Blackburn Rovers v Ipswich Town, Sat 19 Jan 2019, KO 15:00

Mowbray quite vocal about these next two homes games, said they're games we have to win and get ourselves close to the play-offs. Quite strong words, not that I disagree, I do think we have to beat Ipswich at home not because we're going to make the play-offs (I don't think we will ultimately) but b...

A bit hard that, Mcteeth.
Not really. I just don't like Newcastle as a football club, much like I don't like Man Utd.

Surely just part and parcel of being football fans :shrug:

Not got much love for Newcastle then? :D
Can't stand them, just makes is worse they have the media darling Rafa in charge. They can count themselves very lucky to have eeked past a Championship club.

Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

Bit of a pisser in the way the game panned out. We did so well getting things back to 2-2 and game hinges on Dack’s uncharacteristic miss and a clear offside goal. I really don’t get why we had VAR in the first game then not in the replay as it’s disadvantaged us. They clearly reviewed the penalty a...

Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

We're favourites to win tonight.

Never been a big fan of Benitez personally so would be nice to knock them out. Fancy Armstrong to score against his former employers tonight.

Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

I'd also assumed Evans being subbed at half time was tactical :lol:

Ah hadn't seen that yet, so could be Smallwood and Travis in the middle.

Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

Evans came off at half time at Millwall so just expect him to start, Reed and Travis played the full 90 so I think he'll rest them both particularly as Smallwood is back and hasn't been playing so should be raring to go. I'd rather have Travis and Reed rested and fresh for Ipswich as we've got a gre...

Re: Sack race

Legacy with Forest as a player but I'd be seriously underwhelmed appointing O'Neil these days. He's been pretty disappointing at Sunderland and ROI and some of the things that have come out about training and so forth don't make good reading.

FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

Not particularly fussed about the outcome of this as much but I think we can win and hope we do. As expected Newcastle lost against Chelsea and have a relegation 6 pointer with Cardiff at the weekend so I think we're likely to see a lot of changes in their side again. Pretty sure Mowbray will pick a...

I was also stood next to Matt Smith (I've never watched Dr Who or The Crown) which my wife found vastly more exciting than the match :lol:

Re: Millwall V Blackburn Rovers, Sat 12 Jan, KO 17:30

I do agree that Bell has areas to improve upon particularly a bit more confidence going forward and his distribution and crossing. But I also think some of that might be tactical. But then I think he’s much more preferable to Williams who I actually think is more of a liability defensively. Defensiv...

Re: Millwall V Blackburn Rovers, Sat 12 Jan, KO 17:30

Great win after an uneventful 80 minutes. Very typical of a championship game as there was nothing between the teams for most of the match and could always go either way. But finally the first moment of real quality saw us take the lead. Brilliant one two with Travis and Armstrong. Then a quick fire...

Millwall V Blackburn Rovers, Sat 12 Jan, KO 17:30

Easy game to get to for me. Feels winnable on paper and certainly hoping for us to go there and get something, but then we've not always been great against the seemingly poorer sides in the league. Out of the current bottom 6 we've only beaten Bolton and that was a scrappy 0-1 with a number of draws...
