BLACKBURN Rovers did not comment last night on reports that top scorer Jordan Rhodes is set to sign a new long-term contract with the club.

Talks over a new deal for the prolific striker, however, have taken place.

Rhodes has scored 16 goals this season and 44 in 82 appearances for Rovers since his club record £8m move from Huddersfield Town in August 2012.

But the 24-year-old, who has three years remaining on his current contract, has not scored in any of his last nine games going into Sunday’s visit of Burnley to Ewood Park.

MORE TOP STORIES:

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has a number of injury concerns ahead of the East Lancashire derby.

Centre-back Matt Kilgallon, who came off in Saturday’s defeat at Bolton Wanderers, underwent medical assessment yesterday.

He has sustained a groin strain and will be treated daily in a bid to get him fit for the Clarets clash.

Forget Rhodes for now, he's in contract, get the young Man U lad and tell him he will get games, which he should with only 2 current CB's to choose from!!

If he signs a long term deal it will demonstrate one of two things, if not both.

1. He is frightened to make the step up to Premiership football.

2. He has absolutely no ambition whatsoever and he is happy to let his career rot.

This can't be true. "Expert Look Up Blackburn" says he is being sold last summer., this January, next year, no no can't be true, can it?

6. He will earn more money

7. He will win a buyout clause that triggers a sale above a certain figure (so he won't necessarily be tied in long term)

Whilst I do enjoy a good bit of banter with the Dingles I do have to say that being a Rovers fan I am apprehensive about the game on Sunday due to the fact that we have the injuries we do in defence. However, don't take this as me getting excuses ready because I am not. This is definitely Burnley's best chance of finally beating us but even if they do and the unspeakable happens can the Dingles honestly say they will go on a create a 35 year unbeaten record against us? I don't think so. The lack of resources they have sets there position to be where it is for years to come even if they do go up statistically the chances of them staying up are slim to none. At the moment they are overachieving and they know it. There is more pressure on them to get promoted than us because its there creeping in the back of their mind that if they don't Ings, Vokes and the others who are having a very good season (and they are by the way) won't be with them next season. Burnley have to sell as they always have done. Roll on Sunday... because as long as Rovers resist defeat its a loss to the Dingles and that mentally could be very damaging to Burnley. The pressure is all on them.

Really? The pressure is on Burnley? Don't make me laugh.

It is just another game on our march to promotion, you are just one of 13 clubs that we look to get something against between now and the end of the season - the pressure is firmly on Blackburn to give their fans something to shout in your only meaningful game left of the season.

Honestly, I would probably take a point, because regardless of your 34 year rubbish, winning our home games and drawing our away games would definitely see us promoted.

Wouldn't expect Rovers to say anything until he puts pen to paper, the simple fact that a new contract is being discussed with still 3 years to go on his current one shows that we are looking at the longer term.

A new contract is good for both Rhodes and Rovers, it gives both parties the security of up to 5 years more and guarantees a decent payday for both if a bigger club does come in and make an offer that neither can refuse.

And for the currently crowing Burnley fans I see that Ings is still stalling on his contract which I believe has a little more than 12 months to run.

I see Financial Fair Play means nothing to Blackburn.

When you are forced to undergo a transfer embargo in January 2015 you will HAVE to sell you high earners to comply - Jordan Rhodes will come into this bracket.

Speaking of rotting careers how long do you think your 3 prize assets & manager will be hanging around pal playing in front of 11,000 in a 3rd world ground? Once they're offered 10 times what they're earning, which is not unrealistic, they'll be out the door quicker than Owen Coyle. You know it aswell.

Regards Sunday, If you can't muster a win against us now considering your massively over achieving team and our injury ravaged squad, you never will.

Seriously?

You will take a point against a side who may have at the best only around 50% of their squad fit and available?

A side that fell apart on Saturday against one of the worst teams in the league?

A side that you and the rest of your moronic mates have been deriding all season, crowing how good you are because you have had one good season in 10?

You will take a point? Forgive me for laughing. Just be honest for once.

Fate is a fickle mistress and if she points her finger at your opponents for the first time this season you are going to feel the pain, and you know it.

I don't really care what team we can get out on the pitch on Sunday, what I care about is that everyone in Blue and White does everything they can to win that game, and the next, and the next, irrespective of the result and our league position.

I EXPECT 3 points on Sunday, I won't ever settle for one until the final whistle blows.

To be honest the 35 year thing is a joke, you have played us what eleven times in this run, and didn't play us for 29-30 of these years. More to the point you have managed to scrape three points off us undeservedly since your hilarious relegation from the Top Table when we have dominated you in these games - this will change Sunday. I think we will be simply too strong for mid-table strugglers like yourself.

At least we have players that are in demand from other clubs - Ings, Vokes, Trippier etc etc, not a set of unwanted Premier League rejects like Gestede, Evans et al.

As for us replicating the eleven game unbeaten run, when we win on Sunday it will be up to four already.

Isn't there talk that he's already on around 40k a week? He hasn't exactly earned a pay rise since he's forgot how to find the back of the net. Why can't GB focus more on how to stop the Championship's second placed team on Sunday rather than keep Rhodes happy? Pathetic.

Whilst I agree that penning a longer deal increases the security and price if we sell him - fine.

However (and I know that you for 1 Nick don't believe it) but we are going to have a transfer embargo imposed on us on 1st Jan 2015 - how does increasing one of your players salaries from £35,000 per WEEK ! to MORE help us REDUCE our costs and help us ASAP to come within our FFP limits (unless we sell him this summer).

If we keep him & increase our losses then we WILL annoy the FL, the rest of the FL members & UEFA (all of whom are determined to introduce FFP) and will endure a transfer embargo that could, in time destroy the club.

Rovers HAVE to seriously start REDUCING their losses, firstly because they are UNSUSTAINABLE and secondly because we will be forced into a humiliating transfer embargo that, in time will have devastating results on BRFC (ie reduction in revenues and ultimately, relegation).

Just for once I hope that your mates, the Venkys, know what they are doing (haha) because the medium & long-term future and stability of BRFC is at stake here.

I know you (Nick) and others on here don't accept this following statement but it is TRUE - IT IS CRAZY and UNSUSTAINABLE for BFRC to continue to keep trying to live way beyond our income (in summer, when we lose another £8m in TV revenues) our outgoings will be roughly 100% MORE than our incomes - this is UTTER LUNACY!!!!

Really? The pressure is on Burnley? Don't make me laugh.

It is just another game on our march to promotion, you are just one of 13 clubs that we look to get something against between now and the end of the season - the pressure is firmly on Blackburn to give their fans something to shout in your only meaningful game left of the season.

Honestly, I would probably take a point, because regardless of your 34 year rubbish, winning our home games and drawing our away games would definitely see us promoted.
Nice try Charlie but to suggest there'e no pressure on Burnley is absolutely hilarious. It's all you've craved for years.
As I've said on here before, we've been there, seen it, done it & got the T- shirt. You've done nothing & for 35 years, which incidentally is far from rubbish, it's a true marker as to the gulf in class and if that 35 years record was the other way round we'd never hear the end of it, just as we never hear the end of this little purple patch you're having. Personally, I'd take a point right now because as things stand with form & squads you clearly have the upper hand. Lets see if your players can handle the pressure to win a derby because the desperation of you lot has obviously got to them in past 11 fixtures.

I see Financial Fair Play means nothing to Blackburn.

When you are forced to undergo a transfer embargo in January 2015 you will HAVE to sell you high earners to comply - Jordan Rhodes will come into this bracket.
yawn, boring.
Great response, putting your fingers in your ears and shouting 'LA LA LA I AM NOT LISTENING' unfortunately will not make this situation go away - how can Blackburn be thinking of offering more money to your highest earner in the current financial climate?

Mis-management of the highest order and ultimately you will pay for it.

Not bothered either way. The way he is playing at the moment he wouldn't be missed if he wasn't in the team. I think we put too much focus on Rhodes at the detriment of the team. If he wasn't there Gestede could lead the line to much better effect than him. We keep sticking Rhodes up font to lead the line just because it is Rhodes and not whether he is effective or not.

Well said. We need 5 wins and 4 draws from our last 13 games to achieve automatic promotion. This is the aim.

A win against the filth would certainly be welcome but as long as we keep picking up points we'll achieve the dream end to the season and be looking down on those shoeless retards from the Premier League. What could be better than that?

I agree with the no-dad however when he says this our best chance to beat them, we have been immense lately and given their weak squad and poor form we should be looking to take the 3 points to put the icing on the cake. A win at Ewood and I think we can go on and secure promotion.

This is the last meaningful game of their season and so ALL the pressure is on Blackburn to cling onto the 34 year comedy record that is slipping from them as we count down to the big game. I think most of them are already resigned to defeat and this feeling will permeate Ewood prior to kick-off and unsettle the players. an early Burnley goal and their fickle panicking supporters will turn on their team as usual and we will capitalise.

Trust in Sean Dyche, he knows how to approach this game, and will be looking to write his name into Burnley history by giving us the ultimate end to the season.

As for the article.... this is simply a nonsense story leaked by the club in a desperate attempt to build up a bit of confidence before Sunday. They have tried this stunt before. Rhodes has zero goals in NINE games and is clearly wanting out in the summer. His value is dropping by the week, he might only get this one chance if a Premier League club comes in for him and you can bet your boots he'll not be sticking around for a relegation battle next season when Blackburn Rovers' financial woe's come to the fore.

Desperate, desperate Blackburn Rovers.

To be honest the 35 year thing is a joke, you have played us what eleven times in this run, and didn't play us for 29-30 of these years. More to the point you have managed to scrape three points off us undeservedly since your hilarious relegation from the Top Table when we have dominated you in these games - this will change Sunday. I think we will be simply too strong for mid-table strugglers like yourself.

At least we have players that are in demand from other clubs - Ings, Vokes, Trippier etc etc, not a set of unwanted Premier League rejects like Gestede, Evans et al.

As for us replicating the eleven game unbeaten run, when we win on Sunday it will be up to four already.

