Blackburn Rovers Blog: There are good signs coming out of Ewood

CONSECUTIVE wins, consecutive clean sheets, a no-nonsense approach and clearing out the dead wood.

I know it is early days and we shouldn’t get carried away, but I am warming to the new gaffer.

Questions were raised when Ruben Rochina – over-rated by many Rovers fans in my opinion – left the club on deadline day.

He had a lot of nice tricks and a decent finish at times, but his lack of a brain, at least a football brain, made him a liability at times.

So often you would see him take on two midfielders, get through, have a run towards goal and then, instead of passing, attempt about 19 step-overs and lose possession.

But players like him do ignite a sense of excitement among supporters, so it was unsurprising many were disappointed at his departure.

The explanation soon followed – quite pleasing in itself that behind-closed-doors decisions were explained to the paying fans – that Rochina had asked to leave and Appleton had allowed him to.

What is the point of having players at the club who don’t want to be there, especially when they probably get paid a fortune?

He also isn’t the type of player that is likely to prosper in the Appleton regime – as weren’t Rosado, Vukcevic or Linganzi – as he appears to favour the ‘Big Sam’ approach.

In my view, things are looking up. He is trying to tighten us up, play more solidly.

And, as the man said himself after the win over Bristol, if you can stay solid and keep a clean sheet, with a man like Jordan Rhodes in your side, the chances are you will score and win.

The big disappointment on deadline day was our failure to sign Jerome Thomas and DJ Campbell.

But, despite earlier confidence, they were unable to complete those two deals as they fell through at the last minute.

But at least it appears likely they will be brought in on loan on Friday so we may not have missed out entirely.

The news Leon Best is back in training is also a huge boost. Having him back will be like having a new signing as it is.

We are just seven points from the play-offs and, to stand any chance of promotion, our run has to come now.

Our heads are up, Rhodes is banging them in for fun, and we aren’t conceding.

If we can keep that up we should certainly be able to beat Ipswich on Saturday.

There are some tough games coming up, including both Brighton and Leicester City away, but you have to go up against the best and succeed if you are to get anywhere in football.

February will be a huge test for Rovers and Michael Appleton.

By the end of the month, we may well have a better idea of where we could be next season.

Completely agree with the comments made and it's great to finally see positive news coming out of Ewood Park.

I can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. Mark Appleton is certainly impressing thus far - long may it continue! There Certainly is an element of Big Sam in the performances. We look better at the back, more organised in Midfield and we are getting the ball up to the front man. It's much better on the eye!

I really hope that fans start coming back to watch the games and support the team as we make a push for 6th spot. It was a real team performance at the weekend. If we can get 16,000 plus fans back in the stadium, it may just make the difference between 6th and 7th.

A bit too soon I think to make a judgement. Let's see where we are after Hull, Leicester and Brighton away. The next few weeks are likely to make or break the season.

Totally agree - early days and not such a good match last Saturday even though 3 points gained - according to reports midfield still very much lacking and yet another sloppy performance from Murphy - loan window coming up soon so we will see who comes in and who goes out and if promises of new faces actually happen - get Singh and Hendry off the wage bill then perhaps we can afford a couple of players!!

Ruben Rochina In!

Was never given a proper run in the team, despite that still our second top scorer this season, and third top scorer last season.

He gets picked on a lot. Other players give the ball away all the time, but we dont seem to pick on them or comment too much.

If other Rovers fans keep moaning about him, if I was him, I would leave too, he is too good for the club.

To be perfectly honest who, apart from you actually cares about Hendry or Singh?

The main thing is the positive vibes coming out of Ewood now, that's what we need to focus on now, not the past or personal hatred.

This club needs to move onwards and upwards, note get dragged back down in the mire.

Wrong in my opinion. One of the reasons we are where we are is down to the signings of the likes of Rochina, Formica, Vuckevic and the list goes on....and on....
We now have a manager who has taken action quickly to get rid of the deadwood.
Yes Rochina was pleasant on the eye now and again.....but how many times did he lose the ball or keep it too long.....sometimes putting us under pressure. He has been given time to develop and he has not learnt so ship him out is the right answer. He was given a proper run in the team he just never delivered and never will.

Barcelona are decent judges of a player and would not have sold him if they thought he could make it at the higest level.

Appleton like Berg will be judges after about 10 games. Many rovers players like Murphy and others have now just about come to grips with Championship. There is nothing anyone can do about Shebby, Hendry, chuckle brothers or anyone else. Only Madame Desai can decide.

Sorry Nic got disagree getting rid of Hendry is a must, why because he WAS a local hero, until you get rid of the the likes of Singh and Hendry BRFC will always be a laughing stock, on Hendry in particular, have you got any Grandparents who have been robbed? No I bet not, has your mother ever been beaten up by an old boyfriend, no I bet not again, don't see these people through rose tinted glasses they are what they are!

