    Philip has someone given you a "youth speak" book for your birthday or something? Whoever it is, make sure you buy them a crap Xmas present! They've clearly given you the 2010 edition from the bargain bucket. 😀

    I did as you asked. Not the result I was expecting from your statement. 🤔🤔 That's the first 2 pages. I think by page 3 a few posters are questioning the fee and whether it could be spent better on the defence. But that's not a reflection on BB himself, can't see any personal derogatory comments towards him, just budgetary queries. I think you're maybe getting confused with the comments made about BB after he had severely underperformed in a Rovers shirt for over 18 months. But I'm guessing he would be big enough to admit that period simply wasn't good enough himself. Let's not rewrite history and pretend he was never welcomed to the club. A lot of people, including me, came to the conclusion there wasn't a player in there and he'd never come good. He's proved us very wrong the last 6 months, which is great news. Subsequently a lot of people, including me, have held our hands up and admitted we got it wrong. So not quite sure what point you're trying to make. Isn't that what you wanted? The masses to see the light? (Or more like Ben to shine the light). It's happened, you've got your wish. You should be happy no? Unless, of course, it's just "I told you so!" points you're after. 😉 In which case, just let me know how many, and I'll bag em up and send your direction asap.

    Boxing Megathread

    Was even earlier I think Gav, from around Rd 5, that his corner seemed to be panicking. That is way more worrying than taking the knee to get out the fight. If his eye was badly damaged then fair enough, I don't blame him for taking the easy way out. He's young at 23 and potentially plenty more battles ahead. But it seemed from early on that he simply didn't like getting punched. Which is a slight issue for a boxer. I reckon the bloodied nose was troubling him too. Looks like he can dish it out, but can't take it back.

    Good call. Not many gave JJ a chance.

    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    Barnsley have scored exactly 2 goals against us the last 6 games running. In 14 matches against them since 1997 they've only failed to score once (0-0 draw in 2001). If we keep a clean sheet today I'll be stunned and pleasantly surprised. In reality, I think we need to score at least 2 goals, possibly 3 to win.

    I'd hate to see what happens when you do start making judgements.

    "That Dolan lad looks good, Goes to show what a great youth System Blackburn have" 😂😂😂😂😂 Fair play to em, I do enjoy a bit of gallows humour.

    93rd min and Big Ben is sprinting to close down the keeper. 👏👏 I'll take a jug of custard with my humble pie thanks.

    I think the contract is even so many per month. So hardly any Championship games on red button this week, but a load on next week including us v Millwall on Wednesday.

    Sounds like a hell of an experience. Good for you. Thanks for the detailed reply, interesting stuff. MMA eh. Well, I ran out of TV shows with all these lockdowns so we're currently doing "Kingdom". Good watch. That's about the closest you'll get me to an octagon. 😀 My wife seems to quite enjoy the male bodies on show. Not an ounce of fat to be seen. It's a stark contrast to the male body occasionally on show in our house, as evidenced in the previously mentioned dietary pattern. 😂😂

    I'd targeted 4pts from Luton and this match for me to keep holding out hope for the playoffs. So, we need a win to stop that hope evaporating. Wish I felt more confident, but I simply don't. Hope the teamsheet boosts that confidence.

    Out of interest, which benefit do you value most? - personal health vs health of planet. Can you put a percentage split on it? I'm interested to gauge your motivation. Really bad timing for you to bring up this topic again after my weekend. I had steak with pepper sauce for tea Saturday, full roast beef dinner Sunday, fried beef hash Monday with the leftovers. 😯😯😯 Unlike us though, we're generally more chicken people. Maybe only have beef once a fortnight or something. That is better right? (if you're gonna have meat). I'm under the impression beef is the worst for the planet from all the methane etc, but feel free to put me right on that, you seem pretty schooled on it all.

    Unreal! Done in plain sight too. He seems so proud of himself in the quotes. Like his hard work deserves rewarding. His first company was worth about 4.6k when it was dissolved. (Platform-14 Ltd). The new company (P14 Medical Ltd) was showing a loss of 486k as of 31st December 2019. And it had £145 cash in the bank. 😂😂 What a difference a year makes!! It'll be bottles of Dom Perignon this New Year's Eve. His failed businesses have been well and truly rescued. Now what will happen to other business owners when their Company's fail after this pandemic?! 🤔🤔 Oh yeah, Universal Credit.......
