Actually got goosebumps watching that, if only because I can remember watching it when I was younger... we lost that match 2-0 if my memory serves me correctly... was gutted. Good thing it didn't matter in the end :tu:


So did I! It was such a journey those few years. sometimes wish I had savoured them even more.

Some fabulous names on there WB.

Newton, Billy Wilson, Rogers, Martin, Metcalfe.

Superb.
Thanks to Tyrone Shoelaces, this was the first team I ever saw:
Rovers v Middesborough F. A. Cup 5th round. Sat 5th of Feb, 1962. Att, 33,714.

Else! Taylor Newton, Clayton Woods McGrath, Douglas Lawther Pickering Byrom Ratcliffe.

We won 2-1 ( Pickering, Lawther ) setting up an away tie at Fulham in the next round. We drew that 2-2. Before the replay the draw had paired us with our old friends Burnley in the semi finals.
Typically Rovers, we played kean in the replay and lost 1-0 in front of another 33,000 crowd ! of our five forwards four were actually born in the town of Blackburn ! Now that will never happen again.

Still remember watching this on a Sunday afternoon and looking out for Cagliari 'cause they had a halved kit like Rovers. They were naff, though they did have Muzzi!

Newell missing that pen, those last few minutes still make me nervous now.

My dad went missing for the last 20 minutes, think he smoked a packet of fags on the concourse !

Rovers v Sheff Utd
Feb 28th 1970
Att. 15,795
Is this the fastest penalty ever?
I've timed it at 12 seconds!



Superb stuff, Whittle and Plastichead! :tu:
How good was Scott Sellars! Unplayable.
I remember wearing cycling shorts under my kit to copy him. :D
My favourite ever Rovers game is the '89 City game! Absolutely incredible atmosphere.
Infact, reminded me how raucous the Ewood atmospheres used to be.
When the 'Old Ewood' was rocking, there was NO place on earth like it! :wub:

Swindon away in the FA Cup 1984. Taken from a South West regional TV recording, it has a rather long build up to the Rovers game, but at around 3 minutes the footage of our match starts. We took a lot of fans down that day, I went on one of the special coaches. You can see the away section along the side under the main stand where the camera is, looks like maybe 1500 from Rovers? When the second goal goes in there are a load of Rovers fans walking behind the goal who had been chuckled out of the stand opposite for celebrating rather too much when we equalised, and they end up on the pitch after the winner. 

 

Brilliant day out, and at the end of the season we signed Jimmy Quinn from them.

What a great find and what a strange bit of footage, those at the back of the goal couldn't have timed things any better!

Oh mercerman, come out come out wherever you are! :tu:

Was at that Swindon cup game. After the match we started the long drive home and then got one of those 'fancy a beer?' moments. We headed for Cheltenham as, unknown to us, did another thousand Rovers fans! The place was rammed with northeners. They'd never seen owt like it. All these la de da types having to put up with us lot. At the time I worked in Accy and one of the lasses there was going out with a lad from Cheltenham. Apparently, on the Monday their local rag was full of the events of Saturday night. Great times following the lads.


Barton, Newton, Wilson, Sharples, Clayton, Joyce, Hole, Ferguson, Lord, Douglas & Connelly.
2-0 Versus Carlisle, 27 Dec 1966 Att 20,219
Hooked ever since!

Football is a game of two halves - Blue & White!
