ROVERS V Frank Lampards DCFC

Recommended Posts

Where do we go from here, is it down to the lake I fear....

Frank Lampard FC are in town so we're all off Ewood, that's where, the home of Tony's exciting free-scoring Rovers team. It's going to be a cracker! 

Lord knows what the team will be but hopefully at least 1 youngster will play just to add some intrigue. 

FLDCFC are actually fairly shite away from home (1 win in 8 ) so in time-honoured tradition we'll roll out the red carpet and give them a timely play-off boost. 

Rovers 1 v  2 Derby County 

Att; 3100 (3000 away)

Speeedddiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Interesting statistic. I suspect that won't be mentioned in the pre-match club and Telegraph propaganda. It will be all about Frank Lampard, what a brilliant side they have and how they're pushing for the play-offs and we should be grateful to be hosting them.

They'll be more up for it than us as it's a must win for them to secure a play-off position.

Stoke had only won one in 12(?) before yesterday, so one in 8 will be no trouble for Frank and his boys. I fully expect us to be rolled well and truly over by 2 or 3 goals. Mount, Lawrence and Wilson could have a field day here.

A livelier effort and a goal for us in this one but the same old bizarre in game tactical switches and subs.

Elliot Bennett starts up front on his own or in goal.

Rovers 1  Derby  2

Finding out the team at 18.45 will be interesting.

Will Dack still have an injured heart string, sorry hamstring? Where will Bennett play? Will the two crabs occupy the engine room? Will Charlie Boy have recovered from his sprained ego? Will Rothwell be the scapegoat? Will our best midfielder be stuck on the bench?

I honestly can't see anything for us given the general malaise at Ewood.

Derby 3-0. 

Rovers as a club is in freefall with the current manager in charge.

To say I’m not confident against these lot would be an understatement. They gave us an absolute lesson at their gaff and that’s when we were ok.

 

Derby to win the match by 3 or more goals is currently 10/1 on Bet365...

Well Dack was training today,few lads having a tour round Brockhall,so fully expect him to be in the team on Tuesday.

Benno will be picked to play in both positions simultaneously. Good engine.

Well that hamstring soon healed. A touch of Lazarus there for Dacky.

I wish Mowbray would pick up his staff and walk. 😁😁😁

Dack can get lost with his constant fallouts and problems off the pitch. Wouldn't play him here at all

Dammit I was being sarcastic and meant to put Bennett there! Failure.

Only a win will do for Derby to break back in to the top six while we look to stay 16th for at least a day longer.

 

I'm sure it will be fine 🙃

No confidence whatsoever that Mowbray knows what he is doing. 

He will start his old guard and we will get comprehensively out played.

Rovers 0-3 FLDCFC

Think the team selection will again be baffling and we'll get smashed in. I'll probably not even bother going either.....

Im on the same sort of lines as you team wise, I'd play Magloire at CB, the only game we've won in recent times was with him at CB and his presence and enthusiasm seemed to give us a lift. The others seemed briefly roused from their lethargy as they wanted him to do well  and were really pleased for him when we kept a clean sheet.  Also BB up front and pass the ball into feet.

Id go:

                   Raya

Nyambe Magloire Lenihan Bell

             Reed  Travis

Chapman Dack Rothwell

                 Brereton

Tony will go:

          Raya (Sub Bennett 64)

Bennett Bennett Bennett Bennett

                   Bennett

Bennett   Bennett Bennett Bennett

                   Bennett

I like the above sides. I’d much rather us lose trying to win with creative players than lose packing the midfield with dire defensive players.
