Rovers will recover from derby defeat believes Bowyer

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer insists the disheartening derby defeat to Burnley does not mean his side’s season is over.

Rovers went down to their high-flying rivals for the first time in 35 years yesterday and Bowyer admits there was a ‘lot of hurt’ in the dressing room following the 2-1 loss.

But with 13 games still to play he wants Rovers, who missed the chance to close the gap on sixth-placed Reading to three points, to channel their hurt into launching one final push for the play-offs.

Bowyer said: “We’ve got to go again now, we’ve got to regroup.

“We’ve got 13 big games left and people will probably write us off from the play-offs because of this result.

“But that’s not the right thing to do because there’s only six points in it, we’ve got a game in hand on one or two teams around us and, as I say, there’s 13 games left.

“We’re now getting people back from injury and it’s important we keep them fit and get the others who are out back into contention and finish as strongly as we possibly can.”

Burnley’s historic victory moved them eight points clear of the play-off places in second.

Bowyer believes the stability the Clarets have enjoyed this season – their manager Sean Dyche has named the same line-up for the last eight matches – is one of the main reasons why they are in line for automatic promotion and why Rovers face a fight to get into the top six.

Bowyer added: “They are second in the league and you think they would get automatic promotion.

“That’s from having a settled squad and you could argue that’s over 12 months now and not just this season.

“That’s something we’ve been working very hard towards.

“You look at what’s happened over the previous years here and we are making progress in terms of reducing the wage bill and reducing the squad and still being competitive. Of the result he added:

“There wasn’t a lot in it.”

With Matt Kilgallon sidelined through injury Bowyer handed Michael Keane his full debut fresh from signing the 21-year Manchester United centre-back on loan until the end of the campaign.

“I thought he did ever so well,” said Bowyer, who brought his other new loan recruit, Millwall winger Liam Feeney, off the bench.

“Michael has only been with us for two days and done two training sessions but I thought he acquitted himself very well in such a fierce derby.”

Neither centre-back Kilgallon nor key midfielder Tom Cairney will be fit for Wednesday’s clash with Bournemouth at Ewood Park.

Kilgallon, who has a groin strain, may be fit in time for Saturday’s trip to Huddersfield Town.

But midfielder Cairney, who has an ankle injury, is expected to be out for another two weeks.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back when they had all the best chances. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.

I agree he has to go, The reason we are losing all too often is partly down to his negative tactics, and picking the wrong team, poor substitutions, and also sending out good players on loan and replacing them with inferior ones ( out Rochina in Feeney?, Out Best , Goodwillie and in Varney?).

Also I can't forgive him for getting rid of Pederson, Givet and Gomes for free, and signing poor players like Marrow, Judge, Taylor, for example.

I've never heard noise like it from an away section, we were immense throughout the game and the silence from the home support when Danny Ings fired in the winner, just as I predicted he would do, spoke volumes.

Agreed, performance wise Burnley didn't even need to get out of second gear to beat a Blackburn side playing out of their skin, we were a shadow of our usual selves in the first half, but perhaps that can be put down to the occasion and the expectation, however the players coped with it magnificently and delivered what every Burnley fan craved, another 3 points towards our ultimate aim of promotion to the Premier League.

Unfortunately for you clowns the 3 points we took off you has also ended your season, in that you are now well out of the play-off race. So I suppose you could say than in effect, we have not only beaten Blackburn Rovers at Ewood, we have also given ourselves an excellent chance of automatic promotion AND we have stopped Blackburn from having anything else to play for.

That must really hurt?

You mugs have nothing on us any more... your 34 year record has now gone the same way as all the others before it in this fantastic season.

Don't crow too soon Super Clarets. You aren't promoted yet and if it wasn't for poor finishing yesterday from Lowe and JR - either side of half time - you'd have been soundly beaten. Enjoy this moment while you can. There's a harsh dose of reality coming your way. And who gives a stuff about the so called record? It only spanned 11 games because we were in different leagues for most of the time.

You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).

Sorry mate, after Rhodes scored you were very, very quiet up to equalising so please be honest about that.

You came to the game with so much expectation it never crossed your mind that Rovers might actually score, even the guy in the chicken suit stopped flapping around and started pecking his corn.

And poor goakeeping by Robinson which I feel cost us the game and was the difference between the 2 sides. Time and time again although Robinson maybe the best shot stopper we have and also kicker of the ball he is one of the worst I have seen at coming off his line. He is just too slow and seems unsure of when to come for the ball.
If we are all being realisiic are Burnely good enough to go up???? not really but who is from this league? Maybe Leicester whom I haven't yet seen at Ewood but this years championship is a poor league and anybody can beat anyone. Fair play to Burnley for getting the result as not being bitter here but I think a draw would have been a fair result
It does look like it will be more rebuilding next year for ourselves which is a good thing as we are also not good enough to go up.

Agreed, performance wise Burnley didn't even need to get out of second gear to beat a Blackburn side playing out of their skin, we were a shadow of our usual selves in the first half, but perhaps that can be put down to the occasion and the expectation, however the players coped with it magnificently and delivered what every Burnley fan craved, another 3 points towards our ultimate aim of promotion to the Premier League.

Unfortunately for you clowns the 3 points we took off you has also ended your season, in that you are now well out of the play-off race. So I suppose you could say than in effect, we have not only beaten Blackburn Rovers at Ewood, we have also given ourselves an excellent chance of automatic promotion AND we have stopped Blackburn from having anything else to play for.

That must really hurt?

It only spanned 11 games because we were in different leagues for most of the time.
You glue sniffers obviously gave a stuff because that's all you've been banging on about.

Given the outcome of the predictions you mouth foamers have been making about Burnley all season you can forgive me for not really being too worried about your latest Mystic Meg moment.

Unfortunately GB got his subs totally wrong again - his tactics are very questionable, as someone has previously posted, why bring Feeney on into a white hot atmosphere at the expense of Dunny? We have seen his subs / tactics cost us many points this season. He should've let Dunny run himself into the ground yesterday - best footballing brain on the field (yes we know he isn't the quickest, but he makes up for it in other areas). Had Rhodes got a 2nd, then I think the outcome would've been different.

Congrats must got to my 6 fingered friends - now you know how we have felt for the last 35 years, and we have had a little taste of how you have felt. All in all, I thought it was a decent game of football (tactics apart) and Dyche made the bigger difference with his subs. Other than that, I don't believe the teams were that far apart, which must be worrying for you lot if you do go up (which I'm sure you will now). I just hope for your sake that your board show a little more ambition this time around and stop shafting the fans by trousering the money.

