    World Cup 2018

    The Beautiful Game. That was a brilliant football match. No other sport comes near it.

    I think Morocco was probably too big a risk from a security point of view, too many jihadis in N. Africa.

    World Cup 2018

    Presumably there will be 3 places for each of the hosts, all from Concacaf confederation. It’ll be interesting to see how FIFA decide which confederation loses qualifying spots. Fifa probably gave it to the US to make sure they are in the WC in 2026, not that most yanks know they aren’t even in it this time, or care.

    Premier League Stuff

    I can’t see that, if they didn’t like Allaradyce’s or Moyes’ brand of foootball they aren’t going to go for the Dyche method. 15 goals at home this season isn’t the thing those sets of fans are looking for.
  8. I agree with Bob, Walsall away. Fantastic noise from Rovers fans, a devastating first half performance and resilient second to hold on for the win. It wasn’t a must win game but it also convinced me that we had what it takes to get promoted, arte et labore in abundance and a set of fans who could push the team to keep going. Great day out!

    Premier League Stuff

    A truly terrible Premier League season, and likely to become even less competitive. The gap between the top 5/6 and the rest is massive. Every team from 7th (Burnley) down has a negative goal difference.

    Sorry to disappoint you Blueboy, I’ve never voted Tory in my life and never would, but I do believe in respecting the law.

    Why not? Too much low level crime goes unpunished.

    The bottom line is that invading a football field is illegal in England, so those who encroached are in effect criminals. Hopefully, the police will prosecute as many as possible, if only to act as a deterrent to others.

    The latent support for Blackburn Rovers is there for all to see. What a great opportunity to convince all the youngsters who will be there that the Rovers are their team, not Man Utd, Liverpool, Barcelona etc.

    The highlighted section of my post was from Gladwingone’s post, I was merely commenting on it.

    I have 2 tickets for the BBE which a friend bought me to entice me to go back. I had already told them not to but they ignored me and now I have them. I have decided that I will go down around 4:30 and give them FOC to someone queuing up to be ripped off at the ticket office. At least I can take £30 out of the hands of the Venkyscum before going home to watch the scores on the red button like I have for the past 2 years - and will be doing again next year. Would it not be fairer to give the tickets back to your friend so he/she can decide what to do with them?
