Fans Friendly Squad

  1. Tuesday night it's North End v Rovers. Surely it's about time we gave them a bloody nose!
  2. First game after the international break we face The Hatters at an empty Kenilworth Road. It's the first of a series of 4 away games in the next 6. North End away is on the Tuesday after, with Barnsley and Millwall at home to follow and Brentford and Bristol City away after that. A tough series of games where the aim should surely be a minimum haul of 12 points, starting with 3 here, if we are to have serious aspirations of promotion.
  3. Well it's Thursday and we've a 'home' match the day after tomorrow and thought someone had better start a thread. If ever there was a must win game, then surely this is it. Amongst the current state of depression regarding Rovers, I'm struggling to come up with a line up. Some of my distinct memories of games v QPR are Shearer's thunderbolt goal that bounced in after almost breaking the crossbar, Sutties winner at Loftus Road and wondering who that lanky, 6'7" bloke was, with chicken like legs, as he came on as sub at Loftus Road. It was Peter Crouch. Does that annoying QPR
  4. Now then, next match brings bonny Boro to Ewood, managed by the Neil Warnock who predictably has instantly turned the club around from last season's relegation candidates to one now sitting in the top 6. "Colin" is not everyone's cup of tea but he's one of my favourite managers, a tough nut who takes no nonsense and produces pragmatic, tough teams that are hard to beat and get results. His record of promotions is second to very few, if any. I stand to be corrected but I think Colin was actually pencilled in for the Rovers job when the club changed its mind at the mind at the 11th hou
  5. Swansea away not a happy hunting ground. Remember them terminally destroying our back to back promotion hopes in 1981in a sardine packed Vetch. Boy we gave Leighton James some stick and he replied with a fine goal- he was a really classy player. To Saturday and I have hope but realistically we are going to get beaten and perhaps badly. By all accounts Swansea have really clicked in their most recent games. We will also find out how bad our covid crisis so am expecting a very odd line-up and to be forced to discover if Aynsley Pears is actually any good. At least there are the un
  6. This season, it has been possible to follow the Rovers from the comfort of your front room with a beer for a measly tenner on iFollow. Plus the quality of our play so far - we are an attacking team - and the hatful of goals we'r currently scoring and chances we are creating. This adds up to a boon for the club. Fans who normally wouldn't attend Ewood maybe because of distance, other commitments or who have simply got out of the habit have seen possbily some of the best football in the last ten years. The club couldn't have timed the situation better if it had tried. Hopeful
  7. The David Speedie derby. Play like we did Wednesday, cut out the sloppy defending, and we can be confident of a win. Coventry 1 Rovers 3
  8. Crucial game coming up on Wednesday night at Vicarage Road against the newly relegated Hornets. After 5 games, 7 points and it'is absolutely mid table esq and one point from 2 latest home games has been disappointing to say the least. How often after 2 decent performances and results, are we swiftly brought crashing down to earth by two equally poor displays. All the new signings should all be available for Mowbray to freshen up his squad. Early days granted but for me it's a must win game on Wednesday. I couldn't begin to guess on the team selection but I'll start us off
  9. I broke my duck of starting match threads which produce a win with our 3-2 victory at Cardiff in the twilight zone in May so I hope I am not resurrecting previous perennial bad luck by starting this thread... Being a contrarian.. Forest changing Managers at least means TM won't have spent two weeks obsessing about what Forest are going to do and disappearing up his own tailpipe producing a team and tactics that totally bemuse the out of position Rovers players. Unless he is Mystic Mog, he won't know what Hughton is going to conjure up from that huge Forest squad which will most likel
  10. Cardiff (H) - Saturday 3rd October 2020 Cardiff City at home. A bang average start for the Bluebirds, with losses to Sheffield Wednesday and Reading sandwiching a win over struggling Nottingham Forest. Greg Cunningham is expected to play left-back for them which should certainly be interesting. Kieffer Moore will provide an aerial threat through the middle, with Junior Hoilett off the left always being dangerous. For Rovers, Joe Rankin-Costello won't play after picking up a hamstring injury. Bradley Dack, Daniel Ayala, Sam Gallagher and Corry Evans all expected to not travel to Ewood
  11. Derby away next week might seem a tough game when the fixtures come out but theres no reason why we shouldnt go there targeting a win. 2 losses for them so far at home to Reading and at Luton, and seemingly problems at both sides of the pitch. They signed Kamil Jozwiak who we have been linked with and who set up a goal before going off with a knock, as did Jack Marriott who went off after scoring his first goal in a while. Would like to see a new LB in this week but based on Mowbrays comments it seems we are having a re think in terms of transfers so assuming we dont add, I would go:
  12. The return of Gareth Ainsworth. Rovers have been refused to become a pilot scheme for this game, so no fans will be attending. ST holders will be able to watch via iFollow as part of their ticket, I assume everybody else can if they pay for a £10 match pass. If you do intend on buying a match pass buy it in advance and test it out or risk iFollow chaos close to the game. Wycombe are going to want a fight. Sadly, I suspect after not playing in 2020, Ayala won't be ready for a fight. Travis, our head fighter, is injured for the foreseeable. With that in mind, I would go.. Kamins
  13. Newcastle fairly comprehensively undid West Ham and looked far more potent in a long time so a bit of a thrashing might be on the cards tomorrow night. We have been drawn against them rather often in the past 30 years so getting progress past them is rather over due. Just hope Ben is not asked to take a penalty... I would stick with Saturday's line up but fancy we will see Tony's tombola.
