Fans Friendly Squad

  1. So last year was simply depressing. 2-1 up into added time and somehow lost the game. What are people's expectations this year? Leeds looking a little less potent this time round, with Marco Bielsa's over-reliance on Patrick Bamford being a downfall in some games, as he's not really banged them in this season. I can't see us keeping a clean sheet here, although I was massively impressed with Adarabioyo last time out vs Sheffield Wednesday. International break follows this one, so has the feeling of a pretty important fixture. For me we have to adopt a similar ethos to our away game a
  2. Tough one, I'd go for the XI that started against Huddersfield but I'm sure TM won't see it that way. Anyone going to this one, anyone know how many we've sold, and finally, what team would you go with?
  3. Well seeing as no one has started a topic about our next home game I thought I may as well give it a go (although after watching our capitulation last Saturday at QPR I can’t say I’m too enthusiastic). Living a few miles away from the John Smith’s stadium means I keep a close eye on what’s going on there and up to the last couple of weeks have been pretty pleased with their results. A bit of karma after fielding a weakened team at Birmingham in our relegation season? Well maybe not! Just a bit of a coincidence here, back in the 70’s I broke my leg playing at Brockhall, a good few
  4. Anyone know if tickets are still available? On Rovers website it can't find any? I would be surprised if we sold out, but then we always do have a good following in London...
  5. We have posts discussing the next five games but in the spirit of one game at a time let's talk about Luton. By the way I will settle for five 1-0 wins now, not being greedy or anything. There are plenty expecting us to hammer an outfit which was in League 2 when we were sending expeditionary forces around the nether regions of League 1. And to be honest, having watched a bit of Luton's recent games I have to agree Luton look to be vulnerable for a thrashing at Ewood the way they play. Assuming Tosin's knock is recovered and Rothwell has no more guts left to throw up I would pla
  6. So there is an evening with Matt Jansen on Friday 27th of this month. Tickets are £15 and £10 for the 1875 crew. anybody going ?
  7. Upcoming away game at Reading. 800 Tickets Sold for this one, with on the day ticket sales not incorporated. What do we think, can we improve on last years performance at Reading? Should Travis come back into the side? Or should Buckley continue?
  8. Well pals a very importantmatch to us we are on a bad position on table but we only need 3 more points to be on top again... I know that much of you aren't happy with the development from our Rovers by far but let's face it what did you spect against many of the stongest rivals in this division...i think we had showed actually that we have a enough competitive squad and that we can aspire to top 10 this season... Millwall is the first of some much more doable matches i belive on my colors and i know we can do it. We only need to pass the ball constantly and quick enough keep foc
  9. Again, fair prices from the baggies, top priced ticket at £20 is very good. Whos on that one?
  10. I thought this thread had been started, but I can't find it. Apologies if I missed it Nice game to have to test where we are at. A win here and things will be looking bright. I still have concerns about our strength in depth in some areas, but I think we have a better 11-14 than last season. Huge pity Cunningham can't play, I was getting used to us having a 75% Irish backline A few dilemmas for Mowbray now, the left back position one, but the the main one being does he start Graham. Any word on what Breretons injury is? I would go with the following. I just think Bell is so s
  11. I couldn't see anything for this so thought would try and get some debate going as it is only just over 24 hours away I am going to go for a dull 0 - 0 I think here. I am going to go for a shock and say that we will for once name the same XI
  12. So, what are peeps expectations for this one? Based off of the Oldham game it's difficult to guess who'll play. Most will agree Cunningham looks better than Bell, but the fact we've shipped Two Goals in all three games so far would suggest perhaps we should be looking to play defensively on Saturday? Graham up top? What would you go with?
  13. Two founder members of the Premier League. Both with 100% losing records to date. Something will have to give Tuesday night. For Oldham, this is a free hit so I expect them to field their strongest side and come at us. Even a L2 side might embarrass or current defensive nightmare so I half expect Rovers to be caught napping in this one. For us, injuries permitting, but whatever back 4 is intended for Saturday has to start against Oldham just as a "Hello, I am Greg and I'm a left back" sort of exercise. Wouldn't be averse to pairing Travis with Buckley in the centre and
  14. After the debacle of Charlton I'd like to see us go with something totally different from the norm, lets face it we're going to get mullered anway. 4-4-2 - Walton, Nyambe, Tosin, Lenihan, Bell, Rothwell, Travis, Johnson, Downing, Brereton, Gallagher. Subs - Leutwiler, Mulgrew, Bennett, Chapman, Armstrong, Dack, Graham No doubt it will be the same tired players, trying to play in whatever weird formation TM has them working on this week. 3-0 Fulham, so happy i booked trains for this when the fixtures were released ?
