OK, I'm done with the chicken jokes (Except for this one). But truth be told, the chicken jokes are pretty cheap humor. The sad part isn't that they are owned by a poultry company (I really wouldn't care). The sad part is that they are owned by a company that bought them for the wrong reasons.

It's obvious that the VH Group bought them in order to increase exposure for their companies and maybe even make a little profit too. They obviously didn't buy it because they were lifelong Blackburn fans.This will inevitably backfire because football just isn't a profitable business in England. And this is where the problem lies for investors that are trying to get something more than a Champions League or Premier League title. It's just not possible.

I think the moral of the story is beware of Eastern Hemisphere owners/buyers. They are almost always fans of select teams (ie Big four) and if they buy your squad and aren't known to be the biggest Premier League fans ever, then just get ready for a future of trouble.

On the match side of things: Everton need to get three points or every fan goes into super panic mode. The fan base can not take another loss for sure.

Everton will surely find itself in quicksand with a loss here. Pray that we win.

UPDATE: Here are the lineups

Everton XI: Howard, Neville, Jags, Baines, Heitinga, Arteta, Fellaini, Osman, Barkley, Anichebe

Blackburn XI:  Robinson, Salgado, Olsson, Samba, Givet, Emerton, Dunn, Pedersen, N'Zonzi, Hoillet, Roberts

Everton Bench: Mucha, Beckford, Cahill, Vellios, Hibbert, Baxter, Billy

Blackburn Bench: Bunn, Rochina, Formica, Goodwillie, Petrovic, Hanley, Lowe

Just one more chicken joke video after the break.

If you are easily offended, don't watch. Definitely NSFW.
