Rovers at Christmas: A time of sacrifice for Ewood stalwart

Lancashire Telegraph: David Dunn David Dunn

DON’T go overboard on the turkey. Don’t be tempted to tuck into the chocolates. And certainly don’t get anywhere near the mulled wine.

While Christmas is a time to eat, drink and be merry for most of the nation, for our footballers it is a time of sacrifice.

And it is a sacrifice Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Dunn knows only too well.

After 17 years as a professional Dunn has not been able to experience a ‘proper’ Christmas since he was a kid.

But given the amount of games he has to prepare for and play over the festive period it is something he has grown to accept.

“To be honest Christmas is just the usual kind of thing for footballers, it’s normal to us,” said Rovers legend Dunn, who earlier this month made his 350th appearance for the club.

“You are always busy, whether it be training or playing matches.

“So you can’t do the same stuff that your friends and family are doing.”

Dunn is out of the house a lot over the festive period.

This year has been kind to him and his team-mates as Rovers have been handed home games against Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day and Birmingham City on Sunday.

But in previous years the fixture computer has not always been as charitable with last season’s Christmas clashes comprising trips to Middlesbrough and Barnsley.

Any time Dunn does have to spend at home with his family is precious.

“Don’t get me wrong you can still enjoy Christmas and I love spending time with my children,” said the former England international, who produced an excellent performance in the 1-0 win at Yeovil Town on Saturday afternoon.

“Once you are home you’re back into whatever anyone else does at Christmas – except for the eating and drinking as much as you like bit!”

Dunn has had to train on Christmas Day in the past.

“I’ve had managers that do that but lately, in the last couple of years, we’ve not been asked to do that,” he said.

“At this stage of the season when the games are coming thick and fast, if you look after yourself it shouldn’t really matter.”

One way British footballers would get to experience Christmas is if the authorities followed in the footsteps of the vast majority of leagues in Europe and introduced a winter break.

But Dunn is not entirely sold on the idea.

“I suppose the idea of a winter break is to give you the chance to wind down,” said the 33-year-old.

“But if you had one you’d only have to get yourself back in shape after it’s over.

“So it’s not something I’ve really thought about it too much.

“Playing the amount of games we do has just become normal now.”

Christmas is a time of double celebration for Dunn.

As on December 27 it is his birthday.

He joked: “I’m 34 next – but I’m still hanging in there!”

Rovers complete their festive programme with a trip to Leeds United on New Year’s Day for a big War of the Roses encounter.

They then welcome Manchester City to Ewood Park on Saturday, January 4 for a mouth-watering FA Cup third round clash that will be televised live on BT Sport at 12.45pm.

Still, achieved a bit more with his career than the lower league wannabees at Turf Moor. An England international who has won silverware, when was the last time one of those came from Burnley?

I won't make any fat jokes about David "kebab slayer" Dunn, but I will point out that the only thing he's "hanging in there" for is a fat new contract, and you can bet the doe-eyed hero worship he receives from the deluded mongrels down at Ewood will ensure he's bleeding you dry for years to come. His 7 games a season comes at an estimated £250,000 per game, and then he decides to sh!t out when the Clarets come to town. Poor old David Done, he knows the game is up.

What the Dingles don't realise is that it's all physiological, just reminding them what's to come at Ewood as he breaks your hearts and ruins your season yet again.

We are just keeping the old lad ticking over, keeping him fit and raring to go.

The Dingles are simply jealous because they haven't got anyone like Dunny, Blue and White through and through, not only a player but a fan who understands what it's all about.

As far as I am concerned he can have as many pies as he wants.

Hi Mark / Gaz, I’m surprised you’re on here slagging Dunny seeing as you seem to tell us how much of a pal you are with him? How it must hurt the number of times he’s almost single-handedly turned you lot over.

Maybe we shouldn’t be that surprised though, now you seem to reduce the banter to calling my Mum and insulting TB’s Dad who as you know passed away last year.

Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised though, given your display in the local pub after the Rovers beat you lot the other year. Quite happy to throw Haymakers (comedy moment when you missed that bloke in the dress) and all in front of your own family and lots of other kids.

Do us all a favour and stick to the B@rnley posts.

If your sister's "front bottom" tastes like a kebab mate then she needs to get straight down the gynecology department ASAP!

It's worthy every penny if Dunny only plays two games a season, as long as he scores his usual winner against the dingles and sends them home crying all the way back along the motorway....again
Dunny, the dingle slayer........pricel

Wouldn't they love it though if he wasn't playing? You can smell the fear.

I'm not one to post on this club's pages but have to say two things;
While I'm no fan of the Rovers, I happen to have personal knowledge of Dunn's admirable work outside of football. Like all the best men, he's modest about his enormous achievements in this arena and is the living embodiment of the adage 'discretion is the better part of valour'. He does what he does with no need of notice for it so it's for others to acknowledge the good he does. Anyone of any side who knows what he does would be full of admiration for this man.
Secondly, the fact that so much petty-minded vitriol has been vented on this page, by people in both camps, shows exactly how low people can sink. There are no words to describe the trough that affects some people's minds.
Grow up and stop your petty-minded point-scoring. It's childish beyond belief and your bickerfest does no-one any good.

While I'm no fan of the Rovers, I happen to have personal knowledge of Dunn's admirable work outside of football. Like all the best men, he's modest about his enormous achievements in this arena and is the living embodiment of the adage 'discretion is the better part of valour'. He does what he does with no need of notice for it so it's for others to acknowledge the good he does. Anyone of any side who knows what he does would be full of admiration for this man.
Secondly, the fact that so much petty-minded vitriol has been vented on this page, by people in both camps, shows exactly how low people can sink. There are no words to describe the trough that affects some people's minds.
Grow up and stop your petty-minded point-scoring. It's childish beyond belief and your bickerfest does no-one any good.
Says he who has been trolling on here for the past two years and has nothing to do with either Burnley or Blackburn. Must think no one has noticed.

Dunny has never been the fittest, he's never been the fastest and he wouldn't pretend to be the finest but when it comes to commitment, pride, drive and leadership he is up there with top Rovers legends. He is always a potential gamechanger and saves a silver bullet for the Dingles. Tuck in Dunny.
