Did Rovers announce it on our website - i probably missed it.

I didn't see anything, that's why I went to the away team's site. 🤐

I wonder if today's game is on iFollow, or is it being shown on Azerbaijani Analogue Plus instead.

Yes had it here , I believe they are trying to track which accounts streams in the wild are coming from

I've not paid much attention to this iFollow stuff, but I'm away in France with work next week.  Can I just pay to stream the Brentford game as one off next Wednesday even though I'm registered in the U.K.?

You should be able to yes. As long as iFollow sees you connected to a foreign IP address (hotel wifi?) then it should allow you to buy it. The issue is where the device is connected to the internet...or where iFollow *thinks* it is connected !

Who's co-commentating today? 

No idea. But he had me searching 'Is Prince Naseem a Blackburn Rovers fan?'

It was blackburn born comedian (and Rovers fan) Tez Ilyas (https://tezilyas.com/)

He had less of a clue about Rovers' players than Mowbray (and that's saying something) 😚

I guess that's probably a 'Twitter thing'.

Once i realised that he wasn't meant to be an expert co-commentator, and had been brought in as a one off, I didn't mind him. It's rare that someone on official media outlet would be allowed to basically say "we would have been better keeping Raya" and "Armstrong would be dangerous if he had an end product".

I found him quite entertaining and enjoyed his passion.

To be fair, I feel like the commentators on iFollow are slightly more open about criticism than they used to be, particularly the co-commentator (Warren). Maybe I'm wrong, and I perhaps shouldn't speak for him, but there have been a few times where he's insinuated that Walton makes him feel nervous and that he's far from an upgrade on Raya, that Bell never takes his chances and is, frankly, rubbish and lethargic at defending, that we're likely to throw away a lead because it's the same old Rovers, and so on. I actually enjoy his negativity, in weird way. 😄

Tez clearly doesn't go to many Rovers games any more, but it was quite good to have a guest co-commentator on the show. Would be good if they did that from time to time to mix it up a bit.

They commentator on the red button was pretty awful. barely got a players name right but he did make me chuckle when he said the ball hit that Brentford defender right in the 'orchestra'.

Is Warren not at the game today? It sounds like he's speaking from inside a tin can!

It's a poor do from the technical team when the sound is constantly disconnecting. Knew there'd be technical problems when there was no build-up commentary.

Lol. I was just this minute on the audio menu of the TV trying to make it better. So it's not just me.

I don't mind the commentary off ....

Gooooooool!
