SECOND-HALF strikes from Jordan Rhodes and Rudy Gestede ensured Rovers returned to winning ways after four successive draws with a deserved and ultimately comfortable victory.

Gestede set-up top scorer Rhodes to notch his 50th league goal for Rovers in the 64th minute – and his third in three games against his former club – before he got the goal his outstanding individual display deserved 10 minutes from time.

It was a first home win in five and a first clean sheet in nine for Gary Bowyer’s side.

They are now enjoying their longest unbeaten run of the season – six matches.

But they remain seven points behind the final play-off spot after sixth-placed Reading won 1-0 at Charlton Athletic.

Rovers started brightly and inside the first 20 seconds Lee Williamson fired straight at Dean Gerken from range when he had options better placed either side of him.

But it was Ipswich, who now find themselves five points behind the top six, who created the first real chance of the game in the seventh minute when Jonny Williams breezed past right-back Michael Keane on the byline and pulled the ball back for Daryl Murphy, who blazed over.

Williams, on loan from Crystal Palace, was majestic for 45 minutes in his free role off the front.

The Wales international created another opportunity for Murphy in the 28th minute, which the lone forward headed over after he beat Paul Robinson to the cross, and then brought a brilliant reaction save out of the Rovers goalkeeper in the 39th minute after Matt Kilgallon had made a brave, goal-saving block to deny Aaron Cresswell.

The hosts also threatened in an evenly fought opening period with Corry Evans seeing a cross deflect into the side-netting by Tommy Smith in the 20th minute before Gerken was truly tested for the first time in the 31st minute by Tom Cairney’s 25-yard curler.

Against a well-drilled Tractor Boys defence which had kept clean sheets in their previous two away games – both of which they won – Rovers’ best hope for a goal before the break came from distance and set-pieces.

They nearly scored from the former in the 33rd minute when the recalled Gestede let fly from 25 yards with a shot that bent inches over the bar with Gerken well beaten.

Gestede then forced Gerken into a sprawling stop low to his left in the 39th minute, after he flicked on a Conway free kick, and he then had a big penalty appeal turned down on the stroke of half-time after he appeared to be pushed in the box.

The big striker was a handful throughout and, after he teed up Conway to smash a rising drive over the bar, he created the opening goal.

Rovers captain Grant Hanley played the ball up to Gestede, whose delightful, cushioned pass gave Rhodes a shooting opportunity he did not pass up as he sent an unerring, first-time, left-footed effort back across Gerken and into the bottom corner.

It was a wonderful goal, his 23rd of the season and his 138th in 237 appearances since being allowed to leave Ipswich by then manager Roy Keane in July 2009.

The visitors had started the second half strongly with Robinson saving from Nouble from 25 yards.

But once the deadlock was broken there was only one team in it.

Gestede should have doubled the advantage in the 76th minute as he skied over after an overhead kick from Rhodes fell invitingly to him six yards from the centre of the goal.

But he made amends four minutes later when he rose highest to meet a Conway free kick swung in from the side of the area.

The goal, headed low and hard past Gerken, was Gestede’s sixth for Rovers and it sealed their first home victory since February 1.

And, with the fit-again Dickson Etuhu on for his first appearance at Ewood Park since December 7, 2012, Cairney would added a third in injury-time after Keane pulled the ball back for him had Cresswell not cleared off the line.

I thought we were pretty average in the first half but improved considerably in the 2nd and fully deserved the 3 points.
I agree with Paul Wheelock, that Ipswich’s Jonny Williams was very impressive.
He’s only 20 and is on loan from Palace, and if he is available in the summer we should definitely consider him.

Unfortunately, as Reading won today we still remain 7 points adrift and our poor goal difference means that is effectively 8 points behind.

As someone has already said, we have thrown away too many points this season through a combination of poor tactics, poor team selection, poor substitutions etc.
As a result we face a 3rd season in the Championship.

Another good win against one of the stronger Championship sides and more reasons to believe that with a couple of tweaks, including a quality right back, we will be right up there next season.
Rhodes and Gestede will be a formidable partnership and it was refreshing to see Etuhu back on the pitch. Fully fit and fully motivated he could be the strong, controlling midfielder we have been lacking.
I am not too disappointed to miss out on promotion this season as, like Burnley, we are not yet ready for the Premiership and I would hate to see the Glitterballs back so soon. Hopefully, by the time we have returned to the Premiership, they will have found another website to whinge on when they finally realise that real fans don't care what they think.

A good win against a decent side in Ipswich. Great to see Rhodes and Rudi together at last with Conway supplying the ammo. We are in a far, far better place than this time last season and if we can strengthen the centre of defence and at right back we can have a far better and more consistent season next year. For me we need a Berg or a Short figure to play alongside Hanley and develop him and control the back line. A welcome 3 points so let's enjoy the end of the season and really look forward to next term, this has beena season for rebuilding and learning so job well done.

We are 10 points clear. If QPR or Reading make up 10 points on us we'll still be ahead of them due to our vastly superior goal difference, hence the goal difference is worth an extra point, that makes 11 points. Do try to keep up Mungo.

Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill. Burnley will be head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers and financially on another planet, approx £180million better off than you morons.

Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill.

Don't count your chickens before they're hatched, you are guessing, Burnley will benefit from £120 million ?
You will benefit from relegation parachute payments of four instalments of £15 million a year .
Rovers were in PL for 18 years, been there done it and won the league which Burnley will never achieve .
Burnley are just not good enough for PL and like you say you have achieved promotion without financial backings .One promotion in 2009 and went down in one season in 2010 and again 2014 and will be down in 2015.
You have to have a strong financial backings to stay up in PL.
We shall see if Burnley survives in PL without good financial backing.
You don't have to lecture us Rover's fans we have been there in PL for 18 years .
Burnley will never be head and shoulder above Blackburn Rovers
The PL was formed in 1992 Rovers were there till 1999
Only Five PL Clubs won the PL Title
Man Utd
Blackburn Rovers
Chelsea
Arsenal
Man City
Blackburn Rovers were in Champions League once and qualified for UEFA four times
Blackburn won the League cup in 2002
Great players played for Blackburn Rovers
Alan Shearer Chris Sutton Tim Flowers David Batty Andy Cole Dwight Yorke, Santa Cruz etc etc
Blackburn Rovers is up there with the best clubs of PL .

