FULL TIME: Watford 4 Blackburn Rovers 0

BLACKBURN Rovers’ relegation battle is far from over after a second-half collapse at Watford this afternoon.

Rovers looked on course for a point after a goalless opening period at Vicarage Road but Troy Deeney struck twice at the start of the second half before Almen Abdi and Matthew Briggs sealed victory for the promotion-chasing hosts.

Leon Best was then sent off for an off-the-ball incident in injury time.

Defeat left Rovers 20th in the Championship table, two points above the relegation zone ahead of Tuesday’s game in hand at Millwall.

David Dunn fired an effort wide early on in the game, before Greg Sandomierski saved from Fernando Forestieri at the other end.

Scott Dann lashed an indirect free kick over the bar after Watford had been penalised for a backpass, but Sandomierski was required to make a fine stop to keep out a header from Troy Deeney.

Forestieri then curled narrowly wide as the home side had the better of the closing stages of the half.

But Watford were ahead in the 52nd minute as Forestieri found Deeney on the edge of the box and the striker created a yard of space from Gael Givet before firing into the bottom corner.

Nine minutes later, after Jordan Rhodes had put a header over for Rovers, the same combination did the damage once more.

Deeney latched on to Forestieri’s pass and moved clear of Dann before poking past Sandomierski.

A third goal followed in the 67th minute when another Forestieri pass found Abdi, who turned David Jones and lashed his shot into the roof of the net.

Sandomierski then had to tip over Ikechi Anya’s volley before it was 4-0 with 15 minutes left, as substitute Matthew Briggs turned in from eight yards after Rovers had failed to clear a corner.

And things were to get worse in injury time when Best was given his marching orders after an off-the-ball incident with Marco Cassetti, who was booked.

Watford: Manuel Almunia, Lloyd Doyley, Joel Ekstrand (Matthew Briggs 70), Marco Cassetti, Daniel Pudil, Ikechi Anya (Sean Murray 83), Almen Abdi, Nathaniel Chalobah, Jonathan Hogg; Troy Deeney, Fernando Forestieri (Matej Vydra 76).

Time for a total change for Tuesdays match at Millwall - simply put - it has to be a MUST WIN scenario - point could be okay but with difficult home match with Palace and Birmingham (A) - this could yet still be unhappy times for Rovers fans - total clear out required in the Summer, only a PROVEN manager is demanded by Rovers fans to extinguish the last diabolical 2 seasons of under achievers - need new defense, goalscoring midfielders and possibly new striker to replace Rhodes who could go at the end of the season. Predictions : Millwall - 0 points, Palace - 3 points, Birmingham - 0 points - hope these are wrong...

After 30 years of being a season ticket holder I have recently moved away so fortunately I don't have to endure going to watch those disgusting bunch of a$eholes debase our famous blue and white shirts by putting it on their undeserving, ungratefull, egotistical, overpaid backs.

I didnt see the 2 home wins as they wernt aired live on the internet - today was and I watched about 60 minates of utter humiliation.

I never saw us have a single attempt on goal and at times we literally struggled to put 3 passes together. Watford are a reasonably good championship team but we made them look half a notch below Barcelona - to a man, every single one of their eleven was better than ours - that is how much the gulf was between the 2 teams.

When we have a man like Lee Williamson, deservedly in the 1st team - then it just shows have far we have fallen under the Venkyscum ownership - here is a man who has the footballing tallent of a traffic cone - and he was arguably our best player today !

The gutless collapse after the first goal typified the current squads disgusting attitude far better than any words could ever do.

Pitty LB didnt show as much commitment to the Rovers cause as he did to his own self-preservation.

I pity Gary Bowyer - those players made him look like a mug today - the way they (didnt) play for him - he deserved better but then again its what we've come to expect from this bunch of over paid no hopers.

I'm truely staggered we've got more than 50 points but on this showing you cannot see us getting another single point away from home so its beat Palace at home or probably face the drop for a 2nd sucessive year.

Total lack of creativity, especially in the 2nd half. Hardly any passes put together.

Dann's hoof long balls did nothing other than allowing Watford's defense to take control of the ball.

Dunn had the only shot (wide) in the 1st half. Did Best take the field in the 2 nd. half?? Don't mention the 3 pointer by Dann.

The mid field was all out of shape. Defense simply backed off every time Watford came at them.

2nd half it got worse. King yet again gave the ball away, Watford counter, Deeney scores, poor defending.

on 60 mins. Dann gives away their 2nd goal. Givet taken off??? Why??

3rd & 4th goals given away by sloppy defending, especially by Jones.

Utter shambles, more long balls by Dann!

And to cap the afternoon Best gets a red card (Needlessly) 3 match ban!!

3 to play and only one direction - Down Down.

Do the BR players get full pay for this type of performance? The ought to be made to give back +50% and give it to a worthy charity.

733 brave souls attended from Ewood.

Did not expect points today but not 4 -0. Thought we were defending as a unit in last 2 home games but then this.

Best sending off in the last minute of a game already lost really asks questions of the players mentality - just not acceptable but no doubt wages will still be paid.

Keep trying GB you are our best hope but we have a fight on our hands especially if Wolves beat Burnley and we loose the next two

A 4-nil defeat and Leon Best sent off
(and misses the rest of the season) so a disappointing end to a game which was promising at half time. What was said at half time and where was the defence in the second half?

Three must win games for Rovers against Millwall, Palace and Birmingham to save their season. We need Dunny and Pedersen to do something special in these remaining games.

If we can get 9 points from these games then we will stay above the drop zone and stay in the championship next season regardless of what the teams below us do but Radio Rovers say that changes will be needed for the game at Millwall on Tuesday night.

