Bowyer: I'd love Dunn to stay at Rovers

Bowyer: I'd love Dunn to stay at Rovers

First published in Sport

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer says he would love to keep mercurial midfielder David Dunn at Ewood Park – and is also keen to bring Manchester United defender Michael Keane back to the club.

Veteran Dunn, 34, is out of contract this summer and has been linked with a host of lower league sides, while Keane impressed both Bowyer and Rovers fans during his loan spell at Ewood towards the end of last season.

Marcus Olsson is another man out of contract this summer and like Dunn, Bowyer would be more than happy to see the Swede donning the blue and white shirt again when the season kicks off in August.

And the manager said of Dunn and Olsson situation: “It’s still ongoing.

“We are still in talks with that.

“We will be continuing those talks over the next week or two. I want to keep them.

“I think everybody knows my opinion on David Dunn and what he is to Blackburn Rovers.”

Great Harwood-born Dunn, who has spent all bar four years of his 17-year professional career with Rovers, is a cult hero and made 24 appearances last season, scoring four goals.

Olsson featured on only nine occasions, although he started in the last three matches as Rovers’ staged a late charge towards an unlikely place in the play-offs.

Bowyer would also love to see Keane make a Rovers return, although he admits Manchester United may not be willing to loan the 21-year-old out to a Championship club.

Keane signed professional forms at Old Trafford on his 18th birthday in 2011 and made his senior debut in the League Cup against Aldershot later that season. He has previously been loaned out to Leicester City and Derby County before making 13 appearances for Rovers last season.

“I’ve had lots of conversations with our board to get Michael Keane,” said Bowyer.

“He’s a Manchester United player and they have a new manager.

“The lad is Premier League for me, he has that quality.

“We’ll see what happens with that but I fully expect Michael to be in and around the Manchester United first team, especially during pre-season so they can have a good look at him.”

Striker Luke Varney is set to sign a deal and Bowyer is still looking to boost his ranks in what could be a busy summer.

“We have a list of players that we have put towards to the owners and we know we are going to have to try and work very hard with that,” he said.

“Everybody is competing for players and we have to make sure we are competitive in that.”

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.

1. Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

2. Burnley are in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

3. Burnley prevented Blackburn Rovers from reaching the play-off's thereby ensuring that you are STAYING DOWN FOREVER.

It's all down to Dunny really, he isn't going to be a regular at this level now but he is another that has blue and white blood coursing through him, common sense says the coaching option while still a registered player is the one to go for.

But the other option if he wants to play on is drop a division, won't need to uproot as there are plenty of local clubs who he could do a job for, especially with his experience.

I like Olsson, he has had a terrible time with injury but in the latter part of the season we saw what he is capable of, he can cover all the left hand side from full back to wing, and we are only talking contract and salary with him, no transfer, agents or signing on fees, the added bonus being that GB knows him.

Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season

I'd keep Dunn as long as it was on a pay-as-you-play deal which falls in-line with a Championship wage. Olsson did okay in the last few games but he's certainly not worth keeping. If we're trying to trim the squad then Bowyer has got to drop the sentimentality, he obviously knows that Olsson isn't even 2nd choice in any of his positions. As for bringing players in, unless it's a right-back or centre-half, I'd hold off until we've shipped out as many of the unwanted squad players as possible.

However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

The unpalatable truth:


1. Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

2. Burnley are in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

3. Burnley prevented Blackburn Rovers from reaching the play-off's thereby ensuring that you are STAYING DOWN FOREVER.


Don't cry about it, it wont make any difference.

You really are a total idiot aren't you.

You don't get it at all.

Forget the £120 million, you haven't earned it yet, and by the time you get a sniff of it half of it will be gone.

Your transfer budget unless it is swelled by the departures of Ings etc; is a paltry £16 million, that wouldn't even buy you Suarez's knashers.

I hear Nicolas Bentner is being lined up as a replacement for Ings, well that's a great swap.

You have only sold 13,500 season tickets, most of the fans had to pay up front before March to avoid the exorbitant rises in price, some extremely reluctantly.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground or pitch
No investment in the fans.

Just a board of directors who are going to make a killing at your expense.

And to cap it all you are all ok with finishing last so you can pick up your £120 million, less transfer fees, agents fees, players salaries, directors cuts; etc, etc.

The only good thing about you clowns getting promoted is that after half a dozen games next season we won't see your arse for dust.

Because you can dish it out but not take it.

Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on 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.
The unpalatable truth:


1. Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

2. Burnley are in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

3. Burnley prevented Blackburn Rovers from reaching the play-off's thereby ensuring that you are STAYING DOWN FOREVER.


Don't cry about it, it wont make any difference.

In Venky's we trust.
It's like shooting fish in a barrel, too easy and no fun at all.

Hook, line and sinker! LOL LOL LOL.
Isn't it just.

If Carlsberg did seasons...

Beating you, going up, stopping you from sneaking into the play-off's. It really was a great season. A season you clowns will never, ever recover from.

And now the icing on the cake is seeing all the jealous no-dad's trying desperately to squeeze a positive out of a season of abject failure on all fronts ahead of a pounding by FFP while the Clarets enjoy the riches of the Premier League, a minimum income of £120million, a strengthening of the club in all departments and future financial stability. LOL!
You really are a total idiot aren't you.

You don't get it at all.

Forget the £120 million, you haven't earned it yet, and by the time you get a sniff of it half of it will be gone.

Your transfer budget unless it is swelled by the departures of Ings etc; is a paltry £16 million, that wouldn't even buy you Suarez's knashers.

I hear Nicolas Bentner is being lined up as a replacement for Ings, well that's a great swap.

