I don't understand why it was rearranged in the first place to a date when it may have to be postponed again. Also it might have been a good move to try to bring the Yeovil game forward to last Saturday and ease the Easter fixtures

Exactly, shows how little respect football has for its fans, don't these clubs realise that not everyone works 9 to 5 and ives in the town, some of us have to plan work schedules and make travel plans to get there, I knew as I was rescheduling things it was a risk, but the only what to get cheap tickets and swap shifts is to do it well in advance!

Agree, I work shifts and have to rely on my work colleagues to swap with me.
I was ok for next Tuesday but knowing my luck they will probably arrange it now when I am working. it's sods law!!

I whole-heartedly agree. As I live along the South Coast and travel from London as I work in the capital, I have booked all my hotel stays in Blackburn until the end of the season due to the special deals if booked well in advance.

Due to the money being non-refundable for my stays, I have had to pay £5.00 each time for amending a booking, etc. This time, I have decided to wait for the results of Brighton's game last night and not booked anything. It is fortunate that whilst I have a 'normal' office job, I have flexible working hours and get to work additional hours as and when there is work but it is a nuisance having to reschedule things around and reassuring your colleagues that you are not messing them around. A blessing that both of my colleagues are football supporters, so they understand better lol

Looking at the Rovers' forthcoming fixtures, I believe that the new date for the Brighton game will be either Tuesday, 4th or Wednesday, 5th March.

Hardcore fans, I like it. I only travel 70 miles on a match day but it annoys me that so called supporters who live within a couple of miles can't be bothered to turn up because we got relegated. Bit off the subject, sorry

Fair comment and good on you guys who really do put the effort in to attend.

I only live a few miles away in Darwen so it's easy for me but apart from getting married (the fixtures came out after we had arranged the date) and holidays the only games I have ever missed at Ewood have been due to work.

Don't have a problem now as I am retired.

One thing you have to remember is the club doesn't always have a say as to when fixtures can be played these days, policing issues, can both clubs fit it in; etc 'etc.

Sorry Owd Nick but arranging to get married during the football season is just unforgivable. Ha!
