    Season Tickets 2020-21

    I wouldn't have sacked John Williams and Tom Finn as they did. We were a steady mid table PL club with proper management. I don't want to go into the history of the last decade because it's been done many times suffice to say we are where we are now through incompetence and arrogance. I wouldn't alienate the fans like Waggott has done.

    If you get an opportunity Andy his autobiography is a good read.

    Incredible. You criticise supporters and come out with a ridiculous statement about Venkys being more committed than some fans and you might not buy a season ticket yourself. Hypocrisy. Edit: The whole flaming thing is unsustainable now because of their absolute incompetence.

    Yeah I've never understood why anybody would persist with a failure for fear of making a worse appointment. One of the most sensible decisions of their tenure was sacking Coyle. But balance that against the ridiculous decision to appoint him in the first place 😁😁😁.

    If you are talking about the decade of decay then that's a very low bar you are setting. I asked the other day for one tangible benefit Waggott has brought to Rovers and as yet nobody has come up with one. Twice in the last three seasons there have been extortionate increases in admission prices which has affected the uptake. One of Waggotts objectives was to grow the supporter base, he has done the opposite by vastly diminishing it. I have said before there are several posters on this site who could do a better job than Waggott at a fraction of the cost.

    I always thought Jock Morrison wasn't the brightest but this takes it to another level. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54199351

    What a silly, inflammatory thing to say. Proportionately to my income I would think I spend more on Rovers that Venkys do proportionately to theirs. And I would imagine that applies to lots of other Rovers fans.

    Bad news. I read another poster who has been made redundant. Hopefully neither of you will be out of work for long.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Evans? No chance, perhaps £10 bid from Mill Hill St Peters 😂😂😂 As far as I'm aware the player I heard isn't injured.

    And in that decade of decay local businesses have seen their income drop hugely as the home and away support has diminished. Also in the decade of decay Rovers have laid off lots of staff or vastly reduced numbers. It almost reads like Venkys have reduced their financial input to a trickle.

    As a group of six friends and family none of us are renewing. Whilst there are some reasons which Rovers have no control over uppermost in at least four of the group is the price increase particularly after a big increase only two seasons ago. Waggotts belligerence and lack of understanding is going to hit Rovers hard.

    He answered nearly every question with some reference to testing figures even when the question was nothing to do with testing. He has default comments and this is one of them because he doesn't have the answers. He was mumbling along at one stage incoherently and closing his eyes. I thought his body language wasn't good today, almost like the current issues are taking their toll on him. And he hadn't a clue about how much care workers earn. I thought he was a distinct second today to a novice.

    You are correct but my wider point was that you are expected to pay for something you don't want or can't watch. That aspect, as before is non negotiable.

    The loss is £20 each game for the JW Upper and not taking up the iFollow offer which is non negotiable (as it wasn't last season). That is based on an assumption of missing every home game until the end of November.

    PMQ's should be interesting today. In the blue corner we have a pompous, condescending old Etonian, ex Bullingdon boy who treats the working classes with disdain. In the red corner we have a secondary school educated, non university attending northern girl who has working class ingrained into her.

    I really feel that the iFollow offer is just a lazy regurgitation of the offer they made for the last nine games last season. Making an assumption that we will not be allowed into games until the end of November (quite feasible given the local situation) that would be £140 lost for anyone who, for whatever reason, doesn't use iFollow. The reasons for not going are varied and personal with every individual absolutely justified in their own decision. My elder brother rang me last night to say he wasn't bothering. He cited the unjustified price hike but also the issue of actually getting to the ground. We normally catch a bus, one of several run from various pubs in the locality but these will not be running. The closest we could park is Lower Darwen and with our aging, dodgy knees walking would be an inconvenience. I understand this is something that Rovers can't control but the ridiculous access and egress around Ewood on match days is more of a deterrent. I would imagine a lot of the regulars who use the bus service just won't bother.

    Let's Talk Tyrhys Dolan

    He has so much that you just can't coach but it can be coached out of him. Hopefully Mowbray and his staff focus on these rather than stifling them.
  19. Who knows what is in the budget Stuart. The issue for me is that of what we currently have nobody can do what Travis does. On form he is pretty much the heartbeat of the team.
  20. When Cunningham did his cruciate at QPR he went back on after treatment when clearly he had sustained something serious. I'm no medic but surely the physio or doctor should be insisting he comes off.
  21. If Travis is out for any length of time it's a huge blow not quite of Dack proportions but close. Such a stupid challenge he threw himself into when he didn't need to. Mowbray has to replace him with like for like otherwise it's Johnson and Evans doing the dirty stuff for us.

    It would be interesting to see the uptake of the iFollow offer of last season to see how many season ticket holders didn't use it for whatever reason. In that instance the club already had the money and as such had the ace cards. This latest offering is effectively giving an option of not paying up front for iFollow which I think may be the way a lot will go until such times as we are allowed in without too many constraints or people feel safe.

    Season tickets went up by around 18% the season before last. This season it's another 18% so my season ticket is now costing me around £109 more than two seasons ago. I'd love to know if anybody has had a pay rise in line with those increases in that time frame. I genuinely think we are expected to pay for the poor management of the club and penalised unfairly because of the current pandemic.

    Why would season tickets have gone up, particularly by such a big amount? Inflation is running at 1.5% this year. If any other business tries to impose such an increase on their customers then they simply won't buy from them. Waggott talks about Covid like it has only had an affect on football and that shows me how far he is removed from reality.

    It's almost the anniversary of a decade of Venkys at our club. The decade of decay will be complete with this announcement as I believe some ardent, long standing supporters will turn their backs on something that is ingrained into the fabric of their (and in many cases their families) lives. That's some legacy.
