Dyche: Burnley supporters must stay positive

Lancashire Telegraph: Sean Dyche Sean Dyche

SEAN Dyche welcomed being a point closer to the Championship summit, and said supporters should too.

The Clarets were knocked off top spot for the first time in two months following defeat to Huddersfield on Saturday.

And although a goalless draw at home to Watford in midweek meant a fifth league game without a win – albeit just one defeat in 14 games – the result drew Burnley back to within a point of first place, despite dropping out of the top two and down to the bare bones of their squad following injuries to top scorer Danny Ings and midfielder Dean Marney, and Michael Duff’s one match ban.

“There was a funny feeling in the ground, a couple of ironic cheers of players,” said Dyche.

“That’s interesting when you’re third in the table and a point off the top.

“It depends how your cup is, whether it’s half full or half empty.

“Teams don’t come to Turf Moor and lay down and let us win, they come here to work hard.

“We’re happy with what we’re achieving here and we want to achieve more.

“We don’t want to settle for it and there’s no sign of that.

“There was a really strong performance in many areas.

“We’ve made a good habit of how strong our physicality is and I thought for the last 10 minutes the lads were full out to get a win and I think that’s an invaluable quality over a season.”

And Dyche was satisfied with the outcome of the changes he had to make, with Scott Arfield playing off lone striker Sam Vokes in Ings’ absence, Kevin Long deputising for Duff, a double change out wide with both Junior Stanislas and Keith Treacy starting, and Brian Stock lining up alongside David Jones in central midfield.

“We were down to virtually the end of our squad and we had to make changes.

“Those changes delivered on the whole a reasonable performance and could have edged it,” said the Burnley boss. “I think they did well in general but it’s not always easy when you’re coming in and out and then back in again.

“Mostly there were some good signs and in the first half we dominated.

“That’s not an easy thing to do against good side.

“But on the whole it’s another point gained and another point closer to the top."

Exactly! Let get back to winning ways with a good solid convincing performance against bottom of the league Barnsley.
This is the first and hopefully only minor blip. Let's get to January unscathed and add some resolve to the squad. This is an absolute must.

Let's not forget that before the season started very few of us would have thought we'd be where we are now in December so let's remain positive, the glass is just over three quarters full unlike the no dads glass that seems to have a hole in it somewhere.

Unfortunately, a minority will always be heard over a majority, but l can assure Sean that most of our fans are right behind you.
With our resources and budget, Sean has done an incredible job and l think we can count ourselves very lucky to have him.
We knew that with our small squad, we could have a run where results might not go our way, but this is a time to really get behind the team and show our confidence in our manager.
Lets hope the board can do the same and maybe strengthen our squad during the next window.

Without a doubt. No matter how tight things are The board must find funding to enable Sean to buy. The whole season hinges on it. If we were mid/lower table at this point I would understand the board not wanting to put their hands in their pockets. But third, two points off top spot has to be worth the risk of shelling out a few quid for what rewards can be reaped come May.

It never surprises me how fickle some football fans can be, especially some Burnley fans. We are 3rd in the table for Christ sake and one point off the top with the smallest squad in the league and probably the smallest budget in the league. Some Burnley fans think we have a 'divine right' to be challenging for 1st place in the championship, when in actual fact when you take in all the facts, on paper we should be nowhere near. Tuesday night we had key players missing and was up against a Watford side that hadn't won in 6 games and were due to come good with the squad they have. It's another good point on the board considering. When the games come thick and fast over Christmas time like they are starting to do, everybody needs to be singing from the same hymn sheet as it were and not have a minority of clueless fans, and that's what they are, absolutely clueless, putting a dampener on our terrific start to the season. Keep playing and thinking positive, the glass is very much half full so long as Sean Dyche is Burnley Manager.

And Agent Bowyer is doing an absolutely sterling job in dragging you set of losers back down to where you belong.

Only in your wildest dreams could you imagine being as high as third place in the table, so keep looking up at your bigger and better neighbours and try and stop the jealousy. The sooner you realise your place is behind Burnley in the grand scheme of things, the easier you will find getting on with your life.

Speculate to accumulate, completely agree with your comments. My fear is the board will be of an opinion of well we got this far without having to spend more. It is not Dyche or the players that could hold us back, they have been magnificent, can the board equal their performance?

Also, we need Sean to identify young talent, just like we trusted Eddie. Look at the profit we made from Charlie and will from Danny.
But after that, there isn't a whole lot left as Tripps or Ben wouldn't command as big a fee as say a young striker.
This is the way clubs like us, have to operate.

A double agent. Will he surpass Special Agent Bond, John Bond? That man should be given a medal for bumming that club. BRFC:ThePeoplesChampions

Wow....1974. That is fcuking sad and desperate. (BTW: Rovers were in Division 3 at the time).

Here are some painful FACTS:

There are only 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

It is worth bearing in mind the following when comparing the statistics between Blackburn Rovers' and Burnley's support.

Blackburn Rovers' post-war decline began at the end of the 1965-1966 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Burnley's post-war decline began at the end of the 1975-76 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Blackburn Rovers had only known 8 years in Division 1 - with 14 years in Division 2 and 4 years in Division 3: They had only enjoyed 8 years of top flight football.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Burnley had enjoyed 24 years in Division 1 - and just 2 years in DiviSIon 2: They had enjoyed 24 years of top flight football.

The above makes a mockery of Burnley supporters assertions that they are a better supported club whose are more loyal; whilst Rovers supporters are fickle.

There are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

Burnley fans generally present themselves as a braying troupe of delusional zealots.

They edit their own history and perpetuate the myth that Burnley are a "big football club", they do this because they have too much emotional investment in the lie and are too insolent to deal with reality.

Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd.

Thinking about them makes my brain feel dirty, they lower the bar of intelligent football discourse every time they open their beer and fag stinking mouths. They tunnel under and then occupy the moral high ground; immune to the evidence, immune to facts, their beliefs are provable falsehoods that they do not have the courage to confront.

Most have demonstrated that they have no knowledge of anything at all, particularly Blackburn Rovers and football - but they do have one talent - the ability to ignore what they dare not acknowledge - that Blackburn Rovers are a bigger, better supported and more successful football club than Burnley.

Why is it that in the information age it is almost impossible to get information into people's brains?

One of the common Blackburn baiting totems by the Burnley myth making machine is that Burnley are a better supported club than Blackburn Rovers: This is a package of b0ll0cks.

Turf Moor = TURD MORGUE
In the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article we are informed:

"Post-WWI crowds in the stadium averaged in the 30,000–40,000 range with the record attendance set in 1924 against Huddersfield Town in a FA Cup match when 54,755 attended the match."

Besides being badly written with no sources to back it up, this is of course complete nonsense.

The author also does not specify what period "post-WWI" covers so I have given the benefit of the doubt to the author and calculated Turf Moor's average attendance for the 10 years between 1918-1928. Turf Moor's average attendance was: 19.117.

What we have here is just another example of (1) Burnley myth making and (2) how completely unreliable Wikipedia is.

I have attempted to correct the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article and have provided sources to back my alteration up and have also attempted to engage in discussion in order to establish my credibility but my correct alteration has simply been reverted back to the false information and my attempts at 'discussion' have been ignored or met with abuse.

Wikipedia is not interested in the search for truth.

It is also worth considering the following narrative when engaging with Burnley Trolls:

Burnley fans boo their team - it's passion, they cannot bare to see pampared mediocre footballers wearing their clubs colours without pride; Rovers' fans boo - it's because they're fickle.

Burnley fans fail to vocally support their team - it's an anxious silelence; Rovers' fans fail to vocally support their team - it's because they lack passion.

Burnley fans leave Turf Moor 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - it's because the parking facilities are notoriously bad at Turf Moor; Rovers fans leave 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - they're sneered at.

Burnley fans stay away in their thousands when Burnley are relegated from the Premier League - nothing is said; Ewood Park's attendance drops when Rovers are relegated from the Premier League - it's because Rovers' fans think they're too good to watch football in a lower division.

Burnley's attendances improve when Burnley win - they're genuine fans; Rovers' attendances improve when Rovers win - they're 'plastic fans'.

Indeed, the Burnley accusation of fickle Rovers fans is an odd one; when did this 'glory hunting' support begin?

1987 when Rovers won the Full Members Cup?
1987 when Jack Walker started investing money into the club?
1987 when Rovers signed Steve Archibald from Barcelona on loan?
1988 when Rovers signed Osvaldo Ardiles?
1988 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1989 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1990 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1991 when Jack Walker bought the club?
1991 when Kenny Dalglish became the manager of the club?
1992 when Rovers won promotion to the Premier League?
1992 when Rovers signed Alan Shearer for a British transfer record?
1994 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers won the Premier League?
1998 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2002 when Rovers won the League Cup?
2002 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2003 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2006 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the Intertoto Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc?

Opinions seem to differ. That Burnley fans are jealous is obvious.

There are many enduring myths in football, that Burnley are a bigger and better supported club than Blackburn Rovers is but one of them.

However, I believe in facts.

Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. It may come as a shock to some, but there have only been 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers - the last time being just over a quarter of a century ago in the 1980's, 30 years to be precise - 1983.

Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances.

It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000.

The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000.

I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour.

Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s.

The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below).

Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below.

Blackburn Rovers
1958 2 22.708
1958 2 23.091
1958 2 26.928

Burnley
1958 1 22.251
1957 1 22.493
1955 1 25.094

The 1960’s.
Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater.