They're NOT bothered. They are not in it for footballing reasons as far as I'm concerned. I've always said it and still think it.

this was one of those games which needed rovers to score first to keep on top of the game, watford came into this game on a bad run of form and lacked confidence, scoring the first goal gave watford the encouragement they were waiting for and rediscovered their old form, rovers need to extra care with their passes away from home, dont treat the ball like a hot potato, too eager to get rid of it without any idea of where its supposed to go.

felt sorry of goddwillie, showed the hunger that rovers lacked today

Decent effort in the first half although absolutely no link between midfield and the front two. Watford looked classy in the second half and clearly have been coached with the principles of possession and good movement. Looks like we need something at Millwall who themselves had a stinker. It won't be pretty but at least we seem to have some spirit and fight in us, despite a bad result.

Awful performance.

We couldn't live with Watford when they stepped up a gear in the 2nd half.

Givet was at fault for first goal and I presume Bowyer thought he was also to blame for the 2nd because he took him off straight away & put on Rekik.

I can't see him playing for Rovers again.

Once again not enough fight shown by the team.
We looked ponderous going forward and created virtually nothing.

Why was Best preferred to Goodwillie after his display in the last 25 mins against Huddersfield?
At least Goodwillie showed some desire.
Best just wasn't in the game and it his stupid sending off in the 95 minute could be a blessing in disguise.

All in all I could not pick one positive from the game and that is a big worry going into the Millwall game on Tuesday.

Awful performance.

We couldn't live with Watford when they stepped up a gear in the 2nd half.

Givet was at fault for first goal and I presume Bowyer thought he was also to blame for the 2nd because he took him off straight away & put on Rekik.

I can't see him playing for Rovers again.

Once again not enough fight shown by the team.
We looked ponderous going forward and created virtually nothing.

Why was Best preferred to Goodwillie after his display in the last 25 mins against Huddersfield?
At least Goodwillie showed some desire.
Best just wasn't in the game and it his stupid sending off in the 95 minute could be a blessing in disguise.

All in all I could not pick one positive from the game and that is a big worry going into the Millwall game on Tuesday.
Sadly, you are probably right about Givet but Rekik was even WORSE when he came on.

His sole contributions were to get booked before he'd even touched the ball then calmly nod the ball down and back across our 6 yard line perfectly for the Watford player to lash the ball home.

If this guy ever makes citys 1st team in a PL game I'll show my ar$e off the town hall clock - absolutely useless !

Millwall seem to be stuttering so you may well be catching them at a good time. Palace and Birmingham hard to call .

We go to Wolves a terrible ground for us and as for Ipswitch we haven't beaten them at the turf in 7 seasons so who knows.

Banter aside the league being as tight as it is from the bottom to midtable creates a lot of nervous excitement.

Having seen Best and King on Tues. I was tunned to see both were on together again.
They were totally ineffective then and seemingly as bad, if not worse today.
King being on loan is not so much of an 'issue', but Best I am afraid is one to add to 'the list' with Murphy and Etuhu in being almost unsaleable.
There are others also needing to move on and its going to take one hell of a deep breath in accepting the huge losses of 'return income' that would give a much needed 'platform' for the reducing parachute payments.

The overhaul required (even with Champs survival) is going to be fairly painful.

I get the feeling Best thinks he's to good for Rovers or this division and is basically waiting for a Prem club to come knocking - which given his form and performances is a joke. The last thing we need at this moment is big time charlies....... we need real men with big b*llocks who are up for a the fight.

It is very tight. Feeling desperate to stay in this very poor league is baffling really. If I wasnt a Rovers fan and it didnt hurt the fans most, I'd say Venkys deserve a second relegation. All they care about is their money and whether they are being done out of too much contract termination money. The squad we had at the beginning of the season should have easily made the play offs under a decent manager. Souness would have got us there. A series of learner managers has demoralised the squad and Im not sure we have enough to see us past the finishing line.

Cardiff unbelievably backed off as the second half wore on and handed you a point because thats all they needed. None of us are out of the relegation battle. Two poor teams. One headed for persistent mediocrity, the other probably heading for League 1. Barely any difference really.[/p][/quote]None of that registers with germtoran. This particular poisonous bag of envy and hate is the ficklest of fickle. A dingle slug who leaves his trail of slime all over these pages as soon as Rovers suffer defeat, yet shrivels up like the spineless coward he is as soon as Village FC take another good hiding.

BBR,

I wouldn't quite say that but get 3 points at Millwall and a result against Palace then you will be I think.

We aren't safe yet in my opinion but some results went for us today as did couple for Rovers so It could have been an even worse day for both teams.

Still plenty to play for best of luck.

Yes Rovers continue to go from strength to strength dont they, and without Rhodes and several other senior first team players they will be even stronger next season I'm sure. Watch out league one.

