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

Rovers are unlikely to be promoted and equally unlikely to be relegated. Out of all cup competitions so Tony Mowbray is using the rest of the season to look at his current squad and ask himself who does he not need for next season. If the objective for next season is challenge for promotion then the...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Bristol City, Sat 9 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Bristol City have now won eight games in a row. They kept Rovers at bay comfortably and when you are at home and do not create and convert what chances you have a good side will punish you for it. No complaints from me about todays result. Rovers need two or three players that will make the differen...

Re: Willem Tomlinson

He has now signed for Mansfield. Good luck to WT with his career. From a Rovers point of view they have invested many years in this lad and let him walk away for nothing. Surely Rovers knew he wanted to leave or did he just knock on Tony Mowbray's door on the last day of the transfer window and ask ...

Re: Brentford v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 2 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

Rovers lost the game when Dack and Graham left the field of play. If Brentford needed a boost it was just what they needed. I would have thought when Dack went off Rothwell would come on. Brereton's confidence must be really shot by now and this result will do him no favours. We cannot grumble overa...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Transfer deadline day folks. Tony Mowbray said to be looking for competition for Danny Graham. Just seen Rudy Gestede has turned down a move to Millwall. How about Andy Carroll on loan?

Re: Mike Harrison R.I.P.

My dad remembered Mike Harrison when i mentioned him over the weekend. His memories of footballers from the 50's and 60's is fantastic but dont ask him what happened last week. He even remembers the singer Tom Jones in a chippy in Nelson after a show in the 60's.

Welcome back Harry. I do hope we will see him play in Rovers colours this season rather than loaning him out.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Rovers have been given permission to talk to Harry Chapman. If the transfer doesn't happen this week it never will. Harry was left out of boro's FA Cup game yesterday so it looks like he will not be a boro player for much longer. Tony Mowbray has indicated that if he becomes a Rovers player he might...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Hull City, Sat 26 Jan 2019, KO 15:00

Great performance and win. Three points off the play offs which put Rovers in a great position. I am a bit undecided on what i want for Rovers now. I thought of maybe a gradual progression that maybe might see us challenge for promotion next season but i have since changed my mind. Make hay while th...
