    Just got my tickets for Doncaster, told a few hundred left, is there an away pub that Rovers fans will use ? Also lad in front of me told no coach travel left. Asked regarding Charlton game being live at Ewood, advised announcement will be made Mon / Tues. Hoping for Wigan and Shrewsbury to slip up this afternoon !!! COYB

    Ray (Butch)Wilkins

    Sad day, lucky enough to have met Ray 'Butch' Wilkins on a Charity golf day a few years ago. Apart from being a quality footballer he was a true gentleman and always had time for everybody no matter who you were. RIP 'Butch'

    Walsall v Rovers

    Is there any news on Mulgrew ? He didn't look good hobbling around at the end of the game.

    Portsmouth v Rovers

    I was lucky enough to be there, but sat in the same stand as the Rovers fans with 3 x Portsmouth fans who I know through work. It is interesting to read some of our negative fans views on here about the performance etc and put that together with the views of my pompey friends. They were frightened to death of Bradley Dack every time he got the ball, Mulgrew's left foot and in their words we are definitely second best and we will be happy with a draw. There notable comments were 1) You pass the ball and look dangerous everytime you go forward. 2) Your big lad up front is crap. 3) Your goalie is a liability. 4) Armstrong is quick and aware 5) Mulgrew best distribution and dead ball seen in a long time at Frant on park. 6) You will go up as you are as good as any team we have played this season. There support is fantastic, when they scored the whole stadium was rocking. Great 3 points, COYB

    Plymouth Away - 3rd February 2018

    Bad day at the office, let's regroup and get on another unbeaten run to the end of the season. Lots of twists and turns to come, but as usual lots of negative knee jerk reactions. Royal Blackburn on suicide watch tonight. Lots of perfect posters who have never made any mistakes in their lives and are just waiting for an opportunity to be critical. Just my opinion KEEP THE FAITH COYB

    Patronising !!! I am a new member and was just giving my opinion reading all the negative comments before, is that not allowed ?

    We are on a great run of 17 games unbeaten (Best in the 4 x Divisions), if that was put forward at end of Oct everybody would have laughed !!! It is often forgotten that every team no matter where they are in the league will give everything relevant to their position (IE out the relegation zone, nearer to play offs etc) we have no divine right to beat any team no matter what position in the league. You only have to look at recent results (Liverpool losing 1-0 to Swansea and Wolves losing at home to Nottingham Forest) to name two but there are many more. The fact of life is there are many people who only want to see negatives when the result does not match their expectation, some are middle of the road and sit on the fence and then the others who look for positives. There is an old saying ' If you think you can you will and if you think you can't your probably right' There are far more positives at Ewood at the moment and people have short memories with all the problems suffered in the past 7 years or so, enjoy the ride whilst it is happening I am enjoying every minute of it and trust TM and the squad to deliver promotion in the next 2-3 months.