You have only sold 13,500 season tickets, most of the fans had to pay up front before March to avoid the exorbitant rises in price, some extremely reluctantly.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground or pitch
No investment in the fans.

Just a board of directors who are going to make a killing at your expense.

And to cap it all you are all ok with finishing last so you can pick up your £120 million, less transfer fees, agents fees, players salaries, directors cuts; etc, etc.

The only good thing about you clowns getting promoted is that after half a dozen games next season we won't see your arse for dust.

Because you can dish it out but not take it.
We really have hurt you this season haven't we.

It's you clowns who can't take it. That much is quite obvious.

You've given it out for years and years but now the tables are turned and you have nothing left, all your money is gone, and you are run by clueless Indian chicken farmers (I still have to pinch myself at that one) you just can't take it and you start whining and crying.

Pathetic spineless supporters of a pathetic no-mark club. Instead of wishing, hoping and praying for some reversal of fortunes at some undetermined point in the future, why not just show a bit of class and accept the fact that your club is second best. There's a good lad.

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.
Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.

I'll be around! Agree with you up to a point about the directors by they way. My views (that I know you don't share about the running of football clubs) would get grid of this problem.

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.
Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.

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.
The unpalatable truth:


1. Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

2. Burnley are in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

3. Burnley prevented Blackburn Rovers from reaching the play-off's thereby ensuring that you are STAYING DOWN FOREVER.


Don't cry about it, it wont make any difference.

In Venky's we trust.
It's like shooting fish in a barrel, too easy and no fun at all.

Hook, line and sinker! LOL LOL LOL.
Isn't it just.

If Carlsberg did seasons...

Beating you, going up, stopping you from sneaking into the play-off's. It really was a great season. A season you clowns will never, ever recover from.

And now the icing on the cake is seeing all the jealous no-dad's trying desperately to squeeze a positive out of a season of abject failure on all fronts ahead of a pounding by FFP while the Clarets enjoy the riches of the Premier League, a minimum income of £120million, a strengthening of the club in all departments and future financial stability. LOL!
Truth is if you just ignore this tosser he will get tired and #### off
Just try it for a couple of weeks and see

Welsh Rover, dear boy, calm down. Just ignore them if that's your opinion of them.

Here's a little something to warm you up a touch. Burnley need a fourth forward. Vokes is out until November so, arguably, they need a fifth. How about Gestede making the switch to us for a couple of million?

Burnley fans have to pay a £100 waiver up front, what a joke.
Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.

We get your point about FFP and you are clearly very excited about little things in your life. The fans aren't bothered about FFP we will still turn up.
Do yourself a favour and jog on.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

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.
Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.
Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't.

Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet.

Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left?


So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started.

If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do.

Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket!

To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers.

So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not.

The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level.

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful.

Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
Nope, I am replying to you because I should be playing Golf today but it's been rained off so I decided to extract the urine out of the village idiot.

My back up was watching the Cricket but that's rained off as well, so far.

So I have been busy since the last time I was on helping my daughter with her GCSE English and Maths, just made lunch and thought I would have a quick look in while I am having it.

Have the Giro on in the background at the moment, at least the Sun is shining there.

BTW, £250 is an awful lot of money for some people especially if they don't have a lot coming in and have bills to pay as a priority, once again you don't think things through do you?

Dunny will take any reasonable deal to stay involved at Rovers, it's the right place for him to carve out some future role and he knows he can be a cameo squad player in cups etc, but hasn't got a regular 90 minutes in him even if he dropped to league 1 or 2.

Ollson really is second choice left back, or third choice left winger, he needs to take a deal that reflects that, or move on.

In this day and age £250 is not a lot to watch a season of football. If you don't have a lot coming in and have bills to pay as a priority then you shouldn't be worrying about the football as you have more pressing matters to deal with. Isn't that obvious?

£250....

In the Premier League this equates to £13.15 per game.
In the Championship this equates to £10.87 per game.

Burnley FC, offering the best quality and value for money football anywhere.

Perhaps you need to review your investments old man.

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.
Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.
Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't.

Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet.

Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left?


So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started.

If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do.

Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket!

To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers.

So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not.

The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level.

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful.

Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.
Call it nine paragraphs - thanks, that's made me a few quid.

I like the bit where you think Jack Walker made Burnley play 6 seasons 2 divisions lower. That's really funny. Well done.

The rest is riddled with the usual desperation but that's what I like about you, it's what makes you the c*ck you are.

Just as I thought. No explanation for the 67 years of nothing while Burnley showed you how its done.

Clueless, classless, laughingstock of a club with spineless, insecure supporters who instinctively resort to personal insults whenever they get proved wrong, which is every day.

Look up (a division)!

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things. You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now. Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.[/p][/quote]"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota." Is that why you spend all day replying to me? Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.[/p][/quote]I've got something left, explain the following: Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley. Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley. Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record. Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley. Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley. Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football. Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley. There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down! Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.[/p][/quote]Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't. Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet. Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left? So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started. If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do. Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket! To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing. During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers. So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not. The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level. And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful. Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.[/p][/quote]Call it nine paragraphs - thanks, that's made me a few quid. I like the bit where you think Jack Walker made Burnley play 6 seasons 2 divisions lower. That's really funny. Well done. The rest is riddled with the usual desperation but that's what I like about you, it's what makes you the c*ck you are.[/p][/quote]Just as I thought. No explanation for the 67 years of nothing while Burnley showed you how its done. Clueless, classless, laughingstock of a club with spineless, insecure supporters who instinctively resort to personal insults whenever they get proved wrong, which is every day. Look up (a division)!

Welsh Rover, dear boy, calm down. Just ignore them if that's your opinion of them.

