4-0 up and pressing . Oh dear we have had another master substitution he has just brought the hat trick hero off Gestede that Birmingham can't handle with still loads of time to go. brought Varney on it doesn't make sense, now Birmingham has just scored. Why Gestede off as he also helps in defence. Now we are under the cosh. Don't be shocked if it ends 4-4. We will see.

Possibly so they are still available for the last 2 games and to see if the fringe players can do a job.

First of all, Well done Burnley, you've been a class act all season
So the dropped points against Sheffield wed and Yeovil games , are really to starting to hurt
A victory against charlton , and we would have done enough, more than likely
Now it's still out of our hands when we play Wigan
Will the real Blackburn Rovers please step forward

Reports of a transistor radio being thrown through a house window about 3:30 this afternoon, Police said they are not concerned as apparently it was thrown from the inside. Are you OK Dave ?

Nothing's changed for me I'm afraid, top bloke deserves a medal and a job for life. Sadly it can't be a number one as to be conceding yet again won't cut it next year, we have the spine of a great team, Hanley,Cairney,Geste
de/Rhodes. Yes I'm waiting for ok then who do we get and I understand that, however we need a bit of know how subs wise and also someone to kick arse when required. Not sure if "Gaz" would work with a new face, but it's what's needed and you can't tell me any different, we will batter teams next year with just a bit of direction. Venkys won't or shouldn't even be asked to make any decisions, anyone got John Williiams mobile number. Come on Rovers keep moving forward, well done GB lad but you know it's got to happen RTID

Well done to BFC. They have performed out of their skins this term and fully deserve their reward.

Firstly, congratulations to the Clarets. Well done.
Secondly, I think with have the "Jeykell & Hyde" team with GB. Having said that, let's analyse the first half at Brum, they, the home team were pathetic in the first half, even Yeovil would have put four or more past them. Rovers are in tune as a team, but step on the terf for the 2nd. Half they suddenly 'switch' to 'Hyde'! Then they are under pressure from a home team that has been given the 'hair dryer' lecture at half time, and it all back in defence. Can someone explain to me why Robinson has not been instructed to understand that the 'modern' football will travel further than previous makes of ball, and that he should only pass it out to the out-players to use and build up a steady attack, rather than hoofing it up to within a metre of the goal line preventing even the most athelitic of player getting half a chance to get the ball under control?
Hence the 2nd half developed in to 'all hand to the pumps' to defend what should have been a four goal cushion. Yet they still allowed Brum to score two goals!

You have to question the 'touch line' directions of GB, why did he allow the 'hoof-ball' technics of Robinson to give ball back to the opposition, rather than control the ball and remain in control?

Perhaps the answer is within the psychological thinking of GB in that the farther away the ball is from our goal, the less damage it will cause!!!!

The more I try to understand the Management of BRFC, the more I realise that they are not yet ready for return to the Premier League.

Putting aside the Pune Pluckers, they are way out of their depth in football, where would BRFC get any financial support if they decided to off load their debt??? Not many takers I would suggest. So perhaps it is best to leave it as is un til we become more attractive? Then maybe there will be some entity who may what to put money in the club.

Again, well done the Clarets, you have done your the team proud.

I hope that we get into the playoff situation, but cannot quite see it happening to be realistic.
