Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn Rovers Blog: Point at Blackpool not too bad a performance Blackburn Rovers Blog: Point at Blackpool not too bad a performance

FOOTBALL fans tend to live in the past. We all get misty-eyed for classic matches, former players and past successes.

Rovers fans can certainly be forgiven for this trait, as the future right now does not seem anywhere near as bright as our relatively recent past.

The 1990s brought Premier League success and a new owner, Rovers fan Jack Walker, who ploughed millions into the club to turn its fortunes around.

Even after his death we were able to enjoy relative success in the 2000s, winning the League Cup and punching above our weight in the top flight for a decade.

However, supporters from other clubs will always try to put down your side’s past, and in our case we are so often accused of buying success.

One national newspaper carried a heartening piece last week explaining to the masses how Rovers did not ‘buy’ the title in 1995.

It made for pleasing reading that someone had a long enough memory for them to be able to see sense.

It is true that without the millions pumped in by Uncle Jack, we would probably not have achieved promotion, let alone win the league.

But to claim we bought the title at a time when other clubs were spending millions, often more than us, seems unfair.

Especially when you look at those who really have bought success – Chelsea and Manchester City.

The spending of Jack Walker pales in comparison to those at Stamford Bridge and The Etihad.

The lynchpins of our title success were people like Colin Hendry, Tim Sherwood, Stuart Ripley, Henning Berg, Tony Gale and Mark Atkins.

The transfer fees (if any) paid for each of those was nominal.

Fair enough, we brought in Chris Sutton for £5million, but in the same season Sir Alex Ferguson paid £7million for Andy Cole.

The reason Rovers won the league was that we built an excellent squad with one of the best managers there has ever been.

Meanwhile, I guess I can’t completely ignore the fact we had a game on Saturday.

The draw at Blackpool was a good result in what sounded like a pulsating game.

Unfortunately I couldn’t see the action as I took the better half to London for a birthday treat.

However, having only taken a point, we are now seven points behind the play-offs and in desperate need of putting a run of wins together if we are to stand any chance of breaking into the top six.

Having seen Blackpool wipe the floor with Wigan the previous week and looking at their home record I would have been happy with a point on Saturday, but I have to admit It was something of a relief when the equaliser went in.

Not too bothered about the so called gap at present, if its still the same after another 12 games or so then there might be an issue and this division will go down to the wire, as it did last season.

For instance Palace were dead and buried before they went on a late run and won promotion last year.

I just look forward to the next game, then the one after that, we will have a better idea as to our prospects with around 10 games to go.

Ahhhhhhh! the good old days Dan....what i'd give to have those days back at Ewood.

unlike owd nick i'm not so optimistic and we've only ourselves to blame, i said at the start of the season that to stand any chance of promotion either via the play-offs or straight promotion we would have to have at least 20 points out of our first 10 games and push on from there...not a lot to ask but we only managed 16...not good enough, 30 points were up for grabs and we too just over half available.

the only way forward is to try and keep the squad together (a big ask) and build a competitive squad from what we have.
i do think JR will be leaving the club either in January or in the summer along with one or two more perhaps and my concern is with the sanctions that will be forced upon us by the moronic FA we will be unable to replace them.

i just wish the future was brighter but unfortunately it's not and we have our wise and wonderful chicken farmers to thank for this....and for what they've done to our club.

we can only hope that GB is a far better manager than any of us could have imagined and that the lads are on the verge of becoming quality players.

just for the record....i think our relative dominance in east lancs is over and Burnleys time is nigh....and they deserve it....they are where they are with a relatively small squad and budget but they have a good manager and players who want to play for him and the fans....like it or not that's the way it is.

The most realistic Blackburn post I've read in a long time.

That basically sums it up, FFP will level the playing field. Your manager will need to have the drive and motivation to make what's left of your team after January run through brick walls, however I don't believe Bowyer is the right man for the job.

I must say that I was most surprised that so many on here expected Rovers to win at Blackpool as it was never on. Realistically a draw was always the most we could get and personally consider it a point well won.
The real test will come over the next six games starting with Boro on saturday
a game we must win and should by at least two goals. After that it will be a
lot tougher and we will know where we are going. I am happy where we are
now as we are just not good enough to dream of promotion without two or
three new better players and that is not going to happen. So let us all settle for mid table which after last season is pretty good.

Still think we have the squad to do better than what we are doing at the moment. If you look at the other Championship clubs we are as good as anybody including Burnley with the only exception being QPR who have a lot of high profile players still on their books. GB has brought together a good squad of players who should be challenging for promotion and for whatever reason we are not. I just feel that when GB opts for just Rhodes as the lone striker with Josh King as the main threat on the wing we look very predictable and teams find it reatively easy to deal with and contain us when we play this way and unfortunately we do this a lot. Can't help feeling we have got be more adventurous both home and away more often. We were very lucky to get a point on Saturday otherwise it would have been 3 defeats on the trot.

RPC....you make a good point but why should we be happy with a draw?.

Blackpool are a relatively small club with a small budget and we should be going in to game like that expecting to win....i mean what have Blackpool got that we haven't? (besides more points)....i mean they even have our ex manager (one of them).

don't get me wrong but i'm glad we got something out of the game but come on we should be setting out and be capable of winning games like these instead of being happy that we got one point out of three available.

