Re: The Club Formerly Known As Frank Lampard's Now Wayne Rooney's Derby County v Blackburn Rovers, Sun 8 March 2020, KO

If Elliott Bennett is at this football club at the start of next season I’ll seriously think about not renewing my season ticket. I’m sick to death of this average league 1 player playing at right back!! How many penalties has he conceded in his time here? A wingers eyes must light up when they see ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I'm happy with the outcome of this window. Lots of panic buying from other clubs in what has proven to be a difficult window, even some of the top clubs in the country. Would be any easy choice to do the same and sign players for the sake of it. The timing of Rothwell was far from ideal but JRC and...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Preston North End, Sat 11 Jan 2020, KO 1500

I thought we played relatively well today. Restricted Preston to 1 shot from memory (which they scored from!) Nyambe, Downing and Armstrong the stand out performances in my opinion. Hope the injury to Nyambe isn’t too bad. If only Nyambe had a twin brother who could play left back...! Has to be top ...

Spunked 15 million on that strike force. Just not good enough.

Re: Huddersfield Town v Blackburn Rovers, Sun 29 Dec 2019, KO 1500

Apart from the opening 10 mins that was pretty pathetic. I’ve seen enough of Buckley now to come to the conclusion he is not good enough. It is not fair on young players with little first team experience to ask them to do an experienced players job. With no Dack and Holtby and Armstrong sitting out...

Re: Huddersfield Town v Blackburn Rovers, Sun 29 Dec 2019, KO 1500

Really hope Tosin is back for this. Nyambe went off injured against Birmingham so we could see Bennett return to right back. I expect Downing to also come in at left back or maybe Williams will slot in there if Tosin returns. I’m expecting a number of changes again to freshen things up. We’ve sold o...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Birmingham City, Thu 26 Dec 2019, KO 1500

Really poor game this afternoon. This happens a lot over Christmas with the fixture pileup and squad rotation. No fluency in our play at all. In terms of John Buckley. This lad needs to eat some proper food and hit the gym. Far too lightweight to have any impact. With his statue, he needs to be top ...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Wigan Athletic, Mon 23 Dec 2019, KO 1745

Disappointing night in front of a decent crowd. I thought Wigan played well last night and look far from a team that are bottom of the league. The absence of Tosin was big. He is generally the catalyst of our moves with his excellent passing from the back. Not sure how long he is out for? Clearly th...

Re: Bristol City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 14 Dec 2019, KO 15:00

I predict at least 4 changes; Dack (forced) Evans, Downing and Graham. If we get a point today I would be delighted. Then 2 winnable home games would make it a great Christmas. Please Santa.....

Re: Bristol City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 14 Dec 2019, KO 15:00

Man United have no qualms about playing academy youngsters, but Mowbray is always reluctant. Even with changes to be made I don't see Butterworth, or Rankin Costello getting a sniff. Buckley might get a few minutes at the end but I'd be amazed if he was a starter. United had an 18yo forward score t...

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 26 Oct 2019, KO 15:00

I’m struggling to understand how Nyambe can be faulted for any of those goals.... :shrug:

First goal is a complete fuck up by the keeper.

Second is a combination of Williams and Bennett.

There is a slight argument for the 3rd but you’ve just got to hold your hand up and say it’s a great strike.

Re: Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 22 Oct 2019, KO 19:45

That last night was nothing short of embarrassing and I’m slowly coming to the conclusion that TM has taken us as far as he can. There is no shame in admitting this and I’m grateful to him for the position we are in now compared to where we were. We are by far a more attractive proposition for someo...