Dear FA,
my 8 year old daughter and I like to watch sport of any kind at the weekend and during the week if possible. My daughter is a very sensitive individual and loves all kinds of life on our planet. So far we have adopted a jaguar, adopted a panda, saved the whale and of course have named a dolphin and a meerkat.
At weekends we like to watch wildlife documentaries or sporting events, and anything to do with world peace. I think she gets it all off her mother. She sits there surrounded by all her cuddly animal toys watching intently with her big learned eyes in awe and amazement at our amazing democratic and beautiful planet.
I encourage her active participation in sport and we always try and keep on top of world sporting events whilst supporting local events too. We are very proud of our Lancastrian heritage and as such root for all our local teams
Unfortunately she has been very upset this week by the events in Boston, our prayers go out to those caught up in this horrendous episode in human history, anyway as I explained before she is very very sensitive.
As such I have just manged to get her out of her room having been in there all week crying at how cruel humans can be to one another.
I suggested we watch a game of football to cheer us up as Burnley were playing Cardiff in the championship. Imagine my horror when she witnessed a Burnley player assualting another player, from Cardiff, twice during the game by forearm smashing him in the face. It was like watching the film Gangs of New York. My daughter has now locked herself in her bedroom again and refuses to come out, she is inconsolable and all I can hear is her wailing.
I have told her that the governing bodies will protect players by punishing yobs who commit violent acts with retrospevtive judgements. I know Burnley is a local team and as a Lancastrian we were rooting for them but we are willing for Burnley to get punished in the interests of Justice. Please can you help me by punishing this player for his mindless brutality. and when I explain this positive outcome to my daughter, she may once again venture into the world knowing the innocent will be protected.
I look forward to your reply.
Regards.

Your Rovers had a tuff ask today against a good Watford side. I have to admit I was surprised by the heavy defeat after the half time scoreline.

I didn't expect us to get anything from Cardiff so that was a bonus for us.

We both have a tuff run in to the end of the season but with some help from other results we maybe ok.

Millwall seem to be stuttering so you may well be catching them at a good time. Palace and Birmingham hard to call .

We go to Wolves a terrible ground for us and as for Ipswitch we haven't beaten them at the turf in 7 seasons so who knows.

Banter aside the league being as tight as it is from the bottom to midtable creates a lot of nervous excitement.

Hopefully both our teams will stay up and continue the long awaited regular derby meets.

Best of luck with the remaining games.

All the best Harwood.

It is very tight. Feeling desperate to stay in this very poor league is baffling really. If I wasnt a Rovers fan and it didnt hurt the fans most, I'd say Venkys deserve a second relegation. All they care about is their money and whether they are being done out of too much contract termination money. The squad we had at the beginning of the season should have easily made the play offs under a decent manager. Souness would have got us there. A series of learner managers has demoralised the squad and Im not sure we have enough to see us past the finishing line.
Well Merlin,

Obviously I have seen and heard all the media bits and pieces regarding the owners and I just don't understand it when you think of the money they have put in the club. It doesn't make sense especially when they are meant to be business people.

Mr JW would be turning in his grave a good man who but his heart and soul in to his beloved club. I wish we had a JW at Burnley.

We have both played poorly this season but fingers crossed we will both stay up.

All the best chap.

Baffled - Totally Baffled and annoyed.

Gary Bowyer you have shown your total unsuitability to lead our wonderful club.

Question 1

How could you have picked Best and King (the two biggest Prima Donnas and laziest players, especially for an away game where we needed all hands to the pump.) after the Huddersfield game in place of Goodwillie / Gomes / Pederson etc

Your analysis of players is severely lacking if that was your starting lineup today.

Question 2.

What does Goodwillie have to do to prove he is worth his place in the starting lineup.

Credit where Credit is due.

After the Huddersfield game it is possible he should have even started before Rhodes. Not to have even started with him is an absolute disgrace.

By the way I don't have a particular view on Goodwillie one way or another however as a manager I thought you were meant to assess / analyse players and to then play the players on form and in our predicament show absolute 100% commitment to the cause which King and Best are totally incapable of doing. We need front players pressurising the opposition back four to prevent moves building up, always a principle held by the likes of shearer, Newell Sutton and Kevin Davies at his best.

For Best and King to have started today totally baffles me and I suspect they must have something possibly written into their contracts or you are totally incapable of selecting / managing our side so obviously NOT the man for the job regardless if we stay up or go down.

Disgraceful team selection

Oh and by the way I hope you got Zolas autograph. What message / signal did this send out to your players, I will tell you: That you were in awe of the opposition manager before we even played them, kicked a ball and therefore inferior / less experienced.

Do you honestly think Big Sam would have taken his autograph book to Watford today to get the other managers autograph, you are absolutely JOKING.

By that one statement whether meant in jest or not has shown your total unsuitability to manage our WONDERFUL historic club.

Your next team selection will thankfully not include Best but this is NOT your managerial decision but one that has now been taken out of your hands and forced upon you.

Not YOUR managerial experience.

The overhaul required (even with Champs survival) is going to be fairly painful.[/p][/quote]Agree totally but I'm afraid King is NOT on loan, despite being poor whilst on loan we signed him anyway as he was cheap (the only criteria needed these days) I said after the Huddersfield game that Best and King shouldn't start. Goodwillie looked much more up for it when he came on. Still one more win should do it then ......... Who knows what fun and games the idiots from India have planned for the summer.[/p][/quote]Thanks for that reminder/update, I must have been so underwhelmed at the time that I despatched it from my memory. Ope we didn't shell out more than 10k !!! bring back the good old days

I cant wait till the end of the season after yet another venkeys induced nightmare. Tuesday night celebrating a one goal victory against the mighty Huddersfield when three years ago it could of been Chelsea quickly down to earth as the irrepressable Watford hammer us . Surely if we survive things can only get better or have I said that before ? The only certain with Rovers whilst Venkeys are in charge is the uncertancy. What will next year bring god only knows. Can it be any worse ? Probably is the unfortunate answer. Can we expect any lessons to be learned ? Have we any money left ? Can we get rid of the deadwood ? This list of questions can go on and on but I like many others are just hoping and praying our owners finally make one good decision. You can make your own mind up as to what decision you think is best for Rovers,should they stay and get real football people in charge, go and leave the club in financial ruin or carry on as norm and let us embrace Champions league football shortly. Its in my blood ill always be there hope you never give up either even if it means a trip to Crawley and a day out to Morecambe.
The dream lives on

rovers muddled thinking was typified when dann thought it was a good idea to take the shot from that indirect free kick inside the box and made a complete mess of it, dann stick to defending properly, let the strikers do that, he doesnt need to be interfering in those situations, if they were a goal infront that would have made getting a draw much more straightforward, instead rovers finished the game without a shot at target in the whole match,

its also pointless having 2 out and out strikers if either of them are not prepared to defend from the front, making the keeper and defenders hurry and make them as uncomfortable as possible, stop their attacks in their half, closing them down early, force them into mistakes that you can capitalise on

venkys should be getting the preparations ready now about what questions they need to ask before installing the manager so that mistakes of this season are not repeated,

as soon the season finishes they can be ready to talk to new prospective managers, who can have ample time available to assess the squad and the club and make the required moves to take the club forward

