Appleton disappointed by late leveller

ROVERS boss Michael Appleton was a disappointed man after he saw his side concede a last-gasp spot kick to draw with Brighton tonight.

Appleton seemed set for a first win after Jordan Rhodes converted a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

But David Goodwillie's late foul gave Albion the chance to level - and David Lopez did just that.

"We controlled the game and their keeper was a lot busier than ours and a second goal would have killed the game," said Appleton.

"The most disappointing thing is 45 seconds before the penalty fourth official is screaming at the refereesaying the game is finished.

"To conceed after that is very disappointing but it was a silly challenge from David and he knows that but I am not going to harp on about that."

Thought it was a strange choice of sub when he brought him on for the other Olson - especially as we went defensive.

A lot better display than Saturday is the one consolation.

The substitution was disappointing, moving Kaz to left wing bad enough but to bring Goodie on who's not just short on games but massively short on confidence was just bizarre, he had plenty of experience on the bench as well. Very odd, as were subs against Charlton. on the plus side, they all seemed to stick to the game plan and were reasonably comfortable with it. Maybe cup game next up is a good thing.

A significant improvement on Saturday's shambles and against a much better side in Brighton than Charlton.

Defensively we were excellent, we looked organised and I couldn't see Brighton getting back into it.

Then up steps the referee. Seems to have bowed to Poyet's complaints in awarding 5 minutes injury time despite no injuries and only 4 subs. I was expecting much better considering the media love that Brighton get. What I saw was appalling from the Brighton players. They truly are Poyet's team.

Anyway, the positives were there for me. The play-offs were always going to be a push after the Berg debacle. I'm willing to back Appleton over the rest of this season and the start of next to see what he can do.

should have been 3 points but for someone to mess it up.

Appleton i am not fan of you but what have you gain nothing in football a silly signing by Shaw and venkys.

Gary Bowyer did a great job and these same players were not making mistake under him.

Thats my thoughts

Just got in from the match and the pub, have to say I enjoyed it. Not the best footballing performance, but a lot of the players put in a lot of hard work. The substitution was strange and i have never seen anyone more dejected than Goodwillie walk off a football pitch.

The atmosphere was good, even with the small crowd and we had a laugh. It was like the old days, we spent 15 minutes complaining about the price of the pies and a lot of the match being abusive to the Ref, which is how a football match should be.

We didn't win the match because we went too negative for the last 15 minutes when there were plenty of spaces in their defence to exploit. Martin Olsen very good, except for a stupid yellow card, his brother worked hard, Grant Hanley very very good and Dann and Lowe also good, Kean had to make his first save in the 75th minute. Defensively much better than of late.

Won't mention the negatives, so the best player was Richards, excellent, he was strong and very good on the ball.

Hopefully Appelton will bring in players to solve the problem areas, he needs a real strong man leader in midfield, but the players gave everything tonight, they were clearly very very disappointed at the end.

Too late to get promotion this year, but on tonights performance I think that Appleton can do a good job, given time.

The reason for this is that too often rovers have attempted to defend a 1-0 lead and conceded late on. Granted the same has happened tonight but personally I welcome the positivity of such a move.

I guess other people prefer to take a pessimistic view at any opportunity but not to worry I bet it must be a fulfilling life you live with the glass constantly being half empty!

Sorry forgot to add Brighton were a disgrace. Can't you tell they're managed by a south American. Diving, dropping like they've been shot from normal challenges, attempting to con the ref (who kept falling for it). Out and out cheating all night from players who have it in their psyche to gain unfair advantage. If Wigan, Bolton, we or any other non fashionable northern clubs ( I omit dingles from that cos not even a slimey little gringo would go to that 5hithole!) played like that we would be berated by the south east loving national media.
Didn't like poyet at chelsea and don't like him as a manager. He needs 10 pints of Thwaites finest, a fish supper and a slapping for his horrible antics!

Couldn't agree with you more. Despite the freezing weather and the end result, it was the most upbeat I've been during a rovers match since I can remember. Kazim-Richards was superb and Appleton's honesty after the match was refreshing!

Captain Dreckley says...

Disappointing with the late equaliser but in truth Rovers dominated the game and should have been so far out of sight it shouldn't have mattered. What happened on the pitch reflected Appletons earlier comments about too many like players in the squad. Kean had an idea of the type of player he wanted and bought all of the same not what you need in a team. For all our possession and dominance we lacked quality in the final ball. It's s point nearer safety and let's hope that Appleton can move a few on and bring in some variety and quality.

Does' t really matter we only got a point but disapointing to lose two points in the closing seconds of the match. Hope we learn from that, and take it on board for the future. We have almost no chance of qualifiying for the playoffs, as we will have to play nearly all of the teams above us AWAY and nearly all of the teams below us at HOME. so I think even if we were in the top six, it would take an enormous amount of luck to gain promotion. Lets hope we can build on this and put in a much better challenge next year. Hope Michael Appleton finds the money to buy an old Corporation Bus to park in front of the goals in the off season, because we need something better than we have at the moment, to stop conceding these late goals.

Based on the past two Championship seasons, to qualify for the playoffs, the (points) target to reach by the 46th game of the season, is (around) 75 points.

At the moment, Blackburn are 38 points off the pace, with 18 games to go. So mathematically, that means in these remaining games, Blackburn MUST win 12 and draw 2 - which really means anything more than 4 losses would be virtually kissing playoff dreams goodbye.

I'm sure MA / Blackburn is aware of this, as I'm sure Blackburn fans are as well, but to win 12 out of 18 sounds really feasible. While that sounds very heartening and all, cautiously optimistic Blackburn fans should remember that, at the time of writing this, the team is currently below others like Forest, Brighton and Burnley, who also fancy their chances of getting to the playoffs.

Yes, Michael Appleton, me too.

1 point in 6 from two home games.

10 points away from even a playoff position.

And a team that is playing dreadfully.

But on the French Rover side, at least that's one more point away from the relegation zone.

Hooray the fat useless Scottish Wayne Rooney contributes to a goal. Oh sht he's defending high up the pitch at the wrong end. Thick as....

