Fans Friendly Squad

  1. Here's wishing every one of you and your families a wonderful healthy happy and successful 2021. We've been through a lot together as Rovers fans and 2020 has had its own particular twists and challenges to say the least. But I am very upbeat about the coming year even though the first quarter promises to be the worst part of Covid. We even have a bit of a Rolls Royce of a Rovers squad albeit the tires at the back are bald, there's no spare and we have found out what we suspected all along, the long serving chauffeur doesn't know how to drive... Here's my 30,000th post- what the heck have I been doing with my time since this MB started all those years ago? What a ride it has been and what incredible avenues just being a Rovers supporter has taken me down. I can't imagine addiction to sex, drugs, booze and rock 'n roll could be any more distracting/time consuming/giver of coruscating lows or ecstatic highs than the accident of birth and upbringing within easy walking distance of Ewood..

  2. Hey everyone, I'm one of the boot room staff here at BRFCS, I look after the servers and make sure they don't fall over ... or rather, get them running again when they do, I'm BRFCS' Mike Pettigrew if you will. With that in mind that I've been doing some work with the admins and mods to try and make the site a bit more resilient, it's no Vince Grella for staying on it's feet as it is, but it's no Derek Fazackerley either, it could be better. Over this coming weekend there will have to be some downtime (not during the game, I'll be watching that) as I start the work, then again in a few weeks there will be a bit more while I do some more work. I'll try and do it during quiet times, but inevitably there will be some who cannot access the site when they would like ... sorry about that.
  3. Hi, I am looking to purchase classic Rovers Shirts from season 1990/91 & 91/92. If any one has these shirts and wishes to sell
  4. Hello All, I was wondering if I could get some support at the upcoming elections for FSF National Council? I previously spent time on the National Council during the period I was involved with the BRFC Action Group and Rovers Trust. When I stood down from both organisations to concentrate more of my efforts on work and family, I also stood down from the National Council. We are facing challenging times as supporters, with talk of breakaway leagues, empty grounds due to Covid, Clubs having a real threat of going out of business and many issues around our national game. I feel I'm now in a position to put my extra time, to something good, and something I'm passionate about. Having a Rovers supporter on the FSF National council can only be a good thing, as these positions are elected representation of all supporters of all clubs. This year there is just four positions up for election, and 12 Candidates including myself have been short listed as candidates to stand for the election. Voting is open to all, and those who receive the highest number will be duly elected if you would like to help and support my bid to be elected this year, please follow the link to administer your vote Register and vote in the 2020 FSA AGM - Football Supporters' Association (thefsa.org.uk) Below is little about the FSF The FSA Is the National, Democratic representative body for Football supporters in England and Wales, We are leading advocates for supporter ownership, better fan engagement, cheaper ticket prices, the choice to stand at a match, good governance, diversity, and all types of supporter engagement, The breadth of work is huge and difficult to sum up in a paragraph or two. As the national organisation we have regular contact with the Premier League, the EFL, National League, and the FA, as well as a whole host of other organisations within football such as the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA). Football is for all and we work closely with organisations such as Kick It Out and Level Playing Field to ensure that core belief is happening in the real world. We have supported the establishment of scores of BAME and LGBT fans’ groups over the past few seasons. We are founder-members of Football Supporters Europe (FSE) who represent supporters across the continent and are heavily involved in the organisation, with two members who sit on FSE’s Committee (Kevin Miles and Paul Corkrey). As secretariat to the All Party Parliamentary Football Supporters Group we have strengthened the voice of fans within Parliament in recent years. Our casework helps hundreds of fans every year who feel they’ve been poorly treated by their clubs, stewards, or police. We give those fans a voice, the best possible advice, and even legal support where necessary. We pioneered the concept of Fans’ Embassies and have helped fans of both the England and Wales men’s national teams at tournaments across the planet. We are proud to have replicated this service, for the first time, for England’s Lionesses at the Women’s World Cup 2019.
  5. Here you can discuss the FIFA World Ranking. Good to see England doing well. Belgium at number 1 is quite a stunt. They were located around spot 70 a few years ago.
  6. So whos going to be watching? ?‍♂️#guilty

