Rovers celebrate Scott Dann's goal against Manchester City

THE rest of the country may have been feeling blue on Monday – but not Rovers supporters.

There was no chance of the Ewood Park faithful wallowing on what is believed to be the most miserable day of the year.

Not after their side’s mightily impressive performance against Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

And not after a promising start to 2014 which has also seen Rovers win at Elland Road for the first time in a decade and, with the minimum of fuss, wrap up two knockdown deals.

One player, Tom Cairney, is already an integral member of Gary Bowyer’s team and another, Rudy Gestede, showed against City what an asset he could become.

After the annus horribilis that was 2013 you cannot blame Rovers fans for feeling cautiously optimistic about what lies ahead, on the field at least.

Boss Bowyer, never one for going overboard, is sensible to suggest that this is not a time for getting carried away.

Especially when you consider just two weeks ago it felt like the whole world was going to cave in – and all because his side failed to break down a stubborn and well organised Sheffield Wednesday.

But, bar the freak first half against Birmingham City, what has happened since then has been encouraging.

Now the challenge facing the Rovers players is maintaining the standards they set against Leeds United on New Year’s Day and against Manchester City at the weekend. And that means beating Doncaster at Ewood on Saturday.

Donny, in complete contrast to Rovers, go into the match desperately short of confidence after an eight-game winless run.

Now it is difficult to predict the outcome of Championship matches from one week to the next.

But if Rovers are to hold genuine play-off aspirations – and, sitting just two points shy of the top six, they are certainly well placed for a promotion push – then this is a game they must win.

Given the way they played against City – who they frustrated and threatened in equal measure – and Leeds before that, there is absolutely no reason why they cannot claim the three points.

And if they do they will send their supporters bouncing into work on Monday with a smile on their faces once again.

Paul, all games are must wins! Donny are coming into the weekend in a relegation spot with an 8 game drought of wins, so I imagine they are going to be firing all cylinders to try and beat us, which is generally when you see a bottom of the league team beat teams much higher in the league... All the rovers players need to do is play their hearts out and hopefully get the win!!

It's now Thursday and they're still banging on about their scabby draw with City reserves last Saturday.

Desperate for anything to divert the attention away from the impending cricket score in the replay and subsequent destruction of the second half of the season.

Its 2014 and Blackburn Rovers are now a struggling mid-table laughingstock in the second tier of English football crippled by unmanageable debts on a steady course for lower league football, while Burnley FC are are a well run, well respected, proper football club sitting proudly in an automatic promotion spot with the best manager, goalkeeper, fullback, and strike partnership in the division.

And yet STILL the no-dads refuse to accept the magnitude of the mess their club is in. Losing £3 million every month in the Championship, you couldn't make it up.

First we were losing 2 mill a month and then according to the Dingles it was 2.5 mill..... Now it's 3 mil even after getting some off the books.

Unfortunately, through history, rovers have the uncanny and unwelcome habit of allowing teams to end their unfortunate sequences. On Saturday, there can be no reason and no excuse for anything less than three points and there will be no need for any. We have good, well motivated players and our luck is changing. Of course Doncaster will be desperate for a result but they will not get one.

Is there something wrong with you?

Did your dad drop you on your head when you were an infant.....oh thats right, as a " NO DAD" that event wouldn't have taken place.

Your financial debacle is a well established fact. The size of the deficit having to be plugged every month is also a fact so I think you'll find that nothing has been made up. You just don't want to face it.

I suggest you take a large piece of Haslet Haslets advice in relation to the gargantuan volume of coffee you need to consume.

Dingles always struggle with numbers, they have highest home attendance figures, massive away following numbers.
35 is a number they can't comprehend at all.
They're upping other numbers £2m, £2.5m, now £3m losses monthly for us.

Bottom line, you muppets, is that we don't CARE what you do. You could be where Man City are and we wouldn't care. We are only concerned with BRFC.

It'd be good to beat Donny on Saturday, true, but we have a young side, still learning, so if we don't.........
Who do Burnley play Saturday? Tbh, I really do not know and furthermore, I don't care!

