  1. Wigan Away replacement Match Thread! Fresh from a promotion season, our first game of the newly formed Premier League season takes us to London as we face Crystal Palace away. A stream, from the moderators, I hear you ask? You heard that right. Watch below:
  2. Whilst the EFL is on lock down and we have some members self isolating, BRFCS will be live streaming classic Rovers throwback games to give us all our Rovers fix. Todays match sees Rovers face a strong Manchester United side, featuring Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez, who are chasing down the title. Team News: Rovers: Friedel; Emerton, Samba, Nelson, Warnock; Bentley, Reid, Vogel, Pedersen; Santa Cruz, Roberts Subs - Brown, Mokoena, Ooijer, McCarthy, Dunn Man Utd: Kuszczak; Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra; Ronaldo, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs; Tevez, Rooney Subs - Foster, Pique,
  3. Apparently they sold out 7,700 tickets in 30 minutes. Why not sell more and corden off the Riverside and give them 2,000 more. £308,000 plus spends at the bar already.
  4. So, somehow still only three points from sixth despite a pretty dire week. A nice goal difference compared to Bristol City to. Surprisingly, this still isn't over, and we still have at least a small chance of doing something special, something unthinkable, this season. A trip to Derby this weekend, where we've had mixed results over the years. We scraped a 1-0 win at home with an Adam Armstrong rocket, in a very boring encounter not too dissimilar to the Stoke City game Wednesday night. What team would you start? Does Gallagher's goal earn him a place in your ideal XI?
  5. Ok I will kind another one by starting a thread. Rovers will not beat Swansea at Ewood. Off you go.. PS. Better get to the game in person as i doubt the next game at Ewood will be played in front of spectators because of the virus.
  6. Banana skin or banana? We deservedly lost this fixture last year so not a gimme three points. Will Rothwell be back? I would start with the same eleven who started at Brentford. Controversial view but I thought Downing wasn't his normal commanding self at Griffin Park.
  7. You can see by the table attached that Rovers are starting to do better in the FAWC (especially with the games in hand). Charlton Women are currently winless & were recently beaten 1-2 by Rovers back in January. Another 3 points could go a long way towards helping Rovers retain their hard-won FAWC status. You can buy tickets on card via the link or you can pay cash on the day:- £5 Adults £3 Concessions (18-25 & Senior) £2 Kids (17 & Under) or you can go posh & contact the Club about the £12.50 Hospitality option (screenshot below) where
  8. Almost has a feel of Brentford away last season. The main questions will for TM will be surrounding a potential Rothwell return, DomSam vs SamGal and how to put pressure on David Raya in the air. Same Q's for you lot as usual: Who's going down for this one? Score prediction & goal scorers? Team prediction/who you'd play? My A's: I'm not travelling, not for a midday on Sky I'll take a stab at 2-1 Brentford with Armstrong getting our only goal. I think Sam Gallagher might end up returning, which he shouldn't, and therefore I think we'll get be
  9. Got couple of spares for brenford tomorrow , will be in the griffin pre match , ping me if interested
  10. Charlton have announced our game with them will be one of their £5 a ticket deals. Probably won't be quite the same demand as the League One season but still an absolute bargain in this day and age. Always a good day out too.
  11. ....and there he was not 10 yards away. Selfies anyone?
  12. Huge month coming up. We are a bit up against it with injuries in attacking areas, hopefully we see Holtby and Rothwell sooner rather than later. I reckon we will do well to see Holtby for this game though. I do feel if we can keep the defence together, we have a chance of grinding things out. Have a feeling this will be another draw (queue irrational meltdowns!) , will go 1-1 A win though and we are 5 points off Fulham. I think most would be consider them to be having a good season and up there as one of the favourites for promotion. Walton Nyambe L
  13. Big game but they all are from this point onwards! Tough to talk about a game that falls so shortly after a transfer window deadline day, but with hopes of any incomings withering away by the hour, I think we can look ahead to the Boro game now. Would you change anything in the Starting XI and bench? Score prediction and goal-scorers? Are you going to the game? Some key facts below going into this one, based off of Middlesbrough's home record and our away record only: Injuries to key players Patrick Roberts, Daniel Ayala and Dael Fry for Boro so a big chance to grab so
  14. So after the Sheffield Wednesday match thread continued to descend after the weekend into conversation entirely disconnected from the game itself - I think it’s time for a new match thread. Very tough to anticipate anything with much certainty for this game. QPR as good as any side on their day, and as bad as any when it’s not. Very similar to us in a way. The pressures of winning 5-0 Away and having a home game following a week of sunny rest could tell with this one. The pessimist within me says 1-1, the optimist says a comfortable 2-0, with Darragh to score another from a set piec
  15. So, Adam Armstrong in respectable form, but so are Sheffield Wednesday as a team. I was fairly encouraged by the Preston game having trekked round Huddersfield, Forest and Birmingham in a 6 day period previously, it was MUCH better than those away games. Will we revert to type and crumble away from home? Does Danny Graham get a start? Bell or Downing at left-back? What team would you go with this weekend? Are you going to the game? What's your score prediction?
