Full-time: Blackburn Rovers 0 Sheffield Wednesday 0

ROVERS were held to a goalless draw by Wednesday in their Boxing Day fixture at Ewood Park.

Simon Eastwood made a superb early save to keep out Atdhe Nuhiu’s effort before Jordan Rhodes saw a shot deflected into the side netting at the other end.

Rhodes was later denied by a save from Chris Kirkland before Eastwood kept out another header rom Nuhiu.

Rovers lost Chris Taylor to injury on the stroke of half time, with the wide man carried off in a neck brace, and replaced by substitute Josh King.

Ben Marshall fired a free kick just over the bar early in the second half before Rudy Gestede, making his first start for Rovers since joining on loan from Cardiff City, was thwarted by Kirkland.

A Stephen McPhail free kick was deflected just wide for the Owls before Rovers boss Gary Bowyer brought on Lee Williamson for Gestede, pushing Marshall into a more advanced position.

Tom Cairney sent a close-range shot wide for the home side but Rovers could not find a winner, although they did extend their unbeaten run to four matches.

DJ Campbell was an unused substitute, having been named on the bench for the first time since he was arrested earlier this month by police probing spot-fixing allegations.

The forward was bailed until April and has not been charged.

Rovers: Eastwood, Henley, Dann, Hanley, Spurr, Taylor (King 45), Lowe, Cairney (Rochina 81), Marshall, Gestede (Williamson 61), Rhodes. Subs not used: Kean, Kane, Kilgallon, Campbell.

Booked: Henley, Spurr.

Wednesday: Kirkland, Palmer, Roger Johnson, Glenn Loovens, Reda Johnson, Lee, Semedo, McPhail (McCabe 78), Helan, Maghoma (Johnson 75), Nuhiu (Mattock 84). Subs not used: Martinez, Llera, Olofinjana, Maguire.

Referee: David Coote.

Attendance: 18,539 (3,270 away).

Years ago, Mr Rover, was living in his 2 up 2 down, next to Mr Claret. Then he won the lottery. He could afford to move to a smarter part of town and regularly visited the big city where he lived the high life. Rubbing shoulders with well established millionaires at the casino he frequented.

He got a taste for expensive food and drink and also developed an expensive cocaine habit. Not of this mattered as he was sure that the money he’d won would never run out.

He would often drive past in his large limousine and scoff at Mr Claret, shouting that he’d never have to live like his former neighbour had to.

Mr. Claret, meanwhile, just got on with his lot. Only spending what he could afford.

Time passed and the high rolling lifestyle of the now bloated, Mr. Rover had taken its toll on his bank account, his body and mind.

His addiction had spiralled out of control. He lashed out at former friends, Mr Big Sam, Mr. Hendry, and Mr Hodgson even the media were all blamed for his self-inflicted financial demise.

Bitterly he was forced to return to his former home a bitter, twisted and lonely man. He felt like failure. He was right. He couldn’t help but notice as he peeped at his neighbour, through the tatty net curtains, that while he thought the midas touch that he briefly had would never leave him, Mr Claret had been quietly doing very well for himself.

He now frequently he see’s Mr Claret having to sell his cars a HotJayRod and an Austin. Screaming “ha ha what are you going to do without it now!?” Only to be dismayed by the performance of the new Vokes-wagen Mr. Claret has.

He still trys to make himself feel better about the “old days, when I had loadsamoney”
But Mr Claret is not impressed. He didn’t dismiss his friends through the lean times and is very proud of what he’s achieved as many people compliment him on his success.

This only enrages the embittered, longing for the past Mr. Rover has he constantly shouts over the backyard wall that all Mr. Clarets achievements will come to an end. “it wont last. It wont last” “the only way is down for you” “what if you fall ill!?”

While the future for Mr Claret looks rosy, doing what he’s always done. The New Year looks bleak for the Mr Rover as he’ll be forced to sell what few assets he has left, in his empty shell.

His brief flirtation with the high life has ruined Mr Rover. He now cuts a hollow, bitter, curmudgeonly, figure. He desperately clings on, in vein, to the hope that his neighbour Mr Claret will see misfortune.

Christmas in Mr Rovers house will be cold, empty and empty. And when, not spent reminiscing of Christmas’s past, endlessly twitching at the moth eaten net curtain hoping, hoping, hoping that his neighbours self-made achievements will end.

Mr Claret will have a fantastic Christmas, despite todays result!