Good evening Leitchy

I respect your viewpoint however Best has shown no desire for the fight at all. Cannot even bring himself to chase back after the ball once he has lost it or even chase opposition back four players down.

He has also had long enough now to get himself fit even if having to employ a personal fitness expert way from the club to do some extra training.

I know people with full time jobs that have been injured and got back to peak fitness in shorter time than he has had.

He has an attitude issue whereby he is not even prepared to work 100% for the team.

A luxury we can ill afford at this critical period of time.

Agreed.

Also - What has Nuno Gomes done wrong?

He can hold the ball up better than anyone in the side certainly better than Rhodes / Best / Goodwillie and he actually puts a shift in and scores goals.

Givet was at fault for first goal and I presume Bowyer thought he was also to blame for the 2nd because he took him off straight away & put on Rekik.

I can't see him playing for Rovers again.

Once again not enough fight shown by the team.
We looked ponderous going forward and created virtually nothing.

Why was Best preferred to Goodwillie after his display in the last 25 mins against Huddersfield?
At least Goodwillie showed some desire.
Best just wasn't in the game and it his stupid sending off in the 95 minute could be a blessing in disguise.

All in all I could not pick one positive from the game and that is a big worry going into the Millwall game on Tuesday.
Yep, Givet resorted to cheese eating surrender monkey but all those on here clamoured for the WARRIOR that he is.
Too many mistakes, second half shocking but we will just have to move on and get on with it.

Patrick - I fear you have hit the nail right on the head.

We have the worst owners in the football league.

We have the worst boardroom in the football league but because we have the worst owners we will continue to have the worst bordroom.

And because we have the worst owners and the worst boardroom we will continue to have one of the worst squads in our entire history.

MA was correct in his assessment of our squad - it is unbalanced, overblown with a lot of pensioners on huge money just seeing out the remaining year or two of their undestinguished careers.

All the young "up and coming players" we have signed all seem to have terrible attitudes (ala King).

The only players I'd want to keep for next season would be - Kean, Hanly, Henley, Dann, Morris, Rhodes - unfortunately, football dosent work like this and we'll be left with Murphy, Etuhu, King, Orr etc and Hanley, Rhodes and Dann will all be sold on making us an even worse team next season than we have been this one !

A 4-nil defeat and Leon Best sent off
(and misses the rest of the season) so a disappointing end to a game which was promising at half time. What was said at half time and where was the defence in the second half?

Three must win games for Rovers against Millwall, Palace and Birmingham to save their season. We need Dunny and Pedersen to do something special in these remaining games.

If we can get 9 points from these games then we will stay above the drop zone and stay in the championship next season regardless of what the teams below us do but Radio Rovers say that changes will be needed for the game at Millwall on Tuesday night.
I suppose it depends how you look at it. At half time we knew we just needed to step up a gear and although we were comfortable first Hal we needed to step it up and as with most teams we have plated this season if we score first they can't cope with us. I must say though that we have made many teams look worse than they are this season and Millwall were absolutely dire when we played them in Tuesday and by some miracle we lost 1-0 when they couldn't have complained if e had beaten them 6-0. So I think you will beat them and stay up. Weren't you in 4th when Steve Kean was sacked? Did true Rovers fans want him out? Or was it a minority? I always liked Kean. I thought he handled himself very professionally and has maybe now shown that he was a better manager than he was given credit for. Good luck guys.

So I think you will beat them and stay up. Weren't you in 4th when Steve Kean was sacked? Did true Rovers fans want him out? Or was it a minority? I always liked Kean.

Look up.
Sorry, I'm long sighted so can't see anything so (incredibly) close.

Not a lot for any of us to be proud of really.

No true Rovers fans were happy with Kean, he destroyed our squad and got us relegated. He had managed to manipulate his way into a football management job and the only way of keeping it was to keep the Asian accountants happy, regardless of the effect on the club. We are still stuck with the results of his stupidity in our squad for the next year or two. He is a despicable creature and the whole of football has turned their back on him. He may never work again, but that won't worry him because his pockets were filled at Blackburn's expense.

STEVE KEANS LEGACY, Yes true but don`t forget we`re still having to pay a big fat wad of cash every week for STEVE KEAN`S "defensive coach" and drinking pal,driver home from the pub, HENDRY ,apparently he still pockets 8,000 quid a week from Rover`s , nobody knows what he actually does for it , or at least or did before Bowyer took over the first team , all I see him do is stand on the touchline and stare into space , he must be contemplating how he is there and has no responsibility, is untouchable ,unsackable, failed at every coaching job he has ever had, and stays under the radar and does not have to put in the slightest effort for his 400,000 pounds a year.

we have struggled to put 10 passes together in any home game for the past 3 years, even when big sam was in charge. It is because our movement off the ball is not good enough.When teams like chelsea came to blackburn, there movement off th ball was amazing, they had 3 options every time one of there playrs had it. We are not fit enough an the likes of Pederson and dunn cant get around the pitch any more, need young enthusiastic footballers next year.

