Thanks preston blue, that was a really good read.

My Dad was at the Final and he never forgot or  forgave Dougan for the transfer request or for playing whilst carrying an injury.

Wolves were the top club at that time but Rovers were a good Cup side.

Dad always said Dougan was by far the worst player on the pitch and that we played with 10 men in the first half and then with 9 after the Whelan injury.

Years later I met with 2 Rovers Legends who more or less confirmed Dad's view. One said it was Dougan himself who passed himself fit to play on the Final and that Rovers poor performance that day was still a big regret.

I remember winning 3-0 against them in the last game of Keans first season. So anything is possible. 

You remember wrong, it was 2-3, etched on all Rovers fans minds I'm sure, surprised you'd forgotten :rolleyes:

As for this seasons game, good read PB, 

We'll not win away at Wolves, I went last season, what a terrible game, glad someone else bought my ticket

2 - 0

Yes it was  the home game we won 3-0 earlier in that season.

Indeed it was and the sages of Ewood Park thought that was an unacceptable scoreline and thought a right good booing was in order.

Good job Keano came in to show us the light.

Didn't know that. Booing at a 3-0 win. I always said the critisism of Big Sam by fans played into the hands behind Keans puppet strings. Mind you the OT match the week before didn't help Sam.

The last game of Keans first season he said, not the home game, free pie gate, but we digress.

Yes I knew he'd made a mistake or confused. I was about to post and correct blueboy but you beat me to it.

Edit: the yes at the start of my previous post was in agreement with you.

Genuine typo.

I recall typing it and not looking back to check the original poster. My silly mistake.

Maybe due to the bloody heat here yesterday at 42C shade.

What do you mean by paranoia plague?

Derek Dougan is the ONLY ex-Rovers player I have never forgiven and I absolutely abhor. For what he did to the club in 1960 is completely unforgivable.

You can have your Best, Etuhu, Orr etc. but none of them damaged the club and disrespected the fans as much as that man.

Actually this is a game where Rovers might just come away with a positive result.

Will be a difficult one.  Lambert will be really fired up hoping to rub our owners' noses in it.

Haha, I remember those £15 vouchers that Venky's gave us at Wolves away. It was crazy, before the game there were massive queues for the food vendors, me and my dad used our £15 each and bought like 2 pies and 2 drinks each or something crazy, it was great! Then at half time there was practically no-one buying from the vendors as there was no food left :D It contributed to one of the best away day experiences I have had.

The only thing predictable about football is its unpredictability.

How many football betting slips are torn up in frustration as the 'banker' home fails!?!?

Wolves will be tough - absolutely no doubt.

Who gave us a prayer against Newcastle twice, who would have thought we'd deny Huddersfield twice - all under Coyle as well.

Wolves will start strong favourites but to write Rovers off would be premature and foolhardy.

Too early to call for me.  Let's wait and see what sort of stuff comes out of Brockhall in the next few days first.
