Fans Friendly Squad

  1. The Brentford match thread has included a lot of chatter about the potential renovation of the Riverside Stand at Ewood Park. The club have expressed a will to “do something” about the stand in recent past according to Steve Waggott and seemingly there are many different visions among the supporter base about what should and could happen. Some are suggesting a reduction in capacity for supporters, lowering from 4,000 seats in TRS currently, to as low as 1,000 by some fans estimations. Others look at Millwall’s and Brentford’s plans and see a necessity for an increase in capacity inst
  2. Apologies if the wrong section, but this is driving me mad!... My first match watching Rovers was when Rovers beat WBA at the Hawthorns 1-0. It was either 21 March 1987 (86/87 season) or 12 December 1987 (87/88 season). I know Alan Ainscow scored the winner and Simon Barker missed a penalty. I can’t find a line up online for either game. Anyone able to help?!
  3. Barnsley fan here. Hello to you all. I archive and collect video footage of my club and wondered if there is any footage you might have between our clubs. The kind of stuff I'm looking for is old club videos, stuff taped off telly and even home movies. If you are willing to share your stuff I'd be more than happy to convert it to dvd for the loan of any tapes you might have. Thanks for looking and stay safe in these strange times.
  4. Greetings all! I am trying to improve my Rovers DVD/highlights collection does anyone know where I can find previous highlight/goals dvds/vhs? I have some of the most recent seasons, but looking to start from the initial Premier League season all the way to the present day. 1st hand/2nd hand I am not fussed with condition. Could even be digital/online versions. Any help would be graciously received. Dirk Copland
  5. I’m a University student and currently studying the effects that Coronavirus (COVID-19) will have on football clubs. Blackburn Rovers is one of these clubs however our survey results so far show that Blackburn Rovers fans are unrepresented compared to other clubs. If you could fill out this survey that will help the club transition out of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, I would appreciate it massively. https://interceptum.com/s/en/GamePlanFanSurvey
  6. For anyone that is not aware, Sky are allowing people to "pause" their sports packages with no penalties. It's difficult to get through on the phones but they are hopeful you will be able to pause it online by the weekend. https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2020/03/sky-sports-to-let-customers--pause--their-accounts-amid-coronavi/
  7. Just to let people know, the official Rovers YouTube channel is showing our pre-season win against Barca in 2001. It's airing 7pm tomorrow evening (Wednesday 10th June).

  9. Hello One & All, I hope everyone is keeping safe & well. For those who don't venture into the world of the ICBINF pages, I would be grateful if you would take time out to visit my post over on that forum: Many Thanks Karl
  10. The day after Rovers won the league title at Anfield, BBC North West broadcast this documentary...it contains some fascinating coverage of Rovers in the early 20th century, the 1960 cup final, interviews with Jack Walker & much more...enjoy ! Jackpot! Part 1
  11. Not mentioned like Ossie and Archibald, but Stapleton was another high profile coup for the club at the end of the 80s. I recall being disappointed by him, and am surprised he made as many as 80 appearances, but as a kid I would have been too young to appreciate his all round game. I just wanted to see him hit the back of the net. What are other people's opinions on his Rovers spell?
  12. If anyone is interested, I'm selling this 1998/00 Blackburn Rovers shirt in immaculate condition, signed by Dwight Yorke. ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254596503091
  13. I know which was the best goal I ever saw scored by a Rovers Player. I'm taken back to it every Easter Saturday. It was the goal the one and only Bryan Douglas scored against West Brom on Easter Saturday April the 13th 1963. Here's what Alf Thornton had to say about it in the " Last Sports " - " At 80 minutes DOUGLAS brought the house down with a wonder goal such as only he of present day footballers can score. He picked the ball up on his wing at the half way line, shrugged off attempted tackles by Clark and Bannister, went inside at speed and beat Williams, Jones and Fairfax with beautiful
  14. Thought some might be interested in seeing this. Howard was and is a Rovers legend. This is the story of the Everton team he built after leaving Ewood for Goodison. https://www.evertonfc.com/news/1665132/how-to-watch-howards-way Enjoy
  15. Not sure how many of you on the board know @pk1875 (Paul to his friends) but he’s currently in hospital suffering quite badly due to Coronavirus. If you get a minute to say a prayer or send positive vibes he could really do with them right now.
  16. So tomorrow would have been the final day of the season but it’s not to be. FM have predicted the final results and have us in 8th going into the final game just 1 point behind Preston and 2 behind Bristol City with a better goal difference. Those two play each other whilst we head to already relegated Luton. A win for us takes us to the play offs. It’s all being virtualised on the Skysports live blog from mid day tomorrow. What’s the odds on us virtually nicking the last play off place. http://www.skysports.com/share/11981670

  18. In an effort to relieve the boredom I have put together a Rovers specific quiz for which I will post the answers on a new thread. No googling and the referees decision is final ??. 1/ Rovers have had three goalkeepers with the initials JB - name them. 2/ There have been three Rovers players in recent times whose full names contain all five vowels. Can you name them? 3/ Six clubs have won the EPL. Only two players have played for four of them (not necessarily when they won it though). Who are they? 4/ Tony Parkes joined Rovers from which non league club in 1970? 5/ Who
  19. I saw on Twitter earlier that it's 13 years to the day since we played so well against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi at Old Trafford but lost in extra time. It would have been brilliant to win that and play in the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley, plus the teams we had between 2005 and 2008 were good enough to have won something. That got me thinking - if you could change one result in Rovers' history, what would it be? That game would definitely be up there for me. Arsenal FA Cup semi-final in 2005 too probably. That was the height of the 'Bully Boys' tag and knocking Wenger and Arsena
  20. Random question- Just been watching the Worthington cup final win and I know Tugay was suspended but as far as I can make it he was not even at the game? Did not notice him in any of the celebrations or in the dressing room after the during the celebrations and interviews. During the on pitch celebrations Souness tells someone to hurry up to come and join them and no one appears any idea if that was Tugay and if not who it was?
  21. New FIFA tournament have started and Rovers are one of the 54 teams that have joined it. Dack is the player who will represent us and we were drew in group M, along with Walsall, Tinn Harps and Crewe Alexandra. Dont know much more about the tournament and the matches so any updates will be much appreciated.
  22. ‘Easy’ – The Mick Heaton Story. On the 25th anniversary of his untimely passing, this is a great tribute by Rob Sawyer (who also wrote the Roy Vernon book ‘Blue Dragon’). https://www.toffeeweb.com/season/19-20/comment/history/39422.html
  23. Probably like many of us at the moment I’ve been doing a fair bit of reading. I’ve got a pretty good collection of Rovers books and I’ve rediscovered some long forgotten facts about our great club! So I’ve compiled a quiz of 20 questions about the Rovers which I would like to share. If you, like me, love quizzing then I hope it might help provide a much needed distraction and some enjoyment in these difficult days There are 20 questions but the total score is 36. If you want to PM me your answers then I’m more than happy to give you your score! Q1. Rovers didn’t have one of the
  24. Hi all Wondering if anyone can assist. I need two Tugay pics to go in a frame with a signed shirt. Looking for two portrait pics of a decent enough quality that I can get them printed (without any issues around copyright obviously). Has anyone got a good source for pics? Looked at GettyImages which has a lot from the era that I’m looking at but it’s not easy to just buy a print for personal use. Just wondering if anyone has anywhere else where I could source a decent quality image. Looking for the 06-07 season ideally. Bet 24 logo and the last of the Lonsdale shirts
