Word on the football world grapevine is that Blackburn Rovers new owners, the ROA family, did not know you could be relegated from the premiership when they invested forty six million pounds to purchase the club. It would appear nobody thought to tell them, well you wouldn't would you? Being entranced in the culture of cricket and the Indian premier league, the hapless Indian owners presumed the English football premiership was run on the same lines, in it for life!!
Hence the strange decision to sack Sam Allardyce at the request of agent Jerome Anderson. The ROA family did not think it would matter one way or another and they could install their own persona on the Rovers over a period of time under the guidance of the “useless” Kentaro agency headed by Jerome Anderson. Now panic has set in, hence their sudden presence at west ham on Saturday.
They now know what a clanger they dropped in sacking Allardyce.
So far there have been no denials to the rumour.
Beggar’s belief, you couldn't make it up!!