Hello Happiness,

Well done Stanley, indeed. Managed by a young and dedicated ex-Rover, Leam Richardson.
I've seen Stanley a couple of times this season and went to their "must win" game" against Morecambe, and guess what - they won. If I had a tenner for each "must win" game Rovers have not even tried to win in the last three seasons, I'd be a rich man.
And how did Stanley win ? They chased, they ran themselves into the ground, they actually supported each other as a team. They actually put in a performance with professional pride to earn their corn. Simply as that.
I reckon there's such a malaise at Ewood, such a culture of "who gives a F***" from the top to the bottom, that Shanks, Cloughie and Sir Alex all together couldn't shift this bunch.
What I'd love to see - and it won't happen - is for Bowyer to pick those youth players who have done well over the last seasons and are still with us, he must know them better than anyone else, and give them a run-out. Second wish, is that if not this season, he getsthe chance to do the same next season, whichever league were in.
Alas, it won't happen and this farce will continue as long as Venkys are here.

I'm sure there is a lot more to it than was seen from the outside and you guys will know better than anybody. It was just purely that you were in a play off place when he was sacked and it has gone horribly wrong since although it is probably more the manager selection since that has been the problem. I bet Blackpool couldn't believe their luck when they got compensation for an unproven manager that had achieved nothing and was clearly out of his depth in the championship!

Anyone who claims we made a mistake in getting rid of Kean are either winding us up or are completely ignorant. It is like thanking a man for stemming the blood flow after he himself has knifed you in the back.
I'm sure there is a lot more to it than was seen from the outside and you guys will know better than anybody.

olive f - i can see how it looks when peering through the crack in the window at rovers current plight - but rest assured that kean was a primary contributing cause to the effect of what you see at rovers now.

remember when he took over in 2011 we were in the top half of the premiership and only escaped relegation that season by the skin of our teeth. following season we were in the bottom 3 all season and at christmas kean was telling us we were still on course for a top 8 finish - he was/is/and always be the ultimate fantasy league manager - only difference is that he was given a real football club to play with.

i could go through his catalogue of lies and deceit - but every rovers fan knows them all to well to reiterate it again - needless to say i am sure if you google kean's top 20 lies or quotes you will find it entertaining (UNLESS YOU WERE A VICTIM OF THEM)

don't you think its strange that NOT ONE SINGLE CLUB has offered him even a coaching job, let alone a manager's role? - - as somebody else says he is damaged goods and unfortunately he has irreparably damaged a once proud football club in the process.

if you liked him - try him at watford and you will be chucking sending him down south oxhey pretty soon to see the hoodlums

I couldn't see us getting anything at Watford, and would've bitten your hand off if you'd offered me a draw before the game. However, although the end result didn't come as a shock the scoreline, and the way we gifted it to them, did.

Not sure why Givet was taken off, whether it was a lack of match fitness or because he was nowhere near as good as he was against Huddersfield? Either way, I'm guessing that, injuries or suspensions aside, that may have been his last game in a Rovers shirt.

Best's red card means he misses the remainder of the season but, to be fair, even in the few games he has played he's contributed nothing. Quite a few fans said he was an excellent buy for this division but I've always said that he was an awful acquisition. Injury prone and a poor scoring record did not warrant the club spending £3M on him. I wanted him to prove me wrong but all he's done is prove to be far worse than even I'd imagined. He's easily the front-runner for 'worst Championship but of the season'. Why Goodwillie wasn't rewarded for his excellent cameo on Tuesday is anybody's guess.

Hanley and Kazim-Richards should go straight back into the starting XI, but I'd
seriously consider swapping King for Morris too as the Norwegian has shown about as much pace as a free-kick taken using a medicine ball.

A few points regarding what other posters have said on this thread.

MattNewcastle - as much as I agree with what you said about Best and King, your comments about Bowyer autograph hunting is a completely juvenile overreaction because of a bad result. Also, have you ever commented on a story after we've won a game?

mickey taker (or should that be 'nil bye mouth'?) - you are constantly calling us a clueless, classless club. Any chance that you could explain to us all how what you, and your fellow Burnley posters, are doing can be defined as having class? Also, the fact that you all seem blissfully ignorant of your own team's shortcomings would lead us to believe that you're the clueless ones on here.

BRFC75 - why are you still harping on about Hendry? He has nothing to do with first team affairs and, therefore, has no relevance to any of the stories that are on these pages. Seriously, you'd give a deaf man a headache.

Harwoodstblue - Bolton don't have an experienced manager, they have Dougie Freedman who'd had less than two years managerial experience when they appointed him. People need to get over their fixation with experience, it doesn't guarantee success, just look at Redknapp and QPR.

Definitely not. I can assure you Millwall on Tuesday were appalling and I am confident you will beat them. They may have beaten us but it was one of those baffling results when on another day we would have thrashed them.

I think you speak for the majority of realistic Rovers fans. Kean in my view contributed to the situation with Venkys. Venkys incompetent ownership alone was enough to cause damage but in Kean they had an utter cretin willing to front their lies and believe some of them and follow their policies for the sake of status and money. He was bad news and as you say, the fact that he has not secured another manager job at any level of football (bearing in mind how many of those PL managers said he was doing a good job), says all we need to know. I will never regret seeing the back of him and I would bet my mortgage that any other group of fans would be worried if they thought he was going to be there manager.

Saying Kean was doing a good job having us at the top of the championship is like praising an arsonist for putting a fire out that he started. It's worrying that there are so many gullible people in this country that were took in by that despicable conman. Some of you lot must be a dream for cold callers.

