Ok I will kind another one by starting a thread.

Rovers will not beat Swansea at Ewood.

Off you go..

PS. Better get to the game in person as i doubt the next game at Ewood will be played in front of spectators because of the virus.

Looking forward to the game. I'm hoping we can cope without the loss of Lenihan and improve our deliveries in to the box which let us down against Stoke

Could see Walton being exposed , Swansea will unlike stoke at least have a go at it . That may act in our favour .

against Stoke it was baffling how we were not set up to deal with what they would do nor did we adapt

I agree Swansea will cause more of a goal threat than Stoke and will probably have more of the ball  , Nyambe will move to C/b and Bennett in at R/b is what I am expecting It would be a huge shock if Mowbray selects Mulgrew I would love to think Rovers could win but realistically we are looking another another draw 1-1

@The HypnoticI noticed the other night that The Wellington on Livesey Branch Road has re-opened, you may want to start your crawl there as it is just up from the Raglan (it will make up for the White Bull further down that’s closed).

People paying Swansea far too much credit, rather odd when people were playing Stoke down as an easy one. I do wonder if people follow football sometimes. They haven't even registered a goal in 3 of their last 5 away games. They have 9 points from the last 8 games combined.

Like us they most certainly need a win so at least they won't sit back. Should make for a much better game than Wednesday I feel.

2-0 Rovers.

We've been infected by the virus for nearly 10 years!

I can see us being both more likely to win this but also more likely lose than the stoke game. Swansea will give it a go and I can definitely see them scoring. Our current squad however prefer a team that attacks us. We were devoid of ideas against a stoke side who camped in their own area.

Unfortunately for us and our play off hopes I can see a high scoring draw. 2-2.

If Lenihan was in id say we would have sneaked it. Hopefully proved wrong. 

Mulgrew to return?

If Gallagher starts 0-1, if he doesn't 1-1.

I haven't a clue what the score will be but surely Mowbray has to realise that our best chance of winning is by playing a balanced team with players in the positions in which they are strongest. On Tuesday the balance wasn't right.

Personally I would play Carter at centre half and leave Nyambe at full back. I'm sure Mowbray won't do that though.

1-1. Be another boring one. Gallagher will start again as well which doesn't help, Dom Sam clearly better in recent weeks.

Rovers to confirm their credentials as mid table nearly men, lacking the guile and steel required for consideration as play-off places candidates.

Whatever..

Swansea will have watched our toothless performance in midweek and taken note. 

They're a decent side and we have no Lenighan. 

Swansea 2-1.

I agree but I don't blame Gallagher. He's hardly another Shearer but his confidence must be shot to pieces. Mowbray is destroying him.

Weather forecast to be shocking with rain and gale force winds so play in their last third and force the mistakes - no point trying to play fancy stuff.

Would Johnson at centre half work?

I'd love their to be a  viable alternative to moving Nyambe from right back.

Is Mowbray destroying Sam Gallagher? He's played up top on plenty of occasions. Was dismal at Birmingham, and mainly played upfront Wednesday night without threatening too closely.

If it is EB, RN, TA and AB it would be the first all black back four in the clubs history.

However, more importantly, it would also lead to a loss.

How many of this weekends matches do you think you can predict correctly?  Its another busy and important weekend in Serie A and hopefully the Coronavirus doesn’t put a stop to any games this week.  Regardless, me and bunch of footballing brains have predicted this weekends matches can you out score me?  Well why don’t you have a go?

I'd put Johnson in at CH before bringing Del and Ell in ..

I thought Williams was one of our better players this season until his injury.

I would consider replacing Johnson with Buckley tomorrow. Since the Luton game, his only positive contribution was against Bristol City, which isn't good enough given the chances he's been given. I'm not sure how he's ahead of one or two others in the starting line-up. As for putting Johnson in defence - no thanks. I'd rather see Charlie there, because I reckon there's more chance of Charlie coming in to prove a point and put out a good performance than Johnson showing any signs of improvement, let alone when he's out of position.

William's isnt fit. 

So looks like Nyambe at Centre back With Adarabioyo according to Mowbray's comments at press conference. Bennett at right back. Carter on bench I guess. 

I rather play Carter at centre back with Adarabioyo and keep Nyambe at right back
