Championship is going to get tougher, believes Rovers boss Gary Bowyer

NO team finished the Championship season in better form than Blackburn Rovers.

A 12-match unbeaten sequence represented their best league run since winning the Premier League in 1994-95 and ensured they came within a whisker of reaching the play-offs.

Although they ultimately fell two points short of a top-six spot, Gary Bowyer was delighted by the refuse to lose mentality his promising side developed in the run in.

It is a mentality the Rovers boss is confident will remain with them throughout the summer and into the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

And Bowyer recognises they are going to need it as he firmly believes the Championship will be tougher, more exciting and more unpredictable than ever next season.

The trio of teams relegated from the Premier League, Norwich City, Fulham and Cardiff City, will drop down with more than £60m of prize money each stuffed into their back pockets while Wolves will be eager to maintain the momentum they have generated by racing to the League One title.

Bowyer also reckons at least four of the sides who finished below Rovers will come back stronger after disappointing campaigns.

“Finishing as well as we did raises expectations and we’ve got to manage them,” he said.

“It’s a tough division. You only have to look at the fact that we finished above Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Watford, who were in the play-off final last year, and Bolton, who have good resources.

“Those four clubs are just going to get stronger and then you’ve got Cardiff, Fulham and Norwich coming down and Wolves coming back up.

“So it just gets tougher. But it’s exciting as well. Anybody can beat anybody in the Championship and next season it’s going to be even more exciting and tougher by the looks of things.”

Rovers proved towards the back end of the season they have the firepower to trouble any defence in the Championship.

The Ewood Park outfit netted 31 goals in their final 12 unbeaten games and finished the campaign having scored 70 times, a figure bettered only by champions Leicester, second-placed Burnley, third-placed Derby and Watford.

The fact that Rovers conceded 62 goals was less impressive.

But earlier in the season they showed they did so they can be sound at the back with their final tally of 15 clean sheets bettered only by six sides.

Bowyer said: “It was pleasing when we had that run of clean sheets and when we were difficult to beat and resilient.

“I enjoyed that mentality that the players showed.

“Then at the back end of the season it was little bit of scoring goals at will at times as we were that creative and that exciting going forward.

“Now we must try to marry the two together a bit more next season.”

Should Rovers be able to do that then a return to the top flight would not be beyond their reach.

They were given a reminder of what they were missing when they took eventual Premier League champions Manchester City to a replay in the FA Cup.

Although Rovers were ultimately well beaten 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium, Bowyer said: “Going to Manchester City in the FA Cup was a special night.

“It was a little reminder of where this club has been and where this club has got to try and get back to.

“People spoke to me about how we didn’t need a replay but in my head I was delighted with one as it gave my players a taste of playing against world class players again in a fantastic venue.

“Our average age this season has been 24 and that’s one of the lowest if not the lowest in the Championship.

“So the Manchester City match was a massive part of their learning development to take them to a replay was fantastic and it made them better players.

“Yes we got beat 5-0 but some of these things you have to go through and use as a motivation.

“And that will be out motivation next season.

“We’re not going to stop at that and we will work even harder to try and get back to the Premier League.”

Championship clubs have met to discuss proposed changes to the Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations after a review of existing rules.

The meeting of the 24 clubs in English football's second tier was held in London on Wednesday and was highly productive, according to a Football League spokesman.

Points of discussion included maintaining a level playing field and introducing more up-to-date analyses of the clubs' finances.

"Considerable progress was achieved on potential improvements to the current regulations following a constructive debate between clubs," said the spokesman on Thursday.

"In particular, there was a focus on maintaining fair competition between clubs, in light of the substantial increase in Premier League parachute payments brought in since the introduction of FFP.

"Clubs also considered the introduction of a 'real time' approach to financial reporting instead of the current retrospective analysis of club accounts"

just before it starts they are already looking to change FFP rules. Ironic that the root cause is Parachute payments

Yes, I too can't wait. A mate of mine works as an editor on MOTD, so I'll ask him to make a special effort to include all their defensive clangers. You could have made an entire 'Own Goals and Gaffes' DVD from their performances the last time they were in the PL.

