FULL TIME: Wolves 1 Blackburn Rovers 1

ROGER Johnson’s leveller saw Wolves hit back to hold Blackburn Rovers to a draw in Gary Bowyer’s final game in caretaker charge.

Jordan Rhodes’ 26th-minute penalty put Rovers into the lead but Johnson ghosted in unmarked to head an equaliser with 16 minutes left.

Rhodes struck his 14th goal for Rovers in the 26th minute after Ruben Rochina had been tripped by Bakary Sako.

The Rovers striker had earlier been unable to steer an effort on target after racing clear, but Jake Kean had to save well at the other end to deny Kevin Foley.

Rochina had a shot saved early in the second half as he attempted to make it 2-0 but Johnson headed in a cross from Jamie O’Hara to equalise.

The match was Bowyer's last as caretaker boss, with Michael Appleton confirmed as Rovers' new manager two hours before the game.

Bowyer had won his previous three games in temporary charge.

Rovers: Jake Kean, Todd Kane, Scott Dann, Grant Hanley (Gael Givet 81), Martin Olsson, Colin Kazim-Richards, Jason Lowe, Danny Murphy, Simon Vukcevic (Morten Gamst Pedersen 56), Ruben Rochina (Josh Morris 80), Jordan Rhodes. Subs not used: Seb Usai, Diogo Rosado, David Goodwillie, Nuno Gomes.

I'll take the point but Appleton must wonder what he's walking into. Wolves were there for the taking. And Jason Lowe is not a midfielders sister. Awful again.

Compo to Kean,

replace with even worse manager!

compo to him when sacked!

compo to Blackpool for a manager they could have got a few months ago for (near enough) free!

If you put the last 3 B********ds bold managers together, you could make a pawn brokers sign!

passingfootball says...

we wanted more from the attackers, not enough shots on target, If you dont go for the jugular and take liberties while you are on top you give the other team and opportunity of getting back in the game, thats what happened, you cant feel comfortable without at least a 2 goal margin, thab said if rovers keep getting an average of 7 points every three games for the rest of the season then thats taking us to the promotion spots

Stop moaning you set of jokers.
A point away at a team out to impress their new gaffer is a decent point.
I said earlier, we got carried away beating Barnsley, Bristol City and lack **** McLeish Forest.
The results and performances in those games was down to the opposition as well as I fortunate goals to give us leads in those games.
We have taken small steps forward and slightly stopped the rot but have a marathon to go and can only progress together as a team and its supporters.

I thought the entire midfield was average to be honest. Wolves were walking through it at times. However, the away point isn't a bad point when all's said and done.

Rochina, again, showed glimpses of what he could do as a type of trequartista in a stable team.

Thanks for restoring some faith in our players, Gary Bowyer.

Venkys get out.

Murphy's interview made interesting viewing. He seemed to me pretty unipressed to say the least that Bowyer has not been left to carry on. I only hope that he and the rest of the players who the LT say are unhappy are able to be professional enough to put aside these feelings and do a job for Appleton. I think his first job is to get the dressing room on his side.

The dressing room don't give two hoots for Appleton and why should they as he is a complete no mark. Just like the dressing room at Blackpool where they don't give two hoots that he has gone because he was useless there.
Just waiting now for The Global Adviser to announce the criteria against which Appleton will be sacked for failure.

Martin Olsson. Put him on the wing or sell him for as much as we can get for him. Absolutely uselss at full-back week in week out. His fault for the goal. Gets beaten and allows crosses into the box so many times during every game. So annoying and so predictable. Glad wth a point because we were so crimnally limited atacking-wise. How many shots on goal??