Its pure fantasy to suggest weve turned a corner. We've played 3 very easy games so far and not really dominated any of them. We were playing like this at the start of the season under SK but everyone admitted that we wern't convincing. People are so depressed now that thier convincing themselves that we are convincing!

At the end of the day it was always a known fact that the November-December run-in was where we would test our team in this division. We are now back on an easy run of fixtures and i'd expect us to slowly slip away as the fixtures become more difficult again.

interesting that we want a winger on loan from WBA.

WBA (according to 'onest as the day's long 'arry) were not prepared to let Peter Alwayswhinging go to QPR cos one person, Junior Hoilett, was not prepared to go to WBA on loan as part of the deal.

if Hoilett had not lifted his skirt at any punters who fancied doing some business - maybe we would a bit further up this league.

IFS, BUTZ and MAYBEE - that's a good midfield three

No, my grandparents, parents and most of my family are dead.

Singh is gone, he just doesn't know it yet,and as for Hendry? Well I don't know all that much about his personal life, apart from the fact he lost his wife in tragic circumstances.

People make mistakes in life, obviously you have been affected by something he may have done and if that's the case, well, we have laws in this country.

No rose tinted glasses, sorry, I am a tad too long in the tooth for that.

Disagree, we have turned a corner as you put it simply because we appear to have football people back in control of the day to day running of the club, which is what we desperately needed.

Yes there are sterner tests ahead in the coming weeks and you can only try to beat the team that is facing you on the day.

I for one don't expect we will win every game, but I do think we will get back to basics over the rest of this season, a bit like we did when Hughes took control.

To be perfectly honest who, apart from you actually cares about Hendry or Singh?

The main thing is the positive vibes coming out of Ewood now, that's what we need to focus on now, not the past or personal hatred.

This club needs to move onwards and upwards, note get dragged back down in the mire.
Sorry Nic got disagree getting rid of Hendry is a must, why because he WAS a local hero, until you get rid of the the likes of Singh and Hendry BRFC will always be a laughing stock, on Hendry in particular, have you got any Grandparents who have been robbed? No I bet not, has your mother ever been beaten up by an old boyfriend, no I bet not again, don't see these people through rose tinted glasses they are what they are!
No, my grandparents, parents and most of my family are dead.

Singh is gone, he just doesn't know it yet,and as for Hendry? Well I don't know all that much about his personal life, apart from the fact he lost his wife in tragic circumstances.

No there`s mistakes and then there`s
immoral indecent behaviour ,if you think gambling all your money away and then telling a whole lot of lies to borrow the hard earned life savings from pensioner neighbours then gambling all their money away as well ,then getting locked up for beating your girlfriend senseless is (a mistake in life ) I`ll bet you think prisoners should have their own mobile phones / internet/ **** channels/and they should be allowed take aways from the local chinky ! if they don`t fancy whats on the menu when they are in the cllink.
Ouch.

And that's my fault?

Ruben Rochina In!

Was never given a proper run in the team, despite that still our second top scorer this season, and third top scorer last season.

He gets picked on a lot. Other players give the ball away all the time, but we dont seem to pick on them or comment too much.

If other Rovers fans keep moaning about him, if I was him, I would leave too, he is too good for the club.
Face it fella, e was mainly crap !!

Totally agree - early days and not such a good match last Saturday even though 3 points gained - according to reports midfield still very much lacking and yet another sloppy performance from Murphy - loan window coming up soon so we will see who comes in and who goes out and if promises of new faces actually happen - get Singh and Hendry off the wage bill then perhaps we can afford a couple of players!!

He wasn't locked up for beating his girlfriend, he wasn't even charged. You need to stop believing everything you read in the Scottish Sun (oxymoron?). If you and BRFC75 feel so aggrieved by Hendry's presence at the club then perhaps you should take a tandem ride down to Brockhall and confront him yourselves. After all, I doubt very much that he's concerned himself with reading your inane, repetetive comments about him - even when the article has absolutely nothing to do with him. The guy went through a traumatic time and made some terrible, terrible decisions, that doesn't mean he's not entitled to earn a living. Anybody who thinks Hendry is dragging the name of Blackburn Rovers through the mud need to realise that apart from few people on here, nobody else cares and hardly anybody else knows about what he did. Seriously, change the record, you're boring the rest of us.

Wrong in my opinion. One of the reasons we are where we are is down to the signings of the likes of Rochina, Formica, Vuckevic and the list goes on....and on....
We now have a manager who has taken action quickly to get rid of the deadwood.
Yes Rochina was pleasant on the eye now and again.....but how many times did he lose the ball or keep it too long.....sometimes putting us under pressure. He has been given time to develop and he has not learnt so ship him out is the right answer. He was given a proper run in the team he just never delivered and never will.