I'm sure our friend the super-troll "look up Blackburn / WLUV" (who still won't show himself) will be on here soon - how you would love to have an Uncle Jack right now, instead of the greedy owners you have. You may well go up, but you will never achieve or see what we have. No matter how much you crow about it, who wouldn't take a home grown, self made true fan taking their team on to the Holy Grail? If you deny that, then you're even more deluded than I think you already are.

Back to the article.

Nothing between the teams but a massive difference between the managers, a difference that's probably worth 25 points a season right now.

Dyche, experienced, confident, knows his players limitations, has a plan, discipline and the courage to go for the win then once ahead change his formation, even before the restart after their second he had switched his formation to 4-5-1

I really wish he was our manager.

As for GB and his comments above, well, inexperienced, dithering over substitutions, only has one plan, get one up and defend, just about says it all.

Bowyer has to look to himself right now, it's his tactics that have caused us what? 15 to 20 points this season? How many points have we lost attempting to shut up shop when we simply don't have the players that can do that?

The most stupid decision this season was to bring on a Millwall reserve for his debut in a game like this, that was total lunacy, I would even say criminal.

What does that say to the rest of the players on the bench who have slogged their guts out for us all season?

We have to stick with GB for now, he is doing a great job behind the scenes in putting right the wrongs of the last few years, but if he doesn't learn and we are still in the same boat by Christmas next year then he will simply have to go.

Fully agree, nice to see sensible comments on here, not the 'out with the lot of them' cr@p from DD, or the 'my d!ck is bigger than yours' mentality the Dingles now have.

Fear that as good as Bowyer is behind the scenes, we need someone like Steve McClaren / Alan Curbishley to get us to the next step. Experience or lack there of is what has cost us this season.

Good chance we wont be playing Burnley for a while now, which shows how far we have fallen, and how well they have done this season. They are the hardest fans to congratulate, even when we put our hands up and say well done, they still feel the need to post stupid comments...

I think there was a difference between the teams in the second half Nick - they never let us settle. Any time we did get the ball they had two or three on us right away. We ended up kicking the ball anywhere, usually back to a Burnley player.

Otherwise, I agree with points made about subs and tactics. Particularly the substitutions, unbelievable. I support GB but I do worry that, even at this stage in the season, we are fielding sides with players who have never played a competitive match together. Having said that Keane did OK but I just hope we can get a more settled side together next season.

I support GB but I do worry that, even at this stage in the season, we are fielding sides with players who have never played a competitive match together. Having said that Keane did OK but I just hope we can get a more settled side together next season. SteppBladder

Thanks lads......35 years in the making.....and it took you just over 90 mins to blow it....Oh yes Gary...we'll get over it alright.

it's just a pity that only one man at the club knows what yesterday meant to the fans and he was substituted....

it just keeps getting better.

well done to Burnley....you played well and at the end of the day deserved winners....

totally agree GB is out of his depth and to bring on a Millwall reserve in place of Dunn absolute lunacy - only on two mins never touched the ball and gave away a free kick which gave Burnley a goal - this is the type of so called class act the GB is bringing to the club - freebies/no bodies and nearly enough of them for the first team and the reserves - not good enough GB!!!

You sound like a Burnley version of TurfMoorTom......

In fact, Bowyer's got to stay because he's improving us. The flux of players through the club and injuries mean he hasn't had a settled team, and you can't expect all the changes to yield instant success. I'm much happier with the young hungry talent we have now and can see a decent return from the last 13 games. I don't see the 4 or 5 wins on the trot we'd need to hit the top 6, but a good finish will show why we can be a strong contender next season.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back when they had all the best chances. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.
I knew their were burnley fans out there with some sense!! You have been very fortunate this season with injuries. We have had injuries to all our key players. If we had a full, fit first 11 out then it would have been a different score! You seem to rely on the long ball with Ings a vokes running on to them. All it takes is one or two injuries and you will sink quite quickly! Having said that I wish burnley well for the rest if the season, and enjoy your victory as it will be your last for say 35yrs!!

Devasted after yesterday.

Despite what Bowyer says our season is over, because we can't string continuous wins together and Wigan are flying and will almost certainly go on a run themselves.

This season was better than last season but I will only see it as the end of an era. Last year Burnley and us were more or less on equal terms, this year they are miles ahead of us. I don't blame Bowyer for this, but he does now have to step up next season. This summer’s signings are critical with a potential transfer embargo looming, and I don’t know if I completely trust Bowyer’s judgement on players or not because his signings have delighted me and disappointed me in equal measure, for Cairney read Morrow etc.

Things really are that bad now. Burnley are more or less up and will benefit from the riches of the Premier League, whilst we may have to suffer a transfer embargo. I’m hoping that we have players in the youth team who will be soon ready to step up, because the team we have now won’t get us up next year.

And please Bowyer don't sign the likes of Varney and Feeney over the summer as they aren't the answer. As stop gap players they are okay, but as permanent signings,no. Any team with designs of promotion next year would not sign these two players permanently.

Just when you thought that Venkys couldn't take anything else from us.

Regardless of some on here, I am still clouded in a fug of sadness and rage. This defeat hurts immensely, we cannot deny it.Can you blame GB? He has taken the opportunity offered to him by the clueless, silent, arrogant Vermin in Pune. 90% of us know he isn't up to the job but fear a return to the merry go round of recent years. Why are we signing so many below average journeymen? Why did he put Feeney on? Its not just yesterday, he has been in charge for nearly a year now.
Will they ever recruit an experienced manager? I just don't understand how they cannot learn from their mistakes. Their arrogance is shocking.

All they want is lackeys and yes men, and that's what they have got.

Congrats must got to my 6 fingered friends - now you know how we have felt for the last 35 years, and we have had a little taste of how you have felt.

Well I suppose we had to lose just to be able to carry on calling our rivalry a rivalry.

Awful performance by Rovers in the second half - negative approach, passes going astray, mis-controlling the ball etc. Our season is well and truly over now.

Generally speaking, the performances this season have been far too negative and we only ever play well in brief patches. Individually the players look good enough, but as a team they can't sustain pressure for long enough. This is borne out each week in the possession stats. To be fair, we've introduced a lot of new players this season and we've suffered badly from injuries, so it remains to be seen whether Bowyer can make them gel or not.

Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership. If ever a club is a house built on sand then it is them. Either they take a big gamble and invest massively, albeit without a rich benefactor to mop up the pieces if it fails, or they will watch their manager and best players get poached by other clubs who are prepared to spend (as happened last time). Enjoy your day in the sun Dingles because it won't last and certainly not for 35 years.

