Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer insists youngster Jake Kean is still in his plans

Lancashire Telegraph: Jake Kean Jake Kean

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has stressed that Jake Kean remains a firm part of his plans – but he has not ruled out allowing one of his goalkeepers out on loan.

Kean had been a regular in the Rovers goal in the second half of last season and the early stages of the current campaign, but the 23-year-old lost his place to Simon Eastwood in December and has now slipped to third in the pecking order following Paul Robinson's return.

The impressive form of Robinson makes the former England keeper favourite to keep his place for the foreseeable future, so it is possible that Rovers could allow Kean or Eastwood to go on loan to get some much needed game time.

“We’re blessed at the moment to have three goalkeepers really pushing each other to get that number one jersey,” Bowyer said.

“With regards to one of them going on out on loan, that is something we would have to assess if there were any enquiries.”

Bowyer, though, has insisted that Kean and Eastwood are both very much still in his long-term thoughts.

“We can’t forget the importance Jake played to the team last season when he first burst in,” said the Rovers boss.

“This season also I remember when he made a hell of save at home to Leeds United when it was still 0-0 and we won 1-0.

“We’re blessed that we’ve got him. He’s still only 22, he’s a great size, people rightly still say he’s still a young age to be a goalkeeper playing first-team football.

“He’s a big asset to Blackburn Rovers and he provides competition for Robbo and Easty.

“Easty signed in the summer as a number three but he’s worked tremendously hard and pushed on and he’s played his part this season.

“You only have to look at the save he made at QPR to get us a point and who knows how important that point could be come the end of the season?”

Midfielder Corry Evans was included in Rovers’ squad for their under 21 clash at Aston Villa last night, having previously lined up againsy Tottenham last week following a four-month lay-off with ankle ligament damage.

January signing Bryan Dabo and teenage ace Connor Mahoney were also selected to face Villa.

Potentially a very good keeper, just lacks confidence and experience.

Jake Kean is going to be a TOP KEEPER, I have absolutely no doubt about that. Even big Brad had a few dodgy years when he was younger. I'm hoping some of the idiots don't hound him out.

Good idea to get Kean out on loan. It won't do him any harm to get some regular games and more experience. Definitely one for the future but I think he was thrown in a bit too early.

Good plan to let one out on loan. Not sure why this has been brought up now though, either putting him in the shop window or just answering a question guess.

I think Jake Kean is far better than Simon Eastwood. I always have done. Don't get me wrong, I think Eastwood can be a good goalkeeper, but at times he doesn't seem to perform and doesn't have quite the same vocal ability as the other two we have i.e. Kean and Robinson.

I do hope so. They remind me of an era when football was football. When trophy's weren't bought. You remember that time don't you? That stretch of 81 years between titles for you guys. Come on you know - when the level playing field was in place called the maximum wage. Couldn't win a raffle then could you. You then smashed up football with your mini-golden era and bought the Prem. Then when its back to normal resources and husbandry you end up where you are now.

Yep Wooden seats - they bring back the good old days.

We did not buy success!..We bought the players that gave us success!..the same as Utd, City, Arsenal, Chelsea and even Burnley. If Burnley buy a player, is it to make them a worse team? When Burnley got promoted did they buy players to make this promotion happen? If so then did they not buy success?
Blackburn where lucky enough to have a Mr Jack Walker in their history, they used his input and money to win the league, any club would have done the same including Burnley, clubs are doing the same to this day. Every time a club buys a player they are trying to buy success....Think about it.

All before our so called "mini-golden era" Unless all your players are freebies you will have bought your way out of this division should that miracle happen. All teams buy either to win something or avoid relegation ,your statement about buying the Prem is total rubbish bourne out of downright jealousy. We had good backing and a good manager and great players.If you could buy the Prem then City would have won it last season with what they spent. Get over it.

You mis the point by a true country mile. If you have a budget of £1m for player purchase as a consequence of your gate money etc, its a genuine budget born of careful husbandry and control of your club. If someone comes along and sticks in £10m and your budget then becomes £11m, this distorts the whole market. Money in excess of the market order creates the "purchase".