There is a reason that he is low on confidence: he's not very good. I bet his mate Kean enjoyed that piece of boneheadedness though.

I have supported Rovers for many years,however the past 3 years have been horrible.

Ever since Venkys gained control of the club, things have been getting worse!. Their intentions may be honourable, but the way the owners have gone about running the club has been wrong!

The Brighton game showed a marked improvement on Saturdays game with Charlton. The main question for me is where did the 97 minutes come from?. The allotted time was 95?.

That said i just hope you give Michael Appleton a chance, it really annoys me when fans come out and ask for him to be sacked!. hes been in charge for 2 games, and people want him out already!

You need to give him the chance to turn things round, theirs no quick fix at this club, but if you give him the time i am confident that the future may look brighter than its been looking!

Rich Riley says...

The fourth official was screaming at the referee that the game was finished.
Well that might have been the case but the ref has obviously decided to add more time due to the idiots who wouldn't give the ball back when it flew into the Blackburn End during injury time and Jake Kean jumping under the ball when kicked back to him to take a free kick. Blatant timewasting.

What I would like to know is why we have never heard of Rovers being linked with anyone except that Barnsley defender? Is is because Shebby isnt involved with transfers any more as he used to say too much? maybe its all getting secretive like at other clubs maybe they are learning from their mistakes when they got gazumped with Jordan Rhodes decent striker but not worth 8 million quid.

rovers get 11 wins they will be guaranteed a playoff place, still not out of it, were not playing prem teams, in some parts of the game we need to go all out attack and practically win games in the first half with 2 or 3 goals, it comes as no suprise that the games won under bowyer were done by having at least 2 goal margin, take advantage of being a goal in front and double it, not nick a goal and sit back and inviting pressure late in the game, appleton made mention that he prefers defenders being vocal and if central defenders demanded from the central midfielders push up further and not step on their toes (even if they are tired) they could have prevented brighton even getting into the box and avoided a penalty.

berg and appleton have been unlucky with their substitutions, late in the game sub rosado conceded a late free-kick that lead to the goal against huddersfield, sub simon vuckevic gave away a free-kick fot burnley's goal, cut out the mistakes, rovers have allowed too many goals from unecessary set-pieces, we cant be helping the opposition with their goals they should have the really work for their goals,

rovers have failed to win in 9 games when they were in a winning position, and finished all of them in draws, even if we managed to win half of them wed have been 9 ponts better of and in a much healthier position with 48 points.

One thing we can agree on is that Brighton spend too much time, to quote Walshy - Diving, dropping like they've been shot from normal challenges, attempting to con the ref (who kept falling for it). Out and out cheating all night from players who have it in their psyche to gain unfair advantage.

To be honest I thought this was the best performance by a Rovers team that I have seen for some considerable time, ok there were a few errors here and there but there was no lack off effort, skill and for once a good shape to the team.

An added bonus was I could see their confidence growing as the game went on.

And if it hadn't been for their keeper who pulled off 3 or 4 decent saves, one of which would qualify for "Save of the season" if it had been a PL game.

Not going to criticise Goodwillie, he's probably still kicking himself.

Pleased with the overall performance, gutted we didn't get the points that performance really deserved.

Ignore the numpties posting on here, the almost certainly didn't go so their gabled mutterings mean nowt.

Get down to Ewood and support them, judging from this things might just be changing for the better.

Poor decision bringing on Goodwillie, maybe drawing or getting beat ,he`s the man to bring on , 1-0 up minutes to go ,if you do bring someone on it has to be a player that can hold up play , a player that can keep the ball ,usually a midfieled ,little bit of inexperience there,but saying that , there was a desire there that has been lacking , give Goodwillie a run out in the cup game at Derby , see what he can do ,the lad deserves a run , he has a good ticker , but he needs games.

Does anyone agree with me that we should bring in a proper defensive coach ?

I thought the team were much better tonight both individually and as a team.

Now the question is do we forfeit another cup game?

The only criticism I could make is that I could see some of the Rovers players tiring and we needed fresh legs, but apart from Goodwillie none where made.

Personally while I would like nothing better than a good run which would get some pride and passion back in the place I'm not so sure I would want to get involved in the play offs this season.

Too many open wounds all round and if we got to the play offs and failed they would be made worse.

IMHO it looks like Shebby is out of it and irrespective of what some people think of the current structure, Shaw, Anew et al; they are football people.

Appleton talks sense, he is being allowed to bring his own staff in, I listened to the assistant manager on Radio Rovers last night on my way to the match, bright, enthusiastic, just what we need.

So lets rebuild, consolidate and have a real go at it next season.

What a total idiot you are, you make Shebby look and sound rational.
Just stand still while I retrieve my hook from your moth will you?
Goodwillie kicking himself? He would miskick and on land on his arse.
Yes I was there, yes it was moderately better, yes it was a dumb substitution, yes we threw two points away by not converting the possession.

You appear to forget there are two teams on a pitch during a game trying to win.

And it was a decent game.

Mind you I do agree if Goodwillie did try to kick himself he would miss.

I get the impression that if Rovers had won 6-0 you would still be ranting and raving against all and sundry on here.

Yet you say you turned up, were you the same at Ewood?

Poor decision bringing on Goodwillie, maybe drawing or getting beat ,he`s the man to bring on , 1-0 up minutes to go ,if you do bring someone on it has to be a player that can hold up play , a player that can keep the ball ,usually a midfieled ,little bit of inexperience there,but saying that , there was a desire there that has been lacking , give Goodwillie a run out in the cup game at Derby , see what he can do ,the lad deserves a run , he has a good ticker , but he needs games.

Does anyone agree with me that we should bring in a proper defensive coach ?
we've got Big Colin and I'm sure he we be more focussed and settled when he has completed his salary increase negotiation and signed the negative year deal

Defensively we were excellent, we looked organised and I couldn't see Brighton getting back into it.

Then up steps the referee. Seems to have bowed to Poyet's complaints in awarding 5 minutes injury time despite no injuries and only 4 subs. I was expecting much better considering the media love that Brighton get. What I saw was appalling from the Brighton players. They truly are Poyet's team.