In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th.
Blackburn Rovers
1960 1 27.299

Burnley
1960 1 26.978

Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's.
Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed.

Rovers' decline began in 1966.

Burnley's decline began in 1977.

1970’s/1980’s
Blackburn Rovers
1975 3 12.651
1974 3 7.432
1973 3 9.214
1972 3 8.256

Burnley
1985 3 4.177
1984 3 6.625
1982 3 6.936
1981 3 6.469

At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.
2000’s
Blackburn Rovers
2001 2 20.740

Burnley
2001 2 16.442

Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.

2010’s
Blackburn Rovers
2010 1 25.428

Burnley
2010 1 20.654

At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it.

Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers
2013 2 15.182

Burnley
2013 2 12.928

In summary:
Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years.

In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division.

In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In 15 years out of the 40 yearswhen the two clubs have been in the same Division - Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

In total, there are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In total, there are 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

64 years of the 92 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendanced than Burnley came when Burnley were in a lower Division.

17 years of the 32 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers came when Blackburn Rovers were in a lower Division.

Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley when in a lower Division than Burnley - 1955, 1957, 1958.

Burnley have never averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers when in a lower Division than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers were last Champions of England in 1995 and everaged higher attendances than Burnley during their title winning season - Burnley were in a lower Division.

Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and Blackburn Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season -Blackburn Rovers were in the same Division.

Burnley’s support is sh!t and they know it is, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to create such a grubby little myth in the first place.

Visit my web site, spread the word.

There was a snide PNE fan on here earlier in the year posting utter bile - really poisonous stuff - about our support. With the exception of the 1950's, decade after decade PNE have consistently been the least supported club out of Rovers, B*rnley and Bolton.

The thing about Rovers is that people EXPECT them to have 30-40,000 every week. The reason for this is because Rovers are a huge club - in a small town; this is a unique footballing anomaly. How can such a big club come from such a small town? People just can't warp their heads around it.

Rovers are too small to compete with Manchester United and Liverpool but too big to accept the mediocrity of bland clubs like B*rnley, PNE, Bolton, Wigan, Fulham, WBA etc etc etc.

When you look at what Rovers have achieved from the earliest days of football right through to the 1990's, it is astonishing. That is why the London media don't like us and why B*rnley, Bolton and PNE are so envious and jealous.

Few people know because it is rarely acknowledged in the southern media that Rovers' founder John Lewis spread the game to South America and that Rovers along with Villa were pivotal in the setting up of the football League, the game turning professional and football becoming a mass working-class sport.

Indeed football historians accept that THE most important event in the history of English football - and the game - was Blackburn Olympic winning the FA Cup and Blackburn Rovers winning it 3 years in a row, thus forever cementing the game as a working-class spectator sport, the rest, as they say, is history.

Yet B*rnley fans have the temerity to say that Blackburn is not a proper footballing town. This is astonishing arrogance. I'd also like to know why Blackburn had a football club 7 years before B*rnley if we're not a 'proper footballing town" and why B*rnley started off as a Rugby Club called - would you believe it - called Burnley Rovers - and who also played in Blue 'n' white halves. You couldn't make this stuff up.... but hey... "not a proper footballing town is Blackburn... never has been."

Oh dear.
Hello chicken brain still living in past eh. Last season, last season. Oh dear me what about 1974 average gate at Bollywood about 7000. You'll be there again and lower soon. Your crowds are dropping faster Dangling Dick's pants
Wow....1974. That is fcuking sad and desperate. (BTW: Rovers were in Division 3 at the time).

Here are some painful FACTS:

There are only 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

It is worth bearing in mind the following when comparing the statistics between Blackburn Rovers' and Burnley's support.

Blackburn Rovers' post-war decline began at the end of the 1965-1966 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Burnley's post-war decline began at the end of the 1975-76 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Blackburn Rovers had only known 8 years in Division 1 - with 14 years in Division 2 and 4 years in Division 3: They had only enjoyed 8 years of top flight football.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Burnley had enjoyed 24 years in Division 1 - and just 2 years in DiviSIon 2: They had enjoyed 24 years of top flight football.

The above makes a mockery of Burnley supporters assertions that they are a better supported club whose are more loyal; whilst Rovers supporters are fickle.

There are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

Burnley fans generally present themselves as a braying troupe of delusional zealots.

They edit their own history and perpetuate the myth that Burnley are a "big football club", they do this because they have too much emotional investment in the lie and are too insolent to deal with reality.

Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd.

Thinking about them makes my brain feel dirty, they lower the bar of intelligent football discourse every time they open their beer and fag stinking mouths. They tunnel under and then occupy the moral high ground; immune to the evidence, immune to facts, their beliefs are provable falsehoods that they do not have the courage to confront.

Most have demonstrated that they have no knowledge of anything at all, particularly Blackburn Rovers and football - but they do have one talent - the ability to ignore what they dare not acknowledge - that Blackburn Rovers are a bigger, better supported and more successful football club than Burnley.

Why is it that in the information age it is almost impossible to get information into people's brains?

One of the common Blackburn baiting totems by the Burnley myth making machine is that Burnley are a better supported club than Blackburn Rovers: This is a package of b0ll0cks.

Turf Moor = TURD MORGUE
In the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article we are informed:

"Post-WWI crowds in the stadium averaged in the 30,000–40,000 range with the record attendance set in 1924 against Huddersfield Town in a FA Cup match when 54,755 attended the match."

Besides being badly written with no sources to back it up, this is of course complete nonsense.

The author also does not specify what period "post-WWI" covers so I have given the benefit of the doubt to the author and calculated Turf Moor's average attendance for the 10 years between 1918-1928. Turf Moor's average attendance was: 19.117.

What we have here is just another example of (1) Burnley myth making and (2) how completely unreliable Wikipedia is.

I have attempted to correct the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article and have provided sources to back my alteration up and have also attempted to engage in discussion in order to establish my credibility but my correct alteration has simply been reverted back to the false information and my attempts at 'discussion' have been ignored or met with abuse.

Wikipedia is not interested in the search for truth.

It is also worth considering the following narrative when engaging with Burnley Trolls:

Burnley fans boo their team - it's passion, they cannot bare to see pampared mediocre footballers wearing their clubs colours without pride; Rovers' fans boo - it's because they're fickle.

Burnley fans fail to vocally support their team - it's an anxious silelence; Rovers' fans fail to vocally support their team - it's because they lack passion.

Burnley fans leave Turf Moor 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - it's because the parking facilities are notoriously bad at Turf Moor; Rovers fans leave 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - they're sneered at.

Burnley fans stay away in their thousands when Burnley are relegated from the Premier League - nothing is said; Ewood Park's attendance drops when Rovers are relegated from the Premier League - it's because Rovers' fans think they're too good to watch football in a lower division.

Burnley's attendances improve when Burnley win - they're genuine fans; Rovers' attendances improve when Rovers win - they're 'plastic fans'.

Indeed, the Burnley accusation of fickle Rovers fans is an odd one; when did this 'glory hunting' support begin?

1987 when Rovers won the Full Members Cup?
1987 when Jack Walker started investing money into the club?
1987 when Rovers signed Steve Archibald from Barcelona on loan?
1988 when Rovers signed Osvaldo Ardiles?
1988 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1989 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1990 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1991 when Jack Walker bought the club?
1991 when Kenny Dalglish became the manager of the club?
1992 when Rovers won promotion to the Premier League?
1992 when Rovers signed Alan Shearer for a British transfer record?
1994 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers won the Premier League?
1998 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2002 when Rovers won the League Cup?
2002 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2003 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2006 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the Intertoto Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc?

Opinions seem to differ. That Burnley fans are jealous is obvious.

There are many enduring myths in football, that Burnley are a bigger and better supported club than Blackburn Rovers is but one of them.

However, I believe in facts.

Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. It may come as a shock to some, but there have only been 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers - the last time being just over a quarter of a century ago in the 1980's, 30 years to be precise - 1983.

Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances.

It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000.

The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000.

I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour.

Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s.

The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below).

Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below.

Blackburn Rovers
1958 2 22.708
1958 2 23.091
1958 2 26.928

Burnley
1958 1 22.251
1957 1 22.493
1955 1 25.094

The 1960’s.
Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater.

In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th.
Blackburn Rovers
1960 1 27.299

Burnley
1960 1 26.978

Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's.
Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed.

Rovers' decline began in 1966.

Burnley's decline began in 1977.

1970’s/1980’s
Blackburn Rovers
1975 3 12.651
1974 3 7.432
1973 3 9.214
1972 3 8.256

Burnley
1985 3 4.177
1984 3 6.625
1982 3 6.936
1981 3 6.469

At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.
2000’s
Blackburn Rovers
2001 2 20.740

Burnley
2001 2 16.442

Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.

2010’s
Blackburn Rovers
2010 1 25.428

Burnley
2010 1 20.654

At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it.

Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers
2013 2 15.182

Burnley
2013 2 12.928

In summary:
Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years.

In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division.

In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In 15 years out of the 40 yearswhen the two clubs have been in the same Division - Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

In total, there are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In total, there are 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

64 years of the 92 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendanced than Burnley came when Burnley were in a lower Division.

17 years of the 32 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers came when Blackburn Rovers were in a lower Division.

Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley when in a lower Division than Burnley - 1955, 1957, 1958.

Burnley have never averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers when in a lower Division than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers were last Champions of England in 1995 and everaged higher attendances than Burnley during their title winning season - Burnley were in a lower Division.

Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and Blackburn Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season -Blackburn Rovers were in the same Division.

Burnley’s support is sh!t and they know it is, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to create such a grubby little myth in the first place.

Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc? Opinions seem to differ. That Burnley fans are jealous is obvious. There are many enduring myths in football, that Burnley are a bigger and better supported club than Blackburn Rovers is but one of them. However, I believe in facts. Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. It may come as a shock to some, but there have only been 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers - the last time being just over a quarter of a century ago in the 1980's, 30 years to be precise - 1983. Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances. It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000. The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000. I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour. Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s. The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below). Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below. Blackburn Rovers 1958 2 22.708 1958 2 23.091 1958 2 26.928 Burnley 1958 1 22.251 1957 1 22.493 1955 1 25.094 The 1960’s. Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater. In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th. Blackburn Rovers 1960 1 27.299 Burnley 1960 1 26.978 Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed. Rovers' decline began in 1966. Burnley's decline began in 1977. 1970’s/1980’s Blackburn Rovers 1975 3 12.651 1974 3 7.432 1973 3 9.214 1972 3 8.256 Burnley 1985 3 4.177 1984 3 6.625 1982 3 6.936 1981 3 6.469 At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship. This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch. 2000’s Blackburn Rovers 2001 2 20.740 Burnley 2001 2 16.442 Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League. This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch. 2010’s Blackburn Rovers 2010 1 25.428 Burnley 2010 1 20.654 At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship. This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it. Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn Rovers 2013 2 15.182 Burnley 2013 2 12.928 In summary: Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division. In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

Indeed. The biggest club in the world with more Away fans than at home....well, according to the myth that is until the Football League started keeping a record. Rovers out supported the Dingles Home AND away last season:

Oh dear.
Hello chicken brain still living in past eh. Last season, last season. Oh dear me what about 1974 average gate at Bollywood about 7000. You'll be there again and lower soon. Your crowds are dropping faster Dangling Dick's pants
Wow....1974. That is fcuking sad and desperate. (BTW: Rovers were in Division 3 at the time).

Here are some painful FACTS:

There are only 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

It is worth bearing in mind the following when comparing the statistics between Blackburn Rovers' and Burnley's support.

Blackburn Rovers' post-war decline began at the end of the 1965-1966 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Burnley's post-war decline began at the end of the 1975-76 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Blackburn Rovers had only known 8 years in Division 1 - with 14 years in Division 2 and 4 years in Division 3: They had only enjoyed 8 years of top flight football.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Burnley had enjoyed 24 years in Division 1 - and just 2 years in DiviSIon 2: They had enjoyed 24 years of top flight football.

The above makes a mockery of Burnley supporters assertions that they are a better supported club whose are more loyal; whilst Rovers supporters are fickle.

There are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

Burnley fans generally present themselves as a braying troupe of delusional zealots.

They edit their own history and perpetuate the myth that Burnley are a "big football club", they do this because they have too much emotional investment in the lie and are too insolent to deal with reality.

Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd.

Thinking about them makes my brain feel dirty, they lower the bar of intelligent football discourse every time they open their beer and fag stinking mouths. They tunnel under and then occupy the moral high ground; immune to the evidence, immune to facts, their beliefs are provable falsehoods that they do not have the courage to confront.

Most have demonstrated that they have no knowledge of anything at all, particularly Blackburn Rovers and football - but they do have one talent - the ability to ignore what they dare not acknowledge - that Blackburn Rovers are a bigger, better supported and more successful football club than Burnley.

Why is it that in the information age it is almost impossible to get information into people's brains?

One of the common Blackburn baiting totems by the Burnley myth making machine is that Burnley are a better supported club than Blackburn Rovers: This is a package of b0ll0cks.

Turf Moor = TURD MORGUE
In the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article we are informed:

"Post-WWI crowds in the stadium averaged in the 30,000–40,000 range with the record attendance set in 1924 against Huddersfield Town in a FA Cup match when 54,755 attended the match."

Besides being badly written with no sources to back it up, this is of course complete nonsense.

The author also does not specify what period "post-WWI" covers so I have given the benefit of the doubt to the author and calculated Turf Moor's average attendance for the 10 years between 1918-1928. Turf Moor's average attendance was: 19.117.

What we have here is just another example of (1) Burnley myth making and (2) how completely unreliable Wikipedia is.

I have attempted to correct the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article and have provided sources to back my alteration up and have also attempted to engage in discussion in order to establish my credibility but my correct alteration has simply been reverted back to the false information and my attempts at 'discussion' have been ignored or met with abuse.

Wikipedia is not interested in the search for truth.

It is also worth considering the following narrative when engaging with Burnley Trolls:

Burnley fans boo their team - it's passion, they cannot bare to see pampared mediocre footballers wearing their clubs colours without pride; Rovers' fans boo - it's because they're fickle.

Burnley fans fail to vocally support their team - it's an anxious silelence; Rovers' fans fail to vocally support their team - it's because they lack passion.

Burnley fans leave Turf Moor 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - it's because the parking facilities are notoriously bad at Turf Moor; Rovers fans leave 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - they're sneered at.

Burnley fans stay away in their thousands when Burnley are relegated from the Premier League - nothing is said; Ewood Park's attendance drops when Rovers are relegated from the Premier League - it's because Rovers' fans think they're too good to watch football in a lower division.

Burnley's attendances improve when Burnley win - they're genuine fans; Rovers' attendances improve when Rovers win - they're 'plastic fans'.

Indeed, the Burnley accusation of fickle Rovers fans is an odd one; when did this 'glory hunting' support begin?

1987 when Rovers won the Full Members Cup?
1987 when Jack Walker started investing money into the club?
1987 when Rovers signed Steve Archibald from Barcelona on loan?
1988 when Rovers signed Osvaldo Ardiles?
1988 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1989 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1990 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1991 when Jack Walker bought the club?
1991 when Kenny Dalglish became the manager of the club?
1992 when Rovers won promotion to the Premier League?
1992 when Rovers signed Alan Shearer for a British transfer record?
1994 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers won the Premier League?
1998 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2002 when Rovers won the League Cup?
2002 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2003 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2006 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the Intertoto Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc?

In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th.
Blackburn Rovers

Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's.
Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed.

Rovers' decline began in 1966.

Burnley's decline began in 1977.

WOW, thanks for those compelling stats stato.

Do you actually have a girlfriend? Do you still live at home with yer mum?

When you're not filling your day with underwhelming facts do you visit the dust museum by any chance.

My advice to you is buy a dictionary and look up the words "WOMEN" and "LAGER", you autistic no dad.
:-)

Really annoying, aren't they, those facts?

First on almost every Rovers article, a word count running into the thousands - and the effort you put into your posts as well. Do you spray spittle on to your PC monitor as you hammer out your responses? You have the temerity to question the mental health and the sexual prowess of me? You fcuking sad gimp. I imagine you to be a bedsit dweller and a bit of a failure, tbh. I bet you have dirty finger nails and when the girls look at you they think, "Cheese c0ck." Wet your bed as a boy, i'll bet.

You remind me of a lad i used to work with from B*rnley, around the early 90's it was. He used to get really angry about Uncle Jack etc and how p!ss poor B*rnley were. He'd get so angry and have these aggressive outbursts and try fronting up to people but you could tell he was a soft tw@t really, he'd have tears in his too. Everyone felt a bit sorry for him. I did any way.

Wonder what became of him.

Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances. It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000. The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000. I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour. Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s. The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below). Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below. Blackburn Rovers 1958 2 22.708 1958 2 23.091 1958 2 26.928 Burnley 1958 1 22.251 1957 1 22.493 1955 1 25.094 The 1960’s. Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater. In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th. Blackburn Rovers 1960 1 27.299 Burnley 1960 1 26.978 Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed. Rovers' decline began in 1966. Burnley's decline began in 1977. 1970’s/1980’s Blackburn Rovers 1975 3 12.651 1974 3 7.432 1973 3 9.214 1972 3 8.256 Burnley 1985 3 4.177 1984 3 6.625 1982 3 6.936 1981 3 6.469 At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship. This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch. 2000’s Blackburn Rovers 2001 2 20.740 Burnley 2001 2 16.442 Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League. This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch. 2010’s Blackburn Rovers 2010 1 25.428 Burnley 2010 1 20.654 At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship. This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it. Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn Rovers 2013 2 15.182 Burnley 2013 2 12.928 In summary: Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division. In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley. In 15 years out of the 40 yearswhen the two clubs have been in the same Division - Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers. In total, there are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley. In total, there are 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers. 64 years of the 92 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendanced than Burnley came when Burnley were in a lower Division. 17 years of the 32 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers came when Blackburn Rovers were in a lower Division. Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley when in a lower Division than Burnley - 1955, 1957, 1958. Burnley have never averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers when in a lower Division than Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn Rovers were last Champions of England in 1995 and everaged higher attendances than Burnley during their title winning season - Burnley were in a lower Division. Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and Blackburn Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season -Blackburn Rovers were in the same Division. Burnley’s support is sh!t and they know it is, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to create such a grubby little myth in the first place.

