  1. What’s that got to do with the price of a loaf of bread? If you weren’t aware already, any expenditure on an Academy are totally excluded from expenditure calculations relative to FFP.
  2. The contract situation is fuck all to do with the owners, quite the contrary in fact! It’s down to rank bad Management, end of. That will be my only comment on the subject.
  3. I won’t be commenting at all Chaddy, please respect that for a number of reasons. Not least of which I’m not prepared to offer myself up to be shot at metaphorically speaking by naysayers, who thrive on promoting doom and gloom from behind a keyboard. We all know that for the past 10 years, things have been far from correct, me being me, that calls a spade a spade, they’ve been absolutely shite! All I’ll say is there are ‘green shoots’, and more importantly, reasons to be optimistic about the future., which I’ve no intentions whatsoever of elaborating on at this juncture but ‘keep the faith’! Don’t expect too much from this season, we need to ensure we stay up, get as many fans at Ewood as we can and seriously kick on after Christmas and beyond! WE ARE The Rovers!!!
  4. Thanks....that means a lot. I only ever post the truth.
  5. Apologies in advance and no offence intended but.....no shit sherlock and it's true, I wouldn't have said so otherwise!
  6. Sorry Gav, I get your drift but that would mean replacing one "pillock" with another.....yeh, I know Colin's record historically but I also know other stuff too!
  7. To quote Ludovic Faucher in 2018, "Qui nourrit la pizza des athlètes pour le déjeuner?" translated as "who feeds athletes pizza for lunch"?
  8. Mowbray was offered Simeon Nwankwo (Simy) for 800k Euros in May, from Serie A relegated side (Crotone) Salernitana. He is a 6'6" Nigerian centre forward, who was only a couple of goals behind Lukaku in goals scored in last seasons Serie A (scoring 20), playing in a team almost relegated at Christmas! The only downside to 'the gurning one', was that he is 29 years old! Not like we could have done with him or owt!.......go figure!
  9. We need a 'nasty, uncompromising, centre half and central midfielder, both with weight and experience too. We also need someone who knows where the onion bag is and can finish. Kaminski, good as he is, also needs to command the 6 yard box and grow a pair! All would complement our youth, it ain't rocket science but yet our current thick c**ts in situ, can't see it. We know nowt, aye, all right!
  10. Whilst not a celebrity as such, my best pal, Peter Thompsons father passed away aged 94, on 25 July and will be laid to rest tomorrow at Pleasington Crem, with a memorial service in Mellor afterwards. Bill Thompson was the owner of the fruit and veg stalls in Blackburn and other markets in the north west. He was also a staunch Rover and will be sadly missed. RIP Bill.
  11. Arma is a one season wonder for me. Get shut and re-invest the dosh.
  12. 👏 Well said and totally echos my thoughts and opinion.
  13. I won't be drawn mate but shame on you!
  14. I preach The Rovers gospel, worldwide...wherever I go....I'm proud of doing so. In 2015, prior to our FA Cup Tie with Liverpool, this was the level of support from Carsac, the small village in South West France where my wife and I lived. FFS, surely Blackburn and Darwen have enough spunk and interest to ensure that there are vast, socially distanced, numbers for some form of protest against coventrio for the last game of the season against 'Big Club'!?
  15. You cannot correlate 2011 to 2021, the 2 are linked but they are not. In 2011, I for one didn't know that Kean was a snake, nor did I know the involvement of the 'Sky induced' blubbering tantric dancer!....I was taken in by what could be and I still kick myself even now! 10 years on, it's different and experience, knowledge and extensive investigation, suggests that 'the stench' still remains and is perhaps more prevalent than it's ever been! If you are a true Rovers fan, don't hide behind a keyboard, listen to the bullshit spouted by 'drone pilots' also hiding behind keyboards, don't say "fuck all happened 10 years ago, why bother now"..... Get to Ewood 1pm Saturday! and I'll now jump off my soap box! WE ARE The Rovers!!!
  16. LOL, no I bloody didn't!😉🌹💙💟
  17. You’re kidding right? Ever played poker? If you have you were probably fleeced! It was a tongue in cheek, rhetorical question from Sparks: both he and I knew it and I appreciate and respect his knowledge and cheek! Time for you all to jump off the pot boys and show your true colours. I’m more than doing my bit, even though I don’t really have the time to do so. I’ll see how much you are all bothered or not early afternoon Saturday. I hope I’m not disappointed! That’s me done on here until next week, I’ve other ‘pots to wash’! WATR!!!
  18. I respectfully suggest that you check your facts regarding my potential travel arrangements! Don’t take things personal because it wasn’t, unless you choose to make it so. My general comment regarding bollocks stands, irrespective. Everyone knows if they look in the mirror whether ‘the cap fits’ or it doesn’t! I come from an era where I was always proud to be a Rover, win, lose or draw. For 11 years, I haven’t been but never say never, I want that feeling back!
  19. I don’t disagree Tony but in a financial context, it’s ‘beer money’. You know full well what really needs to happen.
  20. Always a can’t do attitude Ian, seldom, if ever, one of can do, why could that possibly be?....
  21. “We’ve won The Cup 3 times on the run, Champions of Division 1, Now we’re in The Champ but up we come, We are THE Blackburn Rovers!” Come on!!......
  22. I don't do twitter and have no intentions of doing so either, so thanks for the update and please crack on duffers left peg.
  23. A thousand voices plus venting their spleen for 2 hours outside Ewood is the biggest statement of all. Did United fans say "we'll not buy a shirt or two, that'll show 'em"?....did they fuck! Come on people, grow a pair and get real!!!