Barcelona are decent judges of a player and would not have sold him if they thought he could make it at the higest level.
Like the same way they let Fabregras go?
Tremendous retort PR! Barcelona weren't stupid , they've got first refusal on him and I believe a capped price. Learnt from fabregas deal I'd say

If Appy is happy with Hendry then that is fine with me and I guess will be ok with most Rovers fans. If he is contributing to the improvement then I believe he should stay but it is the managers call.

Ruben Rochina In!

Was never given a proper run in the team, despite that still our second top scorer this season, and third top scorer last season.

He gets picked on a lot. Other players give the ball away all the time, but we dont seem to pick on them or comment too much.

If other Rovers fans keep moaning about him, if I was him, I would leave too, he is too good for the club.
well why don't you do one then.

Rochina like Formica was too light weight and could not acclimatise to the Briish game.We actually need diect players who do the simple things like Rhodes does he knocks the ball into the net doesnt try to overhead kick or back heel it he just thumps it in.We need big lads in defence and powerful strong midfielders, speed on the wings and two strikers who work well together-its simple.

interesting that we want a winger on loan from WBA. WBA (according to 'onest as the day's long 'arry) were not prepared to let Peter Alwayswhinging go to QPR cos one person, Junior Hoilett, was not prepared to go to WBA on loan as part of the deal. if Hoilett had not lifted his skirt at any punters who fancied doing some business - maybe we would a bit further up this league. IFS, BUTZ and MAYBEE - that's a good midfield three
I prefer Kudov, Shudov and Wudov, the great Bulgarian trio.

The main thing is the positive vibes coming out of Ewood now, that's what we need to focus on now, not the past or personal hatred.

This club needs to move onwards and upwards, note get dragged back down in the mire.

February will be a huge test for Appleton.
i dont expect us to be in the playoffs by the end of this month. We have Ipswich, Brighton, Arsenal, Hull, Leeds and Leicester.
its a very, very tough month with only 2 home fixtures involved.
after that it gets condiserably easier on paper. a big february though and i fancy us to land a playoff spot!!

No, my grandparents, parents and most of my family are dead. Singh is gone, he just doesn't know it yet,and as for Hendry? Well I don't know all that much about his personal life, apart from the fact he lost his wife in tragic circumstances. People make mistakes in life, obviously you have been affected by something he may have done and if that's the case, well, we have laws in this country. No rose tinted glasses, sorry, I am a tad too long in the tooth for that.
No there`s mistakes and then there`s immoral indecent behaviour ,if you think gambling all your money away and then telling a whole lot of lies to borrow the hard earned life savings from pensioner neighbours then gambling all their money away as well ,then getting locked up for beating your girlfriend senseless is (a mistake in life ) I`ll bet you think prisoners should have their own mobile phones / internet/ **** channels/and they should be allowed take aways from the local chinky ! if they don`t fancy whats on the menu when they are in the cllink.
He wasn't locked up for beating his girlfriend, he wasn't even charged. You need to stop believing everything you read in the Scottish Sun (oxymoron?). If you and BRFC75 feel so aggrieved by Hendry's presence at the club then perhaps you should take a tandem ride down to Brockhall and confront him yourselves. After all, I doubt very much that he's concerned himself with reading your inane, repetetive comments about him - even when the article has absolutely nothing to do with him. The guy went through a traumatic time and made some terrible, terrible decisions, that doesn't mean he's not entitled to earn a living. Anybody who thinks Hendry is dragging the name of Blackburn Rovers through the mud need to realise that apart from few people on here, nobody else cares and hardly anybody else knows about what he did. Seriously, change the record, you're boring the rest of us.
Sorry SRVP28 I again disagree, I like the way you use invisible other posters on here when you personally quote,

No body else cares - how do you know

Your boring the rest of us - how do you know, who are the rest of us?

I have seen loads of posts on here regarding Hendrys disgraceful behaviour, that's fact!

I know lots of pensioners who are disgusted with him, fact.

Your comment on taking a Tandam down and confronting Mr Hendry is pathetic, you advacate violence as a solution to an argument do you, then you no better than Hendry!

No your entitled to YOUR opinion but don't speak in behalf of people who don't exist.

its Venkys club.

Who they employ and how much they get paid is their business.

The only thing supporters should be worrying about is how the team is improving, what is being done and who is coming or going from the team to get us playing the kind of football and results we would like to see.

All this "Out" nonsense from those who aren't even going to the games is farcical nonsense from dummy spitters who make attending fans the target of ridicule from other fans and media.

Great to see some positive talk about Rovers at last.

I was glad to see Rochina, Simon, Linganzi go etc. If they don't want to be here anyway, get rid. I like seeing that visible changes are being attempted to the team. I don't even mind going back to the 'Big Sam' style of play if it gets us out of this league... it worked for West Ham!

