  1. Hi all, So as this trying time we are all looking for ways to occupy ourselves and to keep our health ,both mentally and physically, as well as it can be. I'm big into reading, although I do like an old audiobook as well. I'm not really into your typical football autobiography as I have read some that were clearly just ways to cash in without really telling us anything. So , let's have it, what are your favourite sports books? My top 3 in no particular order are 1-The greatest footballer you never saw-The Robin Friday story. Put together by a member of Oasis no less ,thi
  2. With old football on the TV and nostalgia for days gone by a favourite on here (a favourite anyway, never mind lockdown), I'm going to borrow from Ian Herbert's twitter and ask for photo memories of trips gone by. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures at my all-time favourite away jaunts (Feyenoord or Blyth Spartans) so my entry comes from our lovely day in York the summer before League 1. Nice drive, warm weather, decent shops and really modern facilities...
  3. Dear all, I am involved in some university research that is looking at sexuality in football and I would appreciate a few minutes of your time to share your thoughts on this subject. The survey is anonymous and can be found here: https://doit.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5d4gVVLc7wZUS57 Thanks in advance for your time.
  4. I got married on Friday, luckily just before everything decided to close down! My wife's step dad decided to ask Rovers and Liverpool (wife is a big Liverpool fan) if they'd be able to get some players to sign a congratulations card for us. Amazingly, Rovers entertained the idea and have sent a card with a few signatures (unfortunately the same can't be said for Liverpool). I've worked out a few of the signatures, but I was wondering if anyone would be able to help out them at all?
  5. Who has been your favourite kit manufacturer for Blackburn Rovers from 1990 to the present day and why?
  6. BRFCS is delighted to announce that renowned Rovers historian & author Harry Berry (A Century of Soccer, The Blackburn Rovers Miscellany, The Men Who Made Blackburn Rovers since 1945) has given us access to his archive records of Rovers first team players. The initial batch of records representing players with surnames beginning with A have been loaded & can be accessed from the new Home Page &/or by following the link below :- https://www.brfcs.com/mb/index.php?/player-archive/ Our sincere thanks go to Harry for sharing this content, over time the record wi
  7. I’m just wondering are there any pictures anywhere of the one game Rovers played in this kit. Apparently it was in December 93 away to Spurs in the league cup.
  8. Hi all. I’ve attached an image of a shirt I just bought online with some signatures on. Can anyone identify any of them If they don’t mind? Thanks for having a look
  9. A nice little article in case anyone has missed it. https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17710045.don-mackay-reflects-on-the-highs-and-lows-of-rovers-spell/
  10. Presurming we dont pull off a Miracle this season... If next season our only first team signings were Walton, Tosin and Cunningham and we didnt lose any 1st team players would you be confident of us at least reaching the playoffs next season? I think we would have to be confident of reaching them. Tosin and Walton are only likely to further improve. Cunningham strengthens us at Left back and I would keep Bell as back up. You would hope/expect Buckley, Costello and Brereton to further improve next season. I think Travis and Armstrong are only going to get better
  11. We really battered them at home, could have scored five there and should have gone through if it weren't for bad finishing and excellent goalkeeping from their guy. Speaking of goalkeeping, Friedel doesn't exactly cover himself in glory for their first goal in the away tie, even though it's a good finish.
  12. I was listening to the excellent "price of football" podcast (https://priceoffootball.com/podcast/) this morning and they covered the new points based immigration system that the government have proposed and the affect it would have on football. Rovers have invested in a european scouting network which is likely to be redundant as the new system would make it difficult to sign players from outside the UK. Any player would need 70 points to be allowed to work here. A job offer from an approved employer would give the player 20 points. The club would have to demonstrate that locally
  13. Hi all I am doing the sleep out for Blackburn rovers community trust. This year the trust is working in partnership with blackburn food bank with funds going to the homeless and underprivileged families in the blackburn area I'm a 41 year old man, dad to 3 children husband and own my own decorating company in the leyland area but always feel THOSE WHO HAVE SHOULD HELP THOSE WHO HAVEN'T...... I would really appreciate if you could give something towards the charity... even the price of a pint or a pie can help. Thank you for reading and please let's make a difference toge
  14. Just seen this on our site .... There are apparently NINE Post-War International footballers, who've played League Football over three different decades, who've donned both the Blue and White of Blackburn Rovers, and the Claret & Blue of Burnley F.C. at some point in their long careers ! Any suggestions ?
