Simon Garner column: All the derby pressure is on Burnley

I THINK the pressure is more on Burnley than Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.

At the moment looking at the league, they probably need the points more than us because they’re going for automatic promotion.

Burnley probably go into the game this time as slight favourites.

They have done really well this season, even I have to say that.

But if they don’t go up this season you could see them having a problem hanging on to their manager Sean Dyche, because he has done a great job on a restricted budget.

If they didn’t go up and he got an offer from the Premier League, you could see him saying he’d like to go.

So they need to go up this year and that puts pressure on them in this game.

I’m not sure yet if they will go up. They have been lucky with injuries this season, they’ve been able to play pretty much the same side all season and the two strikers have stayed fit.

It would be great for Rovers fans at the end of the season if they could say that they beat Burnley and those three points cost Burnley promotion.

Maybe in some other games I would take a draw but not against Burnley, I want us to win this one.

We have to go out there to win.

As an ex-Blackburn player and fan, we don’t want Burnley to be playing in a league above us next season.

But the form book goes out of the window in games like this. Results this season will count for absolutely nothing on Sunday.

If David Dunn is fit I would start him on Sunday.

I think he needs to play in a game like this. He is pretty much the last one who understands really what this game is all about, and he will be the player Burnley would least want to see in the Rovers starting line-up.

I’m sure he will be knocking no Gary Bowyer’s door and saying that he wants to play.

Hopefully Jordan Rhodes will end his run without a goal, too.

He will start scoring again soon and hopefully it’s on Sunday.

It’s good to hear that he might be getting a new contract.

It’s important to keep your best players, and he is so important for Rovers.

Every game is pressure - look at our last two games. Forest came and left Turf moor with their 14 game unbeaten run shattered and then Derby came on the back of a run of 2 defeats in 20 games and could have overtaken us in second if they beat us - they didn't and were sent packing with no points.

Good sides take every game as it comes, Sunday will be no different.

Exactly, this Burnley team thrives under pressure.

Blackburn are the home team and they have only got their comedy record to fall back on as Burnley have DOMINATED Blackburn Rovers in EVERY SINGLE AREA this season. The pay-off's are out of reach for them and they have only this one remaining shred of dignity to preserve at all costs. THEY MUST NOT LOSE! How much pressure does that put the team under.

Not only that but to add insult to injury if Blackburn do lose then Burnley could well be heading for the Premier League, and if those 3 points were the difference come the end of the season how could the Blackburn Rovers fans live with the knowledge that they failed to stop us!

Burnley have lost only 3 games in 33, Blackburn have already lost 10 games in 32 this season. That a damning statistic if ever there was one, BLACKBURN HAVE LOST A THIRD OF THEIR GAMES THIS SEASON!

Blackburn's defence is shocking, as seen last week when Bolton utterly humiliated Rovers and laid a 4-0 spanking on them. If Bolton, a team looking like relegation material, can walk through Blackburn's defence 4 times then what are the leagues best strike partnership going to do?

Of course they have Jordan Rhodes, a top player on his day, who has been going through a dry spell recently and is due a goal but if he's not getting the service then his dry spell will continue, probably until he gets the move away he been waiting for at the end of the season.

I see the pressure being all on Blackburn Rovers to STOP Burnley because if we come out like we did against Nottingham Forest they will have a real game on their hands and the pressure will get to them with attack after attack coming from Burnley. Sean Dyche knows what he's doing, he's proven himself time and time again this season and he certainly knows how to motivate his team.

One thing Burnley have done all season is play with freedom and confidence, every player knows his role and that of his team mates, there is a cohesion that is lacking in a lot of teams, certainly Blackburn have nothing like it with their cobbled together team and Bowyer's bizarre tactical decision making.

With such a fantastic away support this could well be the year that Ewood Park turns Claret and Blue! Looking forward to it.

To be fair and balanced, Forest came to us depleted with injuries (something we've managed to luckily avoid) and Derby were unlucky to have a man sent off when they had half a chance of a penalty. A run of bad luck is definitely round the corner for us. They'll accept a draw, we need to win so it's right that the pressure is on us.

Once again the rodent from Shadsworth is trying his best to invent a world of make-believe and fairy-tales to protect himself from the horror of the reality that is Burnley's fantastic season and Blackburn Rover's continued decline into obscurity and imminent financial meltdown...

a world where Jack Walker skips gleefully through the streets of Blackburn naked and ej@culating pound coins to the delight of the cheering masses...

a world where Shadsworth is a normal functioning community without rat infestations, substance abusers, and defecating stray dogs...

a world where Blackburn Rovers are competing with the cream of English and European football, instead of disgracing themselves and their country with shambolic in-fighting and match-fixing allegations.

a world where Venky's opted out of buying Blackburn Rovers and were never heard from again, while Saudi Billionaires pumped in the cash to bring back the good times.

a world where Blackburn Rovers are a Premier League club......