When you're not filling your day with underwhelming facts do you visit the dust museum by any chance. My advice to you is buy a dictionary and look up the words "WOMEN" and "LAGER", you autistic no dad.[/p][/quote]:-) Really annoying, aren't they, those facts? First on almost every Rovers article, a word count running into the thousands - and the effort you put into your posts as well. Do you spray spittle on to your PC monitor as you hammer out your responses? You have the temerity to question the mental health and the sexual prowess of me? You fcuking sad gimp. I imagine you to be a bedsit dweller and a bit of a failure, tbh. I bet you have dirty finger nails and when the girls look at you they think, "Cheese c0ck." Wet your bed as a boy, i'll bet. You remind me of a lad i used to work with from B*rnley, around the early 90's it was. He used to get really angry about Uncle Jack etc and how p!ss poor B*rnley were. He'd get so angry and have these aggressive outbursts and try fronting up to people but you could tell he was a soft tw@t really, he'd have tears in his too. Everyone felt a bit sorry for him. I did any way. Wonder what became of him. BRFC:ThePeoplesChampions

Oh dear.
BRFC The Peoples Chimp, You can't really comment on support after Tuesday massive 302 you took to Ipswich you insignificant shell suit wearing Shadsworth turd.
Now then, one of your lot was quoting Rovers' 1974 Division 3 average last night :-)

Have you any inkling how fcuking desperate you sound?

Anyway, Ipswich is quite a trek and it was a mid-week game 4 weeks before Christmas but i went to Huddersfield (2,500 mid-week); Barnsley, (1,200 last Christmas); Sheffield Wednesday (same again) and of course Turd Morgue (Sold Out and out supported your lot again).Been away yourself this season or even to the odd game at home? You part of the throng 10k tuther night? OK, most of my away games were last season but i'm not going into my personal arrangements with a sad tw@t like you... and i digress.

Wrap your head around these stats bed wetter:

2000's:
1)Blackburn: 24.019
2)Bolton: 23.335
3)Burnley: 14.189
4)Preston: 13.936
5)Blackpool: 6.748

1990's:
1)Blackburn: 20.337
2)Bolton: 13.752
3)Burnley: 10.553
4)Preston: 8.509
5)Blackpool: 4.940

1980's:
1)Blackburn: 9.003
2)Bolton: 6.336
3)Burnley: 5.940
4)Preston: 5.826
5)Blackpool: 4.276

1970's:
1)Bolton: 16.416
2)Burnley 14.414
3)Blackpool: 10.803
4)Preston: 10.658
5)Blackburn: 10.038

1960's:
1)Burnley: 20.206
2)Blackpool: 17.251
3)Blackburn: 15.380
4)Bolton: 14.756
5)Preston: 14.629

1950's:
1)Bolton: 29.249
2)Preston: 26.947
3)Burnley: 25.549
4)Blackburn: 25.090
5)Blackpool: 23.868

It is worth noting that in the 1950's, Bolton Wanderers spent ten seasons in Divsion 1; Blackburn Rovers spent eight seasons in Division 2 and just two seasons in Division 1. The Bolton cunurbation population is more than twice the size of Blackburn's. Blackpool are the least supported team in the 1950's despite spending the entire decade in Division 1, appeaering in two FA Cup Finals, winning one FA Cup Final and having one of the English games greatest legends playing for them, Stanley Mathews.

Burnley spent the enire 1960's in Division 1 and won the the Championship in 1960; Blackburn Rovers spent four seasons in Division 2 and six season in Division 1. Again, the Burnley conurbation population is bigger than Blackburn's.

In the 1970's, Bolton spent two seasons in Division 3, eight seasons in Division 2 and two seasons in Division 1; Blackburn Rovers spent five seasons in Division 3 and five seasons in Division 2.

I always thought that Burnley were the smallest town club in Lancashire but that dubious honour is shared by the othet two Lancashire rivals Preston North End and Blackpool (Bolton Wanderers being derby orphans but you never know, if they ask Wigan Athletic nicely they might might want to hate them enough); Preston supporters have the temerity to call Rovers supporters "Plastics" too, even more impudent when one considers that in the 1980's, Preston North End had a widely despised plastic pitch installed.

Oh dear.
Hello chicken brain still living in past eh. Last season, last season. Oh dear me what about 1974 average gate at Bollywood about 7000. You'll be there again and lower soon. Your crowds are dropping faster Dangling Dick's pants
Wow....1974. That is fcuking sad and desperate. (BTW: Rovers were in Division 3 at the time).

Here are some painful FACTS:

There are only 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

It is worth bearing in mind the following when comparing the statistics between Blackburn Rovers' and Burnley's support.

Blackburn Rovers' post-war decline began at the end of the 1965-1966 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Burnley's post-war decline began at the end of the 1975-76 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Blackburn Rovers had only known 8 years in Division 1 - with 14 years in Division 2 and 4 years in Division 3: They had only enjoyed 8 years of top flight football.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Burnley had enjoyed 24 years in Division 1 - and just 2 years in DiviSIon 2: They had enjoyed 24 years of top flight football.

The above makes a mockery of Burnley supporters assertions that they are a better supported club whose are more loyal; whilst Rovers supporters are fickle.

There are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

Burnley fans generally present themselves as a braying troupe of delusional zealots.

They edit their own history and perpetuate the myth that Burnley are a "big football club", they do this because they have too much emotional investment in the lie and are too insolent to deal with reality.

Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd.

Thinking about them makes my brain feel dirty, they lower the bar of intelligent football discourse every time they open their beer and fag stinking mouths. They tunnel under and then occupy the moral high ground; immune to the evidence, immune to facts, their beliefs are provable falsehoods that they do not have the courage to confront.

Most have demonstrated that they have no knowledge of anything at all, particularly Blackburn Rovers and football - but they do have one talent - the ability to ignore what they dare not acknowledge - that Blackburn Rovers are a bigger, better supported and more successful football club than Burnley.

Why is it that in the information age it is almost impossible to get information into people's brains?

One of the common Blackburn baiting totems by the Burnley myth making machine is that Burnley are a better supported club than Blackburn Rovers: This is a package of b0ll0cks.

Turf Moor = TURD MORGUE
In the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article we are informed:

"Post-WWI crowds in the stadium averaged in the 30,000–40,000 range with the record attendance set in 1924 against Huddersfield Town in a FA Cup match when 54,755 attended the match."

Besides being badly written with no sources to back it up, this is of course complete nonsense.

The author also does not specify what period "post-WWI" covers so I have given the benefit of the doubt to the author and calculated Turf Moor's average attendance for the 10 years between 1918-1928. Turf Moor's average attendance was: 19.117.

What we have here is just another example of (1) Burnley myth making and (2) how completely unreliable Wikipedia is.

I have attempted to correct the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article and have provided sources to back my alteration up and have also attempted to engage in discussion in order to establish my credibility but my correct alteration has simply been reverted back to the false information and my attempts at 'discussion' have been ignored or met with abuse.

Wikipedia is not interested in the search for truth.

It is also worth considering the following narrative when engaging with Burnley Trolls:

Burnley fans boo their team - it's passion, they cannot bare to see pampared mediocre footballers wearing their clubs colours without pride; Rovers' fans boo - it's because they're fickle.

Burnley fans fail to vocally support their team - it's an anxious silelence; Rovers' fans fail to vocally support their team - it's because they lack passion.

Burnley fans leave Turf Moor 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - it's because the parking facilities are notoriously bad at Turf Moor; Rovers fans leave 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - they're sneered at.

Burnley fans stay away in their thousands when Burnley are relegated from the Premier League - nothing is said; Ewood Park's attendance drops when Rovers are relegated from the Premier League - it's because Rovers' fans think they're too good to watch football in a lower division.

Burnley's attendances improve when Burnley win - they're genuine fans; Rovers' attendances improve when Rovers win - they're 'plastic fans'.

Indeed, the Burnley accusation of fickle Rovers fans is an odd one; when did this 'glory hunting' support begin?

1987 when Rovers won the Full Members Cup?
1987 when Jack Walker started investing money into the club?
1987 when Rovers signed Steve Archibald from Barcelona on loan?
1988 when Rovers signed Osvaldo Ardiles?
1988 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1989 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1990 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1991 when Jack Walker bought the club?
1991 when Kenny Dalglish became the manager of the club?
1992 when Rovers won promotion to the Premier League?
1992 when Rovers signed Alan Shearer for a British transfer record?
1994 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers won the Premier League?
1998 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2002 when Rovers won the League Cup?
2002 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2003 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2006 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the Intertoto Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc?

Opinions seem to differ. That Burnley fans are jealous is obvious.

There are many enduring myths in football, that Burnley are a bigger and better supported club than Blackburn Rovers is but one of them.

However, I believe in facts.

Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. It may come as a shock to some, but there have only been 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers - the last time being just over a quarter of a century ago in the 1980's, 30 years to be precise - 1983.

Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances.

It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000.

The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000.

I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour.

Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s.

The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below).

Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below.

Blackburn Rovers
1958 2 22.708
1958 2 23.091
1958 2 26.928

Burnley
1958 1 22.251
1957 1 22.493
1955 1 25.094

The 1960’s.
Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater.

In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th.
Blackburn Rovers
1960 1 27.299

Burnley
1960 1 26.978

Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's.
Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed.

Rovers' decline began in 1966.

Burnley's decline began in 1977.

1970’s/1980’s
Blackburn Rovers
1975 3 12.651
1974 3 7.432
1973 3 9.214
1972 3 8.256

Burnley
1985 3 4.177
1984 3 6.625
1982 3 6.936
1981 3 6.469

At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.
2000’s
Blackburn Rovers
2001 2 20.740

Burnley
2001 2 16.442

Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.

2010’s
Blackburn Rovers
2010 1 25.428

Burnley
2010 1 20.654

At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it.

Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers
2013 2 15.182

Burnley
2013 2 12.928

In summary:
Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years.

