Over the past few weeks we have seen a small, but significant shift in the battle for our beloved club. Results have taken a turn for the better, attitudes in the press have started to shift away from the fans and more towards the owners, as have the protests themselves.
Jerome Anderson's interview with Sky Sports was a PR disaster, a letter from the Walker Trust era's board was leaked that gave a true insight into just what things were like at Ewood 12 months ago, and perhaps most damning of all for the owners, an article in the Economic Times in India last week was absolutely scathing in their analysis of what has gone wrong for Venkys in football
Perhaps, just perhaps this is the beginning of the end for Venkys, but they need a viable option to get them out, and that's where Dan Grabko's plan for a Blackburn Football Charitable Fund might just come in.
Dan has spent a lot of time over the past couple of weeks putting together a business plan that would see Rovers taken over by a Trust, set up & paid for by fans with the sole purpose of providing funding to run the football club year on year so that we never again have to go cap in hand to a 3rd party for money.
The plan makes fascinating reading, and right now strikes me as the best hope of seeing the back of Venky's.
You can download a copy of the latest version of this work in progress from the BFCF website, I suggest you do that now, even if you have read it already, it will have been updated. Go and read it again, then come back.
Done that? Did you leave Dan some feedback? Thanks.
Alongside the BFCF website is a market research survey that I encourage ALL Rovers fans to fill in, no matter what you think of the plan, it's just as important to fill in if you don't like that idea as it is if you love it.
Please send the details from these two websites to your friends & family, take details of the website to the next match or give them out in the pub, we need everyone to know about so we stand as good a chance as possible of making something happen.
