    Premier League Stuff

    Chris Kamara is a guest for some rugby league game tonight, on Sky Sports. Sky are obviously panicking....

    Football League Suspended

    Whilst I agree with FFP being unfair, I couldn’t disagree more about clubs not being bailed out- look at all of League 2 and 1, bar a few cases, there is absolutely no one going to come in and throw money at those clubs because it makes absolutely no financial sense. There could well be some fan owners be willing to chuck money like it’s no object, but you’re not seriously suggesting 71 millionaires/ billionaires, who each support a different club, in The Football League are you? There wasn’t before FFP was introduced and with the current impending economic crisis, if FFP was scrapped, there sure won’t be now. This is serious- clubs outside the top flight are in trouble if this season isn’t finished.

    I can’t see this happening. My understanding is he drives to and from his family home everyday. Add to the fact he’s already managed up there and has- at this moment- an outside chance of managing in the top flight with us next year, surely it’s no go. Mowbray has a lot to thank us for too- his managerial career was pretty much finished until we took him on. I remember my Bolton mate laughing his head off, when he took over from Coyle...

    Interesting tweets (more available if clicked on) about PNE’s finances. They owe Trevor Hemmings a total of £47 million.

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    Unreal the position we’re in considering the list injuries we have. Mowbray has been forced to stop mixing the team up though because of it, so maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. Next week’s the big one. If we win, I’ll start getting excited.

    Would you sign Christian Walton

    Yes but needs to work with a decent goalkeeping coach, who’s played the game.

    Rovers v Hull

    What do you expect with all the injuries? Our budget isn’t exactly massive if you compare it to others too. Opted for the radio and the fire tonight after a long day at work, rather than freezing at Ewood- we sound well on top, but unable to convert a chance.

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    No, and nor was I expecting us to this year. Before the season started, I’d have happily taken a top half finish this year, and I stand by that.

    Supporters Consultation Meeting

    Tell them to get rid of the bloody goal music, and put the away fans back downstairs. Both have killed off an atmosphere which had improved.

    Preston (home)

    Completely disagree- they’re insignificant to us because of the hatred we have towards Burnley. The 6 fingered lot are the only rivals for me. A couple of decent seasons this decade is nothing over time, and the support we have in west Lancashire tells you that. Preston spent years floating around Division 3 and 4, whilst we were playing our football at the top level.

    Brum FA Cup

    I can’t see it making a blind but if difference with the keeping coach we’ve got.

    Brum FA Cup

    Couldn’t agree more- he should be nowhere near the club. Just look at the mistake below. I’ll be blunt though- Walton is just as bad for mistakes. The question is- why haven’t we got a proper, experienced ex-professional goalkeeping the coach? It’s simply unacceptable in my eyes.

    Millwall 3-1 Luton Mahoney’s just scored a cracker and then assisted the third, with an absolutely beauty of a cross. They look like the dark horses for the play offs to me.
  14. My thoughts exactly last night. However, when you look who’s around us: Sheff Weds- bang average from the games I’ve seen on Sky, and were nothing special when at Ewood. Preston- didn’t turn up for 45 minutes against us. Brentford- did very little until the last 10 minutes at Ewood. Bristol City- bang average against us, from what I heard on Radio Lancs. Notts Forest- nothing special, and didn’t get out their own half, in the second half, at Ewood Swansea- probably the best side we’ve played, out of this list? They sounded well on top on Radio Lancs, but didn’t win. The top 6 is there for the taking this year.
  15. Sorry, but that is absolute dross. To start with, say that Elliott Bennett should have been in the starting 11 tonight is utterly ridiculous- the man is a complete and utter liability. Then, to suggest Danny Graham’s legs have gone, despite the fact there’s been a massive improvement in results, since his return to the starting 11, is nothing short of laughable. So, to summarise, you want to take our most physical player out- Danny Graham- because his legs have gone. Then, you want to bring in Elliott Bennett who is apparently physical, despite the fact- from what I’ve seen in every game this season- his legs have gone. Elliott Bennett over Bradley Dack? Sam Gallagher over Danny Graham (I’m guessing?), despite the fact he can’t hold a ball up? ... and to top it all off, I’m guessing Richie Smallwood over Adam Armstrong, because he gets stuck in? What have I just read?! 🙃
