FANS TAKE TO THE STREETS

The fans of English Premier League club Blackburn Rovers are ready to take to the streets once again in protest against the ownership of the club by Indian hatcheries giant Venky’s prior to the game against fellow English Premier League club Aston Villa.

BRFC Action Group, which has been immensely critical of the Venky’s ownership of the club ever since they took over the club almost a year and half back now, have planned to stage three marches that will begin at the same time from three different parts of the city, ultimately culminating at Ewood Park, the home ground of the club.

The BRFC Action Group has been left extremely angry by the lack of funds made available for transfers and the sale of star players such as Christopher Samba. Furthermore, most of the fans also feel let down by the failure to deliver on the promises made by the hatcheries giant before they took over the club from Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers is one of the oldest football clubs in the English Premier League and ever since winning the League almost 16 years back now, they have not had any significant success.

Angry Blackburn fans had already taken to the streets earlier in the season, demanding the sacking of manager Steve Kean but that has not materialized. Kean has managed to win only 15 of the 54 games that he has been in charge of the club so far since taking over from Sam Allardyce after he was sacked almost immediately after Venky’s took over the club.

The official statement of the fans of Blackburn Rovers has also condemned the performance of the Scottish manager as the club fights for survival in the League with only 21 points from the 26 games that they have played so far this season. If you were having a football bet online that Blackburn will go down you wouldn't get very good odds.