In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division.

In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In 15 years out of the 40 yearswhen the two clubs have been in the same Division - Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

In total, there are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In total, there are 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

64 years of the 92 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendanced than Burnley came when Burnley were in a lower Division.

17 years of the 32 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers came when Blackburn Rovers were in a lower Division.

Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley when in a lower Division than Burnley - 1955, 1957, 1958.

Burnley have never averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers when in a lower Division than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers were last Champions of England in 1995 and everaged higher attendances than Burnley during their title winning season - Burnley were in a lower Division.

Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and Blackburn Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season -Blackburn Rovers were in the same Division.

Burnley’s support is sh!t and they know it is, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to create such a grubby little myth in the first place.

WOW, thanks for those compelling stats stato.

Do you actually have a girlfriend? Do you still live at home with yer mum?

When you're not filling your day with underwhelming facts do you visit the dust museum by any chance.

My advice to you is buy a dictionary and look up the words "WOMEN" and "LAGER", you autistic no dad.
:-)

Really annoying, aren't they, those facts?

First on almost every Rovers article, a word count running into the thousands - and the effort you put into your posts as well. Do you spray spittle on to your PC monitor as you hammer out your responses? You have the temerity to question the mental health and the sexual prowess of me? You fcuking sad gimp. I imagine you to be a bedsit dweller and a bit of a failure, tbh. I bet you have dirty finger nails and when the girls look at you they think, "Cheese c0ck." Wet your bed as a boy, i'll bet.

You remind me of a lad i used to work with from B*rnley, around the early 90's it was. He used to get really angry about Uncle Jack etc and how p!ss poor B*rnley were. He'd get so angry and have these aggressive outbursts and try fronting up to people but you could tell he was a soft tw@t really, he'd have tears in his too. Everyone felt a bit sorry for him. I did any way.

Wonder what became of him.
Ha ha, that's a proper lash. You may not well be aware due to your interlectual inferiority but I have just OWNED YOU!

It's too easy to wind up angry no dads like you. You even had to have another lash after this one such is your infantile retarded rage.

You just keep living on the back of your cannabis enduced flash backs from the good old days!!! Ha ha ha ha ha

Last season, last season. Oh dear me what about 1974 average gate at Bollywood about 7000. You'll be there again and lower soon. Your crowds are dropping faster Dangling Dick's pants[/p][/quote]Wow....1974. That is fcuking sad and desperate. (BTW: Rovers were in Division 3 at the time). Here are some painful FACTS: There are only 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers. It is worth bearing in mind the following when comparing the statistics between Blackburn Rovers' and Burnley's support. Blackburn Rovers' post-war decline began at the end of the 1965-1966 season when they were relegated from Division 1. Burnley's post-war decline began at the end of the 1975-76 season when they were relegated from Division 1. Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Blackburn Rovers had only known 8 years in Division 1 - with 14 years in Division 2 and 4 years in Division 3: They had only enjoyed 8 years of top flight football. Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Burnley had enjoyed 24 years in Division 1 - and just 2 years in DiviSIon 2: They had enjoyed 24 years of top flight football. The above makes a mockery of Burnley supporters assertions that they are a better supported club whose are more loyal; whilst Rovers supporters are fickle. There are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley. Burnley fans generally present themselves as a braying troupe of delusional zealots. They edit their own history and perpetuate the myth that Burnley are a "big football club", they do this because they have too much emotional investment in the lie and are too insolent to deal with reality. Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd. Thinking about them makes my brain feel dirty, they lower the bar of intelligent football discourse every time they open their beer and fag stinking mouths. They tunnel under and then occupy the moral high ground; immune to the evidence, immune to facts, their beliefs are provable falsehoods that they do not have the courage to confront. Most have demonstrated that they have no knowledge of anything at all, particularly Blackburn Rovers and football - but they do have one talent - the ability to ignore what they dare not acknowledge - that Blackburn Rovers are a bigger, better supported and more successful football club than Burnley. Why is it that in the information age it is almost impossible to get information into people's brains? One of the common Blackburn baiting totems by the Burnley myth making machine is that Burnley are a better supported club than Blackburn Rovers: This is a package of b0ll0cks. Turf Moor = TURD MORGUE In the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article we are informed: "Post-WWI crowds in the stadium averaged in the 30,000–40,000 range with the record attendance set in 1924 against Huddersfield Town in a FA Cup match when 54,755 attended the match." Besides being badly written with no sources to back it up, this is of course complete nonsense. The author also does not specify what period "post-WWI" covers so I have given the benefit of the doubt to the author and calculated Turf Moor's average attendance for the 10 years between 1918-1928.

Oh dear.
BRFC The Peoples Chimp, You can't really comment on support after Tuesday massive 302 you took to Ipswich you insignificant shell suit wearing Shadsworth turd.
Now then, one of your lot was quoting Rovers' 1974 Division 3 average last night :-)

Have you any inkling how fcuking desperate you sound?

Anyway, Ipswich is quite a trek and it was a mid-week game 4 weeks before Christmas but i went to Huddersfield (2,500 mid-week); Barnsley, (1,200 last Christmas); Sheffield Wednesday (same again) and of course Turd Morgue (Sold Out and out supported your lot again).Been away yourself this season or even to the odd game at home? You part of the throng 10k tuther night? OK, most of my away games were last season but i'm not going into my personal arrangements with a sad tw@t like you... and i digress.

Wrap your head around these stats bed wetter:

2000's:
1)Blackburn: 24.019
2)Bolton: 23.335
3)Burnley: 14.189
4)Preston: 13.936
5)Blackpool: 6.748

1990's:
1)Blackburn: 20.337
2)Bolton: 13.752
3)Burnley: 10.553
4)Preston: 8.509
5)Blackpool: 4.940

1980's:
1)Blackburn: 9.003
2)Bolton: 6.336
3)Burnley: 5.940
4)Preston: 5.826
5)Blackpool: 4.276

1970's:
1)Bolton: 16.416
2)Burnley 14.414
3)Blackpool: 10.803
4)Preston: 10.658
5)Blackburn: 10.038

1960's:
1)Burnley: 20.206
2)Blackpool: 17.251
3)Blackburn: 15.380
4)Bolton: 14.756
5)Preston: 14.629

1950's:
1)Bolton: 29.249
2)Preston: 26.947
3)Burnley: 25.549
4)Blackburn: 25.090
5)Blackpool: 23.868

It is worth noting that in the 1950's, Bolton Wanderers spent ten seasons in Divsion 1; Blackburn Rovers spent eight seasons in Division 2 and just two seasons in Division 1. The Bolton cunurbation population is more than twice the size of Blackburn's. Blackpool are the least supported team in the 1950's despite spending the entire decade in Division 1, appeaering in two FA Cup Finals, winning one FA Cup Final and having one of the English games greatest legends playing for them, Stanley Mathews.

Burnley spent the enire 1960's in Division 1 and won the the Championship in 1960; Blackburn Rovers spent four seasons in Division 2 and six season in Division 1. Again, the Burnley conurbation population is bigger than Blackburn's.

In the 1970's, Bolton spent two seasons in Division 3, eight seasons in Division 2 and two seasons in Division 1; Blackburn Rovers spent five seasons in Division 3 and five seasons in Division 2.

I always thought that Burnley were the smallest town club in Lancashire but that dubious honour is shared by the othet two Lancashire rivals Preston North End and Blackpool (Bolton Wanderers being derby orphans but you never know, if they ask Wigan Athletic nicely they might might want to hate them enough); Preston supporters have the temerity to call Rovers supporters "Plastics" too, even more impudent when one considers that in the 1980's, Preston North End had a widely despised plastic pitch installed.

Oh dear.
Hello chicken brain still living in past eh. Last season, last season. Oh dear me what about 1974 average gate at Bollywood about 7000. You'll be there again and lower soon. Your crowds are dropping faster Dangling Dick's pants
Wow....1974. That is fcuking sad and desperate. (BTW: Rovers were in Division 3 at the time).

Here are some painful FACTS:

There are only 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

It is worth bearing in mind the following when comparing the statistics between Blackburn Rovers' and Burnley's support.

Blackburn Rovers' post-war decline began at the end of the 1965-1966 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Burnley's post-war decline began at the end of the 1975-76 season when they were relegated from Division 1.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Blackburn Rovers had only known 8 years in Division 1 - with 14 years in Division 2 and 4 years in Division 3: They had only enjoyed 8 years of top flight football.

Between 1950 and 1976, a total of 26 years, Burnley had enjoyed 24 years in Division 1 - and just 2 years in DiviSIon 2: They had enjoyed 24 years of top flight football.

The above makes a mockery of Burnley supporters assertions that they are a better supported club whose are more loyal; whilst Rovers supporters are fickle.

There are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

Burnley fans generally present themselves as a braying troupe of delusional zealots.

They edit their own history and perpetuate the myth that Burnley are a "big football club", they do this because they have too much emotional investment in the lie and are too insolent to deal with reality.

Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd.

Thinking about them makes my brain feel dirty, they lower the bar of intelligent football discourse every time they open their beer and fag stinking mouths. They tunnel under and then occupy the moral high ground; immune to the evidence, immune to facts, their beliefs are provable falsehoods that they do not have the courage to confront.

Most have demonstrated that they have no knowledge of anything at all, particularly Blackburn Rovers and football - but they do have one talent - the ability to ignore what they dare not acknowledge - that Blackburn Rovers are a bigger, better supported and more successful football club than Burnley.

