FULL-TIME: Blackburn Rovers 1, West Bromwich Albion 2

Despite Steve Kean calling this one of a run of ‘winnable’ matches, a pathetic performance from Blackburn earned them nothing as West Brom left Ewood with 2-1 win.

With little attacking displays bar Robinson goal kicks, Rovers often found themselves plagued by poor passing and lack of possession.

Despite a respite from protests, Steve Kean still couldn’t escape a stadium hell bent on his sacking.

First-half saw only a handful of chances in either team’s direction as play switched quickly between the two.

Rovers’ attempts at build-up play were often marred by foul passing leading to the ball being given away.

With Mauro Formica, Simon Vukcevic and Yakubu providing most of the somewhat limited attacking play by Rovers the home side often lacked men forward.

Probably the best chance for Rovers came from a Pedersen free kick; forcing Ben Foster to tip the dipping shot over the bar.

More times than not, Rovers’ assaults on West Brom’s goal were often caught up in their defence before shots were fired.

Despite protests called off, the lack of any advantage in the first half of play still saw a section of fans spouting the very chant of ‘Kean Out’ as the half-time whistle sounded.

If it was only a small number of fans chanting before the half, the rest quickly joined in after West Brom took the lead in the 51st minute.

With a free kick taken by Brunt, a failed clearance by Steven Nzonzi fell into the path of James Morrison who hammered the shot past Robinson fifteen yards from the box, taking the Baggies 1-0 up.

Favour again turned against Steven Kean as he opted to switch Vukcevic for Jason Roberts and Dunn for Grant Hanley.

West Brom were beginning to find their rhythm, as Blackburn came under increasing pressure from the away side’s assaults.

However, things soon turned after a goal kick from Robinson was headed across goal by Samba to the advancing Scott Dann. At full stretch the centre-back managed to tip the ball past Foster to take things level and earn his debut goal for the club.

Despite the goal, Rovers were still looking shaky in their somewhat improvised defence however and with fifteen minutes on the clock there were still no signs of improvement from them.

With a free kick from Chris Brunt, West Brom looked to have their second goal as the visiting players swarmed the box to tip in yet another failed clearance, though luckily Robinson got there in the end.

With Blackburn almost posing little threat this half, Steve Kean made his final substitution of the match; with David Goodwillie replacing Rochina on the 78th minute.

A succession of mistakes and bad passing saw what little possession Rovers managed to grasp quickly given away bar the odd strikes hit at Ben Foster.

With two minutes to go Blackburn’s woes deepened as Peter Odemwingie broke in from the right to fire off a long-distance effort to fly straight past Robinson. With West Brom now 2-1 up, Ewood quickly erupted into shouts for the beleaguered Kean to go.

With even Robinson coming forward for Rovers’ final efforts in injury time, eve the extra man wasn’t enough to turn the scoreline to a draw.

No idea where we go from here. I don't think that there is any organisation at the club capable of running a new managerial selection process. Could somebody from the Venkys please persuade me that there is any plan? How did they build up a business?

What is it going to take for Venky’s to acknowledge that the man they appointed manager of Blackburn Rovers if allowed to continue as manager, will not only take a once proud club into the Championship, but will end all hopes of their true aims of owning a EPL club to promote their business/businesses in the global market for greater financial gain. Venky’s should bite the bullet cut their losses sell the club to the highest bidder and move on, and put their dalliance of owning an EPL club down to nothing more than a failed avaricious objective on their part.

No, you are quite wrong - again. The game, begun with 11 on each side. If one team is so much better than the other, then you inevitably see sendings-off as they seek to 'level the playing field' with underhand tactics.

How did the tub-thumping Grintwums get on? And how come, as big a fan as you are, you never found your way to Boll-Ewood? Or aren't you let out with that ankle bracelet?

who said that says...

I reckon that's it chaps, not even Christmas and we're as good as relegated. The Venkys have left it too long before getting shut of this joker. Even if we scrape 3 points against Bolton, we're not going to get anything against Scouser's and Utd. Therefore we're on course for a 23 point season. It'll take a miracle to save us. Even if they sack him now, to get a new manager in and get the team playing the way they want will take time that we don't have.

Don't want to sound defeatist, but I believe that's the reality of it.

unfortunately i watched the whole 90 mins and it was embarassing how many times we just gave the ball away, rochina been the main culprit.

Kean should consider his own position as untenable now, the 1% of protestors he claims wont cut any ice now when the whole stadium seemed to chant kean out.

Should this not be the death knell of Kean then I'm afraid that is it as far as Prem football goes for BRFC.

Simply not good enough all over the park against a very poor WBA side struggling for points but, the desire to see the game through won the day for them. Credit to them.

Watching this abysmal football is gut wrenching.

Venky must act now or the heat will be well & truly turned up for the BWFC game.

Do the decent thing Kean & resign allowing for some other manager to attempt at rescuing the situation.

He didn't "break in from the right" ...he walked across the top of the box as three rovers watched him puck his spot. Pathetic. And calling off the protests is pathetic, too. We can support the lads all we want, but if they have follow kean's direction, it is futile. And if kean still gets to make the subs, we may as well not play the second halves anymore. At least you guys get to have few pints and sleep it off. This is how i get to start my saturday. Pi$$ off, kean.

They can't afford to get rid of him and that's a fact. Unless he volunteers to leave with no money as a gesture of good will, then he ain't going anywhere.

And as pointed out on numerous occasions, you're aiming for the wrong target. Kean is a symptom, not the disease.

Getting rid of Kean might seem a victory if it happened but it would be like re-arranging the deck-chairs on the Titanic.

Hi Doc,

Now then, this guy has kept hold of his job for one reason only. It has been mocked for a while, but a posting named Ewood the truth suggested that Kean and a group of Glasgow criminals. with the aid of Mr Weasle himself, Jerome Anderson, became part owners of the club through the back door. When I first read that, I thought what a fairy tale.

Given what has happened since and by that I mean an improved contract, the continued backing of the owners, his promise about the 6 winnable games and that we have no chance of being relegated, I have come to the conclusion that this article has some truth in it.

Quite recently a former high profile employee of the club who left his position in May of this year was shown the article. He spent several minutes reading it and handed it back to the person who gave it to him. Pushed for comments by people in the room, he said a ' a lot of that is true'

It just gets worse and if Kean cant see and doesnt accept it he deserves all the contempt he receives at Ewood Park - the club is a joke - it lacks leadership both on and off the field - there is no organisation to the team and no alternative plan when things are going wrong

It used to be a pleasure to go to Ewood now it is not even mildly entertaining. I am noit even sure this team would survive in the Championship with this guy in charge.

Sadly Kean and Venkys will have the reputation in football of being wimps (fighter Kean you are having a laugh)
who murdered a respectable club within 12 months - Enjoy your Christmas because not many fans at Ewood will with this bunch around

The problem is Venkys they are plain incompetent when it comes to football

Let's face it, most of us knew in September we were going down. I've been to every home game and a few away recently, but that's the first time the body language of the players said they weren't playing for kean.

It was so disappointing, people in the Blackburn end were falling out and arguing.

I can take getting beat, but getting beat without a fight is not acceptable.

We want our rovers back....

Five Live comment;

Blackburn boss Steve Kean, when asked if he can see himself walking away: "No I can't. We will be back in tomorrow and we will prepare for the game on Tuesday. After that game the table will hopefully look better. The owners are fully behind me but I am sure they like the players, the staff and fans are disappointed. We want to be winning games especially at home and it makes Tuesday's game (at home to Bolton) massive if it wasn't massive already."

What a W@nker!!

This was sadly predicted by many of us once it was clear towards the end of last season that "I see no plane" Kean was not up to the job and it was clear that whatever Venkys plan was for Rovers it was not a footie plan.
So where are those who scorned us critics as cynics, of not giving Kean and Venkys a chance now ?
This is going down as one of football's great disasters -Titantic Ewood style. Today Rovers were clueless, lacking energy, drive, plan.
Kean won't be replaced and who would take over anyway ? A grand football club admired and respected for punching above its weight ruined by Spivs.
What's going on at Rovers is criminal. When we're declared bakrupt and lose ten points, Kean will say that's why we went down.
...and two LBs injured and our agent's son, a promising LB, isn't even on the bench. Talk about cutting the wage bill. Send for the fraud squad.

What a terrible performance! The situation is so hopeless, you have to ask the question, if Kean was sacked, which manager of any repute would a. take on a team in our league position and b. come to a club that is so badly run and in such dissaray. We would end up with another inexperienced puppet maybe plucked from the lower divisions. In the immortal words of Private Frazer.... we're doomed!

Brilliant quote from rovers fooball blog;

The worst team I’ve ever seen in a blue and white shirt.

