  1. Blackburn Rovers are back in action after the completion of the International break. Heading to Ewood Park to take on the mighty blue and white will be Aston Villa. Rovers come into this match after a bit of beating by Bristol City in the last match after Blackburn lost 4-1. Villa on the other hand come into this match in similar form, as they too lost their last match 4-1 against Sheffield United. Rovers will hope to have a few key players back for this one, with Bradley Dack returning from injury and we could see a full debut from new boy Ben Brereton. Please like, share and subscribe.

  2. Championship Trivia (Data from whoscored.com) 1. 1. Who are our three best rated players so far (out of 320 Championship players overall)? 2. And the 3 worst? 3. Who is the only Rover to have 2 Man of the Match awards so far? 4. Leeds has the highest pass success rate of 79%. Where do you think we stand? 5. Who do you think our best passer is? (Hint 85.2% success.) 6. We come first in the “number of long balls per game” ratings. How many on average? 7. I remember doing one of these trivia things pre-Mowbray; we came bottom in the tackling department. Today we’re second! How many per game on average? 8. Who is our only player in the Championship Team of the Season so far? Answers 1. 18th Mulgrew 7.4, 22nd Lenihan 7.37, 73rd Bell. (Note Dack 7.03 hasn’t played enough games to be included). 2. 307th Nuttall 6.15, 292nd Armstrong 6.27, 225th Nyambe 6.53. 3. Lenihan 4. 19th 67.9% 5. Dack 6. 87………………good grief nearly one per minute! 7. 20.7 8. Mulgrew
  3. An assessment of player performance v Bristol City Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellent play * Instance of decent/good play * Instance of disappointing/poor play * Instance of terrible play * E&OE Ratings Raya **** **** ** * Nyambe(65) * ******* * ** Lenihan **************** ******* * Mulgrew ** ******* ** ** Bell *************** ****** *** Smallwood *********** ********* Evans(76) ******** ****** Bennett * ********** ******** Palmer(71) ****** **** Armstrong * ***** ******** * Graham(55) ****** Brereton(55) * * Rothwell(65) * ** Nuttall(71) * * Highlights and Lowlights (A justification for the main ratings above) 6. Bennett on one of his chases manages to charge down the goalie’s attempt at a clearance. Goalkick. 8. Hunt goes past Bell easily and Smallwood is slow to close him down. His shot is well saved by Raya. The ball comes back towards the goal and Mulgrew is perfectly placed to head clear as the City man looked to score. Bennett is bamboozled by a short corner but the dangerous move fizzles out. 10. Eliasson leaves Nyambe for dead and his cross is perfect for Weimann but Raya makes a wonderful save at point-blank range. 12. Armstrong fires a decent shot from outside the box but it’s deflected for a corner. Mulgrew takes it and the ball fools everyone and nestles in the net. 15. Rush of blood for Raya who comes charging out of his area but his clearance goes straight to a City man. Fortunately his ball forward catches City offside. 17. Bell sells himself completely in an aerial challenge but he chases back and recovers - then his backpass to Raya is dangerous and causes panic! 18. Armstrong receives the ball in a very tight position but he controls beautifully and lay off a good pass. 19. Persistent Armstrong challenge causes the City man to kick the ball out of play. 22. Terrible misjudgment by Mulgrew who allows the ball to bounce over his head. Fortunately the whistle blows! 25. Palmer does well to chase down a ball into the box but he hits the bar when it seemed easier to score! 36. Difficult to see on my feed but Nyambe fouls the City man in the D. It looked harsh. Brownhill smashes the freekick into the top corner. Not sure Raya could have done better. 39. Graham plays a lovely ball through to Armstrong who is one on one with the goalie. But his shot hits the goalie’s legs. It should have been a goal. This is the third time Armstrong’s shots have been blocked by the man directly in front of him. 42. Bell and Palmer are bypassed too easily and the City cross hits the crossbar! 43. Smallwood and Evans are both bamboozled but fortunately the attacker’s shot is weak. 47. Nyambe’s lazy, attempted clearance is blocked. Fortunately Lenihan clears up. 49. For the second time Nyambe shepherds the ball out for a goal kick. Impressive shielding technique. 50. An impressive attack by City; Lenihan is slow to react (not the only one) and Raya pulls out another good save. Nyambe and Lenihan clear up. 54. Eliasson glides past Bell easily, Palmer is a spectator and Lenihan fails to deal with the cross. Mulgrew is marking no one. Watkins scores. 72. Rovers have put Nuttall on to boost the attack but the strategy fails. Smallwood and Nuttall tangle in the City D and the ball is fired forward leaving 2 on 2. Lenihan makes a poor do of challenging Diedhiou who finds the net. 74. O’Dowda cuts inside Bell (very similar to Watkins in the last game!) but his shot is off target. 