  1. I remember Kevin with a lot of fondness. He was rovers version of David Fairclough. Don’t really know what happened to him after leaving Ewood, but he certainly made an impression on me when he was here. RIP Kevin. Loved watching you.
  2. Rovers offering £10,000 as a cash prize for one lucky winner if the ST target of 10,000 is met! https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2019/august/10k-for-10k--the-rovers-season-ticket-prize-draw/

    John Lowey RIP

    Sad to hear of John Lowey passing away this week aged 61. Never will I forget the rocket he scored v Forest at home and Sheffield Wed away when I was on the home end going crazy. RIP John
  5. Like it says on the tin. Please post the link in here and then also in the transfer discussion thread or vice versa. (Can this be pinned please @K-Hod or @J*B - cheers)
  6. Having tried to add appropriate news from that event into each thread I've decided to post all the info I gathered from the day into its own section. £1.3m refurbishments of all the hospitality lounges to take place over coming months Over £2m spent on Category One status for the Academy (further £1m was a grant from government) Significant amount (in the millions) spent on infrastructure at STC (analysis booths/scouting software) Premier Suite being done first after first international break, ready for third home game of the season European scouting network to continue to grow The new Sodexo food in the concourse is a little more expensive than the old stuff, but significantly more option Loaded fries one of the many new options available New LED/TV screens in food concourses and brand new EPOS till system Match/event themed prices and promotions on food due to new system will take place We've got a brand new pie manufacturer, smaller niche business in the local area All the concourses will be completed by Friday in time for Charlton game Elliott Bennett says Tosin Adarabioyo hasn't been introduced to the squad - they don't know what's happening with that one either Charlie Mulgrew says team are quietly hoping for a top 6 finish, and spoke specifically about his mentoring of Dan Butterworth and JRC Little mention of specifics but ideas still snowballing about The Riverside and plans for the future of the stand Plan is to have several 'One Rovers Day' type events like Stoke (H) last season and have lots of kids coming in for free again And finally, for anybody who does attend hospitality/boxes at Ewood, the new Sausage Rolls are ridiculously nice!
  7. Shaker

    Bury FC.

    Hi all-lifelong Shaker (55) here. Pretty desperate times at Gigg Lane with our previous owner vastly over-spending and our new one proving 'difficult' to say the least. Suffice to say we have a winding up order deferred to the 19th June and have started a crowd funding appeal. https://www.gofundme.com/save-bury-football-club Clearly we all want to win on the day when we play each other, but that aside if you can assist one of your neighbour's and like yourselves one of Lancashire's most historic clubs it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

  9. Just been reading through the FF minutes from early July. Couldn't find much discussion on here about them so I thought I'd provide a link/thread. https://www.rovers.co.uk/siteassets/pdfs/fans-forum-minutes/8th-july-2019.pdf This was an idea mentioned which I think could be a great idea.
  10. Firstly, thank you for reading this thread, as I am aware there are quite a few similar topics that go on. I am hopeful that the football link involved will capture some attentions!!We are three serving police officers from Sheffield, South Yorkshire and in July, we will be taking on the challenge of visiting all 92 football league grounds in 92 hours. Within our trio, we have an Owl, a Blade and Spurs fan (That generally gets asked quite quickly!)One car, 3 cops, 92 grounds, 92 hours, 2,400 miles. We are taking on this challenge to raise money for The Children’s Hospital Charity, which supports Sheffield Children’s Hospital and serves the whole of the North of England and much wider in some circumstances. www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ninetytwo-in-92 Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of just three standalone specialist children’s hospitals in the UK. More than 269,000 patient journeys are made to the hospital each year and its work changes children’s lives from across the UK and around the world every day. My own daughter was born with a heart defect which I have previously discussed on here when raising money for the hospital who looked after her welfare amazingly for a couple of years and we now have friends and colleagues who have their own children currently being treated in the Leukemia ward of the hospital. We are so lucky to have this amazing facility here to give people the best care possible.We will be driving over 2,400 miles in a car and riding bikes to reach the London clubs. We will be eating and sleeping (not much) in the vehicle to complete the challenge to make sure we stick to our 92-hour limit.We will start this challenge at Barnsley Football Club at 8pm on Friday 12th July before arriving back at Bramall Lane at 4pm on Tuesday 16th July.We are trying to raise £25,000 for this amazing charity and we would love it if you could support us in any way possible. In the last few weeks we have set up social media profiles on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook as can be seen below. Any donation that anyone can give would be massively appreciated. If you are not in a position to donate then any help you can give through retweets, shares and likes, etc to help us gain as much exposure as possible would also be appreciatedEvery single penny that is made in charitable donations will go directly to transforming the Cancer and Ward at the Hospital.Thank you once again for reading our post and if this is something you are willing to support we would really appreciate it.Give us a wave as we get to and go through Blackburn!!If there is any chance this could be pinned that would also be really appreciated.Scott Sarson, James Thorpe and Jamie Hendersonjustgiving.com/ninetytwo-in-92twitter.com/ninetytwo_in_92www.facebook.com/92inNinetytwowww.instagram.com/ninety2in92
  11. Rovers v Oldham at Ewood Televised game already sorted though. See if you can spot it.
  12. Does Phil Jones have a sell on clause that could benefit us financially? Even if so, would that be rendered neutral because he's leaving United in a part-exchange deal? If anyone knows let me know, started a new topic for it as didn't know where else to place.

