  1. As the International break is upon us, an apposite time to look ahead to our next Championship match. After both teams were thumped 4-1 last weekend, we sit 13th and 12th respectively, same 9 points, our negative goal difference, the difference! A good performance essential, now that we are back at Ewood and on the telly box. Our most famous defendant must be fit, after a few bouts of unpaid work, and hopefully back for the day job? Anyway, I play five-a-side on a Thursday, and one of my fellow fifty something five-a-siders is a Villa fan. More interestingly, his son is a budding radio fo
  2. Blackburn Rovers returned to league action as they took on Aston Villa at Ewood Park. Rovers managing to grab a valuable point in the end despite going ahead with only minutes remaining on the clock. The goals came from Bradley Dack for Blackburn Rovers and Conor Hourihane for Aston Villa. Dacks goal was a cheeky wee backheel and Conor Hourihane's was a belter from a free kick. An honest point in the end, in game which could have gone either way. In this video we hear from Aston Villa supporter Lindsay Williams about the result, plus words of wisdom from the gaffa Tony
  3. Hi, I currently have two identical Rovers 6ft x 4ft flags on order, one for me, other for my mate. One of the flags is up for sale (as mate) as now decided he wants a smaller flag. As you can see from the finished artwork below (sent from footballflags.co.uk) the flag is now ready to print following my approval. The finished flag will have strong edge white binding attached around flag (not shown in picture below) As you can see flag has a red poppy to top of St George cross with Lest We Forget text and a lancashire red rose badge to bottom of St George cross. Flag cost
  4. Blackburn Rovers are back in action after the completion of the International break. Heading to Ewood Park to take on the mighty blue and white will be Aston Villa. Rovers come into this match after a bit of beating by Bristol City in the last match after Blackburn lost 4-1. Villa on the other hand come into this match in similar form, as they too lost their last match 4-1 against Sheffield United. Rovers will hope to have a few key players back for this one, with Bradley Dack returning from injury and we could see a full debut from new boy Ben Brereton. Please like, share
  5. Championship Trivia (Data from whoscored.com) 1. 1. Who are our three best rated players so far (out of 320 Championship players overall)? 2. And the 3 worst? 3. Who is the only Rover to have 2 Man of the Match awards so far? 4. Leeds has the highest pass success rate of 79%. Where do you think we stand? 5. Who do you think our best passer is? (Hint 85.2% success.) 6. We come first in the “number of long balls per game” ratings. How many on average? 7. I remember doing one of these trivia things pre-Mowbr

  8. I am pleased a few people showed interest in my last post so I was motivated to watch the Hull game for the first time. (I’ve been on holiday for 2 weeks).

  9. Bristol City vs Blackburn Rovers, 02/09/18, 1.30pm, Ashton Gate. Following a win against Lincoln City in the League Cup last night and the unveiling of the worst kept secret in football in Ben Brereton finally signing, we take the hellishly long journey to the South West of the country and head to Bristol City for a slightly re-arranged league game. Rumour has it, it has been moved due to a music festival on the Saturday. As something of a music fan myself, it’s not something I can particularly complain about, particularly as I won’t be attending the match either…..
  10. Blackburn Rovers will go into the international break after getting thumped by Bristol City at Ashton Gate. 4-1 the final score in favour of the hosts Bristol City. The only goal coming for Rovers was scored by Charlie Mulgrew direct from a corner kick. Bristol City leveled shortly after from a free kick. In the 2nd half it was all Bristol City as they ran away with it scoring 3 more goals. Ben Brereton made is debut from the bench, to little effect. Moving forward Rovers will head back to Ewood Park to take on Aston Villa after the international break. In this video we

