Re: Rovers vs Leicester, 25th August, 15:00

I do not think it is possible to make any predictions until the players and managers stop playing musical chairs! :D

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

Simon, If the fans previously complained about Sam Alladyce (your words Simon) this leads me to wonder, as a newcomer, if some of the Rovers fans are continual moaners and will always find something to moan about. With regard to Steve Bruce, I do not accept that my view is unbalanced. The fact that ...

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

Ethiaa, I agree with you entirely that getting behind the team is far more important than the management issues. I suspect that at the start of the season most sides will play a defensive game. Surely whoever picks the team, what really matters is what happens when the players cross the white line -...

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

"There are far better sides that Hull and Ipswich in this league" Umm - and how do you know this as fact and on what basis have you made this judgement, after just two games? :hyper:

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

The only way we will be able to judge Brucies ability is where Hull finish at the end of the season. Bet it won't be far away from Rovers, anyway,as they seemed pretty well organised to me - and they had two very near misses in the first half. As a comparative newcomer, I suspect that a lot of what ...

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

I have supported the Gills for much longer than you, since 1958, and they have had some awful managers, but I still carried on supporting them - and we rarely achieved very much in all those years. The only reason I cannot get to the Gills home games now is because it is a long way and as a pensione...

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

Shit manager? What a silly comment. When Brucie was Birminghams manager he twice got them promoted to the Premier.

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

Sorry, but I don't like hearing rude comments about Brucie. He was one of the best players who ever turned out for the Gills and he is still a legend at Priestfield. :D If the Rovers players who were in the team last season had played with half the drive Brucie showed as a player, they would not hav...

Re: Rovers vs Hull, Wed 22nd August, 19:45

I thought the performance against Hull was not too bad, especially the last 30 minutes, and I think the BBC website match report is a bit unfair. That is really a matter of opinion of an individual, but the BBC report also said there was continuous chants of Kean out throughout the game. Unless my h...

Re: Shebby Singh 'appointed Global Advisor'

Does anyone know has happened to David Goodwillie, as far as Rovers are concerned, seeing as the club feel that they needed to sign 2 strikers following the sad injury to Leon Best. Is David Goodwillie out on loan? David Goodwillie is apparently in the Scotland squad for Wednesday. I wonder if he st...

Re: Shebby Singh 'appointed Global Advisor'

I would still like to know the significance of the Sheff Wed game. Everyone else in Blackburn may know but as I have lived here only 2 years and been a Rovers fan since Jan 2012 how could I know? As everyone else seems to be looking forward to this game, as against the other home games, why is this ...

Re: Shebby Singh 'appointed Global Advisor'

Just looked on Wicki to see what it says about our wonderful global advisor. Well, he is a really experienced world authority when it comes to football. He apparently played for Malaysia and the highest honour he appears to have won was in the Asian Games. Venkys obviously feel that this is qualific...

Re: Shebby Singh 'appointed Global Advisor'

If you are talking about the official website I found the new format a bit confusing. However, I tend to use the BBC one - you tend to get the many bits that the club seem reluctant to mention to us. I don't recall seeing anything on the official site about big Sam sueing Kean and Rovers - it only a...

Re: Shebby Singh 'appointed Global Advisor'

On a completely different point, I am hoping that some of you long term Rovers fans may be able to give me some advice please. As my user name implies, I live in Wilpshire. Last season I used my car to get to the ground but found that parking was a bit of a nightmare at times. This year I got myself...
