I imagine there will be more than 4000 wanting a ST.

Widely reported that proof of vaccination and testing are likely to be conditions of entry for concerts and sports events.

If testing is necessary before each game. 4000 x 15 min lateral flow tests is 1000 hours so wont be happening at the turnstile.

Waggott will love it. Not a single pie wasted.

I was talking about this season. Nobody is going to buy a 2020/21 ST in May.

I’m sorry Paul, but it really has bewildered me that running Blackburn Rovers sensibly has been made to look as arduous as sewing in sparring mitts, but that is how it has been presented throughout th

The trouble is, this is a well-trodden route in the Copybook of Tony Mowbray. A week back, prior to Cardiff and following the utterly woeful and woebegone showings against Wigan and Barnsley, we neede

10000 is for stadiums with a capacity over 40000,for the rest of us its 4000 or 25% of capacity whichever is lower,doesnt matter really as our season is over before it comes into effect.Unless we miraculously make the playoffs.

I cannot find any mention of 40,000 capacity. Just  mentions Hugh stadiums, but doesn't give a definition of what that is. It could effect us, in the fact that the rules may still apply next season.

This one suggests Rovers will be just short of 8,000 (25% of capacity).

I’ve not seen a 40,000 requirement either. Sounds like a reverse engineering of the 25% rule.

Are you reading properly ?

4000

or 25%

whichever is lower.

4000 is lower than 7750

The rule is a 4000 limit but for grounds capacity below 4000 its 25%.

The 10K for grounds over 40K is on the BBC news website not on the footy site. Its for Spurs, West Ham, Wembley etc.

What is being said ,is that Ewood  qualifies as a  "large outdoor seated venue", thus would be allowed 25% of the capacity.

I still cannot find any mention of 40,000 being a limit. perhaps it is just my limited internet skills. Anyway until Mowbray is gone I won't be attending.

8000 is not really that far off our normal attendance of 12.  66% of normal can watch the game live, I presume that covers season ticket holders?

Right now we only have 2500 Season Pass holders and zero Season Ticket holders.

Thanks for the link. I would like to know where the BBC got their 40,000 figure from, I cannot see it on any government sites. The strange thing would be that 11 premier league teams have less than 40,000 capacity

Looking at this a bit more the cynic in me sees this is really just to ensure there are 10K fans allowed in Wembley for the Euro games we are hosting. Wimbledon, Grand Prix, etc.

Also to allow Wembley to stage cup finals and play-offs with 10,000 in attendance. Can you imagine the price of those tickets.

Agreed... fortunately it won't be us worrying about paying. 

The 40K is also mentioned here but as you say not specifically mentioned in the government paper.

Not being funny, but that article says stadiums of less than 40,000 will be allowed 25% of capacity.

Mowbray seems to be actively flogging Armstrong. “Future Premier League player.” And all that.

I wonder if his summer recruitment programme depends on it? I think so.

Having failed miserably in his target of the top 6 now for 3 years he will have to arm himself with something else to try to keep favour with the Indians. 

By telling them about how much players are now worth or indeed selling Armstrong for good money to a top flight club he will be able to lean back on that and promise more to come if they stick with him.

He's not as clever as he thinks he is. But he's clever enough to have worked out what he needs to do here to keep things ticking over nicely with the owners and keep him playing football manager for another year.

4 years at the helm for old Tony today.

The journey continues...

Do you not find it odd that there wasn't some huge gushing tribute to him yesterday with it being his 4th anniversary?

Even scrolling through twitter his biggest fan Benno and co haven't even piped up.