We need Dunny and Pedersen to do something special in these remaining games. If we can get 9 points from these games then we will stay above the drop zone and stay in the championship next season regardless of what the teams below us do but Radio Rovers say that changes will be needed for the game at Millwall on Tuesday night.[/p][/quote]I suppose it depends how you look at it. At half time we knew we just needed to step up a gear and although we were comfortable first Hal we needed to step it up and as with most teams we have plated this season if we score first they can't cope with us. I must say though that we have made many teams look worse than they are this season and Millwall were absolutely dire when we played them in Tuesday and by some miracle we lost 1-0 when they couldn't have complained if e had beaten them 6-0. So I think you will beat them and stay up. Weren't you in 4th when Steve Kean was sacked? Did true Rovers fans want him out? Or was it a minority? I always liked Kean. I thought he handled himself very professionally and has maybe now shown that he was a better manager than he was given credit for. Good luck guys.[/p][/quote]No true Rovers fans were happy with Kean, he destroyed our squad and got us relegated. He had managed to manipulate his way into a football management job and the only way of keeping it was to keep the Asian accountants happy, regardless of the effect on the club. We are still stuck with the results of his stupidity in our squad for the next year or two. He is a despicable creature and the whole of football has turned their back on him. He may never work again, but that won't worry him because his pockets were filled at Blackburn's expense.[/p][/quote]Anyone who claims we made a mistake in getting rid of Kean are either winding us up or are completely ignorant.

As for us beating Wolves if things don't go to plan against Millwall , I won't hold my breath.

60 games at Wolves in all competitions and 11 wins 9 draws. Now that really does tell you we have a tuff ask.
Well we are out of the bottom 3 currently. If we match those below us, we remain out. Even thats a big ask for us though.

He also got them off to a good start this season before moving on.
Bolton spotted this and well done to them whilst Venkys went for Appleton with who had an appalling track record and less experience than Freedman.
I think the calibre of manager we have had since Sam left leaves a lot to be desired and there can be nothing lost in appointing a more experienced manager. Or we could just carry on with more of the same.

I don't doubt that Freedman has been a manager longer than Appleton, I was saying that he's not an experienced manager in terms of time served. He had a good run at Palace but you and I both know that had Rovers appointed him there would've been uproar.

If my memory serves me right Dougie Feedman brought Lenny Lawrence along with him. Lawreance had over 20 yeats of Managerial experience including taking clubs up to the top division.
That to my mind was where Freedman was different to Kean Berg & Appleton - he was not just his own man but knew the value of experience instead of trying to know it all and bring in your mates under you.

That is why if Rovers go for a young man it should be with conditions - can you imagine Souness accepting some of Rovers current squad as they are?
I know Gary Megson was mentioned and he wouldnt stand any nonesnse

Whatever the outcome Rovers need to rebuild and for that to have any chance of success the off field Management structure must be right and appropriate for a long term development plan with or without Venkys. My fear is a knwwjerk reaction or non reaction like when Kean kept us on the last day of the season they did not act as they should have - result is what we see now - must not make the same mistake again

I said when they all came back from India that Bowyer's comments were almost exactly those of Kean after his first mission trip over there - wanting reassurance for players and fans. Came back with a job for himself though. We all know Venkys cant be stupid. They are successful business people. They dont make mistakes repeatedly. This is a deliberate policy of giving the job to whoever is handy at the time or whoever is offered on the cheap because they don't lay any importance on the role of the 1st team manager and that is the sum of it. On a more positive note, the great Tugay is returning for the Legends game. Bet there's a bigger crowd at that game than the league games

I couldn't see us getting anything at Watford, and would've bitten your hand off if you'd offered me a draw before the game. However, although the end result didn't come as a shock the scoreline, and the way we gifted it to them, did.

Not sure why Givet was taken off, whether it was a lack of match fitness or because he was nowhere near as good as he was against Huddersfield? Either way, I'm guessing that, injuries or suspensions aside, that may have been his last game in a Rovers shirt.

Best's red card means he misses the remainder of the season but, to be fair, even in the few games he has played he's contributed nothing. Quite a few fans said he was an excellent buy for this division but I've always said that he was an awful acquisition. Injury prone and a poor scoring record did not warrant the club spending £3M on him. I wanted him to prove me wrong but all he's done is prove to be far worse than even I'd imagined. He's easily the front-runner for 'worst Championship but of the season'. Why Goodwillie wasn't rewarded for his excellent cameo on Tuesday is anybody's guess.

Hanley and Kazim-Richards should go straight back into the starting XI, but I'd
seriously consider swapping King for Morris too as the Norwegian has shown about as much pace as a free-kick taken using a medicine ball.

A few points regarding what other posters have said on this thread.

MattNewcastle - as much as I agree with what you said about Best and King, your comments about Bowyer autograph hunting is a completely juvenile overreaction because of a bad result. Also, have you ever commented on a story after we've won a game?

mickey taker (or should that be 'nil bye mouth'?) - you are constantly calling us a clueless, classless club. Any chance that you could explain to us all how what you, and your fellow Burnley posters, are doing can be defined as having class? Also, the fact that you all seem blissfully ignorant of your own team's shortcomings would lead us to believe that you're the clueless ones on here.

BRFC75 - why are you still harping on about Hendry? He has nothing to do with first team affairs and, therefore, has no relevance to any of the stories that are on these pages. Seriously, you'd give a deaf man a headache.