Look how you fared before and after the Walker era. You bought and are buying players consequential to the footprint of the club. That;s not buying success (if you acquire any) - its growing it from first principles. If you buy players that are of a considerably higher price than your footprint supports, and you utilise an external subsidy, and the success is then greater than previously enjoyed, then that success has been bought.

That's what your club did. That's distorted success as a consequence of subsidy AKA buying success.

United have the third largest revenue stream in the world. They have the largest cash reserves. If they buy someone for £50m, that is proportionate to the clubs footprint. Buying Shearer for £3.5m was as a sole consequence of unearned income being deployed.

We are all paying the price today. Think about it.

City bought it the year before. City and Chelsea are the new Rovers. You wielded the wrecking ball. You stuffed everyone - including yourselves. Just go and check your club's Balance Sheet; to say its all over for you is the tragedy. You now depend on the largess of a family of Indian's who could not give a to/ss. They are rich enough to do a right-off, but don't have the inclination to stick money in to keep the bloated nonsense going.

Under Bill Fox you were a community club of real stature. A credit to the community and to football. Your club had been, in the very large part, carefully run with it history and tradition passed form one generation to another. Now you genuinely face tragedy. The cost of that Premiership title is truly now awful. And the cost is born by us all. The Rochdales, Burys and Oldhams etc are all now in a Football League thats stuffed.

So please, do yourself a favour - don't tell me to go get over it. You go and find a way to deal with your footballing life when the legs go from under you. Its coming. 15,000 gates, a reluctant financing owner who didn't get what Rovers were all about, the history and meaning etc, and £65m of debt by seasons-end and rising.

You have a problem and I for one hope you survive and go back to the carefully husbandry that was your hall-mark. Though, you may well go under - and I really hope that does not happen.

I do hope so. They remind me of an era when football was football. When trophy's weren't bought. You remember that time don't you? That stretch of 81 years between titles for you guys. Come on you know - when the level playing field was in place called the maximum wage. Couldn't win a raffle then could you. You then smashed up football with your mini-golden era and bought the Prem. Then when its back to normal resources and husbandry you end up where you are now.

Yep Wooden seats - they bring back the good old days.
We did not buy success!..We bought the players that gave us success!..the same as Utd, City, Arsenal, Chelsea and even Burnley. If Burnley buy a player, is it to make them a worse team? When Burnley got promoted did they buy players to make this promotion happen? If so then did they not buy success?
Blackburn where lucky enough to have a Mr Jack Walker in their history, they used his input and money to win the league, any club would have done the same including Burnley, clubs are doing the same to this day. Every time a club buys a player they are trying to buy success....Think about it.
You mis the point by a true country mile. If you have a budget of £1m for player purchase as a consequence of your gate money etc, its a genuine budget born of careful husbandry and control of your club. If someone comes along and sticks in £10m and your budget then becomes £11m, this distorts the whole market. Money in excess of the market order creates the "purchase".

Look how you fared before and after the Walker era. You bought and are buying players consequential to the footprint of the club. That;s not buying success (if you acquire any) - its growing it from first principles. If you buy players that are of a considerably higher price than your footprint supports, and you utilise an external subsidy, and the success is then greater than previously enjoyed, then that success has been bought.

That's what your club did. That's distorted success as a consequence of subsidy AKA buying success.

United have the third largest revenue stream in the world. They have the largest cash reserves. If they buy someone for £50m, that is proportionate to the clubs footprint. Buying Shearer for £3.5m was as a sole consequence of unearned income being deployed.

We are all paying the price today. Think about it.
Here's the point Rob, if Burnley had a Jack Walker figure you'd all be telling us how proud you all were to have a Burnley born & bred, working class, passionate and loyal supporter of your club, who was a self made multi millionaire and had invested his wealth into the club he loved so don't deny it! The bad news for you lot is he was born and bred 10 miles away and supported the club you all exist to hate.

