    Attendances

    I disagree with you, you disagree with me, it doesn't have to end with you making comments like this about rather than to me. I don't make them about you, it's called respect. This is a conversation, not an argument, and I do wish you wouldn't try to turn it into one.

    If all of those things stop you coming to the games then it's laughable. Why would beer and pies stop you from watching your team? Odd.

    Attendances

    Quite clearly I'm talking about fans who are nearby. Oddly specific story to bring up there really. I'm not talking about Blackburn fans who aren't from Blackburn and the surrounding areas. I'm sure if you looked at the database and compiled all the people who've stopped coming, not many would be from so far away.

    Lewis Holtby

    Holtby hasn't been training/playing though. I'd expect if he signs today then he'll probably make the bench for Luton, play from the game after and onwards. Depends how fit he's kept himself really.

    So when financially possible, and when people have the time, as Blackburn fans it shouldn't be expected that they prioritise going to Blackburn games?

    Shocker I've annoyed you we obviously disagree on a lot, I just don't think the blame for our attendances can be put on anything other than: a) The division we're in. AND b) The Population of our town that is ever going to watch football. But we'll have to agree to disagree, and that's fine. I just don't see it.

    If food prices, beer choices, weed on the ground outside, 50p here and there on the bus and the quality of the pie stops you from going watching your team on a Saturday, then the problem is you and not the club. I don't care whether that's a divisive one, because it's true. Almost all of these points are nothing points, they don't matter. Blackburn is our team, it should be people's priority where possible financially, and when people can find the time. If you don't come to Ewood because of little things like weeds outside, the price of a pie or the fact the family stand moved from the BBE to the JW then I can't even begin to understand. All of these points are great. YES pies should be cheaper. YES the weeds need dealing with, and the price hike for tickets on the day shouldn't be there. BUT, almost everything mentioned is miniscule or avoidable. They just sound like petty excuses not to go and see YOUR team play. I can't ever see our crowd getting above an average of 12/13k again until we get promoted. And the fact that if we did get promoted, the crowd would be upto 15/16k says more about our fan base than the club.

    That price is out of Rovers control according to the Twitter man.

    Reading (A)

    Upcoming away game at Reading. 800 Tickets Sold for this one, with on the day ticket sales not incorporated. What do we think, can we improve on last years performance at Reading? Should Travis come back into the side? Or should Buckley continue?

    1. Selling season tickets earlier shouldn't lead to more sales, it literally makes no sense. 2. Matchday tickets are dirt cheap if you buy in advance 3. If you mean the on the day increase in price its not complicated to avoid 4. There's transport available, not through the club, but its not exactly hard, and I can't see that improving attendances at all 5. Again how does this increase season ticket sales? 6. Why abolish the 1875 club it's been a great success? And how does abolishing it increase attendances. 7. Food prices definitely don't affect attendances either, but could be cheaper, the Sodexo deal hasn't helped at all. Bad move really. 8. Why? That original family stand is up in the heavens, and the new one provides free fruit and face painting, has the strikers lounge pre-game and has been a major success. 9. Restarting Radio Rovers isn't financially viable for Blackburn clearly, whilst it may bring back some, it wouldn't have a significant impact on attendances. 10. The Club don't move kick off times or treat supporters like idiots, that's a silly one, Sky move games, and the league and the police. 11. Yeah, I agree, beer choice could be better, as could prices for food in general, but same as point 7, it shouldn't and wouldn't affect attendance in ANY way 12. Seriously? There's 90 minutes of football where the crowd AND the tannoy are silent, that's not the clubs fault 13. I sit in the Riverside and the sightlines are absolutely fine. 14. The category pricing is something they could do something about 100% 15. So you think that by not doing freebies for the kids like the Stoke game will INCREASE attendances? 16. Yes there are weeds and the brick is a bit dirty, but if there's a single supporter out there not attending Blackburn games because of weeds outside the stadium, they aren't a real supporter AT ALL.

    Rovers new style of play and how we play it

    Very true. Compare Johnson & Travis to: Corry Evans, Richie Smallwood, Danny Guthrie, Jason Lowe, Lee Williamson, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Chris Taylor, Elliott Bennett (when he played there for a while). Not only that, but soon it'll be Downing, Johnson, Travis, Dack and Holtby competing for our central spots. Absolutely mental the high calibre of midfielder we have now compared to the last 5/6 years.

    Venkys aren't selling, and promotion isn't something the club can flick like a switch. Just further proof that this idea the club could "do more" is pointless. Those who are staying away, will continue to, unless we're in the Premier League, and that's fine, I just wish that the club didn't always get the blame for it as if there's some kind of incentive they could be offering.

    Whilst I appreciate this, it doesn't answer the question. What more could the club do NOW? I genuinely believe that the club has reached the extent of what they can do to bring more people back. The reasons people stay away are clearly now out of the clubs control.

    I genuinely don't understand what people want the club to do. Our club does more than most in terms of matchday experience, multi-faith rooms, family stand, cheap ticket prices, blues bar, Fan Zone outside, free fruit bags for the kids... What more could they be doing?
