GOALS either side of half-time from Rudy Gestede and Tommy Spurr fired Rovers to a rousing and impressive win over the high-flying Hoops which extended their unbeaten run to seven matches and moved them within four points of the play-off places.

Gestede opened the scoring in the ninth minute when he took a pass from Tom Cairney and blasted an unstoppable 25-yard drive low and hard past Robert Green.

There was little Green could have done to stop the in-form forward from racking up his seventh goal of the season and his third in his last three starts.

But the England international should have done better than let Spurr’s 48th-minute shot, following excellent build-up play between Craig Conway and Lee Williamson, slip through his fingers and into the net.

Rovers, who have now kept 14 clean sheets for the campaign, could have made their second straight victory, following Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Ipswich Town, even more emphatic.

But that did not stop Gary Bowyer from hailing it as one of the best of the season.

The Rovers boss said: “We’ve had some impressive halves and spells in games but for the complete 90 minutes, we were excellent and the players deserve all the credit.

“From start to finish they were right at it and they were a credit to the football club against a tough team.”

See tomorrow’s Lancashire Telegraph for a full match report and pictures.

Very good performance all round from Rovers tonight against a QPR side who lacked bartons drive and and had no sense of urgency throughout.

I thought Rudy and Conway were the pick of the bunch and have to acknowledge a solid show from CM by Lowe and Williamson who battled well and looked fairly composed.

Never felt this was ever going to be anything but a win from the moment Rudy hit the net, and when Spurr slid one in the bottom cornet it really was game over.

Well done lads, just keep plugging away and let's see how close we can get.

Like most Rovers fans I feared the worst when we started with Lowe and Williamson in centre midfield.

However I am pleased to say that tonight’s performance was the best I’ve seen since we beat Bolton 4 – 1 at Ewood back in August last year.

All eleven played well.
Tom Cairney was a little quieter than normal, but Conway was outstanding all night and was my man of the match.

Although young Keane sometimes gets dragged into the centre, I think we have improved defensively since he was moved to right back. His height is also a great help at set pieces.
It would be great if we could get him on loan again next season.

Why oh why so late in the season? We absolutely battered QPR tonight everyone played their socks off, special mention to Lowe and lionel Ritchie who I often slate, and we looked different class. Such a shame its to late to frighten them play off teams. Next season could be very exciting if GB sticks with this offensive style. Well done.

Tonight's performance was the best I have seen us play this season.
Well done the lads and Well done Gary Bowyer.
Even if we don't get into the play offs this season the team you have built over the months can only get stronger and I have no doubt that we will get promotion next year if not this.
Keep up the good work GB I for one appreciate how much you have done for us.
Onwards and Upwards!!

Quite simply the best performance by a Rovers team I have seen for some considerable time, brimming with confidence, full of ideas, Gestede, Conway, Kean and Cairney all vying for MoM, Gestede got it, personally I would have given it to Conway, but it would be churlish to complain.

Lowe and Williamson (who received a well deserved standing ovation when he was subbed) were excellent in the middle, allowing Cairney and Conway to strut their stuff.

One stunning reflex save by Robbo from a brilliant volley kept us one up at half time and while the defense as a whole had a few "moments" they were pretty solid.

I felt for Rhodes tonight, in the last four or five games I have seen he has had no protection whatsoever from the refs, tonight was no exception, the lad must be black and blue.

This is a mad league, really mad, after a great performance like that we are still stuck in 11th, albeit only 4 points behind 6th place.

Why do Rovers threads end up being hijacked by deluded Dingles ! Good luck to them etc however I just don't give a toss.
Back to the matter in hand. Great result last night and seems we're ending the season strongly. If we get a tilt at the play off's then great as was never expecting it at the start of the season therefore happy where we are now. Compared to 12 months ago I'm still gobsmacked that GB has taken stick this season by the glass always half full brigade.
Given its only his first full season at the helm its unreal to expect GB to be as astute as Pepe Guardiola and for me he's the right man for the job. The players want to be here and we fans are getting our pride back. Not a bad outcome for this season in my view and reason to be optimistic.
When I heard the comment that 200 million wasn't a lot for a transfer fund to become successful that puts everything in perspective as to what Rovers can realistically achieve in the future.

Things are finally coming together. We'll probably need 5 wins though so it's a tall order. Great to see Rudy score a thunderbolt from 25 yards. We all knew that he was good in the air but he's also starting to look very adept on the floor as well. What a great signing!

