  1. 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.

  3. 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 ‘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 ‘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.

    Blackburn Ladies

    I have searched the site, and cannot find a thread and surely they deserve one? (Sorry if I have missed it.) Having won the triple last year, and cruelly overlooked to go into the PL, I note they are now storming the league. Six wins out of six, for 30, against 1! Do any members go, where do they play, and do the horrors from Pune support them? I just think it would be good if there was some publicity whilst there is a lull in the first team fixtures? Any information as to why they were rejected from the PL, despite an appeal, and the obvious that as soon as Man Ure raise a team, they are fast tracked?
  7. 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. Goal: Graham pen, 65, Nuttall, 74 Booked: Lenihan, 68, Nuttall, 76 Ipswich Town: Gerken, Chambers (c), Pennington, Chalobah, Skuse, Keane, Sears (BIshop, 82), Elder, Judge, Collins, Quaner (Lankester, 67). Unused substitutes: Bialkowski, Downes, Nsiala, Kenlock, Dawkins. Booked: Chambers, 64 Referee: Darren England.

  8. 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 £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!
  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!
  13. 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).

  14. 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!
  16. 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.

  17. Blackburn Rovers switch gears and focus on some FA Cup action up against Premier League Newcastle United. Good chance for some younger players to experience a larger crowd as tickets are cheap as chips. WE WILL BE THERE!! Rovers will head into the match on the back of a New Years day win over West Brom. As for Newcastle, they come into the match on the back of a defeat against a revitalized Manchester United. In this video which was recorded outside Ewood Park, we preview the match and get a prediction from the Cat.

  18. 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
  19. 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.

    Leeds fan in peace

    Hello Blackburn fans😊 Last season i started visiting our Championship rivals forums for a chat pre game 😀. Then i post the thread on our forum and anyone who fancies a read can. Nothing particularly difficult. Just thoughts on your squad, new signings, start to the season, how you see the season panning out for you and finally thoughts on Saturdays game😊. http://www.motforum.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=34686&hilit=Other+fans+opinions Thats where this will go for anyone who is curious. Any responses are appreciated. Cjay😊
  21. At the time of going to press: the world is shocked that The Queen has got a golden toilet, I’ve put on a(nother) stone of Xmas cheer, and disappointingly for some - Mowbray hasn’t resigned as a result of those late goals. Well buckle up chaps, because it’s our final game of 2018 – and what a fantastic year it has been: We lost just two games at Ewood. We had a memorable, wonderful night in Doncaster (and therefore created a sentence never before written). We found out that Bradley Dack’s influence is such that if he bends down and points at a girl’s arse in a garden - we get tonked. We’ve held our own in The Championship, then held it a little less. We’ve become the Man City of spending loads to buy players we’ve never heard of just for a laugh. And me and @Biz got banned from AirBnB after sharing a house boat before the Charlton game. A bit better than 2017 anyway. I got banned from an airline that year. Another tough away trip awaits for this calendar closer, but selfishly – I cannot bloody wait. Crazily, we haven’t played at Bramall Lane for over twelve years. Having lived within about a mile of the ground for over a decade, you can’t even begin to imagine how keenly anticipated this one is for me. Needless to say I’m going on a ginormous piss up and I hope to see many of you there. The Opposition Only out of League One for a season and a half, the Blades have impressed many with their “Total Yorkshire” tactics and can attack from any area of the pitch. Billy Sharp continues to defy all logic and actually be decent, and their keeper is a coin-throwing nob. I’d say United are a good bet for the play-offs, and fair dos to them – at least they aren’t bloody Wednesday.

