  1. It seems all of our business is done for the window. That being the case what do people see as our best starting eleven? My suggestion: Raya Nyambe Mulgrew Lenihan Bell Evans Bennett Palmer Dack Armstrong Brereton Bench: Canadian, Rodwell, Reed, Rothwell, Graham, Davenport, Williams Very tough to leave out Rothwell after his start but that front 4 is very very solid. I also think Rodwell will force his way into the side as the season goes on.
  2. I have not seen a match thread for this game, so thought I would be brave and get one started. Forest just pounced on Stoke in a similar vein to us in the league cup. 3 goal lead gobbled up, with Stoke losing eventually 3-2. Am I correct in thinking Brereton will not be allowed to play this weekend against Forest? If, so Graham to start, with Dack supporting. Mowbray some midfield selection headaches to make, with Conway, Armstrong and Rothwell giving him a bit of a dilemma. Reed, Bennett, Evans and Smallwood also in contention. That's why he gets paid the big bucks. I spoke

  4. Blackburn Rovers longstanding unbeaten home record has come to an end as Sheffield United claim all 3 points in a one sided match at Ewood Park. Two goals from Championship goalscorer Billy Sharp was enough for Sheffield United as the climb to joint top of the league. Rovers looked far from their best tonight and offered little in response, with only a couple of fleeting chances. They will hope to bounce back rapidly as they take on North West rivals Bolton Wanderers on Saturday. In this video we hear from the gaffa Tony Mowbray about the result, also look at some analysis
  5. More Blackburn Rovers action to look forward to as this weekend we keep it local as we take on North West rivals Bolton Wanderers at their place. Bolton will come into this match on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Stoke City Tuesday night, whereas their visitors Rovers also come into this match on the back of a 2-0 defeat, however Blackburn lost at home to Sheffield United. Hoping to see a much improved performance by Rovers on Saturday evening, as we need to end this spell on a high, as we will head into a mini break with international football rearing its ugly head. No fan input o

  7. Blackburn Rovers are back at Ewood Park for some midweek Championship action when the take on Sheffield United. Rovers come into this match fresh off the back of a 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest. Sheffield United come into this match after a huge away win against Millwall winning 3-2 on the road. Sheffield United currently sit 4th in the table and a win on Wednesday could see them go top of the league. In this video I spoke with Ben Meakin from the Up the Blades podcast about Sheffield United's chances against Rovers, their prospects for the season and more. We also l

  9. Blackburn Rovers maintained their unbeaten home start to the season with a tough draw against a resolute Nottingham Forest team. Forest had an early chance to take the lead with a penalty, however Lewis Grabban managed to hit the bar on this occasion. Forest did however get their noses in front with some nice counter attacking football and Grabban made amense and put the ball in the back of the net. Rovers however dug their heels in and Adam Armstrong managed to squeeze the ball into the net with a cross/shot that beat the Forest keeper. Next up Danny Graham and Bradley Dack li
  10. Championship Trivia Quiz (Data from whoscored.com) 1. We have an impressive THREE players in the top 20 (out of 333 players) in the Championship ratings so far. Who are they? A bonus point if you get them in the correct order! 2. How many more Rovers players make the top 100? 3. We are doing well in the tackling stats so far. Who is our best tackler (3 successful tackles per game, on average). 4. We also have the 5th best pass interceptor too. Who would that be? 5. How about the Rover who rates 9th in the num
  11. AFC Bournemouth - AKA 'The Cherries' - so nicknamed because of the colour of their original strip or because Dean Court, their original ground, was next to some estate that had various cherry orchards. Their current strip was nicked off AC Milan in the early 70's. The bloody nerve. Originally called Boscombe FC and then later Bournemouth & Boscombe FC, they only became AFC Bournemouth in 1972 at the behest of a certain John Bond (managed Burnley for a year and sold all their best players - Legend). The Dingle connection still persists in the guise of Howe and Stanislas, who felt sor
  12. Blackburn Rovers return to league action to take on Nottingham Forest. Rovers come into the match on the back of league cup defeat to Bournemouth. Nottingham Forest will come into the match after they take on Stoke City in the league cup. However currently their last league math was a victory against Rotherham United last weekend. Ben Brereton, I expect will be unable to play this weekend as he is still technically owned by Nottingham Forest. Mowbray will hope to have Charlie Mulgrew back from injury, however he will be without the services of Derrick Williams as he was sent
  13. A great team performance. Sure, there will be individual mistakes but it’s great to see the rest of the team put their bodies on the line to relieve the pressure!

