  • "It should be quite Clear to every BRFC fan that we have a problem with our non existent midfield.
    We have tried all season to play with players who are not up to the job.
    Our problem is central midfield.
    We need strong youngish determined midfield marvels...!!
    Unfortunately these particular type of player are harder to find and lure to BRFC. People have more chances of finding gold on the streets of Blackburn.....!!!!
    All season, we have had to make do with players who are simply not up to it..!

    Murphy is past it and too old.
    Lowe is simply not good enough but tries hard and for me is only a squad member. To be fair to the lad he has fitted into the team and doing a job.
    Pederson is too old and past it.
    Dunn is unlikely to play again and if were lucky we may get 5 mins.
    Not sure if the others cando a job as yet unproven...!!
    Williamson, out for 6 weeks thats his season over..!!
    Etuhu, finsihed for season..!
    so many more players out and injuries likely to mount as its a tough league the championship...!
    We need to attract more players on short term loans and BRFC must pay high wages to get the ones we really need.

    Thank God, we have currently have Venkys who will hopefully pay the wages required..!
    I doubt if any other owner would have continued investing and paying like Venkys are doing.

    Hopefully, MA sees this and finds the players we need.....!!! too take us up.

    finally.......
    Hopefully we can go up...!!!
    but that will mean BRFC will have to spend 50 million at least just to have a chance of staying up

    Arte et labore."

Olsson facing month on the sidelines

First published in Sport Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by , Blackburn Rovers reporter

MARTIN Olsson looks set to be out of action for at least a month after suffering a freak training ground injury on Friday.

Rovers' Swedish international missed this afternoon's draw at home to Leeds after taking a ball to the eye yesterday, with Appleton revealing he could be facing a month on the sidelines.

Colin Kazim-Richards will have a scan on Monday after limping out of this afternoon's clash with an ankle injury, with Dickson Etuhu and Lee Williamson already ruled out for the next month at least.

Rovers struggled to create too much this afternoon as they remain seven points adrift of the Championship top six.

Manager Michael Appleton, said: "I thought it was a good game to watch and a good game to be involved in, even though the scoreline didn't suggest that.

"It was two teams going toe to toe and hammer and tongs against each other and there were chances for both sides.

"It was a game both teams wanted to win but ultimately both had to settle for a draw.

"I thought we were good in possession at times and looked a threat. I thought we looked much sharper than we did in midweek."