That’s how I described today to my better half.

I’ve seen some bad stuff down the years at Ewood.

But today really does take the biscuit.

Pedersen at left back? Hanley at right back? Really?

I know what – let’s bring Goodwillie on. In the history of the Premier League has there been a player who’s ever looked more unfit than him?

Jason Roberts? We need a goal. Let’s bring on our non-scoring saviour then.

There can be no more excuses. No more putting a positive spin on things.

Steve Kean is well and truly out of his depth. Venky’s? Are you really THAT stupid?

Having him in charge of a Premier League team is like asking my better half to fit a new bathroom.

She wouldn’t have a clue.

Steve. Neither do you.

There can be no more excuses. No more putting a positive spin on things. Steve Kean is well and truly out of his depth. Venky’s? Are you really THAT stupid? Having him in charge of a Premier League team is like asking my better half to fit a new bathroom. She wouldn’t have a clue. Steve. Neither do you. god Im bored

If so do it!!, I'll bet they are not too impressed that the Rovers supporters feel this way! & we feel this way because we care! not because we like having a go.

Surely they have to act now! FFS!
I'll second that! Also Alan Shearer should give his honest opinion about his former team being managed by someone with no managerial ability.

How did the FA think Venky's were proper and fit persons to buy this club. Only 12 months in and suggestions of financial problems. Surely during the interview process it could have been seen that these people were well off the mark with their views and expectations. Just after buying the club they said they wanted a top four finish and have
£5 million to spend. Someone should have put them straight before they bought it. now we are landed with this manager who has just had his contract improved for being a failure and to cap it all we have Anderson with his bad purchases. This team is not good enough to survive the Premiership.The sooner they walk and let us start again the better it will be. We need this lot out.

It does. They have a massive sign about drinking and driving as you enter Burnley. Tells you a lot about the place. A big dive. Kean would fit in there though. Burnley fans are obsessed with Rovers. They sing about nothing else at their games. We are their world.

That was absolutely appalling.

No tactical nous; minimal effort; no skill; no energy.

Outclassed by a poor, struggling team for the second week running.

The only hope for us is that there are other teams around us at the bottom of the table and we are not yet marooned.

But, as many people have already identified, how do we attract a quality manager to Ewood? Clueless owners, poor bank balance and a fan base which is small and tolerant of the ignorant minority who don't know how to behave decently.

At least at Sunderland we showed some fight but even that was lacking today.

I must say I almost walked away when I saw the team selected. If ever a game was lost before the kick off this was it. Also proved beyond doubt that the players he purchased in the summer were a coplete and utter waste of time. Why does someone at LET ask the simple question if we havetwo full backs missing why are two full backs Kean brought to the club not selected. What is the point of paying players if they never play.
Venkys if you do not sack Kean now please do not give him more money to waste and save it for the new guy to help us get out of the Championship. We need it although I cannot see any one buying many of this lot so clearing the decks is going to be difficult once again.

I expect that those people who were demanding the removal of Allardyce are broadly the same as those currently calling for Kean to go.

If only the owners had taken the time to get decent advice on the way forward when they bought the Club.

There was no need to panic.

Unfortunately, no-one can accuse them of panicking now. However, I believe that, given a decent break from the ill-conceived protests they WILL sack Kean as not to do so will make them look ludicrous.

Who knows where we go from there.

I TOTALLY AGREE - any player who comes out with "we back Kean cr@p" should ONLY be allowed to do so if they publicly state in the same artical that they will stay for a full season, even (??) sorry I mean, WHEN we get relegated.

(although this obviously DOES NOT apply to Jason Roberts who is a total to$$pot, Venky/Kean appologist and a cr@p footballer).

Hi Doc,

I'm resigned pal to what is inevitable & as you point out folk's don't seem to disappointed !

That was dire mate.

Enjoy your nectar's Doc :)

Venkys - if Kean does not go this week we are down. If you sack him now and give the new manager some funds in Jan we may just have a chance - so act now.

If you don't have a manager lined up then still "Sack Kean" and put Ryan Nelsen as caretaker for a week whilst you sort it out - start with this list -

Mark Hughes
Rafael Benitez
Paul Lambert
Granham Souness

33rd...........
Let me know when you get your reply from V. The last I remember those four names you put for manager had brains, they won't touch Rovers with a barge pole,they know how corrupt the set up is. Try not to confuse venkys with normal football club owners, they are linked with anderson and have shown utter ignorance since taking over, I don't think they are about to change any time soon.
Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton...the real one not our poster on here? Or how about Mike Newall? Any of the above would do for me....FFS Kean must be gone by morning?

I expect that those people who were demanding the removal of Allardyce are broadly the same as those currently calling for Kean to go.

If only the owners had taken the time to get decent advice on the way forward when they bought the Club.

There was no need to panic.

Unfortunately, no-one can accuse them of panicking now. However, I believe that, given a decent break from the ill-conceived protests they WILL sack Kean as not to do so will make them look ludicrous.

Who knows where we go from there.
Yes and you would be able to fill them in on looking ludicrous. How sad that the poor owners couldn't care a monkey's cuss what anyone thinks. I think you are way behind in your reasoning. Poor Venkys chose the, too good to be true options, and guess what they were too good to be true. Well done to you for finally realising you were wrong, I think you should stop calling people who have grown tired of terrible miss - management and aire their views as they should. I hope you can somehow realise what damage you have done by attacking honest people who have an opinion on what they see. Given some of your recent posts, I don't expect rational behaviour, but eventually, you may regain stability. Good luck.

I think you are way behind in your reasoning. Poor Venkys chose the, too good to be true options, and guess what they were too good to be true. Well done to you for finally realising you were wrong, I think you should stop calling people who have grown tired of terrible miss - management and aire their views as they should. I hope you can somehow realise what damage you have done by attacking honest people who have an opinion on what they see. Given some of your recent posts, I don't expect rational behaviour, but eventually, you may regain stability. Good luck.[/p][/quote]The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crisis maintain their neutrality. Bazzer

And who can forget agent coyle? Took them to the dizzy heights of the premiership then dumped them just when they needed him most and down they went. Agent coyle made sure the dingles felt the pain of relegation but also gave them a taste of the forbidden fruit that they will hunger for but never taste again, premier league football. One season in the permier league don't make you an established premier league club.

If that does'nt show he knows nothing I don't know what will. Venkys won't sack him as it proves they were wrong all along.

Venkys CAN'T sack him. he will have to sack himslef as he owns as much of the club as they do! He has stated again today that he wont resign, he says he is a fighter and the table will look a lot better after the Bolton game. I dont know how, as we are 4 points adrift of safety and now 3 points adrift of Wigan, so even a wil will mean we are still second off the bottom. Not that I think we will beat Bolton, a draw is the best we can expect and probably wont even get that.

Another of our 'so called' winable games gone. It's almost 8pm and Kean is still in charge! I would say if he is not gone by Sunday, truce over and 100% protest against Kean from the next match. This hanging on is only postponing the inevitable. He needs to go then the rebuilding can commence, although it may now be too late for this season!

4 Points from the 15 so far from the 6 winnable games. He will still ne here at 9pm 10pm 11pm and this time next week. Thats is whether we win lose or draw against Bolton.

Anyone in any doubt at the minute that the owners are corrupt, should have no doubt after the Bolton game. We will NOT win that game and he will NOT be sacked. I will be paying no more money to watch this CORRUPTION continue.

How the hell did the walker trust come to sell out to venkys? Obviously no due diligence was done it they would have seen that venkys were totally unsuitable to carry on Jack Walkers work. Jack loved this club but was a businessman who knew football is a results business and if people didn't perform he replaced them with someone who would. I dread to think what Jack would make of the shambles that are venkys and Kean but the walker trust must take some responsibility for our current predicament

Stone Island says...

Relegation is now a CERTAINTY. I thought I hated Burnley, but what I feel for Venky's and Kean far surpasses that hatred. I honestly can't remember feeling like this about any other human beings. I totally, and utterly DESPISE them.

Between them, they have totally DESTROYED this once proud football club. I'm actually feeling SICK as I type this. I cannot comprehend what has happened over this last twelve months, or why it has happened.

I am so ANGRY, it is almost unbearable. If I had the misfortune to come face to face with any of the Rao's, or Steve Kean, I honestly think I would spend the rest of my life in jail.

On another site, someone has posted a link to Keans post match interview. I haven't heard it, as I can't bear to listen to the incessant drivel that comes out of his mouth, or what other orifice he speaks out of. But I'd be willing to bet, that he said he would take the positives out of this game. Well I didn't see any. Such is the ignorance, arrogance, and sheer bloody stupidity of the 'man', he would look you in the eye, whilst keeping a straight face, and tell you that we still have NO CHANCE of going down! He is a total DISASTER. A born LOSER, and a habitual LIAR. And Venky's love him!
So what does that make them MORONS?

