A BRILLIANT late leveller denied Rovers a victory which would have moved them up to seventh and within one point off the play-off places.

Gary Bowyer’s side went in front in the 47th minute when, for the second match running at Ewood Park, Jordan Rhodes set up strike partner Rudy Gestede to head home.

But Derby got the goal their spirited fightback thoroughly deserved six minutes from time when super-sub Patrick Bamford curled in from 20 yards.

The result meant Rovers slipped to ninth going into Tuesday’s trip to basement boys Barnsley – although they are a point closer to sixth-placed Reading.

The fourth-placed Rams, who boast the best away record in the Championship, played the better football in an even, hard-fought first half.

But it was Rovers, who came into the game having lost just one of their last eight home matches, who created the better chances.

The best of which fell in the 11th minute when Ben Marshall stood a free kick up to the back post where Gestede rose magnificently.

His powerful header was arrowing toward the top corner until Lee Grant stretched out a fingertip to turn the ball over the bar.

It was the first and last serious save either goalkeeper had to make in the opening period.

But Grant should have been tested by Ben Marshall in the 13th minute.

The in-form winger, however, sent his 20-yard free kick harmlessly over the bar.

Marshall’s afternoon ended not long after.

To the concern of Rovers boss Bowyer and the home faithful Marshall had to be stretchered off after he hurt himself when fouling Jeff Hendrick, who lasted 14 minutes before also coming off injured.

Hendrick was replaced by Will Hughes and the highly rated 18-year-old midfielder was straight into the thick of the action.

But for all of the Rams’ neat approach play they never once tested the fit-again Paul Robinson as Jamie Ward, Hendrick and – on two occasions – Chris Martin blazed high or wide from distance.

At the other end Jason Lowe flicked an inswinging Tom Cairney marginally past the post before Marshall’s replacement Lee Williamson saw a goal-bound attempt deflected wide by Richard Keogh’s brave block.

But there was nothing Keogh could do to prevent Rovers from opening the scoring two minutes after the restart.

Matt Kilgallon – in for injured skipper Scott Dann, who has been linked with a move to Norwich City – won the ball before playing it through to the fully-fit Rhodes.

Rovers’ top-scorer – now recovered from a niggling foot injury – raced past Derby captain Keogh before flashing over a left-footed cross which the onrushing Gestede turned into the empty net.

The home team’s tails were up.

But the visitors responded strongly to going behind and after Hughes just failed to get a connection to an inviting Simon Dawkins cross, Chris Forsyth burst into the box and fired over with just Robinson to beat.

Robinson then breathed a huge sigh of relief when Hughes – given too much room in the area – scooped an inventive effort on to the bar.

But just when Rovers thought they had weathered the storm, substitute Bamford equalised.

Martin fed the on-loan Chelsea striker and he made no mistake from 20 yards with a superbly measured left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

Bamford – who came off the bench to earn the Rams victory over Brighton & Hove Albion one week earlier – then went close with his right foot after he beat Tommy Spurr.

But only after Rovers sub Todd Kane dragged wide when he could have easily gone down in the box for a big penalty appeal.

Right. Firstly, Derby are a very good side and on balance, a draw was a fair and a good result. That said, this was still two points dropped in a game that we could have won. Rovers played well and worked hard. Gestede was outstanding and even Lowe justified his place today. On a less positive note, Henley should not be picked ahead of Kane and was constantly out of position in the second half. Jason Rhodes showed why the anticipated queue of Premiership suitors never materialised though he did provide a neat cross for Gestede's goal. Tactically, GB lost it in the second half and although Derby's equaliser was a stunner, we had been holding the door open for them. The decision to replace Gestede with Kane could only have any logic on Planet Bowyer. His other enforced substitution replacing The injured Marshall with Boney M Williamson was also a missed opportunity with both Dunn and King available. Still, we are a point closer to the playoffs and I remain optimistic that we will get there.
The crowd of 13,867 was another shameful victory for the ex supporters and Premiership Glitterballs but hey, if it allows you to afford beans with your egg and chips tonight, good luck to you. Just don't come on here moaning about the result.

After they went behind Derby made several subsitutions and got on top of us for quite a long period and we did nothing about it only to bring off our most effective player all over the pitch including defence and replaced him with another full back. Another two points dropped but at least he went with two strikers this time. GB stated he had no money to buy players but could go into the loan market only.

Bowyer I'm afraid today you have again proved you are tactically inept! Why on earth you bring Williamson on is beyond nearly all the fans watching the game, the guy is useless and not surprisingly he again gave it away for their goal which had been coming. We are getting caught out as again you pray we hold onto a 1.0 lead rather than trying to kill a game off. David Dunn must be amazed that again he is left on the bench. Instead of clapping on the sidelines all game give your head a wobble and wake up as that was pretty dire to say the least. When will you ever learn.

King wasn't in the squad so couldn't replace marshall.My heart sank when williamson came on, and to replace gestede with kane was asking for trouble, and we got what bowyer deserved.

Why, why, why doesn't Bowyer use his subs???? The game was crying out for Dunn to come on or anybody for that matter with a creative side to his game and what do we get? A lightweight defender for a heavyweight player who played his heart out all over the pitch. This was one game that we really, really should have won. We hold what we've got is not a good idea against teams like Derby. Time for a change..........no not a plea for a new manager but a mantra that Bowyer needs to get into his head sometime before the last ten minutes of the match.

