Venky’s could have taken a step towards reconciliation with angry fans by making the decision to sack Steve Kean and by bringing in an experienced manager and chairman to set plans into motion to help Rovers bounce right back from the Championship. Instead, Kean, labeled by Venky’s as ‘unsackable’, is seemingly set for a stay, with Venky’s set to continue running the club themselves.
As the owners march on, making puzzling, baffling and incomprehensible decisions, are they really successful, intelligent business people or simply plain ‘confused’?
The case for astute business people

Football agent, Jerome Anderson, is head of the sports management company SEM, which advised Venky’s, Blackburn Rovers owners, on their takeover. Shockingly, Anderson counts among his clients, Blackburn’s current manager, Steve Kean, who was brought in by the Venky’s, along with a number of Anderson-connected players, including the agents own son.
So, with a football agent exerting such power, influence and control over a football club – effectively ruling the roost at Ewood – where are the FA on what is without doubt unethical, improper and rotten abuse that has seen the Pune poultry pushers plague, pillage and pulverize a founding member of our fantastic game it into the ground, in just 18 months.

As slapstick relegations go, Wolves’ departure to the Championship after a three-year stint in the top-tier was relatively inevitable. On the pitch anyway, after the 5-0 mauling at Fulham on the 2nd of March, and falling ultimately 7 points adrift as they met their end at home to Manchester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers were long since resigned to the trips to Burnley and Charlton that await them in the next season.
One win in the past 21 matches drew the air of gloom that filled over Molineux during City’s win, as the torrid weather provided the pathetic fallacy for the day. However, it was one particular defeat in this wretched run that opened the door for the West-Midland brand of lunacy that drove Wolves to a speedier fate.
