East Lancashire derby...Where Sunday’s clash could be won and lost

First published in Sport

Rovers reporter PAUL WHEELOCK and his Clarets counterpart SUZANNE GELDARD take a look at where Sunday’s East Lancashire derby could be won and lost...

The partnership of Ings & Vokes

SG: With 42 goals between them they go into this game with tremendous ammunition and a telepathic connection that most Championship defences have struggled to deal with.

It is not even a concern that Ings goes into the fixture on his longest run of games without a goal – albeit just four – because there are goals in other areas, as proved last weekend against Derby.

But it will be crucial that both return from international duty unscathed.

PW: There is absolutely no question Rovers – no matter the make-up of their injury-ravaged defence – have to keep the Championship’s deadliest strike partnership quiet.

But what is equally important is stopping their supply line – and this is where Craig Conway comes in. The winger – one of the few Rovers players to emerge with any credit against Bolton last weekend – will have to spend time tracking back if he is going to keep Kieran Trippier in check. As proved in September’s reverse clash at Turf Moor, the Clarets right-back is his side’s most creative force.

David Dunn’s influence

SG: It cannot be underestimated. Widely regarded as ‘Mr Blackburn’ if there is one fixture he would run through brick walls and over broken glass to be involved in – and have an impact – it is this one. But after what happened last season, Burnley are aware now more than ever of what to expect from Rovers’ homegrown midfielder.

PW: Even if Dunn is half-fit I would still name him on the bench. His mere presence among the Rovers substitutes would be enough to spook a Clarets support still shaken by his injury-time heroics in last season’s corresponding derby.

No-one gets this match more than Dunn and if Sunday’s clash is close with 20 minutes to play who better to bring on than him?

The tactical battle of the managers

SG: A cat and mouse affair is on the cards. While Sean Dyche primes his players with the intention of going out to win every game, this is a ‘must not lose’ and after last weekend’s humiliation at Bolton I’d expect Gary Bowyer to feel the same.

I don’t anticipate either side giving too much away.

Having said that, the Clarets could shock everyone and set off with the high tempo they did against Nottingham Forest and take the game by the scruff of the neck. They are certainly capable of it.

PW: Burnley manager Sean Dyche has proved second to none when it comes to setting up a team this season and it will be a big challenge for Gary Bowyer to get one over his counterpart from across the East Lancashire divide.

But Rovers boss Bowyer has won the tactical battle in big games, against more experienced managers, before this season – think back to Reading and Leeds United away in the league and at home to Manchester City in the FA Cup for proof of that.

 

Winning the midfield battle

SG: Burnley have benefited from consistency in selection all over the pitch this season – Saturday was their seventh game unchanged. But the partnership and understanding between Dean Marney and David Jones in the middle has made them a vital cog in the wheel.

And of course Jones has recent inside knowledge of the home dressing room at Ewood Park, which could play into the Clarets’ hands.

In contrast, Rovers have not been able to name a settled side this season, let alone in midfield.

PW: Should Gary Bowyer have signed David Jones instead of allowing him to join Burnley?

On the evidence of the way Jones has performed so consistently alongside Dean Marney in the Clarets engine room this season, you would have to say yes.

However the answer may have been different had injury not robbed Bowyer of Corry Evans for most of the season.

The good news is Evans is back and there must surely be a temptation to throw him straight in.

Burnley overcoming their ‘mental block’

SG: Dyche’s side go into Sunday’s showdown in their best shape compared to recent derbies, and the bigger picture of a Premier League prize could actually serve to take the pressure off this particular feature. The players have been involved in a few of these fixtures now and have more of a grasp of what it means to the supporters, the build-up, atmosphere and animosity surrounding it.

And if they needed a psychological advantage, the 20-point gap between the two teams going into the game should do it.

PW: Having gone so long without beating the old enemy it has become ingrained into the psyche of Clarets supporters that no matter how well their team play on the day, by hook or by crook Rovers will find some way to deny them.

Just look at the last two derbies with David Dunn’s injury-time, suspiciously offside strike and the most fortuitous goal of Jordan Rhodes’ career.

The big question is whether Burnley boss Sean Dyche can stop the winless run from weighing heavily around the shoulders of his players too.

