I can't figure out how to buy tickets on the website @_@ Do I previously have had to purchase tickets to a game? If I do buy them, will I have to collect them from Ewood cause that's not possible cause I live in the North East D:

With a game like this coming up in the cup from past experience of being a rovers fan its the type of game we'll go and win. We once beat Sunderland up there one year and then got beat in the league two weeks later or vise versa. Thing is I think the league is the main priority but nothing bad can come from a cup run in the FA Cup as the rounds are played on weekends and not midweek depending on no replays. So it wouldnt be bad from a tiredness point of view. I think he should play his strongest team whilst at the same time giving players like rochina, vukcevic, and givet game time. It honestly wouldnt suprise me if we were to pick a win up there. Look what happened to us after beating united, we crashed. So whats to say Newcastle wont do the same. Ill go for 2-1 win for rovers. Pedersen and Dunny with our goals. Long shot but sack it! ha

I travel from Cheltenham on a game to game basis so have them delivered to my home address in advance. All of the internet allocation have been sold so you'd need to call the Ticket Office and speak to the lovely lady there to sort it out. They may be able to sort it for you to pick up in Newcastle on Saturday :)

Surely she will fall off her chair because someone is so silly as to want to go.

Patron saint of lost causes

It's been a while since we failed to score and this is the one

A solid defensive performance and ever 'adept' attacking strategies will ensure a creditable 7-1 scoreline, I assure you. And yes, I have ordered the scoreline correctly ;)

Do you think i'd be able to buy tickets on the day? Or is that a risk, or do they just not sell them at all?

Yep! I'll be there with three family members. Looks like there'll be at least 9 of us, then!
Hoping we have fun :)

I rang up the Rovers ticket office yesterday morning and the tickets arrived today. They weren't sure whether Newcastle will be selling away tickets on matchday but check with the BRFC ticket office tomorrow morning???
I think the Newcastle office number is 0844 372 1892. So you could try them too?
Good luck!

I can't believe Steve Kean and his family have voted for a rovers win 8 times :shock:
