Re: Some token points for Mowbray

Well, today's announcement is welcome. Mowbray appears to have the owners backing now.

Good deal, some continuity & stability going forward may be jyst what the doctor ordered for Blackburn Rovers.

Nevermind, then. I guess this doesn't qualify for discussion.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Sorted alphabetically, the only time we'll be top of the league :cry: I'm not so sure, Hudson. Blackburn Rovers could be boss of League 1. Of course, if we lose what few remaining quality players we have, Mowbray could be battling to stay in the top half. I will be optimistic, & say Rovers finish i...

Re: Relegation Stay or Go

Good plan. I think Mowbray is a fair judge of talent, & a decent coach. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

Re: Relegation Stay or Go

Welcome, the growlery! You may have something...someone who embraces Mowbray's bulldog tenaciousness on defense. Mulgrew, if he stays would be a good choice. Whatever else happens, we know there will be a new Captain. I think our 1st team will be a sprinkling of those already mentioned, plus 2-3 wel...

Re: Relegation Stay or Go

Dreamland would be to keep: Raya Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Ward Williams Conway Bennett Mahoney Graham If we could keep the above as the nucleus of the squad, it would put us in decent shape. Realistically however, I'll be amazed if we can keep 50%... Its been 10 days & your 11 are still intact, after...

Re: From Dallas to Blackburn.

Hey, thanks, guys.

I am staying as positive as possible about this transition. I think we'll all feel better when our starting 11 are back on the pitch & we see the familiar Blue & White again.

Re: From Dallas to Blackburn.

Ethiaa, thanks for reading. I am honored! I see you set him straight. Good job. Also, wasn't Big Sam lobbying for managing England's team at the time? I have another article in the works. I hope to be a proper & able spokesperson for the club we love. I have nowhere near the knowledge as any of you,...

From Dallas to Blackburn.

Hey, guys, Most of y'all know part of my story- a Texan who happened upon Blackburn Rovers in recent times. I submitted a piece to D3D4football.com about my football odyssey. I would be pleased if you took a look. I know nobody is pleased to be in League One, but maybe it will be a brief journey. If...

Re: Relegation Stay or Go

I never had the hatred many did for Lowe. Well, we are truly starting over. The last of our PL holdovers are gone. Its a new day for Blackburn Rovers. Academy Youth will get their big chance now. Its going to have to be a balance. we cant just assume we'll be ok using the youth players we already h...

Re: Value of Rovers

Interesting, the top 7 PL clubs all have a gd of at least +20. The other 13 clubs all have negative gd's. I haven't checked on money, but I bet the top 7 spend a great deal more than the rest.

ManC spent £176 mil last year, & are said to be spending £200 mil this year. Obscene.
