PALERMO have signed Blackburn Rovers playmaker Mauro Formica - with the Argentine joining on loan until the end of the season.

The Italian top flight outfit have won the race to take the 24-year-old on loan until the end of the season, with Formica keen on starting a new challenge abroad.

The deal was finalised for the player this morning after a deal in principle was agreed to free up the wage bill to help Michael Appleton’s search for fresh faces.

Spanish club Celta Vigo and teams from Turkey and Italy were also understood to be interested in signing Formica on loan, but Palermo have stolen a match on their rivals by making official contact with Rovers.

Formica, who has been out with a slight knee injury, was signed by Rovers from Old Newells Boys for around £3.5million in 2011.

The move is with a view to making it permanent in the summer.

French defender Gael Givet is also believed to want an Ewood exit, unless Rovers agree to his request for a pay rise.

Givet was one of the players who suffered a drop in wages due to relegation and has been discontent since.
 

Meanwhile Rovers boss Michael Appleton has stepped up his hunt for fresh faces after admitting he would be “very disappointed” if two or three new players were no added before the end of the month.
 

It is believed West Brom defender Craig Dawson was a loan target but the former Rochdale man is expected to opt for a temporary switch to Championship rivals Bolton Wanderers instead.
 

Rovers were yesterday linked with a swoop for Bournemouth front man Wes Thomas, after Appleton had him on loan at Blackpool earlier this season.
 

The Rovers boss failed in attempts to extend his loan spell at Bloomfield Road, but the Lancashire Telegraph understand Thomas is not on his current list of targets as he prioritises in other positions.
 

It is understood Appleton is looking to add further options in midfield, especially the wide areas, and in defence.
 

Summer signing Leon Best remains on track for a February return having missed the season so far with a cruciate knee ligament injury.

So once again the Venky's stick two fingers up at Blackburn fans and Blackburn in general by dumping Thwaites beers at the ground.
Just what are they on? Do they really wish to antagonise the fans even more. It would appear so. They go from one disaster to another with increasing regularity. They will not be satisfied until they have completely destroyed Blackburn Rovers. If they imagine for one minute that they will ever be forgiven for what they have done to our once proud club then they are sadly mistaken.
Just leave and soon!

When I read this in the paper this morning I thought, "Can't wait for the doomsayers reaction" lol.

He's a decent player but inconsistent at best, he's said he wants to leave.

We have far too many players vying for some positions and not enough for others, the current squad is unbalanced and quite a few are not up to it.

Appleton is very clear, he has openly stated that he wants to trim the squad and any player who wants to leave can do so.

He is being honest and open and he needs to move players out and get others in to balance off the squad.

Nothing wrong with that at all.

Every club does it.

As I'm sure Mr Appleton is already aware, the last thing we need is another striker - we should prioritise getting service to the really good one we already have. Hence, signing a player of Bentley's calibre is of the utmost importance. As well as a good defender or two, obviously...

At last we seem to have a manager at Ewood you knows what he wants and is wasting no time in shipping out the fringe players to achieve his goal. I fear that it may well be too late for this season but hopefully, at last, we might be moving in a positive direction.

I have never bought a beer in the ground in over 58 years of attending. That is not the point. It should be apparent to the Venky's by now that the club has a long tradition of supporting local industry, just as local industry has had a long tradition of sponsoring the club. How do they expect local industries to invest in the club if they don't support them?

For once Darener is correct, bad decision and also although it hurts to say it, well done Burnley for sticking with Thwaites.
Season ticket purchases are detrmined by the success of local business, some do come from afar, but the majority are local, so why do Rovers give the contract to somewhere else. Some local jobs may be dependant on that.

My I am honoured! JSBW actually agreeing with me for once. Will wonders never cease. Perhaps in time he will come to realise that not one Rovers fan be he an attendee or a stay away wants to see more hard come to the club. By pressing for the Venky's to leave we are only thinking of the long term future of the club. If they stay there is only one possible outcome. That is the demise of our once proud club.

Season ticket purchases are detrmined by the success of local business, some do come from afar, but the majority are local, so why do Rovers give the contract to somewhere else. Some local jobs may be dependant on that. Sends out the wrong message.[/p][/quote]My I am honoured! JSBW actually agreeing with me for once. Will wonders never cease.

A winger may make a lot of difference as long as he is quick and can deliver the ball in,Givet should be kept he has always been superior to Dann and is our best CB in my opinion.I have never rated olsson as a full back we would be a better team with a good left back in and play olsson in his brother's position.sorry Bro!

Correct but they are buikding a new brewery in Blackburn as they want to stay loyal to the area. They could move it anywhere, but in Blackburn they want to stay.
Has any-one at the club said why they are dumping Thwaites, as I haven't seen the article. Would think the PR people would be involved in such a move against a local company. But then again.....

What a deluded fool you are, Venkys wouldnt of even bothered with making the decison of what beer to sell at the ground they have far more important roles to play. They probably dont even know its been changed yet.

That decison would of been made by the Catering manager or Purchasing manager at the club who is paid to make these decisons to try and make it a more profitable business.