Rhodes played today but did not score,
If he is not in the team any more
Will it matter? Not a jot.
There's plenty more to have a shot.
With him gone and not up front
There'll be space for others to score a lot.

0-0 at home against a relegation side is NOT ACCEPTABLE.
Once again Bowyer switches formation mid game, going more negative. Rochina is our only creative player when dunny isn't playing and yet Bowyer is totally frightened to play him.
Rochina will move on in jan and rightly so. It was a massive opportunity to get amongst the playoffs today and yet again Bowyer kills it for us.
Bowyer doesn't seem to realise we have a total lack of vision in midfield, in January we MUST sign someone of this ilk or get used to this league.
Do you think sheff wed are disappointed with a point? Job done for them yet Bowyer will imply a point was good enough. One of our players is worth more than their entire squad.

3 points vs Birmingham or Venkys will be justified in weilding the axe.

Have to play Dunny or Rochina behind Rhodes - devoid of creativity otherwise.

Frustrated yet again, surely this was the game to play Rochina from the start. We were crying out for some creativity with Dunn not starting. Come on Gary give the lad a chance !!

Bowyer your substitutions have to be the worst I have ever seen. Your 1st sub to remove Gestede and replace with Williamson was a joke. We need a goal!!! To top that sub off you then place our only creative player Cairney on the wing. CLUELESS!!! Finally with 10 minutes to go you bring Rochina on only to remove Cairney from the game. Why wasn't Lowe taken off and Cairney put back in the middle? Simply not good enough Bowyer and 2 points dropped against another poor side.

Because he has NO BALLS!!!
I'd rather loose trying to win than playing two defensive mids and one striker going for the draw.

So Sheffield Wednesday are a typical Championship team, well organised, hard working but not a lot of quality. rovers should have been good enough to win this but frustratingly, were not.

In an even first half we had 3 or 4 good chances, they had 1 or 2, and with more composed finishing we should have gone in ahead at half time. As it was we lost our most creative player, Taylor, who committed to a 50-50 and came off worst, I hope he's ok. King came on and again looked like a threat but sadly couldn't do enough to change the game.

In defence Hanley and Spurr looked solid and capable, Dann and particularly Henley less so, although with no obvious right midfielder ahead of him Henley was up against it all afternoon.

Frustration mounted when GB opted to replace Gestade with Williamson, he was looking at our midfield getting overrun when defending while the faithful were hoping we might push forward with Rochina as an attacking option. The game pretty much died at that point, and while Rochina was finally given 10 minutes, the blues struggled to get the ball to him because Cairney, who can pick a pass when required, was taken off when Marshall, who had worked himself into the ground, should have been the one to make way.

Have to say that if Taylor is out for any length of time we need Dunn back to give this team in injection of quality and creativity, there just wasn't enough to justify 3 points today.

Slow burner for sure but we've got to stick with Bowyer.
It was a draw that felt like a defeat,but as it stands we're 3 points outside the play-offs.
Who wouldn't have taken that a month ago?
Come on Rovers,we need a win on Sunday.

Abject stalemate today. Rovers failed to impress or take advantage another home fixtures. GB's subs were far too late and questionable, as was the starting 11. With the players we have in this squad, Rovers should be dispatching bottom 3 teams at home and knocking on the door of the play-off slots. But I fear we are where we are due to naive management and I only hope the improvement isn't being stifled negative tactics. For me, Gestede should have played up front with Rhodes behind him. As we saw today, he was totally ineffective in the supporting role.

Very very disapointing result today - if we're to have any chance of playoffs we have to win these home games EVERYTIME now as we're playing catchup with the teams above us.

Whilst GB has done a great job this season his negativity & substitutions does seem to hold us back at times - to substitute a striker for a 2nd holding midfielder when you're 0 0 at home does seem very bizarre - and its not the 1st time he's done it.

He's got to learn to be braver, yes occasionally it'll backfire but Rovers have to beat the sides in the lower half of the table - otherwise we are going to remain midtable mediocrity.

Also, we keep talking about the rest of the team scoring more goals - its time they stopped talking about it and actually started DOING it - unfortunately if JR dosent score then we seem to fire blanks and again you can't get promoted with just 1 player scoring all your goals.

If we lost him through injury or by Venkys selling him then this current Rovers side would plummet through this league.

