Not a match preview but just a point that Wigan have sold their full allocation of 3,000 and been told by Rovers that no more available.

Last time they had such a following was back in 2008 when they went to Bolton and won !!!!!

Off to watch them against Newcastle at weekend. Should be a good match with two knowledgeable managers - that's novel for a start !

Ive been arguing this week wi a few latics fans who have been moaning about their 'small allocation'. As if there's ever been a need to give them more than 1000 tickets ever before!

They know they'll never have a better chance to beat us at Ewood than they do now.

We're down and troubled, in search for better days

Back to the beginning, we're at the end again

All of my time, compressed to itching moments

As the future repeats today

I should hope not.
The Wigan preview is mine.

Sheffield Wednesday will go all the way this season just as Southampton did.

They have real momentum and a half decent manager.

Sounds Like the full bottom tier will be away fans (rovers fans) Wigan fans in upper tier. Easier to police those animals in the lower tier.

I would guess the (IMO) cretins at Ewood want to maximise home support / advantage.

Doubt that they would have been so churlish with United or City.

However, may spectacularly backfire; virtually, all those with Rovers connections who I have spoken with recently, have said this is a match they wont miss as they firmly believe we will be relegated at this match and want to make their feelings known long, loud and clear. Unfortunately, too many, too late are waking-up to smell the coffee. However, think we saw and heard a foretaste of things to come after 70 minutes at the Norwich match (huge Venky's out chants).

I would think, especially being live on Sky, (IMO) Newsham and the other clowns who now manage our club, will be absolutely sh1tt1ng bricks about this one. The one thing they cannot do is take away our voices !!!

I hate to say this but if we are more or less down come the Wigan game the atmosphere inside Ewood will be poisonous at best.

Blackburn Rovers....THE most successful town club in the land!

 

SOS...Save our club from Venky's!!

I think you're right, with the two games for 15 quid offer there's going to be many people in the ground who wouldn't have bought an individual ticket knowing we were already relegated. I expect a 90 minute protest.

Wigan can hardly complain that they haven't been given many tickets.. if they took more than 20 away fans to games then they would probably have a case

With the way things are going Wigan are likely to beat us and put us down.

Might as well go out with a BANG and get banned. Solves the season ticket dilemma.

I know of a few that have boycotted most of the season that are going on this game. You can't kick a vipers nest constantly and not expect to get bitten. This club means too much to so many for this game not to... well lets just say, you can't ban those who won't be there next year.

All the talk is "on the pitch and confront Kean".

Do't do....it is not worth the criminal record.
Venkys are Kean !!

I hope the atmosphere is so hostile that it will be felt in Pune and that Kean will be reduced to a quivering wreck, however, I would urge all supporters not to do anything that could leave them with a criminal record.