Bottom line is you, Lancs Pensioner and Dangerous Dave come on here daily slating Rovers no matter what they do or dont do.

What on earth has your comment got to do with this story. That is the world of business get over it.If you could get a better deal from another company don't say that you would not take it. No i thought not.
I commented on here because the LT hadn't updated their site see actual LT front page today, so there! The world of business is to make money not lose it. By alienating your customers you will go out of business. Maybe not immediately but as the Venky's continually show they are heading in that direction.
You know that for a fact Darener do you? Venkys are going out of business. More speculation and untruths. The only fact you have uncovered is another reason for you not to go to Ewood and support the team you claim to have supported for 58 years. Bottom line is you, Lancs Pensioner and Dangerous Dave come on here daily slating Rovers no matter what they do or dont do. All three of you have obviously lost your love for Rovers and do not wish to support them any more. I wish you would just leave the Rovers fans that still want to support the team to enjoy constructive debate on here rather than some of the utter tripe you 3 come out with. 58 years lets not bother making it 59!!!

Forever blue and white....I would never lose my love of the Rovers. But I cannot bear to see what is happening to them. As the sole Carer for my disabled daughter my only real pleasure in life was to go down to the Rovers and watch them play. Since the Venky's arrived and systematically destroyed the club. First by getting rid of a manager who although not the best footballing brain would have kept us in the PL for as long as he was here. Then dismantling one of the best run clubs in the country. By forcing out people who had kept a small town club at the pinnacle of the English football system on a shoestring. By employing useless advisers, managers, and back room staff. By selling off our best players and replacing them with journeymen and foreign nonentities. This has destroyed any pleasure I got from seeing the team play. So you get your wish I will not return until I see the club being run the way Jack Walker would have wanted.

When was the last time anyone saw Bentley actually kick a ball in anger?

Chances are it will take months to get him fit enough, from what I can see on Wiki he has played around 12 games in the last 12 months or so for West Ham and Rostov.

25 games in two years in total on loan for 3 different clubs with just one goal scored.

Wages reputed to be £3 million pa.

On your other point I don't want us to be linked with anyone until they sign on the dotted line.

Fair play to you Darener, time everyone realized that everybody is entitled to state their own opinion on here, whatever that opinion is. (Unless it becomes abusive). But differing opinions shared between fans is the whole purpose and nature of the site.

You and I have had some good banter on here and often debated about my glass being half full v your glass half empty in the past, but I (usually) respect all of your posts - even though I don't agree with most of them :-)

Long may you continue posting/sharing your comments and thoughts sir. and my best regards to your daughter.

Good move for all concerned. Formica clearly wanted out and I am sure Italian football will suit him better.
What Rovers need now are players with experience of playing at the level we now are unfortunately at. Not Premier League prima donnas on inflated wages but hard working,hard running guys with something to give who will have pride in the shirts.How refreshing it was to see the Bradford players fighting for the cause against a sorry Villa who will be joining us next season.
Am enjoying the silence from our board. Long may it continue and allow MA to quietly bring in his own players and play to a style that he knows best.Let him get on with it and we will support him to the hilt.

To be honist, i liked formica in the early stages but he sloped and things didnt go to plan. he is not what we need at the moment and is a cf or attacking mid, that we have plenty of. If loaning him out brings in funds for a good quick winger to supply rhodes and then king on the other side, we already would look very dangerous. players who do not want to earn the big wages they earn and play for blackburn need to go its that simple. the manager needs players he can depend on and do the job he needs. the players at rovers are lazy overpaid and moan as bad as some daft fans.

as for thwaits open your eyes if this company was so for our area why had they put many pub owners out of business by making rent rates high and making some people struggle to run pubs at a bad time. If they tried to get more money out of rovers than what the small amount of fans turning up and buying their beers yet venkys could get a better deal, i know what id do
To be honist, i liked formica in the early stages but he sloped and things didnt go to plan. he is not what we need at the moment and is a cf or attacking mid, that we have plenty of.

Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons:

Formica
Givet
Dann
Ollson
Robinson

Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.

Fair play to you Darener, time everyone realized that everybody is entitled to state their own opinion on here, whatever that opinion is. (Unless it becomes abusive). But differing opinions shared between fans is the whole purpose and nature of the site.

You and I have had some good banter on here and often debated about my glass being half full v your glass half empty in the past, but I (usually) respect all of your posts - even though I don't agree with most of them :-)

Long may you continue posting/sharing your comments and thoughts sir. and my best regards to your daughter.
Darener, I have no problem at all with anything you have written above. As I suspect most Rovers fans would agree with everything you have written. French Rover has already posted. It just gets so boring reading the same stuff from as a rule the same people over and over again. Moaning and grumbling about it daily isn't going to change a thing. Possibly and I mean only possibly going to Ewood and supporting the team may change something. It is very sad what has happened. Everyone agrees with hat point. Daily rankings is boring though. Very boring. Also to date nobody has come up a better option than Venkys. I viable option! Therefore we have to get on with it. Making statements like Venkys will go bust is just utter tripe. All that shows everyone is a complete lack of understanding on your part. Finally, my good wishes to your daughter.