78. Good driving run by Rothwell but his final shot is weak and wide. 79. Armstrong is dispossessed on the wing. Bennett pushes the City player and gives a foul. 81. Yet another City corner. Raya gets a decent punch under pressure. Nuttall heads it straight back to the corner taker. When the cross comes in it grazes Lenihans head (not for the first time!) and Pack heads into the net. Too easy! 82. Excellent driving run and lay-off by Rothwell. Bennett’s cross is disappointing. 84. Lenihan and Bell fail to clear the ball allowing a cross into the box. Fortunately Lenihan is well positioned this time and clears. 84. Rothwell drives forward again and sends Brereton haring down the wing. He gets in a decent cross but nobody’s there. 85. AND AGAIN the winger cuts inside Bell and unleashes a shot. Raya makes a decent save. 86. Smallwood and Evans come second in the midfield battle, the City players waltz through our box and a neat backheel nearly results in a goal but Raya saves. From the corner, Mulgrew is beaten to the ball on the near post. The flicked header is plucked from the air by Raya……..could have been City’s sixth!! 88. Long ball from Evans is neatly kept in by Brereton but Nuttall can’t get there.
  4. Sorry if you just opened this! Error on my part. I was just practising formatting! This is the second game I missed while on holiday. I couldn’t leave it out! An assessment of player performance v Reading Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellent play * Instance of decent/good play * Instance of disappointing/poor play * Instance of terrible play * E&OE Ratings Raya * * * * Nyambe **** ****** **** * Lenihan ************ *********** ** Mulgrew ** ********* *** *** Bell * ******* ***** * Smallwood(45) * ******* **** Evans(76) * ****** **** Bennett *** ************* *** Rothwell *** *********** Armstrong(44) *** ** Graham ****** **** ** Conway(44) * *** * Samuel(45)(70) * **** * Nuttall(70) ***** ***** Highlights and Lowlights (A justification for the main ratings above) 5. Bennett gathers the ball on the wing; Rothwell screams for the ball. Bennett squares the ball just outside the box and Rothwell hits the post. He smashes the rebound over the stand. 9. Tenacious work by Smallwood wins the ball and allows Armstrong to drive to the edge of the box where he unleashes a shot which the goalie does well to tip round the post. Graham gives the goalie a high-five! 11. Lenihan allows a long ball to bounce off his head and into the box. Raya is slow to get there and Reading score. 17. Lenihan loses out to Baldock who drives into the box. Nyambe seems scared to challenge and Mulgrew’s attempt is powderpuff! The ball bounces around and Lenihan finally clears. 24. Nyambe is out of position and a cross come in from the right. Lenihan and Mulgrew are missing and the Reading man has a free header. Raya makes a great save but the ball falls to Bodvarsson again for a tap in. 38. Bennett wins the ball and feeds Armstrong who charges towards goal. He is tackled and the ball reaches Rothwell who’s powerful drive is bravely headed over by Moore. Close! 45+1 Conway’s corner is poor but the ball eventually finds Smallwood who loops the ball back into the box where Lenihan heads it tamely to the goalkeeper. He could have headed back across goal where Graham was waiting. 46. Good chase back by Nyambe to win the ball from a Reading man in a dangerous position. 46. Evans wins the ball and chases it to the goal line where he does well to win a corner. 50. Bell slides a ball into the box and Bennett makes a beautiful run. He is brought down. Penalty! Mulgrew smashes it into the centre of the net. 60. Bell allows the winger acres of room to get his cross in but Nyambe makes a goal saving challenge. 61. Samuel in the D lobs a neat ball for Graham to run on to but it’s tight and he flicks over the top. He’s offside anyway. 74. High ball into the box by Nyambe is won by Nuttall under challenge by the goalie. The goalie is out of position and Bennett pops the ball towards goal; the defender, on his knees, saves with his body. Nuttall tries to follow up but he’s a whisker away. 74. Conway takes the resulting corner and Lenihan and Mulgrew challenge. The ball drops to the ground and in the resulting scramble Mulgrew is felled. Another penalty! This time Mulgrew stutters and curls it inside the left hand post. 77. Beautiful curling ball by Nyambe into the box for Bennett to chase, he crosses to Graham but his header is a bit disappointing. 81. Sloppy play from both sides ends up with a dangerous cross into the box. Nyambe clears up nicely. 83. Rothwell slips a lovely ball through to Bennett who lays it off to Conway. His cross is headed just over the bar by Nuttall. Hmm! should he have done better? Probably. 83. Mulgrew messes up his headed clearance in the D….it hits McNulty who gets in a shot but it’s wide. Mulgrew is claiming the ball hit the attackers’s hand. (True!) 90+5 Rovers trying to exert pressure. The ball comes to Nyambe on the wing, he miscontrols and Reading attack. It’s dangerous but Nyambe hares back to put a foot in!