All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.

Thought this game symbolised how GB likes to activate his game plans. Very cautious with a containing type of football at the beginning with Rovers feeling their way in the first half ( bit boring ) and then gradually developing attacking play when the opportunity arises until they gradually got on top of Ipswich. It worked this time with some good football being played at times and playing two up front with the big man being a revelation to the team since he joined us as he brings somany options and bodes well for next season providing the right tactics are employed. Etuhu just strolled around for for me during the short time he was on and didn't try to get into the game at all, I only saw him make one very simple short pass and that was it. Attitude not good enough for the money he is on and shouldn't be keeping Taylor out in my view. But if we want to move Etuhu on he needs to be playing I suppose.( funny old game )

Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?

And back to the subject.

Awkward game especially first half, can't see why they are above us in the league, they are better organised and more ruthless (physically) than us but definitely not a better side, not by a long, long way.

Rhodes goal was a classic and after that for the first time this season I actually felt comfortable that our opponents wouldn't score, they do have one decent player, Williams who reminded me very much of a young David Dunn, might be worth having a look at him for next season, I believe he is on loan.

Although he made a few mistakes (and I am going to hate myself for this) I thought Williamson again had a decent game, breaking up play and Giving Cairney and Evans the chance to play, whisper it quietly but I also thought Etuhu's little cameo was excellent, does he actually care? Would be amazing if he did.

Too little too late for this season I am afraid, three points on Tuesday were an absolute necessity, but that's a case of ifs and and's really doesn't matter anymore.

Leicester have shown the way for us for next season, hold on to you best players and manager and build from there, lets hope we can follow their excellent example next season.

We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill. Burnley will be head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers and financially on another planet, approx £180million better off than you morons. And who know's, if Sean Dyche does take us up I'd be quite confident that he'd keep us up. That would put us in the Premier League at the start of the 2015/16 season and you sorry debt-ridden muppets in League One. Fancy that.
How many more times do I have to read crap like this from both sides,do you not underrstand that both clubs are HISTORIC AND SPECIAL ,Ive watched the Mighty Clarets as champions of England,and yes when The Blues won The title we were in a mess,but at least it was a TRUE LANCASTRIAN and an ENGLISHMAN !!!!! and a real fan who made that dream a reality Jack Walker RIP,to see any great English club in foreign hands IS WRONG !!!!! I detest all of these foreign thieves with a passion The Glazers The Venks The Parasite at Sheff Wed The Yank at Villa ETC
All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
To annoy you. No one else. Just you. And apparently it works.

Jack Walker had invested in Blackburn Rovers from 1987. He took full control in 1991 and, within the first three years, he'd spent £25 million on new players.

£25 million.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League.

My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started.

The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players.

The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo?

Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

If you cheered on Burnley fair enough, but you were one of the few. The majority were all for us folding. I know this and I have heard this from Blackburn fans many many times over the years.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?

Your opinions mean absolutely nothing to Rovers fans.

Cry about it all you want but 'look up' has a point.

FACT is you are in debt & Bly have turned a profit.

You are mid table & Bly are pressing for promotion.

You have an appalling set of owners & no management structure. Bly are a well structured & balanced club.

Yes you may have 'bought' the title 20 yrs ago but that was 20 yrs ago. Football is about the here and now. If you don't believe me look at how much abuse Moyes has had at UTD.

Once FFP & transfer embargo has finished with you I honestly fear for your future survival.

All this stupid childish **** between Backburn and Burnley is a total irrelevance. The strategy of our club has nothing to do with what Burnley or Millwall achieve. Our focus should be on what Blacburn can, and WILL achieve. Burnley may well make it into next year's Premiership but they will not win it. WE DID. Burnley never will. IF YOU WANT TO FOCUS ON BRAGGING RIGHTS, JUST FOCUS ON THAT ONE.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League. My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started. The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players. The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo? Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill.

And who know's, if Sean Dyche does take us up I'd be quite confident that he'd keep us up. That would put us in the Premier League at the start of the 2015/16 season and you sorry debt-ridden muppets in League One. Fancy that.
Burnley deserve promotion. Can't help thinking you're comparing apples and pears though. Two entirely different sets of circumstance have led to the situations you describe.

Burnley have played well this season. The table doesn't lie. I suspect you may face similar concerns with your manager as his stock is rising. The REAL test though is how he and the Burnley board fare in the top flight - a very different challenge. The Ginger Mourinho may find that the injury gods may be less kind him also.

Football is great because it stirs the emotions and passion. Every fan wants to share in the fun and excitement of promotion - especially via an automatic berth.

The educated mind will recognise that Burnley have punched well above their weight this season. This doesn't mean they haven't played well and have been lucky. They deserve the fruits of their labour BUT if their fans were 100% honest they didn't expect this season to happen when it began last August. Hoped for it yes, expected it NO.

So don't get too carried away with it all. Enjoy the moment. Savour it. It will go down in the memories of most Burnley fans as your best season ever. Why? Because it was a promotion season and the first time in 35 years that you beat Rovers. (Rather like our promotion under Souness when we beat you after not having had the opportunity to play you for 17 years.)

Have Rovers had a successful season? I suppose that depends upon how you choose to define success. Burnley fans are revelling in Rovers demise which has been born out of complete and utter mismanagement by Venkys. Bowyer came to the table with a poor hand and an even worse stack of cards and has without question improved things. The mess left by Kean et al was immense and he has made a great fist of straightening it out.

If you define success purely based on promotion, then they have failed. If you base it on putting in new footings to replace the previously poorly dug foundations left by Kean etc. then it has been a success.

Rovers have consolidated this season. Many will argue that's not enough. Progressed we have though. We have and an improved attitude, team ethos and younger squad with potential. Do not under estimate the size of the challenge GB took on. Next season will be quite different and we can expect to be in the Play Offs.

Some Burnley fans are deluded to think/imply that this is domination over Rovers. Don't get carried away. We will be seeing more of each other in the next few years. The quality of the derby will improve now that the whole 35 year thing is done and dusted and I fear that neither club will ever maintain continued security in the PL. Both are likely to become the embodiment of that old Graham & Brown TV advert, "what goes up must come down". Let's hope it's not too often.