Michael Keane also looks fantastic at right back. Hopefully we will sign him up at summer. Another worth a mention is Conway who ran himself into the ground again. Plus Killgallon, who looked dominant at the back.

Ahhh, well , as a big club we have occasionally felt an obligation to help and assist football teams struggling in the Third World. So this year it is your turn.
We decided early on that you would need help and this upcoming one season only gift of a second brief glimpse of the EPL was thought to be the best way to help.
We will of course be swapping places next year but meanwhile you will be able to replace the wooden seats and buy a decent strip for the lads etc
Enjoy with our blessings!

I'm actually looking forward to watching the Dingles on MOTD. I very much enjoyed it the last time they were in the Premier League and I see no reason why next season will be any different. Saturday evening TV has been a bit sparse on comedy since they were last up there.

Watch out for Alan Shearer in the opening credits - he's the one in the Rovers shirt, holding on to the Premiership trophy.

Weird lot you Rovers fans.

Why would you want to watch Burnley play on MOTD? Are you Closet Clarets?

I suppose watching Burnley play against the best teams in the world with international superstars straight from the World Cup gracing our stadium is a good watch - whilst you wait for your 20 second highlights on the Football League show to see you getting hammered by Rotherham.

We'll never play you again.

A good result but as i have said before too little too late!!

I for one am not a prem supporter as you put it and i would like to think there are thousands of others like me just standing up for their views regarding the management regime st ewood.
You talk about the likes of me not turning up , the bloody owners who say they love the club so much dont bother to turn up anf support their team - through thick and thin like other foreign owners do at other clubs but perhaps they might if they get in the prem but dont worry it wont be happening!!

Sorry to say this Dave but your comments above show how idiotic your and the "missing thousands" stances are.

Stand up for your views by all means but if you think it is affecting "Venky's and their cohorts" LOL, you must be fecking brain dead.

How on earth can a few so called fans not paying a few quid to go and watch the team they allegedly support? You are hitting Venky's in their pockets are you?

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL - YCMIU.

The only entity you and the rest of your cohorts are affecting are the club you supposedly support, have a proper read of FFP, Venky's cannot make up the shortfall in income from whatever source anymore.

By staying away it is Blackburn Rovers you are damaging, not Venky's.

What Venky's did to this club was inexcusable as far as I am concerned they are the biggest bunch of idiots to set foot in Ewood, ever, but it's done, dusted, past, we can't go back and right those wrongs.

And fans like you, sulking and sniping all the time simply aren't helping.

I would like us to get to the play offs just to prove all the detractors wrong but at the end of the day the only advantage in the unlikely scenario of promotion would be a short term financial gain at the end of next season.

Because of FFP we wouldn't be able to invest and to be totally honest as dire as the three teams most likely to be relegated from the PL are they would wipe the floor with any clubs promoted from the championship nine times out of ten, so just imagine what the rest are likely to do.

Well done to Team GB on an excellent run of results that have kept our season alive and given us all (or nearly all DD) increased hope and raised expectations for next season.

Keep our key players, add a couple of good players where needed (another striker, midfielder and a defender) and this squad is as good as or probably better than any of the clubs that will go up this season.

Only joking, sincere congratulations on your 53rd season in the top flight, (a feat Rovers achieved in 1964.) We've probably left it too late to make the play-offs this year but promotion is a real possibility next season. Hopefully the 2015-16 season will be our 73rd season in the top flight.

Weird lot you Rovers fans.

Why would you want to watch Burnley play on MOTD? Are you Closet Clarets?

I suppose watching Burnley play against the best teams in the world with international superstars straight from the World Cup gracing our stadium is a good watch - whilst you wait for your 20 second highlights on the Football League show to see you getting hammered by Rotherham.

We'll never play you again.
Well, watching superstars from Alan Shearer through to Henri and Bergkamp, Cole .Tugay, Sheringham , Rooney, Beckham, Aguero etc is something we are quite used to at Rovers.
I can see why it will be a nice novelty for your hick town and supporting hill-billies, for the odd season. make a nice change for you and you will see lots of goals too, mainly in your net
Enjoy!

Need to win your next 2 games.
I would like us to get to the play offs just to prove all the detractors wrong but at the end of the day the only advantage in the unlikely scenario of promotion would be a short term financial gain at the end of next season.