TAKEN FROM THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS -


"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

Right. Firstly, Derby are a very good side and on balance, a draw was a fair and a good result. That said, this was still two points dropped in a game that we could have won. Rovers played well and worked hard. Gestede was outstanding and even Lowe justified his place today. On a less positive note, Henley should not be picked ahead of Kane and was constantly out of position in the second half. Jason Rhodes showed why the anticipated queue of Premiership suitors never materialised though he did provide a neat cross for Gestede's goal. Tactically, GB lost it in the second half and although Derby's equaliser was a stunner, we had been holding the door open for them. The decision to replace Gestede with Kane could only have any logic on Planet Bowyer. His other enforced substitution replacing The injured Marshall with Boney M Williamson was also a missed opportunity with both Dunn and King available. Still, we are a point closer to the playoffs and I remain optimistic that we will get there.
The crowd of 13,867 was another shameful victory for the ex supporters and Premiership Glitterballs but hey, if it allows you to afford beans with your egg and chips tonight, good luck to you. Just don't come on here moaning about the result.
you really are a pratt - having a go at your own team now and coming round to the view that GB and some of the players just not good enough - and glitterballs or not everyone is entitled to a view if the take an interest in what is going on at Ewood and you dont have to attend the matches to be entitled to do so!!
I listened to full match commentary on Radio Lancs and Kevin Gallacher comments went straight to the point - first half like watching the paint dry and GB's defensive play/sub second half cost us all three points - leaving us with little chance of any play off position - simply not good enough!!
So there you have it and its not me saying told you so - we are not up to the mark and thousands of others like will continue to stay away but are still entitled to make comment so put that in your pipe and smoke it!!

Totally agree with your comments Tommy.
Boring football, little entertainment, 2 holding players who just invite the opposition to attack us – it is the same every week.
When will Bowyer realise that Lowe and Williamson together simply do not work.
I don’t know any Rovers fan who thinks that they do.
As I have said before – surely we can’t all be wrong.

When Lowe was suspended we won away at Leeds.
When we were 0 – 3 down to Birmingham, Williamson was replaced and we were a different side in the 2nd half.

After the injury to Marshall (and I am afraid that it looked like a break to me) why did GB not bring on Dunn.
If Dunny is fit enough for the bench surely he is fit enough to play 75 minutes.

Henley was exposed in the 2nd half as Cairney tired – but he is not a right winger and never will be. I understand the reasoning behind bringing on Kane, but we were just hanging on for a point at home.

I could not believe Robinson delaying the taking of a goal kick on 88 minutes.
We are playing at home, with 2 minutes plus 4 minutes injury time and he had already settled for a point.
Just where is our ambition?

Plus points – I thought Gestede had his best game for us today until he was sacrificed for Kane. I also thought that Kilgallon did a reasonable job at the back.

If Marshall’s injury is as serious as it looked, then he will not feature again this season – I therefore wonder whether GB will regret shipping out Rochina on loan.

It's getting like a cut n paste, GB gets his tactics wrong yet again. Before Christmas the number of times we were hanging on against to far poorer teams after going ahead. With better teams like Derby it just doesnt work. Get somebody in to support GB with his tactics because unfortunately he is in the same league as Keano. GB will keep Rovers up and a mid tabke finish but this squad is capable of so much more.

"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

TAKEN FROM THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS -


"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

The fourth-placed Rams, who boast the best away record in the Championship, played the better football in an even, hard-fought first half.

But it was Rovers, who came into the game having lost just one of their last eight home matches, who created the better chances.

Now stop me if I am wrong but most of us would have taken the above comments and a point before the game, given Derby's position and form. That said it was a draw that felt like a loss and I do feel we could have won it with different changes than GB made and I for once agree about Williamson today
I still feel that GB gets a lot more right than wrong, and he and the team will and I believe are, learning on the job as it were
I therefore agree that todays tactics may have been improved on, but we did not get beaten as our favourite troll would have liked either
Marshall's loss made a difference too, so we could have had a better outcome.
For me, it is keep calm and carry on..6 more points to play for this week! Remember , the Computer says yes.....

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

12676 if you remove the number of away fans.

But as you rightly point out, utterly disgraceful, especially with the cheapest tickets in the league.
But this would still comfortably outstrip Burnley's abjectly pathetic average attendances, except for when the might Rovers come to call.
@Woz 1974

In 1985/86 season for example, with you in Division 2, you averaged 5,800 at home. We averaged 3,300 2 divisions below you in the Division four surveil fight, the same season. I don't that you attendance that same season is much to crow about really, do you? 2 Divisions able us.

thats not henley's fault. Cairney should be in the middle,everybody but bowyer knows that. King wasn't in the squad so couldn't replace marshall.My heart sank when williamson came on, and to replace gestede with kane was asking for trouble, and we got what bowyer deserved. It seems to me the less creative you are the more chance of playing you've got. Boring manager boring football, I for one am getting fed up of watching the same crap week in week out. I want entertainment.
Totally agree with your comments Tommy.
Boring football, little entertainment, 2 holding players who just invite the opposition to attack us – it is the same every week.
When will Bowyer realise that Lowe and Williamson together simply do not work.
I don’t know any Rovers fan who thinks that they do.
As I have said before – surely we can’t all be wrong.

When Lowe was suspended we won away at Leeds.
When we were 0 – 3 down to Birmingham, Williamson was replaced and we were a different side in the 2nd half.

After the injury to Marshall (and I am afraid that it looked like a break to me) why did GB not bring on Dunn.
If Dunny is fit enough for the bench surely he is fit enough to play 75 minutes.

Henley was exposed in the 2nd half as Cairney tired – but he is not a right winger and never will be. I understand the reasoning behind bringing on Kane, but we were just hanging on for a point at home.

I could not believe Robinson delaying the taking of a goal kick on 88 minutes.
We are playing at home, with 2 minutes plus 4 minutes injury time and he had already settled for a point.
Just where is our ambition?

Plus points – I thought Gestede had his best game for us today until he was sacrificed for Kane. I also thought that Kilgallon did a reasonable job at the back.

If Marshall’s injury is as serious as it looked, then he will not feature again this season – I therefore wonder whether GB will regret shipping out Rochina on loan.
Couldn't agree more - Lowe doesn't play and we win, when he does play we all say how terrible the midfield is. Get Cairney in the Middle - pleeeeeeaaaassse!

