  1. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17408147.rovers-to-induct-seven-players-in-to-inaugural-hall-of-fame/ Record goalscorer Simon Garner, appearance holder Derek Fazackerley, and club legends Bryan Douglas, Ronnie Clayton, Brad Friedel, Alan Shearer and Bob Crompton, who led his hometown club to glory as a player and as a manager, are the first seven to be inducted. Friedel ahead of Tugay though? Tough call

  3. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fTlrULfDcUo&t=295s I have watched this lads short matchday videos for a couple of years and as an overseas fan found them a good way of getting a different feel for matchdays that you don't get just from say usual highlights. After 2 years and out of the blue, presumably the insipid pale dreary blue of Waggots office, orders issued have resulted in this lad being banned from doing any further filming on matchdays inside Ewood or risk the rath of Rovers. I have never seen him post anything controversial on his channel and he comes across as a well balanced lad who just wants to share his love of Rovers. I do not know him from Adam but just subscribe to his Youtube channel. I wish him well on his new venture, Rovers Fan TV. It will be interesting to see if the Club try to interfere with fan interviews outside of Ewood at the Ipswich game. I wonder if Rovers will actually have the bottle to ban all phone videoing inside Ewood.

    Mike Harrison

    Very sad to learn that Mike Harrison passed away. Mike was part of one of the most exciting forward lines ever to play for Rovers. RIP

    I've been away for a while

    I used to be a regular poster on these forums from 2000 to 2012. I probably wasn't the only one at the time but the whole Steve Kean/Venkys fiasco effectively killed my love for football. Besides the odd international game I completely switched off from the game and it wasn't until this past world cup that I started to keep an eye on Rovers results this season. My question is, in those years that I've been away, has the structure of the club improved, or is it still the hot mess that Kean, Venkys and Anderson left the club in back then or do Rovers fans now have something to be proud of again? Thanks in advance for any input.

    Peter Thompson

    I see Peter Thompson the old Preston, Liverpool and England winger has died. I remember him and John " The Tank " Bray having some terrific battles in the early 1960's. Thompson was a real handful with terrific dribbling skills. We don't seem to breed players like him anymore. RIP.
  13. Merry Christmas Friends, Fan Club Members and Sparring Partners - it’s all good! Hope you have a great Christmas and that the big man brings you all the things that are missing from your life. All the best, Stuart

    Bobby Saxton

    I was talking to a friend of mine last week who is a good friend of Neil Saxton. Neil is the son of Bobby Saxton, Rovers manager from 1981-86. He followed a tough act, Howard Kendall and preceded the popular Don Mackay. My mate was saying he never gets mentioned, it's like he never existed. He did a great job at a tough time, keeping Rovers in the 2nd Division when all our Lancashire neighbours were plumbing the depths of the 3rd and 4th Divisions - our only derby games then were Oldham and CIty every year. Without him Rovers would have sunk probably to the 4th. A great bloke who still loves Rovers. Anyone got any memories or photos?

    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.

    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/
  21. 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 👍🏻
  22. THE DECEMBER ISSUE IS HERE!! To order your copy please visit our ONLINE SHOP or purchase through eBay by CLICKING HERE. It's still only £1.50 and postage is 75p for first class delivery. If you haven't already heard, we managed to get ourselves shortlisted for the Football Supporters' Federation "Fanzine of the Year" Award which reflects how much we've improved it over the last 18 months and, of course, the continued excellent contributions by fans. We reckon that makes it amazing value for just £1.50! Issue 94 contains: Filling Our Fortress, Unrecognised Strikers, "Heart, Scarf and Soul" - A play starring a Rovers fan, Roque's Santa Cruise, Voice From The Valleys, Pre-Match Superstitions, The Ginger Ninja Appreciation Society, Rovers' Last Battlefield, Support As Performance - Not Everything is Mental, European Hangovers, Fabulous Faz!, Who Were You? #8 Dino Baggio, BRFCS Goes To Brockhall, Quizzes, Crossword, Boozers XI and many more shenanigans. If you prefer grabbing a copy in person, the fanzine will be sold outside Ewood before the forthcoming December matches from an hour before kick-off (at the bottom of Kidder Street). Thanks for your interest and support this year! COYB!
  23. 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?
