  1. No mudslinging and no ridiculous picture-cropping, children.
  2. I thought a new thread would be in order for the new Championship season. It looks like Middlesbrough are set to appoint Woodgate as their new boss. I'm praying he finds a role for Stewart Downing. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11680/11740080/jonathan-woodgate-set-to-take-over-as-middlesbrough-boss Also Steve Cooper looks like he will be named as the new as the new Swansea mananger. I know Steve well as I am close friends with his dad. I think it's a shrewd appointment and wish him all the best apart from when we play them. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48541951
  3. I remember Kevin with a lot of fondness. He was rovers version of David Fairclough. Don’t really know what happened to him after leaving Ewood, but he certainly made an impression on me when he was here. RIP Kevin. Loved watching you.
  4. Rovers offering £10,000 as a cash prize for one lucky winner if the ST target of 10,000 is met! https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2019/august/10k-for-10k--the-rovers-season-ticket-prize-draw/
  5. One of the Holy Trinity, with Dunny and Duffy http://www.polarispublishing.com/book/matt_jansen What do you do when the world is at your feet . . . and then suddenly it isn’t? Matt Jansen had it all. He was young, quick, audaciously skilful and, at the turn of the millennium, regarded as one of the most intelligent attacking talents in English football. His potential seemed boundless. After bursting onto the scene with Carlisle in 1997 and helping his hometown club win promotion, Sir Alex Ferguson had tried to lure him to Old Trafford – but foreseeing only a bench spot at United, Jansen instead opted for Steve Coppell’s Crystal Palace. In 1998, he moved to Blackburn, and after blasting them back to the Premier League he earned a place in Sven Goran-Eriksson’s England squad on the back of a 16-goal season that included a strike in the final of the League Cup, which Blackburn won. At 24 Jansen was widely tipped to be part of England’s squad at the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, but Eriksson instead surprised many with his conservative selection of Martin Keown over the rising star; Keown wouldn’t play a single minute at the tournament and England would crash out to ten-man Brazil – but Jansen didn’t see a minute of it. While England battled it out in the Far East, Jansen had taken a holiday to Rome where he was involved a serious traffic accident. He suffered a brain haemorrhage and slipped into a six-day coma. Jansen survived and, astonishingly, he was back playing for Blackburn just four months later. But while his body may have recovered, his mind had not. In the shadow of the accident, he was unable to recapture the instinctive genius or the bullet-proof self-confidence that had previously defined him. This was a hidden breakdown – nothing that could be picked up by a fitness test or fixed on an operating table. As Jansen’s career as an elite footballer slipped away from him, he started to discover more about what had happened to him and how he could recover not only as an athlete, but as a person. This is the story of a career destined for the stratosphere, cruelly snatched away by the vagaries of fate. Brilliant, bold, and at times brutal in its honesty, this powerful tale of shattered dreams and a life rebuilt is a testament to an inspiring, unconquered soul.
  6. 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.
  7. The WMC Supporters Group met last Wednesday and will be meeting again at Ewood Park WMC at 7pm on Wednesday 28 August. Great new initiatives in the pipeline. All welcome.

    John Lowey RIP

    Sad to hear of John Lowey passing away this week aged 61. Never will I forget the rocket he scored v Forest at home and Sheffield Wed away when I was on the home end going crazy. RIP John
  11. Like it says on the tin. Please post the link in here and then also in the transfer discussion thread or vice versa. (Can this be pinned please @K-Hod or @J*B - cheers)
  12. Having tried to add appropriate news from that event into each thread I've decided to post all the info I gathered from the day into its own section. £1.3m refurbishments of all the hospitality lounges to take place over coming months Over £2m spent on Category One status for the Academy (further £1m was a grant from government) Significant amount (in the millions) spent on infrastructure at STC (analysis booths/scouting software) Premier Suite being done first after first international break, ready for third home game of the season European scouting network to continue to grow The new Sodexo food in the concourse is a little more expensive than the old stuff, but significantly more option Loaded fries one of the many new options available New LED/TV screens in food concourses and brand new EPOS till system Match/event themed prices and promotions on food due to new system will take place We've got a brand new pie manufacturer, smaller niche business in the local area All the concourses will be completed by Friday in time for Charlton game Elliott Bennett says Tosin Adarabioyo hasn't been introduced to the squad - they don't know what's happening with that one either Charlie Mulgrew says team are quietly hoping for a top 6 finish, and spoke specifically about his mentoring of Dan Butterworth and JRC Little mention of specifics but ideas still snowballing about The Riverside and plans for the future of the stand Plan is to have several 'One Rovers Day' type events like Stoke (H) last season and have lots of kids coming in for free again And finally, for anybody who does attend hospitality/boxes at Ewood, the new Sausage Rolls are ridiculously nice!
  13. Shaker

    Bury FC.

