Event: Episode III; Revenge of the Rovers

Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn

WAR! Ewood Park is under vicious attack by the ruthless Scum Lord, Ailing Ferguson. There are heroes on both sides, yet justice is nowhere.

In a stunning move, the Scum Lord engaged the services of one crooked man, Devious Poll, and together inflicted a crunching low blow seven days earlier.

The inequalities are obvious; three pieces of the evil scum’s attacking machinery, namely Lucky Saha, Horseface and Shrek, together with their pet Portuguese show-pony, cost more than Ewood Park’s team of gallant fighters put together.

In the heat of Episode II’s battle, a braided-haired ballet dancer made a sneaky attack on Ewood’s blonde midfield protector. Earlier, a snarling Yorkshire mad-dog too had, with the permission of Devious, attacked this oft-misunderstood warrior.

Other agents of this evil empire include an anonymous reggae-haired character, a barging Scot who got away with murder in Episode II, a shaven-headed Frenchman with a penchant for mistakes as well as a Brown cow. Together, they are herded by a psychopath protégé of the Scum Lord, who excels at inciting crowds and rants non-stop.

Now, a dark cloud engulfs Ewood Park as this evil empire descent upon the sacred turf. A site of previous battles, the Kingdom of Ewood is now ruled by a former protégé of the Scum Lord, Master Sparky whose passion and bravery is unquestioned by the people of his Kingdom. This was perhaps best epitomised by the Master putting the Psychopath in his place at his former hunting ground, telling him: “Too often you speak, F*** off you will”.

And now, with Jedi Knight Craig Bellamy still missing, a team of fighters fiercely loyal to the Master, comprising of a Kiwi braveheart, Norwegian Viking, Irish and Australian warriors, a Finnish renegade, the young English Padawan Bentley and the Welsh protector, must embark on a desperate mission to restore justice...

That was just lovely. Seriously though, how nice it would be to send this pack of prima-donnas home with their tails between their legs. If we apply ourselves as well as Wednesday night, cut out some fatal sloppiness (Tugay?) and have a fair ref it's certainly possible.

The thought of the 'dynamic duo' of Kuqi and Bentley reunited makes me shiver. I just wonder if Hughesy might shake things up a little by playing Emerton from the start and having Pedersen in a forward role. It certainly livened things up on Wednesday night, we looked infinitely more threatening than with the formula of hoofing balls up to Kuqi, who either failed to win headers or mis-controlled the ball.

Coming over from Dublin for this one, fingers crossed for some sweet revenge.

My prediction for this one is that Rovers will play a different game to the one we saw On Wednesday. It will be a lot tighter with the option of a point probably too big a carrot than the prospect of a loss.

Expect Tugay to drop to the bench and don't be surprised by a recall for the axe.

Terrific preview.

No point playing Tugay since he has no-one to pass to at the moment, so I would move Reid into the middle.

Time to make the most of Kuqi rather than have Tugay ping 60 yarders for him to lumber after. So here is the radical solution: since we have no-one who can get to the bye-line and swing in a cross for the Kuqi monster to attack, I would put Emerton on the left and MGP on the right so they can both cut inside and angle a ball to Kuqi's head with his back to the goal, with instructions to Bentley, Reid, Savage and the other winger to get in there for knockdowns and flick-ons. Panic a dodgy MU central defence.

2-0 MGP, Emerton

I think he will play the Axe and drop Tugay for this one as we wont be looking for through balls.

Friedel

Neill Todd Nelson Gray

Reid Axe Savage

Emerton..............MGP

............Kuqi

lots of high balls, Emerton, Kuqi and MGP are all good in the air. at least one gambling of 1 of the others winning the header.

1-1 for me

Hopefully we should have a new striker by Wednesday or, failing that, Bellamy should be fit.

If neither happens I reckon we should play like Ajax/1970s Brazil with NO strikers:

Pedersen Bentley

Peter Tugay Savage Reid

Gray Nelsen Zurab Niell

Freidel

The wide player and the front two could rotate and move about the pitch bemusing the Utd defence. Think of it, we would be AWESOME!

Of course this is a ridiculous idea but I have a suspicion that it might be better than having Kuqi on from the start. Better to have himcoming off the bench in the second half.

We desperatley need a striker. Kuqi and Bentley just don't work simple as. I can't see scring many at all with them two upfront. Let's hope Bellamy's back in time (which is probably highly doubtul)

EDIT:- Brilliant preview btw biggrin.gif

It's depressing that I like the look/sound of that.

Im not saying we should but Emerton played striker for the Aussies at one point. My team:

Freidel

Neill

Gray

Zurab

Nelson

Emerton

Peter

Sav

Reidy

Tugay(Replaced by Bentley near the end)

Pedersen

Kuqi has been awful lately. Cant play him ( well we hardly have a choice but hey) He has been embarassing.

Nice preview!

Since we're mucking about with formations, I would go with the following:

Friedel

Neill

Khizanishvili

Nelsen

Grey

Emerton

Mokoena/Tugay

Savage

Pedersen

Bentley

Reid

I fancy trying Reid as a striker. Since he has a powerful shot, yet is usually too far away to make it count, we could try giving him the opportunity to get closer. if he isn't pushed out of the game, it could work real wonders.

Yes and that would make me so pleased, as I'd be proven correct that our strikerless team had been beaten by one of the best teams in europe.
