Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

The bids for him have almost been silly. I know they say 18 million, but I think they are holding out for higher. In other news, Adam Maher has been linked to a free move to Rovers. He is Dutch...so on the Rigters scale how good is he... On a scale of Rigters to Ooijer, he is somewhere around Marvi...

Re: The Bolton chaos

They could put 11 fans out, no bother. They’re relegated, but what fan wouldn’t play for the club they support for free?

Losing at home to a 10 man Wigan side fighting relegation isn’t how to get promoted no matter how many fans you have.

Leeds have left it late on too many occasions this season to rescue points.
Exactly. They only beat us in that manner because of our own incompetence.

Re: Nottingham Forest v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 13 April 2019, KO 15:00

If this stays how it is and we win, I hope it puts into perspective the run of losses and how fine the margins are in this league. Rovers have been dreadful today; Bell and Raya have contrived to give Forest every possible opportunity to score. We’ve played better and lost many a time but at no poin...

Re: Nottingham Forest v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 13 April 2019, KO 15:00

Half-time, Rovers up 1-0. Solid showing so far, Bell is being attacked down the left big time, but he is able to take care of some it. Joe Rothwell, wow. If Rovers didn't put up the goals of the season already, that one was an instant contender. Those darting forward runs from midfield is the thing...

Re: Birthday Bash Boogaloo: Blackburn Rovers v Wigan Athletic, Tue 12 March 2019, KO 19:45

Not a great performance from Rovers, fortunately Wigan were dire. Mcgloire's debut wasn't perfect but was good enough. I'll have him over Williams any day. He just needs to dominate the opposition a tad more, I'm sure that will come, especially if he plays alongside Mulgrew or Lenihan. I lost count...

Re: Birthday Bash Boogaloo: Blackburn Rovers v Wigan Athletic, Tue 12 March 2019, KO 19:45

Am I wrong in thinking Nyambe has actually played centre back quite a lot though as an Academy player? I mean the only attribute he really has for being on the right is speed, because he can’t really cross and he’s not a natural dribbler.

Re: General Election

Yep, Germany and Japan were the ultimate winners. The amount of resource put into both countries after WW2 in order to prevent repeating the bitterness from the reparations of WW1 & subsequently WW3, was astounding. Completely set up both countries to be major players on the world stage. Oh, is tha...

He was a brilliant man and the right one to lead us at that time. But I don’t think villain is too strong a word, even if I think it McDonnell is an idiot to use it. Churchill’s ruthlessness undoubtedly helped us win the war , but it also accomplished many other things , none of which should be swe...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Middlesborough, Sun 17 Feb 2019, KO 13:00

I'd have persevered with Scott Wharton at ch. One criticism I have of Mowbray is that he's reluctant to give our youngsters a chance. If Smallwood hadn't been injured, Travis would have been out on loan by now, Other teams seem happy to blood youngsters from time to time - surely we must have some ...
