brfcdec Posted November 6, 2010 Share Posted November 6, 2010 Is anybody feeling a bit more...tension at rovers matches? I don't mean about results, I mean crowd anxiety. I'm 19 and I haven't been going long, but with the darwen end movement and us still giving some clubs 8000 I get the feeling a lot are angered by this. I think our "take ewood back" incentive has been brilliant, but a lot are trying to make blackburn itself a much more hostile place to come, which in some ways isn't a bad thing. It infuriates me when I watch united bring 8000 when we are trying to make ewood a fortress, I would much rather see 4000 empty seats. But even in the stands I'm hearing more talk of...well not hooliganism, but...lets say "rowdyness" with the fans. I really do think fans are sick of seeing the opposition looking at blackburn away as a brilliant day out, and there are a lot of grumblings around ewood about this. Obviously i'm not condoning any violent actions, but I would like to see blackburn become once again a hard place to come. For example every ground I've been in birmingham has been very...for want of a better word..hostile. It's hard for me to say this in a way that doesn't seem to somehow condone hooliganism. I am very proud of the fact that blackburn is a friendly town, that you can walk into 99 percent of pubs as an away fan and have a good conversation with us, a feat that not many clubs can boast. But then when I went to uni and met fans of a variety of different clubs, I always get the same message: everybody loves to come to blackburn. They are treated better than the home fans, they get all the seats they want, a massive pub right next to the ground and bragging rights of blackburn. Speak to any liverpool or united fan and they will tell you that one of their favourite days out is blackburn, simply because they can do what they please. Is this right? I'm not to sure, I would like to hear your opinions Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