Why is it that in the information age it is almost impossible to get information into people's brains?

One of the common Blackburn baiting totems by the Burnley myth making machine is that Burnley are a better supported club than Blackburn Rovers: This is a package of b0ll0cks.

Turf Moor = TURD MORGUE
In the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article we are informed:

"Post-WWI crowds in the stadium averaged in the 30,000–40,000 range with the record attendance set in 1924 against Huddersfield Town in a FA Cup match when 54,755 attended the match."

Besides being badly written with no sources to back it up, this is of course complete nonsense.

The author also does not specify what period "post-WWI" covers so I have given the benefit of the doubt to the author and calculated Turf Moor's average attendance for the 10 years between 1918-1928. Turf Moor's average attendance was: 19.117.

What we have here is just another example of (1) Burnley myth making and (2) how completely unreliable Wikipedia is.

I have attempted to correct the 'Stadium' section of the Burnley F.C. Wikipedia article and have provided sources to back my alteration up and have also attempted to engage in discussion in order to establish my credibility but my correct alteration has simply been reverted back to the false information and my attempts at 'discussion' have been ignored or met with abuse.

Wikipedia is not interested in the search for truth.

It is also worth considering the following narrative when engaging with Burnley Trolls:

Burnley fans boo their team - it's passion, they cannot bare to see pampared mediocre footballers wearing their clubs colours without pride; Rovers' fans boo - it's because they're fickle.

Burnley fans fail to vocally support their team - it's an anxious silelence; Rovers' fans fail to vocally support their team - it's because they lack passion.

Burnley fans leave Turf Moor 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - it's because the parking facilities are notoriously bad at Turf Moor; Rovers fans leave 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - they're sneered at.

Burnley fans stay away in their thousands when Burnley are relegated from the Premier League - nothing is said; Ewood Park's attendance drops when Rovers are relegated from the Premier League - it's because Rovers' fans think they're too good to watch football in a lower division.

Burnley's attendances improve when Burnley win - they're genuine fans; Rovers' attendances improve when Rovers win - they're 'plastic fans'.

Indeed, the Burnley accusation of fickle Rovers fans is an odd one; when did this 'glory hunting' support begin?

1987 when Rovers won the Full Members Cup?
1987 when Jack Walker started investing money into the club?
1987 when Rovers signed Steve Archibald from Barcelona on loan?
1988 when Rovers signed Osvaldo Ardiles?
1988 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1989 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1990 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's?
1991 when Jack Walker bought the club?
1991 when Kenny Dalglish became the manager of the club?
1992 when Rovers won promotion to the Premier League?
1992 when Rovers signed Alan Shearer for a British transfer record?
1994 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League?
1995 when Rovers won the Premier League?
1998 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2002 when Rovers won the League Cup?
2002 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2003 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2006 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the Intertoto Cup?
2007 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup?
Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc?

Opinions seem to differ. That Burnley fans are jealous is obvious.

There are many enduring myths in football, that Burnley are a bigger and better supported club than Blackburn Rovers is but one of them.

However, I believe in facts.

Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. It may come as a shock to some, but there have only been 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers - the last time being just over a quarter of a century ago in the 1980's, 30 years to be precise - 1983.

Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances.

It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000.

The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000.

I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour.

Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s.

The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below).

Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below.

Blackburn Rovers
1958 2 22.708
1958 2 23.091
1958 2 26.928

Burnley
1958 1 22.251
1957 1 22.493
1955 1 25.094

The 1960’s.
Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater.

In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th.
Blackburn Rovers
1960 1 27.299

Burnley
1960 1 26.978

Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's.
Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed.

Rovers' decline began in 1966.

Burnley's decline began in 1977.

1970’s/1980’s
Blackburn Rovers
1975 3 12.651
1974 3 7.432
1973 3 9.214
1972 3 8.256

Burnley
1985 3 4.177
1984 3 6.625
1982 3 6.936
1981 3 6.469

At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.
2000’s
Blackburn Rovers
2001 2 20.740

Burnley
2001 2 16.442

Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch.

2010’s
Blackburn Rovers
2010 1 25.428

Burnley
2010 1 20.654

At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship.

This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it.

Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers
2013 2 15.182

Burnley
2013 2 12.928

In summary:
Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years.

In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division.

In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In 15 years out of the 40 yearswhen the two clubs have been in the same Division - Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

In total, there are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley.

In total, there are 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers.

64 years of the 92 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendanced than Burnley came when Burnley were in a lower Division.

17 years of the 32 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers came when Blackburn Rovers were in a lower Division.

Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley when in a lower Division than Burnley - 1955, 1957, 1958.

Burnley have never averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers when in a lower Division than Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn Rovers were last Champions of England in 1995 and everaged higher attendances than Burnley during their title winning season - Burnley were in a lower Division.

Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and Blackburn Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season -Blackburn Rovers were in the same Division.

Burnley’s support is sh!t and they know it is, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to create such a grubby little myth in the first place.

WOW, thanks for those compelling stats stato.

Do you actually have a girlfriend? Do you still live at home with yer mum?

When you're not filling your day with underwhelming facts do you visit the dust museum by any chance.

My advice to you is buy a dictionary and look up the words "WOMEN" and "LAGER", you autistic no dad.
:-)

Really annoying, aren't they, those facts?

First on almost every Rovers article, a word count running into the thousands - and the effort you put into your posts as well. Do you spray spittle on to your PC monitor as you hammer out your responses? You have the temerity to question the mental health and the sexual prowess of me? You fcuking sad gimp. I imagine you to be a bedsit dweller and a bit of a failure, tbh. I bet you have dirty finger nails and when the girls look at you they think, "Cheese c0ck." Wet your bed as a boy, i'll bet.

You remind me of a lad i used to work with from B*rnley, around the early 90's it was. He used to get really angry about Uncle Jack etc and how p!ss poor B*rnley were. He'd get so angry and have these aggressive outbursts and try fronting up to people but you could tell he was a soft tw@t really, he'd have tears in his too. Everyone felt a bit sorry for him. I did any way.

Wonder what became of him.
Ha ha, that's a proper lash. You may not well be aware due to your interlectual inferiority but I have just OWNED YOU!

It's too easy to wind up angry no dads like you. You even had to have another lash after this one such is your infantile retarded rage.

You just keep living on the back of your cannabis enduced flash backs from the good old days!!! Ha ha ha ha ha
That was a really poor attempt at banter.

You're out of your depth and KDG aka FakeVila kicks your poor c.unts all over this message board every time she posts. I genuinely feel a bit sorry for you and wluv etc etc etc.

Go on... say something about Shad.... sad tw@t.

