I know that quite a few are looking to visit Ewood Park, where we haven't played for a long time but this fixture is in danger of being a mid week game. Sat 27th Jan is the date of the 4th round of the FA Cup, if Blackburn get through their replay against Crewe, they were 3-0 up before getting 2 sent off, they are then at home to Championship strugglers Hull City in the 3rd round, they win that and we're head North for a night game.

No chance I'd go on a Tuesday night, that would be a blow to making a rare visit to Ewood Park.

I see Blackburn won their replay so only Hull City can save us from a Tuesday night trip to Lancashire in January or February.

Only place of the 92 I've never been. Does Blackburn have street lights anyone know?

Oh and what about a Cafe Nero?
Bit pricey and awkward to get to whether Saturday or week night tbf. Can get back to Preston (by train) quicker from Accrington, with the ground being so much closer to the station than Ewood Park.

I've only got the London stadium (West Ham) to complete my 92 again!. They do have streetlights in Blackburn but they might be gas powered.
   There are trains back to Preston but none early enough to get you back down here

You didn't answer the Cafe Nero question!  Grin

Also haven't been to the London Stadium...but having followed West Ham through the mid eighties to early nineties...Upton Park will suffice!

If night game, probably stay over in Preston. Few of us did that for the 1-0 win at Accrington when nearly out of the league!

London Stadium is nice but I didn't go for football, which I'm led to believe it is hideous for.

I work with a few Hammers, and they really dont like the place. Poor line of sight, too far from the pitch, and thus, very difficult to get an atmosphere going, unless they play Chelsea or Spurs, when it becomes toxic due to a lack of police inside the ground. They were the moans of Alan the brickie, who with his wife, used to babysit JED a few years back. Apparently, he was stubborn as a child as well. Not relevant I know, but I just thought that I would mention it.  Grin

Don't worry, the last six or so posts haven't been relevant! Give it three or four weeks, some twat will start a new thread (Blackburn away) because they can't be bothered to check if one is running already...and ask some pathetically banal question like;
Does anyone know a good place to park?

It's what an awayday is all about...finding a suitable parking place!  Grin

I went to see them at Leicester De Montford about 20 years ago. It was a good gig. But I never considered them to be a Stadium band though. Was it any good?
