DANNY Ings’ winner helped Burnley recover from a goal down at Ewood Park and claim their first victory over Blackburn Rovers in 35 years.

Ings netted with 12 minutes left , five minutes after Jason Shackell had cancelled out Jordan Rhodes’ first-half opener.

The win was Burnley’s first over East Lancashire rivals Rovers since 1979, and moved them eight points clear in second place in the Championship.

The match started with a chicken on the pitch and Rovers had the first chance when Tom Heaton saved Jordan Rhodes’ header.

Burnley thought they were ahead after only seven minutes when Sam Vokes turned in Scott Arfield’s low cross, only to be denied by the offside flag.

MORE TOP STORIES:

Television replays appeared to show Vokes had been offside by inches. Arfield headed on to the roof of the net for the visitors but Rovers were ahead in the 24th minute as Jason Lowe whipped the ball into the box and Rhodes swivelled to fire low into the bottom corner.

Danny Ings had a fine chance to equaliser when he was played in by Craig Conway’s stray backpass, but Paul Robinson saved before the striker turned the rebound wide.

Rovers came close to moving 2-0 up at the other end when Ben Mee had to clear off the line from Lowe, although Burnley appealed for a penalty soon after half time as Ings went down under Grant Hanley’s challenge.

Rhodes had a golden opportunity to extend Rovers’ advantage when he was played clear by David Dunn, only to see his shot hit the post.

From there Burnley introduced Ross Wallace and with 17 minutes left the wide man swung in a free kick and defender Jason Shackell beat Robinson to the ball to head home – having also scored for the Clarets at Ewood 12 months ago.

The visitors were ahead only five minutes later as Wallace managed to poke the ball back into the danger area and fellow substitute Ashley Barnes teed up Ings to fire low past Robinson from 10 yards.

Heaton saved from Lowe and Rudy Gestede in the closing stages, but Rovers could not find an equaliser.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer said: "We're hugely disappointed to have lost. I thought it was harsh, but in football it is fine margins. Jordan Rhodes goes through one on one and hits the post. We are disappointed with the two goals we have conceded.

"My criticism of the side is that we have conceded two goals and the manner of the two goals.

"They [Burnley] are second in the league - you think they will get automatic promotion. That is what comes from having a settled squad like they do. It is something we have been working to and working very hard.

"My lads have to keep going. We have go again. People will probably write us off, but that is not the right thing to do. It is important we finish as strongly as we possibly can."

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: "I thought the lads delivered a fine performance.

"Credit to Blackburn - they made life very difficult as they would in a big game like this one.

"I said to the lads at half time: ‘Lads, we’re on the cusp of making history don’t worry about being 1-0 down.’

"I am absolutely delighted for the fans because they’ve waited a long time for this moment. The fans have been terrific for us all season.

"It is only significant because it’s another three points. We’ve got another big game coming on Wednesday I have said enjoy this evening make sure you rest easy and make sure you recover.

"The players need to stay calm and focussed as they are doing."

Varney was fine for 50 minutes or so if the idea was to confuse the opposition and then bring Gestede on to unsettle them. But no. Mr Indecisive sees the opposition make a double substitution and he just takes his cagoule off and wipes his glasses. Then, eventually, puts an unknown on because???

Are you being serious, there was only one team playing long ball tactics and it certainly wasn't the Rovers, for once it was us that was mugged.

All the best to Burnley, they rode their luck and it came off for them.

Anyone know where 'Fake Villa' & 'Bubble Pop FC' are these days?

Me neither?

Burnley have dominated this league all season so the no dads shouldn't be too surprised by today's result.

And please don't forget. You are STILL owned by chicken farmers, skint, massively in debt, about to be spanked by FFP both financially and with a transfer embargo. Your play off dream just ain't going to happen and next season you will more than likely be fighting relegation.

Burnley FC the biggest East Lancs club by far!

Managed to find a pub in Zurich showing the match, surrounded by neutrals, all saying 2 rubbish teams playing poor football, well contested but probably true, except for Dunny not much quality on show. Rovers should have won, but 2 goalkeeper mistakes, panic in defence and a poor substitution have cost us a valuable 3 points. I can't believe burnley have played worse this year and still come away with the win,

Clear that it's too early for the play offs for rovers, burnley will deservedly be promoted but come straight back down. With such a small fan base their board will pay off the debt, pocket a few quid, no investment in players by they will have a year in the limelight.

GB please be a bit more positive next year, gestede on for Dunny and we win the game.5

Robinson was to blame for the defeat for me and I can't understand why GB didn't play his target man Gestede what is wrong with you Gary do you not believe in having a target man in your team.As soon as Dunn went off we had no one to hold the ball in there half.

Clear that it's too early for the play offs for rovers, burnley will deservedly be promoted but come straight back down. With such a small fan base their board will pay off the debt, pocket a few quid, no investment in players by they will have a year in the limelight.

GB please be a bit more positive next year, gestede on for Dunny and we win the game.5

Decent Rovers fans have come on here and swallowed their pride to congratulate their Bitter rivals and for that we're grateful.

So you managed to find a pub open in Zurich and the Swiss thought the two teams were rubbish. Did you tell them it was a local Derby match with a lot at stake for one team – the one that is going to get promoted – so it was hardly going to be a classic. And what would the Swiss know about emotion and in fact football. Did you ask them about the Madrid Derby last week? No thought not it was dire. Burnley did what Burnley do – win.

Ah the happy clappy, Venkys appologist brigade have spoken "we've lost, again, we can't go up now but don't worry (all you long suffering Venky loathing, Rovers fan majority) but we'll get there next season". You sound like Paul Angnew when he was employed to spount this moronic rubbish (at least he was paid to spout this cr@p).

Yes GB has given us stability this season but you are mixing "stabilty" with "real progress", especially when you consider that last season was complete meltdown.

This current Rovers squad is MILES AWAY from being a top 2 team. Under Venkys there has been a slow but steady dumbing down of quality & depth within the Rovers squad - this will almost certainly continue in the next 12 months, if not worsen rapidly.

Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley apart the rest are either reasonable, average championship players or worse.

Given that we will shortly lose another £8m in TV revenues the overall savings the club HAS to make this year but be at least £20m.

How do they do that without selling at least 2 of their 3 best players AND at the same time improve the squad in other areas if we are going to be a top 2 side - like you say.

Now factor in that we will almost certainly endure a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 which will have a devastating effect on the playing side of the club and which we will have to remain until we conform with the FFP.

Given all these FACTS, I'd love you to explain to me how GB is going to be able to get us into the top 2 next season.

If he achieves that against our financial back drop then surely he deserves to be a future next Real Madrid manager.

I'm not being funny L_P, I'd love you to explain how Shaw/Bowyer can achieve promotion given everything that we KNOW has to be done (both to comply with FL rules and to ensure the medium and longterm future of BRFC).

Probably the most sensible and realistic post from a Blackburn fan on here. I can't be ar**d with all the tit for tat "my dad's bigger than your dad" rubbish that normally goes on here. For the ones criticising either team's playing standard today, how often, in a derby game, do you actually see good, free flowing football? In the end, we wanted it more.

The long term financial future of Rovers isn't good, whether the Venkys stay as owners or not. Next season isn't going to be a "rebuilding" season for you, it's more likely to be a relegation battle, if not next season, in the next couple.

If, and I do say If, Burnley do get into the Prem, that's also what will face us until we do come back down from the Championship. But our finances won't be in anything like the mess Rover's will be by then. You've a lot further to go down yet, but in the end, you WILL get your club, and therefore your pride, back.

I can't be ar**d with all the tit for tat "my dad's bigger than your dad" rubbish that normally goes on here. For the ones criticising either team's playing standard today, how often, in a derby game, do you actually see good, free flowing football? In the end, we wanted it more. The long term financial future of Rovers isn't good, whether the Venkys stay as owners or not. Next season isn't going to be a "rebuilding" season for you, it's more likely to be a relegation battle, if not next season, in the next couple. If, and I do say If, Burnley do get into the Prem, that's also what will face us until we do come back down from the Championship. But our finances won't be in anything like the mess Rover's will be by then. You've a lot further to go down yet, but in the end, you WILL get your club, and therefore your pride, back. masher50

Ah the happy clappy, Venkys appologist brigade have spoken "we've lost, again, we can't go up now but don't worry (all you long suffering Venky loathing, Rovers fan majority) but we'll get there next season". You sound like Paul Angnew when he was employed to spount this moronic rubbish (at least he was paid to spout this cr@p).

Yes GB has given us stability this season but you are mixing "stabilty" with "real progress", especially when you consider that last season was complete meltdown.

This current Rovers squad is MILES AWAY from being a top 2 team. Under Venkys there has been a slow but steady dumbing down of quality & depth within the Rovers squad - this will almost certainly continue in the next 12 months, if not worsen rapidly.

Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley apart the rest are either reasonable, average championship players or worse.

Given that we will shortly lose another £8m in TV revenues the overall savings the club HAS to make this year but be at least £20m.