Either they take a big gamble and invest massively, albeit without a rich benefactor to mop up the pieces if it fails, or they will watch their manager and best players get poached by other clubs who are prepared to spend (as happened last time). Enjoy your day in the sun Dingles because it won't last and certainly not for 35 years. Tatts

Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?

And poor goakeeping by Robinson which I feel cost us the game and was the difference between the 2 sides. Time and time again although Robinson maybe the best shot stopper we have and also kicker of the ball he is one of the worst I have seen at coming off his line. He is just too slow and seems unsure of when to come for the ball.
If we are all being realisiic are Burnely good enough to go up???? not really but who is from this league? Maybe Leicester whom I haven't yet seen at Ewood but this years championship is a poor league and anybody can beat anyone. Fair play to Burnley for getting the result as not being bitter here but I think a draw would have been a fair result
It does look like it will be more rebuilding next year for ourselves which is a good thing as we are also not good enough to go up.
So because Burnley are doing so well it's a poor league? Do you realise how sadly sour you sound? This is the hardest league in the world, accepted as such by many experts, why does it suddenly become so poor when Burnlety are on of the runaway leaders?

Incidentally I came on here to just make the point that I seem to have heard something like this from Bowyer before. Now let me think, oh yes, it was straight after your last game, you remember? You got hammered at Bolton. At least it makes a change from his usual, "We will take the positives from this". Honestly, the man is a boring, clueless non-manager and I'm so glad you have him, like so many before him he wouldn't get a job at any other club.

6. You have to be promoted this season at all costs or you WILL face financial oblivion.
7. You have no chance of promotion this season.
8. You will have a transfer embargo next season.
9. Your 34 year urine stained comfort blanket has been ripped from you in the cruellest way possible by defeat at Ewood to Burnley.
10. You are STILL looking up in awe at the Clarets, a massive 23 (TWENTY-THREE) points and 29 (TWENTY-NINE) goals behind us.

You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).
Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?
I know why it was half-filled. No need to SHOUT and be abusive. However, the fact is it WAS half-filled and I’ve been on Ewood on many occasions when it has been filled with really noisy away fans that didn't go quiet when we scored first. Yesterday, it was quiet for most of the game. If SC has never heard noise like that from an away section he must have very little experience. I thought the 21.5K gate was good, considering.

Final word says...

A lot of people are letting their hearts rule their head. Yes we lost but there wasn't much in the game. I agree with a lot of people that the Burnley fans weren't the loudest, before KO and when they scored is only when they really sang. They were really rattled in the first half, we needed to finish it off then. You could see Dyche giving 'calm down' signals a lot in the first half which to be fair was decent management as he knew if he could keep at 1-0 he could regroup at half time. He came out on top in the second half against GB's tactics but as I said not much in it really.

I would give Bowyer one more season, we are still in transition. He saved us from relegation last season, he is consolidating this season and we should be looking for a promotion challenge next season.

A lot of people are letting their hearts rule their head. Yes we lost but there wasn't much in the game. I agree with a lot of people that the Burnley fans weren't the loudest, before KO and when they scored is only when they really sang. They were really rattled in the first half, we needed to finish it off then. You could see Dyche giving 'calm down' signals a lot in the first half which to be fair was decent management as he knew if he could keep at 1-0 he could regroup at half time. He came out on top in the second half against GB's tactics but as I said not much in it really. I would give Bowyer one more season, we are still in transition. He saved us from relegation last season, he is consolidating this season and we should be looking for a promotion challenge next season.

Nothing between the teams but a massive difference between the managers, a difference that's probably worth 25 points a season right now.

Dyche, experienced, confident, knows his players limitations, has a plan, discipline and the courage to go for the win then once ahead change his formation, even before the restart after their second he had switched his formation to 4-5-1

I really wish he was our manager.

As for GB and his comments above, well, inexperienced, dithering over substitutions, only has one plan, get one up and defend, just about says it all.

Bowyer has to look to himself right now, it's his tactics that have caused us what? 15 to 20 points this season? How many points have we lost attempting to shut up shop when we simply don't have the players that can do that?

The most stupid decision this season was to bring on a Millwall reserve for his debut in a game like this, that was total lunacy, I would even say criminal.

What does that say to the rest of the players on the bench who have slogged their guts out for us all season?

We have to stick with GB for now, he is doing a great job behind the scenes in putting right the wrongs of the last few years, but if he doesn't learn and we are still in the same boat by Christmas next year then he will simply have to go.
Interesting comment but Dyche is not that experienced. He is just good. He has the connections and is always wanting to learn and improve himself and his management team and of course ultimately the team on the pitch. What they have started to do is win when not playing at their best – like yesterday. He changed it for the better whereas maybe GB didn’t.

Fully agree, nice to see sensible comments on here, not the 'out with the lot of them' cr@p from DD, or the 'my d!ck is bigger than yours' mentality the Dingles now have.

Fear that as good as Bowyer is behind the scenes, we need someone like Steve McClaren / Alan Curbishley to get us to the next step. Experience or lack there of is what has cost us this season.

Good chance we wont be playing Burnley for a while now, which shows how far we have fallen, and how well they have done this season. They are the hardest fans to congratulate, even when we put our hands up and say well done, they still feel the need to post stupid comments...
That's because some of us see through the false congratulations and best wishes.

Some of the comments are coming from the same weasels who lorded it over us in the run up to the derby, with the classic 34 years line. You can't squirm out of it so easily Mungo.

We know that you are suffering in the WORST possible way. We know you are hurting and your world imploded when that final whistle went.

We know all this.

The thing is, you deserve it. You jumped up arrogant morons with your league title bought and paid for out of the life savings of old Jack Walker and your 34 years, yer mums yer dad, incest jibes, Dingles, and all manner of degrading vitriol and bile we've had to endure from you low-life's.

Tell me something.... how did it feel when that final whistle went and you had to watch us, all 4500 of us, singing and dancing, the congo in the Darwen End was reformed by the way, oh the utter joy of it all. YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT UP!

Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

Its written in the history books forever no-dads and it might be many, many years until we meet you again.

Unfortunately for you clowns the 3 points we took off you has also ended your season, in that you are now well out of the play-off race. So I suppose you could say than in effect, we have not only beaten Blackburn Rovers at Ewood, we have also given ourselves an excellent chance of automatic promotion AND we have stopped Blackburn from having anything else to play for.

That must really hurt?

You mugs have nothing on us any more... your 34 year record has now gone the same way as all the others before it in this fantastic season.

The singing after that final whistle as EWOOD PARK TURNED CLARET AND BLUE will stay with me forever!