It's nice to know you'll be showing an interest in your local Premier League team.

Will I be staying up to watch you morons get a tubbing off Brentford on the Football League Show? I doubt it.

More items on the no-dad wish list.... it's growing by the week, just like that sense of panic regarding the new season for Blackburn fans.... what if you get off to a bad start, how long will you give Bowyer? Six games? Ten games? Until January? What about the transfer embargo? How will you be able to bring in a new manager when he can't sign players?

Oh dear. It's not looking good.

12 games unbeaten? And how many of those 12 games were draws? Not so impressive now is it. Burnley WON eight games in a row in Sept/Oct including seven Championship games. We also lost only FIVE games in 46. That's what it takes to achieve automatic promotion. Do you really think Gary "the only manager to lose to Burnley in 34 years" Bowyer can motivate his makeshift team to that level of consistency? Hardly likely is it.

I know how short tempered you hillmonkey's can get when things don't go your own way, just look at how you treat your owners, throwing snowballs at them and hurling abuse. Disgraceful. This gives me reason to believe that a couple of dodgy results early on and Bowyer will lose the crowd.

Should you not be in the automatic promotion places from the off I think he'll be on a hiding to nothing and Venky's will be forced to replace him with a more dynamic manager who can get an extra 10% out of your poor squad. But then there is the transfer embargo to contend with.

You have to admit the pressure will be on him like never before having finished a lowly 8th in the league last time and by his own admission "the Championship is going to get tougher".

I'll give him ten games but I suspect he'll be in trouble well before then. I predict these pages will be awash once again with "Bowyer out" before November as panic begins to creep in.

I'll get the first one in early shall I....

BOWYER OUT!

6 wins, 6 draws, 0 defeats - average of 2 points per game - hardly the form of a team on the verge of doom, is it?

Lowly 8th? Are you getting confused with the Scottish League? There's 24 teams in the Championship.

Lost 5 games last season but I'd be surprised if you win 5 games in the next one.

And me Match of the Day on BBC @ 10-30ish will be great watching Burnley being beaton time after time,can't wait myself,have put a note on the calendar and will see how many posts on here from you??but by then you will have changed your name AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN
Match of the day.

Do you remember when you used to be on that?
Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
And it still draws a wry smile when I see Shearer holding the Premiership trophy and wearing a Rovers shirt on the opening credits.

Have you still got a cine-reel of when Burnley last won the league?

Does it show the players moving around really fast?

Does it have sound?

Does it include a short Charlie Chaplin film before the main programme?

The same Alan Shearer who dropped you like a bad habit when a bigger club came along and then turned down the job as manager?

Who would have thought it only 3 short seasons ago, the mighty Blackburn Rovers humbled at Ewood Park by Burnley and then having to watch helplessly as Burnley secure automatic promotion and a £120million jackpot, in the process denying you the three points that would have allowed you to sneak into the play-off's, and all the while the farcical situation at Blackburn Rovers goes from bad to worse.

The fact that Blackburn fans are now saying they will enjoy match of the day is hilarious. The reality is you will be choking on your own rage when you see the Clarets taking points off the big boys.

Forever in our shadow.

6 wins, 6 draws, 0 defeats - average of 2 points per game - hardly the form of a team on the verge of doom, is it?

Lowly 8th? Are you getting confused with the Scottish League? There's 24 teams in the Championship.

Lost 5 games last season but I'd be surprised if you win 5 games in the next one.

If and when you have a poor start to the season, how long will it be before the numpty Dingles start to say the following about Dyche:

'He's taken us as far as he can and now we need someone to take us to the next level'
Wow, you went unbeaten in twelve games when the pressure was off and you were already massively adrift of the top six, the same top six that you didn't manage to even trouble at any part of the season.

Amazing. What a fantastic manager Bowyer is, tell me how many Manager of the Month awards did he win last season....? None? How come?