How many more times do I have to read crap like this from both sides,do you not underrstand that both clubs are HISTORIC AND SPECIAL ,Ive watched the Mighty Clarets as champions of England,and yes when The Blues won The title we were in a mess,but at least it was a TRUE LANCASTRIAN and an ENGLISHMAN !!!!! and a real fan who made that dream a reality Jack Walker RIP,to see any great English club in foreign hands IS WRONG !!!!! I detest all of these foreign thieves with a passion The Glazers The Venks The Parasite at Sheff Wed The Yank at Villa ETC
All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.

JW isn't to blame for the demise of football. The motivation for his investment was entirely different from the foreigners.

You cannot base an argument on this without recognising why foreigners have pumped money into the PL. If you're going to point the finger - point it at the PL themselves and most importantly SKY SPORTS.

JW isn't to blame for the demise of football. The motivation for his investment was entirely different from the foreigners.

You cannot base an argument on this without recognising why foreigners have pumped money into the PL. If you're going to point the finger - point it at the PL themselves and most importantly SKY SPORTS.
Don't bother arguing with him as you'll just end up going round in circles. The fact is that he's totally obsessed with Rovers, so much so that he devotes his whole life to the Rovers message boards. It doesn't take an expert psychologist to work out that this obsession is borne out of jealousy.

Jealous because we've seen our team win trophies in our lifetime and he hasn't and most probably won't
Jealous because we have been totally dominant for the vast majority of his lifetime.
Jealous because our wealthy fan who backed us was wealthier than the wealthy fan who backed them (ie Kilby)
Jealous because we have far superior infrastructure ie ground, training ground, youth setup etc
Jealous because every neutral fan in the country recognises us as being a bigger and better club
Jealous because he knows that it's inevitable that we will be above them again in the not too distant future

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?
Face? Bothered?

Your opinions mean absolutely nothing to Rovers fans.

Simple question, do you **** with the same fingers that you type with?

If that is the case you need to be careful, RSI can be pretty serious.
Face bothered.
As you have written it in a totally incorrect context it obviously is.

Or have you just attempted to prove you can type with your left hand?

If you change hands now and then you might just think it's another woman.

Missed this one so can't comment on the game but was looking forward to these comments to get some appreciation of how the lads performed.

Predictably it was a slow and negative start, there were one or two promising openings but we largely got bogged down in an uninspiring dull battle with a talentless plodder from the opposition. A nice little solo effort from Tatts in injury time managed to break the deadlock.

My man of the match was Burnley59/60 who continues to demonstrate all the skill and experience of a true Football fan, I wish we could buy him to strengthen our squad in the summer, hopefully at the expense of clearing out the deadwood that is Dave. He has absolutely no interest in moving forward and scores own goals every time he appears.

Sorry mate, you are obviously a true football fan as most of us are and credit where credit is due for your comments regarding Jack Walker.

I also watched Burnley many times in the era of Bob Lord, I had a mate who was a Burnley fan and we went to the games of both teams together and had a great time.

But you are trying to converse with a moronic troll who has at least 7 identities on the go, I don't read its drivel anymore, I just extract the urine as soon as I see it and get on with reality.

If you let it it will just drag you down to it's own level, there is no point whatsoever letting it get you wound up.

Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill. Burnley will be head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers and financially on another planet, approx £180million better off than you morons. And who know's, if Sean Dyche does take us up I'd be quite confident that he'd keep us up. That would put us in the Premier League at the start of the 2015/16 season and you sorry debt-ridden muppets in League One. Fancy that.
How many more times do I have to read crap like this from both sides,do you not underrstand that both clubs are HISTORIC AND SPECIAL ,Ive watched the Mighty Clarets as champions of England,and yes when The Blues won The title we were in a mess,but at least it was a TRUE LANCASTRIAN and an ENGLISHMAN !!!!! and a real fan who made that dream a reality Jack Walker RIP,to see any great English club in foreign hands IS WRONG !!!!! I detest all of these foreign thieves with a passion The Glazers The Venks The Parasite at Sheff Wed The Yank at Villa ETC
All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
To annoy you. No one else. Just you. And apparently it works.

Jack Walker had invested in Blackburn Rovers from 1987. He took full control in 1991 and, within the first three years, he'd spent £25 million on new players.

£25 million.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League.

My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started.

The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players.

The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo?

Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

If you cheered on Burnley fair enough, but you were one of the few. The majority were all for us folding. I know this and I have heard this from Blackburn fans many many times over the years.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?
You need to remove that chip of your shoulder dear boy......wild rover was right....lots of rovers fans wanted Burnley to stay in the (4th Division) league after all you were our biggest rivals ( and be honest would you not sooner beat Rovers next season with both teams playing in the PL) The pity was that the Leyton Orient ( which I attended ) game which you won 2-0 kept you in the the league was only attended by 15k perhaps 2 k of them from outside of the Burnley area!......bet u get more than 13 k next season in the Prem.....glory hunters the lot of you, just over 3k average attendance in your dark 86/87 days........true fans don't make me laugh!

I have to say I saw the game a little differently than most it would seem. Cairney MOTM for me - he's got the skill and composure that a lot of the others don't and at the moment we'd be lost without him. He's the difference between getting the win (today) and the draw (last four). I also thought we looked comfortable for the whole game, Evans had nouble in his back pocket, solid performance from Kilgallon and Hanley. Still surprised Williamson is starting though, too many simple mistakes, perhaps Etuhu might take his place in games to come, unsurprisingly he didn't get a great reception though on his return!

Sorry mate, you are obviously a true football fan as most of us are and credit where credit is due for your comments regarding Jack Walker.

I also watched Burnley many times in the era of Bob Lord, I had a mate who was a Burnley fan and we went to the games of both teams together and had a great time.

But you are trying to converse with a moronic troll who has at least 7 identities on the go, I don't read its drivel anymore, I just extract the urine as soon as I see it and get on with reality.

