Rovers boss: We won't rush Robinson

Lancashire Telegraph: Paul Robinson Paul Robinson

BLACKBURN Rovers are yet to put a date on Paul Robinson’s return to the first team – with Gary Bowyer taking a cautious approach to the goalkeeper’s comeback.

Robinson has not played for Rovers for a year but continued his comeback from back surgery and a blood clot with a 90-minute run-out in the under 21s’ 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough on Monday night.

The 34-year-old England international, who also featured in a behind closed doors game against Carlisle last week, is keen to get back in action as soon as possible but is likely to feature in more matches before making his first-team return.

Bowyer wants to be sure that Robinson is ready and has been reluctant to reveal when he expects the keeper to be in contention.

“It’s the same with anybody after injury,” said the Rovers boss, whose own career was curtailed by a back injury.

“When they’re coming back after a long period, you can’t just rush them back in.

“He’ll tell you different to what we think as a medical team, we’re just taking it game by game and seeing how he recovers from it.

“But he’s going in the right direction.

“The worst part of being a footballer is being injured and at times it’s very lonely and you wonder whether you’ll get back.

“But he’s worked very hard with the medical staff and he’s reaping the rewards now, because he’s nearing full fitness.”

Robinson was delighted to be back in action with the under 21s against Middlesbrough.

“It’s exactly 12 months since I last played and for someone in my position it’s difficult to not play for 12 months,” he told Rovers Player.

“It’s been a long wait and it was nice to be back on the pitch.

“I played a game at the training ground last week and didn’t really get much out of it because they were difficult conditions, but I feel like I got a lot out of this game.

“It’s just that final bit now, I need to keep pushing and keep working hard.

“I don’t want to put a time or a date on it but I feel good.

“I’ll see how the next week or two weeks go and see where I end up.”

Simon Eastwood has started Rovers’ last two matches after moving in front of Jake Kean in the pecking order, and Bowyer is relishing the prospect of a three-way battle for the keeper’s jersey.

Robinson appears favourite to win the battle, with many years of Premier League football under his belt.

“Paul is going to provide competition for the goalkeeping spot, which is great for us as a squad,” said the manager.

“His experience, his talking and know-how will also prove invaluable throughout the season.

“We’ve got Jake and Easty fighting it out, and Robbo is going to come into that as well.

“Competition is good. We’re getting competition here and people aren’t happy because they’re not playing, which only adds to the competition.

“People then are fighting for their places, which puts pressure on, but it’s good pressure.”

Rovers under 21 boss Eric Kinder handed a debut to Connor Mahoney against Middlesbrough, with the 16-year-old featuring as a substitute after signing from Accrington Stanley last week. Markus Olsson, Fabio Nunes and Yann Songo’o also played.

My favourite part of this article:

With Blackburn playing incisive and attractive football, Burnley struggled to cope as they played for pride.

Once again for your reading pleasure...

All of the no-dad 95'ers who post on these pages will not recall this period of complete and utter dominance by the Clarets but it lives for ever in the pages of history. A record that will never be equalled.

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 league games during a period in both clubs history when the teams were playing in the same league and the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which time Jack Walker was conned out of £100 million+.

I think this puts the 'who is the better team' argument to bed. And as the last two season have proved, the rightful order has been restored.

What's next?

I think this puts the 'who is the better team' argument to bed. And as the last two season have proved, the rightful order has been restored.

What's next?
It's about honours my friend. HONOURS.
it's all about THE PRESENT my friend, THE PRESENT.
Presently you haven't beat us for 34/5 years.

my concern is that Robbo was on the wane before his injury - he had a really poor record for conceding from shots form outside the area, another indication of keepers on the downturn.

Thought Eastwood looked capable on saturday and made a good save towards the end. I certainly wouldn't be rushing robbo back.

As for mr no life, I like to go back to our first 6 fixtures with Burnley:

November 1888 Burnley 1 – 7 Blackburn Rovers Turf Moor
4 February 1889 Blackburn Rovers 4 – 2 Burnley Ewood Park
26 October 1889 Blackburn Rovers 7 – 1 Burnley Ewood Park
22 February 1890 Burnley 1 – 2 Blackburn Rovers Turf Moor
18 October 1890 Burnley 1 – 6 Blackburn Rovers Turf Moor
22 November 1890 Blackburn Rovers 5 – 2 Burnley Ewood Park

Alternatively looking at the overall record there's not much to choose:

Rovers 39 wins, Burnley 35

or Honours; Rovers 11 (1 charity shield - not including the 'milk cup'!), Burnley 5 (includes two charity shields)

But who cares that much really - we've won nowt compared to Man U and Liverpool but I love rovers no matter what.

I disagree about Robbo being "on the wane" before his injury. I think it was more of a case of him losing interest due to the on going fiasco of Kean and Venkys at the time.
Looking at him, Robbo was as fed up as the rest of us at what was going on.
I think with Kean out of the way and GB in charge we could see a different Robbo once he's fit again.

Once again for your reading pleasure...

All of the no-dad 95'ers who post on these pages will not recall this period of complete and utter dominance by the Clarets but it lives for ever in the pages of history. A record that will never be equalled.

