  3. We have an honest workmanlike team with potential youngsters to fit into it, one flair player of note and one reliable but aging goal poacher couple with one and only one solid developing centre half. We don't need anymore workmanlike players particularly not for back up what we now need bolting onto this squad is a bit of steel, some pace wide Chapman or no Chapman and some much needed height and presence in the middle of defence. I cringe when I see names of grafters just because they are grafters. Time to think outside the box a bit, specialists in defence or midfield instead of

  4. This is mental. I've never experienced two days of football like it. Even I felt emotional watching pochettino and I dont support spurs. Amazing. Brilliant competition this year. Amazing advert for football and the premier league

  5. Don't want to turn this into a pile on, but this argument is such a non-starter. We have the youngest Rovers squad in aeons. Mowbray has given debuts to at least half a dozen academy graduates over the last 2 years. Others have been given key roles when they were on the periphery. Almost all of his signings have been 24 or under, several significantly under. How many other managers have we had who have got anywhere near these sorts of stats? Some of the youngsters don't play every week, but that happens with almost all players who get near the first team at 18, 19, 20. Saying Mowbray isn

  6. I'd much rather Liverpool win it than a club like City (the PL that is). They can win the Champs League too as far as I'm concerned. Their manager is great, they play exciting football and never disappoint on the big stages. Ultimately they are a proper club, with which we've had many a good game against as I was growing up. City are the epitome of what I hate about modern football.

  7. It was nice to see a Rovers team lifting a trophy particularly by beating them. Rovers didn't play too well on the night and at times overplayed in the wrong areas but it was a game I always felt we would win. Burnley to be fair pressed high up the pitch and frustrated us for long periods (much like their first team) but the extra quality was there to be seen. Well done to Damien Johnson on a successful season. Four of his players made their first team debuts and ultimately that is what he is judged on.

  9. How great is it, by the way, to have four teams in the semis who all want to play football? Not a Mourinho-esque anti-football team in sight.

  10. So Anderson saying he's no choice but to put them into Admin. Sky Sports saying they have gone into admin. High Court have given them a 2 week adjournment. I wouldn't want to see them liquidated but this has gone on long enough. Ultimately it's the tax man owed money and public services missing out on millions of pounds of tax here. Once again administration will clear the decks to a certain extent but those who suffer will be the small fry businesses and local people. Meanwhile the millionaires will be ok.

  13. Not premier league but sums up the atitude of some players at the moment. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11835/11714614/gareth-bale-wants-real-madrid-stay-says-agent Gareth Bale wants to stay at Real Madrid for the remainder of his contract despite the fact he hardly plays and Zidane publicly doesnt rate him. His agent saying he will only move if someone pays "US" a lot of money. Thats a decision that is influenced by money, greed and nothing more. A respectable football player would be itching for a move in search of regular games.

  14. I wish Bolton well in resolving their off the pitch situation (there but for the grace of God etc.) but once they go into administration, is there anything stopping someone buying the presumably profit-making hotel once they're administration? Having a Rovers themed hotel permanently attached to their ground is making me smile for some reason.

  15. Both legs a bit strange. No way should Liverpool have lost 3-0, should have had at least 2. Same goes for Barcelona last night. Sanchez alone should have had 2 but shot weakly and Messi needs his sights adjusted. One goal and Liverpool would probably have been out of it. However that was as brave an effort from an English team as I ever remember. The pure joy that flowed down from the stands gave me goosebumps.

  16. Im not quite sure why so many neutrals dislike Liverpool. I agree many of their fans are painful at times but no more than Man U fans (who I find even worse and are more concerned at what Liverpool are doing than Man U), Arsenal, Chelsea Etc. They are a team who play together, fight together, have a decent quota of English players with an entertaining manager who unites the whole club. I find the style of football they play brilliant to watch. I think the season they have had they deserve a trophy. They would have won the league at a canter weeks ago if it wasnt for one of the best sides

  21. My two penneth Firstly well done to the BRFCS Podcast group, good listen, well balanced and very entertaining. Would love to be a part of an episode in the future! To put the seasons conclusions into a succinct word it would be ''progress''. Particularly from our ill fated last Championship campaign and literally as we've held our own after being promoted in the 17/18 season. If Blackburn Rovers continue to progress, I will be very happy going forward. Without wanting to go over things already said, in my opinion, there is more to be encouraged by than there has been in a

  22. But he did bring Buckley, Magloire and Butterworth in for their debuts. Nyambe played plenty under Mowbray and he plays Armstrong regularly who is 21. He made Raya our number 1 at 23, which was brave. In fact many on here have critisized that and are looking for a new number 1. On Travis, you say forced circumstances, but ignore the fact he played last season and has kept his place this year. I don't get your point on Reed, in his favored position or not, he played in almost every game this season. If he actually thinks he is a "kid"in some derogatory way, then why did he play Dac

  36. I suppose it's a bit like going back in time to 1987 and applying todays rules. The team who finished 91st in the league this year, are now a non league club, so I guess you could say, we had better alter the record books to show all the teams who have finished in that lowly position spent some time in the conference. Fantasy land which ever way you look at it of course.

  39. It's because football runs on schadenfreude. I don't think most fans dislike Liverpool more than United as such, just that there (relative) lack of success has been going on for ages, and the longer it continues, the funnier it gets! I'm now totally convinced that Spurs are going through tonight, just because the funniest possible outcome is Liverpool having a night like yesterday, lose once in the league all season, and are still pipped at the post by Tottenham & City.

  40. I didn't fall for that ruse, I went to bed at half time when they played Milan in Istanbul in 2005....... A point overlooked is that last night Liverpool were quite adept at putting a foot in, sometimes quite slyly. I quite liked that facet of their game.

  41. In the Premier League next season the referee will not look at any screens. The decision will be made for him by a VAR sat in a studio at Stockley Park. This was what the CEO's of the clubs wanted. For me it abdicates the referee of the responsibility of making big decisions either in real time or a review on a pitch monitor. People who are expecting a utopian situation of every decision being correct are in for a shock. VAR is certainly no exact science.

  42. But isn't half the squad full of that already, Butterworth, Rankin-Costello, Rothwell, Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Dack, Brereton, Chapman and a few other, all fall within that category, we needed experienced pros now, ones that are good enough, the experienced pros we currently have are TURD, smallwood, bennett, mulgrew, evans, conway, williams, graham, all of whom played a big chunk of last season, of who aren't good enough, graham granted been good, but he's one hard summer training away from being past it. It's the experienced players that bring this squad down more than anything else.

  46. A bit of debate about what constitutes a young player. Of players given squad numbers this season, as at today: 16 are 25 or under 8 are 21 or under. Looking encouraging for the future. Plus the likes of Rankin-Costello for whom many are making the case for being good enough now.