Oh dear, do you have learning difficulties?

When we win on Sunday it will be up to four GAMES unbeaten against you, none of this ridiculous amount of non-playing years that you goons keep babbling on about.

Do try and keep up.

Oh and as for us being nervous? Are you serious? We have just blown away two of the division's in form sides to put ourselves five points clear of Derby in second and you think we are nervous about facing you?

I don't think so. The lack of resources they have sets there position to be where it is for years to come even if they do go up statistically the chances of them staying up are slim to none. At the moment they are overachieving and they know it. There is more pressure on them to get promoted than us because its there creeping in the back of their mind that if they don't Ings, Vokes and the others who are having a very good season (and they are by the way) won't be with them next season. Burnley have to sell as they always have done. Roll on Sunday... because as long as Rovers resist defeat its a loss to the Dingles and that mentally could be very damaging to Burnley. The pressure is all on them.[/p][/quote]Really? The pressure is on Burnley? Don't make me laugh. It is just another game on our march to promotion, you are just one of 13 clubs that we look to get something against between now and the end of the season - the pressure is firmly on Blackburn to give their fans something to shout in your only meaningful game left of the season. Honestly, I would probably take a point, because regardless of your 34 year rubbish, winning our home games and drawing our away games would definitely see us promoted.[/p][/quote]Well that was fast.... jumped right in there feet first didn't we? Slight nerve touched have we? It is true the pressure is all on Burnley we have a monkey on our back with this 35 year unbeaten stretch and if it continues mentally that will be unnerving to you. Unable to beat your neighbours when they have half a team? I noticed you missed my other points in you hastiness... what do you feel about ever replicating the 35 year unbeaten run? How do you feel about points made that you are overachieving and if you don't make promotion your star players will leave in summer? Do tell please....[/p][/quote]To be honest the 35 year thing is a joke, you have played us what eleven times in this run, and didn't play us for 29-30 of these years. More to the point you have managed to scrape three points off us undeservedly since your hilarious relegation from the Top Table when we have dominated you in these games - this will change Sunday. I think we will be simply too strong for mid-table strugglers like yourself. At least we have players that are in demand from other clubs - Ings, Vokes, Trippier etc etc, not a set of unwanted Premier League rejects like Gestede, Evans et al. As for us replicating the eleven game unbeaten run, when we win on Sunday it will be up to four already.[/p][/quote]I do love our little chats... "champagne plus charlie" how you Dingles really do know how to describe your upper class selves so well. The fact of the matter is Blackburn Rovers fans will never go into a game against Burnley "happy to take a point" I actually couldnt believe what I read in your last comment and this proves how nervous you all must still be of us. Half a team, broken down by Bolton last week and still you want just a point? And if the 35 year unbeaten run is such a joke why do you begin by attempting to play it down by stating "35 year thing is a joke" and "didn't play us for 29-30 of these years" but then try to salvage your meaningless half hearted attempt at a debate by ending your comment with "when we win on Sunday it will be up to four already." This is like playing a very poor game of Where's Wally..... because my Dingle friend.... I see you and so does everyone reading....[/p][/quote]Oh dear, do you have learning difficulties? When we win on Sunday it will be up to four GAMES unbeaten against you, none of this ridiculous amount of non-playing years that you goons keep babbling on about. Do try and keep up.

Some people just love to have a moan don't they!

At the moment this hasn't been confirmed, but it does appear at the very least that discussions have been taking place with Rhodes about a new deal.

Rather than be very happy with this potential news, most people on here would prefer to complain and question the decision.

Burnley fans should be happy to, because if they are correct with their financial knowledge Rovers will be in administration and bankrupt very soon (I'm still waiting after two years).

Just to put this in perspective. Rhodes has scored more goals than anyone else in England's top four divisions over the last 3-4 years. He is one of the most sought after strikers outside the Premier League. Any other Championship club would welcome him with open arms. His goals have carried the club these last 18 months. Here we are attempting to tie him down to a longer deal and some people aren't happy! Presumably the preferred option would be to sell him on asap and then you could all moan at Venkys for selling our best players?

I think Rovers have made it clear over the last two transfer windows that he isn't for sale, so talk of giving him a new contract so we can get more money for him doesn't align with that. Perhaps the idea is that he is seen as an integral part of our short-medium term future and the club wants to make sure of that?

I've said it before, why should Rovers not be able to offer Rhodes a new deal because of some arbitrary rules that we didn't agree to? It's not made any difference to QPR or Forest. If Venky's want to spend their money on their club then that's their choice, nobody else's. Sticking two fingers up at these rules is the only way of making sure they won't be enforced. See Man City, Chelsea, PSG and Liverpool as role models. In the grand scheme of things a 5k-10k wage rise for Rhodes is nothing when you think of the money Best, Etuhu and Campbell are on, none of whom have long term futures at the club. Maybe the money will be coming out of savings made on dross like that.

Look whether you agree to the FPP or not it doesn't matter, you are a member of the Football League and THEY have voted for this, so it IS going to happen and no amount of head shaking or protesting is going to stop this - it has been voted in Europe-wide.

If you don't like it then you and Leicester and QPR can run along with your massive debts and form your own mini-league. The fact is this is definitely happening and when you have extracted your head from your arse you will realise that you need to actually be saving money and reducing your wage bill instead of increasing it.

"Sticking two fingers up at these rules is the only way of making sure they won't be enforced..."

Typical Blackburn Rovers arrogance once again. Thinking that the rules that govern all are not applicable to your football club. What a moron you are.

FFP has been introduced to reduce the levels of losses being incurred at football clubs and, over time, to establish a league of financially self-sustaining professional football clubs.

These rules are already agreed by all clubs and in place with punishments to non-compliant Championship clubs to be handed out in April/May 2014.

You seem to persist with this misguided notion that you can STILL buy your way out of trouble, its astounding arrogance, it really is. You clearly understand nothing of the financial tsunami about to engulf your tin-pot football club next season.

To tie Rhodes down to a BIGGER contract when you need to REDUCE your outgoings would be a financial disaster. You could be looking at a place in League One at the start of 2015 while YOUR CLUB is tied to a contract that pays a player say £45,000 a week (or £12.8million over 5 and a half years)!??

FYI the MAXIMUM loss that a Championship club can make in 2013/14 is £8million (if the owners are willing to inject £5 million equity), however these figures are reduced in future years, I believe in 2015/16 the maximum permitted loss is just £2million.

The figures are therefore not simply unsustainable, they are ridiculous, and to act in this manner your club would be putting its entire future at risk. Administration will mean relegation and the end as we know it of "once proud" Blackburn Rovers.

And you are questioning why some of your fans would disagree with the club making this move?

Absolute and utter deluded no-dad nonsense.

I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years....

What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time...

And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why....

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.

But thats the whole point isn't it??

this team has relied far too heavily on him just look at our top scorers, the gulf between him and the the rest is as wide as a burnley mums gash and equally as frightening when looking straight at it.

GB sets up the team , and as much as i respect the guy his tactics have been very poor at times and i i really believe Gary may have brought us as far as he currently can with his limited experience.his decisions smack of a man with little confidence in his abilities and this translates to negative tactics.

Also i know this aint gonna go down well but fair play to Burnley, they've played some cracking football this season and their team spirit emanates. Just wish it was us.......

I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years....

What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time...

And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why....

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
So from 130 years of both clubs being in existence you've managed to find the only 17 year period that Burnley have a decent record against Blackburn.

How about the 80 years before your selective vision and the 35 since?

Wouldn't expect Rovers to say anything until he puts pen to paper, the simple fact that a new contract is being discussed with still 3 years to go on his current one shows that we are looking at the longer term.

A new contract is good for both Rhodes and Rovers, it gives both parties the security of up to 5 years more and guarantees a decent payday for both if a bigger club does come in and make an offer that neither can refuse.

And for the currently crowing Burnley fans I see that Ings is still stalling on his contract which I believe has a little more than 12 months to run.
Whilst I agree that penning a longer deal increases the security and price if we sell him - fine.

However (and I know that you for 1 Nick don't believe it) but we are going to have a transfer embargo imposed on us on 1st Jan 2015 - how does increasing one of your players salaries from £35,000 per WEEK ! to MORE help us REDUCE our costs and help us ASAP to come within our FFP limits (unless we sell him this summer).

If we keep him & increase our losses then we WILL annoy the FL, the rest of the FL members & UEFA (all of whom are determined to introduce FFP) and will endure a transfer embargo that could, in time destroy the club.

Rovers HAVE to seriously start REDUCING their losses, firstly because they are UNSUSTAINABLE and secondly because we will be forced into a humiliating transfer embargo that, in time will have devastating results on BRFC (ie reduction in revenues and ultimately, relegation).

Just for once I hope that your mates, the Venkys, know what they are doing (haha) because the medium & long-term future and stability of BRFC is at stake here.

I know you (Nick) and others on here don't accept this following statement but it is TRUE - IT IS CRAZY and UNSUSTAINABLE for BFRC to continue to keep trying to live way beyond our income (in summer, when we lose another £8m in TV revenues) our outgoings will be roughly 100% MORE than our incomes - this is UTTER LUNACY!!!!
That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life.

Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal.

Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive?

It's all about timing.

Some of you Dingles can't subtract. 2014 - 1979 = 35 years not 34.

35 years is a long time isn't it. In fact it's just over a quarter of of our history and well over a quarter of yours. Even if it ends on Sunday, it is unlikely to be repeated by Burnley. And you know what, it might just carry on!

Incidentally, did you know that Burnley used to be called Burnley Rovers?

Seems like you've been trying to emulate us since you began and judging by the desperate halfwits who devote their lives to the Rovers message boards, it is carrying on to this day.

10 wins in 14 consecutive league games. Can you claim the same incredible record against Burnley? No you can't.

Burnley: 10 wins and 2 draws in 14 CONSECUTIVE LEAGUE GAMES over a period of 17 years
OR
Blackburn: 7 wins and 4 draws in 34 years (INCLUDING CUP GAMES!)

Which is the better record?

You have no argument. Wind your neck in fool.