    Hi all-lifelong Shaker (55) here. Pretty desperate times at Gigg Lane with our previous owner vastly over-spending and our new one proving 'difficult' to say the least. Suffice to say we have a winding up order deferred to the 19th June and have started a crowd funding appeal. https://www.gofundme.com/save-bury-football-club Clearly we all want to win on the day when we play each other, but that aside if you can assist one of your neighbour's and like yourselves one of Lancashire's most historic clubs it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    FF Minutes July

    Just been reading through the FF minutes from early July. Couldn't find much discussion on here about them so I thought I'd provide a link/thread. https://www.rovers.co.uk/siteassets/pdfs/fans-forum-minutes/8th-july-2019.pdf This was an idea mentioned which I think could be a great idea.
  16. Johnson promoted to first team technical coach by Mowbray and head of player development.
  17. I'm always interested in hearing new/old music that has passed me by. There is no greater joy than a banging tune. 😍 So if you love something shove it in here. I am currently listening to this beauty:-
  18. https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/news/17776802.netflix-football-drama-english-game-due-filmed-stoneclough/ The series draws on the formation of Blackburn Rovers FC, a founding member of The Football League, and Darwen FC
  19. Firstly, thank you for reading this thread, as I am aware there are quite a few similar topics that go on. I am hopeful that the football link involved will capture some attentions!!We are three serving police officers from Sheffield, South Yorkshire and in July, we will be taking on the challenge of visiting all 92 football league grounds in 92 hours. Within our trio, we have an Owl, a Blade and Spurs fan (That generally gets asked quite quickly!)One car, 3 cops, 92 grounds, 92 hours, 2,400 miles. We are taking on this challenge to raise money for The Children’s Hospital Charity, which supports Sheffield Children’s Hospital and serves the whole of the North of England and much wider in some circumstances. www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ninetytwo-in-92 Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of just three standalone specialist children’s hospitals in the UK. More than 269,000 patient journeys are made to the hospital each year and its work changes children’s lives from across the UK and around the world every day. My own daughter was born with a heart defect which I have previously discussed on here when raising money for the hospital who looked after her welfare amazingly for a couple of years and we now have friends and colleagues who have their own children currently being treated in the Leukemia ward of the hospital. We are so lucky to have this amazing facility here to give people the best care possible.We will be driving over 2,400 miles in a car and riding bikes to reach the London clubs. We will be eating and sleeping (not much) in the vehicle to complete the challenge to make sure we stick to our 92-hour limit.We will start this challenge at Barnsley Football Club at 8pm on Friday 12th July before arriving back at Bramall Lane at 4pm on Tuesday 16th July.We are trying to raise £25,000 for this amazing charity and we would love it if you could support us in any way possible. In the last few weeks we have set up social media profiles on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook as can be seen below. Any donation that anyone can give would be massively appreciated. If you are not in a position to donate then any help you can give through retweets, shares and likes, etc to help us gain as much exposure as possible would also be appreciatedEvery single penny that is made in charitable donations will go directly to transforming the Cancer and Ward at the Hospital.Thank you once again for reading our post and if this is something you are willing to support we would really appreciate it.Give us a wave as we get to and go through Blackburn!!If there is any chance this could be pinned that would also be really appreciated.Scott Sarson, James Thorpe and Jamie Hendersonjustgiving.com/ninetytwo-in-92twitter.com/ninetytwo_in_92www.facebook.com/92inNinetytwowww.instagram.com/ninety2in92

  23. https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/september/a-to-z-ryan-nyambe/ A Q&A with the delightful young man, and world-class full back, who goes by the name of Ryan Nyambe (or RyNy to his friends). My only gripe (apart from him being a Manure fan) is the following answer to the question 'what is the strangest thing you've seen': "There’s quite a few strange things. I remember driving in Wythenshawe one night and just saw a guy laying with his bike. It was late at night and I remember thinking it was a bit odd!" I think he'd fallen off Ryan and you were meant to ring for an ambulance. Apart from that a top man and a full back who is getting better with every season. Hoorah for Ryan!!
