  1. We've already sold 210 copies of Issue 95 in the first week. Thanks to everyone who has purchased so far this month. Plenty more still available via the links above and from noon on Kidder Street before the Middlesbrough match. It's £1 to charity for each one sold - so that's £210 raised already for the likes of East Lancs Hospice and Nightsafe. Cheers!
  2. WE'RE BACK WITH A BRAND NEW ISSUE!! To order your copy of the fanzine please visit our ONLINE SHOP or purchase through eBay by CLICKING HERE. It's still only £1.50 and postage is 75p for first class delivery. Please note that a full £1 from each issue sold will be donated to local charities. We do this whenever we can if sales have been healthy enough to put us into profit. If you prefer grabbing a copy in person, the fanzine will be sold outside Ewood before the forthcoming home matches from an hour before kick-off (at the bottom of Kidder Street). Thanks for your interest! Issue 95 contains: We Spy On Who We Want!, Waggott Woes, The Brereton Enigma - Solved!, Tactics and Humility, Overheard in the Blues Bar, Kit Stories - 1960 FA Cup Final, Reffin' Hell, Sliding Doors #3, Voice From The Valleys, Who Were You? #9, There's Only One Simon Garner, The Evolving Nature of Fandom, Film Poster, Our Boy Dunn Good, Quizzes, Crossword, Tartan Army XI plus much more!

    Where Are They Now?

    Haha, incredibly there's 2 to 4 pages on each of them.... depsite the lack of appearances at Ewood!

    Where Are They Now?

    Coincidentally enough the next one in February is someone from that same season who played in the same position as Sebastian Perez.... who of course gets a few mentions!!

    Where Are They Now?

    Thanks....we've also had Dino Baggio, Richard Brown, Johann Vogel, Alan Fettis and Javier de Pedro featured in the past - always brings back stories which are barely remembered!!

    Where Are They Now?

    Another forgotten man who was featured recently in our excellent "Who Were You?" series. Raises the possibility that he was actually underrated and underused in 98/99. Another from that era coming in this February's Issue 95!
  7. Yep, the £10 season subscription already includes postage costs - issues 92 to 94 should be with you on Thursday! Thanks for ordering.
  8. Thanks to everyone who has purchased so far! Already sold over 200 copies in the first weekend. Plenty more still available to order via the links above😃
  9. THE DECEMBER ISSUE IS HERE!! To order your copy please visit our ONLINE SHOP or purchase through eBay by CLICKING HERE. It's still only £1.50 and postage is 75p for first class delivery. If you haven't already heard, we managed to get ourselves shortlisted for the Football Supporters' Federation "Fanzine of the Year" Award which reflects how much we've improved it over the last 18 months and, of course, the continued excellent contributions by fans. We reckon that makes it amazing value for just £1.50! Issue 94 contains: Filling Our Fortress, Unrecognised Strikers, "Heart, Scarf and Soul" - A play starring a Rovers fan, Roque's Santa Cruise, Voice From The Valleys, Pre-Match Superstitions, The Ginger Ninja Appreciation Society, Rovers' Last Battlefield, Support As Performance - Not Everything is Mental, European Hangovers, Fabulous Faz!, Who Were You? #8 Dino Baggio, BRFCS Goes To Brockhall, Quizzes, Crossword, Boozers XI and many more shenanigans. If you prefer grabbing a copy in person, the fanzine will be sold outside Ewood before the forthcoming December matches from an hour before kick-off (at the bottom of Kidder Street). Thanks for your interest and support this year! COYB!

    Time wasting

    Believe the authorities do care about improving the game for supporters. The International Football Association Board (IFAB) have recently spelled out their strategy to develop the Laws of the Game to improve football – with time-wasting being a key issue. IFAB have debated a wholesale change to timekeeping by employing a stop-start clock, in the manner of sports such as basketball and rugby union. Given that 60 minutes is seen as a good match with respect to the amount of ball-in-play time, halves would become 30 minutes apiece with the clock – clearly displayed within the stadium – stopped whenever there was a break in play. Such a radical change will inevitably never be allowed to oust the longstanding 45-minutes-each-way tradition of the game. A more likely improvement would be persisting with normal length halves, which would continue past 45 and 90 minutes until a separate clock shows that 30 minutes of actual playing time has been attained in the half. Then there would be no point to cynical time-wasting.

    Radio rovers

    Radio Rovers was launched 25 years ago today! Huge credit to Gerald, Wendy, Alan and the rest for the memories. Some great nostalgia in these videos:

    Bamber Bridge Coffin Ceremony

    Yes! There was a feature from about 11:45am to noon on Friday on BBC Radio 5 Live (Chiles on Friday show). Catch up here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0000vgh As 4000 Holes reported on the Coffin Raising in Issue 92, the show producer approached us and we managed to get them in touch with the "Bishop of Brig" who conducted the ceremony. He makes an appearance on the show. Simon Garner is also on the phone.