  5. I am pleased a few people showed interest in my last post so I was motivated to watch the Hull game for the first time. (I’ve been on holiday for 2 weeks). An assessment of player performance v Hull Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellent play * Instance of decent/good play * Instance of disappointing/poor play * Instance of terrible play * E&OE Ratings Raya * *** Nyambe * ******* **** Lenihan * *************** *** Mulgrew ***** *** Bell * ********** ****** Smallwood *** ****** * Evans(76) ** ********** * Bennett * ***** *** ** Dack(58) **** **** * Palmer(65) * ******** ** Armstrong(77) ** ****** ** ** Graham(58) ******** *** Travis(65) ***** ** Rothwell(77) * Highlights and Lowlights (A justification for the main ratings above) 1. Lovely ball from Dack to Armstrong 7. Dack slides a great ball through for Armstrong who should have scored. 12. Nice footwork from Palmer as he slides the ball into the box for Dack who wriggles past 2 defenders but the goalie goes down quickly to make the save. 17. A lovely run down the wing by Bell but his low cross is blocked. 18. A loose pass by Bell makes it difficult for Dack to control. Hull gather and attack, Evans slides in to avert the danger. 34. Smallwood decides to pass instead of shoot when directly in front of goal. Poor decision. 36. Bell throws directly to a Hull man……fortunately he miscontrols! 41. Armstrong slides a lovely ball to Bennett on the wing; he crosses perfectly into the path of the on-rushing Dack. 1-0, great move! 53. Nyambe wins an important tackle on the edge of the box and clears downfield. 59. An air-kick by Bennett in the box as a free kick comes in. Fortunately Raya collects. 62. Nyambe chases a lost cause to the touchline and manages to cross to Graham. The ball falls to Armstrong in front of goal. He swings and misses completely! 70. Bell wins the ball, Evans lays off a lovely ball to Armstrong who in his usual, single-minded way charges towards goal. The ball bounces off the goalies legs to the fast closing Bennett who somehow manages to put the ball past the post! How did he miss? 79. Lenihan heads Evan’s cross back into the box. Graham does well to get in a header but it’s straight at the goalie. 80. Evans wins the ball on the edge of the box and feeds Graham who scuffs his shot. 86. A Hull corner sees MacDonald beat Bell to the header which brings out a wonderful reflex save from Raya. Unbelievable! 2 points saved!
  6. Bristol City vs Blackburn Rovers, 02/09/18, 1.30pm, Ashton Gate. Following a win against Lincoln City in the League Cup last night and the unveiling of the worst kept secret in football in Ben Brereton finally signing, we take the hellishly long journey to the South West of the country and head to Bristol City for a slightly re-arranged league game. Rumour has it, it has been moved due to a music festival on the Saturday. As something of a music fan myself, it’s not something I can particularly complain about, particularly as I won’t be attending the match either….. In any event, it’s on Sunday at 1.30pm and if you’re departing from anywhere other than the South West of the country, the smart bet seems to be allowing plenty of time. So, what do we know about Bristol? Apart from it being incredibly far away from our East Lancashire home? Well, I know that some good music has prospered from a strong scene there in the past. What the media dubbed as ‘trip-hop’, with acts such as Massive Attack, Tricky, Portishead (okay, they’re from the nearby town Portishead, but they made their name in Bristol, so allow it) were all pioneers of the so-called ‘Bristol Sound’, made popular in the early-mid ‘90s. It has also been something of a hotbed for drum ‘n’ bass and jungle, with acts such as Roni Size, Bad Company UK, Loadstar, DJ Krust, DJ Die, Danny Byrd and TC all hailing from the City (or at least nearby). Electronic music producers such as: Propellerheads, Phaeleh, Nick Warren, all come from Bristol as well. Cider is also very popular in this region of the country, with several specialist cider bars and therefore plenty of options, should you want to