Kevin Gallacher column: Case of ‘what if’ for Rovers

Lancashire Telegraph: Rudy Gestede Rudy Gestede

DO we go into the final game of the season with a better team than what we started the season with? I’d say definitely yes.

But should we be going into the final game of the season already in the play-offs? I’d say yes and no.

Last season I expected us to finish in the play-offs as a minimum. Of course that didn’t happen and we nearly got relegated.

Gary Bowyer has had to deal with the fallout from that and there has been a lot of change around the football club.

Gary has brought stability to the team and more promise to the team and the fans are happy with that.

But it would have been nice to have kicked on and got into that top six.

Yes we are unbeaten in 11 games but we have dropped too many points against teams we should have beaten.

And it’s those games that we are probably going to look back on and rue the fact that we have missed out on the possibility of promotion.

The most recent one was the stalemate at home to Yeovil but there were other matches before that when we’ve taken the lead only to fall apart.

So we really should be going into Saturday’s game against Wigan level on points or better off than the three teams above us.

We’re not and that’s why, for me, this season could well be a case of ‘what if’?

That’s not to say we shouldn’t be positive.

You only have to look at the team Gary has assembled to see that.

I think the introduction of Rudy Gestede has been good and, while, for me, there is still a question mark over whether he and Jordan Rhodes can do it together, he is really coming into his own.

Craig Conway has been a breath of fresh air and getting Tom Cairney has been phenomenal, he has been my stand-out player.

We had to sell our captain Scott Dann but to be fair you can’t take anything away from Matt Kilgallon, I think he’s filled in that role very well.

I think the signing of Michael Keane has also helped, so there have been plenty of plusses.

But will there have been enough of them to get us into the play-offs? It looks unlikely.

But whatever happens we should still want to end on a high by beating Wigan.

If we do that, and do that comfortably, then the lads can go back into the dressing room and see if results elsewhere have gone their way.

There is no pressure on them and there hasn’t been since that Yeovil game.

They have just got to go out there and win.

You clowns keep going on about that Yeovil game as being the one that cost you. It wasn't. You picked up a point there...

The game that ensured you missed out on the play-off's was the home defeat to Burnley. If only eh...

But you'll just have to live with that while we move onto bigger and better things as a Premier League club.

And you still insist on forgetting the last 30 odd years of total domination by the mighty Blackburn Rovers, which would have surely continued until the Loons from Pune rocked up. Enjoy your season in the limelight, because that's all it will be.

What an obsessed dingle idiot you really are.

Just need to beat Wigan by 6 goals, Brighton to lose to Forest and Reading to lose to the inbreds and play offs here we come.

If we beat Wigan by 7, Brighton can draw and we'll be in the playoffs if Reading lose.

It aint over until the thick dingle starts smashing up his own town.

What a wonderful feeling it is to be on the verge of completing a memorable season in the history of Burnley FC. The feeling is compounded by watching our most bitter of rivals clutching at every imaginable straw before drowning in a sea of debt and FFP.
And finally what a wonderful ironic twist it is that Burnley can ensure that Rovers miss the play offs and the valuable income they would get plus the opportunity to join us in The Premier League. Of course we will be doing our utmost to thrash Reading by at least 6 or 7 goals but I suspect that even this magnificent Burnley team will fall just a little short. If only you could have beaten us eh !

