Lets be positive guys and gals! Ive posted elsewhere the fact that the Premiership consists of such luminaries as Reading, Southampton, Norwich, Swansea, Fulham, Stoke and Wigan whilst the Championship has Bolton, Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday,Huddersfield Town and Wolves.The football world has turned upside down! Clubs with such a rich history and tradition have to look up to the anonymous 7!In terms of derbies and roses battles next season could turn out to be rather enjoyable1


I'll enjoy taking in some aways, some new boozers and villages along the way.

But the football? Get real, it's gonig to be bloody awful.

So chants available for Away Matches:

- WE WANT VENKYS OUT
- GOING DOWN WITH THE KEANO
- FIRST DIVISION HERE WE COME
- WE ONLY SING WHEN WE'RE LOSING

Interspersed with WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH
and a new one featuring 'Buddy' Bradley

Or for the Bench....COLIN COLIN NEXT TO THE ARSE!

I'm sure Leeds/Sheff Wed fans and so on have felt much better by going 'yeah well Blackburn v Bolton, Wigan v West Brom, we are better down here for our big derby with Barnsley'.

for the first time ever, so so underwhelemed by the release of the fixtures...
in the past i would have been devouring the list, looking at where we pick up points, etc
today, i barely glanced at them.

I'm the same; I couldn't give a toss about most of these fixtures. And even the ones where I have some interest [mainly the ones where I have friends who support the opponents or where I have friends/family who live near away grounds, specially those I've not visited before], I can't really summon up any of my old enthusiasm.

I've finally reached my Tipping Point with the Venkys-owned Rovers; and do you know what it was? The sacking of Anthony Bloch! I don't know the guy; I don't really know what he did; I don't know who at Ewood would be in a position to decide he wasn't good enough to be retained; but, as Baz put on the relevant thread:

There's literally gonna be no one left to run things.

Feel sorry for the guy, gave up a decent job at Everton to come to Rovers, 12 months later he's got no job.


And okay, we may have recruited Ian Sylvester [for Board Members of a certain vintage: he's not related to Peter Sylvester, is he?! ;) ]; but the whole fabric of the club seems to have been undone.

I read that Bloch had been sacked as I was planning to go to the FC United friendly to clock up another ground [Stalybridge] where I'd have seen Rovers and thought, "What IS the point?" It just feels, for reasons none of us can comprehend, like our owners are hell-bent on destroying the club. So, even Spotland on 25th July, only a 2-bus journey from m1st Mansions, is now a no-go for me.

Others can summon up enthusiasm for local derbies; I hope you enjoy being at all those Derbies and Roses battles you're looking forward to ;) , but you won't see me there.

Unless the club is sold in the meantime.

Is Championship football shown live on the TV in the UK on a regular basis?

I'm trying to work out how I may 'get' some viewing out here.

Edited by AllRoverAsia, 22 June 2012 - 07:15 AM.

Those were the days my friends....I was there that day!!

The first Rovers game I saw was at Ewood on Saturday 7th September 1963 - Rovers 7 v Spurs 2, attendance: 20,949

(Rovers scorers - McEvoy 4, Douglas 1, England 1, Pickering 1)

Rovers team: Else,Bray,Newton,Clayton,England,McGrath,Ferguson,McEvoy,Pickering,Douglas,Harrison

(Only 3 in that team cost a transfer fee: Else £20k, Harrison £20k and Ferguson £2k)

There's usually a live match or two on Sky most weekends. The 3pm kick offs are very rarely found on a stream- so I'm assuming they aren't often found live on foreign TV.

There's a game a week on Sky I think and every so often there's a game randomly on BBC.
