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.

Blackburn finished 15th last season, we beat them at their place and got a draw at our place despite playing the game with 10 men for 70 mins.  They've lost both of their league games so far and only managed to scrape past Oldham in the cup with two goals in injury time I think?   This isn't a dig at you but why do we insist on talking mediocre teams up as though they are something else?  They are at best a middling Championship side with a couple of good players.  To be fair, we might not be any more than that this season but I can't describe Blackburn as a decent side based on what I've seen last season and at the start of this one.  That doesn't mean I think we're gonna win because I don't know where we are at as a team right now ?

I think that's what it is essentially, I don't think we are much better than them. Right now, I think we're both decent sides and not much else. I think they're capable of doing better than they have and I expect us to do worse than we did in terms of last season's performances.

Friend for Coulson tomorrow and I think the rest will stay the same. 

Woody said Friend covers 2 positions for us and is delighted to have him back. I think Friend is definitely in. I just hope he's in for Shotton and we give Bola a chance at left back again. Admittedly Bola wasn't great against Crewe, I mean very few were. But I reckon Shotton gives a goal away tomorrow if he starts. Hope that if he does play he proves me wrong, though.

Well, at some point he's going to have to pitch the new lads in because I doubt they were signed to be back up players.  Not if they were Woodgate's top targets or whatever.

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

Ever come home steaming after just popping out for one or two.....?

 

Tomorrrow, I think if Friend is fit he has to move into the centre next to Ayala. The full backs I would guess will be Howson and Coulson after the no-shows midweek, meaning Clayton keeps his place with Wing and Mcnair. Up top I cant see him dropping Ass for Browne and the other 2 dont deserve to be dropped so Fletch Britt and Marv for me. 

I would like to see Marv and Fletcher swap sides a bit, gives Blackburn something to keep an eye on and can identify a weakness. Britt needs a proper goal or 2 from open play as he must be kicking himself after another penalty miss.

 

I wouldnt be averse to Fletcher or Mcnair taking our penalties from now on

He won't prove you wrong and you know that full well. He's given a goal away every game so far I think so of course he will tomorrow.

I imagine bola should be more fit than friend since he’s just come back from injury, so should start? And what’s the deal with coulson I’ve missed what’s happened? ?

quad injury according to his dad, probs a couple weeks out.

I've got a bad feeling about Downing today, it would be typical of him to turn it on against us.

Also a bit worried they might target Dijksteel like they did the other week when he was still a Charlton player. Could be better starting Howson at RB with him on the bench.

You think Dijksteel will start? Surely howson will keep his place? Yeah

    • I can't see anything in the laws that says that. It does say that an injured goalkeeper doesn't have to leave the field of play to receive treatment, and that in itself prevents play from restarting until the keeper has received treatment, but it doesn't say anything specific about goalkeeper injuries stopping play. The ref has to stop play if they deem a player to be seriously injured, but I wouldn't class stepping on someone's heel as a serious injury. Which I think is reinforced by the fact De Gea was up and about walking within a minute. It also say the ref "allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured" and if Fred had stepped on any other Man United player, I definitely think that would be deemed only a slight injury and waved on.
    • Btw. does anyone know if the club do half-season online match tickets, like they do with normal season tickets? I vowed never to buy a match as long as Warnock was manager, but I might change my stance now, although I rarely get to see entire games due to other commitments.
    • Yeah I get that. It's probably the best time to not have midweek games with Fry and Payero getting back and the players learn the new routines and build up more fitness. But that still doesn't change the fact, that I want games.
    • If you follow the rule book it was the refs fault. The rules specifically say that the goalkeeper has to be fully functional at all time for the game to be continued. It was Arsenals luck that the ref didn't see he was down injured and blew his whistle before the ball had gone in. It's the refs responsibility to stop play as soon as the keeper isn't functional. That is what makes it controversial. If a keeper is hurt while trying to stop the ball from going into the net ie. bangs his head against the post and the ball goes in then it's obviously a goal. But if the keeper is down hurt before the 2nd 3rd or whatever touch then the ref has to stop play. 
    • Have a great time, that man. Hope the boys make you proud ,Enjoy the Legends Lounge & the party. .........  Travelling is a complete pain these days. Im off to Tenerife next week via Stansted so i need locator forms going into Spain, PCRS test & locator forms  coming back to the UK & again a locator form coming back to Ireland. All worth it though........... I love the way people on Forums ask "Does anyone know a bar in "wherever" where i can watch the match. In other words- I am in "wherever" & i want everyone to know it,  BTW Does anyone know a Bar in Costa Adeje where i can watch Sky Sports?!
