No need to hit panic button, insists Blackburn Rovers boss

Lancashire Telegraph: Gary Bowyer Gary Bowyer

GARY Bowyer has urged his Blackburn Rovers side to stick together as they bid to battle their way out of their worst run of the season.

Rovers, for the first time in Bowyer’s 50-game tenure as manager, suffered a third successive league loss on Tuesday night when they went down with a whimper at home to Bournemouth.

The disappointing defeat left Rovers nine points off the play-offs with 12 matches of the campaign left to play and was greeted by a chorus of boos from the Ewood Park faithful.

With Sunday’s painful East Lancashire derby reverse to high-flying Burnley still fresh in the memory, Bowyer understood the fans’ frustrations.

But ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Huddersfield Town, he believes now is not the time to panic and stressed that he and the players will work harder to put things right.

“What we’ve got to do is regroup, stay calm, make sure we recover well and get ready to go again at Huddersfield,” said Bowyer.

“For some of the lads in the team it’s their first experience of this sort of run.

“We’ve got to remind them that they are good players, they need to work harder and look at each other and see what more we can give.

“Does the booing help? No it certainly doesn’t help. But do I understand it? Yes of course I understand it.

“Everyone connected with this football club has seen what has gone on here in the last couple of years and the supporters want us to be successful and we’re no different – we’re the same, we want to be as successful as we possibly can be.

“We’re still sat in 10th position, we’ve still got 12 games left to play so we’ve got to make sure we all stick together and all keep working together.”

Just three matches ago Rovers raised expectations of a top-six finish with a 1-0 victory at Reading.

But since then their campaign has gone badly off the rails.

They have lost to Bolton, Burnley and Bournemouth, a run of results which Bowyer admits is ‘not good enough’ and means Rovers are just one point better off than they were at this stage last season.

But Bowyer is adamant the trio of losses should not overshadow the progress he insists the club has made this season.

“I think we have made progress and just because we have lost three games on the trot that progress should not be disregarded,” said Bowyer, who has had to rebuild his squad on a smaller budget after the excesses of the 2012-13 campaign led to Rovers making a £36.5m loss.

“We’ve got to realise what has gone on, keep working very hard and keep focused – and I can ensure the Blackburn fans that is what the players and the staff will do.”

Although Rovers had 14 shots on goal on Tuesday – four on target – none troubled underworked Bournemouth goalkeeper Lee Camp.

In contrast Camp’s opposite number Paul Robinson had to make three saves before Lewis Grabban beat him at his near post from 25 yards to settle the contest.

Bowyer said: “It was a very frustrating evening. We started well, which was positive for us as we were disappointed with what happened at the weekend – and you always look at how they react, and I thought they reacted well – but we didn’t really create an awful lot and test their goalkeeper enough.

“That said Paul Robinson had one save first half and I think that was it.

“It was a flat, strange evening around the whole ground and pitch. It was a disappointing evening for us.”

If only you clowns had stuck with Steve Kean instead of hounding him out.....

You were 3rd in the league and still had the core of a Premier League squad of players who were willing to play for him. You could have made at least the play-off's in your first Championship season and from there built a solid team to challenge for promotion.

Look at where you are now...

A very, very weak mid-table Championship side that has just been spanked off Bolton, BURNLEY and Bournemouth, 3 straight defeats, two of them at Ewood Park, and now no chance of reaching the play-off's. Next season you will be hammered with the rightful punishments for your gross mismanagement and overspending of recent years.

In football, you tend to get what's coming to you.

Enjoy your years in the wilderness.

Indeed. Alarm bells began ringing when Sam Allardyce was sacked, followed not too long afterwards by our top man with his excellent knowledge of football, Mr Williams and his team. Rovers have not been the same since.

The only successful player signed from Steve Kean's awful reign is Jordan Rhodes!

On the subject of Rovers, I came across an article in The Mirror a few days ago about Shabby Shebby Singh who is reported to instigate legal proceedings against Rovers as he has, apparently, not been paid for five months now. Rovers supposedly owe him £160,000 which is part of the terms and conditions of his contract when he signed. Unfortunately, I am unable to find it online, hence, my being unable to provide the link here.

One point better off than last season. Surely somebody connected with the club can see we need a proper manager? With people like Alan curbishly currently out of work and available surely somebody at brfc can see his credentials compared with the last four managers we have had! The record that he had with Charlton and west ham coupled with the fact that he is desperate (yes, that desperate) to get back managing, should have somebody at the club knocking his door down! The only way back is with a proper manager. Get gb back doing what he clearly does very well and relieve him of the first team duties.