I'm assuming ,by Venky appologists,you mean anyone on here who still watches Rovers.
That said,anyone who has watched them this season knows we have no chance of being in the top 2 next season.
So I don't know where you've got that from.

Still in the pub, Wigan look miles better than rovers and burnley, it looks like a premiership game, if Rosler had taken over at the beginning of the season Wigan would have easily won the championship. Wigan 100/30 to get promoted along with Leicester and burnley looks a good bet.

I will believe it when I see it.
"It will effect the majority of top teams next year" - it won't effect the 3 that get relegated from the PL.

And also it won't effect QPR as they only came down last season and so they will have another year to either go up or get their finances in order.

Also, you are wrong, the vast majority of clubs in the FL will NOT fail their FFP - they have been planning for its introduction and cutting their cloth accordingly.

Rovers have been mismanaged by Venkys and so have not put in the longterm financial planning that would have enabled us to comply.

Bolton may face a transfer embargo - I don't know (its not the debt you owe it about the yearly losses you're making) but who cares about Bolton. We are Rovers fans and should be worried about Rovers having a transfer embargo.

Hi JC
I actually said "we are not quite good enough" if and it's a big if, if we make the same progress next season we should be up there.
With my glass half full not half empty lets look at the positives and with people like DD around it's hard to see them sometimes, the owners as bad as they have been they have pumped millions (most of it wasted) but they continue to do so, the club is at least stable now, then going forward,
GB, is he the man to take us there? well he was great at stabilising our club but yes he now needs to step up as a manager, his tactics IMO are negative at times, but then he seems to be buying them young and hungry, one or two have not made it but the Venkys are bank rolling him so far, with this policy I see a good future, again only my opinion, GB should use the rest of this season to try out who is going to make it and start being a bit more positive, again a learning prossess for him, Leister gave there manager time and that's paid dividends, let's hope we can do the same, going for my second glass of wine, the first one did not kill the pain!!!!

A lot to be done for Rovers rebuilding. Too many individual errors today. Have to say the Lowe, Spurr and Conway not good enough in my opinion to be in the team for long term. Need Cairney back to partner Evans in middle of park soon.

Darener, I was there and enjoyed the game. When Rhodes scored the reaction of your fans was as if they had just won the world cup. It mattered to them. I have to say, when the dust settles it is just 3 points and matters no more and no less than any other 3 points. You will recover.

Having said that, it's been used as a "stick" to banter with the Clarets most of the season. Not any more, I'm glad to say.

Got to say it as much as it's hurts, well done Burnley and good luck for promotion.
GB carry one the good work, we are not quite good enough this season, keep the rebuilding going and we will get there next year.
Once again Burnley well done.
Ah the happy clappy, Venkys appologist brigade have spoken "we've lost, again, we can't go up now but don't worry (all you long suffering Venky loathing, Rovers fan majority) but we'll get there next season". You sound like Paul Angnew when he was employed to spount this moronic rubbish (at least he was paid to spout this cr@p).

Yes GB has given us stability this season but you are mixing "stabilty" with "real progress", especially when you consider that last season was complete meltdown.

This current Rovers squad is MILES AWAY from being a top 2 team. Under Venkys there has been a slow but steady dumbing down of quality & depth within the Rovers squad - this will almost certainly continue in the next 12 months, if not worsen rapidly.

Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley apart the rest are either reasonable, average championship players or worse.

Given that we will shortly lose another £8m in TV revenues the overall savings the club HAS to make this year but be at least £20m.

How do they do that without selling at least 2 of their 3 best players AND at the same time improve the squad in other areas if we are going to be a top 2 side - like you say.

Now factor in that we will almost certainly endure a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 which will have a devastating effect on the playing side of the club and which we will have to remain until we conform with the FFP.

Given all these FACTS, I'd love you to explain to me how GB is going to be able to get us into the top 2 next season.

If he achieves that against our financial back drop then surely he deserves to be a future next Real Madrid manager.

I actually said "we are not quite good enough" if and it's a big if, if we make the same progress next season we should be up there.
With my glass half full not half empty lets look at the positives and with people like DD around it's hard to see them sometimes, the owners as bad as they have been they have pumped millions (most of it wasted) but they continue to do so, the club is at least stable now, then going forward,
GB, is he the man to take us there? well he was great at stabilising our club but yes he now needs to step up as a manager, his tactics IMO are negative at times, but then he seems to be buying them young and hungry, one or two have not made it but the Venkys are bank rolling him so far, with this policy I see a good future, again only my opinion, GB should use the rest of this season to try out who is going to make it and start being a bit more positive, again a learning prossess for him, Leister gave there manager time and that's paid dividends, let's hope we can do the same, going for my second glass of wine, the first one did not kill the pain!!!!

The more organised team who had a game plan and stuck to it - won.

Sadly the game was won and lost in the dug out - Dyche influenced the game he wasnt afriad to bring off Vokes and change things round. Bowyer brings off Dunn and replaces him with a player who only joined yesterday when Gestede who would have create problems in the box with his head was left on the bench until time had almost run out - beggars belief GB.

At least no worries about promotion this year we arent quite good enough and we need a settled side thats what Burnley have and it showed Gary. I am not sure BGB can take Rovers to the next level he has steadied ship but is he a winner ? if asked I would say NO -

Enjoy the premiership Burnley but I think you will need a lot more than what you showed today to survive.

No matter how you look at it Burnley were the better side and deserved the result. The biggest difference wasn't on the park, it was in the technical area and the fact that the better team had a proven, experienced manager and not a coach. As long as Venky's have a coach in charge rather than a proven, experienced manager Rovers will operate around the mid table championship level. I think Burnley have a good chance of that second automatic promotion spot but the number of mistakes made and got away with won't go unpunished in the premiership and I don't think we will have to wait too long till we play you again in the championship but enjoy your day, you deserve it and it's been a long time coming.

A scrappy game but the facts are that Burnley wanted it more - A rovers win would have put them 3 points from the play offs. Dunn being substituted swung the game for the clarets - but it was not a good game of free flowing football. Yet another monkey off our back but the most important thing is the 3 points really - 8 points clear of 3rd is a big gap!! so every chance of promotion now - Its still a long way from a done deal though as there are some very difficult fixtures to come - even the ones that look easy on paper become harder as teams at the bottom fight for their lives!!! Wigan and Leicester games to come at home, Reading away - we have breathing space but it will still be tough. If we do go up though the riches of the premier league (so much higher than last time) would secure our medium term future and 'the ginger Mourinho ' will have cash to spend - Steven Fletcher return?? 5 or 6 decent incomings and you never know - if Hull can do it? - We do have the spine of a decent team however - I had no expectations this year other than to hope to avoid relegation - Our lads and the manager have been simply outstanding this year and a take my hat of to them. - I wish Rovers all the best for the future and hope they do avoid any financial meltdown - Burnley going up this year would be one of the most amazing football achievements in modern football - So beware our manager will be in demand!!

Yes GB has given us stability this season but you are mixing "stabilty" with "real progress", especially when you consider that last season was complete meltdown.

This current Rovers squad is MILES AWAY from being a top 2 team. Under Venkys there has been a slow but steady dumbing down of quality & depth within the Rovers squad - this will almost certainly continue in the next 12 months, if not worsen rapidly.

Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley apart the rest are either reasonable, average championship players or worse.

Given that we will shortly lose another £8m in TV revenues the overall savings the club HAS to make this year but be at least £20m.

How do they do that without selling at least 2 of their 3 best players AND at the same time improve the squad in other areas if we are going to be a top 2 side - like you say.

Now factor in that we will almost certainly endure a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 which will have a devastating effect on the playing side of the club and which we will have to remain until we conform with the FFP.

Given all these FACTS, I'd love you to explain to me how GB is going to be able to get us into the top 2 next season.

If he achieves that against our financial back drop then surely he deserves to be a future next Real Madrid manager.

I'm not being funny L_P, I'd love you to explain how Shaw/Bowyer can achieve promotion given everything that we KNOW has to be done (both to comply with FL rules and to ensure the medium and longterm future of BRFC).
Hi JC
I actually said "we are not quite good enough" if and it's a big if, if we make the same progress next season we should be up there.
With my glass half full not half empty lets look at the positives and with people like DD around it's hard to see them sometimes, the owners as bad as they have been they have pumped millions (most of it wasted) but they continue to do so, the club is at least stable now, then going forward,
GB, is he the man to take us there? well he was great at stabilising our club but yes he now needs to step up as a manager, his tactics IMO are negative at times, but then he seems to be buying them young and hungry, one or two have not made it but the Venkys are bank rolling him so far, with this policy I see a good future, again only my opinion, GB should use the rest of this season to try out who is going to make it and start being a bit more positive, again a learning prossess for him, Leister gave there manager time and that's paid dividends, let's hope we can do the same, going for my second glass of wine, the first one did not kill the pain!!!!