It seems to me the less creative you are the more chance of playing you've got. Boring manager boring football, I for one am getting fed up of watching the same crap week in week out. I want entertainment.[/p][/quote]Totally agree with your comments Tommy. Boring football, little entertainment, 2 holding players who just invite the opposition to attack us – it is the same every week. When will Bowyer realise that Lowe and Williamson together simply do not work. I don’t know any Rovers fan who thinks that they do. As I have said before – surely we can’t all be wrong. When Lowe was suspended we won away at Leeds. When we were 0 – 3 down to Birmingham, Williamson was replaced and we were a different side in the 2nd half. After the injury to Marshall (and I am afraid that it looked like a break to me) why did GB not bring on Dunn. If Dunny is fit enough for the bench surely he is fit enough to play 75 minutes. Henley was exposed in the 2nd half as Cairney tired – but he is not a right winger and never will be. I understand the reasoning behind bringing on Kane, but we were just hanging on for a point at home. I could not believe Robinson delaying the taking of a goal kick on 88 minutes.

"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

12,676 no-dads on for a massive game that could have seen you edge closer to the playoffs, disgraceful. This proves you just cannot gives tickets away to watch the tripe served up at Ewood these days.

You are sliding down the table after taking a thumping off Forest and gifting Derby a point. This could be a big 2 points that you've dropped come the end of the season. With the teams around you having one and in some cases two games in hand on you it's not looking good. 9th place now and dropping like a stone.

On the plus side you did us a big favour by holding Derby to a draw. We thank you for your efforts.

Why not start comparing our gates in Bob Crompton's time ? Would make as much sense to most folks on here. My first time at Ewood ? 1943. So I've seen very large and very small crowds. It's been that way for every club so knock it off lads.

Be careful what you wish for. Just imagine losing your cup final in March at BolEwwod. And if the computer is right, loosing the semi to the Dingles. And we go up and you stay down. And we bank £120m and you bank an administration order. I'd trade that for straight-up promotion any day! Up the Clarets.
The only people that will see the money if u go up is your owners because the team wont see it but your not going up so it doesn't matter.
So if it doesn't matter why bloody write it?
Well you write crap on here that doesn't matter and that doesn't stop you.

Overall I still believe that GB is doing a good job, Rovers are much better than they were this time last year and he has managed to offload a lot of deadwood in the window, but it is frustrating to watch his unnecessarily negative tactics and it's very strange that he believes playing Cairney wide right is getting the most out of his best player.

It's clear now that Rovers aren't quite good enough at the moment to dominate games for 90 minutes, I haven't seen Evans play, perhaps he is good enough to take us to a higher level when fit. A combination of that lack of quality and the manager's negative tactics probably mean that we won't make the play offs this year, but I believe that this team and this manager will continue to improve and next year we will definitely make the play offs if not better. Stick with GB, he's a good long term solution for Rovers.

We started with two up front today, a holding midfielder in Lowe and Taylor playing further forward. Cairney again wrongly on the wing. Why when Marshall was taken off did we not A) put on Dunn and move Taylor out wide B) put on either Mahoney, Ollson or even Morris as a direct replacement. Williamson made sure we dropped back in the centre and gave Derby the initiative. Then when we had the lead but looked shaky we could have A) took Cairney off as he could hardly run towards the end which was allowing Derby to run freely at Henley. B) took Rhodes off and put an extra body in the middle letting Gestede hold the ball up front. I'm afraid GB is hopeless at using his substitutes, we should have had two fresh players on when we were one nil up but looking tired. Why can't GB see what needs changing this isn't the first time his changes have been wrong.

GB & Team GB – What an embarrassment

They are all culpable.

No surprise that GB / Team GB were out manoeuvred tactically again this time by McLaren.

I am assuming that GB does actually consult with his backroom staff.

Anyway

If hypothetically any Rovers fan had been given the manager’s job what would they have done?

1 – Looked at getting an outstanding and experienced back room staff in place. Including a quality scouting system.

2 – Observed and Analysed the squad of players at the club through training and matches.

3 – Made decisions as to what players would be kept and what players would be released.

4 – Get those that we did not rate out of the club by either selling them on or letting them go out on loan. I am sure there is a way in which clubs do this, released lists etc.

5 – Looked at constructing a list of players to replace or strengthen where we deemed to be necessary and appropriate.

Now please tell me why team GB / GB is perceived to have done anything exceptional.

He and Team GB have consistently lost us points this season so sorry I don't share the perception that he or they have done a great job, and lets not forget that GB has been at the club for years so has known full well what it is the side needs yet has failed totally in addressing the key issues that we all know exist.

Right. Firstly, Derby are a very good side and on balance, a draw was a fair and a good result. That said, this was still two points dropped in a game that we could have won. Rovers played well and worked hard. Gestede was outstanding and even Lowe justified his place today. On a less positive note, Henley should not be picked ahead of Kane and was constantly out of position in the second half. Jason Rhodes showed why the anticipated queue of Premiership suitors never materialised though he did provide a neat cross for Gestede's goal. Tactically, GB lost it in the second half and although Derby's equaliser was a stunner, we had been holding the door open for them. The decision to replace Gestede with Kane could only have any logic on Planet Bowyer. His other enforced substitution replacing The injured Marshall with Boney M Williamson was also a missed opportunity with both Dunn and King available. Still, we are a point closer to the playoffs and I remain optimistic that we will get there.
The crowd of 13,867 was another shameful victory for the ex supporters and Premiership Glitterballs but hey, if it allows you to afford beans with your egg and chips tonight, good luck to you. Just don't come on here moaning about the result.
12676 if you remove the number of away fans.

But as you rightly point out, utterly disgraceful, especially with the cheapest tickets in the league.
But this would still comfortably outstrip Burnley's abjectly pathetic average attendances, except for when the might Rovers come to call.
When they call without selling their ticket allocation you mean?
Wooden seats? Neanderthal Dingles? Cosy Blackburn pubs with nice people?. Why would we want to line your leaky pockets?