Anyway, the positives were there for me. The play-offs were always going to be a push after the Berg debacle. I'm willing to back Appleton over the rest of this season and the start of next to see what he can do.
Well said Jacko1.

Much better performance last night.
The players certainly put in lot of effort and were very unlucky not to get the 3 points.

As for Brighton, I thought their tactics were appalling.
Diving & cheating all night - South American style.

Lets hope we have started to turn the corner and Rovers will continue to improve.

The lads who had won the battle for 85 mins must be gutted that a second rate player from Scotland messed up big style. Don't blame the ref the blame lies firmly at the feet of Goodwillie. I have seen him mess up before in games as he has come on as a sub. I remember Odemwinge cutting inside the useless Scott (who again had been brought on as sub) to score their second which confirmed the rot last season.
Unfortunately Appleton does not know who he can trust yet and he will make these mistakes as he gives certain fringe players their chance, forget the play offs this season lets build a team across the remainder of this season and then hopefully enjoy a season like Cardiff are having this year. The BEST is yet to come and I think we must support Appleton to hopefully finish the season strongly and then build on that momentum for next season.

It was a better performance all round last night and it finally looks like Hendrys defensive coaching is starting to sink in a bit.
Looks like this could work if Appleton and his fitness coach, combined with Hendrys experience as a defensive expert might pay off.
They seem to be keen on keeping Hendry for a reason and its showing on the field. Looks like weve turned the corner a bit, just needs some minor tweaking and it could all come together.

To be fair to Goodwillie he's never had a run of games since he arrived 18 months ago. Is he fit ? Is his confidence shattered ? What I'm trying to say is a lot of players might not have shown their full potential, we don't know, until these players get a decent run in the team under a proper manager, playing in their proper positions with proper tactics, which we haven't seen in over two years. No player can show his best, just making the odd appearance from the substitutes bench.
The whole set up has been a shambles, and the players, although they must try to be professional, must be as sick as the supporters have been under the shambolic running of the club that we have witnessed.

Just my opinion.

Well I was absolutely gutted lat night as i'm sure any Rovers fan was. Wasn't a wonderful display of attacking and passing football but what it was, was an assured, combative and TEAM performance from every man. First time IMO in a long time that we played a pressing game. Brighton are a very good side and have a quality manager in Poyet and to say we restricted them to pretty much one shot which was the penalty was outstanding. Appleton is clearly trying to make Blackburn Rovers a team no-one likes playing again, like in the Hughes days, constantly nagging and harrying the opposition until they make a mistake, which summed up the work the boys did last night.

So far I agree with everything Appleton has done so far, from bringing his own staff in (which was sorely needed as we didn't even have a fitness coach at one stage) to his comments on Rovers recruitment policies and I even agree with bring Orr back in from his loan. We are clearly thin on the ground defensively and he may as well assess all of his squad before he makes up his mind on transfers. I even agree with the decision to bring Goodwillie on last night, Brighton were clearly pushing more to get back in the game, so to combat Brighton pushing too far into our half he put Goodwillie on (who will desperate to impress) to run his lungs out and put pressure on the Brighton midfield and back-line. This to me makes total sense.

All in all a much improved performance and positive signs so far that Rovers are finally perhaps moving in the right direction. A few january bargains to freshen up the squad and a few departures and well look a much better proposition.

Up the Blues!

Much better all round performance but still lacking creativity in midfield. Good to see wingers getting down the line but the front two must play together not 20 30 yards apart if we are to be lethal in the box

Last minute unbelievable not evena Sunday morning pub player would make a challenge like that. You can question why the change was necessary but if the whistle had gone 30 seconds beofre it would not have been an issue. Disappointing to seeRovers time wasting and Kean was as much to blame for the referee adding time on by fooling around at goalkicks - hopefully he will learna lesson too

Saturday a chance to build on that performance forget about playoffs just take each game as it comes and see what the table looks like at end of season - that is the only time it matters

I suppose the performance gives us some hope. I shall be at Pride Park on Saturday but not expecting much.

Let's hope all at the club, including us, now understand a play off place is well beyond us. 2 home bankers and we come out of it with 1 point. I don't want to hear any excuses about why really.

Let's build for next season this one is a write-off.

The arrogance of you poor ill informed Boliwood tossers is amazing, first of all you blindly state that only two sides were any good at Ewood this season, yet you remain struggling at the bottom end of the division, you score a goal which Brighton and all other neutrals watching was a questionable penalty at best , clever penus comes on and you slag him to death, the manager takes off a player that was **** poor at best, and where are all the Marquee players on your books...........

The arrogance of you poor ill informed Boliwood tossers is amazing, first of all you blindly state that only two sides were any good at Ewood this season, yet you remain struggling at the bottom end of the division, you score a goal which Brighton and all other neutrals watching was a questionable penalty at best , clever penus comes on and you slag him to death, the manager takes off a player that was **** poor at best, and where are all the Marquee players on your books........... Wigwam bams at best. Remember Venkys own the club and there is nothing any of you can do about it, without more internal damage to your chicken shack empire.

Maybe if goalkeeper Kean didn't waste so much time everytime he wants to take a kick and tries to be clever by letting dead balls run past him there might not have been so much added time and 3 points would have been in the bag. Not much point in having ballboys when he yells at them to leave the ball.

"I disagree with you totally, Goodwillie is not nor ever will be a striker."

32 goals in 74 appearances for Dundee United may suggest otherwise. I would agree that he is probably not a premiership striker but along with a number of others was never given a chance by Kean. The lad has never had a consistent run of games in his rovers career other than a few minutes here and there as a sub or being played out of position by Kean on the right wing. Dundee United supporters were sorry to see him go. At 23 he still has time on his side. It is interesting to see that he is now back in the match squad under Appleton. Goodwillie always struck me as a goal poacher but he is likely to be squad member whilst Rhodes is fit

IMHO it looks like Shebby is out of it and irrespective of what some people think of the current structure, Shaw, Anew et al; they are football people. Appleton talks sense, he is being allowed to bring his own staff in, I listened to the assistant manager on Radio Rovers last night on my way to the match, bright, enthusiastic, just what we need. So lets rebuild, consolidate and have a real go at it next season.
performances were improving when Berg was manager and we lost some close games and unlucky at Huddersfield and Burnley as we conceded last minute goals. It points that matter.

