With hindsight, is there anything the club wished it had done differently since the takeover?

Do the owners feel they can ever win over fans who want them out of the club?

Where does the club feel it sits amongst our rivals in the league?

With attendances dwindling, are there any plans to try and encourage fans back to Ewood? (fans that aren't part of the angry minority online/boycotters/morons)
Ticket offers for league games etc, kids for a quid, cheap league/FA cup tickets?

Simon - both.

Ticket offers are run every year. There are league limitations on what the clubs can do with ticket pricing and Blackburn have used their allocation of "uneven" priced games each year.

I don't think pricing is really the issue? Rovers need a better product; better performances, better results, better atmosphere. But it's going to be near impossible to get that without cooperation from the dissenting fan groups.

Agreed. Ultimately if you have a team that are winning then it brings in fans, new and old, increases merch sales, advertising revenue etc etc. The way to help a team win is not to boycott the games of course. Every conversation I've ever had with club staff has come down to this - these issues are ultimately decided by the football side. The boardroom decisions can only have so much impact on attendance etc without on field success.

Is anybody interested in joining Eth at the meeting as a representative of Roverstalk?

When and where? Happy to talk about getting Igor Tudor in as director of football, and changing the mascot to a kestrel. So long as it's convenient.

Of course, I could just read and see that it is in fact Thursday, 29th September at 6pm.

Which I can't make cause I'm at a gig.

Can someone else take up the kestrel mantle?

I vote Franco. Also, he/she should set the questions.
