Blackburn Rovers crash out of Lancashire FA Senior Cup to Bury

Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn Rovers crash out of Lancashire FA Senior Cup to Bury Blackburn Rovers crash out of Lancashire FA Senior Cup to Bury

FIRST-TEAM duo Bryan Dabo and Jake Kean made costly late mistakes as Blackburn Rovers lost their Lancashire FA Senior Cup quarter-final 2-1 to Bury at Brockhall, denying them the chance to face rivals Burnley at Turf Moor in the last four.

Dabo, not for the first time in the game, gave the ball away in midfield and, after the Shakers broke out, his blunder was compounded by goalkeeper Kean, who let Temitope Obadeyi’s shot slip through his fingers and into the net.

Rovers dominated the first half and missed a penalty through Dean Rittenberg.

But they fell behind in the 56th minute after Markus Olsson’s poor back pass led to Kean giving away a corner, from which Richard Hinds headed home.

Olsson atoned for his error in the 72nd minute when he raced on to a Rittenberg pass and, without breaking stride, fired an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

Dabo and - at the other end - Navid Nesseri wasted good chances to win it before Obadeyi did just that in injury-time with the help of Kean and Dabo. Josh King played 61 minutes for Rovers, whose interest in the competition now ends.

Instead it will be Bury taking on Burnley in the semi-finals.

Interesting to see that, unlike Burnley, the Rovers Development squad contains plenty of first team names and they all appear to be power-****:

Dabo - made a mistake (Another quality Mogodon Bowyer signing)
Kean - made a mistake (Explains why fatty Robinson still gets a game)
Ollsson - made a mistake (Sat on massive wages but with zero interest)

Not much developing going on here.

N'Zonzi is a former no-dad who managed to escape after refusing to play for them, he went to Stoke for about £3m. Dabo on the other hand sounds like he will have to be paid to leave.

Bryan who?

Yes, another quality GB signing.
He must rank alongside Songo'o, another GB signing who never featured in the first team.

What was the point in signing yet another defensive midfield player in January who is still not ready to play now in early April?

NO DEAL FOR DUNN SAYS GALLACHER
Former Rovers striker Kevin Gallacher (pic above). Said on Radio Lancashire on Tuesday evening (1.4.14) that David Dunn should not be given a new contract when his current one expires at the end of the season.
Gallacher was commenting on the Rovers v Brighton Game and his co commentator from Radio Lancashire thought Dunn should be given a new 12 month contract at the end of the season. “If he only plays 20 games a season plus a few cameo appearances as sub he is well worth it”, pronounced the Radio Lanc’s pundit. “Not so, said Gallacher, “as good as Dunn has been and as good as servant he has been Rovers must use his salary to sign a new younger mid-field player. Pronounced Gallacher.
“Rovers have no money are heavily in debt and must spend every penny wisely” concluded Gallacher.
Do you agree with Gallacher? It is certainly a controversial topic, and will divide the fans, but I see were Gallacher is coming from.

Are the Daily Mail banned from Ewood Park? Is there something I do not know? Have they upset Mrs Anuradha (I like to be entertained) Desai? In the past with an article slamming her ownership of the club?
Or do, the Daily Mail just not care what happens at Ewood Park. Are Blackburn Rovers now no more than an irrelevance now the Premiership days are gone.
I do not know, maybe I missed something.

Reg Rover says...

I know we are all gutted by the successive Derby defeats by both Bolton and Burnley. A cruel blow to any hopes Rovers have of a possible play off place.Gary Bowyer’s (pic above) management is now coming under scrutiny from Rovers fickle fans.
Let us get things into perspective.

