and ask Russia to hack the opponent's goals, so we win. Trust me, we'll win, it will feel so good to be massive winners. We will be the winningest club in the country, there will be so much winning, we will have won it all. It'll be yuuge how big this club will, we will win and be promoted to a more massively yuuge status. I would have my buddy, Cristiano Ronaldo, come join us because he loves winning bigly. And when I say we will be winning bigly, I mean bigly to the big league. And that's how I will Make Blackburn Rovers Great Again

Compounding today's result is the fact Rotherham are absolutely thrashing Southend 4-0 so far.

Stop being cute playing 3 at the back, it's not working.

Before game 1 favourites to win league

After game 2 probably favourites to go down.

Just when you thought it couldn't get more embarrassing than last season...

And that's the game right there with Raya making a blunder.

Might as wells do a review. First, Nyambe is not a central defender. He thrives at right back. Second, 3 centreback system is not working. Third, except Feeney and Conway, we don't have any true wingers. Fourth, Doncaster knew the whole match we are going to pump the ball in the box. It did not work all first half and second half, not sure why Mowbray couldn't see that.

This is just a negative game overall. Definitely a positive learning experience, and hopefully we ditch this silly 3 centreback system.

I'm not worrying too much as Bolton had a rough start to life in league 1 also last season before finishing second.

Quite obvious 3 at the back isn't going to work and that like most young players Raya is going to be prone to the odd crazy mistake like their third.

Disappointing for sure.

It's demoralizing but it's not the end, 44 matches to go. It just would have been nice to get a point or 3 at home first game. But what I can hope for is Mowbray will look to make tactical and formation changes.

Utterly embarrassing that today from the boys. I was worried at the start when I so the lineup and was ultimately proven right. Mowbray has to take full responsibility for that. Too many players look like they think they'll walk this league.
