Re: Financial Fair Play

At least Rovers are now sixteenth. :)

Re: Sheffield Wed v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 16 March 2019, KO 15:00

Interesting comment on radio Lancashire after the game. Listening to Kevin Gallagher he talked about Tony Mowbrays recent comments suggesting that none of his central defenders liked heading the ball. The exemption to that was Darragh Lenihan. If true it is ridiculous but if you look at the facts lo...

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

You dont win anything with kids...has famously said by former Liverpool defender Alan Hansen on the then emerging Man Utd team of the 90's. Those of us of a certain age can remember further back than that and two young Rovers defenders brought into the team due to an injury hit squad. I refer to Kei...

Re: Sack race

West Brom have sacked manager Darren Moore. Strange timing on this one. They are in the play offs positions with ten games left. Just what they expect another manager to achieve in that time with no transfer window available.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Preston North End, Sat 9 March 2019, KO 12:00

last thing you need when you are struggling is to play the divisions form team. Preston have this year scored four at QPR, three at Millwall, two at Stoke and an impressive 3-1 win at home to Norwich. Our only hope is their good run of results came to an end last week by failing to beat Bristol City...

Re: Rotherham v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 2 Mar 2019, KO 15:00

If rovers are ultimately going to progress they might have to go down the continental route. Good home grown talent at player and manager level is few and far between. Not since the times of Alex Ferguson has there been a British manager winning the premier league. Rovers of course have a long way t...

Re: Rotherham v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 2 Mar 2019, KO 15:00

On a completely different issue but linked really to how not to seek success by over stretching a clubs finances. An interesting read about Derby County in today's media and losing £3 million a month. The bright lights of the premiership have proved too much of a temptation and the rumour is that if...

Re: Rotherham v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 2 Mar 2019, KO 15:00

Rovers need Lenihan back asap. The pairing of Mulgrew and Rodwell isnt working. Mowbray has been after Patrick Bauer from Charlton for quite a while now and is prepared to wait until the summer to get him. Trouble is he might have been better paying the 2 million Charlton wanted him last summer. Ins...