  15. Don't know if I'm stepping on the toe's of anyone wanting to do the match thread but I thought I'd do one to get the conversation started. Not long till kick off now, doesn't seem that long ago since the last season finished and the manager currently has us in a weaker position (defensively) than what we were in last season. We have a tough start to the season so for me this is already a must win game, considering our home form is what kept us from being in a relegation battle last season. As far as our starting 11 goes, it's hard to predict right now considering we c
  16. With the dingles starting there season at home on Saturday 10th August, it looks like we'll be at home on the opening weekend (3rd August) Also looks like a home game on Boxing Day, away on New Years day, and away on the final day of the season if it falls on the same weekend as last season. Fixtures released next Thursday (20th) at 9am.
  17. The Fa cup 1st round starts this weekend ,many lower non league clubs will be looking to cause some upsets .There's not many bigger ties than Chorley FC v Doncaster Rovers FC ( somehow Bt and BBC chose not to show live coverage?). Top of the league Chorley have sofar won 49 grand in prize money alone gate receipts will make this 60-70 grand.The FA have doubled there prize money this year BBC 2 are showing live highlights of 6 games Sunday including this match ,all 12 teams receive £12,500 If you would like to go and support the Lancashire lads v Yorkshire here's the details Ko
  18. I thought this match deserving of it's own thread. Ordinarily I wouldn't agree but as it's a final and against the Troglodytes then winning becomes all that matters. On paper we should win. We have the quality and experience and stuffing them at anything matters. As of this morning there were less than 600 tickets sold.
  19. The conclusion of our 2018/19 season sees us face Swansea, recently relegated from the Premier League and previously labelled as Swansalona at their prime, which I used to always enjoy. We get cheap tickets, which some people think is a good idea - and others think is an insult to season ticket holders. They really can't please anyone. Rovers have won 4 of their last 5 - Swansea have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1, form which saw a late playoff charge from Swansea, but it wasn't quite enough, making this a total nothing game - apart from the battle of the Lancashire Championship Clubs,
  20. At Blueboy's request he would like some proper match threads ... He may have a point! Below is a list of our upcoming fixtures, if you'd like to start the thread for each please shout up. Opposition fan interviews, stats, history - whatever it is, let's see it! Rovers vs. Reading, Weds 22nd August Rovers vs Brentford, Sat 25th August - @blueboy3333 Rovers vs Lincoln, Tues 28th August - Biz Bristol vs Rovers, Sat 2nd September - K Hod Rovers vs Villa, Sat 15th September - proudtobebluenwhite Derby vs Rovers, Tues 18th September - Mike E Stoke vs Rovers, Sat 22
  21. Checked the match thread and nobody has volunteered for this one so here goes. I had vowed never to do a Match preview again after chalking up a 100% record of defeats in games I wrote in anticipation of last season so probably as well I saved my literary endeavours for one that doesn't matter. Not even prize money for places are at stake unless someone can correct me. 1965/6 was the first season I followed Rovers in depth and we had a decent Cup run as well as an abysmal relegation. In the 5th round we drew then 2nd Division Norwich away and got a 2-2 draw before winning the replay
  22. Some people here who have visited the game against Feyenoord in 2006?
  23. Norwich City are promoted to the Premier League after beating Blackburn Rovers 2-1 at Carrow Road. Norwich exploded into the match scoring two early goals to take control of the game. Rovers got back into the match after Lewis Travis scored his first professional goal for the club. The loss ends Rovers winning run, and confirms Norwich promotion. Norwich City: Krul, Godfrey, Zimmermann (c), Vrancic (, Lewis, Buendia, Stiepermann (Tettey, 90), Pukki (Rhodes, 90), McLean, Hernandez (Leitner, 90), Aarons. Unused substitutes: McGovern, Klose, Hanley, Cantwell. Goals:
  24. Easter Monday sees us lock horns with an old foe from t'other side of Bull Hill. I have to be perfectly honest and admit I don't really care too much for them. Almost certainly this goes back to the 70's when a visit to Burnden Park could be intimidating. I was actually chased back to Trinity Street station by some Bolton fans because we had the temerity to beat them in a crucial Division Three game. For anybody of a certain age Derek Fazackerley scored a late winner. I used to meet him frequently on the football circuit and I always reminded him that he was almost responsible for an early dem
  25. Blackburn Rovers head to Carrow Road looking to upset the party as Norwich City look to seal the deal and get promoted to the Premier League. Rovers come into the match on the back of a sweet 4 game winning run, where as Norwich City come into this on the back of 4 draws. In this video I catch up with Norwich City supporter Harvey Monck and he gives his verdict on Norwich and the players that have stood out for him. We also take a look at the form book and get a prediction from the Cat. TWITCH ? http://twitch.tv/roverseas PATREON ?https://www.patreon.com/roverseas