I haven't got a clue as to Venky's true intentions for this once proud, once respected football club. But i'll tell you this; they are not honourable. Whatever is going on down there, is almost certainly CRIMINAL. The truth WILL come out eventually, but by the time it does, this famous Lancashire club will be in total ruins. We may even NEVER recover.

A few weeks ago, a regular poster on here, Bazzer, referred to the Bhatti Brothers, who Bought WWFC in the eighties. I vaguely remembered them, and did a bit of research on the subject. What I discovered was frightening. It sent shivers down my spine. Without going into too much detail, Wolves went from Division One, to Division Four, and to the brink of extinction, in consecutive seasons. If you are unfamiliar with the situation, just Google it. The similarities between them, and the IDIOTS that own our club now, are startling.

Everything that is humanly possible, must be done to get rid of the PARASITES, that have attached themselves to our club, before it is too late, and there is nothing left to salvage. Make no mistake; relegation this season is nothing, compared to the carnage that awaits, if we don't rid ourselves of the cancer, that is spreading through this once proud football club.

Venky's and Steve Kean: If I had a gun, I would shoot you.

Lets face reality the players will back Kean all the way he is hardly likely to give them the hairdryer treatment for under perfoming!

Venkys dont care what happens to the club, from a business perspective they cannot lose, simply press the ejector button, claim a parachute payment, sell off the wantaways and freefall to safety.

We are going down faster than a dingle who is a promise from his cousin!!

First para in the match report says it all "pathetic"! If the players are behind the Manager then they are for sure not showing it on the pitch. Disgraceful in every way!

4.2M in agents fees - that's at least double what the shower of sh*te brought into the club is worth. I hope Jerome is too busy counting his coin to help out again in this transfer window!!

Unfotunately there is absolutely no chance whatsoever of Keano turing this round - none whatsover!

Make no mistake; relegation this season is nothing, compared to the carnage that awaits, if we don't rid ourselves of the cancer, that is spreading through this once proud football club. Venky's and Steve Kean: If I had a gun, I would shoot you.[/p][/quote]Ahmen SI[/p][/quote]WHAT A GREAT POST. I hope KDG, NoddyMcCleod; Li1111, Wild Rover, Haslem Haslem and any other deluded 'hater' out there read SI's post and hangs their head in utter shame. RoversLoyal

stick to football says...

I watched the demise of Workington as a football league club in the late 60's to mid 70's and in all that time I never saw a more inept Manager than what Rovers have now and Kean has had money to spend ,those guys had peanuts but they had courage and commitment. If one saw that at Ewood one may feel different but today was one of the worst organised sides I have seen on a football pitch for years. At least Blackpool and Burnley went down fighting today one got the impression the players were not with Kean - they have sussed him out for what he is -
As for Venkys if they are fit and proper people to run a football club will someone please explain how such a verdict is arrived at because it beggars belief and the Premier League should be ashamed of itself

The people I feel sorry for are the genuine fans who have paid out good money in hard times to be served up with garbage week in week out

How many half season tickets have Rovers sold? I think if they Venkys were genuine owners they should offer to buy back Season tickets at half price from the many disillusioned Rovers fans. Sadly it will be the genuine staff who suffer while the Manager and players are protected by the PFA

Many will not be conned next year that is for sure

Agreed!! The club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom. All theories as to why dont really matter anymore. We as fans have seen the club we share dearly, torn apart in 12 sorry months. I have to say today the team looked totally inept. I fear even a change of manager now will be too late. We are well and truly goosed.
I sit in upper tier of Darwen end, I made my way to a spot just above the dug out, screamed with everything i have for Kean to be Man, to resign, to F OFF. But he's a coward, a low life a greedy **** who is in it only for himself. He has no shame, if he had one ounce of self respect he'd put up his hands and admit he's not friggin up to the job.
I really do think there is more to the influence of Anderson. It is just incomprehensible as to how Kean is still in the job.
I'd call on the protest's to resume against Bolton. We are already goosed. Even if we win that match, do we want Kean to remain? We may get the odd win, but the team today looked like championship fodder.
Venkys obviously do not care for BRFC as we do.
Lets fight for what we have all cared for over the years. We have had our ups and downs, but this has to be our biggest challenge. The very existence of BRFC as we know it is being ruined by 5 clowns.
No more apathy. Please all join the call for change.

I expect that those people who were demanding the removal of Allardyce are broadly the same as those currently calling for Kean to go. If only the owners had taken the time to get decent advice on the way forward when they bought the Club. There was no need to panic. Unfortunately, no-one can accuse them of panicking now. However, I believe that, given a decent break from the ill-conceived protests they WILL sack Kean as not to do so will make them look ludicrous. Who knows where we go from there.
Yes and you would be able to fill them in on looking ludicrous. How sad that the poor owners couldn't care a monkey's cuss what anyone thinks. I think you are way behind in your reasoning. Poor Venkys chose the, too good to be true options, and guess what they were too good to be true. Well done to you for finally realising you were wrong, I think you should stop calling people who have grown tired of terrible miss - management and aire their views as they should. I hope you can somehow realise what damage you have done by attacking honest people who have an opinion on what they see. Given some of your recent posts, I don't expect rational behaviour, but eventually, you may regain stability. Good luck.

ITS NOT ABOUT THE MANAGER!
All of this 'dignified under pressure' and its 'unfare on Kean' and 'his family can't attend' nonsense is distracting people from the real issue.

IT IS ABOUT THE CLUB!
No one man at Rovers has the right to destroy our club. Steve Kean's actions are doing exactly that.
We don't know Steve Kean, we have not even had a conversation with the man. I don't know if he is good, bad, or mad!. I do not hate him but I do love the club.
Now is the time for a change

For goodness sake the

VENKYS MUST ACT NOW!!!!!!!

No one man at Rovers has the right to destroy our club. Steve Kean's actions are doing exactly that. We don't know Steve Kean, we have not even had a conversation with the man. I don't know if he is good, bad, or mad!. I do not hate him but I do love the club. Now is the time for a change For goodness sake the VENKYS MUST ACT NOW!!!!!!! Nurseman

How did the FA sanction this take over, 12 months on with reports of financial problems and owners with absolutely no idea how a Premier League club should be run.Surely during the interview process it should have been clear that they were in cloud cuckoo land. Top 4 finish with £5 million to spend, It should have been obvious that they were not up to it. Or did nobody bother to interview them and ask them about their future plans. Not happy at all.

After watching Steve Kean's interview I really think he should be sacked and sacked on Monday morning. The team are playing without fight; just to see Pederson defending in the build up to second goal makes me sick. He is a senior pro and just not anywhere near up to the required standard to survive in the Premier League. Maybe too players are simply either just not good enough or experienced enough or simply need a kick up the backside and told to get 100% fit, work and train harder (a lot) and play with passion and commitment. Just look at how much improved Wigan are, although they do have a decent manager. The irritating Kean deserves to be sacked; however he will carry on until the end. Someone at the club should act because enough is enough.

===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park===

Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs
such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890.

On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been
increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the
pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation.

Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1.

Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the
mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation.

As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs
from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of
pulling.

The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's
firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at
the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park.

Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre.

During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack
the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1.

An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other
Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs".

Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United.

During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper.

For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing.

Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day.

Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support.

It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's.

On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3
or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces
on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1.

During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving
Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed
to be involved; the game ended 0-0.

As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only.

As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the
Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built.

During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that
football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that
these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate.

Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995.

Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as
Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's.

There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North".

Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave
Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later
that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park.

However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved.

Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park.

The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans.

Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by
Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively.

As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew.

Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their
Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously.

For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley
fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley.

Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.

Grewat article opn the Ewood Park facebook group: http://www.facebook. com/group.php?gid=10 1361466586630&v=info &ref=ts ===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park=== Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City. The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890. On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation. Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1. Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation. As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of pulling. The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park. Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre. During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1. An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs". Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United. During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper. For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing. Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day. Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support. It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's. On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3 or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1. During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed to be involved; the game ended 0-0. As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only. As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built. During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate. Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995. Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's. There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North". Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park. However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved. Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park.

Hear, hear my friend. I may be Blue and White, but you seem to be talking more sense than most of the people here this evening. It is a pleasure to see someone using their head, and thinking about the bigger picture. We may be from two sh*t holes in Lancashire, but at some stage we managed to contribute more to this world than most. Support Lancashire, keep the friendly banter. See you next year :-( !

===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park===

Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs
such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890.

On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been
increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the
pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation.

Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1.

Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the
mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation.

As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs
from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of
pulling.

The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's
firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at
the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park.

Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre.

During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack
the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1.