He then wakes up with a sticky mess on his duvet and realises that world exists only in his own warped odious mind and as a result he shamelessly proceeds to force it on us all in the hope that one day it might just come true.

It's a shame for poor old Mungo, he suffers from a terrible affliction and we should pity him.

What a complete one sided, badly though out, written article. To actually come out with statements such as "we don’t want Burnley to be playing in a league above us next season or "Maybe in some other games I would take a draw but not against Burnley" and worse still " It would be great for Rovers fans at the end of the season if they could say that they beat Burnley and those three points cost Burnley promotion."

Obviously as "an Ex-Rovers player" we have to sympathise with probably being ignorant, ill-educated and to be blunt "Thick"

I thought true aficionados of the game would be pleased to see local teams doing well regardless of which end of the M65 they are. True fans enjoy proper banter but this sort of diatribe serves only to encourage the moronic sector of those who call themselves fans but are nothing more than juveniles with inadequate reasoning.

Sunday should be a good game from a true fan's perspective and I probably expect to see a draw, but hope it doesn't end in a brawl either on the pitch or terraces. Most of all I do not want to see over the top dangerous tackles that can end a player's career regardless of which side.

I've written to the Prime Minister to intervene and tell Bowyer to throw the game. I told him the NHS would not be able to cope if Bumley lose again. Another Bumley loss would mean Cameron having to spend money on the NHS and he definitely does not want to do that, so all you Bumley fans can feel confident for a change. Forgotten how to do that? Psychological damage really taken its toll? Enjoy life for a change! Forget the inferiority complexes. Bet on a Bumley win! All us Rovers fans want you to win this time! We want you to remember how it feels to feel normal! There's never been a better chance for you. You're doing well in the league, Rovers are average at best and not ready for the play offs, so make the most of it!

Prediction: Rovers 1 Bumley 0.

Blackburn are the home team and they have only got their comedy record to fall back on as Burnley have DOMINATED Blackburn Rovers in EVERY SINGLE AREA this season. The pay-off's are out of reach for them and they have only this one remaining shred of dignity to preserve at all costs. THEY MUST NOT LOSE! How much pressure does that put the team under.

Not only that but to add insult to injury if Blackburn do lose then Burnley could well be heading for the Premier League, and if those 3 points were the difference come the end of the season how could the Blackburn Rovers fans live with the knowledge that they failed to stop us!

Burnley have lost only 3 games in 33, Blackburn have already lost 10 games in 32 this season. That a damning statistic if ever there was one, BLACKBURN HAVE LOST A THIRD OF THEIR GAMES THIS SEASON!

Blackburn's defence is shocking, as seen last week when Bolton utterly humiliated Rovers and laid a 4-0 spanking on them. If Bolton, a team looking like relegation material, can walk through Blackburn's defence 4 times then what are the leagues best strike partnership going to do?

Of course they have Jordan Rhodes, a top player on his day, who has been going through a dry spell recently and is due a goal but if he's not getting the service then his dry spell will continue, probably until he gets the move away he been waiting for at the end of the season.

I see the pressure being all on Blackburn Rovers to STOP Burnley because if we come out like we did against Nottingham Forest they will have a real game on their hands and the pressure will get to them with attack after attack coming from Burnley. Sean Dyche knows what he's doing, he's proven himself time and time again this season and he certainly knows how to motivate his team.

One thing Burnley have done all season is play with freedom and confidence, every player knows his role and that of his team mates, there is a cohesion that is lacking in a lot of teams, certainly Blackburn have nothing like it with their cobbled together team and Bowyer's bizarre tactical decision making.

With such a fantastic away support this could well be the year that Ewood Park turns Claret and Blue! Looking forward to it.

I agree entirely. This kind of "article" should never appear in a supposedly unbiased newspaper. It can easily have an effect on Sundays game in as much as if the morons on both sides want a call to action then this piece of garbage is just the thing. Garner (if it is he and not someone slightly more literate) should hang his head in shame, and if Sunday does turn into a firefight then the finger of blame should certainly point in his general direction. The Telegraph should have a good look at themselves for allowing this terrible piece of writing to be printed and if Garner is not the actual writer then why has he allowed is name to be associated with it?
Incidentally, under the circumstances, could he be charged with incitement, for I feel he should be.

Good sides take every game as it comes, Sunday will be no different.
So you're comparing playing Forest with and Derby with us?

Nice try but it's very very different and you know it.

You can play it down all you want Charlie but Burnley fans want to register a victory against us more than ANYTHING IN THEIR LIVES - FACT.

And if you're players sense your absolute desperation for victory it could be the undoing of you yet again.

Exactly, this Burnley team thrives under pressure.

