  1. Not read the whole thread but was this decision run past the fans groups? The move certainly makes sense to anyone not impacted by the closure, unlike moving the family stand which for me was a disgrace.

    Just a word on Rafa, tremendous achievement getting the basket case that is Newcastle to a top 10 finish and how about Roy at Palace, hardly a point by October and finished 11th. Great achievements. Swansea relegated, sold the club to foreign owners, lack of investment and the results show.
  3. After a few games of bar football and enough IPA to sink a battle ship, we found ourselves in The Yorkshire House in Lancaster last night talkin about our highlights of the season just gone. The range of discussion went from Southend away being one highlight I'd still be here tomorrow explaining that one, to the players families walking round the pitch after the Oxford game, Walsall away, we couldn't agree on one to be honest. But for me one game stands out above all the season, it was a close run thing with Doncaster away, carrying the players off the pitch at the final whistle was unbelievable, scenes that will live with me forever, but the final home game against Oxford sends goose bumps down my spine everytime I think about it. Everyone seemed to have a Rovers shirt on, the number of families and general feel around the place was magical, I'm getting a lump in my throat just writing this. I've long been of the opinion that the support isn't dead, despite the best efforts of those ****s in Pune, and once again the Blackburn public showed we support our football club and we support our town, long may that continue. We've been up and down the land this season, Rovers fans have taken over most places we visited, the League 1 experience has been great, but the best moment for me, Oxford at home, just goes to show this club will never die. Onwards and upwards.

    This football club will never progress until those idiots in Pune scuttle back under the rock from whence they came. Simple as that really.

    Wearing a grey tracksuit at any time deserves some sort of punishment surely

    I do agree with most of what you've said on here today Neal, but that pr1ck in the grey tracksuit who ran from the Darwen End when everyone was more or less off the pitch deserved a slap and got one. The woman stood in the Bburn End goalmouth with the sunglasses on bigger than her head wasn't having her best moment either.

    Maybe I misunderstood when you said fans only went on the pitch at Donny because they were told not to.

    I was told after the game that fans thought the final whistle had gone on Saturday, so did nothing more than jump the gun really...

    You're now trying to move the goalposts. The Donny pitch invasion at the final whistle to celebrate promotion was one of the best moments I've had in many years following Rovers, a outpouring of joy, superb scenes that will live with me forever and I make no apologies for that. We can argue and probably agree about the 2nd one and Saturday, but not at the final whistle at Donny.

    The fans went on the pitch in 75 to celebrate promotion, they went on the pitch in 1979 to celebrate promotion, the same in 2018 at Doncaster. Do you have a pulse Hasta?

    Like I said yesterday, the regulars in the stands foaming at the mouth shouting 'keaners' caused just as much angst as the fans on the pitch from where I was sat. Also for Paul to suggest that the encroachment only came from the Darwen End is completely false and an outright lie. It may have started in the Darwen End, but fans came on from all 4 sides and soon got off again and the world kept on turning. The Man City game was 100 times worse, then John Williams blamed our own supporters for selling tickets to away fans when it was clear the infiltration had mainly occurred in seats that had been vacant all season. Drop prices to £10 every week I say

    It's a football match, fans get drunk, they sometimes over step the mark, it's not bloody Polo!
