    Rovers V Bristol City

    Not sure if there is a taker for this, so I will get the ball rolling. P Must win if we have any aspirations of knocking around the play-offs. From last weekend the following players were carrying knocks -Lenihan, Dack, Graham, Travis and Evans. Does anyone have an update on this? We could do with them being fit, although perhaps a shake up wouldn't be the worst call. Not an easy team to pick this week, with a couple of main bones of contention. Bennett or Nyambe, Mulgrew or Rodwell. Raya Nyambe Lenihan(c) Rodwell Bell Travis Reed Rothwell Dack Armstrong Brereton Come on Ben, make a name for yourself
  2. Blackburn Rovers return to Ewood Park in an attempt to get back to winning ways, their opponents this weekend will be in form Bristol City. Rovers, hope to get back on the playoff track after their heavy defeat last weekend to Brentford. Bristol City on the other hand are the form team in the division, an would like to secure 3 more points to ensure they remain in the playoff spots. In the build up to the match I spoke with Dave Skinner from the One Stream in Bristol Podcast about the match. Catch his thoughts, starting lineups and of course a prediction from the Cat.

  3. Blackburn Rovers fell to a heavy defeat against Brentford at Griffin Park losing 5-2 which ends their recent 4 game winning streak. In fact the result is Rovers first defeat in the league in 2019, as for Brentford however their nice run continues with this being their 5th win back to back. Rovers in fact burst into life at the start of the match scoring two goals within the first 10 minutes. The 1st a nice goal for Bradley Dack, with the second a nice set piece scored by Danny Graham. As for Brentford they clawed their way back into the match before half time to reduce the deficit. However in the 2nd half they exploded into life with a quick equalizer scored by my danger man Olly Watkins. After that, with Rovers searching for a winner the game was stretched, and Brentford took full advantage of that a took the lead. 2 further goals were added, as we tried to get back into it. Ultimately Rovers fell short, and Brentford kick on up the table. Hopefully Rovers can bounce back next weekend against Bristol City. Brentford: Bentley, Henry (Odubajo, 46), Maupay, Watkins, Mokotjo (McEachran, 85), Sawyers (c), Benrahma (Canos, 80), Dalsgaard, Jeanvier, Konsa, Barbet. Unused substitutes: Daniels, Dasilva, Ogbene, Sorensen. Goals: Benrahma, 13, Watkins, 59, 74, Maupay, 79, Canos, 90 Booked: Barbet, 45 Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Rodwell, Lenihan, Bell, Evans (Brereton, 62), Travis, Reed, Dack (Conway, 52), Armstrong, Graham (Nuttall, 52). Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Williams, Smallwood, Rothwell. Goals: Dack, 2, Graham, 8 Booked: Lenihan, 70 Referee: Andy Davies Webpage πŸ‘‰ http://blackburnroverseas.com Twitter πŸ‘‰ http://twitter.com/roverseas Facebook πŸ‘‰ http://facebook.com/blackburnroverseas Subscribe πŸ‘‰ http://youtube.com/blackburnroverseas Other Work πŸ‘‰ http://youtube.com/box500productions Also be sure to drop by Twitch as and when, I often broadcast Blackburn Rovers related gameplay as well as some Football Manager: Twitch πŸ‘‰ http://twitch.tv/roverseas Cass the Cat Championship Edition πŸ‘‰ http://goo.gl/n6Ubkw

  6. Next up for Blackburn Rovers its a difficult road trip to Brentford. Rovers come into this match in very good shape, winning 4 out of the last 4. In fact they have yet to lose any Sky Bet Championship match in 2019. Brentford are also in good form, and come into this match unbeaten in the last 6. They may be in 18th spot in the table, but they are on the rise. A win for Rovers could see them sneak into the playoff spots. Meanwhile, earlier this week I caught up with Daniel McGee who is a Brentford supporter to talk about that match, and get a quick summary of Brentford's season so far.