Blackburn are the home team and they have only got their comedy record to fall back on as Burnley have DOMINATED Blackburn Rovers in EVERY SINGLE AREA this season. The pay-off's are out of reach for them and they have only this one remaining shred of dignity to preserve at all costs. THEY MUST NOT LOSE! How much pressure does that put the team under.

Not only that but to add insult to injury if Blackburn do lose then Burnley could well be heading for the Premier League, and if those 3 points were the difference come the end of the season how could the Blackburn Rovers fans live with the knowledge that they failed to stop us!

Burnley have lost only 3 games in 33, Blackburn have already lost 10 games in 32 this season. That a damning statistic if ever there was one, BLACKBURN HAVE LOST A THIRD OF THEIR GAMES THIS SEASON!

Blackburn's defence is shocking, as seen last week when Bolton utterly humiliated Rovers and laid a 4-0 spanking on them. If Bolton, a team looking like relegation material, can walk through Blackburn's defence 4 times then what are the leagues best strike partnership going to do?

Of course they have Jordan Rhodes, a top player on his day, who has been going through a dry spell recently and is due a goal but if he's not getting the service then his dry spell will continue, probably until he gets the move away he been waiting for at the end of the season.

I see the pressure being all on Blackburn Rovers to STOP Burnley because if we come out like we did against Nottingham Forest they will have a real game on their hands and the pressure will get to them with attack after attack coming from Burnley. Sean Dyche knows what he's doing, he's proven himself time and time again this season and he certainly knows how to motivate his team.

One thing Burnley have done all season is play with freedom and confidence, every player knows his role and that of his team mates, there is a cohesion that is lacking in a lot of teams, certainly Blackburn have nothing like it with their cobbled together team and Bowyer's bizarre tactical decision making.

With such a fantastic away support this could well be the year that Ewood Park turns Claret and Blue! Looking forward to it.

Spot on Simon - ex player and fan. What do you trogs expect him to say. The pressure IS all on the dingles, out of shear desperation to register a win for the first time in most of your lives. Just make sure you get on their backs when it's not all going your way, but don't trash the ground again. Don't smash up your own town center and don't take it too badly when we make it 36 years.

I'll be around, no worries. Far too old to care overly actually. Win. lose or draw we stay second. The games against Leeds and Leicester coming up for us are arguably more important. Just remember, you need 52 to 54 points to be safe from relegation. You lot are on 46. Another 3 wins secures Championship status for next season for you. If you lose on Saturday, then you may find that a hard call in the last 10 games.

Enjoy Sunday.

Nice try Simon but I'm afraid that you're not kidding anyone at either end of the M 65. Win, lose or draw, Burnley will still be riding high in second spot and well clear of third place. Rovers come in to the game on the back of a demoralising drubbing against a mediocre Bolton side and without a recognised centre back available. Add to that, our manager's inexplicable faith in Williamson, Henley and Lowe and I think I know which manager is likely to sleep better on Saturday night. A lot will depend on who we have available and how much passion and desire they have for a match that with the obvious exception of David Dunn, will be just like any other. Personally, I feel that we have much more to lose than Burnley. If we win, it will neither move us up the table or get the stay away fans flooding back. If we lose, it marks the end of another era and will give an excuse to another generation to walk away from the club.
We need every player and every fan to give everything for 120 minutes on Sunday. Come on you Blues!

No arguments from me on that score. Burnley have done ok this season and it looks as though they are set for automatic promotion. Hopefully we can put a spanner in the works on sunday

I agree entirely. This kind of "article" should never appear in a supposedly unbiased newspaper. It can easily have an effect on Sundays game in as much as if the morons on both sides want a call to action then this piece of garbage is just the thing.

Of course they have Jordan Rhodes, a top player on his day, who has been going through a dry spell recently and is due a goal but if he's not getting the service then his dry spell will continue, probably until he gets the move away he been waiting for at the end of the season. I see the pressure being all on Blackburn Rovers to STOP Burnley because if we come out like we did against Nottingham Forest they will have a real game on their hands and the pressure will get to them with attack after attack coming from Burnley. Sean Dyche knows what he's doing, he's proven himself time and time again this season and he certainly knows how to motivate his team. One thing Burnley have done all season is play with freedom and confidence, every player knows his role and that of his team mates, there is a cohesion that is lacking in a lot of teams, certainly Blackburn have nothing like it with their cobbled together team and Bowyer's bizarre tactical decision making. With such a fantastic away support this could well be the year that Ewood Park turns Claret and Blue!

I thought true aficionados of the game would be pleased to see local teams doing well regardless of which end of the M65 they are. True fans enjoy proper banter but this sort of diatribe serves only to encourage the moronic sector of those who call themselves fans but are nothing more than juveniles with inadequate reasoning.