If You download the app and you get 5 free votes. Many thanks
  12. Rovers current recruitment, scouting and data analysis department consist of six members of staff based in Brockhall analysing hours after hours of video footage, that is in addition to three data analysts. Rovers also has on top of that regional scouts that cover games around the UK, plus scouts that operate around Europe scouting players. Bruno Reis overseen the European scouting department and Stuart Harvey overseen the overall department So you are looking at around 15 to 20 people working within these departments. So a lot of time setting this structure up, investment and hiring the right people into these roles. We have had some success in the European transfer market this summer and hopefully this continues next transfer window and beyond..
  13. Someone posted this on a non-football Fb group. I won’t name them for their privacy but this isn’t my photo. “Going down the Bolton Road...” Wondered if anyone else can add any detail or has similar photos?
  14. Championship Trivia Quiz Johnson (8.61) and Armstrong (8.36) are rated the best two players in the Championship right now on whoscored.com. We have a third player in the top 10. Who is he? Unsurprisingly BJ and AA make the “team of the week” but who are the other two Rovers to make the team? Of the 335 players rated by whoscored.com, 4 of the bottom 6 come from the same team….which team? Our current, worst player (of the regular outfield players) comes in 101st on whoscored.com, Who is he? As an aside, this is a far better overall team rating than I have ever seen. We top the table for the highest average rating per player this season at 7.26. Just for fun, who was our worst rated (regular) player last season at 351/360 players. Here are some other notable stats for last season: David Nugent 346th, Todd Kane 345th, Joe Garner 334th, Kasey Palmer 335th, Connor Mahoney 315th, Danny Simpson 284th, Bennett 283rd, Rothwell 258th, Charlie Adam 242nd, Tom Ince 240th, Nyambe 237th, Bell 234th. Derby and Wycombe have yet to win a point. Which other team is in the same boat? Which Championship player has (on average) the most shots per game (five) but has also been called for the most offsides too. Which team has both the most possession per match (58%) and the most successful passing percentage (82%)? Hmmmm, I didn’t believe it either! Which Rover has played every game and has a 94% passing success rate? Great hat-trick by Armstrong but which two players have scored two Championship hat-tricks for Rovers fairly recently? (Hint: they played together often). Which former favourite scored our last hat-trick? Answers (data from whoscored.com and LT.) TD (7th with 7.63) 2.TK and JR, 3. Wycombe, 4. Bell (for fun…..DG), 5. NF, 6. Armstrong, 7. Derby! (In comparison Rovers are at 51% and 77%), 8. TD, 9. Rhodes, Gestede, 10. Graham (SW 2018). Tell me how you got on!
  15. I just posted in the football italia thread and it got me feeling all nostalgic. Early 90's when there wasn't that much coverage on TV and football wasn't in your face 24/7 I couldn't get enough of them, Match, WSC, 90 Minutes & a bit later FourFourTwo being my favourites, but in truth I would get anything I could get my hands on. I also remember my grandad showing me some shoot magazines that he had in his loft from the 70s around that time and thinking it looked like a completely different game. Did anyone else used to collect football magazines before football turned in the 24 hour a day news event that it seems to be now?
  16. I've made 3 Rovers wallcharts for this season which are completely free unless you want to make a donation of which 50% goes to mind charity. You can request the high quality versions through this Request Form or from this website www.wallcharts360.com. Hopefully I'm alright sharing on here
  17. People in and around football say things all the time. Some insightful, some nonsense, some downright funny. What are your favourites? I'll start with a classic from Cloughie: 'I wouldn't say I'm the best manager, but I'd say I'm in the top one.'
  18. Some seriously big clubs at imminent risk of getting knocked out at the third qualifying round stage this evening. ... and Celtic of course
  19. First time I have seen this since its original airing!
  20. It seemed appropriate to remind ourselves of this today...
  21. Well that is not something you see every day!