    Best starting eleven

    Done some statistic research and this is our best 11: Raya Reed Lenihan Mulgrew Bennett Evans Rodwell Travis Dack Graham Armstrong Rodwell is a better defender than Mulgrew but Mulgrew has scored 8 goals this season so hard to leave out. Whats your best 11?
  8. Blackburn Rovers make it 4 wins on the spin after a fantastic performance against red hot Hull City. Rovers coming out on top with a 3-0 win with goals from Adam Armstrong, Jack Rodwell and Harrison (sign him up Tony) Reed. Hull who had been on a long unbeaten run looked lost without ideas, whereas Rovers looked hungry and took full advantage early on. After a dodgy Christmas period Rovers remain unbeaten (100%) in 2019 in the league and will look to kick on next week against Brentford at their place. Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Rodwell, Lenihan, Bell, Evans, Travis, Reed (Conway, 81), Dack, Armstrong (Rothwell, 81), Graham (Nuttall, 74). Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Williams, Smallwood, Brereton. Goals: Armstrong, 10, Rodwell, 18, Reed, 73 Booked: Rodwell, 86 Hull City: Marshall, Mazuch (Lichaj, 43), Stewart, Evandro (Campbell, 46), Grosicki, Kane, Bowen, Henriksen (c), Kingsley, McKenzie, Martin. Unused substitutes: Long, Pugh, Milinkovic, Batty, Ritson. Booked: Grosicki, 64 Referee: Jeremy Simpson.

  9. Here I am again, filling a void. Talking tosh. Reet, they are Yorkshire, we are better. It's apparently 111 miles according to an app I used between the two grounds (ours is better, I've been to theirs). One hour fifty seven, if the M62 isn't snowy. They were founded in 1904, and are apparently a City. In the words of Shania Twain, "That don't impress me much". They've won nowt, and got to the promised land in 2007, briefly. They share a love of strange owner/s. Head to head: W 30 D 17 L 15 We had our first meeting in the FA Cup in 1947, when we won in a replay. First league meeting in the old Div 2, 22nd August 1949 at Ewood, 4-2 win. Last home league game, 13/02/16, lost as we know, Duffy played, enough said, 13,902, were there (could have been more, probably less). They are nicknamed the Tigers. Not sure why, save for their kit. Our's is miles better. And we have a dog, a person's best friend. Tiger's are not friendly. And are not indigenous to the Humber? Facts about them: They are called Hullensians, we are Rovers. They installed an independent telephone system in 1902. They were very proud of their white telephone boxes. We have got a red phone box on Clayton Street with more information on the ladies of the town that you would ever need. They have a really long bridge to nowhere, so have we Players - Danny Graham and Mark Atkins were both on loan to them. Far better here! Actors - Tom Courtney, I'll give them that, beats Ian McShane? Just. Comedians - Reece Shearsmith v Steve Pemberton - they can fight it out between themselves, mates! Pop stars - Beautiful South v Diana Vickers....I know who I'd prefer! So there you have it. It's a big game. Three points would be great. Need to start winning games back to back. Momentum, according to Grease, is the word. COYB's.
  10. Blackburn Rovers return to Sky Bet Championship action when they take on red hot Hull City at Ewood Park. Both sides come into the match on 40 points in the table. Rovers meanwhile, have won their past 3 league matches most recently a 2-0 win against Ipswich Town. Hull City have turned a massive corner and after a tricky start they have shot up the table. They come into this match on the back of a respectable 2-2 draw against Aston Villa and Villa Park. In this video I caught up with Hull City superfan Bobbi Hadgraft to talk all things Hull City, we also get a sneaky prediction from the Cat.