Hi SRVP28

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect yours, but when I travel a round trip of 5 / 6 hours to see the Rovers play at a cost to someone who is on job seekers allowance and see the likes of Best and King perform like prima donnas and the way they did - I feel I am entitled to an opinion. I am certainly not fickle or a dingle but someone who has the love at the club at heart.

As for praise - I heaped it on the team after getting home in the early hours of Wednesday morning - thanking Goodwillie especially for his fantastic effort in a fraught last twenty minutes against Huddersfield.

How Gary Bowyer could have started with Best or King instead of Goodwillie - who I don't have a particular sentiment for one way or another - defies belief.

With the selection of King and Best we were going into a game and onto the pitch with 18.18% of our team not even trying.

Something we can ill afford at the moment if ever. Sometimes a team can carry a player for their exceptional attacking contribution Ginola for Newcastle springs to mind (no I don't support Newcastle) but we cannot, especially two of them.

But we ended up with Appleton who had been in the job for only two minutes. I'd have rather taken Freedman with his track record as opposed to Appleton's
Three inexperienced managers on the trot has got us here. Perhaps it's time for change!!!
Like I said, the majority of fans were demanding an experienced manager, something that Freedman isn't.
I know, but neither was Appleton.

I think you're missing the point of my original comment. You said that Bolton are now in the playoffs because they have an experienced manager but it's not the case. Bolton are in the playoffs because they gambled on a manager with one respectable season under his belt and it paid off.

You are right I agree, but Freedman had Lennie Lawrence by his side (experience ). I don't know whether he went with him to Bolton or not.

Three must win games for Rovers against Millwall, Palace and Birmingham to save their season. We need Dunny and Pedersen to do something special in these remaining games.

If we can get 9 points from these games then we will stay above the drop zone and stay in the championship next season regardless of what the teams below us do but Radio Rovers say that changes will be needed for the game at Millwall on Tuesday night.
I suppose it depends how you look at it. At half time we knew we just needed to step up a gear and although we were comfortable first Hal we needed to step it up and as with most teams we have plated this season if we score first they can't cope with us. I must say though that we have made many teams look worse than they are this season and Millwall were absolutely dire when we played them in Tuesday and by some miracle we lost 1-0 when they couldn't have complained if e had beaten them 6-0. So I think you will beat them and stay up. Weren't you in 4th when Steve Kean was sacked? Did true Rovers fans want him out? Or was it a minority? I always liked Kean. I thought he handled himself very professionally and has maybe now shown that he was a better manager than he was given credit for. Good luck guys.
No true Rovers fans were happy with Kean, he destroyed our squad and got us relegated. He had managed to manipulate his way into a football management job and the only way of keeping it was to keep the Asian accountants happy, regardless of the effect on the club. We are still stuck with the results of his stupidity in our squad for the next year or two. He is a despicable creature and the whole of football has turned their back on him. He may never work again, but that won't worry him because his pockets were filled at Blackburn's expense.
Hi Oliver. You are right. True Rovers supporters did not hound him out and the minority that did should recognise and admit that we are facing relegation due to their bullying boo boy tactics.

Deary me. I really feel sorry for you. You have such a massive lack of understanding of the situation. I bet you've been duped by a conman more than once in your life with that level of naivety. If a football club reaches relegation because of the absence of Steve Kean, you want to offer him your services as his agent. You could make a fortune getting him a manager job at a club looking to stay safe and build on that. Oh hang on, he already had an agent that made a fortune getting him a manager job and guess what?

The fact that they keep giving the managers job "to whoever is handy at the time or whoever is offered on the cheap" tells me they aren't serious and don't give a **** about football.
They've relegated us from the Prem to the verge of div 1 and still aren't interested in a 'proper' manager.
They're taking the ****, but not out of me for much longer.
Me neither. I've stuck with it through the Kean era, Black, Berg, Bowyer, Appleton and now Bowyer and I wont be next season.

That's a bit presumptuous to state that we would be in the top six if Kean had stayed. We were playing terrible but got a few lucky wins and you must have seen that.The wheels would have come off eventually for him.
I see he hasn't been snapped up by another top club or any club for that matter.

Three must win games for Rovers against Millwall, Palace and Birmingham to save their season. We need Dunny and Pedersen to do something special in these remaining games.

If we can get 9 points from these games then we will stay above the drop zone and stay in the championship next season regardless of what the teams below us do but Radio Rovers say that changes will be needed for the game at Millwall on Tuesday night.
I suppose it depends how you look at it. At half time we knew we just needed to step up a gear and although we were comfortable first Hal we needed to step it up and as with most teams we have plated this season if we score first they can't cope with us. I must say though that we have made many teams look worse than they are this season and Millwall were absolutely dire when we played them in Tuesday and by some miracle we lost 1-0 when they couldn't have complained if e had beaten them 6-0. So I think you will beat them and stay up. Weren't you in 4th when Steve Kean was sacked? Did true Rovers fans want him out? Or was it a minority? I always liked Kean. I thought he handled himself very professionally and has maybe now shown that he was a better manager than he was given credit for. Good luck guys.
No true Rovers fans were happy with Kean, he destroyed our squad and got us relegated. He had managed to manipulate his way into a football management job and the only way of keeping it was to keep the Asian accountants happy, regardless of the effect on the club. We are still stuck with the results of his stupidity in our squad for the next year or two. He is a despicable creature and the whole of football has turned their back on him. He may never work again, but that won't worry him because his pockets were filled at Blackburn's expense.
Hi Oliver. You are right. True Rovers supporters did not hound him out and the minority that did should recognise and admit that we are facing relegation due to their bullying boo boy tactics.
Deary me. I really feel sorry for you. You have such a massive lack of understanding of the situation. I bet you've been duped by a conman more than once in your life with that level of naivety. If a football club reaches relegation because of the absence of Steve Kean, you want to offer him your services as his agent. You could make a fortune getting him a manager job at a club looking to stay safe and build on that. Oh hang on, he already had an agent that made a fortune getting him a manager job and guess what? He got us relegated.
I understand perfectly well that for all his weaknesses and inexperience, under Kean we would be in the top six not the bottom six. I also understand that NONE of you are going to admit this as it makes you complicit in our downfall.