GB was found out today, tactically woeful and we really should be beating bottom 3 at home comfortably. This squad should be destroying the likes of Yeovil and Wednesday but we were hanging on Saturday and today some very bizarre decisions by GB Nice guy but a coach not a manager. best we can hope for with GB is mid table championship and decline as the lukes of Rhodes move on to fulfill their potential. Give us an experienced manager nowr and we are only 3 points off the play offs and we will finish top 6 and the likes of Rhodes will fulfill their potential in a Rovers shirt in the premiership. Get Holloway in or make an enquiry at Cardiff and get this squad playing to its potential.

I still support GB and what he's trying to do, but for me he got it wrong today. He started with a 4-4-2 formation which obviously didn't work, it improved marginally when he swopped Marshall on to his more favoured left side. Gestede didn't look fit enough to play and contributed virtually nothing. We were outnumbered in midfield and couldn't get enough of the ball.

He brings Williamson on and moves his best player Cairney wide right. People will say Williamson is experienced, which means he is too slow and too weak to contribute anything going forward, he comes on and everything goes sideways or backwards.

He eventually brings Rochina on to replace Cairney when it's too late to make a difference and surely Cairney and Rochina playing together would have been our best chance of winning the game.

Tactics looked to be "hope for the best" at best, come on GB, a better plan for the Birmingham game please or it will be as dreary as today.

Too negative for me today. He played Gestede too deep with Rhodes still the lone strker up front for most part. Felt it should have been the other way round with Gestede up front with Rhodes feeding off him. The substitutions poor he brought Williamson on to marshall the midfield and it worked. but Gestede was brought off whilst he was having his best spell and can't understand why Cairney was brought off ? and Rochina is not getting enough game time. Big opportunity lost again.

Rhodes played today but did not score,
If he is not in the team any more
Will it matter? Not a jot.
There's plenty more to have a shot.
With him gone and not up front
There'll be space for others to score a lot.
That dodgy last line would be very risky in the wrong hands.

Poor second half, we allowed Wednesday to dominate midfield and therefore the game although I suspect we had the better chances throughout and with a bit of luck we could have done a Burnley and stolen the points.

But at least it's a point, just shows once again how difficult this league is.

Quite impressed with Gestede though, especially in the first half.

I must apologise to Gary Bowyer for criticizing him for not playing Gestede sooner. He was right not to. Gestede is ****.
GB brought him to the club like one or two other misfits and freebies - yes he can certainly pick them out cant he !!! And as for club support dont sit on the fence - quote 'puts certain other teams so called support to shame' - name them and give some really thought as to why - ****!!
Also Campbell on bench whilst still under police investigation - tells you a lot about the integrity of the club.

Angry typing away on his 'my little pony' lap top can only resort to childish immature comments instead of cutting to the chase in respect of his previous posts and yet another abysmal performance down at Ewood.

Gestede for Williamson defies logic against a poor wednesday side equally after finally learning where cairney is best utilised he reverts again. 2 incredibly poor decisions stability at the cost of mediocrity with a january window looming which will no doubt be wasted with GB jetting off to pune probably around Jan 28th to discuss who we can bring in after the wholesale of what little assets we have left.

Years ago, Mr Rover, was living in his 2 up 2 down, next to Mr Claret. Then he won the lottery. He could afford to move to a smarter part of town and regularly visited the big city where he lived the high life. Rubbing shoulders with well established millionaires at the casino he frequented.

He got a taste for expensive food and drink and also developed an expensive cocaine habit. Not of this mattered as he was sure that the money he’d won would never run out.

He would often drive past in his large limousine and scoff at Mr Claret, shouting that he’d never have to live like his former neighbour had to.

Mr. Claret, meanwhile, just got on with his lot. Only spending what he could afford.

Time passed and the high rolling lifestyle of the now bloated, Mr. Rover had taken its toll on his bank account, his body and mind.

His addiction had spiralled out of control. He lashed out at former friends, Mr Big Sam, Mr. Hendry, and Mr Hodgson even the media were all blamed for his self-inflicted financial demise.

Bitterly he was forced to return to his former home a bitter, twisted and lonely man. He felt like failure. He was right. He couldn’t help but notice as he peeped at his neighbour, through the tatty net curtains, that while he thought the midas touch that he briefly had would never leave him, Mr Claret had been quietly doing very well for himself.

He now frequently he see’s Mr Claret having to sell his cars a HotJayRod and an Austin. Screaming “ha ha what are you going to do without it now!?” Only to be dismayed by the performance of the new Vokes-wagen Mr. Claret has.

He still trys to make himself feel better about the “old days, when I had loadsamoney”
But Mr Claret is not impressed. He didn’t dismiss his friends through the lean times and is very proud of what he’s achieved as many people compliment him on his success.

