    Rovers Close to Agreeing Armstrong Deal
  5. Tony's Transfer Record

    Yes agree. The summary of transfers is fair. I would hope that likes of Whittingham step it up in the second half of the season as he should with his experience be able to better handle the pressure situation of chasing promotion particularly if we have to try and go up via the playoffs.
  6. Tony's Transfer Record

    The only matrix I am using for judging Mowbray is what happens at the end of the season. If we achieve promotion then he has succeeded and should continue. If we fail to achieve promotion then he has failed and should be resign/be sacked.=
  7. Downing Signs Permanent Deal

    Paul Downing has signed a permanent deal which will keep at Rovers until June 2019 with the options of a further 12 months. The 26 year old defender joined Rovers in August on loan and after some impressive performances Rovers have decided to sign him on a permanent basis. Talking to the club's official website Downing said "It’s a great feeling," I’m over the moon for it to all get signed."It gives me and the club some stability moving forward and I’m hoping for many successful times in the future. "It's one of the easiest decisions I’ve made. Ever since I signed on deadline day, it’s been an aspiration of mine to try and make it permanent."I’ve said many times how much I’ve enjoyed my time here so far and I just wanted that to continue, and I’m delighted it will do now. "I’ve been pleased to play as many games as I have and to have an impact on the team and to help them on a Saturday."There’s a long way to go for me, I still feel there’s a lot of improvement. "There’s a lot of competition for places here, so I can’t stop working hard and keep improving and trying to keep my place in the team." Downing added "I think it’s definitely gone above my expectations, Obviously I wanted to be at the top end of the league, like the football club did, and we’ve managed to do that. "We still want to try and get into those top two places at the end of the season, but from my point of view, personally, getting in the team, helping them win and climb up the table, everything has gone really well for me. "It did help, obviously, getting off to a good start and the fans, and your team-mates, taking to you. "Going on that run, without conceding and helping us win games, it was the perfect start for me to then kick on and carry on in the next couple of months. "It’s a great football club. The people behind the scenes and the dressing room welcomed me from day one, so I thank them for that, and the fans for how they have taken to me. "It’s been really easy to settle in, on and off the pitch, which has been a big thing in helping me to play my part." Rovers are back in action in the league as they host second place Shrewsbury Town at Ewood on Saturday.

  9. Rotherham V Rovers

    Match thread. Roversea's preview:
  10. A New Year's treat from Red Rose Rover. There is a certain inevitability at the turn of a new year, that thoughts stray to the past as well as to making resolutions regarding our future selves. Previous New Year’s Eve revelries are recalled; many times with warmth and affection for friendships lost or enduring, sometimes with occasional embarrassment; we were all young and foolish once after all. Some of us remain foolish even if youth is viewed firmly in the rear-view mirror ! As you get older, the cliché definitely holds true that policemen look younger and New Year’s Eves arrive with alarming frequency. The Millennium Bug and all the concerns that entailed seem like yesterday. In writing this column, I’ve just realised that the only time I have ever done the “London at New Year’s Eve” thing was now over 30 years ago. Alarming isn’t the word, believe me; grab it with both hands kids - this isn’t a rehearsal. Over the years, I have made so many resolutions, only to cast them aside with the enthusiasm of an angler on steroids. Fitness, weight-loss, learn an instrument, learn a language…just some of the things that I will doubtless revisit in 2018…again. However, this year, what about setting some football-related ones – much easier to keep, much more convenient to pursue, none involving fitness or diets. You’re in I presume ? Here we go then in a handy Buzzfeed* type list… (I’ll apologise now though for the lack of an accompanying gallery of tangentially related photographs which seemingly is de-rigeur for this kind of “journalism”, I use the term journalism quite incorrectly) :- 1. Visit (more of) the 92 league grounds I’ve been a football fan almost all of my life and have often thought that visiting the 92 league grounds seems like an achievable and enjoyable aspiration. I’ve been stuck round about the fifty mark of current league grounds for some time. That needs to improve, so in 2018, I plan to make it a focus of attention. In my defence, my score has been affected adversely by the fact that many of the grounds that I visited in my (relative) youth no longer exist – Burnden Park, Leeds Road, the Dell, Highfield Road just some examples. Even Morecambe have shifted grounds since I once watched a pre-season friendly at Christie Park as a teenager. Some of the teams have since dropped out of the league – Wrexham (remember Duncan McKenzie on the railings ?) Halifax Town (Easter 1974 for me), Chester City even dropped out of the league and changed grounds – but at least I did see a young Ian Rush in his only season at the club. This season has provided the opportunity to add some new ones to the portfolio – clouds, silver-linings and all that I suppose. I’ve even added one (Chesterfield’s new ground) by virtue of attending an Accrington Stanley away game, you take ‘em where you can ! 2. Watch a Scottish League Two game (preferably in a stadium not able to host international football) I tried the first part of this a few years back whilst visiting Glasgow, but then failed on the second aspect and subsequently decided it didn’t really count. The mighty Celtic were at home but perversely I decided instead to watch Queens Park take on Berwick Rangers as I thought it was likely to be a more “authentic” experience. It also meant that I could watch in relative comfort at Hampden Park after visiting the Scottish National Football Museum; which is deep in the bowels of the main stand, with a number of Rovers-related artefacts, highly recommended should you be in the area. However, I recognise that watching a fourth tier game at Hampden is far from “authentic”, so watch out Stirling Albion et al…you are on my list, why not put it on yours ? 3. Watch the 2018 World Cup without betting on an England victory I love the World Cup. The chance to see nations from the different confederations competing against each other throws up some terrific combinations - Cameroon v Argentina (1990); South Korea v Italy (2002); Germany v Brazil (2014) for instance. The only thing that takes the edge off the whole thing for me is the hype that surrounds England in the run up to a tournament. It usually lasts until the opening game and then the cries for the return of capital punishment for under-performing footballers begin. In 2014 I had the good fortune to be between jobs and thus was able to gorge myself on every single game, that’s right…the lot. It was fantastic, except for the England games, they were interminable. On the cusp of 2018, who knows what will unfold for our heroes, but whatever happens, we could resolve to take it in our strides, meeting triumph &/or disaster just the same. Or we could call for Mowbray to be sacked. Either way, have a very Happy New Year & let’s keep our fingers crossed that this time next year we can resolve to attend more Championship matches at Ewood. RED ROSE ROVER *apparently this is journalistic clickbait which entices in readers…I’m definitely old. View full article

  12. Cricket

    It is pitches like the one at MCG that will kill test cricket. No problems with a pitch assisting batsmen on days 1-3 but day 4 and day 5 it needs to start to offer assistance to the bowlers. That pitch did not offer anything to the bowlers despite them trying absolutely everything.