Because of FFP we wouldn't be able to invest and to be totally honest as dire as the three teams most likely to be relegated from the PL are they would wipe the floor with any clubs promoted from the championship nine times out of ten, so just imagine what the rest are likely to do.
I think you're being a bit pessimistic. When was the last time the 3 promoted teams got relegated? Looking like one this time and they were probably favourites to stay up. A young, hungry squad like ours is usually better than a tired one like fulhams. I think even burnley will give it a good go.
The problem is that Burnley FC is a house built on sand.

When you get to the Premier League, your squad of Championship rejects will become massively exposed. You have one thing on your side, in that Dyche is clearly have a very good manager. However, he still lives in the South and will no doubt jump ship at the first opportunity. And who could blame him? For what he's done, taking a borderline Championship / League One to the Premier League, is nothing short of magnificent! He deserves a job at a decent Premier League club and I only hope that you Dingles have the decency to give him a good send-off! Just like you should have done with Moses!

No Premier League standard players will want to sign for you, as they don't tend to want to play in half empty, dilapidated grounds with wooden seats. Not to mention training on pitches which are on a slope. They will also be highly aware that signing for you will only mean one season in the Premier League.

I wouldn be surprised if anyone at the game didn,t feel confident of a win after the first ten minutes.
Conway or Rudy MoM?? Both in my opinion but you cant do that so Rudy for the goal and the arrow celebration!
But in reality the whole team was superb last night and all did their jobs fully and with passion. I think we wanted it more and played for the team and the club in every position with real passion
Tactics spot on again and those who try to say GB cannot motivate need to see game sooner rather than later
Whatever happens we are buiding momentum and a winning mind set.

Agreed. There's no doubt that Bowyer is shrewd in the transfer market and his team is now beginning to take shape. It will be great if we can make the play-offs, but with a 4 point gap and a poor goal difference, it might just be beyond us with only 5 games left. Next season is looking promising though, if we do miss out.

Another great performance last night with Gestede and Conway leaving Cardiff wishing they'd asked for more money. Cairney was kept pretty quiet, as was Rhodes, but Lowe and Williamson were immense in midfield. Our defence was pretty solid with, a few chances aside, QPR reduced to shooting from distance. Unfortunately, other results didn't really go our way. Like all the teams between 7th and 12th, we needed Reading to lose and Eddie Howe's flying Bournemouth didn't disappoint. Sheffield Wednesday's failure to hold onto their lead keeps Forest ahead of us, whilst a post-promotion hangover saw Brighton thump Leicester. It might make the title race more interesting but it wasn't the result we all hoped for. After rolling over against us on the weekend, I thought Ipswich would capitulate against Huddersfield but it wasn't to be. Still, I'm sure the fans of Leeds, Bolton and Birmingham would give their right arm to be 4 points of the play-offs with five games to go.

As for the remaining fixtures, we've certainly not got the most difficult run-in of the seven teams chasing 6th place. Oddly enough, it's the team fending off all the other suitors who have that misfortune!

Reading: Leicester (H) Wigan (A) Boro' (H) Doncaster (A) Burnley (H)

Brighton: Charlton (H) H'field (A) Blackpool (H) Yeovil (H) Forest (A)

Ipswich: Doncaster (H) Watford (A) B'mouth (H) Burnley (A) Wednesday (H)

B'mouth: Yeovil (A) Wednesday (H) Ipswich (A) Forest (A) Millwall (A)

Forest: QPR (A) Birmingham (H) Leeds (A) B'mouth (A) Brighton (H)

Blackburn: Wednesday (A) Yeovil (H) Birmingham (A) Charlton (A) Wigan (H)

Watford: Millwall (A) Ipswich (H) QPR (A) Derby (A) Charlton (A) H'field (H)


Based on the final fixtures, it's hard to see past Brighton nicking the final play-off place. However, the Championship is a great league in the respect that any team can beat another on their day, irregardless of league position or form.

Nah, I am sure that you are correct, they will all look at the wooden seats in the away end and think "Forget the chance of playing in the Premier League", "Forget the tens of thousands of pounds in wages", I am not signing for this club - PMSL, it is clear you are still praying to your Gypsy Gods in the hope that this is true, unfortunately I am guessing that the above things will hold more credence than your inane attempts at banter.

Blackburn fans you really are the most bitter and deluded mugs in football - half empty ground? Do you really think the Turf will be half empty next season? was it half empty the last time we got promoted?