As previously stated, I am not claiming that Kean was a good manager but I am absolutely certain that we would still be nearer the top than the bottom. As for his future prospects I suspect that he is too traumatised to put himself forward. Tell me honestly, was he worse than Berg and Appleton?

Well we don't really know how he would have gone on in the Championship. He did have those lucky wins at the start of the season but could it have continued?
I agree Berg and Appleton were no better but that was down to Venkys refusal to appoint a proper experienced manager. If they had I have no doubt we would not be in this position.

Give me a break will you? I was trying to run the club single handed with interference rather than support from our advisors. I didn't mind the chants of the knuckle dragging numbness but when Jack Sraw got on my case it was time to walk. Anyway, I'm delighted that you got what you wanted. Henning must have been a breath of fresh air for you and he has promised me a cut from his pay off in return for archiving him the opportunity. I still follow events at Blackburn passionately and I am sure that the lessons in recruitment, team selection, selection, tactics, transfers and motivation I learned from Michael Appleton will ensure I get back in the game quickly now that the Wildcats year is over. Thanks for recognising me old friend. friend I really appreciate it.

Good luck guys.[/p][/quote]No true Rovers fans were happy with Kean, he destroyed our squad and got us relegated. He had managed to manipulate his way into a football management job and the only way of keeping it was to keep the Asian accountants happy, regardless of the effect on the club. We are still stuck with the results of his stupidity in our squad for the next year or two. He is a despicable creature and the whole of football has turned their back on him. He may never work again, but that won't worry him because his pockets were filled at Blackburn's expense.[/p][/quote]Hi Oliver. You are right. True Rovers supporters did not hound him out and the minority that did should recognise and admit that we are facing relegation due to their bullying boo boy tactics.[/p][/quote]Deary me. I really feel sorry for you. You have such a massive lack of understanding of the situation. I bet you've been duped by a conman more than once in your life with that level of naivety. If a football club reaches relegation because of the absence of Steve Kean, you want to offer him your services as his agent. You could make a fortune getting him a manager job at a club looking to stay safe and build on that. Oh hang on, he already had an agent that made a fortune getting him a manager job and guess what? He got us relegated.[/p][/quote]I understand perfectly well that for all his weaknesses and inexperience, under Kean we would be in the top six not the bottom six. I also understand that NONE of you are going to admit this as it makes you complicit in our downfall.[/p][/quote]That's a bit presumptuous to state that we would be in the top six if Kean had stayed. We were playing terrible but got a few lucky wins and you must have seen that.The wheels would have come off eventually for him. I see he hasn't been snapped up by another top club or any club for that matter.[/p][/quote]As previously stated, I am not claiming that Kean was a good manager but I am absolutely certain that we would still be nearer the top than the bottom. As for his future prospects I suspect that he is too traumatised to put himself forward. Tell me honestly, was he worse than Berg and Appleton?[/p][/quote]Hi Steve, you can't fool us, I see you arent employed yet. Still if you keep coming on here posting your sh1te you may get to change history like the americans do with their constant bombardment of bollax. For now though we still think you were cr@p. You took us down a divsion and then when you scraped three lucky wins you resigned thinking you could go around saying you were at the top when you left. You are the Frank Bruno of football Fook off steve[/p][/quote]Give me a break will you? I was trying to run the club single handed with interference rather than support from our advisors. I didn't mind the chants of the knuckle dragging numbness but when Jack Sraw got on my case it was time to walk. Anyway, I'm delighted that you got what you wanted. Henning must have been a breath of fresh air for you and he has promised me a cut from his pay off in return for archiving him the opportunity. I still follow events at Blackburn passionately and I am sure that the lessons in recruitment, team selection, selection, tactics, transfers and motivation I learned from Michael Appleton will ensure I get back in the game quickly now that the Wildcats year is over. Thanks for recognising me old friend. friend I really appreciate it. Angry From Accrington

Total lack of creativity, especially in the 2nd half. Hardly any passes put together.

Dann's hoof long balls did nothing other than allowing Watford's defense to take control of the ball.

Dunn had the only shot (wide) in the 1st half. Did Best take the field in the 2 nd. half?? Don't mention the 3 pointer by Dann.

The mid field was all out of shape. Defense simply backed off every time Watford came at them.

2nd half it got worse. King yet again gave the ball away, Watford counter, Deeney scores, poor defending.

on 60 mins. Dann gives away their 2nd goal. Givet taken off??? Why??

3rd & 4th goals given away by sloppy defending, especially by Jones.

Utter shambles, more long balls by Dann!

And to cap the afternoon Best gets a red card (Needlessly) 3 match ban!!

3 to play and only one direction - Down Down.

Do the BR players get full pay for this type of performance? The ought to be made to give back +50% and give it to a worthy charity.

733 brave souls attended from Ewood.
773 brave soles from Blackburn? I think you will find that about a third are actually southern based rovers fans, a third honest decent Rovers fans who have followed the club through thick and thin for years, the remaining third? foul mouthed, ignorant, drunken "phoney brave scum bags" who seem to feel shouting and spitting obscenities into the faces of 12 year olds is an expression of their support for the team. Better still, it`s Millwall on Tuesday, show us how brave you are then.