TAKEN FROM THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS -


"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

Oh dear, looks like you upset the big City club on your recent visit.

Love the line - "Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions."

Its just what we Clarets have been saying all along.


WALKER'S MONEY GONE.

WE'RE EAST LANCS NUMBER ONE
dip stick look at your own attendances over the last few years
you can not be lancshire number club you have to win something first
and i'm afraid a points gap in the championship doesn't cut it
and your club is in need of investment you need a jack walker
or you will have to keep selling your best players
you need to ask yourself not were the walker money went
but where was the burnley money spent
check your attendances the season you almost ceased to exist ....................

Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one? You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning. So what do you do? It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts. I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers. “Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse. It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two. So what of the Geordies? It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon. Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360. And Blackburn? Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six. Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights. Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions. The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high. So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money). But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first. The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

Frankly I was quite impressed with how a 9 man Blackburn Rovers got a draw against a decent Derby team on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon.

Derby started brightly and quickly realised that Rovers were playing without a right back, which allowed them to attack down their left at will. Somehow they couldn't turn this into goals.

The injury to Ben Marshall was a big moment for Rovers tactically, until then Rovers were managing to cope and starting to put together attacks of their own, but when Marshall couldn't return to the game he was replaced only by placing a traffic cone in the centre circle.

Rhodes and the excellent Gestede worked well up front, Tom Cairney, the buy of the season, worked himself into the ground playing both right and centre midfield, Taylor and Lowe both worked hard to compete with a very mobile Derby midfield. Our back three were stretched but did a manfull job and Robinson, who had a quite first half, livened up by his erratic kicking, had a good second half looking solid under a lot of pressure, certainly not at fault for the goal.

For some reason Will Hughes started from the bench yesterday, but he ran the game for Derby with a free reign to make things happen all over the pitch, had we simply found a way to attach our traffic cone to him we might have completely nullified their threat in the second half. This looked very obvious from the Riverside, obviously less clear from our bench.

When the LT do their points scoring I hope they have the honesty to give out a couple of 3's , please sort it out GB, you were so close to winning that game yesterday.

Frustrating, completely, end of our season, no, but the pressure grows to bring home the points from Barnsley and beat Blackpool.

Not had time to post before so here goes.

I haven't trawled through all the Burnley drivel but as someone else who actually went to the game said earlier my heart sank when GB brought Williamson on because up to then we were holding our own against a strong, talented Derby side who should have taken all three points purely on their second half showing.

On a positive note it was obvious that we had the beating of them in the air when we went forward in the first half, playing the two up front helped keep the pressure off the defence until the substitution but GB's misguided view that Williamson is the "man for all seasons" once again destroyed any chance we had of winning this game.

The total silence from the crowd as the substitution was announced spoke volumes, knowing the fickleness of some Rovers fans how long before that silence turns to jeers?

Everyone can see it apart from GB, two holding players in central midfield simply doesn't work, it invites our opponents to attack, and you simply don't invite a side like Derby to attack, it's virtual suicide.

That said I couldn't argue with GB taking Gestede off, he and Cairney were on their last legs having covered every blade of grass and the speed that Kane had to go past their full back should have been rewarded with a penalty had he not tried to stay on his feet, and if that had happened GB would have been a hero.

But a point against an excellent team is still a point, I am simply concerned that GB risks undermining all the good work he is doing in turning the club around because of his inflexibility on the pitch, and that would be a real shame.

On a lighter note there are two old guys who have appeared behind us in the Jack Walker Stand this year, I have nicknamed them Statler and Waldorf (From the Muppet Show), no insult intended to either party I assure you!

Anyway we get a running commentary on every game and everything to do with Rovers, they do know their football but the negativity, well it can be bloody irritating and I finally flipped when the Kane substitution was made, especially as GB also put Cairney in the middle at last, which I had been grumbling about all the second half.

Can't wait for Saturday, they look like they are up for a bit of good old fashioned banter.
On a lighter note there are two old guys who have appeared behind us in the Jack Walker Stand this year, I have nicknamed them Statler and Waldorf (From the Muppet Show), no insult intended to either party I assure you! Anyway we get a running commentary on every game and everything to do with Rovers, they do know their football but the negativity, well it can be bloody irritating and I finally flipped when the Kane substitution was made, especially as GB also put Cairney in the middle at last, which I had been grumbling about all the second half.

Without sounding like a smart arse the regular posters on here will know I have been saying for ages Williamson is not good enough. Can't run, offers absolutely nothing going forward and can't defend. Once again I would say I hope I never see him in a Rovers shirt ever again. If Dunn is fit enough to be on the be ch he is surely fit enough to play. If ever a game was teed up nicely for Dunny yesterday was it. Rant over!

I haven't trawled through all the Burnley drivel but as someone else who actually went to the game said earlier my heart sank when GB brought Williamson on because up to then we were holding our own against a strong, talented Derby side who should have taken all three points purely on their second half showing.

On a positive note it was obvious that we had the beating of them in the air when we went forward in the first half, playing the two up front helped keep the pressure off the defence until the substitution but GB's misguided view that Williamson is the "man for all seasons" once again destroyed any chance we had of winning this game.

The total silence from the crowd as the substitution was announced spoke volumes, knowing the fickleness of some Rovers fans how long before that silence turns to jeers?

Everyone can see it apart from GB, two holding players in central midfield simply doesn't work, it invites our opponents to attack, and you simply don't invite a side like Derby to attack, it's virtual suicide.

That said I couldn't argue with GB taking Gestede off, he and Cairney were on their last legs having covered every blade of grass and the speed that Kane had to go past their full back should have been rewarded with a penalty had he not tried to stay on his feet, and if that had happened GB would have been a hero.

