    At the moment you would have to leave him out. All the forward players are currently playing aswell as he ever did.

    Around 500. If 200k salary is correct. I think it's lower than that.

    We have a great wealth of options now. Imagine being strong enough to have to have Dack on the bench. If we are winning regularly without him when he comes back, he will need to earn his place in the team. Armstrong over Dack as centre forward for me

    Rovers vs. Wycombe - 19th Sept, 3pm

    Gareth Ainsworth has been talked about being future manager of our club. He has a lot to learn if this was the case we played well, I think we would have got 5 even without the sending off.

    I don't think it is as it goes. The should have kept all prices the same as last season. My general point is that we have been spoilt on price for years. Hence why a Blackburn end season ticket is only 15 Quid more than it was in 2003. I don't think ticket prices should ever have been reduced by so much in the first place. I happy at the time but it has done us no favours. Hopefully when all this is over a reasonable price point can be found because 0 x 400 is zero which ever way you look at it. Regarding the Riverside it has been cheaper because it is the least desired seat in the house. It needs modernising.

    In terms of what they put in, for very little if any pay back.... I'd still say yes, and to be fair that includes me.

    In normal circumstances I would 100% be getting a season ticket. I can't bash the V's for a Global pandemic. My comments last night were trying to highlight that fans complaining about price is historic going back to 2003... the same fans also complain about how we are not ambitious enough.

    It's not the same experience to be fair. nothing beats going to the game. If you include away travel and for me getting to home games. attending live is far more expensive. The club may only receive £230 but very little running costs I suspect. I follow has to make money I understand that, It's our product they are selling maybe it could be done in house ?

    I'm not complaining about it though, I get a season ticket every season have done for many years.. if I don't get one it won't be down to the price. Edit: The whole flaming thing is unsustainable now because of their absolute incompetence. - We don't need to keep paying wages to new signings such as Daniel Ayala, we did not need to keep all the high earners in League 1 etc - We do and I'm glad. The alternative is to sell of the players and replace with cheaper ones and start breaking even. Relegation to league one was a perfect chance to reduce over heads but thankfully this did not happen - We paid transfers fees for the first time in years and kept the squad together. For the season we were in league one we were a big fish, if we had not gone back up we would have disappeared like Bolton. What would you do if you were in Charge ?

    Why hand pick the most expensive seats that will be this price for a 2 games during the season. £27 will be the price for an adult ticket for most games. Should Venkys personally subsidise our ticket prices ? There already fund our very existence- our player wages are higher than our income already. I have not committed to a season ticket yet but it's not due to costs. Reasons include Having to travel to Blackburn for matches - my preference is train but I won't be on a train any time soon due to Covid-19 pandemic. Travel again - Blackburn rates of infection our currently high. No Guarantee of a seat even if Fans our admitted to the stadium. I already can't attend every game, I'll generally get to 12-15 a season if lucky. However I'm wavering. I have already paid £30 this season for I follow and will again pay tomorrow- this will add up quickly at this rate. By commitment I do not intend to be insulting to anyone, I'm simply stating that many will complain about ticket prices, Shirt availability etc but ultimately to be competitive we need to have supporters in the ground paying an amount that supports the club, people subscribing to Ifollow rather than watching free streams on the internet. If one day their is no club it will be because it has become unsustainable to continue and will be a sad day if it comes.

    To be fair what ever the price, the club can't really win. What I mean by that is; Handing over any amount without any idea of when you may be able to attend a game is a difficult decision to make. I have made this point before and I'll make it again. The Worst decision the club ever made regarding season tickets was to reduce them to £199 pounds during the "Taking back Ewood" campaign. We were in the premier league at the time (prior to Venkys) with very poor attendances - Now the plan worked but it was always short sighted and what temporary boost in sales it gave has to have devalued the product. "In a sense you are lowering the price, because you're giving people something for less than it's worth. You've devalued your offer by giving people an out, and this can have the effect of people not investing as much into your product as they otherwise would have." Lancashire telegraph May 2003 A standard ticket on the Blackburn End will increase by £1 per game next term to £385 for adults.However, given the fact there will be an increase in the amount of category A games, that actually works out as a saving when compared to increases in matchday prices. Chief executive John Williams insists the club are continuing to do everything in their power to make football at Ewood as affordable as possible.And he has described the overall season ticket package as 'very attractive' when compared with the rest of the top flight. John Williams March 2004 "We are planning for Premier League football. We had a meeting about season tickets and we do need to make sure we are in the right division. "As far as I'm concerned we are planning a strategy which means we are in the Premier League next year. I'm very positive and concentrating on that strategy but we're not in a position to announce it yet."However, WiIliams admitted that Rovers' poor home form, which culminated in some supporters throwing season tickets onto the pitch in protest on Saturday, could play a part in their new price package. "We will have to gauge our disappointment at home this season," he said. "But we hope we can retain and increase our season ticket base." From the times 2010# On Saturday, September 18 at 3pm, Hyde welcome Redditch United to their Ewen Fields ground. It is a big game: the clubs are joint-bottom of the Blue Square Bet North division with a solitary point from their first seven matches. Thirty miles north, at the same time on the same day, Blackburn Rovers host Fulham in the Barclays Premier League. Last year they were the tenth and twelfth-best teams in the country. An adult seat at Hyde is £12. An adult seat at Ewood Park for the Fulham game is £10. So in 2003 £385 in Blackburn end is described as attractive compared to other premier league teams. 2004 John williams is considering protest by fans as a consideration for ticket prices. 2010 Ewood cheaper than Hyde United. 2020 - Fans complaining that the price in the blackburn end has in real terms increased by less than £1 a year over the last 18 years. Sad but true but our Indian owner seem far more committed than most of our fans. I won't look into the price of the Jack walker stand but I know that this is cheaper than what it once was.
