Not sure where to put this. I always find these signs a laugh. But have a new favourite. The Dingles are in town.

*sigh* Yes, all lives matter. That is what the BLM movement is about. No one has said that white lives don't matter. When the police created the blue lives matter, did you or other people complai

I hope they get owners who invest the club and City. It's my favourite city for night outs. Had some of my best nights outs there. 

What has night outs got to do with football? I had some of my best nights out in Blackburn

Cos when I do football away days I tend to stay over the night and enjoy the night life. Been doing it for last 15 years

I have been enjoying nights out for the last 40 years. Most have had little to do with football. Although some of the afternoons have

To tell you the truth, I couldn’t give a toss who takes over the barcodes 

Yer....I'm not a fan of newcastle at all. A lot of my mates support them and this is going to be nightmare.

Amnesty international have written to the PL to voice their concerns. It won't make any difference though.

Well given who else has passed the fit and proper test I hardly think the minor detail of having someone murdered is going to cause much of a stumbling block. After all what has it got to do with football? 

As for wanting a club to do well because of how good it's night life is - I'm a little shocked as to this becoming a valid reason for wanting a team to do well. I mean what if Manchester or Chelsea was the best night out? More to the point how does a night out class as a legitimate criteria for a club's success. Take Sunderland or Carlisle as teams with very loyal fans perhaps deserving of success. Wouldn't recommend a night out in either, but feel fan loyalty and the hard times they have are perhaps better indicators of wanting a football team to do well, mainly because you know, they're linked to football! 

Incidentally @chaddyrovers if you like a night in Newcastle then you don't want them doing well. We ain't going up anytime soon so your best bet for a night in Geordie land is them crashing back down again.

who says we wont be going anytime soon? 

I lived 25 mins from Manchester city centre so I could go there any time I want. 

I have enjoyed many a night out around the country following my team in away games.

When I was in my early twenties I had a few good nights out in Burnley.

It didn't give me any sort of footballing dilemma although if asked where I came from I did say Haslingden a few times !

The inconsistent runs we have been on, not being in top 6 all season, the injuries (or now the coming back from injuries getting up to speed) our bottling it when we had a chance to get in top 6, the chopping and changing of the team, the playing players out of position, the reliance on other teams to mess up, our history in this division and - less empiracal I admit - my gut feeling. All the others are fact based though.

Oh and so sorry for forgetting our bat nuts incompetent owners. Every little hinders.

Not my point! My point was not whether you could access them. Rather given as a Rovers fan you probably dislike manure and Chelsea (and you really as a football fan should) that regardless of how good the nightlife is there, you wouldn't want these teams to do well. I'm pointing out that it is not a good idea, in fact it is illogical, to link wishing a team to do well based on the quality of the local nightlife.

Yeah me I'm usually depressed after a loss (maybe my choice of games) or use it as an excuse to see mates and family in other parts of the country.

As their accent is very different to most Lancashire accents, my Accy/Blackburn hybrid accent sticks out like a sore thumb over there!

It has raised a few questions from the natives, but I work in Nelson, so know plenty of Burnley fans and also from home, so I’ve always been alright!

Many of my away games where I enjoyed night outs were when we had Hughes or Allardyce as manager in the Premier League days.

I don't dislike Chelsea at all. I hope they do well with Lampard in charge. I don't dislike or Like Man Utd one way or other now. Very different thoughts comparing my days as a child at primary school.

As long as we are top 6 by end of the season I'm not assed about now.

Well you can substitute whatever teams you don't like in the point still stands. Do you see the point I am making though?

Well this doesn't wash for 2 reasons. 

Reason 1 is that we are arsed about now as the now has a big impact on whether we can make top 6 at the end of the sesson! Clearly being a few points off is much better then say if we were in Wigan's position. So yeah, I think we are arsed about where we are now. 

Reason 2 is that you have diverted the conversation again. You asked why won't we be top 6, I gave you a list of reasons why we won't be top 6, and you have ignored the validity of them all saying only the final position matters. The question was why won't we make top 6 to which I gave a (what I thought) was a rather compelling answer. Rather than engage with it at all - which of my points are valid, which you disagree with and why, what are the reasons that you think we will make it - you change it to a statement seperate from this debate that only the final position matters. One is a statement of liklihood and engaging analytically about the team, the other is just sidestepping it into a cliche. I appreciate there is room to get top 6 - but the original question which you have ignored, is how likely this is. Do you see the difference and the verbal dodging that you have done?

You have to laugh at the Newcastle fans they have been great moralists for years against Mike Ashely and his businesses and yet they cannot contain their excitement at being bought by a man who makes Mike Ashley look like a combination of Mother Teresa, Florence Nightingale and father Christmas. 

The authorities simply must act to stop this deal happening. If this was Rovers in this situation then I'd rather have another 50 years of the Venkys than have the butcher Bin Salman's money anywhere near my club.

We have Arabs who work people to death owning clubs, so why not someone who orders murders in embassies and encourages Suicide bombers?

Or “characters “ as vinjay would say ?

“Sack the board... sack the board, sack the board, sack the board..”
“We want Arabs out, say we want Arabs out...”

Just imagine when all this starts- a club that has ungrateful supporters, that protest at the drop of a hat, matched with an Arab owner who won’t have ever seen a protest.... 

It’s obviously been approved for comedy value!

The Geordies need not worry. The FA will be along soon enough with its trusty brush and a bit of old carpet to sweep the issue under.

Random transfer generators will be able to carry on linking over priced has beens and nearly men with the club.
