Action Group to meet with Football League

Action Group to meet with Football League

The BRFC Action Group are set to meet with the Football League tomorrow with the aim being to ensure that the league keeps a watchful eye over the way the club is run.

The meeting is the next stage in the plan that the now FSF accredited Action Group have put together after meetings with the Premier League and it's chief Richard Scudamore over a month ago put the organisation on the map and registered it's initial concern with the League over the activities at Rovers since Venky's gained control of the club back in November 2010.

Since then relegation has been suffered by the club, who now find themselves in the Championship, as a result of a bizarre set of events that ultimately dragged the club down and sent a large section of the Rovers fans into revolt.

The entire committee (which includes our very own Glen Mullan) are to meet in Preston tomorrow afternoon with the Football League having received statements from people with a vested interest in the club and the intention is to make the League fully aware of the situation which has developed at Blackburn Rovers and to ensure the League of which Rovers are now a member can put in place steps to monitor the goings on at the club.

Another big step and one which the Action Group should be applauded for given their continued hard work behind the scenes which often goes unnoticed.

I honestly don't want to appear against Glen and BRAG in any way, just playing Devil's Advocate but there must surely come a point when the behind-the-scenes stuff must become public? I mean, these meetings are obviously vital steps along the road but those fans not party to these forums are crying out for change and I was hoping that with whatever has been uncovered, actions would have been taken against Venkys and the club in the public eye before the season starts. The impression I get is that serious wrongdoing HAS occurred and bits of proof are coming together. So the summary question is: When will a real, game-changing scoop along the lines of: 'Venkys forced to sell' appear in my morning paper?

The more un noticed the better. I am sure that the representives of the football league will be glad to know that they do not have procedures in place to monitor members of their league. And who has a 'vested' interest.
