  1. 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.
  2. First time I have seen this since its original airing!
  3. 1/ John Barton, John Butcher and Jason Brown. 2/ El-Hadji Diouf, Carlos Villanueva and Tugay Kerimoglu. 3/ Andy Cole and Paul Dickov. 4/ Buxton. 5/ Matt Jansen. 6/ Bolton Wanderers. The attendance was 62,522. 7/ Arsenal. 8/ Six. 83-84 v Derby (h) and Portsmouth (h) 86-87 v Sunderland (h) 88-89 v Oldham (h) and Man City (h) 89-90 v Barnsley (h) 9/ O'Keefe, Price, Sulley, Barker, Keeley, Mail, Miller, Ainscow, Hendry, Garner, Sellars. Subs: Patterson and Branagan 10/ David Batty. 11/ Watford.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. ‘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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. With old football on the TV and nostalgia for days gone by a favourite on here (a favourite anyway, never mind lockdown), I'm going to borrow from Ian Herbert's twitter and ask for photo memories of trips gone by. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures at my all-time favourite away jaunts (Feyenoord or Blyth Spartans) so my entry comes from our lovely day in York the summer before League 1. Nice drive, warm weather, decent shops and really modern facilities...
  15. Hi all, So as this trying time we are all looking for ways to occupy ourselves and to keep our health ,both mentally and physically, as well as it can be. I'm big into reading, although I do like an old audiobook as well. I'm not really into your typical football autobiography as I have read some that were clearly just ways to cash in without really telling us anything. So , let's have it, what are your favourite sports books? My top 3 in no particular order are 1-The greatest footballer you never saw-The Robin Friday story. Put together by a member of Oasis no less ,thi
  16. Dear all, I am involved in some university research that is looking at sexuality in football and I would appreciate a few minutes of your time to share your thoughts on this subject. The survey is anonymous and can be found here: https://doit.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5d4gVVLc7wZUS57 Thanks in advance for your time.
  17. I got married on Friday, luckily just before everything decided to close down! My wife's step dad decided to ask Rovers and Liverpool (wife is a big Liverpool fan) if they'd be able to get some players to sign a congratulations card for us. Amazingly, Rovers entertained the idea and have sent a card with a few signatures (unfortunately the same can't be said for Liverpool). I've worked out a few of the signatures, but I was wondering if anyone would be able to help out them at all?
  18. 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/
  19. Who has been your favourite kit manufacturer for Blackburn Rovers from 1990 to the present day and why?
  20. The Premier and Football Leagues to be suspended until at least 4th April (Situation to be reviewed on 4th April). Given that the government are estimating the peak of this virus is 12-14 weeks away then there is the real possibility that the entire season could be voided. Has huge implications for the football league, particularly those clubs that are already in financial strife.
  21. I’m just wondering are there any pictures anywhere of the one game Rovers played in this kit. Apparently it was in December 93 away to Spurs in the league cup.
  22. Hi all. I’ve attached an image of a shirt I just bought online with some signatures on. Can anyone identify any of them If they don’t mind? Thanks for having a look
  23. We really battered them at home, could have scored five there and should have gone through if it weren't for bad finishing and excellent goalkeeping from their guy. Speaking of goalkeeping, Friedel doesn't exactly cover himself in glory for their first goal in the away tie, even though it's a good finish.
  24. I was listening to the excellent "price of football" podcast (https://priceoffootball.com/podcast/) this morning and they covered the new points based immigration system that the government have proposed and the affect it would have on football. Rovers have invested in a european scouting network which is likely to be redundant as the new system would make it difficult to sign players from outside the UK. Any player would need 70 points to be allowed to work here. A job offer from an approved employer would give the player 20 points. The club would have to demonstrate that locally
  25. Presurming we dont pull off a Miracle this season... If next season our only first team signings were Walton, Tosin and Cunningham and we didnt lose any 1st team players would you be confident of us at least reaching the playoffs next season? I think we would have to be confident of reaching them. Tosin and Walton are only likely to further improve. Cunningham strengthens us at Left back and I would keep Bell as back up. You would hope/expect Buckley, Costello and Brereton to further improve next season. I think Travis and Armstrong are only going to get better