I'm not being funny L_P, I'd love you to explain how Shaw/Bowyer can achieve promotion given everything that we KNOW has to be done (both to comply with FL rules and to ensure the medium and longterm future of BRFC).[/p][/quote]Hi JC I actually said "we are not quite good enough" if and it's a big if, if we make the same progress next season we should be up there. With my glass half full not half empty lets look at the positives and with people like DD around it's hard to see them sometimes, the owners as bad as they have been they have pumped millions (most of it wasted) but they continue to do so, the club is at least stable now, then going forward, GB, is he the man to take us there? well he was great at stabilising our club but yes he now needs to step up as a manager, his tactics IMO are negative at times, but then he seems to be buying them young and hungry, one or two have not made it but the Venkys are bank rolling him so far, with this policy I see a good future, again only my opinion, GB should use the rest of this season to try out who is going to make it and start being a bit more positive, again a learning prossess for him, Leister gave there manager time and that's paid dividends, let's hope we can do the same, going for my second glass of wine, the first one did not kill the pain!!!![/p][/quote]Try bleach.[/p][/quote]Out of order that Seagull wicklow

Terrific atmosphere today. Good luck to the Dingles, a nice moment in the sunshine for them. They're having a great season and automatic promotions theirs for the taking now.

I'd only seen them on TV previously, was impressed, so slightly disappointed today that there wasn't any individual flair. Lump into the middle and get numbers in to pick up the pieces and pressurise, but hey it works.

Thought we gave the ball away an awful lot and contributed to our own downfall, perhaps. If we can have freedom from injuries we can mount a serious push next season, hopefully.

Hope the Dingles go straight up now tbh.

For Rovers fans, keep the faith. We've had bad days recently and there may be worse to come. But better a Blue than a Plastic, anytime!

NO SURRENDER!

It matters to me Darener! Some Roverites have come on here and said its spolied their weekend. WHAT? Spoilt their weekend? I wish that was all it had spolied for me. It has spoilt the bragging rights of the last three decades. Whatever Burnley fans said about our bad moments (Like Venkys and Kean and Chickens) then we could always throw the long standing no losses record back in their faces (and we often did)! It was absolutely gut churning and heart-wrenching to see my beloved Blue and Whites get beaten by Burnley. It really doesnt matter who is where in the table, or who is in form, or who plays for who, all that matters tonight and for the rest of this season, is that we got beat by our most detested and bitter local rivals.....

Plus - it is the first time in my sons life (and he`s 33!) that he has ever seen the Rovers get beaten by the Clarets...!

Still I suppose one defeat every 34.5 years isn`t too bad, not a bad record in the modern game. It will be a cold day in hell before they beat us again!

Less of the appeasement and false sentiment on here from Rovers fans - I will hate Burnley b*st*rds till my dying day!

It's painful at the moment and no-one ever thought it was coming when we were leagues apart not so long ago, but it's done, we can stop bleating about 35 years (or 9 games depending on where you sit) and move on. Well done to burnley, not sure any team deserved to win but they found a way to, as they have done so often this season. It has been shown how organisation, strong tactics. togetherness and no lack of quality can take you far in this division. Rovers need to regroup and go on a run but really keep building for next season. Bowyer and the players will learn from this. Good luck to both teams for the rest of the season (and yes I'm a rovers fan of over 20 years but credit where credit Is due!!)

Are you being serious, there was only one team playing long ball tactics and it certainly wasn't the Rovers, for once it was us that was mugged.

All the best to Burnley, they rode their luck and it came off for them.

The cream always rises to the top , we will always be superior to the Dingles and our turn will come again.
You're deluded!!!

Like I've said previously this is a team made up of cobbled together journey men,not fit for purpose in this league and to say we have made progress is debatable,we have shipped out one load of mediocrity players to replace them with another load, Dunny is finished and to keep nursing him back for a half game cameo role every blue moon is ridiculous,is Gary the man for the job I've nothing against him but as yet he doesn't give me that buzz that air of expectancy I've had with other appointments and then there's the Venkys the faceless wonders who haven't the decency to look us in the eye what the future holds for next season remains to be seen

Dyche 2. Bowyer 1. The game turned on tactics and substitutions and the ginger one gave the apprentice a good hiding. Most neutrals like David will acknowledge that this was just about a fair result today. Gestede on far too late, Henley on far too early. No doubt Todd Kane will return to Chelsea and pick up a Champions League medal when Henley is playing for Accrington.
Burnley will now go on to automatic promotion and the most embarrassing season in their history.
Rovers will continue to consolidate under Gary Bowyer and provided we get our injured players fit again for the start of next season we can give target the playoffs with confidence.
The volume of support from loyal fans today at least proved that we can thrive without the ex supporters.

Very good and thanks. Well there will be a lot of beer and ‘bene’ drunk tonight in the Burnley area and the canal will be used as a convenience.

On paper Scumly were heaps better going into his game, on the pitch they were in awe of our remarkable lasting record which resulted in them being quite poor with many bad passes. Their fans could sense the lack of quality of their players and kept their gobs shut, I have seen them play much better.
Rover's players upped their game and were more than a match for Scumly until tiredness kicked in. Dunn was done for when he came off and he probably took with him a great spirit that he injected into our game but, with a makeshift team who had not played together before, the opposition got their lucky break. Robbo didn't have his best game, but that might be due to having unknowns in front of him.
They ground out their win which came as a shock to their supporters after seeing such a below par performance but that was soon forgotten by the cheap glory hunters brigade.
In a nerve racking derby game, a fair result would of been a draw.

Good luck burnley, you deserve your time in the spotlight.[/p][/quote]well done for an honest and true post, wouldnt dare to think of what your player wage bill is, but seen your lot a few times and have to say you are average at best, we are the best team in lancs with probably the smallest squad and wage bill in the whole league, a bit to go but we are in a good spot, just think your cup final next season could be PNE zzzzzzzzzz UTC spudpaul61

It matters to me Darener! Some Roverites have come on here and said its spolied their weekend. WHAT? Spoilt their weekend? I wish that was all it had spolied for me. It has spoilt the bragging rights of the last three decades. Whatever Burnley fans said about our bad moments (Like Venkys and Kean and Chickens) then we could always throw the long standing no losses record back in their faces (and we often did)! It was absolutely gut churning and heart-wrenching to see my beloved Blue and Whites get beaten by Burnley. It really doesnt matter who is where in the table, or who is in form, or who plays for who, all that matters tonight and for the rest of this season, is that we got beat by our most detested and bitter local rivals.....

Plus - it is the first time in my sons life (and he`s 33!) that he has ever seen the Rovers get beaten by the Clarets...!

Still I suppose one defeat every 34.5 years isn`t too bad, not a bad record in the modern game. It will be a cold day in hell before they beat us again!

Less of the appeasement and false sentiment on here from Rovers fans - I will hate Burnley b*st*rds till my dying day!
Oh dear. A very bitter and twisted no dad. Mrs (or Mr) French Rover should be concerned for her safety tonight.


If you cry about it that might help.

I hope your very soul is burning right now.

It must hurt to be a b@stard at the moment. Enjoy what's left of your mid table season before FFP pulls your pants down and rams you right up the 'arris.
Sounding very much like Look Up Venkys.

"And can someone please tell the players that, if they have the ball, they should pass it to someone on our own team!!"

its as simple as it sounds if you have the ball the other teams cant score, saying that the players at the back need to be more composed on the ball, if the players arent comfortable handling the football under pressure when an opposing player closing you down find a replacement , ideally you'd want someone bearing down on you, with a bit of skill and passing you can take them out of the game, with a few quick passes you are bearing down on their back line ready to shoot at goal.

Ah the happy clappy, Venkys appologist brigade have spoken "we've lost, again, we can't go up now but don't worry (all you long suffering Venky loathing, Rovers fan majority) but we'll get there next season". You sound like Paul Angnew when he was employed to spount this moronic rubbish (at least he was paid to spout this cr@p).

Yes GB has given us stability this season but you are mixing "stabilty" with "real progress", especially when you consider that last season was complete meltdown.

This current Rovers squad is MILES AWAY from being a top 2 team. Under Venkys there has been a slow but steady dumbing down of quality & depth within the Rovers squad - this will almost certainly continue in the next 12 months, if not worsen rapidly.

Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley apart the rest are either reasonable, average championship players or worse.

Given that we will shortly lose another £8m in TV revenues the overall savings the club HAS to make this year but be at least £20m.

How do they do that without selling at least 2 of their 3 best players AND at the same time improve the squad in other areas if we are going to be a top 2 side - like you say.

Now factor in that we will almost certainly endure a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 which will have a devastating effect on the playing side of the club and which we will have to remain until we conform with the FFP.

Given all these FACTS, I'd love you to explain to me how GB is going to be able to get us into the top 2 next season.

If he achieves that against our financial back drop then surely he deserves to be a future next Real Madrid manager.

I'm not being funny L_P, I'd love you to explain how Shaw/Bowyer can achieve promotion given everything that we KNOW has to be done (both to comply with FL rules and to ensure the medium and longterm future of BRFC).
Hi JC
I actually said "we are not quite good enough" if and it's a big if, if we make the same progress next season we should be up there.
With my glass half full not half empty lets look at the positives and with people like DD around it's hard to see them sometimes, the owners as bad as they have been they have pumped millions (most of it wasted) but they continue to do so, the club is at least stable now, then going forward,
GB, is he the man to take us there? well he was great at stabilising our club but yes he now needs to step up as a manager, his tactics IMO are negative at times, but then he seems to be buying them young and hungry, one or two have not made it but the Venkys are bank rolling him so far, with this policy I see a good future, again only my opinion, GB should use the rest of this season to try out who is going to make it and start being a bit more positive, again a learning prossess for him, Leister gave there manager time and that's paid dividends, let's hope we can do the same, going for my second glass of wine, the first one did not kill the pain!!!!

