    Wigan Athletic (A) - Saturday 27th June (3pm)

    Miles off. Awful result, forgettable performance. Never looked like scoring against a nothing team. Rothwell, Gallagher and Bennett need to go. Bennett’s performance was embarrassing. We’re not good enough to leave Armstrong out of the team.’

    January transfer window 2020

    How do you know what our long term targets are? Just because you don’t read about it on twitter doesn’t mean the club have no interest. Gallagher sounds like he was a target over several windows and we got him (regardless of how that’s turned out). I’m not sure any club in the Championship can confidently stride out and pick up every target they want.

    Bristol City (H) - Saturday 20th June - 3pm KO

    We were the only home team to win yesterday. Home advantage definitely seems to be counting for less. We’ve given ourselves a very good chance. Think the break came at a good time and our squad depth can be utilised with the 5 subs. Evans and Holtby returning are big pluses. Being the outsider also helps.

    Season Restart

    They get similar gates... IN WEST LONDON. Be very surprised if we didn’t get a significantly higher proportion of our fan base asking for refunds. Given that the club make a loss on every game where we don’t get 15k fans, I understand their concern. I do think the right move is to offer refunds but I’m not sure we can compare our area of support to QPRs.

    Season Restart

    My only issue with this, is that it is very easy to find fault with how the club are running things. I’m not defending them, but what is the alternative? Crowds haven’t significantly fallen since Waggott arrived. What would you do differently? Lower ST prices? Scrap the ‘Waggot Tax’? You’ve said yourself that we have a core 8000 ST holders and very few walk ons. Ultimately, is any ticketing initiative going to significantly change that?? If we reduced tickets by 25-30%, do you really think we’d get another 5k regularly through the door to watch Championship football? I’m not confident. Is it worth the risk? Possibly, but it’s not clear cut. There will always be calls to make it cheaper. Blackburn isn’t an affluent area but we’re trying to survive in a league where clubs are blowing £25-30m a year. I can guarantee that the same fans calling for radical ticket price reductions are the same fans criticising our transfer business when we don’t spend more money. Can’t have it both ways. Blaming Waggott is easy. Actually providing solutions is not.

    Season Restart

    Get a grip. The club have said that they’ll be providing further details as to how the system will work. What more do you expect them to do? If you’re not sure about how to use the Rovers online accounts, have you tried to contact anyone about it? Or just resorted to slagging off the club on the internet? Fans can’t attend the games for obvious reasons so ST holders are being allowed to watch the games online for free. How is that ‘forgetting’ the fans? Clearly this is out of the club’s hands and I don’t see a better alternative to what is being proposed.

    Football League Suspended

    The issue is that the players and staff can be regularly tested. The fans can’t. So BCD is theoretically safe. It doesn’t rule out the possibility of a positive test but the players are in a far safer position than the fans. i see this as maintaining the integrity of the competition. How else can you resolve the leagues? Fans clearly aren’t going to be allowed to attend for months and every other proposition has significant draw backs. Ultimately, what is the alternative?

    This isn’t sport. You are allowed to criticise your ‘team’. Stop slavishly defending the Govt on this, it’s doing you no favours at all. Even the DAILY MAIL aren’t buying Cummings’ story. The real issue here is the government defending Cummings’ actions, it’s disgraceful.

    The messaging up to now has been relatively clear. Whether we agree with it or not, ‘stay at home’ is not open to ambiguity. The messaging now is all over the place. ‘Stay Alert’ (?). To an invisible virus? You can’t expect the public to figure it out for themselves. People can now justify seeing multiple members of their family and friendship groups, travel to beauty spots and go outside for as long as they want. Expecting people to self-police social distancing is incredibly naive.

    You can’t treat the public like sensible people. The last 4 years prove that. You have to calibrate any message for the lowest denominator. Keep it clear and simple. Then it stands a chance. This is a mess. How on earth can this be enforced? It’s a complete abdication of responsibility to ask the public to determine what is suitable or not. The vast majority of people may be sensible but the sizeable minority who aren’t will endanger thousands of lives.

    Have you heard what Trump has said out loud to the media about women?? Biden has got to answer some very serious questions and it’s a shame that he’s been put up as the only alternative to Trump. Pete Buttigieg would have been a far better candidate. But do not overlook how awful Trump is. He is a disgraceful human being. Even if you accept the allegations against Biden, he is a more suitable candidate for President than Trump on all fronts. It’s not even close. That shows just how low the bar has been set since Trump’s election.

    The Best Goal You Ever Saw A Rovers Player Score

    David Thompson at Charlton in the League Cup. Bellamy’s first against Portsmouth.

    That’s like saying Steve Kean did a better job than Dalglish because Kean never failed to defend a Premier League title.....

    Corbyn led the party. He was responsible for Labour’s performance. Look at the election results, what more evidence do you need to show that the experiment failed? Corbyn’s politics galvanised the hard left but no one else. If you don’t win a general election, what is the point? Blair did more for socialism by winning in 97 than Corbyn ever achieved. Let’s get back into government.
