Here's what I've heard about Blackburn Rovers. It's a fairly unpleasant workplace to be behind the scenes. Tom Finn is relieved to be on his way and won't be the last of the old regime to go. Appointing Paul Hunt as a deputy chief executive to work alongside a managing director was never going to last. There is no sign of a new chairman. There is still no sponsor willing to pay the £5m they were asking. This in turn is delaying the marketing of next season's kit and the distribution of the season ticket renewal packs. A betting company was lined up (groan), but was knocked back by the Indians. No serious decision is taken without approval of the two new directors Gandhi Babu and Mahesh Gupta. They have to consult with the Rao family on everything.
On the pitch, Nicola Kalinic, Chris Samba and Phil Jones are almost certain to be sold. That's not something I've heard from the inside. It's a gut feeling.
As for Steve Kean, rumours that Rochdale have requested permission to speak to him about the vacant manager's job at Spotland are just wishful thinking on my part.
Does any of this suggest that Venky's know what they are doing?
