  1. Apologies if someone else was lined up to start this thread. So,let's start with: March 24th 2012 - Bolton 2 v 1 Rovers April 2nd 2012 - Rovers 0 - 2 Man Utd April 7th 2012 - WBA 3 - 0 Rovers April 10th 2012 - Rovers 2 - 3 Liverpool April 14th 2012 - Swansea 3 - 0 Rovers The last time we lost 5 on the bounce, according to the lancs live. Mowbray now has to mastermind a win or draw against 3rd placed Watford in order to avoid joining the same club as Steve K**n in going 5 losses in a row. Confidence must be at an all time low and I can't see anythin
  2. So, silence speaks volumes. 1320 on a Friday & no match thread. Will anyone be watching? Think I might, in some sort of sick perverted, self torture kind of way. Expect the same crap as the last few matches. Mowbray Out
  3. The much loved International Break is upon us . . . So what better time than to start a new England thread . . .especially since it also signifies the start of some kind of new International Carabao Cup . . or something. . . See what the heck that is here and only waste 1min 38secs of your life in the process. It's also got it's very own anthem to rival any God of War Playstation game. I see Southgate was bemoaning the lack of English players in the Premiership the other day. Things look pretty grim for the supposed 'new golden generation'. I suspect most of the kids that played in
  4. Enthusiasm, excitement... hope? It’s telling when I am needed to start the match thread! With settled teams often the most successful, TM will be reaching for his selection lottery machine. Heaven knows what the starting XI will be. Tea-lady might be in with a shout for right back, if they haven’t been furloughed. We tend to nick a result when it’s all doom and gloom, but I can’t see past a draw which TM will be brimming with pride over, despite the calamitous late equaliser. My one hope is that Dolan gets a run, our young ‘stars’ need game time to kick on. Presume the matc
  5. Looks like we will have a few more options for the weekend. Would go like this: Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Branthwaite Douglas Travis Davenport Elliott Dack Dolan Armstrong Subs: Pears, Harwood-Bellis, Trybull, Rothwell, Holtby, Gallagher, Brereton, Downing, Bennett Back 4 and keeper pick themselves. Dack must play in his best position, Armstrong is obvious as is Elliott, and Travis again despite his rustiness picks himself. As ever, the main dilemmas come in CM and on the left. 50/50 between Holtby who looked decent last week and the less gifted but more i
  6. So here we are again. Not quite on "the cusp" of the play offs just yet, but not far off it. Luton have been a bit of a bogeyteam for us of late, but surely this is a game where we stamp our credentials and go on a run that brings us deep into the play off places 🙂 I can feel it 😉 I would go with the following Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Brantwhaite Douglas Travis Rothwell Elliott Dack Brereton Armstrong If 4-3-3 Kaminski Nyambe Lenihan Brantwhaite Do
  7. We usually lose games which I start match threads for so I guess this is a free hit. The only game I have seen this season where we were unambiguously the worse side/not at the races/ totally out classed and out played was Swansea away so there is little reason to believe Tuesday night will be any different (checked- it is Tuesday night but watch the kick off time of 7pm in the UK, 8pm for me). Venue is a ploughed field near Lower Darwen or a remote in your living room. Weather outside cold but that's academic because none of you are allowed out anyway. Yes we were particularly badly
  8. Locked in and snowed in here in Huddersfield so thought I may as well start a match topic for this weekend’s game against Stoke. Weather not looking too promising for Ewood on Saturday, with heavy rain forecast which of course will guarantee the pitch to be even worse than it has been in recent matches. As for Stoke we know exactly what they are about having played them just before Xmas since when they have added a few players to their squad, the latest being Jack Clarke from Spurs, a promising wide player originally at Leeds. Lets hope we have a full back capable of handl
  9. Our FA Cup adventure begins... Will we take it seriously? Will fringe players get a run out, whilst key players are rested? Pre-season and in the League Cup were dealt with lower league teams fairly easily, can that continue? For me, I’d hope we take it seriously. A cup run generates interest, builds confidence and gives an opportunity for a few players to get some game time. Starting places for Dolan, Davenport, Buckley and Carter - I suspect he will also start Dack and Downing. I’d rest Armstrong, Johnson, Travis and Gallagher - on the bench. Pike, Lyons etc also on
  10. Well where do we even start? Birmingham took a thumping midweek off Derby and they are midst a poor run with precious few goals. Surely even our defence will not crumble again? Starting XI - I’d bring in Dolan, at least to mix it up on the right and swap Davenport for Johnson to give him a rest (looked off the pace against Huddersfield). Both managers under real pressure.
  11. When I saw the next two fixtures when the list came out, I just knew we would lose them both. Both are Mowbray designer banana skins he will unfailingly fall over, I thought.. Well here we are: - let's be honest we have a far better squad than any of us dared hope when the fixtures were published BUT - we have to win these two to keep our league season alive. I have no idea how we are going to do it. I guess together with Tony Mowbray, that makes two of us...
