  1. Thought this deserved its own thread. In 23 days Rovers have twelve players out of contract who will be free to make an agreement with foreign clubs to join them on a free in September 2021. These include - Lewis Holtby Ryan Nyambe Bradley Dack (club have a 12 month option to activate) Joe Rothwell Joe Rankin Costello See LancsLive article here with, IMO, some very concerning quotes from Mowbray: https://www.lancs.live/sport/football/football-news/blackburn-rovers-contracts-update-mowbray-19419343 How on earth have we got in a situation where we can lose 4 (maybe even 5) key players for nothing this year? How much would it cost to replace these players? Why have we committed funds to the likes of Downing - who hardly plays - when Mowbray says money is tight?
  2. No mudslinging and no ridiculous picture-cropping, children.
  3. Might as well start a thread as Kinder has now the U'21's into the cup final (anyone know where & when it is BTW?) U'18's won at Newcastle http://www.nufc.co.uk/page/Match/Report/AcademyReport/0,,10278~4547946,00.html
  4. Worthy of its own thread. New site and streaming service replacing iFollow launching on June 1st 2021. Rovers will come away from the iFollow/EFL template website and adopt it's own new site & streaming production service. Following in Derby & Leeds United's footsteps, Rovers will make significantly more money from digital viewership. Control over content, advertising, quality of service & of course pricing is an all round bonus for me. Would have to assume the Under 23's games will be likely be moved here too which would be good, linking everything together.
  5. Hi all! Some time ago, we used to run contributed match previews by you guys, and given the recent upgrade to the mb I feel it's high time we brought them back! I'll list the fixtures below, I'll add any cup fixtures as they're announced, and just comment below which matches you would like to do! It'll be first come first serve, so get in quick! Once allocated, you'll see your username placed next to the match, with the match crossed out. If for any reason you can't do one that you've committed to or you've asked for the wrong one, just let me know or comment below. As matches pass, I'll remove them from the list. For an example, see my West Brom Match Thread, or the myriad of wonderful and often side-splittingly funny previews in the site archives.

  6. 4,000 Holes will return in 2021/22 with five new issues planned. Since the landmark 100th edition in February 2020, lockdown has prevented any new fanzines to be produced due to the loss of usual sales at the ground. Issue 101 will be released in August on the opening day of the new season when Rovers face Swansea City at Ewood. Subscriptions are available for just £9 which covers Issues 101 to 105 and includes all postage (for UK customers). Previous subscribers who are still due the delayed Issue 101 are able to get a pro rata reduction so that they are not paying double for that issue. Please use the following link to order: https://roversfanzine.bigcartel.com/product/4-000-holes-subscriptions-2021-22

  9. I know there is at least one Trust thread already, but with the recent election complete and a board shake up underway, I think it`s fair to start fresh. Please try and stay on topic. From the Rovers Trust Website. The elected members of the new Rovers Trust Board (Steven Bradley, Michael Doherty, Ozz Jones and John Murray) met for the first time on Saturday 15 April. We would like to thank members for their votes and the faith placed in us to take things forward and build on the work of the previous Board. We agreed that John Murray would become the next Chair of the Trust, with Ozz Jones as Vice-Chair. Michael Doherty will lead on legal and policy issues and on liaison with external bodies. Steven Bradley will lead on communications and social media. We feel that this reflects the balance between change and continuity that the election results communicated. Strengthening the Board with people with the right expertise and enthusiasm is an immediate priority and steps are underway to co-opt further Board members. Whatever happens in these final games of the season, our club is in dire straits and the Trust has a lot of work to do. We need more members and more active involvement from existing members. We know there is an appetite for this from members and we are seeking ways to involve you more in both formal and informal ways. We have every confidence that you will respond actively and creatively! We are meeting again in less than two weeks and are working with the previous Board on an effective transition. If you have any immediate questions or offers of help then please contact us on enquiries@roverstrust.co.uk http://mailchi.mp/roverstrust/a-message-from-the-new-board
  10. We have been contacted by Ellgren who are trying to track down someone who owns a Rovers, Ellgren, yellow, away replica shirt…do you have one or do you know someone who may have one ? https://www.brfcs.com/magazine/ If you can help, please contact us on this thread or by DM & we can reveal more… Thanks everyone…
  11. Fever Pitch BBC features BRFC and tells a story . Certainly invokes fabulous memories and brings tears to the eyes 😢 thank you Jack for everything that you did to make dreams come true #onelove#BRFC
  12. As is likely that many Rovers fans going to Blackpool on Saturday will travel by train, please be aware of the chaos caused by Northern Rail on previous Saturdays when they cancelled trains at the very last minute, had trains that only had three carriages and also had a train that should have gone through to Manchester stop before Preston meaning a join up with another train before arriving at Preston seriously overcrowded! Total chaos!!
