I've seen a few mutterings recently that a "spin-off" Blackburn Rovers Football Club is being formed, much like FC United of Manchester etc. With some Rovers fans becoming more and more disillusioned with events at Ewood Park following in the footsteps of disillusioned fans of Manchester United, for example, is planned??
Personally I've been less than impressed with Venky's since their arrival, we've stumbled and lurched from one disaster to another (on the face of it). The media image has been a goldmine to the newspaper but a shambolic mess for the fans, however, despite all of this there will only be one Blackburn Rovers Football Club for me. I applaud (and won't ridicule) those who feel so passionate about things that they feel strongly enough to back a potentially newly formed FC Rovers (or will it be FC Blackburn??), however, I ask have things really got to the point where it's felt this is an avenue to go down?? Things might not be good at Ewood but they've not gotten to proportions of that magnitude have they.
Venky's have around a month to really prove their worth to Rovers fans, with their actions (or non-actions) in the transfer window. The five or six-months that follow when the transfer window is closed and the football (with what is available for selection) takes centre stage will tell us virtually all we need to know about their plans and will make or break them and in particular Steve Kean. If the Rovers Manager can't enjoy a relatively successful first half of the season (realistically two to three-months) then if they continue to persevere with him then I'd be left under little illusion that they're possibly not the people that we want running Rovers.
Would I then consider turning my back in favour of this FC team?? Even then (again I'll not belittle anyone that does) I'd still have to answer no to this.
