Blackburn Rovers V Boro 0-0

Recommended Posts

Really should win that game, just not quite enough quality to do it. You have to wonder why Roberts doesn't come on, I don't think Spence offered that much defensively today so I don't think we'd have lost much taking him off. Got to think the only reason is he's just not fit enough.

Best I've seen us play in a long long time. Really happy with the commitment, passing and all round gameplay, shame we couldn't get the goal the performance deserved.

Roberts must be taking a daily dump in Warnock's cereal to not get a cameo in this game. Think he might just have had a good impact over Marv.

Blackburn changed it in the second half and made it harder for us, but on attempts and effort we deserved three points. Thought McNair was outstanding, mom for me, but also Dijksteel he was everywhere. We are looking such a good side, all pulling together and so well organised now, thank you NW for chasing away the dross and incompetence left by Pulis and Woodgate

Think Roberts was desperately needed there, I bet Warnock saw us start to sit back second half and thought "oh, can't risk Roberts now, he'll leave too much space"

But I just hate Boro have always struggled for goals the whole last decade why is it we struggle for goals no matter the player, manager or what we still struggle to put a ball into a net

Amazing first half, lack of depth in our squad showed second half. Roberts must not be anywhere near 100% fit because that game was crying out for him. Bringing on Johnson was never going to change the game and Akpom came on too late. I'd drop Britt for him next game, personally.

Still, a point away isn't bad but it does feel like two points dropped.

Its a poor result in a game we largely dominated., and we played some good football,  Britt is a luxury striker we can ill afford.

How on earth did we not take all 3 points is bewildering. First was half outstanding on the money all round effort and only lacked a good striker to fill his boots. A weakness that should have been addressed. The stats are eye boggling and go some way to proving Brit is not cutting it.. 
Second half was a bit of a bum clencher at times but we upped the game and played it out. I said I’d be happy with a point but feel we just dropped two how ironic but pleasing in away. 

NW the team need to be commended for turning the club around....

A team we historically struggle with, a goalkeeper out to prove us wrong, I'll take the point, keep the unbeaten run going and move on to the weekend.

It's 2 points lost, but NW is bringing the optimism back that games like this don't suck so bad.

    • Not just Roberts (x2) we have had Nmecha, Van le parra, Batth and Morrison all with very few appearances for us. I guess it will depend on whether the player is a youngster looking for experience, a lad looking to put himself in the shop window or someone they just want off the books.
    • That’s what I meant. It’s the same rules now for EU and non EU players. The rules for non EU players have been relaxed in line with the rules for EU players 
    • Redcar R I don't think it is down to the boots.  Browne stuck his leg well into the turf with an apparent intention of creating a "solid hip " to lever the player away.  We've all done it ! I was quite surprised that he got injured and tended to assume that it was because he'd used his inside leg to make it less obvious. I've seen a knee go back in again on its own but it is an odd and very upsetting sight to see a knee cap next to where is should be  
    • As far as I have read all countries have been put into different tiers and players are awarded points according to league, international games, caps etc. It doesn't matter if you are EU or non-EU. It's easier for some south american players than before Brexit but certainly not easier than a European. https://worldfootballindex.com/2020/12/work-permits-premier-league-post-brexit-english-clubs-efl-libertadores/