23 points.
5 years.
Burnley going up!
You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).
Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?
I know why it was half-filled. No need to SHOUT and be abusive. However, the fact is it WAS half-filled and I’ve been on Ewood on many occasions when it has been filled with really noisy away fans that didn't go quiet when we scored first. Yesterday, it was quiet for most of the game. If SC has never heard noise like that from an away section he must have very little experience. I thought the 21.5K gate was good, considering.
Aww bless, someone's a little bitter and twisted methinks.

It was a great atmosphere in the Burnley end, and by contrast Blackburn were THE quietest home fans I have seen this season, even when Rhodes ragged one in.

As has been mentioned above we cruised to an easy win without even breaking sweat or playing particularly well - you tried to drag us down to your level but, as always, the cream rises to the top.

We'll never play you again.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back when they had all the best chances. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.
I knew their were burnley fans out there with some sense!! You have been very fortunate this season with injuries. We have had injuries to all our key players. If we had a full, fit first 11 out then it would have been a different score! You seem to rely on the long ball with Ings a vokes running on to them. All it takes is one or two injuries and you will sink quite quickly! Having said that I wish burnley well for the rest if the season, and enjoy your victory as it will be your last for say 35yrs!!
You should think about why Burnley have not had injuries and if you do you might just realize that there is more to it like good training, diet etc. All stemming from good management. I am fed of hearing this lucky thing cut it out and accept that Dyche is a master technician.

Also don't let the Burnley fans influence your decisions, yes they are going to gloat but we would do the same - just a bit of banter. A quote from someone commenting on a skysports article below:

'spurs fans need to realise you cant keep sacking managers when things look abit dull, as a Liverpool fan we didn't have the best of seasons in Rodgers first season but we stuck by him and now look.'

We have to see the bigger picture and stay behind Gary and the team, a lot of changes is going to make consistency harder (that's whay Tottenhams results are up and down due to the turn around of players). As I said above we need to stick behind Gary for one more season, Burnley have benefitted from settled side and so can we if we are patient.

I have to say that the criticism of Bowyer is being seen in a most unfavourable light because of the success of Sean Dyche. He inherited a shocking state of affairs at Blackburn and has had to jettison players to reduce the wage bill (probably under orders) and bring in low cost players. He has had some success with some but not all. But a team can’t be changed wholesale and be a success in one season – even spending millions. So he has had an enviable task. Unfortunately for him he doesn’t seem to have the personality required.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.[/p][/quote]I knew their were burnley fans out there with some sense!! You have been very fortunate this season with injuries. We have had injuries to all our key players. If we had a full, fit first 11 out then it would have been a different score! You seem to rely on the long ball with Ings a vokes running on to them. All it takes is one or two injuries and you will sink quite quickly! Having said that I wish burnley well for the rest if the season, and enjoy your victory as it will be your last for say 35yrs!![/p][/quote]You should think about why Burnley have not had injuries and if you do you might just realize that there is more to it like good training, diet etc. All stemming from good management. I am fed of hearing this lucky thing cut it out and accept that Dyche is a master technician.[/p][/quote]Or we're lucky. Time will tell. TurfMoorTom

Agreed, performance wise Burnley didn't even need to get out of second gear to beat a Blackburn side playing out of their skin, we were a shadow of our usual selves in the first half, but perhaps that can be put down to the occasion and the expectation, however the players coped with it magnificently and delivered what every Burnley fan craved, another 3 points towards our ultimate aim of promotion to the Premier League.

Unfortunately for you clowns the 3 points we took off you has also ended your season, in that you are now well out of the play-off race. So I suppose you could say than in effect, we have not only beaten Blackburn Rovers at Ewood, we have also given ourselves an excellent chance of automatic promotion AND we have stopped Blackburn from having anything else to play for.

That must really hurt?

You mugs have nothing on us any more... your 34 year record has now gone the same way as all the others before it in this fantastic season.

The singing after that final whistle as EWOOD PARK TURNED CLARET AND BLUE will stay with me forever!

23 points.

Burnley going up!
You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).
Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?
I know why it was half-filled. No need to SHOUT and be abusive. However, the fact is it WAS half-filled and I’ve been on Ewood on many occasions when it has been filled with really noisy away fans that didn't go quiet when we scored first. Yesterday, it was quiet for most of the game. If SC has never heard noise like that from an away section he must have very little experience. I thought the 21.5K gate was good, considering.
Sorry for the "abuse" (I'm having a strange day). Not like me to do that, however there was no problem with the atmosphere in the Darwen end. The really annoying thing is, and I don't blame your club because like any they need the money, it's probably the over zealous policing arrangements, but we could probably have filled the Darwen end and then some had we had the tickets. It's time for this nonsense to stop. It's slowly killing the derby. That is probably why you only sold just over half your allocation at Burnley, because you weren't having a great season and I think people are getting sick and tired of the hassle of attending this game. Had we been in your situation leaguewise we probably wouldn't have sold all ours either.

Well I suppose we had to lose just to be able to carry on calling our rivalry a rivalry.

Awful performance by Rovers in the second half - negative approach, passes going astray, mis-controlling the ball etc. Our season is well and truly over now.

Generally speaking, the performances this season have been far too negative and we only ever play well in brief patches. Individually the players look good enough, but as a team they can't sustain pressure for long enough. This is borne out each week in the possession stats. To be fair, we've introduced a lot of new players this season and we've suffered badly from injuries, so it remains to be seen whether Bowyer can make them gel or not.

Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership. If ever a club is a house built on sand then it is them. Either they take a big gamble and invest massively, albeit without a rich benefactor to mop up the pieces if it fails, or they will watch their manager and best players get poached by other clubs who are prepared to spend (as happened last time). Enjoy your day in the sun Dingles because it won't last and certainly not for 35 years.
"Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership."

You're 56.5 million in debt.
If we go up we will be £120 million richer.
If we come down again we will benefit from £60million in parachute payments over 4 years.

If we spent a year in the Premier League when we returned to the Championship we'd have a solid, improved squad of players retained with relegation clauses in their contracts and the will to challenge at the top once again. We learnt all we needed to in 2009. This is a completely different Burnley on and off the pitch. We have the foundations in place to step up to the Premier League but we will be sensible in our approach.

At this time you will be SEVERELY restricted financially, down to your last season of parachute payments, still under transfer embargo, and desperately trying to avoid relegation to League One, if you're not already there by then. I actually believe you will be relegated next season as the financial issues will cripple your club and force restructuring to a level that is unsustainable in the Championship.