The reason for this is that too often rovers have attempted to defend a 1-0 lead and conceded late on. Granted the same has happened tonight but personally I welcome the positivity of such a move.

I guess other people prefer to take a pessimistic view at any opportunity but not to worry I bet it must be a fulfilling life you live with the glass constantly being half empty!
I don't think we sat back in the last 15 mins at all... We was pushing for another goal and even though there was 5 mins added on (and someone tell me where them 5 mins came from!!), I don't think we would have conceded a goal either. The player was running at a bouncing ball and would have collected it around the edge of the box, with plenty of rovers players in that box. One quick clearance needed and the whistle was being blown! This was sheer idiocy from Goodwillie, I hope Appleton realises this and doesn't give him any more games... Fabio nunes should have been the replacement player, not Goodwillie... But I don't blame Appleton as he is still getting to know the players.

Striker Wes Thomas has told AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe that he wants to leave the south coast club after being dropped from the Cherries squad which made the mammoth journey to Hartlepool yesterday. Having been taken on loan at both Portsmouth and Blackpool by current Rovers boss Michael (The Dark Lord) Appleton, expect to see the former Crawley front man in the blue & white soon at Ewood. Can't personally see that he'll add much to your firepower, but MA likes him, and he may provide a good foil for Jordan Rhodes.

Except Hendry has not been anywhere near the first team ever since Berg arrived, Berg banned Hendry from going anywhere near the first team, you will find him with the reserves he is the reserve manager Gary Bowyer`s assistant now , which is quite incredible as he is apparently still getting his 8,000 pounds a week from Rovers,and his boss Gary is we hear on 1,200 a week.

Other commitments prevented me attending last nights game, general opinion appears to be that Rovers played reasonably well. However, I think the probability that Rovers may not qualify for the play-offs will be weighing heavily on the thoughts of many long suffering loyal fans. Why should we be surprised if it happens? Considering the utter chaos and turmoil at the club some fans might feel we are lucky not to be in the relegation zone - I hope I am not tempting fate by saying that. I for one will be more than happy if we get to the play-offs but, realistically I don’t think it will happen this season. I hope I am wrong.

Michael Appleton should note that the penalty was conceded in the extra time added on by the referee for the time the idiots in the lower tier of the Blackburn End decided that they would keep hold of the ball during the 5 minutes he already announced.

Every day its the same rubbish. "OUT WITH SHAW AGNEW SINGH HENDRY VENKYS COAR" etc.

The page is about the match, not reiterating the same boring drivvle over and over again. The manage at least seems like he has a backbone, he has at least verbalised some very sensible acion points. He doesnt seem to have the same disillusioned stand point HB and SK had. Surely, this is a positive.

Anybody could see that, we should have won a game against one of the best footballing sides in the league and would have notched up a good home win against a team above us, had Goodwillie not made a stupid mistake that is. Had the game ended 30 secs sooner however and Rovers won, i dont think the comments on here would be any different. Because people are so obsessed with writing Venky's out, it's all they care about.

It's frustrating how so many Rovers fans are becoming the caricatures of what people think moaning Rovers fans are. Look at the facts, Venky's aren't going to leave, the new manager on the face of it at least looks better than the other two. Support it or dont, dont just write a list of Names followed by out and then spend the rest of your time thinking about how it was in the good old days.

Can't argue, the problem is that the majority of Rovers fans only have rear view mirrors when watching their team, that's if they bother to turn up at all.

We were a great football team when we won the FA Cup a few times, the last time being 1928 I believe.

But no-one harps back to those good old days.

Like it or not the great days under Jack Walker have gone, they are history and time travel is still impossible as far as I know.

All that matters is the next game.

Appleton talks sense, he is being allowed to bring his own staff in, I listened to the assistant manager on Radio Rovers last night on my way to the match, bright, enthusiastic, just what we need. So lets rebuild, consolidate and have a real go at it next season.[/p][/quote]performances were improving when Berg was manager and we lost some close games and unlucky at Huddersfield and Burnley as we conceded last minute goals. It points that matter.[/p][/quote]Can't argue, the problem is that the majority of Rovers fans only have rear view mirrors when watching their team, that's if they bother to turn up at all. We were a great football team when we won the FA Cup a few times, the last time being 1928 I believe. But no-one harps back to those good old days. Like it or not the great days under Jack Walker have gone, they are history and time travel is still impossible as far as I know. All that matters is the next game. owd nick

It's frustrating how so many Rovers fans are becoming the caricatures of what people think moaning Rovers fans are. Look at the facts, Venky's aren't going to leave, the new manager on the face of it at least looks better than the other two. Support it or dont, dont just write a list of Names followed by out and then spend the rest of your time thinking about how it was in the good old days.
But... the point is that most of the moaners are not Rovers fans at all...just Dingle led stirrers and most of the posts of that ilk have one source.When will posters (genuine ones) realise?? I have been posting for a number of years on here and I know what I am stating is correct. There is no doubt that this "person" wants Rovers to fail and always has. Somone above mentions that the moaner(s) harp on about the good old days, well sorry but even in the good old days he/they moaned about the owners , the manager , the poor gates and poor football..Oh yes, sound familiar?? A blind man could see the pattern.
Any way, the football was much better from the team last night, obviously MA has got to grips from the start. Lot to do yet but a good start. Everyone moaning about Goodwillie should remember all the moans about previous managers putting on a defender to hold the 1-0 lead...MA kept us on the front foot last night so think about that
And btw those mentioning Goodie being a Jock , if he is cr#p he is cr#p, nothing to do with being a Scot.
One of our best players last night was a confident Grant Hanley, where is he from?? And our leading scorer is like me, a Scot in exile. I could go on about Kenny and Souey and Kevin Gallagher too so lets knock the racist anti jock propaganda into the long grass before I take up cattle stealing and barn burning as we used to do in this foreign land...
No, I like living down here so I am staying put before you say it

As for the crowd, I recall being delighted at the 12,000 crowd we drew for the Full Members Cup semi final against Ipswich. Seems to me that on that occasion it was a much bigger 12,000 than we had last night.