This only enrages the embittered, longing for the past Mr. Rover has he constantly shouts over the backyard wall that all Mr. Clarets achievements will come to an end. “it wont last. It wont last” “the only way is down for you” “what if you fall ill!?”

While the future for Mr Claret looks rosy, doing what he’s always done. The New Year looks bleak for the Mr Rover as he’ll be forced to sell what few assets he has left, in his empty shell.

His brief flirtation with the high life has ruined Mr Rover. He now cuts a hollow, bitter, curmudgeonly, figure. He desperately clings on, in vein, to the hope that his neighbour Mr Claret will see misfortune.

Christmas in Mr Rovers house will be cold, empty and empty. And when, not spent reminiscing of Christmas’s past, endlessly twitching at the moth eaten net curtain hoping, hoping, hoping that his neighbours self-made achievements will end.

Mr Claret will have a fantastic Christmas, despite todays result!

Well Dr Stavtoss the hole in the Titanic obviously isn't that big as seen as we have only sank into the 2nd automatic promotion spot. It's more a slight leak that is in the process of being repaired.

Sheffield Wednesday played above themselves yesterday, no doubt motivated by their excellent support.
GB was unlucky to lose Taylor but King was a decent replacement. Gestede should have been replaced earlier but by Rochina, not Williamson.
Still, one point closer to the Dingles and the playoffs.

Ignoring the troll comments from DD et al as non attenders dont count, yes it was disappointing I know but lets all keep calm.
One defeat in 6 and unbeaten in 4, not so bad is it
Cudda shudda scored in the second half, how Cairney missed that chance I will never know. While I didnt think the subs were right either no manager gets it right all the time and anyone calling for GB to go needs to think a bit first. Plenty of managers around? Yes but all failures
Still a long way to go and we are making steady progress
And finally, Wednesday played a very good game from their point of view and were very determined, they could have nicked all 3 points, credit is due to them

Angry typing away on his 'my little pony' lap top can only resort to childish immature comments instead of cutting to the chase in respect of his previous posts and yet another abysmal performance down at Ewood. As I keep saying your brain cant control your big gob - makes you look a complete prat - roll on January1 and we will see if you can restrain yourself from such childish remarks.
OUT WITH THE LOT OF THEM
Angry making childish comments?
Best read back your own posts DD, pot-kettle and black spring to mind

Lack of goals all season....imagine if we lost Rhodes!
Desperately need a creative midfielder and a striker!
What a great point, can you imagine how good we'd be if we could just get our hands on a David Dunn or Ruben Rochina?

Agreed we can't win all the games but the point everybody is making are the substitutions and tactics. Assuming you was at the game today? Can you justify those subs? Bowyer cost us today.
No i wasn't at the game i live west midlands so its not easy for me to get there week in week out if i could i would its not that im saying the subs and tactics wasn't wrong because they was point i was making is we are unbeaten in 4 3 of them games have been clean sheets earlier in the season we couldn't buy a clean sheet.them clean sheets could be the difference when the season has ended fair enough the we havent scored many in 4 games but when haven't let in many either.

A draw was fair result. SFW played well although nothing up front. Probably in a false position. Rovers slow in build-ups and too many times giving the ball away. Midfield poor and upfront non existent, the few chances made must be taken. A win on Saturday is essential must! Hopefully Dunn will be back.

Fist time I've been to Ewood since we lost 1: nil to Chelsea in 2011. My observations are that we have a young side perhaps lacking a couple of quality players. One perhaps a centre forward to give Rhodes space and lay offs, plus a midfield maestro, the role Murphy hadn't the will nor legs to fulfil. I was surprised Dunn wasn't on the bench, Bowyer must be saving him for Birmingham?
I was surprised by the quiet home support, obviously the jury is still out. Bowyer should complain after the team raises its game a little, perhaps with an extra 4k of homes supporters (good deal on half season tickets available). Now is the big challenge for Bowyer , beat Birmingham and earn a point at Leeds i.e tail up before India. This will help with quest for quality in January. His other challenge will be the 'fair play' rules, although promotion must be the first priority. These challenges will prove if he's the
right man i.e. not just a good coach, which I think he is. I also think his job is safe to the end of the season. The board could always appoint a technical director like Newcastle did? A couple of thoughts about the team: Marshall is a good player but needs to cheer up, enjoy it more. Defence looks solid, Robinson's return will help make it stronger, Hanley could be even better if he improves his distribution of the ball. Looking forward to the second half of the season.
