Evans: There can be last day drama for Rovers

This Is Lancashire: Corry Evans Corry Evans

CORRY Evans is refusing to rule out another dramatic last day of the campaign which could end with Blackburn Rovers sneaking into the play-offs.

The odds are heavily stacked against Gary Bowyer’s in-form side as they will have to beat Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park on Saturday and hope results elsewhere go their way.

Evans accepts it is going to be a tall order, but the tenacious Rovers midfielder, who was part of the Hull City squad that won promotion from the Championship on the final day of last season after it appeared that Watford would pip the Tigers to second spot, reckons ‘anything can happen in football’.

“The season’s not dead for us going into the last game – there’s still something to play for,” said Evans, who produced an outstanding performance in Saturday’s 3-1 win at Charlton Athletic.

“From my experience with Hull last season, when it went right to the wire, I know anything can happen in football.

“All we can do is worry about ourselves and get the three points.”

If Rovers were to beat top-six rivals Wigan it would stretch their unbeaten run to 12 matches and ensure they would end the campaign on 70 points, two more points than Leicester City achieved in finishing sixth last season.

That would give Evans further confidence going into the new term – even if the play-offs fall just out of reach.

“We’ve got a good blend now, we all know each other’s game,” said the 23-year-old, who was one of 12 senior signings made by Rovers boss Bowyer last summer.

“At the start there were a lot of new faces coming into Blackburn, including myself, so it was always going to take time to get to know each other and gel.

“But I think we’ve shown over these last 11 last unbeaten games that we are growing in confidence and getting stronger with our performances.

“We’ve just got to cut out the sloppy goals we concede and try and maintain the way we want to play.”

Saturday’s victory at relegation-threatened Charlton, secured by strikes from Rudy Gestede, Michael Keane and Tom Cairney and aided by Paul Robinson’s first-half penalty save, extended Rovers’ unbeaten away run to six games, during which time they have scored 19 goals.

And Evans said: “It was very pleasing to come away from home and get the three points.

“I thought we were comfortable in the first half but obviously they had a penalty and Robbo made a great save to keep us in the lead.

“And in the second half I thought we showed dominance with the possession we had and the chances we created.”

I fear for you lot next season, and here's why..

Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff, should they come down will be boosted by the fact that they have in the main Premier League squads with the benefit of enhanced parachute payments of £60million to fund a straight return.

Blackburn Rovers on the other hand are £60million in debt and from January are subject to a transfer ban until the losses (last season £36.5million, plus a further £8million deficit in parachute payments) are brought in line with the rules. This means your better players, Rhodes, Cairney, etc will be fair game for the relegated Premier League clubs and those looking to push for promotion next season, and sadly your financial situation will dictate that you have to sell.

This also means that the other mid-table clubs who have been your competition this season will all be capable of strengthening whilst you lot are left behind having to reduce your wage bill.

As much as you disagree, your best chance of a return to the Premier League was blown when you hounded out Steve Kean, a man who had you sitting comfortably in 3rd place and looking like a good shout for automatic promotion at the first attempt. His sacking and the subsequent failure of your club to recruit a proper manager in countless attempts has left you with the real possibility of finishing the season in 11th place should Wigan beat you on Saturday.

There are realistically about 10 teams in the Championship that are better than Blackburn Rovers, including the likes of Nottingham Forest and Watford who are on miserable runs but will get their acts together next season.

Considering the 3 teams likely to come down and the firce competition from those desperate to go up, particularly QPR and Derby if they don't make it this time, a mid-table finish would be about the best you can hope for next season. However my money is still on an FFP ar5ekicking for you lot and the already twitchy Venky's to consider withdrawing their support when you struggle for a third successive season outside the top flight.

