  1. 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!
  3. Irish...Rover

    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!
  4. 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.

As for the visitors this Saturday, Brentford also fresh off the back of a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa. Brentford currently riding high in 4th place where as Rovers lie unbeaten in 9th.

  7. 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?
  9. 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?
  11. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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. In this video I preview the match with input from Hull City supporter Kieran Webster and we also get a prediction from Cass the Cat. Please like, share and subscribe.

    Millwall

    First game at home. I'm not sure about Millwall. They did okay last season. Predictions?
  16. 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
  17. 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!
  18. OK this is the kiss of death. We lost every match I did a preview for last season. I have never seen us win at Portman Road- I won't be going so be thankful for small mercies. I am not going to pick Mowbray's staring 11 or bench of18 for him but it looks like it will be pretty identical to last season, give a Palmer, take an Armstrong. Our last few trips to Portman Road have been pretty bleak (Ipswich first) 16/7 3-2 15/6 2-0 14/5 3-2 13/4 2-0 12/3 1-1 11/2 3-1 01/2 1-1 So not a happy hunting ground. Still, if I were Ipswich, I wouldn't be wanting to open the campaign against a team promoted as impressively as Rovers were. Betting odds are marginally making an Ipswich win favourites which I think is fair but all three outcomes are pretty evenly backed. Ipswich start their 17th Championship on the trot having parted company with 12 players (only Ben Knight to Man City for £700K for any cash) and brought only 5 in including Harrison from Bristol Rovers and Donacien from Accy Stanley. Which rather suggests they might struggle this season so this is a fixture we really should not be losing. A good opening test for Rovers and here's hoping the momentum from last season carries us on to a win.