“It was a flat, strange evening around the whole ground and pitch". This comment just proves that Gary Boring DOES NOT GET IT! The last crumb of comfort that Rovers' fans had was thrown away on Sunday. And when we expected a response from the so-called hurt team, we got an unmotivated, disjointed, unprepared, negative shambles and should have lost by more. No doubt he will be pulling 11 names out of the hat tomorrow morning and will set us up not to lose again, in the hope that the season long futile policy of punting long balls to an immobile striker who's only attribute is his finishing, will pay off for once. I wont hold my breath. Although that might be more entertaining than watching anymore of this predictable, one dimensional, all out non-attacking bile!!!!

Pointless replying, we all know that the only reason we were in 3rd was because it was about 10 games into the season (so already won by Burnley supporters rules) and though we were high in the league, we were also playing appalling but getting lucky results....

It is about passing better and playing as a team within some kind of system. Let the ball do the work and provide a passing option for your team mates. How difficult is that?

Do players actually talk to each other during a game (apart from Robbo)? No. Why not? Why do we watch a game and see things that just aren't right? Dodgy passes inside, reluctance to go-down-the-line, a striker taken off when there is a need to score, paralysis in making a substitution until a period of pressure - usually 10 minutes - leads to us conceding.

well it's good of you to come out and make a statement Gary....at last.

quote "Bowyer is adamant the trio of losses should not overshadow the progress he insists the club has made this season"......and the progress is..we managed to loose a 35 year unbeaten run against our noisy neighbors....we are only one point better off this season than last at this time.....and we still can't win more than two games in a row.

all that said.....the Bolton defeat was bad.....the Burnley defeat was worse...and when you thought the manager and players were going to put things right...up pops AFCB.....and to rub salt into the wounds after our side were boo'ed off...the man in charge has the brass bo**ocks to come out with this...Quote "Bowyer said: “It was a very frustrating evening. We started well, which was positive for us as we were disappointed with what happened at the weekend – and you always look at how they react, and I thought they reacted well – but we didn’t really create an awful lot and test their goalkeeper enough......reacted well?.....what game were you watching....Bournemo
uth should have had 5 or 6 and they would have if it wasn't for Robbo....i will be at Huddersfield tomorrow and if i witness the same boring can't be ar*ed attitude from our lot then i will not be renewing our tickets next year....

Does the Booing help....NO OF COURSE IT DOESN'T.....well get you bleeding fingers out...only you lot can stop it...play well...get results and you wont hear any booing.....earn your bloody money...we have to

A very, very weak mid-table Championship side that has just been spanked off Bolton, BURNLEY and Bournemouth, 3 straight defeats, two of them at Ewood Park, and now no chance of reaching the play-off's.

Yeah Kean was awesome - 3rd in Championship, no denying that.
The only way that would be impressive is if he started his reign with rovers at the bottom of league one, not 10th in the Premier League
Pointless replying, we all know that the only reason we were in 3rd was because it was about 10 games into the season (so already won by Burnley supporters rules) and though we were high in the league, we were also playing appalling but getting lucky results....
My word mr berg have you wet your red knickers again - no comment from you on the burnley result after your previous posts of how we were going to thrash them and no comment about the last lousey result but changing your view a little about the managing idiots at ewood - wow!!

I've no wish to see my team in trouble, however they are....and have been for the last three years. So my friend reverse gear and slide back into the house on your back.
Only returnkng the mild abuse you aimed at me son. Still the same thing applies - you only surface when you think the good ship Rovers is in danger of sinking. Bet todays great result stopped you in your tracks and bet you enjoyed my prediction being right! And yes I do get some right occassionally..

Still up swigging methadone in his Shadsworth tin shack at 3.08 am because the no dad has nothing left in his life to look forward to.

Priceless.

Oh no your notback under another nom de plume . Funny how all the rats emerge on deck again when Rovrrs have a bad time. Crawl back in your hole son the club is a long way off being in the trouble you would like it to be!
Been the same Monika for the last few years matey....and I've mentioned your predictions on more than one occasion. Strange how even the usual mild mannered FR now resorts to abuse, something you never relied on before....maybe the pressure is being felt even in the land of the escargot.

Yes, I did enjoy the prediction being right( for a nice change)I only heard the result after I popped out of my hole to clean my whiskers....however I 'm not getting the promotion bunting out just yet. I don't mind a little mild abuse Frenchie....I've had to learn to endure that, being a Rover all my life!