hello, I have supported the clarets since 1954 and have been fortunate enough to see the club through the wonderful era of the 60s & 70's with players such as adamson, angus,mcilroy,connel
ly, casper dobson, james among many others. i have also had various spells working for the club in the local community. as you are aware we have always shared a strong rivalry blackburn rovers which has seen both clubs have great periods of success. even now in my 70s i enjoy banter with my son in law who has supported rovers for many years. i have registered an account to express my opinion on your comments that seem to appear regular on these articles. you certainly do not not speak for the majority of clarets,especially of my generation with the constant winding up attempts towards blackburn rovers supporters who are correct in thinking you are actually envious of the success they've enjoyed. as i have stated i was fortunate enough to witness a wonderful period for my club, european nights,big crowds,great memories but will never forget the late 70's and 80's when we were a shadow of ourselves with crowds of just 3 or 4 thousand and on the verge of the unthinkable. if there's one thing i've learnt in life it is to be careful what you wish for, especially in football. to hope that rovers end up in the same position as we were in division 4 or to be crippled financially like portsmouth in my opinion is down right disgusting and shows a lack of class from someone who supports the clarets. personally i would love to see rovers in the top league again with us of course, pne, bolton wanderes & blackpool.
i hope you don't take offence to my feelings but just felt an older & wiser claret may make you think twice and not to forget we too went through some very difficult times.

I wouldn't know what was on the burnley page, I've never thought of looking. You have to remember that they have spent so long in our shadow that they will gloat for the next year until they get relegated and we get promoted. Hey, at least they'll still have the 'you haven't beat us in xxx years!'

Very selective short term memories? Seriously? As for Garners plane taking bitterness to a new level I'd suggest a bunch of orangutans scaling the roof at Ewood and throwing missiles at Rovers players kind of surpasses a banner on a plane doesn't it? Or what about smashing your own town centre up? That was pure unadulterated hate and bitterness taken to an all time low. We take the pi55 by calling you dingles, you lot call us b4stards out of pure hatred, a hatred that's borne out of failure jealousy and envy.

A good manager, one decent season, one derby win in a generation and your selective short term memory is truly staggering.

"A good manager, one decent season, one derby win..."

And therein lies your problem. You see you never EVER thought that this would happen. You never thought you'd be relegated again, you never thought we'd catch you up, you never thought we'd beat you, you never thought we'd out do you in any possible area whatsoever. And because of all this you developed a superiority complex leading you to believe that you were genuinely better than Burnley.

It was so very far fetched only 4 years ago that we would be competing with you that you considered us to be a lower form of life. Due to Jack Walkers investment in your club you bought your way out of division two leaving us behind you, and yet still you abused us.

We were and still are referred to as inbred, we were and still are accused of engaging in all manner of deprived acts, and as for the Dingle name, you didn't even come up with that one yourselves.. its Bolton fans who started that by calling Blackburn fans Dingles! So there's not even an ounce of originality there either.

The bitterness in many cases stems from those small minded Blackburn Rovers fans who turned out in numbers to witness the death of Burnley FC way back in 1987. I remember it well. A truly unforgivable and despicable set of creatures longing for our club to go under. That level of bitterness will never again be seen by any supporters anywhere.

Add to this the obnoxious loud-mouthed shaved ape Garner and his banner antics and you just about sum up the truly shameful history of many (but not all) Blackburn Rovers supporters with regards to the rivalry with Burnley FC.

To clear it up, we're not obsessed with you, our lives don't revolve around you, we are simply laughing at the desperate state of your "once-proud" club and taking the p!ss out of your cringe-worthy efforts to find some positivity in yet another failed season.

So I would respectfully suggest that you wind your neck in and take your medicine you inbred, sister fiddling, horse whispering, crotch-sniffing, gurning, pot noodle eating degenerate sack of wind and p!ss.

As for Garners plane taking bitterness to a new level I'd suggest a bunch of orangutans scaling the roof at Ewood and throwing missiles at Rovers players kind of surpasses a banner on a plane doesn't it? Or what about smashing your own town centre up? That was pure unadulterated hate and bitterness taken to an all time low. We take the pi55 by calling you dingles, you lot call us b4stards out of pure hatred, a hatred that's borne out of failure jealousy and envy.

A good manager, one decent season, one derby win in a generation and your selective short term memory is truly staggering.

P.Hartley - much respect & if the the troll, who's life revolves around Rovers, had an ounce of your decency it'd be twice the person.
You have dished out the abuse for many years. Now the boot is on the other foot. It was just a matter of time till you all fell off Daddy Walkers yacht ! We will gloat for as long as we are above you which might just be for a very long time. Get used to it.