If you let it it will just drag you down to it's own level, there is no point whatsoever letting it get you wound up.
I agree how anyone can bad mouth Jack Walker is beyond me as a true ENGLISH football fan.I only wish there were more Mr Walkers Mr Lords And last but not least Mr Khan at Accy around to save our clubs

I also watched Burnley many times in the era of Bob Lord, I had a mate who was a Burnley fan and we went to the games of both teams together and had a great time. But you are trying to converse with a moronic troll who has at least 7 identities on the go, I don't read its drivel anymore, I just extract the urine as soon as I see it and get on with reality. If you let it it will just drag you down to it's own level, there is no point whatsoever letting it get you wound up.[/p][/quote]I agree how anyone can bad mouth Jack Walker is beyond me as a true ENGLISH football fan.I only wish there were more Mr Walkers Mr Lords And last but not least Mr Khan at Accy around to save our clubs Burnley59/60

All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
Very well put my point exactly
Those that subscribe to Sky should maybe look to themselves with regard to this 'subject'. I never have and never would entertain 'the circus'.

Anyone that thinks JW created this problem are really not entirely focused upon the 'bigger picture'.

As big as JW was those days (relatively), as said his financial forays into the player market were fairly fleeting in real terms. This in regard to the bigger picture, and the real 'power merchants' running the game.

JW recognised were football was heading (irrespective of him, or any personal involvement) and made his move at the appropriate moment.

Does anyone truly seriously think that without a JW, the game today would be any different than it is, come on ! If so, they are blinkered beyond belief.

Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
To annoy you. No one else. Just you. And apparently it works.

Jack Walker had invested in Blackburn Rovers from 1987. He took full control in 1991 and, within the first three years, he'd spent £25 million on new players.

£25 million.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League.

My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started.

The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players.

The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo?

Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

If you cheered on Burnley fair enough, but you were one of the few. The majority were all for us folding. I know this and I have heard this from Blackburn fans many many times over the years.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?
You need to remove that chip of your shoulder dear boy......wild rover was right....lots of rovers fans wanted Burnley to stay in the (4th Division) league after all you were our biggest rivals ( and be honest would you not sooner beat Rovers next season with both teams playing in the PL) The pity was that the Leyton Orient ( which I attended ) game which you won 2-0 kept you in the the league was only attended by 15k perhaps 2 k of them from outside of the Burnley area!......bet u get more than 13 k next season in the Prem.....glory hunters the lot of you, just over 3k average attendance in your dark 86/87 days........true fans don't make me laugh!
We beat Orient 2-1 you moron. If you're going to tell lies at least do your homework first.

Heres another 2-1 you may or may not remember.

Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Burnley. 9th March 2014.

We outplayed you and outsang you. We are effectively 11 points clear of 3rd place and looking like going up. Next season we may be a division above you, the season after perhaps 2 divisions above you when your abysmal financial state forces the necessary cost savings.

Historically football works in cycles, you've enjoyed a good run over the last 30 years or so, albeit you bought that success. We are now having a good run and with the solid infrastructure behind us, the experience of 09/10 behind us, and a proper football philosophy, we could well be looking at further success. This has all been achieved without a dear old sugar daddy throwing money at us which makes this potential promotion mean even more. You are now a declining football club regardless of how you choose to dress it up and all the signs point to a grim future as you pay the price for living beyond your means for so many years.

Thats just how it is. Some of you morons just need to accept it and show a bit of class for once.

Don't count your chickens before they're hatched, you are guessing, Burnley will benefit from £120 million ?
You will benefit from relegation parachute payments of four instalments of £15 million a year .
Rovers were in PL for 18 years, been there done it and won the league which Burnley will never achieve .
Burnley are just not good enough for PL and like you say you have achieved promotion without financial backings .One promotion in 2009 and went down in one season in 2010 and again 2014 and will be down in 2015.
You have to have a strong financial backings to stay up in PL.
We shall see if Burnley survives in PL without good financial backing.
You don't have to lecture us Rover's fans we have been there in PL for 18 years .
Burnley will never be head and shoulder above Blackburn Rovers
The PL was formed in 1992 Rovers were there till 1999
Only Five PL Clubs won the PL Title
Man Utd
Blackburn Rovers
Chelsea
Arsenal
Man City
Blackburn Rovers were in Champions League once and qualified for UEFA four times
Blackburn won the League cup in 2002
Great players played for Blackburn Rovers
Alan Shearer Chris Sutton Tim Flowers David Batty Andy Cole Dwight Yorke, Santa Cruz etc etc
Blackburn Rovers is up there with the best clubs of PL .
Who are Burnley ?
And what does that all count for - chicken sh1t

Burnley are just not good enough for PL and like you say you have achieved promotion without financial backings .One promotion in 2009 and went down in one season in 2010 and again 2014 and will be down in 2015. You have to have a strong financial backings to stay up in PL. We shall see if Burnley survives in PL without good financial backing. You don't have to lecture us Rover's fans we have been there in PL for 18 years . Burnley will never be head and shoulder above Blackburn Rovers The PL was formed in 1992 Rovers were there till 1999 Only Five PL Clubs won the PL Title Man Utd Blackburn Rovers Chelsea Arsenal Man City Blackburn Rovers were in Champions League once and qualified for UEFA four times Blackburn won the League cup in 2002 Great players played for Blackburn Rovers Alan Shearer Chris Sutton Tim Flowers David Batty Andy Cole Dwight Yorke, Santa Cruz etc etc Blackburn Rovers is up there with the best clubs of PL .

The fact you won a premiership was just a blip on premiership history and a moment in history where foreign fans will say Blackburn who?
It was good that a small club interrupted the big boys party which lets face it is what the PL is all about. Sadly a small traditional club like Blackburn will never achieve this again and as one post put it correctly - it is down to sky sports. The proof was in the pudding when Murdoch tried to buy united and was stopped for obvious reasons.

Glad that you a least can see it for what it is. . if it had not been my (small) club that did it I would have applauded any other.
For BFC to do well next year I will be applauding them (as I did in 70's, as my neighbours -affiliations aside).
Sadly, as you say a repeat of 94/95 is extremely unlikely by yourselves, or any other small, unfashionable, town club. It just would not be tolerated by the powers that be.