You will be stripped to the bare bones this summer and cannot invest in the quality of player required to mount any kind of challenge in the Championship. You will only be able to pay peanuts, and if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

We will certainly enjoy every minute of our "season in the sun" should it happen.... but don't bet on us coming straight back down again, we might just surprise a few. Look at Southampton, and Hull and Swansea.

To be fair, yesterday’s game could have gone either way and should Rhodes have scored rather than hit the post then I suspect we’d have lost. They put Ings clean through for charity and he didn’t score which answers our crowing about Williamsons late tackle at t’Turf.

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back when they had all the best chances. What went wrong for them was introducing an unknown Millwall squad player, unnecessarily signed 2 days earlier, into the key point of a white hot derby

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.

You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).
Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?
Ewood Park Capacity: 31,367
Attendance vs Burnley: 21,589
Burnley sold-out allocation: 4,500
Darwen End Capacity: 8000
Blackburn fans: 17,089
Available Blackburn seats: 31,367 - 8,000 = 23,367
Empy Blackburn seats: 23,367 - 17,089 = 6,278

Question for the no-dads.... Can you explain why you couldn't sell 6,278 tickets for the biggest game in your modern history, your cup final, the only game that really mattered to you this season?

What a shambles.

Can you explain why you couldn't sell 6,278 tickets for the biggest game in your modern history, your cup final, the only game that really mattered to you this season? What a shambles. Super_Clarets

Had Rhodes got a 2nd, then I think the outcome would've been different.

Congrats must got to my 6 fingered friends - now you know how we have felt for the last 35 years, and we have had a little taste of how you have felt. All in all, I thought it was a decent game of football (tactics apart) and Dyche made the bigger difference with his subs. Other than that, I don't believe the teams were that far apart, which must be worrying for you lot if you do go up (which I'm sure you will now). I just hope for your sake that your board show a little more ambition this time around and stop shafting the fans by trousering the money.

I'm sure our friend the super-troll "look up Blackburn / WLUV" (who still won't show himself) will be on here soon - how you would love to have an Uncle Jack right now, instead of the greedy owners you have. You may well go up, but you will never achieve or see what we have. No matter how much you crow about it, who wouldn't take a home grown, self made true fan taking their team on to the Holy Grail? If you deny that, then you're even more deluded than I think you already are.
Bitter much are we?

Blackburn......GOT BEAT.....AT EWOOD PARK.......by Burnley!!!

34 years? GONE!

Wind your neck in you mug.

23 points.
29 goals.
5 years.
Burnley going up!
Ok, so you're back with yet another new name.

Can you honestly say that B@rnley were head and shoulders above Rovers? Managerially and tactics, then yes.

Does my post sound bitter or is it that your brain is so juvenile and tainted and poisoned by your obsession of Rovers?

I congratulate the sensible majority of Burnley fans on their win and impending promotion, but the thuggish minority (including invisible keyboard warrior Trolls such as you) deserve no respect - you are not worthy of being called a Football Fan. You are a disgrace to the human race.

Awful performance by Rovers in the second half - negative approach, passes going astray, mis-controlling the ball etc. Our season is well and truly over now.

Generally speaking, the performances this season have been far too negative and we only ever play well in brief patches. Individually the players look good enough, but as a team they can't sustain pressure for long enough. This is borne out each week in the possession stats. To be fair, we've introduced a lot of new players this season and we've suffered badly from injuries, so it remains to be seen whether Bowyer can make them gel or not.

Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership. If ever a club is a house built on sand then it is them. Either they take a big gamble and invest massively, albeit without a rich benefactor to mop up the pieces if it fails, or they will watch their manager and best players get poached by other clubs who are prepared to spend (as happened last time). Enjoy your day in the sun Dingles because it won't last and certainly not for 35 years.
"Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership."

You're 56.5 million in debt.
If we go up we will be £120 million richer.
If we come down again we will benefit from £60million in parachute payments over 4 years.

If we spent a year in the Premier League when we returned to the Championship we'd have a solid, improved squad of players retained with relegation clauses in their contracts and the will to challenge at the top once again. We learnt all we needed to in 2009. This is a completely different Burnley on and off the pitch. We have the foundations in place to step up to the Premier League but we will be sensible in our approach.

At this time you will be SEVERELY restricted financially, down to your last season of parachute payments, still under transfer embargo, and desperately trying to avoid relegation to League One, if you're not already there by then. I actually believe you will be relegated next season as the financial issues will cripple your club and force restructuring to a level that is unsustainable in the Championship.

You will be stripped to the bare bones this summer and cannot invest in the quality of player required to mount any kind of challenge in the Championship. You will only be able to pay peanuts, and if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

We will certainly enjoy every minute of our "season in the sun" should it happen.... but don't bet on us coming straight back down again, we might just surprise a few. Look at Southampton, and Hull and Swansea.

Take your medicine you bitter b45tard.
23 points!
5 years.
You know absolutely nothing about football finance. Not surprising though, seeing that you're unemployed and thick.

You'll be the worst supported side in the Premier League since Wimbledon and Blackpool. Your youth development is nothing to speak of, your ground is a dump and your training ground is on a slope.

You have two or three players of premier League quality, two of whom are out of contract at summer and may well move before you even kick off your first game.

Your manager still lives in the South and will jump ship as soon as a decent offer from a decent club comes available.

Don't get over excited about getting promoted. I can't imagine you enjoyed your last foray in the top flight and you had a better squad back then.

And remember, even Bradford had two seasons in the Premier League. Except they've also played in a cup final in recent years, so you're not even on a par with them yet.

All your excuses fail to hit the mark because......

1. We've just beat you.
2. We're 8 points clear of 3rd place.

Strange comments from one of the above jealous ones. First of all the one about the worst support in the prem: we weren't last time we were there, in fact our average was only a couple thousand less than yours despite your bigger ground and artificially boosted gates by more visiting fans and ability to boost that average by enlarged attendances for the visits of United, City et al.
Then the usual nonsense about players leaving, manager leaving etc. but at least it's now with the admission that we will get promoted. It doesn't get any better for you does it? Simply clinging on to the same old wish list is not going to do you any good. We may well come straight back down (if we go up of course) but we will certainly not do so without the usual fight and spirit brought in by Dyche.
Accept your situation and move on: just stop trying to console yourself with wishing for that which will not happen any time soon.

Then you will slide all the way down again. And how come you know all the names mentioned above....i could only tell you one name from your mob. Admit it..with out the Rovers....your little club would not even be known. ashman

Totally agree,
Enough is enough.
But whilst Venkys are pulling his strings, i am afraid more of this rubbish will continue.

