There are many, many people who use rocks everyday in their lives. Many. And when I mean many, I mean to the likes of which we have never seen before, ever. These rocks are important, too important if you ask me. They help the rock people figure out rock things like shape of a rock, the size of a rock, the color. I mean, the color is just outrageous, rocks come in any color you want. When I started talking to the rock people, I asked them, "is this a rock? I have never seen a rock this color and, believe me, I have seen a lot of rocks." The rock man told me "It's a rock" while also telling me the others were rocks too. I was so amazed by this color of the rock, it had such colors, big colors, many colors. They were vibrant. And shiny. So from this day forward, I, Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, declare today as National Rock Day, and will continue to strive to Make Rocks Great Again!

2-0 now, Antonnsson gets a goal. Starting to run away with it if we get another goal.

Now we are running away with it. Mulgrew makes it 3-0 from the penalty spot.

Need to keep it tight at the back second half. Let another one in and it could be panic stations. Need to pick them off with fast counter attacks.

The pick of the musings from YellowsForum:

Blackburn are real quality. Trying to check that they only have 11 players on the pitch...

No Fockus just focking shite

All round to Kips for a portion of fluoixitine and sertralin with a large brandy

This is a real test for Martin and Tiendalli, they were solid against Argyle now they have to play for the shirt against a good attack with the likes of Dominic Samuel, Bradley Dack and Danny Graham.

Blackburn have had the best away following this season, which may not be that surprising considering a lot of teams are within a 30-50 mile radius of them.

it's nice to have a club with a bit of pedigree here and I just hope the U's can turn it on.

I never knew old monkey head Mowbray was capable of thoughts, well you learn something new every day...

I still haven't got over the trauma of being spanked by Blackburn after we had knocked Swansea out of the cup. Was that really only 661 days ago? I'm not counting.

We always lose 0-3 at home to Blackburn including a penalty. We can’t blame the gaffer for this one

Well this time they got a goal, so 3-0 isn't in their future.

I don't think Nuttall is a true lone striker. His hold up play is inconsistent, really hasn't been impressive. I would like to see a switch to Graham or Samuel second half, I would like off the Nuttall train now.

Great half of football from Rovers only surpassed many years ago in Simon Garner times when we were two down at Portsmouth. Rovers hit back in the second half to win 2-4. Then there was the league cup win away at then UEFA Cup championships Ipswich where Rovers with only eight fit first team players won 3-4. Happy days indeed and if we can go on to beat Oxford tonight it will be up their regarding the best halves of football seen by Rovers in my time.

Nuttall...I hope we get promoted, cause if we don't, I doubt he stays a Rover very long.