How many more times do I have to read crap like this from both sides,do you not underrstand that both clubs are HISTORIC AND SPECIAL ,Ive watched the Mighty Clarets as champions of England,and yes when The Blues won The title we were in a mess,but at least it was a TRUE LANCASTRIAN and an ENGLISHMAN !!!!! and a real fan who made that dream a reality Jack Walker RIP,to see any great English club in foreign hands IS WRONG !!!!! I detest all of these foreign thieves with a passion The Glazers The Venks The Parasite at Sheff Wed The Yank at Villa ETC
All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
To annoy you. No one else. Just you. And apparently it works.

Jack Walker had invested in Blackburn Rovers from 1987. He took full control in 1991 and, within the first three years, he'd spent £25 million on new players.

£25 million.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League.

My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started.

The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players.

The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo?

Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

If you cheered on Burnley fair enough, but you were one of the few. The majority were all for us folding. I know this and I have heard this from Blackburn fans many many times over the years.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?
You need to remove that chip of your shoulder dear boy......wild rover was right....lots of rovers fans wanted Burnley to stay in the (4th Division) league after all you were our biggest rivals ( and be honest would you not sooner beat Rovers next season with both teams playing in the PL) The pity was that the Leyton Orient ( which I attended ) game which you won 2-0 kept you in the the league was only attended by 15k perhaps 2 k of them from outside of the Burnley area!......bet u get more than 13 k next season in the Prem.....glory hunters the lot of you, just over 3k average attendance in your dark 86/87 days........true fans don't make me laugh!
We beat Orient 2-1 you moron. If you're going to tell lies at least do your homework first.

Heres another 2-1 you may or may not remember.

Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Burnley. 9th March 2014.

We outplayed you and outsang you. We are effectively 11 points clear of 3rd place and looking like going up. Next season we may be a division above you, the season after perhaps 2 divisions above you when your abysmal financial state forces the necessary cost savings.

Historically football works in cycles, you've enjoyed a good run over the last 30 years or so, albeit you bought that success. We are now having a good run and with the solid infrastructure behind us, the experience of 09/10 behind us, and a proper football philosophy, we could well be looking at further success. This has all been achieved without a dear old sugar daddy throwing money at us which makes this potential promotion mean even more. You are now a declining football club regardless of how you choose to dress it up and all the signs point to a grim future as you pay the price for living beyond your means for so many years.

Thats just how it is. Some of you morons just need to accept it and show a bit of class for once.
Cycles indeed too. Enjoy it while it lasts and accept that your watching a Candy not a Meile (think washing machines in case you're lost) and you will NEVER get to enjoy 35 years of supremacy. Doesn't mean it can't happen just incredibly unlikely it will.

You deserve your place in the league. You deserved your win at Ewood. Doesn't mean your Candy is built to last though.

We deserved our two lengthy stays in the Premiership, trophies (plural!), FA Cup Semi-Finals and forays into Europe whether you like it or not AND. For much of this we were punching above our weight in comparison with threat of the Prem Clubs.

The truth is the like the centre of town. It doesn't matter how you find it it's still the same when you get there. In this case the truth IS the average Burnley fan's emotional response to Rovers was born out Jealousy. We will meet again and sooner than you'd like to think I suspect.

hello everyone
and congrats to Burnley
as for sure there going up this year
the're consistent and playing to the best of their abilities
and doing it all with a small squad.
and they beat us at Ewood...!
well they deserve to go up just for beating us at home.

REGARDS BRFC
I doubt it very much if we get into the playoffs, this year.
too little and never any consistency...!
Then again one could say BRFC are in a state of transition.
well they have been for last couple of years
changes that have took place
managerial changes...!!
turnover in players...!!
The team today is unrecognizable from 12 /18 months back.
I guess this will have to continue .....
as we still dont have the players that can take us back into the premiership

Well lets hope for better times next year.
come on BRFC.....!!

Unfortunately,
there are many teams in the championship
who i would say are far better equipped player wise to go up next year

In my opinion
If Wigan / QPR aren't already promoted this year
then for sure they will be teams that will dominate next year.

I also see Bolton doing well next year
as they have the players but have been in transition lately
and fully expect them to be up there next year
along with:
derby
reading
notts forest
brighton
watford
middlesborogh
and can never discount Leeds.

and lets not forget the teams coming down...!
the teams relegated will have premiership squads
and even if they sell a couple
which is normal for relegated teams
those teams will still have players who are more then capable
of performing at championship level

Norwich for example have invested steadily over the years to bring in very good players from the lower divisions and actually have a very good squad
which includes a couple of ex BRFC players.

I would guess that Norwich have a good enough squad
and sunderland who will always be strong
due to their local talent base and fans backing.

Therefore, I would conclude by wishing BRFC well this year and hoping they finish as high as possible
but really hope for a fresh new start next year
but at the back of my mind, I honestly feel
that we are still a couple of players short
the type that can make the difference
the type of player that is consistent and dependable

we will have to have a few leaving BRFC or retiring
and we have to find far better players to fill their shoes.

By the way
if anyone knows of a good enough player out there do let us know...!

and finally lets hope that ETUHU
becomes like a new player for us next year
and makes a positive difference as he is capable
but we will have to wait and see...! the jury is out...!

I live in hope for the coming year

Arte et Labore
hello everyone and congrats to Burnley as for sure there going up this year the're consistent and playing to the best of their abilities and doing it all with a small squad. and they beat us at Ewood...! well they deserve to go up just for beating us at home. REGARDS BRFC I doubt it very much if we get into the playoffs, this year. too little and never any consistency...! Then again one could say BRFC are in a state of transition. well they have been for last couple of years changes that have took place managerial changes...!! turnover in players...!! The team today is unrecognizable from 12 /18 months back.