Grant Hanley returning for Rovers

SG: His leadership and organisational skills were missed last weekend, although by all accounts his presence in a similar all-round performance would not have made a jot of difference at the Reebok against Bolton.

The Scot seems easily wound-up, so the Clarets could play on that weakness in the inevitable event that emotions run high although having a recognised centre half in the back line will be a boost to Rovers.

PW: Make no mistake Rovers need their captain back for Sunday.

Having come up through the club’s ranks he knows exactly what this match means and should Matt Kilgallon miss out, he will have to use his leadership skills to marshal the back four.

I'm serious - after 34 years this is our best chance of the season to 'win' something (let's be honest we're never going to win the league or a cup like they have in the recent past). I think they'll be happy with a draw and regrouping for next season whereas this is probably our last and best chance to beat them. For that reason I'm just hoping it doesn't fall apart on us as the pressure is all on us to deliver. We perhaps deserved some good fortune after Dunn's late goal at Deadwood and that tackle on Ings at t'Turf though my worry is we might have run it out and ultimately get nothing out of the season.

But for all your inane babble you haven't won anything have you?

Can't you see that all the regular posters on here are simply extracting the urine from you now? Time for you to do another ID change, but you will have to change your linguistic DNA because you are far too easy to spot.

One guarantee in any sport, there are no guarantees.

There is no guarantee that despite your obvious superiority this season that you will win on Sunday, personally I wouldn't bet on Rovers beating you because I am a realist, but if we do manage to pull it off just imagine your despair and pain?

Beaten by Rovers at their lowest ebb this season.
Beaten by a club that can barely get 11 fit players on the park.
Beaten by a club that you have derided all season because your pathetic little club has the upper hand in gawd knows how many years.

There is a difference between you and me, if Burnley win and deserve to do so I will be on here and say so, openly and honestly, if Rovers win we won't see you for dust, tears and tantrums.

Nuff said.

A very sensible post Tom. I like how realistic you are and don't assume you're going to conquer the world because you've had you're greatest season since 400BC.

Do you think you'll keep hold of Dyche and the 3 decent players you have considering their wages are on par with a Polish cleaner working in Wilko?

Is it true that you're fellow claret who calls himself look up blackburn (amongst various user names) is in fact a cross dressing lady-boy who's brown stars had more c0ck than a second hand rifle?

Thick Rovers tw4ts. Maybe you should read the article first before playing bully the Burnley fan, that way you might not look as silly.

20 points and growing by the week! That's the here and now, and that's all that matters.

You claim this is a Rovers page and yet the vote section shows that Burnley have 46% with 19% going for a draw. This just shows the level of confidence you morons have in your "team".

Enjoy your whupping courtesy of the Clarets.

You claim this is a Rovers page and yet the vote section shows that Burnley have 46% with 19% going for a draw. This just shows the level of confidence you morons have in your "team".

Enjoy your whupping courtesy of the Clarets.

And yet only yesterday you were posting (yet again) your list from half century ago when Burnley won a few games in a row.

Not many people are still alive from the last time you actually won anything of note.

Div 1 in 1959-60
FA Cup 1962
Div 2 1972-73, Div 3 1982-83 and Div 4 1992-94, I will give you those if you want to count them.

Do you notice a pattern or would you like me to draw you a graph?

You talk about Rovers "arrogance" but look at all the drivel spouted by so called Burnley fans on every Rovers thread, is that not "arrogance"?

One season in the sun and the maggots crawl out of the shitpile.

I don't mind mickey take and banter, it's all part of the fun.

But if you dish out crap expect some back in spade when you do finally hit a rough patch, as every team does.

An injury hit, badly out of form team with non-scoring strikers like the Rovers must have absoluely no chance against the most in-form team in the division who can boast not ony two great goalscorers, but also one of the best defences in the entire league. Burnley we salute you.
(With two fingers that is).

But will they be raised high in the air for `Victory`...? Or high in the air as `abuse`..? Possibly both?

Listening to the crowing clarets on here, It seems it will be incredible (if not impossible), for us to get even a corner, let alone a point from this weekends game. We have a worse than zero chance of competing with you and our low scoring - defensively poor side will probably capitulate easily and you could run a record score up against our dismal side. Maybe.