I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you, everything you say is correct.

But at the end of the day it's all about choice.

Look at what appears to be happening;

The total disaster that was Shebby appears to have been terminated (I was going to use nullified but terminated sounds so much better).

We wanted football people in charge, we may not all like Shaw and Agnew, but they do now appear to be running the club.

We wanted a manager who would talk to us plainly and honestly, no **** or lies, well we appear to have one now.

An added bonus is that he is bringing in his own people, coaches, fitness people and now a "director of football", looks very much like he is in charge to me.

There is absolutely no way Venky's can put right what has happened over the last two years, but it could be they have learned a very hard lesson.

So my choice is to carry on going down to Ewood and support the team I have supported through thick and thin for what is now 42 years.

Hmm - Charlie Austin hasn't played since December and we have managed to win four out of five games in his absence - not so much the one man team you clowns keep harping on about then huh?.

But you keep clinging on to your slim hope that he will be sold and that our season will go pear shaped when he does because it aint gonna happen, and even if it does we will be fine - can you lot say the same?

How are you going to divide your £50 million plus wage bill into £16 million parachute payments?

I have never bought a beer in the ground in over 58 years of attending. That is not the point. It should be apparent to the Venky's by now that the club has a long tradition of supporting local industry, just as local industry has had a long tradition of sponsoring the club. How do they expect local industries to invest in the club if they don't support them?
If I'm not mistaken here Thwaites are relocating and the long standing Building is being demolished ?

Get ready for Tiger beer. The brew of India. Not a bad brew by all accounts.

What is local in these days, I ask ? The world is a smaller place these days.

Correct but they are buikding a new brewery in Blackburn as they want to stay loyal to the area. They could move it anywhere, but in Blackburn they want to stay.
Acknowledged JSBW.

I grew up in Larkhill flats, so Thwaites was always poking me in the eye :)
Of course, this long standing association with BRFC is at an end, but I'm sure at some point when Thwaites have redefined themselves on the scale which they see fit for the business then the connection could very well be resumed down at the good ship Ewood ?

I'll drink to that, but let us see ?

Formica wasn't good enough at the end of the day. No pace, can't beat a man, inability to unlock defences, not a goal scorer and not a provider either-1 goal and 2 assists in 12 appearances isn't good enough at championship level from the new batistuta. Compare this to peds (1 goals, 6 assists in 11 appearances) and everyone's favorite whipping boys CKR and rochina who both have more goals and assists. We've got better options already at the club and shipping him out frees space on the wage bill which hopefully would allow us to bring in 2-3 more players.

Waiting for mxmave to retort will his usual spiel of formica being our most creative player........

Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons:

Formica
Givet
Dann
Ollson
Robinson

Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.
The difference being no one wants your players, were ours are in demand. You have one player that people want and he will be gone soon enough. At least you set your sights high, being 5 points clear of the Rovers. If that's all you strive for then god help you. You and yours constantly come onto our forum moaning we think we are bigger than we are, no we just expect more and have bigger expectations than just finishing above your club. There lies the difference. Your club is insignificant to us where as we clearly always on your mind.

If you've ever 'enjoyed' a pint at Ewood you will know why.

It's not like they dont sell beer at the ground !!!

I have never bought a beer in the ground in over 58 years of attending. That is not the point. It should be apparent to the Venky's by now that the club has a long tradition of supporting local industry, just as local industry has had a long tradition of sponsoring the club. How do they expect local industries to invest in the club if they don't support them?
If I'm not mistaken here Thwaites are relocating and the long standing Building is being demolished ?

Offload Formica to reduce the wage bill? I can name about 30 players i'd let go before i'd let our best and most hard working creative midfielder go.
In fact i'd let go any other player who plays his position:

Kazim Richards
Markus Ollson
Fabio Nunez
Rosado
Vucevic
Rochina
Peds
King
Jorge
Josh Morris

Can you honestly say any of the above are consistently better than Formica? IMO the best options we have are Rochina, King and Vucevic in this position and with Rochina you can flip a coin as to whether he will make or ruin the game and King dosen't have the final ball or vision.
We have let go our best player in this position as far as im concerned.

Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons: Formica Givet Dann Ollson Robinson Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.
the big difference is 3 of those players have not been part of our squad for sometime and wont make much difference, the othe two although a loss we would cope, you lose austin and and to quote your mate nil by mouth "doomed I tell ya".

I would stop coming on here and jump on skysports if i were you "its all about to go Pete Tong for BFC"
Hmm - Charlie Austin hasn't played since December and we have managed to win four out of five games in his absence - not so much the one man team you clowns keep harping on about then huh?.

But you keep clinging on to your slim hope that he will be sold and that our season will go pear shaped when he does because it aint gonna happen, and even if it does we will be fine - can you lot say the same?

How are you going to divide your £50 million plus wage bill into £16 million parachute payments?
Frightening but truthful post.
We'd be screwed without Rhodes and next season financially will be in a real mess.

