  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

    Happy Kean Out Day

    7 years to the day since the imposter left, as we continue to endure his rotten legacy. Well done and thanks to the “1%” who never gave up fighting and maintained the conditions which ultimately forced him out. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/19736471 https://amp.theguardian.com/football/2012/sep/28/steve-kean-resign-blackburn-rovers We won’t be rid of his stench until we are back in the PL but having worried that he would never go, the relief on 29th September 2012 was palpable. Never forgive, never forget.

    Lewis Holtby

    Lewis Holtby situation has been referenced in the Summer Transfer Window thread, but as we're no longer in that window, and these is a bit of an 'odd one out' I feel as though it deserves its own thread. Yesterday Holtby was on the move, catching a flight to who knows where. How does everyone feel about his potential arrival?
  5. As Secretary of the Fans Forum I have been approached by a documentary film maker today who is making a film for the BBC about young men's mental health issues and the role both playing and watching football can have. His email outlining the aims of the film is below. It is planned to show the film as part of the BBC's coverage of the FA Cup this year. If anyone is either interested in helping with this or knows someone who is can you please send me a private message and I will put you in touch. Obviously you don't have to be a member of the Fans Forum, or for that matter even a Rovers fan. This landmark film will focus on men’s mental health through the prism of football. The film hopes to highlight the fact that we all have mental health and encourage more men to feel comfortable talking about their mental health. One aspect we're looking at is how supporting a football team can have a positive impact on men that may be dealing with mental health issues. I'm travelling to Blackburn on Thursday next week to spend some time with a group called 'Blokes United' that arrange football meet-up sessions to any lads in the area that may need an outlet and some support. I thought it couldn't hurt to talk to some Rover's fans while i'm up there. If there were any members of the Rovers Fans Forum that you think may be interested in talking to us about the programme and if they had a story that they'd be interested in sharing, please feel free to pass on my details.
  6. 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.

    Potential new keeper
  16. Do I care if we lose? Not really if it doesn't impact on league performances. Team I would like to see Walton (I don't think he needs a rest and the more he plays the better imo) Bennett Tosin Grayson Hart Evans Buckley Chapman Rothwell Butterworth Brereton
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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/
  20. 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.

    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
  23. 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)
  24. 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!