But the Rovers fans have always `dared to dream` which is why with Uncle Jacks support we were able to climb out of one division and soar to the highest pinnacle of the English game, and win the Premiership title. Since then many much bigger clubs have spent much more, and tried more often and yet never succeeded.

Thats why there is always a chance of the improbable / impossible happening and thats why (even against your impressive form and great goalscorers and miserly defence) we dare to dream.

Enjoy the moment Clarets, the game has not started yet.

Oh dear me, the cracks are really starting to show now, and it's only Thursday!

We have built a large modern stadium
Have a 2nd to non youth academy/training facilities
We won the Premiership
Played in Europe in numerous seasons
Won the league cup
Attracted some of the best players in the world to play in the famous half's
and hammered you clowns on numerous occasions

Look up you say? Get a grip lad eh... you are so far behind us it's unreal. One decent season which will no doubt end a hilarious play off defeat and you think you are superior?? One step closer to the sun, but still in our shadow!!!
Played in Europe in numerous seasons? Twice? We've played in Europe that many times, and with slightly less embarrassing outcomes. So you've won the prem? It's only the top flight of English football, we've won that a couple of times as well. A "large" stadium? Take a look at Old Trafford, the Emirates, the Etihad and others, THEY are large stadia.
Typical Rovers arrogance.
Not many people are still alive from the last time you actually won anything of note.

Div 1 in 1959-60
FA Cup 1962
Div 2 1972-73, Div 3 1982-83 and Div 4 1992-94, I will give you those if you want to count them.

Do you notice a pattern or would you like me to draw you a graph?

You talk about Rovers "arrogance" but look at all the drivel spouted by so called Burnley fans on every Rovers thread, is that not "arrogance"?

One season in the sun and the maggots crawl out of the shitpile.

I don't mind mickey take and banter, it's all part of the fun.

But if you dish out crap expect some back in spade when you do finally hit a rough patch, as every team does.
Shameful arrogance from Blackburn Rovers.

The last time Blackburn Rovers won the English league title fair and square (i.e. without a massive unfair financial advantage) was in 1914. Before the first World War.

The last time Burnley won the English league title fair and square was in 1960.

And that gentlemen speaks volumes. I rest my case.

A very sensible post Tom. I like how realistic you are and don't assume you're going to conquer the world because you've had you're greatest season since 400BC.

Do you think you'll keep hold of Dyche and the 3 decent players you have considering their wages are on par with a Polish cleaner working in Wilko?

Is it true that you're fellow claret who calls himself look up blackburn (amongst various user names) is in fact a cross dressing lady-boy who's brown stars had more c0ck than a second hand rifle?
Thanks. All I'l trying to do is keep peoples feet on the ground as doing alright in the 2nd tier is hardly something to rave about. If we manage to rag going up, then no, I have to say I expect Dyche to behave like Coyle as the truch is we simply don't have the foundations.

Look up!
And yet you still spend your entire life on a rovers page?! Baffling.
You obviously didn't read the headline did you? This is NOT a Rovers page, unless you lay claim to the whole of the Lancashire Telegraph. Read the headline again, carefully, and then come on here and tell me that I'm wrong. It's actually, in case you can't be bothered, yet again, to read the headline, a JOINT page, headed by both reporters.
Some people!!
Hi Owd Nick, Looks like the wind ups have well and truly started before Sunday. Like you I agree, we have done nothing yet this season, certainly put ourselves in the box seat and the players and manager seemed very focused on the job in hand which is highly encouraging and points in the right direction.
You are right - Sunday would be a bad defeat for us, personally i would take a point now. Not sure if you are at your lowest ebb of the season, 1 point at home against Birmingham and someone else might eclipse most moments.
As for only barely 11 fit players, how many times did we all get to hear about the size of Rovers squad, 43 is a number I seem to recall. Might not have been you saying it but I can see why others respond to this.
Having the upper hand in gawd knows how many years. Yes that is very true and been a long time coming. I was on the turf when the first plane was sent, very funny moment IMO so you can't really blame Burnley fans for having a go back, it has been some time to claim some bragging rights (Note the word some) which i guess goes hand in hand with the derisory comments about your club.
Sunday of course holds the significance of being a Derby. The way I am looking at it is that it is another match en route to hoping to achieve what we have possibly created. As I started, I would take a point as that would reinforce what we have achieved in the past 2 games. Wins at home and draws away are all we need now at most. The odd away win is purely a bonus and would nullify any home draws or defeats.
Rovers have a record to lose and we have everything to win.

