When the Venky's see this perhaps they will realise how close they are to losing everything.

Rover since 1947 says...

The passion and commitment of Wayne Wild and his compatriots shone through like a beacon during the presentation, all the questions were dealt with honestly and with absolute transparency.

What a contrast to the current owners and the communications coming out of Ewood for the last 18 months.

I wish BRSIT every success in their endeavours to restore the Rovers to its rightful place in the hearts of the Blackburn Rovers family.

Great turn-out and an excellent, productive and positive meeting.

Great that everybody is able to put relegation and the associated issues behind them (well maybe with the exception of Glen lol!) and plan for the future.

Well done BRSIT.

Oooooooooooo!!

Hundreds eh?

Such a 'giant' of a club can't even muster anything past the 1k mark.

Still, when your core support comes from soup kitchens and hostels they will all be pre occupied drinking White lightning or smoking crack to turn out for the meeting.

Good to see Huddersfield got promotion into the Championship. Can't wait for the 'no shots' to get turned over by them.

It will be like re living that moment when you spent 10 mins in the Campions league only to be dumped out of it in the first round by a bunch of part timers, butchers and builders.

UTC!

If you are attempting to take the p@$$, then I suggest you get your facts right you m0r0n. Its gratifying to know that fans of other clubs are paying attention to whats going on at Rovers. We can presume, by the lack of factually correct statements, that you are indeed a Burnley fan, and as such would have no concept of what its like to play in the European leagues of late. So please pick up your walking stick on the way out, go and claim your benefits, do your homework on google and we will see you back here in a couple of days. There there.

I was there on Saturday, initially believing that Wayne Wild was just generating publicity for something that would go nowhere. I'm not ashamed to say that. Fair play to him though, because in 12 weeks he has managed to get something together that actually gives us some hope, obviously depending on whether Venky's entertain BRSIT. As he honestly and openly admitted, that's not really something that he can influence. If they decide to sit tight and rip everything out of the club there are others to blame. Fair play to the great Simon Garner and Glen Keeley for getting involved. Let's hope that other ex players get involved to raise the awareness if nothing else. If you can't pledge a £1,000.00 on your own, and let's face it who can, then get a group together and do it that way. The best bit about it is 1 share, 1 vote. It stops Johnny Big Knacks from coming in and trying to gain more shares and influence. Rovers Reserves play FC United on 1st August at Stalybridge. There's an opportunity to talk to people from a fan/community owned club.
