Blackburn Rovers V Boro 0-0

Recommended Posts

Can’t help but think if Roberts came on round the 60th min mark, we’d have won that game. Surely must be injured?

Can't believe that ended 0-0. Not the worst result in the world and continues the unbeaten run

Our lack of quality in the final third will be what costs us this season i'm afraid, dominated the match and without a doubt should be coming away with 3 points.

Not exactly. Plenty of jabs from us but no real punches. Well defended by Blackburn.

Good performance, but feels like 2 points dropped rather than 1 point gained. Pressing high up the pitch was very effective and we should have made more of our corners. Onto Brentford.

Frustrating. 

Excellent first half, above average second half but we just couldn't put the ball in the net.

We definitely dropped a little in the second half and I was very disappointed with the substitutions. Johnson just doesn't affect the game, one goal doesn't change that. Game was crying out for roberts from about the 60th minute onwards. 

But, overall, a lot of positives to be taken from it. We have shown we can play a positive, progressive style of football while remaining every bit as solid at the back. Plenty of people have claimed that that couldn't be done but the proof is in the pudding. I hope it continues and we don't revert back at the first sign of a strong opposition.

2 glaring misses from corners cost us 3 points but what a excellent performance from us. Thought If he was slightly braver with his subs we could have had more of a goal threat/ killer ball.

    • Every football manager players eyes light up as they furiously scout South American regens.
    • Tav's injury has probably heightened the need for some creative flair needing to be added to the squad. Am I the only one that is wondering if it's the boots that Tav is wearing that is causing him to slip? The Ground staff didn't have a normal summer to reseed or relay the pitch or whatever they normally do but lets face it the Riverside pitch is still light years ahead of many if not most at this level. I didn't see Spurs or Man City players slipping any more than their lesser opponents in the cup. Come to think of it I didn't notice Blackburn players slipping much either. He seems to be wearing these laceless Mutator Predator boots (happy to be corrected) if my eyesight is not deceiving me. Are they also the same boots that Marcus Browne was wearing? If so that is two players down due to footwear as much as the state of the pitch. About time NW issued them with good old fashioned brown boots as I used to call them with real "men's" studs! Meanwhile we are now scouring for loans and additional wages that the Club can ill afford.
    • The new work permit rules will make it harder to sign European players but it will now be easier to sign players from outside the EU.
    • That's really sad. I think for the forseeable future we can't really buy top-level proven championship players. So we have to rely on international and young unproven players. I was a little bit worried last season when our new signing like Bola, Dijkstell and Browne did not deliever. I'm much more positive about the future this season, I think we have a solid squad now. If we do some smart transfers next season can be great.
    • Coulson has been well and truly frozen out since he gave that penalty away and I have a feeling Spence will be getting the stick after not tracking his man for the Blackburn goal.