What exactly are "Rovers pages"? I go online to the Telegraph football section, see a related article and post on it or not. Nowhere does it say on my computer that "this is a Rovers page". I post on "articles" (never on Rovers articles unless at derby time) and in this case an article by BOTH team's reporters is fair game. Do Rovers fans live in an alternative universe?

I guess it's said that form goes out the window on derby day and that may be so. I do, however, believe in what SD is doing at Burnley and I believe in his ability to keep the Clarets on task. Blackburn may be entering a rougher patch with all the injuries and this bodes well for Burnley. Defense is not a strong suit for the Rovers and I see a Clarets win because of that. Of course predictions are like....etc, etc. GO CLARETS!!

Please explain where you cropped up from, where you live and what "big city" club you support. It will almost certainly be a club that was nothing more than a patch of waste ground while Burnley and Blackburn were playing football. What Burnley and Blackburn have are REAL supporters who stick with it through thick and thin (mainly), not trophy hunters supporting big clubs because of the trophies they may win. I know Man Utd and Liverpool "fans" whose only connection with the city concerned is that they support the football club, with never a manc or a scouser between them. Are you one of those? You are probably young with no knowledge of the history of football in this country and no memory of life before the over-hyped and over funded premier league.
What you are talking about here is a derby of such passion that the police have to make it impossible for fans to make their own way to the ground, not some bunch of prawn sandwich eating trophy hunters watching massively overpaid prima donnas diving about in "agony" when some breaks wind in their general direction.
The arrogance of some so-called fans is beyond measure. I suppose you think that the prem should only be for teams with gates of over 30k rather than what happens on the pitch. That, my ignorant friend, isn't football.

How strange, you said the EXACT same thing prior to our game with Nottingham Forest.. we won 3-1. You then said the EXACT same thing prior to our game with Derby.. we won 2-0.

You also predicted a win for Blackburn at Bolton... you got spanked 4-0.

Here's a few facts for you to mull over.....

Burnley FC are 2nd in the league.
Burnley FC are 5 points clear of 3rd place.
Burnley FC are 20 points clear of you morons.

Look up!
Where have you been hiding for the past 35 years??

A few facts for you to mull over.

We have built a large modern stadium
Have a 2nd to non youth academy/training facilities
We won the Premiership
Played in Europe in numerous seasons
Won the league cup
Attracted some of the best players in the world to play in the famous half's
and hammered you clowns on numerous occasions

Look up you say? Get a grip lad eh... you are so far behind us it's unreal. One decent season which will no doubt end a hilarious play off defeat and you think you are superior?? One step closer to the sun, but still in our shadow!!!
Played in Europe in numerous seasons? Twice? We've played in Europe that many times, and with slightly less embarrassing outcomes. So you've won the prem? It's only the top flight of English football, we've won that a couple of times as well. A "large" stadium? Take a look at Old Trafford, the Emirates, the Etihad and others, THEY are large stadia.
Typical Rovers arrogance.
Typical dingle ignorance. Next time you post on here, get your facts right because in typical dingle fashion your comments are complete garbage.
Please point out where I am wrong. Have you played in Europe more than twice (two campaigns that is, not two games), if you have then I will hold my hand up. When was the third time? Have we not won the championship of England twice? Did we not play in Europe? Would your stadium not fit in one corner of the above mentioned stadia?
Perhaps you could explain how my comments are "garbage"? My facts are usually right but I will admit when I am wrong. Answers on a postcard please.
By the way, what exactly do you mean by "on here"? Are you under the illusion that this is a Rovers article? It's joint article and therefore, by definition, is open to comments from all. Or am I wrong on that as well?
Yes, we have played in Europe more than twice, so I'll accept your apology and assume you'll hold your hands up.

As for the stadium, my fellow Rovers fan was pointing out we have a modern large stadium and at no point did he compare it to Old Trafford or the Emirates but was merely pointing out that, compared to Burnleys, Blackburns ground is both larger and more modern.