What value is left in this enterprise for them? It has failed miserably, they now gain nothing from you in commercial terms other than connection to a relegated Premier League club struggling in the 2nd tier with links to match fixing, that is considered nothing more than a laughingstock by the English media. They will pull the plug over the course of the next two seasons and then its anyone's guess what will become of you.

there really is clear evidence of progress and i think rovers fans have reasons to be cheerful even if we miss out on the play-offs. at the start of the season, if you'd said we'd still be in there with a shout going into the last game, most sensible fans would have bitten off a whole load of hands for that.
much credit to bowyer and the squad for making us respectable again. sure, it's not perfect in every game, but my word it's better than it was.
i must say evans is a really top notch player for us. i managed to get to the valley at the weekend and when we were good, we were excellent. players like cairney and evans were a massive part of that, so i would suggest venkey's should be willing to back bowyer in the transfer market, if we're not hamstrung by a transfer ban

Well, you have spent a good deal of time composing your piece. It's a mixture of reasonable comment and joyful, if ridiculous, stirring.
I think that many believe that the club is in a much better state than when in Steve Kean's hands. The Venkys seem to have been behaving sensibly and I am now sure that they were on the receiving end of some very strange, and possibly criminal, advice when they entered the world of football, an area they clearly knew little about.
Enjoy next season. I'm sure we will.

Why are you still so obsessed with Rovers?

You may be in a higher division but you still have a massive inferiority complex, don't you.

I guess 30-odd years of being inferior has done that to you. Plus seeing us winning two major domestic trophies, the very thing that defines the success of a football club, during that time. Two trophies that you will NEVER win, even if you live to be 1,0000 years old. Even if we never go above you again in my lifetime, which is highly unlikely, then I will be happy to say that I have seen us win the Premier League and League Cup, whereas you have won sweet FA - sorry, I'm forgetting that you won the Division 4 Championship.

Dyche, who still lives in the South, will be off soon, as will Ings and Trippier and then it will be normal service resumed. You won't be able to sign Premier League quality players as they won't want to play for the relegation favourites, in front of the lowest Premier League attendances, in a League One standard ground and train on pitches which are on a slope and subject to dog fouling.

It would've been much simpler to say Rovers will end up in the Conference & Burnley will be an established trophy winning Premier League club for years to come.

I know, sounds hilarious doesn't it. Funnily enough Burnley were on the verge of the Conference & Rovers have spent the majority of the last 20 years being an established trophy winning Premier League club.

What a pity that a very unlikely promotion, a much craved derby win and an excellent manager still can't erase the years of mental torture we've caused you. Scarred for life. Shame really......

The Jack Walker years were but a blip in the grand scheme of things, and proof if it was needed that you can buy success in the short term but longer term you need to have a bit of something about you. That's the reason you clowns have been relegated from the Premier League not once but TWICE.

Walkers dream was for you to continue as a top flight club and to challenge the best in the country, and in Europe. He wanted you to rival the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal. But you messed it all up, you got relegated, and then he passed away while you were in the Championship. No matter though because your future was safeguarded due to the trust he had put in place for future generations... or was it?

So once again his money dragged you back up for a second spell and you remained a mid-table nobody for a few seasons until the Walker Trust decided they'd had enough of this parasite leeching off them and flogged you to the first clowns to roll up at Ewood with a bit of cash to spare. They couldn't get rid of you quick enough and ultimately you have found your rightful level once more.

To insist that you have experienced success and not acknowledge that said success was based on outspending all around you simply highlights the delusion of the average no-dad, because without Walkers millions...

Would you ever have reached the Premier League?
Would you ever have enticed the likes of Kenny Dalglish as manager?
Would you ever have been able to buy the players Kenny wanted or fund the salaries of those players based on money your club generated itself?

The answer to all three questions is no, of course you wouldn't. It was all bought.

Now that you're back where you belong as a penniless tin-pot football club are you competing at the top end of the division on merit? No you're a struggling mid-table team of free-transfers and rejects who are about to be de-panted in the most humiliating way possible next season as FFP names and shames you.

So accept it for what it is, you bought success but at what longer term cost to your club? The distortion that Walkers millions introduced has caused the current financial mess that engulfs English football so its kind of ironic that you'll suffer as a result of the rules that have been put in place to prevent such nonsense in the future. It's time to pay up.

Enjoy your years in the wilderness.

"what if the goal difference and points are equal?"