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 league games during a period in both clubs history when the teams were playing in the same league and the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1
24 Feb 1965 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-4
09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4
01 Jan 1966 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-2
27 Dec 1976 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley D 2-2
08 Apr 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-1
26 Dec 1977 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 2-3
27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which time Jack Walker was conned out of £100 million+.

I think this puts the 'who is the better team' argument to bed. And as the last two season have proved, the rightful order has been restored.

What's next?
It's about honours my friend. HONOURS.
I just love putting you clowns in your place.
1962 to 1979 17 years

Hahahahahahahahhahah
ahahahahahauauhahaha

Try 35 yes 35 years you put no one in there place mate only yourself

All of the no-dad 95'ers who post on these pages will not recall this period of complete and utter dominance by the Clarets but it lives for ever in the pages of history. A record that will never be equalled.

Burnley's incredible run against rivals Blackburn Rovers over 14 league games during a period in both clubs history when the teams were playing in the same league and the playing field was considered level...

In 14 consecutive league games Burnley won 10 and drew 2.

06 Oct 1962 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 2-3
02 Apr 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 1-0
01 Oct 1963 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 3-0
19 Oct 1963 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2
10 Oct 1964 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers D 1-1

09 Oct 1965 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers L 1-4

27 Mar 1978 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 0-1
26 Dec 1978 Burnley v Blackburn Rovers W 2-1
14 Apr 1979 Blackburn Rovers v Burnley W 1-2

Makes a complete mockery of the no-dads 7 wins over a 34 year period during which time Jack Walker was conned out of £100 million+.

I think this puts the 'who is the better team' argument to bed. And as the last two season have proved, the rightful order has been restored.

What's next?
It's about honours my friend. HONOURS.
it's all about THE PRESENT my friend, THE PRESENT.
Presently you haven't beat us for 34/5 years.
PRESENTLY they haven't, have they?
PRESENTLY our run is still in full swing and on going. That's the PRESENT.
As I said, 10 wins in 14 consecutive league games with 2 draws. A record never to be equalled and it belongs to Burnley FC.

But we don't m@sturbate over it.

The real Blackburn Rovers fans must wince every time the 95'ers start up their 34 year chant, knowing that its a complete farce, an embarrassment to those who were supporting the club long before Jack Walker began ej@culating pound coins.

Blackburn fans - once again crying inside due to their rivals continued dominance.

Why are Burnley fans willing to spend so much time and effort to find a few years they had a few wins against us? It all smacks of a raging jealousy or envy of our FA cup League Cup and full members cup successes plus the fact that we have been in quite a few semis and finals we did not win. Maybe its the grounds one looks like it requires demolition the other is a state of the art modern stadium.I think even this season will turn around again so its a bit premature to state that you have a better team maybe if you beat us by more than 2 goals at Ewood you will prove this season you are better but somehow I think you are in for another mauling.

Hahahahahahahahhahah

ahahahahahauauhahaha
Oh dear. Not too bright in your old age are you Grandpa. Did you read that post too quickly, get over excited and rattle out a response before wiping up the sticky mess and thinking it through.

Let me explain... the post highlights an incredible run of 10 league wins in 17 years for Burnley versus 7 wins (including cup games) in 34 years for Blackburn.

Not only that, those 14 league games were consecutive and played when both teams were on a level playing field financially. Any decent, proper Rovers fan would know this.

So indeed I did put the previous clowns in their rightful place, as I have with you, you ignorant sack of old man faeces.

Hahahahahahaha (written laughter is always a classy touch isn't it).

Look at the table you dumb **** idiot - that tells you who is the better team, not some back in time statistics when you were a Premier League club being bankrolled by a fat senile old man who was being duped out of his money.

Mauling? When was the last time you gave ANYONE a mauling? You are crap, I am having a cheeky tenner on Yeovil putting your set of overpaid mercenaries to the sword on Saturday.

How can someone spend every waking hour of every day thinking about the team he supposedly hates . It must really, really hurt. Go and see a doctor.

They spend so much time and effort out of shear desperation dreaming of the day they can actually get the better of us. Which, being a small club with no money, they never will.

I agree with HarwoodStBlue and Little Ronnie. Robbo had gone off the boil in coping with long-range efforts before his surgery and I have no doubt that the fiasco with Kean and Venky’s was a contributory factor. But in addition to all that I suspect his back was also causing him problems.

Kean and Eastwood are pretty good at shot-stopping but their handling is mighty suspect and I for one hope Robbo – who laudably stood four-square behind the supporters during the dark days of Kean - is soon fully fit, back to his best and our ‘No.1’ again. Good luck Paul.

And that was the main problem Robinson had for a couple of years at Rovers. Some of the long range shots he started diving once the ball was already in the net. I doubt he will be good enough now but hope he can prove us wrong.

Here Here.......Robbo knew the farce that was unfolding before his very eyes just like the supporters did. He knew the fans weren't stupid. It couldn't help but to affect his game with all that going on.

We need to cut the wage bill and Robinson in my opinion has got his work cut out playing catch up + the fact he is on 30 grand a week,,time to off load him,,,l,m sure there is a future for him at another club but not at Ewood, but we wish him all the best and thank him for his time at Ewood,

Who is Mark 2?

Just reminiscing about a fantastic day is all, you crying mid-table no-dad.

Blackburn Rovers relegated
at Ewood Park
by Dave Whelan's Wigan
with a caped chicken on the pitch

The utter shame of it.
