  1. Correct Stuart, Bolton is in Lancashire.

    Watched China Crisis at Darwen Library Theatre last night and they were pretty good (never really liked them back in the day).

    Kits 19/20

    Awful, possibly the worst kit we've ever had!! Where the hell does the 'green' come from?

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I'm sure its been mentioned, Martin Olsson appears to be available and he'd be streets ahead of any LB we currently have, maybe worth a punt!

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I believe that top half is a far more realistic target for us, Tony has to make all the positive sounds about top 6 as it goes with the job. As many posters have pointed out, we need 3-4 defenders, possibly a GK, new CF and CM that's 6 or 7 players - we don't have the finances to support that type of transfer activity. We are a 'work in progress', slowly building (hopefully) to a promotion squad maybe two seasons away yet. Trying to stay on subject, I wouldn't mind seeing Hanley and Gally back as Charlie and Danny will be another year older,

    Norwich - tempting fate

    Some negatives and positives to draw from last nights game that we had little to play for and they were desperate to win. Dack and Graham were downright shocking and both were correctly subbed, their lack of commitment left the rest of the team having to deal with an excellent pressing, pass and move Norwich team. These players need to have a good look in the mirror this morning and, if that's what they believe is an acceptable performance, then there should be no place for either of them next season. Bell has some technical ability but is not our answer to the LB position. Bennett is not the answer to our RB position. Travis and Rothwell were chasing shadows due to the lack of commitment from Danny and Brad, Williams (I can't believe I'm typing this) is putting in good performances at CH and Chapman looked good when he came on. Second Half was much better once we were playing with 11 and we started to cause them a few problems. Nyambe for Bennett and that second half team would be quite promising.

    2018/19 Season Reviews/Conclusions

    Consolidation season so I view it as a success albeit there are a number of positions that need strengthening. Our league position is better than the two other teams that got promoted which would suggest a decent season overall. TM has brought some pride back to the club and its very noticeable that our owners are rarely mentioned anymore. I hope some innovative season ticket deals are announced as a fuller Ewood is something we'd all like to see. Big decisions for TM regarding ins and outs, new LB, CH, CM, and possibly CF and GK required. Danny and Charlie have been two significant players for us over the last couple of seasons, but are we now at the crossroads with both of them? Realistically, a top half finish next season, a few younger players establish themselves, and more emphasis on attacking football would be good.

    Bolton at home.

    Well done Rovers, bumped into a couple of my Bolton mates this evening and, as Corporal Jones used to say.....'they don't like it up 'em' 😁

    Bolton at home.

    This is the match we must win!! My memories of my youth are littered with near death experiences at the hands of Bolton fans. My schooldays regularly saw me running umpteen miles in an attempt to escape the inevitable 'duffing', although it did serve me well as I went on to represent Bolton running in the 100 metres 😄 I blame my dad, if he hadn't brainwashed me, dragged me on the bus into Bolton, then the bus or train to Chorley to my uncles, then to Ewood every other week I may have had a much more positive outlook on things. As it is, I'm a Rover living in enemy territory. More recent times have seen Bolton fans enthusiasm diminish significantly, with the most ardent supporters either not attending games or not wishing to discuss anything football with me, (I do try to discuss their situation but they tend to dismiss me with an avalanche of abuse 😄). Anyway, enough of my torrid time as a boy, come on my Rovers, let's have a good win to allow me to visit my local pubs with my head held high and a subtle smile for all my Bolton mates.

    Just trying to provide some balance against the drivel posted by the usual 'goldfish' 😉

    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    Well done TM and the mighty blue boys. Think we are now at a point where TM is close to his best 11 after all the experiments. Next season is looking promising. Onward and upward, COYB

    No Charlie again and we win again, hmmmm! Great result today, we have gleaned a lot this season and hopefully our management team will make the right decisions. Big transfer window coming up!!
