Re: 2019/2020 season

Common sense prevails. This virus kills the need to minimise risk is paramount. Influenza kills. Cars kill. Oxygen kills if you have too much of it. The reality is that this particular virus seems only to be fatal if you have a preexisting respiratory condition, or are elderly. In addition, it's cu...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Swansea City, Sat 29 Feb 2020, KO 1500

Ask yourself a question. How many current Rovers players would be moved on if Rovers gained promotion to the Premier league. Certainly those who are past their best and several who are first teamers may not be considered good enough. Now consider would these players see it in their own interest to t...

Re: Charlton Athletic v. Blackburn

Well 50 points on the board now and that is the first target to aim for when you kick off in August. Several players who where no where near the first team last August featured today which is a good testament to the strength of the squad. Today was the reverse fixture of the opening day of the seaso...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Hull City, Tue, 11 Feb 2020, KO 1745

Like everyone i am happy Samuel got his first goal for Rovers after his injury nightmare of last season. He celebrated of course by covering his ears mocking the boo boys in the Blackburn end. Shame he had to do that. He should have been really pleased to get that goal and celebrated accordingly. If...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Hull City, Tue, 11 Feb 2020, KO 1745

The form table since Christmas does not lie. Hull are in the bottom six as are Leeds. As Fulham was a difficult game this game should be easier. With both teams losing offence minded players to injury and transfers this has 0-0 written all over it. Danny Graham simply cannot start the game on the be...

Re: Blackburn v. Fulham, February 8.

Been reading that Tony Mowbray was questioning that Rovers disallowed goal should have stood. I have seen the footage from a fan video from the stand and after watching it a few times the ball is touched by a think Samuel before running on to Lenihan i think who slots home. The referee was right.

Re: Blackburn v. Fulham, February 8.

Rovers rather toothless against a good Fulham team. Didnt expect much else given our three main goal creators are missing from the team. Only Armstrong can be relied on to be a threat on goal. Danny Graham may have to play a bigger role in the second half of the season. Apart from these two players ...

Re: Where are they now?

Its is devastating to see your parents personality disappear. All respect to Tony Parkes and his family. My experience of a similar disease with my Dad means conversations we once took for granted are now a thing of the past. Like Natalie says in the video the Dad she knew has gone.

Re: M’bro V. Blackburn, Feb. 1.

Chapman didn't even make the squad today and you wonder why when Gallagher turns up each week with his boots and gets a game. We will wait and see on the Holtby injury but it was always going to happen with Dack and Rothwell out. We still have Samuel and Brereton who need to start proving they deser...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Well come the end of the season we can decide whether the January transfer window was a missed opportunity or not. Minus Dack and Rothwell leaves us short of creativity. We will just have to hope JRC can take his chance like Lenihan, Nyambe and Travis did. We were short of quality at the back last s...
