Was introduced to Rovers by a fellow brfcs'er (Randy Synge iirc) back in 1993 I believe it was. Started following the rovers then, amongst a very popular Man Utd and Liverpool fanbase in Ireland. It wasnt until 1999 that I had my first trip to Ewood Park (and we were in the championship) and we got beaten 2-1 versus QPR. My dad and I were sat in the JW upper as I wanted a good view of the match and ground, but I dont think we were well received as we were both very boisterous compared to mild gents and ladies. Had a wonderful time, got our very own private tour around the ground on the Friday, got players lounge passes (got to meet loads of players including duff and his family), and passes to the Blues bar.
Been over and back two or three times since, my last match wasnt a happy one either with Ince in charge and rovers losing to Man Utd. I do hope to be back again some day as long as Kean is gone.
I have had been on the official boards before I was a member on here, and have met up with loads from there and from here, and still friends and stay in contact with some via text, twitter, facebook you name it.
