Now That's Entertainment


Recommended Posts

Those that couldnt be bothered to get out of their armchairs of Saturday afternoon missed one of the most entertaining games at Ewood Park for a very, very long time. More than that they also missed the vibrant atmosphere of Ewood as fans got behind a team that is bringing pride back to this Lancashire town club.

Credit must go to Mark Hughes who having now taken over the post of manager full time, is starting to sort out the team, showing no fear in dropping players and giving reserve string players, their opportunity.

After the two recent 4-0 defeats, Hughes made dramatic changes to Saturday's line up, bringing in Johansson and McEverley to the defence and Bothroyd came in from the cold to lead the attack. Maybe a gamble on Hughes part but it paid dividends with all three players giving sound performances and repaying the manager for his faith in them.

Whilst it's early days, Saturdays performance showed that there are players, at the club, who given the right encouragement and guidance are capable of playing entertaining football. Something that has been missing at Ewood for the last 18 months.