  11. Having seen off Millwall at their place at the weekend, we welcome the division’s basement boys Ipswich Town to Ewood this weekend. They beat fellow strugglers Rotherham last time out, so will be buoyed by that result, if nothing else. Being totally honest, Ipswich look doomed and have done for a while. It would be one of THE great escapes if they managed to avoid relegation this season. I’ve been to Portman Road myself and I can confirm even without doing a point to point search via the medium of Google Maps, it’s REALLY FAR AWAY! It was a sunny day, the first day of the season and that silly Scottish man who succeeded Sam Allardyce was still our manager. On the plus side, there was a beer & food festival in Ipswich that day and the sun was shining. We drew 1-1 and continued our alcohol consumption on the way home. As then new signing Colin Kazim-Richards had scored the only goal, the newly adopted anthem for him was repeated on numerous occasions on the coach on the way home! Saturday’s Opponents Initially founded as an amateur side, they were known as β€˜Ipswich A.F.C.’ until a merger with Ipswich Rugby Club. The club was formed 3 years after we were in 1878, but rather unusually, they didn’t turn professional until 1936 and were then elected to join the football league 2 years later. They played in the Division Three South until the end of the 53-54 season and it was at this point, they won the title and were promoted to Division Two. Unfortunately, after just one season at a higher level, they were relegated back to Division Three South. It’s probably fair to say that one of the most successful periods in the club’s history came under World Cup winning England Manager Sir Alf Ramsey. Taking over in 1955, he led the club to the Division Three South title that year. Under Ramsey’s leadership, the club were able to establish themselves in Division Two and by the 60-61 season, he had led the club to Division One for the first time in the club’s history. The team would go on to became champions at their first attempt at the top flight in 61-62. (Can anyone imagine that happening today??) Ramsey would eventually leave the club in April 1963 to take charge of the national team. Regrettably, following the departure of Ramsey, the club fell into something of a decline. Jackie Milburn, (one of those β€˜famous Newcastle number 9s’ the media often references) took over and wasn’t a success. Indeed, by 1964, just two years after winning the league title, the club returned to the second division. In that season, the club conceded a whopping 121 league goals in 42 games. This remains one of the worst-ever defensive records in English Football. (And we think we have defensive problems!!) This led to Jackie Milburn tendering his resignation and he was replaced by Bill McGarry. The club remained in the Second Division for four years, until McGarry was able to guide the club to promotion in the 67-68 season. McGarry would leave the club in January 1969, to be replaced by another future national team manager in Bobby Robson. Robson would take the reins for the next 13 years and lead the club to FA Cup & UEFA cup success as well as finishing runners up in the league twice. Before Robson was poached by the Football Association for the national team manager’s job. Since 2002, the club have been in The Championship, though as I alluded to in the beginning, this position looks seriously under threat.

  13. Blackburn Rovers make it 3 wins out of 3 for 2019 after a solid performance against strugglers Ipswich Town. Rovers winning the match 2-0 with goals from Danny Graham (penalty), and substitute Joe Nuttall wrapping up the win. Blackburn created multiple chances and could have been 3 goals to the good at half time, however we were not clinical enough in front of goal. Ultimately Rovers pace and creativity caused tio many problems for Paul Lambert and his men. Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Lenihan, Rodwell, Bell, Evans (Smallwood, 82), Travis, Reed (Rothwell, 46), Dack, Armstrong, Graham (Nuttall, 74). Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Nyambe, Brereton, Conway.

