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.

Re: Harry Chapman

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...

Re: Jack Rodwell

Italian Serie B club Livorno reported to be interested in signing him. Well he is an England international and at the age of 27 he is in his prime so lets start the bidding at say 20 million...Pounds that is not not Euros

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Ipswich Town, Sat 19 Jan 2019, KO 15:00

A job well done yesterday by Rovers and if the goal post had been a couple of more inches wider the winning margin would have been greater. I kind of feel sorry for the Ipswich fans as they seem to be going through what Rovers fans went through two seasons ago. I wonder how many now regret asking fo...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Ipswich Town, Sat 19 Jan 2019, KO 15:00

Ipswich have pressed the panic button in the current transfer window signing several players including twice former Rover Alan Judge. Their summer signings that were familiar to Rovers from last season have failed to deliver. Nolan and Nsiala from Shrewsbury, Gwion Edwards from Peterboro who played ...

Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

Who cares about the result. Rovers put up a good show and took a premier league team to a replay and gave them two goals start and could have won the game. Unfortunate how things finished but sometimes you get lucky sometimes you don't. There is no blame at all on the Dack miss. He was not well befo...

Re: Sack race

Against Birmingham, yes. They'd got into the playoffs and were resting their team. That's up to them. The league and other teams are not in a position to be making value judgements on who a manager should be playing in which match. Nice != screws their own team to help a different one. Sam Allardyc...

Re: Millwall V Blackburn Rovers, Sat 12 Jan, KO 17:30

Rovers have proven after a return to the championship that they are good enough to stay in this league. It will be nice to keep a ten point or more gap to those who will be playing League One next season so we can have a stress free second half to the season. No real activity in the transfer market ...