But a point against an excellent team is still a point, I am simply concerned that GB risks undermining all the good work he is doing in turning the club around because of his inflexibility on the pitch, and that would be a real shame.
Nick, it's good to know that it's not just me, I was starting to think the game looked different from the Jack Walker side, after reading your comments I see it isn't so. ( but you didn't mention Henley, does he do more in front of GB than he does in front of me ?)

BTW good luck with the muppets behind you, if you enjoy bantering with miserable old gits I can recommend a seat in the Riverside, we've got hundreds of them !

Couldn't agree more, bringing Dunny on when Marshal was injured would have kept the pressure further up the pitch and away from from our area.

You have not been alone, and were it not for the notoriety of a certain rugby tackle I suspect most Rovers fans would have realised how ineffective he is.

Youngsters can develop so you have to be patient but this guy has peaked and sadly he' looks like a League 1 player struggling in this division.

TAKEN FROM THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS -


"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

I don't really blame the defence, I see it that when we play two defensive holding players we give our opponents 20 to 30 yards of what should be our midfield area for free to play in, putting unfair pressure on the defence and pushing them back, especially as Williamson really isn't up to it.

I am not criticising his effort, he give every game everything he has, he just isn't up to the basic required standard for this league in my honest opinion.

Hanley played ok in the first half, he was getting forward and put in a couple of decent crosses and coped ok with some good attacks down our right, but once Williamson came on he seemed to go in his shell.

Statler and Waldorf were saying the same it's just their reaction to the Kane substitution that set me off, just five minutes earlier I had been saying we needed to get Cairney or Gestede off as they had "blown", get some fresh legs on.

Whether Kane was the right change is irrelevant, GB had spotted the problem and did something about it, as I said if Kane had gone over as he should have done, because he was clipped by the full back as he flew past him, GB would have been an hero.

Personally I don't have a problem with Statler and Waldorf, like us they pay their hard earned and are fully entitled to their opinion, even when they are wrong!

12676 if you remove the number of away fans.

But as you rightly point out, utterly disgraceful, especially with the cheapest tickets in the league.
Well some of us want to be entertained, Going on ewood just puts you in a bad mood after they underachieve and Bowyer reels out the usual pathetic excuses,
You want to throw good money after bad that's up to you, when the club start showing some attention and involvement to the supporters and treating us with some respect maybe we will think about coming back.
You do what you want and the rest of u will do what we want.
The gates will continue going down until then as you are witnessing

TAKEN FROM THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS -


"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

Oh dear, looks like you upset the big City club on your recent visit.

Love the line - "Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions."

Its just what we Clarets have been saying all along.


WALKER'S MONEY GONE.

WE'RE EAST LANCS NUMBER ONE
You are obsessed sonny....how many rovers fans write essays like that?.......ZERO....



get over your bitterness sad man
..we mean more to you than you to us..its so easy to see isn't it....pat pat there there lonely dingle lmao @ u !!!
Essay writing!?

Cut n paste job from the MEN.

I just added the salt to rub into the wound!!!

Look up

CHIM CHIMANY
Wound?.....compared to what we have done to your hick club it is a mere scratch sonny...get some perspective and change your claret tinted bifocals
Hang on a minute, so everything we shout at them directly mirrors what you have been shouting at us since the early 90s? Ever heard the word HYPOCRIT? And for the record, I've never heard any rovers fans accuse anybody of 'ruining football'. That is left for the bitter and the jealous who are angry because their club can't AFFORD to buy success. Where have you been for the last 25 years? If you want to win the top league, you need a shed load of money.

So what you are saying is, if a mysterious benefactor came and offered to buy you success, you would say

"Sorry mate no, we're going to stick it out and try to win England's top league with no money and our cruddy facilities."

If you went back to 1990 and asked any rovers fan if they wanted two decades at the top level, winning trophies and competing in Europe before returning back to our original position, what do you think they'd say?

I think every city fan would snap your hand off at the same prospect aswell

It's nothing to do with karma, it's nothing to do with repaying ill gotten gains. You need to get a life, get off our page and get a job.

Sorry pressed the post button by accident.

GB good points -

He has turned around an absolute mess down at Ewood.

He has/is still getting rid of all the highly paid deadwood.

He has got the average age down brilliantly.

He has the players and most of the fans with him, again with the Venkys in charge this again is a master stroke.

GB bad points -

Playing to defensively at home and away, why, with the people we have in midfield like Lowe and Wiliamson, they are simply not good enough, these two bring pressure on our weak defence (just my opinion) and we all know sooner or later the opposition will score.

He struggles with substitutions, IMO he needs to be more positive.

Still behind the man but a tad worried some fans are starting to turn against him, only he can stop this, come on GB you can do it.

Derby County are a good side, playing high tempo and lots of good movement, who started very strongly (as plenty of opposition seem to do against us) and then we got into the game.
I thought they looked very vulnerable defensively when we attacked centrally.
Turning point perhaps was losing Marshall and being replaced by Williamson who increasingly is revealing his serious limitations at this level. Time for a serious re-think GB.
Two good goals, ours well worked, theirs a strike of PL quality.
I'd have settled for a point before the game but came away a tad disappointed but heh, progress is good and performances so much stronger under GB.
A draw a fair result and Derby will take some stopping in the hunt for promotion.

Barnsley for me on Tuesday.

He has/is still getting rid of all the highly paid deadwood.

He has got the average age down brilliantly.

He has the players and most of the fans with him, again with the Venkys in charge this again is a master stroke.

GB bad points -

Playing to defensively at home and away, why, with the people we have in midfield like Lowe and Wiliamson, they are simply not good enough, these two bring pressure on our weak defence (just my opinion) and we all know sooner or later the opposition will score.

He struggles with substitutions, IMO he needs to be more positive.

Still behind the man but a tad worried some fans are starting to turn against him, only he can stop this, come on GB you can do it.
Hi Lancs - Pensioner

For me it's a Team GB issue.

I am sure it's a collaborative decision with his support staff in terms of both picking the team and discussing how things are going during the game.