Can someone at BRFC show these indians the effect of bringing a good manager in can have:

Look at:

Nothing between the teams but a massive difference between the managers, a difference that's probably worth 25 points a season right now.

Dyche, experienced, confident, knows his players limitations, has a plan, discipline and the courage to go for the win then once ahead change his formation, even before the restart after their second he had switched his formation to 4-5-1

I really wish he was our manager.

As for GB and his comments above, well, inexperienced, dithering over substitutions, only has one plan, get one up and defend, just about says it all.

Bowyer has to look to himself right now, it's his tactics that have caused us what? 15 to 20 points this season? How many points have we lost attempting to shut up shop when we simply don't have the players that can do that?

The most stupid decision this season was to bring on a Millwall reserve for his debut in a game like this, that was total lunacy, I would even say criminal.

What does that say to the rest of the players on the bench who have slogged their guts out for us all season?

We have to stick with GB for now, he is doing a great job behind the scenes in putting right the wrongs of the last few years, but if he doesn't learn and we are still in the same boat by Christmas next year then he will simply have to go.
Fully agree, nice to see sensible comments on here, not the 'out with the lot of them' cr@p from DD, or the 'my d!ck is bigger than yours' mentality the Dingles now have.

Fear that as good as Bowyer is behind the scenes, we need someone like Steve McClaren / Alan Curbishley to get us to the next step. Experience or lack there of is what has cost us this season.

Good chance we wont be playing Burnley for a while now, which shows how far we have fallen, and how well they have done this season. They are the hardest fans to congratulate, even when we put our hands up and say well done, they still feel the need to post stupid comments...
That's because some of us see through the false congratulations and best wishes.

Some of the comments are coming from the same weasels who lorded it over us in the run up to the derby, with the classic 34 years line. You can't squirm out of it so easily Mungo.

We know that you are suffering in the WORST possible way. We know you are hurting and your world imploded when that final whistle went.

We know all this.

The thing is, you deserve it. You jumped up arrogant morons with your league title bought and paid for out of the life savings of old Jack Walker and your 34 years, yer mums yer dad, incest jibes, Dingles, and all manner of degrading vitriol and bile we've had to endure from you low-life's.

Tell me something.... how did it feel when that final whistle went and you had to watch us, all 4500 of us, singing and dancing, the congo in the Darwen End was reformed by the way, oh the utter joy of it all. YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT UP!

Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley.

Its written in the history books forever no-dads and it might be many, many years until we meet you again.
A lot easier than watching Man City, Man Utd or anyone else win titles at Ewood, A lot easier than watching us being relegated by Man Utd when Brian Kid was in charge.

In fact I felt much worse one season many moons ago going to Bolton on a dark, dank night in March or April with both teams needing to win to stay up, the game was a draw and I have never, ever felt an atmosphere like that at a sports venue in my life and never want to again.

You know if you can't take honest credit from fair fans, and rivals for what you have achieved this season in the way it was meant then it just about says it all.

Some people go too bar but banter and mickey take is totally acceptable, but there comes a time when one side has to say well done to the other, and mean it, this for me was one of those times.

If the positions were reversed would you have credited Rovers?

I think not.

I suspect we will be playing each other again much sooner than you think.

Unfortunately for you clowns the 3 points we took off you has also ended your season, in that you are now well out of the play-off race. So I suppose you could say than in effect, we have not only beaten Blackburn Rovers at Ewood, we have also given ourselves an excellent chance of automatic promotion AND we have stopped Blackburn from having anything else to play for.

That must really hurt?

You mugs have nothing on us any more... your 34 year record has now gone the same way as all the others before it in this fantastic season.

The singing after that final whistle as EWOOD PARK TURNED CLARET AND BLUE will stay with me forever!

23 points.
5 years.
Burnley going up!
You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).
Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?
Ewood Park Capacity: 31,367
Attendance vs Burnley: 21,589
Burnley sold-out allocation: 4,500
Darwen End Capacity: 8000
Blackburn fans: 17,089
Available Blackburn seats: 31,367 - 8,000 = 23,367
Empy Blackburn seats: 23,367 - 17,089 = 6,278

Question for the no-dads.... Can you explain why you couldn't sell 6,278 tickets for the biggest game in your modern history, your cup final, the only game that really mattered to you this season?

What a shambles.
Ewood is a third bigger than the little Turf.
You couldn't sell 15000 home tickets,i wouldn't start on gates if I were you.
You could fit all your lot in two of our stands,FACT,as you like to say.

Well I suppose we had to lose just to be able to carry on calling our rivalry a rivalry.

Awful performance by Rovers in the second half - negative approach, passes going astray, mis-controlling the ball etc. Our season is well and truly over now.

Generally speaking, the performances this season have been far too negative and we only ever play well in brief patches. Individually the players look good enough, but as a team they can't sustain pressure for long enough. This is borne out each week in the possession stats. To be fair, we've introduced a lot of new players this season and we've suffered badly from injuries, so it remains to be seen whether Bowyer can make them gel or not.

Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership. If ever a club is a house built on sand then it is them. Either they take a big gamble and invest massively, albeit without a rich benefactor to mop up the pieces if it fails, or they will watch their manager and best players get poached by other clubs who are prepared to spend (as happened last time). Enjoy your day in the sun Dingles because it won't last and certainly not for 35 years.
"Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership."

You're 56.5 million in debt.
If we go up we will be £120 million richer.
If we come down again we will benefit from £60million in parachute payments over 4 years.

If we spent a year in the Premier League when we returned to the Championship we'd have a solid, improved squad of players retained with relegation clauses in their contracts and the will to challenge at the top once again. We learnt all we needed to in 2009. This is a completely different Burnley on and off the pitch. We have the foundations in place to step up to the Premier League but we will be sensible in our approach.

At this time you will be SEVERELY restricted financially, down to your last season of parachute payments, still under transfer embargo, and desperately trying to avoid relegation to League One, if you're not already there by then. I actually believe you will be relegated next season as the financial issues will cripple your club and force restructuring to a level that is unsustainable in the Championship.

You will be stripped to the bare bones this summer and cannot invest in the quality of player required to mount any kind of challenge in the Championship. You will only be able to pay peanuts, and if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

We will certainly enjoy every minute of our "season in the sun" should it happen.... but don't bet on us coming straight back down again, we might just surprise a few. Look at Southampton, and Hull and Swansea.

Take your medicine you bitter b45tard.
23 points!
5 years.
You know absolutely nothing about football finance. Not surprising though, seeing that you're unemployed and thick.

You'll be the worst supported side in the Premier League since Wimbledon and Blackpool. Your youth development is nothing to speak of, your ground is a dump and your training ground is on a slope.

