To order your copy please visit our ONLINE SHOP, or to purchase through eBay CLICK HERE. Postage is only 75p for first class delivery in the UK. And if you prefer grabbing a copy in person, the fanzine will be sold outside Ewood before the forthcoming home games from an hour before kick-off (at the bottom of Kidder Street). Issue 93 includes: An extensive history of Rovers conceding late goals, Financing Football the Waggott Way, Unpopular Opinions – Half-and-half scarves are great, History of the Rovers in Five Shirts - 1990/91, The Oxford Enigma, Sky Sports Leeds, Rhodri the Dragon’s “Voice From The Valleys”, Those Were The Days!, Who Were You? #7 – Dario Marcolin, From Bad to Worse, Arte et Lahore, Which player leaving Rovers hurt the most?, A Northern Joke, The Actors vs The Sitcom Stand-ups, From The Terraces, Quizzes and Crossword, Tash Force XI plus lots more!
  2. Rovers will announce a new senior management team, of who Steve Waggott will be working alongside, next week. http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/16306771.LIVE__Blackburn_Rovers_Supporters_Consultation_Meeting/?ref=mac
  3. I have around 120 (I've never counted them) football related autobiographies that I am looking to give away. The majority are players and managers with a smattering of referees. They are all in decent condition. Please PM me if you are interested in them. The only stipulations are that they would have to be collected and it would be an all or nothing offer.
  4. Does anyone have aerial photos of the first team training center? How far is it from Ewood? Do the youngsters train nearby or in the same place? I see Liverpool are spending £50 million redeveloping theirs to have them training together. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11669/11503019/jurgen-klopp-delighted-by-big-statement-as-liverpool-begin-redevelopment-of-training-facilities They are selling Melwood for housing, so I am sure that will raise a fair whack of the overall outlay. When I see pics of the Rovers set up, it looks really good. Where are we at though in comparison to other Championship clubs? I have heard and seen it written many times that we have a "Premier league quality" training center.
  5. Does anyone know of any organised travel to Stoke on Saturday? My son and 3 of his mates want to go but will want to set off just after 12 as they're all playing in the morning.
  6. If like me you wondered what the heck happened to sports coverage on Twitter and Rovers matches in particular, the rapacious fascist supporting fools aka Jack Dorsey changed the algorithm so tweets no longer appear chronologically. Apart from this change totally screwing all the poor folk in the States about to be flattened by Hurricane Florence, it also totally destroys live sports coverage and banter. BUT, you can get: Your Twitter timeline in true chronological order—without retweets, liked tweets, or any algorithm nonsense. Remember this url: http://REALTWITTER.COM (click "latest" on mobile)

  8. Its a long way come and no decent trains to get you all here in time for kick off is not helping.
  9. Not about the game. The trip down and back by train, coach, car any delays? did anyone use Parson Street rail station Stewarding turnstiles catering match day programme ease of purchase etc Were there any posters saying thank you for travelling all the way from Blackburn. Was the local info supplied of any use. Thank you in advance.
  10. Has passed away. RIP to a Burnley great https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45246559
  11. This is a good article about times we all loved. Written with no negative agenda, it just looks back at Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton and the SAS partnership. Enjoy! https://thesefootballtimes.co/2018/08/31/alan-shearer-and-chris-sutton-the-original-sas-and-one-of-english-footballs-most-underrated/

  13. Last proper weekend of the summer holidays so The M5 will grind to a snails pace from just south of the M5 at the M42 junction Start your journey some thing like 06:00am,well it is a 13:30pm kick off match was moved to sunday as they Rugby boys play friday night or maybe stay the weekend at Weston Super Mare Coming by road. Do NOT USE M4/M32 route and don't try to negotiate the roads and streets of Bristol YOU WILL GET LOST If you are coming by road use M4/M5 southbound to junction 18(Avonmouth) then follow signs A4 Bristol airport It looks the long way round but its quicker. Parking is normally in the streets around the area as long as you are there by 11:30am please don't block drive ways or park on corners. If you are coming by train the local trains to Parson street are not convenient on Sunday. BUT AND A BIG BUT,could I request you get the train ticket issued to Parson street as it push's up the footfall at the station its the same price as bristol temple meads Till Ashton gate haly comes on line,just curious why is there no rail station by the line as it pass's by your football ground When you approach the ground from the winterstoke road direction I suggest you walk past wickes using the pavement as the concourse area behind the big new stand gets very congested with bodies UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE THE JOHN ATYEO STATUE and Wallace from Wallace and gromit serie Split train tickets are available to Bristol from the London area and group save is also availble on GWR trains, but not cross country trains If there are at least three of you get a taxi from the station to the ground Make sure the taxi driver drops you in the Ashton Road end as it a very long walk round from the other end or use the brown buses from the bottom of the incline of the station at Bristol Temple Meads Casualty and Holby City were filmed in the City don't ask me about either of the programmes cos I think their both rubbish The young ones was also filmed in the BS7 area of the City(actually its Bishopston) Finally the block of flats on the left behind the dolman stand side as you are in the away end is "the" block of flats in "fools and horses" If your into your "STREET ART" there is loads to see in the Ashton area as we have just celebrated the upfest in BS3 Bring your camera and turn up early if you want to take any photo's Pubs possibly best one are in the cumberland road basin area novia scotia pump house and the cottage. Leave your car there and walk to the ground Buy your match day programme before you enter the away end. BBC Radio station is radio Bristol which has frequencies and 94:9 and DAB and 95:5. In 2015/16 957 blackburn fans visited Ashton Gate in 2016/17 556 blackburn fans visited Ashton Gate A final reminder that there has been no pay on the day for away fans I don't that will be change,so please buy your tickets in advance Can you please circulate to other Blackburn rovers forums and message boards as well as other Blackburn rovers followers If you want any further local info,don't be afraid to ask.