20 years on and you lot are STILL so totally riddled with envy that he did what he did and expect us to believe this self righteous nonsense that Burnley wouldn't want exactly the same given half the chance. Blaming Jack Walker for spending £3.5mil on Shearer for the ludicrous amounts of money being thrown about today is the biggest load of bullsh*t I've ever heard.

Try to concentrate on your own clubs current little purple patch instead of continuing this absolute obsession with hating Rovers and trying to justify the reason for your club being 2nd best for 35 years, way way before Jacks money poured salt into your already gaping wounds.

Think about it.....

All before our so called "mini-golden era" Unless all your players are freebies you will have bought your way out of this division should that miracle happen. All teams buy either to win something or avoid relegation ,your statement about buying the Prem is total rubbish bourne out of downright jealousy. We had good backing and a good manager and great players.If you could buy the Prem then City would have won it last season with what they spent. Get over it.
City bought it the year before. City and Chelsea are the new Rovers. You wielded the wrecking ball. You stuffed everyone - including yourselves. Just go and check your club's Balance Sheet; to say its all over for you is the tragedy. You now depend on the largess of a family of Indian's who could not give a to/ss. They are rich enough to do a right-off, but don't have the inclination to stick money in to keep the bloated nonsense going.

Under Bill Fox you were a community club of real stature. A credit to the community and to football. Your club had been, in the very large part, carefully run with it history and tradition passed form one generation to another. Now you genuinely face tragedy. The cost of that Premiership title is truly now awful. And the cost is born by us all. The Rochdales, Burys and Oldhams etc are all now in a Football League thats stuffed.

So please, do yourself a favour - don't tell me to go get over it. You go and find a way to deal with your footballing life when the legs go from under you. Its coming. 15,000 gates, a reluctant financing owner who didn't get what Rovers were all about, the history and meaning etc, and £65m of debt by seasons-end and rising.

You have a problem and I for one hope you survive and go back to the carefully husbandry that was your hall-mark. Though, you may well go under - and I really hope that does not happen.
Well said that man.

The true cost of that ill-gotten Premiership title is the demise of not only the football league but also the demise of the club that planted the evil seed in the first place. The Walker money has poisoned football and Blackburn Rovers should be ashamed of their part in this diabolical consequence. Some would say their current situation is well deserved.

Cluck cluck.

The free rides ends here Blackburn... You reap what you sow.

I know it is totally against my own advice but I have to answer this drivel.

Simple fact of life, if it suits the little green eyed monster sat on you shoulder pecking away every second of you miserable life then I would be quite happy to say that Rovers bought the PL Championship.

But one thing is totally certain, until the PL ends the name of Blackburn Rovers will be on that trophy and the role of honour for ever.

Another thing is totally certain, it is now impossible for any small town club to do what Rovers did, so your pathetic little club in it's rabbit hutch ground will never, ever have a chance.

And that gives us bragging rights forever.

Just go and check your club's Balance Sheet; to say its all over for you is the tragedy. You now depend on the largess of a family of Indian's who could not give a to/ss. They are rich enough to do a right-off, but don't have the inclination to stick money in to keep the bloated nonsense going.

Under Bill Fox you were a community club of real stature. A credit to the community and to football. Your club had been, in the very large part, carefully run with it history and tradition passed form one generation to another. Now you genuinely face tragedy. The cost of that Premiership title is truly now awful. And the cost is born by us all. The Rochdales, Burys and Oldhams etc are all now in a Football League thats stuffed.

So please, do yourself a favour - don't tell me to go get over it. You go and find a way to deal with your footballing life when the legs go from under you. Its coming. 15,000 gates, a reluctant financing owner who didn't get what Rovers were all about, the history and meaning etc, and £65m of debt by seasons-end and rising.

You have a problem and I for one hope you survive and go back to the carefully husbandry that was your hall-mark. Though, you may well go under - and I really hope that does not happen.
Well said that man.

The true cost of that ill-gotten Premiership title is the demise of not only the football league but also the demise of the club that planted the evil seed in the first place. The Walker money has poisoned football and Blackburn Rovers should be ashamed of their part in this diabolical consequence. Some would say their current situation is well deserved.

Cluck cluck.