  14. Bournemouth won 5-3 in a friendly v today. Not the ideal opening fixture in terms of difficulty. With Mowbray pulling his finger out and getting some defenders in prior seemingly an impossibility, would personally go with this: Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Wharton Williams Travis Evans Holtby Brereton Armstrong Rankin Costello Subs: Eastham, Gallagher, Chapman, Rothwell, Buckley, Davenport, Johnson Obviously Dolan very unlucky to miss out on a weak looking bench and am happy for him to be sub over either Chapman or Rothwell really. Dont want to see Bell henc
  15. Doncaster Rovers (H) - Carabao Cup Round One - Saturday 29th August 2020 - 15:00 Kick-Off @ Ewood Park Streaming: Game will be available to view but no news whatsoever on who will be able to access and how given that Rovers haven't released any club communications for months. SkySportsNews will be showing the goals at they go in I would imagine, which may be a good option for those with the service. Edit: available via iFollow Injuries: Ryan Nyambe (Confirmed), Sam Gallagher (Doubt), Dack (Confirmed). I guess one of the main questions involves a certain Tyryhs Dolan, who's pla
  16. https://www.lcfc.com/news/1788953/https%3A%2F%2Fwww.lcfc.com%2F free link to watch the match
  17. Blackpool - (A) - Bloomfield Road - Tuesday 25th August 2020 - Streaming Options Available through Blackpool website https://www.blackpoolfc.co.uk/news/2020/august/new-live-streaming-service-for-everton-and-blackburn-games/ For streaming info. £5.99 match pass seemingly but all will be confirmed before kick-off. Looks less likely that Rovers will be permitted to stream this for free on YouTube as we did at Fleetwood. Mowbray expects players to get a bit more game time in this one, so maybe we won't see two entirely different XI's for each half. Joe Rothwell is said to only have a kno
  18. Fleetwood Town (A) - Highbury Stadium - Saturday 22nd August 2020 - Pre-Season Friendly Streaming Information Unavailable, Rovers to inform fans nearer the time, Everton game confirmed to be streaming on their platform. Interesting pre-season ahead of us now, with Fleetwood Town away in a weeks time. When the "Pre-Season" thread was first devised I said I thought a game against Joey Barton would be perfect for us, all this talk of Premier League opposition and testing ourselves against these big teams, but the reality is that we struggle against teams that sit back, defend in an organised
  19. Broke my voodoo by Rovers winning at Cardiff. We lost at home to.Luton in a Mowbray horror show when selection tactics subs and motivation were all wrong to.set up this absolute must win game ... For Luton. I fancy us to win this and get close to the 5 Reading scored at Kenilworth Road. Luton are a very limited side and even with injuries we probably have two complete elevens who could beat them. I would like to see yesterday's starting team with Buckley in place of Johnson. I fancy Luton tactics will be to keep it tight and profit from the inevitable Rovers mistakes.
  20. There is a game on Saturday at 3pm. We are in it. Reading are also in it. This is an absolute must-play game. It's crucial that we play this game. For Reading also, it's extremely important that they play this game. Mid-table mediocrity bragging rights are on the line. If we don't field a team that can play this game, we will have no chance of achieving our dream of fulfilling our fixture list. The stakes are now very real. I'm hoping we can field a team that definitely includes Bennett. This hope is the best way to make sure I'm not disappointed. It might be best if he plays in goal
  21. how does everyone think we will do? any lineup thoughts? Millwall recently have been playing 3-4-2-1 formation.
  22. Tough game. But I expect the same team. What do people think?
  23. In an alternative universe before our kick off on 27 June, this looked like it could be the decisive battle for 6th place. Well Cardiff need to keep winning to remain in 6th. My doing match threads has a 100% record of defeats for Rovers since coming up so I have started this one deliberately to put us out of our misery. Not going to hazard a team selection beyond Downing at Left Back.
  24. Dont know if this is the best place to put it. But I really think at the moment we are at a crossroads in terms of naming our best side. I sort of understand the thinking behind this new elaborate formation to an extent but it needs to be binned, Holtby like Dacks influence is massively compromised when you ask him to essentially lead the line. Of course we have to try and get that unlikely 6th spot as long as we mathematically can but perhaps we also need to be trying to finally come up with a successful way long term to bring together an imbalanced squad. What formation do we play?
  25. Looks like Travis will be fit for the game but Wiiliams, Bell, Evans injured. Brereton banned. Buckley is back.
