Would be a massive step forward to go and win this game but I think it's more important to not lose. A draw wouldn't be a disaster.

Nice poll Waco. I too have felt the pressure of the poll, it's a scary business :paranoid:

Gallagher's back too :hyper:

Although it's hard to pick 2 of the 3 as they're all playing well.

Pick all three. Drop Lowe. Keep the ball in their penalty area. Tell Steele he's got time for a pie if he wants while he's guarding the half way line. Win 17-0.

What odds are you offering on the pie thing?

glad no one has chosen Babe Ruth...he was obviously huge to the Yankees, but he wasn't even the Cap'n. That was Lou Gehrig. At this point, we hope Mowbray doesn't have to don a uniform! (But he might play some hard-nosed defence, at that!)

I favored what Charlie was to Angels...he gave the assignment, they went out & kicked ass.

Cant see too many changes tonight from the cup game, which I expect Mowbray must of watched.

So fully expect him to keep Emnes up front with Graham, especially as he seems to like him due his time at Middlesborough.

Burton have some injury problems and only played 48 hours ago, so should be a piece of piss then!!!!!! :doh:

Watched the highlights of cup match; Emnes looked like Houdini out there. I like him better every time I see him.

Anymore love for what Mick is to the Stones? Noisy frontman to the longest running act in rock history!

4/1.
25/1 special offer double that he whips out a pie but has to leave the pitch to find ketchup.

There's an overwhelming flood of pessimism on this board ;) 8/11's of us expect disastrous results are in store for Blackburn Rovers, not salvation.

We shall see!

All Rovers so far. Just need to get that first half goal to make the dominance count!

Rovers tissue-paper defence at it again. 5 minutes of very moderate pressure, and we're undone :doh:
