    The sad passing of "Kelbo".

    This is Kelvins son Ben, struggling to sleep, so i thought i'd read through this to reassure me how proud i am to have had a father like mine. The support from my friends and family can only be backed up by this, but i thank every single one of you for your posts, they mean the world to me, and when the time is right, my mum too. I want to share with you something that reminds me of my dad... it's a song, but will remind me of him forever.

    Hughes told Sav to win it and give it to someone who could play!! IE Tugay. We now have a bit of balance in midfield, now a striker, player with pace and a defender and we should have a decent squad, the downside is Kean, but is he still the manager other than by name???

    Partnerships in midfield are most important, like strikers and Central defenders, you work together, over the years, Metcalfe/Parkes, Tugay/Savage, Sherwood/Atko etc were great instances of this!! Trying to remember who played in centre mid with Kendall, McKenzie was in a more advanced role I think? Help!!

    [Archived] Never Mind Sacked!

    This is why I do believe ex players should be fast tracked to ref at proffessional level, at 30 to 35, these players are fit, fitter than most refs, would keep up with the game (which is half the battle)and would be aware of all the tricks of the trade from their experience in the game, as ex players, there would be a mutual respect, not all players would take this route but there would be a few journeyman players who would and this would be to the benefit of the game for at the moment, I am seeing some extremely poor refereeing performances, I know its a difficult job but they are now well paid and should get most decisions correct.

    Gary Speed

    Rover, and on here I dont mind sharing, many years ago, my marriage broke down and I was divorced, whatever the reason, you feel a failure and become depressed, your sense of humour is not how it was, everyone seems to be looking at you, talking about you and you are really down. I went into Town one day to take a package from work, I passed a young girl, 20 tops, in a wheelchair, no legs, laughing and joking with friends, she looked vibrant, happy and enjoying her day, that changed my mindset completely, there are always people worse off than yourself, happier times are round the corner, they were for me and will be for you, if you ever need to talk mate, PM me, it will go no further and I am, as are many on this messageboard, here for you should you need me.

    Gary Speed

    The biggest accolade I can give Gary Speed is this, scored loads of goals from midfield and never did I see the guy antagonise opposing supporters, thats why so many people from clubs throughout the UK have posted and sent their condolences and sadness at his passing, a true gentleman and great player, you will be sadly missed throughout football! PS: Just heard that Sam is absolutely gutted with the news!

    Just got a longing for fish and chips in a bag, not these trays they have now, can you still get them or have health and safety banned them?

    Ruben Rochina Signs

    I hope he does, he is some player and feel he will be great player for us, his goals against Man U in the reserves Final were outstanding!!

    Anyone else hear that Rochina is homesick??

    Ruben Rochina Signs

    One or two Man U staff interested in our Ruben, by far the most talented player on view, including Rafael, Fletcher, Oberton etc. This lad can really play, he for me has a bit of everything and I really think he is going to the very top!

    Ruben Rochina Signs

    Options, he held on as he had no real options, our movement off the ball was poor and he really had no available options, good movement off the ball would have opened Everton up!!

    Ruben Rochina Signs

    Rochina is thinking far more quickly than the others, he would play well with Kalinic!

    Blackburn Rovers 3-2 Burnley

    I was on Turf Moor as a kid, Rovers were 3 - 0 down in the FA Cup, remember saying to my dad, we wont lose dad, we drew 3 - 3 won the replay 2 - 0 at Ewood, happy days Still remember the ball bouncing up onto Alex Elders arm, ref gave a pen and Douglas scored, think Mick Mcgrath got the equaliser, went to Maine Road for the semis and couldnt get a ticket for the final!!!

    Ruben Rochina Signs

    My lads watched his well taken goal on the big screen at the game and tell me he has a really good touch, lots of quick little flicks etc. If he from Barca we will have a chance with him, as long as Kean doesnt spoil him, we really need to up the ante coaching wise, we are really thin on the ground and if the gameplan is to develop young players, we simply must invest in a couple of top coaches.

    I would in all fairness disagree, indeed many modern Theologists believe that it is not to mourn a death but to celebrate the life of the deceased, I am inclined to agree but that is a personal opinion.

    Ronnie Clayton

    Dougie was quicker than Matthews until that bugger from Leeds United 'did' him right in front of the tunnel at Ewood, took a full yard of pace out of his game!!

    Ronnie Clayton

    I had the prevelige of seeing him play, could tackle, head, pass and read the game so well, a top bloke, a true Rover who will be missed but never forgotten, the world will be a sadder place without him! RIP Ronnie
