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

Your Call Vital Blackburn Members...

New ways of improving this site are always being looked at; another is being looked at now which could potential ignite this site! But for this your help is needed!

Where possible all the major breaking news surrounding Ewood Park is brought to you. Sometimes "recycling" news (as it can be viewed, which it is but we NEVER copy anything, we word it our own way and try and put a different spin on it) may be frustrating but where else can you get to talk about an article, written to a high standard within the same page like you do here on Vital Blackburn? We don't just cover the breaking news we also add opinionated pieces written by James Watson, myself and you the Vital Blackburn fans when you submit your ideas KEEP THESE COMING!

Right, back to the main point! A new idea is being developed and people are getting behind it (you know who you are) but this is something I want as many of us as possible to be involved in so this is your chance, have your say and let's make this work.

Once a week on a set day, between certain hours I would like us to meet up on this site and have an online chat in the forum, debating certain points from that week or from our history etc. (maybe five different topics so you can float from thread to thread), these can and will again be decided by you.

The proposed name for this new forum is "Walkerbout" a play on words of the legendary Jack Walker and the Walkabout pubs, football and pubs go hand in hand so incorporating the two along with Uncle Jack seems appropriate. The proposed day is currently Sunday Evening from the hour of 6 O'clock onwards, maybe an hour or two hour long session, although a lock in could be possible for those stragglers who just won't go home when time is called...

Make your voice heard; what do you
A) Think of the idea?
B) Think of the proposed name? (Walkerbout)
C) Think of the proposed day (Sunday)
D) Think of the proposed time (18:00-19:00/20:00)


I do hope that many of you do just that and will try to get involved; maybe not every week but as and when you can.

If times aren't good for you have your say, these are just proposed ideas not concrete, Sunday seems appropriate as the previous game will be VERY fresh in the mind and any midweek ones approaching also a good topic point...

I do hope you will leave your thoughts, comments and suggestions below...

Don't forget the forum, you can talk about whatever you want there and YOU decide what it is! Forum Link

This idea has MASSIVE potential so leave your thoughts on it and whether or not it is something you think you can/will get involved with. If the name, day or time isn't good for you but you would like to be involved have your say. This is YOUR site so make the most of it.

I would really like to be interested, just wondering what the time mentioned will be in Sydney time, something like 4am lol.
sasman
Thats the draw back isn't it, a good idea (even though other than the ones that have already sponen about this and yourself sasman no one else has shown any interest...YET?!?!) but trying to accomodate Rovers from all around the globe is difficult isn't it. How you feeling about being beaten in the cricket? Told you we'd win didn't I, bring on the World Cup!
Hughes Da Man
Hahahah, congrats, u deserved it, still cant believe it, ah well our boys still number one
sasman
Nothing to do with me but we have a set chat time on a Sunday eve and it's great. Go for it.
bmb
Your boys are the best for now but we'll win the World Cup in a couple of months! Thanks bmb I really do think this idea has HUGE potential, just hope others feel the same?!?!
Hughes Da Man
Certainly has a lot of potential. Wish you well with it!
sandgroanun
Right guys I'm going for it Walkerbout will open for business this coming Sunday anyone that wants to participate is more than welcome. I'll get the new forum set up ready and we'll be full speed ahead with a 6pm kick off?
Hughes Da Man
Will it be running in a "New Forum" or will the thread be in one of the existing one's.
col8
A new forum all together entitled "WalkerBout" will be set-up, could do it myself but to ensure it is done with no errors (allowing unwanted visitors in as can happen if not ste up right!) I'll contact the guys at the top and ask them to do it for me.
Hughes Da Man
The Forum is now sorted Walkerbout will be launched THIS Sunday (18th @ 6pm, unless 7pm would be better? And will last for 1 hour at least). To put forward the suggestions on topics you would maybe like discussed this week visit this link and leave your comments... http://www.blackburn.vitalfootball.co.uk/forum/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1152&posts=1
Hughes Da Man
Can us hoolies from league 1 come in for a visit if we promise to behave? If so I might just pop by and meet some fellow vitals peeps from other clubs!
bmb
Why not! I have no objections if no one else does.
Hughes Da Man
Thank you! I'm not the type to come in to cause a row! If peeps are uncomfortable with an intruder I'll disappear again. But that sandgroanun he's known hoolie from Blackpool - be warned!!! LOL
bmb
At the end of the day we're all football fans and most subjects can be discussed as such can't they.
Hughes Da Man
I'd say the more the merrier. One of the reasons i keep coming back to this place (aside from the exceptional articles ;-) ) is the fact that other clubs fans are around. There's nothing worse than getting all insular and ignoring other views (Unless they're spurs fans obviously. *Whistles innocently*)
Head Rover Heels
Touche Head Rover Heels!

You mean they have some head rovers heels ;)