Here's a little something to warm you up a touch. Burnley need a fourth forward. Vokes is out until November so, arguably, they need a fifth. How about Gestede making the switch to us for a couple of million?
Hahaha... ''calm down''

Yes, because I wasn't just making a perfectly reasonable observation about the trolling problem, I was positively frothing at the mouth and 'typing' my thoughts by smashing my fists down onto the keyboard in a rage. Thanks for the advice (which others might confuse with being condescending), I've stopped shaking violently and my face is no longer the colour of a tomato. I owe you one, Rob.

As for your question about Gestede, it might just be worth a punt. If Ings' performance against our U21s recently is anything to go by, I can't see him being the same threat in the Premier League as he was in the Championship.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!

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.

The unpalatable truth:


1. Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

2. Burnley are in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

3. Burnley prevented Blackburn Rovers from reaching the play-off's thereby ensuring that you are STAYING DOWN FOREVER.


Don't cry about it, it wont make any difference.

In Venky's we trust.
It's like shooting fish in a barrel, too easy and no fun at all.

Hook, line and sinker! LOL LOL LOL.
Isn't it just.

If Carlsberg did seasons...

Beating you, going up, stopping you from sneaking into the play-off's. It really was a great season. A season you clowns will never, ever recover from.

And now the icing on the cake is seeing all the jealous no-dad's trying desperately to squeeze a positive out of a season of abject failure on all fronts ahead of a pounding by FFP while the Clarets enjoy the riches of the Premier League, a minimum income of £120million, a strengthening of the club in all departments and future financial stability.

Think you'd be better off looking a bit closer to home, in particular at your very own "ticking time bomb" Riverside stand which has been reported as unsafe pending a full investigation by safety officials as Venky's continue to defy the Football League by rejecting their invitation to bring Ewood Park up to Championship level.

They thought the pitch wasn't level, turns out half the stand is sinking into the river. LOL.

However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
Nope, I am replying to you because I should be playing Golf today but it's been rained off so I decided to extract the urine out of the village idiot.

My back up was watching the Cricket but that's rained off as well, so far.

So I have been busy since the last time I was on helping my daughter with her GCSE English and Maths, just made lunch and thought I would have a quick look in while I am having it.

Have the Giro on in the background at the moment, at least the Sun is shining there.

BTW, £250 is an awful lot of money for some people especially if they don't have a lot coming in and have bills to pay as a priority, once again you don't think things through do you?
In this day and age £250 is not a lot to watch a season of football. If you don't have a lot coming in and have bills to pay as a priority then you shouldn't be worrying about the football as you have more pressing matters to deal with. Isn't that obvious?

£250....

In the Premier League this equates to £13.15 per game.
In the Championship this equates to £10.87 per game.

Burnley FC, offering the best quality and value for money football anywhere.

Perhaps you need to review your investments old man.
Nope; I would rather pay £1000 to watch Rovers in the 2nd Division than 5p watching Burnley in the Champions League.

Of course neither are going to happen but even an idiot like you should get my drift.

BTW, England have just won the one day international so I am back baiting the village idiot, make the most of it because I will be back to normal and ignoring you tomorrow.

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.
Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't.

Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet.

Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left?


So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started.

If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do.

Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket!

To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers.

So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not.

The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level.

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful.

Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.
Call it nine paragraphs - thanks, that's made me a few quid.

I like the bit where you think Jack Walker made Burnley play 6 seasons 2 divisions lower. That's really funny. Well done.

The rest is riddled with the usual desperation but that's what I like about you, it's what makes you the c*ck you are.
Just as I thought. No explanation for the 67 years of nothing while Burnley showed you how its done.

Clueless, classless, laughingstock of a club with spineless, insecure supporters who instinctively resort to personal insults whenever they get proved wrong, which is every day.

Look up (a division)!
The keyboard hero now calling folk spineless & insecure. It's gotta be in your top ten.....

Anyway, seeing you've already earned me a few quid today we've formed a nice little syndicate in honor of your trolling skills.

The latest little wager is the first post of the day to the last - needless to say I'm pretty confident you'll earn me another few bob.

But wait - that's not all!! There's gonna be a few categories some of which will include:
How many times FFP is mentioned in a 12 hour period
How many times Jack Walker is blamed for everything from 1979 onwards
How many times you mention Burnley winning their first derby in 35 years
How many times you recycle the word shambles in a 12 hour period
How many times posts you make in a 24 hour period

Thanks in advance - Cha-Ching $$$$$

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful. Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.[/p][/quote]Call it nine paragraphs - thanks, that's made me a few quid. I like the bit where you think Jack Walker made Burnley play 6 seasons 2 divisions lower. That's really funny. Well done. The rest is riddled with the usual desperation but that's what I like about you, it's what makes you the c*ck you are.[/p][/quote]Just as I thought. No explanation for the 67 years of nothing while Burnley showed you how its done. Clueless, classless, laughingstock of a club with spineless, insecure supporters who instinctively resort to personal insults whenever they get proved wrong, which is every day. Look up (a division)![/p][/quote]The keyboard hero now calling folk spineless & insecure. It's gotta be in your top ten..... Anyway, seeing you've already earned me a few quid today we've formed a nice little syndicate in honor of your trolling skills. The latest little wager is the first post of the day to the last - needless to say I'm pretty confident you'll earn me another few bob. But wait - that's not all!! There's gonna be a few categories some of which will include: How many times FFP is mentioned in a 12 hour period How many times Jack Walker is blamed for everything from 1979 onwards How many times you mention Burnley winning their first derby in 35 years How many times you recycle the word shambles in a 12 hour period How many times posts you make in a 24 hour period Thanks in advance - Cha-Ching $$$$$ more bans than ray - brfc lxxv

Super carrot isn't even a Burnley fan. He used to come on here posing as a Man U fan. I suspect he or she has also been on the Burnley pages posing as a Blackburn fan. Just a troll who spends all day and night thinking up drivel to post. Pretty sad really.