An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other
Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs".

Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United.

During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper.

For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing.

Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day.

Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support.

It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's.

On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3
or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces
on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1.

During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving
Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed
to be involved; the game ended 0-0.

As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only.

As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the
Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built.

During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that
football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that
these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate.

Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995.

Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as
Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's.

There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North".

Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave
Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later
that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park.

However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved.

Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park.

The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans.

Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by
Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively.

As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew.

Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their
Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously.

For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley
fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley.

Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.
That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case

Grewat article opn the Ewood Park facebook group: http://www.facebook. com/group.php?gid=10 1361466586630&v= info &ref=ts ===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park=== Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City. The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890. On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation. Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1. Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation. As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of pulling. The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park. Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre. During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1. An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs". Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United. During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper. For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing. Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day. Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support. It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's. On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3 or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1. During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed to be involved; the game ended 0-0. As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only. As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built. During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate. Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995. Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as Rovers main rivals.

Rover for 45 years makes a good point. The fit and proper status test is not fit for purpose. Ask any pompey fan. The FA, Prem league, Football league, do not look after the welfare of Clubs. It seems all Venkys had to do was talk sh#t for a minute, probably well versed by Kentaro / Anderson. Now our club is up **** creek without a paddle. Valid questions to be asked of the fit and proper staus.

I.m sick to the pit of my guts over what these bast@rds are doing to my club,i read as fiction the recent postings suggesting criminal activity connected with Venkys/Kean etc. But i really can,t imagine any other reason for the the destruction of this once proud club or the apparent invincibility of what is without doubt the worst tactician, biggest fantasist,liar,conma
n and thick skinned pillock of a manager i have seen anywhere in my 42+ years of supporting the Rovers, unless something very dishonest,criminal and dishonorable is behind what has been happening to my club over the past year or so.Surely to god at least one of the employees who were the backbone of the club till being forced out would come forward and say what they must know is happening,because if this can happen to a well run and respected club like Blackburn was just 12 months or so ago it could happen to a vast majority of the clubs in the top division,where millions in profit can be gained just by relegating a club for asset stripping purposes.I,ve also found as unbelievable the way that the media has criticised the fans protesting at the way the club is being destroyed yet printing/stating nothing negative about Man Utd fans who have had an ongoing protest (albeit non-vocal) for the last few seasons even though their team has continued success. It really does feel as if the countries media and the football personalities are not interested in Keans/Venkys record since they took over.Even our local Telegraph don't seem to be interested enough to do some old fashioned investigative journalism as well as to put the questions that a vast majority of the Ewood faithful demand to know from the powers that be,and publish the questions as well as the fact that Venkys/Kean refuse to answer them if thats the case.Jesus it,s enough to make anyone paranoid.... Kean out - Venkys out .... Rovers 4eva !!!

===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park===

Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs
such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890.

On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been
increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the
pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation.

Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1.

Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the
mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation.

As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs
from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of
pulling.

The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's
firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at
the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park.

Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre.

During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack
the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1.

An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other
Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs".

Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United.

During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper.

For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing.

Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day.

Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support.

It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's.

On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3
or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces
on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1.

During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving
Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed
to be involved; the game ended 0-0.

As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only.

As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the
Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built.

During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that
football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that
these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate.

Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995.

Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as
Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's.

There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North".

Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave
Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later
that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park.

However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved.

Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park.

The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans.

Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by
Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively.

As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew.

Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their
Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously.

For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley
fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley.

Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.
That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case
Self gratifying garbage, i'm afraid.

Rovers Championship winning side on 1995 would have thrashed B*rnley's Championship winning side of 1960: 10-0.

Bob Crompton (b Blackburn); Bill Eckersley (b Southport); Roy Vernon (b Prestatyn); Ronnie Clayton (b Preston); Brian Douglas (b Blackburn), Derek Dougan (b Belfast); Keith Newton (Manchester); Mike England (b Holywell); Simon Garner (b Boston); Tony Parkes (b Sheffield); Alan Shearer (b Newcastle); Colin Hendry (b Keith); Brad Friedel (b Lakewood, USA)... Jack Walker (b Blackburn)...I COULD GO ON.

BRFC:
FA Cup winner 6 times; League Cup winners 1; Charity Shield 1; Full Members Cup winners 1 and Champions of England 3.

By my reckoning B*rnley have only averaged bigger attendances in 14 years out of 112.

John Lewis, BRFC founder: In 1911 Lewis was appointed FA Counsillor ansd in 1923 he became vice-president of the FA, serving in that capacity till his death in 1926.

At his passing the FA stated:

"His influence on the game at home abroad was immense and he pioneered the game of football not only throughout England and Ireland, but Europe, South Africa and Australia. A most remarkable man who left his mark in many directions and football will never see his likes again."

Blackburn Rovers are a big club in a small town. Per capita Blackburn Rovers are one of the best supported football clubs in the world.

Blackburn Rovers are the greatest and most successful town club in the history of English football and were the first giants of the English game. This has meant that per capita, Blackburn Rovers have always enjoyed staunch, passionate, popular and loyal support.

Sadly, the 1960s, 70's and 80's saw a decline in the clubs fortunes and this was reflected in the attendance figures, this happens at all football clubs and Blackburn Rovers are no exception. The 1970's and 1980's were a thin period. Crowds became smaller and the possibility of promotion back to the First Division became more remote with each passing season. From the mid-nineteen seventies onwards the club was in financial difficulties, by the early 1980's the club was threatened with extinction. A thriving army of supporters’ clubs carried the club
through these dark days, unsung and unacknowledged.

Today, the attendance Blackburn Rovers attracts to Ewood Park is the highest in proportion to town/city size in the Premier League. Blackburn is a town and only has a population of 105,085, so the attendance accounts for nearly a quarter of the town's population. Ewood Park is the 11th largest facility in capacity in the Premiership.

B*rnley just cannot compete.

Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City. The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890. On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation. Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1. Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation. As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of pulling. The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park. Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre. During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1. An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs". Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United. During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper. For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing. Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day. Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support. It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's. On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3 or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1. During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed to be involved; the game ended 0-0. As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only. As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built. During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate. Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995. Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's. There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North". Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park. However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved. Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park. The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans. Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively. As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew. Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously. For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley. Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.[/p][/quote]That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case[/p][/quote]Self gratifying garbage, i'm afraid.

Jack Walker (b Blackburn)...I COULD GO ON. BRFC: FA Cup winner 6 times; League Cup winners 1; Charity Shield 1; Full Members Cup winners 1 and Champions of England 3.

===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park===

Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs
such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years.

The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's
firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at
the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park.

Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre.

During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack
the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1.

An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other
Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs".

Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United.

During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper.

For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing.

Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day.

Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support.

It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's.

On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3
or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces
on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1.

During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving
Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed
to be involved; the game ended 0-0.

As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only.

As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the
Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built.

During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that
football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that
these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate.

Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995.

Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as
Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's.

There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North".

Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave
Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later
that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park.

However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved.

Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park.

The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans.

Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by
Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively.

As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew.

Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their
Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously.

For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley
fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley.

Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.
That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case
Self gratifying garbage, i'm afraid.

Rovers Championship winning side on 1995 would have thrashed B*rnley's Championship winning side of 1960: 10-0.

Bob Crompton (b Blackburn); Bill Eckersley (b Southport); Roy Vernon (b Prestatyn); Ronnie Clayton (b Preston); Brian Douglas (b Blackburn), Derek Dougan (b Belfast); Keith Newton (Manchester); Mike England (b Holywell); Simon Garner (b Boston); Tony Parkes (b Sheffield); Alan Shearer (b Newcastle); Colin Hendry (b Keith); Brad Friedel (b Lakewood, USA)... Jack Walker (b Blackburn)...I COULD GO ON.

BRFC:
FA Cup winner 6 times; League Cup winners 1; Charity Shield 1; Full Members Cup winners 1 and Champions of England 3.

By my reckoning B*rnley have only averaged bigger attendances in 14 years out of 112.

John Lewis, BRFC founder: In 1911 Lewis was appointed FA Counsillor ansd in 1923 he became vice-president of the FA, serving in that capacity till his death in 1926.

At his passing the FA stated:

"His influence on the game at home abroad was immense and he pioneered the game of football not only throughout England and Ireland, but Europe, South Africa and Australia. A most remarkable man who left his mark in many directions and football will never see his likes again."

Blackburn Rovers are a big club in a small town. Per capita Blackburn Rovers are one of the best supported football clubs in the world.

Blackburn Rovers are the greatest and most successful town club in the history of English football and were the first giants of the English game. This has meant that per capita, Blackburn Rovers have always enjoyed staunch, passionate, popular and loyal support.

