'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jason Brown sticks the knife in

Jason Brown has declared that his time at Rovers is coming to an end.

With his contract up in the summer and the chances of him breaking into the first team remote, it seems like a good call to search for a new place of employment. We'd all do it if that was the case.

What we wouldn't do however is taking a thinly veiled parting shot at the people who had paid my wages for the last 5 years whilst having the safety barrier of the Pennines over at Leeds United.

Jason Brown told the Lancashire Telegraph: 'My contract at Blackburn finishes at the end of the season and I made it clear to them in the summer that I was very much looking for another club.

I am excited to be at Leeds on loan. It would be a great club maybe to come back to if all goes well.

I am working as hard as I can in training and if I get another opportunity in the first team I want to make the most of it.

'As good a club as Blackburn are, they don't get crowds of 25,000, even for the visit of Manchester United, so it is a privilege to be at Leeds.'

Anyone fancy pointing out to Browny that a quick trip to Rovers own website will show him that last season's attendance for the Man United fixture was 29,912.

Take it more gracefully Jason.

Not very good form from the man who up to this point has been a good servant.

It is a bit of a cheap shot going for attendances. Funny thing is I think I've only seen him play when we beat Wigan a few seasons ago when he came on for Friedel and saved a penalty, and the attendance wasn't massive that day.

He doesn't know how many people were there because he wasn't one of them.

Come on guys in the context of what he's saying - he's liking it at Leeds because they've got a big crowd - and good as we are we haven't got that - he's just stating what we all know. Shouldn't get upset by him comments. I understand what he's saying.

Jason Brown has never looked like a goalkeeper. Too heavy and too short. His comments show he hasn't any class either. Jason just leave if you don't want to stay. I might be wrong but I can't see you holding down a place at Leeds either.
