Re: Season 2013/14

Don't remember seeing anything like this in public before. Maybe a message to those players as much as to other clubs. I wonder if it will ultimately come down to a choice between money or personal pride for a few of them.

Re: Financial Unfair Play

http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/11229930.Blackburn_Rovers_wait_on_FFP_rules_after_changes_rejected/?ref=mac I'm quietly confident about this not affecting Rovers too much. Quite apart from the legal issues about equality and competition which may yet be challenged, a...

Oh no, the internet has finally arrived in Burnley.

Re: Sheffield Wednesday v Rovers, Sat 12th April 2014, 3:07p

What a poor way to throw away a game. Overall Sheff Wed probably had more clear cut chances and in some ways should have done much better for Rovers goals in the first half, but at 3-1 against an average opposition we should be seeing the game out. Their main attacking threat was on the break, espec...

Re: Rovers Vs QPR 8th April, KO: 7.45

It's 5 points effectively when you consider goal difference and even if Reading start dropping points there are so many teams waiting to snatch 6th and one will surely put a really good run together?

I reckon we'll need to win all 5 games to finish 6th, and even then it might not quite be enough.

Re: RoversTalk player of the season 2013/14

I'd say Cairney for strong performances consistently over the season. Rhodes goal record is still very strong but there are too many games he simply goes missing. Marshall and Conway would probably be contenders too if they'd been playing all season. EDIT: I have literally just copied the above post...

Re: Millwall v Rovers, Sat 29th Mar, 3.00pm

I've just seen the replay of the Hanley incident and it is worse than I imagined from reading comments. A truly horrific decision.

Re: Watford v Rovers, Tue 25th Mar, 7.45pm

Three HUGE games coming up if we are to push for the play-offs! I highly doubt we'll make it but Millwall away and Ipswich at home we SHOULD win! That's followed by home games against Brighton and QPR, win one of those and i'd be very happy. 9 from the next 12 points would give us a shot at making ...

Re: Huddersfield vs Rovers, Sat 15th Mar 2014, 3pm

I think we need to forget about the playoffs to avoid the inevitable disappointment when we don't get there. It's going to take an unbelievable run (probably averaging more than 2 points a game territory) until the end of the season. In that period there's a lot of very tricky home games (and all aw...

Re: Huddersfield vs Rovers, Sat 15th Mar 2014, 3pm

Overall it probably wasn't as exciting a game as the scoreline suggests. Rovers started brightly and got the early goal, but they came back into it and were well on top towards the end of the 1st half, and were finding it far too easy to pin us back in our own box. They also started the 2nd half bri...

Re: Blackburn v Burnley, Sun 9th Mar 2014, 12:30

Some fantastic results today actually. Our current form isn't that bad given we have been much stronger at home than away this season generally, and 4 of our last 5 games have been away. I can see Wigan pushing on now and remaining in the top 6 until the end. Forest have started stuttering though as...

Re: Jordan Rhodes

I've thought about this, and extending his contract (even with a modest pay rise) may actually help with FFP, oddly enough, because of how transfer fees are accounted for. :lol:
