Fruitless October for Rovers!

Fruitless October for Rovers!
It was never going to be an easy month. This edition of The Blackburn Times will highlight that, as Rovers managed to grasp 1 point out of an available 12, bid farewell to Mr Syed's multi million dollar bill, welcome a new player, and a Chicken Company!

With all the talk revolving around this Takeover bid, it came as a surprise that in October, a new favourite took over the mantlepiece from Mr Ali Syed. Venkys, a chicken company in India, took pole position, with a reported 46 million pound take over offer, and an initial 5 million pound transfer fee. Whilst many arent happy with the initial figures, there is a business plan in place for long term success.

With the introduction of Venkys, came the withdrawal of Mr Syed's takeover bid, claiming a break down in negotiations, on Blackburn Rovers' side of things....

So developments have recently gone quiet, with Mr Sumit Shah making a last ditch bid. Will this end in November....who knows!

So back to the football pitch, a tough trip to The Brittania saw Blackburn and Stoke put on an encounter which would of pleased the most professional Table Tennis players! And it was Stoke who emerged triumphant in the 3rd set, with Rovers Junior Jon Walters stealing the only goal just after the break, 1-0 Stoke

After this loss, devestating news followed, Keith Andrews would not be available until January. The poor buggger needs groin surgery. Best wishes Keith

Sunderland at home followed, and a superb stint by Paul Robinson following Chris Samba's red card ensure Rovers snatch their only point for the month, a 0-0 draw. Following this game came a trip to ANfield, where Liverpool had just been involved in a takeover themselves, with the new owners watching in the stands.

Blackburn managed to assist the celebrations, putting in one of the worst shifts in a while, Mr Torres coming back to form, scoring the winner as Liverpool won 2-1.

In better news for Rovers fans, Sam Allardyce managed to snare former French youth international Herold Goulon. THought to be a tough tackling defensive minded midfielder (just what we need.....), Goulon was released from his club Lens, and was on the lookout for a club.

Chelsea came calling next, and they snatched all 3 points, when Rovers really should have had the game in the bag. A superb performance from Blackburn meant Chelsea had to wait til the dying stages to steal the points, with Blackburn fans rather dissapointed at the manner of conceding both goals, and the chances missed, especially by a certain Mr Roberts. 2-1 it was....

And whilst the results werent there, the performance was something that deserved more, with the likes of EH Diouf, MB Diouf, Phil Jones, Brett Emerton and Paul Robinson steering the ship, and the local hero David Dunn returning, surely November would be a brighter month?

And so that was October, the month we dropped into the bottom 3, lost one takeover bidder, but gained another!!!
