    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    Here we are again. The scatter gun approach to a Rovers loss. You mention 6 players who are in your opinion useless and in the case of one of them the “worst player you’ve seen in 55 years!” Such nonsense. Congratulations to Reading tonight for a very professional performance. They deserved the 3 points tonight. They are playing well with great confidence which is so important in professional sport. The goalkeeper change was hugely significant and probably caused the otherwise untroubled defence to be anxious especially after the early goal which was very unfortunate. Lenihan and Williams did not perform well. Johnson was missed in midfield but credit has to go to the opposition for stifling our creative players. Armstrong is still the leading scorer in the division and could have had a couple more! We continue to create chances within a game and I’m convinced we’ll win more games than we lose. Im as disappointed as any fan tonight but I’m still optimistic for the season ahead.

    Can people please post the score rather than engage in coded responses!

    Coventry v ROVERS

    Can see why Herr Klopp allowed Elliott to join us as Mowbray’s tight pressing game and quick on the break style suit his player’s development. We are so good to watch at the moment and the new players today gave us an extra slice of quality.

    Are you being deliberately obtuse? I don’t understand what you’re on about. Do we even support the same club?

    I am of course counting Wednesday as they are currently bottom of the league with -4 points which is 11 points below our figure of 7. You again are wrong in saying we have 3 defeats in 7 as we have played only 6. Im not “dressing it up” at all and I believe 2 wins is a poor return at the moment but one statistic that we can agree on and be delighted with is that we are the top scorers with 12 goals which suggests that we can be optimistic once our influential players return.

    To be pedantic but your opening sentence is wrong. We are 9 points off the top and 11 points off the bottom. Your posts remind me very much of my dad’s comments when he used to go down to Ewood saying to us that Rovers were going to get beaten today and if they did then he would come home saying he was proven right but if they won then deep down he was chuffed to bits but out loud he would say Rovers were lucky! But it’s a great mental attitude to adopt as you’re always right; a prophet of doom and gloom or a secret admirer of a Rovers revival!

    I’m not sure we’ve ever had 20,000 ST holders in a season! I would love to be proved wrong but are you sure of your facts?

    Summer Transfer Window

    I know I’m a positive person but today’s deals have totally blown me away! I could never have envisaged such personnel arriving and even getting Mulgrew to sign for Fleetwood! I’ m sure every club wants to strengthen during the window but I can’t think of another club in our league who has done as well as us. Time for a little bet on the top 6 at least.

    Cardiff (H) - Saturday 3rd October 2020

    I think it’s unfair to call it a “poor performance”, Rev. I thought we played some good stuff at times against a very competitive Cardiff side. A draw was the least we deserved and I still have high hopes for the season ahead. I think in Kaminski and Ayala we have a lot of experience at the back to allow our talented youngsters to showcase their skills.

    We played well in spells today but our finishing was poor. Armstrong should have scored, Gallagher and Rothwell too. Not too disheartened.

    Just seen that the Issa brothers from Blackburn have bought Asda from Walmart. It’s a new name to me but I wondered if they support the Rovers? Could have a chat with the Venkys!

    He’s actually the team captain tonight! They are currently winning.

    Derby V Rovers

    Excellent post. In agreement with all of that. For supporters of a certain age could Dolan be the modern Bryan Douglas? It was amazing watching his movement and quick feet. I think he’s probably quicker than Dougie. What an asset we’ve got! I hope we can maintain that intensity throughout the season because it’s thrilling to watch. I’m glad Bell had a better game but what about the gloves! In September?

    Can’t wait to see Cunningham v Dolan next week! Who’ll come out on top? Unless he’s signed for us in the meantime.
