Hi very long time reader, and I usually love reading what people have got to say but do people really think we are relegation candidates if we don’t win our next match. I know it has not been the grea

Saturday 17th August 2019 - 3pm KO - Ewood Park Preview: Both sides come into this fixture following home league cup fixtures against lower league opposition - Blackburn oversaw a battling O

Ok far too many members have now been made aware that in the opinion of Riverside Dreamer moderating action by Boro_Unger was unfair and uncalled for and some members were siding with his views.

Woodgate Press conference decent today... I feel still doing with the media:

 

Comments:

Crewe - First half was negative, 2nd half was a lot better when Britt, Fletcher, McNair came on and that's the positive he took from it. The game didn't give him much to think about for Blackburn selection. He expected the 'different' starting 11 to be knocking his door down to get a place in the League team and thinks that didn't happen at all. The team is simple to pick now. 

Blackburn - Still got beliefs how he want's us to play, it's a working progress and plans to keep going. Praises Friend and Howson massively and says these are the go to players how they are like everyday - Others should be following these leaders. 

Booing - Not bothered/not worried, understands why and laughed it off. Happy that people were cheering more at the end of the game and expects it due to a small section of the fans not wanting him at the start, and wont give him much time. 

Fans - appreciates how good the majority have been so far.

 

Is it normal for one person to ask 99% of the questions?!

Maybe Gestede's 'bilateral hamstring tightness' is actually sickness and diarrhoea? I hear it's been doing the rounds recently. A bit like Gestede's agent trying to find anyone willing to take on a knackered old shire horse.

I guess there's not much to talk about right now, it's early days and I'd assume local media don't want to put a great deal of pressure on him yet whilst national media couldn't care less right now.

Plus, the questions aren't finished at that point, he speaks to written media afterwards which is the (probably) more specialised sports writers at the Gazette/Echo etc.

If we don't get a result here, big relegation battle for us this season boys. We don't have the quality, cant keep blaming officials and having an unproven manager is not a great mix. He can talk but he needs to start showing us. Gestede's contract needs to be terminated and removed from the club. The fact that they start him is very worrying to me. Anyway very interesting match tomorrow. 

Hi very long time reader, and I usually love reading what people have got to say but do people really think we are relegation candidates if we don’t win our next match. I know it has not been the greatest of starts to the season but it’s only in its infancy. The crew game was what it was, a mid week game where the majority of the players just did not turn up. I am not saying this squad is even close to be pushing the top teams but it’s still got plenty of top level players who have the experience to grind out results (the old TP way) if need be. We wanted more excitement and I am sure we will see it, just don’t feel the doomsday button needs to be pressed just yet

I'd be very careful if I were you, it's dangerous to be rational and have level headed views ?

Yep, we got off to an absolute flyer last year and then gradually slipped down the table. Norwich were around the relegation zone, Sheffield United midtable. Can't put much stock into early season results, it's nice to get some points on the board but it's not like we're in bad trouble if we lose this game...

Exactly. People freaking out just need to look at last season! Norwich didn't win for 8 games or something, I'm pretty sure their first win was against us.

Going back a few years does anyone else remember Readings promotion season where they were relegation candidates until christmas and then went up automatically? That was nuts.

Am afraid it's the social media and 24 hour news generation that means there is no patience anymore. This will be our third league game, you can't really say how the season will pan out until mid October and even then there's scope for a big turnaround. For what it's worth I think this will be a season of transistion with us flirting with play offs and perhaps relegation in equal measure. I for one will be happy to see steady progress both on and off the pitch towards our 'new model' being implemented.

Believe me, we will struggle, we needed that great start last year for the confidence and the points. Granted there are some absolute awful teams in the division but we could be one of them too. With a poor management team in place and lack of experience or a plan B it is not looking good. I hope I am wrong.

Come onnn, where's that optimism that your username promises! I think Woody will learn a lot this year, he does seem a little green at the moment but we've got a strong core of players.

Sometimes teams who start badly continue badly and it ends badly.  I bet there are more examples of that than teams starting badly and winning promotion.

    • If that was the case, every keeper out there would just feign death and fall over whenever the ball was anywhere near their goal and every game would end 0-0 for all eternity.
    • Nice to hear Wilder was complimentary of Leo in saying he has really taken to him. I know people might say people should have a a job on merit and not emotion but with Leo it seems he here on both counts.   I guess its nice knowing there someone in the set up who genuinely has the same passion and love for the club we fans do. And that he appreciated by the new boss as much as he is by us fans.
    • Well let’s hope the weather favours those making the journey and the predicted blank of snow holds off.  I can remember my early days pumped up full of beer travelling around the country to games in the back of freezing vans. The worst I remember was a crammed Luton huddled together in the compartment above the cab trying to stay alive. The spilt beer and urine had turned to ice sending everyone flying every time it stopped, took off or cornered. The only stops allowed were for petrol, or a pub so containers a pipe and funnel were essential equipment.  Although I did hire a new Ford Granda in 1980 for a 1 - 1 cup night match at Portsmouth. Terry Cochrane scored, latter we became good friends, but it was a toxic atmosphere and lost my bother who took off while being threatened. Drove around town until we found him being chased down the street by a few hundred agitated morons. Picked him up on the move but someone cracked the windscreen. I remember leaving work at lunch, drove down and back after the game and in to work next day. BORO mad back then.  
    • I didn't see the problem with it personally, whatever the rules actually are, I feel like it should be a goal. It's not a foul as its a challenge by his own player. It's not a head injury so it doesn't need immediate attention. And you're gonna have a hard time convincing me he's not making the most of that just to stop play anyway. Admittedly, he probably doesn't realise himself who's actually stood on his foot but note that by the time the shot hits the back of the net, there only seems to be one player who realises he's down and is asking for play to be stopped... the man who stood on his foot to begin with.
