Although Blackburn lost 1-0 to Wigan and are now certain to be relegated this season. They won big points on the creative protests scale.
In November, they showed their arts and crafts abilities by rendering a protest ban completely useless.
Then their weapon of choice was an airplane which had been instructed to fly over the stadium during the game with the fans’ current mantra ‘Kean Out’ attached to it.
Yesterday, a live chicken was their weapon of choice. Wearing the Blackburn flag as a cape, the proud fowl invaded the pitch early in the first half of Blackburn’s relegation battle again Wigan.
He succeeded to stop the game until he was caught in the Wigan goal net by the Wigan goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi and Blackburn’s Yakubu.
The chicken was released as a protest against Blackburn’s unpopular owners, the Indian poultry giants, Venkys. Thus answering the age old question of ‘Why did the chicken cross the road?’
Move over Anfield cat, there is a new animal hero in the premier league — The Blackburn chicken.
