Re: QPR v Blackburn Rovers, Fri 20 April 2019, KO 15:00

Burnley were quite relaxed about taking Robbo on as goalkeeping cover. Joe Hart anyone?

Reed gone? Not heard that.
Would prefer Rodwell alongside Travis.

Re: QPR v Blackburn Rovers, Fri 20 April 2019, KO 15:00

I think Mowbray has shown that when Rovers have matches close together he likes to utilise the fringe players. I would bet that the backward passing non shooting defensively dominated Evans will find his name on the team sheet in one of the next two games. Danny definitely won't play 180 minutes, pe...

Re: 2018/19 Season

we'll have to agree to disagree. Don't you think that say, the thousands of Portsmouth supporters that have followed their team virtually to the edge of annihilation deserve a spot of promotion? An object lesson in loyalty.They have done nothing wrong. it's the management, managers and players that ...

Re: 2018/19 Season

Leeds deserve promotion purely on the strength of their support. Will miss the atmosphere of Rovers v Leeds. Fulham,Brighton and Cardiff aren't very good substitutes although Huddersfield bring a few supporters.

Re: Nottingham Forest v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 13 April 2019, KO 15:00

Two weeks, two superb goals from Rothwell. I think we are approaching our best team,Travis alongside either Rodwell or Reed with Rothwell and Dack behind Graham. The defence still needs attention though, great that Nyambe can challenger Bennet, Lenihan is a shoe in, but a couple of quality defenders...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v 'Frank Lampard's' Derby County, Tue 9 April 2019, KO 19:45

I know travis is home grown, but I sincerely hope he's on a decent contract, and Reed was a revelation last night. More than once a Derby player had the ball and lost it to Reed because he got there so quickly. I have to apologise for not mentioning Conway who imo had his best game of the season las...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v 'Frank Lampard's' Derby County, Tue 9 April 2019, KO 19:45

I hardly recognised the Rovers team last night from the one we've been watching the last few weeks. The difference was the speed -Travis, Reed and Rothwell gave us an element that's been missing all season, in fact I'm annoyed that these three have been made to spend so much time on the bench this y...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City, Sat 6 April 2019, KO 15:00

No reason at all why he shouldn't be put on the transfer list - would attract attention from lower league clubs, however, why should he go if he's playing regularly?

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City, Sat 6 April 2019, KO 15:00

Yesterday's match confirmed my worst fears -lack of real quality throughout the team. Didn't help when I heard the team selection, no Dack and the turgid twins in midfield. As usual, absolutely no urgency even when Stoke went ahead. At one stage Lenihan was about to take a free kick half way inside ...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City, Sat 6 April 2019, KO 15:00

I think this game will tell us where our team is at. Apparently Rovers didn't play too badly in the second half last week and we should have a full squad to choose from. Stoke aren't playing well and we are at home. I'll be seriously worried if we can't win this one.

Re: How will Rovers finish 2018-2019 season?

Don't forget that we are in virtually the same position as PNE were a year ago,newly promoted, yet they've become promotion challengers from their own resources, ie without spending a fortune. Hopefully our youngsters and Tony Mowbray are good enough to do the same for Rovers. Anyone fancy Cairney b...