Burnley are only one season wonder, a small club with no experience in top flight football like Rovers and financially a poor club.
Cardiff are much stronger than Burnley and verge of being relegated
This season two weakest clubs are promoted to PL Leicester and Burnley and play off winner could be QPR a club with strong financial backing.
Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill. Burnley will be head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers and financially on another planet, approx £180million better off than you morons. And who know's, if Sean Dyche does take us up I'd be quite confident that he'd keep us up. That would put us in the Premier League at the start of the 2015/16 season and you sorry debt-ridden muppets in League One. Fancy that.
How many more times do I have to read crap like this from both sides,do you not underrstand that both clubs are HISTORIC AND SPECIAL ,Ive watched the Mighty Clarets as champions of England,and yes when The Blues won The title we were in a mess,but at least it was a TRUE LANCASTRIAN and an ENGLISHMAN !!!!! and a real fan who made that dream a reality Jack Walker RIP,to see any great English club in foreign hands IS WRONG !!!!! I detest all of these foreign thieves with a passion The Glazers The Venks The Parasite at Sheff Wed The Yank at Villa ETC
All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
To annoy you. No one else. Just you. And apparently it works.

Jack Walker had invested in Blackburn Rovers from 1987. He took full control in 1991 and, within the first three years, he'd spent £25 million on new players.

£25 million.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League.

My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started.

The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players.

The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo?

Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

If you cheered on Burnley fair enough, but you were one of the few. The majority were all for us folding. I know this and I have heard this from Blackburn fans many many times over the years.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?
You need to remove that chip of your shoulder dear boy......wild rover was right....lots of rovers fans wanted Burnley to stay in the (4th Division) league after all you were our biggest rivals ( and be honest would you not sooner beat Rovers next season with both teams playing in the PL) The pity was that the Leyton Orient ( which I attended ) game which you won 2-0 kept you in the the league was only attended by 15k perhaps 2 k of them from outside of the Burnley area!......bet u get more than 13 k next season in the Prem.....glory hunters the lot of you, just over 3k average attendance in your dark 86/87 days........true fans don't make me laugh!
We beat Orient 2-1 you moron. If you're going to tell lies at least do your homework first.

Heres another 2-1 you may or may not remember.

Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Burnley. 9th March 2014.

We outplayed you and outsang you. We are effectively 11 points clear of 3rd place and looking like going up. Next season we may be a division above you, the season after perhaps 2 divisions above you when your abysmal financial state forces the necessary cost savings.

Historically football works in cycles, you've enjoyed a good run over the last 30 years or so, albeit you bought that success. We are now having a good run and with the solid infrastructure behind us, the experience of 09/10 behind us, and a proper football philosophy, we could well be looking at further success. This has all been achieved without a dear old sugar daddy throwing money at us which makes this potential promotion mean even more. You are now a declining football club regardless of how you choose to dress it up and all the signs point to a grim future as you pay the price for living beyond your means for so many years.

Thats just how it is. Some of you morons just need to accept it and show a bit of class for once.
Cycles indeed too. Enjoy it while it lasts and accept that your watching a Candy not a Meile (think washing machines in case you're lost) and you will NEVER get to enjoy 35 years of supremacy. Doesn't mean it can't happen just incredibly unlikely it will.

You deserve your place in the league. You deserved your win at Ewood. Doesn't mean your Candy is built to last though.

We deserved our two lengthy stays in the Premiership, trophies (plural!), FA Cup Semi-Finals and forays into Europe whether you like it or not AND. For much of this we were punching above our weight in comparison with threat of the Prem Clubs.

The truth is the like the centre of town. It doesn't matter how you find it it's still the same when you get there. In this case the truth IS the average Burnley fan's emotional response to Rovers was born out Jealousy. We will meet again and sooner than you'd like to think I suspect.
SC....yes you're right it was 2-1 ( was nearly 30 years ago) I was getting mixed up with the 2-0 defeat you had that year at the super O's .

Let's be honest here and show some realism ..Burnley have over achieved this season because IMO you have the best manager in the league ( but so was Judas ..we know what happened to him ...oh and Burnley!) he's managed to get the best out of mostly championship quality players!....I hope Burnley stay in the Prem for more than one season this time but I can't see it......a few bad results early on, a few injuries to your better players...will Prem quality players sign for you allowing to bolster your squad? Or will it be journeymen looking for quick payday the only types you'll be able to attract!

No matter which way you see things next season your competition will be stronger.....average Prem teams having the advantage of many season building their squads...before a ball is kicked next season Burnley will be favourites for relegation....good luck you'll need it;-)

Blackburn Rovers is world famous being in PL for 18 years the club has fan base in Asia Europe Australia Africa and American continent.

Have we all realised that the team being put out now is getting closer to the set up we all have been wanting for the last few months and we now seen to be getting results and looking stronger. Cairney and Evans playing together, 442 with Gestede and Rhodes. Lowe out of the side and a decent winger.

Due to injuries it has been difficult and GB has made some odd selections but we finally seem to be getting there.

Now all we have to do is keep this bunch together for next season. Trim out the rest of the players who aren't up to standard (Eastwood, Olsson, Orr, Etuhu, Judge, Morris, Taylor?? Marrow, Campbell, Best, Goodwillie) get in a right back and we are pretty much there. Easy.

The proof was in the pudding when Murdoch tried to buy united and was stopped for obvious reasons.
The realisation for clubs like ours would be survival in the top league, nothing more, and that would be some achievement!
Can't argue with your last sentence but the world was slightly different 20 years ago, small clubs with the right backers, management and players still had a chance and whether you like it or not we took ours.

Many, many more have failed since but as FFP kicks in and the rich clubs get richer and richer at the smaller clubs expense the likelihood of another Jack Walker supporting his local club and taking them to the top diminishes daily.

The realisation for clubs like ours would be survival in the top league, nothing more, and that would be some achievement![/p][/quote]Can't argue with your last sentence but the world was slightly different 20 years ago, small clubs with the right backers, management and players still had a chance and whether you like it or not we took ours. Many, many more have failed since but as FFP kicks in and the rich clubs get richer and richer at the smaller clubs expense the likelihood of another Jack Walker supporting his local club and taking them to the top diminishes daily. owd nick

"The Premier League champions next season can expect to earn close to £100 million in broadcast earnings while the bottom club can expect their earnings to go up from £39.8 million, which Queens Park Rangers picked up, to around £63 million."

"A further 25 per cent of domestic TV income is split as merit money depending on where each club finish in the league, and the final 25 per cent is paid in ‘facility fees’ for each time a club’s matches are shown on television in the UK."

