    Just a little point to show maybe how much Rovers are a bit out of touch on fans ,travel to games, buses etc.etc. Rovers away travel pick up at Ewood and also pick up in Accrington (which is brilliant) but the away coach picks up at the Boars Head pub which for those that didn't know WAS the pub that the Accy branch of supporters used to meet and leave from. The Boars Head has now been SHUT for six years and are now flats ! Fans getting picked up there have to stand outside in all weathers waiting. The club even states … Departing from Accrington (The Boars Head) at 11.30 and Ewood Park (Darwen End) at 12pm. The Boars Head doesn't exist and anyone new to the area wouldn't have a clue where the bloody hell it is was. The Accy branch (30-40 people ) now meet at the Sydney St WMC ..im damn sure the club is oblivious to this .Why doesn't the Away travel pick up from here ? 500yards away from where they pick up now ..a place where people can have a drink prior to leaving and inside from the elements and a pub with Rovers connections. Cmon Rovers making an effort to connect with community ..

    Yep that's a good idea although whether the club would get involved in running coaches is debatable. Rovers used to subsidise I think many of the buses ran from in and out of the Blackburn area but they knocked that on the head hence the few that do run are independent. As for your views on the "get into schools and get um hooked young " I agree a lot may only go the one game but I know quite a few 30 yr olds who got hooked and are now taking their own kids . Its not an overnight thing ..its long term and if some do continue to go then its a success.

    On a side note ..Rovers seem to be one of the only clubs that DONT charge admin fees when purchasing Home match day tickets. Boro £2.50 Bolton £1.00 WBA £1.00 Norwich £1.50 all for booking over the phone or online and that does not include delivery . Hats off to Rovers on that score ..? Maybe not fleecing the fans as much as people think.

    sorry Blueboy ..my .."my feeling is its not an issue " was meant to mean that ive never heard anyone outside this messageboard actually complain about the surcharge so hence not a major issue. As Stuart states people seem happy to continue paying it. Im not for one moment saying the surcharge is right ..but that its seems to be very low down on the long list of gripes that fans have about rovers at the minute.

    And there you go ..exactly what me and others said months ago . Start with the kids and get them hooked.

    Believe me ...I don't want to be back on this ..but I really don't see the problem ..its there ..in this day and age of being able to buy a ticket via a pc ..phone ..there are ways to avoid the surcharge. My point I was stating is.. is this surcharge such a big deal amongst rovers supporters or just a handful of posters on a messageboard ? My feeling is its not really an issue.

    Is there any real proof that the post midday surcharge actually affects people willing to buy tickets ? The only place where ive actually heard a hoo ha about this surcharge is on here ? Im a season ticket holder who mixes in a decent cross section of Rovers fans in work and socially including the Accy supporters coach and not once has the conversation drifted to this surcharge ? People are aware of it but don't seem as irate or remotely bothered by it as some posters on here . For whatever reason the surcharge is there (and we are not alone in the EPL to implement a surcharge on match days ..Bradford a fiver ?) and the club documents this surcharge for all to see . Last night it looked like people were reasonably ok with buying tickets for 20 quid after missing out on the tenner for whatever reason.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Its a two way thing though Rev. Yes we may get the chance of taking a player on loan we may never be able to buy outright but at the same time the parent club is passing the player onto another club to see if he makes the grade. If the player was as good as they thought he d be in their first eleven or clubs would be putting in bids to make a permanent transfer ..but not happening on both counts for Palmer. We surely have the right to play our best eleven on a weekly basis regardless of whether they re signed to the club or simply on loan ? BRFC comes first.

    Bradley Dack

    40 a day according to to the late Ray Wilkins

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    A loan is a loan Rev. Its a two way thing we are paying part of the players wage and want as much out of that player just as Chelsea would want experience for that player, But if he's not upto scratch ..poor in training or kept out of the team by better performing players then that's how it should be regardless of parent club. Again a two way thing and we re well within our rights not to play the player for whatever reason TM and Co. see. Palmer now onto his fourth loan club ..and still no takers.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    yep ..we should have dropped Dack . And when he was actually on the pitch he stood out like a beacon ? I think not. Success at Derby ? ..They really fought tooth and nail to to keep him/sign him.
