Re: Swansea City v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 23 Oct 2018, KO 19:45

When the same 18 players were nominated for the match and the same 11 players started I felt alarm bells ringing. I just don't subscribe to the 'don't change a winning team theory'. The team needed freshening, I'd have played Brereton as cf from the start and used Danny as sub. Palmer, Rothwell,Trav...

Re: Swansea City v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 23 Oct 2018, KO 19:45

Swansea dominating second half, 2-1 to the Swans,
look like scoring more. Brereton sounds as though he is having a poor game, Dack inexplicably asked to play up front on his own.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Leeds United, Sat 20 Oct 2018, KO 12:00

But wasnt it great to see the Darwen end full?
Agree with all the comments re Dack/Brereton. Even in his post match interview Mowbray admitted that Brereton scored more goals in training than anyone else.
Mowbray will get it right, I also believe he may well get us promoted.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Leeds United, Sat 20 Oct 2018, KO 12:00

Best game of the season from a spectator's point of view, two good attacking sides. Absolutely no doubt in my mind that Rovers will be up there challenging at the end of the season. Are Nuttall and Samuel injured? When Danny came off in the second half Dack was asked to play on his own up front. He ...

One of my fav matches, Rovers v Leeds. Their supporters fill up all the Darwen end of the ground.

Re: Are you satisfied with the results thus far?

By now Mowbray will know what he must do in January to give us that extra little push that will get us into the play offs. Fortunately we've had no serious injuries although Dack must be a worry- like Rhodes, the big lights are flashing at him and the lad must be tempted by a possible move into the ...

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

So there I was, just finishing dinner in my hotel in Bulgaria, wandered over to the bar/lounge as there was football on, probably some Bulgarian or German side but, wait a minute, is that Dack on the ball? And it was, watched the last hour of the match live, a real treat. Although Bolton dominated t...

Re: Carabao Cup: Bournemouth v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 25 Sept 2018, KO 19:45

Nyambe is only 20, he should be able to play four times a week. I wonder just how far we have to get in this competition before the manager and fans take it seriously. When one thinks of the excitement and crowds created by our relatively recent home cup matches against Liverpool and United, I'd be ...

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

Listening to Radio Lancs on Saturday, my heart rate has only just returned to normal. Rovers NEVER do anything easy. When Lenihan gave away the penalty my wife rushed upstairs and demanded to know what I was shouting about.
All's well that ends well I suppose.

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

Have to say I'm a bit perplexed about the Brereton signing. At a reported 7million, and without a start in the league this year, he is one hell of an expensive reserve.

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

I've just watched the Rovers v Villa match that my wife recorded for me. I thought the team looked far more threatening after Reid and Brereton replaced Evans and Smallwood. Rothwell I would always play at some stage, but I fear Conway is past his best. If Charlie is fit I wouldn't be surprised to s...

Re: Where are they now?

I seem to remember him cutting in from the left wing and scoring a cracking goal.