As I predicted yesterday, the Burnley no-mark wastes yet ANOTHER day of his miserable life, by spending all day commenting on the pages of his teams rivals. You couldn't make it up.

What a sad lonely existence he has. I despise Burnley, so the last thing I'd do, would be to spend my entire life, researching facts and figures about them, then post them on a bloody forum. Only a complete MORON would do such a thing.

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.
Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.
Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't.

Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet.

Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left?


So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started.

If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do.

Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket!

To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers.

So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not.

The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level.

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful.

Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.
Look at present history Blackburn Rovers were in Premier League for 18 years
Burnley were in PL for one season and got relegated in 2010
Blackburn won Premier League Title in 1995
Blackburn qualified for Champion's League in 1995 as champions of England.
Blackburn qualified for UEFA for four times
Blackburn won the League Cup in 2002
Hundred years ago Blackburn won six FA Cups and Two Division One Titles.
Burnley population is 87,000 in 2011 Government census a drop of 2,000 with many houses boarded up and one of the most depressing towns in UK .
Blackburn with Darwen population 2011 Government census 147,500 up from 137,000 in 2001 .
Blackburn has better football stadia than Burnley and more crowd attendance in the last twenty years than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers is the most established Football Club in Premier League from Lancashire.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.
Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't.

Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet.

Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left?


So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started.

If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do.

Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket!

To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers.

So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not.

The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level.

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful.

Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.
Look at present history Blackburn Rovers were in Premier League for 18 years
Burnley were in PL for one season and got relegated in 2010
Blackburn won Premier League Title in 1995
Blackburn qualified for Champion's League in 1995 as champions of England.
Blackburn qualified for UEFA for four times
Blackburn won the League Cup in 2002
Hundred years ago Blackburn won six FA Cups and Two Division One Titles.
Burnley population is 87,000 in 2011 Government census a drop of 2,000 with many houses boarded up and one of the most depressing towns in UK .
Blackburn with Darwen population 2011 Government census 147,500 up from 137,000 in 2001 .
Blackburn has better football stadia than Burnley and more crowd attendance in the last twenty years than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers is the most established Football Club in Premier League from Lancashire.
You forgot to mention; Blackburn Rovers are owned by scoundrels.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more. The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps? It certainly wasn't necessary. One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it. No investment in players No investment in the ground No investment in the fans Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time. Disgraceful.[/p][/quote]"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off." No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty. A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh? What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in. You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak. Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock. Shame on you.[/p][/quote]I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers. You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain. At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you. I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year. He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty? Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans. Yep, loyal fans well looked after there. Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year. Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either. I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans. And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

A quick hypothetical question for my fellow Rovers fans. If financial constraints meant we could only do one of the following, which would you rather we did?

Sell Rochina and offer Dunn a pay-as-you-play contract knowing that, whilst he won't play every week (or last more that an hour when he does get on the pitch), he's still good enough to boss the game.

or

Wish Dunn all the best and keep Rochina, guaranteeing him more opportunities to stake a claim for the first team, knowing that, despite being a bit greedy, he has enough raw ability to be one if the best players in the division.

Personally, I'd have to let my head rule my heart and keep Rochina.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.

Now I have read your reply I can only think somebody must have stood on your head too hard when you played some sport all those years ago. Your friend the Burnley fan could have payed by Direct Debit for his ticket but I mean what’s the point of explaining that to you?
No investment in players – Course there has been. There will be more for example Gestede maybe for one– a stupid comment from you as the season has just finished and all the payers not involved in competitions are on holiday. Wait.

No investment in the ground – Not yet but so what? I don’t go to watch the ground I usually watch the match. I have a comfortable seat and a great view and its atmospheric. Love it.

No investment in the fans – Frankly I don’t what you mean do you? Best investment I could have has as happened - PROMOTION to the PREMIER LEAGUE. Couldn’t be better and at the same price as last season.

To me, the idea of hanging on to Dunn shows a wee lack of confidence from Bowyer in letting go of the past and bring in new blood (and lets be honest....Dunn has really "milked" the last 4-5 seasons).
He has not been the perfect role model by a long shoot....and for the wages he has been bleeding out of the club there are far better player(s) who well contribute and provide a positive professional approach and commitment within the squad.
Olson also must be "marginal" !?!?
Choose wisely and we will succeed.....wrong mix and it will result in another disappointing season for the fans and club in general.....question is ...does Bowyer have the experience to pulling the right squad together in time to start the season on the front foot !?

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota."

Is that why you spend all day replying to me?


Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.
I've got something left, explain the following:

Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record.
Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football.
Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley.

There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down!

Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.
Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't.

Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker.

Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet.

Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left?


So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started.

If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do.

Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket!

To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers.

So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not.

The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level.

And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful.

Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.
Look at present history Blackburn Rovers were in Premier League for 18 years
Burnley were in PL for one season and got relegated in 2010
Blackburn won Premier League Title in 1995
Blackburn qualified for Champion's League in 1995 as champions of England.
Blackburn qualified for UEFA for four times
Blackburn won the League Cup in 2002
Hundred years ago Blackburn won six FA Cups and Two Division One Titles.
Burnley population is 87,000 in 2011 Government census a drop of 2,000 with many houses boarded up and one of the most depressing towns in UK .
Blackburn with Darwen population 2011 Government census 147,500 up from 137,000 in 2001 .
Blackburn has better football stadia than Burnley and more crowd attendance in the last twenty years than Burnley.
Blackburn Rovers is the most established Football Club in Premier League from Lancashire.
And yet there you are, a struggling mid-table team if misfits and rejects in the second tier of English football while little old Burnley are a member of the elite.