I think you have to remember that of all the 90 and sometimes up to 200 comments on these pages, they are not from different posters. Some days they are by repeat posters and some days up to half are from Burnley fans. Given that, the moaners are hardly representative of the whole of Blackburn Rovers fans as the majority do not use this site.

Hey, Bazzer, I remember that semi. It was Hendry's first match for us. He was standing behind the centre forward (I think that was what we called 'em then) waiting for the ball to come down from a long high goal kick As the ball came down, Hendry nipped from behind t' striker, stood in front of him, shoved him backwards with his ars*, chested the ball and then completed a sublime sideways pass out to t' wing! Bloody hell, says I to myself, he'll do for me...and so on to Wembley. Happy days.

Glad to see that two home games producing 1 point is seen as "turning the corner". We seem to have missed the usual bounce of a new manager coming in.
You cannot use the excuse of Apple is getting to know the players for the huge tactical error of putting on Goodwillie. A blind dog would have had a word with someone who knows the players and put on a defender or midfielder for the last minutes, or if you wished to have someone up front to hold the ball, you'ld put on Nunes.
Still, the players put it more effort, perhaps they realise they like we are stuck with Apple and the Venkys for a while.

Eee, I remember that game, too. I was int' Darwen End, just behind the goal with the City fans (nightmare). Franny Lee up against Coddington. Cross comes over, Franny shuffles and Coddington disappears into the long grass. Franny chests down the ball, looks up at the goalie (Blacklaw?), smiles (I kid you not) and gives him the eyes to the left . Goalie dives to the left. Franny rolls the ball into the other corner. 4-1 and goodnight!

Well done Claret for once again proving that the dingle fraternity are not the sharpest tools in the box. Ever heard the phrase "people in glass houses should not throw stones"? Before slating the Rovers attendances of late, try looking at your own team. Not exactly packing your beloved Turd Moor to the rafters are you?!

exactly Navy - they also think Jacks money dried up last week. He's been dead well over a decade and since then we've had higher attendances season in season out. We still averaged 19,000 - 21,000 last time we were playing at this level due to the way the club was run - one big happy family.

untill Venkys appeared - hence the turmoil and lower gates.

Just another Rovers infatuated tobacco chewing banjo player from Bonleh. A thick sh1t riddled in envy and hate... gotta laugh though eh!

A more positive response to a drop of two points than has been the norm. MA has got one defeat, one draw, third time lucky, fifth round here we come.
My optimism knows no bounds. Must be the cold weather freezing my brain but who cares? Let's stay positive and get fully behind Mr Appleton. If it wasn't for the Dingles and a few Rovers fans on this page we would be awash with positivity.

They were stupid but if we are now going to start blaming fans who held onto the ball for losing a lead we are desperate. The team as a whole need to ensure they aren't in those situations at the end of a game when they know pressure will be increased and MA needs to make the right substitutions. I'm like most now where I dont think the play-offs are a realistic outcome this season. I am not doubting we will ever see the premier league again. Once the first bounce back has been missed, its a very difficult task. My wish for this season would be to see some stability in the management approach and for Michael Appleton to prove he was worthy of his appointment. Some are still worrying about where we will finish in relation to Burnley. Really,it makes no difference to us now. We will always be the bigger better club and the reason I know this is because the comments about Rovers news are always numerous whilst Burnley's are often non existent.

32 goals in 74 appearances for Dundee United may suggest otherwise. I would agree that he is probably not a premiership striker but along with a number of others was never given a chance by Kean. The lad has never had a consistent run of games in his rovers career other than a few minutes here and there as a sub or being played out of position by Kean on the right wing. Dundee United supporters were sorry to see him go. At 23 he still has time on his side. It is interesting to see that he is now back in the match squad under Appleton. Goodwillie always struck me as a goal poacher but he is likely to be squad member whilst Rhodes is fit
I agree, players must be given a good run in the team in their natural position before anyone can make judgement. Goodwillie is one who has never had a chance and until he is given that chance we'll never know.
Is it any wonder after what's happened this last two years that young players haven't reached, or come anywhere near their full potential?
I could be wrong but only time will tell if Appleton gives everyone a proper chance.
I also think we should forget promotion for this year, as I can't see Venkys ploughing vast sums of money into players this transfer window.
We should consolidate in this division and give it a good go next year.

IMO

No !!!

I am sick of the apologists for such stupidity as Goodwillie showed and that includes Appleton.

To have lost out on two further points because of such callous behaviour is UNACCEPTABLE never mind apologising on Goodwillies part.

He is either:
1 - Totally thick.
2 - Totally frustrated with the lack of meaningful football in general at the moment
3 - A petulant type of person in general or
4 - Totally uneducated in defensive footballing terms.

We do have an opportunity to claim a playoff place this year and to build momentum but for players on thousands of pounds a week to not realise that acts of such stupidity can have such huge ramifications need to be fined or disciplined.

If we do not go up this season forget about consolidating, building etc for next season as a boat load of clubs will also be doing that (Leeds, Notts Forest, Leicester and if Newcastle QPR or the likes come down don't think that they will not be a force to be reckoned with next season either.

Instead of Appleton apologising for Goodwillie's pathetic action it should have been the complete and total opposite.

All the good work is negated if individual "Self Discipline" lets the team club and fans down.

Others also need to be aware of this for how CKR managed to stay on against Wolves after only 20 30 minutes etc is beyond me.

Calm down......I think It's number 2

Number 4 also played it's part as he's a striker, but that comes down to coaching which has been virtually none existent until now.
Another couple of defeats ant time soon and that's the play offs gone this season......but you can remain optimistic.

