  1. It’s looking like we are going to need a heck of a facelift in the close season - although Mowbray will no doubt still try to get tunes out of Gallagher and Brereton, presumably still playing both out wide. Personally I reckon there are five players in our senior squad that we should keep and the rest need replacing, either because loans end or simply because they aren’t good enough. There is a possibility that a different manager could breathe new life into a few others: Downing, Rothwell, Holtby, maybe even the two above but I just can’t see how anything is going to change without a change in the dugout.
  2. A video package here of Dolan's best bits from the last game against Doncaster. He had another great half, as he did against Blackpool and Fleetwood Town. Scarily, Mowbray played down his performance and claimed that Sam Gallagher would've come on ahead of Dolan if he had have been fit, and Dolan would've been down in Leeds with the Under 23's! Hopefully now TM can see the talent that they've acquired in Dolan.
  3. No lessons learned. No possession football. No plan B. No Joe Rothwell. No defence. No defenders signed. No method. No Ryan Nyambe. No positivity. No progress. No idea. You're a nice bloke, you've done a good job but this is as far you will take us. Don't ruin your legacy, do the right thing and step aside. Charlton are relegation fodder so what does that make us? Go.

    Season Tickets 2020-21

    Anything on tickets ?
  5. No it hasn't happened. Just a thought, probably hypothetical, should it happen and the clubs receive a commensurate reduction in TV money payments to be then distributed amongst lower League clubs? The whole structure of the professional game is in danger of disappearing. Should there be a short term redistribution of wealth for the good of the game? The leagues going to the government with the begging bowl whilst players are earning £250k a week and multi million pound agents fees still being paid along with ludicrous transfer fees can't be right. What difference would it make to a player earning £10 million a year to have that reduced to £5 million? What are your thoughts?....

    Best Team

    If everyone was fit, what does everyone think would be our best starting line up, and what do people think Mowbray would consider his best team? Not factoring in further arrivals. I would say mine would probably be this below: Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Ayala Williams Travis Holtby Dolan Dack Rothwell Armstrong If it has to be 4-3-3, I would probably say: Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Ayala Williams Travis Evans Holtby Dolan Dack Armstrong In easier games, I would go Rothwell for Evans there and move Travis inside, and also it is early days for Dolan, maybe Brereton, Chapman or Rothwell could eye that place. I think Mowbrays would be the above with Bell, Johnson and Gallagher for Williams, Evans and Dolan.

    Final League Position 2020-2021 - Poll

    Where are we finishing then lads and lasses? With the squad coming together and hopefully no major outgoings what are our chances of a tilt at promotion?

    About Travis

    Everybody talks now about Cunningham and about Johnson and yes defenetly they are doing a greatand repeat great work but... I feel we ate forgoting some one thst has made a very good work indeed and that's Travis...he is improving and growing up with every single chance that he has had on last matches... I'm sure he will be one of the most important players in our roster in a couple of years... Now...talking about Cardiff it's go8ng to be very important if we want to have more and better chances if we try to keep and to steal the ball as much as we can and i have seen mote than one how Travis sacrifices and helps on the bottom of pitch as well #TheMexicanRover #COYBB

    94-96 home shirt question

    I have an interest in Blackburn player issue shirts and have acquired one or two So I always thought it pretty clear that the 94-95 home shirt had an embroidered crest and simple asics badge The 95-96 home shirt had a new crest with blue border and an extra A was added to the asics badge Then I came across this photo. It seems to have best of both worlds, with the asics badge with extra A from 95-96 but an embroidered crest from 94-95 My question is when was that photo taken then?

    BBC Sport

    It's Tuesday 1st September 23:10 hours. The BBC Sport website for scores and fixtures has the results of today's games EFL Trophy and Finland league. There is a raft of F A Cup Qualifying games that kicked off between 19:30 and 20:00. Not a single result is shown. To me this is shocking coverage and reporting by the BBC. It IS the F A Cup after all. I despair of the modern generation who don't seem to give a toss about getting information out to those who want it. Don't give a toss about "doing things correctly and meticulously". Another (justified) rant from an old timer.

