Club supporters 'disgusted'

We as a group of supporters, elected by its members, are disgusted that our club has been allowed to be pillaged with very little resistance from the regulatory bodies who should act in the best interest of the sport and supporters.

Many fans pinpoint the club's takeover by Venky's 18 months ago as the start of their demise.

Venky's sacked Allardyce soon into their stewardship and appointed Kean, who was the subject of demonstrations throughout this season's struggles.

Last week a letter from Rovers deputy chief executive Paul Hunt to Venky's calling for Kean's removal surfaced in the media.

Hunt has since left the club in what was described by Venky's as a cost-cutting measure following relegation.

In the last two weeks supporters' greatest fears have been realised as our club has lost its fight for Premier League survival, following the club's decision to keep manager Steve Kean in charge of first-team affairs."This is despite, according to, the well-publicised leaked letter by the DCEO Paul Hunt from December 2011 stating that Steve Kean had lost the dressing room, and the board had requested his removal as well as the wider supporter base."