The free rides ends here Blackburn... You reap what you sow.
And if a born and bred Burnley fan had done the same at Burnley, you'd feel the same way would you?

And repeating myself.

I know it is totally against my own advice but I have to answer this drivel.

Simple fact of life, if it suits the little green eyed monster sat on you shoulder pecking away every second of you miserable life then I would be quite happy to say that Rovers bought the PL Championship.

But one thing is totally certain, until the PL ends the name of Blackburn Rovers will be on that trophy and the role of honour for ever.

Another thing is totally certain, it is now impossible for any small town club to do what Rovers did, so your pathetic little club in it's rabbit hutch ground will never, ever have a chance.

And that gives us bragging rights forever.

Rovers striker Dean Rittenberg netted on his England debut this Tuesday afternoon.
The 17-year-old, who has 12 goals for Rovers at Academy and Under-21 level this season, scored England's final goal in a 4-0 win over Belgium at St. Georges Park.

Rittenberg started on the bench for the Three Lions, but came on after 72 minutes in the second half, making his mark with an 85th minute headed goal.

Rittenberg replaced Middlesbrough's Bradley Fewster who had earlier ensured a comfortable afternoon for the Under-18s. The Boro boy followed up his first half goal with with two further strikes to complete a hat-trick before the Rovers forward completed the rout.

Rittenberg will link up with England once more when the Under-18s face Croatia in two games next month.

I do hope so. They remind me of an era when football was football. When trophy's weren't bought. You remember that time don't you? That stretch of 81 years between titles for you guys. Come on you know - when the level playing field was in place called the maximum wage. Couldn't win a raffle then could you. You then smashed up football with your mini-golden era and bought the Prem. Then when its back to normal resources and husbandry you end up where you are now.

Yep Wooden seats - they bring back the good old days.

All before our so called "mini-golden era" Unless all your players are freebies you will have bought your way out of this division should that miracle happen. All teams buy either to win something or avoid relegation ,your statement about buying the Prem is total rubbish bourne out of downright jealousy. We had good backing and a good manager and great players.If you could buy the Prem then City would have won it last season with what they spent. Get over it.
City bought it the year before. City and Chelsea are the new Rovers. You wielded the wrecking ball. You stuffed everyone - including yourselves. Just go and check your club's Balance Sheet; to say its all over for you is the tragedy. You now depend on the largess of a family of Indian's who could not give a to/ss. They are rich enough to do a right-off, but don't have the inclination to stick money in to keep the bloated nonsense going.

Under Bill Fox you were a community club of real stature. A credit to the community and to football. Your club had been, in the very large part, carefully run with it history and tradition passed form one generation to another. Now you genuinely face tragedy. The cost of that Premiership title is truly now awful. And the cost is born by us all. The Rochdales, Burys and Oldhams etc are all now in a Football League thats stuffed.

So please, do yourself a favour - don't tell me to go get over it. You go and find a way to deal with your footballing life when the legs go from under you. Its coming. 15,000 gates, a reluctant financing owner who didn't get what Rovers were all about, the history and meaning etc, and £65m of debt by seasons-end and rising.

You have a problem and I for one hope you survive and go back to the carefully husbandry that was your hall-mark. Though, you may well go under - and I really hope that does not happen.
I know it is totally against my own advice but I have to answer this drivel.

Simple fact of life, if it suits the little green eyed monster sat on you shoulder pecking away every second of you miserable life then I would be quite happy to say that Rovers bought the PL Championship.

But one thing is totally certain, until the PL ends the name of Blackburn Rovers will be on that trophy and the role of honour for ever.

Another thing is totally certain, it is now impossible for any small town club to do what Rovers did, so your pathetic little club in it's rabbit hutch ground will never, ever have a chance.

And that gives us bragging rights forever.
Well said Nick, and that is what eats the Dingles up inside, day in day out.
Endless envy, forever....

Well said that man.

The true cost of that ill-gotten Premiership title is the demise of not only the football league but also the demise of the club that planted the evil seed in the first place. The Walker money has poisoned football and Blackburn Rovers should be ashamed of their part in this diabolical consequence. Some would say their current situation is well deserved.