Why don't you cry about it and see if that helps?

The fact you're still mentioning the play offs shows how utterly deluded you are.

Ah the happy clappy, Venkys appologist brigade have spoken "we've lost, again, we can't go up now but don't worry (all you long suffering Venky loathing, Rovers fan majority) but we'll get there next season". You sound like Paul Angnew when he was employed to spount this moronic rubbish (at least he was paid to spout this cr@p).

Yes GB has given us stability this season but you are mixing "stabilty" with "real progress", especially when you consider that last season was complete meltdown.

This current Rovers squad is MILES AWAY from being a top 2 team. Under Venkys there has been a slow but steady dumbing down of quality & depth within the Rovers squad - this will almost certainly continue in the next 12 months, if not worsen rapidly.

Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley apart the rest are either reasonable, average championship players or worse.

Given that we will shortly lose another £8m in TV revenues the overall savings the club HAS to make this year but be at least £20m.

How do they do that without selling at least 2 of their 3 best players AND at the same time improve the squad in other areas if we are going to be a top 2 side - like you say.

Now factor in that we will almost certainly endure a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015 which will have a devastating effect on the playing side of the club and which we will have to remain until we conform with the FFP.

Given all these FACTS, I'd love you to explain to me how GB is going to be able to get us into the top 2 next season.

If he achieves that against our financial back drop then surely he deserves to be a future next Real Madrid manager.

I'm not being funny L_P, I'd love you to explain how Shaw/Bowyer can achieve promotion given everything that we KNOW has to be done (both to comply with FL rules and to ensure the medium and longterm future of BRFC).
Hi JC
I actually said "we are not quite good enough" if and it's a big if, if we make the same progress next season we should be up there.
With my glass half full not half empty lets look at the positives and with people like DD around it's hard to see them sometimes, the owners as bad as they have been they have pumped millions (most of it wasted) but they continue to do so, the club is at least stable now, then going forward,
GB, is he the man to take us there? well he was great at stabilising our club but yes he now needs to step up as a manager, his tactics IMO are negative at times, but then he seems to be buying them young and hungry, one or two have not made it but the Venkys are bank rolling him so far, with this policy I see a good future, again only my opinion, GB should use the rest of this season to try out who is going to make it and start being a bit more positive, again a learning prossess for him, Leister gave there manager time and that's paid dividends, let's hope we can do the same, going for my second glass of wine, the first one did not kill the pain!!!!

Well well well. I said it before the game and I was right. David "the Kebab Slayer" Dunn wants nothing to do with Blackburn Rovers when Burnley come to town. He saw us take a foothold in the game and couldn't signal to the bench to get him off quick enough... "Owwww my hamstring get me off", I believe were his words... What an absolute coward, hiding in the dressing room at full time.


Shame he had to end up on the losing side in his last ever derby game.

Rover's players upped their game and were more than a match for Scumly until tiredness kicked in. Dunn was done for when he came off and he probably took with him a great spirit that he injected into our game but, with a makeshift team who had not played together before, the opposition got their lucky break. Robbo didn't have his best game, but that might be due to having unknowns in front of him.
They ground out their win which came as a shock to their supporters after seeing such a below par performance but that was soon forgotten by the cheap glory hunters brigade.
In a nerve racking derby game, a fair result would of been a draw.
Until you scored we were on top. The fact you got tired has been a key part of Burnley's strength all season. We play for the full 90 with grit, determination and togetherness. That was the key difference.

Rover's players upped their game and were more than a match for Scumly until tiredness kicked in. Dunn was done for when he came off and he probably took with him a great spirit that he injected into our game but, with a makeshift team who had not played together before, the opposition got their lucky break.

Are you being serious, there was only one team playing long ball tactics and it certainly wasn't the Rovers, for once it was us that was mugged.

All the best to Burnley, they rode their luck and it came off for them.

The cream always rises to the top , we will always be superior to the Dingles and our turn will come again.
Superior to the mighty clarets, you are as deluded as the stupid old money bags got is dead........your bank balance is reliant on chicken farmers that know as much about football as the chicken thrown onto the pitch after 50 seconds.

Woevers have played the clarets 11 times in your 34.5 years, it is now 5 years and counting since you beat the real powerhouse of East Lancashire BURNLEY.

Your money has gone, you're in financial meltdown and facing football oblivion.

Your "Cold day in hell" may be the next time you play us (Assuming you draw us in the cup of course) which could be some time.

I hope you all enjoy yourselves in the 3rd and then probably the 4th division.

Like most I thought Rovers were far too defensive yesterday and just invited Burnley forward especially second half so their goals were no surprise even though both were down in part to poor defending.
Really fustrated Bowyers first priority seems to be not to lose, we were at home against Burnley and one up top! even my Burnley mates were surprised Gestede was on the bench with Dunn getting the sentimental nod Dunny's a legend but truthfully only a short burst impact player now and shouldn't have started.
Now that the play offs are more or less a pipe dream ( Wigan my bet ) GB should grow a pair and play a more attacking formation and see how we go from now, at least it'll be better to watch. I hope he learns as would like him to succeed at Rovers.
You couldn't fault the effort of the players and as someone rightly said earlier when do you ever get free flowing derby games but the dire hoof ball was worse than the BFS days.
Although it pains me to say it good luck to Burnley, I like their team ethic and should they go up, which is pretty certain I hope they give the team that gets them there a crack in the Prem. Ings is not stop and at 21 will only get better.
Holloway admitted his mistake at Palace was introducing too many new players and he felt the team spirit was lost.
Makes me laugh that everyone goes on about how we only won the premier league because of Jack Walker, what did you expect us to say ? no thanks Jack we'd rather carry on struggling and hopefully one day get a season in the premier league but at least we can hold our heads high and say we did it the right and moral way as we're only a small town club ! ...
That money maybe long gone but what a ride it was and no one can ever take that away from us not forgotting 18 years of top flight football.
Dust ourselves down and go again eh lads.
Thought the Rovers fans on this site yesterday showed class in defeat despite the pain and expected stick that would come our way, we've certainly dished it out over the years though!
Keep the faith

You are right Peely, too many Rovers fans on here mistake "stabilty" for "progress". Also they only look at the playing side not BRFC as a whole.

Don't get me wrong, I think that overall GB on the football side and Shaw on the financial side have both done a decent job in the last few months but they can't do th impossible.

PROGRESS - Well, we have stability and we are slightly higher in mid table than we were last year (which was a complete, freaky, meltdown season).

But - the squad is the WORST for 20 years, the majority of the players are average (at best), IF we lost Rhodes and Hanley then that squad would be terrible. Also, without Cairney or Dunns 5 games a season there is NO quality.
Our debt has increased and increases daily, our revenues continue to fall. Venkys pump money into the club to prop it up on a day to day basis (good) but even with this cash we will need to find around £20m in savings this summer and even with that we will be facing a transfer embargo on 1st Jan 2015.

Progress?, if there has been any it has been tiny incomparison with the progress that is needed given the terrible mismanagement from the first 2 years of Venkys ownership.

If we can ride out the next 2 seasons without getting relegated then maybe we can get back to the point where we started from when Venkys first bought us.

Sad times indeed, made all the more dificult for us when we see our 6 fingered fiends doing so well on the back of tight fiscal management and profesionals running the club, both on and off the field. It is a lesson we may have started to learn but so much needs to be done it'll take 3 or 4 years for Rovers to get its financial house in order.

what a load of twaddle written on here by both sets of fans.

reality is that we did what we have been doing since the first days of steve kean (and to a lesser extent allardyce) - we go a goal up against a decent side and then sit back thinking that we can hold the lead for a full second half - the second that jordan hit the post you kind of suspected that would cost us.

rovers are not a 90 minute side - for whatever reason we always run out of puff after about 70-75mins - burnley, regrettably, under dyche are a much fitter AND TOGETHER side coupled with very disciplined.

let's be honest this has been coming in the last couple of seasons - let them, for once, enjoy their day in the sunshine - they will go up.....but if they keep hold of ings and the other one they will have nowhere near as much time on the ball against prem defenders....but fair play to them - they are where they are on merit.

blooming hope that our team develops some spine. there were times yesterday when we couldn't pass the ball 5yds without it going astray. also whilst i dont blame that millwall lad for the defeat - getting booked within 10 seconds of coming on showed he had no idea what was going on.

it is with a sad heart that we fell yesterday - but we will be back. defeat is difficult to take against them - but let us not get used to it.