You are just sad and upset that Blackburn will NEVER EVER play in the top flight of English football again and you know this - you are going to get massively stung by FFP next season, you are going to have to sell Hanley, Robinson and Rhodes to compete and even then you will get a transfer embargo next January.

I think you're being a bit pessimistic. When was the last time the 3 promoted teams got relegated? Looking like one this time and they were probably favourites to stay up. A young, hungry squad like ours is usually better than a tired one like fulhams. I think even burnley will give it a good go.
The problem is that Burnley FC is a house built on sand.

When you get to the Premier League, your squad of Championship rejects will become massively exposed. You have one thing on your side, in that Dyche is clearly have a very good manager. However, he still lives in the South and will no doubt jump ship at the first opportunity. And who could blame him? For what he's done, taking a borderline Championship / League One to the Premier League, is nothing short of magnificent! He deserves a job at a decent Premier League club and I only hope that you Dingles have the decency to give him a good send-off! Just like you should have done with Moses!

No Premier League standard players will want to sign for you, as they don't tend to want to play in half empty, dilapidated grounds with wooden seats. Not to mention training on pitches which are on a slope. They will also be highly aware that signing for you will only mean one season in the Premier League.
Nah, I am sure that you are correct, they will all look at the wooden seats in the away end and think "Forget the chance of playing in the Premier League", "Forget the tens of thousands of pounds in wages", I am not signing for this club - PMSL, it is clear you are still praying to your Gypsy Gods in the hope that this is true, unfortunately I am guessing that the above things will hold more credence than your inane attempts at banter.

Blackburn fans you really are the most bitter and deluded mugs in football - half empty ground? Do you really think the Turf will be half empty next season? was it half empty the last time we got promoted?

You are just sad and upset that Blackburn will NEVER EVER play in the top flight of English football again and you know this - you are going to get massively stung by FFP next season, you are going to have to sell Hanley, Robinson and Rhodes to compete and even then you will get a transfer embargo next January.

Administration and financial oblivion beckon.

Long Live The Venkys
So, despite ridiculing Rovers fans as glory hunters in the past, you're now admitting that your own fans are no different.

As for never ever playing in the top flight again, and having to sell Rhodes, Hanley and Robinson to compete, why do you keep making these bold statements about our club which NEVER EVER come to fruition?

Bitter and deluded indeed.

Weird lot you Rovers fans.

Why would you want to watch Burnley play on MOTD? Are you Closet Clarets?

I suppose watching Burnley play against the best teams in the world with international superstars straight from the World Cup gracing our stadium is a good watch - whilst you wait for your 20 second highlights on the Football League show to see you getting hammered by Rotherham.

We'll never play you again.

Brilliant team effort. Five more wins now and we will be in the play offs!!! Craig Conway was man of the match for me. He looks a snippet for £100,000. He showed a fantastic attitude and work rate up and down the pitch as well as producing some moments of quality. He also snuffed out Junior Hoilett. Great to see Cairney starting in the middle of the park. He is very comfortable on the ball, has fast feet and we always look stronger when he starts there. Another good signing is Rudy Gestede. He looks strong on the ball and is fantastic in the air.
Carry on the good work.

Another great performance last night with Gestede and Conway leaving Cardiff wishing they'd asked for more money. Cairney was kept pretty quiet, as was Rhodes, but Lowe and Williamson were immense in midfield. Our defence was pretty solid with, a few chances aside, QPR reduced to shooting from distance. Unfortunately, other results didn't really go our way. Like all the teams between 7th and 12th, we needed Reading to lose and Eddie Howe's flying Bournemouth didn't disappoint. Sheffield Wednesday's failure to hold onto their lead keeps Forest ahead of us, whilst a post-promotion hangover saw Brighton thump Leicester. It might make the title race more interesting but it wasn't the result we all hoped for. After rolling over against us on the weekend, I thought Ipswich would capitulate against Huddersfield but it wasn't to be. Still, I'm sure the fans of Leeds, Bolton and Birmingham would give their right arm to be 4 points of the play-offs with five games to go.

As for the remaining fixtures, we've certainly not got the most difficult run-in of the seven teams chasing 6th place. Oddly enough, it's the team fending off all the other suitors who have that misfortune!