wet your whistle pre-match! Also, how could we forget, the former Lancashire Telegraph Correspondent Andy Cryer, who seemed to do a complete 180 on his feelings re Rovers, once he left the publication. (A Rover never forgets Andrew, FYI.) Bristol has also been well-known for its graffiti scene and it is believed to be home to Banksy. This belief was further reinforced by the opening of a Banksy theme park ‘Dismaland’ in 2015. Banksy has admitted he was heavily influenced by artist ‘3D’ aka Robert Del Naja (of Massive Attack). In addition to this, there had been rumours that Del Naja was in fact Banksy, thanks to the loose lips of Jungle/drum ‘n’ bass pioneer Goldie. However, these rumours have never been officially confirmed. A little bit about our opponents Formed in 1894, initially as Bristol South End, once they turned professional three years later, they changed their name to Bristol City. The club have played at Ashton Gate, since a move from their original home of St John’s Lane in 1904. In 1900, they merged with then rivals Bedminster FC and joined the Football League a year later, becoming only the third Southern team after Woolwich Arsenal, (now just Arsenal and located in Islington, North London) and Luton Town to join the competition. In their first league game, they saw off our Lancashire neighbours Blackpool 1-0 at Bloomfield Road. Fast forward to 1905-06 and they won the Second Division Championship, becoming the first team to win 30 out of 38 games played, as well as equalling Manchester United’s record of 14 consecutive wins, a record which stood until this year. They finished as runners up in their first season in the top flight, but by 1910-11, they suffered their first ever relegation. It would be 65 years before they eventually returned to the top flight. City would then go on to have a long stay in the second tier, before a ‘yo-yo’ period between the second and third divisions until they ultimately made their return to the top flight in 1976. However, between 1980 and 1982, there was a decline on and off the pitch and City ended up in the fourth division. Once the club eventually returned to the second tier in 1990, the club has been in the second and third divisions quite a lot since then. However, since 2015, the club has been in The Championship. The club’s main rivals are Bristol Rovers and Cardiff City. With whom they contest the Bristol and Severnside Derbies, respectively. The club are currently managed by Lee Johnson (son of former manager, Gary) and have been since 2016. Average attendances The club averages around 20,000 per week, which you’d expect from a City club, to be fair, but it’s a good number for a second-tier club in any event! The club draws support from Bristol and across the South West. Famous fans Tony Robinson Marcus Trescothick Jonathan Pearce Robert Del Naja John Cleese Justin Lee Collins Richard Scudamore Jenson Button Head to Head Overall They’ve just about got the edge over us, with 17 wins to our 14, with 11 draws. Played for both (A selection) Frank Fielding Keith Fear Andy Cole Bradley Orr Derrick Williams Elliott Bennett Ben Gladwin COYB!
  7. Blackburn Rovers will go into the international break after getting thumped by Bristol City at Ashton Gate. 4-1 the final score in favour of the hosts Bristol City. The only goal coming for Rovers was scored by Charlie Mulgrew direct from a corner kick. Bristol City leveled shortly after from a free kick. In the 2nd half it was all Bristol City as they ran away with it scoring 3 more goals. Ben Brereton made is debut from the bench, to little effect. Moving forward Rovers will head back to Ewood Park to take on Aston Villa after the international break. In this video we hear from Bristol City supporter and co host on The One Stream podcast Dave Skinner about the result, plus words of wisdom from the gaffa Tony Mowbray about the result. Plus analysis and more. Bristol City: Maenpaa, Webster, Brownhill, Taylor (Diedhiou, 66), Weimann (Paterson, 84), Watkins (O'Dowda, 66), Kelly, Eliasson, Pack (c), Kalas, Hunt. Substitutes: Pisano, Da Silva, Walsh, O'Leary.

