Friedel ahead of Tugay though? Tough call

  11. Rovers Trust has worked tirelessly over the last 8 years to persuade the FA, Premier League and English Football League in order to improve the safeguarding of the organisation and control of our Football Clubs. The Trust has decided to embrace a new medium and take the fight to the theatre to show the anxiety and devastation of being a true fan in these circumstances. Blackburn Rovers was an original founding member of the football league; therefore, the Rovers' Trust should also lead from the front and stage this production, not just for Rovers' fans, but also for the fans of clubs like Blackpool, Coventry, Wimbledon and Charlton etc. We feel it is time that the football authorities were made to sit up and take notice. We urge you to support this play and plight, providing a platform for the voice's of true fans to be heard in an exciting and revolutionary way. A sum of £9,000 is required to make this play happen; a national appeal which is supported by Henry Winter, one of the few prominent journalists to lend his support to football fans who feel a lost connection with their club. https://mobile.twitter.com/henrywinter/status/1092798519243689986 This is not a mere protest play. It’s a story about one fan’s feeling of depression and helplessness when there is a loss of localism, and the connection with his club begins to slip away. I’m sure we all know how that has felt at some point in the last 8 years, and we hope fans of other clubs who have had similar experiences of ownership to ours will support this message. If you wish to support this play, you can view the appeal brochure and donation pages from this link: https://www.roverstrust.com/2019/01/17/heart-scarf-soul-a-play-starring-a-blackburn-rovers-fan/ Please feel free to share far and wide!
  12. 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

    BRFC Loanee Watch

    Our youngster Brad Lyons is starting today for St Mirren at home against Hibs. Lining up with a certain Simeon Jackson. It’s the lunchtime game on Sky Sports. Keep your eye on number 14.
  15. A good day (almost) all round for Lancashire sides today. Lancashire County Stanley getting a creditable 1-1 draw at home to Charlton with Clarke cancelling out Ahearne-Grant’s 15th minute opener in the 78th minute. Chorley make it five wins from five to sit at the top of the National League North after a 1-0 win at home to fourth places Hereford. Bury nicked a point in the 90th minute at home to Forest Green Rovers. Aimson equalising after the away side saw former Blackburn Rover, Gavin Gunning, sent off in the 76th minute. Oldham got their first win with a 3-1 result against pointless Macclesfield Town. Bolton won 1-0 away at Reading which sees them up to fifth. Wigan snatched a draw from the clutches of victory after an injury time penalty was scored from the rebound. They had led 2-1 from the 31st minute after a Will Grigg penalty. Preston currently 0-0 at home to Stoke with 26 minutes gone. Burnley play at home to Watford tomorrow. Lancashire Coast Fleetwood 2 Rochdale 2 with a 95th minute leveller from Henderson’s second. Blackpool get a point in a 0-0 game away at hapless Shrewsbury. Fylde demolished Dover 4-0 to go third in the National League. Southport won 4-1 away at Nuneaton in an early basement battle in the National League North. Meanwhile Morecambe lost 1-0 away at Stevenage to ruin the clean sweep for Lanky sides and sit bottom of League Two after three games.

    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.
  22. 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?