Yes ultimately GB takes the decision but I would have thought he would discuss all matters with his backroom staff who must be agreeing with everything he is saying and doing.

Hi Matt
I Agree with you in a way, but GB needs to answer some questions,

Where does the Buck stop?

If it fails who gets sacked?

Do I collectively listen then make MY decision?

Do I want to go down (not literally) with a fight?

This may surprise some, do we the fans and the Venkys let him continue the rebuild even if it means not going up this year, Leister have built there team over the last 2/3 years without all the turmoil we have had and only now they are reaping there rewards? Only time will tell.

The crowd of 13,867 was another shameful victory for the ex supporters and Premiership Glitterballs but hey, if it allows you to afford beans with your egg and chips tonight, good luck to you. Just don't come on here moaning about the result.
you really are a pratt - having a go at your own team now and coming round to the view that GB and some of the players just not good enough - and glitterballs or not everyone is entitled to a view if the take an interest in what is going on at Ewood and you dont have to attend the matches to be entitled to do so!!
I listened to full match commentary on Radio Lancs and Kevin Gallacher comments went straight to the point - first half like watching the paint dry and GB's defensive play/sub second half cost us all three points - leaving us with little chance of any play off position - simply not good enough!!
So there you have it and its not me saying told you so - we are not up to the mark and thousands of others like will continue to stay away but are still entitled to make comment so put that in your pipe and smoke it!!
OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS
Of course you can comment,but it isn't an informed comment if all you're doing is repeating someone else's view.
You will also find on Lancs that some summarisers tend to be more positive than others,Ben Burgess for example.
Best thing to do is go and watch so that you're comments are of worth.

TAKEN FROM THE MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS -


"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

Oh dear, looks like you upset the big City club on your recent visit.

Love the line - "Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions."

Its just what we Clarets have been saying all along.


WALKER'S MONEY GONE.

WE'RE EAST LANCS NUMBER ONE
Another classic howler from Bonleh number 1 selective memory specialist, who posts his latest tirade of bitterness, conveniently wiping from memory that Bonleh once averaged 2,500 whilst in the pits of Div4, lost 10,000 fans overnight after one humiliating season in the Prem & thinks Jack Walker died last week.

Nothing more than a pathetic & desperate bag of poison germtoran.

By the way, out of the 124 year derby history, Bonleh have had higher average attendance for 32 of those seasons.... you do the maths dingle slug

12676 if you remove the number of away fans.

But as you rightly point out, utterly disgraceful, especially with the cheapest tickets in the league.
Well some of us want to be entertained, Going on ewood just puts you in a bad mood after they underachieve and Bowyer reels out the usual pathetic excuses,
You want to throw good money after bad that's up to you, when the club start showing some attention and involvement to the supporters and treating us with some respect maybe we will think about coming back.
You do what you want and the rest of u will do what we want.
The gates will continue going down until then as you are witnessing
Spoken like a true ex supporter. Your comments are worth less than nothing. Like Little old David, who I refuse to respond to, you may feel the right to comment, but don't call yourself a supporter.
beer and wine is taking over at Mr Angry's - taken his bat and ball home with more and more posters of the same mind that GB is technically not up to the job and neither are some of signings!!!!!!!!!!

Dave, the intelligent folk on here can debate what went on in the game because they turn up and have minds of their own. Clearly you don't. You carry on being told what to think, the rest of us understand that your opinion is a rehash of someone else's and therefore brings nothing new to the discussion.

You crack on shouting your little mantras, your friend Knackersley needs someone to give a thumb to.
as usual a load of mumbo jumbo - take a break have a coffee and think again!!
OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS
It's natural for the less educated to be dismissive of concepts they don't understand,
However, now we know how your mind works, if enough people come on here and tell you that you are an idiot it will probably become your opinion !

I haven't trawled through all the Burnley drivel but as someone else who actually went to the game said earlier my heart sank when GB brought Williamson on because up to then we were holding our own against a strong, talented Derby side who should have taken all three points purely on their second half showing.

On a positive note it was obvious that we had the beating of them in the air when we went forward in the first half, playing the two up front helped keep the pressure off the defence until the substitution but GB's misguided view that Williamson is the "man for all seasons" once again destroyed any chance we had of winning this game.

The total silence from the crowd as the substitution was announced spoke volumes, knowing the fickleness of some Rovers fans how long before that silence turns to jeers?

Everyone can see it apart from GB, two holding players in central midfield simply doesn't work, it invites our opponents to attack, and you simply don't invite a side like Derby to attack, it's virtual suicide.

That said I couldn't argue with GB taking Gestede off, he and Cairney were on their last legs having covered every blade of grass and the speed that Kane had to go past their full back should have been rewarded with a penalty had he not tried to stay on his feet, and if that had happened GB would have been a hero.

But a point against an excellent team is still a point, I am simply concerned that GB risks undermining all the good work he is doing in turning the club around because of his inflexibility on the pitch, and that would be a real shame.
Nick, it's good to know that it's not just me, I was starting to think the game looked different from the Jack Walker side, after reading your comments I see it isn't so. ( but you didn't mention Henley, does he do more in front of GB than he does in front of me ?)

BTW good luck with the muppets behind you, if you enjoy bantering with miserable old gits I can recommend a seat in the Riverside, we've got hundreds of them !
I don't really blame the defence, I see it that when we play two defensive holding players we give our opponents 20 to 30 yards of what should be our midfield area for free to play in, putting unfair pressure on the defence and pushing them back, especially as Williamson really isn't up to it.

I am not criticising his effort, he give every game everything he has, he just isn't up to the basic required standard for this league in my honest opinion.

Hanley played ok in the first half, he was getting forward and put in a couple of decent crosses and coped ok with some good attacks down our right, but once Williamson came on he seemed to go in his shell.