You Blackburn fan make me laugh, after all the grief you gave Burnley fans during last close season, how we were 'doomed to relegation' and how you would 'Wave to us from the top of the table' etc etc, the absolute best banter that you can possibly muster is that you 'Will enjoy watching us lose on MOTD next season'.

Can you not see just how pathetic and sad that is? All of you, without exception, would have traded places with Burnley this season, you would all LOVE to have been promoted back to the Premier League, and you all hate the fact that the same Burnley that you have mocked all these years are now well and truly established as THE PREMIER TEAM in the region.

Your banter is as second division as your team.

Bitter Dingle - "Boo Hoo, we'll never win a trophy in our lifetimes, so we'll try to look for a reason to try and degrade yours"

What about the League Cup - did we buy that as well? No doubt you think we did you bitter Dingle!

To quote from the article:-
'The Ewood Park outfit netted 31 goals in their final 12 unbeaten games and finished the campaign having scored 70 times, a figure BETTERED only by champions Leicester, 2ND PLACED BURNLEY, third-placed Derby and Watford.'
Even the highlights of your season are found lacking compared to the top sides in the Championship!

Bought the Premiership title.
Flowers, Henning Berg, Hendry, Ian Pearce, Le Saux, Stuart Ripley, Mark Atkins, Sherwood, Jason Wilcox, Shearer and Sutton set Rovers back a comparatively low £14.7m.
here is the title winning team
There is a mistaken assumption that the club also spent heavily on Graeme Le Saux, Colin Hendry and captain Tim Sherwood, perhaps because they became indispensable so quickly and were sold on for big profit. In fact, all three were acquired on the cheap: Hendry for £700,000, the same price the club sold him for two years earlier; Le Saux, who was out of favour at Chelsea, for around the same and Sherwood from Norwich City for a mere £400,000.
Position - Player - League Appearances in 1994-95 season - Price (transfer record and future transfer)
GK - Tim Flowers - 39 - £2.4 million (most expensive goalkeeper in Britain, sold for £1.1 million)
RB - Ian Pearce - 22 - £300,000 (sold for £3.5 million)
CB - Colin Hendry - 38 - £700,000 (sold for £4 million)
CB - Henning Berg - 40 - £400,000 (sold to Manchester United for £5 million)
LB - Graeme Le Saux - 39 - £700,000 (sold for £5 million)
RM - Stuart Ripley - £1.3 million (club record, sold for £1.5 million)
CM - Mark Atkins - 30 - £45,000 (sold for £1 million)

"Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so. Man U? Chelsea? Man City? Arsenal?"


Man U? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, and have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE twice. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 75,207.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.

Match of the day.

Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
Bought.

Bought the Premiership title.
Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so.

Man U?
Chelsea?
Man City?
Arsenal?

And what about the following teams who threw loads of cash at it but never managed it:

Newcastle
Liverpool
Spurs
Villa
Middlesbrough

If you can buy the title, as you say, then how come they didn't manage it as they certainly paid enough for it?

Bitter Dingle - &quot;Boo Hoo, we'll never win a trophy in our lifetimes, so we'll try to look for a reason to try and degrade yours"

What about the League Cup - did we buy that as well? No doubt you think we did you bitter Dingle!

In fact you're so bitter about it that you devote your whole life to writing on these pages.
"Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so. Man U? Chelsea? Man City? Arsenal?"


Man U? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, and have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE twice. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 75,207.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.
Can you possibly think of a more antiquated reason as to why we didn't deserve to win the title?

If you're going to denigrate our title win by saying that we bought it then you may as we'll scratch off every single name from the trophy.

And that's just silly!

But then if the cap fits...

Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
Bought.