  8. An assessment of player performance v Brentford Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellent play * Instance of decent/good play * Instance of disappointing/poor play * Instance of terrible play * E&OE Ratings Raya ** *** *** Nyambe ******** ***** * Lenihan ******* * Mulgrew * ****** Bell * ************** ******* ** Smallwood ************* ** Evans(76) ******************** * Bennett **** ********** * Rothwell * ******** ******* Palmer(68) ** ********* ***** Nutall(58) **** **** Graham(58) * ********** Conway(68) *** ** Travis(76) * Highlights and Lowlights (A justification for the main ratings above) 1. Nyambe gets his foot to a ball into the box but there is a lack of control and the ball runs dangerously towards a Brentford man. Fortunately Mulgrew is alert and slides in to prevent a goal. 12. Bell attempts to break up an attack but succeeds only in passing to Forss directly in front of goal. Fortunately his shot is weak and straight at Raya. 12. Palmer slips a lovely ball inside for Nyambe to run on to but again he fails to control the ball in a promising position. 18. Yet another chase back by Bennett to win back the ball. 26. Another mis-control by Nyambe gives Brentford the ball. 31. A lethargic Bell allows the Brentford man to line up a cross. Benrahma heads on to the bar. 35. Bell is completely done over by Watkins who lets off a decent shot……just wide of the post. No sign of Rothwell either. 41 Another great chase and win by Bennett who passes forward for Rothwell to chase but it’s just too far and he’s offside anyway. 49. Fancy footwork by Palmer gets him past two defenders and into the box but his cross is weak and blocked. 52. Bell is caught out of position by a neat Brentford move which allows them to move the ball across the edge of the box. Yennaris’ shot brings a fantastic save from Raya who pushes the ball on to the bar. 53. More tigerish midfield tackling by Evans and Smallwood allows Evans to pass inside to Rothwell who plays a fantastic pass across the park to Bennett. Bennett controls beautifully but his cross into the box is not the best. However, the goalkeeper can only push the ball into the path of the on-rushing Palmer who fires home. 55. Again too much flashy stuff from Palmer. He shows a great first touch but loses the ball. 55. A rasping drive from range by Benrahma brings another wonder save from Raya……same top corner as the last one. 63. Nice to see Palmer back in our box defending today. 64. Now Palmer wins the ball in Brentford’s half but gives it away with a poor pass. 71. Tight on the touchline and facing his own goal, Bell beats his man nicely and clears upfield. Bennett still chasing everything! 73. A noticeable difference since Graham came on – he wins every header, flicking the ball on, looking for teammates. 73. Evans and Smallwood again clear up midfield. 74. More fantastic work by the tireless Bennett, winning the ball in midfield. 77. For the umpteenth time Graham holds up well, flicking the ball inside. Quality show. 78. Bell is missing allowing the winger to cross along the edge of the box but Watkins shot is wide. 80. Good chasing back by Travis. 93. A moment of hesitation by Lenihan allows the Brentford man a shot from the edge of the box. Just wide.

