Fans Friendly Squad

  1. What has happened to the general maintenance of Ewood of Park..does anyone at the Club care anymore?. We were gifted the new Ewood Park from Jack Walker,a legacy dear to all Blackburn Rovers fans and the People of Blackburn in general. 'We will respect the Jack Walker legacy' fawned Madame Desai...yeah right! The current state of the Stadium is not acceptable,I urge fellow Board Members,Fans Forum and even visiting Telegraph Reporters to get involved on this thread and issue. Further photos will follow as hopefully it will shame someone at the Club into taking action,It's s
  2. No lessons learned. No possession football. No plan B. No Joe Rothwell. No defence. No defenders signed. No method. No Ryan Nyambe. No positivity. No progress. No idea. You're a nice bloke, you've done a good job but this is as far you will take us. Don't ruin your legacy, do the right thing and step aside. Charlton are relegation fodder so what does that make us? Go.
  3. A video package here of Dolan's best bits from the last game against Doncaster. He had another great half, as he did against Blackpool and Fleetwood Town. Scarily, Mowbray played down his performance and claimed that Sam Gallagher would've come on ahead of Dolan if he had have been fit, and Dolan would've been down in Leeds with the Under 23's! Hopefully now TM can see the talent that they've acquired in Dolan.
  4. Haha, utter drivel. You have no idea who's asked for him on loan.
  5. Couldn't find a thread where we could speculate / discuss who would / could take over from Tony. Goes without saying we have to upgrade and thats dependant on who we could get.. The obvious candidate is Bilic but I would also seriously consider Pearson. Actually Pearson would probably be my preferred candidate.
  6. There’s a lot of blustering back and forth about Buckley but as I’ve said on several occasions, he is seen as ‘the one’ and the LT article only adds strength to that. Show me one other young player he’s spoken about like that since Travis!!? Regardless of others opinions I haven’t seen enough to concur with theirs (and those PL scouts) about how good he is / potentially is. But I do trust the opinions of the people who work every single day with the players. I also know (and have said prior to yesterday’s article) that there have been many requests from clubs to loan him and they turn eve
  7. I’ve been giving this some thought and it isn’t really clear what the future of stadium viewing looks like for Rovers fans, and for football supporters in general. When the doors do eventually reopen - which, under this government, could be a very long time indeed - what will clubs be left with in terms of a, let’s call them a, Customer-base? Under the current administration, it’s almost certain that prices will increase - again. While other clubs may offer deals or incentives to get people back in the ground IMHO it is hugely unlikely that Rovers would do the same. Waggott has consi
  8. Not to take away from Tyrone’s thread. Discussion here...
  9. Has anyone played this yet? Looks pretty simple. I've had a go and gone pretty optimistic on predictions, over 4 shots, 3 goals and we'll score in both 1st and 2nd half😆 Win a signed Joe Rothwell shirt thanks to Rovers Select! - News - Blackburn Rovers
  10. Lost in all the pain of losing a game we should have won, Harvey Elliott had an unremarked but impressive League game debut. This Kid is one class footballer. Midfield needs to adjust its eyelines to spot the runs he makes because apart from Holtby they were missing them last night. I know that Dack is a player you build a side around but I think Harvey will come into that category before too long. Certainly Watford were treating him with the greatest respect if you looked at the lack of space he was given to work in. Even so, look at this:
  11. After ten years or so of total mismanagement, from the owners down, with the odd exception, those nominally in charge, middling managers, and chancing agents, idiots and those that have completely made easy money (cough, Murphy etc), we have been dumped out of the FA Cup. As proud winners of six of these, we went out with a whimper. Irrespective of our current manager, we are in a critical and terrible time in our World, and as a result we are confined to home, and cannot watch what's on show, save via streams and ifollow!. At least we have football to watch. But not as we know it (some r

  13. Tony Mowbray - Should He Stay Or Should He Go ? If we had a board or a chairman worthy of the name he'd have been in the boardroom at 5-00pm tonight to be be told his fortune. My vote is for go. Tomorrow or Monday morning at the latest.

  15. The 20/21 season is going to be dominated by the pandemic whether we like it or not. There are indications that the pandemic has wiped out home advantage. Results if anything are now favouring away teams and analysis of refereeing decisions are showing that the slight bias that did exist to the home side has evaporated. Would Martial have seen red in front of 75,000 at OT yesterday? It was a crazy sending off but those sorts of decisions simply don't go against the Mancs at home normally. I am going to stir things a bit but for all the horrors of coronavirus, I think Rovers could ben
  16. What's your prediction? We probably should be getting a minimum of 10 pts if we have designs on the play-offs. My guess is we'll get 8. Rotherham (H) - Win Stoke (A) - Lose Sheff Wed (H) - Win Huddersfield (A) Draw Birmingham (A) Draw
  17. Just for fun, but in your years of watching Rovers, which manager do you think you’d have most liked to have played for? Different people react differently to different manager styles, so I’d expect quite a wide range of answers. It’s not even necessarily who you think are the best managers, but which one would get the most out of you as a boss. My top 3 would be: Kenny Dalglish – Purely for the fact it’s ‘Kenny Dalglish’. I think you’d play for him just because of his reputation within the game and he was the reason we attracted so many good players when he came in. He also seems
  18. Ok so after yet another non event first half at Ewood I have finally got round to doing something I've been thinking about for quite some time and have reviewed our home first half performances under Mowbray's management going back to the League One season. I've done this because I have formed a perception over the years that our home games will more often than not follow the same old route where we might start brightly and apply pressure for the first 10-15 minutes but then after that we regress into nothingness until half time. We seem to create very little, if anything, after the firs
  19. So it's about this time of year that I evaluate our new signings and the manager's nous in the transfer window. Half a season seems a fair crack of the whip for players to bed in and show their ability or lack thereof. The last few years TM has come out very much 50:50 with great signings vs clangers. Perhaps this year may avoid some of the latter. Here goes. Kaminski - 9 Great singing. I mean in comparison to Walton most players would look good but even so he looks very comfortable and fits the style of play well. He's the right age and the fee was reasonable too. Slight reservat

  21. Considering how many injured players weve got, I thought it might be a good idea to create a specific topic where we can all discuss and update on injured players. Any word on how bad Wharton and Douglas’ injuries are?
  22. Does anyone know when the next Zoom chat or whatever will occur for the Fans Forum? I'd love to know when the current commercial deal ends and if there are plans to change it. Are they aware how generic their offering is and how much more money they could take in if anything looked different to the stuff they sell in Matalan (unfair on Matalan; they do decent shirts)? The last time I had to spend my club cash it took me half an hour to find anything on their site even slightly appealing (in the end, I went for several bags of jelly babies, some cola bottles and a scarf which I got rid of witho
  23. For me, this is the best squad we’ve had since relegation from the prem, and might possibly be our strongest for quite a while when considering loans and contract situations. To me it feels similar to the last full season which Bowyer was in charge for, where we failed to to get promoted with a really strong squad, and hence that squad got broken up with players such as Gestede, Rhodes, king, cairney etc etc. That team reached the end of its cycle and eventually outgrew our league position and it does feel if we don’t go up this season, we may be in a similar situation.
