Re: Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 23 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Unfortunate to get the draw at the end. Defense giving up a great goal to Che Adams, had him at a difficult angle but unable to stop it. Armstrong at the end making a bombarding run towards Birmingham City's defense, practically beat half the team. Slid the ball across the 6 yard box only for Dack t...

Re: Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 23 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Bell is the culprit again for the easy giveaway, for the Che Adams goal. This is becoming a theme of the season, really hope Mowbray is looking hard for a new left back.

Re: Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 23 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

I can't see Conway leaving as he would be good as cover on the wings. I don't think he could find a starting position at a League 1 club, so if he is willing to be a bench warmer, I think he will stay. Evans and Smallwood, I don't know. If Mowbray is able to bring in a solid box-to-box midfielder, I...

Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 23 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Will this be the match that unrustles our rustling form?

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

If we can secure mid-table finish along with getting some appearances from Davenport and Chapman, I will consider this a successful season. Would also be nice to see Rodwell and Rothwell get starts in the midfield as well.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

I agree on Nyambe. It's a shame he has been dropped. Not having Bennett in midfield really takes the energy out of counter attacking.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

Full time, 4th loss in a row. After going down a man, it was expected. However, our best chances came from the 2nd half. It's quite clear depth at centreback is a big issue. Williams is a bit of a liability at left back and centrally, Mulgrew has his bad games, and Rodwell isn't a centreback. Having...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

Mowbray going with the triple substitution.

Bell, Nyambe, and Travis on for Brereton, Rodwell, and Evans.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

I think Mulgrew magic is over with. I know Mowbray has made a tactical change half way through the first half, but wow there has only been one honest chance from Rovers.

Middlesbrough clearly on a different level.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

I recall Grayson getting that start in the League Cup early in the season, which he looked solid. Otherwise, we really don't give or have a lot in the U-23 system that would benefit us now.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

I think that is a fine lineup. I would like to see Rodwell hit midfield at some point, so maybe see Williams slot in at centreback and push Rodwell up while giving Travis a seat. He looked absolutely toasted at the 80th minute of the Reading match. I think I am slightly disappointed we gave up on Pa...

Bit of a tough one here, hopefully come out with a strong squad and not hold back.

Re: Reading v Blackburn Rovers, Wed 13 Feb 2019, KO 20:00

That is a frustrating loss. So much possession wasted on the first half, second half was a little more even due to a Reading goal from the first half. I'm at a loss as to the solution. I feel like Evans is not the solution in any way, shape, or form in central midfield. It has to be either Smallwood...

Re: Reading v Blackburn Rovers, Wed 13 Feb 2019, KO 20:00

Gave up a really soft goal, 1-0 to Reading.

First half pretty much up. Rovers have dominated possession but absolutely no creativity. Really need to bring on Dack or Graham to make something happen. I think taking off Evans is a must.

Zeffania,
Much better than my first effort... it just needs an arable farmer option! :D
You on the other hand get the Vince Grella Award for trying but somehow injuring your own self-confidence on the first try.
