    Excellent offer. Lets hope the fans return to Ewood. Its time to scrap the Venkys fight and get behind the team with promotion the aim
    I hate to have to agree with you but that is the reality-whether you like the Venkys or not we must support the club if we want to survive as a viable premiership club and sustain it , without the owners money to offset the rising costs our club could quite easily become a liability and end up in administration, although unlikely we cannot afford to be complacent. l look forward to an exciting season and l hope the stay away fans finally realise we made our point and now is the time to bury the hatchet and support this great club and get it back were it belongs.
    I am getting the feeling Noddy, that there is indeed a bit of a softening towards our owners at present.
    This driven by the retention of 'one of us' i.e. GB, in position as ringmaster.
    A developing squad to be proud of, and an apparent willingness of our owns to try to put some semblance of stability back.

    I would add in seconding that it would be great for all the stay away's that hold BRFC close to their hearts to get down Ewood again an give the new BRFC squad all the support they deserve, and just see what we can achieve.
    In Gary Bowyer they actually have a manager who has blue and white running through his veins and while he still has a lot to learn he is proving he knows a good player who has a decent level of skill and just as importantly a great attitude, and how to build a squad that can play decent football and win on not a lot of money spent.

    In Alan Myers they now actually have someone who understands the PR and commercial side of the game and has contacts inside one of the biggest sports network in the world, Sky.

    A chairman who simply does what a chairman should do with little fuss or bother and a small board that follows suit.

    Still huge hurdles to overcome but Venky's are finally showing a modicum of understanding of what is required to run a football club in this country, i.e; let the football people do it.

    It might be two, possibly three seasons before Venky's throw off the yolk of the Kean and Shebby era, we fans have paid a hard emotional price for their errors, theirs has been and will continue to be a financial disaster for some time to come.

    We might deride them but there is one simple, salient, fact, there are no stupid billionaire's, despite everything they continue to support us financially and have the financial clout to see it through.

    Pain, physical, emotional or financial is temporary."

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.