    Northcote

    Heard a couple of weeks ago that Rovers were moving on from Northcote providing the hospitality and now it seems to have been confirmed. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/17460472.northcote-deal-at-blackburn-rovers-comes-to-an-end/?ref=twtrec Vinjay will be happy. To be honest I've been in the Red Rose suite quite a few times on matchday and the bar offering is dreadful. Hopefully an improvement will come.

    https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2019/may/aniket-will-benefit-from-football-building-blocks/ Let’s face it, we are all expecting at some point. It remains to be seen if this becomes anything more than a stunt, or if “Madame” has said if you want to go into the foreign market, start with India. These comments suggest where the Rao’s heads are at: Mowbray also praised the club’s Owners, who facilitated the training spell, for trying to help develop young Indian talent and progress the game in South Asia. “It’s such a huge continent with such a huge population, I think the potential is huge,” added the Rovers boss. “The Owners obviously have a vested interest in football. It’s not a process that’s going to happen overnight, but at some stage you have to try and begin the process. “I think that’s what’s happening. The bigger Premier League football becomes worldwide, the bigger the Asian nations will impact world football, and I’m sure there will be generations to come of hopefully Indian and Asian players playing in the Premier League.”
  18. An Exclusive reported on-line on the " Independent's " website .... " The Football Association and the Football League have backed a proposal from The National Association of Football Statisticians to downgrade the first 22 years of the FA Cup, to the equivilant of the FA Amateur Cup which commenced in 1893-94, and ran until the 1973-74 season. The years affected run from 1872 to 1893, and the winners of the Cup for those years will not be permitted to claim these successes as FA Cup wins on their official Club websites or publications. Explaining the reasoning, N.A.F.S. Secretary, Dr John Hickson said " Any objective analysis of the early years of the " FA Cup " reveals a large number of " byes ", " walkovers " and hugely one-sided results, and in the modern age, we no longer feel it appropriate that these early incarnations of the greatest Club knockout Cup should be classed as true F.A. Cup Competitions ". He added, " The dominance of Public School Old Boys and Military Clubs in the early years, as well as mis-matches with the early Professional Clubs coming up against "true amateur " sides, does not sit well in the modern professional age ". An FA spokesman endorsed the decision, which is expected to be passed unopposed at next month's FA Council meeting, where the renaming of the Football Association, as the " English Football Association " is also expected to gain approval . Some of the affected downgrading concern Clubs no longer in existance, such as Wanderers, Royal Engineers and Clapton Rovers. David Singleton, West Bromwich Albion's head of media relations said, " We accept this decision with some reluctance, but understand the reasoning behind it " . West Bromwich Albion will no longer be able to claim their 1888 & 1892 victories on their official " Roll of Honour" . Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Preston North End are also affected losing one victory each, but the Club most affected is Championship side Blackburn Rovers who will have 5 of their FA Cup wins effectively deleted from the history books. No one at Blackburn Rovers was available for comment, although a source inside the Club said " they were studying the implications of the decision closely, and a statement is expected to be issued in due course ".

  22. Fascinating story and one I wasn't aware of. He was the architect behind just about every major football ground in the country from the 1890s - 1930s, including Ewood. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-48028660 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archibald_Leitch

  24. Rovers Trust has worked tirelessly over the last 8 years to persuade the FA, Premier League and English Football League in order to improve the safeguarding of the organisation and control of our Football Clubs. The Trust has decided to embrace a new medium and take the fight to the theatre to show the anxiety and devastation of being a true fan in these circumstances. Blackburn Rovers was an original founding member of the football league; therefore, the Rovers' Trust should also lead from the front and stage this production, not just for Rovers' fans, but also for the fans of clubs like Blackpool, Coventry, Wimbledon and Charlton etc. We feel it is time that the football authorities were made to sit up and take notice. We urge you to support this play and plight, providing a platform for the voice's of true fans to be heard in an exciting and revolutionary way. A sum of £9,000 is required to make this play happen; a national appeal which is supported by Henry Winter, one of the few prominent journalists to lend his support to football fans who feel a lost connection with their club. https://mobile.twitter.com/henrywinter/status/1092798519243689986 This is not a mere protest play. It’s a story about one fan’s feeling of depression and helplessness when there is a loss of localism, and the connection with his club begins to slip away. I’m sure we all know how that has felt at some point in the last 8 years, and we hope fans of other clubs who have had similar experiences of ownership to ours will support this message. If you wish to support this play, you can view the appeal brochure and donation pages from this link: https://www.roverstrust.com/2019/01/17/heart-scarf-soul-a-play-starring-a-blackburn-rovers-fan/ Please feel free to share far and wide!