The Ground The oldest professional football stadium in the world and it has the concourses to prove it. Bramall Lane was converted from an international cricket ground in the late 19th century but only got a proper fourth side during the 1970s. Centrally located in the city, the stadium is deceptively impressive and quite grand once you get inside, although surprisingly only holds 1300 more than Ewood Park. I imagine tickets will be available on the day, but beware – SHEFFIELD UNITED HAVE A £2 SURCHARGE. DAMN YOU WAGGOTT! Local Knowledge: Parking. A bloody nightmare. Being located near the city it’s busy on the streets around and there’s loads of resident parking schemes in place. United’s good gates means that space is at a premium everywhere so prepare yourself for 10-15 minute walks at best. A safe and central (read busy) option is The Moor Market Car Park (S1 4QW) and I believe with a match ticket costs just £3.50 all day. Milton St car park should be ok (S3 7WH) and there’s a Wetherspoons nearby too. If you get there early enough the area south of the ground can be good for on-street gambles (try Broadfield Road S8 0XL) – this will avoid the city centre bollocks via sat nav from the north too. Please don’t hold me to this one if it’s packed by the time you get there. Pubs. Sheffield is the ale capital of the world. One brewery for every 24,000 people. I can highly recommend making a day of it at least. All advice here is for people who know how to be discreet with colours and don’t feel compelled to sing before they get to the ground. If that isn’t you, just go to The Howard (S1 2LW), but the following are some of the finest boozers in the land. Parking towards the south? Sheaf View (S2 3AA), The Brothers Arms (S8 9TZ) Central? The Devonshire Cat (S1 4HG) From the station? The Sheffield Tap (Platform 1), Station/Moor Car Park? The Rutland Arms (S1 2BS). If you see a drunk Gok Wan lookalike in here come and say hi. BE AWARE OF SOME FANCY CRAFT BEER CITY PRICING Sheffield is a fantastic, friendly, football mad city and if you are popping down give me a shout and let’s all round off 2018 in style. If we get beat, as I expect we will – let’s hope that it is soundly and thoroughly within the first 85 minutes, so that Mowbray can keep his job. You never know though… we might be able to shove those Greasy Chip Buttys right down their Yaakshire throats. COYB
  22. Thought it was worth looking back on December and the chances missed and how it’s gone south! 1st December home v Sheffield Wednesday 4-2 win December started well with a relatively routine win over Wednesday bar a couple of scares with goals conceded 8th December away at Middlesbrough 1-1 draw A point would have been respectable here but they were down to 10 men and we went 1-0 up after 15 or so minutes only to sit back and concede, 2 points dropped! 15th December home to Birmingham 2-2 draw 2-0 up and coasting to a routine win then 2 goals in a matter of minutes late on and another 2 points dropped! 22nd December home to Norwich 0 - 1 loss A scrappy game and one that was pretty even for the most part until we made our subs including one of the worst cameos I can recall From Brereton and another late goal and us not threatening afterwards resulted in a loss, potentially another point thrown away. 26th December away at Leeds 3-2 loss Another tough place to go but again we were in a great position with 2 set piece Mulgrew goals getting us into a 90th minute lead only to then somehow concede 2 in injury time and come away with nothing! 29th December away at Sheffield United 3-0 loss Mass changes for this one and at half time it looked good with the players that came in performing, they then go down to 10 men and we make subs and then it all goes wrong with smallwood getting sent off and us conceding 3 in quick succession, another point (or more) slipped away! It’s grim looking back, in every game we’ve been in a great position to get a positive result and have come away with 5 points from the month and we’ve thrown away up to 9 points from strong positions! I know we have had a thread about where to go from here but I’m just wondering what’s gone wrong there, too much for it all to be coincidental, is it fitness? Complacency?
  23. Blackburn Rovers will start 2019 with another tricky fixture against West Bromwich Albion. Can we get the year off to a great start or will it more of the same? Rovers come into this match on the back of 3 defeats, in fact they have not won in five matches. As for West Brom, they come into the match in at least 5 game unbeaten streak, and hope to finish us off after the two sides drew at the Hawthorns earlier in the season. In this video, I preview the match, build up and more. Fancy some more?

  25. As we find ourselves in our worst run of form under Mowbray, what is an acceptable return from the next 6 games (Max 18 pts)? From my perspective: West Brom (1pt) This game is all about the Rovers manager and the performance he can get from his team, following a hugely disappointing run of 9 games. Show us that the fight is still there, show some mental strength not to crumble and get turned over. In our current form, a draw would be a good result but ship another 3 goals and lose, and the knives will be out again. Target: 1 point is the realistic target going in, if we can keep it tight we could win by the odd goal. Last defeat was against Hull in early November but have also lost to Wigan in October. West Brom have been prone to wobbles away from home. Millwall (3pts) The fact they are playing Ipswich on NYD could make this a big six pointer for us. Target: Definite 3 points required as a practise for any relegation fight. If we can’t get the necessary win then there is little hope if/when the pressure is really on in April/May. Ipswich (3pts) Rock bottom, ex-Rovers manager, grudge match and a bogey team. Similar story to us with 1 win and 2 draws in the last 13 games. If we lose to Ipswich without a win in the previous two games then that will be the final straw for me as far as Mowbray is concerned. Play Millwall and Rotherham first - so will want 3 or 4 points out of those two which would still see them remain bottom. Target: Mandatory 3 points required. No excuses. Hull City (1pt) A resurgent Hull play Bolton, Sheff Wed, and Villa before us and could expect 6 maybe 7 points, and up to 40 by the time we play them Target: a much tougher game than it should have been based on our own circumstances and form. 1 point required as a minimum. They have been in excellent on form but not unbeatable. Could be outsiders for the play-offs if they can keep up their momentum. Brentford (3pts) Draw specialists - nearly as much as Rovers were in the first 4 months of this season. Play Norwich, Stoke, Rotherham, and Sheff Weds before us. So could be in similar form to Rovers going in. Target: 3 points, another game to try to keep us from getting sucked into the mire. Bristol City (1pt) Play Stoke, Bolton, Forest, Boro and Swansea. Boro looks their toughest game. WDWDDDW since their last defeat (to Leeds) including draws with Norwich and Derby. But only just scraped past 9-man Rotherham 1-0. Target: Need to get a draw but could well get better with the right approach. There needs to be some momentum building in these fixtures. For me, no points from the next 3 games and he need to step aside, the job of saving us would be too big for him. Get 6 points, even 4 out of those first 9, and we carry on. Ipswich is a key game though. The following three games becomes a 4 from the back 9, minimum, and so on. We need to get some consistency back so a good start is important, and a win against Ipswich is absolutely vital. 10pts minimum - 3 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses (41pts total), and midtable security is well within reach. Any less than that and it could be a very uncomfortable couple of months for Mowbray - and Rovers fans.
