Re: Lewis Holtby

Tony Mowbray wanted Harrison Read back on loan before Fulham offered more money so it is not a surprise that he has brought in another midfielder. It was his birthday yesterday but even at the age of 29 he still can be described as being at his best. Got a good feeling about Lewis Holtby being a Rov...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Millwall, Sat 14 Sept 2019, KO 15:00

Roll back twelve months and this was one of the games Rovers failed to win. The squad feels stronger this time around and it showed today. Job done today and Rovers currently 11th in the league. The next five games do not look over challenging for a Rovers team who if they can get the goal getters f...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Millwall, Sat 14 Sept 2019, KO 15:00

Anfield is a dump of a place. The stadium is ok but the surrounding area is rough as a bears arse. You'd be better going to the Liverpool docks and taking in the maritime exhibitions and the Liver building and maybe going on the Beatles tour and seeing the Cavern club. There is a lot of world famous...

Re: Fergie R.I.P

A little bit before my time but not by much though but highly spoken of on the Rovers website. RIP Mike Ferguson. A few from my generation gone lately namely Kevin Stonehouse and Jon lowey have sadly passed before their time. By all accounts of what my dad tells me it sounds the Rovers players of th...

Re: West Bromwich Albion v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 31 Aug 2019, KO 15:00

A splendidly marvelous strike from Harrison Reed earned Rovers a point last season in this fixture. Another point would do nicely. On a side issue some challenging remarks from Tony Mowbray directed at Harry Chapman in todays media. The message was its time to knuckle down and really give it all he ...

Maybe we should have kept Mulgrew just to take penalties.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Cardiff City, Sat 24 Aug 2019, KO 15:00

Five games into the new season and the expectation was to beat Charlton and maybe get a draw at Fulham. To level things up the games against Hull and Middlesboro gave us six points where four points would have been great. The point yesterday against Cardiff was a point gained against a good team. So...

Re: Friendly: Bury/Blackburn

Bury could be expelled from the EFL today. This looks extremely likely given the situation. The FA are being blamed for not acting in the best interests of Bury whose current owner bought the club for £1 last year.

Re: Hull City v Blackburn Rovers, Tue 20 Aug 2019, KO 19:45

Both teams could have won this game with both sets of offensive players having chances. Ironically it fell to a defender and a goalkeeper to decide where the points went. Pleased for Williams who last season had been subject to some abuse via social media. Shame on people who hide behind a keyboard ...

Re: Hull City v Blackburn Rovers, Tue 20 Aug 2019, KO 19:45

If there is a singular way forward for Rovers this season it will be to concede less goals. I will always remember the Rovers season of 1980/81 when Rovers finished 4th i think which turned out to be one of Rovers better seasons in the old Division two before the Jack Walker years. That season Rover...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesbrough, Sat 17 Aug 2019, KO 15:00

I refer to Woodgate might be sacked if Middlesboro's results do not improve soon. So if Middlesboro are looking for a new manager where might they look for one. Tony Mowbray maybe?...I don't want Mowbray sacked at all but think Boro may look to him as a possible replacement. Would Tony Mowbray stay ...

Huddersfield sack Jan Siewert after defeat to Fulham. Maybe its fake news like the phoney Paddy power shirt!

Re: Carabao Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Oldham, Tue 13 Aug 2019, KO 19:45

I am not sure whether that was Oldham's first team but they put up a good show. Class showed in the end though. It was the old guard of Graham and Dack that turned things around. Perhaps Graham should start against Middlesbrough.
