Blackburn Rovers Gary Bowyer rues missed Sheffield Wednesday chance

This Is Lancashire: Blackburn Rovers Gary Bowyer rues missed Sheffield Wednesday chance Blackburn Rovers Gary Bowyer rues missed Sheffield Wednesday chance

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer was left to rue missed chances after his side’s Boxing Day stalemate with Sheffield Wednesday.

While not at their best Rovers still created gilt-edged opportunities which top-scorer Jordan Rhodes, full debutant Rudy Gestede and substitute Josh King were unable to convert.

At the other end Simon Eastwood made the two most impressive saves of the match to keep out Atdhe Nuhiu headers from Stephen McPhail free kicks.

Bowyer said: “Their goalkeeper has worked very hard to keep Jordan out a couple of times, Josh King has shot straight at him, and Rudy probably should have done a little better when he was clean through.

“I’d be more concerned if we weren’t creating those chances.”

The draw extended Rovers’ unbeaten run to four matches and moved them up to 10th and within three points of the play-offs ahead of the evening games in the Championship.

Some of the strangest substitutions I've ever seen when a team is struggling to create goals, a striker for Williamson ? Then putting one of your few creative players on (Rochina) for the last 10 mins ? And that was only because the crowd told him to !! Sorry but the word CLUELESS comes to mind.

"If you can't score goals and win matches"...I could have sworn we just beat Millwall and Yeovil.

Give it a rest Dave - you're a miserable idiot who only pops his head out from under a rock when we don't win and the rest of us HATE you. Go away.

I'm afraid - absolute dross - no chance of play offs.
Mid table mediocrity. No leadership or vision on the pitch or from the dug out.
The only good thing is that there are 6 other Teams below Rovers that are no better.

2 points dropped without question, to a bottom 3 team at Ewood!

If this was at there ground maybe a draw wouldn't be as bad, but not to win at Ewood is unacceptable.....and if you cant understand the boos at the end then there is something wrong GB!

Yes the substitutions were strange, BUT at 442 we were creating nothing and.Wednesday were makinghalf. chances. (gedeste also looked as interested as Leon.best.first.half
) however, in my opinion at 4-5-1 we created much more. Had we.lost.1-0 some would.have said why did.we.change formations. Bowyer can't win! We have no divine right to roll teams over, and although a draw is a slight disappointment we have still made progress towards the playoffs. Looking at Sunday's fixtures....a win vs brum could.see a significant step made. Burnley will have a tough ride at.wigan and the.teams in.and around.us play each other. It's.not all doom and gloom. We didn't.lose apeople calling for.bowyers head are.sletons! Too many dangerous Dave's on.here tonight! Leave him and.his.victor meldrew accomplice to whinge.on about the price of heating this winter, and let the.sensible.ones amongst us enjoy the.festive football......! Ps Apologies for the full stop being.too close to the space bar on my phone!

If GB has a fault it's his knowledge of who (and when) to put on a substitute, being to careful to long will not get us into the play offs, even if the Dingles are trying there best to help us!!!

Maybe the recent good run has raised expectations too high? Which is ok, but Rovers fans expectations have got to be based on reality.....and to boo the team and manager is unreal and unjustified especially given all the circumstances at the club over the last couple of years.

To be where we are now today, tonight, is a miracle when you understand where we just came from...and to be mid table and still within striking distance of the play-offs is a great testement to GB and this squad. We go into the New Year a much better club than we were one year ago and we will get better still...stay within realistic expectations and enjoy the improvement!

I was critical of GB's selection and substitutions, but one thing you can never say is that this Rovers team lacks effort. How can you boo a team that always gives 100%?

It was a very very small minority that booed, but we've seen before what damage this small minority can do to the club.

Happy clapper my backside. And as for those who think Rochina is the be all and end all - he is most definitely not a team player. He is a liability at times. If you want fancy tricks, go to a circus.

What? Boo boys at Ewood Park? I had been led to believe that it was only the true supporters and owd fellas wi nowt better to do that went down these days? Aren't all the plastics sat in their armchairs at home waiting for the bad news at 5, so they can say "I told you so"

I went today and it was total sh8. MoM Marshall tells you everything you need to know about the quality on show. Rhodes doesn't contribute much when he's not scoring and he isn't likely to with the laziest player since Dwight York waiting for HIS knockdowns in a bizarre role reversal.

Substitutions have already been mentioned, but GB should get real if he can't understand the boos from a dwindling fanbase: more defensive than Allardyce with even less going forward against a bottom-feeding side like Wednesday. There is no way GB will fulfil Venkys stated aim of getting us promoted with performances lime this.

