Hi all. I had the tremendous honour of recording with James Beattie recently. It was actually the day after news broke of the European Super League, which actually seems a lifetime ago.

Obviously you all know James so I don't need to say much but it's a cracking listen, he's a really top bloke.

For those of you who went to QEGS it'll be particularly interesting.

I enjoyed watching this.  I was at QEGS with James and he had a steel about him.  He never backed down.  Rovers fucked up selling him

 

btw... Grenville suck... Hawkins all the way

You would think he would remember who gave him his Rovers debut 😂

It was Harford not Hodgson, still it was a decent listen/watch.

A shame he never came back to Ewood I remember him being linked when he went to Stoke but doesn't appear it was close according to him.

Interesting that it took a few years for Beattie to fulfil the promise he showed at youth level. Whilst he was playing at a higher level than Brereton (Copa America aside 😂), he only really started scoring regularly once he turned 23, so still time for Brereton to become a regular goal scorer.

Beattie's record:


98/99  (Aged 20/21) – 39 appearances 6 goals
99/00 (Aged 21/22) – 21 appearances 0 goals
00/01 (Aged 22/23) – 42 appearances 12 goals
01/02 (Aged 23/24) – 31 appearances 14 goals
02/03 (Aged 24/45) – 49 appearances 24 goals
03/04 (Aged 25/26) – 45 appearances 17 goals
