Our season ticket prices haven't risen since 2010 (for juniors anyway). Mine went down £25 after our first Championship season. If Venky's got bored of funding us they could pull the plug easily because we rely on them to function, in 5 years we have been effectively 'gifted' £89m because they know unless we get promoted they have no other way to try to get the cash other than by asset stripping. They haven't done so yet and they are investing in the summer so we can buy players for higher fees. We won't do a Bolton.
Proper deluded bastards on the Blackburn forum. Thinking they're basically like united and city because they won the prem once.
Didn't say you ha ha just some of your fans on your forum proper thinking you're a world class club and all ThisI wouldn't call myself deluded at all. I love the fact that we have won the Premier League in my lifetime, but I'm under no illusions of where we're at as a club these days. We're a mid-table outfit with the potential to either challenge for a play-off spot or be in the relegation mix. Which is the case for a lot of the teams in this league.
He certainly was. Makes a nice change.We were shit until we were awarded a penalty and they had a man sent off, didn't think we were playing particularly well even when we added the second. Better second half but still failed to find the killer goal. Was good to see Beckford on the pitch and making the runs, went close with a decent effort, probably would have scored had he been match sharp. The Reach/ Huntington substitution baffled me though, I understand him coming on to match-up Chris Brown but don't take off our main outlet and most threatening player.
The likes of Pearson and Browne all played well today and Hugill, although he has the technical ability of a goat, was great up top. Gallagher ran the show. Question marks on this keeper though, sticks to his line and gives up his 6-yard box too easily for me. He'll do until the end of the season but I'd be pissed off if we ever signed him.
Referee was our friend today.
