Yes. We have the whole of the Cricket Field Stand rather than it being split, which is better all round. Having said that the stand holds 3,800 but as yet we've only got 3,000 tickets because of police restrictions. Thier main concern is getting all the Rovers fans off the coaches and into the ground in time. We may get some more tickets up to a possible maximum of 3,400.

I do think it is an over reaction but if they didn't do it now and it kicked off, as I guess it still could, then the police would be asked why they'd reduced the restrictions.

As for the allocation, won't you have your usual 12000 in the home stands? ;-)

We will struggle to get 3K at the Dingledome

Agreed, its one game a season we have to do it so as much as I despise coach travel its no big deal. If we were allowed to go by train we would just be marched straight to the ground courtesy of an escort anyway, where's the enjoyment in that?

I just hope the police (and Rovers fans) have learnt some lessons from the last game when there was a potential disaster looming on the concourse as coaches arrived and too many people loitered on the concourse making it nigh on impossible to get through. On the last occasion the police relented and allowed Rovers fans to bring their drinks into the actual stadium but I don't think they will allow this to happen again. That said there will be more room on the concourse if we get the whole of the cowshed which masquerades as a stand.

the cheek of it. Mandatory draconian bus and we have to pay £6.50 for the priviledge!

Think its been subsidised to be honest - just not advertised like that.

Bolton fans had to pay £36/ 37 a ticket, ours are only £30 - so the difference is basically the coach fare.

£6.50 is the cost - no subsidy but no profit either. The price has been kept down by using a number of double deckers. This also helps get the numbers off transport and into the ground in 90 minutes.

The usual over reaction as expected..was there any mass trouble when the Youth games were played and fans had free travel?

I wonder what allocation Burnley will recieve for Ewood?...

yes there was trouble, in blackburn town centre around the boulevard area. there was also some close calls on the platform of blackburn station, and had it not been for the officers on the platform that night, all keaning hell would have broken loose.

i will be going. i dont have a problem with the policing measures before,during or after the game. i aint bothered bout not being able to drink before the game, as there is plenty of time when i get back to my apartment.

Anybody see the irony in this post....

I wonder if you'll do the usual disappearing act for months when we beat you again, ******.