Thought you didn't like to live in the past?

Who's won more trophies?
Who's won more derbies?
Who's got the record attendance?
Who's got the highest win?
Who's got more history?

You were even called Burnley Rovers and played in blue and white.

And that list of results you cling onto as another example of your desperation was, as I've pointed out several times, long before you'd even hatched keyboard hero....

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
So from 130 years of both clubs being in existence you've managed to find the only 17 year period that Burnley have a decent record against Blackburn.

How about the 80 years before your selective vision and the 35 since?
Didn't exist in Dingland Jack. They are are breed of oddballs who specialise in selective memory and myths.

As they say, the truth hurts and these tobacco chewin hunched backed apes can't handle the truth.

Apparently 35 years means nothing yet a couple of months above us means everything - only in that no-mans land between Lancashire and Yorkshire.

A new contract is good for both Rhodes and Rovers, it gives both parties the security of up to 5 years more and guarantees a decent payday for both if a bigger club does come in and make an offer that neither can refuse.

And for the currently crowing Burnley fans I see that Ings is still stalling on his contract which I believe has a little more than 12 months to run.
Whilst I agree that penning a longer deal increases the security and price if we sell him - fine.

However (and I know that you for 1 Nick don't believe it) but we are going to have a transfer embargo imposed on us on 1st Jan 2015 - how does increasing one of your players salaries from £35,000 per WEEK ! to MORE help us REDUCE our costs and help us ASAP to come within our FFP limits (unless we sell him this summer).

If we keep him & increase our losses then we WILL annoy the FL, the rest of the FL members & UEFA (all of whom are determined to introduce FFP) and will endure a transfer embargo that could, in time destroy the club.

Rovers HAVE to seriously start REDUCING their losses, firstly because they are UNSUSTAINABLE and secondly because we will be forced into a humiliating transfer embargo that, in time will have devastating results on BRFC (ie reduction in revenues and ultimately, relegation).

Just for once I hope that your mates, the Venkys, know what they are doing (haha) because the medium & long-term future and stability of BRFC is at stake here.

I know you (Nick) and others on here don't accept this following statement but it is TRUE - IT IS CRAZY and UNSUSTAINABLE for BFRC to continue to keep trying to live way beyond our income (in summer, when we lose another £8m in TV revenues) our outgoings will be roughly 100% MORE than our incomes - this is UTTER LUNACY!!!!
That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life.

Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal.

Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive?

It's all about timing.
Ha ha ha ha ha - OK then, good luck with that. You are simply living in denial and that's fine, I suppose as Blackburn fans you have to believe that things will get better, and that those nasty guys who have introduced these FPP rules are just going to disappear and not be bothered by over-spending clubs like yourselves deliberately flaunting the rules.

SImple facts - It has been voted in by the Football League and therefore WILL happen, you have to live withing your means and not rack up debts - it has been introduced for the benefit of football as a whole.

You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on? No, they will in all likleyhood sue the football League themselves, so which do you think the FL would prefer, two or three clubs challenging them or 70 clubs?

Really? The pressure is on Burnley? Don't make me laugh.

It is just another game on our march to promotion, you are just one of 13 clubs that we look to get something against between now and the end of the season - the pressure is firmly on Blackburn to give their fans something to shout in your only meaningful game left of the season.

Honestly, I would probably take a point, because regardless of your 34 year rubbish, winning our home games and drawing our away games would definitely see us promoted.
Well said. We need 5 wins and 4 draws from our last 13 games to achieve automatic promotion. This is the aim.

A win against the filth would certainly be welcome but as long as we keep picking up points we'll achieve the dream end to the season and be looking down on those shoeless retards from the Premier League. What could be better than that?

I agree with the no-dad however when he says this our best chance to beat them, we have been immense lately and given their weak squad and poor form we should be looking to take the 3 points to put the icing on the cake. A win at Ewood and I think we can go on and secure promotion.

This is the last meaningful game of their season and so ALL the pressure is on Blackburn to cling onto the 34 year comedy record that is slipping from them as we count down to the big game. I think most of them are already resigned to defeat and this feeling will permeate Ewood prior to kick-off and unsettle the players. an early Burnley goal and their fickle panicking supporters will turn on their team as usual and we will capitalise.

Trust in Sean Dyche, he knows how to approach this game, and will be looking to write his name into Burnley history by giving us the ultimate end to the season.

As for the article.... this is simply a nonsense story leaked by the club in a desperate attempt to build up a bit of confidence before Sunday. They have tried this stunt before. Rhodes has zero goals in NINE games and is clearly wanting out in the summer. His value is dropping by the week, he might only get this one chance if a Premier League club comes in for him and you can bet your boots he'll not be sticking around for a relegation battle next season when Blackburn Rovers' financial woe's come to the fore.

Desperate, desperate Blackburn Rovers.
A win against the Filth is that the best intelligent description your brain can come up with

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
So from 130 years of both clubs being in existence you've managed to find the only 17 year period that Burnley have a decent record against Blackburn.

How about the 80 years before your selective vision and the 35 since?
Its all information that's freely available on the internet. Look it up for yourself when they next let you have a go on the Shadsworth community centre PC.

Prior to our domination of Rovers things were more or less equal, as they always have been barring our incredible, never to be equalled run of 10 league wins in 14 games, and of course that short blip when you completely distorted the rivalry by benefiting from a £100million+ cash advantage.

Nothing selective about it Mungo, check it out for yourself.

The real worry for you clowns is that should we beat you then the record switches in our favour and given that we are now 4 years unbeaten since your hilarious relegation, and the likelihood that we'll be leaving you behind in terms of league standing with with promotion to the premier league, and given that we now have the manager, board and the infrastructure in place to maintain that position, and given that you are facing imminent financial meltdown and a pending transfer embargo your already weak squad will be further decimated next season resulting in a likely drop into League One... so in summary it could well be that following our win on Sunday we might not meet you again for many, many years.

You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on? No, they will in all likleyhood sue the football League themselves, so which do you think the FL would prefer, two or three clubs challenging them or 70 clubs?
And what's your point Charlie? Why such an interest in the financial goings on at Rovers? Would like us to fold and go out of the league? Is that what this is all about? Are you all so riddled in envy and hate that you'd wish that on another club? The scaremongering tactic doesn't work pal. You need to concentrate on your own club who will sell your prize assets without a second thought, not to mention including your excellent manager, who's names being banded about left right and centre.

Jacko - FFP IS going to happen.

You are trying to argue that black is white here - it has been voted upon (17-3 in favour) and has the backing of the FL & UEFA - this total denial by you and a few other Rovers fans is frankly embarassing.

As for "we never voted for it" - no we didnt, we joined the FL after the vote had taken place. However we JOINED the FL knowing it had been voted in (its called DEMOCRACY) and if we objected to it then we should have refused to enter the FL - it is as simple as that. In life you have to abide by the MAYORITY even if you disagree - sticking your head in the sand and pretending it won't happen isnt "dealing with the situation".

Also "they can't force it upon us" - really ???? - what we can just sign players and ignore the fact that the FA refused to processed the transfer ? - come get real !!! - then we would be playing "unregistered players".

Also, you are right both QPR and Forest will have to cut their financial cloth as well - Forrest may well have a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 if they don't go up this season and QPR have another season to reduce their costs (as long as they don't go up) before they would face a transfer embargo, however, we are not concerned with those clubs, we are concerned with BRFC so they are irrelevant.

Everybody, fans, owners and directors at BRFC need to wake up and realise that we HAVE to get our financial house in order - a prolonged "transfer embargo" would be hugely damaging to our great football club.

I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years....

What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time...

And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why....

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
So from 130 years of both clubs being in existence you've managed to find the only 17 year period that Burnley have a decent record against Blackburn.

How about the 80 years before your selective vision and the 35 since?
Its all information that's freely available on the internet. Look it up for yourself when they next let you have a go on the Shadsworth community centre PC.

Prior to our domination of Rovers things were more or less equal, as they always have been barring our incredible, never to be equalled run of 10 league wins in 14 games, and of course that short blip when you completely distorted the rivalry by benefiting from a £100million+ cash advantage.

Nothing selective about it Mungo, check it out for yourself.

The real worry for you clowns is that should we beat you then the record switches in our favour and given that we are now 4 years unbeaten since your hilarious relegation, and the likelihood that we'll be leaving you behind in terms of league standing with with promotion to the premier league, and given that we now have the manager, board and the infrastructure in place to maintain that position, and given that you are facing imminent financial meltdown and a pending transfer embargo your already weak squad will be further decimated next season resulting in a likely drop into League One... so in summary it could well be that following our win on Sunday we might not meet you again for many, many years.
And that's the point mungo. Only you have an obsession so intense you desperately trawl the internet to convince yourself Burnley are actually important and yet seem to avoid wiki to confirm the truth. Here's the link to try and help you grasp reality.

Oh I do concentrate on my own club, and I see a financially viable side that is complying with the FPP, that is second in the table, five points clear of third with the best strike force, the meanest defence, a massive goal difference and that is 20 points ahead of their bitter rivals.

Oh, and we won't need to sell anyone when we get promoted.

35 years is a long time isn't it. In fact it's just over a quarter of of our history and well over a quarter of yours. Even if it ends on Sunday, it is unlikely to be repeated by Burnley. And you know what, it might just carry on!

Incidentally, did you know that Burnley used to be called Burnley Rovers?

Seems like you've been trying to emulate us since you began and judging by the desperate halfwits who devote their lives to the Rovers message boards, it is carrying on to this day.
9 March 2014 - 14 April 1979 = 34 years 11 months.

And given that we didn't play you for 29 of those years makes your 34 year thing seem a little bit pathetic, but as we all know ITS ALL YOU HAVE LEFT so you have to make a big deal out of it. I don't blame you, your club is a total embarrassment these days.

So you have a 5 year period of superiority over us, well done, but you also had a £100million+ cash advantage over us which makes your 34 comedy record the single most embarrassing claim ever heard.

Can you explain how 2 clubs on a previously equal standing can be compared if one of said clubs subsequently benefits from £100million?

