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

At the start of the campaign, I'd have been happy it being February and not concerned with relegation. However seeing the season play out, I can help but feel the team has left too many points on the pitch. I'm a bit dissatisfied to see us drift into mid table mediocrity as I think we can play with ...

Re: Brentford v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 2 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Dreadful performance. It's as if going up 2-0 ten min the lads thought the game was over. Hope the injuries are minor.

2-1 after 14 minut
es!
Would rather go into the break down 2-1, than go in 2 up and concede right after the break. Seems as though the lads dropped off after going 2 up early. Need to make sure the next goal is ours.

He has a huge questionmark over his ability to stay fit, but he's certainly an exiting young player who we already know enjoys playing here. Worth the risk.
I read that the fee was only 200k, albeit with hearty sign on fees. At that price hes basically a free. Good bit of business.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Hull City, Sat 26 Jan 2019, KO 15:00

The carrot of premiership tv money, even if relegated after one campaign, and parachute payments that follow are worth trying to push on. That money, especially for a club like ours, can go a long way in building a youthful club that can compete in the top flight for years....provided we dobt use th...

Excellent first half, would like to see us come out and get the next goal to put the match to rest

Re: FA Cup: Newcastle v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 5 Jan, KO 17:30

Another goal conceded in the last 10 minutes that costs us. Is it possible the lads lack fitness to finish off 90 min?

Re: Rovers/Birmingham City

I think looking at his enthusiasm today and desire to win headers, Brereton no longer has the 'buzz' he had after his move here, big price tag, compliments in the media, excited fans. He now waits on the bench for 70 or 80 minutes to go and play winger with some other round pegs playing in square a...

Venkys must be questing why they allow Mowbray to spend more than 1mil per player, his 'cheap' buys have been good, it seems he doesn't know how to spend a decent lump of cash. £7,000,000 WASTED!
We haven't bought him yet. I'd say hes more of a long term investment than instant reward.

Re: Rovers/Birmingham City

I can't jump off the wagon this quick on TM. Besides, its the defending now. It's defending now but it's been lack of goals all season, he won't play players where they play best, is he thick? No doubt we dropped points on too many occasions, but being 2nd place in league one last campaign its unre...

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
