    A truly laughable response that I will not even dignify with an answer.

    Shameful effort no-dad. I'm embarrassed for you.
    Just can't handle the unpalatable truth can you?

    Good at dishing it out but you can't take it can you?

    Ings and Trippier will be gone long before Rhodes because they are both good enough to play in the PL and want PL salaries and contracts that reflect that.

    To keep them Burnley will have to offer them the upgrade, so what about the rest of the squad? Not going to be happy if they don't get their cut are they?

    That's how it all starts to fall apart.

    Not going be an awful lot left out of the massive £16 million transfer kitty either is there?

    The Burnley board however won't want to loose out, that's why they haven't invested any of the potential earnings from the coming season in keeping season ticket prices down.

    Truly shameful way to treat loyal fans especially when looking at the offers made to Rovers fans, there really is no comparison is there?

    If we go up next season people who buy season tickets this season will have a 75% reduction in prices, Rovers will bear the cost.

    Burnley fans have to pay a £100 waiver up front, what a joke."

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.