You have two or three players of premier League quality, two of whom are out of contract at summer and may well move before you even kick off your first game.

Your manager still lives in the South and will jump ship as soon as a decent offer from a decent club comes available.

Don't get over excited about getting promoted. I can't imagine you enjoyed your last foray in the top flight and you had a better squad back then.

And remember, even Bradford had two seasons in the Premier League. Except they've also played in a cup final in recent years, so you're not even on a par with them yet.
Once again...

You're £56.5 million in debt.
If we go up we will be £120 million richer.
If we come down again we will benefit from £60million in parachute payments over 4 years.

You don''t have to be an expert in football finance to see which club has the more secure and promising future.

All your excuses fail to hit the mark because......

1. We've just beat you.
2. We're 8 points clear of 3rd place.
So, £120 million richer, not going to spend any money on players then?

Not going to give your current players a pay rise to bring them up to PL minimum standards then? They are going to be happy then.

Look at what happens to parachute payments of all clubs that are relegated, it all goes into players pockets who still expect their contracts to be honored, or directors who want their investment back and then do a runner.

£60 million will disappear in the blink of an eye.

You really think that Burnley will be any better off than last time you were relegated? Unbelievable LOL LOL LOL.

Correct me if I am wrong but you don't get a penny from the PL on promotion, so you will have no choice but to go to WONGA for a quick loan of around £100 million.

Oop's, sorry FFP won't allow that, so just where will you get the money from?

Don't get me wrong I am not knocking it if you get promoted, you will deserve it and I wish we were in your position, I really do, but FFP isn't designed to help clubs like ours, it's designed to make the bigger, richer clubs bigger and richer.

We can't fill our stadiums, we can't put up our ticket prices, we aren't going to get £600 million shirt sponsorship deals or worldwide TV rights.

We can't compete, because it is no longer possible to do so.

All we can do is dream, so enjoy yours while you can.

Ironic that he talks about squirming out of things.
Earlier this season he went away on a phantom holiday to avoid stick on here.
I asked him many times last week if he'd come on here if they lost,and he declined to answer.
I promised I would,and I did.
It's a measure of the man that he came on straight away gloating.
Weasels he calls others,he should certainly know.

We have to stick with GB for now, he is doing a great job behind the scenes in putting right the wrongs of the last few years, but if he doesn't learn and we are still in the same boat by Christmas next year then he will simply have to go.[/p][/quote]Fully agree, nice to see sensible comments on here, not the 'out with the lot of them' cr@p from DD, or the 'my d!ck is bigger than yours' mentality the Dingles now have. Fear that as good as Bowyer is behind the scenes, we need someone like Steve McClaren / Alan Curbishley to get us to the next step. Experience or lack there of is what has cost us this season. Good chance we wont be playing Burnley for a while now, which shows how far we have fallen, and how well they have done this season. They are the hardest fans to congratulate, even when we put our hands up and say well done, they still feel the need to post stupid comments...[/p][/quote]That's because some of us see through the false congratulations and best wishes. Some of the comments are coming from the same weasels who lorded it over us in the run up to the derby, with the classic 34 years line. You can't squirm out of it so easily Mungo. We know that you are suffering in the WORST possible way. We know you are hurting and your world imploded when that final whistle went. We know all this. The thing is, you deserve it. You jumped up arrogant morons with your league title bought and paid for out of the life savings of old Jack Walker and your 34 years, yer mums yer dad, incest jibes, Dingles, and all manner of degrading vitriol and bile we've had to endure from you low-life's. Tell me something.... how did it feel when that final whistle went and you had to watch us, all 4500 of us, singing and dancing, the congo in the Darwen End was reformed by the way, oh the utter joy of it all. YOU COULDN'T MAKE IT UP! Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley. Its written in the history books forever no-dads and it might be many, many years until we meet you again.[/p][/quote]A lot easier than watching Man City, Man Utd or anyone else win titles at Ewood, A lot easier than watching us being relegated by Man Utd when Brian Kid was in charge. In fact I felt much worse one season many moons ago going to Bolton on a dark, dank night in March or April with both teams needing to win to stay up, the game was a draw and I have never, ever felt an atmosphere like that at a sports venue in my life and never want to again. You know if you can't take honest credit from fair fans, and rivals for what you have achieved this season in the way it was meant then it just about says it all. Some people go too bar but banter and mickey take is totally acceptable, but there comes a time when one side has to say well done to the other, and mean it, this for me was one of those times. If the positions were reversed would you have credited Rovers? I think not. I suspect we will be playing each other again much sooner than you think.[/p][/quote]Ironic that he talks about squirming out of things. Earlier this season he went away on a phantom holiday to avoid stick on here. I asked him many times last week if he'd come on here if they lost,and he declined to answer. I promised I would,and I did. It's a measure of the man that he came on straight away gloating. Weasels he calls others,he should certainly know. baldie

Unfortunately for you clowns the 3 points we took off you has also ended your season, in that you are now well out of the play-off race. So I suppose you could say than in effect, we have not only beaten Blackburn Rovers at Ewood, we have also given ourselves an excellent chance of automatic promotion AND we have stopped Blackburn from having anything else to play for.

That must really hurt?

You mugs have nothing on us any more... your 34 year record has now gone the same way as all the others before it in this fantastic season.

The singing after that final whistle as EWOOD PARK TURNED CLARET AND BLUE will stay with me forever!

23 points.
5 years.
Burnley going up!
You may well never have heard anything like it SC but I thought the half-filled away end was rather quiet given the enormity of the game for you. Still, a good result for the dingles. It really is looking like they might not **** this one up (although I still think they possibly will).
Half filled because that's all we got in ticket allowance you simpleton. We SOLD ALL OUR ALLOCATION AND COULD HAVE SOLD FAR MORE. What's the excuse for the gaps in the home section?
Ewood Park Capacity: 31,367
Attendance vs Burnley: 21,589
Burnley sold-out allocation: 4,500
Darwen End Capacity: 8000
Blackburn fans: 17,089
Available Blackburn seats: 31,367 - 8,000 = 23,367
Empy Blackburn seats: 23,367 - 17,089 = 6,278

Question for the no-dads.... Can you explain why you couldn't sell 6,278 tickets for the biggest game in your modern history, your cup final, the only game that really mattered to you this season?

What a shambles.
Possibly because it was on Sky, remind me was it a full house at Turfmoor?

Well I suppose we had to lose just to be able to carry on calling our rivalry a rivalry.

Awful performance by Rovers in the second half - negative approach, passes going astray, mis-controlling the ball etc. Our season is well and truly over now.

