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

Might be my imagination, but for years Rovers have seemed to play well against the better sides, but performed dIsmally against the bottom clubs. Not sure what a psychologist would make of this!

Middlesbrough down to ten men, then Mulgrew cracks a brilliant free kick. 1-0 Rovers

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

Same starting eleven as last week with Lenihan on the bench. Travis must be perplexed why he's not even on the bench - imo a far more aggressive and attacking player than Evans.

One thing I'd bet my house to a cup of tea on..............the Media will drag out Alan Shearer for his comments.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday , Sat 1st Dec 2018, KO 15:00

Hats off to Tony Mowbray who wasn't tempted to make wholesale changes after the Preston and Wigan matches.
Downing played well and Travis looked very strong in the few minutes he was allowed. I like this lad, his time can't be very far away.

Re: 2018/19 Season

What worries me about our season so far is that every winning match has been by the odd goal, yet we've been thrashed 4-1 (twice) and 3-1. Everyone was demanding creative midfielders in August, but it's the defence that now needs some attention.

Lenihan may be carrying an injury - got no problems if Rodwell plays.

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

I wish people would stop floating the idea that Dack is a £25M footballer. Despite the rumours re West Brom I can't see anyone wanting to pay more than £15M tops. Since he's been marked out of games he hasn't done a great deal in the last few matches. I still think he's probably Rovers' biggest asse...

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

We have to make more use of Brereton and Rodwell. Williams might have cut it in Div 1, but hasn't stepped up to the Championship. Not convinced by Mowbray's forward line today. Neither Palmer nor Dack are centre forwards, Dack loses his effectiveness when leading the line. We should wipe our noses a...

I f Mowbray can help Rodwell to regain his England form, his selection over Evans would be a no brainer.

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

As he is in such good form, I'd be tempted to give Rodwell a crack at defensive midfielder in place of Evans -(not sure if he played twice last weekend ).

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Rotherham, Sat 10 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

Either I'm blind or stupid (my wife would say both) but the player no one ever mentions is Jack Rodwell. Yet for me he never put a foot wrong last Saturday.When we talk about Mowbray's brilliant signings, I'd put Rodwell up there among them.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Rotherham, Sat 10 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

I think you could quite easily see that lineup 15 minutes into the second half of any game. I would also like to see Travis get a bit more game time.
At the risk of getting excommunicated or similar, I don't think that Mulgrew could have played any better than Rodwell did on Saturday.