Reading: Leicester (H) Wigan (A) Boro' (H) Doncaster (A) Burnley (H)

Brighton: Charlton (H) H'field (A) Blackpool (H) Yeovil (H) Forest (A)

Ipswich: Doncaster (H) Watford (A) B'mouth (H) Burnley (A) Wednesday (H)

B'mouth: Yeovil (A) Wednesday (H) Ipswich (A) Forest (A) Millwall (A)

Forest: QPR (A) Birmingham (H) Leeds (A) B'mouth (A) Brighton (H)

Blackburn: Wednesday (A) Yeovil (H) Birmingham (A) Charlton (A) Wigan (H)

Watford: Millwall (A) Ipswich (H) QPR (A) Derby (A) Charlton (A) H'field (H)


Based on the final fixtures, it's hard to see past Brighton nicking the final play-off place. However, the Championship is a great league in the respect that any team can beat another on their day, irregardless of league position or form.

Arte et Labore
Hello IES, that`s a pretty fair analysis of the race for the play-offs! I think its too close to call at this stage and can change many times before the 6th place is secured. But for me its Bournemouth rather than Brighton that have the best form and are looking good under Eddie Howe plus they were the last team to beat us and at Ewood too...!

Our form is red hot at the moment - but we would need far too many other results from too many other clubs to go our way for it to happen. All we can do is keep playing well and picking up the points and see where we end up. Nice way to end what has been a very big season for us, lots of changes, and a massive transition from the last two seasons for the Rovers, both on and off the field, from whcih we have come out of in quite a strong position and ready for a real push-on next season..

Fantastic team performace last night. Conway was man of the match for me. His attitude is first class and he looks a bargain for £100.000. His work rate was second to none. He looked good going forward and he worked hard to help his full back and stopped Hoiletts runs. Also we look so much stronger with Cairney in the middle of the park. He has very fast feet and looks very comfortable on the ball. Why does he not start there every week Mr Bowyer??
Gestede is another who looks a good signing. Big and strong at holding the ball up and a real handful in the air.
Michael Keane has settled into the full back role too.He looks strong. Kane will have trouble getting his place back.
Great performance by the blues. Five more wins now and we will be in the play offs!!
If not this season, I think a few more signings next season and if we play like last night then I think we will certainly go up and of course the Dinglets will be returning bak to the championship.

If not this season, I think a few more signings next season and if we play like last night then I think we will certainly go up and of course the Dinglets will be returning bak to the championship. mwoods1

Prior to Jacks money (which went almost 15 years ago) you were 2 divisions below us for 6 seasons.

In the last 40 years you've spent ONE SEASON in the top flight and yet it's your rightful place? What an absolute tw4t.

Have you had the 09-03-14 tattoo yet? Hilarious.

You know the really funny part would be what happens if we scrape the play-offs? Then go on to win promotion? Slim chance I know but not impossible.
Now that would be funny Baldric the troll¬
Imagine all your predictions of doom and financial oblivion going up in smoke as we collect the dosh you have been bragging about Burnley having. We would be back on a financial footing that not only equalled you but surpasses you aswe dont need to rebuild the ground!
Hmmm that would be funny after all your ridiculous bragging

Need to win your next 2 games.
I would like us to get to the play offs just to prove all the detractors wrong but at the end of the day the only advantage in the unlikely scenario of promotion would be a short term financial gain at the end of next season.

Because of FFP we wouldn't be able to invest and to be totally honest as dire as the three teams most likely to be relegated from the PL are they would wipe the floor with any clubs promoted from the championship nine times out of ten, so just imagine what the rest are likely to do.
I think you're being a bit pessimistic. When was the last time the 3 promoted teams got relegated? Looking like one this time and they were probably favourites to stay up. A young, hungry squad like ours is usually better than a tired one like fulhams. I think even burnley will give it a good go.
The problem is that Burnley FC is a house built on sand.

When you get to the Premier League, your squad of Championship rejects will become massively exposed. You have one thing on your side, in that Dyche is clearly have a very good manager. However, he still lives in the South and will no doubt jump ship at the first opportunity. And who could blame him? For what he's done, taking a borderline Championship / League One to the Premier League, is nothing short of magnificent! He deserves a job at a decent Premier League club and I only hope that you Dingles have the decency to give him a good send-off! Just like you should have done with Moses!

