    I wonder what happened to Rovers till I die....

    Well this season has inspired more to buy a new season ticket.

    The players gave 100% every game despite the fact we didn't support them because we was to busy trying to get Kean sacked.

    We have the most thick skinned manager I've ever known despite the fans booing him every game including when he was celebrating a goal, death threats and no financial support he has almost certainly saved us from relegation.

    Despite everything we are staying up because of hard work and skill for those who do not know Arte et Labore translates 'Through skill and labour' this team is as blue and white as it gets.

    Venky's are the ones who caused all of our problems in reality Kean was just left to deal with it.

    Let's buy the club, leave protests towards Venky's away from games and support the club we love.

    We love you Rovers we do!
    if too seasons being at the bottom of the P/L cant get rid of the worse manager in BRFC history, then forget thinking you can get rid of venkys, your dreaming, by the way kean takes at least 1% of any transfers and profits from BRFC .He is loving every minute.saving us from relegation?no just making up for his shocking mistakes for the last 16 months but expect the same if he isnt sacked next year
    The worst manager in Rovers' history?? Surely not. My first year as a supporter and season ticket holder was 1998/99 under Brian Kidd when we got relegated. Paul Ince was clueless. Sam Allardyce did a great job keeping us in the PL but the football was boring boring boring.

    Not an expert on Rovers' history but I believe in 1965/66 we only got 20 league points.

    Others who have been supporting Rovers for a while longer will no doubt have views on other managers.

    Kean is managing the team against the backdrop of naive (or evil depending on your point of view!!) owners who have not kept their promises to the fans. Yes it has taken him a long time to find his feet and yes I still don't listen to his interviews in case he comes out with some bizarre overly positive analysis, BUT the team are definitely playing for him, we are scoring goals, the football is at times flowing and entertaining (although still not often enough).

    If people are going to criticise the guy then at least stick to the facts. He may be many things, but he is not the worst manager in the club's history.
    Get your facts right MR nob head,it was only to points per win in the sixties, not three points for a win in the P/L now, and if you compare the two seasons he has had then yes worst manager in BRFC history up to now."

Season ticket prices frozen at Blackburn Rovers

First published in Sport

Blackburn Rovers have once again left Premier League rivals trailing in their wake in terms of offering their fans value for money - with the Ewood faithful able to watch football next season for less than £12 per game.

Rovers will today announce their decision to freeze Early Bird season ticket prices for 2012-13, as owners Venky’s continue efforts to ensure Ewood Park is one of the cheapest places in the country to watch league football.

With an adult seat available again for £225 in the Ronnie Clayton Blackburn End and Riverside stands, Rovers’ prices are expected to again beat all other Premier League clubs, as well as offering a cheaper standard season ticket than the majority of Football League clubs.

League Two Swindon Town’s cheapest season ticket price for next season is £320, Walsall supporters would have to fork out £290, while Norwich City fans will have to pay £509 to watch their heroes next campaign.

Most clubs still have to unveil their pricing policy for next season but it is unlikely anywhere in the country will match the value for money on offer at Ewood Park.

Season tickets went on sale today and existing season ticket holders and new applicants have until April 30 to buy at the Early Bird rate.

Under 16s cheapest tickets are priced at £85, which works out at less than £4.50 per game.

The club will also continue to offer the 16-game season ticket in the WEC Darwen End for £165, with fans opting for all 19 games in that stand able to relocate for the three extra matches.

Deputy chief executive Paul Hunt, said: “We fully acknowledge that these are tough financial times and our aim is to make supporting Rovers as affordable as we possibly can.

“Our owners are totally committed to this policy and we are delighted to be able to keep Early Bird season ticket prices for 2012-13 at this season’s level.

“It has been a challenging season, on and off the field, but we believe that freezing prices not only rewards loyal support but will also help encourage many more people to sign up.

“No-one can argue that the season ticket package is anything other than tremendous value but, to get it to work - emotionally and financially - we now need the people of the area to get right behind us and swell our numbers.”

Blackburn Rovers fan Mark Reynolds, 25, from Oswaldtwistle, has hailed the club’s efforts to keep prices affordable for supporters.

He said: “It is a great effort from all concerned. We know there are issues around the owners but they can’t be criticised for this.

“It will be interesting to see whether there is a big take up on this but I hope it does help in bringing fans back to Ewood Park.”

Former Rovers striker Simon Garner, said: “It is very good and hopefully it will encourage a few more people to come back to the club.

“Football is too dear these days and other clubs should look at what Rovers have done and follow suit. Results are the big driving factor but prices like this can only help.”

Season tickets can be purchased at any of the following outlets: Roverstore Ewood, Oneroverstore Blackburn town centre, via, by post, by phone on 08712221444.

Payments can be spread over 10 months with Season Ticket Finance and you can pick up an application form from Roverstore/Oneroverstore.
