Re: Bolton v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 6 Oct 2018, KO 17:30

Bolton were the home team and failed to take that advantage. Phil Parkinson said they dominated the game. No you didnt Phil. Rovers started the game better and got in front. You either go looking for a second or you play a bit more conservatively. Rovers did the latter although they do need to impro...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield United, Wed 3 Oct 2018, KO 19:45

Sheffield United won the league one championship the season before last and made an impressive start in the championship last year. That is something we would have liked to see Rovers emulate but we are not that far off.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Nottingham Forest, Sat, 29 Sept 2018, KO 15:00

Bad defending to blame. Rodwell should have tried to show him down the outside rather than let him run into the middle. You stick out a foot and the attacker is going to fall over it.

Re: Stoke v Blackburn Rover, Sat, 22 Sept 2018, KO 15:00

Very good win. Stoke will probably say they were unlucky but when you are three down with twelve minutes to play you deserve to be beaten. Its difficult to see why Rovers neatly blew it. Stoke got one back and then some substitutions in quick succession might have disturbed the concentration. Then a...

Re: Derby County v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 18 Sept 2018, KO 19:45

Good performance tonight and job well done. Rovers had to exorcise the last away defeat at Bristol and they stood up to the challenge. Tony Mowbray got his substitutions right with the introduction of Bennett and Reed when Derby were pressing hard for goal. Graham for Conway sounds like it was enfor...

Mulgrew out due to illness and DG starts from the bench. Williams in for Mulgrew and Craig Conway comes into the team and captains the team.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Aston Villa, Sat, 15 Sept 2018, KO 17:30

On reflection league One was a walk in park for Rovers and Wigan. Both are finding the challenge of championship football more difficult and that is an obvious statement. You have to work harder for your chances and slip ups tend to be punished more. It doesnt take much though to turn and average ch...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Aston Villa, Sat, 15 Sept 2018, KO 17:30

Good start to the season for Rovers overall. Placed mid table and apart from the second half at Bristol City Rovers have competed well. Some disappointing late goals conceded but thats football. Rovers are work in progress regarding building a good squad and the fear that Rovers would find the Champ...

Re: Where are they now?

Marvin Emnes has signed for Vancouver Whitecaps. Would have liked to see him back at Rovers and seen him play under better circumstances than the relegation season.

Re: Bradley Dack

Dack in Court for breaching community order. For an assault on a Police officer. He’s pleaded to avoid any jail time and Mowbray appeared in court to speak about him. Community order and hours have been extended. So something we’ll have to manage over the next 7 months. He only lives five minutes a...

Re: Bristol City v Blackburn Rovers, Sun 2 Sept 2018, KO 13:30

Last team to beat Rovers in the league was Plymouth. They are currently bottom of league one. Fortunes in football can change quickly. Its best just forget this game and do your best in the next game.

Re: Bristol City v Blackburn Rovers, Sun 2 Sept 2018, KO 13:30

If Dack and Armstrong are fit to play i would start the game with them. From a Bristol point of view i would be worried about Dack in particular. Why start him on the bench when he is the best chance of winning the game. Interesting this morning that Gareth Southgate said he is considering Champions...
