UPDATE: Ref insists he had no choice but to postpone Rovers clash

First published in Sport Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

REFEREE Robert Madley insists he had no choice but to postpone Blackburn Rovers' Championship game with Brighton and Hove Albion after torrential rain.

Rain has poured across East Lancashire throughout the night and it has continued this morning leaving officials with no option other than to call the game off with the Ewood Park pitch saturated.

The rain has also wrecked the non-league programme with all of the area's sides left kicking their heels.

"Unfortunately we've had to call the game off today," said Madley.

"I got a phone call on my way over from (football secretary) Ian Silvester saying there could be a potential issue so we've gone out and had a look. The forecast going forward is just rain for the full afternoon. There's standing water on the pitch already and there's really nowhere for it to go.

"The last thing we want to do is to call games off but for the safety of the players it is a decision we have had to make.

"We wanted a game of football, Brighton have come a long way to discover the game is off, but we due have a duty of care to the players, and the fans, in weather like this.

"It is a shame but it is the correct decision."

I find this unbelievable. The North West is full of football clubs. Wigan still on. I don't remember the last time a game was called off due to rain. What's going on down there? Poor Brighton fans. They must be livid.

For those who don't have memories before 1995 Ewood Park is next to a river. Fantastic efforts by groundsmen and pitch builders have meant that for many years the drainage has been better and we have not had a problem. Obviously the huge quantities of rain which have fallen has meant that the water has nowhere to go. It's nothing to do with Shebby, Berg, Venky's, Kean conspiracy theories or anything else, it is the location of the stadium and nature which have caused this.

Thanks True Blue.

Unbelievable how much some of these so called fans WANT it to be a conspiracy. Not forgetting that losses are made with wages etc. paid regardless, catering, hospitality and everything involved with the club going belly up for whoever had to make that call.

Safety has to come first, from a Brighton travelling fan perspective its not much comfort obviously, but there's not a lot anyone can do in these circumstances I guess.

I have it on good authority that the pitch was NOT waterlogged up to 30 minutes ago. At 12.45, the staff and players stuffed tissues down all the toilets, flushed the chain and turned the taps on to deliberately flood the pitch in revenge against Henning Berg not wearing a silly hat at the Christmas party. Shebby the Snake immediately went out with a giant sponge but all to no avail other than confirming the rumour that he is ineeed, the biggest sponger this club has had. Paul Agnew has just released a statement that it's raining but we know better than to trust anything he says. Its a conspiracy!

It only started raining at 1.30 that day.

Providing Birmingham do the business against the dingles, although this is disappointing this may be a blessing in disguise because when its re arranged we may actually have a defence and central midfield. If we are below the dingles on Christmas day it will put a real dampened on the big day. For the statistically minded, when was the last Christmas that they were above us in the league on Christmas day??

Absolutely Eddie....he has disappeared like a rat down a drain indeed. Sudden downpours in other parts of England have cost lives recently so be thankful its only a football match that is affected today in Lancashire. Berg will like the respite I think, its been a long hard week for him - but one which he has come out of looking stronger than before if you listened carefully to what he said. Looks like he is going head to head against Shebby - which is exactly what the majority of fans want. Shebby the biggest destabilizing influence at Ewood Out NOW!

I remember being in the stadium when the Wimbledon match was called off just prior to kick-off. The visitors that day entertained us all by body-sliding all over the pitch in their attempt at a pre-match warm-up.
Once the level of the River Darwen is higher thatn the drains at Ewood, the pitch is obviously in danger of being water-logged.

At least Rovers didn't get beat today, but I fear the result would have been the same... ZERO POINTS!!!

No they didn't. Steve Patrick is still in charge of the pitches, as far as I am aware. He certainly tended the pitch at the last home match unless he has a double.

Rovers clearly did not want to play a game they knew they would lose. Got it postponed so that they could rearrange after the January transfer window. What a disgrace. They should be fined heavily and game awarded to Brighton.

Gotta go now, beginning to feel dizzy staring down looking for T`Rovers, oh there they are in 17th.

