Rovers Supporters to hold interim talks with Club

A group of Blackburn Rovers Supporters will hold interim talks with the Club on Wednesday regarding growing concerns amongst the Blackburn Rovers faithful.

Amongst those in attendance will be the Protests organisors, Supporters who attended the recent open meeting and fans who have genuine concerns regarding the current situation at Blackburn Rovers.

The aim of this meeting is to try and open a communication channel to bring the Club and Supporters closer. Further meetings are expected to be arranged on the back of this one, As both Club and Supporters look to bring an end to the growing unrest.

The last three Premiership home games has witnessed organised protest due to the Managers poor Managerial record since taking the reigns at Ewood Park following the shock sacking of Sam Allardyce

This weekend Blackburn Rovers entertain a misfiring Chelsea at Ewood Park, and Prior to the game a full scale 45 Minute Sit-in Protest will take place aimed at Venkys Mis-Management of the club during their first 12 months as owners of the club. This protest is scheduled to start at 14.15 and will run all the way upto Kick-Off, in addition this will be held in all area's of the ground.

There is a big rumour that the club owners maybe attending the match, however on safety grounds the Club and Police have requested that no Banners will be allowed in the ground until the match ends.

At the end of the Match supporters will be allowed to collect banners from the Ewood security office which they have left prior to the game. All supporters will be allowed re-entry to the ground via the Ronnie Clayton Stand where a further 45 Minute sit in protest will occur aimed at both Venkys and Steve Kean.

This has been agreed amongst all parties after a week of talks.

Seems a bit weird that they won't let protesters take flags in with them?! How does that affect safety? Other than that... stellar work as always mate. How much sleep did you manage last night?!

Agreed with all parties except those who disagree with the protests I suppose you meant to say Mikey? Can you imagine the negative effect on the players warming up in front of fans protesting about the manager fpr whom they are about to give their all? Can you imagine the effect on the travelling support who will, correctly, label our supporters as shambolic? If anyone has any sense of pride in the Club and considers themselves to be a true fan they should walk in 10 minutes before kick-off and not give the minority the exposure and publicity they seek.

Firstly Kevin, Mikey did not write the article, Secondly regarding all parties, it is ALL parties who was in the meeting, if you are against protest you are more than welcome to contact the club and ask to attend these meetings regarding protests. The pre-match protest is not aimed at Steve Kean, and whilst conditions are put in place of what can or can't be done, it takes away the chance to keep the players out of the picture. I respect your opinion of keeping your head in the sand, but I see true fans at every protest, because they go that extra mile to try and ensure we have a well run club to support .At what point will Supporters who continue to remain blinkered at the mess we are in, wake up? Will this be when we are relegated or when we are in administration?

Glen you know most of us genuinely appreciate the work you and others are putting in. I can only really hope that this meeting won't be one where you are sat talking to a brick wall. I'm getting to the point where I think the downfall of our club is inevitable because no matter what we do/say to the club we get a generic statement copied and pasted with a few changed words saying the same things over and over again and completely glossing over the main issues of concern. I now know that there will never be clarity behind decisions made at the club and a lot of the baffling choices will never be explained but what I can hope for is that on that board at our beloved club there are at least a couple of folk with power and the trust of the owners who will fight the fans' corner, even if it does fall of deaf ears 99% of the time.

Apologies to Mikey for having accused him of publicising this.

Can't get my head around this sit in before the game especially if you can't take in banners to show your protest. I'll be sat in my seat anyhow but it doesn't mean I'm protesting! I agree with Kevin e above regarding the impact on the players if you make your protest heard - may as well just chant Kean out throughout the game. With all respect you will be banging your head against a brick wall in a meeting. If you get some self satisfaction from it then good luck but I think that's about all you will get.
