Blackburn Rovers v Huddersfield Town, Sat 19 Oct 2019, KO 12:30

Discuss all things Rovers related except...

Why do we call parks parks if we can't even park in the park?

So we can imagine parking in the park with our 1973 AMC Gremlin

I feel a big loss coming on, and it doesn't feel good.

Sometimes I do wonder what new members and casual browsers make of these polls

According to Wikipedia, it's British slang and a British pasttime, although may have started to spread to other countries including the US, and Sweden. ;) See also: Swinging, Hogging( :| ) :D

Now then, back to work...

Yeah.

Huddersfield have found some form with the Cowley's and they're the exact type of team and management that we're not very good at playing. They'll be defensive, solid and frustrate us. Then no doubt shit hot on set pieces.

Urgh.

I wonder why more haven't joined because of the polls. Are we being inclusive enough or are we being too exclusive?

We're being exclusively inclusive and inclusively exclusive. It's a Bing thing.

You should see it in the 11 year old version of Netscape Navigator I have to use for a couple of internal things at work :D
(poll looks fine to be fair, it just doesn't like the search bar or navigation)

We are due a good performance, particularly against a team lower in the league than we are. I think 3-1 Rovers, but make no mistake, another loss and the R word will raise its ugly head.

There's no way you're calling Netscape a "casual" browser.

Cunningham and Lenihan we know about but the latest is both Grayson and Hart have picked up injuries in training... :doh: Rovers are down to the bear bones with a back four of Bennett- Williams- Adarabioyo-Bell. Nyambe is ready to come into the team and with Bennett a booking away from suspension he might get his chance sooner than later.
