Is it buggery ‘nonsense’, charming way to discuss matters too.

As have I, midweek games and the like. They’d often fill one and attempt to fill a second, if they couldn’t, they’d cancel. 

One Away Travel trip for us got cancelled to a Tuesday night at Watford back in 2001, we rang around and my long standing relationship with the Birdy Bus was formed. The club was a much better institution in every way back then, but these things can happen.


However, we have never not had a single official coach on sale just a week before the first away game of the season on a Saturday afternoon.

Eddy Grants coaches trumped the away travel club 10 fold 👍

Forget Ewood look at the state of that  bird shit, paint , needs a right clean up   beginning of the season aswell.  shameful

How the fuck can the suits drive past that eveyday and not feel ashamed.

For gods sake all it takes is soap and hot water,  just shows they've no pride in anything at all. All just a wage as they trudge drearily in everyday.

Sickening.

Is that grey box thing not a light meant to light up the sign and badge when it gets dark? Does look ugly though.

They have the excuse that messing with cutting trees back and altering electric things costs  money.

Soap and water however doesn't and i'm sure they've a stiff brush lying around somewhere.  Thing is it just won't register with those dweebs that half an hours scrubbing once in a while might make it look like someone cares.

Apprentices did that when I was a 16 year old. Gareth Ainsworth scrubbed our facilities down Ewood when he was a lad, if its good enough for him.

Times they are a changing. When I was an apprentice (in industry ) all you had to worry about was getting your bollocks blackened.

Or being sent for a long stand, a tin of tartan paint or a left handed screwdriver.

I'm sure there is a more up to date way without that carbuncle 

Yes, it is a floodlight & yes you can do it more discreetly & could when the STC was built. An in-ground uplight with asymmetric distribution would do the trick quite nicely.

Mind you, looking at the state of the wall, there'd be 2 inches of bird shit on it by now so there wouldn't be much light coming through!

Alternatively a new sign with integral LED backlighting - not much chance of that when a bucket & sponge seems to be above our budget! We can dream! 😆

Engineers blue in my case too! 
regards the limits, we worked in microns but for the lads at Foster Yates and Thoms it was plus or minus a cap kneb!

For anyone at the ground on Saturday what was the general condition of Ewood like ? For obvious reasons i havent been at the ground since the Preston game in Jan 2020. At that game i was surprised how tired and dirty the ground looked.  The outside of the stands, the metal structures on the roof of the stands etc all looked in desperate need of a good power wash.
