The more the ever so chaotic Venky's bandwagon trundles Blackburn Rovers dangerously towards the trapdoor of relegation, the more I look back on the last year as a missed opportunity. There must have been some noble and resourceful supporters willing to manage an orderly transition from ownership by the Walkers Trust to something more dignified and democratic? Surely? The end result may have been ultimately the same - eventually - but in so doing it could preserve the dignity and the values that a traditional Lancashire club has.
For these reasons and more you have to support the formation of a Supporters Trust by a group of concerned Rovers fans. It's early days yet. There was a tentative move in the summer, but the group, me included, tiptoed around the club and waited for a meeting with John Williams. We then sat back and watched events unfold. No-one knows for certain what the future holds, but an organised and sensible supporters trust could provide a very valuable rock in a very unstable and volatile situation.
There's a Blackburn Rovers Supporters Trust Facebook page here.
Here's another piece about the Venky's changes here (from Insider).
And here's another, about the role of Jerome Anderson (from Twohundredpercent).
For good measure, this is Supporters Direct.
