Re: The future's bright, the future's Allardyce

Me thinks the future with BFS is bright. I don't think there is another Manager around who can do the job that was required at Rovers last season and the coming season after the mess Ince left. The player's he has brought in don't suggest to me that it's going to be all the big slog upfield and hope...

Re: Do we want to buy a Kamel?

Rovers buying a Kamel.........makes a change from buying donkeys..........An Algerian too that means just when you need them they bugger off to the African nations cup for a month. If this goes through and Rovers spend say 2 million does that mean the rest of the transfer kitty maybe 10 million goes...

Re: who will replace santa cruz ??

Has many of you probably know Peter Crouch is off to Spurs and Darren Bent is in talks with Sunderland. If both these transfers go through then that leaves Rovers probably having to look abroad. Not that i would want to see Bent at Rovers. If Big Sam wasn't at Leeds yesterday then dare i say he was ...

Re: who will replace santa cruz ??

I WASN'T SHOUTING AND I NEVER LOSE MY TEMPER :doh: I just hope Sam doesn't panic buy which i don't think he will. Maybe he might be better waiting until the January sales. Probably Mark Hughes will be unemployed by then which is my bet for the first managerial casualty. The way things are at the mo ...

Re: who will replace santa cruz ??

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON REGARDING THE PURCHASE OF A QUALITY STRIKER. It seems every available striker in the premier league and abroad as been mentioned but so far nothing. It's not far off the new season so surely if anyone is gonna come in it's got to be sooner rather than later. What is ...

THE DIRTY DOZEN

I expect some football purists will be thinking Rovers might start playing the needs must type of football. Perhaps a return to the early days of Mark Hughes where the idea was if we can't win then were gonna make sure you don't. To play this type of footy you need certain types of players. I rememb...

Re: Barry Ferguson

Barry Ferguson left rovers with not many good friends. He didn't live up to expectation the last time he graced the premier league. Thing is the premier league was hard then its even tougher now. As for being homesick i know Blackburn isn't the most desirable place to live but after watching the fil...

Re: Derbyshire on loan to Olympiakos for rest of season.

Latest on Matt Derbyshire is Rovers have agreed verbally with Olympiakos on a transfer. BFS must really need the money for a decent new striker cos i can't think why Rovers would let Matt go. Does this also mean the end of Paul Gallagher?...Ok i know both these forwards haven't really established th...

Re: new fixtures

What would be ideal is an away fixture on the first day at a team you would expect to finish in the top ten. Rovers caught Everton out last season with a win at Goodison park. I don't think Rovers would have expected a result against the toffees at Goodison later in the season so a repeat of the sam...

Re: End of season reviews.

As we all know Rovers season didn't get going until BFS came in. If you take the results into consideration Rovers under BFS got 28 points out of 21 played. Thats an average of 1.33 per game. If we can assume that if the Board and in there far superior wisdom had not given the job to Ince and given ...

Re: Wenger interested in Santa Cruz

Hi All, Once again today there are reports of Roque Santa Cruz stating a desire to play for a bigger club and leave Rovers. I seem to remember him playing for a bigger club namely Bayern Munich. I can't put exact figures on this but didn't he score more for the Rovers last season and the entire time...

Re: Joey Barton

Hi All, Ok Joey Barton is gonna be a big risk to any club he goes too. I think though no matter what you think about him you have got to look at the facts. Bottom line is Rovers don't have the financial clout to compete with other clubs in the championship nevermind the premiership. I seem to rememb...