The next week should be quite interesting, highly likely that Givet and Robbo will leave, maybe Olsson and Dann as well.

I expect Lots of sales or contract terminations in the summer.

Scary part for me personally is some of the names being mentioned, Wiseman, really? Wes Thomas ??

It seems MA has a definite remit to sell and slash the wage bill to help with the clubs overheads and debt.

Thing is we always carried a bit of debt, the Walker Trust lost between 1.5 - 3m pa in respect of operating costs but due to Venky's gross incompetence needed a 21m transfer surplus plus a gift/loan?? Just to cover operating losses over a 18 month period.


The best players were sold and replaced by poor cheap importers on relatively high wages in relation to their talent. As for Shebby's Tapas 6 , I think the least said the better.

I suppose my real point is due to negligence, the club is being returned to where it was before JW arrived, 20 years of work wiped out in 26 months.

And no supporter can be blamed for that!

Looking forward to seeing Leon Best play in this team. If he can reproduce the ability that he had before such a dreadful injury, then there is no doubt he can be a key player for Rovers.

I think we're going to have to be patient though and give him 4/5 months to get back to to the top of his game. We'll see the best of him next season.

Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons: Formica Givet Dann Ollson Robinson Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.
The difference being no one wants your players, were ours are in demand. You have one player that people want and he will be gone soon enough. At least you set your sights high, being 5 points clear of the Rovers. If that's all you strive for then god help you. You and yours constantly come onto our forum moaning we think we are bigger than we are, no we just expect more and have bigger expectations than just finishing above your club. There lies the difference. Your club is insignificant to us where as we clearly always on your mind.
One club interested in Olsen - not really been a stampede for the others has there?
.
Having unrealistic expectations isn't a positive attribute, its absolutley pointless for Rovers to expect promotion this season, it will not happen. A realistic expectation is for MA to sort the club out, a decent finish to the season - top 10.

Given how many times you post on Burnley articles and respond to comments made by Burnley fans they are anything but insignificant to you!
Quite a sensible post. Thank you. I compleatly agree as we stand we should look to build a squad as the one we have isn't premiership quality. However the ultimate goal is to reach the premiership again, not just to finish above your club. It isn't unrealistic expectation, it's what we all want, our respective clubs to gain promotion. I don't get excited about being 5 points clear of our rivals as I have greater ambition than that. That's the difference between us. As a side note I have never posted on the burnley site.

Realistically next season is soon enough for promotion - we need some continuity players need to know the system and have confidence in their own ability - fitness levels improve and the squad more quality less quantity.

Formica is a talent player but how many South Americand and Portuguese players make it English football - very few and lets be honest he wasnt the only one who didnt perform consistently over past 2 years

Clear out those who dont want to stay asap and lets build for a brighter future - the very least the long suffering supporters deserve

Formica simply is not cut out for English football. Enjoy the better weather in Sicily, Mauro and BONNE CHANCE as they say in France - learn your genders, French Rover !
You can sympathise with Givet getting p..d off for having his wages docked for going down - if the rest of the team had put in a good shift as often as he did, we might have stayed up.
I tell you again, Apple is here to use his Pompey experience to keep some semblance of order to cover the exit of Venkys.
Whatever, the merits of Thwaites versus Venkys,(we won the Premieship sponsored by McEwans) it's another PR disaster on the back of the Rolls Royce and 65 minutes. Still, the PR firm has another agenda which is definitely NOT polishing Venkys image in East Lancs but polishing it for a sale.
Sell Dann - he has put on a lot of weight and is even slower this season.
We seem to be in for bargain hunting among journeyman players, at least it cuts out the agents' fee job lots of Portuguese.

Hi Darraner my best wishes to you and your daughter as I know life can be difficult in your position.
I am with you over your right to moan as that is what this site is for.
Me I just feel optimistic for the first time in over two years but time will prove me right or wrong.
Personally I always found that doing what I loved even if things were going wrong helped to alleviate the pressure and I sincerely hope that you can join us all. A good moan at a game always gets rid of a hell of alot of pressure. If not good luck to you and yours.

Me too. I know a lot of fans wont believe me when I say this but never has a fixture with Burnley been so insignificant in my 40 years of watching Rovers. I dont feel excitement or trepidation. The reason being that Burnley is a tadpole in the water and we have Piranhas to contend with. The issues at our club and the desire for some semblance of order and intention far outweighs whether we beat or lose to Burnley. We could win and still end in a poor position in May and similarly we could lose and finish above them. It's simply irrelevant in the greater scheme of things. I am more focused on what happens with Appleton, what Venkys do next, which players go and which come in, 5 points above or below a club down the road is just a side show to the circus we've had. Sometimes in your football club's history other things take precedence over local rivalry.

I just hope that MA is not of the "the cup game isn't important" brigade. Every game is important, none more so than the next game. From that game we can take a win to start us on a run that will boost the optimism of even the likes of me. It doesn't matter who goes or who comes next week only that every body, players, management and fans do the best they can for the club.

