Re: Venkys Debt...

Howdy partners, Happy(ish)Rover here, can't login on my other account, too frustrated to explain why lol anyways I had a thought the other day relating to the clubs wage bill and a possible way to half it, here goes - Given players careers are relatively short would it not be possible to offer as a...

Re: Probability of relegation

The probability of relegation has been high all season long. A couple of years ago we were a mid-table side under Gary Bowyer. But since then we've seen an exodus of talent from the side: Duffy, Hanley, Kilgallon, Spurr, Olsson, Cairney, Marshall, King, Rhodes and Gestede have all left, all of whom ...

Re: Tony Mowbray

Bowyer didn't manage us for just 16 games, did he? :doh: 108 games, 38 wins to 30 defeats, a win ratio comaprable to your beloved Sam. And there's a good chance that would have been better had he not had to work under a transfer ban and strict squad restrictions for the last year, with key players b...

Re: RB Leipzig Celebrations, but ... Disqualification?

Maybe the controversy over Robert Maxwell owning Derby and Oxford is getting lost in time?

Re: RB Leipzig Celebrations, but ... Disqualification?

It's obviously quite right that two teams owned by the same organisation shouldn't be allowed to "compete" with each other.

Re: Tony Mowbray

:lol: I suppose the wretched time he had at Villa, the farce whilst he was here and the poor start he made with Wolves were just teething problems then? He's a fantastic manager, only taken him 5 years and 3 clubs to get a side winning more often than it loses... over 8 games... :lol:

Or hopes she will... Labour MPs might just vote against it regardless of what the official line is just for shits and giggles. The House of Commons backed the PM by a margin of 522 votes to 13, above the two-thirds majority needed... I worry for anyone who couldn't work that last bit out for themse...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Barnsley, 8 April 2017

And yet in the past you've frequently pointed out how ridiculous it is to get upset at not winning away games.... Indeed. But there's a difference between not winning an away game viewed in isolation, and losing an 18th game of the season, twice as many as you've won. You seem to keep trying to ang...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Barnsley, 8 April 2017

We aren't down just yet, chaps. Not looking great, granted, but not down yet. It's almost as if we needed something from either the Brighton or Reading games, just to keep in touch... :yeahright: Or get something from the home fixture against a mid table Barnsley side..... a much more realistic tar...

Well technically, given Clinton's rhetoric, it was more likely to start under her over clashes with Russia in Syria.

Re: Reading fan chat - Reading v Blackburn 4th April 2017

I don't think it matters much who we have in our run-in. 6 games without a win, only 9 from 40 all season. Unless one of the teams directly above us completely collapses, we're going to need to win 2, probably three of the reamaining 6 matches. I have little faith in this team doing that, they're th...

Re: Brighton vs Blackburn, 1 April 2017

So you don't think if we won all 6 games after the Reading game, that we would comfortably stay up? :yeahright: The whole point is that we can lose to both Reading and Brighton and it absolutely not matter. As I said, anything we get from them is an absolute bonus, which takes pressure off us getti...
