    The Relegation Thread

    Do you care to elaborate on the aggression you have received from the group, or the questioning? Forgive me but I have no idea who you are, or why you'd be making such an accusation. If it has happened then I'd like to be made aware of it. Thanks in advance.

    A wonderful send off yesterday for John, it was clear that he touched so many lives and was well liked by many people. Sleep well now John, you'll always be remembered.

    RIP Wozaup (was BLESMA Charity Football Match)

    I was deeply saddened to hear this news yesterday and my heart goes out to his family. I only spoke to Warren personally on Thursday evening, where he was sharing with me his new charity launch,and his new website: http://www.thewooleyfoundation.org.uk/warrens-story/ Warren was a truly brave man, an inspiration to everyone and a valuable member of the Rovers family. R.I.P Warren.

    The sad passing of "Kelbo".

    Rest In Peace Kelbo. As Glenn states in the opening post, whilst most of us never knew him personally, we all still feel like he was a friend, and that is testament to online communities such as this one, which brings a family of Rovers Supporters together. It is always sad to lose one of our own. Kelvin was a very articulate poster, extremely balanced in his views and as others have stated, never fell out with anyone. The site will certainly miss his excellent contribution. More importantly however, my thoughts and wishes go out to Kelvins family at this horrific time, in this day and age 66 is no age, and a sudden death is always difficult to come to terms with. Whilst most of us didn't know him personally, his contributions and decorum on the Messageboard allowed us to feel like we did, and it is evident through the posts on this thread that he was held in a high regard by everyone. R.I.P Mate and my thoughts are with your family and friends at this extremely difficult time.
  6. Might want to get the last one out of the Aqueduct, it closes in a few weeks and is to be sold with a covenant on it to prevent it ever reopening as a public house.
  7. Here's Bishop Tuson's speech in full: Oh Walker, Jack Walker, Walker Look down on your team from the heavens above, be proud Jack Walker, for what they have done I bless thee one and all in the name of the bitter, and of the mild, and of the Holy lager This team I said was far too slow, did not like it down below The humiliation of going down, came then the strength they have found To ascend the Premier League Blackburn Rovers have returned The other teams are nowhere to be seen, for Blackburn surely are the cream In the wake they are scattered across the land, for Rovers had the upper hand Preston tried and Preston failed to climb the mountain that Blackburn scaled Someone said we should not celebrate this tradition we started in 48. But we shall march on through the Brig and have this day as we always did. Down Station Road, you know the rout, people will cheer it, car horns will hoot You have come from near, you have come from far, to see Blackburn Rovers as they are So nothing will stop us, the young and the old, from celebrating as we have been told Things of kind, tender nursing care will benefit from your people out there It all goes to charity from ten pence to a pound, there is nothing comes out and there is not a sound From the drivers, the Bishop, the nuns and the band we all do it for free and I think its right grand And so we march down this little village down yonder, up there, and back to the Withy’s There is football tomorrow, and a grand tug of war, it’s on Brownridge field in case you aint heard. There will be people from far and wide, who come to watch the seven-a-side It will be a grand do just like today and for years to come you people will say, when Blackburn went up to the Premier League, I was in Brig on July the 14. And what a grand do and what a good show, the coffin was blessed by the Bishop you know And forbid that it never go down below And so you good people with heads held high walk through the Brig at Blackburn Rovers side I bless you all in the name of the bitter and of the mild and of the Holy lager, go in peace, enjoy your day Amen.

    This really puts our problems into perspective! He must have had serious personal problems. Another true pro has left the earth too soon. Thoughts are with his family and friends, the world of football unites in your grief. R.I.P GARY

    Ronnie Clayton

    my thoughts at this sad time go out to Ronnie's wife Val and his family. Absolutely devastated upon hearing this news. I met Ronnie on many occasions through ground tours when younger, various events down at the ground and he was often seen pottering around the ground. Always took the time out of his schedule to talk to the fans. Unfortunately i am too young to ever remember Ronnie in the famous blue and white halves, however I have always been told of his ability by my father. Today is a sad sad day for everyone associated with Blackburn Rovers Football Club. I hope the club give him a fitting tribute tomorrow prior to the match and the players show the characters Ronnie showed himself and give him the perfect tribute by claiming 3 points off the champions. True blue - never to be forgotton, R.I.P Ronnie
