Lowe set for Blackburn Rovers return

First published in Football

JASON Lowe is set to return to the Blackburn Rovers squad for tomorrow’s home game against QPR – but Corry Evans’ groin injury is still being assessed.

Lowe is back after missing the last five games with an ankle problem, but Evans limped off during Saturday’s home win against Ipswich and remains a doubt.

On Evans, Rovers boss Gary Bowyer said this afternoon: “We’ll give him every chance, we’ll see how he goes tomorrow morning.

“But Lowey’s fine, he trained on Friday and joined in yesterday so he’s back in the squad ready to go.”

That gives him selection problems, makes a pleasant change for once.

Lowe is pretty good at right back but Kean has done a great job for us, hate to say it but apart from the odd thrombie moment Williamson has played well in the last few games as well.

If Evans isn't fit the Dunny is the natural replacement and whisper it quietly I thought that Etuhu looked pretty sharp and as though he actually cared in his little cameo on Saturday.

We could at least give him a run out in the next few matches, put him in the shop window.

VENKYS IN TOWN TO MEET THE QUEEN
Blackburn Rovers owners Venky’s (Rao family pic above), are planning to make a rare trip to the town in the hope of meeting the queen.
The Indian based family are arranging a flying visit next week when her majesty is due to hand out Maundy money at Blackburn Cathedral. As owners of the town’s football club they are on the guest list.
Owner Mrs Anuradha Desai and her brothers, Ventkatesh and Balaji Rao would love to meet the royals – although there presence in the town has not exactly been welcome among Rovers fans on previous trips.
The Venky’s visit is being kept hush hush in case of a backlash. They want to make the long haul to see the Queen without any fuss.
Pity they could not take the time to visit and help the club over the past two troubled years.
Pity they cannot take the time to address the Rovers fans and explain their plans for the future.
Pity they cannot take the time to explain past mistakes and there are plenty.
Pity they cannot take the time to apologise for the sacking of Sam Allardyce in December 2010 and the disastrous appointment of advisor / agent Jerome Anderson who ran the club for a ruinous 2 years.
Pity they cannot take the time to apologise for the continued appointment of the useless Steve Kean, despite fans requests and fans demonstration’s to have him removed. Kean thanked Anuradha Desai’s loyalty by sueing her for 1.3 million for constructive dismissal. What a RAT – but she was warned.
Pity they cannot apologise for giving Kean, against all advice, the Premier League parachute payments to recruit new players in 2012. Totally wasted a part from the signing of Jordan Rhodes.
Pity they cannot explain why 12,000 paying fans have deserted the club.
No it’s a pity they have not the time to fly from India to address all of these things. Probably they just don’t care.
But meet the Queen – well that is a different matter !

STABILITY IS ESSENTIAL
Photo of g bowyer
Nobody has campaigned for Blackburn Rovers to appoint an experienced manager more than me.
Ever since the awful Steve (the man who cannot win football matches) Kean was appointed.
The club has chugged along since the 13th December 2010 (the fateful day Big Sam was sacked) without anyone of any repute in the most important position at a football club.
However I cannot help but be impressed with Gary Bower (pic above) and his coaching staff of Terry McPhilips, Craig Short and Eric Kinder.
Bowyer has built a side that can compete in the Championship, because we did not have one. We looked like slipping through the leagues. I fully expected to be playing Accrington Stanley on level terms in a couple of years, such was the mess Kean left us in. Bowyer has taken away those fears.
We have not got a team good enough to win promotion, far from it, but the seeds have been sewn.
Bowyer faces a mammoth task. He still needs to off load a lot of overpaid and over rated players accumulated by Kean and agent Jerome (the man ruined Blackburn Rovers) Anderson. None more so than Leon Best and Bradley Orr, who are on massive money that Rovers cannot afford. Reputed to be £40,000 each per week – Premier league wages.
Or in particular is a damning case and illustrates the skulduggery that went on during the disastrous Kean / Anderson reign.
The seeds were sewn for Orr’s massive contract on that fateful Monday evening when Wigan visited Ewood Park in April 2012. Wigan won 1/0 and finally sent Rovers down to the Championship with 31 points. The lowest points total ever accumulated by Blackburn Rovers.
Sky TV needed a Rovers representative to face the TV cameras in the aftermath of the match. Orr was delegated by Kean to be that man in a pre-arranged agreement anticipating the outcome of the evening.
Bradley Orr live on national TV gave Kean a glowing testimonial. Rovers demise was not “Kean’s fault stated Orr, it was all down to the players.” Orr continued “Steve Kean is the best manager / coach I have ever worked with and did not deserve the abuse and criticism from the fans”. Orr continued that Kean was the way forward and would return the Rovers back to the Premiership. The Rovers team in the dressing room could not believe what they were hearing and this interview caused a rift between Orr and rest of the team.
Mrs Anuradha (I like to be entertained) Desai and her useless brothers however fell for it ‘hook line and sinker’.
Kean kept his job, 12,500 fans deserted the club and Orr received a lucrative contract courtesy of Kean and Anderson.
You could not make it up!
This is an example of just some of the problems Bowyer has inherited. Bowyer must stay, he knows the club inside out and what has taken place over the last two years.
Steve Kean and Jerome Anderson ruined Blackburn Rovers. DO NOT FORGET THAT. Only Gary Bowyer can give us the stability needed for the future.
Reg.

