Re: Leeds United v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 9 Nov 2019, KO 15:00

Been away, never saw the match, but agree strongly with the last two posts. Does Mowbray not rate any of our youngsters.? When the team obviously needs freshening. Instead of Buckley, Chapman or Butterworth we get more of Evans who is hardly the Frank Lampard of the Championship. I believe we've got...

Re: Leeds United v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 9 Nov 2019, KO 15:00

I have a feeling that Rovers are better than their league position suggests. Any result is possible in this match.

Re: 2019/2020 season

Wonderful. Rovers v Wigan Saturday December 21 moved to Monday night December 23. Then we play again on Boxing Day - home to Birmingham 3pm.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday, Sat 2 Nov 2019, KO 15:00(?)

Perhaps my aged memory is playing tricks, but didn't Chapman put in some cracking performances off the bench for us last season?

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday, Sat 2 Nov 2019, KO 15:00(?)

The Great escape, Blackburn style. Almost the reverse of the Preston match. Very impressed with Tosin today, even before he scored. Would love to keep this lad but I think we'll be seeing him in pale blue next season. I'd prefer him over Stones any day. I thought Downing was poor today, surely time ...

Chapman was excellent off the bench last season. If he's on song and with Arma buzzing we'd have two cracking attacking wingers.

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

Despite criticizing the man, I've always supported Mowbray, but if we're in the bottom three come January I'd want a change.

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

I like Nyambe but he is similar to Bell - great going forward and attacking down the wing, not so great defending. I think the decision to release Mulgrew on loan contributed greatly to Preston's win. Charlie has immense experience, is an organizer and a leader, something we are missing when Lenihan...

Absolutely gutted. Mowbray has to stop the rot - only 3 points above the relegation places.

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

Team
Walton
Nyambe Tosin Williams Bell
Evans Bennet
Armstrong Rothwell
Dack Gallagher

So the best player on the pitch against Birmingham (Buckley doesn't get a start, but Evans does as Travis is dropped.
Don't fancy this side at all.

This is the most negative I've felt before a match this season. Let's hope it's 'darkest just before the dawn'.

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

Holtby out, who will replace him?
1. Buckley
2. Evans.
3. Joe Rothwell
4. Amari Bell
5. None of these

I hope it's Buckley but fear it will be Evans.

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

My main gripe with Mowbray has always been his reluctance to give the youngsters a chance. As I've mentioned before.Travis would have been sent out on loan last season if it hadn't been for injuries. On Tuesday Buckley was apparently the brightest spark on the pitch (when he came on),and Tosin who i...
