  1. But hold on a minute everyone- I thought that when Dack and Travis came back, we’d be flying up the table. Oh right, that didn’t happen did it?....

  2. His latest line is telling us to “look at St George’s Park” OK Steve, this is from the “about” section on the FA website... Built in 2012 and set in 330-acres of stunning Staffordshire countryside, St. George's Park is the home of England’s national football teams. With 13 outdoor pitches, including a replica of the Wembley surface, a full-size indoor 3G pitch, a suite of rehabilitation and sports science areas, and an indoor futsal arena, St. George’s Park provides world-class facilities for the England teams ahead of international fixtures. I’d add about another 8 storeys t

  4. Members of the Rovers Trust Board have a Zoom meeting with the Rovers CEO tonight (Thursday4th) and there will be a Newsletter issued by end of weekend. This Plan is still at a very early stage at the moment. If you are against it and live in the Ribble Valley Council area(as 148 of Trust Members do) then you have a democratic right to object(or support). I also know that the Fans Forum has a Zoom meeting with SW on Monday....so you can put views to them before Monday. As Trust Chair ( cocked up my Mhead log-in) I am personally more worried about any changes in Rovers Strategy(or lack of

  5. We now have people going on saying they should just sell the whole lot and build a new site elsewhere on cheaper land. Honestly i give up, similar yells for TM and his pals and 'all he's done for the club' (like er, just be paid to manage it) . Yet Jacks legacy and all he did for the club can be pissed all over so a few chancers can get kudos from their paymasters and maybe make a few quid. Are they too dim to realize they are being sold a mirage by a salesman ?

  6. Waggott might think he said enough when he lauded the virtues of Everton’s training facilities being on one site. However, what he didn’t say was that Finch Farm covers an area of 55 acres, whilst at the same time Brockhall can accommodate the same facilities in less than 20 acres.

  7. Continuing on a similar theme - in less time than TM has been managing Rovers the Beatles went from ‘She Loves You’ to Sgt Pepper (making Revolver, Rubber Soul, Help & several other classic albums on the way). In less time than TM has been managing Rovers the U.S went from Pearl Harbour to the unconditional surrender of Japan (developing nuclear weapons on the way). In less time than TM has been managing Rovers the Red Army went from nearly losing Moscow to the fall of Berlin (causing Hitler’s suicide, the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany, conquering half of Europe and unc

  8. Nine years in total. World War Two started and finished inside of six. Nine years is Dr no to diamonds are forever. A little bit longer was putting the twin towers up, eleven years. Eight years was what it took yer man bolt to win nineteen medals. Todger tugging Tony needs nine years and a bunker busting budget to get Blackburn rovers promoted. Its a journey alright. Camino de Santiago I would say was popping to the shops for a bottle of copydex and cheez whiz on comparison. Quite amazing. It's like snakes and ladders, but there's ten times as many snakes, and they all take you right bac

  12. He can't say it's a cost cutting all under one roof job then marvel at a large Premier league clubs as an example. Double glazing salesman. It's a downscale that might pay for itself and realize a nice bit of commission.

  15. What I really don't like about the injuries narrative is that we've had injuries all season and managed to stay within play off contention until recently. Always felt we were doing well in spite of a couple of key men missing (e.g. Dack, Travis, plus smaller injuries to players that regularly start). Mowbray now isn't getting the best out of the players that were doing well earlier in the season. It's very worrying and even more so that the seemingly social media element of our fan base can't see this. We aren't even playing good football, so this rhetoric about our journey is just frust

  16. I had been willing to give Mowbray more time until this last couple of weeks when some of the things he has been saying have you just been truly bizarre.. the worst comment has to be that after the Reading game we have sat down and had a chat about how we can get more people into the box...… You mean it has taken 33 games to realise we don't get enough men in the box

  17. But will the new training facility be guaranteed Cat 1 Academy status ? Is any of this is worth the effort? We already have excellent facilities for both a Cat 1 Academy and the first team. Lots of grass pitches, floodlit pitches, indoor pitches, swimmimg pool, class rooms. Will a new training centre squeezed onto a smaller space really be of so much benefit to the club that it is worth all the disruption and effort. I can't see it.

  18. Planning application going in for the houses whatever happens to the Academy or it’s status. These plans have been in the pipeline for quite some time, but Waggott decided to keep the fans in the dark. I can’t put into words how I feel about the whole scenario. Jack Walkers money paid for everything down at Brockhall and this crew are cashing in on it. Disgusting.

  19. We all know he needs replacing but how do we make it happen? There is nobody listening to fans' concerns, not even our fellow fans in some cases. There will very soon be no reason to open Ewood as nobody will want to attend, except the odd few who go because they always have and haven't found anything to replace the meeting with their mates at the footie

  21. My prediction is the manager will be in his job Monday morning and in his post match comments Mowbray will say the following: We’re frustrated We move on We were the better side We had more possession On a journey I’m working class With regards to this new “working class” thing he’s coming out with to somehow justify his position. Frankly I’d prefer a pampered member of the aristocracy if he played players in their correct position and could organise a defence.