Rovers looked doomed for successive relegations just 12 short months ago. Following the disastrous reigns of Kean, Henning Berg and Michael Appleton. Bowyer took over the reins with less than 10 games to play, promoted from reserved team manager.
At the time I honestly thought Rovers were doomed for Division One.
How Bowyer scraped together the wins and draws needed from a demoralised team, that had no less than four men at the helm in less than 12 months, I don’t know. But he did.
Why he was not confirmed as manager this season until the 11th hour is a mystery. He was obvious choice and deserved it.
Let us look at the difficulties he has been faced with.
He has had to slash the wage bill selling or loaning out in excess of 15 players. In other words trying to get rid of the rubbish brought in by Steve (the man who cannot win football matches) Kean and Jerome (the man who ruined Blackburn Rovers) Anderson on Sky High wages. He has had to assemble a team capable of competing in the Championship. Because make no mistake last season Rovers, despite Kean’s spending frenzy, were not up to the standard of a Championship division team.
I said at the time that Rovers should forget any fanciful thoughts of promotion back to the Premiership, what we needed was a team capable of competing in the Championship division. Bowyer has given us that.
He has done it by slashing wages, getting rid of the dross. And then purchasing some astute Bargain Buys and loan deals. Ok, it’s not ideal, it’s not what Rovers pre-Venky’s were used to. But it is now reality. We are no longer a Premiership club, we don’t look or act like a Premiership club. We have not got the infrastructure to be a Premiership club despite the fine work being done by Bowyer and managing director Derek Shaw.
Next season will be no different. A transfer embargo looms. There is a possibility of a £50 million fine for breaching UEFA Financial Fair Play Rules.
Rovers, or the company that own them Venky’s of London Ltd are in horrendous debt and face possible administration. An accusation put to them many times by various parties and never confirmed or denied. Come to your own conclusion.
These are all things I warned you all about in March 2011. And was ridiculed by all and sundry. Even being banned by The Useless Lancashire Telegraph under instructions by Editor Kevin Young for being disruptive and controversial. Nobody listened. But they have certainly listened since.
The biggest mistake of recent times was sacking Sam Allardyce in December 2010. It has all been downhill since.
Do not make the same mistake by getting rid of Bowyer.
He has been at the club for over 8 years and knows it inside out. He has assembled a good back room staff in Terry McPhilips, Craig Short and Eric Kinder.
They are the way forward. And the key to Rovers survival.
THERE IS NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE.

WILL ROVERS SWOOP FOR SHERWOOD

The controversial Shebby Singh did not get many things right in his brief stay at Blackburn Rovers.
But one of his better ideas would appear to have been his attempts to appoint former Rovers captain Tim Sherwood (Pic above) as manager.
It is well documented that Singh made several attempts to prise Sherwood away from his coaching role at Spurs, following the much celebrated departure of the awful Steve (the man who could not win football matches) Kean. Singh spent a month pursuing Sherwood to no avail, before finally settling for another former Rovers Henning Berg. And what a disaster and expensive one at that it turned out to be.
Sherwood in the meantime has un expectantly become Spurs manager, and a good job he has made of it.
He is passionate, knowledgeable and can handle ‘Big Name Players’. His appraisals of modern football faults are refreshing along with his obvious hatred of losing.
Due to Sherwood’s efforts for Spurs, they have averaged 2 points per Premiership game. An average that would put them in 3rd position if it had been maintained from the start of the season. Spurs are also through to the Europa League quarter finals.
Despite Sherwood’s efforts, and Spurs could not have hoped for better, it is footballs worst kept secret that he will be replaced by Holland’s national team manager Louis Van Gall after the World Cup finals in Brazil.
Another English manager will bite the dust in the mistaken clamour for foreign managers. Some have even tipped Sherwood as a possible future England manager in years to come.
If Sherwood is jettisoned by Spurs would Rovers swoop to give him the opportunity of taking them back into the Premiership?
A task I feel well within his capabilities.
Sherwood is on record as saying the seven years he spent at Ewood were amongst the happiest in his life, he also fell in love with the area and the warm hearted people of Lancashire and took them and the scenic Ribble Valley firmly to his heart.
The stumbling block for cash strapped Rovers would be the finance needed to bring him in. Not to mention a possible transfer embargo looming that would scupper any attempts to appoint any manager of repute.
I have no doubt Tim Sherwood would most welcome by Rovers fans despite the popularity of Gary Bowyer. But I would stick with the excellent Gary Bowyer for a bit longer yet.
Note See article ‘Rovers must stand by Bowyer’
