Champions League

Champions League (8/9)



  1. There are two things that are definitely not going to happen 😂
  2. He had 4 x £500 doubles on - the one with Beardsley first goal and Newcastle to win 3-0 was going to pocket him £52,000.....then Darren Peacock scored 😂
  3. He'd "only" actually bet £2000 - so not quite as stressful.
  4. I used to get stick when I was about 17/18 for saying there was no footballer I'd rather watch than Keith Gillespie on his day. He was unplayable when he was in the mood. Used to give full backs an absolutely torrid afternoon. He could just ghost past people. Unfortunately those days were too far and between, I suspect due to off field issues.
  5. If anyone turns up at Cardiff on Wednesday at 3pm next week - they're going to be very disappointed.
  6. I'm sure Graeme Souness made him lose about a stone in weight and he was a better player for it. In fact he did: Duff has shed the stone in weight since tough taskmaster Souness took over at Ewood Park a year and he is starting to feel the benefit of his new, trim figure. "I've always been a big eater and found it difficult not to pile on the weight," said Duff on the eve of tomorrow's big televised East Lancashire clash with big derby rivals Burnley.

  7. I seem to remember Damien Duff used to look knackered 25 minutes into a game and he turned out alright.
  8. I'm far from a fan of Lenihan - but we're better when he's in the team than when he's not. Since being back at this level (2018/19 season onwards): With Lenihan: W 48 (37.5%); D 35 (27.34%); L 45 (35.16%) Without Lenihan: W 6 (21.43%); D 6 (21.43%); L 16 (57.14%) I personally think he's a mistake waiting to happen and has awful distribution - but the stats do show we really struggle when he's unavailable.
  9. Just had a look and 8 of his 35 goals for Rovers were direct free-kicks. I actually think he was very good on set pieces in the earlier years, but these got worse over the years. He scored 3 direct free-kicks in 06/07 - followed by 4 in total over the next 6 seasons. I reckon he was at his peak between about 2005 and 2008 for us.
  10. I guarantee 90% of those that do less for that sort of money are in football though.
  11. Shearer was one of the best crossers of the ball I've seen at Rovers.