Sunday should be a good game from a true fan's perspective and I probably expect to see a draw, but hope it doesn't end in a brawl either on the pitch or terraces. Most of all I do not want to see over the top dangerous tackles that can end a player's career regardless of which side.
I agree entirely. This kind of "article" should never appear in a supposedly unbiased newspaper. It can easily have an effect on Sundays game in as much as if the morons on both sides want a call to action then this piece of garbage is just the thing. Garner (if it is he and not someone slightly more literate) should hang his head in shame, and if Sunday does turn into a firefight then the finger of blame should certainly point in his general direction. The Telegraph should have a good look at themselves for allowing this terrible piece of writing to be printed and if Garner is not the actual writer then why has he allowed is name to be associated with it?
Incidentally, under the circumstances, could he be charged with incitement, for I feel he should be.

Too may long words in it for you? post pot and added comment were fair and reasonable.

Exactly, this Burnley team thrives under pressure.

Blackburn are the home team and they have only got their comedy record to fall back on as Burnley have DOMINATED Blackburn Rovers in EVERY SINGLE AREA this season. The pay-off's are out of reach for them and they have only this one remaining shred of dignity to preserve at all costs. THEY MUST NOT LOSE! How much pressure does that put the team under.

Not only that but to add insult to injury if Blackburn do lose then Burnley could well be heading for the Premier League, and if those 3 points were the difference come the end of the season how could the Blackburn Rovers fans live with the knowledge that they failed to stop us!

Burnley have lost only 3 games in 33, Blackburn have already lost 10 games in 32 this season. That a damning statistic if ever there was one, BLACKBURN HAVE LOST A THIRD OF THEIR GAMES THIS SEASON!

Blackburn's defence is shocking, as seen last week when Bolton utterly humiliated Rovers and laid a 4-0 spanking on them. If Bolton, a team looking like relegation material, can walk through Blackburn's defence 4 times then what are the leagues best strike partnership going to do?

Of course they have Jordan Rhodes, a top player on his day, who has been going through a dry spell recently and is due a goal but if he's not getting the service then his dry spell will continue, probably until he gets the move away he been waiting for at the end of the season.

I see the pressure being all on Blackburn Rovers to STOP Burnley because if we come out like we did against Nottingham Forest they will have a real game on their hands and the pressure will get to them with attack after attack coming from Burnley. Sean Dyche knows what he's doing, he's proven himself time and time again this season and he certainly knows how to motivate his team.

One thing Burnley have done all season is play with freedom and confidence, every player knows his role and that of his team mates, there is a cohesion that is lacking in a lot of teams, certainly Blackburn have nothing like it with their cobbled together team and Bowyer's bizarre tactical decision making.

With such a fantastic away support this could well be the year that Ewood Park turns Claret and Blue! Looking forward to it.

I thought true aficionados of the game would be pleased to see local teams doing well regardless of which end of the M65 they are. True fans enjoy proper banter but this sort of diatribe serves only to encourage the moronic sector of those who call themselves fans but are nothing more than juveniles with inadequate reasoning.

Sunday should be a good game from a true fan's perspective and I probably expect to see a draw, but hope it doesn't end in a brawl either on the pitch or terraces. Most of all I do not want to see over the top dangerous tackles that can end a player's career regardless of which side.
I agree entirely. This kind of "article" should never appear in a supposedly unbiased newspaper. It can easily have an effect on Sundays game in as much as if the morons on both sides want a call to action then this piece of garbage is just the thing. Garner (if it is he and not someone slightly more literate) should hang his head in shame, and if Sunday does turn into a firefight then the finger of blame should certainly point in his general direction. The Telegraph should have a good look at themselves for allowing this terrible piece of writing to be printed and if Garner is not the actual writer then why has he allowed is name to be associated with it?
Incidentally, under the circumstances, could he be charged with incitement, for I feel he should be.
What an utter disgrace Telegraph.
What a load of nonesense. What an utter disgrace of a post
What's disgraceful about it or the agreeing post Bladderwort?
Too may long words in it for you? post pot and added comment were fair and reasonable.

Still if you are one of the morons then long words may seem like foreign (**** a long word again) ones to you
It was sarcasm Vintage. If he can argue that Simon Garner should be charged with incitement for writing an opinion piece and call the thing an utter disgrace, then I can say that his opinion is also an utter disgrace. There. An explanation without resorting to personal attacks
Pont taken, wrists slapped and apology proffered.

It should certainly inflame the Clarets fans on Sunday. So be prepared Mr Garner, if it was you.

Come out come out whoever you are
I think the clue is in the headline you think turd...

'Simon Garner column: All the derby pressure is on Burnley'

You dingles would do to pool each of the single brain cells you have together...
What's a think turd? Is it some form of intelligent fecal matter?
lol

Pathetic comments from a "journalist". No wonder fans have to travel in compulsory coaches when people in respectable positions are allowed to stir things up like this. Well done Lancashire telegraph. Or should that be Blackburn telegraph?
