Blackburn Rovers v Scunthorpe United Sat Dec 30th KO 3pm

Post by Darth Rover » Thu Dec 28, 2017 5:28 pm

Last game of the year folks. Totally forgot about that day in May at Brentford and looking forward to bringing in 2018 with our second double of this season. Our first double league victory confirmed last Saturday against Rochdale may have proved a slightly more easier task than this Saturdays visitors. The Iron as they call themselves are just behind Rovers in the league. Rovers are unbeaten against the top half teams in League One and will be looking to continue that record.

I would love to read that paper on the theory of creasability.

If you're doing iron mike, you need to do magic mike as well, just for the lay-dees.

And where's the Trump-speech option? Or ---------?

Poor show all round.

At least Trump’s mentioned in the thread title:

‘Strumphorpe’.

Tough game today. Win and we are 3 points behind Wigan. They have a much better goal difference. Just need to keep chipping away. They have had to 0-0 in a row so hopefully their goals have started to dry up and doubts start to creep in. A win today would be amazing.

Conway and Nuttall the latest to be poleaxed with the bloody bug.

First half has been solid for both sides. I would have to say that Blackburn are up statistically, but that doesn't mean much at the end of the match. With Whittingham and Antonnsson on the same side, it is very apparent which side is the weakest on the pitch for Rovers, but hopefully there is a switch coming up to get Whittingham off.

If you told me Whittingham would be starting against 4th in the league and we would be 1-1 at HT I would have taken it. Need to get to 55-60 mins level and then take him off.

Graham is a great scorer at this level. I sense a HT today.