Bought the Premiership title.
Flowers, Henning Berg, Hendry, Ian Pearce, Le Saux, Stuart Ripley, Mark Atkins, Sherwood, Jason Wilcox, Shearer and Sutton set Rovers back a comparatively low £14.7m.
here is the title winning team
There is a mistaken assumption that the club also spent heavily on Graeme Le Saux, Colin Hendry and captain Tim Sherwood, perhaps because they became indispensable so quickly and were sold on for big profit. In fact, all three were acquired on the cheap: Hendry for £700,000, the same price the club sold him for two years earlier; Le Saux, who was out of favour at Chelsea, for around the same and Sherwood from Norwich City for a mere £400,000.
Position - Player - League Appearances in 1994-95 season - Price (transfer record and future transfer)
GK - Tim Flowers - 39 - £2.4 million (most expensive goalkeeper in Britain, sold for £1.1 million)
RB - Ian Pearce - 22 - £300,000 (sold for £3.5 million)
CB - Colin Hendry - 38 - £700,000 (sold for £4 million)
CB - Henning Berg - 40 - £400,000 (sold to Manchester United for £5 million)
LB - Graeme Le Saux - 39 - £700,000 (sold for £5 million)
RM - Stuart Ripley - £1.3 million (club record, sold for £1.5 million)
CM - Mark Atkins - 30 - £45,000 (sold for £1 million)
CM - Tim Sherwood - 38 - £325,000 (sold for £3 million)
LM - Jason Wilcox - 27 - Youth System (sold for £4 million)
CF - Alan Shearer - 42 - £3.3 million (British transfer record, sold for £15 million, world transfer record)
CF - Chris Sutton - 40 - £5 million (British transfer record, sold for £10 million)&lt; hope this helps&gt;

The Ewood Park outfit netted 31 goals in their final 12 unbeaten games and finished the campaign having scored 70 times, a figure bettered only by champions Leicester, second-placed Burnley, third-placed Derby and Watford.

The fact that Rovers conceded 62 goals was less impressive.


Now that is funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Match of the day.

Do you remember when you used to be on that?
Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
Bought.

Bought the Premiership title.
Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so.

Man U?
Chelsea?
Man City?
Arsenal?

And what about the following teams who threw loads of cash at it but never managed it:

Newcastle
Liverpool
Spurs
Villa
Middlesbrough

If you can buy the title, as you say, then how come they didn't manage it as they certainly paid enough for it?

Bitter Dingle - &quot;Boo Hoo, we'll never win a trophy in our lifetimes, so we'll try to look for a reason to try and degrade yours"

What about the League Cup - did we buy that as well? No doubt you think we did you bitter Dingle!

In fact you're so bitter about it that you devote your whole life to writing on these pages.
"Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so. Man U? Chelsea? Man City? Arsenal?"


Man U? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, and have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE twice. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 75,207.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.
but burnley will NEVER WIN THE premier league
even with your cash injection of £120 million
blackburn's title wining team cost £14.7m
not the £100million that you dingle's keep talking about
jack waker built a new stadium
jack waker bulit one of the best football training facilities in east lancashire
jack waker also brought in one of the best manager in europe
AND ONE MORE THING i you spend next to nothing you get nothing back
We've already won it twice, the top division in English football. And we managed it without the massive financial investment that you lot needed.

Jack Walker invested far more than £100million in his time as benefactor and after his passing via the Walker Trust, I'm surprised you didn't know this. His money has kept you afloat for many years.

Walker funded the new stands at the dilapidated Ewood Park, again without his money you'd have a ground unfit for League Two.

Again, Jack Walker did this and he did that, and that's exactly the point. You did everything on the back of fleecing a dear old man out of his life savings, before breaking his heart and landing right back where you started.

Wrong again. Burnley have spent £400k and got Promoted to the Premier League, with an expected return of a minimum £120million. Not a bad effort at all.

We have achieved more than you circus clowns ever have and it hurts you to admit it but deep down you know you'll never see the Premier League again in your lifetime. We however are already there.

Match of the day.

Do you remember when you used to be on that?
Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
Bought.

Bought the Premiership title.
Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so.

Man U?
Chelsea?
Man City?
Arsenal?

And what about the following teams who threw loads of cash at it but never managed it:

Newcastle
Liverpool
Spurs
Villa
Middlesbrough

If you can buy the title, as you say, then how come they didn't manage it as they certainly paid enough for it?

Bitter Dingle - &quot;Boo Hoo, we'll never win a trophy in our lifetimes, so we'll try to look for a reason to try and degrade yours"

What about the League Cup - did we buy that as well? No doubt you think we did you bitter Dingle!