Oh dear.

You are not as good as Burnley. We have twice the number of points you have in the same number of games, hence you are half as good as us. We are 16 (SIXTEEN) points ahead of you.

And in case you missed it, Burnley have just beaten QPR 2-0, and played them off the park.

Never thought I'd say this but I'm grateful to Burnley supporters on here. They drive home my point, and a number of other Rovers fans, (probably 10000 or so,) how far Rovers have declined. And the dilution , I'm afraid, has some way to go with the set-up still in place. When will the optimists finally see the light and turn against the regime?

we.love.you.venkys - if you are going to waste your time commenting on others pages then I think we need to be balanced and some of the comments from Rovers fans above are. Blackburn's squad is clearly stronger than our own and all credit to the ginger one he's managed to work up a miracle though we know it certainly won't last. My view is that we won't go up and the better we do early on then somehow we're more likely to get beaten by them in March so when all said and done we'll be in the dumps again. Just food for thought. As they say, the higher a monkey climbs the more it shows it's arse, so maybe we should stick to our own page?

"If you look at the other Championship clubs we are as good as anybody including Burnley with the only exception being QPR who have a lot of high profile players still on their books."

Oh dear.

You are not as good as Burnley. We have twice the number of points you have in the same number of games, hence you are half as good as us. We are 16 (SIXTEEN) points ahead of you.

And in case you missed it, Burnley have just beaten QPR 2-0, and played them off the park.

Stop kidding yourself.
Never thought I'd say this but I'm grateful to Burnley supporters on here. They drive home my point, and a number of other Rovers fans, (probably 10000 or so,) how far Rovers have declined. And the dilution , I'm afraid, has some way to go with the set-up still in place. When will the optimists finally see the light and turn against the regime?
You're a complete and utter tosspot though are you not.? Why don't you and the dingles go and post on stories concerning their(your?) club? We don't want you.

When We.love.u.venkys and his inbred six fingered cousins continually post on Rovers stories it merely serves to confirm something we all know deep down, Burnley just aren’t as big as Blackburn Rovers.

Burnley are running away with the league, enjoying their best start to a season in their history and yet they still prefer to interact with us Rovers fans. I actually feel sorry for them.

It must have been a painful few decades of domination by the mighty Rovers that has led to the vitriol now spilling from their toothless mouths.

We enjoyed the ride Dingles. You'll never better what we've achieved.

Oh dear, someone is having a bad day aren't they? Have you been looking at the League table again? Is that why you're so snappy today?

When jinkyjase (great name by the way) continually resorts to personal insults and incest accusations he only serves to show himself up as the bitter b45tard that he so clearly is. Just another sorry no-dad who enjoyed giving it out to the Burnley fans while his club were a premier league side but can't take it when the tables are turned. Another 95'er who knows nothing about real football.

This season and next will see Blackburn Rovers brought to its knee's, a few of the more realistic supporters have recognised this and have decided quite sensibly to wind their necks in. Those others who continue to delude themselves that it will all work out are in for a shock.

Blackburn Rovers will start the 2015 season in League One. Fact.

I don't think he can. How many times have we seen a team make a flying start, and that is what it is, only to fall by the wayside later in the season. They have a wafer thin squad and have been lucky, so far as injuries are concerned, unlike us. Things tend to balance themselves out over a full season so I think their celebrations are ridiculous and premature after only 13 games. Who can blame them though after being starved of success for so long. I predict that they might make the playoffs though.

Your right about the injuries that is going to be key.They have been fortunate not to have had major injuies so far and on the other hand we have had a bag full all concerning major players for us. Even Rhodes is playing with a plaster cast.

Keep consoling yourself with the idea that the Clarets "might make the play-off's though". As opposed to running away with the league, which is looking more and more likely with each win. It's coming to something when that's the best a Blackburn fan can hope for.

Who can blame them though after being starved of success for so long. I predict that they might make the playoffs though.
Keep consoling yourself with the idea that the Clarets "might make the play-off's though". As opposed to running away with the league, which is looking more and more likely with each win. It's coming to something when that's the best a Blackburn fan can hope for.

Burnley's "wafer thin squad" = WWWWWWWW.
Up the hammers, a proper claret and blue team!!!!

Blackburn's squad is clearly stronger than our own and all credit to the ginger one he's managed to work up a miracle though we know it certainly won't last. My view is that we won't go up and the better we do early on then somehow we're more likely to get beaten by them in March so when all said and done we'll be in the dumps again. Just food for thought. As they say, the higher a monkey climbs the more it shows it's arse, so maybe we should stick to our own page?[/p][/quote]Good to hear from a level headed Burnley poster for once who makes a lot of valid comments. The ginger one has been brilliant so far with the way he sets his team up and carries out his game plan with limited resources and deserves to be where he is at moment, any genuine sports person will be happy to acknowledge that no matter who you support.. Whether he can keep it up only time will tell.[/p][/quote]I don't think he can. How many times have we seen a team make a flying start, and that is what it is, only to fall by the wayside later in the season.