  16. Apologies if someone is doing a proper preview for this, but I've just noticed on twitter that they have said there are 1400 tickets remaining for the upper tier before they can sell lower tier ones. There fans appear to be having a right good moan about it and are even on about boycotting over it because they want to be in the lower. The price is the same for both tiers. What an odd bunch.
  17. I can never think of Forest, without having my mind go back to their glory days under the late Brian Clough and their success not only domestically, but on the European stage too. Like us, those days are long gone and the likes of signing Trevor Francis as the first £1m footballer and Peter Shilton, they most expensive keeper at that time, are distant memories. Again like us they had a brief look at life in the third tier, but are now established in the second tier again and are flirting with the play offs. Having played out a 1-1 draw at Ewood, back in October and with 4 points separatin
  18. Having done the preview for the home game against Town I thought I may as well do the return one, which is effectively a home fixture for me and the small, but loyal group of Rovers fans living in the Kirklees council district. The home fixture produced a 2-2 draw with both teams having mixed fortunes since, Town just escaping the relegation zone and Rovers brushing off a poor October to begin an unbeaten run that sees us on the brink of the play-offs. Rovers are sure to have a good following and with Town having a significant number of season ticket holders, the game should be almo
  19. Fixtures on this day tend to throw up surprises, for that reason I would prefer to be playing WBA away, but what can you do. I would go 4-4-2 Walton Nyambe Lenihan Tosin Bell Holtby Johnson Travis Downing Gallagher Brereton A win would be just the tonic for last night and Dacks injury.
  20. I think the conversation over on the previous match thread has started to drift towards the Wigan game now, so here's a thread. Unlike the last four, I think this is one of the best timed games we've had in years. Last season, we went on a great run, and the nosebleed began at Brentford (A), a very tough place to go and get points. This year, it'll be extremely difficult to lose against a Wigan side who've won 1 away game in 30. To have gone on that great run this year against some tough sides like Derby, Brentford, Stoke (A), Swansea and Bristol City is really good stuff, but those games
  21. The Question is obvious... The answer is not. The option for an unchanged side has been forced upon Mr Mowbray, so what's the plan people if you're in his shoes? Rothwell in the Dack role, Holtby? Nobody in that role and a change in formation?
  22. Just like we need it, straight back into it on Wednesday, let's ride the high. A place we've never had a lot of joy at in my memory, but never a better chance to improve that. Same team Tony, nothing to discuss!
  23. Hi, I am travelling over from Norway with my dad and younger brother for PNE away. I would appreciate it if anyone who is a ST holder could help me get tickets. Best Regards, Alexander
  24. Genuinely looking forward to this, probably more so than I have for a home game in a long time. Derby not in great form, we're playing some really nice football. I'd absolutely advocate for the same starting eleven from Brentford/Stoke, against a team like Derby who'll play football like the Bees, I see no reason to come away from a winning team. Predictions?
  25. Thankfully not much time to dwell on that abysmal performance against Luton. I missed the last 35 minutes when my feed dropped and I will miss all of this because I will be flying Tuesday night. Forest next up who have the benefit of having played and won at Stoke Friday night to take top slot for 16 hours. They are no great shakes but no weak links either. Nothing exceptional apart from being the dirtiest team I have seen in ages. The niggling fouls come thick and fast stopping the opposition from playing so if we don't have a decent ref on Tuesday, a red card from frustration for o