  12. On Tuesday night, Rovers take on the Imps. I had intended to do some more research and typing but I broke my arm last week so this will have to do; Lincoln facts; Lincoln is a cathedral city around 100 miles away in the midlands Our last competitive fixture was in the FA cup in 1974, our last league fixture in 1958 in Division two. 6 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in total. Lincoln are top of league two, undefeated having beaten Notts county in their previous outing. Currently managed by Danny Cowley, one of two brothers making a name for themselves in lower league.
  13. Probably the first real test of our top-half Championship credentials, if we have some. Brentford are, by all accounts, very good. A progressive club with link to clubs in Iceland and Denmark they seem to unearth some quality players from far and wide. Alan Judge is still there but |I'm not sure he's back to being a starter after his injury. Watkins, the lad they signed from Exeter, will be one to watch - a big striker with pace and an eye for goal, just like we need. Not sure if their other main goalscorer Maupay is banned this Saturday. Last three matches against them at Ewood in Champ
  14. Got a question that I hope yee can help with! Hoping to head to my first away rovers match ever next week in Bristol. Tried to buy tickets online but none are available. I'm based in Ireland and am flying straight over to Bristol so is it even possible for me to get tickets at all without going to the ticket office in Blackburn? Sorry if its a stupid question in advance!
  15. Blackburn Rovers picking up a massive 1-0 victory of high flyers Brentford. Despite hitting the woodwork twice Brentford could not taking anything from this match. Rovers had limited opportunities in front of goal, as their creative line has been hit with injuries this past week got their noses in front thanks to a goal from loan signing Kasey Palmer. Rovers pressed their opponents throughout the 90 minutes with players such as Elliott Bennett, Corry Evans and new signing Joe Rothwell working tirelessly. As mentioned earlier, Rovers lacked key players in this match with Bradley
  16. The 2018-19 EFL Championship continues as Blackburn Rovers take on Brentford FC at Ewood Park on Saturday August 25th. Rovers come into this match fresh off the back of a 2-2 result against Reading. Blackburn coming back from two goals down to salvage a valuable early point in the season. As for the visitors this Saturday, Brentford also fresh off the back of a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa. Brentford currently riding high in 4th place where as Rovers lie unbeaten in 9th. In this video I preview the match, predict my starting elevens, match buildup and get a prediction from Cas
  17. My team would be - Raya Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Bell Evans Rothwell Bennett Dack Palmer Armstrong
  18. Blackburn Rovers returned to Ewood Park to try and continue their fine start to the 2018-19 Championship season. However they found themselves in deep water at half time being 2 goals down to a plucky Reading. The visitors scored both goals via defensive howlers by Rovers and they were scored by Bödvarsson. Rovers were hit by a couple of injuries both before the match and during the match, as midfield dynamo Bradley Dack and Kasey Palmer both ruled out, whereas during the match both Adam Armstrong and Dominic Samuel where substituted due to injuries. Regardless Rovers fought ba
  19. Even though the game is only 2 weeks away, tickets are not yet for sale on the website. Is it too much to ask that the people in charge of the ticket office do their job?
  20. The 2018-19 EFL Championship continues as Blackburn Rovers take on Reading FC at Ewood Park as they look to continue their decent start to the new season. Rovers come into the match fresh off the back of their first win of the season which took place on Saturday against Hull City at the KCOM stadium. As for Reading FC they have yet to get off the mark in the league, and they come into this match fresh off the back of a defeat to Bolton Wanderers at the weekend. In this video I preview the match with input from Marc Mayo from The Tilehurst End Podcast and we also get a prediction
  21. Can anyone be arsed putting some effort in and doing some proper ones? Maybe have a list of the ones people would like to do like last year?
  22. Blackburn Rovers get their first win of the season on the road against Hull City at the KCOM stadium. The only goal coming from Bradley Dack shortly before the half time whistle. Despite that, Hull City edged themselves back into the game towards the final 20 minutes. However Rovers held firm thanks to some fantastic saves from David Raya towards the end. The only concern for Rovers after the match is the health of Bradley Dack who was substituted with a knee injury shortly into the 2nd half. In this video we hear from Kieran Webster on his thoughts relating to Hull City,

  24. You’ve got to be keen to do this for a 0-0 draw! But I got some good feedback last time, so here goes. There are lies, damn lies and statistics as Disraeli may have said. I was thinking about this after reading the fans comments on the post-match comments for the Ipswich game. I compared the fans’ opinions to the ratings on the whoscored.com website. Apparently Williams was our best player (7.62) and Nyambe the worst (5.82). There wasn’t much correlation! Anyway, here’s my effort for the Millwall game: Each player was judged on the following criteria: Instance of excellen
  25. The 2018-19 EFL Championship continues as Blackburn Rovers head back on the road this time to take Hull City at the KCOM Stadium. Hull City come into this match after picking up a a point out of their previous 2 matches. Whereas Rovers fair only slightly better after picking up 2 points from the first two matches of the season. Rovers are also fresh of the back of a 1-5 victory over Carlisle United in the Carabaro Cup, so we will be hoping they bring their goalscoring boots with them to Hull on Saturday. In this video I preview the match with input from Hull City supporter Kier
