  1. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the football universe, the Government's talking about having a review of how football is organised in this country. One idea they're said to be looking into is a similar system to the one that applies in Germany - and probably one reason why there were no German teams in the prototype E.S.L. - namely a significant amount of fans' representation on the Boards of football clubs. Let's hope that review does its job quickly and our owners are brought to realise that they can't just sit in Pune, apparently not giving a toss about This Great Club Of Ours.
  2. As I remember being told at school many years ago, "Don't call him an arsehole; an arsehole's useful." "Not one that big!"
  3. I've just looked - probably for the first time - our last three fixtures are against Huddersfield, Rotherham & Birmingham!! So the manager's motivational speeches will be needed as never before. Oh sorry; I forgot; he doesn't do them, does he?
  4. Especially if Mowbray & his pal Waggott are still around.
  5. That's why my Geordie pals told me that Benitez let him go so - comparatively - cheaply. They thought Rafa saw him as a good Championship forward but was one of those who couldn't make the transition to the Premier League.
  6. Can anybody on here please explain to me why, if the owners were so ruthless as to sack BFS after one bad result - that Man Utd game - they've been so incredibly lenient with Teflon Tony?
  7. I'm with you on this one, 47er. The word I've used to describe my relationship with what I used to call, "This Great Club Of Ours" is 'divorced'. Obviously the pandemic and the truncated season's part of that; but until the Trust sold us to our present owners, I always felt that the club was in good hands, run by Boards who had the same sort of affection for it as we, the fans, have. Now, it feels that we're in an era of benign[?] neglect, with owners that do the bare minimum for us, and can't be bothered even to sack the manager for his bizarre tactics leading to pathetic results. I
  8. The thought that's kept going through my mind this weekend is that, if Quality Control in the main part of our owners' 'Empire' is as abysmal as it is in our part, thank goodness I don't eat their chickens!
  9. I'd been shouting for Pearson for weeks now - long before Bristol City recruited him. Now that he's unavailable, how about the latest Rovers' Old Boy to actually win - scuse me for splitting an infinitive! - win something? And with apologies to anyone north of Hadrian's Wall: it may only be Scotland; it may only be their League Cup; but could we do worse than Callum Davidson? I can't remember Alec Neil actually winning that much - I may have forgotten; I've been on a cheaper Red tonight than I'm sure Mercer would ever consume! - before he rocked up at Deepdale.
  10. How's a 1-1 draw the "worst possible outcome"? Wouldn't a 1-0 defeat be worse than that? Or losing 2-1? And so on, ad infinitum.
  11. It's only now - 1.00 pm on Thursday - that I feel strong enough to read through this thread. I totally agree with your first paragraph, Pirate; you sum up exactly how I feel. The phrase I've used in conversations with friends to sum up how I feel these days about the club I've been following forever is "that I feel divorced from them." I don't 'do' iFollow - far too technical for this old fogey! - and I must confess that, for the first time since probably the Jim Iley era, I completely forgot that we were playing last night. I'm bemused by what's going on at Ewood and, behind th
  12. To do what? See if he can get us into the relegation zone???