Sadly, the 1960s, 70's and 80's saw a decline in the clubs fortunes and this was reflected in the attendance figures, this happens at all football clubs and Blackburn Rovers are no exception. The 1970's and 1980's were a thin period. Crowds became smaller and the possibility of promotion back to the First Division became more remote with each passing season. From the mid-nineteen seventies onwards the club was in financial difficulties, by the early 1980's the club was threatened with extinction. A thriving army of supporters’ clubs carried the club
through these dark days, unsung and unacknowledged.

Today, the attendance Blackburn Rovers attracts to Ewood Park is the highest in proportion to town/city size in the Premier League. Blackburn is a town and only has a population of 105,085, so the attendance accounts for nearly a quarter of the town's population. Ewood Park is the 11th largest facility in capacity in the Premiership.

B*rnley just cannot compete.
RUBBISH I SAW BOTH TEAMS AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE NO TEAM THAT WOULD HAVE MATCHED THEM YOU WILL FIND THAT FOR A TOWN OF ITS SIZE BURNLEY IS STILL THE BEST SUPPORTED CLUB IN THE LAND BY RATIO DO YOU HONESTLY THINK YOU COULD HAVE DELT WITH OUR 59/60 SIDE YOU ARE DREAMING IM SORRY TO SAY YOU WILL BE RELIGATED THIS SEASON ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME FRIEDEL WAS IN COLIN Mc DONALDS LEAGUE DON'T BE STUPID

Grewat article opn the Ewood Park facebook group: http://www.facebook. com/group.php?gid=10 1361466586630&v= info &ref=ts ===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park=== Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City. The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890. On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation. Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1. Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation. As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of pulling. The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people.

Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only. As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built. During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate. Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995. Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's. There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North". Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park. However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved. Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park. The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans. Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively. As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew. Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously. For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley. Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.[/p][/quote]That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case[/p][/quote]Self gratifying garbage, i'm afraid.

A most remarkable man who left his mark in many directions and football will never see his likes again." Blackburn Rovers are a big club in a small town. Per capita Blackburn Rovers are one of the best supported football clubs in the world. Blackburn Rovers are the greatest and most successful town club in the history of English football and were the first giants of the English game. This has meant that per capita, Blackburn Rovers have always enjoyed staunch, passionate, popular and loyal support. Sadly, the 1960s, 70's and 80's saw a decline in the clubs fortunes and this was reflected in the attendance figures, this happens at all football clubs and Blackburn Rovers are no exception. The 1970's and 1980's were a thin period. Crowds became smaller and the possibility of promotion back to the First Division became more remote with each passing season. From the mid-nineteen seventies onwards the club was in financial difficulties, by the early 1980's the club was threatened with extinction. A thriving army of supporters’ clubs carried the club through these dark days, unsung and unacknowledged. Today, the attendance Blackburn Rovers attracts to Ewood Park is the highest in proportion to town/city size in the Premier League. Blackburn is a town and only has a population of 105,085, so the attendance accounts for nearly a quarter of the town's population. Ewood Park is the 11th largest facility in capacity in the Premiership. B*rnley just cannot compete.[/p][/quote]RUBBISH I SAW BOTH TEAMS AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE NO TEAM THAT WOULD HAVE MATCHED THEM YOU WILL FIND THAT FOR A TOWN OF ITS SIZE BURNLEY IS STILL THE BEST SUPPORTED CLUB IN THE LAND BY RATIO DO YOU HONESTLY THINK YOU COULD HAVE DELT WITH OUR 59/60 SIDE YOU ARE DREAMING IM SORRY TO SAY YOU WILL BE RELIGATED THIS SEASON ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL ME FRIEDEL WAS IN COLIN Mc DONALDS LEAGUE DON'T BE STUPID Burnley59/60

===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park===

Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs
such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890.

On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been
increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the
pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation.

Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1.

Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the
mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation.

As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs
from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of
pulling.

The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's
firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at
the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park.

Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre.

During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack
the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1.

An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other
Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs".

Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United.

During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper.

For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing.

Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day.

Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support.

It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's.

On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3
or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces
on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1.

During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving
Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed
to be involved; the game ended 0-0.

As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only.

As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the
Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built.

During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that
football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that
these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate.

Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995.

Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as

However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's.

There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North".

Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave
Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later
that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park.

However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved.

Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park.

The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans.

Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by
Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively.

As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew.

Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their
Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously.

For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley
fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley.

Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.
That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case
Self gratifying garbage, i'm afraid.

Rovers Championship winning side on 1995 would have thrashed B*rnley's Championship winning side of 1960: 10-0.

Bob Crompton (b Blackburn); Bill Eckersley (b Southport); Roy Vernon (b Prestatyn); Ronnie Clayton (b Preston); Brian Douglas (b Blackburn), Derek Dougan (b Belfast); Keith Newton (Manchester); Mike England (b Holywell); Simon Garner (b Boston); Tony Parkes (b Sheffield); Alan Shearer (b Newcastle); Colin Hendry (b Keith); Brad Friedel (b Lakewood, USA)... Jack Walker (b Blackburn)...I COULD GO ON.

BRFC:
FA Cup winner 6 times; League Cup winners 1; Charity Shield 1; Full Members Cup winners 1 and Champions of England 3.

By my reckoning B*rnley have only averaged bigger attendances in 14 years out of 112.

John Lewis, BRFC founder: In 1911 Lewis was appointed FA Counsillor ansd in 1923 he became vice-president of the FA, serving in that capacity till his death in 1926.

At his passing the FA stated:

"His influence on the game at home abroad was immense and he pioneered the game of football not only throughout England and Ireland, but Europe, South Africa and Australia. A most remarkable man who left his mark in many directions and football will never see his likes again."

Blackburn Rovers are a big club in a small town. Per capita Blackburn Rovers are one of the best supported football clubs in the world.

Blackburn Rovers are the greatest and most successful town club in the history of English football and were the first giants of the English game. This has meant that per capita, Blackburn Rovers have always enjoyed staunch, passionate, popular and loyal support.

Sadly, the 1960s, 70's and 80's saw a decline in the clubs fortunes and this was reflected in the attendance figures, this happens at all football clubs and Blackburn Rovers are no exception. The 1970's and 1980's were a thin period. Crowds became smaller and the possibility of promotion back to the First Division became more remote with each passing season. From the mid-nineteen seventies onwards the club was in financial difficulties, by the early 1980's the club was threatened with extinction. A thriving army of supporters’ clubs carried the club
through these dark days, unsung and unacknowledged.

Today, the attendance Blackburn Rovers attracts to Ewood Park is the highest in proportion to town/city size in the Premier League. Blackburn is a town and only has a population of 105,085, so the attendance accounts for nearly a quarter of the town's population. Ewood Park is the 11th largest facility in capacity in the Premiership.

B*rnley just cannot compete.