Wikipedia is not interested in the search for truth. It is also worth considering the following narrative when engaging with Burnley Trolls: Burnley fans boo their team - it's passion, they cannot bare to see pampared mediocre footballers wearing their clubs colours without pride; Rovers' fans boo - it's because they're fickle. Burnley fans fail to vocally support their team - it's an anxious silelence; Rovers' fans fail to vocally support their team - it's because they lack passion. Burnley fans leave Turf Moor 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - it's because the parking facilities are notoriously bad at Turf Moor; Rovers fans leave 5-10 minutes before the end of a game - they're sneered at. Burnley fans stay away in their thousands when Burnley are relegated from the Premier League - nothing is said; Ewood Park's attendance drops when Rovers are relegated from the Premier League - it's because Rovers' fans think they're too good to watch football in a lower division. Burnley's attendances improve when Burnley win - they're genuine fans; Rovers' attendances improve when Rovers win - they're 'plastic fans'. Indeed, the Burnley accusation of fickle Rovers fans is an odd one; when did this 'glory hunting' support begin? 1987 when Rovers won the Full Members Cup? 1987 when Jack Walker started investing money into the club? 1987 when Rovers signed Steve Archibald from Barcelona on loan? 1988 when Rovers signed Osvaldo Ardiles? 1988 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's? 1989 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's? 1990 when Rovers reached the Division 2 Play-Off's? 1991 when Jack Walker bought the club? 1991 when Kenny Dalglish became the manager of the club? 1992 when Rovers won promotion to the Premier League? 1992 when Rovers signed Alan Shearer for a British transfer record? 1994 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League? 1995 when Rovers qualified for the Champions League? 1995 when Rovers won the Premier League? 1998 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup? 2002 when Rovers won the League Cup? 2002 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup? 2003 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup? 2006 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup? 2007 when Rovers qualified for the Intertoto Cup? 2007 when Rovers qualified for the UEFA Cup? Or at any other time when Rovers have signed the likes of Howard Kendal, Duncan McKenzie, Frank Stapleton, Kevin Moran, David Speedie, Andy Cole, Craig Bellamy etc etc etc? Opinions seem to differ. That Burnley fans are jealous is obvious. There are many enduring myths in football, that Burnley are a bigger and better supported club than Blackburn Rovers is but one of them. However, I believe in facts. Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. It may come as a shock to some, but there have only been 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers - the last time being just over a quarter of a century ago in the 1980's, 30 years to be precise - 1983. Below are the average attendances of both Blackburn Rovers and Burnley when they have either (a) been in the same league together or (b) when they have been in the same league at different times or (c) when Blackburn Rovers have been in a lower league but have still managed to average higher attendances. It is also worth highlighting the fact that the Blackburn conurbation consists of Darwen, Bellmont and Guide; population approximately: 147,000. The Burnley conurbation consists of Read, Simonstone, Paddiham, Brierfield, Briercliffe, Worsthorne, Nelson and Colne; population approximately: 150,000. I am not talking about ‘catchment areas’ either; Accrington, Oswaldtwistle, Rishton, Great Harwood, Whalley, Clitheroe, Sabden, Clayton Le Moors are all between Blackburn and Burnley and not part of their ‘urban conurbations’ with both clubs pulling in support from all of these towns. With the exception of Sabden, I will admit that support in these cathcment towns is about 60-40 in Rovers favour. Let us now examine the evidence by firstly turning to the at the 1950’s. The 1950's were a very thin period for Blackburn Rovers. 1949-1959 were spent in Division 2 (1966-1992 spent in Division's 2 and 3) while Burnley spent the 1950's in Division 1 winning the Division 1 Championship in 1960 - in 1960 Rovers still managed to average bigger attendances than Burnley, (see below). Still, Rovers attendance figures during the 1950's compared favourably with Burnley, as can be seen below. Blackburn Rovers 1958 2 22.708 1958 2 23.091 1958 2 26.928 Burnley 1958 1 22.251 1957 1 22.493 1955 1 25.094 The 1960’s. Burnley's fortunes relative to Rovers' throughout the 1950's, 1960's and the 1970's were far greater. In 1960 Burnley won the Division 1 Championship and Rovers finished 17th. Blackburn Rovers 1960 1 27.299 Burnley 1960 1 26.978 Both clubs slowly went into decline during the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. Rovers’ fortunes then slowly began to improve as the 1980's progressed. Rovers' decline began in 1966. Burnley's decline began in 1977. 1970’s/1980’s Blackburn Rovers 1975 3 12.651 1974 3 7.432 1973 3 9.214 1972 3 8.256 Burnley 1985 3 4.177 1984 3 6.625 1982 3 6.936 1981 3 6.469 At the end of the 1997-1998 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship. This allowed Rovers to renew their rivalry with Burnley with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch. 2000’s Blackburn Rovers 2001 2 20.740 Burnley 2001 2 16.442 Burnley finally gained promotion to Division one, now renamed The Premier League. This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Rovers with two memorable victories for Rovers - on and off the pitch. 2010’s Blackburn Rovers 2010 1 25.428 Burnley 2010 1 20.654 At the end of the 2011-2012 season, Rovers were relegated to Division 1, now renamed The Championship. This allowed them to renew their rivalry with Burnley resulting in two draws on the pitch but an undoubted victory off it. Despite the worst owners in the clubs history; the worst board of directors in the clubs history; a string of managers widely regarded as the worst in the clubs history; relegation from the Premier League; fighting against a second successive relegation into the third level of English football; an open fan boycott of home games and Burnley finishing above Rovers for the first time in over three decades, Burnley could still not muster more support to their cause than Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn Rovers 2013 2 15.182 Burnley 2013 2 12.928 In summary: Statistics go back to 1889, 124 years. In total, there are only 40 years out of the 124 years when Blackburn Rovers and Burnley have been in the same Division. In 25 years out of the 40 years when the two clubs have been in the same Division - Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley. In 15 years out of the 40 yearswhen the two clubs have been in the same Division - Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers. In total, there are 92 years out of 124 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley. In total, there are 32 years out of 124 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers. 64 years of the 92 years when Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendanced than Burnley came when Burnley were in a lower Division. 17 years of the 32 years when Burnley have averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers came when Blackburn Rovers were in a lower Division. Blackburn Rovers have averaged higher attendances than Burnley when in a lower Division than Burnley - 1955, 1957, 1958. Burnley have never averaged higher attendances than Blackburn Rovers when in a lower Division than Blackburn Rovers. Blackburn Rovers were last Champions of England in 1995 and everaged higher attendances than Burnley during their title winning season - Burnley were in a lower Division. Burnley were last Champions of England in 1960 and Blackburn Rovers still averaged higher attendances than Burnley during Burnley's title winning season -Blackburn Rovers were in the same Division. Burnley’s support is sh!t and they know it is, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to create such a grubby little myth in the first place.

When you're not filling your day with underwhelming facts do you visit the dust museum by any chance. My advice to you is buy a dictionary and look up the words "WOMEN" and "LAGER", you autistic no dad.[/p][/quote]:-) Really annoying, aren't they, those facts? First on almost every Rovers article, a word count running into the thousands - and the effort you put into your posts as well. Do you spray spittle on to your PC monitor as you hammer out your responses? You have the temerity to question the mental health and the sexual prowess of me? You fcuking sad gimp. I imagine you to be a bedsit dweller and a bit of a failure, tbh. I bet you have dirty finger nails and when the girls look at you they think, "Cheese c0ck." Wet your bed as a boy, i'll bet. You remind me of a lad i used to work with from B*rnley, around the early 90's it was. He used to get really angry about Uncle Jack etc and how p!ss poor B*rnley were. He'd get so angry and have these aggressive outbursts and try fronting up to people but you could tell he was a soft tw@t really, he'd have tears in his too. Everyone felt a bit sorry for him. I did any way. Wonder what became of him.[/p][/quote]Ha ha, that's a proper lash. You may not well be aware due to your interlectual inferiority but I have just OWNED YOU! It's too easy to wind up angry no dads like you. You even had to have another lash after this one such is your infantile retarded rage. You just keep living on the back of your cannabis enduced flash backs from the good old days!!! Ha ha ha ha ha[/p][/quote]That was a really poor attempt at banter. You're out of your depth and KDG aka FakeVila kicks your poor c.unts all over this message board every time she posts. I genuinely feel a bit sorry for you and wluv etc etc etc. Go on... say something about Shad.... sad tw@t. BRFC:ThePeoplesChampions

Oh dear.
BRFC The Peoples Chimp, You can't really comment on support after Tuesday massive 302 you took to Ipswich you insignificant shell suit wearing Shadsworth turd.
Now then, one of your lot was quoting Rovers' 1974 Division 3 average last night :-)

Have you any inkling how fcuking desperate you sound?

Anyway, Ipswich is quite a trek and it was a mid-week game 4 weeks before Christmas but i went to Huddersfield (2,500 mid-week); Barnsley, (1,200 last Christmas); Sheffield Wednesday (same again) and of course Turd Morgue (Sold Out and out supported your lot again).Been away yourself this season or even to the odd game at home? You part of the throng 10k tuther night? OK, most of my away games were last season but i'm not going into my personal arrangements with a sad tw@t like you... and i digress.

Wrap your head around these stats bed wetter:

2000's:
1)Blackburn: 24.019
2)Bolton: 23.335
3)Burnley: 14.189
4)Preston: 13.936
5)Blackpool: 6.748

1990's:
1)Blackburn: 20.337
2)Bolton: 13.752
3)Burnley: 10.553
4)Preston: 8.509
5)Blackpool: 4.940

1980's:
1)Blackburn: 9.003
2)Bolton: 6.336
3)Burnley: 5.940
4)Preston: 5.826
5)Blackpool: 4.276

1970's:
1)Bolton: 16.416
2)Burnley 14.414
3)Blackpool: 10.803
4)Preston: 10.658
5)Blackburn: 10.038

1960's:
1)Burnley: 20.206
2)Blackpool: 17.251
3)Blackburn: 15.380
4)Bolton: 14.756
5)Preston: 14.629

1950's:
1)Bolton: 29.249
2)Preston: 26.947
3)Burnley: 25.549
4)Blackburn: 25.090
5)Blackpool: 23.868

It is worth noting that in the 1950's, Bolton Wanderers spent ten seasons in Divsion 1; Blackburn Rovers spent eight seasons in Division 2 and just two seasons in Division 1. The Bolton cunurbation population is more than twice the size of Blackburn's. Blackpool are the least supported team in the 1950's despite spending the entire decade in Division 1, appeaering in two FA Cup Finals, winning one FA Cup Final and having one of the English games greatest legends playing for them, Stanley Mathews.

Burnley spent the enire 1960's in Division 1 and won the the Championship in 1960; Blackburn Rovers spent four seasons in Division 2 and six season in Division 1. Again, the Burnley conurbation population is bigger than Blackburn's.

In the 1970's, Bolton spent two seasons in Division 3, eight seasons in Division 2 and two seasons in Division 1; Blackburn Rovers spent five seasons in Division 3 and five seasons in Division 2.

I always thought that Burnley were the smallest town club in Lancashire but that dubious honour is shared by the othet two Lancashire rivals Preston North End and Blackpool (Bolton Wanderers being derby orphans but you never know, if they ask Wigan Athletic nicely they might might want to hate them enough); Preston supporters have the temerity to call Rovers supporters "Plastics" too, even more impudent when one considers that in the 1980's, Preston North End had a widely despised plastic pitch installed.

You've just been OWNED again, you must love the punishment, I'll take you on all day mungo. You have to respond and have a lash at everything. That's why it's so easy! Almost as easy as the inappropriate thoughts you often have about your close female relatives/pets.

And just in case you're wondering, nobody gives a fcuk about what you have to rant about, other than your dirty stalker Mongoloid Dangle.

You're just another deluded b@statd crying inside. Enjoy your weekend sat there in your drool / urine soaked underpants. Only 6 more hours to go for the ten minute freeview on bangbabes.

