Who's says things are only eventful on the pitch at Blackburn Rovers?
A little over a week after the season has finished and we've seen more drama coming via gossip/rumours/reports/general bullshitting/guess work from various "sources", "links" and "in the know people" based round secret antics in a small office in Pune, India.
The meetings that took place last week generated more interest than any tactical ploys or swift counter attacks ever did during the regular season as the outcome of these very talks go a long way to determining our immediate future as a club. They of course centre around apparent devil incarnate Steve Kean and his continued role as manager of Blackburn Rovers.
Despite his protests to the contrary, dear Steven's job is very much on the line and depending how hard and in which direction the axe falls (if at all) is a key determinant in a lot of things.
If Kean remains in any capacity then a chain of problems commence like a domino effect. Shirt sales will be low, season ticket renewals based on recent research would be fairly pitiful, fans would revolt, revenue coming into the club would hammer another nail into the rather hefty financial coffin, whatever trust left would again be lost in the owners and we'd start the season a division lower than last with little to no hope of heading back to the Premier League.
If Kean goes, well that would represent the first step back on a long road back to some sort of normality. Whatever normality is... it's easy to forget.
So with such a big decision you'd expect action to be decisive and well judged? Wouldn't you? You would, but then you forget who we are dealing with here, shame on you.
Even worse than that, the people with the emotional investment in Blackburn Rovers and the direction it takes are left none the wiser as to what is happening. We've been kept in the dark and not for the first time questions over the infrastructure at the club and who is really running the show are raised.
You see, the big calls are made in India whilst the directors and executives back in Blackburn hear next to nothing, the signals that are sent out are different depending on which part of the world you want to talk to and no-one apart from the top brass, those who arrogantly dismiss the concerns of others, knows the real answer.
No-one can ask the manager or the owners the questions that really need asking and there is no immediate focal point of who to ask when gossip emerges about the club, there hasn't been since November 2010.
Fans are left confused, bickering with each other and no-one has come forward to address the chaos that seems to envelop the club, in fact it is ignored and a smiley face expressing that everything is in fact fine, when it's not.
The fans can't talk to the club, the club doesn't want to talk properly to the fans and within the club the employees can't get straight answers from higher up the food chain.
All this whilst a man who has been largely responsible (be it directly or indirectly) for the mess and borderline useless in his PR role at Rovers over the last year or so gets promoted to a higher position in the Blackburn hierarchy on the strength of his communication skills. Better still, he is a staunch Kean ally. I would say "you couldn't make it up" but it's getting to the stage where you probably could and others would buy it.
See with men like Paul Agnew it is difficult to know whether he is just a bit slow out of the blocks and incompetent or it's that when the likes of journalists or members of the media ask him to clarify truth or fact with the activities of the club that he just doesn't know the real answer as Venky's won't tell him what's really going on - either way it's damning indicative of the circus that has become Blackburn Rovers.
We've been treated to the occasional "update" club statement on the official website which seem to exist only to show that someone at Rovers knows the type of language that middle managers use in the hope that someone will accept they know what they are doing, but ultimately once published they have generated more questions than they have answers.
Emails from fans are either not replied to in good time or given a copy and paste response, rumours are left as just that and whilst the fans of the football club were being attacked by all and sundry for being "idiots and relegating the club" we received absolutely no defence with the likes of the new Director of Communications being given ample chance and reason to do so. Nothing.
The bad news is set to continue at the club as the Agnew promotion more or less tells it's own tale. The route causes of all the heartache look set to to stay in influential positions at the club despite Venky's having a glorious chance to address the "cancer" that has enveloped one of England's most famous teams.
For everything that has gone wrong it would all just run a little smoother if we had a proper communication channel, a voice of reason and a spokesperson to facilitate liaison with fans and not treat us like a pack of untrained, unimportant sheep.
Instead we get this... the same old cr*p with different job titles for all. Thanks guys.