Grewat article opn the Ewood Park facebook group: http://www.facebook. com/group.php?gid=10 1361466586630&v= info &ref=ts ===Crowd trouble at Ewood Park=== Crowd trouble at football matches are far from a modern phenomenon. Blackburn Rovers have a number of local Lancashire rivalries, due to being the most successful of all the town clubs in Lancashire and England and due to the relative proximity of numerous other town clubs such as Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Burnley, Preston North End and Wigan, along with Lancashire city clubs such as Liverpool, Everton, Manchester United and Manchester City. The local rivalry between Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End goes back over one hundred years. In 1888 Preston refused to play a match against Blackburn due to their reception by the Blackburn fans. Whether this was at Ewood Park or not is unclear as Rovers did not take up permanent residence at Ewood Park until 1890. On Christmas Day 1890 during Rovers first season at Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers played local rivals Darwen. Rovers were due to play Wolverhampton Wandereres the following day and so fielded a weakened team. This infuriated the fans, particularly as ticket prices had been increased for the game. When the Darwen team appeared, the fans urged them to leave the pitch, which they did, later re-emerging with their second eleven. Eventually, Blackburn and Darwen fans invaded the pitch, pulling up the goal posts and threatening to wreck the press box. The police intervened and finally managed to control the situation. Lancashire derbies can always be heated affairs and on 27.11.1926, during a Division 1 (Level 1) fixture Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United saw some ugly scenes of crowd trouble immediately after the final whistle was blown. Rovers player, 'our' Sid Puddefoot was seen by many Rovers fans to be lying on the ground after the final whistle. The Rovers fans believed he had been hit by a United player and began a pitch invasion. This led to a dangerous situation in which the Manchester United players were surrounded by hundreds of angry Rovers fans. The police intervened for the safety of the players and managed to clear a path to the players tunnel. However, hundreds of Rovers fans remained on the pitch and many efforts were made to attack the United players. Once inside their changing room, the United players locked the door in fear. Soon after, the police managed to disperse the crowd. Rovers won the game 2-1. Blackburn Rovers did have an active hooligan following in the late 1960's to the mid 1970's seeing the town of Blackburn and Ewood Park develop a particularly fearsome reputation. From the mid 1960's to the mid 1970's Rovers began to fall into decline, eventually being relegated to Division 3 (Level 3) at the end of the 1970-1971 season for the first time in their history, remaining their until promotion as Division 3 champions during their centenary year at the end of the 1974-1975 season. From the mid 1970's onwards, Ewood Park began to lose its fearsome reputation. As early as 1963 there were reports in the national media of fighting between Blackburn and Liverpool fans at Ewood Park. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, Blackburn's hooligan following was led mainly by Hells Angel's from Darwen. In the 1970's, skin head gangs from the Little Harwood, Queens Park and Audley areas of Blackburn began to follow the club. During this period, there were hooligan mobs in the Darwen End, Blackburn End and Riverside terrace which occasionally resulted in serious out breaks of crowd trouble with Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley hooligans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Blackburn is a small town and sometimes simply cannot cope with the numbers that city clubs in particular are capable of pulling. The National Front had a presence at Ewood Park in the 1970's and early to mid 1980's. The NF youth paper, Bulldog was also occasionally on sale outside Ewood Park. One of the things that perhaps acted as the glue that that bound together hooligan mobs/organised casual's firms in the area was the NF. On one occasion in 1978, the target of racist abuse at Ewood Park was a Crystal Palace player Vince Hilaire, the first established black players in English football, who was given a volley of monkey chants and foul abuse coupled with National Front support which indicated that there was something more sinister taking place; in those days almost all black players got the same racist treatment at many English football grounds, Ewood Park was no exception. Alex Williams the Manchester City Goal Keeper (1985) was showered with bananas, apples, monkey chants and other racist abuse at the beginning of the second half as he ran towards the Blackburn End to take up position in City's goal. Williams was awarded the MBE in the 2002 New Years Honours list for his services to young people. A very large Union Flag with, "BLACKBURN NF" emblazoned along the middle was also highlighted on national TV news in the mid 1980's during a news report on racism at England matches. This kind of menace was certainly not uncommon at football grounds in England at the time and Ewood Park in the late 1970s and early to mid-1980s, it went with the experience of attending games at Ewood Park. Other early influential hooligan mobs that followed Blackburn Rovers came from the Mill Hill and Higher Croft areas of Blackburn, known as the Mill Hill Mob and H Division. However, there were often battles between these two rival gangs in Blackburn town centre. During a game against London club Queens Park Rangers, 17.09.1969 a Rovers fan ran onto the pitch from the Blackburn End and attacked the Queens Park Rangers Goal Keeper. He avoided police detection but was arrested some weeks later. Although incidences of individual fans encroaching the Ewood Park field of play and attacking or attempting to attack players, match officials or opposing fans is rare, this kind of incident has been known to happen; a fan ran on the pitch to attack the Burnley Goal Keeper in a fixture at Ewood Park during the 1965-1966 season before being intercepted and a fan ran onto the pitch, again from the Riverside Stand to remonstrate with the referee during a 1996-1997 season fixture. However, the QPR Goal Keeper attack is interesting as it was one of the first, some believe to be the first incident in English football, were a fan ran onto the pitch and physically assaulted a player. Rovers lost the game 0-1. An organised hooligan firm, the Blackburn Youth emerged in 1982 as Blackburn Rovers first casuals firm. As Blackburn lies in East Lancashire just north of the major Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Blackburn has historically been strongly influenced by their causal trends in music and clothes much earlier than other Lancashire towns. For example, to this day Rovers fans or 'scarfers' and casuals refer to Burnley fans and casuals as, "the scruffs". Blackburn's catchment area includes Darwen, Accrington, Rishton, Great Harwood and Clitheroe and there has often been an uneasy relationship between the firms/mobs from each of these places, as well as from within the town itself. More recently this has included trouble between followers from Blackburn and Darwen and Clitheroe and Accrington; these tensions explaining Blackburn's inability to organise a consistently active hooligan firm. Also, Blackburn's neighbouring satellite towns include small firms from the so-called “bigger” clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Leeds United. During the early 1970's this was not the case. In 1971 Burnley fans arrived early at Ewood Park for a "friendly" fixture and hurried into the Darwen End. At this time the terracing at Ewood Park was un-sectioned from the Blackburn End all the way round to the Darwen End. At half-time the fans behind the goal would sometimes exchange ends. Those standing on the Riverside, caught in the middle, were buffeted around a little when there was a big crowd, but there was not always much violence. However there were occasional bouts of madness, such as the time two supporters cleared the Blackburn End perimeter wall to attack the opposition goalkeeper. For the 1971 "friendly" Burnley fixture, the Police forced some Rovers fans to enter the Blackburn End and then would not let them past the wall barrier next to Riverside terracing. With Rovers winning 2-0, Terry Eccles, a player who had progressed through Rovers youth ranks scoring both both goals, the Blackburn End suddenly started to empty of a large mob of fans. They climbed the wall separating the Blackburn End from the Riverside terrace and made their way along The Riverside towards the Darwen End where the Burnley were standing. Shortly later crowd trouble broke out in the Darwen End as the Blackburn End mob entered the Darwen End along with Rovers mobs from The Riverside joining in. Fighting broke out with those Burnley fans who did not run out of the far side of the Darwen End. Eventually, the Burnley fans were routed and thrown over the wall at front of the Darwen End, which also collapsed. This incident made the front page of the Lancashire Evening Telegraph for several day. Memories of a 15,000 strong Rovers away support taking four sides of Turf Moor during a Boxing day 1977 fixture after drinking heavily in Burnley town centre and Turf Moor pubs were also still burned in the collective memory of the Burnley support. It was incidents like the above, coupled with Rovers results on the pitch that would lead to a near terminal decline of Burnley FC and in turn to individual and small scale acts of vindictiveness by Burnley fans at Ewood Park in the first part of the 1980's. On 04.04.1983 during a Blackburn Rovers v Burnley Division 2 fixture, protected by the police and the recently erected perimeter fencing, two or three Burnley fans clambered onto the Darwen End roof, ripped 3 or 4 tiles off it, struggling to throw them onto the pitch and instead hitting their own supporters, huddled behind the goal. This was done in attempt to get the game abandoned. The Burnley manager came onto the pitch to address the Burnley fans in an attempt to instil some calm. A solitary Burnley fan had also taken the care to weld together two darts so that the weapon had a double-headed spike. It was smuggled into Ewood Park and hurled into the Blackburn Rovers penalty area. This particularly cowardly individual attack from the terraces on a lone Goal Keeper came when Terry Gennoe was the goalkeeper in a Blackburn Rovers side inflicting a defeat on Burnley that would help send them down from the old Second Division and into a spiral of decline whereby they would not play Blackburn Rovers again competitively in the league for 17 years. Order was eventually restored with the game ending in a win for Blackburn Rovers; to the delight of jubilant Rovers fans thoroughly enjoying another victory of their oldest foe taking great pleasure in significantly contributing to Burnley's downfall and eventual demise that would last for more than two decades, though of course no one at the time realised just how significant that particular defeat at Ewood Park would be. Rovers won the game 2-1. During Division 2 games (Level 2) against Chelsea (18.10.1980) which ended 1-1 and Manchester City (02.03.1985) which ended 0-1 there were brief crowd disturbances along the Riverside Stand terracing and Blackburn End terracing. During an FA Cup game involving Chorley (classed as the home team) and Preston North End (06.12.1986) there were ugly scenes of crowd trouble when the Blackburn End erupted in violence. It is unclear exactly who was involved but the local organised casuals firm known as the Blackburn Youth were believed to be involved; the game ended 0-0. As football hooliganism at Ewood Park slowly went into decline from the mind 1970's onwards, the club also made efforts to defeat the problem and make Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers more family oriented. One campaign revolved around encouraging the already passionate Rovers fans to keep up the vocal support but keep down the foul language. Blackburn Rovers also attempted to attract more of the sizeable local Asian population to Ewood Park in the 1980's with representatives of the club speaking on local radio about their desire for more Asian people to attend matches at Ewood Park. Sadly, this appears to have had little success. There was also an aggressive policing policy inside the ground which in itself could lead to minor disturbances and an iron perimeter fence was erected around the pitch in the early 1980s. From the 1990s onwards, most of the mainly partisan pubs outside Ewood Park have been strictly for home supporters only. As already pointed out, from the mid 1970's and particularly during the 1980s Rovers fortunes slowly progressed relative to their nearest Lancashire town rivals Preston North End, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers and Burnley, which seems to have been reflected in the behaviour of the fans both inside and outside Ewood Park. Also, the 1980s witnessed several events that were to change football as a spectator sport: the Bradford City FireDisaster (1985); the Hysell Stadium Tragedy (1985); The Hillsborough Disaster (1989) and the Taylor Report (1989) the latter resulting in standing terracing in England being phased out, replaced by all-seater stadiums, in some cases completely new stadiums being built. During the 1990s, the face of football stadia in England began to change and with it the type of atmosphere inside the stadia and the type spectator clubs were now attempting to attract. This meant pricing policies that deliberately out priced and alienated working-class supporters; this was done in the belief that by attracting more women, families and middle-class consumers that football stadiums would become safer places. Setting aside the moral question of social prejudice through the deliberate policy of out pricing working-class supporters, it is not a sensible business measure for football clubs to out price working-class fans when those clubs represent working-class areas. However, there is no doubt that these measures had some success but how much, is open to debate. Added to these measures local Blackburn born business man and life-long Rovers fan Jack Walker bought the club in 1991 and Rovers eventually gained promotion to the Premier League during the 1991-1992 season. Ewood Park was then rebuilt between between 1993-1994, with its official reopening in 1995. Burnley have been Blackburn Rovers rivals for much of Rovers history but some fans, particularly newer, younger fans simply ignored Burnley in the 1990's, dismissing claims that Burnley have always been seen as Rovers main rivals. In the 2000's hostilities renewed to some extent and now many fans believe they should be seen as Rovers main rivals once more. However, some Rovers fans still believe that Burnley have not been worthy of such status since Rovers began Burnley's quarter of a century of decline the early 1980's. There have been minor disturbances inside Ewood Park with Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers fans during the 1990s and 2000s but the long awaited Ewood Park fixture with Burnley, the first in the top flight of English league football for 43 years resulted in a major police operation mounted by the Lancashire constabulary similar to the kind seen in Scottish football at Glasgow Celtic v Glasgow Rangers matches; reinforcing the popular view amongst Rovers fans of Burnley as the, "Millwall of the North". Many Burnley fans felt that the police operation put in place for the game was an over reaction as Burnley fans could only travel to the game from Turf Moor and could only travel on official transport provided by the club leaving Turf Moor at about 07:30 for a 13:00 early kick off. One example being of a Burnley fan having to leave Ewood Park, Blackburn for Turf Moor, Burnley, travelling back to Ewood Park, Blackburn for the game, then returning to Burnley after the game before making another return journey to his home in Blackburn later that evening. A journey of approx. twelve hours and forty miles when the supporter in question only lived a 5 minute walk from the Ewood Park. However, the fear of serious crowd trouble was considered very real by the police. Blackburn v Burnley is the oldest derby in English football and arguably the greatest rivalry in the game. There has been a long history of crowd trouble when these two clubs have met. It is the sort of game in which passions can become so intense that not only hooligan mobs or organised casuals but fans, nick named "scarfers" by casuals, can also become involved. Although the view amongst some Rovers fans was that though unnecessary, the police operation was an inevitable outcome of a curious combination of decades of exaggeration, half truths and Burnley folk-lore. This was the culture of the Burnley bogey-man myth; involving dare-and-do invasions of Blackburn town centre, Ewood Park and attacks upon meek Rovers fans, which can be traced back to the pubs, school yards and terraced streets of Burnley. One theory to this phenomenon is that such tales of extravagance were the consequence of Burnley followers attempting to maintain their profile and that of Burnley FC as their club plummeted to new depths of lower league mediocrity during the 1980's, which began with their defeat to Rovers during the Easter, 1983 fixture which resulted in crowd trouble inside Ewood Park. The feeling amongst Rovers fans was that this kind of bankrupt boasting had led to a self fulfilling prophecy in which Burnley fans and their Premier League era hangers on had talked themselves into their own awkward situation, to the obvious despair of the Burnley fans, although faint amusement of many Rovers fans. Rovers fans also feel that as Burnley is a very small football club and as Blackburn Rovers has always historically been a far more successful football club than Burnley with a national and international profile befitting the historical stature of Blackburn Rovers, that the bitterness and resentment towards Rovers fans by Burnley fans may also be more intense for these same reasons; this resentment particularly inflamed by small club jealousy of Rovers' Premier League and League cup triumphs in 1995 and 2002 respectively. As already mentioned, Burnley fans and mobs also took beatings in Blackburn and at Ewood Park (also in Burnley and at Turf Moor) during the 60's and 70's while thereafter very rarely having the opportunity to return to Ewood Park for more than a quarter of a century; anger and bitterness at such humiliations being passed from father to son, uncle to nephew. Both clubs moved in opposite directions during the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's, with Blackburn Rovers, despite intense media hostility and professional snobbery coupled with the jealous hatred of neutral supporters, going on to make history and achieve glory with their Premier League triumph at the end of the 1994-1995 season; while Burnley very narrowly avoided relegation to non league football on the last day of the 1986-1987, only eight years previously. For the long 43 year awaited top flight fixture with Burnley at Ewood Park, the Burnley fans were given half of the Darwen End, with a significant 'no-mans' land separating the two sets of fans and a very heavy police and steward presence for the protection of the Burnley fans. The game ended without incident and a convincing 3-2 victory for Rovers, though flattering score line for Burnley. Despite the occasional incident or perceived threat, it would now seem that any form of serious crowd trouble at this famous old footballing venue would thankfully appear to be a thing of the past.[/p][/quote]That's tosh Im afraid to tell you having been there that the Burnley of 1959/60 were one of the best teams this country has ever seen,much as I respect Uncle Jack your team was not produced in Blackburn and you have never had a team to match the burnley Teams of 20/21 and 1959/60.I accept the late Great Ronnie Clayton was a wonderfull player pure class I have seen him play many times,but when you think of Jimmy Mac Jimmy Adamson RIP and a hat full of house hold names Pele no less rated Alex Elder as the best fullback in the world in 62 go back in time Bob Kelly Joe Anderson Louis Page Gerry Dawson or foward Leighton James Steve Kinndon Martin Dobson It tends to make your argument that Clarets have always been second class look to be somewhat economical with the truth.Look at the amount of games in the 20s they went unbeaten it Took Arsenal nearly a century to beat the record I rest my case[/p][/quote]Self gratifying garbage, i'm afraid.