Just like to say, GB and Terry Mc - well done and a big thank-you. The first time in a long time we have had a bit of stability and the players have appeared to be playing for the manager, which hasn't been seen for a long while. Well done then to the clowns off the pitch who have now decided to change things and make a decision which is p*ss poor even by their standards

The sooner Olsson goes the better - he is effing useless. As for the game, the quality was minimal. Can anyone pass? And when they try, do they have to use any part of their only good foot to try and do it? Both sides were absolute sh1t to watch.
*
I hope the players haven't spat their dummies out after MA's apppointment was announced - certainly Murphy was bad today and his thoughts on the new manager were pretty clear.
*
The only plus points were Kane, Kean, and Rhodes managing to score. *
*
What a sh1t league this is.

if you watch their goal scott dann literally ducks under the cross in case someone is coming near him. i thought centre halves were meant to put their body on the line when necessary? not brave enough. when he got whacjed at barnsley by accident he was brave for the remainder. tonight he was wet again. needs to grow a pair and rule that area like he did for 60 mins at barnsley. every other time ive seen him he has been too timid.

Well by all accounts this was Shaw's choice. If the team don't play for Appleton perhaps Shaw should have listened to the players, oh yes, and most of the supporters.

Why are we full of doom and gloom? Ok I agree five managers in such a short space of time isn't good for the players but they like us have got to give the new manager a chance, for all we know he may be the best thing that has happened to us in the last few years. Negative comments about him because he is bald is pathetic, some fans just moan for the sake of it, give the poor man a chance and just imagine how he must feel knowing the big challenge he has ahead of him especially winning over the players and the fans.
I hope the players accept him as he has got a good reputation for his coaching abilities and as for the fans we should all get behind him, he is only young and thinks very highly about our beloved club.
Good Luck Mr Appleton
RTID!!!!

I think we did well to get a point tonight. We created very few chances and, on watching it back when I got home, we were fortunate to get the penalty. Rhodes took it excellently although I did wonder at the time why Murphy didn't take it. Kean had a good game, Kane looked a bit shaky at times but Kazim-Richards was awful for a change. How he managed to stay in the pitch for 95 minutes is anybody's guess. Still, it's a good point against a Wolves side who looked like they were giving their all for Saunders. Well done Gary and Terry, the 100% record may have eluded you but you were still undefeated.

On a slightly separate note, I was just flicking through the channels and noticed that they're showing a documentary about Burnley on BBC1. Weird stuff...

It's a good point considering all the unnecessary upheaval, caused by the boardroom power struggle, culminating in the ridiculous decision to employ a manager with such a poor record. Because that's what this is all about; a power struggle; Shaw flexing his muscles to show Borat that he's the boss. Pathetic!

Anyway, well done to GB and his team for doing such a good job over the last few weeks. It's very reassuring to know that there are some decent, sensible people still left at the madhouse.

The new manager as a hell of a job on his hands as it is without so called supporters ready to jump on his back, i thought these players were playing for gb but not on that performance , no one could hold the ball , Richards what a joke apparantley he likes twitter, well he did enough on the pitch last night to be sent off , this guy needs sorting out back down the m6 ..appy.
And unless they spend a lot of money Blackburn are going nowhere fast with this squad of incompetents, dire all over the pitch back to front ,to the bench and that includes Rhodes no pace cannot hold the ball and shirked out of a one on one with there keeper to put the game out of sight, boyer has worked with these misfiring misfits.
One good thing appy takes no prisoners you play for him or he will dispose of you , Murphy ,you will no all about appy come monday.

I'm not sure.... One thing is certain this squad isn't good enough and the way Venkeys do business it's going to get weaker, if that was possible!!

The problem with a lot of Blackburn so called supporters,/ i prefer to call them glory hunters or jack walker inheritants/ is you have been spoilt , and you are now acting like the spoilt brats you are, a disgrace to the town and the club and football in general, not only do you mock the owners who were the only ones intrested in buying the club, you also slate the walker trust , who have kept the club going since Jack Walkers untimely death, then you turn on ex players and managers alike.
Some of you deserve no more glory for a while let's say 25 years , which is the time it took the club to get from the old div2 to the premiership, but i can tell you doommongers this .....the fans from 1966 through the 2nd and 3rd divisions stand head and shoulders above you.

Good point under difficult circumstances last night. Wolves were fired-up for the win but we held them well and showed some quality at times. One defensive slip for their goal otherwise a decent display.

