    Summer Transfer Window

    Dear me... I can still remember some of the comments on here when we’d beaten a really poor Liverpool team in one of Kean’s first Matches at Ewood. Revidge sidled in and admitted to being somewhat ‘smug’ that evening... fucking great is hindsight, isn’t it 😂

    Summer Transfer Window

    Both re-writing history if you ask me. The Walker family had long since lost interest in the club and had been looking for a buyer for ages... They were a relatively small fish in an increasingly big pond, financially speaking. Combine that with none of JWs kids having the least bit interest in football, and there’s only one way it’s heading. Allardyce’ last transfer window consisted of Benjani on a free and Mame Diouf on loan. Zero spent. They’d well and truly pulled the purse strings shut. Amazingly enough, a considerable proportion of the fan base still believe it was the right decision to sack him.... even now!! It is the ones who don’t know anything about football and/or are too stubborn to admit they were totally and utterly wrong, but they’re usually the most vocal at any club it would seem. Anyway, it was unsustainable under the Walkers.... their interest was gone. Venky’s stupidity, naivety, Pig-headedness and misplaced trust in a scam artist accelerated the process and let it totally spin out of control, but let’s not pretend the future was particularly rosy for BRFC. Throwing away PL status was unforgivable and extremely expensive. Thinking with a long-head, we should be (for want of a million better words) thankful that as of yet, they haven’t just up and left a carcass..... should we forgive what happened? Not whilst our club remains perilously close to oblivion BECAUSE of the Owners.

    Mowbray’s Future

    Sadly with Dyche solidifying the Dingles in the Prem and thus pocketing another £200m and us only heading one way for 7 years, his statement there is becoming more and more redundant by the season. Burnley have just spent £13m on a player - we've spent 250k in about 4 windows. What determines the size of a club?.... the history, the fanbase? For me, neither - in the modern day it's the finances, and Burnley are streets ahead of us now.

    Mowbray’s Future

    Yet we've never really been battered in a game since about August. Our defeats have been the result of shocking defending and poor individual mistakes (at the risk of sounding like Coyle). We rarely get absolutely outplayed and in recent weeks have stood toe to toe with sides like Leeds and Sheff Wed and should have taken at least a point in both. Mowbray's job for the next 15 games is to win clean sheets. That's the base of any side in a relegation battle - Look at someone like Allardyce or Pulis - their first job is to win clean sheets and then take your opportunities as they come at the other end. We've got players who are capable of scoring goals so that's a great start that many, many relegation threatened sides don't have. I feel like a lot hinges on tomorrow - defeat and all of a sudden Burton are 9 points ahead of us and that almost feels like another that we've let free from the pack. A win means it's absolutely all to play for with Wigan just around the corner. I can't imagine anyone on this message board sat at home on Tuesday night and singled out Mowbray as their first choice, but the more it sinks in and the more the initial shock wears off, the slightly more confident I become that he can just scramble enough points to keep us up this season. It's all we as fans can focus on for now - next season will have it's own obstacles; let's just hope it's in the bloody Championship!
  5. I won't support Coyle as manager of BRFC when there is such a clear connection between him and You Know Who every which way we turn. This feels more and more like a return to the darkest days under Kean et al. The worst thing is, people that don't go on this site and read this very interesting information have absolutely no idea that this goes on. They just think people don't like Coyle because he was at Burnley... it's frightening really. Depressed isn't the word at this point EDIT: http://www.littletonchambers.com/john-mehrzad-acts-for-kean-in-allardyce-v-kean-and-blackburn-rovers-case-398/ His name appears more and more.... EDIT EDIT: He represented BRFC over the Berg settlement http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2298536/Henning-Bergs-High-Court-date-Blackburn-compensation-claim-delayed.html

    Strange that Gav hasn't posted in this thread recently! Him and countless others were told and better told to no avail

    Someone else I can think of was a coach before he was inexplicably promoted to Manager/Chairman/Finance Director/ Chief fanbase provoker/ Head of Madame Desai manipulation. Haven't you heard of mutiny Lh? First infiltrate ranks.

    Who would you prefer him to have a direct line to? The hapless Derek Shaw? Shebby? We don't have anyone senior at the club. We just hope and pray that GB is as honest as he seems. More chance of that than a competent board be put in place, capable of forging a good relationship with the owners and ultimately leaving GB to do what his title suggests...

    I agree with this. It's very difficult to work with owners who you can't get on with. Would you prefer Bowyer to sit in Blackburn cursing the owners like we do? He has to forge a relationship with them, end of. One thing I would say is that flying over to Pune is IMO absolutely bloody ridiculous and not the way any normal business would be run. But if it's his best way of getting through to the owners then what other alternative. Don't we all have to have a relationship with our seniors? We might not always agree with them, but ultimately you don't bite the hand that feeds you. As long as Bowyer is not manipulating his relationship with the owners to the detriment of BRFC then I don't have an issue with a good relationship. The problem you may have is that if/when things begin to go tits up, would his relationship then stand in the way of his removal? I would stress also that if things started to happen which Bowyer was unhappy about, or undermined his position in any way, I would then expect him to begin asking questions. Mind you, look at Mackay - he certainly seems to know who pays his wages. I STRESS: A relationship is only positive if GB has the best interests of BRFC at heart. If he doesn't, then God help us.

    [Archived] News Article -> Rovers v Palace

    You may note TJ that Zaha had a relatively lively first half, often beating Morris or cutting inside on the edge of the penalty area. The HT change that saw Pedersen come on meant that they doubled up and kept him quiet. Morris should donate his Peter Jackson watch to Ped as he provided excellent cover and allowed him to bomb on. Furthermore Pedersen on numerous occasions played it nice and simple, with nicely weighted passes allowing King/Morris the opportunity to cross (albeit poorly). It's very easy to dismiss Pedersen nowadays but if you watch his work and positional play off the ball, he can still offer a lot to the squad. Shame he is most people's scapegoat, most unfair.
