ha ha...ironically, if last nights murder of West Ham was a close game, it would have been a lot easier to sell these :)

I hope GB did not take the team to watch City's annihilation of WH. It would have frightened he living day lights out of them.

I think we should be alright at City if we soak up their early pressure and keep them out for the first five seconds.....

Last night was a good result in my opinion. Once again City will think they're invincible, underestimate us, and put out a weakened side.

We must just enjoy being in the lime light for a while and try our best but no one with a brain cell can expect us to beat a team who average 4 goals a game at home.
I don't know how much that City squad cost but it is blatantly obvious to anyone watching last nights match that they will easily win the Prem and maybe even the Champions league as they must be as good as Bayern and Barcelona now.
The league is our main aim now and hopefully GB can strengthen us even more with a loan signing so we have every chance of a good run in.

I think Big Sam is near the end, to use the excuse that City cost millions and WH had freebies is bad - WH had no fire in their belly and that is the manager's job!!

Our players are far better than West Ham sleeping boys.....:))) at least last week we show our courage in Ewood Park.

We will repeat and look for a change : We WIN it will be a shame for city, So our players know they will come hard on us and I am sure that we ( our Super Back 5 ( Robbo,Dann,Hanley,Sp
urr, Henley/Kane) will not allow more than 3 goals if we lose.

Don't ever compare our sprited new boys- Rhodes,Rudy,Cairney,
Marshel,Lowe,King and the Super Back 5 in the club, We are passionate to win over big clubs............tha
t is Blackburn Rovers :) Game ON.

Selling 1500 tickets for this game in this economic climate is pretty good when you consider that most people think they know the probable result already prior to the game!

No surprise of course that 99% of the country thinks that we will get absolutely battered in the replay - and going off Citys home record and their 4 goals per game plus last nights easyish destruction of West Ham- then they may well be right - so 1500 Rovers fans going is quite positive. As Greavsie said on many occasions - `football is a funny old game` - and to be fair to the loyal fans who sent their hard earned cash they know we will at least put up a fight there - and we are playing better and have more belief (certainly more than BFSs side showed last night) so you just never know - we just might, might mind you, win the toss and at least two corners!

5 seconds? that's a bit longer than your mate managed last night.

reminded me of his last visit to manchester as rovers' manager.

let's just roll over and have our tummy tickled

i hope rovers put up a lot more of a fight (and effort) than allardyce could muster out of a team - my city pal is gutted...he had a tenner on 7-0

A win may be difficult and/or impossible at the Etihad Stadium for the Rovers; however, I am hoping that the lads will be able to produce a shocker in the manner they did against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last year. After all, the lads played very well at Ewood Park last Saturday.

In the meantime, I am prepared to be ridiculed/laughed at by my London colleagues, :(

COME ON, ROVERS!!
