    Preston (home)

    I worked in both Chorley and Preston in the mid to late 80s. There were plenty of Rovers fans over that way (Chorley/Leyland/Bamber Bridge/Preston) well before we returned to the top flight. It’s always been like that and just the way it is.

    Huddersfield Town 29.12.19

    I said to my lad after the Wigan game that I could sense a poor run coming. I also had the misfortune (ie. a reality check) in watching a social media clip from the club, showing us hammering someone in the Souness promotion season. Jansen was finishing a sublime move by putting it where it matters. That team would knock half a dozen past our current one without breaking sweat. We are probably six quality players short of a squad that could really make the playoffs. Of our present lot, probably only two would make the running for the Souness team. One is a Man City player and one is out for the best part of a year. That is our ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ moment as to where we are. Not only do we need further, substantial investment from our owners (never gonna happen), we need a new manager who knows what he is doing.

    Premier League Stuff

    I’ve said this many times but the powers that be have made (and continue to make) a simple game very complicated. Get all the rules, from how you kick off, to goal kicks, to offside and all the other needless meddlings exactly how they were fifty years ago. Bin VAR.

    General Election 2019

    Fair enough. I don’t know anything about him, so just wondered what others thought.

    Thanks for that Gav.

    General Election 2019

    One politician that I thought came across very well in a few interviews I saw was Barry Gardiner, the Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade. In his discussions with Andrew Neil, he seemed very informed, spoke well and certainly wasn’t bullied by his interviewer. I’m not too well up on politics but wondered what any Labour supporters’ views were on him, with regard to perhaps being a suitable candidate for future leader of the Labour Party.

    Premier League Stuff

    Leicester are a joy to watch, just gone two up at Villa. They can play the backwards-sideways-backwards bullsh!t when they have to but they like to get forwards quickly and have pace to burn. Wish all teams would play their way.

    Club merchandise

    I used to spend shed loads in the club shop each year. T-shirt, polo shirt, sweatshirt, Winter coat, scarf, bob hat, replica shirts, season tickets (mine, my lads and twice for my daughter), beach towel plus other bits and pieces. Initially it was decent, well made stuff. The t-shirts and polo shirts were especially good with a great club crest. At one point, the club lost the plot and most of the stuff became just sports wear with very few Rovers branded items. After a couple of years, if I remember correctly, they then saw sense and normal service was resumed. I haven’t bought anything for years. I tend to buy the odd bit of Wigan Warriors stuff these days and, to be honest, I find their club shop clothing to be dull, drab and not of the best quality.

    Who would we like to get in the FA cup draw?

    Would have liked Man Utd at Ewood. Think we could have given them a scare.

    Who would we like to get in the FA cup draw?

    How close was that to Rovers v Dingles?

    Stoke v Rovers Nov 30

    Well done lads. I’ve knocked both TM and SG recently, so credit now where it’s due. Keep it up and let’s see where it gets us. Three quality signings in January - keeper, centre half and striker - and we could be knocking on the door of promotion. If only Venky’s could be convinced of our position, if only they could be persuaded to invest in the club’s future, they could then be closer to the Holy Grail than they possibly realise. (I know in the real world, it’s not gonna happen before anyone tells me but I like to dream)

    General Election 2019

    This made me laugh. I generally keep well out of politics but I have to say that I can’t stand the ‘scruffy prick.’ He is as far removed from the likes of us that any person could possibly be. I know that he is well qualified academically but when you would expect him to come across as a confident and articulate leader, what you actually get is a dithering, lying, cowardly buffoon. I wouldn’t vote for either him or his party in a million years.

    Blues Bar

    The John Lewis Suite was open during the week prior to the ground redevelopment, Matt. When I worked in Blackburn, me and the Mrs went for our dinner one day and I was delighted to see Kenny and all the players in there for their mid day meal. I remember, the bar man was temporarily away from the bar and Shearer, fed up of waiting, got up and poured himself a pint. The food was good as well.

    Quite agree, TS.