Cluck cluck.

The free rides ends here Blackburn... You reap what you sow.
And repeating myself.

Bragging about buying a league title?

How embarrassing.

That's like bragging about having a degree and then admitting you bought the certificate mail order. Actually it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if that's what you've got hanging on your wall... you sir are a fake, your club is a fake, and your league title is a fake. But at least you acknowledge that.

You lost your bragging rights last year, when following your shambolic relegation from the Premier League with a chicken on the pitch, you almost gave us a second relegation party in 2 seasons by narrowly avoiding the drop into League One on the last day of the season and therefore finishing well below Burnley.

Since then you have been looking up at us, not just for the odd week or two, but for two years. We have dominated you and shown you how a real club operates in the Championship. Hopefully you will take on some of what you've learnt because you are likely to be here for some considerable time, if you're lucky, while we it would seem are destined for bigger, better things.

I like most Burnley fans feel nothing but pride in the way our club has bravely fought back from the bring of extinction to where we are now.

It would appear that on a level playing field you are no match for the Clarets, would you not agree?

Actually, why don't you award yourself a bravery award for your keyboard bravery you brave bravester.

From narrowly avoiding the drop to the conference in front of almost 20,000 (actually 15,000 but whats 5,000 here or there) to the dizzy heights of 2nd in the 2nd tier in Feb playing infront of 11,000 every other week.

Oh so brave..... I applaud you. We all applaud you.

Bssed is this mon real, rovers have never been as weak with goal keepers in 25 yeas of watching rovers, eastwood couldn't catch a cold n kean wll he couldn't control n tell a 4 year ld what to do nevr mind the defence,

the deflooks so much stoger when robbo plays youa see his back line don't panic n have confidence in him but e kean or eastwood play well its just a boot n hope for a corner or throw in

2 very weak goal keeper's what should be sold simple as that, there not good enough!!!!


These players n the staff need to no if they get beat by the dirty dingles then they'de best retire from the game win or die simple as that nothing less is acceptable no matter about the form of um

Looks like you might have a few retiring come March 9th then

On current form you're going to have your backsides panned. Danny Ings and Sam Vokes must be looking forward to this game more then any this season given your tissue paper defence. An early goal for the Clarets and I feel we could well be looking at a rout.

And that says it all about the no-dads.... we are your world. You have nothing left this season and defeat at home against us would see the suicide rate in Shadsworth rocket.

And the stats say we have the third highest clean sheet record behind QPR & Brighton I think it was (cba googling it, got a life) and as published in this paper two weeks ago
So tissue paper defence is another of your flat-earth rambles Baldric
Btw I see Derby are only 2 behind you now and look tied on for 2 nd spot with their run in
Oh dear, play offs after all? Things are not looking so rosey now Baldric! Nothing left this season, no, only 16 games or 48 points to play for, fat lady aint singing yet ...not by a long chalk

I do hope so. They remind me of an era when football was football. When trophy's weren't bought. You remember that time don't you? That stretch of 81 years between titles for you guys. Come on you know - when the level playing field was in place called the maximum wage. Couldn't win a raffle then could you. You then smashed up football with your mini-golden era and bought the Prem. Then when its back to normal resources and husbandry you end up where you are now.

Yep Wooden seats - they bring back the good old days.

All before our so called "mini-golden era" Unless all your players are freebies you will have bought your way out of this division should that miracle happen. All teams buy either to win something or avoid relegation ,your statement about buying the Prem is total rubbish bourne out of downright jealousy. We had good backing and a good manager and great players.If you could buy the Prem then City would have won it last season with what they spent. Get over it.
City bought it the year before. City and Chelsea are the new Rovers. You wielded the wrecking ball. You stuffed everyone - including yourselves. Just go and check your club's Balance Sheet; to say its all over for you is the tragedy. You now depend on the largess of a family of Indian's who could not give a to/ss. They are rich enough to do a right-off, but don't have the inclination to stick money in to keep the bloated nonsense going.

