Re: Blackburn v Shrewsbury, 13-1, 2017 @ 15:00

We were absolutely outstanding today, without a doubt our best performance of the season. From the first minute to the last the lads were at it. Bennett was a revelation in the middle alongside Smallwood. Their pressing and tempo set the tone for the entire team. Every player today was an 8/10 at le...

Re: FA Cup - Third Round: Blackburn Rovers V Hull City SAT 06 Jan 2018, 3pm

Nuttall not good enough I’m afraid. You look at him physically and you expect him to dominate centre half’s. He is so light weight though it’s untrue. The minute Graham and Dack came on we looked so much better.

Anyway...win next weekend and all will be forgiven!

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Scunthorpe United Sat Dec 30th KO 3pm

Arguably our best performance this season (certainly at home). Just disappointing that 2 individual errors cost us goals. If a team carves you open or score a belter you hold your hand up, but these were both self inflicted. Interesting to read the comments about Whittingham. Personally I have to di...

Re: Blackburn/Rochdale, Boxing Day.

How Corry Evans gets a game week after week is beyond me. He has been dog shit all season yet Mowbray continues to pick him. He must be like David Silva in training...

Yet another very poor performance but 3 points in the bag. Will be interesting when we actually play a decent team at Ewood...

Re: ROVERS vs Bristol Rovers. Sat Nov 25th 3pm

Wow...how did we manage to get 3 points today??!! Played off the park we were. I thought we were really really poor. I was worried when I so the lineup. Starting 3 defensive minded midfielders and 1 upfront at home to Bristol!!! You certainly so the limitations of Nuttall today. He cannot play as a ...

Re: Bury v Blackburn Rovers

Very enjoyable afternoon yesterday. First trip to Gigg Lane and I thought it was a nice little ground. I think having 2 seperate stands actually had an impact on the generation of an atmosphere as there was a lack of cohesion, but still a great level of noise. 2 stand out players for me yesterday we...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Portsmouth Sat 20/10 2017 @ 3 PM

Best performance of the season by a mile. Soooooooo much better than recent games and I left very happy (albeit very wet) this afternoon! Does this coincide with the inclusion of Chapman from the start we don't know, but he adds pace and an attacking threat from the off. The one negative was the pet...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Plymouth Argyle

That miss in the last minute is possibly the worse I've ever seen live. I still can't believe he didn't score now.

Lots of chances created tonight but our finishing is truly awful.

Re: Oldham Athletic v Blackburn Rovers Sat 12/10 2017 @ 3 pm

Might not be as crazy an idea as you think. I don't recall ever playing football and being completely unable to do anything because there was no manager. Lack of any footballing ability, sure, but not because of no manager. The fan opinion of what a manager can influence on the pitch is stupendousl...

Re: Oldham Athletic v Blackburn Rovers Sat 12/10 2017 @ 3 pm

Have you considered that the players he picks might be the ones in our team putting in the most effort? What do you do if none of your players or the players available to you give a shit? Pick nobody and forfeit every game? The things people put on managers is ridiculous in this age of massively ov...
