  1. Random question- Just been watching the Worthington cup final win and I know Tugay was suspended but as far as I can make it he was not even at the game? Did not notice him in any of the celebrations or in the dressing room after the during the celebrations and interviews. During the on pitch celebrations Souness tells someone to hurry up to come and join them and no one appears any idea if that was Tugay and if not who it was?
  2. New FIFA tournament have started and Rovers are one of the 54 teams that have joined it. Dack is the player who will represent us and we were drew in group M, along with Walsall, Tinn Harps and Crewe Alexandra. Dont know much more about the tournament and the matches so any updates will be much appreciated.
  3. ‘Easy’ – The Mick Heaton Story. On the 25th anniversary of his untimely passing, this is a great tribute by Rob Sawyer (who also wrote the Roy Vernon book ‘Blue Dragon’). https://www.toffeeweb.com/season/19-20/comment/history/39422.html
  4. Probably like many of us at the moment I’ve been doing a fair bit of reading. I’ve got a pretty good collection of Rovers books and I’ve rediscovered some long forgotten facts about our great club! So I’ve compiled a quiz of 20 questions about the Rovers which I would like to share. If you, like me, love quizzing then I hope it might help provide a much needed distraction and some enjoyment in these difficult days There are 20 questions but the total score is 36. If you want to PM me your answers then I’m more than happy to give you your score! Q1. Rovers didn’t have one of the
  5. Hi all Wondering if anyone can assist. I need two Tugay pics to go in a frame with a signed shirt. Looking for two portrait pics of a decent enough quality that I can get them printed (without any issues around copyright obviously). Has anyone got a good source for pics? Looked at GettyImages which has a lot from the era that I’m looking at but it’s not easy to just buy a print for personal use. Just wondering if anyone has anywhere else where I could source a decent quality image. Looking for the 06-07 season ideally. Bet 24 logo and the last of the Lonsdale shirts
  6. 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
  7. 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...
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. Who has been your favourite kit manufacturer for Blackburn Rovers from 1990 to the present day and why?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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/
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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 ?

  22. 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
  23. 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
