I think that the Bolton Road residents who park their cars in that area should look after their own back yards. I don't expect my neighbours to clean up my parking spot ?‍♂️ 

So if you lived in say  a terraced house on a Public street which was littered with rubbish outside your house, you wouldn't tidy it up a bit?

Look through the windows. There's even trees growing inside. 

So true Andy. In 1969 the big FA Cup match against Man City was called off several times. Before one of the postponements Rovers put a call out for volunteers to help clear the snow off the pitch. Alo

Again it comes down to a complete lack of interest from India. No way would people like Waggott get away with the ground being in the state it is at any other club. You look at Andy Holt at Accy he ha

Well it should people's responsibility to not drop rubbish in the 1st place and council should have sorted already since it's not Rovers land 

Obviously in a perfect world, but litter does get about sadly, and you think the club would have a little more pride rather than shrugging their shoulders and saying "not our problem."

I don’t think BRFC should be getting grief for anything on the left of that fence. Because yes, I absolutely would tidy my own back yard, and would never expect the neighbour from the right hand side of the fence to ferret around my parking space clearing my rubbish up!

I note you ignored my question completely!

Bits of Rubbish piled up against the perimeter of Ewood Park might technically  not be Rovers responsibility but it's poor not to tidy it up regardless.

Exactly, it's the main entrance to the stadium. Any company with any pride should want the best first impressions to be made on any visitor, whoever they are.

The excuses offered make it even worse and border on pathetic. As Mercer said, just get it bloody sorted.

IMO, a can't be arsed attitude prevails at Ewood.

IMO, a rocket up several arses needed.  Better still, sack, IMO, the bunch of can't be arsed / lazy b@st@rds and appoint folk with real pride in the club and its community.

Hard to disagree.

With the season four games in, we still haven't opened the Club shop have we? I note Swag was reluctantly talking on that podcast about opening it up for "a couple of days a week" until Christmas.

The cost saving between having it open and not must be absolutely negligible, a bit of electricity, but yet again it's about showing pride in your Club and demonstrating a presence, that you're still here, open for business and ready to help people out with what they require if needed.

Of course the club got pride but it isnt on Rovers land so why is it Rovers problem? It's a Blackburn with Darwen council so go and complain at them. Did you send an email about it to them? That's why we pay council tax for isnt it?

No, and ultimately it might not be their direct responsibility, but youd think that they would be perturbed to see the current state especially having received complaints. For what its worth, and for their own sense of pride, id expect them to clean it up.

Again, I find it strange to see anyone defending the clubs continued lack of pride under these owners. But there you go.

Come on chaddy, you need to be a bit realistic on this, the Council might act if a mountain of  rubbish ten feet high was suddenly dumped overnight against the perimeter fencing but they aren't going to keep coming down on a regular basis  to clear bits of debris the Club could easily tidy up.

Did you send any emails to Rovers or council complaining about the mess? 

You complain about anything you can about the club these days

The council has been working so they should be doing their jobs otherwise what the point in pa

I see Chaddy liked Ben’s post saying the residents should clean it up... but didn’t he say that he would leave it if it was outside his house for the council to sort? As ‘that’s what you pay your council tax for’.

Or - like most of us (clearly not everyone though...) - he just wants his club to be the best it possibly can on and off the pitch. Which includes the stadium (the face of the club) not looking like a tip.

Reply from Rovers regarding my email I sent on Saturday

Thank you for your email and pictures.  Just to inform you that we are currently looking into this.  We believe that the back alley is not our responsibility, however the parking bay area is possibly ours. 

We will do our best to ensure our areas are cleaned/tidied in the very near future.  

Kind regards

Gary Cowell

Operations Works Manager

“Yes, it looks like shit and it reflects badly on the club because of its location but it’s not our problem”. Nice one Gary.

It makes no difference whose land it is, for the pittance it would cost to remove it should just be taken care of.

Everything... and I mean everything... under this lot is about cost and not about attracting new business.

If this were a community club, without rich owners, fans would rally round and help. But with an attitude from the club like this and no inclination to work with fans other than guilt, who would we be doing it for? In any case, they’d probably clamp the people doing it once they’ve parked up.

Get it cleaned and add the tiny sum to the bill for Venkys to make up.

Even a corner shop owner with any pride would sweep the public footpath on their doorstep.

That's the key Stuart.

I can't believe certain posters are so set in their ways of defending everything the Club does that they're also defending them on this.

No - one expects the Club to clean up Ewood on the Council's behalf. They just need to tidy up any debris next to the perimeter fencing.

One word.

PRIDE.

Exactly, I live facing a big common. It can get full of wind blown rubbish. Every week or so Mrs Shoelaces and myself spend 3/4hr walking over it picking up bottles, can's, chip papers etc. Sometimes another bloke does it. The council provided us with strong rubbish sacks and a plastic hoop to hold the sacks open. When we've done we leave the sacks by a council rubbish bin and council workmen take them away. How hard is it, especially nowadays when we've got time on our hands ?

Similarly weeds grow on the pavement outside my house, technically not my property but I remove them regularly. It's about pride and standards particularly when you are in the public eye.

And as you say Tyrone it costs nowt.

You're a walking contradiction Chaddy! You complain that people are complaining about the club and then ask if they've sent emails to the club or council complaining about the mess! :blink:
