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

Fair play but it really shouldn’t need highlighting AGAIN. Particularly not for a second time in as many months after they acknowledged there was a problem and it was unacceptable. It’s a simple as there’s nobody at the club that has any standards. That will not change without draining the swamp.  

I emailed Enquiries@rovers.co.uk about it but who it goes to is anyone’s guess. 

I've had them on for months asking me to spend money corporate...

Just sent the guy a right volley about the state of the grounds and how are businesses expected to part with their cash when we can't upkeep the area.  Hope to get a response.

If and when people are allowed back in and thinking of “entertaining” clients what impressions will that give. Thanks for your business I’ve taken you to the largest rubbish dump in Lancashire. 

Perhaps could make a feature of it on the ground tours. This plate is what we were awarded for 3 consecutive fa cups. Now follow me to the pile of beer cans and discarded vehicle parts.

Or directions for away fans. Join the M65 and exit at junction 4, join the A666 and head towards Blackburn. If you hit the pile of pushchairs you’ve gone too far.

So sorry to link to this hellhole of a site but I noticed the ugly blokes down the road have opened a ‘trophy room’ restaurant

https://www.burnleyfootballclub.com/content/trophy-room-now-taking-october-bookings

 

the idea seems simple enough, like a Hard Rock Cafe for the club, a mini museum while you eat with memorabilia from years gone by 

If them lot can do it then we could have a field day with a shiny premier league trophy as the centre piece!

I think you’ll find that the Trophy Room Restaurant at t’Turf is just a Burger van with a silver plated teapot on the counter.

It is actually a silver tea spoon.

And there are no burgers.

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

I wonder what other Clubs look like....Burnley Club Shop is open.

Burnley Shop would be open. I'm always surprised when I see a Burnley fan has an item of clothing that doesn't have a Burnley logo on it.

I'd wouldn't be surprised if they are arguing it out with the council who's responsible for tidying that bit up.

Yep. Rather than just getting on and spending a tiny bit of time and money sorting it out.

Hope they select the right colour of blue for the bridge. Apparently they will be discussing with Rovers which shade of blue is the correct one. Will anyone at Rovers know the answer to that?

I doubt it. The bridge will finish up sky blue as per Coventry and Manchester City.

I sent them this picture and this was the reply I got back.?

Dear Ollie

The Stadium photo you have posted was taken during the lockdown when all staff were furloughed.

Since then a few maintenance staff have returned to work and the stadium is now weed free.

Thank you for your concern.

Kind regards

They will but they'll have to ask the paymasters for permission first. They'll probably end up choosing their favourite shade, along with a nice donation to the council christmas party fund.

The advantage they have is that it's very easy to socially distance their trophies.

IMO, pathetic.  Reflects badly on the club and it would take one person an hour to sort it.  Just feckin do it!

Don't think he knows arse from elbow.

Think Jack would have fired Cowell on the spot for such an email.

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 ?‍♂️

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