Once again you've assumed we're arrogant but it's not arrogance, just plain facts and that's what seems to stick in your throats.

By the way ''on here'' means exactly that. You have posted on here, have you not? At no point did I mention this was a Rovers article or that it isn't open to comments from all, I simply made a remark that highlighted your ignorance.

By the way, the postcard gag would've been quite funny 20 years ago but as with your ground is out of date and from another era.

So, you'd be right in questioning whether you're wrong on that aswell......

This 'Derby' involves 2 founder members of the football league going toe to toe almost 130 years on. many trophies between us etc etc. That my friend is what I call football history.

(With two fingers that is).

But will they be raised high in the air for `Victory`...? Or high in the air as `abuse`..? Possibly both?

Listening to the crowing clarets on here, It seems it will be incredible (if not impossible), for us to get even a corner, let alone a point from this weekends game. We have a worse than zero chance of competing with you and our low scoring - defensively poor side will probably capitulate easily and you could run a record score up against our dismal side. Maybe.

But the Rovers fans have always `dared to dream` which is why with Uncle Jacks support we were able to climb out of one division and soar to the highest pinnacle of the English game, and win the Premiership title. Since then many much bigger clubs have spent much more, and tried more often and yet never succeeded.

Thats why there is always a chance of the improbable / impossible happening and thats why (even against your impressive form and great goalscorers and miserly defence) we dare to dream.

Enjoy the moment Clarets, the game has not started yet.
for 'Uncle Jack's support' read Millions upon millions of his hard earned money that a succession of managers spunked away.
Premier League Champions, that really does stick in your craw doesn't it?

The fact that our name will always be on that trophy, you won't ever get a sniff.

League Cup winners as well.

For a relatively small club that is a really significant achievement in this day and age, any doubt? Look at the rest of the names on that trophy.

Not exactly "spunked away" as you so delicately put it, the last 20 years or so have been worth every penny, and for me that includes ups and downs.

Remind me what you have won in recent years?

But the Rovers fans have always `dared to dream` which is why with Uncle Jacks support we were able to climb out of one division and soar to the highest pinnacle of the English game, and win the Premiership title. Since then many much bigger clubs have spent much more, and tried more often and yet never succeeded. Thats why there is always a chance of the improbable / impossible happening and thats why (even against your impressive form and great goalscorers and miserly defence) we dare to dream. Enjoy the moment Clarets, the game has not started yet.[/p][/quote]for 'Uncle Jack's support' read Millions upon millions of his hard earned money that a succession of managers spunked away.[/p][/quote]Premier League Champions, that really does stick in your craw doesn't it? The fact that our name will always be on that trophy, you won't ever get a sniff. League Cup winners as well. For a relatively small club that is a really significant achievement in this day and age, any doubt? Look at the rest of the names on that trophy. Not exactly "spunked away" as you so delicately put it, the last 20 years or so have been worth every penny, and for me that includes ups and downs. Remind me what you have won in recent years? owd nick

How strange, you said the EXACT same thing prior to our game with Nottingham Forest.. we won 3-1. You then said the EXACT same thing prior to our game with Derby.. we won 2-0.

You also predicted a win for Blackburn at Bolton... you got spanked 4-0.

Here's a few facts for you to mull over.....

Burnley FC are 2nd in the league.
Burnley FC are 5 points clear of 3rd place.
Burnley FC are 20 points clear of you morons.

Look up!
Where have you been hiding for the past 35 years??

A few facts for you to mull over.

We have built a large modern stadium
Have a 2nd to non youth academy/training facilities
We won the Premiership
Played in Europe in numerous seasons
Won the league cup
Attracted some of the best players in the world to play in the famous half's
and hammered you clowns on numerous occasions