Statler and Waldorf were saying the same it's just their reaction to the Kane substitution that set me off, just five minutes earlier I had been saying we needed to get Cairney or Gestede off as they had "blown", get some fresh legs on.

Whether Kane was the right change is irrelevant, GB had spotted the problem and did something about it, as I said if Kane had gone over as he should have done, because he was clipped by the full back as he flew past him, GB would have been an hero.

Personally I don't have a problem with Statler and Waldorf, like us they pay their hard earned and are fully entitled to their opinion, even when they are wrong!
You're correct that Cairney had blown up but with ten to go and leading one nil Gestede had to stay on. We could hardly clear the ball in in such a situation needed a player to hold the ball up. If the plan was to go one up front I'm afraid Rhodes had to be taken off. Personally I'd just have swapped Cairney for Kane. GB did spot the problem but he was at least 10-15 late in making a change. Derby had more fresh legs on the pitch than us and it cost us two points. GB seems like a decent man and has certainly steadied the club, his signings have been pretty good considering our budget and he is ridding the club of the excess. Unfortunately he is slow to react during the game. Surely everyone at the game yesterday would have made at least one substitution earlier and would not have made the same change as he did. Are 12000 of us wrong and GB is correct ? No, he made a mistake and as far as substitutions go it is not the first time.

you really are a pratt - having a go at your own team now and coming round to the view that GB and some of the players just not good enough - and glitterballs or not everyone is entitled to a view if the take an interest in what is going on at Ewood and you dont have to attend the matches to be entitled to do so!!
I listened to full match commentary on Radio Lancs and Kevin Gallacher comments went straight to the point - first half like watching the paint dry and GB's defensive play/sub second half cost us all three points - leaving us with little chance of any play off position - simply not good enough!!
So there you have it and its not me saying told you so - we are not up to the mark and thousands of others like will continue to stay away but are still entitled to make comment so put that in your pipe and smoke it!!

Of course you can comment,but it isn't an informed comment if all you're doing is repeating someone else's view.
You will also find on Lancs that some summarisers tend to be more positive than others,Ben Burgess for example.
Best thing to do is go and watch so that you're comments are of worth.
my views from listening to commentary, readings reports and posts of others is a much wider view/opinion than a biased view of one person watching a match so get your facts right!!!!

Here's my opinion just to counter Gally's.
We played like Brazil and should have had ten and they scored with their only shot on goal.

You are sliding down the table after taking a thumping off Forest and gifting Derby a point. This could be a big 2 points that you've dropped come the end of the season. With the teams around you having one and in some cases two games in hand on you it's not looking good. 9th place now and dropping like a stone.

On the plus side you did us a big favour by holding Derby to a draw. We thank you for your efforts.
and the funny thing is burnley could do rovers a massive favour
and being in ninth place in this league is not dropping like a stone

This proves you just cannot gives tickets away to watch the tripe served up at Ewood these days. You are sliding down the table after taking a thumping off Forest and gifting Derby a point. This could be a big 2 points that you've dropped come the end of the season. With the teams around you having one and in some cases two games in hand on you it's not looking good. 9th place now and dropping like a stone.

Angry From Accrington says...

I am really struggling to understand why so many hitherto intelligent individuals find themselves drawn into futile exchanges with that sad little old man who considers himself to be a danger to himself and others. Rational argument is impossible. He filters out balanced debate and hears only what he wants to hear and regurgitates these views as his own. I stopped replying to him some time ago as he is clearly fragile and emotionally unstable. In his strange little world, only successful teams, with great players and famous managers deserve support. He would probably support a league that consisted of only Man.U, Chelsea, City and Arsenal. Even then he would no doubt be calling for the owners to be OUTED for daring to be foreign.

"It's inevitable, I suppose. Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one?

You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning.

So what do you do?

It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts.

I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers.

“Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse.

It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two.

So what of the Geordies?

It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon.

Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360.

And Blackburn?

Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six.

Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights.

Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions.

The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money).

But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first.

Sorry pressed the post button by accident.

GB good points -

He has turned around an absolute mess down at Ewood.

He has/is still getting rid of all the highly paid deadwood.

He has got the average age down brilliantly.

He has the players and most of the fans with him, again with the Venkys in charge this again is a master stroke.

GB bad points -

Playing to defensively at home and away, why, with the people we have in midfield like Lowe and Wiliamson, they are simply not good enough, these two bring pressure on our weak defence (just my opinion) and we all know sooner or later the opposition will score.

He struggles with substitutions, IMO he needs to be more positive.

Still behind the man but a tad worried some fans are starting to turn against him, only he can stop this, come on GB you can do it.
Bowyer has not done anything over and above what any Tom, Dick or Harry off the streets of Shadsworth could have done in his time as manager.

To praise a man who has inherited a team reinforced with an £11 million strike partnership, and lead them to the heady heights of 9th, a ridiculous 22 points off the top, is just plain bizarre. His tactical decision making is ridiculed and the signing's are embarrassing to say the least, as is proven by the number of dud's who have been loaned out. Once again without the goals of one player who is shortly to depart you would be propping up the division.

I can understand how you no-dads have become used to mediocrity in recent seasons but to accept your current position as progress shows you up as mugs.

Another season in the Championship and further extreme cost cutting is highly likely. You will soon be longing for the days of Steve Kean and Shebby Singh. What you would give to be back in third place, like the Clarets are.

Poor old, mid-table, struggling Blackburn Rovers.

