Blackburn fans to protest again

15 November 2011 12:11
Blackburn fans opposed to owners Venky's and manager Steve Kean have revealed plans for more protests.

They have announced a 'week of mourning' to mark the death of the club and will lay black and white flowers and wreaths at the foot of the Jack Walker statue, behind the Ronnie Clayton Blackburn End.

There are also more demonstrations planned for this weekend's Barclays Premier League match at Wigan.

Kean out: Blackburn fans have been protesting against their boss for much of the season

'As supporters, we have been badly let down,' organisers Glen Mullan and Simon Littler said. 'We have tried and tried again to open a communication channel to have our serious concerns raised and to date the club has failed to listen to these pleas.

'They have tried to turn supporter onto supporter, whilst continuing to let our club be steered with no leadership and direction.

'More and more supporters are voting with their feet as attendances dwindle, whilst frustration and worry is now at boiling point as the anger rages.

'Supporters do not like being used and their allegiance is very firmly behind the removal of Venky's from Blackburn Rovers.'

The club's Indian owners mark their first anniversary in charge this week. Since they appointed Kean to replace Sam Allardyce last December the Scot has won just six of 32 league matches and only once in 11 games this season.
