Carabao Cup Blackburn v Burnley, Wed 23 August 2017, 19:45

Discuss all things Rovers related except...

It is something fictional but can we say

Having a "Breaking Bad" (Walter White) character in our team can really help.

An expected result tonight. If anyone needed a reminder of how crap we have become then this was it.

This was a good experience for the players. I hope they don't chase the game around as much for MK, really need to learn from the tape against Burnley and see how they can use it.

So disappointing tonight. I'm not surprised with the result but 0 shots on target is a fucking joke. All week we've heard from the playing staff about how up everyone is for it and how much they know it means to the fans....and that's what we get!

I appreciate we are up against a PL team (albeit a very much second string) but let's have a go lads!! Put some men in the box and compete. But no....just commiting 1 man forward and hoping for the best.

Burnley barely got out of 2nd gear and won comfortably. If they actually had a decent striker I fear it would have been 5-0.

I really hope this negative mentality TM seems to be showing disappears and we start to go for it. Conway/Champan on the wing, with Samuel/Dack up too on Saturday please.

Mowbray didn't see the incident,
Maybe Mowbray should start watching what's going on on the pitch? :idea:

Glad I had little interest in this game, played out as expected and scoreline wasn't embarrassing.

Maybe considering Burnley had just scored, rather than watching the opposition celebrate he was focused on his own side and perhaps trying to motivate them to push on.

Does anyone know if the Burnley players were goading the Blackburn fans or was it just some dickhead losing his marbles?

Maybe a bigger punishment would be giving him a season ticket?
