Sadly the first post is a typical mindless immature moron.

Fully agree with the statement I have some good memories of the Derby matches stretching back to the 1950s where I used to both home and away games and felt comfortable and enjoyed light hearted banter with all fans. I remember when the buses used to be down the side street at the bus station and fans from both sides go get to Ewood together without trouble.

Sadly I don't go to the away match now but will be in my usual seat in the upper JH stand looking forward to a good game.

Let's hope it's not spoilt by bad crowd behaviour and players spitting their dummies out.

Let's enjoy what is probably the most under publicised oldest Derby in Emglish football where proper fans from both sides have a true passion for who gets the bragging rights until the next match.

Here's for a good game and sorry but I have to say it "UTC"

Anyone know a site I can watch on as game is not televised. I usually use front row but it doesn't show many championship games.

If Burnley cant be our current squad of mostly spineless overpaid has-beens and tossers then they never will, and if they do beat fair do's they will have deserved it.

and yes i am a live long rovers fan.

In what way are they "up for it"? It's the Police not a firm.

I will be glad when 3:00pm Sunday arrives. Then we will know one way or the other whether Burnley have what it takes to beat a team that is going through one of the most traumatic periods in its history.
If they can't beat us now they never will. Even a draw will be like a defeat for them.

I am waiting for sunday afternoon. What a match - A derby dream match of our time in this era.

I feel Blackburn show the courage and sprit to win and keep the good record. Hope Pedersen and Dunn got little experiance in old time on ground.

Keep it tight, when the time comes attack and finish the game. this is FANS game, Berg is the best person know the deal. If this win mean Fans are with u for the season, otherwise three lose in a trot, Berg is OUT. keep this as a rule in Blackburn Managers post.

News that Steve Kean comes for the match.

All the best.

You're right, a draw is not enough for Burnley who I expect to win comfortably 4-1. What goes round comes around, Blackburn have had around 20 years above Burnley but the tide has turned and soon it will be back to the Clarets one division above Rovers as it was not long before Walker's money changed Blackburn. Hope its a great game and I'm sure the best team will win.

Can't see it ever being Clarets one division above Rovers. But could be Rovers one division above Clarets.
