Re: Middlesborough v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 08 Dec 2018, KO 15:00

The next 4 matches present a challenge. But I reckon that if this team desires to be in the hunt for promotion it's this streatch will make it a reality. Get through the end of the month within 6 points of the playoffs and I fancy our chances, and would hope to bring in a few pieces in January to ma...

Re: Middlesborough v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 08 Dec 2018, KO 15:00

Going into the match, if have been happy with the point. After going up a goal and a man I'd expect 3. Feels like a dropped 2 points now

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 24 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

I don't think it's time to overreact just yet. This is a battering for sure, but I think it's a matter of tactics. When we go down, it's all in on hoof ball. I think in January you look for another Reed type where he can make things happen from the midfield, or another creative winger. Armstrong di...

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 24 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

Terrible result this. Really an inflection point in the season. I hate to over react, but I think this result shows were not play off material. Best to sell Dack in January and look to add more young talent. Were 2-3 years from making a promotion push.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

https://www.teamtalk.com/news/exclusive-man-utd-liverpool-leading-big-six-in-battle-for-blackburn-forward May be a short stint with us...would be a shame not to get some compensation if we cant get him to agree to terms.

Shame this, but at least we got one back. 25 shots certainly should lead to more goals than 1

Re: Carabao Cup: Bournemouth v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 25 Sept 2018, KO 19:45

Good to know. I'd be surprised if we appeal it. Mulgrew is back for Saturday so it's a suspension we can cope with. Have to agree with Mowbray I thought their pen was very soft. It's a silly card to take. All he needed to do was fall on the ball when he lost footing, and grabbed as he went down. He...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Rumor has it Leicester is going to offer 10 million for Dack come January. I'd hate to see him go, but if he does go for that price it would be a good bit of business

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Nyambe is our most consistent defender bar none. He' needs cover, not competition. Bollocks! Every player needs competition that's how the squad improves. Once you sign on the job of the manager is to bring in someone to replace you. Your job is to make sure they dont. No team is successful by givi...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Reading, Wed, 22 August 2018, KO 19:45

Played like shit in the first half, without Dack, Palmer, and Armstrong and Samuel going of injured and down by 2 at half....I'll happily take a point. Going into the game I wanted 3 points, but to get one from this disaster of a day is a success. Now let's just hope none of these injuries are long ...

Re: Ipswich Town v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 4 August 2018, KO 15:00

Happy with the point on the road, but cant help but feel like 2 years ago, conceding early and late were problems then too. Cant count how often we gave points up in the last 5 min, and also how many times we went down early.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Well it appears were buying Armstrong at full price. Let's hope his success last year was more due to environment than dropping down a league.