I do have sympathy with Givet. He gave his all and I dont go with those who criticise him for have strops. We dont know what went on in those situations. It could be he was standing up to that cretin Kean and maybe if more had done it, we wouldn't have had to suffer him for 2 years. Givet has always worn his heart on his sleeve, not one to just keep his mouth shut. At the same time he signed the contract which included that clause. Maybe he believed Liar Liar when he said "there's no chance of relegation". I dont think so cos none of us believed him and Gael doesnt look like the gullible type to me.

I have never bought a beer in the ground in over 58 years of attending. That is not the point. It should be apparent to the Venky's by now that the club has a long tradition of supporting local industry, just as local industry has had a long tradition of sponsoring the club.

I dont think Venkys will be happy till they have a corner shop /Mini market in each corner of the ground.
Also the days Rovers are not playing at home we will have cricket matches on at Ewood with a nice Bollywood film after, Thus Bollywood will meet Ewood.....

I see flood stepped down from the Burnley Board , apparentleys hes got a taxi run to Celtic with Charlie austin to do.
Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons:

Formica
Givet
Dann
Ollson
Robinson

Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.
Congratulations on your undoubted knowledge of BRFC. Didn't know you cared.
Do you know, I couldn't name five Burnley players. I have only ever heard of Austin and I hear he's on his way soon.

Get ready for Tiger beer. The brew of India. Not a bad brew by all accounts.

What is local in these days, I ask ? The world is a smaller place these days.

Arte et labore
Your geography is well mixed up there Mr Woody……Tiger beer is a Malayan brew….now, talking about India beer…luv the stuff…Cobra, Kingfisher and my new favourite Mongoose a dark beer…….oh also into Japanese beer Aishi……best stick to lions Mr Woody:-)
Not that this is important but his geography is just fine, Tiger is indeed Singaporean, not Indian or Malaysian. 'Malayan' is not even a nationality.

Formica won't be missed. Simply not a Championship player.
I was just teasing RR...prehaps you should check more than one website..... The brewery, Malayan Breweries Limited produced Tiger Beer.....think youll find its not in india
No problem you good folk's.

Always here to be corrected should I be quite wrong :)

To say I've spent many a time in India and Nepal down the years you would think I would know the local brew, but that said, I don't drink !

That is my excuse anyhow !

Cheers one and all(so long as it's a soft drink - J2o is a quality drink - ha ha :)

As for Formica I hope it works out for him at his new club ?

Bring in players who want to fight the good fight for BRFC.

The difference being no one wants your players, were ours are in demand. You have one player that people want and he will be gone soon enough. At least you set your sights high, being 5 points clear of the Rovers. If that's all you strive for then god help you. You and yours constantly come onto our forum moaning we think we are bigger than we are, no we just expect more and have bigger expectations than just finishing above your club. There lies the difference. Your club is insignificant to us where as we clearly always on your mind.
One club interested in Olsen - not really been a stampede for the others has there?
.
Having unrealistic expectations isn't a positive attribute, its absolutley pointless for Rovers to expect promotion this season, it will not happen. A realistic expectation is for MA to sort the club out, a decent finish to the season - top 10.
.
Given how many times you post on Burnley articles and respond to comments made by Burnley fans they are anything but insignificant to you!
Quite a sensible post. Thank you. I compleatly agree as we stand we should look to build a squad as the one we have isn't premiership quality. However the ultimate goal is to reach the premiership again, not just to finish above your club. It isn't unrealistic expectation, it's what we all want, our respective clubs to gain promotion. I don't get excited about being 5 points clear of our rivals as I have greater ambition than that. That's the difference between us. As a side note I have never posted on the burnley site. Thanks for a sensible reply none the less
Me too. I know a lot of fans wont believe me when I say this but never has a fixture with Burnley been so insignificant in my 40 years of watching Rovers. I dont feel excitement or trepidation. The reason being that Burnley is a tadpole in the water and we have Piranhas to contend with. The issues at our club and the desire for some semblance of order and intention far outweighs whether we beat or lose to Burnley. We could win and still end in a poor position in May and similarly we could lose and finish above them. It's simply irrelevant in the greater scheme of things. I am more focused on what happens with Appleton, what Venkys do next, which players go and which come in, 5 points above or below a club down the road is just a side show to the circus we've had. Sometimes in your football club's history other things take precedence over local rivalry.
Hey Too Gay, Not long since you were shooting your mouth off on here and having great fun at our expense. Now suddenly the penny has dropped. `Oh crap, Burnley are above us and might just beat us at Deadwood`. I know, I will pretend I dont care. Pathetic Too Gay, just pathetic.

Mick McCarthys view on Orr:

“He has been excellent,” said McCarthy. “He’s been a really good addition and I’m very sad that he’s going back. He had a tough start in the Leicester game (6-0 away defeat) and, by his own admission, he didn’t play well.

“It’s not easy coming in and playing with new players, but he has been excellent – certainly the last month, last six weeks. Really, really good.”

Hope he is really really good here too.....