    ROVERS vs Lincoln

    On Tuesday night, Rovers take on the Imps. I had intended to do some more research and typing but I broke my arm last week so this will have to do; Lincoln facts; Lincoln is a cathedral city around 100 miles away in the midlands Our last competitive fixture was in the FA cup in 1974, our last league fixture in 1958 in Division two. 6 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in total. Lincoln are top of league two, undefeated having beaten Notts county in their previous outing. Currently managed by Danny Cowley, one of two brothers making a name for themselves in lower league. Micheal Bostwick is an important player for Lincoln, who also have Scott Wharton currently on loan. As for Rovers; I hope we progress, but I also hope that TM rests a few key bodies to keep our league form going - Mulgrew/Lenihan/Evans/Graham. Its early days, but perhaps Rodwell would suit a debut in this type of game. Prediction - 3-1 Rovers.

    ROVERS v Brentford

    Probably the first real test of our top-half Championship credentials, if we have some. Brentford are, by all accounts, very good. A progressive club with link to clubs in Iceland and Denmark they seem to unearth some quality players from far and wide. Alan Judge is still there but |I'm not sure he's back to being a starter after his injury. Watkins, the lad they signed from Exeter, will be one to watch - a big striker with pace and an eye for goal, just like we need. Not sure if their other main goalscorer Maupay is banned this Saturday. Last three matches against them at Ewood in Championship have ended in a 3-2 win, a 3-2 defeat and a 1-1 draw. Last time at Ewood, a DG brace, hopefully a good omen:- Bradley Walsh was a pro there in the 70's but never played. That's as funny as Brentford, or this post, will get. They have a fans forum: http://www.griffinpark.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=3 If anyone has footage of Jason Lowe kicking the ball out of play at Brentford (the day we went down)| while trying to get it under control that would be terrific. No idea who is fit, or if Rodders will play, but this could be a very tough game. A win would be great but with our walking wounded and lack of strength in depth up front a draw might be a good result. 1-1 with a crowd of 12,314. COYB!

    Bristol Away Question

    Got a question that I hope yee can help with! Hoping to head to my first away rovers match ever next week in Bristol. Tried to buy tickets online but none are available. I'm based in Ireland and am flying straight over to Bristol so is it even possible for me to get tickets at all without going to the ticket office in Blackburn? Sorry if its a stupid question in advance!
  12. Blackburn Rovers picking up a massive 1-0 victory of high flyers Brentford. Despite hitting the woodwork twice Brentford could not taking anything from this match. Rovers had limited opportunities in front of goal, as their creative line has been hit with injuries this past week got their noses in front thanks to a goal from loan signing Kasey Palmer. Rovers pressed their opponents throughout the 90 minutes with players such as Elliott Bennett, Corry Evans and new signing Joe Rothwell working tirelessly. As mentioned earlier, Rovers lacked key players in this match with Bradley Dack and Adam Armstrong missing the match through injury. Next up Lincoln in the cup and Bristol City on the road. Later on the channel a more detailed review of the match including words from the gaffa and fan input. In this video we hear from the gaffa Tony Mowbray on the result. Plus some match analysis and much more. Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Bell, Smallwood, Evans (Travis, 77), Bennett, Rothwell, Palmer (Conway, 69), Nuttall (Graham, 59).

  15. Blackburn Rovers returned to Ewood Park to try and continue their fine start to the 2018-19 Championship season. However they found themselves in deep water at half time being 2 goals down to a plucky Reading. The visitors scored both goals via defensive howlers by Rovers and they were scored by Bödvarsson. Rovers were hit by a couple of injuries both before the match and during the match, as midfield dynamo Bradley Dack and Kasey Palmer both ruled out, whereas during the match both Adam Armstrong and Dominic Samuel where substituted due to injuries. Regardless Rovers fought back via 2 penalties scored by Cpt Charlie Mulgrew to maintain our unbeaten start to the Championship season. In this video we hear from Marc Mayo from The Tile Hurst End podcast on his thoughts relating to Reading FC, we also get words from the gaffa Tony Mowbray on the result. Plus some match analysis and much more. Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Bell, Evans, Smallwood (Samuel, 46 (Nuttall, 72)), Bennett, Rothwell, Armstrong (Conway, 45), Graham.