Wrap your head around these stats bed wetter: 2000's: 1)Blackburn: 24.019 2)Bolton: 23.335 3)Burnley: 14.189 4)Preston: 13.936 5)Blackpool: 6.748 1990's: 1)Blackburn: 20.337 2)Bolton: 13.752 3)Burnley: 10.553 4)Preston: 8.509 5)Blackpool: 4.940 1980's: 1)Blackburn: 9.003 2)Bolton: 6.336 3)Burnley: 5.940 4)Preston: 5.826 5)Blackpool: 4.276 1970's: 1)Bolton: 16.416 2)Burnley 14.414 3)Blackpool: 10.803 4)Preston: 10.658 5)Blackburn: 10.038 1960's: 1)Burnley: 20.206 2)Blackpool: 17.251 3)Blackburn: 15.380 4)Bolton: 14.756 5)Preston: 14.629 1950's: 1)Bolton: 29.249 2)Preston: 26.947 3)Burnley: 25.549 4)Blackburn: 25.090 5)Blackpool: 23.868 It is worth noting that in the 1950's, Bolton Wanderers spent ten seasons in Divsion 1; Blackburn Rovers spent eight seasons in Division 2 and just two seasons in Division 1. The Bolton cunurbation population is more than twice the size of Blackburn's. Blackpool are the least supported team in the 1950's despite spending the entire decade in Division 1, appeaering in two FA Cup Finals, winning one FA Cup Final and having one of the English games greatest legends playing for them, Stanley Mathews. Burnley spent the enire 1960's in Division 1 and won the the Championship in 1960; Blackburn Rovers spent four seasons in Division 2 and six season in Division 1. Again, the Burnley conurbation population is bigger than Blackburn's. In the 1970's, Bolton spent two seasons in Division 3, eight seasons in Division 2 and two seasons in Division 1; Blackburn Rovers spent five seasons in Division 3 and five seasons in Division 2. I always thought that Burnley were the smallest town club in Lancashire but that dubious honour is shared by the othet two Lancashire rivals Preston North End and Blackpool (Bolton Wanderers being derby orphans but you never know, if they ask Wigan Athletic nicely they might might want to hate them enough); Preston supporters have the temerity to call Rovers supporters "Plastics" too, even more impudent when one considers that in the 1980's, Preston North End had a widely despised plastic pitch installed. http://ewoodpark.jim do.com/[/p][/quote]You are on course to win bore of the year again UTC from British Gibraltar.[/p][/quote]C**T of the year more like![/p][/quote]I KNOW!!!!!

Now then... let's see how far down the rabbit hole you're prepared to go this season.
You've just been OWNED again, you must love the punishment, I'll take you on all day mungo. You have to respond and have a lash at everything. That's why it's so easy! Almost as easy as the inappropriate thoughts you often have about your close female relatives/pets.

Hmmm...."very angry" is what I sense from that post.

I think you're a bit...y'know... CUCKOO!!! CUCKOO!!! CUCKOO!!!

Oh dear, have we broke our bullsh!t bone, again?

You are that B*rnley lad that I was talking about, aren't you, the one that used to get really angry with tears in his eyes and front up to people but who you could tell was a soft tw@t really and who we all used to feel a bit sorry for?

Like you, when people talked to him there was often a a mocking regard in their eyes, you could see the sarcasm in peoples faces, you always knew a p!ss take of the poor c.unt was just a sentence away.

"OWNED"? You sound like the adolescent internet troll that we can see that you are. That is exactly how American teenagers write in the comment sections of YouTube when they're gobbing off at one another on the internet.

I'm surprised you didn't write "PWNED" which although it looks like a typo is actually meant to mean "Perfectly Owned", which you just have been sunshine.

Wrap your head around these stats bed wetter: 2000's: 1)Blackburn: 24.019 2)Bolton: 23.335 3)Burnley: 14.189 4)Preston: 13.936 5)Blackpool: 6.748 1990's: 1)Blackburn: 20.337 2)Bolton: 13.752 3)Burnley: 10.553 4)Preston: 8.509 5)Blackpool: 4.940 1980's: 1)Blackburn: 9.003 2)Bolton: 6.336 3)Burnley: 5.940 4)Preston: 5.826 5)Blackpool: 4.276 1970's: 1)Bolton: 16.416 2)Burnley 14.414 3)Blackpool: 10.803 4)Preston: 10.658 5)Blackburn: 10.038 1960's: 1)Burnley: 20.206 2)Blackpool: 17.251 3)Blackburn: 15.380 4)Bolton: 14.756 5)Preston: 14.629 1950's: 1)Bolton: 29.249 2)Preston: 26.947 3)Burnley: 25.549 4)Blackburn: 25.090 5)Blackpool: 23.868 It is worth noting that in the 1950's, Bolton Wanderers spent ten seasons in Divsion 1; Blackburn Rovers spent eight seasons in Division 2 and just two seasons in Division 1. The Bolton cunurbation population is more than twice the size of Blackburn's. Blackpool are the least supported team in the 1950's despite spending the entire decade in Division 1, appeaering in two FA Cup Finals, winning one FA Cup Final and having one of the English games greatest legends playing for them, Stanley Mathews. Burnley spent the enire 1960's in Division 1 and won the the Championship in 1960; Blackburn Rovers spent four seasons in Division 2 and six season in Division 1. Again, the Burnley conurbation population is bigger than Blackburn's. In the 1970's, Bolton spent two seasons in Division 3, eight seasons in Division 2 and two seasons in Division 1; Blackburn Rovers spent five seasons in Division 3 and five seasons in Division 2. I always thought that Burnley were the smallest town club in Lancashire but that dubious honour is shared by the othet two Lancashire rivals Preston North End and Blackpool (Bolton Wanderers being derby orphans but you never know, if they ask Wigan Athletic nicely they might might want to hate them enough); Preston supporters have the temerity to call Rovers supporters "Plastics" too, even more impudent when one considers that in the 1980's, Preston North End had a widely despised plastic pitch installed. http://ewoodpark.jim do.com/[/p][/quote]You are on course to win bore of the year again UTC from British Gibraltar.[/p][/quote]C**T of the year more like![/p][/quote]I KNOW!!!!! The truth is often... well.... BORING. That is why people read David Icke and watch Alex Jones and prefer CONSPIRACY THEORIES because the truth is often banal. People need some kind of twist such as sad c.unts like you who prefer their own Alice in Wonderland version of events. Usually Talks Crap from British occupied Gib....accept reality....you know BRFC are and will always be the only genuine contenders in Lancashire north of Manchester and Liverpool. Preston, Bolton, Blackpool and B*rnley are also rans... even little Wigan under ex Rover Wheelan are bigger than B*rnley. One of those sad-but-true things i'm afraid. Now then... let's see how far down the rabbit hole you're prepared to go this season.[/p][/quote]You've just been OWNED again, you must love the punishment, I'll take you on all day mungo. You have to respond and have a lash at everything. That's why it's so easy! Almost as easy as the inappropriate thoughts you often have about your close female relatives/pets. And just in case you're wondering, nobody gives a fcuk about what you have to rant about, other than your dirty stalker Mongoloid Dangle. You're just another deluded b@statd crying inside. Enjoy your weekend sat there in your drool / urine soaked underpants. Only 6 more hours to go for the ten minute freeview on bangbabes.[/p][/quote]Hmmm...."very angry" is what I sense from that post. I think you're a bit...y'know... CUCKOO!!! CUCKOO!!! CUCKOO!!! Oh dear, have we broke our bullsh!t bone, again? You are that B*rnley lad that I was talking about, aren't you, the one that used to get really angry with tears in his eyes and front up to people but who you could tell was a soft tw@t really and who we all used to feel a bit sorry for? Like you, when people talked to him there was often a a mocking regard in their eyes, you could see the sarcasm in peoples faces, you always knew a p!ss take of the poor c.unt was just a sentence away. "OWNED"? You sound like the adolescent internet troll that we can see that you are. That is exactly how American teenagers write in the comment sections of YouTube when they're gobbing off at one another on the internet. I'm surprised you didn't write "PWNED" which although it looks like a typo is actually meant to mean "Perfectly Owned", which you just have been sunshine.[/p][/quote]Are you still here? I can't reply in depth cos in hanging out of the back of yer mum. And when I've finished I've got an important fishing match to listen to on radio 5. You're not mugging me off that easily

Another poor attempt at banter from the bed wetter.

I had my "issues" with KDG aka FakeVilla_MTcabinate but I have respect for her. That is because she is genuinely intelligent and very funny. Sh'es original and could be a writer, I can't pay her any higher compliment than that...

...but you, you with your multiple accounts and deeply embittered posts hint at something more sinister and disturbing. To call you a "fcuk up" would be too easy.

There's something about you, wluv et al (probably all the same individual) that is a little disconcerting. Sociopathic? Probably.

You are really really fcuking sad.

Poor effort.

If you'll forgive me for quoting myself here, "Burnley fans are proud of their stupidity, like a toddler is proud of a turd." Except from you, whoa! What a stink. Many years from now, you'll be embarrassed about the person you are today.

My guess is that you're 13-15, a Chav (a lot of your slang indicates you are of the Chav variety) and do not go to games. I imagine that you have poor life expectations but a sense of entitlement to all life's goodies and envy towards those that work hard and achieve success. In other words, a toe-rag.

I can see that you are a nobody, already the writing's on the wall for you and so very, very unhappy; which is probably why you are full of hate.

I have noticed that with "chavs" (a name i don't particularly like but i have neither the patience nor the time to go into class politics) that that is often the case; no love and no joy - just hate and high drama. And i haven't even mentioned the contempt for art, culture and intelligent discourse. I feel like i need a thought transfusion after engaging with you.

You, my little turd polisher, are an attention whore and a bit of a loser.
