Probably you have already seen the excellent documentary. VENKYS, THE FALL OF BLACKBURN ROVERS.
Made by documentary maker Rishi Sikka (pic above) in the summer 2012.
It is featured on YouTube and on a Jerome Anderson’s Google page.
It is a documentary which plots the downfall of Rovers from November 2010 until the Summer 2012. It features many well-known journalists, media pundits, former Rovers players, and officials and Councillors of Blackburn and Darwen, including local MP’s. Not to mention Shebby Singh.
It has had almost 58,000 hits. Quite modest in my view for such an excellent piece, portraying Rovers most turbulent history.
What is really striking and frightening is the doom and gloom it paints for the Rovers future.
Three years hence things have got even worse at Ewood Park than in the Summer 2012, and the documentary is quite poignant. If you have not seen it, do so.
Also on YouTube and on Anderson’s Google page is the infamous interview Anderson gave Sky Sports on the 10.01.2012. in which Anderson tries to absolve himself of any blame for Rovers demise and paints a rosy picture for Rovers future.
Watch it and weep.
Surprisingly it has only 5,000 hits, everyone with Rovers interest at heart should watch it. Then get angry.
