    So One assumes that all Blackburn fans now agree that Venkys are in fact your football saviours, cost-cutters, season ticket giver awayers and are generally saving your club from financial meltdown?

    SO WTF have you all been doing protesting against them for the best part of four years? Are you all retarded? Because without them you are well and truly shafted.

    Cue the Venkys In banners from the most deluded and fickle fans in football - maybe your owners will eventually be able to actually attend a match without being in fear of reprisals from you knuckle draggers?

    Just lol.
    What's up Charlie, worried we might get bigger gates than you? Imagine the shame.

    Just for the record no one see's Venkys as football saviours, it just appears that they are actually attempting to right some of the horrific wrongs they were guilty of - but in true dingle style you chose to manipulate it to suit your latest rubbish attempt at banter.....
    Meanwhile, dingles are having to re-mortgage their caravans to afford a season ticket. Just mega lol.
    So it's Venkys In then? Yes? No snowballs next time they visit and a standing ovation from the entire Ewood Park crowd? Of course it won't be, because you fools can't see beyond the end of your big neanderthal foreheads and realise that Blackburn with Venkys = survival and Blackburn - Venkys = financial oblivion.

    So I am sure we can expect a good majority of those 'Missing 15000' fans that you and your ilk have been informing everyone that were not attending Ewood as they were protesting about Venkys, to return to the fold next season?

    You lot are just hilarious, just because you got relegated from the Premier League (As do three clubs EVERY season by the way), you dolts took it as some kind of a personal insult and decided that someone had to be blamed so it was: Venkys, Shebby Singh, Steve Kean, Jerome Anderson, etc etc were ALL to blame. There is no reason to blame anyone, it is just footballing fate that once your Fat Jack money ran out and your couldn't artificially compete with the bigger clubs, you were bound to get relegated.
    Instead of dealing with it and getting behind your club you all decided to protest and embarrass yourselves by crying and turning every atmosphere at home and away games into a poisonous protest-fest of stupidness.

    You all know right that you aren't going up next season? You scraped up to a pezzy eighth place last season despite your best unbeaten run for eversomany years, but lets be honest you would have been bummed off any of the clubs that finished in the play-off positions.
    I would just brace yourselves for a plethora of free transfers (It looks like you are fighting with League Two Southend for one player - lol) and unwanted rejects as Mr Monotone Bowyer attempts to turn a the sows ear that is Blackburn into a silk purse that matches the acheivements of Burnley.
    Oh dear Charles, oh very dear.

    I haven't really got the time or interest to pick through that horrific attempt at banter other than to say we've been relegated before and don't seem to remember any Brian Kidd out banners. Words such as achievements & jealous in the context of Rovers and Burnley go hand in hand - we've achieved what you never will (and don't compare Div 1 half a century ago to the Premier League era) and the word jealous should be incorporated into your town crest - and yet here you are using those very words because you think one good season erases history. IT'S HILARIOUS!
    Every single one of you are world class bull sh*tters - the myths, lies, hypocrisy, contradiction just oozes from you without even realising it - just mega fookin lol. MEGA FOOKIN LOL!
    Burnley have achieved a place in the Premier League WITHOUT the massive financial investment that Blackburn Rovers needed. We have done it twice. To reach the Premier League having spent just £450k is a truly astounding achievement considering the pay-off runs upwards of £120million.

    The jealousy is of course all yours as you and your fellow circus clowns frantically try to pick holes in what was a truly glorious season for Burnley FC, while your own tin-pot outfit are now saddled with horrific debts and must sell to survive under the sensible governance of Financial Fair Play.

    We beat you, we went up, we kept you down. What a season. It's 2014 and we are now better than you in every single department.

    Better football team
    Better manager
    Better coaching staff
    Better support
    Better boardroom
    Better prospects
    Better future

    You simply refuse to accept that in the space of 3 short seasons your whole world has gone belly-up. I will say this once again. Blackburn Rovers are....

