Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

What did Rovers finish under him - 10th or 12th?

Re: Quarantine Edition: Wigan Athletic v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 27 June 2020, KO 15:00

So you mean you had a knee jerk reaction again? And I think you're agreeing with me on the difference between a competitive league and not? It’s very easy to get frustrated by sports, particularly, any team in any sport I follow. :lol: The Championship is competitive; however, at some point I would...

Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

Oxford U tied Pompey today, so to Oxford for replay. Good for Eastwood, I thought he was a decent backup for us, glad he’s getting a chance at promotion. I had just started following Blackburn Rovers while he was ‘keeper in Paul Robinson’s absence.

Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

I find him to be a vile human being who has put self aggrandisement above everything else, has a reputation within the game for dodgy financial deals, and then obviously got caught doing a dodgy financial deal with England which was all about his own self aggrandisement. Even if I could put aside t...

Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

Big Sam... gets teams to safety, not much else?
Looking at his overall career, fairly undistinguished, mid table finishes, about everywhere he’s been. Ethiaa, What else would you say about him?

Re: Quarantine Edition: Wigan Athletic v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 27 June 2020, KO 15:00

Waco, I think some of this is a cultural thing. You're a big college American football fan, where as far as I can tell, the system is a bit rigged so the best teams spend most of the season playing chumps so they get these records where they win almost all games. I think your 6 and oh style comment...

Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

RtP, great comments, & I heartily agree with you. I don’t hold Rovers’ relegation against Mowbray. He restored a lot to the club when he stepped in. Rovers were a sad sack outfit. Mowbray immediately lifted them out of the doldrums and gave them something to play for. I was not around when Rovers we...

Re: Quarantine Edition: Wigan Athletic v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 27 June 2020, KO 15:00

You guys are right, you have followed Rovers a heckuva lot longer than me. Praise/Blame cannot all be placed on the manager. But, we will have to ask a lot of questions in the off-season. I hate the thought of making a change at manager after the season starts. Especially not with 6 games to play, a...

Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

Marcelo Bielsa as manager at Leeds... He’s been at Elland a year & 4 months less than Tony has been at Ewood. Before his hiring, Leeds had 9 managers in 5 years. Their fortunes improved almost immediately. Under Bielsa, Leeds was in excellent position to promote automatically last year, made playoff...

Re: Quarantine edition: Blackburn Rovers vs. Leeds U.

Anything can happen, and I will not be surprised by any result.
Tony needs a win, or at least a draw, to counter criticism of our last two games. The players need to play with more discipline and finish better.
2-1.

Re: Quarantine Edition: Wigan Athletic v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 27 June 2020, KO 15:00

Let’s see how the final six go. I’m interested to see if changing formation and tinkering with lineup pays dividends. The thing that bothers me most, is Rovers were on the cusp of playoff places, and we lose convincingly to two catfish teams, with barely a whimper. Some of that is on players, some i...

Jayne Mansfield’s daughter you know.
Oh, yeah! Jayne attended The University of Texas!

Rovers game will be my favorite event on the 4th; 2nd place is Nathan’s hot dog eating contest. In a warehouse this year, only 5 contestants. Downer.

Re: Quarantine Edition: Wigan Athletic v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 27 June 2020, KO 15:00

No, I said the “full year”, meaning season. He doesn’t deserve the ax before he finishes the final six games. We owe him that much. Heck, we could still make the playoffs... maybe get promoted. How silly would that be to fire him before the season is finished? Besides, we’re not going to find Superm...

32-23-46.

No, these are not Mariska Hargitay’s measurements. This is Rovers’ all-time record vs. Leeds. A Rovers win, plz.

Might be a nice acquisition in time, 18 years old. Envisions himself as a 10!
