    BBC Prem top 10 goalkeepers

    Never rated Shay Given either, especially not ahead of Brad!

    Did Shearer play pre season with Blackburn in 96

    I'm always surprised this has never surfaced. I do have a recollection of seeing him in the CIS, grandad collared shirt, but finding a copy is almost a Rovers holy grail!

    Played as recently for Rovers as 14th August 2018 Carlisle 1-5 Blackburn Rovers https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45092540 14 starts, 7 sub appearances in all competitions Awful news, RIP.

    Derby County (A) - Sunday 8th March [3pm KO]

    Really? Completely gut the whole hierarchy of the club? Bold strategy.

    Derby County (A) - Sunday 8th March [3pm KO]

    Injuries and suspensions so key at this stage of the season, particularly with the busy Easter period still to come. Lenihan, Williams, Dack, Holtby, Evans all out? Let's not underestimate that's pretty much half of our strongest XI out at one time! 3 wins from Bristol City, Wigan (a) and Barnsley (a) is now the bare minimum.

    Swansea City home

    I think Joe Rothwell looks a million dollars, but no league goals and only a handful of assists is a poor return from a creative midfielder type, particularly compared to others who play similar roles. I thought today was one of those where a host of players didn’t hit their potential, Adarabioyo had his worst game in a Rovers shirt (at least from what I’ve seen), Travis looked a little jaded, Bell returned to his usual timid self, Armstrong isolated, Samuel likewise. That said, to be under par and still pick up a point and keep in touch with the rest of the chasing pack, shouldn’t be underestimated.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    I think the players know how important the game is, glad we have a full week to prepare, rather than the usual mid-week then Saturday turnaround. Win would be huge, but I'd take a point now. I've given up any playoff talk a couple of times this season already, but, as they say ''Its the hope that kills you.''

    Darragh Lenihan Impending Suspension - Poll

    When does the 10 card rule reset? Research only shows the Premier League (after 2nd Sunday in April) With more games in the Championship and only 4 after the second Sunday, I'd guess it may be mid March?

    When Buckley scores, Tosin does too! Both scored vs Sheffield Wednesday at home

    £5 a ticket is a great initiative, hope to see more of it in the future. Whilst not quite win or bust, 3 points and other results could put us right back in the mix. I'm always comparing us to PNE at the moment, they went to the Valley and won back in November and are (as it stands) the only side, currently above us, who have won at the venue all season. Charlton 2-2 West Brom (1st) Charlton 1-0 Leeds (2nd) Charlton 0-0 Fulham (3rd) Charlton 1-0 Brentford (4th) Charlton 1-1 Nottingham Forest (5th) Charlton 0-1 Preston (6th) Charlton 3-2 Bristol City (7th) Charlton 2-2 Cardiff City (8th)

    A leak? or pure wikipedia nonesense? Scroll down the link to England's forthcoming fixtures, 7th June, England vs. Romania at Brammall Lane or Ewood Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England_national_football_team Has someone made something up? Would be brilliant to have England in town, obviously they won't use Wembley as its a Euro 2020 warm up game, but what a coup it would be!! Last England international at Ewood - vs. Wales on 3rd March 1924 Alexandra Meadows (home of East Lancs Cricket Club) and Leamington Road also have hosted England matches within the town, back in the 1880s.

    January transfer window 2020

    I thought Maddison looked awful on Tuesday night. Gave the ball away so many times, maybe he was trying too hard, but didn't look good enough for us (admittedly based on one appearance).

    My uncles brother. I remember him telling me some of the old stories from his London Branch days, away trips around the capital, the annual meals and a particularly funny story of him hiding in a shop on the Kings Road after being caught up at the infamous 1988 Chelsea v Middlesbrough playoff final 2nd leg (which included Stuart Ripley and captained by a young Tony Mowbray) Proper Blackburnian, loved his real ale and the Rovers. Will be sorely missed.

    Rovers v Hull

    I would doubt it at this stage..... Its on the Red Button isn't it? Even I could be tempted into giving this one a miss....its pretty grim out there!