  15. ISSUE 100! It's only taken us 30 years to get there! We've put together a memorable 48-page special edition which celebrates this significant milestone and it's still just £1.50. To order your copy please visit our ONLINE SHOP, or to purchase through eBay CLICK HERE. Season subscriptions are also STILL AVAILABLE HERE for just £9.00 (includes P&P) which gets you all five issues from 97 to 101. If you prefer grabbing a copy in person, the fanzine will be sold outside Ewood before the forthcoming home games from an hour before kick-off (at the bottom of Kidder Street). Issue 100 inc
  16. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/12040/11944257/premier-league-to-launch-hall-of-fame Shearer surely in the mix for one of the first 2 places. Him and Fergie.
  17. I've wanted to post this for a while, but I was waiting for an upturn in form, so it didn't get lost in all the (probably justified) manager and team bashing that go along with bad performances and results. So before a possible Brentbashing this Saturday (eeek): Referring to past comments about the direction Rovers are supposedly heading in. What exactly does a Slow Build mean? Has this ever been explained? Does it refer to building Rovers Financially or Team Progression on the Pitch. As those 2 things are contradictory - as 'making money' would imply selling your best players for a
  18. For my 40th birthday present my poor fiancée has agreed to “treat” me to a stay in Manchester and tickets for the home game against Swansea. Can any of the good people of this forum advise me on how much matchday tickets will cost and when they will become available on the website? Where’s the best place to sit in Ewood for a good experience? No sarcastic comments please ? There’s not much information on the official site. We’re planning to stay in Manchester the night before the match and get the train to Blackburn on Saturday. Any advice on what time to get the train so we can get some pints

  20. Now this might be incredibly stupid question, but well here goes trying! I've been a Rovers fan, probably ~15years now. I was a huge fan of Tugay when he was playing for Blackburn. He was such a natural midfield maestro with great technique.. and great shooting. Anyway, I remember back in the 'early days of youtube', watching one goal highlight by Tugay, whichs' commentary is just stuck in my head. It was a "regular" Tugay type Goal of the Season contender. Thunderbolt from 30 yards out etc.. There are currently some videos in Youtube of Tugay goals for Blackburn but I cant find that
  21. What team would everyone play on Tuesday night? Walton Nyambe Lenihan Adarabioyo Bell Chapman Travis Davenport Downing Graham Armstrong Not ideal having Downing wide but in the absence of any competent wingers at least one of him and Armstrong will have to play there. Very much a pragmatic 442, not Armstrong as a number 10. Johnson and Rankin Costello should be taken out. No more strikers out wide bollocks. No Samuel near the 18.
  22. Good morning everyone, I hope this is okay to post here – if not, moderators please move or delete as appropriate. I’m part of a team at the University of Sheffield, led by Dr Chris Stride. We've published a number of academic papers and magazine articles relating to football history, on subjects such as statues and replica shirts (see, for example sportingstatues.com, and https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/17460263.2019.1578255). Our current project is investigating the music that football teams have run or walked out of the tunnel to over the years. We are looking
  23. The next Rovers Supporters Consultation with the club is on Thursday next week at Ewood Park at 6pm. As always BRFCS gets five tickets to these, we have four left, so if you would like to attend and hear from Senior Staff at Rovers, plus have the opportunity to ask questions directly to them, please leave your names below.
  24. I have a spare ticket for the Charlton away fixture, message me if you want it. Free of charge, pick up before game in pub. Alex, DM me - 07506 667302