Plus points Rochina showed class again. Murphy linked things up well with some neat short passing. KR put himself about like a bull and unsettled the crowd and their defenders. Jake Kean looked confident and capable in goal. Scott did well apart from the goal. And no disrespect to Adam Henley but the biggest plus point on the night for me was that we had a proper threat down the right-hand side. The new lad Kane looked good and worked well too with Vukevic and caused Wolves quite a few problems.

Well done Team GB! That was a nice and very important unbeaten run that our new manager can take further over the next few weeks when some winnable games are lined-up.

Umm. Funny how fans see things differently. I thought they were bloody awful apart from the goalie . Have a look at Cardiff. Now that is a team we are competing against for promotion. Notice any difference?

I'm thinking there must have been a bottle or two of the local rouge last night FR. I admire your spirit but we were on the back foot for 75% of the game and struggled against a team who couldn't hit Road Runners ar5e if they were stood on the next step !

Total respect for Team GB, but if we are honest they have had a lot of good fortune with opening goals ! Lets call the penalty 'a bit iffy', but it totally changed the flow of the game as both teams seemed in shock until half time.

Still, onwards and upwards, I will be 100% behind the new manager, yet again.

I think last night point was a good one wolves have a new manager the players were out to impress him. He brought in new back room staff change the diet etc they were up for it last night. So it's a good point under the circumstance. I agree we did not play well last night was it because players were unhappy with the change in management who knows. I just hope the fans and club get behind johnny Appleseed or what ever his name is .
And I just hope we hang to Garry and terry they should of being given to the end of the season but looks to me shaw and company are now running the circus
I think last night point was a good one wolves have a new manager the players were out to impress him. He brought in new back room staff change the diet etc they were up for it last night. So it's a good point under the circumstance. I agree we did not play well last night was it because players were unhappy with the change in management who knows. I just hope the fans and club get behind johnny Appleseed or what ever his name is .

Great post, most post walker fans are spoilt and clueless. Its bad enough that venkys have made us a laughing stock but these plastic fans want to moan about everything. They want to pick their dummies up and support their team through rough and rougher then hopefully for better.
So only people over sixty qualify as "true" Rovers' fans?

You can't help being under forty (which I am not, by the way) and if all you've seen is a well run club playing mostly in the top flight, the current situation is all the more difficult to believe or understand.

People mock Venkys? They made a lot of promises when they offered to but the club and it may have seemed a good idea at the time. Nobody could not predict they would renege on every one of them. They may well own a successful poultry business but Venkys have acted like the total football novices they are; they have made themselves look like idiots, embarrassing everyone who supports Rovers in the process.

Poking fun at them is the very least they deserve.

68 or 69 on the riverside for me, i was 8.

no jack walker glory hunter for me. first season ticket bought for my birthday in 1972/73 season.....watched rovers all over the place including stuff like craven cottage with a crowd of less than 2,500, stafford rangers, welling utd etc, etc.....so your classification of plastic fans is hugely inappropriate.

anyhow if a kid was, say 7 in 1991/92 season.....they will be approaching 28 now and a fully fledged adult whose opinion is as entirely valid as yours; so in your childish manner - stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

my wore moment as a rovers fan - kevin stonehouse's winner vs bristol rovers at eastville proving worthwhile, travelling back on my own to sheffield on train and getting battered by derby fans (travelling back from cardiff) and arriving at sheffield station to be greeted by three swansea fans that i knew from college giving me grief for what remained of the night.

virtually all of us on here have earned our stripes and don't start giving others "i'm a bigger fan than you". its not big and its not clever and the only person who looks bitter is you.

i assume if you have any young relatives who are under 30 and are rovers supporters - you are much happier that they support rovers than either scumchester or grannystabbers or bin-dippers.

rovers is a love affair - many ups and many downs, but that love is not unequivocal and if your partner keeps smacking you in the face, playing away (metaphorically, not literally) and basically takes you for granted - there is only so much that some can take before you tell them to do one. i admire your resolve to keep going back and can only recommend the charities that look after battered wives.