Football League rules state that it then comes down to the number of goals scored.

If the number of goals scored is also equal then the two teams in question play-off for the final place.

If that game ends up a draw then the two managers must take part in a best of 3 arm wrestle. Winner takes all.

If the number of goals scored is also equal then the two teams in question play-off for the final place. If that game ends up a draw then the two managers must take part in a best of 3 arm wrestle. Winner takes all. Super_Clarets

The Jack Walker years were but a blip in the grand scheme of things, and proof if it was needed that you can buy success in the short term but longer term you need to have a bit of something about you. That's the reason you clowns have been relegated from the Premier League not once but TWICE.

Walkers dream was for you to continue as a top flight club and to challenge the best in the country, and in Europe. He wanted you to rival the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal. But you messed it all up, you got relegated, and then he passed away while you were in the Championship. No matter though because your future was safeguarded due to the trust he had put in place for future generations... or was it?

So once again his money dragged you back up for a second spell and you remained a mid-table nobody for a few seasons until the Walker Trust decided they'd had enough of this parasite leeching off them and flogged you to the first clowns to roll up at Ewood with a bit of cash to spare. They couldn't get rid of you quick enough and ultimately you have found your rightful level once more.

To insist that you have experienced success and not acknowledge that said success was based on outspending all around you simply highlights the delusion of the average no-dad, because without Walkers millions...

Would you ever have reached the Premier League?
Would you ever have enticed the likes of Kenny Dalglish as manager?
Would you ever have been able to buy the players Kenny wanted or fund the salaries of those players based on money your club generated itself?

The answer to all three questions is no, of course you wouldn't. It was all bought.

Now that you're back where you belong as a penniless tin-pot football club are you competing at the top end of the division on merit? No you're a struggling mid-table team of free-transfers and rejects who are about to be de-panted in the most humiliating way possible next season as FFP names and shames you.

So accept it for what it is, you bought success but at what longer term cost to your club? The distortion that Walkers millions introduced has caused the current financial mess that engulfs English football so its kind of ironic that you'll suffer as a result of the rules that have been put in place to prevent such nonsense in the future. It's time to pay up.

Enjoy your years in the wilderness.
"The Jack Walker years were but a blip in the grand scheme of things"

So much of a blip, you feel it necessary to post 8 paragraphs about something that happened 20 yeas ago. Still so very very bitter.

The intense thought process that clearly goes into every one of your manipulated self comforting one sided posts is truly staggering.

What's particularly hilarious is how you ask yourself the questions that suit your bitter & twisted argument, then answer yourself with the what you want to hear.

Would Burnley have reached the Premier League without being fortunate enough to stumble across a manger if the quality of Shaun Dyche? The answer is no. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? Personally I don't let it bother me. I can take the rough with the smooth, unlike you, who despite trying to dress it up still can't accept Blackburn Rovers hold just about every record when it comes to comparisons with Burnley - and that my little Dexys Midnight Runner is a fact so get over it.

I fear for you lot next season, and here's why..

Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff, should they come down will be boosted by the fact that they have in the main Premier League squads with the benefit of enhanced parachute payments of £60million to fund a straight return.

Blackburn Rovers on the other hand are £60million in debt and from January are subject to a transfer ban until the losses (last season £36.5million, plus a further £8million deficit in parachute payments) are brought in line with the rules. This means your better players, Rhodes, Cairney, etc will be fair game for the relegated Premier League clubs and those looking to push for promotion next season, and sadly your financial situation will dictate that you have to sell.

This also means that the other mid-table clubs who have been your competition this season will all be capable of strengthening whilst you lot are left behind having to reduce your wage bill.

As much as you disagree, your best chance of a return to the Premier League was blown when you hounded out Steve Kean, a man who had you sitting comfortably in 3rd place and looking like a good shout for automatic promotion at the first attempt. His sacking and the subsequent failure of your club to recruit a proper manager in countless attempts has left you with the real possibility of finishing the season in 11th place should Wigan beat you on Saturday.

There are realistically about 10 teams in the Championship that are better than Blackburn Rovers, including the likes of Nottingham Forest and Watford who are on miserable runs but will get their acts together next season.