You can't, which makes your 34 year thing a sham. Just like the rest of your recent history, you bought success, it's all fake, and the proof that its fake is your current league position now that all the money has gone.

You've been relegated from the Premier League TWICE!
You're TWENTY points behind Burnley in the Championship!

I would expect you clowns to be a little more humble given the state of your club at the present time. But then again come Sunday afternoon you'll be nowhere to be seen. Another 34 year big mouth coward who'll have to live with the knowledge that in 2014 Blackburn Rovers played their part in ensuring that Burnley achieved an incredible promotion to the Premier League.

In fact it's just over a quarter of of our history and well over a quarter of yours. Even if it ends on Sunday, it is unlikely to be repeated by Burnley. And you know what, it might just carry on! Incidentally, did you know that Burnley used to be called Burnley Rovers? Seems like you've been trying to emulate us since you began and judging by the desperate halfwits who devote their lives to the Rovers message boards, it is carrying on to this day.[/p][/quote]9 March 2014 - 14 April 1979 = 34 years 11 months. And given that we didn't play you for 29 of those years makes your 34 year thing seem a little bit pathetic, but as we all know ITS ALL YOU HAVE LEFT so you have to make a big deal out of it. I don't blame you, your club is a total embarrassment these days. So you have a 5 year period of superiority over us, well done, but you also had a £100million+ cash advantage over us which makes your 34 comedy record the single most embarrassing claim ever heard. Can you explain how 2 clubs on a previously equal standing can be compared if one of said clubs subsequently benefits from £100million? You can't, which makes your 34 year thing a sham. Just like the rest of your recent history, you bought success, it's all fake, and the proof that its fake is your current league position now that all the money has gone. You've been relegated from the Premier League TWICE! You're TWENTY points behind Burnley in the Championship! I would expect you clowns to be a little more humble given the state of your club at the present time. But then again come Sunday afternoon you'll be nowhere to be seen. Another 34 year big mouth coward who'll have to live with the knowledge that in 2014 Blackburn Rovers played their part in ensuring that Burnley achieved an incredible promotion to the Premier League. Its will be written in the history books and there forever... look up blackburn

Wouldn't expect Rovers to say anything until he puts pen to paper, the simple fact that a new contract is being discussed with still 3 years to go on his current one shows that we are looking at the longer term.

A new contract is good for both Rhodes and Rovers, it gives both parties the security of up to 5 years more and guarantees a decent payday for both if a bigger club does come in and make an offer that neither can refuse.

And for the currently crowing Burnley fans I see that Ings is still stalling on his contract which I believe has a little more than 12 months to run.
Whilst I agree that penning a longer deal increases the security and price if we sell him - fine.

However (and I know that you for 1 Nick don't believe it) but we are going to have a transfer embargo imposed on us on 1st Jan 2015 - how does increasing one of your players salaries from £35,000 per WEEK ! to MORE help us REDUCE our costs and help us ASAP to come within our FFP limits (unless we sell him this summer).

If we keep him & increase our losses then we WILL annoy the FL, the rest of the FL members & UEFA (all of whom are determined to introduce FFP) and will endure a transfer embargo that could, in time destroy the club.

Rovers HAVE to seriously start REDUCING their losses, firstly because they are UNSUSTAINABLE and secondly because we will be forced into a humiliating transfer embargo that, in time will have devastating results on BRFC (ie reduction in revenues and ultimately, relegation).

Just for once I hope that your mates, the Venkys, know what they are doing (haha) because the medium & long-term future and stability of BRFC is at stake here.

I know you (Nick) and others on here don't accept this following statement but it is TRUE - IT IS CRAZY and UNSUSTAINABLE for BFRC to continue to keep trying to live way beyond our income (in summer, when we lose another £8m in TV revenues) our outgoings will be roughly 100% MORE than our incomes - this is UTTER LUNACY!!!!
That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life.

Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal.

Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive?

It's all about timing.
Ha ha ha ha ha - OK then, good luck with that. You are simply living in denial and that's fine, I suppose as Blackburn fans you have to believe that things will get better, and that those nasty guys who have introduced these FPP rules are just going to disappear and not be bothered by over-spending clubs like yourselves deliberately flaunting the rules.

SImple facts - It has been voted in by the Football League and therefore WILL happen, you have to live withing your means and not rack up debts - it has been introduced for the benefit of football as a whole.

You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on? No, they will in all likleyhood sue the football League themselves, so which do you think the FL would prefer, two or three clubs challenging them or 70 clubs?
Nick - I don't like to side with a dingle but you are talking absolute RUBBISH and he is correct.

Also, you keep confusing the PL and the FL - the two are completely sepereate.

Yes the PL are bringing in a FFP and some clubs may find a way round and some may fall outside their remit - but they are clubs that play CL and carry some clout and may find a loophope.
Also, there is NO PL club (as far as I can find) that is trying to object or stop FFP being introduced through the UK or EU courts (only Rovers and 2 other FL clubs have seeked legal advice on the matter).

We are now a nobody in the football world and almost all football league clubs HAVE put their house in order and DO comply (not the 75% failure rate that you loosely bandy about) and they are detirmined to bring it in and implement this rule - and why shouldnt they. They voted it, they made the financial sacrafices and now they want to implement it and punish clubs that have failed to comply - even as Rovers fans I don't see how we can complain about that - we are part of a league where the vast majority (17-3) voted to introduce this rule.

We HAVE to start reduing our costs and reducing our debt - any other road is unsustainable and complely irresponsable.

You might not care if BRFC still exists in 5, 10 15 or 50 years but I do.

And what's your point Charlie? Why such an interest in the financial goings on at Rovers? Would like us to fold and go out of the league? Is that what this is all about? Are you all so riddled in envy and hate that you'd wish that on another club? The scaremongering tactic doesn't work pal. You need to concentrate on your own club who will sell your prize assets without a second thought, not to mention including your excellent manager, who's names being banded about left right and centre.

Make the most of it.......
Would I care if you went bust - nope, couldn't give a shiny **** if I am honest. I may have a little chuckle then I would carry on with my life.

Now am I correct in the fact that there were more than a few Blackburn fans that turned up at Turf Moor on 9th May 1987 to watch and gloat as Burnley were relegated from the Football league?

Oh I do concentrate on my own club, and I see a financially viable side that is complying with the FPP, that is second in the table, five points clear of third with the best strike force, the meanest defence, a massive goal difference and that is 20 points ahead of their bitter rivals.

Oh, and we won't need to sell anyone when we get promoted.
When we get promoted?

And I thought we were supposed to be arrogant.

I love how you're all so puddled you think your up in March.

If you'd seen your team smash Nottingham Forest off the park and then hammer Derby to go 5 points clear of 3rd place then perhaps you'd think the same thing. However given that your team has only managed to reach the heady heights of 8th place this season before dropping back towards mid-table you'll now know what it feels like.

We're as good if not better than any in this league and we're 5 points clear. It's not arrogance, its fact.

Some of you Dingles can't subtract. 2014 - 1979 = 35 years not 34.

35 years is a long time isn't it. In fact it's just over a quarter of of our history and well over a quarter of yours. Even if it ends on Sunday, it is unlikely to be repeated by Burnley. And you know what, it might just carry on!

Incidentally, did you know that Burnley used to be called Burnley Rovers?

Seems like you've been trying to emulate us since you began and judging by the desperate halfwits who devote their lives to the Rovers message boards, it is carrying on to this day.
9 March 2014 - 14 April 1979 = 34 years 11 months.

And given that we didn't play you for 29 of those years makes your 34 year thing seem a little bit pathetic, but as we all know ITS ALL YOU HAVE LEFT so you have to make a big deal out of it. I don't blame you, your club is a total embarrassment these days.

So you have a 5 year period of superiority over us, well done, but you also had a £100million+ cash advantage over us which makes your 34 comedy record the single most embarrassing claim ever heard.

Can you explain how 2 clubs on a previously equal standing can be compared if one of said clubs subsequently benefits from £100million?

You can't, which makes your 34 year thing a sham. Just like the rest of your recent history, you bought success, it's all fake, and the proof that its fake is your current league position now that all the money has gone.

You've been relegated from the Premier League TWICE!
You're TWENTY points behind Burnley in the Championship!

I would expect you clowns to be a little more humble given the state of your club at the present time. But then again come Sunday afternoon you'll be nowhere to be seen. Another 34 year big mouth coward who'll have to live with the knowledge that in 2014 Blackburn Rovers played their part in ensuring that Burnley achieved an incredible promotion to the Premier League.

Its will be written in the history books and there forever...
Jack Walkers money was irrelevant. Before he arrived as you'll be aware we were two divisions above you. Infact Burnley were flirting with the Conference four years before Walker took over. How do you explain that performance when we were 'on a level footing'.

Speaking of the history books, if by some miracle you are one of the freaks from Burnley admiring a real football ground on Sunday, try to have a look at the Jack Walker stand with a nice big shiny trophy inside it. THAT will be there forever.

A new contract is good for both Rhodes and Rovers, it gives both parties the security of up to 5 years more and guarantees a decent payday for both if a bigger club does come in and make an offer that neither can refuse.

And for the currently crowing Burnley fans I see that Ings is still stalling on his contract which I believe has a little more than 12 months to run.
Whilst I agree that penning a longer deal increases the security and price if we sell him - fine.

However (and I know that you for 1 Nick don't believe it) but we are going to have a transfer embargo imposed on us on 1st Jan 2015 - how does increasing one of your players salaries from £35,000 per WEEK ! to MORE help us REDUCE our costs and help us ASAP to come within our FFP limits (unless we sell him this summer).

If we keep him & increase our losses then we WILL annoy the FL, the rest of the FL members & UEFA (all of whom are determined to introduce FFP) and will endure a transfer embargo that could, in time destroy the club.

Rovers HAVE to seriously start REDUCING their losses, firstly because they are UNSUSTAINABLE and secondly because we will be forced into a humiliating transfer embargo that, in time will have devastating results on BRFC (ie reduction in revenues and ultimately, relegation).