From my angle it looked like a set of studs in the Ribs, nasty but not cause for a neck brace, unless that was to protect him while being wheeled off on that Victorian market barrow. FFS talk about adding insult to injury !

Hi GS, yes I thought the same as you but one of the guys on the bus with a different view said he went down hard on his head and neck
Hopefully no news is good news in this case? Maybe not as bad as first thought?
I agree about the veg barrow though, no doubt the latest health n safety lunacy, you cant go carrying people on stretchers!
Think of all the RSI injuries that could cause!

Gary ,
If I could give you any guaranteed good advice I would , but in sports the greatest experts are wrong nearly half the time.

Remember the players that will get you the sack are the ones that play good on the "this is your last chance games " and they keep playing, you cannot have players that play good one good game out of 3/4games.
GB , YOU REPRESENT THE club and the SUPPORTERS NOT THE PLAYERS,They EITHER DO THE BUSINESS FOR YOU OR THEY DON'T ,be realistic .

I played against Fergie when he was with the DRUM and he will tell you what football meant to us in Glasgow in they days , they were hundreds of guys , good guys ,in fact great guys like Fergie that knew how to win football matches.
If Fergie has one thing it is a desire to win ,irregardless of talent , Fergie knows how to win even with lesser players.

The siege mentality , the thought with each and every Rovers player that you are defending your homeland and the opposition are invaders,

We're not far away , but we need to learn to win , we need to learn to win , that means players on the park fighting harder and tougher till the last second turn draws into 1-0

90% of what GB has done is great, he's brought in some decent players, (some dross too) got a good work ethic and good morale in the dressing room so fair play for that. What continues to bemuse me is that he doesn't know what his best side is or what formation to use. We created a hatfull of chances against Yeovil playing Dunny behind Rhodes, so why when we turn up at home does he change to 442? It doesn't suit us and is no use to Jordan. Gestede is the new DJ and by that i don't mean a toerag, just that he'll never score for us! GB got it so wrong and everyone at Ewood knew it. Should've been a straight swap Rochina for Dunny. Why give yourself a headache, play Rochina and nobody boo's. Whilst I'm at it please will someone tell him to stop playing King down the left, he has to play on the right! He cant finish his dinner so his role has to be to get supply into the box, i've never seen him use his left peg so left wing aint an option. Just as right wing isn't the place for Cairney. Christ actually writing it makes it worse, i wouldn't mind if that was the best we can cobble together but it isn't. I'm not a booer and i don't condone it, i just hope the players aren't p1ssed off and realise it was more to do with the manager getting it so badly wrong and not putting it right when he had the chance. Sermon here endeth!

There are issues which have not been addressed and I'd like to know why. How long have we been saying Rhodes needs a competent partner up front?
How long have we been saying we need a midfield general to take over from Dunn? We can't keep relying on him given his age and injury record. This has been going on for months and needs sorting out if we are going to make progress. If it's obvious to the fans what is needed, why isn't it obvious to the management / board / owners?
I'm not having a go at Bowyer as it'll take more time to turn things round but
I can't see us making progress until these issues are faced and something done about it.

We are right to expect to win and we have the right to feel disappointed we don't. We don't, however, have the right to win and probably more often than not, we won't. GB is still learning his trade but he needs to learn fast.
Clearly he has been let down buy the likes of Best, Campbell, Etuhu and others so he must focus on those players he can rely on and mould them. The absolute priority is a second striker alongside Rhodes. For me, that player is Rochina. The defence is improving and whilst I prefer Kane to Henley I understand the need to not be over reliant on loan players. Dann is still suspect but Hanley is growing to compensate. We need to play King regularly. He is our best wide player. Cairney is also a must but GB then has the challenge of selecting his least mediocre midfielders.
I can understand, but not condone the booing. Proper supporters are not perfect but certainly preferential to the ones who can only whinge from a distance and shout insults in BLOCK CAPITALS.
Tomorrow will be another tough one but we can do our part by getting and staying behind the team.

I can understand, but not condone the booing. Proper supporters are not perfect but certainly preferential to the ones who can only whinge from a distance and shout insults in BLOCK CAPITALS.
Tomorrow will be another tough one but we can do our part by getting and staying behind the team.
Excellent post there Angry, ignore Eckersley and his little sidekick Dave, they are busy planning their New Years Eve party. They just figured out they don't need so many chairs because their only other friends are Speedie, who always refuses to turn up and WLUV's multiple accounts.

Thanks for the advice but you know how hard it is not to scratch those annoying little itches. I am clearly allergic to banality.
