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.

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.
Donny beat Bradford tonight. They have reason to be optimistic also this Saturday.

Excellent win for Stanley against Preston last night too.

Yep, Doncaster won, but so did we; lets hope we can take that momentum forward. I still don't really feel we have a side anywhere near capable of walking this division though, the difference in level isn't that much and we were poor last season. So poor thay we can't just blame Coyle for it, as many are.

It's kinda weird; happy that we won, then sad at the realisation that beating a League 2 side is now something to be happy about rather than take for granted.

At least from the highlights and the stats we looked the stronger team.

When have we ever been able to take a win against lower league opposition for granted? :yeahright:

How many 4th-tier sides did we lose competitive games to between, say, 1990 and 2010? I don't know the answer, but I don't remember us being victims of many giant killings

We've never been able to take Coventry for granted, they've been one of our bogey teams for as long as I can remember.
