Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

So wait, this was all practice? Are we in here talkin' 'bout practice? I mean, listen, we talkin' 'bout practice. Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talkin' 'bout practice. Not the game that they go out there and die for, and play every game like it's their last. Not the game, we talkin' 'bout ...

So if we succeed in staying in the championship next season, then the really real work will begin? And then promotion to the Prem will be the really really real work?
Yep, you're getting the hang of it now.

Surely that was the real work too. This is just the next bit of real work.

Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

You're right though, following Rovers you don't get many euphoric moments in the stands so it's special when they do come. I was 11 in 1995 and watched the final day on Sky and sadly missed the Worthington Cup Final but last night tops most of the odd special moments and goals I've witnessed in the...

I think a few on BRFCS already want him sacked on the premise that just because this season's been brilliant, it doesn't mean it will continue next year... :footinmouth:

Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

Managers are the first to take the blame when things go wrong, and I think it's only fair that Tony Mowbray (or is it Mobury?) gets a big slice of the credit for taking us back up. On paper we were favourites for promotion, but I think it's a lot harder to actually generate momentum when the club ha...

So we are getting beat by Barnet. Think it's only a matter of time before vast majority of fans turn on Mowbray now. Some could argue it's better to go out of the cups to focus on the league... But we went out of the League Cup early and it didn't help us focus.
Worth a :necro:

Not claiming to be an expert, but this is what it says on the FL website: 1.4 A Reporting Period is the period over which a Championship Club is assessed for the purpose of the Fair Play Requirement. For each Season the Reporting Period is (subject to Rule 2.2 or Rule 2.3) the immediately preceding ...

Re: Blackburn v Peterborough, Thur 19 April 2018, KO 18:45

They had a special section for it and a guy called Phillip Lingard he seemed to talk knowledgeably but I can't claim to know who's who with that site. :lol: :lol: :lol: Philipl! I should have guessed... I can't work out if he gets a kick out of deliberately misleading people or is just an attention...

Re: Blackburn v Peterborough, Thur 19 April 2018, KO 18:45

Also, I'm loathed to admit it, but out of interest I listened to the latest BRFCs podcast and there was an interesting section on our accounts and if we seal promotion Venky's will be in a position to front load the season with good investment under League 1 FFP before we're officially classified a...

Always amusing to come on after a nice win and see who overreacted to going a goal down... :lol:

Promotion feels within touching distance now.