Well its been an outstanding year for Burnley once in a generation they can beat us in the dying minutes although even with a poor side we could have won it.I hope they go up as I said on here two weeks ago they would beat us as they are better organised and have two decent strikers.I do believe our turn will come around again and I don't care about not losing for 35 years to them as the big picture of getting in the Premiership and actually staying there is much more important than our rivalry.

Burnley have dominated this league all season so the no dads shouldn't be too surprised by today's result.

And please don't forget. You are STILL owned by chicken farmers, skint, massively in debt, about to be spanked by FFP both financially and with a transfer embargo. Your play off dream just ain't going to happen and next season you will more than likely be fighting relegation.

Burnley FC the biggest East Lancs club by far!
You deserved it and although you've had that bit of luck with injuries this season anyone who gets promoted needs it so fair play. You've been superb all season.
Now's not the time to go into who's the biggest club but considering where you've been all season and where we've been all season and that our average attendance is 14869 and yours is 12820 we'll leave that well alone!

When you spend most of the game defending - then you cannot sustain it over 90 minutes. When attacking this doesnt normally involve the whole team so when combining defending with attack at some stage the players get a breather.
Try defending solidly as a unit for 90 mins its knackering when you haven't played week in week out. It doesn't matter who hard you train you can only consistently last 90 mins when you play 90 mins each week. Burnley's team are very match fit what was it 9 games unchanged ? I reckon Hanley, Dunn and Evans were not 100% fit plus add in players that have no consistent game time and the result is what happens. Rovers simply ran out of steam.

You will ALWAYS be superior, despite the fact we've been on top this season and last, and look as though we're heading up to the top flight? Give over.

We played pretty woefully yesterday, but that defines a good team that can rally together and still come away with a win. Well done lads.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.

I have to say that I agree with this. Burnley were not on-song yesterday. What turned it was Dyche and his clever use of Wallace. Barnes is short of match fitness but is a neat passer of the ball in tight situations. To take off Vokes and put on Barnes to fulfil that role helped open you up up twice. GB should have responded to this, but he didn't.

I sincerely hope that you get to the playoffs and win through. Being in the Prem will open up the Venky wallet! Keeping this derby match tradition, and playing it more often (!) would be smashing.

what a load of twaddle written on here by both sets of fans.

reality is that we did what we have been doing since the first days of steve kean (and to a lesser extent allardyce) - we go a goal up against a decent side and then sit back thinking that we can hold the lead for a full second half - the second that jordan hit the post you kind of suspected that would cost us.

rovers are not a 90 minute side - for whatever reason we always run out of puff after about 70-75mins - burnley, regrettably, under dyche are a much fitter AND TOGETHER side coupled with very disciplined.

let's be honest this has been coming in the last couple of seasons - let them, for once, enjoy their day in the sunshine - they will go up.....but if they keep hold of ings and the other one they will have nowhere near as much time on the ball against prem defenders....but fair play to them - they are where they are on merit.

blooming hope that our team develops some spine. there were times yesterday when we couldn't pass the ball 5yds without it going astray. also whilst i dont blame that millwall lad for the defeat - getting booked within 10 seconds of coming on showed he had no idea what was going on.

it is with a sad heart that we fell yesterday - but we will be back. defeat is difficult to take against them - but let us not get used to it.
Twaddle you say? After you and FR came on here a month ago putting the boot in Sam Allardyce when things were difficult at West Ham! It seems to me that we have not seen a Rovers team as organised, tactically aware or as motivated since Big Sam was at the helm. Ask Dunny for his views. He has articulated as much on TV. This defeat to those bastards down the road is the latest ramification of the arrogant Venkys decisions to carry out one the worst managerial sacking in our history. I recall Morst declaring he would draw his curtains rather than watch a Big Sam Rovers outfit in action. Hope you aesthetes enjoyed a clear view of this gut wrenching defeat.

Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.

You know you have a good point about match fitness and maintaining it through a season. I have a friend an ex-Rover’s player who reckons that it’s down to more than luck but complete management of the players 24/7. Maybe he has a point as I know that Sean Dyche has dieticians and psychologist etc – maybe Blackburn do I don’t know – but Dyche has got it right all season. It is no co-incidence that they have come back in the second half many times stronger than the opposition. Now though they have two games a week and that’s going to be tough.

When attacking this doesnt normally involve the whole team so when combining defending with attack at some stage the players get a breather. Try defending solidly as a unit for 90 mins its knackering when you haven't played week in week out. It doesn't matter who hard you train you can only consistently last 90 mins when you play 90 mins each week. Burnley's team are very match fit what was it 9 games unchanged ? I reckon Hanley, Dunn and Evans were not 100% fit plus add in players that have no consistent game time and the result is what happens. Rovers simply ran out of steam.[/p][/quote]You know you have a good point about match fitness and maintaining it through a season. I have a friend an ex-Rover’s player who reckons that it’s down to more than luck but complete management of the players 24/7. Maybe he has a point as I know that Sean Dyche has dieticians and psychologist etc – maybe Blackburn do I don’t know – but Dyche has got it right all season. It is no co-incidence that they have come back in the second half many times stronger than the opposition. Now though they have two games a week and that’s going to be tough. tall in the saddle

Well done Burnley - after the luck we have had in the last two derby's it's an overdue win for you.

Shame that this is getting spoiled by some of your fans ignoring Rovers congratulating you and replying with petty comments about how superior you are. We are not in your shadow, as you haven't created one big enough yet.

Yes you have taken away our 35 year 'comfort blanket', well done to the Claret fans that deserve this praise, not the ones singing about Jack Walker's death, or the trolls on here that really are a waste of oxygen.

28th March 2010, I work that out to be 4 years, although this is very likely to be 5 years next year, please learn to count.

As for the match itself, it turned on it's head once Dunn was substituted, really poor tactics from Bowyer, although Dunn couldn't continue, their was better options than Feeney.

Conway and Hanley were class throughout, Rhodes unlucky to hit the post, but Henley was dire. Every time he was near the ball I was nervous he would give it away. Kane far better for me.

Clearly missing Marshall and Cairney, once we get those two back we can make a decent run for a top ten finish (playoffs out of reach now), and onwards for next season.

Would love to see Dunn take his coaching badges and look to manage in the future, his passion for this club is second to one (Jack Walker!)

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.

Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.
How did it feel when that final whistle went and you GOT BEAT BY BURNLEY!

Have to agree with you there old man, Bowyer has proven time and time again that he just can't manage a team. His signings, selections, substitutions, and analysis of the game are WOEFUL.

If you want to make progress then Venky's will have to hold their hands up and admit they got it wrong AGAIN and try to bring in a manager who's got half an idea what's going on.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha - here he is Fake Villa/Bubble Pop FC with his latest nom de plume.

No midfield? Jones and Marney ran the show yesterday

tell me about the luck we have had this season? Is it luck that we have the best two strikers in the league? The second best defence, the second best goal difference which is worth an extra point? Or maybe it is lucky that we are unbeaten at home in a year?

And you can sit there an hope that we have a collapse in form and maybe the resurgence of QPR (Who are just the TEN points behind us now), but in reality and deep down you know this isn't going to happen.

Bless you, it must be so tough after dishing out the insults over the years to have to suck it up and take it on the chin that your bitter rivals are much better.

Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.
Roughly translated as:

Waaah, waaaah, waaaaah, booo hoooo.

Have to agree with you there old man, Bowyer has proven time and time again that he just can't manage a team. His signings, selections, substitutions, and analysis of the game are WOEFUL.

If you want to make progress then Venky's will have to hold their hands up and admit they got it wrong AGAIN and try to bring in a manager who's got half an idea what's going on.

Bowyer out.

Thanks ChrisP, believe it or not this is the first time I have been able to log on, I did say that England v Wales would get in the way, then other things piled up and by the time 11 pm last night arrived I was too knackered to be bothered.

After I have posted this I will wander down the rest of the threads. lol.

LP is a genuine guy from his posts and for him to be on here so soon and be honest doesn't deserve a reply like that, so hats off to you.

As for the game it was full of could have's, should have's, Burnley were fitter, physically stronger and better organised but Rovers did OK in my book, before the game I fully expected us to be 2 or 3 down by half time so for us to go in at half time was a real bonus.

To be honest not much between the teams on the pitch but the managers swung the game with their substitutions, again Dyche showed his experience and nerve while GB dithered, then made the wrong tactical decisions (not for the first time this season) we could see it coming.

The Chicken on the pitch thing was a bit naff, what had it done to deserve that? I hope the clown who brought it in gets done for animal cruelty, on the other side of the coin the guy in the chicken suit was brilliant and gave a lot of us a good laugh.

Well done to some of the from both sides who applauded both sets of fans, well done to some of the Rovers fans who stayed and applauded the Burnley players, pat on my back for that as well..

Because that is how sport should be.

So well done Burnley, I honestly hope you can push on and get promotion because as I have said all along the table never lies and the best teams always go up.