Look up you say? Get a grip lad eh... you are so far behind us it's unreal. One decent season which will no doubt end a hilarious play off defeat and you think you are superior?? One step closer to the sun, but still in our shadow!!!
Played in Europe in numerous seasons? Twice? We've played in Europe that many times, and with slightly less embarrassing outcomes. So you've won the prem? It's only the top flight of English football, we've won that a couple of times as well. A "large" stadium? Take a look at Old Trafford, the Emirates, the Etihad and others, THEY are large stadia.
Typical Rovers arrogance.
Typical dingle ignorance. Next time you post on here, get your facts right because in typical dingle fashion your comments are complete garbage.
Please point out where I am wrong. Have you played in Europe more than twice (two campaigns that is, not two games), if you have then I will hold my hand up. When was the third time? Have we not won the championship of England twice? Did we not play in Europe? Would your stadium not fit in one corner of the above mentioned stadia?
Perhaps you could explain how my comments are "garbage"? My facts are usually right but I will admit when I am wrong. Answers on a postcard please.
By the way, what exactly do you mean by "on here"? Are you under the illusion that this is a Rovers article? It's joint article and therefore, by definition, is open to comments from all. Or am I wrong on that as well?
Yes, we have played in Europe more than twice, so I'll accept your apology and assume you'll hold your hands up.

As for the stadium, my fellow Rovers fan was pointing out we have a modern large stadium and at no point did he compare it to Old Trafford or the Emirates but was merely pointing out that, compared to Burnleys, Blackburns ground is both larger and more modern.

Once again you've assumed we're arrogant but it's not arrogance, just plain facts and that's what seems to stick in your throats.

By the way ''on here'' means exactly that. You have posted on here, have you not? At no point did I mention this was a Rovers article or that it isn't open to comments from all, I simply made a remark that highlighted your ignorance.

By the way, the postcard gag would've been quite funny 20 years ago but as with your ground is out of date and from another era.

So, you'd be right in questioning whether you're wrong on that aswell......

Big kisses xx
I can only recall 2 seasons of European football at Ewood, when was the other season/seasons?
The "on here" argument was probably wrong on my part due to the large numbers of other Rovers laying claim to this article, sorry.
From memory we qualified through winning the League Cup win, finishing 6th in the Legaue, finishing in the semis of the Cup when we got knocked out by Chelsea at Old Trafford in 2007, oh and had a Inter Toto qualification into the UEFA Cup. Admittedly though our European pedigree is nothing to shout about!

This 'Derby' involves 2 founder members of the football league going toe to toe almost 130 years on. many trophies between us etc etc. That my friend is what I call football history.
I tried replying earlier but my stupid new bloody computer running on Windows 8 suddenly decided to update to Windows 8.1. grrrrrrrrrr.

I hate Windows 8 even more than I hate the red scum from Manchester and that is saying something, 8.1 is probably going to be as bloody annoying as Burnley this season....LOL.

I agree, a sensible post from a sensible Burnley fan, I really hope we can have some decent banter on Sunday evening whatever the result because that is what it should all be about, two of the oldest clubs in the country slogging it out and may the best team on the day take the spoils and give their fans the bragging rights for however long it takes until the next game.

History, I love it.

The first official game between these great old rivals was in 1888 at Turf Moor with Rovers running out 7-1 winners on the day but preceding that there were several "friendlies" (LOL) dubbed as the Cotton Town Derby's which I think Burnley had the upper hand in.

The interesting things are the terminology and the lack of rules, scoring goals by "scrimmaging", sounds like a ruck in Rugby to me, the fact that there were no rule to the number of players on a side and the sad fact that at least one goalscorer was recorded as an "unknown".

Those must have been the days, pure magic, to be in at the beginning with no concept whatsoever as to where it might lead, amazing.

Not sure if this game at Turf Moor was actually the first ever officially recorded derby, I think that falls to one of the Sheffield teams, possibly Wednesday v Halam, but I suspect that would more likely be like Rovers or Burnley playing Stanley, not a real game (sorry Stanley fans).

Personally I think we should get together and claim the right to be recognised, after all we were both founder members of the FA, who the **** were Halam?

What are you apologising for? I have no problem with you doing so well in the last 9 league games between us. Well done. I'm very pleased for you. You use the word "just" when relating that its a fact. Don't undersell it. And if it ends on Saturday then live with it.

A word of advice; you've got 46 points. You need 52 to 54 to be free of relegation. You'd be better to stop thinking about the past. Look to the future - make sure that you support them well to help ensure that you don't go down.

