Re: Calling all parents

I'm Rover the moon to announce the arrival of my daughter Ziora Willow Olanna, who joined us at 17.45 yesterday evening.

Re: Sack race

To then attribute blame to someone you don't like anyway doesn't make your opinion more valid. Eh? Unlike some, I don't decide whether I like someone or not on day 1 and obstinately stick to that opinion regardless of all evidence to the contrary. My dislike of Lambert has been formed based on his ...

Re: Sack race

Well you're already treating each transfer window, the previous January and the summer, as independent without accounting for the cumulative effect of repeated windows where a player is actively trying to leave. It was also the first window after we'd already sold our other 2 main star players whic...

Re: Sack race

Not spinning anything. You're saying Rhodes wanted to go in previous transfer windows - so why didn't he? What changed between the previous transfer windows and the one when he left? Only one key factor - the manager. And before the deal was even completed, Lambert did an interview saying we didn't ...

Re: Sack race

Eventhough Rhodes had wanted to leave in previous transfer windows before Lambert was at the club? :shrug: If anything, that reinforces my point - there was plenty of speculation that Rhodes was going to be sold in prior transfer windows, but the significant difference when he actually went was tha...

Re: Sack race

So you blame Lambert for Rhodes but not Bowyer for Cairney and Gestede? Yes. The difference in situation is plainly obvious. The sales of Cairney and Gestede were forced by the financial mess the club found itself in, none of which could be blamed on the manager who'd actually brought both players ...

Re: Sack race

Coyle set us up for relegation. Fixed it for you. Nah, Coyle was the fall guy. Lambert was the one who undid all the hard work Bowyer had put in, sold our best player and blew the funds we had on a raft of poor forgettable signings (has Elliot Ward left yet?), then walked away leaving whoever took ...

Re: Sack race

Lambert set us up for relegation and ran off so someone else would take the blame. A let down with Villa, us, Wolves and Stoke now... he must have a fanastic agent to still be given opportunities.

Re: Carabao Cup: Bournemouth v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 25 Sept 2018, KO 19:45

Good news, I should have come back to edit my post as Rich Sharpe clarified the Lenihan booking on Twitter. From what was reported it was a straight red for Williams I believe which I always thought was a 3 game ban. But seems to be a 1 game ban. :shrug: Depends what the red card is for - violent c...

Re: Carabao Cup: Bournemouth v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 25 Sept 2018, KO 19:45

Lenihan suspended for Saturday and Williams 3 game ban I’m assuming. Suspensions for bookings only apply in the competition they're picked up in from this season - ie 2 bookings in the LC = 1 LC match ban. I'm not clear on whether Williams was sent off for a second yellow card or a straight red for...

Re: Blackburn v Wigan Athletic, Sunday 4th March 2018, KO 12 high noon

Is the weather bad in Blackburn? If it was in the Home Counties, it would be a state of emergency with the army out and lead headlines on the news. So no. :lol: It seems I owe you an apology after learning the snow was so bad, two Russian assassins tourists were unable to make it to Salisbury cathe...