PS - I was there the last time you beat us, it hurt just as much both times!

what a load of twaddle written on here by both sets of fans.

reality is that we did what we have been doing since the first days of steve kean (and to a lesser extent allardyce) - we go a goal up against a decent side and then sit back thinking that we can hold the lead for a full second half - the second that jordan hit the post you kind of suspected that would cost us.

rovers are not a 90 minute side - for whatever reason we always run out of puff after about 70-75mins - burnley, regrettably, under dyche are a much fitter AND TOGETHER side coupled with very disciplined.

let's be honest this has been coming in the last couple of seasons - let them, for once, enjoy their day in the sunshine - they will go up.....but if they keep hold of ings and the other one they will have nowhere near as much time on the ball against prem defenders....but fair play to them - they are where they are on merit.

blooming hope that our team develops some spine. there were times yesterday when we couldn't pass the ball 5yds without it going astray. also whilst i dont blame that millwall lad for the defeat - getting booked within 10 seconds of coming on showed he had no idea what was going on.

it is with a sad heart that we fell yesterday - but we will be back. defeat is difficult to take against them - but let us not get used to it.
Twaddle you say? After you and FR came on here a month ago putting the boot in Sam Allardyce when things were difficult at West Ham! It seems to me that we have not seen a Rovers team as organised, tactically aware or as motivated since Big Sam was at the helm. Ask Dunny for his views. He has articulated as much on TV. This defeat to those bastards down the road is the latest ramification of the arrogant Venkys decisions to carry out one the worst managerial sacking in our history. I recall Morst declaring he would draw his curtains rather than watch a Big Sam Rovers outfit in action. Hope you aesthetes enjoyed a clear view of this gut wrenching defeat.
bazzer - you need to get over your love for sam - he has gone, he ain't coming back.

i have elaborated on here previous why i totally despise sam allardyce and it is not principally about the way he managed or mis-managed rovers.

venkys sacking lardy and replacing him with kean should never have been an either/or decision. do you honestly think he would have stayed anyway with the venky regime - in many ways they did him a favour as he would have had his contract fully paid up. ask 90% of weztam fans what they think - i bet you know their response.

so, are you saying that if we would have had lardy in the technical area - we would have won yesterday? QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!

Some of us went to the game and had other things to do rather than watch it in the pub or from our armchair.

There are Burnley fans on here who talk more sense than you.

What do you expect Rovers (or for that matter Burnley) players to say before a game "Ohhh, we are terrified, we are going to play **** and get beaten 10-0"?

Part of their job is to communicate, "We feel great", "We are up for this", it might not be true but that's what real fans want to hear.

I really enjoyed the game, the atmosphere was terrific, OK the quality was lacking from both sides but what would you expect from a game like this?

The first two goals were well taken and Burnley got a lucky bounce for their second, that's football and sport in general.

And just to drive you into another spasm of hatred Jason Lowe was my man of the match.

And just to drive you into another spasm of hatred Jason Lowe was my man of the match. owd nick

I thought Lowe, Hanley and Rhodes looked good players, and Fatty Dunn caused problems first half by dropping deep, causing one of our Centre halves to follow him, thus creating space behind. He went off, and your chances disappeared with him.

Robinson is just useless, how he was in consideration for Championship Player of the Month for February God only knows.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.
Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.

It has spoilt the bragging rights of the last three decades. Whatever Burnley fans said about our bad moments (Like Venkys and Kean and Chickens) then we could always throw the long standing no losses record back in their faces (and we often did)! It was absolutely gut churning and heart-wrenching to see my beloved Blue and Whites get beaten by Burnley. It really doesnt matter who is where in the table, or who is in form, or who plays for who, all that matters tonight and for the rest of this season, is that we got beat by our most detested and bitter local rivals.....

Plus - it is the first time in my sons life (and he`s 33!) that he has ever seen the Rovers get beaten by the Clarets...!

Still I suppose one defeat every 34.5 years isn`t too bad, not a bad record in the modern game. It will be a cold day in hell before they beat us again!

Less of the appeasement and false sentiment on here from Rovers fans - I will hate Burnley b*st*rds till my dying day!
Woevers have played the clarets 11 times in your 34.5 years, it is now 5 years and counting since you beat the real powerhouse of East Lancashire BURNLEY.

Your money has gone, you're in financial meltdown and facing football oblivion.

Your "Cold day in hell" may be the next time you play us (Assuming you draw us in the cup of course) which could be some time.

I hope you all enjoy yourselves in the 3rd and then probably the 4th division.

Be careful what you wish for, the Venky's may just get fed up of bank-rolling your pitiful excuse for a football club and then my pond life friend, where will that leave you may I ask....??.?.

5 years and counting............

..........
I'm too busy counting the one and only year that you stay in the Premiership.........
We will probably pass you on our way up!

Thanks ChrisP, believe it or not this is the first time I have been able to log on, I did say that England v Wales would get in the way, then other things piled up and by the time 11 pm last night arrived I was too knackered to be bothered.

After I have posted this I will wander down the rest of the threads. lol.

LP is a genuine guy from his posts and for him to be on here so soon and be honest doesn't deserve a reply like that, so hats off to you.

As for the game it was full of could have's, should have's, Burnley were fitter, physically stronger and better organised but Rovers did OK in my book, before the game I fully expected us to be 2 or 3 down by half time so for us to go in at half time was a real bonus.

To be honest not much between the teams on the pitch but the managers swung the game with their substitutions, again Dyche showed his experience and nerve while GB dithered, then made the wrong tactical decisions (not for the first time this season) we could see it coming.

The Chicken on the pitch thing was a bit naff, what had it done to deserve that? I hope the clown who brought it in gets done for animal cruelty, on the other side of the coin the guy in the chicken suit was brilliant and gave a lot of us a good laugh.

Well done to some of the from both sides who applauded both sets of fans, well done to some of the Rovers fans who stayed and applauded the Burnley players, pat on my back for that as well..

Because that is how sport should be.

So well done Burnley, I honestly hope you can push on and get promotion because as I have said all along the table never lies and the best teams always go up.

PS - I was there the last time you beat us, it hurt just as much both times!
Rovers fans have slated the Dingles on here ever since I have been blogging on this site yet they are all on here now praising them and hoping they do well in the Premiership. I'm not a hypocrite and I hope they get an absolute thrashing week in week out, you can call It sour grapes if you like, I don't care!
I truly hope they are the laughing stock of the league

Ha ha ha ha ha ha - here he is Fake Villa/Bubble Pop FC with his latest nom de plume.

No midfield? Jones and Marney ran the show yesterday

tell me about the luck we have had this season? Is it luck that we have the best two strikers in the league? The second best defence, the second best goal difference which is worth an extra point? Or maybe it is lucky that we are unbeaten at home in a year?

And you can sit there an hope that we have a collapse in form and maybe the resurgence of QPR (Who are just the TEN points behind us now), but in reality and deep down you know this isn't going to happen.

Bless you, it must be so tough after dishing out the insults over the years to have to suck it up and take it on the chin that your bitter rivals are much better.
QPR are 9 points behind with a game in handso lets not get too overconfident, anything could happen and usually does to us.

Still I suppose one defeat every 34.5 years isn`t too bad, not a bad record in the modern game. It will be a cold day in hell before they beat us again!

Less of the appeasement and false sentiment on here from Rovers fans - I will hate Burnley b*st*rds till my dying day!
Woevers have played the clarets 11 times in your 34.5 years, it is now 5 years and counting since you beat the real powerhouse of East Lancashire BURNLEY.

Your money has gone, you're in financial meltdown and facing football oblivion.

Your "Cold day in hell" may be the next time you play us (Assuming you draw us in the cup of course) which could be some time.

I hope you all enjoy yourselves in the 3rd and then probably the 4th division.

Be careful what you wish for, the Venky's may just get fed up of bank-rolling your pitiful excuse for a football club and then my pond life friend, where will that leave you may I ask....??.?.

5 years and counting............


..........
I'm too busy counting the one and only year that you stay in the Premiership.........

We will probably pass you on our way up!
One and only??? So the last time we were there has been erased from your football history book then? As for passing us on the way up, don't make me laugh. There is always a chance we will come straight back down, as ALL promoted teams tend to struggle, but what gives you any confidence that you will in any way be involved in a promotion campaign next season? Your manager? Mr Motivator couldn't get an early riser out of bed! Your squad? What is all this hype about Rovers having a good squad and that it is even better than ours "on paper"? What "paper" would that be? In what department, anywhere on the pitch, are you superior to us? I wouldn't swap any one of our players for any of yours. Rhodes could come in as a back-up for the dynamic duo. Robinson wouldn't even get a game. What part of your defence is better than the second best defence in the championship? What have you got to compare to Trippier? How many of your midfielders regularly chip in with goals? We may struggle next season but one thing is for sure, we won't be an embarrassment, as we weren't last time out in the prem. The only danger for us is if we throw it away this season and don't go up. That will be a problem because we would almost certainly lose Ings, Trippier and possibly Dyche. You don't have that problem because nobody wants anything from your club.

If you showed as much dignity as he just did, you'd be much better thought of but as you seem unable to be a man about things, you're showing your total lack of character and you look weak and snidey.
Thanks ChrisP, believe it or not this is the first time I have been able to log on, I did say that England v Wales would get in the way, then other things piled up and by the time 11 pm last night arrived I was too knackered to be bothered.

