The pod squad convenes to review November, reflect on Sir Kenny Dalglish, Bill remembers Brockhall and much, much more. Join us & see if you can Guess The Rover before the panel & one of the panel swears...twice...no, not that one...I know.
Thanks to Bill Arthur, Jen Bellamy, Tom Schofield, Michael Taylor & host Ian Herbert.
In this special episode, regular podcast panellist Michael Taylor ( @marpleleaf ) reassesses the impact and the powers of Graeme Souness. Promotion, cup win but THAT tackle on Yorke and those transfers...
After the behind the scenes at Brockhall episode, the pod reverts to er "normal service" with a review of on-field October, discussions of tactics, formations, attendances, handling disappointment and play off memories from the 80's.
Panelists Jen Bellamy, Linz Lewis, Mike Delap, Michael Taylor are joined by new "boy" Ian Futter, which means for once host Ian Herbert isn't the oldest contributor.
Special mention to Bill Arthur for another of his wonderful narrations from Canada; this time covering off play off misfortune in the 1980's and final redemption in 1992.
In this historic 100th episode, BRFCS is invited through the hallowed portals of the Rovers Senior training Centre at Brockhall. We share what we can in this landmark podcast. Big thanks to Ryan Grant & all at BRFC of course for offering us this amazing opportunity.
I'm not sure how we improve on this so if it's the last ever episode, it's been great....*
*only joking, 101 is already scheduled...
We hope you enjoy this window into our favourite club.
Just to keep you on your toes our September review is coming out before the end of September due to longstanding diary clashes next week...fear not, there's still much to consider and in this episode a few interesting tales emerge from our panelists Jen Bellamy, Kamy & Michael Taylor.
Host Ian Herbert shares possibly the single most underwhelming anecdote about Tim Sherwood in history...not even a gilet in sight although there's quite a revelation about a former Man Utd chairman which came out of left field.
n a packed episode hosted by Ian Herbert, the panel of Jen Bellamy, Linz Lewis & Michael Taylor, reviews August, both on & off the field including the transfer windows, speculates wildly about the value of Bradley Dack & we have three (count 'em) guests -
Bill Arthur - takes us back to the 50's & 60's & his boyhood memories of supporting Rovers
Ian Futter - shares his Essex heritage & shares what it's like supporting Rovers from North Wales
Bruce Wilkinson - a regular contributor to When Saturday Comes magazine shares his love of Rovers
Ideal listening for the journey down to Bristol...please tell all your Rovers-supporting pals and spread the word !
If anyone would like to contribute a piece to a future episode along the lines of those from Bill & Ian, please let us know on this thread, via PM or on the @brfcsdotcom Twitter feed.
Thanks again to all the contributors for giving up their time...hope you enjoy !
A new season, a new series of podcasts, new theme music, a new panelist...you can't say we're not trying ?
A cast of thousands on this episode all wanting to have their say & predict the Rovers likely finishing position upon our return to the Championship. Listen right to the end as the last 2 guests have their own section.
Your host Ian Herbert tries to keep order as Josh Boswell, Kamy, Mike Delap, Michael Taylor (the Marple Leaf), Linz Lewis, Jen Bellamy (new signing) & guests Scott Sumner & Tom Schofield are fuelled with pre-season bonhomie.
Massive thanks to Joe Bamford (Biz) & his band "The Symmetry" for providing us with our own theme music for this season. We'll hopefully hear more from Joe & the band as the season progresses...
Listen out for some acronym related high jinks as one panelist mixes up the EDS at Man City with the EDL...both have some right-wingers...but...well you know...
Hope you enjoy & if anyone fancies contributing a first or favourite Rovers memory, or a Revisionist Rovers item for a future episode, that would be great.
As part of a new podcast series - "Revisionist Rovers" - we look at different characters, eras and events from Blackburn Rovers history and bring fresh perspective.
In this, the first episode, we take a look back at the impact and legacy of Ken Furphy upon Blackburn Rovers, through the pen of Jim Wilkinson.