Correct but they are buikding a new brewery in Blackburn as they want to stay loyal to the area. They could move it anywhere, but in Blackburn they want to stay.
KINGFISHER is the beer from India , Tiger is Singaporean, the comment about the club supporting local businesses and vice versa is not completely true in recent history a lot of local businesses lost the business they were doing with Rovers when Jack took over , that is fact.
can we just knock this beer nonsense on the head please? FACTS: Thwaites supplied Ewood but 80% of sales were Fosters and Strongbow which Thwaites bought from Heineken. The only The sites product was their bitter.
When the contract was up, Thwaites no longer wanted to pay the pourage rights to supply the stadium so Heineken took over the deal. Although Heineken is Dutch company it is the biggest brewer in the UK and John Smith's is the biggest keg ale in the UK. They also distribute Theakstons and Deuchars so we can now get great cask ales as well. The loss of bitter sales to Thwaites is minimal and I suspect that the money they save on courage rights will save jobs, not lose them

I really don't care believe it. People do have other things going on in their lives you know. Things happen. We aren't all sitting on this site and the world has stopped. You might be but I'm not. We fully expected to get beat at Turf Moor and that wouldn't have bothered me. When you are realistic, you aren't let down. Your fellow fans weren't realistic. Those on sky predicted 3-1 6-0 must have felt stupid after. Burnley beating us will change nothing in my life nor for Blackburn Rovers. Believe it or not, it makes not difference to me. Im not like you. I dont post insults and foul language under Burnley news columns. Im not a fanatical. If you describe shooting my mouth off as responding to those who post foul mouthed messages on here then you must be a school kids. Its what a school kid would say. I work with Burnley fans.

Mick McCarthys view on Orr:

“He has been excellent,” said McCarthy. “He’s been a really good addition and I’m very sad that he’s going back. He had a tough start in the Leicester game (6-0 away defeat) and, by his own admission, he didn’t play well.

“It’s not easy coming in and playing with new players, but he has been excellent – certainly the last month, last six weeks. Really, really good.”

Hope he is really really good here too.....
From my ringside seat,Frenchy,he was about the only one i heard last season,the rest hid.
The difference in players talking on Tuesday compared with Saturday was massive.Let's hope MA can keep them hungry.

It's not like they dont sell beer at the ground !!!

Get over it.....Or perhaps you could go down there with your millions and buy the club !!! Oh u can't!! Like it or not without Venkys our club would b alot worse off !!
I have never bought a beer in the ground in over 58 years of attending. That is not the point. It should be apparent to the Venky's by now that the club has a long tradition of supporting local industry, just as local industry has had a long tradition of sponsoring the club. How do they expect local industries to invest in the club if they don't support them?
If I'm not mistaken here Thwaites are relocating and the long standing Building is being demolished ?

Get ready for Tiger beer. The brew of India. Not a bad brew by all accounts.

What is local in these days, I ask ? The world is a smaller place these days.

Arte et labore
Your geography is well mixed up there Mr Woody……Tiger beer is a Malayan brew….now, talking about India beer…luv the stuff…Cobra, Kingfisher and my new favourite Mongoose a dark beer…….oh also into Japanese beer Aishi……best stick to lions Mr Woody:-)
Not that this is important but his geography is just fine, Tiger is indeed Singaporean, not Indian or Malaysian. 'Malayan' is not even a nationality.

Formica won't be missed. Simply not a Championship player.
I was just teasing RR...prehaps you should check more than one website..... The brewery, Malayan Breweries Limited produced Tiger Beer.....think youll find its not in india
Heineken Also own Kingfisher by the way.

I was at Turf Moor the game before Burnley played at Ewood in their premier league season. They had just beat Birmingham as I remember and singing "bring on the b..ds". We were in hospitality with some business guests some of whom were Burnley ST holders. This one guy was in his 40s but totally obsessed by beating Rovers. Kept ranting on to me about how he heard Rovers fans were having shirts printed and they would just wind the Burnley players up and we would get beat. It was more than banter. He was red faced, couldn't look me in the eye. Although I feel the same rivalry, I couldn't understand somebody of that age getting so worked up. I tried to put things in perspective for him as I actually felt sorry for him. Said "its just a game". He nearly had heart attack, nearly bit my head off and was practically in tears. I thought about that guy when we won the game that he was so certain we would lose. I dont understand Burnley fans who take it to that level. I'v never met any that bad. I have a relative who used to be in the old suicide squad. Even he isnt that bitter. He gives me some stick but has a laugh about it.

Just what are they on? Do they really wish to antagonise the fans even more. It would appear so. They go from one disaster to another with increasing regularity. They will not be satisfied until they have completely destroyed Blackburn Rovers. If they imagine for one minute that they will ever be forgiven for what they have done to our once proud club then they are sadly mistaken.
Just leave and soon!

Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons: Formica Givet Dann Ollson Robinson Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.
The difference being no one wants your players, were ours are in demand. You have one player that people want and he will be gone soon enough. At least you set your sights high, being 5 points clear of the Rovers. If that's all you strive for then god help you. You and yours constantly come onto our forum moaning we think we are bigger than we are, no we just expect more and have bigger expectations than just finishing above your club. There lies the difference. Your club is insignificant to us where as we clearly always on your mind.
One club interested in Olsen - not really been a stampede for the others has there?