    The State of Ewood Park!

    What has happened to the general maintenance of Ewood of Park..does anyone at the Club care anymore?. We were gifted the new Ewood Park from Jack Walker,a legacy dear to all Blackburn Rovers fans and the People of Blackburn in general. 'We will respect the Jack Walker legacy' fawned Madame Desai...yeah right! The current state of the Stadium is not acceptable,I urge fellow Board Members,Fans Forum and even visiting Telegraph Reporters to get involved on this thread and issue. Further photos will follow as hopefully it will shame someone at the Club into taking action,It's shameful and embarrassing for a Club of our Stature...PLEASE VOICE YOUR CONCERN.

    Lancashire Telegraph

    https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17664143.what-we-can-learn-from-the-stats-around-rovers-right-back/ The discussion about the right back position is on the appropriate thread but just a shout out for Rich Sharpe and the LT. This sort of analysis article is exactly the sort of quality journalism that keeps local papers alive. I find myself clicking onto the LT for news and views about Rovers increasingly. Great stuff- long may it continue.

    So, after losing a goalkeeper capable of challenging for automatic promotion and replacing him with a season long loan, Mowbray has a decision to make again this Summer. From the patter recently it seems that Brighton “want Walton back” - which is probably code for: we are looking to sign him for an undisclosed fee but want to make it look as though we had to work hard to get him because of how in demand he is. Personally I’d argue we need better. He has a decent stop in him on his day and when the ball is within arms reach. Sadly his day isn’t often enough and he seems to struggle to get over if the ball is played anywhere out of reach - particularly on free kicks, maybe a decent gk coach could fix this with foot work. In his defence, ironically, he is behind a pretty average defence, also with no depth, and has been for much of the season. In terms of alternatives there are precious few noises. Joe Hart and Karl Darlow seem to keep coming around but other than that no strong rumours. We also need to replace Leutwiler who didn’t push Raya and doesn’t push Walton, and seems more than happy to be a non-playing member of staff, so whatever happens it would be very surprising if we didn’t bring in at least one new man between the sticks. I wouldn’t be averse to bringing in Walton as a number two with an upgrade at number one but this seems unlikely. With this in mind, let’s take a look at keepers who come from the stable of Rovers existing player agencies - which seems to be our default - as we can see, it’s a pretty incestuous business! Unique Sports Management (Bennett, Graham, Bell) James Montgomery - Flyde - age 26 Michael Cooper - Plymouth - 20 Daniel Graham (!) - Ayr United - 20 Max Johnson - Ex St Johnson (MU stock) - 21 Karl Darrow - Newcastle - 29 Jordan Archer - Fulham - 27 Seny Dieng - QPR - 25 Matija Sarkic - Villa - 22 Christy Pym - Peterbrough - 25 Dillon Barnes - QPR - 24 Nathan Bishop - Man U - 20 Major League Sports (Lenihan) No keepers Crown Football / Simon Conning (Gallagher, Magloire) Christian Walton (!) - Brighton - 24 Chris Maxwell - Blackpool - 29 Midas Sports (Nyambe - Ex Crown 🤔) Matt Macey - Arsenal - 25 Sam Walker - Reading - 28 Adam Parkes - Watford - 20 Stellar Football (Armstrong) Many ridiculous names with upwards of £15m fees that I won’t list Nick Pope - Burnley - 28 Fraser Forster - Southampton - 32 Sergio Romero - Man U - 33 Wayne Hennessey - Palace - 33 Jed Steer - Villa - 27 Runar Alex Runarsson - Dijon - 25 Eloy Room - Columbus Crew - 31 Caoimhin Kelleher - Liverpool - 21 Wes Foderingham - Sheff U - 29 David Marshall - Wigan - 35 Frank Fielding - Millwall - 32 Kieran Westwood - Sheff W - 35 Joe Fryer - Boro - 24 Nathan Trott - West Ham - 21 Robert Sanchez - Brighton - 22 Base Soccer (Samuel, Davenport, Butterworth) Daniel Schmidt - St Truiden - 28 Lawrence Thomas - Melbourne - 28 Mark Gillespie - Newcastle - 28 Joe Lewis - Aberdeen - 32 Stefan Marinovic - Wellington - 28 Conor Hazard - Celtic - 22 Luke Southwood - Reading - 22 SEM Group (Smallwood) Shwan Jalal - Chesterfield - 36 Florent Chaigneau - Montagnarde - 36 Wasserman (Downing, plus now Brereton and Chapman - both ex-Key Sports who also managed Peter Whittingham) Zack Steffen - Man C - 25 David Button - Brighton - 31 Scott Carson - Man C - 34 George Long - Hull - 26 Nick Marsman - Feyenord - 29 Simon Moore - Sheff U - 30 Adam Bogdan - Ferencvaros - 32 Lee Nicholls - MK Dons - 27 Omni-Sports (Hart, Wharton, Carter) Neil Etheridge - Cardiff - 30 Ben Amos - Charlton - 30 Jonathan Mitchell - Derby - 25 Jordan Smith - Forest - 25 Ben Wilson - Coventry - 27 Jack Walton - Barnsley - 22 Sam Hornby - Bradford - 25 Murdock Sports Group / Jackie Evans (Evans, Travis, Rothwell, also Travis 🤔 ) Jason Steele - Brighton - 29 Side note Platinum One Group used to manage Derrick Williams, now managed by ‘relatives’ and now coincidentally out of the team. Alan Manus - Shamrock Rovers - 38 (Taken from transfermarkt data) Any standouts - or other suggestions?