Considering the 3 teams likely to come down and the firce competition from those desperate to go up, particularly QPR and Derby if they don't make it this time, a mid-table finish would be about the best you can hope for next season. However my money is still on an FFP ar5ekicking for you lot and the already twitchy Venky's to consider withdrawing their support when you struggle for a third successive season outside the top flight.

What value is left in this enterprise for them? It has failed miserably, they now gain nothing from you in commercial terms other than connection to a relegated Premier League club struggling in the 2nd tier with links to match fixing, that is considered nothing more than a laughingstock by the English media. They will pull the plug over the course of the next two seasons and then its anyone's guess what will become of you.
you need to keep of the drugs
at the beginning of the season you said Blackburn would be relegated
you said jordan Rhodes would be sold in January
the debt that you keep poisting is not £ 60 million
but £54.5m £36.1m of which is owed to Venky’s;
the rest of you'r post is just crystal ball gazing dingle rubbish
if you're predictions are that good then why are you not a millionaire?
but that's not possible you're a dingle

Super_Clarets seems to have a problem with us Rovers fans being happy and optimistic. Further, most of us are impressed with Burnley and wish them well, despite the banter. What Super_Clarets serves up isn't banter, it's kind of a desperate yearning for more schadenfreude. It needs its next hit but doesn't know where it's coming from......

Why are you still so obsessed with Rovers?

You may be in a higher division but you still have a massive inferiority complex, don't you.

I guess 30-odd years of being inferior has done that to you. Plus seeing us winning two major domestic trophies, the very thing that defines the success of a football club, during that time. Two trophies that you will NEVER win, even if you live to be 1,0000 years old. Even if we never go above you again in my lifetime, which is highly unlikely, then I will be happy to say that I have seen us win the Premier League and League Cup, whereas you have won sweet FA - sorry, I'm forgetting that you won the Division 4 Championship.

Dyche, who still lives in the South, will be off soon, as will Ings and Trippier and then it will be normal service resumed. You won't be able to sign Premier League quality players as they won't want to play for the relegation favourites, in front of the lowest Premier League attendances, in a League One standard ground and train on pitches which are on a slope and subject to dog fouling.
Dyche and family live in Clitheroe. As reported in the Daily Telegraph on Easter Saturday.He drove from his home there to Blackpool on Good Friday. Otherwise a very positive post, as every forecast you lot have made this season about Burnley has been wrong, so keep it going.

The playing staff at Burnley deserve nothing but credit. But the 'fans', Turf Moor holds 22'500 people yet they averaged just 12500 this playing season, over 10% less than Blackburn who are apparently in crisis. It's why I can't take anything those so called 'fans' want to say...support your club and leave ours to us...whatever happens will happen!

There are reports coming from Burnley General that a young man presented himself there this afternoon with symptoms of Spontaneous Combustion in the Groin Area.

Doctors have now examined him and report there was nothing spontaneous about it, the problem was actually friction burns from a combination of too much excitement and too many fingers.

The patient, known to many on here as the attention seeker with the multiple accounts was, for once, unavailable to comment.

Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff, should they come down will be boosted by the fact that they have in the main Premier League squads with the benefit of enhanced parachute payments of £60million to fund a straight return.

Blackburn Rovers on the other hand are £60million in debt and from January are subject to a transfer ban until the losses (last season £36.5million, plus a further £8million deficit in parachute payments) are brought in line with the rules. This means your better players, Rhodes, Cairney, etc will be fair game for the relegated Premier League clubs and those looking to push for promotion next season, and sadly your financial situation will dictate that you have to sell.

This also means that the other mid-table clubs who have been your competition this season will all be capable of strengthening whilst you lot are left behind having to reduce your wage bill.

As much as you disagree, your best chance of a return to the Premier League was blown when you hounded out Steve Kean, a man who had you sitting comfortably in 3rd place and looking like a good shout for automatic promotion at the first attempt. His sacking and the subsequent failure of your club to recruit a proper manager in countless attempts has left you with the real possibility of finishing the season in 11th place should Wigan beat you on Saturday.

