Not a bad night of football. I thought Spurs beating Bolton 4-1 was nice, but Cisse's two goals against Chelsea were stunning.

The Venkey's claim they don't want to sell up. http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story/_/id/1067777/rovers-owners-venky's-refute-sale-suggestion?cc=5739

I guess they want to get their money back, which they've fritted away through their own incompetence. It'd be slightly ironic if Big Sam gets West Ham promoted.

I've seen reports that back up rumours and claims that Blackburn Rovers is now not owned by Venky's.

Surely that would have to have been declared to the Premier League?

Venky's was used as a front for money laundering by Kean and Anderson who are the actual owners. As far as the Premier League is concerned Venky's still own Blackburn Rovers.

Steve KEAN (Minor 2nd team coach) is connected to

a number of pretty serious Glasgow criminals who had

a vast amount of money which required laundering.

(2-3million) As an employee of the club KEAN was aware that

ROVERS had been for sale for quite some time with

very little serious interest from anyone, he knew the

price and the money which would be required to

purchase it. He approached his Management

Company KETARO (owned by ANDERSON) and put to him a business plan for the purchase of the club,

this plan would give ANDERSON unofficial control of

the club and enable him to 'legally' perform the sort of

transaction with existing and future players on his

books that got West Ham into trouble with the

TEVEZ / MASSCARNO saga. (the buying and selling of players being the only way to make money from a

Premier League club) The consortium that KEAN suggested involved

himself (representing the the gangster money) being a

shareholder and part owner in the little scheme,

KENTRO unable to purchase a Premier League club

to to league conflict rules, scouted around emerging

markets (India / China / Brazil) for a company to come in as the official new 'owners' capable of

satisfying the fit and proper test laid down by the

league. VENKYS loved the idea as they were keen to

attack the European market and expand beyond India.

The cost to VENKYS for taking part in the venture

was half the purchase price of 43million. (This 20 million was set aside anyway for marketing costs in

breaking into the European market so net coast to

VENKYS being NIL) The remainder of the cost was

met by ANDERSON and a number of others in his

syndicate (including KEAN) The scheme was sold to

all involve as being 'win win' as the purchase price was assured of being returned to all members of the

syndicate by TV money and in worst case relegation

parachute payment which totaled coincidentally

approx 43 million) KEAN had one condition for his involvement, the

removal of BIG SAM and his promotion to Club

Manager. The removal of the established

management infrastructure was essential in helping

the group keep the deal secret, hence JOHN W and

the rest were thanked for their services and shown the door. The recent mortgage in Aug 2011 for 43million is

assured against the TV money for this year and any

subsequent parachute payment from relegation

whether that come this year or in the future. This

money has been returned to all members of the

syndicate to cover their initial stake (hence the secrecy), thus any money made from here on in by

way of transfers, TV money, sale of the club being

total profit to the group. The Indians are basically

passengers on this train and as now they have their

money back they are totally uninterested in the future

of the club, for them it remains what it always has been, a marketing tool. ANDERSON is keen to

continue to use the club as a feeder for his younger

less established players, he makes money by

legitamatly charging massively inflated agent fees for

all players coming in and out, and in the event of a

player making a big breakthrough gains millions for the syndicate in the sell on fee. KEAN..well he's just

living the dream, he would never have made a

Premier League manager as long as he lived, the best

he could aspire to was being someones No 2 and that

dream was 5-10years away. The new deal recently

signed by KEAN is in recognition and reward from all concerned as the others have all done very well out of

the deal to date (he obviously had to be rewarded as

well) He is the Manager and he's going nowhere, not

because he's un-sackable but because he's delivered

what he said and not withstanding HE OWNS PART

OF THE CLUB. (albeit via his gangster friends in Glasgow) All of his little trips to INDIA are not about

him answering to the INDIANS is about him telling

them what to do, when to speak and what to say, all

stuff that needs to be said in person at risk of emails

or phone calls being recorded. The whole thing would

take a financial investigator years to uncover and is more or less impossible to trace as the paper trail all

runs though VENKYS in INDIA. They have the club

pretty much sawn up. The recent interest from the

Middle East is of no interest to the syndicate as they

only stand to gain a little over what they paid, the

rewards from keeping the club are much more to them than that..If this deal ever came out..people will be

going to jail..so don't expect it to anytime soon..Oh

what fun to be a Rovers fan.

Not wanting to sound funny Phil, but where's that from? I'm not saying it's not true (anything is possible), but it's pretty speculative without any evidence.

Alan Pardew has been named Premier League Manager of the Year. It's hard to argue with. He's made some good signings and got the team to at least 5th. Geordie fans must be happy with him.

I was listening to it in the car, coming back from Cardiff. I'm pleased for City fans. I just wish I knew us Spurs fans knew what it was like to win anything.

I think Spurs season was finished the night Capello left England. All speculation about Arry taking the England job and his tax case didn't help.

It certainly cost us a point. The other thing I didn't realise was that the Baggies keeper yesterday (1st time this season) was none other than Marton Fulop. Spurs' old Hungarian reserve keeper. He gave Arsenal two goal and the three points yesterday.

Alex McLeish has been sacked as manager at Villa. I can't say many people will be sorry or surprised.

Can't say I'm surprised. Most Villa fans hated him anyway and wanted him to fail. Just because he came from rivals Birmingham City. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

Rumours that King Kenny is on his way out of Liverpool. Fingers crossed he stays!

Nasri's also had a go at all the Arsenal fans who said he moved for the money. He's gone and said that he's already won some silverware, and he could have stayed and just picked up a nice cheque in London, like many of the current squad are doing!

Not sure if news about Blackburn is Premiership news or not but Steve Kean has come a cropper after a video has been released of him slagging off Sam Allardyce a few months ago.

Big Sam is now suing him. :o

A bit of a turn up for the books. Well done Cardiff! Obviously, not as good as Spurs beating Swansea...

 

A strange season so far, we've scored two goals so far this season, both penalties. We didn't get given a single penalty the whole of last season. The thing which continues to worry me is that despite some excellent play, we're not creating enough goal scoring opportunities. Someone like Willian could have been useful. Instead he's chosen to rot in West London. Apparently he's got a thing for roubles.

Strange how you're getting penalties now you don't have that fella playing for you who threw himself to the floor every opportunity he got.

 

As for Willian, yep, we only bought him to prevent Tottenham from walking away with the Premier League title (believe that, and you'll believe anything!) :)

Who said anything about the title? It's just obvious that we need an attacking creative midfielder and you don't. Care to list the talents in your squad for that position?
