  2. Hopefully you're ready for the new season now - the good news is that the fanzine will return! A postal subscription to all five issues can be purchased by CLICKING THIS LINK. It's only £9 this season, which includes all P&P costs. International delivery is also available. Based on the quality of contributions already received, the fanzine will be staying in good shape for another year. It also promises to be an exciting season as we pass the 100th issue mark and see some 25th anniversary celebrations of 1994/95 - is it really that long ago?! Thanks to everyone who has already subscribed - the first issue of the season (Issue 97) is due out on Saturday 17th August.
  3. Hi, I’m a Huddersfield fan, this is a post for any Fantasy Footballers out there! There is a new Fantasy Football for the Championship for the first time, the link is here: https://www.fantasybet.com/blog/efl-championship-fantasy-football-2019-20/ It’s £5.50 entry and prize pot if £10,000. It’s very similar to Official FPL - pick a 15-man squad for £100 million, 1 transfer a week, etc, etc. If anyone is interested please do feel free to join and share, the more the merrier! Good luck to you guys for the coming season, be nice to see you do well, looking forward to welcoming you to the John Smith’s Stadium!
  4. A thread for tomorrow's pre-season game against Blackpool. Is anybody going? It seems tomorrow's starting lineup will likely be our starting XI against Charlton next weekend, so eyes will be on the team news at 2pm. Walton Bennett - Lenihan - Mulgrew - Bell Travis - Johnson Armstrong - Dack - Downing Graham Seems the likeliest team, based on those who played at Bury in mid week, though I'm sure opinions will vary. I have fond memories of pre-season games at Bloomfield Road in the past, in particular in July 2003, when we'd just signed Brett Emerton (who scored if memory serves) though I can't find any details of it online.
  5. Mrs picked this up from a recent visit to her dad's, decent side and bench then! If anyone wants/needs it I will pay postage, except for AllRover Asia and USA blue and Exiled in Toronto ? https://photos.app.goo.gl/WZKbkQMvDYbcEQxV8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/18cDX8yy5eYoeEZR6
  6. First of all. You lot thoroughly deserved the win yesterday. I thought the turnout from the rovers fans was decent too considering the shambolic weather. I was just after your opinions on Joe Nuttall. We are being quite strongly linked with him and some sources suggest the deal could be completed by as early as tomorrow evening. Do you think he could do a decent job in League One if we do indeed sign him? Regards.
  7. Another season draws to a close, and whilst the final game at Swansea is still to be played, there's a lot of thing we already do and don't know about the next campaign. So what do we know about 2019/20 so far (Jesus that is in-fact an actual 20!) This years training camp is yet again in Austria, and is set to be a week long. No matches confirmed nor denied by Steve Waggott, but the location and length of the trip was confirmed at the Fans Forum in March. Tony Mowbray wants to get transfer business done earlier this year, following on from the late rush in Summer 2018. TM’s trip to India scheduled for just after Swansea game. There’s two budgets/plans in mind, one with major investment from Venky’s and one without. Season tickets STILL haven’t been announced, and there’s been no indication that the announcement is imminent either. The 1875 Club Membership Scheme is likely to be retained, with the prospect of smaller away allocations at places such as Luton Town. Jack Rowell future still up in the air, with two Serie A clubs having reportedly enquired about his services. No Home/Away pre-season fixtures announced as of yet, last seasons pre-season fixtures were released on May 10th 2018 - with the first three games announced. So we can safely assume we’ll get something similar. For the last few years we’ve played mainly away fixtures for pre-season, with higher profile games like Liverpool and Everton coming at home. The Under 23’s end their season against Burnley in the Lancashire Senior Cup Final at Leyland, and TM has said that many of them will travel to Austria and be given a chance to prove themselves. Season Ticket Holders From 2018/19 who renew will be able to use the same card for 2019/20. If you’re changing age group, or moving seats, a new will be sent out to you But what else have I missed, what else do we already know? Or alternatively, much like next years Season Tickets, what do we still not know that we probably should? After the 2018/19 campaign was dubbed a consolidation year, and Tony Mowbray asked us to give him "three or four" transfer windows to prove himself, what can we expect from the 2019/20 season? Are the expectations to fight for promotion, or is the dreaded word "consolidation" carrying on it's nationwide tour?
  8. I work there, it’s hot, few beers and why not. Hoping to see if Hart really has improved, Buckley, Butterworth or JRC if they get some minutes, and same for Walton, Gally, Downing And Johnson. And Big Ben, why not. should also be fun playing spot the trialist for Bury ?
