    Rovers Quiz

    q6. Are you sure we’ve been beaten by the same side twice in the charity shield? 94 and 95 were against different teams. So was 1912. q18. Do you mean FA Cup semi finals? We reached the league cup semis with Hughes as well. We reached the semis again under Allardyce.

    Because it’s an amalgamation of Rovers and Olympic. Olympic were in the final against Old Etonians but Suter played for Rovers.

    Coronavirus

    Out of curiosity, what is the basis of your scepticism other than being contrarian? Virtually every country in the world is taking similar steps to this government. Is the scientific community wrong?

    To clearly distinguish Blackburn and the Old Etonians who also wear blue...?

    Coronavirus

    That’s the best you’ve got? The ‘If I don’t see the fire then why should I leave the building?’ mentality? Waiting to react until someone you know falls ill is reckless. Park the scepticism and follow the rules.

    Bristol City (H) - Saturday 14th March (3pm KO)

    Flu is a known commodity. This virus is not. The death rate is higher than flu and poses a more profound risk. Simple.

    Derby County (A) - Sunday 8th March [3pm KO]

    Rothwell has been anonymous. Again. When is he going to produce on any kind of consistent basis? Brereton just isn’t good enough. Sad to see him so out of his depth. Bennett likewise. Fair play to Bell. He’s done alright, Get Johnson on and shore things up. This could easily be 4/5 otherwise.

    Stoke City home

    In regular circumstances, losing a 2-0 lead would be gutting. But Brentford were better than us for the vast majority of that game and we did well not to lose, despite the sequence of scores. It was a point gained. Tonight is a different matter. One of the biggest games in the last 18 months. It’s not over if we lose, but this is a massive opportunity. We have to capitalise on the results last night.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    We’ve never consistently filled Ewood. We can probably count the sell-outs on one hand and even then, they include sizeable away support. I don’t think it’s contentious to suggest that reducing capacity would be advantageous. Brentford and Millwall are London based clubs with huge potential catchment areas. They can justify expanding their grounds based on that. The club needs to do more to increase non match day revenue. A hotel would be great and it sounds like the club are considering that in the long term.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    Sorry but I think that’s quite a lazy comment. They are investing in the club. Look at the transfer fees over the last 2 years. They’re losing money every week yet still invest to keep the lights on. Look at Bolton to see what happens when owners are genuinely unbothered. I’m not in any way trying to suggest that they’ve made up for the damage done, and I’m sure I’ll be jumped on for making any argument in favour of Venky’s but in the last 2/3 years, I don’t think you can question their commitment on the financial side of things.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    A great idea but think about the practicalities. A railway line direct to Ewood?? A transport hub? You’re talking decades to get any of that completed. The riverside is different but it’s hard to justify the investment when half the stadium is empty every week. I’m sure it will get done eventually as it is looking it’s age. I think reducing the capacity is a pragmatic decision.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    Completely disagree. Brentford controlled most of the game and we scored against the run of play. It’s a good point in the circumstances. For an hour we were comfortable?! Which hour was that? On the coach?

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    It’s not 2 points dropped based on how the game panned out. Brentford threatened to cut loose throughout the game. We were in the same position last season and conceded 5, that says a lot about where we’ve come in 12 months. Walton, especially, has stepped up.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    A very good away point. Losing a 2-0 lead would be galling in other circumstances but Brentford were always in it and when it got to 2-2 it looked like only going one way. We scored out of nothing in the first half and Brentford tore us to shreds at times. Got to be happy with a point out of that. Very few teams will go there and win. Our season will not be defined by today. The next week will tell us a lot.

    You can’t base it on today. If we lose. It’s the reaction next week that matters.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    That’s ridiculous. One of the toughest away fixtures in the league and you’re prepared to call for the manager’s sacking if we lose. We’re top of the form table over the last 17 games but that will all go out of the window I assume. You don’t do yourself any favours. Losing today is not a disaster. Losing there last year wasn’t a disaster, it was the month of results that followed which sealed our fate. Today is a big test but if we lose it’ll all come down to the reaction next week.

    Attendances

    Surely it’s both? Do you propose slashing prices to £5 a game on a regular basis? At some stage, the club has to consider making a profit. Would you prefer dirt cheap season/match day tickets and an additional 3/4K fans per week but the club slides into even greater debt? It’s a very difficult balance to strike. The truth of it is that, in football terms, our tickets are cheap in comparison to other clubs. We struggle because Blackburn is not an affluent area and there are a number of league clubs within a 20 mile radius. I don’t know what the solution is but I’m not pretending that the simple answer is to keep making the tickets cheaper.

    Brentford (A) - 12:30pm KO (Sat 22nd Feb 2020)

    Neither of which have started in the back 4 in nearly a month and we’ve just kept back to back clean sheets....? The benching of Bennett does seem to have flown under the radar for some. He wasn’t involved at all against Charlton. Seems firmly out of the picture for now.
  19. magicalmortensleftpeg

    Attendances

    We’re a championship team, how on earth can we justify an in-house TV station? Do you want our debt to increase even higher? Would you seriously have kept those things running if you were in charge? Be reasonable.
  20. magicalmortensleftpeg

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    Would you have selected Buckley and Samuel over Graham? I see Bennett is barely featuring any more, despite the injuries which I think many people doubted would happen. Out injuries are largely concentrated in one area of the pitch which is a plus.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    It’s a post match interview, why on earth are you taking comments so literally? All managers down play wins to avoid bringing pressure on themselves. Just give credit where it’s due. He’s done well over the last 4/5 weeks. Failure against Fulham isn’t something to beat him with.

    Charlton

    Bad fans? Mock offence to the mock offence I’d suggest.
  23. magicalmortensleftpeg

    Charlton

    Might return to Charlton?? We lose enough money as it is. Laying on subsidised travel to an away match which has already got significantly discounted tickets doesn’t sound sensible. £5 tickets is a great initiative to be fair. Rovers could certainly consider that for the future instead of £10 tickets.

    It’s great that your support is conditional on the manager. Classy.
