A gibbon once improved my life. I had no one to watch football with, specifically a Blackburn game against Arsenal but then a Gibbon turned up with a Jim and a Theadore and then I had a whole troop of people to watch football with.

It was a magical day, with a rare Rovers win to celebrate against the mighty Arse.

Nordic bakeware was sampled, kestrels soared majestically over the heart of Sheffield, Igor Tudor passed by in his riverboat on the Don and arable farmers hawked their latest yield.

It was truly something.

First half has been a wild ride. Could have sworn that Rovers would be scored on, then it just clicked and they figured it out. 3 great chances so far, 2 from Graham and 1 from Dack. I think if Rovers continue this play, they are bound for a goal.

At least the unbeaten streak is still alive. & yes, glad Grabban only got a brace. He always scares me to death.

They had chances, we had chances. A fought for point.

That ref was absolutely inconsistent. At one end, Forest get a soft penalty from Rodwell, at the other end, Dack gets pushed to the ground and no penalty. There was no consistency between the calls.

Rovers really should have gotten the 3 points. They played much better, had better chances, and just seemed more composed at times to make things happen.

This is why you need iFollow. Watching the match is entirely different from seeing the ticker tape. Plus, they just added rebroadcasts so you can watch the whole match at your leisure.

Missing Mulgrew & Williams kinda gave a lineup a patchwork feel.

Rovers in 13th, but only 5 points from leading the league. We’re in this thing.
