Mama Desai was here with us at Ewood Park with a good win over Bristol City.
Appleton first league win and he has promised to have hair transplant an a nose job before the Bollywood trip.
Sad only 13,500 crowds the atmosphere was a bit poor at Ewood Park.
Rhodes score two goals and i heard Jack's voice behind me he's just like Shearer isn't he.
Brag were here somewhere at Ewood Park.
Appleton need a few more wins to win the fans back .Blackburn chance of promotion this season is over.A few more signings of quality players next season and Rovers could be back in PL.