  14. Well, as I sit here composing more nonsense to hopefully educate and entertain, Sir Bradley of Dack has put us 2-0 up against WBA. I hope by the time I've finished WBA will not have scored 3! (Now 2-1!). The FA Cup, the oldest cup competition in the whole of the World, is perhaps not all it used to be, and isn't perhaps always taken seriously by the Lords at the PL top table, but fair play to Newcastle they have priced this very attractively to us, and an initial allocation of 3,000 may well sell out at Β£10 tops. Head to head: As far as I can work out, we have surprisingly only faced each other eight times (not including replays,) in the Cup's history. The first time was in 1910, at their place, where we lost 3-1, in front of nearly 55,000. Our overall record against Newcastle is: W 56 D 29 L 58 Pretty even. In the Cup it isn't so good: W 2 L 6 The last game was 7th January 2012 at St James Park, a 2-1 defeat, where Finetodger scored for the Rovers. You have to go back to February 1993 for a Rovers win, when Roy Wegerle scored the only goal of the game at Ewood, in front of just under 20,000. Both clubs have a cracking history in the cup: Rovers: Winners 6 times, Runners-up twice Newcastle: Winners 6 times, R-U 7 Recent common players: Andy Cole Keith Gellespie David Batty Darren Peacock Craig Bellamy Kevin Gallagher Leon Best Danny Simpson Howard Gayle Danny Guthrie Shefki Kuqi Zurab Khizanishvili Grant Hanley Damien Duff I'm sure there's another......it will come to me, give me time. Random facts about Newcastle: 1849's Robert Stephenson's high level bridge was the first road/rail bridge in the entire World......our Wainwright bridge to nowhere, can't even carry chuff-chuffs! The Town Moor is bigger than Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath together, and the freemen of Newcastle can graze their cattle on it. Corporation Park has a reet fine duck pond! One of my favourite films, Get Carter (1971) was filmed in the city, and that bloke who went on to be a publican in Corry was thrown off a multi-storey by that professional cockerney, Micky Caine. Britt Ekland took her top off, just saying. Part of Trainspotting 2 was filmed in Blackburn.....Scotland, although I think George Formby once trapped up in the borough to film summut old and in black and white, which was the colour of BwD before colour was invented in the 60's. The Grainger Market in Newcastle, was their first covered market, in 1835. Blackburn's indoor market is okay. The Newcastle Metro Centre is in the 10 biggest in Europe. The Mall is in the top 10 biggest in Lancashire. Newcastle Brown Ale is very well known, It tastes like liquified excrement. Thwaites still brew some palatable ales, although now in the suburbs, and elsewhere. Lucozade was invented in the city. John Noel Nichols, a Blackburnian invented Vimto. Vimto every time. Greggs was launched in Gosforth in 1951. Not a fan. There's a couple in the Mall if you need to? A Toon fan thought of the windscreen wiper in 1908 on the way back from a match in a storm, I swear by them. My lad is at Durham Uni. He insisted we go to the big city last I visited in November, as "there's bugger all to do in Durham". My own observation is that the folk of the City are very hardy, On a Saturday night they wear very few clothes. I had four layers on, and I'm no shrinking violet, but it was bloody cold! Alas, I was driving, but as I like a pint, there appear to be any number of fine watering holes in and around the stadium. I wish all those attending a safe and successful trip, with a few pints thrown in! Let's hope we are in the hat for the 4th Round. A good cup run is always fun. Tony, play a decent team, please? Oh, and phew, 3-points, who doesn't like a happy ending........(so Carry On!). Alan, oh, it will annoy me when it's pointed out.....played for us for four seasons, and I recall he was the best striker to ever play for the club, sorry Simon!
  15. Blackburn Rovers return to Sky Bet Championship action when they take on bottom of the league Ipswich Town. Rovers come into the match off the back of an extra time defeat against Premier League Newcastle United in a FA Cup replay. As for our visitors Ipswich Town they come into the match off the back of a 1-0 win over Rotherham United. Ipswich will be managed by Ex Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Lambert, whereas Rovers will be managed by Ex Ipswich Town player Tony Mowbray. In this video I caught up with Ipswich Town supporter Benjamin Bloom from the Blue Monday Podcast for his thoughts on Ipswich Towns season of struggles, plus we get a cheeky prediction from the Cat.