So even for the bottom club, that's a basic £63million just in TV money, with more paid as merit money and add-ons. There are also the improved sponsorship deals which can easily run into the millions if not tens of millions throughout the club. And then there is increased revenue through gate receipts, merchandise, and league prize money. And then to top it off the relegated clubs benefit from the increase parachute payments which as you rightly state amount to approximately £60million over the subsequent four seasons.

I make that quite a bit more than £120million. Probably closer to £!50million, and that's for just one season in the big league.

Perhaps you should do your homework before spouting off about things you have no knowledge of next time you muppet.

Blackburn are a club in decline. Its there for all to see. It may hurt to see your club mid-table in the second tier of English football but unfortunately that where you are. That's what you club amounts to these days. All the money is now gone and you are the little guy once again. £56.5million in debt, losing £36.5million a season (over £3million every month!), and run by the most pathetic bunch of rag tag Indian parasites ever to disgrace the game of football.

Burnley on the other hand, a club that has recently announced a small profit, are entering a period of financial stability and progress. The set up behind the scenes is excellent, we have a boardroom full of Burnley supporters who only want the best for the club. If we achieve promotion we have the vast amounts of money on offer from the Premier League to strengthen the club from top to bottom, and we have a manager who has the ability to keep us there. Basically everything you dream of.

So its time to wind your neck in. Blackburn Rovers are a nothing club, going nowhere. Known more for the antics of Steve Kean, Shebby Singh, various clueless Indians, boycotts, protests, and caped chickens roaming the pitch. A laughingstock from top to bottom.

Who are Burnley?

Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Burnley (9th March 2014).
Burnley are 24 points above Blackburn Rovers.
Burnley are 10 points clear of 3rd place.
And Burnley have achieved this without the financial backing of a senile old man.

Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill. Burnley will be head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers and financially on another planet, approx £180million better off than you morons. And who know's, if Sean Dyche does take us up I'd be quite confident that he'd keep us up. That would put us in the Premier League at the start of the 2015/16 season and you sorry debt-ridden muppets in League One. Fancy that.
Burnley deserve promotion. Can't help thinking you're comparing apples and pears though. Two entirely different sets of circumstance have led to the situations you describe.

Burnley have played well this season. The table doesn't lie. I suspect you may face similar concerns with your manager as his stock is rising. The REAL test though is how he and the Burnley board fare in the top flight - a very different challenge. The Ginger Mourinho may find that the injury gods may be less kind him also.

Football is great because it stirs the emotions and passion. Every fan wants to share in the fun and excitement of promotion - especially via an automatic berth.

The educated mind will recognise that Burnley have punched well above their weight this season. This doesn't mean they haven't played well and have been lucky. They deserve the fruits of their labour BUT if their fans were 100% honest they didn't expect this season to happen when it began last August. Hoped for it yes, expected it NO.

So don't get too carried away with it all. Enjoy the moment. Savour it. It will go down in the memories of most Burnley fans as your best season ever. Why? Because it was a promotion season and the first time in 35 years that you beat Rovers. (Rather like our promotion under Souness when we beat you after not having had the opportunity to play you for 17 years.)

Have Rovers had a successful season? I suppose that depends upon how you choose to define success. Burnley fans are revelling in Rovers demise which has been born out of complete and utter mismanagement by Venkys. Bowyer came to the table with a poor hand and an even worse stack of cards and has without question improved things. The mess left by Kean et al was immense and he has made a great fist of straightening it out.

If you define success purely based on promotion, then they have failed. If you base it on putting in new footings to replace the previously poorly dug foundations left by Kean etc. then it has been a success.

Rovers have consolidated this season. Many will argue that's not enough. Progressed we have though. We have and an improved attitude, team ethos and younger squad with potential. Do not under estimate the size of the challenge GB took on. Next season will be quite different and we can expect to be in the Play Offs.

Some Burnley fans are deluded to think/imply that this is domination over Rovers. Don't get carried away. We will be seeing more of each other in the next few years. The quality of the derby will improve now that the whole 35 year thing is done and dusted and I fear that neither club will ever maintain continued security in the PL. Both are likely to become the embodiment of that old Graham & Brown TV advert, "what goes up must come down". Let's hope it's not too often.
Superb post.

Blackburn Rovers were in PL for 18 years won the PL title in 1995 and won the League Cup in 2002 .
Blackburn Rovers were in Champions League and qualified for Uefa four times.
Burnley will come down with parachute money of £15 million a year for four years.
All the football clubs are in debts just like Blackburn If you bothered to check your facts it's the rich billionaires owners are that are keeping many football clubs afloat .Do you think clubs like Man City Chelsea Blackburn Rovers would survive without financial backings from their rich billionaire owners.
Leeds today are struggling to pay player's wages Bolton were in PL for a long time and were relegated and in debt of £160 million.
Blackburn Rovers were in debt of £25 million before the Venkys takeover of the club.
Blackburn has spent more money than any Championship clubs in the last two season and sacked three managers .

Blackburn Rovers will be back in PL with a good squad of new players.
Burnley has achieved without the financial backing of a senile old man ?
One season in 2009/10 and probably only one season in 2014 / 15 ?
Today a football club need billionaire sugar daddy , look at Chelsea Man City, Blackburn Rovers, QPR etc where would all these clubs be without billionaire owners.

Let us just be grateful that things have improved this season and at the moment the optimism is growing for a more successful time next season.

Missed this one so can't comment on the game but was looking forward to these comments to get some appreciation of how the lads performed.

Predictably it was a slow and negative start, there were one or two promising openings but we largely got bogged down in an uninspiring dull battle with a talentless plodder from the opposition. A nice little solo effort from Tatts in injury time managed to break the deadlock.

My man of the match was Burnley59/60 who continues to demonstrate all the skill and experience of a true Football fan, I wish we could buy him to strengthen our squad in the summer, hopefully at the expense of clearing out the deadwood that is Dave. He has absolutely no interest in moving forward and scores own goals every time he appears.
I was hoping the sub, FR, would be on earlier. I think I would have taken Nick off. He doesn't look bothered.

Constantly insulting Jack is contemptible, he is not here now but he was a self made multi-millionaire and every thing he did for Rovers he did with a clear and sharp business brain
Whereas you, in whatever hovel you hide in, have never had a pot to pi55 in and have the intellectual prowess of an ameoba
You are insult to the human race
Btw, why IS Flood back on the board ?

