  1. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/18373769.neil-warnock-reveals-rovers-interest-appointing/ Also reveals he had line up Sol Bamba and Hoilett to join us back then.
  2. FT is reporting that the PFA is resisting calls for players to take pay cuts in the coronavirus crisis https://www.ft.com/content/b2278645-eaf8-408f-bc9f-04478d32795c ....while MPs and others have accused them of living in a moral vacuum https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52120578 Barca players have agreed to take a 70 percent pay cut with no fuss and other La liga clubs have followed. Virtually all German and Italian players have taken at least a 50 percent pay cut. The difference is players in these leagues they may still be overpaid but they have the nous to reali
  3. Wow can't believe how much Gallagher and Bennett are getting paid compared to Dack and Travis! https://footballleaguefc.com/blackburn-rovers-2019-20-player-wages/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
  4. Rumours circulating that our old player Peter Whittingham has fallen down the stairs and is now in intensive care. Rumours right now but I hope it isn't true. Admins delete if not this isn't ok to put up
  5. Has anyone got any good ideas as to how we can get our Rovers fix during this current crisis? Maybe watching You Tube clips of matches? Maybe some Rovers related quiz questions? Weekends are going to be tough. Any suggestions gratefully received!
  6. I see the Gruaniad (sic) are running a story with the headline: Sven-Göran Eriksson: 'Blackburn let me join Lazio. I thank them every day It is a stark reminder of where we were in the grand scheme of things, how far we have fallen (e.g. worrying about dropping points at Brentford) and what might have been... Click the link, bask in the reflected glory of those glory - glory - Sven Gory days... and weep ;)..........
  7. Thought it was worth its own topic.
  8. Thought it appropriate to say on here that Martin died last night. I recall Mark Wastell's death being announced on here and Martin captained our BRFC Supporters Club in London in the APFSCIL League in the late 80s early 90s. Quite simply a fantastic, intelligent bloke with a wicked sense of humour.
  9. Petition to rename The Riverside Can the post be pinned? Thanks.
  10. The word coming out is its a season ender. God almighty. Very bad if true. We can all criticize the transfer window, but for him Dack and Rothwell to all get injured is ridiculous.
  11. Tim Flowers has left his job as manager with Solihull Moors by mutual consent. A possible addition for the coaching staff ? Goalkeeping coach ?
  12. A good day (almost) all round for Lancashire sides today. Lancashire County Stanley getting a creditable 1-1 draw at home to Charlton with Clarke cancelling out Ahearne-Grant’s 15th minute opener in the 78th minute. Chorley make it five wins from five to sit at the top of the National League North after a 1-0 win at home to fourth places Hereford. Bury nicked a point in the 90th minute at home to Forest Green Rovers. Aimson equalising after the away side saw former Blackburn Rover, Gavin Gunning, sent off in the 76th minute. Oldham got their first win with a 3-1 result
  13. The lads are off on their jollies. https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2020/january/rovers-head-to-portugal-for-winter-training-camp/
  14. From the latest Rovers Trust mailing : BRFC Marketing Prospectus: Making it EASY to support Blackburn Rovers The key aims of Rovers Trust are to: -Preserve the Assets and Heritage of the Club. -Regenerate Support. -Mitigate a Lost Generation of Support. This Prospectus lays out suggestions from Rovers Trust members, under the following headings: 1. Pride of Lancashire – Celebrating the history and heritage of Blackburn Rovers. 2. Season Ticket Holders - Rewarding those who make the biggest commitment to our club. 3. All fans - Encouraging all fans to
  15. Can someone ask how much he enjoyed taking his “long” throws onto Samba’s head? Also, can he sleep yet after that Semi Final header?
  16. Anyone on here want a few Rovers calendars from the not-too-distant past? Or perhaps you know someone who might want them? All in top condition, unmarked and unused. I’ve got the 2003, 2004, and 2005 ones (with the likes of Friedel, Cole, Jansen etc featured) and though I live over in Yorkshire and don’t get over much for games these days, I visit family regularly so I’m sure could sort out delivery. Reply on here or by PM. Ta
  17. I see the club have announced that the Blues Bar will cease to open each day and instead will be just matchday and functions. Anyone heard any more about this? I assume just another Waggott cut and downsizing job. Surely in an era of Ffp and non matchday income this sort of thing is important? I was told previously that the Blues Bar was run separately to the club e.g. wasnt covered by Northcote and that was why they could charge sensible(ish) prices for food and drink.
  18. I used to watch the under 23's games on Rovers player does anyone know why these are no longer shown on Ifollow not even highlights ? is there anyhwere else they can be watched ? ps would love to watch in person but live 200 miles away.
  19. Surprised no one has started a thread on this. Another member of England's one and only World Cup-winning team has gone. Alan Ball, Ray Wilson, Gordon Banks, Bobby Moore, Martin Peters. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50880336 Saw him play at Ewood. A class player.
  20. Haven't seen this mentioned. So Rhodes got in, clearly from his time with us. Whittingham too,clearly not due to his time with us. Hon Hoolahan and Harte. I didnt think Harte even played in the Championship that much. Surprised hes there. Slowest left back ever,but some left leg on him. Only player I ever saw David Beckham burn for pace.
  21. You may recall John as a guest on Episode 112 of the podcast, well the book can now be ordered from deCoubertin Books following this link. The book is published on 27th November 2019. https://www.decoubertin.co.uk/rovers It focuses on 1991-5 mainly, but references other periods of Rovers glory including the Howard Kendall years to provide a comprehensive story that will delight old & young Rovers fans alike. Podcast link here:
  22. ... the only changes they made to the jersey for 1995/96 was add an A to the ASICS Logo and put a blue background to the badge? i had just bought the 94/95 shirt thinking they might keep it another year.
  23. Sad news coming out that Jim Smith has passed away. A good manager and a good football man
