    I think we had a midfielder who was doing well but got injured so we brought in DMWP.

    Things you dislike about football.

    - Had a Platt-era Sampdoria kit that I still use for 5-a-side now. - Borrowed Signori's one step penalty technique too. - The Dutch players at AC Milan were amazing to watch but I also enjoyed Baresi's blatant tactical fouls too on the rare occasions he was beaten.
  3. Unfortunately it looks like Rovers have had to call the match off due to a waterlogged pitch. https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2020/february/ladies-game-postponed/ For any London-based Rovers fans, Rovers Ladies are playing: - London Bees @ The Hive (Barnet) on Saturday, 14th March at 5pm. - Crystal Palace @ Selhurst Park on Sunday, 22nd March at 2pm. Next home game is scheduled to be Sunday, 29th March at 2pm v Leicester City.
  4. Really enjoyed listening to this. 👍
  5. Just a reminder that this match is happening at Bamber Bridge this Sunday & it would be great if we could get a big crowd there to support Rovers against Charlton. All the matchday info is in my original post. 👍
  6. To be fair, I got most of the images from @roversladies (they have their own Fbook/Twitter/Instagram accounts). The above is only really matchday info. It doesn't get across that I originally planned to go to a few Rovers Ladies games this season but ended up going to more because I saw the effort they were putting in early in the season & that finally started getting it's reward on the pitch. Once I started learning more about the players & the teams in this division (eg London City Lionesses are kind of = MK Dons & Lewes are very progressive), it became a whole new Blackburn Rovers for me to follow in addition to the men at Ewood.
  7. You can see by the table attached that Rovers are starting to do better in the FAWC (especially with the games in hand). Charlton Women are currently winless & were recently beaten 1-2 by Rovers back in January. Another 3 points could go a long way towards helping Rovers retain their hard-won FAWC status. You can buy tickets on card via the link or you can pay cash on the day:- £5 Adults £3 Concessions (18-25 & Senior) £2 Kids (17 & Under) or you can go posh & contact the Club about the £12.50 Hospitality option (screenshot below) where you can access the balcony behind one of the goals. or you can sponsor the ball for £50+VAT if it's still available. https://www.eticketing.co.uk/onerovers/EDP/Event/Index/829 Bamber Bridge's ground (The Sir Tom Finney Stadium) is just off the m65. There's free parking in Bamber Bridge (on the street by the ground or there is St Mary's Church Car Park which is also free if needs be). It's a 15 minute walk from Bamber Bridge train station to the ground as per Google Maps. I can recommend the chips'n'gravy (pic attached). They also serve Bovril & hot chocolate as well as chocolate bars/crisps etc. #onerovers Thanks for reading, Darmond.

    Rip Bobby Robson

    Am feeling sad on hearing the news of Sir Bobby today. In the same way as others on this thread, England at Italia '90 is when I fell in love with football. I also remember his grey suit with the crest over the pocket and how he took losing the semi-final v Germany with such good grace. Have read countless stories today of how he would put other people first and take care of the little things. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