  12. My apologies to any fellow BRFCS poster(s) if you'd been lined up / ready to write this thread, but given it was less than 2 days to go, and most of us being somewhat pre-occupied tomorrow, I thought I'd give it a go... (but not 'a right good go'...) Up next at Ewood are the sleeping giants of Sheffield Wednesday, currently slumbering along second bottom of the Championship. The all time record between the two clubs is very evenly balanced, with Rovers having won 57, Owls 59 and 38 drawn. Managed by another of TM's contemporaries whose better days seem well behind him, Tony Pulis, We
  13. Next up, The Potters away at The Britannia Stadium. Having won our first game in the last four, Stoke City are our next opponents, in what is likely to be another tough fixture in the run up to Christmas. Michael O'Neill's side sit just a couple of points above ourselves after 19 games, following Tuesday night's goal-less draw at Loftus Road. They've had a pretty mixed bag of results so far this season, not too dissimilar to ourselves, having won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 fixtures. The Britannia has been a happy hunting ground for The Rovers in recent seasons, winning th
  14. Can’t see a match thread for tomorrow’s game at Brentford. Still recall the delight and disappointment at Griffin Park 3 years ago where despite winning 3-1 we were relegated to League 1. Well tomorrow we won’t be playing at Griffin Park but some shiny brand spanking new stadium in West London (what is it called?) and we will potentially be playing for a top 2 spot? Brentford have had a change of personnel since we last played them in London, losing Watkins and Benhrama to the Premier League but still seem to be able to consistently produce the goods and with Ivan Toney sign
  15. Hey guys if you havent seen this its a must, very interesting podcast with Chris Brown as well, Ben talks about his life and why he quit professional football, quite a bit about his time at rovers, Mentions Bowyer being very paranoid and Coyle as absolutely useless but a nice guy, its on you tube. two other guys doing the interviewing no idea who they are, seems the Legion (Ben and Co) were on the piss quite a lot during his/their time at rovers, makes me wonder why we never got to the playoffs with that team, anyway make your own mind up and leave comments. Its also quite funny. You get to kn
  16. I have searched the site, and cannot find a thread and surely they deserve one? (Sorry if I have missed it.) Having won the triple last year, and cruelly overlooked to go into the PL, I note they are now storming the league. Six wins out of six, for 30, against 1! Do any members go, where do they play, and do the horrors from Pune support them? I just think it would be good if there was some publicity whilst there is a lull in the first team fixtures? Any information as to why they were rejected from the PL, despite an appeal, and the obvious that as soon as Man Ure raise a
  17. After a thoroughly depressing week of football, 3 games and a solitary point gained, we welcome The Millers to Ewood Park on Wednesday night. They've struggled so far this season particularly away where they've only won once in 9 outings. They also picked up their 2nd win since October yesterday, turning over Bristol City 2-0 at The New York Stadium. Rovers' team selection causes that many conundrums all over the park, I really wouldn't know where to start, other than Kaminski in goal and Elliott fitted in somewhere! I hope our intrepid leader keeps his mouth well and truly shut
  18. Norwich next up at Ewood, as the fixtures continue to role on thick and fast. They're currently top, as the top half of the table is starting to look pretty congested as the season develops. Recently suffering from horrendous injuries, they have started to stutter, not least demonstrated better than by a tame loss against Luton. A much win game for me, if we are intent on closing the gap on the leaders. A 4 point return from the last 3 games would be acceptable but should we lose this rubber, 1 point would be a poor return. Will Darragh be back to partner Ayala in the centr
  19. Next up is Bristol City at Ashton Gate. Can The Rovers extend their unbeaten streak in another tough encounter? We've played pretty well there in recent seasons and if on the front foot, there's no reason why we can't come away with 3 points. Our defensive line up should prove interesting to say the least. I haven't looked at other teams' fixtures this week but theoretically, if we follow a win here by beating Norwich on Saturday, we could be top on Saturday night! Unlikely I know but time for a nose bleed?!
  20. The second of our series of 2 home games, we welcome 'The Lions' of Bermondsey, Millwall to Ewood Park. As a result of Covid-19, Harry the Dog and his chums will have to watch on iPlayer along with the rest of us. (Fannies!) They currently sit (before the weekends fixtures) one point above ourselves, having drawn 7 of their 13 games so far this season. It's always been a tough game against Millwall and no doubt next Wednesday night won't be any different. We''ll have to be at our very best to overcome a really resilient team and any point that we manage to win, will have been extreme
  21. Durham will be livestreaming their match v Rovers Ladies this Sunday via their Facebook page facebook.com/durhamwomenfc The stream will be free but Durham request that fans contribute £6 (the price of a ticket) to the #endchildfoodpoverty campaign that is spearheaded by Marcus Rashford. Durham currently sit top of the table with Blackburn in 5th. Last season, Rovers went to Durham with no points in the League & Durham were top of the table with a 100% record & Rovers won 0-1 thanks to a gritty away performance & a penalty scored by Ellie Stewart. Thi
  22. If Blackburn gets put into Tier 2, do you think Rovers will be able to organize having 2000 on against Barnsley ?
