[Archived] Rovers 3 Middlesbrough 2


Recommended Posts

I know alot of you seem to be worried by this fixture, but fear not it will be a comfortable 3-1 victory. Boro will be weary from their magnificent win in Rome on Wed and with a Fa cup 1/4 final to come on tues a trip to East Lancs will be the last thing on their mind. With b'ham beating Spurs i reckon we will go level on points with them and its game on for the champs league! tinykit.gif

Rovers 3-1 Boro

Given the trouble kuqi caused Southgate and Riggott earlier this season, I wonder if Hughes will be tempted into starting with the Finn.

I guess it's unlikely with the Flo-Bellers partnership looking promising.

2-1 Rovers.

Unpredictable Boro lose, here's hoping.

He may start with Pogno and Bells. However if the first half doesnt yield a goal, i think he should bring Kuqi on asap.

This Boro web site makes a convincing case for a Boro win this afternoon.

Another Boro site- Fly me to the Moon has this to say:

"Fmttm Prediction: Boro to hold Blackburn to a draw. Maybe even a repeat of the 2-2 draw we managed a couple of Boxing Day's ago. There will be a big and very young crowd cheering us on today, Rovers running those £5 under 16 tickets again. Such a good idea. All clubs need to do everything they can to get schoolkids back to live football."

I will be very surprised and extremely disappointed to see a sub-20,000 gate today.

We have an awful record against Boro in the Premier League at Ewood, with only a couple of 1-0 wins to show for it.

This will probably be a tough game, and I'll take Rovers to get another 1-0 win with Bellamy scoring a late goal as Boro tire after their midweek exploits.

hopefully that roma game did them in

or it could have put them on a high

either way this tie is a banana skin that we are going to fall on our arses with

0-2

Although the match seemingly wasn't enough of a major attraction to tempt you into making a trip over from Malta. 

Or indeed any other this season ........... or last .............. or the one before that.

Please stop me when we're getting warm.

That's entirely your prerogative but you're like a broken record with your constant berating of the population of Blackburn.

Just sick to death of people who don't go criticising other people for not going.

I personally don't judge people who won't cross Nuttall St. to watch us but people in glass houses etc............

Let me guess.

Your mate's Gordon

(and you're trying to be as provoactive as him),you're on the fans forum, you have several bad hair days and you like the sound of your own voice smile.gif

I've just looked at my list of games I've been to. Between leaving Blackburn and getting a base in Malta.

I averaged 21 English games a season

I averaged travelling 150 miles a game

...and did that for 28 seasons

Which works out as travelling 88,000 miles watching domestic football.

Just sick to death of people who live close to Ewood criticising other people for.... (I presume that you are going for a drink before the game- easy relaxed preamble to the game and you are still able to post 99 minutes before kick off)
