Oh please, please can I answer it? Oh, great thanks! Burnley will finish higher than Rovers; bum bum! And that's because of the football medical condition know as Srevor Syndrome - that's Rovers going backwards!

I wonder why the Blackburn Apologista would think of posing this question? Bit of a mystery that, innit?

Hi Chris P Bacon, I know that this is going to shock you so please, brace yourself lad.

This is a Blackburn paper written for Blackburn folk with real North East Lancashire tagged on as a bum-wipe afterthought. If you go into Google and search for it its Blackburn Rovers, Blackburn Rovers, Blackburn Rovers. Burnley appears as item number 128 in a list of 3! On the on-line home page, you'll see a thumbnail of GB of Rovers fame as a fast-link. Can you spot one for us........

When Ms SG does her match reports, occasionally we never get one (you might have noticed), often they are two days after the game. The Rovers match report nearly always appears around two hours after the match.

That is because there is greater interest in the Rovers, Burnley are treated as a necessary nuisance, taking up valuable article space. Even Accrington Stanley articles have more readers and comments.

Mr Darener, how dare you curdle my morning coffee like that. You sir, are a rascal! However, its true that Rovers use this board more than we do. For some reason everyone flocks to Clarets Mad. As for us being a "necessary nuisance', I agree with the necessary! Oh, and how's this wreck your cornfalkes - we are the future and you don't have one. There! Go choke on that!

So which overpaid think tank claret journo came up with this "debate"? Simply look at the league and it's clear burnley will finish higher than us. Unfortunately robh20 believes burnley are the future? Don't get me wrong they have had a brilliant season but with such a small squad and over reliance on 2-3 players I think the East Midlands clubs would have something to say about that. It's a massive next few games for burnley culminating in an unwanted trip to ewood. Fact is rovers NEED another year in the championship to build a squad, and the play offs may have slipped away if we don't win tomorrow. if burnley do stumble over the line and reach the prem (sorry clarets I think you will run out of steam) then I can only foresee a yoyo season ending with the breaking up of a carefully assembled team...and if burnley dont go up this year? Probably the same, Ings, trippier etc will move to warmer climes. Truth is, without real financial clout burnley will always be a feeder club and even Sean dyche can't work miracles.

Only joking about the future to squeeze Darener in jest. I hope we both have a future. March is important for both our clubs. However, the prize Burnley can win or lose is currently greater than the win/lose option facing Rovers. In March we face Forest, Leicester, Derby, Rovers Leeds and Reading. If we do well in those games we will go up. If we don't we are playoffs.

Fair play robh20. I personally agree that I hope we are both successful, but the odds are stacked against us both with the benefactors swarming around teams like q p r, forest, reading, and possibly now Leeds. Each year it gets harder to get out of this division and then even harder when the wheels come off a season or 2 down the line (wolves, Sheffield utd, Pompey). Good luck to burnley in next 2 season defining games, for rovers lets just enjoy the rest of this season without pressure and do our best keep hold of Rhodes for next year.

if or should i say when rovers lose to Reading they will be 10 points off the play offs with just 15 games to go. Season over.

Rovers are 17 points behind Burnley and have no chance of catching them. if it was a boxing match it would be stopped.

Rhodes hasnt scored a january move was blocked. Scores when he wants but obviously doesnt want to!