You're only saying that because the facts and figures I post make you cry.
You don't post facts though do you? You post lies. Lets see:

For example you claimed Rovers trophy haul is only more than Burnleys because of Jack Walker - WRONG. Take away the Premier League and League Cup and Rovers still have 10 major honors compared to Burnleys laughable 5. Rovers are the most successful town club in the country - BY A COUNTRY MILE

You claimed Burnley spent 6 seasons in Division 4 because of Jack Walker - OH VERY DEAR

You claimed that Rovers don't hold the attendance record:
Rovers v Bolton att: 62,522
Burnley v Huddersfield att: 54,775 - WRONG AGAIN

Here's a belter for you to bullsh*t your way around:
Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and yet Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season - LOL

You better hope you get higher attendances on EVERY SINGLE GAME next season or the it will be another shameful record in the Burnley hall of shame.

I could go on but can't be bothered because I just can't.

Oh by the way, another post from you in the next hour and half and I'll get £20 from the "lets all laugh at the troll" syndicate we've set up as a form of light entertainment during the close season.

Blackburn qualified for UEFA for four times
Blackburn won the League Cup in 2002
Hundred years ago Blackburn won six FA Cups and Two Division One Titles.
Burnley population is 87,000 in 2011 Government census a drop of 2,000 with many houses boarded up and one of the most depressing towns in UK .
Blackburn with Darwen population 2011 Government census 147,500 up from 137,000 in 2001 .

Another year on £25k should help your finances no end! STAYING DOWN FOREVER..... LOVE CLARETS.x[/p][/quote]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.[/p][/quote]Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season[/p][/quote]However you like to phrase it it's a rip off. Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division; Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up. So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more. The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps? It certainly wasn't necessary. One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it. No investment in players No investment in the ground No investment in the fans Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time. Disgraceful.[/p][/quote]"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off." No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty. A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh? What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in. You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak. Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock. Shame on you.[/p][/quote]I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers. You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain. At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you. I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year. He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty? Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans. Yep, loyal fans well looked after there. Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year. Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either. I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans. And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares. We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things. You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now. Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.[/p][/quote]"Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota." Is that why you spend all day replying to me? Have you got nothing left other than a pathetic attempt at claiming that £250 is a lot of money? Burnley are now the bigger and better team, the team playing in the top flight who are now financially head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers. Accept it and move on.[/p][/quote]I've got something left, explain the following: Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley. Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley. Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record. Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley. Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley. Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football. Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley. There's a few of us having a bit of a wager on how many paragraphs you'll reply with in your frenzied attempt to deny history - so don't let me down! Oh and winning more corners in 1924 doesn't count.[/p][/quote]Blackburn Rovers have won more trophies than Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers have won more derby fixtures than Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers hold the attendance record - They don't. Blackburn Rovers have spent more years in the top flight than Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers spent 6 seasons 2 divisions above Burnley - Jack Walker. Blackburn Rovers have never played in the bottom tier of English football - There's time yet. Blackburn Rovers were formed before Burnley - The Football League began in 1888 with 12 founder members. Burnley are one of them. Is that really all you have left? So there we have it. Your entire argument is based on the fact that you fleeced a dear old man out of his life savings, and that point is proved when we look at you now minus the cash.... so where are you now? A whole division below Burnley. Right back where you started. If 25 years ago Burnley had benefitted from £100million+ then of course they would have spent more seasons in the top flight. The real achievement though is getting there WITHOUT the money, something you circus clowns will never do. Overspending everyone around you is nothing to be proud of, and the sense of shame that all Blackburn Rovers fans carry around with them must be even stronger now that you've been relegated (twice) and have rediscovered your level as a struggling mid-table side in the second tier of English football about to be penetrated by FFP. And on top of all that, you lost your 34 comfort blanket! To put it in perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing. During the same period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers. So can you explain the 67 years absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? Thought not. The simple facts is that your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection. When that money was taken away you found your true level. And just look at what you've done to Jack Walkers legacy! Indian Chicken farmers are now running his club into the ground. Shameful. Nothing frenzied, simply pointing out the facts that you seem to skip over.[/p][/quote]Look at present history Blackburn Rovers were in Premier League for 18 years Burnley were in PL for one season and got relegated in 2010 Blackburn won Premier League Title in 1995 Blackburn qualified for Champion's League in 1995 as champions of England. Blackburn qualified for UEFA for four times Blackburn won the League Cup in 2002 Hundred years ago Blackburn won six FA Cups and Two Division One Titles.

Fact is either is a bit of a risk, although keeping Dunny going might stretch to one season, but if you could get Rochina performing to his potential you could get a good few years and/or sell him on. I'd agree with you but I Would like to keep them both for next season.

You're only saying that because the facts and figures I post make you cry.
You don't post facts though do you? You post lies. Lets see:

For example you claimed Rovers trophy haul is only more than Burnleys because of Jack Walker - WRONG. Take away the Premier League and League Cup and Rovers still have 10 major honors compared to Burnleys laughable 5. Rovers are the most successful town club in the country - BY A COUNTRY MILE

You claimed Burnley spent 6 seasons in Division 4 because of Jack Walker - OH VERY DEAR

You claimed that Rovers don't hold the attendance record:
Rovers v Bolton att: 62,522
Burnley v Huddersfield att: 54,775 - WRONG AGAIN

Here's a belter for you to bullsh*t your way around:
Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and yet Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season - LOL

You better hope you get higher attendances on EVERY SINGLE GAME next season or the it will be another shameful record in the Burnley hall of shame.

