10moorgate Posted January 13, 2010 Share Posted January 13, 2010 Despite the fact we're playing like dog's twos at the mo, I'm pretty dismayed to see that a fair number of Rovers fans 'boycotting' the game on Thursday (including some of my mates). It seems that a lot of people see it as a two fingered salute to Alardyce. Imagine what it feels like to be supporting a club at the bottom of the 2nd division...that'd be a reason to be disillusioned and not go, yet supporters still do it. I'm sure that many of the stay away supporters are real fans but i'm also sure there are a number who have only known thing since 1992. Who do the stay away fans support? Rovers, or whoever happens to be the manager at any given time? We've been so spoilt over the last 20 years that getting to the Semis of the Carling cup is just 'somat and nowt' Why can't us being in this semi final be seen as an occasion for 'us',the people of Blackburn, irrespective of who is managing or playing for us. It's chance for us to have a crack at the third most prestigious trophy in England. There is also a very good chance that in years to come that this kind of chance is just a pipe dream. So if you're in the camp of being unsure whether or not to go. Get down there, not to support Alardyce or even the players but to support Blackburn Rovers - the club you support.