Just for once I hope that your mates, the Venkys, know what they are doing (haha) because the medium & long-term future and stability of BRFC is at stake here.

I know you (Nick) and others on here don't accept this following statement but it is TRUE - IT IS CRAZY and UNSUSTAINABLE for BFRC to continue to keep trying to live way beyond our income (in summer, when we lose another £8m in TV revenues) our outgoings will be roughly 100% MORE than our incomes - this is UTTER LUNACY!!!!
That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life.

Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal.

Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive?

It's all about timing.
Ha ha ha ha ha - OK then, good luck with that. You are simply living in denial and that's fine, I suppose as Blackburn fans you have to believe that things will get better, and that those nasty guys who have introduced these FPP rules are just going to disappear and not be bothered by over-spending clubs like yourselves deliberately flaunting the rules.

SImple facts - It has been voted in by the Football League and therefore WILL happen, you have to live withing your means and not rack up debts - it has been introduced for the benefit of football as a whole.

You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on? No, they will in all likleyhood sue the football League themselves, so which do you think the FL would prefer, two or three clubs challenging them or 70 clubs?
And what's your point Charlie? Why such an interest in the financial goings on at Rovers? Would like us to fold and go out of the league? Is that what this is all about? Are you all so riddled in envy and hate that you'd wish that on another club? The scaremongering tactic doesn't work pal. You need to concentrate on your own club who will sell your prize assets without a second thought, not to mention including your excellent manager, who's names being banded about left right and centre.

Make the most of it.......
Would I care if you went bust - nope, couldn't give a shiny **** if I am honest. I may have a little chuckle then I would carry on with my life.

Now am I correct in the fact that there were more than a few Blackburn fans that turned up at Turf Moor on 9th May 1987 to watch and gloat as Burnley were relegated from the Football league?

Oh I do concentrate on my own club, and I see a financially viable side that is complying with the FPP, that is second in the table, five points clear of third with the best strike force, the meanest defence, a massive goal difference and that is 20 points ahead of their bitter rivals.

Oh, and we won't need to sell anyone when we get promoted.
When we get promoted?

And I thought we were supposed to be arrogant.

I love how you're all so puddled you think your up in March.

Only in Burnley.......
If you'd seen your team smash Nottingham Forest off the park and then hammer Derby to go 5 points clear of 3rd place then perhaps you'd think the same thing. However given that your team has only managed to reach the heady heights of 8th place this season before dropping back towards mid-table you'll now know what it feels like.

We're as good if not better than any in this league and we're 5 points clear. It's not arrogance, its fact.
I don't believe you actually saw Burnley beat Forest and Derby, apart from on the Football League show perhaps.

You're normally busy posting your boring essays on 1960's football results on the Rovers message boards on Saturday at 3pm.
BUT..you did not hammer Derby Baldric, you struggled at 1 0 and only got a second when the ref sent off a Derby player doubtfully
Your own Ginger messiah said so..
So you exaggerate again
FYI- you are not Barcelona
Nor are you in the Prem yet
You are however , a tin pot outfit from the back of beyond with 1960 trophy cabinet and a 1970's ground which is embarrassing
Premier League, yor havvin a laugh
2 years , 20 points...DILLIGAF!
Come back when you have won something..

I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years....

What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time...

And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why....

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
10 wins in 14 consecutive league games. Can you claim the same incredible record against Burnley? No you can't.

Burnley: 10 wins and 2 draws in 14 CONSECUTIVE LEAGUE GAMES over a period of 17 years
OR
Blackburn: 7 wins and 4 draws in 34 years (INCLUDING CUP GAMES!)

Which is the better record?

You have no argument. Wind your neck in fool.
I have a slight argument with your original comment....

'What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins.'

Then you go and post the games list and results underneath to show how moronic a statement you just made!

You lad, apart from being a sad pathetic little school kid, are an absolute retard, one who contradicts himself constantly because he cannot remember all the bo11ocks he writes due to the sheer amount of cr@p you write on here. You research everything about rovers, how sad is this? No rovers fan could care less about the going on's at your wooden stadium, but I suppose with how much a fanatical rovers fan you are it must be tough living in Burnley....?

35 years is a long time isn't it. In fact it's just over a quarter of of our history and well over a quarter of yours. Even if it ends on Sunday, it is unlikely to be repeated by Burnley. And you know what, it might just carry on!

Incidentally, did you know that Burnley used to be called Burnley Rovers?

Seems like you've been trying to emulate us since you began and judging by the desperate halfwits who devote their lives to the Rovers message boards, it is carrying on to this day.
9 March 2014 - 14 April 1979 = 34 years 11 months.

And given that we didn't play you for 29 of those years makes your 34 year thing seem a little bit pathetic, but as we all know ITS ALL YOU HAVE LEFT so you have to make a big deal out of it. I don't blame you, your club is a total embarrassment these days.

So you have a 5 year period of superiority over us, well done, but you also had a £100million+ cash advantage over us which makes your 34 comedy record the single most embarrassing claim ever heard.

Can you explain how 2 clubs on a previously equal standing can be compared if one of said clubs subsequently benefits from £100million?

You can't, which makes your 34 year thing a sham. Just like the rest of your recent history, you bought success, it's all fake, and the proof that its fake is your current league position now that all the money has gone.

You've been relegated from the Premier League TWICE!
You're TWENTY points behind Burnley in the Championship!

I would expect you clowns to be a little more humble given the state of your club at the present time. But then again come Sunday afternoon you'll be nowhere to be seen. Another 34 year big mouth coward who'll have to live with the knowledge that in 2014 Blackburn Rovers played their part in ensuring that Burnley achieved an incredible promotion to the Premier League.

Its will be written in the history books and there forever...
Jack Walkers money was irrelevant. Before he arrived as you'll be aware we were two divisions above you. Infact Burnley were flirting with the Conference four years before Walker took over. How do you explain that performance when we were 'on a level footing'.

Speaking of the history books, if by some miracle you are one of the freaks from Burnley admiring a real football ground on Sunday, try to have a look at the Jack Walker stand with a nice big shiny trophy inside it. THAT will be there forever.
"Jack Walkers money was irrelevant."

I need not read on. You have highlighted to all of us your level of intellect with that one single statement.

£100million+ is irrelevant?

I bet you'd not say not to it now though would you. You're over £56million in debt you tool. Where is Jack Walker now?

That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life.

Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal.

Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive?

It's all about timing.
Ha ha ha ha ha - OK then, good luck with that. You are simply living in denial and that's fine, I suppose as Blackburn fans you have to believe that things will get better, and that those nasty guys who have introduced these FPP rules are just going to disappear and not be bothered by over-spending clubs like yourselves deliberately flaunting the rules.

SImple facts - It has been voted in by the Football League and therefore WILL happen, you have to live withing your means and not rack up debts - it has been introduced for the benefit of football as a whole.

You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on? No, they will in all likleyhood sue the football League themselves, so which do you think the FL would prefer, two or three clubs challenging them or 70 clubs?
And what's your point Charlie? Why such an interest in the financial goings on at Rovers? Would like us to fold and go out of the league? Is that what this is all about? Are you all so riddled in envy and hate that you'd wish that on another club? The scaremongering tactic doesn't work pal. You need to concentrate on your own club who will sell your prize assets without a second thought, not to mention including your excellent manager, who's names being banded about left right and centre.

Make the most of it.......
Would I care if you went bust - nope, couldn't give a shiny **** if I am honest. I may have a little chuckle then I would carry on with my life.

Now am I correct in the fact that there were more than a few Blackburn fans that turned up at Turf Moor on 9th May 1987 to watch and gloat as Burnley were relegated from the Football league?

Oh I do concentrate on my own club, and I see a financially viable side that is complying with the FPP, that is second in the table, five points clear of third with the best strike force, the meanest defence, a massive goal difference and that is 20 points ahead of their bitter rivals.

Oh, and we won't need to sell anyone when we get promoted.
When we get promoted?

And I thought we were supposed to be arrogant.

I love how you're all so puddled you think your up in March.

Only in Burnley.......
If you'd seen your team smash Nottingham Forest off the park and then hammer Derby to go 5 points clear of 3rd place then perhaps you'd think the same thing. However given that your team has only managed to reach the heady heights of 8th place this season before dropping back towards mid-table you'll now know what it feels like.

We're as good if not better than any in this league and we're 5 points clear. It's not arrogance, its fact.
I don't believe you actually saw Burnley beat Forest and Derby, apart from on the Football League show perhaps.

You're normally busy posting your boring essays on 1960's football results on the Rovers message boards on Saturday at 3pm.
BUT..you did not hammer Derby Baldric, you struggled at 1 0 and only got a second when the ref sent off a Derby player doubtfully
Your own Ginger messiah said so..
So you exaggerate again
FYI- you are not Barcelona
Nor are you in the Prem yet
You are however , a tin pot outfit from the back of beyond with 1960 trophy cabinet and a 1970's ground which is embarrassing
Premier League, yor havvin a laugh
2 years , 20 points...DILLIGAF!
Come back when you have won something..
20 points behind the Clarets,
Nothing to play for this season after your cup final,
A third season in the Championship looming,
Further drastic cost cutting required to comply with FFP,
All players of value to be shipped out in the summer,
your club about to saddled with a transfer embargo,
Burnley on the brink of automatic promotion.

Of course you give a f@#k, its eating you up inside, and there's nothing at all you can do about it.

Just like those big shiny trophies and our unbeaten derby run of 35 years is a fact. But strangely enough on planet dingle these are facts that don't exist?

You can't have it both ways Charlie Boy. You lot just can't post anything on here without contradiction of the highest order. The fact is we hold all the records..... and you don't.

This is definitely Burnley's best chance of finally beating us but even if they do and the unspeakable happens can the Dingles honestly say they will go on a create a 35 year unbeaten record against us?

