A trip to Burnley and the suspension of human rights

It's derby day tomorrow, Burnley v Blackburn Rovers at Turf Moor. The fact that we're playing our closest rivals at the business end of a season that sees them in deep trouble adds to the spice. We should win, but I'm obviously nervous.

Tickets are only available to season ticket holders who've also been to a couple of away games. You also have to agree to have your human rights suspended for the day and travel under heavy police protection. For a 12pm kick off within 10 miles of Ewood Park we have to be on a bus at Ewood at 9am. I may even get to read the Observer for a change.
