    A day to remember

    https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/december/a-day-to-remember-2018/ As I recall from previous years this is always a poignant event as I recognised several Rovers fans on the big screen who sadly passed away in the previous year. Well done Rovers for showing respect and also giving the fans an opportunity to show our respect to them and their families.

    Pete Shelley dead

    How the table really looks

    I seen this on another forum and thought it gave a more realistic view of the league table. Shows clearly gaps appearing within the table which simply stakeing teams from 1st to 24th simply doesn't. I think there is a danger of the top 7 teams running away and securing the playoff if we aren't careful. It literally is make or break time for this season I think. Just to emphasis my point a little further we are 11 points off top spot and 11 points off the relegation. How do you all think we will be sitting come mid January. ? Id be happy to be where we are . Next 6 Fixtures Boro - Brum - Norwich - Leeds - Sheff United - West Brom 1 line equals 1 point starting from the top (44 points) and working down to the Bottom (11 points). Norwich Leeds West Brom, Middlesboro, Forest. Sheff united, Derby Villa Birmingham ROVERS QPR Stoke Swansea, Bristol City Wigan Sheff Wed, Brentford, Preston Hull, Rotherham Reading, Millwall, Bolton Ipswich

    Jim Iley RIP

    For anybody old enough to remember him Jim Iley has sadly passed away. My memories of him as a Rovers manager aren't too fond but I was told he was a nice man. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/17238380.former-blackburn-rovers-boss-jim-iley-dies-age-82/
  5. This has received a lot of traction on Twitter but for those forum members who don’t use Twitter I wanted to share this. The background is that Jen Bellamy, one of our regular podcast panel members, christened Harrison Reed the Ginger Ninja on one episode in a sort of throwaway line. When I went to Brockhall for Episode 100 of the pod, I also managed to grab a few words with Harrison Reed & shared with him the hashtag history & he said he was aware of it... Well one thing led to another...Jen designed a logo for the society...then she gauged interest in having some badges made up, proceeds to charity...then Ryan Grant spoke with Harrison & found out he had a pet charity... https://nervetumours.org.uk/what-are-nerve-tumours/what-is-nf1/support-for-adults-with-nf1 & So Jen crowdfunded the cost of manufacture, has had them made & will be selling them alongside Scott Sumner of 4000 Holes magazine fame, who will also be selling his latest edition...at the junction of Kidder St & Nuttall St tomorrow afternoon from 2pm. She is rightly excited & I for one am mightily impressed at the initiative & enthusiasm involved and the fact it raises money for a charity adopted by one of our players is just the icing on a rather splendid cake... So....please drop by tomorrow & buy one...or two...that’s basically the gist 👍🏻

Thanks for your interest and support this year! COYB!
  7. I was in LA a few weeks ago, Brentwood to be exact, and the only concern for Californians was the relentless traffic that plagues the city, even the elections seemed of little concern, and fires the last thing on anyone's mind. Today we find the town of 'paradise' burnt to the ground. Over a 1000 people unaccounted for across the state with 71 confirmed dead. Trump blamed the forestry commission for the disaster, apparently they'd failed to look after the brush, but had taken millions of $$$$ to do so, but the wise money is on climate change as the cause for this terrible disaster. My main point really centres around the missing 1000+ people? How can the biggest super power in the world first of all not be able to deal with all the fires, and secondly not know how many people are dead or missing? The US just don't seem to be able to deal with disasters, it was the same after the New Orleans hurricane, parts of the city are still inhabitable years after the disaster. Many hold them up as the leaders of the free world, but they can't deal with domestic natural disasters? Why?

    New Kits

    Any rumours/ leaks? Can’t see them being on sale before the end of May otherwise everyone will cash in with their club cash! Everton’s new kit is nice so fingers crossed for something similar. Funny feeling yellow will return for the away!

    The king would have been 62 today.
  12. The club have just released a statement from Tony, a plea to keep fans on side and continue the backing, can’t argue with any of it I presume they have picked up on some concern from the weekend and know that Tony is super popular and it’s a good way to try and stop the murmurs of concern, as always he comes across as a great human and someone easy to like: https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/november/tonys-plea-to-fans/ Edit my apologies it seems it was from Thursday
  13. It's that time again - i've just had an e-mail come through inviting BRFCS to the Supporters Consultation Meeting on Thursday 21st June. We get 5 invites - two have to be continuous attendees so will be taken by BRFCS admin/mods. If you want to come as part of the other three please send me a PM. If you have anything you want suggesting to the agenda please post below.
  14. An interesting article. I would hazard a guess that the claim runs into millions with several ex Rovers and Ian Battersby involved. Urquhart has got previous when it comes to dodgy dealings. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-46274098

    Preston tickets

    On sale from today, 5500 allocation, £24 a head adults. Hopefully we'll fill it and after banishing the Bolton demons move on to stage 2 of 3 by beating this lot then Wigan a few days later for 3 of 3. https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/october/ticket-news-preston-north-end-a/
  17. I'm not normally a fan of the honours system but this is fully deserved. Arise Sir King Kenny, not bad for a 'wee scally fae the Milton'.

    Darragh Lenihan

    First start for Ireland tonight. I can see him making the place his own. Let's see how his partnership with Rovers favourite Duffy goes. It's actually 3 at the back with Egan from Sheffield United.
  19. Remember going up there in the late 80s and having a right laugh. Also remember loads of refugees pitching up in the 90s ? Romanians I think fleeing from the horrible beast who's name is can't spell. ChowchessQ 👍

    Signed Rovers Shirt

    Folks, my partner and I were successful in bidding for a signed Rovers ladies shirt, it is signed by the current first team squad with their numbers next to their signatures. It’s the red shirt and is immaculate in condition, the signatures are not smudged and it isn’t framed. We got the shirt raising money for several charities. I would now like to offer the shirt to anyone who is raising money for a charitable cause as a donation as I believe it’s the right thing to do. So if any fellow Rovers fans is wanting a gift to try and raise some extra donations for their charitable cause please contact me so that I can arrange for the shirt to be handed to them. The shirt is not a gift or a trophy, it is to raise money for a good cause. Thanks

    Speaking Behind Hands

    Seeing more and more players and coaches speaking behind their hands in the game. Can players and coaches be blamed for doing it?

    David Helliwell

    Very sorry to read about the passing of David Helliwell. Always thought that he had so much potential but playing at the time he did was probably too small to make an impact. RIP.