The manager's obsession with this lad will be his downfall, he simply

Lowe's age I could run around a lot, but I wasn't good enough to play
for BRFC.

The same applies to Jason I'm afraid.

Reg is just stirring the crap again and the bitter and twisted PL only supporters hang on his every word because they are so desperate for the past to hang onto.

We all know what Venky's have done to the club, it's done, **** happens from time to time, nothing we can do about it, I can understand ex supporters like Bazzer and their open disgust but at the end of the day they are the only people who are suffering.

And Bazzer, before you start the abuse, if you don't care about Rovers why do you continue to post?

Because every Rovers fan who posts on here, irrespective of their stance cares about the club, some of us have been able to reconcile the past and continue to support them, others like yourself cannot do so.

There is no right or wrong in this, we are all supporters with differing opinions at the end of the day.

Some may be waiting for a return to the PL but it will make no difference to me unless the Venky's apologise.
Can you imagine the cars we'd all be driving waiting for an apology off the Germans, move on for goodness sake

I personally don't give a dam about Burnley now, we need to beat
QPR tomorrow night to give us more confidence and show that we can still beat the better teams.
If we can finish 7th or 8th in the league it will have been a good season compared to our last 3 year nightmare
Next season will be our time, I really believe that providing we still have
GB in charge, I don't care what anyone says he has been our Godsend!!
Onwards and Upwards!!
Who the fuxx are Burnley?

VENKYS IN TOWN TO MEET THE QUEEN Blackburn Rovers owners Venky’s (Rao family pic above), are planning to make a rare trip to the town in the hope of meeting the queen. The Indian based family are arranging a flying visit next week when her majesty is due to hand out Maundy money at Blackburn Cathedral. As owners of the town’s football club they are on the guest list. Owner Mrs Anuradha Desai and her brothers, Ventkatesh and Balaji Rao would love to meet the royals – although there presence in the town has not exactly been welcome among Rovers fans on previous trips. The Venky’s visit is being kept hush hush in case of a backlash. They want to make the long haul to see the Queen without any fuss. Pity they could not take the time to visit and help the club over the past two troubled years. Pity they cannot take the time to address the Rovers fans and explain their plans for the future. Pity they cannot take the time to explain past mistakes and there are plenty. Pity they cannot take the time to apologise for the sacking of Sam Allardyce in December 2010 and the disastrous appointment of advisor / agent Jerome Anderson who ran the club for a ruinous 2 years. Pity they cannot take the time to apologise for the continued appointment of the useless Steve Kean, despite fans requests and fans demonstration’s to have him removed. Kean thanked Anuradha Desai’s loyalty by sueing her for 1.3 million for constructive dismissal. What a RAT – but she was warned. Pity they cannot apologise for giving Kean, against all advice, the Premier League parachute payments to recruit new players in 2012. Totally wasted a part from the signing of Jordan Rhodes. Pity they cannot explain why 12,000 paying fans have deserted the club. No it’s a pity they have not the time to fly from India to address all of these things. Probably they just don’t care. But meet the Queen – well that is a different matter ! Reg. Footnote: Do not forget, try to attend Ewood this Tuesday for the vital clash with QPR. We can make a difference. www.regoftherovers.c o.uk
I am here from the South Coast for the Rovers and have been all season! But I could not give a toss about the Queen and the other royals!

Someone who works at Ewood asked me if I was going to be in town for the Queen's visit on Thursday and I said "No, I couldn't care less" but WILL be here for the Rovers on Good Friday!