There are realistically about 10 teams in the Championship that are better than Blackburn Rovers, including the likes of Nottingham Forest and Watford who are on miserable runs but will get their acts together next season.

Considering the 3 teams likely to come down and the firce competition from those desperate to go up, particularly QPR and Derby if they don't make it this time, a mid-table finish would be about the best you can hope for next season. However my money is still on an FFP ar5ekicking for you lot and the already twitchy Venky's to consider withdrawing their support when you struggle for a third successive season outside the top flight.

Dyche and family live in Clitheroe. As reported in the Daily Telegraph on Easter Saturday.He drove from his home there to Blackpool on Good Friday. Otherwise a very positive post, as every forecast you lot have made this season about Burnley has been wrong, so keep it going.

But then I got to the part where he typed 'TWICE'...

I know you are all distressed at clearly being in the shadow of your neighbour but can’t you think about anything to say other than mention the crowds at Burnley?

Reg Rover says...

Congratulations to Gary Bowyer his team and his staff.
With one game to go a top ten finish looks certain, possibly as high as eighth.
A brave effort, possibly just a couple of points short of a play-off place.
Bowyer has given us back pride in our football team. He has established us as a Championship team instead of relegation candidates.
The progress this man has made since last season is remarkable. This time last year we had escaped a consecutive relegation by the ‘skin of our teeth’. Oblivion beckoned. Bowyer pulled us back from the brink.
His reappointment was delayed this season whilst Mrs Anuradha Desai dithered. Vital time was lost in pre-season planning and preparation. That must not happen this year.
Gary Bowyer must be given the green light to plan for the future and given whatever budget Rovers can afford him to rebuild. Unlike the awful Kean he can be trusted.
He will not squander money on ‘over the hill’ players. Or on large wages. Just look at some of the gems he has brought to Ewood this season, for very little money.
None more so than Rudy, Gesteded, and Tom Cairney. Not to mention Craig Conway and Ben Marshal. The loan signing of Michael Keane was inspirational – a young man with a bright future.
Bowyer should be publically endorsed by Anuradha (I like to be entertained) Desai, with a new longer contract with a view to stability and building for the future.
Dark clouds on the horizon are the players Bowyer has to off load, who are on massive contracts and salaries all put there by Kean in his attempt to destroy the club.
Bradley Orr, Leon Best, Ruben Rochina, and David Goodwillie to mention but a few.
All have to be moved on to ‘Free-Up’ monies for new players.
Then there is the tricky problem David Dunn – new contract or not. Or is it time Rovers said goodbye to their faithful and popular servant. He has been good for Rovers but at the same time Rovers have been good to him, especially in view of all his injury problems.
Football is a brutal business, as David Moyes would testify, but hard decisions have to be taken.

Attendance figures are all that remain in a Blackburn fans locker to throw at Burnley.

Pitiful and embarrassing.

As is the complete disregard for the fact that Blackburn has a 50% larger catchment area and, as they take so much pleasure in stating, have spent 20 years in the Premier League. Well done. So where are all your supporters?

Next season Burnley will see a full house at every game, the atmosphere will be electric just like in 2009 when we beat the likes of Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham.

Meanwhile down at Ewood the mighty Brentford will be turning up on a wet and windy Tuesday night. I wonder what the attendance will be for that fixture. I will make a point of reminding you clowns when it arrives.

As stated above, your owners non-attendance is nothing less than a disgrace and speaks volumes of their complete and utter contempt of the supporter base at Blackburn Rovers. To be struck by missiles when entering the ground of the club that you own is unacceptable and simply means they will distance themselves further such that your pathetic cries for money next season will fall on deaf ears.

It's like a slow motion car crash, you really should look away but the destruction is just so compelling.

Well said Reg. Bowyer certainly has an eye for a good value player and is building a team which can mix it up to good effect. He has won the away fans over with the nice touch gifts to the crowd,notably at Yeovil, Birmingham and latterly Charlton. The family feel of our great club is slowly returning. It would not surprise me to see the sweetest of circumstances next year, in that Rovers will replace the B******* in the top flight. There is more responsibility on the Venkys than ever now.