Generally speaking, the performances this season have been far too negative and we only ever play well in brief patches. Individually the players look good enough, but as a team they can't sustain pressure for long enough. This is borne out each week in the possession stats. To be fair, we've introduced a lot of new players this season and we've suffered badly from injuries, so it remains to be seen whether Bowyer can make them gel or not.

Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership. If ever a club is a house built on sand then it is them. Either they take a big gamble and invest massively, albeit without a rich benefactor to mop up the pieces if it fails, or they will watch their manager and best players get poached by other clubs who are prepared to spend (as happened last time). Enjoy your day in the sun Dingles because it won't last and certainly not for 35 years.
"Am looking forward to watching Burnley suffer in the Premiership."

You're 56.5 million in debt.
If we go up we will be £120 million richer.
If we come down again we will benefit from £60million in parachute payments over 4 years.

If we spent a year in the Premier League when we returned to the Championship we'd have a solid, improved squad of players retained with relegation clauses in their contracts and the will to challenge at the top once again. We learnt all we needed to in 2009. This is a completely different Burnley on and off the pitch. We have the foundations in place to step up to the Premier League but we will be sensible in our approach.

At this time you will be SEVERELY restricted financially, down to your last season of parachute payments, still under transfer embargo, and desperately trying to avoid relegation to League One, if you're not already there by then. I actually believe you will be relegated next season as the financial issues will cripple your club and force restructuring to a level that is unsustainable in the Championship.

You will be stripped to the bare bones this summer and cannot invest in the quality of player required to mount any kind of challenge in the Championship. You will only be able to pay peanuts, and if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

We will certainly enjoy every minute of our "season in the sun" should it happen.... but don't bet on us coming straight back down again, we might just surprise a few. Look at Southampton, and Hull and Swansea.

Take your medicine you bitter b45tard.
23 points!
5 years.
You know absolutely nothing about football finance. Not surprising though, seeing that you're unemployed and thick.

You'll be the worst supported side in the Premier League since Wimbledon and Blackpool. Your youth development is nothing to speak of, your ground is a dump and your training ground is on a slope.

You have two or three players of premier League quality, two of whom are out of contract at summer and may well move before you even kick off your first game.

Your manager still lives in the South and will jump ship as soon as a decent offer from a decent club comes available.

Don't get over excited about getting promoted. I can't imagine you enjoyed your last foray in the top flight and you had a better squad back then.

And remember, even Bradford had two seasons in the Premier League. Except they've also played in a cup final in recent years, so you're not even on a par with them yet.
Once again...

You're £56.5 million in debt.
If we go up we will be £120 million richer.
If we come down again we will benefit from £60million in parachute payments over 4 years.

You don''t have to be an expert in football finance to see which club has the more secure and promising future.

All your excuses fail to hit the mark because......

1. We've just beat you.
2. We're 8 points clear of 3rd place.
So, £120 million richer, not going to spend any money on players then?

Not going to give your current players a pay rise to bring them up to PL minimum standards then? They are going to be happy then.

Look at what happens to parachute payments of all clubs that are relegated, it all goes into players pockets who still expect their contracts to be honored, or directors who want their investment back and then do a runner.

£60 million will disappear in the blink of an eye.

You really think that Burnley will be any better off than last time you were relegated? Unbelievable LOL LOL LOL.

Correct me if I am wrong but you don't get a penny from the PL on promotion, so you will have no choice but to go to WONGA for a quick loan of around £100 million.

Oop's, sorry FFP won't allow that, so just where will you get the money from?

Don't get me wrong I am not knocking it if you get promoted, you will deserve it and I wish we were in your position, I really do, but FFP isn't designed to help clubs like ours, it's designed to make the bigger, richer clubs bigger and richer.

We can't fill our stadiums, we can't put up our ticket prices, we aren't going to get £600 million shirt sponsorship deals or worldwide TV rights.

We can't compete, because it is no longer possible to do so.

All we can do is dream, so enjoy yours while you can.
This is taking bitter and twisted to a whole new level. Someone should check on the above no-dad, make sure he's not done anything silly.

You're soooooo negative aren't you. I wonder if those same negative issues would be bothering you if our roles were reversed and it was Blackburn Rovers who were 8 points clear of 3rd place after just beating little old Burnley? I suspect not.

I suspect we would hear nothing but 35 years, 35 years, 35 years, promotion, big time, Man Utd are our real rivals, and other such nonsense.

Sadly, you're the little guy once again, we've just turned you over at your place and made you look like a right set of mugs. We're heading for promotion and the riches of the Premier League and nothing you can possible claim can take the shine of this season, you are simply very bitter and very jealous of us.

FFP is certainly designed to help clubs such as ours because the penalties that the non-compliant clubs have to pay out are equally divided and shared out amongst the compliant clubs, such as Burnley. What FFP does prevent is jumped up nobodies such as yourselves thinking you can buy your way out of trouble. The free ride is over for you lot now, its time to pay up!

To their credit, I didn’t see either team try and play it out (even though we probably should have once 2-1 up) and not sure what the Rovers fans are going on about sitting back when they had all the best chances.

Have to say I was really disappointed in our fans response and how quiet we were after their goal. A few neutrals watching on TV have since said to me they thought we looked like a team though very average and this is what I’ve been banging on about – IF we go up we’re going to be shown up in the Prem as we know we’ve had our luck this season and with this squad (no defence other than Trippier’s attacking threat) and no midfield plus I don’t think Vokes is up to the challenge of the Prem.

We should enjoy this moment as I suspect it’s our peak. It’s also their abyss and as we only just shaded it and they’re improving it’s doubtful this will happen again soon.

That said, my sneaking suspicion is we won’t go up anyway as what yesterday showed me is neither the players or fans really believe and deep down we all know we’re not good enough and have relied on a large dose of luck this season. My money is on a late run of due misfortune, an injury or three, collapse in form and a resurgence of QPR.

Call me if you like…..I’m just a realist.
I knew their were burnley fans out there with some sense!! You have been very fortunate this season with injuries. We have had injuries to all our key players. If we had a full, fit first 11 out then it would have been a different score! You seem to rely on the long ball with Ings a vokes running on to them. All it takes is one or two injuries and you will sink quite quickly! Having said that I wish burnley well for the rest if the season, and enjoy your victory as it will be your last for say 35yrs!!
You should think about why Burnley have not had injuries and if you do you might just realize that there is more to it like good training, diet etc. All stemming from good management. I am fed of hearing this lucky thing cut it out and accept that Dyche is a master technician.
Or we're lucky. Time will tell.
Why don't you give it up fake whats the point please explain.
