  • ""Purchases of the back of profits made from the sale of players and TV money. It's called good business - Initial outlay versus return. That trend continued with profits made from Duff, Bentley & Jones all around the £17million mark. "

    So why are you now £60million in debt, facing a transfer ban and administration given that your losses cannot be brought back to a sustainable level without a complete clear out all higher earners?

    The bit you have forgotten is called business planning. An area which your club has proven to be rather poor at given your recent accounts. Burnley on the other hand will be financially secure many many years after your tin-pot club has fallen into the hands of the suits and been ripped to pieces as per Portsmouth.

    It is but a matter of time before you get your rightful comeuppance.

    Speaking of LOL's, The biggest LOL of all has to go to poor old Jack Walker himself who, on the day of your relegation, stood sobbing in the stands as his £100million+ investment was flushed down the toilet in front of his very eyes. LOL.

    You lot would give ANYTHING to be a well run club with supporters in the boardroom once again but sadly those days are long gone and your future involves clinging onto your 2nd tier status until your clueless Indian owners, much like the Walker trust before them, decide enough is enough and drop you like a bad habit. Then it's a whistle-stop tour of League One before you find your feet in the old division 4. Cheerio."

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.