MODAN comes on here and for once has hit the nail on the head. WHO ARE BURNLEY?
One clever Burnley fan quotes the results from this season like it is a role of honour?
Beating Rovers once and being 24 points above does not make you the best club in Lancashire.
No one is going to deny Burnley have had good season and will get promoted.
It means that for 2 seasons running you have had a better season, no more, no less.

Burnley were promoted in 2009 you goon. We are on the brink of a second promotion, both of which have been achieved without financial backing, something Blackburn Rovers have never achieved. We also stand to benefit from £120million, whereas Blackburn Rovers approx £60million debts and transfer embargo will start you on a spiral to League One from next season once Rhodes, Hanley and Cairney are sold as they must be to reduce your horrific wage bill. Burnley will be head and shoulders above Blackburn Rovers and financially on another planet, approx £180million better off than you morons. And who know's, if Sean Dyche does take us up I'd be quite confident that he'd keep us up. That would put us in the Premier League at the start of the 2015/16 season and you sorry debt-ridden muppets in League One. Fancy that.
How many more times do I have to read crap like this from both sides,do you not underrstand that both clubs are HISTORIC AND SPECIAL ,Ive watched the Mighty Clarets as champions of England,and yes when The Blues won The title we were in a mess,but at least it was a TRUE LANCASTRIAN and an ENGLISHMAN !!!!! and a real fan who made that dream a reality Jack Walker RIP,to see any great English club in foreign hands IS WRONG !!!!! I detest all of these foreign thieves with a passion The Glazers The Venks The Parasite at Sheff Wed The Yank at Villa ETC
All things balance themselves out in the end.

Walkers money planted the poisoned seed that has turned football finance into a circus. Sadly there are a number of clubs that will now have to suffer before those in charge finally pull their finger out and put in place proper measures to prevent clueless Johnny Foreigners from further destroying what's left of football. Unfortunately Blackburn Rovers look like being one of those clubs, but as many of their own fans would attest they would rather face a further relegation if it meant the Venky's depart allowing them to rebuild.

And had said supporters not been such utter gobsh!tes for so many years one might have a modicum of sympathy for them. Those Blackburn fans who wished for Burnley to suffer relegation from the old Division 4 and ultimate extinction are the ones to which I refer. Those who were present in number hoping to see our club die. However Burnley FC did not die, and now we prosper facing a promising future. I would never wish the end on an historic club like Blackburn Rovers, and I certainly enjoy the derby games more than any other, however there are times when a realignment of expectations are required. This is one such time.

We've taken a lot of stick over the years but I am proud of how my club has returned to its rightful place. Burnley are on the up, Blackburn are suffering at the moment, but they will recover in time. Its a bit of banter back and forth. Don't wet yourself over it.
Yes but it's the utter sh-it you talk that grinds, constantly painting Rovers and Jack a s the demons that destroyed football. Utter nonsense
As stated many times, Man Utd spent and were already spending far more than we spent on Shearer and then Sutton in the 90's . The lions share of Jacks money went on the stadium and the infrastructure not on players.
If you are claiming that the money spent on players caused the money mad circus of today you might as well go back to the first million pound player and that was long before Jack and the Rovers ( Trevor Francis)
So your poisonous rants are totally invalid.
Also, as far as I remember no Rovers fans wanted Burnley out of the league , I for one listened on the radio and cheered them on and was pleased when they scored and got thepoints that day. so once again your poisonous propaganda is exposed for what it is
Finally, again I ask, why are you on this thread when your team got a good result at Watford despite injury problems?? I mean really , WHY?
To annoy you. No one else. Just you. And apparently it works.

Jack Walker had invested in Blackburn Rovers from 1987. He took full control in 1991 and, within the first three years, he'd spent £25 million on new players.

£25 million.

I don't judge you on this, if someone chooses to invest in their club so be it, I simply point out that it was his money alone that dragged you up from mid-table in the second division and it was his money alone that kept you in the Premier League.

My point is clearly proven when we see where you are minus the money..... mid-table in the (old) second division, i.e. right back where you started.

The millions Jack Walker wasted on players and their obscene salaries at this time caused other clubs to increase their spending and so began the modern era of multi-millionaire football players.

The other clubs, as our confused and cringeworthy Indian friend so helpfully mentions, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, are all still at the top, so why aren't you? Why have you clowns been relegated from the Premier League not once but twice? Why are you now £60 million in debt? Why are you facing a transfer embargo?

Perhaps, just maybe, it was an artificial position maintained by Walker, and later the Walker Trust, pumping money in to give you a transfer kitty and to manage your debts, when all they really wanted to do was discard you.

If you cheered on Burnley fair enough, but you were one of the few. The majority were all for us folding. I know this and I have heard this from Blackburn fans many many times over the years.

You attempt to cover up that which all Burnley fans know to be true. You lot wanted us gone but we survived. Not only that, we've dragged ourselves up from the very bottom without being given a thing, it's taken us 27 years and during this time a rich man gave you some money and bought you a bit of success, however we are now back where we belong, your money has gone, the playing field is once again level, and we are better than you.

Or is that just more "poisonous propaganda"?
Face? Bothered?

Your opinions mean absolutely nothing to Rovers fans.

Simple question, do you **** with the same fingers that you type with?

If that is the case you need to be careful, RSI can be pretty serious.
Cry about it all you want but 'look up' has a point.

FACT is you are in debt & Bly have turned a profit.

You are mid table & Bly are pressing for promotion.

You have an appalling set of owners & no management structure. Bly are a well structured & balanced club.

Yes you may have 'bought' the title 20 yrs ago but that was 20 yrs ago. Football is about the here and now. If you don't believe me look at how much abuse Moyes has had at UTD.

Once FFP & transfer embargo has finished with you I honestly fear for your future survival.
Dear or dear. Football clubs are defined on their history and tradition.
BRFC
6 FA CUPS
3 LEAGUE TITLES
1 LEAGUE CUP

The ONLY Club to win a trophy in 3 different centuries and by far the most successful town club this country will ever see. Come back when you have won more FA Cups than Blackburn's second club.
