Paul Posted December 27, 2008 Share Posted December 27, 2008 I still find it strange to see Hughes in charge of City and Friedel in another team's goal, two individuals who have been closely connected to and very important to Rovers in recent years. Losing Hughes was a real blow to Rovers, so I continue to hope Allardyce can bring some respect back to Ewood, I'm certainly looking at games anticipating a result rather than a loss. We've had a whole string of important "must win" games for different reasons in recent weeks but I see this one as the most imortant: Win and other results go the way I expect brings everyone up to and including Portsmouth within three points of Rovers. Maybe even Bolton though I expect them to beat Wigan The team have a point to prove to Hughes Boro Pompey and Stoke will have very similar goal differences to ours City may have scored 5 yesterday but if Sam was watching MOTD he'll already know why. Hull simply couldn't defend from the wings and were badly stretched by any cross into the box. We need to get tight on City from the KO, stop them playing and cut off the supply to the front men. Quite were our chances will come from I still don't know so I'm reckoning on a very tense afternoon with Rovers sneaking a 2-1 victory. Frightening thought for you all, of the 16 ex PL clubs in the Championship, 9 are in the bottom half. 6 ex Pl clubs aren't even in the Championship!