No Premier League standard players will want to sign for you, as they don't tend to want to play in half empty, dilapidated grounds with wooden seats. Not to mention training on pitches which are on a slope. They will also be highly aware that signing for you will only mean one season in the Premier League.
Nah, I am sure that you are correct, they will all look at the wooden seats in the away end and think "Forget the chance of playing in the Premier League", "Forget the tens of thousands of pounds in wages", I am not signing for this club - PMSL, it is clear you are still praying to your Gypsy Gods in the hope that this is true, unfortunately I am guessing that the above things will hold more credence than your inane attempts at banter.

Blackburn fans you really are the most bitter and deluded mugs in football - half empty ground? Do you really think the Turf will be half empty next season? was it half empty the last time we got promoted?

You are just sad and upset that Blackburn will NEVER EVER play in the top flight of English football again and you know this - you are going to get massively stung by FFP next season, you are going to have to sell Hanley, Robinson and Rhodes to compete and even then you will get a transfer embargo next January.

Administration and financial oblivion beckon.

Long Live The Venkys
If your "stadium" isn't half empty, then does that means you have glory hunters? Surely not? Self righteous FC, the greatest self proclaimed wonder club in the galaxy has glory hunters?

Rather than hoping and praying that we go into oblivion you should be more concerned about what point Dyche is going to bin you like some out of date dog food. He's a great manager and what he's done there is on par with Dynamo walking down the sides of buildings, which means he won't be there long. Surely you must know that? Surely you must know your gonna get Coyled again?

I'm actually looking forward to watching the Dingles on MOTD. I very much enjoyed it the last time they were in the Premier League and I see no reason why next season will be any different. Saturday evening TV has been a bit sparse on comedy since they were last up there.

Watch out for Alan Shearer in the opening credits - he's the one in the Rovers shirt, holding on to the Premiership trophy.
Weird lot you Rovers fans.

Why would you want to watch Burnley play on MOTD? Are you Closet Clarets?

I suppose watching Burnley play against the best teams in the world with international superstars straight from the World Cup gracing our stadium is a good watch - whilst you wait for your 20 second highlights on the Football League show to see you getting hammered by Rotherham.

We'll never play you again.
Tatts still living in the past again - wake up, it's 2013! Such a comedy beating Everton, spurs and Man U at home in the same season. Yes there were hidings but also some great moments, when was the last time you beat those 3 at home in a single season? Sure it wasn't in the last 5 years but you don't hear us banging the drum do you - no it is in the past and we are all looking forward to the future.
It's 2013 is it, because I could have sworn that I celebrated the arrival of 2014 back in January???

You need to stick to porridge and lay off the Tennants Extra at breakfast time, you Dingle Jock numpty!

The only way we'll never play you again is if we go up next year and you head back to Division 4, where you spent so many seasons!
prepare to spend decades in our shadow..you wont go up this season because your just not good enough.Burnley played at 50% and still comfortably outplayed you at Deadwood.Your transfer embargo next season will mean that you will struggle to stay up.Hanley,Rhodes and Cairney will all be sold to keep you afloat.
Burnley will stay up comfortably next season,we only went down by three points last time around and that was with the inept duo of Coyle and Laws overseeing things.
Hope things improve for you because i know a cple of rovers fans who are decent lads,but your club is on its knees while your rivals are going to be dining at the top table with 100 million heading our way.

A cracking result for Rovers last night and a big help to the clarets promotion push. I still think that it's between you and Bournemouth for the 4th play off spot the other teams have gone off the boil. I'm amazed at the amount of negativity on here to GB, I think he's settled your defence now and you're now at a similar stage as Burnley were towards the end of last season. If you miss out on the play offs I'm sure you'll be challenging next season. Best of luck for the rest of the season. UTC

Sorry to say this Dave but your comments above show how idiotic your and the "missing thousands" stances are.

Stand up for your views by all means but if you think it is affecting "Venky's and their cohorts" LOL, you must be fecking brain dead.

How on earth can a few so called fans not paying a few quid to go and watch the team they allegedly support? You are hitting Venky's in their pockets are you?

LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL - YCMIU.

The only entity you and the rest of your cohorts are affecting are the club you supposedly support, have a proper read of FFP, Venky's cannot make up the shortfall in income from whatever source anymore.

By staying away it is Blackburn Rovers you are damaging, not Venky's.

What Venky's did to this club was inexcusable as far as I am concerned they are the biggest bunch of idiots to set foot in Ewood, ever, but it's done, dusted, past, we can't go back and right those wrongs.

