Re: Quarantine in the Nordic Bakeware Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Luton Town, Sat 30 Jan 2021, KO 1500

Rothwell and Downing were both poor today and needed to come off, but why elliott? Harvey on one wing and Dolan on the other seems a pretty lethal combination, although it would leave us a tad short on height in the box.

Re: Quarantine On the Hotseat Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City, Sat 16 Jan 2021, KO 1500

Conceding the first goal has been at the root of our problems. Once the opposition is forced to come out and attack, different game altogether.

Re: Rovers vs. Doncaster, FA Cup: Post-match

After their experience with multi choice managers Venkys will be understandably reluctant to wield the axe, particularly in the light of some of the antics going on at Sheffield Wednesday, Watford and other clubs. Nevertheless I'm with most fans who are willing for Mowbray to see the season out - he...

Re: Quarantine in the New Year Edition: Birmingham City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 2 Jan 2021, KO 1500

No one has mentioned Kaminski who brought off the save of the season after the Brum sub was clear through in the box. And Douglas has earned another game.

Re: Quarantine with Igor Tudor Edition: Stoke City v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 19 Dec 2020, KO 1500

Injuries to Wharton, Williams and Ayala taking their toll. We appear to only attack with menace on the right hand side with Elliott and Nyambe. Douglas and Gallagher just don't operate together well. I'd be happy for Dolan, Butterworth or Downing to get a start on the left wing on Boxing Day along w...

Re: Quarantine at the Dinner Table Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Rotherham, Wed 16 Dec 2020, KO 1945

I was almost embarrassed when Arma put that in. I drew three conclusions from that game. We still haven't resolved the left back position, Ayala is our best cb and Buckley could do with another twelve months. I appreciate that fatigue and injuries force TM in using players that should be rested, and...

Re: Quarantine in the Aviary Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Norwich City, Sat 12 Dec 2020, KO 1500

The possession stats are misleading. We do an enormous amount of passing in our own half, passing back to Kaminski etc. Lenihan nearly scored an og by passing back to his goalkeeper from near on the half way line. If we had half as much possession but in the opponents half that would be significant....

Re: Quarantine with the Beekeeper Edition: Brentofrd v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 5 Dec 2020, KO 1700

Brereton, Evans, Williams, Wharton, Douglas, Travis, Bennett, JRC, Dack -is a return in sight for any of these? Fit players are a bit thin on the ground at the moment.

Re: Quarantine On Night Shift Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Millwall, Wed 2 Dec 2020, KO 1945

Who would have thought at the beginning of the season that we were hoping for Wharton to be back? The lad has improved immensely, certainly not in Tosin's class yet, but a darned sight better than Ayala, who looked a tad over the top as a player last night. With Douglas and Wharton back we have a fa...

Re: Quarantine in the Barn Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Barnsley, Sat 28 Nov 2020, KO 1500

That's the difference from last season when we'd have dominated play and lost by the odd goal.
Does anyone else dislike the ifollow commentary? Much prefer Andy Bayes and Kevin Gallagher on Radio Lancs.

Re: Quarantine in a hat edition: Blackburn Rovers @ Luton

So important to have strength in depth. Holtby, Travis, Evans and Dack missing but Rothwell and hopefully Downing back, however I'm guessing Buckley will get a start. Not sure what to make of this lad - got stacks of promise but I can't help thinking he's not quite ready yet.

I honestly don't want to see Ayala playing. He didn't inspire a lot of confidence for me, seemed like he has a completely different skill set to what we need with our play style.
I still can't quite believe that Ayala is Rovers' highest paid player.