P.hartley, I respect your views however some of us may not have been as fortunate to experience as many of the good old days as you have, and some of us may have spent the majority of our football following lives on the wrong end of an indeterminable amount of disgusting abuse from our neighbours down the road. As a result some of us believe it it only just and fair that given our current position of superiority we send a little bit back their way. In short some of us really don't like Blackburn Rovers in any shape or form, we never have and we never will, and we too have a right to express this. Don't take it all so seriously.[/p][/quote]Super Claret, I am far from being a young man but I totally get what you are saying. Rovers fans have gloated for years and now it is our turn. We have had to live with it and so will they. Whatever abuse they get is fully warranted. They obviously have very selective short memories. Simon Garners infamous plane banner took the bitterness to a whole new level ( sorry for the pun) and personally I will be using his words until such time as Rovers get promoted ( if ever) so STAYING DOWN FOREVER.[/p][/quote]Very selective short term memories?

Why do Burnley fans call their team the Carrots? Blackpool play in orange, so I could understand if those fans did. But you lot don't play in orange, so why The Carrots?

And therein lies your problem. You see you never EVER thought that this would happen. You never thought you'd be relegated again, you never thought we'd catch you up, you never thought we'd beat you, you never thought we'd out do you in any possible area whatsoever. And because of all this you developed a superiority complex leading you to believe that you were genuinely better than Burnley.

It was so very far fetched only 4 years ago that we would be competing with you that you considered us to be a lower form of life. Due to Jack Walkers investment in your club you bought your way out of division two leaving us behind you, and yet still you abused us.

We were and still are referred to as inbred, we were and still are accused of engaging in all manner of deprived acts, and as for the Dingle name, you didn't even come up with that one yourselves.. its Bolton fans who started that by calling Blackburn fans Dingles! So there's not even an ounce of originality there either.

The bitterness in many cases stems from those small minded Blackburn Rovers fans who turned out in numbers to witness the death of Burnley FC way back in 1987. I remember it well. A truly unforgivable and despicable set of creatures longing for our club to go under. That level of bitterness will never again be seen by any supporters anywhere.

Add to this the obnoxious loud-mouthed shaved ape Garner and his banner antics and you just about sum up the truly shameful history of many (but not all) Blackburn Rovers supporters with regards to the rivalry with Burnley FC.

To clear it up, we're not obsessed with you, our lives don't revolve around you, we are simply laughing at the desperate state of your "once-proud" club and taking the p!ss out of your cringe-worthy efforts to find some positivity in yet another failed season.

So I would respectfully suggest that you wind your neck in and take your medicine you inbred, sister fiddling, horse whispering, crotch-sniffing, gurning, pot noodle eating degenerate sack of wind and p!ss.

As Simon Garner once said..... STAYING DOWN FOREVER.
Another multi-paragraph war & peace effort with the bull sh*t metre going off the scale... I could pick my way through it and make a mockery of your fantasized desperation but I'm just too busy watching some paint dry.

I did admittedly laugh out loud when you claim not to be obsessed. You post more on here than any other single person and then claim not be obsessed?
It's like somebody with gross obesity claiming to be anorexic.

Seriously, as one person to another, I've seen this sort of obsessive paranoid-schizophren

hello, I have supported the clarets since 1954 and have been fortunate enough to see the club through the wonderful era of the 60s & 70's with players such as adamson, angus,mcilroy,connel