And fans like you, sulking and sniping all the time simply aren't helping.
Just feeding your own mind with excuses to substantiate accepting what the venkys and co have done to the club instead of making a stance. Your the one thats brain dead

Exactly what half a dozen sides are saying. Looks like you might be looking for a favour from an already promoted side on the final day of the season,
You better hope Leicester keep the championship race interesting or Reading might play half of our youth team on the final day.
Need to win your next 2 games.
I would like us to get to the play offs just to prove all the detractors wrong but at the end of the day the only advantage in the unlikely scenario of promotion would be a short term financial gain at the end of next season.

Because of FFP we wouldn't be able to invest and to be totally honest as dire as the three teams most likely to be relegated from the PL are they would wipe the floor with any clubs promoted from the championship nine times out of ten, so just imagine what the rest are likely to do.
I think you're being a bit pessimistic. When was the last time the 3 promoted teams got relegated? Looking like one this time and they were probably favourites to stay up. A young, hungry squad like ours is usually better than a tired one like fulhams. I think even burnley will give it a good go.
I would like not to be pessimistic, really I would, but I am a fairly pragmatic person.

Unless Venky's can find a legal way of resolving our debt issues the way I read FFP is that we would be severely penalised for getting promoted.

FFP is a misnomer, it has nothing to do with fair play whatsoever, it's just very cleverly named, it's about clubs staying a budget based on previous season's income.

Therefore clubs at the top with huge incomes from TV, advertising, sponsorship etc; etc will be creaming it in year on year, the rest of us irrespective of how rich our owners are and whatever our aspirations may be will be reduced to feeding off scraps.

Look at it this way, had FFP happened in the early 90's Jack Walker would never have been able to achieve what he did with Rovers.

That should be a sobering thought for everyone.

I suppose watching Burnley play against the best teams in the world with international superstars straight from the World Cup gracing our stadium is a good watch - whilst you wait for your 20 second highlights on the Football League show to see you getting hammered by Rotherham.

We'll never play you again.
Tatts still living in the past again - wake up, it's 2013! Such a comedy beating Everton, spurs and Man U at home in the same season. Yes there were hidings but also some great moments, when was the last time you beat those 3 at home in a single season? Sure it wasn't in the last 5 years but you don't hear us banging the drum do you - no it is in the past and we are all looking forward to the future.
I thought it was 2014
Someone got it then!

It's 2013 is it, because I could have sworn that I celebrated the arrival of 2014 back in January???

You need to stick to porridge and lay off the Tennants Extra at breakfast time, you Dingle Jock numpty!

The only way we'll never play you again is if we go up next year and you head back to Division 4, where you spent so many seasons!
Think my comments have gone straight over your head on that one then. I am more than aware what year it is, thank you.

Play offs here we come
Exactly what half a dozen sides are saying. Looks like you might be looking for a favour from an already promoted side on the final day of the season,
You better hope Leicester keep the championship race interesting or Reading might play half of our youth team on the final day.
Need to win your next 2 games.
I would like us to get to the play offs just to prove all the detractors wrong but at the end of the day the only advantage in the unlikely scenario of promotion would be a short term financial gain at the end of next season.

Because of FFP we wouldn't be able to invest and to be totally honest as dire as the three teams most likely to be relegated from the PL are they would wipe the floor with any clubs promoted from the championship nine times out of ten, so just imagine what the rest are likely to do.
What I noticed most about the prem last time round was that defensive errors tended to be punished whereas at championship level you can get away with it. Simple matter is I think we will have to strengthen defensively to cope and also in midfield but should be interesting to see the front lads push themselves at that level. Ings has the quality for me, Vokes would partner him well and hopefully back before Christmas and let's see what Barnes is capable of, so far so good. Recruit a decent fourth one and it will give us half a chance.
Think with regards to your own club then snap any chance if you could to get promotion. Yes you would have a hefty fine so don't go chasing the ace unless Venky's want to bankroll to some tune to ensure you stay up. Otherwise take the money and run and become stronger in the process.
The way I view it is if my club can spend wisely and avoid relegation then that is a bonus. If we are relegated but are much stronger financially than most other championship clubs that is also a bonus. Managed correctly it is a win win scenario.

Where are those who like to opine that it is not a good time to go up? Well done GB, best performance I have seen for a good while from a Rovers team. Cardiff City deserve to go down simply for letting us have Gestede and Conway so cheaply.
And for having a Manager who refused to manage the Rovers, he thought
Cardiff were a bigger and better club, Ha Ha hard luck Ollie!