  22. So the understudy of the guy running the department arguably responsible for the poor conditioning of players is now the main man. A classic rovers downgrade.

  24. @BigdoggsteelIf Mowbray is here at the end of the season, we'll be in League 1 next season. He has to go and go now. By go, I mean he and his friends have no more to do with Blackburn Rovers.

  26. By the end of March we will be 18th or lower and Mowbray will be Manager. He runs the circus at the Ewood level and he's not going to tell his mate Maggot to bin him. We are screwed big time but it may be next season before Mowbray relegates us. Absentee owners leaving the door open to chancers and part of the fan base supports them/ him. Fucking surreal.

  28. So awful to read that. Even you! One day, someone will have to do a selection of such posts from this very board, since 2010 and publish them, as the emotional record of the distress associated with the wilful destruction of a historic football club. Do you remember us miming Tony Field's toothless goal celebration at Watford on a dance floor sometime in 1973?....Mamamama.Those women thought we were on "our day out"! I boycotted 2011-13 in disgust and sadness,..... but I still kicked every ball.. I did it again on the appointment of Coyle..The outstanding candidate!...Such a in

  30. That looks horribly like me, me, me Chaddy. Of course some journeys are tricky with public transport. But equally many people cannot afford their own transport or are unable to drive for health reasons and are therefore reliant on public transport. Why should they be effectively subsidising car drivers? Petrol was on average 129.9p a litre in 2010. 11 years later it's about 10p a litre LESS than that. In the meantime train fares have gone up by about DOUBLE the inflation rate. How is that going to encourage people to cut their carbon emissions?

  32. Glad you've raised this point which again flies over the head of the 'nice guy' brigade. Been saying all season the squad has still been good enough the odd game aside to field a team to win games against mostly similar opposition. We were still doing ok obviously helped by the crazy early season bounce. Now as more become available we've gone into another tailspin, it's classic Mowbray. The more he has at his disposal the more crazy the selections/tactics and formations get. That's the whole issue with him just too much messing around, worrying about the odd bog standard opposition

  33. Yes there's definitely been quite a swing in recent weeks on twitter and facebook. A lot of it is now directed towards Mowbray himself on the back of some of his jibes and excuses. So i suppose it prompts the old 'but he's a nice honest guy' crew to fire back. As for crowds i agree i think we'll be back to 6 or 7k next season if restrictions are off, which will be embarrassing for a club like us in this era. Of course they'l have the after effects of covid to hide behind. Swaggo will be doing all he can, after another price hike.

  36. Barnsley a lower budget Brentford. Have managed to assemble an exciting positive side on a relative shoestring but most importantly have the ownership, plan and structure to cope with managerial and playing turnover. Sourcing Stendel, Struber and Ismael impressive recruitment that has worked each time. Imagine the chumps at Rovers doing similar. The Barnsley rise is awkward for Mowbray, Waggott and the Facebook morons. Having whinged about everything from time, resources, parachute money and a journey Barnsley are now showing us up on each front. He's had excuses galore for Watford,

  37. For SW: 1) are you empowered in your role as chief executive to remove - or recommend the removal of - a manager if results dictate it is in the best interests of the club? 2) does your close working relationship with the current manager create a conflict of interest whereby you are unwilling or unable to recommend his removal even if results deem it necessary?

  38. The people running the club simply don't have the capability to deliver a project as suggested. They struggle to maintain what we've already got. The name of this game is getting grubby hands on valuable land ripe for development. That's the easy part. Follow the process in a very lucrative part of the world and watch the property developers clamour to buy it. The rest is hot air to quieten opposition and get it through smoothly. Sadly many people are just too easy to con.

  39. I'm fine, though I think you missed the sarcasm. No, you have said you'd keep Mowbray to the end of the season. You think, we've got enough points. If Mowbray is not sacked now, we're relegated. Mowbray came in with 15 games to save us, he failed. Remember. When Johnson was appointed to coach of the U23s, I was sceptical. He did a good job. Perhaps you underestimate the difficulty posed by a senior player coming in to play in a different style to the then seniors. Johnson did so. You, lost for words? Never. You are being ignorant. Johnson knows the players and what he's got to

  40. Beeching's henchman, Transport minister Ernest Marples, was the real villain. He owned with his wife Marples Ridgway, a road construction company, so he commissioned a report from Beeching that recommended closing down thousands of miles of railways, to the benefit of Marples Ridgway! Then he fled the country to escape the taxman. The archetypal corrupt Tory

  41. My question: TM has said several times recently that we fans expect 'instant results'. Our expectations of a playoff push were set by the manager himself. That means Tony is either a liar or incompetent. Which is it, Mr. Waggott, and why are neither sackable offenses? (Deliberately provocative)
