Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 24 Nov 2018, KO 15:00

Discuss all things Rovers related except...

Why did Preston settle on the North End?

The farmers found the land much more arable

It's where Igor Tudor built his kiln

The potters already took up the south end with their Nordic Bakeware

A large contingent of kestrels flew around the North End, not through, keeping the cars kestrel poop free

I heard nasty stories about the south. The south was not bringing their best. They are bringing their kestrel poop, and the gibbons are bringing their banana peels for people to slip on. This is something I can't stand for, as these Kestrels and gibbons are bad hombres. Big hombres, ocean sized hombres. They showed how bigly they are willing to bring that poop and those banana peels. That is why I am issuing an executive order on poop and banana peels to Make The North End Great Again!

We need to see Davenport in game time before making that assumption. I know he has glowing reviews of U23 play, but so did Nuttall.
Difference being Davenport has performed at this level already
I keep forgetting he played for Burton last season. I still would like to see him play for us first. Good thing is he is here permanently.

They should find it easy to mark him sat on the bench.

I can feel the three points in the air boys. Could be a turning point of the season for us so I hope it goes well.

If they think Derrick Williams is our stand out man, I smell the 3 points too.

I always feel international breaks have a way to stop or taper a run of form. So it will be interesting to see how Rovers go about this.

I was driving home last week and found myself listening to radio Lancashire and in particular what was going on at Accrington Stanley. It would seem their promotion party started last May and has been going on ever since. They are enjoying their most successful term in a lifetime and they are making the most of it with pre match events and carrying on well after the match has finished. Ok it involves cut price alcohol and bad singing in the Marques but people are enjoying their Saturday and the club are very much in touch with the fans. I believe visiting supporters are invited too and a few Barnsley fans missed the coach home last week! Its very much a family affair too. It was very refreshing to here about what with the game going more and more money orientated and players wages becoming more obscene. In a week where all i here about where i live is depression around Old Trafford and many of their supporters having to play second fiddle to Man City. Something most United fans are not used too. Accy Stanley are glad to be in league one and enjoying every minute of it. Anyway good luck to Rovers tomorrow and i hope both sets of fans can enjoy a good afternoons entertainment.

with Mulgrew and Dack on the pitch, all is well.

Dallas Cowboys won their 3rd in a row; Texas Longhorns are in the Big 12 title game; Blackburn Rovers are getting points today. I can feel it.

Raya, Nyambe, Mulgrew, Lenihan, Williams, Reed , Smallwood, Bennett, Dack, Palmer, Armstrong are the starters today.

Graham on the bench with the usual suspects. Interesting lineup. Any time we start small, it's been mixed results. Hopefully this is a good time

My allegiance is irrelevant to this conversation. Especially when you give teams a made up title, because they aren't the Browns, who is truly America's team.

What is your take on Modell? ;)

I was so glad when the NFL did the right thing, & put a team back in Cleveland. I hate that the NFL allows owners to move willynilly all over the map.

Holy crap this is abysmal. Wouldn't be surprised if Mowbray makes a change before the break. This line up is not working.
