Re: Blackburn v Oxford, Sat 5 May 2018, KO 17:30

I think that while we still have a chance of winning the league title, Mowbray will play his strongest team. I would however give Travis a start, imo he's a far better attacking option than Evans.

Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

To avoid any further confusion, particularly to my self, I was talking about Scott Wharton. My somewhat pathetic excuse is that , well, I have been going to Ewood for near on 70 years. Whereas I can remember Douglas, Dobing, Dougan Vernon and Mcleod as an exceptional forward line, and before them Mo...

Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

Players coming through the youth system are the best possible value a football team can have. We seem to have a vintage crop with Nyambe, Houghton, Travis, Lenihan, Nuttall and Wharton either established or knocking on the door. It would be ludicrous to discard these lads because they are unproven i...

Re: Charlton v Blackburn, Sat 28 April 2018, KO 15:00

Couldn't agree more about Travis, he deserves a start. I'd also like to see Samuel have a start as cf. If Conway is injured we don't have a single fit recognised winger in the squad, a Mowbray priority, although of course we may have a couple of youngsters who may be given a chance. I don't follow t...

Re: Charlton v Blackburn, Sat 28 April 2018, KO 15:00

I think Caddis gives us a reasonable back up for Nyambe but I can't make my mind up about Samuel - the other starters against Charlton are dross and should go. Mowbray seems to like Evans so I expect him to stay. Samuel is a big powerful centre forward who has been asked to play on the wing. I reall...

Both
Mulgrew and Raya were struggling at the end of the Donny match - they may both get a rest, especially as Mulgrew will want to play next Saturday.

Re: The Blackburn Rovers 'We Are Going Up' Celebration Thread

Strange the things that stick in your mind. i shan't forget a match against Bolton when Roberts collected the ball on the half way line, took it to the edge of the penalty area then cracked it in.
Pity he didn't do it more often!