  16. Blackburn Rovers crashed out of the FA Cup after an exhausting encounter against Newcastle United. The final score of the match after 120 minutes of action was 2-4. Rovers actually started the match in the worst possible fashion conceding in the 1st minute. Newcastle then extended their lead making it 0-2 midway into the first half. Rovers clawed their way back into the match via Adam Armstrong, before Darragh Lenihan made it 2-2 on the stroke of half time. Newcastle United got the curcial 3rd goal in extra time via a dubious goal which on 2nd look was clearly offside. After that the game was stretched and the toon snatch their 4th. Newcastle will tackle Watford in the next round. Rovers can switch focus to Championship football. Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Nyambe, Lenihan, Bell, Travis, Smallwood (Rothwell, 102), Reed (Dack, 78), Brereton (Conway, 65), Armstrong (Nuttall, 73), Graham. Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Grayson, Butterworth. Goals: Armstrong, 33, Lenihan, 45 Newcastle United: Woodman, Clark (c) (Lascelles, 46 (Hayden, 56)), Schar, Murphy, Ritchie (Atsu, 118), Fernandez, Manquillo, Joselu, Sterry, Longstaff, Roberts (Perez, 94). Unused substitutes: Harker, Rondon, Yedlin. Goals: Longstaff, 1, Roberts, 22, Joselu, 115, Perez, 117. Booked: Fernandez, 90 Referee: Lee Probert. Attendance: 14,228.

  17. Blackburn Rovers return to Ewood Park to take on Newcastle United in the FA Cup replay for a place in the 4th round. Blackburn come into this match on the back of a win against Millwall on the weekend. Newcastle on the other hand come into this match on the back of a defeat by Chelsea in the Premier League. The first time these two sides locked horns in the initial FA Cup match the scoreline was 1-1. Rovers will hope home advantage will have the desired effect when Newcastle United come calling on Tuesday night. In this video we countdown to kick off with some team stats, and a cheeky prediction from the Cat.

  18. This coming weekend Rovers are literally going into the Lions Den as we take on Millwall. I believe that pound for pound the New Den is the most hostile ground in the country which can be daunting for officials, players and visiting supporters. Millwall were formed in 1885 and contrary to rumour not by London Dockers but the workers of J. T. Morton's canning and preserve factory in the Millwall area of the Isle of Dogs in London's East End. Strangely enough their original name was Millwall Rovers. They moved to the Den (the Cold Blow Lane one) in 1910 where they stayed until 1993 when they moved to the New Den and have been there ever since. It has often been said that Millwall is one of the most difficult clubs to play for as their predominantly working class fan base won't accept fancy dans and shirkers as epitomised by club legends such as Barry Kitchener,Terry Hurlock, Harry Cripps and current manager Neil Harris who was nicknamed Chopper after the Chelsea legend Ron. Neil Harris sums up really what Millwall are about. As a player he was totally committed and always gave his all. He could play hard if he had to and leave a foot in. His management style replicates this as he can be aggressive in the technical area. I actually refereed at the New Den several times and found the staff behind the scenes to be friendly and hospitable which completely belied the image generally portrayed by the media. Crossing the white line though was like going into a different world as the hostility was prevalent whenever as decision went against them. Fortunately every game I refereed there was a home win so I escaped relatively unscathed. Rovers record against Millwall is quite good with 20 wins, 11 losses and 10 defeats in all competitions. Saturday will be difficult to predict so I'm sitting on the fence and going for a draw. As it's live on Sky there is an opportunity for everyone to see it but to the fellow Rovers travelling down have a safe journey and hopefully a celebratory trip back. Although I don't want them to score any goals if they do listen for the song below which I believe is the best football club song ever. It kind of sums up what Millwall is all about. Let 'em all come down the the Den indeed!
  19. Blackburn Rovers continued their unbeaten start to 2019 as the beat Millwall 2-0 and The Den. The goals came very late, the first via Joe Nuttall, not the prettiest of goals, but very vital. The 2nd came in quick succession as substitute Adam Armstrong scored via an excellent counter attack. In this video we hear what Tony Mowbray had to say after that match. We take an deeper look at the story of the match and get the thoughts from both sides of the fence, with a video from Millwall supporter Michael Avery. Millwall: Archer, Meredith (Williams, 87), Hutchinson (c), Cooper, Wallace, Ferguson, Romeo, Tunnicliffe, Elliott (Morison, 3), O'Brien (Gregory, 68), Leonard. Unused substitutes: Martin,Thompson, Pearce, Wallace. Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Rodwell, Lenihan, Bell, Travis, Evans (Nyambe, 46), Reed, Dack (Armstrong, 74), Conway (Graham, 64), Nuttall. Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Rothwell, Brereton, Butterworth. Goals: Nuttall, 85, Armstrong, 87 Referee: Robert Jones (Gavin Ward).