Under Bill Fox you were a community club of real stature. A credit to the community and to football. Your club had been, in the very large part, carefully run with it history and tradition passed form one generation to another. Now you genuinely face tragedy. The cost of that Premiership title is truly now awful. And the cost is born by us all. The Rochdales, Burys and Oldhams etc are all now in a Football League thats stuffed.

So please, do yourself a favour - don't tell me to go get over it. You go and find a way to deal with your footballing life when the legs go from under you. Its coming. 15,000 gates, a reluctant financing owner who didn't get what Rovers were all about, the history and meaning etc, and £65m of debt by seasons-end and rising.

You have a problem and I for one hope you survive and go back to the carefully husbandry that was your hall-mark. Though, you may well go under - and I really hope that does not happen.
Well said that man.

The true cost of that ill-gotten Premiership title is the demise of not only the football league but also the demise of the club that planted the evil seed in the first place. The Walker money has poisoned football and Blackburn Rovers should be ashamed of their part in this diabolical consequence. Some would say their current situation is well deserved.

Cluck cluck.

The free rides ends here Blackburn... You reap what you sow.
And repeating myself.

I know it is totally against my own advice but I have to answer this drivel.

Simple fact of life, if it suits the little green eyed monster sat on you shoulder pecking away every second of you miserable life then I would be quite happy to say that Rovers bought the PL Championship.

But one thing is totally certain, until the PL ends the name of Blackburn Rovers will be on that trophy and the role of honour for ever.

Another thing is totally certain, it is now impossible for any small town club to do what Rovers did, so your pathetic little club in it's rabbit hutch ground will never, ever have a chance.

And that gives us bragging rights forever.
Bragging about buying a league title?

How embarrassing.

That's like bragging about having a degree and then admitting you bought the certificate mail order. Actually it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if that's what you've got hanging on your wall... you sir are a fake, your club is a fake, and your league title is a fake. But at least you acknowledge that.

You lost your bragging rights last year, when following your shambolic relegation from the Premier League with a chicken on the pitch, you almost gave us a second relegation party in 2 seasons by narrowly avoiding the drop into League One on the last day of the season and therefore finishing well below Burnley.

Since then you have been looking up at us, not just for the odd week or two, but for two years. We have dominated you and shown you how a real club operates in the Championship. Hopefully you will take on some of what you've learnt because you are likely to be here for some considerable time, if you're lucky, while we it would seem are destined for bigger, better things.

I like most Burnley fans feel nothing but pride in the way our club has bravely fought back from the bring of extinction to where we are now.

It would appear that on a level playing field you are no match for the Clarets, would you not agree?
Oh so brave. Here you go, have another special Burnley trophy for being such a brave club.

Actually, why don't you award yourself a bravery award for your keyboard bravery you brave bravester.

From narrowly avoiding the drop to the conference in front of almost 20,000 (actually 15,000 but whats 5,000 here or there) to the dizzy heights of 2nd in the 2nd tier in Feb playing infront of 11,000 every other week.

Oh so brave..... I applaud you. We all applaud you.

Brave Burnley - being brave since 1979.

See you in May.....
I'm sorry to break this to you Mungo, but..

You have the worst goal difference of any team in the top half, and apart from Wigan you have scored the least goals of any team in the top half, Rhodes has zero goals in 8 games, After QPR Burnley have the best defensive record in the league and we have lost the fewest games, only 3 in 31. The point is, it's really not looking good for you in the derby this time around, and I wouldn't be so cocky if I were in your position. You team offers no real threat any more and your fullbacks are shockingly poor at this level. I don't think Blackburn Rovers can compete with Burnley in any area of the pitch this time, I really don't.

Obviously you are trying your hardest to put a positive spin on your disastrous season, and your desperation for firstly Leicester, then QPR, and now Derby to overtake us shows just how much our success hurts you. And we are having a successful season, however much you disagree. Things are looking very rosy for the Clarets at the moment.

After our recent draw at QPR we were 13 points behind Leicester. We have since closed that gap to 7 points. Leicester have to play Nottingham Forest away next. QPR have taken 1 point in 9. Derby have yet to hit a bad patch since their revival, but they will do, points will be dropped along the way and their run-in is as hard as anyone else's.

