  1. Rudd Guilit, I think, was the Chelsea player manager when they came to Ewood one year. He played one half as a sweeper and one half as an attacker, absolutly unplayable on the day. The way he read the game, he was 2 or 3 moves ahead of any Rovers player that day and he was seen by many as on 'the slide' by then!
  2. The sort of game we should be winning at home and we did just that. Illness has hit the squad hard over the past few weeks, surprised Dack pulled his shirt on today having been ill for a week now. Anyone looked at the table? 10th, 6 points behind a play off place, tremendous achievement, take a bow Tony Mowbray.
  3. Looked a superb following considering the distance and Sky Tv, a real credit to the club. Made up for them all after our smash and grab.

    Did that stained glass used to be in the glass shop across from Anaz Indian in Darwen? Looks very familiar, was on display in the window for years?

    Bradley Dack

    If we had different owners I'd snap anyone's hand off willing to pay £20m for the lad. John Williams would have banked £8m and given the rest to the manager, but I can't see the 3 stooges in Pune going for that one. It's inevitable that he'll leave, we all know that, some would even say recent performances have shown his heads already elsewhere, but with limited players around him, and this season in a better league, he's still performing for me and I enjoy watching him, but £20m!! The current side isn't good enough to challenge in this league, but £10m would possibly take us to that next level and put us in contention for next seasons playoffs if spent wisely, food for thought maybe? Venkys notwithstanding of course.

    Kel Brook? Why? He had his time against GGG and all credit to him for taking that fight, but he was badly beaten, shattered cheek, then beaten by Spence convincingly. He's made enough cash surely, why carry on? Doubt I'll be tuning in. As for Fury, I am still stunned, WTF went on in LA?

    Thankfully..... I want sod all from them, if I never hear from them again it will be too soon, £39 quid or not.

    I think you're right about the Utd job, but he was frustrated here at the lack of cash/ambition and when City come calling he had to go and who can blame him.

    Superb manager for us, small budget, great chairman, the right fit for Hughes, had us playing decent football and punching above our weight. His record since has been awful, won 5 games in 27 at Southampton, tactics all over the place, players not playing for him, he seems to have lost his way as a manager, but I'd have him back in a heartbeat. He needs to tow the Mowbray line and "Get back to the basics"

    ROVERS v Sheff Wed

    We said the same in the pub, but it wasn't as good as Dielnes striker a few years ago at ours to steal them 3 points, 30yr strike, top corner, better than today, gutted....

    ROVERS v Sheff Wed

    Sheff Wednesday lost in the playoff final to Hull in 2016, and are now losing away to a Blackburn team promoted from league 1, they expect better and rightly so. From our perspective, we're doing wonderfully well to be beating teams of this calibre.

    That wasn't your point Matty, very poor, but we digress.