WHAT A GREAT POST.

I hope KDG, NoddyMcCleod; Li1111, Wild Rover, Haslem Haslem and any other deluded 'hater' out there read SI's post and hangs their head in utter shame.
Why are you obsessed with me? Do I pick the team or something? Did I sign the players or something, I think everyone was in agreement weeks ago about Kean being potted, so why do you keep trying to shift responsibility of blame onto me and others? Are you a nazi? a nazi trying to blame the minority and whip up a frenzy of support in your deluded world of self importance trying to give yourself an air of dominance? Trying to be the big I am, well I bet your a f@cking nothing, a f@cking no-one, an insignificant piece of dirt. I bet you are a STEVE KEAN, a shallow balless gibbering uninteresting tw@t. Thats why you keep trying to attack me and others, because we make your spineless boring existence more interesting.
Now don't bother posting a reply, I've finished with you, you worthless slug vomit
Sick of reading you trying to get everyone to gang up on me and others when we haven't even said anything except try and support the team.
Is there something wrong with trying to support your team?
Obviously in your sick twisted mind you want to torture it instead.
So p1ss off and leave me and others alone you sick f@cking loner.
He had a go at you because you campaigned to oust Big Sam.. Now look where Rovers are going and look where West Ham are going. This time next year Big Sam will be a Premier League manager again, we will be supporting a team possibly on the edge of extinction in the lower half of the Championship. Hope you and your "chums" are happy with your efforts to ruin our club.

Christ, is the bumbling buffoon still here ??

Most reports saying Venkys are giving him the Bolton game as well.

Are these people BEYOND STUPID ??
- don't they realise that every day he stays just makes it more likely we will be relegated ??

Don't they realise that it is completely irrelevant whether we beat Bolton or not because Kean will NEVER make it as a manager, let alone one in the premiership !!

Burnleyglentoran has just posted that it is worth Rovers winning on Tues just so Rovers keep Kean - and from their point of view he is totally right.

Best result for Rovers fans is for Tuesday game to get postponed then the idiot has to get a result at Liverpool and Man U and we save the "winnable" Bolton game for later in the season when we have someone who you could, even remotely call "the boss" in charge.

Morst The 88th Min Heartbreaker of Dingles! says...