How strange, you said the EXACT same thing prior to our game with Nottingham Forest.. we won 3-1. You then said the EXACT same thing prior to our game with Derby.. we won 2-0.

You also predicted a win for Blackburn at Bolton... you got spanked 4-0.

Here's a few facts for you to mull over.....

Burnley FC are 2nd in the league.
Burnley FC are 5 points clear of 3rd place.
Burnley FC are 20 points clear of you morons.

Look up!
Where have you been hiding for the past 35 years??

A few facts for you to mull over.

We have built a large modern stadium
Have a 2nd to non youth academy/training facilities
We won the Premiership
Played in Europe in numerous seasons
Won the league cup
Attracted some of the best players in the world to play in the famous half's
and hammered you clowns on numerous occasions

Look up you say? Get a grip lad eh... you are so far behind us it's unreal. One decent season which will no doubt end a hilarious play off defeat and you think you are superior?? One step closer to the sun, but still in our shadow!!!
Played in Europe in numerous seasons? Twice? We've played in Europe that many times, and with slightly less embarrassing outcomes. So you've won the prem? It's only the top flight of English football, we've won that a couple of times as well. A "large" stadium? Take a look at Old Trafford, the Emirates, the Etihad and others, THEY are large stadia.
Typical Rovers arrogance.
Typical dingle ignorance. Next time you post on here, get your facts right because in typical dingle fashion your comments are complete garbage.
Please point out where I am wrong. Have you played in Europe more than twice (two campaigns that is, not two games), if you have then I will hold my hand up. When was the third time? Have we not won the championship of England twice? Did we not play in Europe? Would your stadium not fit in one corner of the above mentioned stadia?
Perhaps you could explain how my comments are "garbage"? My facts are usually right but I will admit when I am wrong. Answers on a postcard please.
By the way, what exactly do you mean by "on here"? Are you under the illusion that this is a Rovers article? It's joint article and therefore, by definition, is open to comments from all. Or am I wrong on that as well?
Yes, we have played in Europe more than twice, so I'll accept your apology and assume you'll hold your hands up.

As for the stadium, my fellow Rovers fan was pointing out we have a modern large stadium and at no point did he compare it to Old Trafford or the Emirates but was merely pointing out that, compared to Burnleys, Blackburns ground is both larger and more modern.

Once again you've assumed we're arrogant but it's not arrogance, just plain facts and that's what seems to stick in your throats.

By the way ''on here'' means exactly that. You have posted on here, have you not? At no point did I mention this was a Rovers article or that it isn't open to comments from all, I simply made a remark that highlighted your ignorance.

By the way, the postcard gag would've been quite funny 20 years ago but as with your ground is out of date and from another era.

So, you'd be right in questioning whether you're wrong on that aswell......

Big kisses xx
I can only recall 2 seasons of European football at Ewood, when was the other season/seasons?
The "on here" argument was probably wrong on my part due to the large numbers of other Rovers laying claim to this article, sorry.
From memory we qualified through winning the League Cup win, finishing 6th in the Legaue, finishing in the semis of the Cup when we got knocked out by Chelsea at Old Trafford in 2007, oh and had a Inter Toto qualification into the UEFA Cup. Admittedly though our European pedigree is nothing to shout about!
I must admit later on I remembered the league cup win and the qualification for that. Hands up - I was wrong.
Still not gonna make a prediction for Sunday. Just hope Rhodes goal drought goes on and David Dunne gets drunk the night before and is unfit to play. God he hates us. Saw him on late kick off on Monday and he had a face like thunder when Tony "Mr Claret" Livesey dared to take the mick.
Should be all good fun. Just wish we didn't need the overkill policing.

Same principal. You have to play someone to be unbeaten by them and it's 9 league games and 2 FA Cup ties (bad enough but it's not 20/30/35 games is it?
Incidentally you haven't beaten us in 3 (4 on Sunday?).

And yet you still spend your entire life on a rovers page?! Baffling.
You obviously didn't read the headline did you? This is NOT a Rovers page, unless you lay claim to the whole of the Lancashire Telegraph. Read the headline again, carefully, and then come on here and tell me that I'm wrong. It's actually, in case you can't be bothered, yet again, to read the headline, a JOINT page, headed by both reporters.
