Driving on the M55 away from Blackpool today, i saw a completely chromed Mercedes McLaren sports car coming up behind. It flew past at a rate of knots.

It had a private reg with the last 3 letters SLR.

The car looked like the one Diouf owns which was in the papers a few weeks back,

Does anybody know if it was his car? :huh: I thought it might be his, but wondered if the players were still training in europe? :huh:

The article says Diouf`s £420,000 supercar. That`s madness!!

I once saw the rovers players pulling on to the a59 from brockhall to go to the sunderland game

As far as i can remember;

Brown has a range rover

Reid a maserati saloon

Warnock a Lambo Murcielago

Tugay a merc saloon

McCarthy had a range rover too i think

Hughes and bellmay both used to have continental GTs

I know its not the stars car but I spotted the team bus today heading towards Rising Bridge past Haslingden on the A56. It's the first time I have spotted the team bus other than when we have a game.

It does get other jobs you know - people can't have half a million quids worth of high quality team coach sitting in a garage all summer.

The 1999 Cricket World Cup was hosted on these shores in May and June, and the Rovers team coach of the time was taken over by the Sri Lanka team for that tournament.

Not many people know that.

Im not 100% sure but in January I was at Ewood Park, the day of the Newcastle game and I think I saw Olsson fly buy in a very nice looking sports car. No idea what it was, but I just remembered being his age and working my ass off to afford a 306 !!!

you will not believe it but Big Brad used to drive a mini when at Rovers!

What Rovers number plates do MB members have (maybe a different thread is needed)?

I have R12 VRS. Also seen a plate on M65 that contained 13RFC.

I tried to think of something for my number plate. but in malta the format is ABC 123. couldnt think of anything part from MGP EHD or RSC. But those wouldnt be the best of choices. If only they were 4 letters and 4 numbers .... BRFC 1995.

To make a whole word on the plate costs a bloody fortune !! Around €1500.

Anyway i might be getting a quad bike and would be needing a new set of plates, any ideas for 3 letters and 3 numbers ?

I forget the car but 20 or more years ago I'd regularly see 13RFC in and around Blackburn. I remember a story in the LET to the effect he'd had to give it up as he was forever being stopped by the police and fined. Wouldn't happen these days, half the number plates you see need thinking about to work out the real number. Must be a nightmare for the police.

Once followed Alan ??? (small defender, we sold him to Villa) up the M6 in an enormous black BMW 4 x 4 of some sort. I think he had a cushion. We'd just played at Villa Park so he must have still been living up this way.

About 10 years ago, at home games, there was always a Ford Probe parked up on the main road near the Brown Cow, reg A1 8RFC.

They have different wheels.

He famously got injured trying to reach the pedals in his new Ferrari. He had to sell the car I believe.

That was my Car!!

I had a Ford Probe (very Gareth Cheesman!) with the plate A1 8RFC. The police made my life a bloody misery and I took it off the car and then onto retention. I stupidly let the retention lapse and the plate belongs to someone else now.
