    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Most athletic has to be Bennett. I'd say Nyambe, Harrison, Smallwood, Armstrong & Bell would be up there too

    Bogey grounds

    The David Mail penalty game was definetly early 1990, maybe March/April? Remember the penalty in front of the away fans clearly, big following that day and our last away win at Stoke. Was one of my first away games.

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    Probably just shrug there shoulders and whack another £50 on it next season. Also, I bet nobody questioned Waggott on away fans needing the whole Darwen End for most of the games this season when the opening three games proved that to be nonsense, or the fact that had demand needed it, we would have given Villa the whole end despite apparently not being allowed to unless the game kicked off at 12:00. I think somebody should at least question this at the next meeting.

    If we turn up how we did the other night, I think we'll get taken apart. Stoke haven't quite got to grip with things yet, I look at there team on paper though and think it's only a matter of time before things click for them. Easiest game of the season for me, quite novel that I can get a bus 5 minutes walk from my house straight into the town centre. (Not Hanley!) Hope we freshen the team up just a bit, I'd be tempted to throw Brereton in from the start as our main striker, he should be fired up for this one being a local lad. I'd bring in Reed too, possibly Rothwell but I'd be tempeted to keep Armstrong in just for his sheer pace. Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Bell, Evans, Reed, Bennett, Dack, Armstrong, Brereton Subs - Canadian, Downing, Williams, Smallwood, Rothwell, Palmer, Graham

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Don't get me wrong i'll take the point and move on. If we turn up against Stoke on Saturday like that though, then we could be the side to really get there season going.

    Derby County vs Rovers, Tues 18th Sept

    It should be on ifollow, I imagine the only game that isn't would be the Stoke/Swansea game as that has the "full sky coverage".

    Is this a real shirt?

    That's definitely an original shirt. The replica they sell nowadays in the club shop doesn't have the "Asics" logo on it.

    Loan Window

    Only reason i wanted Chapman to sign today was so we're not all still sat here on 31st Jan doing the whole will he/ wont he sign thing again.

    I dont think the club would come out and say anything either way to be honest, look at there activity on the last deadline day, it's as if it wasnt even happening!

    Because its 5:08 and he hasnt signed?

    Loan Window

    Reading Mowbrays comments this morning it doesn't seem likely to me that Chapman is coming. I predict some obscure loan at the last minute to cover for Samuel.

    Well Middlesbrough have just signed Mcqueen from Southampton on loan who i think is a left winger.

    Aslong as things are going well on the pitch, nobody cares about any horrible things, or wrong doings that the owners are doing/have done behind the scenes. That is the way it is, and always will be with 99% of football fans up and down the land.
  14. I have a feeling Mowbray will leave out Dack & Armstrong, gives them another couple of weeks then to get to 100%. Could see Reed going straight in for Evans if he's not right. Front four of Bennett, Rothwell, Palmer & Graham. Brereton on the bench.

    ROVERS v Brentford

    Plus i imagine there are too many regulars that "wont give up there seat" in the Blackburn end. If it comes to it i reckon they would probably look at putting it in the Darwen end.

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    That would be sensible. I know if you have bought tickets for any of the three home games then they knock that off the total if you now buy a ST. On a different matter i'm interested to see how many Villa bring in a couple of weeks, will they be restricted to just the lower tier because we cant give the whole end unless its a noon KO on "police advice"?!

    Best Starting Eleven 2018/19 Season

    Yes i do. Meant for Brereton on the bench, to start with anyway. I also cant ever see Mowbray starting a game with Armstrong, Dack, Palmer & Graham/Brereton in the same side unless injuries etc dictate.. I think Bennett will always play as one if the three in behind when fit, maybe moving deeper if the we're chasing the game.

    Best Starting Eleven 2018/19 Season

    At the moment its probably - Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Bell, Smallwood, Evans, Bennett, Dack, Palmer, Graham. Bench of - Canadian, Williams, Rodwell, Reed, Rothwell, Armstrong, Brereton I imagine in time Reed & Brereton will replace Smallwood and Graham It's great that we have options now, after Hull last weekend i was terrified at the thought of a few games without Dack, but now think we could cope without him for a few weeks if needed.

    You would presume so.

    Problem is, Evans "niggles" usually tend to last for 3 months. Hopefully now he has a new deal to play for it will just be a couple of weeks.

    Bradley Dack

    Dack will be good enough to play in the top flight before long. If he's still here in 2020 we'll have done bloody well.

    ROVERS vs Lincoln

    I hope we play a side similar to the last round. 2/3 changes but still the core of our first choice 11. Important to keep that winning feeling going into the weekend. 2-0 Rovers 6,879
  23. Far too many for me to post in here. I'm wrong about 90% of first opinions when it comes to Rovers! Main two.. Being at Luton when Chris Samba came on for his debut, i looked at my mate and said "you just know he is going to be terrible". I just rolled my eyes and let out a big "FFS" when Mowbray was appointed. Sure there will be plenty more yet!

    ROVERS v Brentford

    I enjoyed today. After what all my Stoke supporting pals were telling me after they played them and watching them the other night against Villa, i thought Brentford might have a bit to much for us today with our injuries. Always love to be proved wrong by this lot! Scrappy game that was was won by one moment of pure quality from Rothwell and two fantastic saves from Raya. What i love most about this side is that they love a scrap, Smallwood, Rothwell, Evans, and Bennett were fantastic for me. Far too often in the venkys era have Rovers sides gone down with a wimper. Long may this continue!