Venkys - ACTION THIS DAY -
.
1) Kean wants his pay off - give it him and get shut even though he does not deserve a penny. Please accept there is NO WAY back for him ever with Rovers fans now.
.
2) Put Ryan Nelsen in caretaker charge for Tuesday night with Tony Parkes as his advisor. We need to win these 3 points against Bolton to give the new manager a chance.
.
3) Draw up a very fast short-list of new managers today and approach them in a professional manner with a business plan. They need to be in place in the next 10 days with funds available for January.
.
4) If your absence from Ewood is because you are in negotiations for selling to the Arabs then do it now so that they can take the above action instead. Or take it with their approval for the good of this club you are damaging at present.
.
5) But most of all - KEAN OUT by tonight to give everyone a lift. The crowd will be totally behind the team on Tuesday if Kean is gone.
.
6) The new manager must have the "CV" that Kean never had. Look at the records of the likes of Mark Hughes, Rafael Benitez, Paul Lambert, Graham Souness or perhaps even Shearer and Newell as a partnership.
.
7) BUT ACT NOW VENKYS!
.
33rd Year And still Counting you Sad Dingles!

Think you've got the wrong person, I never campaigned for anything. When big sam was sacked I said it was the wrong decision to do it at that time. If they'd have kept him I would have carried on as always. I must admit I hated big sam football but, there is a big difference between campaigning for his sacking and agreeing with it when it happened. At the time I said they should have waited until the close season.
Others have said on here also, at the time we didn't know they were going to promote the line painter, we were expecting someone like hughes or o'neil so why do you guys continually cry over spilt milk? Sam has gone and he aint coming back, ever.
You never know when they sack Kean the may promote the hot dog seller, or worse still, they may even send one of the brothers to play a bit of fanatasy football.
And at what stage do me and my chums possibly have any say with what goes on at the club, I didn't know I had such power. Maybe I'll start running the first team myself.
Get a grip lad everything is Venky's fault, thats where the blame falls. But if it makes you feel better, you keep blaming those who you can have dialogue with then carry on.

Trying to be the big I am, well I bet your a f@cking nothing, a f@cking no-one, an insignificant piece of dirt. I bet you are a STEVE KEAN, a shallow balless gibbering uninteresting tw@t. Thats why you keep trying to attack me and others, because we make your spineless boring existence more interesting. Now don't bother posting a reply, I've finished with you, you worthless slug vomit Sick of reading you trying to get everyone to gang up on me and others when we haven't even said anything except try and support the team. Is there something wrong with trying to support your team? Obviously in your sick twisted mind you want to torture it instead. So p1ss off and leave me and others alone you sick f@cking loner.[/p][/quote]He had a go at you because you campaigned to oust Big Sam.. Now look where Rovers are going and look where West Ham are going. This time next year Big Sam will be a Premier League manager again, we will be supporting a team possibly on the edge of extinction in the lower half of the Championship. Hope you and your "chums" are happy with your efforts to ruin our club.[/p][/quote]Think you've got the wrong person, I never campaigned for anything. When big sam was sacked I said it was the wrong decision to do it at that time. If they'd have kept him I would have carried on as always. I must admit I hated big sam football but, there is a big difference between campaigning for his sacking and agreeing with it when it happened. At the time I said they should have waited until the close season. Others have said on here also, at the time we didn't know they were going to promote the line painter, we were expecting someone like hughes or o'neil so why do you guys continually cry over spilt milk? Sam has gone and he aint coming back, ever. You never know when they sack Kean the may promote the hot dog seller, or worse still, they may even send one of the brothers to play a bit of fanatasy football. And at what stage do me and my chums possibly have any say with what goes on at the club, I didn't know I had such power. Maybe I'll start running the first team myself. Get a grip lad everything is Venky's fault, thats where the blame falls. But if it makes you feel better, you keep blaming those who you can have dialogue with then carry on. Keep Darwen Green

Venky's have reduced the overdraft, given your manager money to spend in the summer transfer window and yet you still moan. The man deserves at least a full season in charge to see you through this transitional period. It takes time to get everybody playing your way.

It's about time the silent majority spoke out against these morons who continue to protest, especially when their previous protests have never taken the club forward. Its about time they shut up and let those who know what they are doing get on with it. Venky's and Steve Keane have my full support. You won't find me protesting, kicking the bloke while he's down.
Take Owen Coyle for instance, another bloke under a bit of pressure to turn things around, I wish him all the very best of luck in his next game. These managers need all our support!

Agreed!! The club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom. All theories as to why dont really matter anymore. We as fans have seen the club we share dearly, torn apart in 12 sorry months. I have to say today the team looked totally inept. I fear even a change of manager now will be too late. We are well and truly goosed. I sit in upper tier of Darwen end, I made my way to a spot just above the dug out, screamed with everything i have for Kean to be Man, to resign, to F OFF. But he's a coward, a low life a greedy **** who is in it only for himself. He has no shame, if he had one ounce of self respect he'd put up his hands and admit he's not friggin up to the job. I really do think there is more to the influence of Anderson. It is just incomprehensible as to how Kean is still in the job. I'd call on the protest's to resume against Bolton. We are already goosed. Even if we win that match, do we want Kean to remain? We may get the odd win, but the team today looked like championship fodder. Venkys obviously do not care for BRFC as we do. Lets fight for what we have all cared for over the years. We have had our ups and downs, but this has to be our biggest challenge. The very existence of BRFC as we know it is being ruined by 5 clowns. No more apathy. Please all join the call for change. 100% BRFC

Agreed!! The club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom. All theories as to why dont really matter anymore. We as fans have seen the club we share dearly, torn apart in 12 sorry months. I have to say today the team looked totally inept. I fear even a change of manager now will be too late. We are well and truly goosed. I sit in upper tier of Darwen end, I made my way to a spot just above the dug out, screamed with everything i have for Kean to be Man, to resign, to F OFF. But he's a coward, a low life a greedy **** who is in it only for himself. He has no shame, if he had one ounce of self respect he'd put up his hands and admit he's not friggin up to the job. I really do think there is more to the influence of Anderson. It is just incomprehensible as to how Kean is still in the job. I'd call on the protest's to resume against Bolton. We are already goosed. Even if we win that match, do we want Kean to remain? We may get the odd win, but the team today looked like championship fodder. Venkys obviously do not care for BRFC as we do. Lets fight for what we have all cared for over the years. We have had our ups and downs, but this has to be our biggest challenge. The very existence of BRFC as we know it is being ruined by 5 clowns. No more apathy. Please all join the call for change. 100% BRFC

We are probably doomed after the last couple of results. We need to rebuild the squad, starting with the manager. No effort should be spared to be rid of him. A clear out is also needed as the current squad is clearly not good enough. Dunn, Formica, Rochina, Vukcevic add nothing, get them out and rebuild for the probable promotion push of next year. 80% chance of relegation now.

Anyone want a treble ticket for Tuesday, mines going absolutely free.

I cannot go down whilst this manager and these non-existent owners are in charge.

I went down yesterday and the atmosphere was terrible, the players did not have a clue.

When Dunn got injured for three minutes two players went over for a drink on the touch line and Kean did not say a word to either of them, please please please put us all out of our misery and get the shambles sorted, we are the laughing stock of the football world.

SHAME ON YOU VENKYS

SHAME ON YOU KEAN

SHAME ON YOU LET, YOUR INVESTIGATIONS AND DELVING INTO BRFC THIS LAST TWELVE MONTHS HAS BEEN AMATEURSIH AT BEST.

There is no point in keep moaning about Kean he is too thick skinned to take any notice. The best thing to do is Vote with your feet DON't GO !!!!!

USELESS ****!!!
ps. When the chants of 'Stand up if you want Kean out' begin, how come people don't stand up and show the tosser what you think of him?
I can only conclude that the majority are still behind him-WHY?????????????

Let's face it, most of us knew in September we were going down. I've been to every home game and a few away recently, but that's the first time the body language of the players said they weren't playing for kean.

It was so disappointing, people in the Blackburn end were falling out and arguing.

I can take getting beat, but getting beat without a fight is not acceptable.

We want our rovers back....
Before its too late!
Some of us knew shortly after Venky's bought the club, but couldn't rouse the rest of the fans to remove their blinkers, get their heads out of their arses and stop waffling on about 'get behind the team'.
VENKY's are the problem. VENKY's have killed our club. Once Venky's decide to remove this ineffectual manager what then? What decent manager will want to be associated with Venky's and unfortunately Blackburn Rovers? While Venky's own our club they will never see success. If only the fans had been united about how useless Venky's really were before it became too late......idiots. VENKY's OUT!!!!!!!

no ney never says...

You bstrds will beat bolton tomorrow. Whether its the last game you win this season who knows? Coyle is turning out to be a worse manager than Keane.
You will go above wigan on goal difference and will be only one point from wolves and sunderland. Sunderland will begin to pull away once o'neil has had a few weeks with the squad and the money he'll have to spend in jan.
Wolves are the ones who'll go down with bolton. Its you or wigan to join 'em.

Howe the lads
