Venky's to sell? Latest rumour to wet your pants over

Post by Rover the Moon » Wed Jul 06, 2011 12:52 pm

Apparently there are inconfirmed reports on the BedwettersRFCS site regarding and unconfirmed rumour about someone, as yet unconfirmed, hearing an as yet unconfirmed rumour that Venky's are looking to sell the club. Once the unconfirmed rumour has been confirmed then the rumour will be confirmed or denied. But I can tell you, though as yet it is unconfirmed, that a well know scottish journalist you peddles 10 hour old sky sports news articles as his exclusives in the Mirror that we are living in "Crazy Days"

And then one of the Venky boys will appear on SSN repeatedly saying that they don't know where this is coming from.

Maybe it's what Mrs Desai meant when she said we'd have our transfers finalised in the next couple of weeks - she meant the transfer of the whole club? ;)

this is amusing to read and get worried about if your the kinda person that does ;) ...

nicked form a post on brfcs... :lol:
Accepted it is a rumour but it makes sense.

Let's look at the gap between promise and delivery. When they bought Rovers:

- Venky's talked about global branding

- Venky's talked about Rovers being India's football club

- Venky's talked of naming rights at Ewood

- Venky's talked about fantastic sponsorships

- Venky's talked about leasing players

- Venky's talked about a wonderful new horizon which wasn't about playing for PL survival on the last day of the season

Then Venky's talked about marquee signings, GBP40m to spend this summer, Champions League, deserving a top 8 finish and a Cup win and so on....

What has happened? Nothing

Many posters have correctly pointed out that as owners they have every right to run the club like a bunch of eccentric four year olds with bizarre firings and hirings but even in Pune they must surely heard the gales of laughter from the football world.

If I were sitting in Pune I would be feeling very very disappointed and be looking at the financial numbers including season ticket sales (I do have the 30 June number and it is scary) and be seriously worried that the families' savings had met a bottomless black hole. A dispassionate glance at the fixture list which sees four top six clubs visit Ewood in succession must fill them with dread at what the League table will look like after Chelsea have been on 5 November.

I think they would be reluctant sellers but deep down Mrs D would be delighted and relieved to see the back of us.
think id love it if they fucked off now 8-)

I find it hard to beleive that adults can be affected by pathetic teasing. Surely that ends when you leave school??

ah, i wouldnt say affected and wouldnt call it pathetic teasing, its just playful banter and being the only rovers fan in a man united fan dominated workplace, its only fair after what i did after lost to barca in the champs league final ;) plus i think its quite funny they think they have found out all the latest gossip and start to send me website links thinking i dont have a an idea about it :roll:

Apparently we have already been relegated too due to the fact we haven't signed anyone yet, despite the fact other clubs haven't signed anyone yet either. Not having a sponsor yet and the new shirts not being shown yet are also a major contribution.