At the moment they are overachieving and they know it. There is more pressure on them to get promoted than us because its there creeping in the back of their mind that if they don't Ings, Vokes and the others who are having a very good season (and they are by the way) won't be with them next season. Burnley have to sell as they always have done. Roll on Sunday... because as long as Rovers resist defeat its a loss to the Dingles and that mentally could be very damaging to Burnley. The pressure is all on them.
I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years.... What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time... And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why.... Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level... In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2. 06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3 02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0 01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0 19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2 10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1 24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4 09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4 01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2 27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2 08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1 26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3 27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1 26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1 14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2 That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal! Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
10 wins in 14 consecutive league games. Can you claim the same incredible record against Burnley? No you can't. Burnley: 10 wins and 2 draws in 14 CONSECUTIVE LEAGUE GAMES over a period of 17 years OR Blackburn: 7 wins and 4 draws in 34 years (INCLUDING CUP GAMES!) Which is the better record? You have no argument. Wind your neck in fool.
Funny you say records since all other records to you don't count but this one and by the way the record states that the 35 year one is the better one.

That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life. Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal. Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive? It's all about timing.
Ha ha ha ha ha - OK then, good luck with that.

SImple facts - It has been voted in by the Football League and therefore WILL happen, you have to live withing your means and not rack up debts - it has been introduced for the benefit of football as a whole. You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on?

You keep on about this but blackburn have reduced this by some what since it came about QPR on the other hand has done nothing.

You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
So from 130 years of both clubs being in existence you've managed to find the only 17 year period that Burnley have a decent record against Blackburn. How about the 80 years before your selective vision and the 35 since?
Its all information that's freely available on the internet. Look it up for yourself when they next let you have a go on the Shadsworth community centre PC. Prior to our domination of Rovers things were more or less equal, as they always have been barring our incredible, never to be equalled run of 10 league wins in 14 games, and of course that short blip when you completely distorted the rivalry by benefiting from a £100million+ cash advantage. Nothing selective about it Mungo, check it out for yourself. The real worry for you clowns is that should we beat you then the record switches in our favour and given that we are now 4 years unbeaten since your hilarious relegation, and the likelihood that we'll be leaving you behind in terms of league standing with with promotion to the premier league, and given that we now have the manager, board and the infrastructure in place to maintain that position, and given that you are facing imminent financial meltdown and a pending transfer embargo your already weak squad will be further decimated next season resulting in a likely drop into League One... so in summary it could well be that following our win on Sunday we might not meet you again for many, many years.
Hmm idiot if your 4 years unbeaten then so are we since you haven't beaten us so whats your point there may will be a transfer embargo but there isn't a financial meltdown you keep harping on about.

There is more pressure on them to get promoted than us because its there creeping in the back of their mind that if they don't Ings, Vokes and the others who are having a very good season (and they are by the way) won't be with them next season. Burnley have to sell as they always have done. Roll on Sunday... because as long as Rovers resist defeat its a loss to the Dingles and that mentally could be very damaging to Burnley. The pressure is all on them.[/p][/quote]I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years.... What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time... And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why.... Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level... In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2. 06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3 02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0 01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0 19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2 10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1 24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4 09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4 01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2 27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2 08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1 26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3 27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1 26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1 14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2 That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal! Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.[/p][/quote]You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.[/p][/quote]So from 130 years of both clubs being in existence you've managed to find the only 17 year period that Burnley have a decent record against Blackburn. How about the 80 years before your selective vision and the 35 since?[/p][/quote]Its all information that's freely available on the internet. Look it up for yourself when they next let you have a go on the Shadsworth community centre PC. Prior to our domination of Rovers things were more or less equal, as they always have been barring our incredible, never to be equalled run of 10 league wins in 14 games, and of course that short blip when you completely distorted the rivalry by benefiting from a £100million+ cash advantage. Nothing selective about it Mungo, check it out for yourself. The real worry for you clowns is that should we beat you then the record switches in our favour and given that we are now 4 years unbeaten since your hilarious relegation, and the likelihood that we'll be leaving you behind in terms of league standing with with promotion to the premier league, and given that we now have the manager, board and the infrastructure in place to maintain that position, and given that you are facing imminent financial meltdown and a pending transfer embargo your already weak squad will be further decimated next season resulting in a likely drop into League One... so in summary it could well be that following our win on Sunday we might not meet you again for many, many years.[/p][/quote]Hmm idiot if your 4 years unbeaten then so are we since you haven't beaten us so whats your point there may will be a transfer embargo but there isn't a financial meltdown you keep harping on about. azza234

What's all this Glentoran thing about anyway?

You seem to have a thing about supporting clubs with superior neighbours ie Rovers and Linfield.

Also, Ireland have a superior football team to Northern Ireland. Ditto Celtic and Rangers

No wonder you're so bitter.

Jack Walkers money was irrelevant. Before he arrived as you'll be aware we were two divisions above you. Infact Burnley were flirting with the Conference four years before Walker took over. How do you explain that performance when we were 'on a level footing'. Speaking of the history books, if by some miracle you are one of the freaks from Burnley admiring a real football ground on Sunday, try to have a look at the Jack Walker stand with a nice big shiny trophy inside it.

Look up i'll point this out but you will know already since all you do is read everything rovers jack died in 2000 and we was a well run prem club all the way up till where we are now so after 2000 his money was irrelevant what's your excuse for your team's crap league finishes since 2000 onwards and i know its hard for you but jack's money wasn't a factor then. Your just jealous you haven't got owners willing to spend money on your tin pot club.

This is definitely Burnley's best chance of finally beating us but even if they do and the unspeakable happens can the Dingles honestly say they will go on a create a 35 year unbeaten record against us? I don't think so. The lack of resources they have sets there position to be where it is for years to come even if they do go up statistically the chances of them staying up are slim to none. At the moment they are overachieving and they know it. There is more pressure on them to get promoted than us because its there creeping in the back of their mind that if they don't Ings, Vokes and the others who are having a very good season (and they are by the way) won't be with them next season. Burnley have to sell as they always have done. Roll on Sunday... because as long as Rovers resist defeat its a loss to the Dingles and that mentally could be very damaging to Burnley. The pressure is all on them.
Really? The pressure is on Burnley? Don't make me laugh.

It is just another game on our march to promotion, you are just one of 13 clubs that we look to get something against between now and the end of the season - the pressure is firmly on Blackburn to give their fans something to shout in your only meaningful game left of the season.

Honestly, I would probably take a point, because regardless of your 34 year rubbish, winning our home games and drawing our away games would definitely see us promoted.
Well that was fast.... jumped right in there feet first didn't we? Slight nerve touched have we? It is true the pressure is all on Burnley we have a monkey on our back with this 35 year unbeaten stretch and if it continues mentally that will be unnerving to you. Unable to beat your neighbours when they have half a team? I noticed you missed my other points in you hastiness... what do you feel about ever replicating the 35 year unbeaten run? How do you feel about points made that you are overachieving and if you don't make promotion your star players will leave in summer? Do tell please....
To be honest the 35 year thing is a joke, you have played us what eleven times in this run, and didn't play us for 29-30 of these years. More to the point you have managed to scrape three points off us undeservedly since your hilarious relegation from the Top Table when we have dominated you in these games - this will change Sunday. I think we will be simply too strong for mid-table strugglers like yourself.

At least we have players that are in demand from other clubs - Ings, Vokes, Trippier etc etc, not a set of unwanted Premier League rejects like Gestede, Evans et al.

As for us replicating the eleven game unbeaten run, when we win on Sunday it will be up to four already.
I do love our little chats... "champagne plus charlie" how you Dingles really do know how to describe your upper class selves so well. The fact of the matter is Blackburn Rovers fans will never go into a game against Burnley "happy to take a point" I actually couldnt believe what I read in your last comment and this proves how nervous you all must still be of us. Half a team, broken down by Bolton last week and still you want just a point? And if the 35 year unbeaten run is such a joke why do you begin by attempting to play it down by stating "35 year thing is a joke" and "didn't play us for 29-30 of these years" but then try to salvage your meaningless half hearted attempt at a debate by ending your comment with "when we win on Sunday it will be up to four already." This is like playing a very poor game of Where's Wally..... because my Dingle friend.... I see you and so does everyone reading....
Oh dear, do you have learning difficulties?

When we win on Sunday it will be up to four GAMES unbeaten against you, none of this ridiculous amount of non-playing years that you goons keep babbling on about.

Do try and keep up.

Oh and as for us being nervous? Are you serious? We have just blown away two of the division's in form sides to put ourselves five points clear of Derby in second and you think we are nervous about facing you?

Comedy gold my deluded sandal-wearing friend, I for one cannot wait until Sunday.
CANT WAIT FOR DUNNY TO POP UP 5 YARDS OFFSIDE AND SCORE THE WINNER? NEITHER CAN I SON!!

I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years.... What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time... And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why.... Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level... In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2. 06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3 02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0 01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0 19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2 10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1 24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4 09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4 01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2 27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2 08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1 26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3 27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1 26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1 14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2 That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal! Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
10 wins in 14 consecutive league games. Can you claim the same incredible record against Burnley? No you can't. Burnley: 10 wins and 2 draws in 14 CONSECUTIVE LEAGUE GAMES over a period of 17 years OR Blackburn: 7 wins and 4 draws in 34 years (INCLUDING CUP GAMES!) Which is the better record? You have no argument. Wind your neck in fool.
Funny you say records since all other records to you don't count but this one and by the way the record states that the 35 year one is the better one.
We speak English in this country Mungo.
Well you better get a book then and start learning.

Another 34 year big mouth coward who'll have to live with the knowledge that in 2014 Blackburn Rovers played their part in ensuring that Burnley achieved an incredible promotion to the Premier League. Its will be written in the history books and there forever...
Jack Walkers money was irrelevant. Before he arrived as you'll be aware we were two divisions above you. Infact Burnley were flirting with the Conference four years before Walker took over. How do you explain that performance when we were 'on a level footing'. Speaking of the history books, if by some miracle you are one of the freaks from Burnley admiring a real football ground on Sunday, try to have a look at the Jack Walker stand with a nice big shiny trophy inside it. THAT will be there forever.
"Jack Walkers money was irrelevant." I need not read on. You have highlighted to all of us your level of intellect with that one single statement. £100million+ is irrelevant? I bet you'd not say not to it now though would you. You're over £56million in debt you tool. Where is Jack Walker now?
Look up i'll point this out but you will know already since all you do is read everything rovers jack died in 2000 and we was a well run prem club all the way up till where we are now so after 2000 his money was irrelevant what's your excuse for your team's crap league finishes since 2000 onwards and i know its hard for you but jack's money wasn't a factor then. Your just jealous you haven't got owners willing to spend money on your tin pot club.
Ever heard of the Walker Trust?