    Hull away

    Even though the game is only 2 weeks away, tickets are not yet for sale on the website. Is it too much to ask that the people in charge of the ticket office do their job?
  17. The 2018-19 EFL Championship continues as Blackburn Rovers take on Reading FC at Ewood Park as they look to continue their decent start to the new season. Rovers come into the match fresh off the back of their first win of the season which took place on Saturday against Hull City at the KCOM stadium. As for Reading FC they have yet to get off the mark in the league, and they come into this match fresh off the back of a defeat to Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.

    Can anyone be arsed putting some effort in and doing some proper ones? Maybe have a list of the ones people would like to do like last year?
  19. Blackburn Rovers get their first win of the season on the road against Hull City at the KCOM stadium. The only goal coming from Bradley Dack shortly before the half time whistle. Despite that, Hull City edged themselves back into the game towards the final 20 minutes. However Rovers held firm thanks to some fantastic saves from David Raya towards the end. The only concern for Rovers after the match is the health of Bradley Dack who was substituted with a knee injury shortly into the 2nd half. In this video we hear from Kieran Webster on his thoughts relating to Hull City, we also get words from the gaffa Tony Mowbray on the result. Plus some match analysis and much more. Hull City: Marshall, Lichaj, De Wijs, Evandro, MacDonald, Irvine, Kane, Bowen (Milinkovic, 72), Henriksen (c), Kingsley (Toral, 29), Campbell (Dicko, 72). Unused substitutes: Long, Stewart, Keane, Curry. Booked: Evandro, 68 Rovers: Raya, Nyambe, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Bell, Evans, Smallwood, Bennett, Dack (Graham, 58), Palmer (Travis, 67), Armstrong (Rothwell, 78).

    Carlisle Away

    https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/august/ticket-news-carlisle-united-a/ Anyone going? Only £7.50 if you have a ST but you have to buy by 5pm today.
  21. You’ve got to be keen to do this for a 0-0 draw! But I got some good feedback last time, so here goes. There are lies, damn lies and statistics as Disraeli may have said. I was thinking about this after reading the fans comments on the post-match comments for the Ipswich game. I compared the fans’ opinions to the ratings on the whoscored.com website. Apparently Williams was our best player (7.62) and Nyambe the worst (5.82). There wasn’t much correlation! Anyway, here’s my effort for the Millwall game: Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellent play * Instance of decent/good play * Instance of disappointing/poor play * Instance of terrible play * E&OE Ratings Raya ** ** Nyambe ***** *** * Lenihan ************ ****** * Mulgrew ******* ***** * Bell ****** **** Smallwood(66) **** * Evans * ********* ** Bennett(80) * ********** Dack(82) ** ********* *** Graham ** ****** * * Palmer(63) **** ** Rothwell(63) * ** * Armstrong(66) **** Travis(80) *** * Highlights and Lowlights (A justification for the main ratings above) 6. Lenihan plays his second “too short” pass in a minute putting pressure on his team mates. This one almost allows the Millwall man a clear run on goal - fortunately Mulgrew just gets a touch. 9. Evans and Smallwood don’t do enough to prevent Millwall working the ball right across the edge of the box. Saville hits the post. 11. A nice ball from Bennett to Graham in the box. Graham heads down to Dack but he can’t quite get there. 26. Lenihan manages to get his head on a long ball but it doesn’t go far and comes straight back. Mulgrew sells himself in a poor challenge and Lenihan is too slow to stop Morrison taking a clear run on goal. He hits the post. 37. Terrible throw-in from Nyambe allows the Millwall man a run towards goal. Lenihan is too easily brushed aside. Fortunately the shot is blocked. 44. An excellent low free kick to the bottom corner by Dack. Good save. 45. Good cross from Dack is met by Lenihan. His header lands on the top of the bar. 50. Graham bursts through on to a long low ball, fighting off the defender superbly. He gets his shot in but the goalie saves with his legs. Having set it up so well, Graham should have scored. 59. A wonderful through ball by Dack. This time Graham has a clearer run on goal. He holds off the defender well but his shot hits the goalies legs again. Sorry Danny but this time it’s got to be “red”. 69. Graham chests down a long ball into the path of Rothwell who takes it on at speed and releases a fine shot from 25 metres. Another good save. 89. Evans drives forward brilliantly from the edge of his own box, holding off two Millwall men. Sadly his cross was a stinker!
  22. The 2018-19 EFL Championship continues as Blackburn Rovers head back on the road this time to take Hull City at the KCOM Stadium. Hull City come into this match after picking up a a point out of their previous 2 matches. Whereas Rovers fair only slightly better after picking up 2 points from the first two matches of the season. Rovers are also fresh of the back of a 1-5 victory over Carlisle United in the Carabaro Cup, so we will be hoping they bring their goalscoring boots with them to Hull on Saturday.