ly, casper dobson, james among many others. i have also had various spells working for the club in the local community. as you are aware we have always shared a strong rivalry blackburn rovers which has seen both clubs have great periods of success. even now in my 70s i enjoy banter with my son in law who has supported rovers for many years. i have registered an account to express my opinion on your comments that seem to appear regular on these articles. you certainly do not not speak for the majority of clarets,especially of my generation with the constant winding up attempts towards blackburn rovers supporters who are correct in thinking you are actually envious of the success they've enjoyed. as i have stated i was fortunate enough to witness a wonderful period for my club, european nights,big crowds,great memories but will never forget the late 70's and 80's when we were a shadow of ourselves with crowds of just 3 or 4 thousand and on the verge of the unthinkable. if there's one thing i've learnt in life it is to be careful what you wish for, especially in football. to hope that rovers end up in the same position as we were in division 4 or to be crippled financially like portsmouth in my opinion is down right disgusting and shows a lack of class from someone who supports the clarets. personally i would love to see rovers in the top league again with us of course, pne, bolton wanderes & blackpool.
i hope you don't take offence to my feelings but just felt an older & wiser claret may make you think twice and not to forget we too went through some very difficult times.
Maximum respect to yourself and ossy dingle for being able to see beyond the rivalry, but as you well know, there's idiots on both sides and whoever is posting will always portray themselves as the innocent party. The rivalry wouldn't be the same without the banter but those wishing financial ruin on Rovers are truly despicable. I would go as far as to say that you would be hard pushed to find a Rovers fan who would wish that on Burnley. I, for one, enjoy the derby days too much.

I think this season it will do us good not to make the play-off places because as the squad GB is building is only in the early stages, we would absolutely humiliate ourselves amongst the big boys. If we give it another season then the squad should be ready for the step up to the big time. ROLL ON NEXT SEASON! COYB!

This article has become all out war rather than what its supposed to be which a contemplative look on the season after the rubbish we have had in the past. Sure we have failed dramatically in certain areas this season, but to be so close after just one normal season is a positive thing. Sure when things dont go our way i get annoyed and bitter but that's life and sure i can blame certain players who have consistently under performed yet still get a place in the team but thankfully there have been players who have produced the opposite. I would rather us not beat Wigan, and have us get into the play-offs than have us win and have to rely on others. We wouldnt win in the PO, and its an honest look at the season and team that is bringing me to this conclusion (not to mention we haven't won 3 in 6 years on the bounce so to win more than three, a possible 6 games in a row would be at the moment too big of an ask) Despite the loss to Burnley, its been a decent season and it was obvious it wouldnt be our season completely right from the off a reference there to the rubbish penalty decision given against Alex Marrow against Derby at the beginning of the season and then the huge injury to Rochina compiling the opening day misery. Next year we can finally move forward and hopefully use this 11 game unbeaten run to really try to mount a serious play-off push. Congratulations to Burnley, Dyche is a brilliant manager and he did incredibly well at Watford, until he was stupidly sacked and he must have to take 90% of the credit for their promotion. He has however been around this league a long time, he's seen players and knows strengths and weaknesses something that GB is still learning, is he a PL class manager....well only time will tell, however the Burnley fans gloating now need to remember, this isnt the first time they have reached the PL and look how that turned out. All in all a positive season. Lets just hope we dont financially crumble under the FP and are forced to sell the players who are providing us with the spark.

Congratulations to Burnley, Dyche is a brilliant manager and he did incredibly well at Watford, until he was stupidly sacked and he must have to take 90% of the credit for their promotion. He has however been around this league a long time, he's seen players and knows strengths and weaknesses something that GB is still learning, is he a PL class manager....well only time will tell, however the Burnley fans gloating now need to remember, this isnt the first time they have reached the PL and look how that turned out. All in all a positive season. Lets just hope we dont financially crumble under the FP and are forced to sell the players who are providing us with the spark. blazerafe

Don't even dream of taking a point from us which will cost you 25 years which you have experienced it. your comments make us yawn for all the nonsense .. WAIT time will tell.. May be instead of waiting, you can do something better

Ignoring most of the mindless, pointless exchanges on this thread I would be intrigued to know more of Gally's concern about the ability of Rhodes and Gestede to play together. Sounds to me like a veiled criticism of Jordan.

The game that ensured you missed out on the play-off's was the home defeat to Burnley. If only eh...

