Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

A bit hard that, Mcteeth. Bearing in mind that it was an evening match, that Newcastle have been playing abysmally, and that Rafa selected a weak team, I hold my hat off to the the Newcastle supporters who turned up in their droves. I like teams that bring major support to Ewood - Newcastle, Leeds, ...

Re: Millwall V Blackburn Rovers, Sat 12 Jan, KO 17:30

Great result, thank you Armstrong and Travis. I'm not sure that Mowbray's selection dilemma will involve Travis - the best centre midfielder we've had since Tugay imo -but more what to do with Rodwell. I know he's not put a foot wrong at centre half,but I believe that a midfield of Rodwell, Travis a...

Re: Rovers youth and reserve teams.

I agree re Johnson, but fear we'll lose him . TM has a three year contract, can't see Johnson staying around that long.

I think you may soon have to be adding Travis into your second list.

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

I think we were handed a large advantage when Burnley won and United beat Newcastle in the week. This piled the pressure on Benitez and I wouldn't be surprised to see him field an exceptionally weak team. For Rovers I think Travis has played himself into a regular first team spot, Armstrong will be ...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v West Bromwich Albion

Frankly I don't think Brereton is in the same league as Danny, he's done nothing to show he deserves a start and doesn't know where the goal is.
I'd prefer to see a midfield of Rodwell, Travis and Reid, that would liven things up a bit

Blackburn Rovers v West Bromwich Albion

Not quite panic stations yet, but one win from the last nine games isn't good enough. Too many people relying on 'easier matches ahead' when a few weeks ago the comments were more akin to 'anyone can beat anyone in this league', Tomorrow's team I expect to be rather ore conventional than Saturdays. ...

Re: Sheffield United v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 29th Dec 2018, KO 15:00

It might sound harsh, but Lenihan and Williams make far too many costly mistakes. Not sure how to combat this, although I think Rodwell might have a part to play.
