  1. Quite. Drawing would make a positive change to seeing us roll over for a good old belly tickling at Ewood every other week.
  2. Chapman has to start every single home game at the very least. Tony needs to go at teams from the off at Ewood and stop worrying about the opposition.
  3. Posted in the match thread, but post match he said it's a shame we didn't have the tools required to get something out of the game. Puzzling comment given he's been pretty much single handedly in charge of club affairs without interference since the summer.
  4. 'We didn't have the tools to get something out of the game.' Excuse me, Tony. But how many players did you bring in over the summer? Big indictment of your own recruitment there, pal.
  5. Referee aside, awful performance and even worse result against a terrible Wimbledon side who will be in and around the lower end of the league come season end. Their away record is beyond abysmal too. Too negative from TM for me for a home match. He has too much form with this. Very disappointed.
  6. Samuel should never be playing wide.
  7. Tin hat time. But we haven't been playing that well during this run. Just been resolute and taken chances when they've come our way. Therefore, expecting us to win 4-1 MK style will not happen every time at home. Back down to earth today I fear.
  8. Don't quote me on it but you would imagine so. If you look on wiki at previous seasons it highlights matches won. Unsurprisingly the 3+ victory patches were about as rare as hens teeth since the turn of the millennium!
  9. After a bit of digging, it would appear the last time that we won five on the bounce was back in our promotion season of 2000/2001, where we won six on the spin before drawing away to Pompey. Those six were: 18 October 2000 Wimbledon A 2-0 6,019 Willmott (own goal), Flitcroft 21 October 2000 Grimsby Town H 2-0 16,397 Flitcroft, Jansen 25 October 2000 Tranmere Rovers H 3-2 17,010 Hughes (2), Østenstad 28 October 2000 Huddersfield Town A 1-0 12,287 Østenstad 4 November 2000 Stockport County H 2-1 17,404 Hughes, Hignett 8 November 2000 Barnsley A 2-1 13,622 Jansen, Dunn
  10. Big big win. Seems like the boys have grown some cojones over the past few weeks. Last time we won 5 league games on the trot anyone?!
  11. How many goals did the likes of Neville and Cole score? Even the likes of Walker only ever score extremely rarely today. So long as they're defending well, and adding value going forward through assists and providing telling passes, then what's the issue?
  12. My Mercer pre-match prediction worked wonders against Rochdale, so... Somebody has to beat Scunny at some point, so why not Mowbray's boys, who are absolutely bouncing after three wins on the trot. It was just a matter of when, not if, we'd find our stride, and boy have we found it. Fancy us to win at a canter, yet again. The Scunny journeymen at the back won't be able to cope with a rampant Roves as we glide home by 4 goals to 1 with Samuel and Chapman running them ragged. When this banker rolls home I'll be nestling back with a bottle of vintage red.
  13. One bluenose quote on Twitter had me laughing my tits off, 'he needs to pass it forward a bit.'
  14. 2014/15 season I believe. God knows when we did 4 on the spin though.
  15. Always rated that Antonsson lad.
