BRFCS TV - Nostalgia Thread

Did I hear the name Beckford mentioned in the commentary. Jason I think. 

I bought a BMW off him quite a few years back. He lived in Urmston and he and his wife were emigrating to Canada. His brother Darren was there aswell. 

Lovely guy he was.

The boy Livingstone...again...

 

Doesn't it make a difference when you have a target man to play to.  When you look at our two big strapping lads they haven't got the physicality that Livingstone had.

gallagher does`nt play his weight at all,he should be terrorising opposing centre backs,though tbh we don`t tend to play direct,it`s a bit of a mystery to why he was signed,especially for 5 million quid🙄

Dickov terrorised more centre backs than those two ever will and he wasn't much bigger than Jimmy Clitheroe. It's what's beating under the badge that matters more than just size. No point playing a direct game with what we have at the moment, the ball would come straight back at us.

Love all these old clips showing up.

Chris Sulley & Scott Sellars down that left flank attacking the Blackburn End is one of my earliest memorys of Ewood whilst sitting in the old nuttall street stand.

Nothing wrong with a good " ale house ball " from time to time. I remember watching Forest playing a very good German team ( Cologne ? ) in the European Cup. Forest had played good football through out but the German defence had an answer to every move. In the last minute Forest launched an ale house ball right down the middle. The German centre halves misjudged the flight of the ball and a Forest forward ( Tony Woodcock ? ) ran in to score the winner.

How many times have you seen teams score against Rovers with similar long balls ?

nothing wrong with mixing your tactics up,i remember everton completely owning bayern munich once when the great howard kendall changed their tactics and they launched it long towards sharp and andy gray,the germans could`nt handle it

Goosebumps!

One of my favourites goes like this...