Don't blame the fans. We were doing alright until the chicken munchers from Pune came along or perhaps you hadn't noticed.......BTW I wasn't one of those who wanted Sam out as I believe he was doing well with the money that he had at his disposal. It was a matter of cutting his cloth according to his means........Ferguso
n and Wenger hated coming to Ewood and usually went away with their tails between their legs whilst Sam was manager.
It wasn't the fans who got rid of Sam, it was Venkys.

On a serious note as a genuine football fan I hand on heart feel sorry for you lot, it must be a Toss position to be in! But hey ho that's life!

Now speculation starting from Shebby about Berg - Robinson injured but we have heard that before about Ryan Nelsen - so pinch of salt. Shebby also talking about new Coaches for Berg but Berg happy with those in situ

I didn't realise there were so many qualified meteorologists supporting both Rovers and Burnley. The game was quite rightly called off, as photos on the club's website show. Of course you have to feel sorry for the travelling fans but the weather got progressively worse as it neared midday and the forecast said it wasn't going to get any better.

As for comments about the games at Accrington and Wigan going ahead, perhaps those people need to take a night class in Certificate of Education Geography. There has been torrential rain all over the country but not every town is flooded, has it not occurred to those people that there's a reason for this?

With regards to the comments from the Burnley Rovers fan club, well done, 'Operation Leapfrog' is now complete! It only took more than four months of shocking football on our behalf, an unfulfilled 'promise' of a pasting at your place and a postponed game for you to achieve it, but hey, you did it. I'd dread to think what it'd be like to have your 'Director of Operations' in charge of an Army...

Operation Leapfrog is now complete. Cheers Henning. Merry Xmas.
Rovers didn't call the game off, the referee did. He had no choice because of the amount of rain on the pitch. Didn't your own safety officials have to call off one of your games a few years ago because you'd failed to grit around the stadium and your town council had failed to grit the pavements? I don't recall any Rovers fans screaming, 'foul play' that day.

I think you'll find that it was you Burnley fans commenting on every single news story related to Rovers, taking great delight in everything going wrong at the club. Some of the Rovers fans merely pointed out that you were still below us despite our all our faults. At the end of the day it took a postponed game for your drawn-out 'Operation Leapfrog' to bear any fruit.

I'm still cracking my sides laughing at Bonleh's cup final victory of getting 1 point ahead of Rovers.. Just class.. Is that Fireworks I hear in downtown Bonleh tonight?

Just classic! :-)

Oh and love the Dads present sorry **** excuse Toran.. I had my money on funeral, wedding or the weather.

BFC. Champions of Europe at long last.
Well Blueblood dunderhead , why not look back at the hundreds of posts over the past few weeks from the shoeless fatherless ones doing cartwheels because they were above Burnley by 3 points...2points....

..1point...foal difference (actually a typo but how apt !!!!!).

So now your tiny little mind has nothing to gloat about why not try and wind your neck in and accept that the tide has turn and that from now on you and the rest of your filthy little cohorts will be maggots feeding on the rotting corpse that was allegedly a once "proud" football club!

2013 will be another year of pure laughter down at the Ewood mud hut swimming pool.
Sorry thick bread, but I think we all know you've been found at for what you really are, an armchair cider swilling fake who doesnt even go to games. For all my mockery of your sad little club with its glued to the Rovers article dumbassses on here, there's usually some respect for any decent banter or sensible comments, but there's nothing but contempt for the same that come here beating there chest but don't even attend their own games - and that goes for both camps.

Buying a present for my dad.. Priceless.

What a load of rubbish on here from Burnley fans. I thought they'd won something seeing all the elation. What a sad indictment of being a BFC fan when being above Blackburn Rovers in the championship provokes such celebration. When we were both in the premier league, Burnley was above us in the first half of the season but in the 2nd half they were relegated. Whether we are above or below Burnley is irrelevant to me and to most Rovers fans. It's where our finishing position is in May that concerns me.

Actually a lot of Brighton fans went to a proper football club who could play even with the amount of rain coming down. And they were treated to a really good game spoiled by match officials. Even club website acknowledges the visit from Brighton fans as well as those who trekked up from Plymouth. Simple cure for Rovers pitch, get better drainage!