After I have posted this I will wander down the rest of the threads. lol.

LP is a genuine guy from his posts and for him to be on here so soon and be honest doesn't deserve a reply like that, so hats off to you.

As for the game it was full of could have's, should have's, Burnley were fitter, physically stronger and better organised but Rovers did OK in my book, before the game I fully expected us to be 2 or 3 down by half time so for us to go in at half time was a real bonus.

To be honest not much between the teams on the pitch but the managers swung the game with their substitutions, again Dyche showed his experience and nerve while GB dithered, then made the wrong tactical decisions (not for the first time this season) we could see it coming.

The Chicken on the pitch thing was a bit naff, what had it done to deserve that? I hope the clown who brought it in gets done for animal cruelty, on the other side of the coin the guy in the chicken suit was brilliant and gave a lot of us a good laugh.

Well done to some of the from both sides who applauded both sets of fans, well done to some of the Rovers fans who stayed and applauded the Burnley players, pat on my back for that as well..

Because that is how sport should be.

So well done Burnley, I honestly hope you can push on and get promotion because as I have said all along the table never lies and the best teams always go up.

PS - I was there the last time you beat us, it hurt just as much both times!
Rovers fans have slated the Dingles on here ever since I have been blogging on this site yet they are all on here now praising them and hoping they do well in the Premiership. I'm not a hypocrite and I hope they get an absolute thrashing week in week out, you can call It sour grapes if you like, I don't care!
I truly hope they are the laughing stock of the league

Hi Kaz
Your slightly wrong, I have come on here giving as good as I got, no problems with that just good old banter, what ever I have said just happens to be how I feel at the time, however the points I made yesterday were genuine, remember this is only banter not life or death, enjoy your moment, that's what it's all about, I did when we went up, I'm no hypocrite just enjoy saying how it is, chill it's only a game but having said that it did hurt a lot yesterday I must say.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha - here he is Fake Villa/Bubble Pop FC with his latest nom de plume.

No midfield? Jones and Marney ran the show yesterday

tell me about the luck we have had this season? Is it luck that we have the best two strikers in the league? The second best defence, the second best goal difference which is worth an extra point? Or maybe it is lucky that we are unbeaten at home in a year?

And you can sit there an hope that we have a collapse in form and maybe the resurgence of QPR (Who are just the TEN points behind us now), but in reality and deep down you know this isn't going to happen.

Bless you, it must be so tough after dishing out the insults over the years to have to suck it up and take it on the chin that your bitter rivals are much better.
QPR are 9 points behind with a game in handso lets not get too overconfident, anything could happen and usually does to us.
Jones and Marney were well off the pace yesterday, Jones in particular - what did they actually contribute??

I don't think we have the best 2 strikers - possibly the best pairing so lets see what happens when one of them gets injured.

We were lucky against Derby and countless other times plus having so few injuries in particular.

Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.
How did it feel when that final whistle went and you GOT BEAT BY BURNLEY!

At Ewood Park!

Hahahahahaha!

23 points.
5 years.
Well, since you ask, not great tbh. Just think, if you keep it up for 30 more years, you will equal our proud record. Who knows, you might even win some silverware in the intervening years.
Nelson FC beat the mighty Real Madrid 4 - 2 in Madrid 91 years ago (May 1923) and Real haven't as yet been able to wreak revenge.
Makes your 35 years seem piddling and just as distorted as a statement of fact.

Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.
How did it feel when that final whistle went and you GOT BEAT BY BURNLEY!

At Ewood Park!

Well, since you ask, not great tbh. Just think, if you keep it up for 30 more years, you will equal our proud record. Who knows, you might even win some silverware in the intervening years.
Nelson FC beat the mighty Real Madrid 4 - 2 in Madrid 91 years ago (May 1923) and Real haven't as yet been able to wreak revenge.

Brilliant. Cause Madrid have played them another 10 times since. What an awesome comparison... 1979-2014 without a win isn't distortion, or lies, its fact.

My view is that Gestede should have started alongside Rhodes instead of Dunn .. Dunn brought on to do his usual later in the game ..

What clap trap these people come out with especially when GB and his team of freebies etc are unable to transfer words into action on the field of play - as I said long ago mid table or below and on current performances under the leadership of GB not much to look forward to next season either!!
OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS
.
.
As usual I have given the cynics and willy-wavers 24 hours to get their hysterics out of their systems but I will give you my view on the game, as opposed to the significance of the outcome.

Frankly I enjoyed the match (less so the result), this was proper championship football. Not slick premiership passing football, but a good committed end-to-end battle, too many unforced errors and bit heavy on the head tennis and long balls but played competitively, and a surprisingly good spirit, by two fairly even teams giving it 100%.

In the end, as so often happens in this league, the team that were slightly fitter and better organized took the points.

Not Robinsons best game, at fault for their first and dodgy in the build up to their second but also made an excellent save standing up to the lively Ings in the first half. Henley again looked weak and indecisive, and the usually solid Spurr was also dodgy defending. Personally I though Hanley and the excellent debutant Keane did a magnificent job of nullifying the threat of Vokes and Ings for the majority of the game, but both goals needed more command in the middle of the box, when these two build a partnership it will be there.

From midfield I thought Varney did a good job of keeping the much vaunted Trippier on the back foot and Conway was always busy. In the centre Cory Evans, clearly not 100% fit match fit yet still looks assured and brought the best out of Lowe who looks so much more confident with a decent player he trusts alongside him. With Cairney, Marshall and King to return, the midfield places look competitive again.

Dunny once again rolled back the years, the creative quality is now only available sporadically, and for an hour, but its still enough to create problems for any championship opposition, and Rhodes did what Rhodes does, found the net and worked hard all afternoon, pity that extra yard of pace eludes him.

Others have commented on the subs, when Dunny left so did Rovers confidence and momentum, a braver manager would have thrown Gestede into the frey, but it wasn't to be. Sadly the occasion was too much for the new boy Feeney who had no positive impact and needs to spend some time working with his new team mates down at Brockhall.

On the day Burnleys commitment shaded it, but Rovers much changed team put up the fight so lacking at Bolton. The consistency we all look for will not come until we can field a more settled side, I feel this has been mainly injury driven rather than any desire to tinker, which as the substitutions show, GB is reluctant to do.

If GB can find the right blend to finish the season strongly he deserves a second season, (as Dyche is getting at Burnley), but if this season now peters out and Rovers finish in the Bottom half then it would not be a surprise to see him step back into the shadows and become the new Tony Parkes.

Thanks ChrisP, believe it or not this is the first time I have been able to log on, I did say that England v Wales would get in the way, then other things piled up and by the time 11 pm last night arrived I was too knackered to be bothered.

After I have posted this I will wander down the rest of the threads. lol.

LP is a genuine guy from his posts and for him to be on here so soon and be honest doesn't deserve a reply like that, so hats off to you.

As for the game it was full of could have's, should have's, Burnley were fitter, physically stronger and better organised but Rovers did OK in my book, before the game I fully expected us to be 2 or 3 down by half time so for us to go in at half time was a real bonus.

To be honest not much between the teams on the pitch but the managers swung the game with their substitutions, again Dyche showed his experience and nerve while GB dithered, then made the wrong tactical decisions (not for the first time this season) we could see it coming.

The Chicken on the pitch thing was a bit naff, what had it done to deserve that? I hope the clown who brought it in gets done for animal cruelty, on the other side of the coin the guy in the chicken suit was brilliant and gave a lot of us a good laugh.

Well done to some of the from both sides who applauded both sets of fans, well done to some of the Rovers fans who stayed and applauded the Burnley players, pat on my back for that as well..

Because that is how sport should be.

So well done Burnley, I honestly hope you can push on and get promotion because as I have said all along the table never lies and the best teams always go up.

PS - I was there the last time you beat us, it hurt just as much both times!
Rovers fans have slated the Dingles on here ever since I have been blogging on this site yet they are all on here now praising them and hoping they do well in the Premiership. I'm not a hypocrite and I hope they get an absolute thrashing week in week out, you can call It sour grapes if you like, I don't care!
I truly hope they are the laughing stock of the league
RTID
Please read what I said again, I said I hoped they went up because over the season they deserve to.

What happens when they get there is another matter, Fair Play will see to that because unless they have at least £100 million in the bank they won't stand a snowball in hell's chance, and neither would we in their position.