It's frustrating how so many Rovers fans are becoming the caricatures of what people think moaning Rovers fans are. Look at the facts, Venky's aren't going to leave, the new manager on the face of it at least looks better than the other two. Support it or dont, dont just write a list of Names followed by out and then spend the rest of your time thinking about how it was in the good old days.
Some people go and pay to watch the rubbish dished up at Ewood some decide to listen to the commentary/read press reports - all are entitled to commenT - but dont forget this, there are as many fans staying 'away' from Ewood as there are 'attending' (av att 10k stay aways appr 10k) and this is because of the way the club is being run by the Board/Owners and as one of the stay aways I will continue to comment about the match from commentary/press reports and will continue to sign off as I always do until these clowns are gone - many of us have made this decision and will stick by it until major changes are made - and not on the cheap!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop making excuses Dangerous. The reason why you don't go it because Rovers are not in the Premier League. If Rovers were playing the like of Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool etc. you'd be there at Ewood faster than soft Mick no matter who owned the club. Stop deluding yourself.

Hey, Bazzer, I remember that semi. It was Hendry's first match for us. He was standing behind the centre forward (I think that was what we called 'em then) waiting for the ball to come down from a long high goal kick As the ball came down, Hendry nipped from behind t' striker, stood in front of him, shoved him backwards with his ars*, chested the ball and then completed a sublime sideways pass out to t' wing! Bloody hell, says I to myself, he'll do for me...and so on to Wembley. Happy days.
I don't remember Hendry's backside but I remember the "crush" in the Blackburn End. And the joy...happy days indeed!
"crush" ? What did you call the man city fa cup game with 40k + in late 60searly70s?
Eee, I remember that game, too. I was int' Darwen End, just behind the goal with the City fans (nightmare). Franny Lee up against Coddington. Cross comes over, Franny shuffles and Coddington disappears into the long grass. Franny chests down the ball, looks up at the goalie (Blacklaw?), smiles (I kid you not) and gives him the eyes to the left . Goalie dives to the left. Franny rolls the ball into the other corner. 4-1 and goodnight!
Certainly a big crowd against City, and we played poorly - after the match had been postponed so many times. I used the term "crush", (Ipswich semi) as I believe we averaged 6 to 8,000 per match around that time.
As for my eyesight failing, well thank God it isn't, and if there was 12,000 odd at Ewood last night, I'll camp out.
I always said Uncle Jack built Ewood too big and the ground would look empty when we began to slide.
The play off semi against Derby was the best "crush" I recall in the Blackburn End.

Had the game ended 30 secs sooner however and Rovers won, i dont think the comments on here would be any different. Because people are so obsessed with writing Venky's out, it's all they care about.

It's frustrating how so many Rovers fans are becoming the caricatures of what people think moaning Rovers fans are. Look at the facts, Venky's aren't going to leave, the new manager on the face of it at least looks better than the other two. Support it or dont, dont just write a list of Names followed by out and then spend the rest of your time thinking about how it was in the good old days.
Some people go and pay to watch the rubbish dished up at Ewood some decide to listen to the commentary/read press reports - all are entitled to commenT - but dont forget this, there are as many fans staying 'away' from Ewood as there are 'attending' (av att 10k stay aways appr 10k) and this is because of the way the club is being run by the Board/Owners and as one of the stay aways I will continue to comment about the match from commentary/press reports and will continue to sign off as I always do until these clowns are gone - many of us have made this decision and will stick by it until major changes are made - and not on the cheap!!!!!!!!!!!!
OUT WITH SHAW AGNEW SINGH VENKYS HENDRY COAR
Stop making excuses Dangerous. The reason why you don't go it because Rovers are not in the Premier League. If Rovers were playing the like of Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool etc. you'd be there at Ewood faster than soft Mick no matter who owned the club. Stop deluding yourself.
Can't argue with the facts.

As I said before, I almost want Venky's to make it just to see these thousands of glory hunters come crawling out of the woodwork like they were always intending to come back.

Support the team, or don't support the team. Everyone has that choice, but coming online on forums and articles and regurgitating the same moaning dummy spits each day and giving the genuine fans supporting the team a bad name is just plain selfish.

Venkys may be voted the worst owners in footballing history, but Rovers fans aren't far behind in that nomination, thanks to the boo-boys and the absent from matches but vocal minority of glory hunters and dummy spitters like Deluded Dave.

What you actually think you're gaining from your repetitve moaning on LT is beyond my comprehension - apart from providing more hilarity and enjoyment to those Dingles that lurk on Rovers articles because their sad empty lives crave the attention missing from their equally sad and empty articles.

Also, ever stop to think what our fellow Rovers, reading your posts think of you?

I am sick of the apologists for such stupidity as Goodwillie showed and that includes Appleton.

To have lost out on two further points because of such callous behaviour is UNACCEPTABLE never mind apologising on Goodwillies part.

He is either:
1 - Totally thick.
2 - Totally frustrated with the lack of meaningful football in general at the moment
3 - A petulant type of person in general or
4 - Totally uneducated in defensive footballing terms.

We do have an opportunity to claim a playoff place this year and to build momentum but for players on thousands of pounds a week to not realise that acts of such stupidity can have such huge ramifications need to be fined or disciplined.

If we do not go up this season forget about consolidating, building etc for next season as a boat load of clubs will also be doing that (Leeds, Notts Forest, Leicester and if Newcastle QPR or the likes come down don't think that they will not be a force to be reckoned with next season either.

Instead of Appleton apologising for Goodwillie's pathetic action it should have been the complete and total opposite.

All the good work is negated if individual "Self Discipline" lets the team club and fans down.

Others also need to be aware of this for how CKR managed to stay on against Wolves after only 20 30 minutes etc is beyond me.
If you were there and saw the look on Goodwillie's face you might think different.

Yes it cost us heavily, but the fact of the matter is we were only winning from a penalty and as good as we played, we failed to score a second to give us the cushion we needed.

The penalty we got was a soft one anyway, many wouldnt have got it and a 1-1 result, whilst deeply disappointing both in the manner it happened and the timing, was a fair result at the end of the day for both teams.