I fear for you lot next season, and here's why..

Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff, should they come down will be boosted by the fact that they have in the main Premier League squads with the benefit of enhanced parachute payments of £60million to fund a straight return.

Blackburn Rovers on the other hand are £60million in debt and from January are subject to a transfer ban until the losses (last season £36.5million, plus a further £8million deficit in parachute payments) are brought in line with the rules. This means your better players, Rhodes, Cairney, etc will be fair game for the relegated Premier League clubs and those looking to push for promotion next season, and sadly your financial situation will dictate that you have to sell.

This also means that the other mid-table clubs who have been your competition this season will all be capable of strengthening whilst you lot are left behind having to reduce your wage bill.

As much as you disagree, your best chance of a return to the Premier League was blown when you hounded out Steve Kean, a man who had you sitting comfortably in 3rd place and looking like a good shout for automatic promotion at the first attempt. His sacking and the subsequent failure of your club to recruit a proper manager in countless attempts has left you with the real possibility of finishing the season in 11th place should Wigan beat you on Saturday.

There are realistically about 10 teams in the Championship that are better than Blackburn Rovers, including the likes of Nottingham Forest and Watford who are on miserable runs but will get their acts together next season.

Considering the 3 teams likely to come down and the firce competition from those desperate to go up, particularly QPR and Derby if they don't make it this time, a mid-table finish would be about the best you can hope for next season. However my money is still on an FFP ar5ekicking for you lot and the already twitchy Venky's to consider withdrawing their support when you struggle for a third successive season outside the top flight.

What value is left in this enterprise for them? It has failed miserably, they now gain nothing from you in commercial terms other than connection to a relegated Premier League club struggling in the 2nd tier with links to match fixing, that is considered nothing more than a laughingstock by the English media. They will pull the plug over the course of the next two seasons and then its anyone's guess what will become of you.
you need to keep of the drugs
at the beginning of the season you said Blackburn would be relegated
you said jordan Rhodes would be sold in January
the debt that you keep poisting is not £ 60 million
but £54.5m £36.1m of which is owed to Venky’s;
the rest of you'r post is just crystal ball gazing dingle rubbish
if you're predictions are that good then why are you not a millionaire?
but that's not possible you're a dingle

Who gives a flying fu€k what you think. top ten finish for rovers this year . Great cause last year we were gone finished the flood gates were open all top players gone doomed tumble weeds etc. things are looking good for us a young team starting to come together players wanting to put a shift for a decent wage.

As is the complete disregard for the fact that Blackburn has a 50% larger catchment area and, as they take so much pleasure in stating, have spent 20 years in the Premier League. Well done. So where are all your supporters?

Next season Burnley will see a full house at every game, the atmosphere will be electric just like in 2009 when we beat the likes of Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham.

Meanwhile down at Ewood the mighty Brentford will be turning up on a wet and windy Tuesday night. I wonder what the attendance will be for that fixture. I will make a point of reminding you clowns when it arrives.

As stated above, your owners non-attendance is nothing less than a disgrace and speaks volumes of their complete and utter contempt of the supporter base at Blackburn Rovers. To be struck by missiles when entering the ground of the club that you own is unacceptable and simply means they will distance themselves further such that your pathetic cries for money next season will fall on deaf ears.

It's like a slow motion car crash, you really should look away but the destruction is just so compelling.
Must have been a baby boom in Burnley since last time you went up.
Your very first game was against United,and you couldn't sell out for that one.

It certainly will.

Looking down on poor old penniless Blackburn Rovers floundering in the Chumpionship, saddled with a transfer embargo as punishment for living beyond their means, unmanageable debts, horrific losses, the sale of all decent players, and the further soiling of the reputation of Jack Walker as clueless Indian chicken farmers plot their exit strategy as the Blackburn Rovers League One express picks up speed. Choo Choo!

6. Rovers leg-end David "the pie inhaler" Dunn going to Accy Stanley on a free after failing to secure a new no-dad contract (I wonder if he'd sh1t out of the Bury, Morecambe and Fleetwood derby games as well).
7. Venkys executing their exit strategy as they decide they have flogged a dead horse (which might be a good night out for most Blackburn dungaree lovers) for long enough, calling in the debt owed to them by the club.

Rovers leg-end David "the pie inhaler" Dunn going to Accy Stanley on a free after failing to secure a new no-dad contract (I wonder if he'd sh1t out of the Bury, Morecambe and Fleetwood derby games as well). 7. Venkys executing their exit strategy as they decide they have flogged a dead horse (which might be a good night out for most Blackburn dungaree lovers) for long enough, calling in the debt owed to them by the club. 8. The inevitable sequence of destruction that will see the more oars over the side as the Dumpburn canoe heads for league 1 sh1t creek. Oh yes, I can't wait for next season. Bang tidy. Steven Seagull

I fear for you lot next season, and here's why..

Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff, should they come down will be boosted by the fact that they have in the main Premier League squads with the benefit of enhanced parachute payments of £60million to fund a straight return.

Blackburn Rovers on the other hand are £60million in debt and from January are subject to a transfer ban until the losses (last season £36.5million, plus a further £8million deficit in parachute payments) are brought in line with the rules. This means your better players, Rhodes, Cairney, etc will be fair game for the relegated Premier League clubs and those looking to push for promotion next season, and sadly your financial situation will dictate that you have to sell.

This also means that the other mid-table clubs who have been your competition this season will all be capable of strengthening whilst you lot are left behind having to reduce your wage bill.

As much as you disagree, your best chance of a return to the Premier League was blown when you hounded out Steve Kean, a man who had you sitting comfortably in 3rd place and looking like a good shout for automatic promotion at the first attempt. His sacking and the subsequent failure of your club to recruit a proper manager in countless attempts has left you with the real possibility of finishing the season in 11th place should Wigan beat you on Saturday.

There are realistically about 10 teams in the Championship that are better than Blackburn Rovers, including the likes of Nottingham Forest and Watford who are on miserable runs but will get their acts together next season.

Considering the 3 teams likely to come down and the firce competition from those desperate to go up, particularly QPR and Derby if they don't make it this time, a mid-table finish would be about the best you can hope for next season. However my money is still on an FFP ar5ekicking for you lot and the already twitchy Venky's to consider withdrawing their support when you struggle for a third successive season outside the top flight.

What value is left in this enterprise for them? It has failed miserably, they now gain nothing from you in commercial terms other than connection to a relegated Premier League club struggling in the 2nd tier with links to match fixing, that is considered nothing more than a laughingstock by the English media. They will pull the plug over the course of the next two seasons and then its anyone's guess what will become of you.
One of the better written articles you have posted on here.

However

A January transfer ban which we will be aware of in advance would hardly be a problem. Simply ensure the squad is correct before any ban happens, which as Barcelona have just proved is no foregone conclusion. (bans happening not comparing our squad to theirs)

Venky's aren't "twitchy" why do you think they are ?

You are 18 months out of date saying we are the "laughingstock of the media"

Nice try but the last couple of months have proved we are not far away now we have a near full squad to choose from.

Evans refusing to rule out getting into the playoffs, though Wigan WILL put beyond us tonight, is like Yeovil still clinging onto getting out of the bottom 3 or Burnley not getting relegate from the Prem with a record points low.

Nearly a good post super dingle but can I ask you to look in your own back yard? What makes you confident that your own clubs board will spend any premier league money? After all Mr. Flood has conveniently arrived back on the board in an unusually short space of time after IVF (sorry I mean IVA!).

This means your better players, Rhodes, Cairney, etc will be fair game for the relegated Premier League clubs and those looking to push for promotion next season, and sadly your financial situation will dictate that you have to sell.

This also means that the other mid-table clubs who have been your competition this season will all be capable of strengthening whilst you lot are left behind having to reduce your wage bill.