The drainage at Ewood Park is no worse than anywhere else in the league. Water was falling onto the pitch faster than it could be drained, it happens sometimes, especially when there's been a torrential downpour. So what if the games at Accrington or Wigan were on, rain doesn't come down in equal measures, in 'blankets' 10 miles wide.

As for the dig about Brighton fans going to a 'proper club', our club wanted the game to go ahead, it was the referee who called the game off. I feel for those fans who travelled such a long way, I really do. however, your snide remarks are based on things beyond Blackburn Rovers' control, and therefore unnecessary. Anybody would think that you were the first fans to have travelled such a long way only to have the game called off.

I may be wrong but somehow I don't think it goes up to 100 degrees C.

Mind you, how entertaining would it be watching a game of footie played on boiling water? It would lighten the mood down there that's for sure.

Why on earth is there even a discussion going on?

FFS it's pathetic enough Dingles celebrating being in a marginally less sh!te position in the league and having slightly less sh!te weather than us, without dreaming up all the rubbish that's appearing on here.

I assume you all actually live in the UK, so why is the weather a surprise? I guess it must be a slow news day or maybe we all just need to get a life.

Of course the sun had been shining all day in the imaginary fantasy world that is Burnley, so their game would never have been called off; not ever.

Nonsense, it's just another thing for some people to try and blame the club for. The rain got worse late morning, the pitch was waterlogged and the forecast said the rain wouldn't abate. Therefore the referee had no choice but to call the game off.

As for not releasing a statement saying there'd be a pitch inspection, it's a given when there's such bad weather. Anybody with the slightest hint of common sense would've checked the weather forecast and come to that conclusion themselves.

I am trying not to die laughing. LOL LOL.

Under-soil heating is use to prevent the pitch from freezing in cold weather, not to evaporate water from waterlogged ground.

Wigan's pitch held up nicely yesterday, good for them but Blackpool played on Friday night and their pitch looks to be wrecked.

And lets see if Stanley's pitch is playable when the next cold snap hits, Ewood will be that's for sure, and we will still have some grass to play on.

From past experience I half expected the game to get called off so wasn't all that surprised when it was.

That said Rovers don't come out of this too well, I don't expect many Brighton fans were coming anyway but those who did should be recompensed for travelling expenses and be given free tickets and hospitality for the rearranged match.

The least they should do because they must have known the game was at risk.

But lets not forget one simple fact, it is ALWAYS the referee's decision if the game goes ahead or not.

Nonsense, it's just another thing for some people to try and blame the club for. The rain got worse late morning, the pitch was waterlogged and the forecast said the rain wouldn't abate. Therefore the referee had no choice but to call the game off.

As for not releasing a statement saying there'd be a pitch inspection, it's a given when there's such bad weather. Anybody with the slightest hint of common sense would've checked the weather forecast and come to that conclusion themselves.

Except what you're moaning about isn't common practice at any football club, yet you're making out that it's another example of bad management. A pitch inspection is the referee's job, and they don't usually arrive until 2-3 hours before kick-off. Like I said, anybody with a hint of common sense would have known there was a chance that the game might be called off. It's not the clubs job to spoon-feed the fans the obvious.

Hello Razorback Khazi, the ground is built on low lying land next to the river, if the river backs up, so do the drains. As we live in one of the wettest places in the UK, second only to the lake district, we do quite well not to flood more than we do. Thats because the drains in lancashire are so huge as to take such an enormous amount of water day after day. Burnleys game was on because their drains around the ground have to accomodate massive turds that flow from the turd more area. Thats how it got its name for more turd.
Bigger turds make for bigger drains.

Our focus is on what's happening at our club, not what's happening at Burnley. I'd already pointed that out so why you needed me to repeat myself I don't know, it wasn't difficult.

The last time I checked, Accrington was in the Northwest Dunderhead.

Check the fixtures again, it usually means that teams that appear first are at home, for example ACCRINGTON STANLEY v PLYMOUTH ARGYLE.

Ask Santa for an A to Z next year you geographical F**kwit.

That would be supporting OUR team, not spending every waking minute on Bonleh articles, which again are as barren as a Dingles sister after her siblings get bored with her.
