  1. New CEO at Ewood

    Blimey. I agree with Jal. 😂
  2. New CEO at Ewood

    If Nyambe isn't good enough for Rovers in the 3rd Division, hard to see him ever being so. Heard a talk from the CEO at Ewood the other week. Likeable bloke, but you have to wonder why he's ended up at all the Circus'. Spoke well, but again blotted his copy book by revealing how good the owners have been with him, and how they are determined to put things right. Is he too trusting or just brown nosing ?
  3. Wimbledon

    Admired the old Wimbledon, back in the day, they survived and thrived against the odds, with uneasy methods, at times. (BT SPORTS DOC had genuinely uncomfortable moments). They were replaced, with barely anyone caring. An outrage that deserves more inspection. Everything about MK riles me. They don't deserve their place in the Pyramid, and I wish them nothing but ill will. Lots of Wimbledon memories. Fash breaking Moran's nose. Shay Givens solitary Rovers game (where he was brilliant). Shearer's last scores at Ewood. The awful : "Great balls of fire" goal music. And, my personal favourite, Vinny Jones celebrating an Ewood abondment by diving into every pitch puddle he could find.
  4. Rovers v Burnley

    Tickets bought. I'm naming it :'The Rovers Ressaurection'. The tombstone couldn't be moved back tonight. Apart from the 1st 15 mins, we looked well below. We played some wretched stuff. We lacked, sharpness, spirit, devilment. All this against a bang average side, intent on hoofing the ball. They were playing a game of 'the pitch is Lava.' They will be relegated come May, so we can all rejoice in that. Mr Mowbray has plummeted from his pedistal. He chose not to play his strongest side tonight, again he didn't grasp it's importance to all of us. A couple of players shone, Bennett, Samuel, and Chapman. Smallwood will be brilliant with a decent partner. The rest of them, looked weak in every way. Raya deserved his Man of the match (even though his kicking lacks power and direction).
  5. 4 at the back, instead of 3.
  6. Rovers v Burnley

    Gav might be picking Flowers for the social side of his team. Brad is a dullard, whereas Flowers is a character
  7. Rovers v Burnley

    Nothing compared to a proper firm. I knew someone who was in the young suicide squad, though. Nasty sods them, and one very tragic incident (death of a Forest fan).
  8. Rovers v Burnley

    No Danny (I've won the Prem) Simpson ? Makes you weep looking at some of our star players and their standing in the game, to where we are now.
  9. Rovers v Burnley

    Make no mistake, if we beat them, be that by skill or a fluke, it will be the best victory over them in our history. My 1st Ewood game since a self imposed exhile and I cannot wait.
  10. Jordan aka Orville

    Many a good chat / drink with Jordan over the years. Glad to hear he's doing well.
  11. Rovers v Burnley

    Tickets bought. I'm naming it : 'The Rovers Resurrection'
  12. Bradford City V Rovers

    Uh, oh. You've sewn a seed there 🤣
  13. Rovers v Doncaster Rovers

    Mine was an obvious statement. But one many people on here are blind to.
  14. Bradford City V Rovers

    Was gonna go, but the ex is still living in Bradford. 😛 The combination of bathing in booze, coupled with the likeliest defeats might have tipped me over the edge and I'd likely have ended up on her doorstep. 😂