I'm looking forward to our trip to the Etihad, where we're on a total hiding to nothing but am sure we can muster a better performance than WHU delivered last night. I'm also sure our young team will walk off the field proud that they did themselves and the shirt proud. Man City are a fabulous team and it can only benefit our players and their development, whatever the outcome. Looking forward to it.

Lastly, good to see Rovers and the fans getting good, positive media comments nationally although I do think they are happy to do so now that we are once more a 'small town club' that is unlikely to trouble the big boys again anytime soon. (They loved the cobbled streets, terraced rooftops etc etc)

Obviously Uncle Shadrack dropped you on your head mugster because whilst our financial debacle is a well established fact, your fellow bunny boiling Worzel Gummidge lookalike has decided it's now £3mill a month and more comically has suggested you have the best manager, fullback, keeper and are well respected!
Says who?
and this from the same group of hill pigs that claim Bonleh once virtually won the European Cup, yet in the same breath claim they don't live in the past! You're pure comedy you lot.

I just love how you find every negative connected with a club you despise, exaggerate it beyond belief, convince yourselves it's true and then assume it gives you some sort of victory.

open your big gob - let me pour coffee down it - cos you sir are a mug of extreme muggish proportions
Its 2014 and Blackburn Rovers are now a struggling mid-table laughingstock in the second tier of English football crippled by unmanageable debts on a steady course for lower league football, while Burnley FC are are a well run, well respected, proper football club sitting proudly in an automatic promotion spot with the best manager, goalkeeper, fullback, and strike partnership in the division.

And yet STILL the no-dads refuse to accept the magnitude of the mess their club is in. Losing £3 million every month in the Championship, you couldn't make it up.
You could make it up and you just have.
First we were losing 2 mill a month and then according to the Dingles it was 2.5 mill..... Now it's 3 mil even after getting some off the books.

They do make it up.

787872

Blackburn Rovers report £36.5m loss.

£36.5 million over 12 months = £3,041,667 (monthly loss)

And as one of you clowns rightly states.... you're still signing players.

Really, you could not make this nonsense up!

Dingles always struggle with numbers, they have highest home attendance figures, massive away following numbers.
35 is a number they can't comprehend at all.
They're upping other numbers £2m, £2.5m, now £3m losses monthly for us.

Bottom line, you muppets, is that we don't CARE what you do. You could be where Man City are and we wouldn't care. We are only concerned with BRFC.

It'd be good to beat Donny on Saturday, true, but we have a young side, still learning, so if we don't.........
Who do Burnley play Saturday? Tbh, I really do not know and furthermore, I don't care!

I'm looking forward to our trip to the Etihad, where we're on a total hiding to nothing but am sure we can muster a better performance than WHU delivered last night. I'm also sure our young team will walk off the field proud that they did themselves and the shirt proud. Man City are a fabulous team and it can only benefit our players and their development, whatever the outcome. Looking forward to it.

Lastly, good to see Rovers and the fans getting good, positive media comments nationally although I do think they are happy to do so now that we are once more a 'small town club' that is unlikely to trouble the big boys again anytime soon. (They loved the cobbled streets, terraced rooftops etc etc)
Unfortunately Mungo, going off your record against the minnows of this division, you are all too likely to have your trousers pulled down by Doncaster on Saturday, thus leaving your bruised and scabby backsides fully exposed for your trip to Manchester and a whupping of epic proportions by the cream of world football. A pasting could be the straw that breaks the camels back for Venky's after such a shoddy performance in the league, Bowyer could well be approaching his final days...

The big question is, who's next to be shaved and strapped into the Ewood Park ejector seat?

Could be Shaun Dice. After 12 months living in Burnley he must be getting towards the 'Eddie Howe' point where he needs to get out for the sake of his health and his family. He'd probably jump at the chance to work at a club with money to spend and proper facilities rather than a muddy field in Padiham. He'd have to shave that goatee off first though. Until he does he can't be taken seriously.
