RoversSwiss says

The new manager always says we have a talented squad, there may be some players with skill. but we are weak and we are slow. We have the weakest midfield in the division.

Appelton, if he is any good, should realise quickly that he has to add some power and strength to a weak team. No chance of promotion this season and we will never hang on to Jordan Rhodes for next season, without him we would be bottom of the league.

Well done Venky's you just could not stand that things were going well for once could you!!! You are complete inept morons and destroying our club.

3 back to back wins for the first time in god knows how long and you have to interfere, didn't it occur to you that a change had come about in the players!!

Why don't you just disappear back down the drain you crawled out of? I personally will never accept you no matter what you do now and I am sure that not many fans will either. TRASH!!!!

As for Appleton keep taking the money pal another one on the gravy train!!!!!

4:16pm

Rochina flashes a dangerous shot across goal, it is cleared

4:12pm

4:09pm

4:06pm Sat 19 Jan 13

A Darener says

What would we do without Jordan?

4:09pm

Charlton should be 2-1 ahead but Dale Stephens misses a sitter with Kean out of goal

4:07pm

GOAL 1-1. Brilliant diving header from Rhodes from Kazim Richards' cross. Lancashire Telegraph: THREE WISE MEN Rovers trio of goalscorers Jordan Rhodes, Colin Kazim-Richards and Ruben Rochina celebrate the Spaniard’s opening goal

3:30pm

Charlton should be 2-0 up. Kean saves from Jackson well and Lawrie Wilson's effort on rebound is cleared off line by Olsson. Charlton well on top

3:28pm

GOAL Charlton. Brilliant finish from Dale Stephens, after Solly had lost Kazim-Richards down the right.

3:25pm

Kazim heads straight at keeper from Rochina's corner - good chance

3:21pm

3:15pm

Ewood resembling something of a ghost ship at the moment. Charlton playing neat football without lookink dangerous

3:02pm Sat 19 Jan 13

BRFC0808 says

Shame on the Crowd!!!! Its time they learnt manners!!!

3:08pm

Rochina runs half the length of the pitch but eventually gets crowded out as he nears the goal. Slow start from Rovers

3:06pm


 

3:02pm

Game under way here. 'Venky's out' sung by some and 'one Jack Walker' heard too

3:01pm

2:59pm

MICHAEL Appleton has stuck with the same side who drew with Wolves last time out, for his first match as Rovers boss.

Josh King is still out with a hamstring injury, so Appleton keeps faith with the side Gary Bowyer picked.

The match will be watched by club owners Venky's, who were greeted by jeers from outside.

ROVERS: Kean, Olsson, Dann, Hanley, Kane, Murphy, Lowe, Vukcevic, Rochina, Kazim-Richards, Rhodes

SUBS: Usai, Givet, Pedersen, Morris, Goodwillie, Rosado, Gomes

CHARLTON: Ben Hamer, Cedric Evina, Johnnie Jackson, Michael Morrison, Matt Taylor, Dale Stephens, Scott Wagstaff, Bradley Pritchard, Yann Kermorgant, Chris Solly, Lawrie Wilson

SUBS: David Button, Danny Green, Bradley Wright-Phillips, Rhys Wiggins, Ricardo Fuller, Callum Harriott, Dorian Dervite-Vaussoue

I would like to think that Venky's will take a message away with them from the Rovers fans but sadly they wont not sure if they are just pig thick or dont give a crap or worse still both. To make matters worse Bumley are starting to pull clear of us now. Time to act this has to be the most humiliating period in our whole history!!!

HANG YOUR HEADS IN SHAME VENKY'S AND EVERYONE ELSE ON YOUR CORRUPT GRAVY TRAIN!!!!!!!

The squad is not good enough full stop!! With the exception of Rhodes who gets no service everyone else is distinctly average. Every quality player has been sold by Venky's who clearly left early for fear of things getting ugly!!

Appleton had the same players at his disposal as Gary Bowyer but look at the result!! This is a results driven game and a quick look at Appleton's record is a pretty good indication of what is on the cards.

I am beginning to have an issue with football in general as it is the only business on the globe where people can make millions from mediocrity and it has to stop as it is obscene in the extreme.

How many people walk away from a job with a poor track record and step into a double your money post??


INSANITY!!!!!! IT HAS TO STOP!!!!

10 points off of the top six, 10 points off of the bottom three. Some of the players seem to decide when they want to play and when they don't. Overall a poor performance.

He needs to sign some of his own players if he wants to build the team he wants.

Venky's got a reality check today to say the least. It's now obvious that investment is needed over the next 2 weeks, I hold my breath though.

To all the optimists of the last week. What happened? I am going back to being my usual pessimistic self. At least I won't be disappointed by anything that happens. I was full of great expectations for today. More fool me. Come back Gary, at least you got the best out of the players. Venky's obviously could not put up with the rubbish we have had to for the last two years. Probably gone to watch Blackpool.

I agree with you r comments. It is not that we want to be pessimistic but everytime we see an opportunity for optimism it is quickly dashed on the rocks

We all want things to improve but need it quickly for the sake of our sanity!!

Look where we were when Venky's joined up and look where we are now?

Even Burnley are pulling clear of us now which has to be the ultimate humiliation, it means nothing to Venky's but it is heartbreaking for the Rovers Fans.

What happened to the enquiry that the FA were allegedly carrying out? It took less time to produce the report on Watergate! We need this idiots out and now!

I really don't understand what Blackburn fans are booing about. you have to look at the players as well. They are on the field not the owners., if they sold up who buy Rovers? remember Mike Ashley and Newcastle?

The defence is below average and the midfield is no different. They need to invest in these areas because it's where the problems are. No help up front and defending is atrocious.

absolute embarassment of a club and fans who have brought it all on themselves, should have kept Steve Kean in charge and you would be up near Burnley with a chance of promotion.

Blackburn deserve to go down for the terrible treatment of the owners and management by the supporters. Fans should get behind their team and realise that you are nott a premier league club, you are punching above your weight to even be in the championship. get realistic and back your owners, without them you wouldnt have a club to support cos nobody else wants to put up with such pathetic support.


Really feel sorry for the Venkys who have nvested heavily in the club and think whatever they do won't be enough for you lot. Appleton should get out while he can before the shambles of a support hound him out and dent his CV.
