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.

Re: War with Russia then?

Hilarious listening to Chris Williamson MP on the radio this morning, he seems to want to be the poster boy for gross stupidity. We should have inspected the site first - the Russians won't allow it. We should have waited for UN backing - the Russians will veto it. We should have talked first - Syri...

Re: War with Russia then?

I doubt it'll escalate to a war with Russia. Putin may like to antagonise, but I don't think he's suicidal. He'd be risking too much over too little in this case. The way they'll fight is to sow doubts and destabilise western governments rather than push for mutual destruction. Britain needs to get ...

Even Bennett tweeted last night about needing rest
"Fantastic away following on a Tuesday night @Rovers another point on the board and 1 defeat in 30 games. Got to rest up now and prepare for another road trip Saturday. Safe travels"

Re: NEW DATE - Gillingham v Blackburn, Tue 10 April 2018, KO 19:25

We need a spot of youth on the pitch to create a bit of fire and raw enthusiasn. I'd love to see Travis on the pitch and Williams needs a game on the bench, A pity Nyambe is injured - he's an attack minded full back. I suppose what I'm saying is that Mowbray needs to freshen the team up - preferabl...

Re: NEW DATE - Gillingham v Blackburn, Tue 10 April 2018, KO 19:25

I think the frustration is we don't yet have much idea of what we need to secure promotion, beyond winning every game. A win last night would have just given a little bit more comfort. But we're still 5 points ahead of Shrewsbury, they may have a game in hand but they have to win it and we'll still ...

Re: NEW DATE - Gillingham v Blackburn, Tue 10 April 2018, KO 19:25

When you get so used to winning, a draw can feel like a defeat, but we're another point closer to promotion.

So waving a chainsaw around as you walk through a crowded shopping centre is only dangerous if you intend to cut people to shreds?
Did you ever see the guy chainsaw juggling at one of the world snowsports events? Whilst he was on someone's shoulders?
Was he doing it intentionally?

Re: Blackburn v Southend, Sat 7 Apr 2018, KO 15:00

So what you're saying here is that the perpetrator's intention is important, yes? And that you're going with innocent until proven guilty? ;) Innocent until the courts stop pissing around and exhaust the opportunities to appeal... Since you can't conclusively prove intentions, they're only really a...

Re: Blackburn v Southend, Sat 7 Apr 2018, KO 15:00

Eh? :shrug: Is Henderson dead? Is that the neighbour that heard the screaming? Er, no, the Shrewsbury goalkeeper? Bumping into a goalie whether on purpose or not can't be murder if the 'keeper wasn't killed... which is where the comparison to Pistorius will always diverge - he did shoot and kill so...