  13. This has just been discussed on Sky - https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12414519/premier-league-to-resume-on-boxing-day-2022-after-break-for-qatar-world-cup-from-november-13 Basically next season both the Premier League and Championship start 1 week earlier and will have a break during the world cup. Lets hope we have a decent understudy to Kaminsky available by December 2022 as we may be without him !
  14. Daniel Ayala! DANIEL AYALA! He hates the Saudi's He loves the Rovers DANI AYALAAAAA! He's signed... Discuss.
  15. https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2020/august/welkom-thomas/ Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of KAA Gent goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski for an undisclosed fee. The 27-year-old, who becomes the first Belgian footballer in the club’s history, has signed a two-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months. Kaminski, who has almost 300 career appearances and Champions League experience under his belt, started out at Beerschot AC in his homeland, making his professional debut in the Belgian top flight at the age of just 16. out.stream powered by ADITION Signed by Anderlecht in 2012, he won two Belgian league titles and three Belgian Super Cups, before having loan spells with Αnorthosis Famagusta in Cyprus and FC Copenhagen in Denmark, where he won both the Danish Superliga and Danish Cup in 2015-16. After a successful spell back in Belgium with KV Kortrijk, the talented shot-stopper joined Gent in January 2019 and started all 29 of their top-flight fixtures last season, keeping 10 clean sheets, before the campaign was cut short due to COVID-19. The Belgian Under-21 international also played all 14 Europa League games for Gent last term, helping them reach the knockout stage. Kaminski, who will wear the number one shirt at Ewood Park, must now undergo a period of quarantine, before joining up with his new Rovers team-mates for training early next month. Welkom Thomas! Oh, and he kicked his teammate in the groin so hard just a few weeks ago, that stitches were required at pitch side... https://sportlife.news/2020/soccer/gent-star-igor-plastun-left-needing-stitches-in-his-penis-after-horror-injury-as-his-own-team-mate-knees-him-in-groin/
  16. Does anyone know where he is or what he is actually doing in his current role as CEO? He needs finding and bringing to account 🤐🤬
  17. It's nearly a couple of months now since BRFCS.com was relaunched, to coincide with the start of the new season. Rovers survived transfer deadline day without any signings and we survived the busiest day yet since we took over without any outages ... I think we win that one. Looking at the stats that we have available it's clear that most users have the forum part of the site bookmarked and drop straight in on the forum without visiting the front page, and to be fair that's what we expected but it does mean you might miss some of the stuff on the front page so here's a little summary. Every Friday we post a collection of the *ahem* best tweets of the week, mostly amusing but some are touching or uplifting. Here's last weeks This Week on Twitter, Delap's Derbies have made their way from Twitter to BRFCS, the amazing Blackburn Roverseas has returned with his fantastic match previews and more on Youtube. There's also the Match Center where you can see the upcoming fixtures and past results. The individual games have team sheets, match time lines, past meetings between the clubs and scores from all the other games that effect Rovers. We're launching a new feature here before the Luton game ... 12 shiny internet points for anyone who can guess what it is.
  18. First start for Ireland tonight. I can see him making the place his own. Let's see how his partnership with Rovers favourite Duffy goes. It's actually 3 at the back with Egan from Sheffield United.
  19. Now we have some serious debate, .....Assam every time!
  20. 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.