  14. For all those interested, Rovers under 23s are currently playing Burnley's kids at their place. So far, the game is going as you'd expect. About 20 minutes in, Rovers are 4-0 up.

  16. Turns 48 Today. Signed for Rovers as a 22 year old from Southampton. Unreal how time moves on. I feel so old I could cry.
  17. Rovers have launched an appeal over the unfair exclusion from the FA Women's Premier League Tier 2. https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/june/rovers-lodge-ladies-licence-appeal/
  18. to assist business growth Personal Accounting Business Accounting Fee Protection Meet the Team Football agent scores £1.2m own goal Source: HM Revenue & Customs | | 31/07/2018 A former football agent, Jerome Anderson, who looked after over 200 players during his career including Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp, has lost his £1.2m tax avoidance case with HMRC. The football agent's tax appeal was recently heard at the Upper Tribunal who upheld the decision of the First Tier Tribunal and disallowed the relief for losses incurred by a football academy run by the football agent. Anderson and eight others attempted to use this scheme to avoid large amounts of tax. The losses that were under consideration by the Tribunal involved investments in the recruitment and training of young footballers at the Bafana Soccer Academy in South Africa. Anderson attempted to use this investment to claim a £3m artificial trading loss and thereby make a significant dent in his tax liability. The tribunal found that Anderson’s activities were more like those of an investor which meant he could not claim a trading loss and was therefore liable to pay the tax HMRC said was due. Penny Ciniewicz, HMRC’s director general for customer compliance, said: 'The court has made it clear that these schemes don’t work. Our public services rely on everyone paying their taxes and it’s unfair for people not to pay their share. Anyone who’s caught up in tax avoidance and who wants to put it behind them should come forward now and settle what they owe.'
  19. Sad news that Dave Hargreaves who played two first team games for Rovers in 1977-78 has passed away aged 64 Dave of course arrived at Ewood from Accrington Stanley as a prolific goal scorer in non league and returned there later in the year to become the club’s record goalscorer (still standing) after injury blighted his spell under Jim Smith He made two starts, both unusually for the times televised : a 2-5 defeat at Blackpool and a 2-0 H win against Luton on ice. He scored in neither He played for Oswaldtwistle Immanuel FC and Accrington Anateurs later in his career and was also a familiar sight on local cricket grounds. A footnote in Rovers history but an absolute legend in local sport and a good lad. His passing is no surprise to many of us who learned he was gravely ill some time ago but as ever he kept going well past the 90thminute.
  20. Blackburn Rovers started their new season back in the EFL Championship with a draw against a revamped Ipswich Town. Despite trailing in the first 5 minutes Rovers took the lead thanks to goals from Danny Graham and the other from Bradley Dack. It was not until the last minute of normal time when Ipswich clawed themselves back into the match with an equalizer. Bit of a bitter pill to swallow but I would have taken a point if offered at the start of the day. In this video we go over the match in a bit more detail with analysis, fan input and words from the gaffa. Starting Lineups: Ipswich Town: Ipswich Town: Bialkowski, Spence (Woolfenden, 38) , Donacien, Chambers (c), Knudsen, Chalobah, Skuse, Downes (Edun, 60), Edwards, Sears (Morris, 77), Harrison. Blackburn Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Williams, Smallwood, Evans, Bennett, Dack (Conway, 82), Samuel (Palmer, 62), Graham (Nuttall, 68).