Better. Although we'll never get to find out ;)

Human nature dictates that in a row you always go for someone’s weak point. But what do you do when, say, you’re a fan of a team playing City and you cannot find one? You can’t start chanting about how useless they are, the keeper’s not dodgy (anymore) and the manager’s not getting sacked in the morning. So what do you do? It would appear that you come up with some nonsense that ignores the facts. I’ve heard it from supporters of several clubs, including Newcastle United and most recently Blackburn Rovers. “Where were you when you were ****?” they accuse. It is not a new chant and in many cases it is justified. Nobody (outside a commercial department) likes a glory hunter. But it is not justified when aimed at supporters of City – especially from those two. So what of the Geordies? It is the old cliche, isn’t it? Football mad up there. Go through Newcastle city centre and you’ll think you’ve gone back in time because everything is in black and white. Everybody marches to the beat of the Toon. Not in 1990-91 they didn’t. Then in the old Division Two, the Magpies ‘boasted’ an average of 16,834. Bit of a difference from this season’s 50,360. And Blackburn? Interestingly that 1990-91 campaign was the one which saw Jack Walker complete his takeover of Blackburn Rovers. The average that year at Ewood Park? 8,126. Eight thousand, one hundred and twenty six. Not to worry, five years later (Premier League title and broken transfer records under their belts) it had risen to 27,552. Now my maths ain’t great, but to me that’s more than three times as many thanks to an owner whose spending propelled the club to new heights. Rovers are now back where they were when Uncle Jack came along with his millions. The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high. So hurl your insults at City, it is football after all. Tell them they are ruining football (they’re not), or that they’re a **** club with money (as opposed to your **** club without money). But before you question the loyalty of their fans you might want to take a look at your own side first. The attendance for their last home match? 13,594. Less than half that Premier League high.

Sorry pressed the post button by accident.

GB good points -

He has turned around an absolute mess down at Ewood.

He has/is still getting rid of all the highly paid deadwood.

He has got the average age down brilliantly.

He has the players and most of the fans with him, again with the Venkys in charge this again is a master stroke.

GB bad points -

Playing to defensively at home and away, why, with the people we have in midfield like Lowe and Wiliamson, they are simply not good enough, these two bring pressure on our weak defence (just my opinion) and we all know sooner or later the opposition will score.

He struggles with substitutions, IMO he needs to be more positive.

Still behind the man but a tad worried some fans are starting to turn against him, only he can stop this, come on GB you can do it.
Bowyer has not done anything over and above what any Tom, Dick or Harry off the streets of Shadsworth could have done in his time as manager.

To praise a man who has inherited a team reinforced with an £11 million strike partnership, and lead them to the heady heights of 9th, a ridiculous 22 points off the top, is just plain bizarre. His tactical decision making is ridiculed and the signing's are embarrassing to say the least, as is proven by the number of dud's who have been loaned out. Once again without the goals of one player who is shortly to depart you would be propping up the division.

I can understand how you no-dads have become used to mediocrity in recent seasons but to accept your current position as progress shows you up as mugs.

Another season in the Championship and further extreme cost cutting is highly likely. You will soon be longing for the days of Steve Kean and Shebby Singh. What you would give to be back in third place, like the Clarets are.

Poor old, mid-table, struggling Blackburn Rovers.

9th and 3 points off the play offs is neither struggling or mid table.

For all you fans who think Bowyer is a good manager doing a good job - wake up the man is tactically inept, totally useless.
I agree with both your comments, GB is a good manager but he is tactically inept!
Sorry pressed the post button by accident.

GB good points -

He has turned around an absolute mess down at Ewood.

He has/is still getting rid of all the highly paid deadwood.

He has got the average age down brilliantly.

He has the players and most of the fans with him, again with the Venkys in charge this again is a master stroke.

GB bad points -

Playing to defensively at home and away, why, with the people we have in midfield like Lowe and Wiliamson, they are simply not good enough, these two bring pressure on our weak defence (just my opinion) and we all know sooner or later the opposition will score.

He struggles with substitutions, IMO he needs to be more positive.

Still behind the man but a tad worried some fans are starting to turn against him, only he can stop this, come on GB you can do it.
Bowyer has not done anything over and above what any Tom, Dick or Harry off the streets of Shadsworth could have done in his time as manager.

To praise a man who has inherited a team reinforced with an £11 million strike partnership, and lead them to the heady heights of 9th, a ridiculous 22 points off the top, is just plain bizarre. His tactical decision making is ridiculed and the signing's are embarrassing to say the least, as is proven by the number of dud's who have been loaned out. Once again without the goals of one player who is shortly to depart you would be propping up the division.

I can understand how you no-dads have become used to mediocrity in recent seasons but to accept your current position as progress shows you up as mugs.

Another season in the Championship and further extreme cost cutting is highly likely. You will soon be longing for the days of Steve Kean and Shebby Singh. What you would give to be back in third place, like the Clarets are.

Poor old, mid-table, struggling Blackburn Rovers.
ONCE more for the hard of understanding
9th and 3 points off the play offs is neither struggling or mid table.
WHEN not if we destroy your promotion ambitions in the play offs I will laugh and laugh till I p1 ss myself
Then I will give your home address to every Burnley fan I know so thaţ they can extract their revenge on you for jinxing their season with all your bad karma Rovers baiting
Basically, you are Donald' Baldric
Your life is about to get messy
Its either longing for the past or dreaming of a better future for you mugs isn't it? That's all you can do these days.

Why not spend a little time in the present for a change and accept what has become of your struggling tin-pot football club. You have been looking up at the Clarets for 2 years.

We can all say we're going to win in the play-off final can't we. The difference between our two clubs however is that we actually look like we'll make it that far. How bitter will you be if we do get promoted?

I'm pretty sure you will be p!ssing your pants, but I doubt it'll be through laughter.

Wind your neck in you jumped up no-mark. 9th in the Championship is a disgraceful position for a former Premier League champion, can you imagine the fans of Man Utd or Chelsea accepting such a fall?

You are in a financial mess and failure to achieve promotion for a second time would be the final nail in the coffin of BRFC.

Wrong again Baldric, it wont be a final nail...and we are going up so we will have your 200 million, then I will wet myself
The only no mark is you Mark, but you wont be around much longer will you?
Thanks for the comparison with Manure and Chelski, nice to see you acknowledging what a big club we were and still are!
The only tinpot outfit lives at the far eastern end of the M65 in a Wooden shack...
