The flying scarf that signalled the end of an era for Blackburn Rovers

Lancashire Telegraph: Rovers fans at full time Rovers fans at full time

AS Danny Ings’ winner was greeted by pandemonium in the Darwen End, a lone Blackburn Rovers fan hurled his scarf away in the Jack Walker Stand.

That blue-and-white scarf said so much. Rovers knew it was over, 35 years unbeaten against their fiercest rivals, 35 years of bragging rights, gone the moment Ings’ left-foot shot hit the net.

There were still 12 minutes left, but there was no coming back this time. David Dunn, the man who had struck deep into stoppage time a year ago, had already been substituted.

Desperate attempts for a leveller produced half chances, but ultimately no goal.

Some Rovers fans had already started to stream out of the Riverside Stand before the final whistle blew.

They did not want to witness the celebrations of the Burnley players and fans at full time.

Kieran Trippier darted towards the away supporters before leaping on Ings. The rest of the team quickly joined him.

Sean Dyche marched across the pitch, gestured his appreciation to the fans, and marched off again at the briskest of pace.

He looked like a man still on a mission, destination Premier League. Rovers players could only trudge off, looking ruefully over to the celebrations of their opponents.

The mournful sounds of Passenger’s Let Her Go played over the PA system. It seemed to fit the mood of the home fans.

In a difficult few years for Rovers, they always had that record against Burnley to comfort them.

Now even that they have had to let go. A total of 4,500 Burnley fans made the trip to Ewood Park, via the official travel that has been mandatory in this derby for several years.

In an attempt to avoid any repeat of the confrontations after Dunn’s last minute equaliser at Ewood last season, the first 10 rows of the away section were left unused, along with two blocks of the Riverside Stand nearest to the Darwen End.

Burnley fans waved India flags, in reference to Rovers’ often unpopular owners Venky’s.

The first half was a little bit of history repeated – a goal from Jordan Rhodes, a plane circling overhead, even an obligatory chicken on the pitch.

The match was less than a minute old when the chicken was released from the Riverside Stand, as had been the case when these two sides met at Ewood a year earlier.

This chicken had planned its escape route, evading stewards before leaping over the barriers back into the stand.

After that moment of comedy, banter was put to one side on 13 minutes when Burnley supporters held a minute’s applause in tribute to Henry Tattersall, the 13-year-old fan who committed suicide in November.

Ten minutes later, Rovers were ahead through Rhodes – a third goal in four East Lancashire derby appearances for the striker, who ran half the length of the pitch to celebrate on the halfway line.

Many Rovers fans in the Riverside Stand were busy running half the length of the pitch in the other direction, charging towards the Burnley supporters to celebrate – albeit stopped short by stewards and police.

A blue smoke bomb was released in the Jack Walker Stand. In what is fast becoming a tradition in these parts, a plane soon started to circle overhead bearing the message ’35 years who cares? 20 points, Venky’s 4ever’.

No prizes for guessing which set of supporters had arranged it, with Burnley fans keep to remind Rovers of their supremacy in the league table. Then came a big chance for Ings.

A penny for Scott Arfield’s thoughts as Craig Conway’s backpass inadvertently played in Ings, only for Paul Robinson to save.

Arfield had not been as fortunate as Conway in virtually identical circumstances at Turf Moor in September, when his backpass had paved the way for Rhodes’ painful equaliser.

The game changed with substitutions midway through the second half, with Dunn going off for Rovers and Ross Wallace coming on for Burnley. Within minutes Wallace had provided the free kick for Jason Shackell to equalise.

“He was as brave as a chicken,” was how Dyche described his skipper’s goal.

The Burnley boss insisted later that this was not a mischievous dig at Rovers and Venky’s, but a reference to the fact that Shackell had shut his eyes before heading home.

With the momentum shift apparent, Burnley needed only five more minutes to score their winner through Ings.

Clarets fans clambered over the empty seats at the front of the Darwen End to celebrate with their top scorer.

They had waited for this moment for decades. This time the smoke bombs were claret coloured.

“We love you Rovers,” came the chant in the final seconds of the game, from those in the Blackburn End determined to stand by their team no matter what.