MA is still playing someone else's squad. Plenty of names have been mentioned and we need to move on from this defeat and see who he brings in to change the dynamics of the squad. Murphy with his head in his hands yesterday opitimised everything the players and freezing cold fans were feeling. Goodwillie walking off the field, his dejected face said it all.

Easy to judge the team and be negative, but as many who attended have said on here and around the net, the positives of seeing a team playing its heart out for 98 mins gave much comfort that we don't need a wholesale firesale of the squad. The team were playing for the manager and trying to prove they should be kept and if MA can do that within two games, we can at least take heart that better results from more consistent play will come soon enough.

As I said recently, stop thinking play-offs and start believing in a team that isnt heading further down the table. If promotion isnt within our reach this season, we should be looking for a team that not only challenge for promotion next season, but stay up and win games rather than become the newest premiership 3 point gifting battering rams we became last season.

For all those complaining about the state of the club, if MA gets his transfers this next week, try coming back and getting behind the team and being the 12th man rather sitting behind a keyboard whining like a spoilt brat about whose fault it was we got relegated.

I noticed, the talk of "administration if we dont get promoted" and "asset stripping" are popping up everywhere, now the Trust goons have lost their only voice in Shebby "you know" Singh in the club.

Shame on you. Get behind the team you bunch of day dreaming no-hopers.

They were stupid but if we are now going to start blaming fans who held onto the ball for losing a lead we are desperate. The team as a whole need to ensure they aren't in those situations at the end of a game when they know pressure will be increased and MA needs to make the right substitutions. I'm like most now where I dont think the play-offs are a realistic outcome this season. I am not doubting we will ever see the premier league again. Once the first bounce back has been missed, its a very difficult task. My wish for this season would be to see some stability in the management approach and for Michael Appleton to prove he was worthy of his appointment. Some are still worrying about where we will finish in relation to Burnley. Really,it makes no difference to us now. We will always be the bigger better club and the reason I know this is because the comments about Rovers news are always numerous whilst Burnley's are often non existent. Of those Burnley fans who do post, they post about Blackburn Rovers.

HA HA HA. So you base the size of a club on comments in the local Blackbuurrrn rag!?

Tranmere Rovers get more comments than Man U in the liverpool echo. Does it make them bigger!!!!???

Very true blue -

Venkys have been an absolute car crash in terms of running a football club which has been highlighted ten fold by the fact we were one of, if not the best (relatively speaking) run football clubs in the country. Add that to Jacks staggering investment and Rovers' subsequent success in the 90s and what you end up with is a generation of Rovers fans that have basically been spoiled and can't handle the fact we've been beaten up badly and just want to curl up and die.

I know it's hard to take whats happened and we've all been crippled by the awful decisions that Venkys have made but some of the whingers on here need to realise that the boycotting was supposedly to get Kean out (I was one of em) and he's gone. I am certain Appleton will clear out the dross Kean brought in but needs support. Do these stay away whine bags not realise that whilst the players running out to a half empty stadium with an edgy and poor atmosphere we will NEVER go back up.

Players sense the tension and end up dreading home games.

Part of the reason we went up in our second season under Souness last time we were in this league was because the crowds were 20,000+.The atmosphere in Ewood was always positive and full of spirit which makes the players realise what the club means to the fans.

For the love of god all you whining toys out of the pram 'fans' need to man up and get back to supporting the club through thick and thin.

Don't let the b*stards grind you down.

Venkys know our feelings, especially after 'snowball gate' so lets stick two fingers up at the lot of em and go and support our team to give us some hope of rescuing this horror season.

Your club needs YOU!

Never mind, at least Formica has Done one. Way too lightweight and added nothing in terms of goals and assists, won't be missed.

They were stupid but if we are now going to start blaming fans who held onto the ball for losing a lead we are desperate. The team as a whole need to ensure they aren't in those situations at the end of a game when they know pressure will be increased and MA needs to make the right substitutions. I'm like most now where I dont think the play-offs are a realistic outcome this season. I am not doubting we will ever see the premier league again. Once the first bounce back has been missed, its a very difficult task. My wish for this season would be to see some stability in the management approach and for Michael Appleton to prove he was worthy of his appointment. Some are still worrying about where we will finish in relation to Burnley. Really,it makes no difference to us now. We will always be the bigger better club and the reason I know this is because the comments about Rovers news are always numerous whilst Burnley's are often non existent. Of those Burnley fans who do post, they post about Blackburn Rovers.

HA HA HA. So you base the size of a club on comments in the local Blackbuurrrn rag!?

Tranmere Rovers get more comments than Man U in the liverpool echo. Does it make them bigger!!!!???

Burnley has its own newspaper you clown!

BRKFC - DELUDED SINCE 1995
So are Bonleh a bigger club than Rovers glentoran you gurning bag of envy?
Well, when we've been Champions of England we've achieved it on merit. Not bought it.

We've got further on in the equivalent of the Champions league than your shower could dream of.

When we played you last we were the better side.

We are currently above you in the SAME division.

And next season in the Chumpionship, as you lot loved to call it, despite the cheapest season tickets in the dividion do you reckon your gates will really be bigger than ours!?

Cos that boycott till Kean goes is dragging on a bit.

You can come back now lads, put that old Man U top down for a bit longer.

So my simple answer is this we are bigger and better.

