I was talking 50 quid 

I put a grand on us getting promoted.

If we make the playoffs I only wished to cover my bet and make a little. ,£12,000 would still be a lot of money for me.

Been a fan of rovers from the days of Scott Sellars and Simon Garner.

A real fan wouldn't bet against their team, and I never have. 🙂

I don’t think it was, keeper played the ball for me , thankfully didn’t need it. Thought brereton could’ve skinned the keeper had he more confidence 

If any player tackles from behind it is a freekick whether he gets the ball or not. in this case the keeper came right through Brereton. for me a definite penalty.

Looked the clearest penalty I have seen in my life.

I could hardly believe it when the ref didn't point to the spot. And that's saying something as we kind of expect schoolboy officiating at this level.

I was waiting to see if they'd give the penalty to Ben considering the game was well won by then.

I thought tonight was another performance that shows why Bell should be nowhere near our first team.

He has pace, can tackle. And misplaced 2 or 3 passes. He's no Nyambe, but I thought he was okay.

Yeah, me too!

Was really hoping Ben would've got his big chance.

Comfortable performance against a decimated and absolutely dismal Hull side. Our side had far more balance to it with players in their actual positions although Downing and Bennett were on the wrong sides which was stupid.

Lenihan man of the match for me, colossal and deserved his goal. Adarabioyo very comfortable next to him against an impotent attack. Nyambe very impressive, couple of superb balls, Bell the weak link, so cautious and careless but fairly untested.

I thought Johnson was much improved, far more influential and less loose with his passing and Travis was his usual bundle of energy next to him. Downing was composed although handicapped on his wrong side, Bennett did very little bar a few needlessly rash fouls. Buckley is so lightweight, can barely get any power when he kicks the ball!

Graham was a little rusty, Armstrong as he has been was again our main outlet, absolutely superb goal, should have scored in the first minte, would love to see some scruffier goals too to get the numbers up but a threat throughout.

The myth can again be dispelled that people want anything but the best for Brereton. He certainly had an impact, full of energy and involvement, very ungainly, made the wrong choice going for the near post with a shot, potentially should have won a penalty but he took far too long to make his mind up. But far more influential than usual. I dont suddenly think Samuel is the answer but superbly taken goal from a laughable mistake and pleased for him.

When? Have not had a sweat. And think their 'shot on target' was going wide.

First half. There were a few occasions where there were some scrambles around the 6 yard box.

If Brereton shows genuine endeavour like he did tonight then that is at least a start, as in previous matches he looked like he had lost the will to even try. I still think he should have been loaned out somewhere for regular football, but if he's here then TM needs to keep him motivated and ready to make an impact when he comes on. Ideally for more than just 2 or 3 minutes at the end of a match.

Side tackle hence the ball went right , Ben knocks ball from out his feet , it’s a pen

Chuffed as always to win a football match and the goal difference looks far better now. I just couldn't see any team scoring after seventy minutes so to get three was really good. In truth Hull were easily the worst team I have seen this season and a fifteen minute spell at the start of the second half apart never really threatened. But in fairness we stuck at it and got the points on the board with a clean sheet and no apparent injuries. However I couldn't understand playing Downing on the right and Bennett on the left for an hour or so. Downing was good but I just feel he would have been more effective on the left. 

Hopefully the players get a day or two off now to rest and recover for two tough away games.

Armstrong should have scored after 15 seconds. He was on form. I was right behind the goal so have great view of Armstrong's goal. He was good all night. 

Lenihan was quick to react for his goal. 

Samuel took his goal well..

Well Hull was awful. But until we score there is always a chance of them a goal and win. Maddison was shocking. Pleased we didn't sign him. Doesn't look interested there 

Thought we look better when Graham and Bennett went off and we went 4-3-3 with Samuel starting right, Brereton centre and Armstrong starting left. But their movement was good and not still in one position got the win. 

We should have had a pen after keeper challenge on Brereton. 

Only 3 points off top 6. 14 games to go. Depending how Preston and Bristol City do tomorrow

If you can afford a grand to bet on such a stupid bet, then 12 should be loose change.

In fact, I don't believe you, so to allay my scepticism,  can you post a photo of the slip/receipt?

I haven't seen it back but did the keeper go right through Brereton? I thought it was an obvious penalty but obviously the ref had other ideas?

 

Superb goal by Armstrong.

If he has pace he never uses it, He is never in the right position to make a tackle, the 2 or 3 misplaced passes where the only forward passes he made. If you think he was OK that is your opinion. But yours and my ideas of what is an OK performance are miles apart.

Not for long. At this point it's a matter of time before they fall out of the automatic spots. They seem to have mentally collapsed just like last season, and it'll be doubly psychologically damaging knowing it's happening for a second year in a row. At this rate they could genuinely fall out of the top six entirely, which would be hilarious. I imagine if they fail to go up again this season Bielsa will be gone as two implosions in consecutive seasons is surely unacceptable.

What a great performance, the perfect antidote for Saturday's dire showing.

Well done to the players and Tony Mowbray but you wonder how many points we've tossed away this season by attempting to lump  balls out wide to Gallagher.

Thought Armstrong was sensational, his best performance in  a Rovers shirt. Good to see BB finally get some proper game time, thought he showed up well, if Bell had have picked him out with a cross at the end he'd have had a tap in after a surging run and I thought he should have had a stonewall penalty when brought down by the keeper. Samuel also looked ungainly but showed a lot more energy than he displayed on Saturday.

Negatives: Graham was poor and Bennett was dire but nothing we didn't know already and maybe the penny has even finally dropped with the manager as both were hooked.

One of the few home games I've enjoyed this season. Cracking stuff. 👍

Brereton does himself no favours with his first movement every time being out to the wing. If he wants to be a center forward he should always be in the box feeding on what arrives.

Decent win tonight but f**k me how poor are Hull? Selling Grosicki and Bowen was absolute madness, but at least they’ll have some cash to rebuild in the summer... Never been a fan of Samuel but after the injury troubles he’s had fair play to him for coming back and scoring tonight, delighted for him regardless of whether I think he’s good enough or not. Armstrong with another worldie, I think he’s gone up a level this season, last season I thought he was a liability on the left wing, never tracking back and only popping up with a goal every now and then, seems to have got better this season 👍🏻 I still think we will fall short of the playoffs, but with Dack Cunningham and Rothwell in the side, plus the option of Holtby to I think we could have been there or there abouts I really do, Amarii Bell is the worst left back I’ve ever seen at Ewood, whereas Cunningham is the best left back we’ve had since Olsson left... Ah well, can’t grumble with 3 points and 3 goals!

Bell was fine tonight, not exactly Pirlo with the ball, but was good defensively which is what we need especially when Ryan is scorching the earth on the other side. The difference between Bell now and the start of the season is night and day. Don’t know what folk are looking for in him.
