Another who doesn’t go perhaps ? 99 percent of being a fan is sitting there in the cold . When I was little I could have been inspired by some fancy club from exotic climbs .. but my dad took me to the Rovers 

I’m a 7 hour drive away and have work in the morning, so no I couldn’t get down tonight but do regularly attend Ewood , what’s your point?

Charlton had a decent win tonight so they will be up for it this weekend 

Yes, beat Forest at Forest who beat Leeds at the weekend. A real trap this one.

Never tell me Rovers fans aren’t behind Brereton, encouraging his every touch.

Not vintage at times but overall the quick fire goals reflected the game, it was always going to be easy once we scored 

Arma and Nyambe a class above the rest 

Suddenly Armstrong is a £10m man

Agree Armstrong and nyambe are class. Strange how many fans still whine about Armstrong yet his stepped up with goals since dacks injury. That's 9 goals and 6 assists for Arma.

We've just beaten a team 3-0, got our 10th clean sheet, are 8th in the table and 3 points behind the playoffs. With our 3 best technical players not on the pitch.

Let's just enjoy it.

 

We are but put it in context ... I was sat behind my riverside pillar.  I guess you are in Trinidad . You live football

It's going to be a crying shame when Venkys flog Travis for something like £3m to a team like Brentford, only to watch him move on for good money.

Sorry if you see my other post I was agreeing with you it was badly worded , I felt you had valid points

Thoroughly deserved the win tonight. Seemed to ebb off at the start of the second half, and I can't say I agreed with the Graham/Samuel substitution. Fortunately Lenihan managed to grab the opener and it was floodgates after that.

For me Johnson slows our game down too much at time, think he's a bit on and off and a bit frustrating to watch at times. Bell falls asleep too and costs us in the build-up, while Bennett is limited but is a good player for his workrate. Travis and Downing are real quality, Travis has benefited tremendously from playing alongside Downing it feels like.

 

What a screamer from Armstrong. Only thing missing was a goal from Brereton, other than that it was a good night of football. Two tough away games awaits but we're there lurking at the play-offs.

First half report..

bloomin awful. Hull worst team ever seen at Ewood, rovers slow. Can’t imagine anyone scoring for rovers.

FT report..

easy throughout, patience the key, never looked like losing. Travis MOTM for me.

.....take your pick.

Anybody still wished we'd signed Maddison? 😀

Yes , he’s a talent , as I’ve said many times hull is the wrong team for him . A good manager would work wonders with his raw talent

God no, he was poor tonight. Couldn't even make a clean contact with the ball in the first half scuffed everything. Gave the ball away so many times.

That second half could of carried on all night for me. Excellent performance throughout the team. Ben and Don were excellent when they came on, and dropping Arma into midfield was the right thing to do. 
Brilliant boys! Get in!!

What on earth was the formation though?

———--Lenihan- Tosin——

—Nyambe—Johnson—-Bell—-

———-Travis- Downing—-—

————-Armstrong————

———Samuel Brereton—-

If anyone gets flogged at this point you'd have to think it'll be Armstrong. Has had a cracking past couple of months, if he continues scoring until the end of the season (and we had better hope he does as I don't think many others will be) then you have to think he'll be a prime target to move on for decent money in the summer.

Another win chalked up, another clean sheet. Not a great game, not a great performance until the last 20 but three points off the playoffs with most of the creative players on the treatment table.

Only Rovers could make a 3-0 win with 71% possession a tough watch.

I think this is it for me ... what a way to drag out 12th place ishhh again

First half should've been 3-0; second half couldn've got another 4. 7-0 wouldn't have flattered us. 

3 points off play off places; excellent! 🙂

I think he was never a winger, he drifted in and out for much of the season. Come good now though!

Surely we are not going to judge judge players on one game?

Hull were shocking. We’ve got it bad, but their fans must be depressed, flogging their best 2 players in January. Probably the worst team to come to Ewood this season. Replaced with Maddison who looked like he could barely move at the end. 

Would have liked to see Buckley earlier, and Davenport / Chapman at some point given what we were up against, they’d have a chance to get their foot on the ball a bit (how often do we have 70% possession?)

Bennett shouldn’t be starting, and Johnson didn’t look up to much. Would like to see a change here ahead of Charlton. 

Armstrong keeps scoring screamers!

We can be frustrating at times, but with our injury pile, a 3-0 win keeping us in touch is nice to see

Why has nobody else bothered then? He's 26, hardly a kid.  Bowen leaving forced Hull into drafting someone in last minute or he would probably still be at Posh right now thinking he's better than he is. They don't appear to be missing him either.

Because the performance gives me no hope for the future. Tell me who has played well tonight? It would take longer for me to tell you who didn’t perform

Lenihan, Armstrong and Travis all played well. Think Both Brereton and Samuel did well when came on! Last 20 mins Rovers had 90% of the ball.

Saw enough from Breo give him a start next time out. Quick feet at times with players surrounding him, looked mobile and tried to get involved. Needs to learn to stay central instead of wandering about too much though!

Absolutely, he’s somewhat ungainly looking but was willing and had them concerned
 

Samuel deserves a go as well delighted for him bagging that goal
