Igor Tudor because he will make us great, oh yea. It will be so big, and everyone will talk about how great our club is, and we are going to win. We're going to win so much, there won't be enough seats in the stadium to let everyone see us win. I will start getting calls from other clubs, asking me to stop winning, because we will be winning so much. We will win so much we will be promoted to a much more massive status. We will be in the big league bigly. And that's how Igor Tudor will make Blackburn Rovers Great Again.

A win would be nice for confidence. Otherwise I would like to see a lot of reserves and see what they can do.

If anybody doesn't vote for the Igor Tudor option, there's something wrong with them.

Coventry where once in Division One/Premier league. They have some owners that not many of the fans like. I hope we don't go the same way. Oh yeah they used to have this Celtic and Middlesboro manager who didn't do much for them. 37 years ago we beat Coventry in the FA Cup who where then Division One and we where Division three. When we where Premier league champions they beat Rovers 5-0 in December 1995. Rovers have not beaten Coventry since 1997 when we enjoyed a 4-0 win. The last five meetings have ended win Coventry then the next game a draw, the next game win Coventry then the next game a draw. The next game win Coventry then...can you see where this is going?

I guess we are playing Samuel or Feeney as striker, not sure what this line up is doing.

Looks like this will be a high-scoring affair. Glad Smallwood is on the board.

2-1 Evans and Smallwood on the scoresheet. Doing really good with possession, over 60%

Dominic Samuel makes it 3-1 now. Glad to see the goals flowing after Saturday.

Jack Doyle coming on for Mulgrew. Good to see him get a few minutes.

Any win is a good win. Coventry are league two and made six changes from their previous game starting line up. You would expect Rovers to win well and they did. Good to see Samuel get his first goal for Rovers and with the introduction of Gladwin, Chapman and Doyle it could have been four or five one. Nice to see Smallwood with his first for Rovers and back from injury Evans on the score sheet too. Some positives to take to Ewood Park this coming weekend.

Amen to all the above. I'm rejoicing at the win, I don't really care who it was.

Now, we can get look forward to home opener vs Doncaster.