    STAYING.
    DOWN.
    FOREVER.
    Better football team? You have three of four decent players and you play to their strengths, whenever I have seen you on the box you have a tendency to soak up pressure then catch the other side on the break. Pretty boring to be honest, but it does get results.

    And two of those players if social media is to be believed aren't going to sign new contracts unless the offers are seriously increased to PL standards.

    Better manager? Time will tell, he inherited the bulk of the squad and backroom staff from the previous manager, (who I think on the evidence of this season is extremely underrated) lets see how Dyche does now he has to sort it out for himself, the portents aren't good though are they, see if he is in a job by Christmas.

    GB on the other hand is having to build his own squad from scratch which is a somewhat more exacting proposition, so under the circumstances I would put it 51 - 49 in his favour at present.

    Ditto better coaching staff.

    Better boardroom, really can't stop laughing at that, at least we only have Venky's in charge, you have a group of penny pinching shysters who have been queuing up all season so they can take their cut of whatever you earn next season, like they did last time.

    The only club in the country to sign more board members than players in a season.

    Didn't one of them go bankrupt and quit the club after you were relegated last time only to rejoin this year? Probably smells another financial killing.

    And you think a board that is ripping off it's own fans and treating them like s**t is better than ours? Dream on moron.

    And as for better fans, Every club and supporter thinks it's fans are the best but an higher percentage of Rovers fans have stuck with the club through possibly the worst time in it's history, where would you have been in that situation?

    Better prospects....my Gawd, you really do need to wake up to reality £16 million to "spend" on players to keep you in the PL? The only people at Burnley with "better prospects" are your board.

    Better future? What happened after you were relegated last time?
    Just wow, a few points that I just couldn't let lie.

    51-49 in favour of Dyche over Bowyer? Really? Absolute comedy gold

    Burnley play pretty boring football do they? Scored more goals than you, conceded less goals than you, won more games, lost less games, got 23 more points, finished much higher etc etc ad infinitum.

    'If social media is to be believed' - There is your problem, don't believe social media you clown.

    the rest is just the rantings of an insecure madman."

Rovers offer fans a 'golden' ticket

BLACKBURN Rovers are to give away 20 ‘golden season tickets’ to celebrate the anniversary of their Premier League title triumph – and they have also announced only modest price rises for the new campaign.

The 2014/15 season will be the 20th anniversary of Rovers’ title-winning campaign in 1994/95 and Rovers are marking the milestone by handing out 20 free season tickets. More details will be unveiled by the club today.

Season tickets go on sale today and Rovers are again offering one of the cheapest season ticket deals in the country, as well as retaining the ‘Premier League pledge’ – meaning that fans will get 75 per cent off season tickets for 2015/16 if the club go up.

The cheapest adult season ticket at Ewood Park next term will cost £249, with under 17s prices frozen at £60.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer said: “We have tried to build a young, energetic team, playing for each other, committed to the cause – one that fans can identify with.

“I hope they will join us for the forthcoming season and support us in getting this club back where it belongs – the Premier League.”

Season tickets in the Riverside Stand, Blackburn End and Darwen End cost £225 for adults a year ago.

For 2014/15 Riverside Stand season tickets are priced at £249, with Blackburn End and Darwen End tickets priced at £279.

Tickets in the Jack Walker Stand wings have increased from £340 to £379, while seats in the centre of the Jack Walker Stand are up to £429 from £399.

Rovers say the prices are the second cheapest in the Championship behind Blackpool.

Tickets for 17 to 21-year-olds and senior citizens will cost £159 in the Riverside Stand, £179 in the Blackburn End and Darwen End, £199 in the Jack Walker wings and £309 in the Jack Walker centre.

Under 17s tickets cost £60 in all areas of the ground apart from the centre of the Jack Walker Stand, where they are priced at £99.

Under eights can get a free season ticket in the Blackburn End Family Stand when an adult or senior citizen season ticket is also purchased.