OUT WITH SHAW AGNEW SINGH VENKYS HENDRY COAR
Stop making excuses Dangerous. The reason why you don't go it because Rovers are not in the Premier League. If Rovers were playing the like of Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool etc. you'd be there at Ewood faster than soft Mick no matter who owned the club. Stop deluding yourself.
Can't argue with the facts. As I said before, I almost want Venky's to make it just to see these thousands of glory hunters come crawling out of the woodwork like they were always intending to come back. Support the team, or don't support the team. Everyone has that choice, but coming online on forums and articles and regurgitating the same moaning dummy spits each day and giving the genuine fans supporting the team a bad name is just plain selfish. Venkys may be voted the worst owners in footballing history, but Rovers fans aren't far behind in that nomination, thanks to the boo-boys and the absent from matches but vocal minority of glory hunters and dummy spitters like Deluded Dave. What you actually think you're gaining from your repetitve moaning on LT is beyond my comprehension - apart from providing more hilarity and enjoyment to those Dingles that lurk on Rovers articles because their sad empty lives crave the attention missing from their equally sad and empty articles. Also, ever stop to think what our fellow Rovers, reading your posts think of you?
Very true blue - Venkys have been an absolute car crash in terms of running a football club which has been highlighted ten fold by the fact we were one of, if not the best (relatively speaking) run football clubs in the country. Add that to Jacks staggering investment and Rovers' subsequent success in the 90s and what you end up with is a generation of Rovers fans that have basically been spoiled and can't handle the fact we've been beaten up badly and just want to curl up and die. I know it's hard to take whats happened and we've all been crippled by the awful decisions that Venkys have made but some of the whingers on here need to realise that the boycotting was supposedly to get Kean out (I was one of em) and he's gone. I am certain Appleton will clear out the dross Kean brought in but needs support. Do these stay away whine bags not realise that whilst the players running out to a half empty stadium with an edgy and poor atmosphere we will NEVER go back up. Players sense the tension and end up dreading home games. Part of the reason we went up in our second season under Souness last time we were in this league was because the crowds were 20,000+.The atmosphere in Ewood was always positive and full of spirit which makes the players realise what the club means to the fans. For the love of god all you whining toys out of the pram 'fans' need to man up and get back to supporting the club through thick and thin. Don't let the b*stards grind you down. Venkys know our feelings, especially after 'snowball gate' so lets stick two fingers up at the lot of em and go and support our team to give us some hope of rescuing this horror season. Your club needs YOU! Rant over, cue abuse - RTID
Well said chaps. I am also sick of the bloke who loves to go into the chip shop in Cherry Tree on matchdays and tell everyone why he is not going on Ewood.

How far back in time do we need to travel glentoran? I thought you shiny faced sweating machines didn't like to talk about the past? Seeing as you like time travel, my DeLorean can go back to the early 20th century, did we buy the league back then? Or does that not count?

'When we played you last we were the better side'. Did you actually write that? Did you get more throw ins aswell?

Oh dear glentoran, oh very dear. You are the most warped of the warped gurners aren't you?

No !!!

I am sick of the apologists for such stupidity as Goodwillie showed and that includes Appleton.

To have lost out on two further points because of such callous behaviour is UNACCEPTABLE never mind apologising on Goodwillies part.

He is either:
1 - Totally thick.
2 - Totally frustrated with the lack of meaningful football in general at the moment
3 - A petulant type of person in general or
4 - Totally uneducated in defensive footballing terms.

We do have an opportunity to claim a playoff place this year and to build momentum but for players on thousands of pounds a week to not realise that acts of such stupidity can have such huge ramifications need to be fined or disciplined.

If we do not go up this season forget about consolidating, building etc for next season as a boat load of clubs will also be doing that (Leeds, Notts Forest, Leicester and if Newcastle QPR or the likes come down don't think that they will not be a force to be reckoned with next season either.

Instead of Appleton apologising for Goodwillie's pathetic action it should have been the complete and total opposite.

All the good work is negated if individual "Self Discipline" lets the team club and fans down.

Others also need to be aware of this for how CKR managed to stay on against Wolves after only 20 30 minutes etc is beyond me.
If you were there and saw the look on Goodwillie's face you might think different.

Yes it cost us heavily, but the fact of the matter is we were only winning from a penalty and as good as we played, we failed to score a second to give us the cushion we needed.

The penalty we got was a soft one anyway, many wouldnt have got it and a 1-1 result, whilst deeply disappointing both in the manner it happened and the timing, was a fair result at the end of the day for both teams.

MA is still playing someone else's squad. Plenty of names have been mentioned and we need to move on from this defeat and see who he brings in to change the dynamics of the squad. Murphy with his head in his hands yesterday opitimised everything the players and freezing cold fans were feeling. Goodwillie walking off the field, his dejected face said it all.

Easy to judge the team and be negative, but as many who attended have said on here and around the net, the positives of seeing a team playing its heart out for 98 mins gave much comfort that we don't need a wholesale firesale of the squad. The team were playing for the manager and trying to prove they should be kept and if MA can do that within two games, we can at least take heart that better results from more consistent play will come soon enough.

As I said recently, stop thinking play-offs and start believing in a team that isnt heading further down the table. If promotion isnt within our reach this season, we should be looking for a team that not only challenge for promotion next season, but stay up and win games rather than become the newest premiership 3 point gifting battering rams we became last season.

For all those complaining about the state of the club, if MA gets his transfers this next week, try coming back and getting behind the team and being the 12th man rather sitting behind a keyboard whining like a spoilt brat about whose fault it was we got relegated.

I noticed, the talk of "administration if we dont get promoted" and "asset stripping" are popping up everywhere, now the Trust goons have lost their only voice in Shebby "you know" Singh in the club.

Shame on you. Get behind the team you bunch of day dreaming no-hopers.

RTID.
Hi Blueblooded

I was / have never been away.

I don't hide behind a keyboard either.

You have answered my point by sympathising with Goodwillie.

I don't care what his body language is after the deed is done we would be in a healthier state with a further two points.

I am looking positively by stating that I believe we can get into the playoffs and move forward even promoted through the playoffs if we can build a head of steam with a few key signings.

I would also take promotion with a weakish squad for their are always 6 or 7 poor teams in the premiership at any given season - look at this years sides.

Anyway good to talk footballing matters.

And even if I was as ugly Appleton I wouldn't fancy facial reconstruction, so I can see why he made that sub.

Yes, we're disappointed too! But lets face it, we've been here for a long while now and it shows no sign of changing.

Realisitically its going no-where is it? Same owners, same clueless management, same type of second rate manager, same set of pay-day players.

Forget the play-offs - we'll be lucky to avoid the drop at this rate. Can't believe how so much damage has been done in two years.

Still nice to see Venky's gauging the mood so well by arriving in their Rollers and leaving after 65mins. Great PR and they must be congratualting themselves on another fantastic appointment with their PR firm. NOT! Nothing like endearing yourselves to your paying customers.
