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.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Tony Mowbray today spoke of Adam Armstrong and Harry Chapman. While maintaining his interest in both of them he admitted they were not top of his list. Sounds like he has other players in mind who he feels have more experience of championship football. You could put Bradley Dack in the same catagor...

Eleven games to go and it looks like Rovers have made an early bid for the finish line.

Re: Peter Whittingham

Average or not noticed from a defensive mid position is when the rolls being played at its best. Providing cover, providing a pivot in back, organizing those in front and connecting passes is all that's asked. It's a role lacking glory.

This would be great if it happens. Chapman showed a lot early this season

Re: Amari’i Bell

Mowbray speaks highly of Amari'i Bell and also makes reference to Derrick Williams contribution this season. Bell has been signed to create competition at left back. Interesting this one. Williams has done good enough job but Mowbray has gone out and brought in some direct competition for his place...

Re: Rovers vs AFC Wimbledon - Sat 16th Sept, 3pm

Wimbledon, Doncaster and Southend have won 4 league games between them and somehow 3 have been over us. :? We really have won the harder games on paper so far. Oh well onto Shrewsbury, I imagine there'll be plenty of changes, especially in midfield given our depth there. Seems as though the lads do...
