Until Hartlepool just got back up, the last few years has seen just THREE league clubs in the whole of the north east of England - in contrast there’s about 15 league clubs in a 40 mile radius of Blackburn 

So of course Sunderland have a sizeable catchment area to draw from, not sure how that equates to being more ‘passionate’ than anyone else. Indeed it makes old/real Lancashire by far the biggest heartland of the game.

It was a stupid comparison and besides iv'e been up there with 5/600 away fans outsinging the home lot more than once.  I'm sure plenty others have it's easy to chuck stuff like that about when one club is on its uppers and the other isn't.

In fact last time i went there in the Prem the crowd was terribly silent apart from a few hundred next to the away end having banter. Place was a third empty, two thirds before the end because we beat them.

The reason for that i'd suggest is because they were pig sick and the passion had been bored out of them.

There will be no booing and no pelters.

Just polite clapping.

There will be booing. If we win there will also be shouting,singing,  jumping about and generally me enjoying myself.

Does anybody know if we will be aloud to travel to millwall the week after ? I cant see why not but there doesn't appear to be any ticket information regarding this and its only 12 days off ?

Portsmouth have been given 2k there the midweek before we go so can't see why we would be any different.

The information from Rovers was non existent so I rang Millwall yesterday and was told that '100% you will get an allocation' and the lady they were trying to sort the numbers with Rovers.

I've no idea what Rovers are playing at with the constant extending of the renewal deadline, as if thousands of fans are going to have some sort of epiphany and renew 4 days before the season starts, after having all summer to claim their seat. 

Apart from the far end of N05, there aren't two available seats next to each other in the Blackburn End above about row 5. There's no chance that the BBE is >85% full of season ticket holders so I'm not sure who they're trying to kid by pretending it is. All that's happening is they're pissing off anyone who either wants to move seats or wants to bring a partner/children along, or both in my case.

To be fair they are still held from the summer before last so it will be correct.

Will be a much different picture when they put them back on sale though I'm guessing, will be plenty available in the bburn end.

Rovers are totally unorganised behind the scenes!

I think that's a bit unfair on the staff who are there who work hard and are helpful. Yesterday there was one girl in the ticket office dealing with the public a few days before the season starts. The problem is that a significant number of key staff are still on furlough which is undoubtedly seen as a saving by Swag. I think some of these currently on furlough will be let go once it finishes.

It’s still shockingly poor organisation to have a skeleton staff working on what, with STs, hospitality and new kits etc is probably the busiest week of the year for sales

All roads lead to Swag.

I've renewed but changed seats to the one next to my previous seat. They said they'd send a new season ticket. I'm still waiting.

Ah. A paper ticket has just arrived with apologies for the plastic card season ticket which, they assure me, will arrive before the next home game.

We renewed but only 3 out of the 4 tickets due to them now wanting for us to pay for my 5 year old daughter when previously under 8’s were free 

In fairness she didn’t go much but was hoping to get her on a few times but can’t be sure of it

Are we saying everyone gets a paper ticket for this week or just those that needed a new card?

That's poor form too IMO. It was generous holding people's seats who hadn't renewed last season in the first place. We're now 4 days away from the first home game and they're still holding back thousands of seats for people who clearly aren't renewing.

They're still on sale now, but the 'claim your seat' deadline looks to have been extended yet again. It's a shambles. A cynic would suggest they're trying to cover up the horrifically low number of STs sold this year.

We were given five paper tickets yesterday although only two had moved into the senior category and would need new cards. The young lady said everybody would have a paper ticket as the turnstile system wasn't ready for Saturday but would be for the next home league match.