I could go on but can't be bothered because I just can't.

Oh by the way, another post from you in the next hour and half and I'll get £20 from the "lets all laugh at the troll" syndicate we've set up as a form of light entertainment during the close season.

Night night f*ck head xx
I'm sorry, but I have to pull you up on this one, to reach your figure of 10 major honours you include 5 cup wins during the years 1884-1891. Really? I believe this was when football was played in top hats with 30 players on either side kicking an inflated pigs bladder around the village square. In other words utter nonsense.

The fact remains that without the massive financial investment of Jack Walker you went an astounding 67 years without silverware, during which time Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers. Indeed if it were not for Walkers millions you would have now gone 86 years without silverware.

So disregarding your comical claim of 19th century football records, that puts both clubs on 5 major honours, and given that we haven't benefited from the £100million+ cash advantage that you did, I'd say that safely puts us ahead of you in terms of pure achievement to have reached the Premier League twice. Painful but true Mungo.

Suggest you do you homework for this next one... prior to Jack Walkers investment Ewood Park was widely regarded as derelict and the financial situation at the club was dire, a descent into the lower leagues was all but inevitable... however, enter Jackpot Jack and you were saved. We weren't so fortunate. Our success has been earned the hard way, we tasted life at the bottom, and as much as the parasites from Blackburn Rovers wished for our club to fold, we survived and played our way back up to the Premier League. An achievement you lot can only dream of. Oh dear, that makes you wrong again Mungo.

And again... Burnley hold the record for the highest average attendance over a season, hence over the course of a full season Burnley have been the better supported club.... not too good at this are you Mungo.

And I notice you fail to mention that from 1959-60 (when you averaged a whole 321 more fans), your average attendances dropped horrifically, 1960-61 averaging 4484 less than Burnley, 1961-62 averaging 11219 less than Burnley, 1962-63 averaging 9179 less than Burnley, 1965-66 averaging 6455 less than Burnley, and at the end of this particular season you were relegated after finishing bottom of the league on 20 points, a whole 15 points from safety.... seems to be getting worse for you doesn't it Mungo.

The thing is you can't go on because you have simply picked out a couple of facts and figures that suit your clearly weak argument, and I once again have proved you wrong on all counts.

My advice would be give up on this lark Mungo because all you seem to do is make yourself look a bit silly, particularly as you once again show a complete lack of class with the personal insults. You come across as a very insecure and downtrodden no-dad with a huge chip on his shoulder.

Good night.

CHA CHING - You've just won me 23 whole pounds and 44 new pence, all thanks to your addiction. You just can't help yourself can you? This website, Rovers, Rovers fans, me, owd nick, stone island, HH, Lancs Pensioner, Welsh Rover, baldie et al - we're your life you dirty little mincer.

Bad news though Tarquin, the time it's taken you to somehow generate 8 paragraphs of manipulated Burnley propaganda has been one big black hole in your empty Rovers infatuated life. I've read none of it. Not a word.... except the last bit:

"You come across as a very insecure and downtrodden no-dad with a huge chip on his shoulder"
You need to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself why you are how you are.

The fact remains that without the massive financial investment of Jack Walker you went an astounding 67 years without silverware, during which time Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final won the Charity Shield twice, and spent more season in the top flight than Blackburn Rovers. Indeed if it were not for Walkers millions you would have now gone 86 years without silverware. So disregarding your comical claim of 19th century football records, that puts both clubs on 5 major honours, and given that we haven't benefited from the £100million+ cash advantage that you did, I'd say that safely puts us ahead of you in terms of pure achievement to have reached the Premier League twice. Painful but true Mungo. Suggest you do you homework for this next one... prior to Jack Walkers investment Ewood Park was widely regarded as derelict and the financial situation at the club was dire, a descent into the lower leagues was all but inevitable... however, enter Jackpot Jack and you were saved. We weren't so fortunate. Our success has been earned the hard way, we tasted life at the bottom, and as much as the parasites from Blackburn Rovers wished for our club to fold, we survived and played our way back up to the Premier League. An achievement you lot can only dream of. Oh dear, that makes you wrong again Mungo. And again... Burnley hold the record for the highest average attendance over a season, hence over the course of a full season Burnley have been the better supported club.... not too good at this are you Mungo. And I notice you fail to mention that from 1959-60 (when you averaged a whole 321 more fans), your average attendances dropped horrifically, 1960-61 averaging 4484 less than Burnley, 1961-62 averaging 11219 less than Burnley, 1962-63 averaging 9179 less than Burnley, 1965-66 averaging 6455 less than Burnley, and at the end of this particular season you were relegated after finishing bottom of the league on 20 points, a whole 15 points from safety.... seems to be getting worse for you doesn't it Mungo. The thing is you can't go on because you have simply picked out a couple of facts and figures that suit your clearly weak argument, and I once again have proved you wrong on all counts.

A quick hypothetical question for my fellow Rovers fans. If financial constraints meant we could only do one of the following, which would you rather we did?

Sell Rochina and offer Dunn a pay-as-you-play contract knowing that, whilst he won't play every week (or last more that an hour when he does get on the pitch), he's still good enough to boss the game.

or

Wish Dunn all the best and keep Rochina, guaranteeing him more opportunities to stake a claim for the first team, knowing that, despite being a bit greedy, he has enough raw ability to be one if the best players in the division.