  20. Blackburn Rovers return to league action this time they head down south to London to take on Millwall. This will be the second time these two sides lock horns, after the first encounter ended 0-0. Rovers come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw with Premier League Newcastle United in the FA Cup. As for the hosts they come into the match on the back of a FA Cup victory over Hull City. Millwall's recent form could cause some concern for Rovers, as they have won 4 out of 5 in all competitions. In this video I spoke with Millwall supporter Michael Avery about their chances, to get his input on the match. Plus we get a prediction from the cat.

    FA Cup 2019: Third Round onwards

    Well on the eve of our match, the first match of the dog's dinner round of three takes place on the Wirral. As I type, Spurs are 7-0 up at Tranmere. A thread not particularly for our great FA cup tradition, but for comments about the other ties? As I said in the Newcastle thread, it would be nice for us to take it seriously. The commentators are saying Spurs not reet bothered. I find that quite sad. But they are doing alreet at the moment!
  22. Blackburn Rovers continued their 2019 in unbeaten style as they held Premier League Newcastle United to a 1-1 draw in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Blackburn took the lead through Bradley Dack who made it two goals in two games. Newcastle equalized via a penalty deep into the match Matt Ritchie the goalscorer. To be honest I felt Rovers were in control of the match, and could find themselves a little bit unlucky not to have made it through to the 4th road proper. Rovers and Newcastle will go again in a replay, and both names for now will go into the hat for the 4th round. Newcastle United: Woodman, Schar, Murphy (Atsu, 75), Ritchie (c), Hayden (Shelvey, 58), Kenedy, Manquillo, Lejeune, Joselu, Sterry, Longstaff (Perez, 80). Unused substitutes: Harker, Clark, Rondon, Yedlin. Goal: Ritchie pen, 84. Booked: Ritchie, 90. Rovers: Raya, Bennett, Lenihan, Mulgrew (c), Bell, Travis, Evans, Armstrong (Reed, 70), Dack (Williams, 85), Conway, Graham (Brereton, 79). Unused substitutes: Leutwiler, Nyambe, Rothwell, Downing. Goal: Dack, 57 Referee: Kevin Friend Webpage πŸ‘‰ http://blackburnroverseas.com Twitter πŸ‘‰ http://twitter.com/roverseas Facebook πŸ‘‰ http://facebook.com/blackburnroverseas Subscribe πŸ‘‰ http://youtube.com/blackburnroverseas Other Work πŸ‘‰ http://youtube.com/box500productions Also be sure to drop by Twitch as and when, I often broadcast Blackburn Rovers related gameplay as well as some Football Manager: Twitch πŸ‘‰ http://twitch.tv/roverseas Cass the Cat Championship Edition πŸ‘‰ http://goo.gl/n6Ubkw

  24. Well it's a start. Well done Rovers on putting this together: https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/december/matchday-timetable-west-bromwich-albion-h/ I'm going positive. 2-2
  25. Blackburn Rovers started 2019 with a much needed win against high flyers West Bromwich Albion. Rovers coming away with a 2-1 win courtesy if goals from Charlie Mulgrew (direct from corner kick), and Bradley Dack. As for West Brom, their goal came from a penalty from ex dingle Jay Rodriguez. West Brom did have a player sent off in the final 10 minutes or so, which sealed the deal. In this video we review the match, take a look at the match stats, and hear what the gaffa has to say.
