Blackburn to make general sale?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any memory from previous years on whether it makes general sale? Is it only Leeds that get given the whole end?

Yes they will give us the all of the away end.. tickets should be available for general sale,,,

But there will be plenty of tickets for General sale before the end of the season...

Blackburn

Swansea

Ipswich

Millwall

Bolton, maybe

Leeds

Norwich

should all make general sale...

Will definitely make general sale , you get the whole end 6800 tickets if you can sell them, which unfortunately I don't think we will.

if we were doing well we would sell the lot, took huge following to wigan and last season just under 6000 to preston 1st game. id guess about 4000 will go to blackburn so general sale for certain you will get tickets .

Big problem for this one is the Northern Rail strike which means potentially zero trains running between Manchester and Blackburn.

there is a timetable running from Manchester Victoria to blackburn , its certain other lines where less or no services are running . according to northern rail website . I will be doing the train to Piccadilly pick up a few pubs in Manchester and get train from Victoria , the day will be fun ,on the pitch a different matter.

best double check if I were you.

 

the trainline only seems to update the trains for the upcoming weekend. check the trains for this weekend and you will see that it takes at least 2 hours from Manchester to Blackburn

 

these are Saturdays train times  from Sheffield to Blackburn

there is only 1 train coming back leaving Blackburn at 19.13

 

We are having the same problems trying to get to and from Leeds

just booked train tickets wish I saw this 1st. for this Saturday it looks impossible , on the 24th and our game on 1st looks ok but they may only amend there service every week when they know what drivers they have etc during these strikes.

The best option might be to get the Trans Pennine Express to Preston then a (relatively) short taxi trip to Blackburn.

be about £20-25 for a taxi so upto £50 there and back .do we bill northern rail for these taxi fares? and we might get stuck in preston for night as this Saturday there only 1 train an hour back to Piccadilly non to Victoria ,can see train been totally rammed and no way of getting on it , might bill northern rail for the £50 taxi fares , hotel for night £80 ,and a night of boozing in preston then the train fare . what a joke of a company I thought we were run bad , ,must be ruining a lot of weekends gona blackpool ,and everyone what likes to go to manchester from north west . think I might have to bloody drive there . yes I know the game aint this Saturday but unless the strike ends before 1st dec train is a defo no no.

Is the strike likely to be over by 1st December??

 

Ive got train tickets booked coming down from Scotland but I dont get to Preston till 1315. Might just get a refund (which I can do) as I cant be bothered with buses etc. :mad:

Doubt the strike will be over , it's been going for a couple of years now , its about driver only trains and getting rid of the guard.

I'm gritting my teath and baring it through these strikes because I do agree that trains need guards.

 

Shall we organise a sponsored walk :biggrin:

 

Got my ticket this morning. I'll go on my bmx if I have to.
