    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    Well its an old saying about the successful teams being the ones that don't play well and win, or maybe we got a bit lucky today? Dunno. What's different this season for me is that we aren't relying on everyone playing well, nor are we relying on a single player bailing us out. Previously we've seen it where if Dack plays shit we lose etc. The full team/squad are carrying the can. I seriously doubt there's many better squads in the league right now. We've had it rough with injuries but absorbed it, only Norwich have had it worse than us. PNE have had it rough and their lack of depth shows. Who the hell scouted Kaminski? Get him a pay rise and make him chief scout! Millwall are a really really dull team, that's gonna be a tough nut to crack against the draw specialists. Win that and I get a bit giddy.

    Finished 1-1. Calamitous mix up at the back gifted Everton an equaliser late on.

    Ben Brereton

    Its all just speculative opinions to be honest on if having fans there has influenced Ben's form or not. Until he comes out and admits that himself it'll remain that way. The fans never rounded on him en masse but shouts of "Brereton you're fucking shit" were common, distinctly remember one at Newcastle away in the cup as soon as he came on the pitch. However, a few heckles can't really be blamed. Anyway whats done is done and hopefully everyone moves on from a spell which everyone will admit, including himself, was very underwhelming. My personal opinion is that the manager showing faith with consistent starts is the biggest factor. Pissing about coming off the bench being shunted about in unfamiliar positions wasn't working out at all. I also think current personnel in the team have helped, he seems to have an understanding with Elliott and Rothwell especially. He looks noticeably happier and a Brereton with bags of confidence playing as he is will be a huge asset this season and hopefully many to come. Ironically on the subject of fan influence, I think having fans there right now would have a further positive impact on his development, who wouldn't want their name sang aloud in appreciation?

    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    Not sure you can really compare the Barnsley of last season to this especially when Ismael has only been in charge for like 6 games, 4 of which they've won. Very tough test this, they'll be unpredictable as the manager is still tinkering and experimenting. It'll make a nice change for Mowbray to even be able to pick an unchanged side should he want to as injuries have had their say far too much lately. I think we're at the point now where we probably have 7/8 must start players (increasing when Dack and Travis are back). After that there's not many players that will attract moans and groans if picked. Bennett and Evans obviously out of the equation at this moment in time, Gallagher perhaps not the most popular pick but even he redeemed himself last night. I don't think he'd consider Bell unless of course Douglas picked up an injury between now and Sunday, fingers crossed he doesn't as he played well and looked a bit sharper last time out. I'm calling a 2-0 win. Armstrong right on the stroke of half time, followed by an open game with some squeaky bum moments, Dolan off the bench to notch a second late on.

    Ben Brereton

    What a bloody shame nights like tonight he hasn't got the fans singing his name, cos he sure as hell deserves it. And slowly some of the doubters are starting to believe 😎

    Nobbers v Rovers, Tues 24 Nov 7.45pm

    Well I doubt you'll see a more one sided game all season, hard to believe that was 2 teams from the same division. Granted they have some injury issues but so do bloody we. I watched it with Preston commentary and they were very complimentary to Holtby and Brereton and rightly so, nobody can come away with bad marks tonight. I must admit I give Gallagher some grief but he was effective against them tonight and its a shame his goal was chalked off. Preston fans who don't see much of him must think he's a class act after last season as well! Now can we PLEASE not piss about and get a decent run going here?

    I'm not sure he's up for it at the moment. His best pal died recently and he must still be in bits

    Looking for your 90s Rovers photos and video

    I have a fair few vhs videos of 1995 season including VE day and the victory parade at Ewood etc at my dads, will happily share

    Luton Town v Rovers Sat 21st Nov. 3pm

    He was good against Swansea tbf till he came off. I don't think the balance ever looks right without Holtby though if I'm honest, or, eventually Trav

    Is that the full extent of your post match summary Chaddy? 😔 Gallagher does look more useful as a sub tbh, maybe sitting watching games beforehand let's him see where he can nip in for a goal.

    Luton Town v Rovers Sat 21st Nov. 3pm

    Wasn't a spectacle, but it happens every single time after internationals and not sure why i ever expect any different. Many poor games. Glad to see Brereton giving it both barrels to the ref, he would never have done that last season and just accepted it with a wimper . The coverage was so crap I lost interest in parts. Must do better on Tuesday, hopefully we will without their cup final fans in attendance.

    The camera work was diabolical, its hard to believe that's acceptable at championship level.

    Luton Town v Rovers Sat 21st Nov. 3pm

    Post International game week always throws up some unexpected results across the board so expect a crazy day folks. I guess we're slightly fortunate we haven't had that many players off on duty but it does often disrupt momentum especially after a good performance last time out. Luton like ourselves have inconsistency this season, 3 wins in their last 8 compared to our 2 although you'd argue we had tougher fixtures, their wins came against Rotherham, Sheff W and whipping boys Wycombe. They don't score many, in fact in those last 8 games they have only managed to score more than 1 goal on 1 occasion, again against Wycombe. I do think they'll fancy their chances, let's not forget they did the double over us last season. This however will work in our favour. I envisage Armstrong, big Ben and Elliott causing real problems today and it'll simply be too much for Luton. 3-1 Rovers. If anyone fancies a flutter this weekend then the bookies have spurs at like 4/1 which is bonkers, double that with Leicester for around 14/1.

    The Ryan Nyambe Appreciation Thread

    Nyambe pulled out injured, not sure how serious but we're gonna need Douglas and Bell to get back up to speed pretty darn quick now you'd imagine. Both played 45 mins today I believe.