But you'll just have to live with that while we move onto bigger and better things as a Premier League club.

hello, I have supported the clarets since 1954 and have been fortunate enough to see the club through the wonderful era of the 60s & 70's with players such as adamson, angus,mcilroy,connel



ly, casper dobson, james among many others. i have also had various spells working for the club in the local community. as you are aware we have always shared a strong rivalry blackburn rovers which has seen both clubs have great periods of success. even now in my 70s i enjoy banter with my son in law who has supported rovers for many years. i have registered an account to express my opinion on your comments that seem to appear regular on these articles. you certainly do not not speak for the majority of clarets,especially of my generation with the constant winding up attempts towards blackburn rovers supporters who are correct in thinking you are actually envious of the success they've enjoyed. as i have stated i was fortunate enough to witness a wonderful period for my club, european nights,big crowds,great memories but will never forget the late 70's and 80's when we were a shadow of ourselves with crowds of just 3 or 4 thousand and on the verge of the unthinkable. if there's one thing i've learnt in life it is to be careful what you wish for, especially in football. to hope that rovers end up in the same position as we were in division 4 or to be crippled financially like portsmouth in my opinion is down right disgusting and shows a lack of class from someone who supports the clarets. personally i would love to see rovers in the top league again with us of course, pne, bolton wanderes & blackpool.
i hope you don't take offence to my feelings but just felt an older & wiser claret may make you think twice and not to forget we too went through some very difficult times.
Maximum respect to yourself and ossy dingle for being able to see beyond the rivalry, but as you well know, there's idiots on both sides and whoever is posting will always portray themselves as the innocent party. The rivalry wouldn't be the same without the banter but those wishing financial ruin on Rovers are truly despicable. I would go as far as to say that you would be hard pushed to find a Rovers fan who would wish that on Burnley. I, for one, enjoy the derby days too much.
Bet you didnt enjoy them this season !!!!
Atmospheres were awesome, the results less so. It was made better by the fact that you lot weren't just making up the numbers like you have been since before I was born.

Please just take a moment and read that one back to yourself. Absolute comedy gold once again from the fatherless ones.

OssyDingle is a no-dad, probably the latest incarnation of TurfMoorTom, FakeVilla, BubblePopFC, etc.. #desperatebellend.


P.hartley, I respect your views however some of us may not have been as fortunate to experience as many of the good old days as you have, and some of us may have spent the majority of our football following lives on the wrong end of an indeterminable amount of disgusting abuse from our neighbours down the road. As a result some of us believe it it only just and fair that given our current position of superiority we send a little bit back their way. In short some of us really don't like Blackburn Rovers in any shape or form, we never have and we never will, and we too have a right to express this. Don't take it all so seriously.
Super Claret,
I am far from being a young man but I totally get what you are saying. Rovers fans have gloated for years and now it is our turn. We have had to live with it and so will they. Whatever abuse they get is fully warranted. They obviously have very selective short memories.

Simon Garners infamous plane banner took the bitterness to a whole new level ( sorry for the pun) and personally I will be using his words until such time as Rovers get promoted ( if ever) so

STAYING DOWN FOREVER.
More like your too thick to come up with some words of your own ehh dingle.
Suck it up :-) x

Agree its despicable armchair fanboys wishing ruin on the club. Respect to p.hartley and co laying it out as it is.

Add to that the fact that it wasn't a bad season of football that led to our relegation it was the Slumdog Millionaires and there money grabbing agents that caused it so to revel in the possible demise of a neighbouring club is all the more childish and self evidence of years of bottled up bitterness.

The decent dingle supporters know where to draw the line to what is banter.

These armchair bitter mongrels who come on EVERY Rovers articles spouting the usual bile need to be ignored.

Lastly, its a pretty hollow victory to laud gaining promotion over a club dessemited by said greedy agents and clueless owners. The true test would have been to beat us fair and square on an equal footing would it not?