You were bankrolled long after Jack died. I'm surprised you weren't aware of this.

The trouble is you were only ever seen as a parasite by his family and as such when the opportunity arose they decided to take the money and run for the hills, leaving you in the very capable hands of the Venky's.

Jacks money supported you right up until the Venky's took over in November 2010. Have you beaten us since? No you haven't. Therefore his money was relevant wasn't it.

You've just made yourself look a little bit silly. Suggest you take a break from this for a while, your bitterness and anger are clearly clouding your memory.

We have always been a selling club we had to sell players like phil jones ect to buy players we wanted yeah we might of been bankrolled by them but they didn't bankroll the club that much in that time they made us a stable prem club without spending much. Your the bitter one that's why your always here why don't you listen to your own advise and do one?.

So you have a 5 year period of superiority over us, well done, but you also had a £100million+ cash advantage over us which makes your 34 comedy record the single most embarrassing claim ever heard. Can you explain how 2 clubs on a previously equal standing can be compared if one of said clubs subsequently benefits from £100million? You can't, which makes your 34 year thing a sham. Just like the rest of your recent history, you bought success, it's all fake, and the proof that its fake is your current league position now that all the money has gone. You've been relegated from the Premier League TWICE! You're TWENTY points behind Burnley in the Championship! I would expect you clowns to be a little more humble given the state of your club at the present time. But then again come Sunday afternoon you'll be nowhere to be seen. Another 34 year big mouth coward who'll have to live with the knowledge that in 2014 Blackburn Rovers played their part in ensuring that Burnley achieved an incredible promotion to the Premier League. Its will be written in the history books and there forever...[/p][/quote]Jack Walkers money was irrelevant. Before he arrived as you'll be aware we were two divisions above you. Infact Burnley were flirting with the Conference four years before Walker took over. How do you explain that performance when we were 'on a level footing'. Speaking of the history books, if by some miracle you are one of the freaks from Burnley admiring a real football ground on Sunday, try to have a look at the Jack Walker stand with a nice big shiny trophy inside it. THAT will be there forever.[/p][/quote]"Jack Walkers money was irrelevant." I need not read on. You have highlighted to all of us your level of intellect with that one single statement. £100million+ is irrelevant? I bet you'd not say not to it now though would you. You're over £56million in debt you tool. Where is Jack Walker now?[/p][/quote]Look up i'll point this out but you will know already since all you do is read everything rovers jack died in 2000 and we was a well run prem club all the way up till where we are now so after 2000 his money was irrelevant what's your excuse for your team's crap league finishes since 2000 onwards and i know its hard for you but jack's money wasn't a factor then. Your just jealous you haven't got owners willing to spend money on your tin pot club.[/p][/quote]Ever heard of the Walker Trust? You were bankrolled long after Jack died. I'm surprised you weren't aware of this. The trouble is you were only ever seen as a parasite by his family and as such when the opportunity arose they decided to take the money and run for the hills, leaving you in the very capable hands of the Venky's. Jacks money supported you right up until the Venky's took over in November 2010. Have you beaten us since? No you haven't. Therefore his money was relevant wasn't it. You've just made yourself look a little bit silly. Suggest you take a break from this for a while, your bitterness and anger are clearly clouding your memory.[/p][/quote]We have always been a selling club we had to sell players like phil jones ect to buy players we wanted yeah we might of been bankrolled by them but they didn't bankroll the club that much in that time they made us a stable prem club without spending much. Your the bitter one that's why your always here why don't you listen to your own advise and do one?. azza234

Wouldn't expect Rovers to say anything until he puts pen to paper, the simple fact that a new contract is being discussed with still 3 years to go on his current one shows that we are looking at the longer term.

A new contract is good for both Rhodes and Rovers, it gives both parties the security of up to 5 years more and guarantees a decent payday for both if a bigger club does come in and make an offer that neither can refuse.

And for the currently crowing Burnley fans I see that Ings is still stalling on his contract which I believe has a little more than 12 months to run.
Whilst I agree that penning a longer deal increases the security and price if we sell him - fine.

However (and I know that you for 1 Nick don't believe it) but we are going to have a transfer embargo imposed on us on 1st Jan 2015 - how does increasing one of your players salaries from £35,000 per WEEK ! to MORE help us REDUCE our costs and help us ASAP to come within our FFP limits (unless we sell him this summer).

If we keep him & increase our losses then we WILL annoy the FL, the rest of the FL members & UEFA (all of whom are determined to introduce FFP) and will endure a transfer embargo that could, in time destroy the club.

Rovers HAVE to seriously start REDUCING their losses, firstly because they are UNSUSTAINABLE and secondly because we will be forced into a humiliating transfer embargo that, in time will have devastating results on BRFC (ie reduction in revenues and ultimately, relegation).

Just for once I hope that your mates, the Venkys, know what they are doing (haha) because the medium & long-term future and stability of BRFC is at stake here.

I know you (Nick) and others on here don't accept this following statement but it is TRUE - IT IS CRAZY and UNSUSTAINABLE for BFRC to continue to keep trying to live way beyond our income (in summer, when we lose another £8m in TV revenues) our outgoings will be roughly 100% MORE than our incomes - this is UTTER LUNACY!!!!
That is Venky's problem, nothing you or I can do about it any you ranting and raving at me is totally ineffective because I don't give a flying feck, I have more important things to worry about in my life.

Rovers aren't alone with this problem, at least 75% of the clubs in the FA and FL will be in serious trouble next season, the only club I am aware of that isn't going to have problems is Arsenal.

Do you seriously think that one the challenges start and the inevitable revolt starts that the FA and FL are going to risk losing 75% of the membership that keeps them alive?

It's all about timing.
Ha ha ha ha ha - OK then, good luck with that. You are simply living in denial and that's fine, I suppose as Blackburn fans you have to believe that things will get better, and that those nasty guys who have introduced these FPP rules are just going to disappear and not be bothered by over-spending clubs like yourselves deliberately flaunting the rules.

SImple facts - It has been voted in by the Football League and therefore WILL happen, you have to live withing your means and not rack up debts - it has been introduced for the benefit of football as a whole.

You talk about clubs not being bothered, but the vast majority of FL clubs have made preparations already and have reduced their wage bill and playing staff to get ready for this - including Burnley who have signed Marney and Wallace on reduced terms. Do you really think that all the rest of the Football League clubs would simply say OK Blackburn and QPR that's fine - we don't mind that we are being forced to comply and you are flouting the rules - you carry on? No, they will in all likleyhood sue the football League themselves, so which do you think the FL would prefer, two or three clubs challenging them or 70 clubs?
Please show me exactly where I said clubs aren't bothered about FFP?

I said I am not bothered about FFP because there is nothing I can do about it and there are far more important things in my life to deal with right now than things I can't affect one way or the other.

That is up to our owners and the owners of every other club that can be affected to sort out.

I am just a fan.

Shame you can't read.

Then you state you will be happy with a point on Sunday, unbelievable after all the drivel you spout day in day out.

You will take a point against a side who may have at the best only around 50% of their squad fit and available?

A side that fell apart on Saturday against one of the worst teams in the league?

A point against a side that you and the rest of your moronic mates have been deriding all season, crowing how good you are, how much better than Rovers you are for the first time in God knows how many years.

I think you are panicking just a tad, you are realising that if Rovers do manage to pull off a win on Sunday that after all the crap you have dished out this season you won't be able to come on here again, because all you will get is crap back in spades.

A point?

You are quite wrong azza,

As you must know by now Burnley are the best team on the planet.

Premier League clubs are dreading them being promoted because they know that will never, ever have a chance of winning it again.

Barca, Real Madrid and the rest are terrified that they will get promoted because they know they will have to play them the season after following Burnley's incredible effort of having the PL won by the end of September 2014.

All I might add without spending a single penny on new players or their ground.

They are also the most financially stable club on the planet with a board made up of local hero's and quite obviously the best 11,000 fans in the world.

It must be the Carlsberg.

No one has said it's a done deal. You said we had a sh!t team and I disagreed with you.

There is a long way yet to go but to be 5 points clear of 3rd place, on 66 points and with a reasonable run-in we can afford to feel a little bit confident. We also have Sean Dyche as manager, and I'm sure you'd be more than happy to swap Gary "the Maths teacher" Bowyer for the Ginger Mourinho.

This is definitely Burnley's best chance of finally beating us but even if they do and the unspeakable happens can the Dingles honestly say they will go on a create a 35 year unbeaten record against us? I don't think so. The lack of resources they have sets there position to be where it is for years to come even if they do go up statistically the chances of them staying up are slim to none. At the moment they are overachieving and they know it. There is more pressure on them to get promoted than us because its there creeping in the back of their mind that if they don't Ings, Vokes and the others who are having a very good season (and they are by the way) won't be with them next season. Burnley have to sell as they always have done. Roll on Sunday... because as long as Rovers resist defeat its a loss to the Dingles and that mentally could be very damaging to Burnley. The pressure is all on them.
I see we have another 95'er here spouting the usual pre-derby nonsense about 34 years....

What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins. So perhaps you should do your homework before getting so excited next time...

And in case you don't realise out of the 34 years, we didn't actually play you for 29 of them! Embarrassed for you pal, and here's why....

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 CONSECUTIVE league games during a period in both clubs history when the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

That's right, 10 league wins and 2 draws in 17 years when all things were considered equal!

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which Jack Walker was shamefully conned out of £100 million+.
You forgot to mention that you lost 2 out of that "consecutive run" and haven't won one since.
10 wins in 14 consecutive league games. Can you claim the same incredible record against Burnley? No you can't.