  14. Apologies for the delay in this thread. I have been busier than expected! ROVERS vs Stoke City - 22nd September 2018. First of all I thought it wise to compare our current position to this time last season. Occasionally we have tendencies to let ourselves get rather worked up by a poor string of results, or disappointing performances, or BBQs. It's important to remember how far we have come in 12 months. The last time I wrote a match review was Rovers vs Wigan last season. In it I called it the last chance saloon for Mowbray unless we won - we didn't. I called for his sacking that ni
  15. I'm going to the game tomorrow and it occurred to me that I couldn't remember seeing us win or even draw at Stoke. I had a look on the Soccerbase website at our head-to-head record against Stoke to check whether I was right and discovered that I have been to watch Rovers at Stoke five times and we have lost each time. I first went in 1988 when they beat us 2:1 bringing our 20+ game unbeaten run to an end. Since then, we have lost four and won two games at Stoke. Needless to say, I missed the two wins but was there for each of the defeats. That got me thinking about whether I have any othe
  16. Blackburn Rovers picked up a massive 3 points after scrapping a cheeky away win against Stoke City. Rovers actually cruised to a three goal lead by the opening minutes of the 2nd half, and looked to have secured the win without breaking too much of sweat. However Stoke clawed their way back into the match, scoring a quick fire double to leave Rovers scrambling. Rovers nearly threw the points away as an effort by sub Peter Crouch nearly made its way into the net, but Blackburn can thank David Raya for his big body save. The drama was not over for Rovers as Stoke were awarded a p

  19. Next up for Blackburn Rovers is another tricky away match when they head to the Bet365 Stadium to take on Stoke City. Blackburn come into this match off the back of a 0-0 draw against Derby County, whereas Stoke City come into this match fresh off the back of a victory against Swansea City. Rovers will hope to have Captain Fantastic back in the lineup after Charlie has missed the midweek match against Derby. In this video we count down to kick off with a look at the current form books of both Stoke and Rovers. We also have a chat with David Cowlishaw from the Wizards of Drivel
  20. Blackburn Rovers escape Pride Park with a share of the points as Derby County fail to make all their possession and dominance count in a game that Rovers struggled to get into. In a match that offered very little to get excited about from a Rovers point of view, the only major opportunity that went our way was a Bradley Dack effort that went close. Derby on the other hand, looked a real threat from the off, and were so dominant that Tony Mowbray had to make a mid first half substitution. Conway was removed with Danny Graham coming on. Rovers did start to impose themselves in th
  21. Name: Derby County FC Stadium: Pride Park Manager: Super Frankie Lampard Form: Pretty good, 12pts from 7 games. Strip: Laughably boring compared to our hallowed halves. Derby County are famously a perennial second division team in modern times, being humiliated during their brief forays into the Premier League (I'm looking at you, 'Giles Barnes'). Derby are generally a club that hovers around the play-off places, while our season in this league is (to my mind) one with aims to hit midtable. Their history consists of being notable as one of our fellow founder members of the Football Le

  23. No rest for Blackburn Rovers as we are back on the road for some midweek Championship action when we head to Pride Park to take on Derby County. Rovers come into the match fresh off the back of a draw against Aston Villa at Ewood Park on the weekend. Derby County on the other hand come into this match on the back of a defeat to Rotherham United on the road, which saw both Tom Lawrence and manager Frank Lampard sent off. In this video I speak with Derby County supporter and Steve Bloomer's Washing Podcast host Chris Parsons about the buildup to the match. We also have some team