The world of football as we knew it is over once Fair Play kicks in fully, it's simply designed to make the rich clubs richer and cull the number of clubs in the lower leagues.

what a load of twaddle written on here by both sets of fans.

reality is that we did what we have been doing since the first days of steve kean (and to a lesser extent allardyce) - we go a goal up against a decent side and then sit back thinking that we can hold the lead for a full second half - the second that jordan hit the post you kind of suspected that would cost us.

rovers are not a 90 minute side - for whatever reason we always run out of puff after about 70-75mins - burnley, regrettably, under dyche are a much fitter AND TOGETHER side coupled with very disciplined.

let's be honest this has been coming in the last couple of seasons - let them, for once, enjoy their day in the sunshine - they will go up.....but if they keep hold of ings and the other one they will have nowhere near as much time on the ball against prem defenders....but fair play to them - they are where they are on merit.

blooming hope that our team develops some spine. there were times yesterday when we couldn't pass the ball 5yds without it going astray. also whilst i dont blame that millwall lad for the defeat - getting booked within 10 seconds of coming on showed he had no idea what was going on.

it is with a sad heart that we fell yesterday - but we will be back. defeat is difficult to take against them - but let us not get used to it.
Twaddle you say? After you and FR came on here a month ago putting the boot in Sam Allardyce when things were difficult at West Ham! It seems to me that we have not seen a Rovers team as organised, tactically aware or as motivated since Big Sam was at the helm. Ask Dunny for his views. He has articulated as much on TV. This defeat to those bastards down the road is the latest ramification of the arrogant Venkys decisions to carry out one the worst managerial sacking in our history. I recall Morst declaring he would draw his curtains rather than watch a Big Sam Rovers outfit in action. Hope you aesthetes enjoyed a clear view of this gut wrenching defeat.
bazzer - you need to get over your love for sam - he has gone, he ain't coming back.

i have elaborated on here previous why i totally despise sam allardyce and it is not principally about the way he managed or mis-managed rovers.

venkys sacking lardy and replacing him with kean should never have been an either/or decision. do you honestly think he would have stayed anyway with the venky regime - in many ways they did him a favour as he would have had his contract fully paid up. ask 90% of weztam fans what they think - i bet you know their response.

so, are you saying that if we would have had lardy in the technical area - we would have won yesterday? QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!
Motivated by Lardy Liar Pants Bazzer ? I dont think so...half the team (midfield) could (and often did) have slept through a game playing his 'tactics'...I know most of the crowd slept through it - as it was either that or get a sore neck watching the game - hoof hoof hoof - long throw - hoof hoof hoof.

If you showed as much dignity as he just did, you'd be much better thought of but as you seem unable to be a man about things, you're showing your total lack of character and you look weak and snidey.
Thanks ChrisP, believe it or not this is the first time I have been able to log on, I did say that England v Wales would get in the way, then other things piled up and by the time 11 pm last night arrived I was too knackered to be bothered.

After I have posted this I will wander down the rest of the threads. lol.

LP is a genuine guy from his posts and for him to be on here so soon and be honest doesn't deserve a reply like that, so hats off to you.

As for the game it was full of could have's, should have's, Burnley were fitter, physically stronger and better organised but Rovers did OK in my book, before the game I fully expected us to be 2 or 3 down by half time so for us to go in at half time was a real bonus.

To be honest not much between the teams on the pitch but the managers swung the game with their substitutions, again Dyche showed his experience and nerve while GB dithered, then made the wrong tactical decisions (not for the first time this season) we could see it coming.

The Chicken on the pitch thing was a bit naff, what had it done to deserve that? I hope the clown who brought it in gets done for animal cruelty, on the other side of the coin the guy in the chicken suit was brilliant and gave a lot of us a good laugh.

Well done to some of the from both sides who applauded both sets of fans, well done to some of the Rovers fans who stayed and applauded the Burnley players, pat on my back for that as well..

Because that is how sport should be.

So well done Burnley, I honestly hope you can push on and get promotion because as I have said all along the table never lies and the best teams always go up.

PS - I was there the last time you beat us, it hurt just as much both times!
Rovers fans have slated the Dingles on here ever since I have been blogging on this site yet they are all on here now praising them and hoping they do well in the Premiership. I'm not a hypocrite and I hope they get an absolute thrashing week in week out, you can call It sour grapes if you like, I don't care!
I truly hope they are the laughing stock of the league

I'm hoping 'arry weaves his magic,and they don't go up in the first place.

Please read what I said again, I said I hoped they went up because over the season they deserve to.

What happens when they get there is another matter, Fair Play will see to that because unless they have at least £100 million in the bank they won't stand a snowball in hell's chance, and neither would we in their position.

The world of football as we knew it is over once Fair Play kicks in fully, it's simply designed to make the rich clubs richer and cull the number of clubs in the lower leagues.
Fair point, I'm probably still too upset to make any kind of reasonable comments, I might calm down in a few days.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.
Hello TTT. It's always a pleasure to read your completely unbiased and factual comments.

BTW, does anyone know if Dyche got booked for constantly coming out of the technical area? From where I was sat he looked extremely aggressive, particularly in the second half, and didn't even seem to get reprimanded by the 4th official. I thought he should have been sent to the stands.
How did it feel when that final whistle went and you GOT BEAT BY BURNLEY!

At Ewood Park!

Hahahahahaha!

Well, since you ask, not great tbh. Just think, if you keep it up for 30 more years, you will equal our proud record. Who knows, you might even win some silverware in the intervening years.
Nelson FC beat the mighty Real Madrid 4 - 2 in Madrid 91 years ago (May 1923) and Real haven't as yet been able to wreak revenge.
Makes your 35 years seem piddling and just as distorted as a statement of fact.
Lies, **** lies and statistics.

Brilliant. Cause Madrid have played them another 10 times since. What an awesome comparison... 1979-2014 without a win isn't distortion, or lies, its fact.
Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley. FACT

Thanks Look Up Blackburn, those are facts, but no relevance to this Nelson FC ****...

GB carry one the good work, we are not quite good enough this season, keep the rebuilding going and we will get there next year.
Once again Burnley well done.
Grovelling old git. Go away and suffer
STUPID COMMENT FROM A FELLOW CLARET WOULD IT NOT BE MUCH MORE LIKE IT WITH BOTH TEAMS IN THE TOP FLIGHT SO AS A CLARET I HOPE WE GO UP AUTOMATICALLY AND THE BLUES WIN THE PLAYOFFS
Hey 59/60 we all have some Joe Bankers as supporters, FC Burnley comes under this title, you go up enjoy every minute of it, I did, Liverpool, Old Trafford, Arsenal at home, brilliant,, win lose or draw it was great, play offs for us this year is now a dream imo but u never know, good luck next season.
No Im sure That Rhodes will fire you into the playoffs near the last day I for one will be fully behind The Blues on this matter Good Luck for The Rest Of The Season
It's good to see a Burnley fan with a bit of class, shame you appear to be in a minority, but congratulations on speaking up sir.
My Pleasure I have seen all of the Derby matches since 1954 onwards and the great players from both teams Ie Ronnie Clayton who was one hell of a player and Bryan Douglas for The Blues And Jimmy Mac My g-d he was special, Ray Pointer Brian Pilkington Jimmy Adamson for The Clarets to name but a few not forgetting John Conelly And Adam Blacklaw for both clubs,these kids need to grow up and engagage their brains before they open their mouths on both sides.

If you showed as much dignity as he just did, you'd be much better thought of but as you seem unable to be a man about things, you're showing your total lack of character and you look weak and snidey.
Thanks ChrisP, believe it or not this is the first time I have been able to log on, I did say that England v Wales would get in the way, then other things piled up and by the time 11 pm last night arrived I was too knackered to be bothered.

After I have posted this I will wander down the rest of the threads. lol.

LP is a genuine guy from his posts and for him to be on here so soon and be honest doesn't deserve a reply like that, so hats off to you.

As for the game it was full of could have's, should have's, Burnley were fitter, physically stronger and better organised but Rovers did OK in my book, before the game I fully expected us to be 2 or 3 down by half time so for us to go in at half time was a real bonus.

To be honest not much between the teams on the pitch but the managers swung the game with their substitutions, again Dyche showed his experience and nerve while GB dithered, then made the wrong tactical decisions (not for the first time this season) we could see it coming.

The Chicken on the pitch thing was a bit naff, what had it done to deserve that? I hope the clown who brought it in gets done for animal cruelty, on the other side of the coin the guy in the chicken suit was brilliant and gave a lot of us a good laugh.

Well done to some of the from both sides who applauded both sets of fans, well done to some of the Rovers fans who stayed and applauded the Burnley players, pat on my back for that as well..

Because that is how sport should be.

So well done Burnley, I honestly hope you can push on and get promotion because as I have said all along the table never lies and the best teams always go up.

PS - I was there the last time you beat us, it hurt just as much both times!
Rovers fans have slated the Dingles on here ever since I have been blogging on this site yet they are all on here now praising them and hoping they do well in the Premiership. I'm not a hypocrite and I hope they get an absolute thrashing week in week out, you can call It sour grapes if you like, I don't care!
I truly hope they are the laughing stock of the league
RTID
Please read what I said again, I said I hoped they went up because over the season they deserve to.

What happens when they get there is another matter, Fair Play will see to that because unless they have at least £100 million in the bank they won't stand a snowball in hell's chance, and neither would we in their position.

The world of football as we knew it is over once Fair Play kicks in fully, it's simply designed to make the rich clubs richer and cull the number of clubs in the lower leagues.
Fair point, I'm probably still too upset to make any kind of reasonable comments, I might calm down in a few days.
We'll still be here when you've calmed down.

Blackburn 1 - 2 Burnley.
23 points.
5 years.
Still 35yrs and counting since you beat us at the Turd,
so don't be too smug just yet!!