Personally, I'd have to let my head rule my heart and keep Rochina.
Fact is either is a bit of a risk, although keeping Dunny going might stretch to one season, but if you could get Rochina performing to his potential you could get a good few years and/or sell him on. I'd agree with you but I Would like to keep them both for next season.
I think we're pretty much on the same page. I only thought up the hypothetical question when I was looking at our current squad and tried to consider ways of trimming it. Keeping Dunn and Rochina would be great for squad depth but I doubt Rochina would be happy spending so much time on the bench. I'm actually expecting him to leave if I'm honest.
Probably right there, I think he will look to stay in Spain. It's a real pity, I think with the right coaching he could have been another Matt Jansen for us.

To me, the idea of hanging on to Dunn shows a wee lack of confidence from Bowyer in letting go of the past and bring in new blood (and lets be honest....Dunn has really "milked" the last 4-5 seasons).
He has not been the perfect role model by a long shoot....and for the wages he has been bleeding out of the club there are far better player(s) who well contribute and provide a positive professional approach and commitment within the squad.
Olson also must be "marginal" !?!?
Choose wisely and we will succeed.....wrong mix and it will result in another disappointing season for the fans and club in general.....question is ...does Bowyer have the experience to pulling the right squad together in time to start the season on the front foot !?
Excellent question and one that will ultimately decide our season I think.

I guess we have to wait for his transfer choices to get an idea. We scored plenty last season especially towards the end but we conceded many too, especially needless ones where a quick tactical change may have saved a win or changed the tempo in our favour.

I love the passion Bowyer's brought back to the squad but I don't believe he'd be man enough to admit he wasn't the right man to take us back up and that's the thing that will haunt us if he doesn't start as strongly as he finished last season - hopefully with more wins than draws this time around.

You're only saying that because the facts and figures I post make you cry.
You don't post facts though do you? You post lies. Lets see:

For example you claimed Rovers trophy haul is only more than Burnleys because of Jack Walker - WRONG. Take away the Premier League and League Cup and Rovers still have 10 major honors compared to Burnleys laughable 5. Rovers are the most successful town club in the country - BY A COUNTRY MILE

You claimed Burnley spent 6 seasons in Division 4 because of Jack Walker - OH VERY DEAR

You claimed that Rovers don't hold the attendance record:
Rovers v Bolton att: 62,522
Burnley v Huddersfield att: 54,775 - WRONG AGAIN

Here's a belter for you to bullsh*t your way around:
Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and yet Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season - LOL

You better hope you get higher attendances on EVERY SINGLE GAME next season or the it will be another shameful record in the Burnley hall of shame.

I could go on but can't be bothered because I just can't.

Oh by the way, another post from you in the next hour and half and I'll get £20 from the "lets all laugh at the troll" syndicate we've set up as a form of light entertainment during the close season.

You read every word. There is no manipulation and no propaganda, simply cold, hard facts that you find so hard to accept.

And if "23 whole pounds and 44 new pence" gets you so excited perhaps you need to take a look at the bigger picture and get yourself out of the sordid little grief hole that is Shadsworth. There's a whole world out there just waiting to be explored, and minimum wage on offer if you can keep yourself clean.

Once again you let yourself and your fellow Rovers fans down with your vile personal insults which show just how much I get under your skin.

Burnley are in the Premier League, you can't change it, you just have to live with it, so try to show a bit of decency, and stop being so angry and bitter all the time.

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.
The unpalatable truth:


1. Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

2. Burnley are in the PREMIER LEAGUE.

3. Burnley prevented Blackburn Rovers from reaching the play-off's thereby ensuring that you are STAYING DOWN FOREVER.


Don't cry about it, it wont make any difference.

It's like shooting fish in a barrel, too easy and no fun at all.

Hook, line and sinker! LOL LOL LOL.
Isn't it just.

If Carlsberg did seasons...

Beating you, going up, stopping you from sneaking into the play-off's. It really was a great season. A season you clowns will never, ever recover from.

And now the icing on the cake is seeing all the jealous no-dad's trying desperately to squeeze a positive out of a season of abject failure on all fronts ahead of a pounding by FFP while the Clarets enjoy the riches of the Premier League, a minimum income of £120million, a strengthening of the club in all departments and future financial stability.

Ah, modan, you pick up your pom-poms when Venkys have said or done something. Then on you come to extoll whatever that something is. You must have been surprised that the cheap ticket gag is going down so well. I can't see that those season ticket decisions make any commercial sense and seem to me to qualify as poison pills for anyone who takes over Rovers and a blatant attempt to buy fan loyalty. Just to clarify, were it a case of Blackburn Rovers playing in the Premier League still owned by Venkys or administration followed by league 1 football without Venkys, I'd go with the 'without Venkys ' option. You missed a couple of things off your list. Winning the European Fair Play League, once and winning the European Intertoto Cup, once. Of course, you do realize that that list was what Super_ Clarets was waiting for., don't you?

In answer to your "where are they? question: two business men are vying for control of Reading and a consortium is trying to buy Birmingham. They are most definitely out there.

As you know Super_Clarets, hereafter known as Stevie, that had Rovers gained two more points from playing you our goal difference would still have been inferior and we wouldn't have got into the playoffs. As you also know, Stevie, Burnley FC had their own infusion of £100m.
Did Burnley FC build new stadium? No
Did Burnley FC assemble a squad capable of saying in the Premier League? No -they are pretty much everybody's favourite to go straight back down. Enjoy your one season in the sun, Stevie.

Bowyer wants to retain the squad with which he finished last season. 12 games undefeated is a good reason why. He's likely to be disappointed. I'd like Dunn to carry on playing for Rovers but Financial Fair Play (FFP) make doing so far less certain than in years gone by. I think someone will come in for Rochina with an offer Venkys accept. With an Indian Soccer league starting soon, it is possible that Venkys will get involved with that and take some Rovers players out to India. That may leave Bowyer with the squad that he wants. One the other hand, it may not.

