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

2-0 up at half time. Big start to the match as Rovers get a Graham and Dack special. Really putting pressure on Stoke up the ante on offense. So far, Rovers have been most threatening. Stoke have been playing a rather casual game thus far. If Rovers make a change up top around the 60th minute for Br...

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

Couple of changes being made. No Mulgrew, but Conway, Armstrong and Palmer see the bench as Harrison Reed gets his first start, and Bennett and Graham get the start as well.

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

I feel Palmer has progressed recently on defense. He still has his lapses, but during Derby, there were times where he tracked back well and made a good attempt to stop crosses coming on. However, I would still like to see Rothwell given the chance to start over him. Palmer gets sketchy at times and...

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

He should be. He was only out with illness. So I list him as probable. At this point, we have a rather deep (for our standard) bench to pull from for starters. I would like to see Smallwood on the bench and maybe start Brereton up top and see how that goes. Other than that, Palmer sees the bench for...

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

It's very possible that we see Reed start this match over Smallwood or Evans. I imagine not playing Rothwell is a bummer because he is full of energy. At this point, Stoke seem like a hard team on paper, so I imagine Danny Graham gets the start while we keep trying to get Brereton to play that targe...

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

Another tough fixture, expect to see Rothwell or Reed to start over Evans. Maybe even see Smallwood on the bench as well.

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

Holy crap did that shoot the nerves. Really a point earned after seeing that match. Backs against the wall pretty much the first half. Second half was a little more even. Wouldn't have guessed that Mulgrew missing would have this effect, but that's where we sit. Really don't know what to say for Rov...

Armstrong off for Reed. Good defensive substitution.

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

Right at the end of the half, Rovers started to find some space and chance to get a ball in a dangerous position. Honestly, I will be amazed who Mowbray brings on in the second half. It really looks like they can't make a decent pass happen, or get a good touch on the ball. I would suspect Brereton ...

Graham coming on really early, good call because Derby has been dominating. Craig Conway coming off

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

Will be interesting what Mowbray does with the subs in the second half. Really have choices all over, Reed, Rothwell, Brereton, Graham, and Bennett to choose from realistically. I imagine Brereton will be coming on around the 55th-60th minute again.

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

Wouldn't surprise me if Mowbray chooses to go with Armstrong or Brereton up top in place of Graham. Would be an interesting scenario to see 2 up top possibly.

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

With Derby being a spotty team this season, this is a good chance to get back to winning ways.