    Millwall

    First game at home. I'm not sure about Millwall. They did okay last season. Predictions?
  24. Oldgregg86

    Carlisle away

    Thread not started so I thought I'd get one going. Anyone going. What team would people play. I'd go Raya Nyambe. Downing. Lenihan bell Whittingham Travis Rothwell. Palmer. Conway Armstrong * Assuming Davenport isn't fit Subs. Leutwiler, Caddis, williams, Smallwood, simmonds, samuel, nuttall
  25. An assessment of individual player performance on Saturday Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellent play * Instance of decent/good play * Instance of disappointing/poor play * Instance of terrible play * E&OE Ratings Raya * **** * * Nyambe * ************* **** Lenihan * ***************** ** Mulgrew * ***************** **** ** Williams ** *********** ***** Smallwood * ********* * Evans * ***** * Bennett * ******** * Dack(82) *** ****** Graham(64) *** *********** ** Samuel(66) **** ** Palmer(64) * * Nutall(66) * *** * Conway(82) Highlights and Lowlights (A justification for the main events above) 5. A beautiful ball into the box beats all the Rovers defenders and Edwards scores a neat header. Williams should have done better I feel. 14. Excellent hold up play by Graham. 19. A looping free kick from Smallwood reaches Lenihan who directs his header back across goal, Williams flicks on and the keeper fails to palm the ball clear. Graham lashes it into the net. 21. Poor pass by Graham in midfield is intercepted by An Ipswich man who threads the ball through our entire defence. Raya rushes out to clear up but instead of putting the ball into the stands, he kicks it straight to an opponent who fortunately cannot take advantage. 27 Great chase back by Bennett who wins the ball and lays it off. 28 Under pressure, Graham flicks a beautiful ball down the wing. Williams chases and his perfect cross is smashed into the net by an on-rushing Dack. Great goal. 66. Poor decision by Mulgrew. Appealing desperately and unsuccessfully for offside, he allows the Ipswich man to play a nice ball across the face of goal……no one there to finish off fortunately. 67. A good chase and challenge by Nuttall wins a throw which he takes quickly. Dack runs on to the ball and eventually Evans puts the ball into the stands! 77. Dack receives the ball on the touchline, swivels expertly to put in a dangerous cross. It’s cleared but eventually Nyambe passes through to Dack who slides the ball across the goal to Nuttall but his shot is blocked. The ball bounces to Palmer in a great position but he manages to hit the prone goalie. Should have been three! 80. A mix up by Mulgrew and Williams gives the Ipswich player a clear run on goal. Raya saves. 81. Great save by Raya’s legs. Panic from the resulting corner as Raya fails to gather but the Ipswich man puts the ball over the bar! 90. Freak goal!