  9. I've made an Alexa skill for Rovers. If you add it you will able to ask things like Alexa, ask Blackburn Rovers what's the score Alexa, ask Blackburn Rovers what's the latest news To use it just got to the alexa app on your phone and add the skill or go here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ibly-Ltd-Blackburn-Rovers/dp/B07VCL3218/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=blackburn+rovers&qid=1563658396&s=digital-skills&sr=1-1 I'm keen to hear your thoughts/feedback.
  10. Hello, Now I know that he didn't actually play for you, but I know he's local to Blackburn. I am trying to get in contact with the former Preston, Newcastle and Huddersfield town midfielder Chris Holland and I am wondering if anyone on here knows him, or knows what he's up to these days as I'm wanting to contact him about his career at Huddersfield. Can anyone help with this? Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks LSM
  11. Hello, I am researchIng for a biography of Roy Vernon - ex Rovers, Everton, Stoke City and Wales? Roy starred at inside-left in Johnny Carey's Rovers team of the late 1950s alongside Bryan Douglas, Matt Woods, Ally MacLeod etc. He followed Carey to Everton in 1960 and on the League there in 1963. he finished his career with Great Harwood in the Northern Premier League. Do any older forum members (or perhaps your parents, or grandparents) have memories of Roy that you can share with me? If so please email royvernonproject "at" gmail.com Thanks Rob
  12. Happy Tugay Day! A 40-a-day smoking 38 year old, who put the Premier League’s best on their arses by standing still. A man who only scored spectacular 25 yard goals, but made them look like tap-ins. Mark Hughes and Sir Alex Ferguson said if he’d been 25, he’d have been playing for Barcelona and Man Utd respectively. Frankly, I still think he could displace Pogba. Mark Noble was picking his all-time PL X1 and said: “I was young and arrogant and I thought, 'oh he's got grey hair, I'm going to get in and around him', and he had me on a bit of string for 90 minutes. I'll always tell people about that. “Obviously I love Steven Gerrard and I think Frank Lampard is one of the best goal-scoring midfielders the country has ever seen, but I'll have to go with Tugay.” More than a great player he was a REAL leader, in a Rovers team chock-full of International Captains. At the 2002 World Cup, he led Turkey to 3rd place, uniting a volatile dressing room of relatively extreme Christians and Muslims. I don’t think Rovers fans will love a player as completely as they did Tugay for another generation. Ask most older fans who the best they’ve seen in a Rovers shirt was, Tugay will be in the same bracket as Bryan Douglas, Ronnie Clayton, and Alan Shearer. Simply the best!
  13. Conway's old thread has been archived, so I'm starting a new one here as he's seemingly being given a new contract. I think most of us on here agree that he's past his best at this point and level (although I'm happy to be proven wrong!), and the most likely reason he's being talked to for a new contract is being a positive influence on the squad in training, helping out the young players etc. I do however wonder if he could be used in a new position? He was never the fastest player and now definitely doesn't have the pace to play as winger anymore, but could he do a job at full back or central midfield? HIs shots and crosses still seems to hold up pretty well.
  14. Hi everyone, A bit of background....I was a st holder in the blackburn end for quite a few seasons and went to most away games before I left the UK and moved to Cz in 2006. My last season ticket was 07/08 but I only flew over for the derby. The following seasons in the premier league I still followed everything as most games were shown here in pubs etc but starting with the Steve Kean mess and the relegation it started going downhill and was harder to keep up. I've been to the odd game over the last few years but I definitely miss it and have decided to get a season ticket for 19/20 then on fixture day book a load of cheap flights and try to get over at least once or twice a month. So...my question....what have I missed? I see attendances are slowly improving. Do we still hate venky's or are most fans thinking they were stupid and naive when they came in and are now investing and making better decisions? I assume the majority are happy for Tony Mowbray to stay and continue to build. There are always going to be fans doubting him but surely last season has to be looked at as being a fairly decent one? I noticed away support has been great. Is it hard to get tickets in general? Before I distanced myself there was the whole Derek Shaw saga. I dont know much about Steve Waggott....I'm assuming he's no John Williams but how is he doing? How is the matchday experience these days? Is there at least adecent enough feeling around the club and a bit of excitement? Thanks!
  15. My Sporting Life on Talksport now for 2 hours for anyone interested. I'm working so that's my excuse.