    Surprised Aderabioyo doesn't have his own thread. Quietly did what he was brought in for today but the system didn't gell. With Laporte out long term and City Central defense repeatedly vulnerable today, might he be recalled early?

    Match Time Machine

    If you had a time machine and could travel back in time to watch just one match live (even if for a second time), which would it be and why?
  20. How are people feeling ahead of the current season? Has anyone managed to maintain even a slither of excitement? Just personally totally disillusioned with the whole situation. Of course primarily regarding the pandemic which is out of anyones hands. Maybe part of the season will be watchable in stadiums. Maybe not. Ans if it is, all very sparse. All very diluted. No singing allowed, no atmosphere. No sitting with mates. No last minute winners followed by going mad. No drinks in a packed pub or the concourse. Sitting for hours with a mask on. No away days. No away fans at Ewood. There is a feeling of stagnation with the manager to chuck in for me too. The owners seem to have now totally forgotten about us, even more so than before. Not even a suggestion that we will strengthen. The incredibly high possibility of having a kid on loan in net again. Our assets will inevitably leave in the next 12 months. No communication from the club. No further idea on how we can watch the games. Just for example saw the cup draw. Usually id be hoping for specific games, maybe Harrogate away or similar. As it is, I didnt give a shit. Probably will be the same on fixture release day on Friday. Id usually eagerly anticipate the opening day fixture, weve had some horrible starts in recent years but it doesnt dampen excitement. Losing at Southend, going 3 down at home to Norwich in 25 minutes, last years frustration at home to Charlton. And then theres looking out for specific away days, Preston and the day out there. Im just interested to know if I am the exception and if people are out there desperately counting down the days until the new season.

    Worst Rovers signing ever?

    Just saw this topic on Twitter. Thought it would be lockdown fun. Apparently City fans think Santa Cruz. Funny old World.
  22. Joe Rothwell seems to be the one player who nobody can agree on, I think Harry Chapman seems to fall into the category too, but when it comes to Rothwell, you hear so many contrasting opinions on him. Some talk about his ability on the ball, but others have been frustrated with his final product too. What do you think? Is he a bit of a myth or is the hype real? Should he be starting games in 2020/21 or do you believe he's better off the bench?
