Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I'm not convinced FFP has anything to do with financial stability. Man City are having issues with FFP and yet have net assets of over £500 million and showed a very healthy wage:turnover ratio of 59% in those account. One way or another, especially outside the PL, it will put an upward pressure on ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Someone (presumably Bowyer) from the club should come out and briefly explain the rationale behind the sale. If it's a case that the money on offer was too good to refuse or the player asked to leave then just say it. Silence breeds speculation and doom-mongering. I wonder if the transfer could assi...

Re: Blackburn v Norwich 24th Feb 2015, 19:45

Such a poor game. Despite a general lack of urgency under the circumstances, we created several chances against Blackpool. Tonight we created very little against a better side playing far more attractive football. The first half we camped in our own half and played long balls, attempting to play on ...

Re: FA CUP 2014/15

Grim draw really. We were odds on to get a team who on paper we'd be able to give a really good go.

Still, crazier things have happened in the cup this season. I imagine we'll be taking 5000+ fans.

Re: Bolton v Blackburn 26Dec 2014, 15:00

Dominated that game and for 85 minutes limited Bolton to half chances.

The worrying thing is how we've lost a game where the opposition has created so little due poor organisation at the back. You can blame Bowyer all you want for that, but you can't legislate for the poor finishing.

Re: Financial Unfair Play

Rovers posted a £42.1 million loss before tax to June 14.

A lot of writeoffs though, which on the bright side should have a benefit from an FFP point of view going forward.

Re: Financial Unfair Play

Got this to look forward to for what looks to be 18 months now. Should have snapped Hull's hand off for Rhodes in hindsight and we'd probably be out of it in the summer. Overall impact - the quality of the league drops and the gap between relegated clubs with parachute money to spend and everyone el...

Re: Rovers v Leeds United, Saturday 22nd November 2014, 3pm

It certainly appeared to be a dive from behind the goal. :lol:

Is diving to win a penalty a worse form of cheating than rolling round on the floor when you've been fouled by an opponent already on a booking?

Re: Millwall V Blackburn 4th Nov 2014 - 19:45

The most annoying part of the whole thing is that when it went to 2-2 Rovers absolutely battered them for the 7 mins of stoppage time after earlier sitting back.

Re: Expectations

The key issue Rovers have at present is that despite a lot of potential in the squad, the team do not seem to click for large spells in games (frequently in the 1st half). 7 points from the last 3 games appears fortunate based on those performances, which have been mediocre (except 2nd half vs Fores...

Re: Forest v Blackburn 25 Oct 2014 -15:00

Good week really (7 points from 9) despite the point at Ipswich being daylight robbery and Birmingham being very poor (and lost 8-0 at home today).

Cause for optimism but still nowhere near the level we were at towards the end of last season.