In fact you're so bitter about it that you devote your whole life to writing on these pages.
"Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so. Man U? Chelsea? Man City? Arsenal?"


Man U? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, and have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE twice. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 75,207.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.
but burnley will NEVER WIN THE premier league
even with your cash injection of £120 million
blackburn's title wining team cost £14.7m
not the £100million that you dingle's keep talking about
jack waker built a new stadium
jack waker bulit one of the best football training facilities in east lancashire
jack waker also brought in one of the best manager in europe
AND ONE MORE THING i you spend next to nothing you get nothing back
We've already won it twice, the top division in English football. And we managed it without the massive financial investment that you lot needed.

Jack Walker invested far more than £100million in his time as benefactor and after his passing via the Walker Trust, I'm surprised you didn't know this. His money has kept you afloat for many years.

Walker funded the new stands at the dilapidated Ewood Park, again without his money you'd have a ground unfit for League Two.

Again, Jack Walker did this and he did that, and that's exactly the point. You did everything on the back of fleecing a dear old man out of his life savings, before breaking his heart and landing right back where you started.

Wrong again. Burnley have spent £400k and got Promoted to the Premier League, with an expected return of a minimum £120million. Not a bad effort at all.

We have achieved more than you circus clowns ever have and it hurts you to admit it but deep down you know you'll never see the Premier League again in your lifetime. We however are already there.
£400k?

Once again, Bozo, you fail to take into consideration the cost of all of the other players in your squad, not to mention the true cost of Ashley Barnes.

The fact that your own club has failed to invest heavily in it's stadium is nothing to be proud of. If Ewood Park wouldn't be fit for League Two then Turf Moor still isn't fit for the Skrill Premier, let alone the Premier League. Not that you'd know, never having actually been to a game.

Jack Walker funded Rovers playing staff only for the first 5 years,after that it had to be self funding . He invested in a stadium during those years. He then invested in the academy and the youth teams.His legacy was for the academy.none was used for the purchase of players. Rovers maintained P.L. status by the sale of star players as is the same at most clubs.
He spent in the region of £15m in the team that won the Premier League.Rovers received around £60m in their sales.The stadium cost around £30m as the steel used was donated by Jacks company. £20m was spent on the youth set up,which included the 9 playing surfaces and facilities and future development.
So slippery_clown show us all how you arrive at the figure of £100m also its nice to see your figures for your income in your short P.L status as being £120m ,most of which comes from outside sources,e.g. tv, advertising,etc very little from fans, and you even include parachute payments in your figure,That shows real confidence in your team as a P.L. club.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.
but burnley will NEVER WIN THE premier league
even with your cash injection of £120 million
blackburn's title wining team cost £14.7m
not the £100million that you dingle's keep talking about
jack waker built a new stadium
jack waker bulit one of the best football training facilities in east lancashire
jack waker also brought in one of the best manager in europe
AND ONE MORE THING i you spend next to nothing you get nothing back
We've already won it twice, the top division in English football. And we managed it without the massive financial investment that you lot needed.

Jack Walker invested far more than £100million in his time as benefactor and after his passing via the Walker Trust, I'm surprised you didn't know this. His money has kept you afloat for many years.

Walker funded the new stands at the dilapidated Ewood Park, again without his money you'd have a ground unfit for League Two.

Again, Jack Walker did this and he did that, and that's exactly the point. You did everything on the back of fleecing a dear old man out of his life savings, before breaking his heart and landing right back where you started.

Wrong again. Burnley have spent £400k and got Promoted to the Premier League, with an expected return of a minimum £120million. Not a bad effort at all.

We have achieved more than you circus clowns ever have and it hurts you to admit it but deep down you know you'll never see the Premier League again in your lifetime. We however are already there.
We've won more trophies than you, before, during and after Jack Walker's reign. Keep going though as I'm enjoying seeing you make yourself look like more and more of a numpty.