Having unrealistic expectations isn't a positive attribute, its absolutley pointless for Rovers to expect promotion this season, it will not happen. A realistic expectation is for MA to sort the club out, a decent finish to the season - top 10.

“It’s not easy coming in and playing with new players, but he has been excellent – certainly the last month, last six weeks. Really, really good.”

Hope he is really really good here too.....
From my ringside seat,Frenchy,he was about the only one i heard last season,the rest hid.
The difference in players talking on Tuesday compared with Saturday was massive.Let's hope MA can keep them hungry.
I reckon Orr will have a point to prove but for me I would keep Kane in at RB, then we have some competition at last at RB. The only trouble with that though is that we only have him (Kane) until the end of the month. Might be worth seeing if Chelsea will let us have him all season? Makes sense to bring Orr back.

The only trouble with that though is that we only have him (Kane) until the end of the month. Might be worth seeing if Chelsea will let us have him all season? Makes sense to bring Orr back.

Like he's going to be reading this! He can't even speak English let alone read it. A complete waste of money from start to finish. Kean played him every week and I can't remember one good thing he did ever in any game AND were still paying some of his wages AND he cost us 3.5m.

I have never bought a beer in the ground in over 58 years of attending. That is not the point. It should be apparent to the Venky's by now that the club has a long tradition of supporting local industry, just as local industry has had a long tradition of sponsoring the club. How do they expect local industries to invest in the club if they don't support them?
If I'm not mistaken here Thwaites are relocating and the long standing Building is being demolished ?

Get ready for Tiger beer. The brew of India. Not a bad brew by all accounts.

What is local in these days, I ask ? The world is a smaller place these days.

Arte et labore
Your geography is well mixed up there Mr Woody……Tiger beer is a Malayan brew….now, talking about India beer…luv the stuff…Cobra, Kingfisher and my new favourite Mongoose a dark beer…….oh also into Japanese beer Aishi……best stick to lions Mr Woody:-)
Not that this is important but his geography is just fine, Tiger is indeed Singaporean, not Indian or Malaysian. 'Malayan' is not even a nationality.

Formica won't be missed. Simply not a Championship player.
I was just teasing RR...prehaps you should check more than one website..... The brewery, Malayan Breweries Limited produced Tiger Beer.....think youll find its not in india
Heineken Also own Kingfisher by the way.
Kingfisher is an Indian beer brewed by United Breweries Group.....it is India's largest selling beer, with 1 out of every 3 bottles of beer sold in India being a Kingfisher brand. It is currently available in 52 countries outside India.
The Heineken Group holds 37.5% equity shares in United Breweries Ltd.

Whatever, the merits of Thwaites versus Venkys,(we won the Premieship sponsored by McEwans) it's another PR disaster on the back of the Rolls Royce and 65 minutes. Still, the PR firm has another agenda which is definitely NOT polishing Venkys image in East Lancs but polishing it for a sale.
Sell Dann - he has put on a lot of weight and is even slower this season.
We seem to be in for bargain hunting among journeyman players, at least it cuts out the agents' fee job lots of Portuguese.
I do have sympathy with Givet. He gave his all and I dont go with those who criticise him for have strops. We dont know what went on in those situations. It could be he was standing up to that cretin Kean and maybe if more had done it, we wouldn't have had to suffer him for 2 years. Givet has always worn his heart on his sleeve, not one to just keep his mouth shut. At the same time he signed the contract which included that clause. Maybe he believed Liar Liar when he said "there's no chance of relegation". I dont think so cos none of us believed him and Gael doesnt look like the gullible type to me.
Gael not the gullable type, didn't he give the taxi driver his signing on fee for driving him from the airport? and as far as wearing his heart on his sleeve, was that before or after he refused to play the second half because we were losing.

Beer is beer, I don't drink in the afternoons, or drink and drive, a traffic cop I knew once cured me of that when he showed me some photos of the results of accidents that the public never sees.

As I said before, overpriced, mass produced muck, nothing better.

When I get home from a game I might open a bottle of Wychwood, Shepherds Neame, Pendle Witches, Old Tom or any other decent beer I have in the cupboard, Spindrift, Erdinger, even Tiger, or perhaps an American craft beer, totally depends on what I have to hand and what I am cooking for the evening meal.

But a Thwaites "Smooth", please don't make me vomit, I wouldn't wish that crud on Burnley fans, or even Steve Kean, might force feed it to Shebby though.

Tiger was born in Singapore 1932 and Heineken upped their stake in United Breweries in 2012 though the former owner Vijay Mallia is still a minority shareholder. Unfortunately Vijay prefers motor racing to football or he could have very easily bought BRFC with the proceeds of the sale to Heineken. They also own Sol, the Mexican beer but no doubt you will try to persuade me that it's Argentinian!