The result that should concern you is that of Wigan, another of the mid-table group who have now not only overtaken you but also stretched the gap over you, and with several other mid-table clubs now making up points, given your lousy form, a bottom half finish is once again looking likely. Reading away for you next and another spanking and more lame excuses from bumbling Bowyer while we play Nottingham Forest and then Derby (who we thrashed 3-0 away) at Turf Moor. We haven't lost at home in a year by the way.

Given that your other game before the derby is away at Bolton the gap could well be even bigger than the already embarrassing 17 points by the time we come to town.

Danny Ings and Sam Vokes must be looking forward to this game more then any this season given your tissue paper defence. An early goal for the Clarets and I feel we could well be looking at a rout. And that says it all about the no-dads.... we are your world. You have nothing left this season and defeat at home against us would see the suicide rate in Shadsworth rocket.[/p][/quote]And the stats say we have the third highest clean sheet record behind QPR & Brighton I think it was (cba googling it, got a life) and as published in this paper two weeks ago So tissue paper defence is another of your flat-earth rambles Baldric Btw I see Derby are only 2 behind you now and look tied on for 2 nd spot with their run in Oh dear, play offs after all? Things are not looking so rosey now Baldric! Nothing left this season, no, only 16 games or 48 points to play for, fat lady aint singing yet ...not by a long chalk The world is ROUND Baldric and Burnley have won nowt yet See you in May.....[/p][/quote]I'm sorry to break this to you Mungo, but.. You have the worst goal difference of any team in the top half, and apart from Wigan you have scored the least goals of any team in the top half, Rhodes has zero goals in 8 games, After QPR Burnley have the best defensive record in the league and we have lost the fewest games, only 3 in 31. The point is, it's really not looking good for you in the derby this time around, and I wouldn't be so cocky if I were in your position. You team offers no real threat any more and your fullbacks are shockingly poor at this level. I don't think Blackburn Rovers can compete with Burnley in any area of the pitch this time, I really don't.

Sorry Baldric , you are the deluded one. Everyone else is going to drop points except Burnley? The Derby thing is not wishful thinking Chimp, it is fact.You day you have closed gap on Leicester, true but Derby have done the same to you , and are closer to you than you are to the Foxes
You have a good season so far but you are now getting more draws than wins and I would not be dismissive of Forest either as you are.
Not beaten at home in a year, then it is past due
You may well end up as the best team EVER in the whole wide world but it aint happened yet
You are suffering from celebratus prematurus, a common condition in footy fans who 's team has won nowt in 50+ years...
Oh and the earth is round, stop gibbering

Hang on a minute Mungo, aren't we the team that's dropping points? Isn't that why some of your kind are going on about our "poor result" at Bournemouth, and how the other clubs are catching us?

So if we are dropping points and we're still making ground on top spot, what happens when we start to put a winning run together?

The truth is Mungo, deep down you know we are more than capable of winning the league, it scares you sh!tless. And its hilarious!

Hahaha, poor old jealous no-dads. Forever in our shadow.

I do hope so. They remind me of an era when football was football. When trophy's weren't bought. You remember that time don't you? That stretch of 81 years between titles for you guys. Come on you know - when the level playing field was in place called the maximum wage. Couldn't win a raffle then could you. You then smashed up football with your mini-golden era and bought the Prem. Then when its back to normal resources and husbandry you end up where you are now. Yep Wooden seats - they bring back the good old days.
Probably explains where you got the chips on your shoulders from???

That may be your silliest post ever Baldric. I think, but I can't be sure, that somewhere you actually agreed with my point that you are dropping points. It is also clear that you ARE and have relied on the teams around and above you dropping points for you to stay in the hunt for promotion
But your best form is in the past and the teams such as Leicester and Derby are coming strong at the finish, while you lot huff and puff along , losing momentum.
What did you say about fortress Turf?? (sniggers quietly) Forest to play at Turf
Hmmm, too cocky by half .