Talking about cash injections, you seem to have conveniently forgotten about the cash injection that came from Kilby and Flood prior to your previous promotion, without which you wouldn't now be in the Premier League.

Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.

Bought the Premiership title.
Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so.

Man U?
Chelsea?
Man City?
Arsenal?

And what about the following teams who threw loads of cash at it but never managed it:

Newcastle
Liverpool
Spurs
Villa
Middlesbrough

If you can buy the title, as you say, then how come they didn't manage it as they certainly paid enough for it?

It's nice to know you'll be showing an interest in your local Premier League team.

Will I be staying up to watch you morons get a tubbing off Brentford on the Football League Show? I doubt it.

More items on the no-dad wish list.... it's growing by the week, just like that sense of panic regarding the new season for Blackburn fans.... what if you get off to a bad start, how long will you give Bowyer? Six games? Ten games? Until January? What about the transfer embargo? How will you be able to bring in a new manager when he can't sign players?

Oh dear. It's not looking good.
Very poor response - 12 games unbeaten at the end of a season of great change says that Bowyer is the man!
12 games unbeaten? And how many of those 12 games were draws? Not so impressive now is it. Burnley WON eight games in a row in Sept/Oct including seven Championship games. We also lost only FIVE games in 46. That's what it takes to achieve automatic promotion. Do you really think Gary &quot;the only manager to lose to Burnley in 34 years" Bowyer can motivate his makeshift team to that level of consistency? Hardly likely is it.

I know how short tempered you hillmonkey's can get when things don't go your own way, just look at how you treat your owners, throwing snowballs at them and hurling abuse. Disgraceful. This gives me reason to believe that a couple of dodgy results early on and Bowyer will lose the crowd.

Should you not be in the automatic promotion places from the off I think he'll be on a hiding to nothing and Venky's will be forced to replace him with a more dynamic manager who can get an extra 10% out of your poor squad. But then there is the transfer embargo to contend with.

You have to admit the pressure will be on him like never before having finished a lowly 8th in the league last time and by his own admission "the Championship is going to get tougher".

I'll give him ten games but I suspect he'll be in trouble well before then. I predict these pages will be awash once again with "Bowyer out" before November as panic begins to creep in.

I'll get the first one in early shall I....

BOWYER OUT!
It never ceases to amuse me how obvious your small brained hatred of Rovers achievements still eats at you enough to sit gloating at an eventual victory that came after three years of ravaging from the vultures and parasites.

It's like revelling in the misfortune of the prom king after he was hit by a bus and you can now beat him up because he's in a wheelchair. Hardly a victory to be proud of but I'd hazard a guess that's exactly the kind of keyboard warrior you are, the kind that comes in last to throw in a boot after someone else has done the beating.

Burnley 59/60 is right. These foreign parasites have near enough destroyed a proud English club that lived the dream through the eyes of a local wealthy benefactor done good. A victory is a victory but man that must have been a hollow one when you had to wait till the vultures had raped and pillaged before you could get your rocks off.

But of course after 34 years you'd have taken anything.

Paint it how you like but the fact that you're still hear when your club has been promoted speaks volumes of the hurt that just won't stop.

In a similar situation I guarantee we'd be telling you we no longer care about your poxy club as we're now a league above you but the very fact that you and your other cronies/monikers can only go on about the financial windfall when you come crashing down again next season tells its own story that you, like everyone else including the bookies have no faith in your team maintaining what was unarguably one of the best performances in your clubs history.

Rovers on the other hand even after three years if carnage and FFP looming seem to be going from strength to strength and maybe THAT'S whats keeping you up at nights.

Roll on next season!

Match of the day.

Do you remember when you used to be on that?
Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
Bought.

Bought the Premiership title.
Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so.

Man U?
Chelsea?
Man City?
Arsenal?

And what about the following teams who threw loads of cash at it but never managed it:

Newcastle
Liverpool
Spurs
Villa
Middlesbrough

If you can buy the title, as you say, then how come they didn't manage it as they certainly paid enough for it?

