I know the best polls, let me tell you. They are the best polls. Believe it or not, they are about Blackburn. They are coming in with their best polls, all from Blackburn. And sometimes they aren't sending their best polls. Some of those polls are bad hombres. But when they are the best, you know those polls are coming from Blackburn. That is why I am making an executive order to build a polling center, all across the border of Blackburn, and show their best polls, to Make Blackburn Great Again!

Yup, they and Shrewsbury seem to be masters of it. Slightly worrying I must admit....

Nyanbe is out for 4-6 weeks which is a shame so he'll miss most of our last 9 games which is a shame. Nothing against Caddis but I hope Mowbray goes with Bennett at RB for now.

Whittingham is back although having always been impressed with him before joining Rovers we've not really seen the best of him.

Graham training today so late fitness call on his rib injury.

Sounds like we'll have Chapman and Gladwin back for our next game at home to Bradford which is a boost.

We've seen so much more settled with Bennet playing alongside Smallwood, I'd be happy to see Caddis although my preference would be for Travis to play midfield and Bennet to drop back.
Happy to go along with whatever TM thinks best.
Great news about Chapman - him, Dack, Graham and Armstrong are some attack!

It's all a conspiracy, he's doing it to get out of signing a contract with Middlesbrough, sign on at Blackburn.

Personally I would like to see Travis start the match, and have Caddis off the bench. I like Bennett in either spot of central mid or right back.

Travis played last night so won’t be him.

TM might go 3 at the back (Lenihan/Mulgrew/Williams) and Bennett and Bell as wing backs. Or a back 4 with Caddis at right back. A couple of options so not disastrous, though Nyambe has been playing really well.

I hope Graham is fit because I think he and Dack get the best out of each other. Graham of late been showing why he was an absolute must signing....

I dont agree with shifting players into different positions just because one player is injured. Caddis is in the squad to back up the right back position when needed. Bennett and Smallwood have been the best midfield pairing Rovers have had this season so dont break that up to bring in Evans or Whittingham. Shocking news about Harry Chapman but we have Gladwin back... :? If there is one major problem with the Rovers squad it is beyond the first team there are a number of players who havent done there bit yet to get us back in the championship. Rovers have the finishing line in sight but Wigan and Shrewsbury could over take us leaving us at the mercy of the play offs....no thanks.