Just to clarify, were it a case of Blackburn Rovers playing in the Premier League still owned by Venkys or administration followed by league 1 football without Venkys, I'd go with the 'without Venkys ' option. You missed a couple of things off your list. Winning the European Fair Play League, once and winning the European Intertoto Cup, once. Of course, you do realize that that list was what Super_ Clarets was waiting for., don't you? In answer to your "where are they? question: two business men are vying for control of Reading and a consortium is trying to buy Birmingham. They are most definitely out there. As you know Super_Clarets, hereafter known as Stevie, that had Rovers gained two more points from playing you our goal difference would still have been inferior and we wouldn't have got into the playoffs. As you also know, Stevie, Burnley FC had their own infusion of £100m. Did Burnley FC build new stadium? No Did Burnley FC assemble a squad capable of saying in the Premier League? No -they are pretty much everybody's favourite to go straight back down. Enjoy your one season in the sun, Stevie. Bowyer wants to retain the squad with which he finished last season. 12 games undefeated is a good reason why. He's likely to be disappointed. I'd like Dunn to carry on playing for Rovers but Financial Fair Play (FFP) make doing so far less certain than in years gone by. I think someone will come in for Rochina with an offer Venkys accept. With an Indian Soccer league starting soon, it is possible that Venkys will get involved with that and take some Rovers players out to India. That may leave Bowyer with the squad that he wants. One the other hand, it may not. Richard Oakley

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.
Yea, but who would pay any more than f**k all to watch B45t4rd5!

Just to put you right here. It’s not a waiver it’s a deposit and it does not apply to the 13,500 who bought their tickets prior to the early bird deadline at the end of March. If you bought before the deadline (and payment could be arranged in instalments) you got the same price as last season. SAME price for Premier league football. Rovers, ticket prices though still low, are up on last season. Of course had they increased prices to where they realistically, economically need to be the support would have dwindled more. Interesting it will be to see how many they sell anyway for the coming season
However you like to phrase it it's a rip off.

Burnley are going to coin it in next season, they have how many real, hardcore supporters who will turn up whether you ate in the PL or 3rd division;

Say 10,000 max, forget the 3,500 who jumped on the PL bandwagon when it was clear you were going up.

So they ask them to pay up front for their ST's for next season halfway through the last, and anyone who can't afford to do so ends up paying significantly more.

The fans who bought ST's last season shouldn't have had to pay up so early, it's wrong and you know it. Why was that needed? to keep you ahead of FFP perhaps?

It certainly wasn't necessary.

One of my mates, a Burnley fan as long as I have been a Rovers fan couldn't afford it before the cut off, so he is going to pick his games next season, he is pretty peed off about it.

No investment in players
No investment in the ground
No investment in the fans

Plenty of investment in "the future"; aka the Board will take control all the money coming in, like they did last time.

Disgraceful.
"However you like to phrase it it's a rip off."

No it isn't. My season ticket for next season will cost around £250. I don't consider that a rip-off, I consider that a reward for my loyalty.

A sensible move by the board to encourage the support gained through promotion to stick with the club in the future. A move that may annoy some who are simply here for the big games but is the best interests of the club and its loyal supporters. If only your club was as well run eh?

What this actually represents is the only point that you and your kind have got left to argue in a desperate attempt to distract yourselves from the lousy position which your club is in.

You are in debt to the tune of £60million and that is a shocking state of affairs for your owners to leave hanging over your club. With losses of £36.5million to handle and the need to almost give season tickets away to attract any support at all, the financial future of your club is looking very bleak.

Truly disgraceful management of a "once-proud" club, and proof if it were needed that the memory of Jack Walker has been destroyed by you, the fans, who have allowed Indian chicken farmers to turn his club into a complete laughingstock.

Shame on you.
I am simply pointing out the flaws in your argument by doing exactly what you do to Rovers.

You never think things through, all you do is gloat, quite understandable after so many years of pain.

At £250 I think you are being ripped off anyway for what you are going to endure next season, they should be paying you.

I have just copied your post above and sent it to my mate Ian who has had a ST for Burnley as long as I can remember but like me budgets for it at this time of the year.

He couldn't afford to take up the offer in time so he tells me he is just going to pick his games next season, where is his reward for loyalty?

Lost the seat he has had for years, apparently he would have been moved anyway to make way for visiting fans.

Yep, loyal fans well looked after there.

Loyal Rovers fans on the other hand who buy their ST's now will get a 75% reduction on ticket prices next season should we be promoted, that means that I will be paying just over £100 to watch PL football the season after next if that happens, and I won't even have to pay until June next year.

Even if the club were to double ticket prices, which is extremely doubtful I would still be paying less than you, and I won't have to give them my money four months earlier either.

I won't have to change my seat to make way for visiting fans either, that's how to get inventive and look after Loyal fans.

And if we don't go up, guess what; next June I will have my £400 odd ready for the season after, the only fly in the ointment being my daughter will be 17 then so instead of forking out £99 I think it will be closer to £250, but who cares.

We hardcore Rovers fans are an obdurate lot, we have seen the bottom of the 3rd division on a cold January night and the PL being won at Anfield but what people like you can't really understand is Venky's, FFP, etc; etc don't really matter in the great scheme of things.

You are just a flee on the dogs ****, irritating but easily treated with a decent flee powder; I am only replying to you because it's raining and I should be playing Golf right now.

Your opinions really don't matter to me one iota.
What's a 'flee'?
