BRFCS TV - 1992/3

Recommended Posts

After a disappointing first defeat of the season at home to Everton in midweek, Rovers once more travelled to Selhurst Park - this time to face Wimbledon and the returning Vinnie Jones...controversy was inevitable...

October 3rd 1992 - I actually missed this game as I had a prior appointment but Rovers were at home to Norwich City - at kick off, the league leaders...

For some reason, YouTube thinks my clip is a WBA game & blocked it on copyright grounds so follow this clip for all the goals & mine for the pre & post match bits !

Let's have another one shall we ? Monday Night Football at Villa Park as Rovers look to consolidate on the terrific Norwich result.

Newell was a much better striker than he as ever given credit for.

And Super Atko really was superb.

We would walk promotion with those two in our squad now.

For the Villa game, I booked a 3-hour stint in a short-time hotel as I knew they would have the game on and my Telly was on the blink.

Company was compulsory ;) :rover:

After that extraordinary defeat of Norwich City, Rovers lost their goalscoring touch...

Ouch! It still hurts to lose at home, even 28 years on!!

How good was that side though, and how brilliant was the atmosphere at the old Ewood?

Great stuff, Herbie! Looking forward to the next instalment!

The day Sutton thought ‘feck being a centre half’.

Just got round to watching these and the sense of pride is immense.

Thanks Herbie - just what the doctor ordered 😁😁.

It's a bit like nipping out to the local Tesco now - you don't realise what you've got, till it is gone! 

Although I was living in London in 1992, I managed to get to many of the games in the capital that season, and it was a magical time, when you felt great pride in being a Rover and part of something really special. It was a complete contrast to my early years as a Rovers fan, when travelling to London was fraught with worries about the narsty southern bootboys (Chelsea, Millwall, Spurs even Leighton Orient had their crews) and under the likes of Bobby Saxton and Howard Kendal and Don Mackay we were always chasing our tails and underdogs wherever we went. Shearer, Ripley, Mimms, Hendry, Wright, Atkins, Cowans, Le Saux, Wilcox, Newell, and the like - you could wear your colours with pride with players like that on the teamsheet, and we were feared (as a footballing force) wherever we went. Those WERE the days!!

Four games without a win...Rovers travel to the Dell to try & get back into winning ways...

November 1992 ends with QPR visiting Ewood & Rovers frankly need a win & Shearer needs a goal... #DalglishOut wasn't trending...thinking about it, nothing was trending...oh happy days.

Equally Shearer wasn't playing wide right, though frankly if he had, he would still have been in the top 3 right wingers in the country...

After a wretched few weeks, Rovers loss of form has allowed those big city boys from...er *checks notes*...Norwich, to open up a 5 point gap - this despite giving them a right gubbing at the beginning of October...