Bitter Dingle - &quot;Boo Hoo, we'll never win a trophy in our lifetimes, so we'll try to look for a reason to try and degrade yours"

What about the League Cup - did we buy that as well? No doubt you think we did you bitter Dingle!

In fact you're so bitter about it that you devote your whole life to writing on these pages.
"Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so. Man U? Chelsea? Man City? Arsenal?"


Man U? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, and have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE twice. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 75,207.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.

You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level."

So by your rationale, only clubs in big cities who can attract large crowds should be entitled to win the Premiership or have a chance of playing in Europe? (Precisely what FFP will achieve and what the big clubs wanted).

I'm going to out on a limb here and say even you can't be that narrow-minded and stupid enough to believe that, or is the hurt so deep you'd rather no small town team ever managed to achieve what we did, effectively ending any hopes you ever had of doing the same?

Be careful what you wish for. If by any fluke you manage to stay up for more than a season, there might a fate worse than Venkys looking to acquire a Premiership club on the cheap and its not like fans have any say who the club is sold to either.

Your merriments at Rovers demise in the hands of foreign parasites may come back to haunt you sooner than you realise.

Spending every waking moment of your life trolling these pages, using other people's misfortunes in some pathetic attempt to validate your own pitiful excuse of an existence.

Perhaps you shouldn't be mocking others for expecting the worst for Burnley FC when you, personally, have spent the best part of two years predicting a whole bunch of terrible things for Rovers, none of which have come to fruition.

And me Match of the Day on BBC @ 10-30ish will be great watching Burnley being beaton time after time,can't wait myself,have put a note on the calendar and will see how many posts on here from you??but by then you will have changed your name AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN
Match of the day.

Do you remember when you used to be on that?
Yes, in fact I've still got the recording of when we won the Premiership title on it.
Bought.

Bought the Premiership title.
Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so.

Man U?
Chelsea?
Man City?
Arsenal?

And what about the following teams who threw loads of cash at it but never managed it:

Newcastle
Liverpool
Spurs
Villa
Middlesbrough

If you can buy the title, as you say, then how come they didn't manage it as they certainly paid enough for it?

Bitter Dingle - &quot;Boo Hoo, we'll never win a trophy in our lifetimes, so we'll try to look for a reason to try and degrade yours"

What about the League Cup - did we buy that as well? No doubt you think we did you bitter Dingle!

In fact you're so bitter about it that you devote your whole life to writing on these pages.
"Nonsense. Which of the following Premier League winners didn't spend a lot of money in order to do so. Man U? Chelsea? Man City? Arsenal?"


Man U? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, and have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE twice. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 75,207.

Chelsea? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, have since become CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Never been relegated from the Premier League. Average attendance 41,482.

Man City? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 2 time Premier League champions. Average attendance 47,080.

Arsenal? - Still a PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB, 3 times Premier League Champions, In 18 consecutive Premier League seasons have not finished outside of the top 4. Average attendance 59,487.

Blackburn? Got lucky with outside investment, outspent everyone else for a couple of seasons, bought the title, since relegated TWICE, owned by Indian chicken farmers, now a penniless mid-table Championship club paying the price for years of gross overspending. Average attendance 14,961.


Can you see the difference between the clubs you highlighted and your own club? These are top flight clubs who generate a massive income through season ticket sales, commercial revenue and the ability to attract the top sponsorship deals due to their success. You on the other hand were simply a blip in the natural order and have since found your level.

To put it into perspective, in the time since Blackburn Rovers last won any form of honour fair and square (without a massive financial investment) which was the FA Cup way back in 1928, right up until Jackpot Jack bought the league, you won NOTHING. 67 years worth of nothing.

During the same time period, Burnley won the title, reached 2 FA Cup finals, reached the European Cup Quarter Final and won the Charity Shield twice.

Can you explain the 67 year absence of silverware, and the coincidence of its return in conjunction with your club being backed to the tune of £100million? The simple facts are your club only managed to scrape itself up into a temporary false position due to a massive cash injection, and it makes you so bitter and angry to see that little old Burnley have joined the elite by spending next to nothing, now that's a real achievement.
What an idiot!
