Re: Bristol City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 14 Dec 2019, KO 15:00

Since the embarrassment at Preston its been played 8 won 6 drawn 1 lost 1. That is an excellent response. Well done Jordan Rhodes today scoring three at Forest with a another from Fletcher in a 4-0 win, Ironic that both players are out of contract at the end of the season. Wouldn't swap any of them ...

Re: Swansea v Blackburn Rovers

A bit dumb on Tony Mowbray's part leaving Dack on having been booked so early in the game. Now we are minus our best player for a game. Sould have brought on Holtby for Dack at half time.

Re: Swansea v Blackburn Rovers

Swansea were a better team and Rovers a worse team in this fixture last season. Their manager could be under pressure if he loses this game given a poor run of results.

Re: Burnley

Son Heung-Min’s amazing solo goal during Spuds 5-0 drubbing of Burnley. :shock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-CefuZ6h1k That is the goal of the season and if Maradona would have scored it it would be in an all time top ten. My goal of weekend thpugh was Bristol City's second against Fulham. You...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Derby County, Sat 7 Dec 2019, KO 15:00

Rovers now have parity over goals scored and conceded which can be a good marker of how the season is going. Giving as good as you get is a good starting point for kicking on into the second half of the season. Cut out the silly results like Charlton and Luton and we'd have been in the playoffs.

Another dreary draw. Got down to the last 4 balls and we missed Burnley!
Yup we missed Burnley by a couple of balls in the bag!......Arsenal v Leeds looks like the tie of the round.

Re: Stoke City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat, 30 Nov 2019, KO 15:00

Next three games for Rovers are Derby at home then Swansea and Bristol City away. It wasn't looking too good three games previous but Rovers have ground out three wins. I have been impressed with Rovers one touch passing going forward. A delight to watch when it comes off. Listening to Barnsley and ...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Brentford, Wed, 27 Nov 2019, KO 19:45

A candidate for Rovers goal of the season tonight. Not bad too for a team that struggles to defend. Another injury returnee in the shape of Brereton. Its been difficult to find things going right for Rovers of late but maybe just maybe Rovers fortunes have changed. Oddly enough the injury to Sam Gal...

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Barnsley, Sat, 23 Nov 2019, KO 15:00

The growls from the crowd can have a long term negative response from the players. You only have to look at the face of Bradley Dack after the winning goal last Saturday. Rather than celebrate with the crowd it was more like Oh ye of little faith!...similar to Russell Crowe in gladiator...Are you no...

Not too difficult to know one of Brentford's weaknesses. Play high balls into the box and put the keeper under pressure.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Barnsley, Sat, 23 Nov 2019, KO 15:00

Barnsley changed their manager this week because they were bottom of the league. So have Stoke and so have Huddersfield lately. If Rovers were in a similar position i would not be defending Tony Mowbray. The fact that Rovers are not currently at risk of relegation means quite simply to me is carry o...
