Re: Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 23 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Start with small baby steps, and go on to bigger & better things.

A goal on the road, but sadly, no points, is what I’m expecting.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

I’m a bit encouraged here; subs appear to bring some life to our listless squad; perhaps Boro being short on defenders is helping as much as anything.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

Man, we’re a mess.

We need to see some genius by TM in the 2nd half, otherwise we’re losing our 4th in a row.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

It’s starting to look like 0-1 at HT might be the best we can hope for.

Re: Reading v Blackburn Rovers, Wed 13 Feb 2019, KO 20:00

Agreed. I think we’re all disappointed by the last three games, it would be dishonest if we weren’t. A blowout against a bottom half side, and a poor outing (no other way to say it) vs a relegation probable side, and here we are. A win cures most worries. Sometimes even getting a tie is rewarding, i...

Re: Reading v Blackburn Rovers, Wed 13 Feb 2019, KO 20:00

Gaz,
You are probably right. Conway I think he led the EFL in assists over a three year period. But that was awhile back. Graham almost has to score for us to have a chance to win, ditto, Dack. I’m about done with Evans. Bell & Bennett beat anything else back there. Williams not playing says a lot.

Gonna have to do something fast so as not to lose to a League One bound side.

Dack & Graham will need to pull us out of the fire today.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Bristol City, Sat 9 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

I think it's games like Saturday that demonstrate where we are in our development. Similar to the Norwich defeat at home, we can compete in a relatively even game with one of the top sides and a mistake gets punished and you lose 0-1. It happens but we know we're not too far off being a very good s...

Re: Fred Pickering R.I.P.

Great memories, Duggy, thanks for sharing!

Also, I think your comment regarding Everton & strikers is spot-on. Wonder why Everton is as it is?

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Bristol City, Sat 9 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

A lot of the impatient fans look at Blackburn Rovers offensively, & wonder where our scoring was last night. I understand that partly, but as you have said that was a great defending team we hosted. Sure, we can add better players, where they can be found, and considering cost, in time (I still hope...

Re: Mike Harrison R.I.P.

Duggy, I love reading your posts. For a newcomer Rover fan like me, it helps to see what the team has meant to Rovers fans over the years. FYI, I retired in December; my wife is bringing me across the Big Pond for a trip this fall. I hope I can meet you & the others here at Roverstalk, share a pint ...
