  1. By sharing this on Facebook, Twitter and all over the shop, you'd be dong your bit to help the 'Venky's out, save BRFC and save Blackburn' campaign.
  2. Duncan Miller is standing for election in Blackburn. He understands that the town’s football club and therefore the town’s economy are in a state of emergency, caused by a lethal mixture of neglect, gross incompetence and, allegedly, corruption. Duncan doesn’t want Blackburn Rovers to die or Blackburn to die with it. Could you support Duncan’s campaign that aims for national acknowledgement that Clubs like the Rovers are not to be the plaything of millionaires who grow tired of the love you need to constantly provide them? Generations of Rovers fans have loved Rovers for 142 years. Generations of Blackburnians have been reliant on the Football Club for employment and trade. Duncan would like to speak out for those people and let the people of India and the whole nation here understand what our current owners are doing to us. Don’t let them kill our football club and kill our town. You can support Duncan’s campaign by making a donation of up to £50 to the following PayPal account https://www.paypal.me/voteduncanmiller. Donations over £50 must be declared to the following email address drmiller.blackburn@gmail.com Thank you.

  5. You should see more of Duncan in the media over the next few weeks. He was already on Rock FM yesterday. He's a great fella doing a great thing. Vote Duncan!
  6. Still got that ruddy coffin from 2012 in my shed and I'm hoping to goodness not to get it out any time soon. It's actually a lot harder to organise than you'd first imagine, an event like that. We really tried to get it at Brig and whilst some of the committee were really helpful, the majority weren't for having us, mainly on strong police advice. Then the amount of paperwork, meetings with the police, health and safety stuff to hold it 'at home' was just barmy. But I don't want to think about that just now. And hope to goodness not to this year.
  7. Ruddy brilliant! Thanks, Glenn x Note to SteB - try not to hold your hand up whilst clad in a German flag type hat Note to the hubby - rude!
  8. I don't remember my first game - my Mum and Dad didn't make a big deal about it and we think I must have been maybe 3 or 4 ish so 77/8 ish. Mum took me on the Nuttall St side whilst Dad and the big bruv went on the Blackburn End. I think it might have been a spur of the moment, 'Do you think she's ready?' 'Yeah, OK,' moments. Either that or the grandparents were unexpectedly busy! I only remember maybe the next year or so being 5 ish and more interested in playing on the 'swingy bars' than having to concentrate on the match. By Junior school I remember graduating to the Blackburn End - to the far side away from any crushes or peeing blokes. And still having a swingy bar to play on! One of my first memories is having a tantrum probs late 70s when Mum dragged me n the bruv off home before the end of the match (regular occurrence - we sometimes walked through/got the bus at Mill Hill and Mum quite rightly wanted us little uns away from the post-match shenanigans) when I think we were drawing and Andy Crawford scored - massively audible quite a few streets away - queue shameful paddy from me for not letting me see the end - I'd learned his name and some chants by then. Poor Mum. Zoom forward and me n the hubby didn't make massive big deals of our menaces' first matches. The boy one's now a die-hard Rovers fan but the girl one we lost after the bald one and he-who-shall-not-be-named spoiled it for her. That's not much help, is it? All's I know is that you, Mrs Glenn and little Glenn will be most welcome when you decide the time's right. We'd love to see you x
  9. 'So few photos'. In some ways, a shame, in some ways, ruddy good job, too! But in the very old days, lots of us non-teccy types had 'bricks' for phones with no scope for taking photos on or had no mobile phones at all! Didn't get my first one til I left uni in 96!
  10. Missed the semi- final - think I'd only just had one of my menaces. Remember (some of) Bray fondly. Somehow we happened to be staying in the same hotel as the Rovers squad. Me n the hubby were just hanging round the hotel lobby when, to our surprise, in they walked. I have no idea what had happened on their journey but the look on Souness' face wasn't just alarming, it was quite frankly petrifying and instantly put paid to our thoughts of going up and wishing the team well. The next day me and my Dad may have 'accidentally' happened to be in that white beer tent at the back of Bray . Had an absolutely brilliant time amongst the Rovers fans who travelled over and the locals. I don't think I've ever been quite so monumentally hungover after those few days in Ireland. Thanks for the happy memories, Glenn x
  11. I've just clicked on to the Trust election page. The latest stats show that 71 people have voted. I know quite a few of the candidates personally and they are good guys who very much would like the Trust to be a little more representative of the wider fan base. The way to help them achieve that would be to cast your vote. There must be more than 70 current Trust members on this board? The election statements are quite an interesting read, so it would be great if more of us clicked on there.
  12. As Rovers fan, David, pointed out on Talksport yesterday, many of us think the Roas are not alone in being to blame for the horrible state our club is in. But by joining in this simple action, media attention could be maintained, which can only assist in bringing about further discussions regarding what has really happened to BRFC. If you don’t manage to collect a paper one around the ground tomorrow, there’s always this: http://appcrawlr.com/ios/redcard
  13. An invitation to raise a red card to the Raos on the 18th and 75th minute vs Man Utd The game v Man U on Sunday, 19th February could see a potential 1 million + viewers both at home and abroad casting their eyes on Blackburn Rovers FC. Discussion about whether or not to make any protest about the Raos on that day has been plentiful amongst us. I say ‘us’ because in spite of everything, I strongly believe there is still an ‘us’. Whether you attend games regularly and still want to get behind the lads or are a staunch boycotter, we are all intensely unhappy about what has happened to the club over the past six and a bit years; we are all desperate for things to change; we all still have passionate feelings about our once proud, historic Blackburn Rovers FC. That’s something we may always share and so, to that extent, we are still #fansnunited. I don’t want to involve myself in the who’s right and who’s wrong debate regarding protests. I respect everyone’s views and I’d like to encourage my fellow fans to set aside their differences, maybe just for this one influential occasion, whilst looking at the bigger picture. There is a way we could all briefly come together on Sunday: we could all play a part in giving a sign of our unhappiness to the huge viewing audience and beyond, by participating in some form or other in the red card 18/75 action. If you are a boycotter, your help would be greatly appreciated if you wanted to use the red cards to attract the attention of the press and then go on to recount our club’s disastrous recent history to them. If you felt you could assist by coming down to the area to help distribute red cards, your efforts would be most welcome. If you are a physically unable to attend the ground, sending a red card around twitter with the #fansunited hashtag would be fantastic. Perhaps if you have creative talents, you could design something to go on a red card for people to hold up. If you are someone who is going into the ground and has another form of protest planned for this occasion, you could participate in this action in tandem with other things you have organised. If you are someone who is going to the match to support the team and who prefers not to vocally distract the players with protests, these red cards can be raised silently and with dignity as a sign for onlookers rather than the men on the pitch. The last attempt to stage this action achieved participation from pockets of fans and was acknowledged in the press. This time, I hope you will agree that it is so important that we get our misery as fans noticed on a much wider scale. If you think that the Rao family has harmed and is still harming BRFC; if you think that we need owners who show that they care for our club; if you think that something has to change at BRFC, then please raise a red card to Venky’s on the 18th and 75th minute of the game on Sunday, 19th February. Thank you. This action has been initiated by the ‘Ewood Working Men’s Club meetings’ group of fans who are not directly affiliated to any official organisation. However, we would be delighted with and grateful for these groups’ support with the red card 18/75 plan.
  14. Venkys, the fried fast food magnate, venturing into fitness food supplements. Does no-one else see the irony? Has Belaji tested it for them?
  15. I'll certainly be doing this, LV. Hope everyone else does, too.
