Re: Quarantine On the Beach Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Reading, Sat, 18 July 2020

Having perused Twitter, it seems Rovers fans have just taken to blaming Walton for every goal we concede now. I can’t work out why from the highlights. Especially since I imagine most of them still laud Charlie Mulgrew for scoring exactly that kind of freekick. It was never the goalkeepers fault whe...

Re: Quarantine On the Beach Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Reading, Sat, 18 July 2020

Great to see the youth getting time, nice win after a few bad results. Glad to see Gally and Ben, and even rothwell tbh, get on the scoresheet. Arma class obviously. Walton is infuriating, I can't fathom why we took him over Raya (even ignoring the desperation of that loan). To add to Thor’s post, ...

Re: Quarantine Edition: Millwall v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 14 July 2020, KO 1945

In the last two games, I see no reason to play anybody not under contract, or at Rovers on loanout. This cuts out a lot of guys who won’t be here next year, and the focus is going forward. It’s not as if the other guys (mostly younger) can do much worse, and it’s not like we will gripe if they are ...

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

Unless there is an absurd 180 for next season from Gallagher, I think it's time to give up on him. He did perform in his loan period but mostly under Coyle if I remember right. I’d like to think Brereton would have buried that chance but it’s pretty much wishful thinking at this point. There’s basi...

He was here for 2 seasons and made questionable transfer decisions. The premier best being Macro Ritgers.
That was a Hughes signing but he was so bad it makes sense to blame Allardyce. Herold Goulon and Elrio Van Heerden on the other hand....

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 playof...

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

You keep calling them catfish teams but Rovers haven’t won at Wigan for the past 13 years. We’ve pretty much played them every season for most of that period too

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 Super...

It’s really difficult keep track of what you’re thoughts are. You said in the Barnsley thread that you don’t want to be a “Mowbray Out goon” and he should get another year but now your agreeing with a Mowbray Out post

Re: Current Events/News

Oh look, what a surprise. It's a spark. It's the needle that broke the camels back. It's not really about one man, but hundreds and thousands that are subjected to daily oppression. I wouldn't be surprised if I ran the numbers and found at you're far more likely to die at the hands of a police offi...

Re: Current Events/News

Surely I can't be the only one that thinks the current 'George Floyd' protests' are way over the top? What has society come to where a violent career criminal is being eulogised and made out to be some kind of saint? Whereby the police officers actions were a disgrace and he (they) are rightly bein...

How many players went on to bigger and better things after leaving Rovers?

Leaving the mighty Ewood seems to be somewhat of a curse.