You old bugger

I drove all the way to eastville(now a tescos)and back in an old chevette by my self (last minute whim).....watched the game from the open end next to the motorway....do remember going to the portakabin for a leak...'twas like waterfall down the terrace steps.....remember seeing running battles across the M5/M6 with rovers and Swansea fans......oh and for some strange thing I remember a flag on a motorway bridge ....Aston villa 1st div champs.....what year was that anorak ?

simples - that time of life is easy to date as i was at uni or moving down to cockneyland and moving houses every year. and can remember seasons by which house i used to travel back to.

78/79 - final 6th form year (darwen) rovers got relegated - jim iley fired highlight of season duncan mckenzie goal vs weztam first game of season

79/80 - first year uni (hillsborough) - howard kendall - highlight of season 3-0 at hillsborough and walking to game from my new house and then later 1-0 at mansfield (garner) on a steaming hot day and kendall doing half time team talk on pitch with team eating their oranges, chesterfield (a) 14k and the reverse game at ewood sheff w when i went on a minibus of wednesday fans from the pub where i worked - we got beat but one of best atmospheres ever.

80/81 - the aforementioned season (chorlton and norfolk park sheffield) lowlight of season - bristol rovers.

Good morning, 8 Balls,
I am sorry I missed your scrawling overnight. My response to you is that far from "the end is nigh"' the end has long since happened at Ewood Park. All we are witnessing now is the rotting of the deceased corpse. When we are seeing episodes like the Judan Ali business on a weekly basis that much is pretty obvious. I don't you would disagree with that. If you only had eyes to see.
My advice to you, should you be seeking it, is to save your entrance money on Saturday afternoons and either put it in the bank or give it to charity.

Dear 1952 ( a great year, by the way),
Why should I give him a chance? Give me a good reason. It is a miserable appointment and one that none of the fans want. Granted that is not Appleton's fault. The problem lies with the Venkys and the truth is that while the Venkys are there Rovers are a lost cause. Utterly lost. To those who argue that non one else was interested in buying the club I would respond strongly that no one was the better option.
Let us see what follows.

fair enough - garner came on fire in the second half of that season when we went from near the bottom to third.

if my memory lets me down i am know i am right about the half time. my regret that season was i couldn't go to bury as i had an exam that day and the next. waste of time anyhow as my brother who lived in leeds (and could pick up radio blackburn ) played me the whole match commentary down the phone so i didnt do any swotting anyhow.

GREAT DAYS!

anyhow if a kid was, say 7 in 1991/92 season.....they will be approaching 28 now and a fully fledged adult whose opinion is as entirely valid as yours; so in your childish manner - stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

my wore moment as a rovers fan - kevin stonehouse's winner vs bristol rovers at eastville proving worthwhile, travelling back on my own to sheffield on train and getting battered by derby fans (travelling back from cardiff) and arriving at sheffield station to be greeted by three swansea fans that i knew from college giving me grief for what remained of the night.

virtually all of us on here have earned our stripes and don't start giving others "i'm a bigger fan than you". its not big and its not clever and the only person who looks bitter is you.

i assume if you have any young relatives who are under 30 and are rovers supporters - you are much happier that they support rovers than either scumchester or grannystabbers or bin-dippers.

rovers is a love affair - many ups and many downs, but that love is not unequivocal and if your partner keeps smacking you in the face, playing away (metaphorically, not literally) and basically takes you for granted - there is only so much that some can take before you tell them to do one. i admire your resolve to keep going back and can only recommend the charities that look after battered wives.
You old bugger

I drove all the way to eastville(now a tescos)and back in an old chevette by my self (last minute whim).....watched the game from the open end next to the motorway....do remember going to the portakabin for a leak...'twas like waterfall down the terrace steps.....remember seeing running battles across the M5/M6 with rovers and Swansea fans......oh and for some strange thing I remember a flag on a motorway bridge ....Aston villa 1st div champs.....what year was that anorak ?
Was that the end of season game at Bristol when NorthEnd had to us a favour and beat Swansea at Deepdale and failed ?