Burnley: 10 wins and 2 draws in 14 CONSECUTIVE LEAGUE GAMES over a period of 17 years
OR
Blackburn: 7 wins and 4 draws in 34 years (INCLUDING CUP GAMES!)

Which is the better record?

You have no argument. Wind your neck in fool.
I have a slight argument with your original comment....

'What you and many of the other morons fail to realise is that Burnley are in fact the proud holders of the best record in the derby, that being the number of consecutive wins.'

Then you go and post the games list and results underneath to show how moronic a statement you just made!

You lad, apart from being a sad pathetic little school kid, are an absolute retard, one who contradicts himself constantly because he cannot remember all the bo11ocks he writes due to the sheer amount of cr@p you write on here. You research everything about rovers, how sad is this? No rovers fan could care less about the going on's at your wooden stadium, but I suppose with how much a fanatical rovers fan you are it must be tough living in Burnley....?
Ouch. A good put-down CdB.

I'm sensing another no-dad is having another bad day in Shadsworth.

The cracks are certainly starting to appear now as squeaky bum syndrome sets in for this particular Rovers fan.

And as usual the grammar policing is stepped up to red alert as the Blackburn fans have nothing else to do other than pick up on typo's and grammatical errors. Forget the point eh, just hammer me if I should miss out a comma! What a muppet.

Appalling hypocrisy too, "No rovers fan could care less about the going on's at your wooden stadium".

I beg to differ, you only need to read through the posts on the Burnley stories to realise that you lot are obsessed with our rampant performances this season and try everything you can to put down our achievements so far, and as for us being 5 points clear of 3rd place after 33 games, I can't imagine the amount of suffering we are causing you.

Must be tough living in Burnley? Not really, especially when we're 20 points above the filth. How's live in Shadsworth?

Ok lets just humor the bunny boiler and pretend Burnley are a big club and have won lots of trophies and have lots of fans and have never lost to Rovers and are the most perfectly run football club in the universe will win 30 nil on Sunday and will win the League and then will win the Prem League and have no glory hunters and that everyone in Burnley supports Burnley and that the catchment area of Burnley is 10,000 and the catchment area of Blackburn is the same as the population of China and that Rovers have no fans whatsoever and have never won a single game of football.

No what it means is because Burnley spent most of that time either 1 or 2 divisions lower that we only played 11 times and Rovers didn't lose a single game but did manage to rack up a 7-0 aggregate score inbetween winning a couple of major trophies. Hope that helps dog breath.

Truth is your team is sh1t how's that for a fact?.
If it were a fact I would accept it, however its nonsense.

Burnley are playing the best football in the league and have been consistently doing so all season. You are just very bitter and angry that your team isn't as good as ours.

As for facts... your club is over £56million in debt, facing a transfer embargo and the sale of all assets of value in the summer. Hows that for a fact?
You are quite wrong azza,

As you must know by now Burnley are the best team on the planet.

Premier League clubs are dreading them being promoted because they know that will never, ever have a chance of winning it again.

Barca, Real Madrid and the rest are terrified that they will get promoted because they know they will have to play them the season after following Burnley's incredible effort of having the PL won by the end of September 2014.

All I might add without spending a single penny on new players or their ground.

They are also the most financially stable club on the planet with a board made up of local hero's and quite obviously the best 11,000 fans in the world.

I take it this is your effort at sarcasm? Well done.

No one has said we're world beaters, we're just a very good Championship team.

A team that you and your kind aspire to be like (secretly).
I'd rather clap with sh*t between my hands than aspire to have any likeness to your medieval club. It's nothing personal, it's just the way it is.

If Burnley lose they will still be in second place with 12 games to go. If they draw they'll still be in second place with 12 games to go. If they win they'll still be in second place with 12 games to go

Its just another game. 3 points, 1 point or no points. We can make good any ****-up in the games after or build on a win or draw.

It matter to Rovers. It helps in their attempt to close the gap on the bigger, better supported, more solidly run clubs that are pressing for playoffs.

Burnley are in higher position than those chasing playoffs, of course.

Blackburn need to secure a further 6 points to be safe from relegation. They are on 46 and 52 seems to be the bench-mark.

Burnley to be promoted in second place or as champions, whatever happens on Sunday and Rovers to win their potential relegation fight regardless of what happens on Sunday.

As a Burnley fan living in Blackburn I have had to take a lot of stick from my workmates, "six points and cheap pies !" " gimmie six dingle" etc. etc.
I listen to the matches on radio Lancs and take an interest in all the local clubs, ( what an exciting season ). I can honestly say I have virtually forgotten about the premiership.
This Sunday is going to be a great clash and whoever wins (Burnley 2 -1) I hope both teams stay in the battle for promotion.
Good luck to Bolton, Blackpool, Accrington and all the rest of the clubs in the North!

This time next week - all the hoo ha stoked up by the Telegraph who have nothing better to write about will be history - thank goodness. Journalism at its very .....

Not certain many are interested in the game just the result and no doubt the people wanting to watch the game will have to stand to see it while the fans will be standing chanting at each other. End of the day the game is not worth more than 3 points like any other..

This topic originally was about Rhodes and Rovers quiet on a deal. Rovers are quiet on any deal - they must have central defenders in situ asap it is no use bringing in a player on Friday or Saturday who doesnt know the set up or trained with the other players whether we play Burnley or Barnsley. But thats Venkys for you and their vow of silence. Wonder if they will make an appearance for the first time this year - spring and ciuckoos come to mind afer a nice day here

You are quite wrong azza,

As you must know by now Burnley are the best team on the planet.

Premier League clubs are dreading them being promoted because they know that will never, ever have a chance of winning it again.

Barca, Real Madrid and the rest are terrified that they will get promoted because they know they will have to play them the season after following Burnley's incredible effort of having the PL won by the end of September 2014.

Been there, done it, bought several T shirts and football shirts for that matter, and I have fantastic memories.

We have achieved more than your miserable little one season wonders club have without even breaking sweat, that's why you are so fixated with Rovers, total, absolute jealousy oozes out of your pores.

How you would have loved a Jack Walker to take over from Bob Lord, but it didn't happen as you slid further and further into mediocrity, he will still be spinning in his grave every time he checks out your cowshed ground and it's cabbage patch pitch.

What have Burnley actually won in the last 35 years?

I think your desperation is reaching new levels here, history stands for nothing. We have broken every record we've come up against this season.

What should concern you is what has happened more recently....

Burnley have beaten QPR, and having been 3 point below them we are now 9 points and 14 goals ahead of them.

Burnley have recently destroyed Nottingham Forest, in the process drawing comparisons with Barcelona such was the quality and cohesion within the team that day, Forest battered you 4-1.

Burnley have just beaten Derby, a team you all thought was going to stroll into 2nd place at our expense, we're now 5 points and 8 goals clear of them. We previously battered them 3-0 away.

Burnley's international players have had a good warm up and come back injury free.

Blackburn have just been humiliated 4-0 by lowly Bolton, a team that looks like relegation material.

Blackburn's "star player" can't score goals any more.

Blackburn's defence is arguably the weakest its been in 30+ years.

Blackburn are still considered 6 points from safety.

Blackburn Rovers are far and away the poorer team, and to believe otherwise shows that you simply cannot accept reality.

MP3 is an encoding format for digital audio, it is not a physical medium, hence it cannot be broken in the sense that you imply. Perhaps you meant to say digital audio player?

None of the above is likely but all are possible. Rather than try to look into the future, I prefer to learn from history. Historically, Rovers are far and away the better team.[/p][/quote]I think your desperation is reaching new levels here, history stands for nothing. We have broken every record we've come up against this season. What should concern you is what has happened more recently.... Burnley have beaten QPR, and having been 3 point below them we are now 9 points and 14 goals ahead of them. Burnley have recently destroyed Nottingham Forest, in the process drawing comparisons with Barcelona such was the quality and cohesion within the team that day, Forest battered you 4-1. Burnley have just beaten Derby, a team you all thought was going to stroll into 2nd place at our expense, we're now 5 points and 8 goals clear of them. We previously battered them 3-0 away. Burnley's international players have had a good warm up and come back injury free. Blackburn have just been humiliated 4-0 by lowly Bolton, a team that looks like relegation material. Blackburn's "star player" can't score goals any more. Blackburn's defence is arguably the weakest its been in 30+ years. Blackburn are still considered 6 points from safety. Blackburn Rovers are far and away the poorer team, and to believe otherwise shows that you simply cannot accept reality.[/p][/quote]Nice to see you have broken every record you have come up against this season, what a shame CD's and MP3's haven't found their way to Burnley yet.[/p][/quote]MP3 is an encoding format for digital audio, it is not a physical medium, hence it cannot be broken in the sense that you imply. Perhaps you meant to say digital audio player? Have you got your nappy ready? look up blackburn

Its just another game. 3 points, 1 point or no points. We can make good any ****-up in the games after or build on a win or draw.

It matter to Rovers. It helps in their attempt to close the gap on the bigger, better supported, more solidly run clubs that are pressing for playoffs.

Burnley are in higher position than those chasing playoffs, of course.

Blackburn need to secure a further 6 points to be safe from relegation. They are on 46 and 52 seems to be the bench-mark.

Burnley to be promoted in second place or as champions, whatever happens on Sunday and Rovers to win their potential relegation fight regardless of what happens on Sunday.

The teams from history won't be taking to the field on Sunday, the current teams will be. Currently, we are 20 points ahead of you and have suffered just 3 defeats this season. No one can predict the future, its just fun and banter. But to write that you will rely on history is to suggest that you are as thick as two short planks. I am sure you're not, so get real. Get to 52 points and go build your season. Have faith that GB and Venky are building for the future. Its sensible for you guys to target next season and go for the playoffs, or better. Defeat for you or us won't be the end of the world on Sunday.

I din't write that I will rely on history Rob, I said I would prefer to learn from it. Recent history tells me two things 1) we do well against you and 2) we bounce back from a drubbing (like we got at Bolton).