Appleton seems genuine so far, and deserves support. Yes, it is early days and we'll only know at the end of the feb/mar fixtures if it is justified. But I'm the happiest I've been at Ewood in 2 years.

The play-offs may be a long shot, but it is right for MA to be talking about getting into them. We all hope we can.

Like many I'd love a change of ownership, but realistically Venkys aren't going to go anytime soon, and if they did just walk out, I'd fear a drop down the leagues would follow.

As for Hendry, I loved him as a footballer, and he's been brought in to do a job as an ex-footballer. He has a questionable past away from the game and I'd be lying if I said I was happy about that. But redemption has to start somewhere. We've all done stuff we aren't proud of. Give him a chance to prove himself.

Time for us ALL to get behind the team! Come on you blues.

I use invisible other posters on here when I quote? Erm... no I don't. Scroll through the past few months articles and you'll see numerous other posters telling 'BRFC75' and 'dangerous dave' to change the record. The reason why? Because they continue to turn every single story into an anti-Hendry protest.

We've ALL seen lots of posts on here regarding Hendry's behaviour, largely due to 'BRFC75' posting his anti-Hendry propaganda on here about twenty times a day. I find it odd that you (incorrectly) accused me of using invisible posters to make a point, only to announce that you 'know lots of pensioners who are disgusted with him, fact'. Where are these 'invisible pensioners' then?

As for advocating violence, I've done nothing of the sort. I merely stated that 'BRFC75' and 'dangerous dave' should take a tandem down to Brockhall to air their grievances with Hendry himself, it's not as if bombarding these pages with their repetitive gripes is getting them anywhere.

You're obviously feel the same way as they do, perhaps they should trade in that tandem for a motorbike and sidecar.

Singh is gone, he just doesn't know it yet,and as for Hendry? Well I don't know all that much about his personal life, apart from the fact he lost his wife in tragic circumstances. People make mistakes in life, obviously you have been affected by something he may have done and if that's the case, well, we have laws in this country. No rose tinted glasses, sorry, I am a tad too long in the tooth for that.[/p][/quote]No there`s mistakes and then there`s immoral indecent behaviour ,if you think gambling all your money away and then telling a whole lot of lies to borrow the hard earned life savings from pensioner neighbours then gambling all their money away as well ,then getting locked up for beating your girlfriend senseless is (a mistake in life ) I`ll bet you think prisoners should have their own mobile phones / internet/ **** channels/and they should be allowed take aways from the local chinky ! if they don`t fancy whats on the menu when they are in the cllink.[/p][/quote]He wasn't locked up for beating his girlfriend, he wasn't even charged. You need to stop believing everything you read in the Scottish Sun (oxymoron?). If you and BRFC75 feel so aggrieved by Hendry's presence at the club then perhaps you should take a tandem ride down to Brockhall and confront him yourselves. After all, I doubt very much that he's concerned himself with reading your inane, repetetive comments about him - even when the article has absolutely nothing to do with him. The guy went through a traumatic time and made some terrible, terrible decisions, that doesn't mean he's not entitled to earn a living. Anybody who thinks Hendry is dragging the name of Blackburn Rovers through the mud need to realise that apart from few people on here, nobody else cares and hardly anybody else knows about what he did. Seriously, change the record, you're boring the rest of us.[/p][/quote]Sorry SRVP28 I again disagree, I like the way you use invisible other posters on here when you personally quote, No body else cares - how do you know Your boring the rest of us - how do you know, who are the rest of us? I have seen loads of posts on here regarding Hendrys disgraceful behaviour, that's fact! I know lots of pensioners who are disgusted with him, fact. Your comment on taking a Tandam down and confronting Mr Hendry is pathetic, you advacate violence as a solution to an argument do you, then you no better than Hendry! No your entitled to YOUR opinion but don't speak in behalf of people who don't exist.[/p][/quote]I use invisible other posters on here when I quote? Erm... no I don't. Scroll through the past few months articles and you'll see numerous other posters telling 'BRFC75' and 'dangerous dave' to change the record. The reason why? Because they continue to turn every single story into an anti-Hendry protest. We've ALL seen lots of posts on here regarding Hendry's behaviour, largely due to 'BRFC75' posting his anti-Hendry propaganda on here about twenty times a day. I find it odd that you (incorrectly) accused me of using invisible posters to make a point, only to announce that you 'know lots of pensioners who are disgusted with him, fact'. Where are these 'invisible pensioners' then? As for advocating violence, I've done nothing of the sort. I merely stated that 'BRFC75' and 'dangerous dave' should take a tandem down to Brockhall to air their grievances with Hendry himself, it's not as if bombarding these pages with their repetitive gripes is getting them anywhere. You're obviously feel the same way as they do, perhaps they should trade in that tandem for a motorbike and sidecar. srvp28