“We are going up,” was the cry from the Burnley fans, partying like it was 1979.

The 35-year hoodoo against Rovers always appeared their biggest obstacle. Having ended that, it is hard to back against them reaching the top flight now.

Yes Burnley took the points because they have been playing some good football all season. But if Burnley and Leicester are the best two team in the championship I fear it will a very short stay in the Premiership. Burnley have for once got the bragging rights over the Rovers but over the past many years the Rovers have been "Top dogs" Make the most of it!!

I DO know what it is all about which is why I know you are stuffed. At the start of this year Bowyer flew out to India for a meeting with Venkys.
On his return 18 of your players were ejected from the club in a matter of weeks and not a penny was spent on buying any replacements.
All they have done is chuck a couple of quid at some mercenary journeymen on loan until the end of the season. Coincidence?

Even Venkys now finally realise the gravity of their dire financial situation and have openly stated that they fully expect a transfer embargo next January. Don't believe me? Search this web site for the articles.

It WILL go ahead because all the clubs in the Championship have ALREADY signed up to it and fines can start being handed out from April this year.

As for comparing the finances of Bly & Wowvers this further evidences the fact that you have been abusing the crack pipe again.

We have lived within our means and have been preparing for FPP for some time. You lot racked up a £35 million loss last year alone and continue to bleed millions every month.

FFP is just like the result yesterday. You knew it was coming but you just didn't want to believe it.

I am as proud as any Rovers fan of the long unbeaten record against our greatest rivals but it was only nine league games over those 35 years, with two FA Cup ties thrown in a few years ago for good measure. For much of that period, especially in the 17 years which elapsed without a meeting up to 2000, the Clarets weren't even on Rovers' radar competitively. But the record had to end sometime and Sunday's result summed up in the most miserable fashion imaginable just how far Rovers have fallen since the new owners took the helm.

Remember Blackburn fans turned up in their droves (Apparently) in 1987 to watch Burnley get relegated into the Conference.

Ever since JW came on the scene they have rubbed our noses in it and thought they were somehow better than us because they had a bigger bank account, and how they laughed and sang "We'll never play you again" when we got relegated from the Premier League in 2010.

Personally I hope they go bust - **** 'em.

Credit to burnley who won a very well commited derby game. But neither club played any quality football. I think we (both sets of supporters) need to look in the mirror and realise football is a money game and neither of our clubs are in the big league when it comes to finance. Enjoy and gloat cause id rather be pushing for promotion next year than being relegated. The tide will change.... again.

To be honest 59er if you want to be some kind of Social Worker with open toed sandals and a satchel over your shoulder you crack on!

No club has the right to belong in the top flight. It has to be earned. Burnley are in with a chance of doing it through good management, teamwork & consistent results.

Me, I'd be more than happy to see the no dads flushed down the pan. No doubt a more deserving club like Acci Stanley would then benefit from a bit more support.

At least they would get more people through their doors than Wowvers currently do?

Blackburn have one if not the worst gates per head of population in the championship.Burnley have one of the highest
It's still only around 11,000 on average.

No matter how you try to dress it up for a team that is likely to finish 2nd in the Championship and get automatic promotion it's pretty pathetic isn't it?

Surely you should be getting close to your maximum?

average gate of 11,000 ??????? get your facts right first

the gate average up to the home games played last weekend are

Burnley 12,820

Venky boys 15,289.........2,400 more from a town with almost double the population to pull from, from fans who pay half the price for season tickets and match day tickets that Burnley fans have to pay out, our average season tickets are 450 what are venky boys ?????.

forget we are second in the league if its 32 pound for an adult per match day, you can't find money to watch your team even if you want to if you don't have it, fact is its expensive to watch Burnley second top or second bottom.

to pull in crowds like we do for a small lancashire team with prices that are so high I think we do well.

if we started getting gates of 20,000 because of being second you would be on here calling us plastics......we can't win

your record of 35 years was just 10 league games not 70 or 60 or even 30 league games but just 10, we are almost half way there now, we are unbeaten in our last 4 against you.