As much as you disagree, your best chance of a return to the Premier League was blown when you hounded out Steve Kean, a man who had you sitting comfortably in 3rd place and looking like a good shout for automatic promotion at the first attempt. His sacking and the subsequent failure of your club to recruit a proper manager in countless attempts has left you with the real possibility of finishing the season in 11th place should Wigan beat you on Saturday.

There are realistically about 10 teams in the Championship that are better than Blackburn Rovers, including the likes of Nottingham Forest and Watford who are on miserable runs but will get their acts together next season.

Considering the 3 teams likely to come down and the firce competition from those desperate to go up, particularly QPR and Derby if they don't make it this time, a mid-table finish would be about the best you can hope for next season. However my money is still on an FFP ar5ekicking for you lot and the already twitchy Venky's to consider withdrawing their support when you struggle for a third successive season outside the top flight.

What value is left in this enterprise for them? It has failed miserably, they now gain nothing from you in commercial terms other than connection to a relegated Premier League club struggling in the 2nd tier with links to match fixing, that is considered nothing more than a laughingstock by the English media. They will pull the plug over the course of the next two seasons and then its anyone's guess what will become of you.
Why are you still so obsessed with Rovers?

You may be in a higher division but you still have a massive inferiority complex, don't you.

I guess 30-odd years of being inferior has done that to you. Plus seeing us winning two major domestic trophies, the very thing that defines the success of a football club, during that time. Two trophies that you will NEVER win, even if you live to be 1,0000 years old. Even if we never go above you again in my lifetime, which is highly unlikely, then I will be happy to say that I have seen us win the Premier League and League Cup, whereas you have won sweet FA - sorry, I'm forgetting that you won the Division 4 Championship.

Dyche, who still lives in the South, will be off soon, as will Ings and Trippier and then it will be normal service resumed. You won't be able to sign Premier League quality players as they won't want to play for the relegation favourites, in front of the lowest Premier League attendances, in a League One standard ground and train on pitches which are on a slope and subject to dog fouling.
The playing staff at Burnley deserve nothing but credit. But the 'fans', Turf Moor holds 22'500 people yet they averaged just 12500 this playing season, over 10% less than Blackburn who are apparently in crisis. It's why I can't take anything those so called 'fans' want to say...support your club and leave ours to us...whatever happens will happen!
I know you are all distressed at clearly being in the shadow of your neighbour but can’t you think about anything to say other than mention the crowds at Burnley? They will have full houses at every match next season. What will your crowds be next year I wonder. I would not be optimistic. And what of your owners? Can be in Blackburn on a Thursday to meet the Queen but not on Friday to see their team. Truly disgraceful. They are clearly not fans. The Walker trust must have thanked the Lord God Shiva when the Venky’s rolled up and bought the Rovers. It’s not normal for Indian businessmen to make a bad investment but it’s happened here.
It may be worthwhile you reading the posts before you re-post with your ill thought out and negative comments. I've nothing but praise for the way Burnley FC has gone about it's business this year, I have no real view on next year, but wish the club well. My post was about the lack of interest shown by the town, poor crowds home and away in a promotion season and then I read some of the posts your clubs fans make and it riles a little, that's all...it's a relevant topic in the context of this thread.

You forgot the bit where we beat you. Remember that?

Sean Dyche will lead us to a comfortable mid-table finish. The tears will be all your Mungo. Financial Fair Play is going to tan your backsides next season.

Keep looking up!
You lot will still have wooden seats in your tin shed ground next decade. Turf Moore is a disgrace and an embarrassment to north west football clubs. The crown ground looks like wembley compared to that sh1t hole. Let's see if any of the £120 M is spent there shall we retard?

Can't say I particularly care about the facilities in the away end to be honest.

I'm far more interested in what's going on pitchside, which in case you missed it has been immense this season. We are on track to break yet another record and finish the season on 95 points.

The fact that we've taken away your 34 year comfort blanket, laughed at you floundering in mid-table all season and now having to resort to the only crumb of comfort you can find which is a comparison of football stadium facilities makes it all the more amusing. What a muppet.

Keep looking you up jealous dribbling imbecile.