Think you might be missing the point......tiger beer has been produced by Malayan Breweries Limited (with factories throughout Malaysia/Singapore )the company was formed in 1931 one year before they produced tiger beer......since 1963 Singapore is part of Malaysia
So, tiger beer is produced in Malaysia still to this day, obviously brewery plants worldwide now bottle it....but, the clue is 'bottle it'......genuine tiger beer uses water from Malaysia as would Cerveza Quilmes Argentine's most popular beer use water from Buenos Aires Province.

Mick McCarthys view on Orr:

“It’s not easy coming in and playing with new players, but he has been excellent – certainly the last month, last six weeks. Really, really good.”

Hope he is really really good here too.....
From my ringside seat,Frenchy,he was about the only one i heard last season,the rest hid.
The difference in players talking on Tuesday compared with Saturday was massive.Let's hope MA can keep them hungry.
I reckon Orr will have a point to prove but for me I would keep Kane in at RB, then we have some competition at last at RB. The only trouble with that though is that we only have him (Kane) until the end of the month. Might be worth seeing if Chelsea will let us have him all season? Makes sense to bring Orr back.
Now then Mr French, don't let that little bit of BS fool you, its no surprise that McCarthy speaks highly of him, he doesn't want to admit it was a mistake to take him and Bradley Orr is a brown-nose of the highest order.

When he was here last he was so far up Steve Kean we could only recognise him by the colour of his boots. Obviously did the same for big Mick because he thought his career might be rescued again.

I'd play Kane, then Henley or Lowe at RB before I'd want Orr back in the blue and white halves.

I'd play Kane, then Henley or Lowe at RB before I'd want Orr back in the blue and white halves. greenscreener

Think you might be missing the point......tiger beer has been produced by Malayan Breweries Limited (with factories throughout Malaysia/Singapore )the company was formed in 1931 one year before they produced tiger beer......since 1963 Singapore is part of Malaysia
So, tiger beer is produced in Malaysia still to this day, obviously brewery plants worldwide now bottle it....but, the clue is 'bottle it'......genuine tiger beer uses water from Malaysia as would Cerveza Quilmes Argentine's most popular beer use water from Buenos Aires Province.

I see flood stepped down from the Burnley Board , apparentleys hes got a taxi run to Celtic with Charlie austin to do.
Ha ha - except the difference between our two sides (Apart from the five points that is) is that our players aren't desperate to leave like all your goons: Formica Givet Dann Ollson Robinson Etc etc - all can't wait until some club (Any club) come in for them.
The difference being no one wants your players, were ours are in demand. You have one player that people want and he will be gone soon enough. At least you set your sights high, being 5 points clear of the Rovers. If that's all you strive for then god help you. You and yours constantly come onto our forum moaning we think we are bigger than we are, no we just expect more and have bigger expectations than just finishing above your club. There lies the difference. Your club is insignificant to us where as we clearly always on your mind.
One club interested in Olsen - not really been a stampede for the others has there?
.
Having unrealistic expectations isn't a positive attribute, its absolutley pointless for Rovers to expect promotion this season, it will not happen. A realistic expectation is for MA to sort the club out, a decent finish to the season - top 10.
.
Given how many times you post on Burnley articles and respond to comments made by Burnley fans they are anything but insignificant to you!
Quite a sensible post. Thank you. I compleatly agree as we stand we should look to build a squad as the one we have isn't premiership quality. However the ultimate goal is to reach the premiership again, not just to finish above your club. It isn't unrealistic expectation, it's what we all want, our respective clubs to gain promotion. I don't get excited about being 5 points clear of our rivals as I have greater ambition than that. That's the difference between us. As a side note I have never posted on the burnley site. Thanks for a sensible reply none the less
Me too. I know a lot of fans wont believe me when I say this but never has a fixture with Burnley been so insignificant in my 40 years of watching Rovers. I dont feel excitement or trepidation. The reason being that Burnley is a tadpole in the water and we have Piranhas to contend with. The issues at our club and the desire for some semblance of order and intention far outweighs whether we beat or lose to Burnley. We could win and still end in a poor position in May and similarly we could lose and finish above them. It's simply irrelevant in the greater scheme of things. I am more focused on what happens with Appleton, what Venkys do next, which players go and which come in, 5 points above or below a club down the road is just a side show to the circus we've had. Sometimes in your football club's history other things take precedence over local rivalry.
Love it. Funny how insignificant we we're when you were all creaming your pants after going a goal up at the turf. At least order was returned when we got a deserved goal back. Blackburn took a mauling that day and the point is your team and the infrastructure around it has weakened even since then, and with talk of rebuilding half way through the season and more of your senior pro's wanting out I think you could well be on the end of a beating if not a hiding when the Clarets visit in March. It's all well and good saying Burnley are a tadpole, but that tadpole is now 5 points above you in the League with more team spirit and playing better football than you've seen down at Ewood in many a year.

Hi owd nik, A real ale man myself. In addition to your excellent recommendations I would suggest a couple of bottles of 'Old Man' from the Coniston brewery or perhaps a 'Snecklifter' from Jennings.........Pro

per stuff.
Not tried Coniston's Old Man yet but "Snecklifter" is a classic.

They have a good choice of craft beers at Barton Grange, sure I've seen "Old Man" there so I may treat myself next time we wander up.
