Re: Cycling

Could the preseason pressure on Froome and Team Sky be finally showing? Performances haven’t been great all spring by any riders, save flashes at times and although Froome usually isn’t at peak performance at this time (peaking for the Tour de France each season) he’s been shockingly poor so far. Tw...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

One thing I have seen comes not from us but from the Hibs scuttlebutt. Hopefully this tweet thing works!

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

As things worked out the one game that stuck in my mind with regret is the Bristol game. Literally needed one hoof downfield and the game was over. Could well have been winners not runners up. Ah well, back where we want to be for now. Now to keep building and not do a Bolton, hopefully keep the big...

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

I saw first hand one topless yob trying to intimidate the Oxford players, getting right in their faces and Karl Robinson to his credit, confronted the cretin. I like a manager who defends his players. I believe he grabbed him by the throat before a security guard separated them. Probably get fined f...

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

Guys I’m driving to Ewood today for the game but the last time I drove through was a poorly attended midweek game against Scunthorpe in the league cup and parking wasn’t an issue. Any tips on where the best places to park are? Also is there much to do around Ewood now? It was desolate a year or two ...

Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

Donny have been involved in some pretty ridiculous season ending games in recent years. Wouldn’t put it too far out of mind that they could win. Especially if Wigan field a weakened side.

That said they haven’t scored a goal since god were a lad so chances don’t look good.

Re: Charlton v Blackburn, Sat 28 April 2018, KO 15:00

Trust us to put out a weaker squad, play well but go behind to a crazy deflection the same day Wigan (so far) are losing.

If Wigan do lose and we can’t win, those lads are gonna be kicking themselves!

Re: FA receive offer for Wembley

I was never in favour of Wembley being the national stadium, I much preferred the “England on Tour” games. It opened up th games for a much wider audience. I realise what Shad Khan wants to do but it’s dangerous. American football is VERY popular right now but it was in the 80s before a lull. They’v...

Re: 17/18 Kit

No 3XL left so this fat bloke is heading to the Umbro site and paying a little more. Only buy one kit every so often and never the away kit, after all we’re the blue and whites!

Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

Still can’t get over last night. I’ve never felt such joy at a football game before. Sure I’ve been at Ewood for big wins and tight ones, even for UEFA cup nights but never before have I experienced *that* feeling. Euphoria. That’s all I can describe it as. Again it’s a shame those idiots ruined our...

Re: Doncaster v Blackburn, Battle of the Rovers 2 or 4: Electric Boogaloo, Tue, 24 April 2018, KO 18:45

Unbelievable! Terrible game, terrible conditions but that precious win we needed! My voice has gone, my throats sore and I was disappointed we didn’t get chance to celebrate with the players due to the second pitch invasion, which was just stupid. Great, great feeling and we’re still in with half a ...

Safe journey to everyone making the trip to Doncaster tonight. I hope to meet many of you when you arrive!
Dean I’ve tweeted your account twice with a query about tonight, any chance of some help? Cheers
