happening

Not saying I believe any tabloid garbage however it worrys me how quite the Venkys r being. We cant get a read on the club due to constant smoke and mirrors. Just please come out and tell it how it is in an open interview.... possible bring along an accountant and def a PR man to put a positive outlook on the neg stuff that prob would come out

I've lost interest in what these morons are saying TBH. They're all so desperate for stories to fill their columns since there's hardly any transfers going on and we are the easiest target for these muppets. maybe we've just had a little trouble negotiating to buy new players and all these stories are completely false. The only thing that concerns me is how quiet Venky's are at the moment, in the past they've been quick to react to false rumours. I know we're the last on Sky's priority list for news but until they report something concrete I take it with a little sodium chloride from now on.

The media are merrily selling off our players as well. not even worth wasting a pinch of salt on them.
