Bowyer hails goalkeeper as Rovers pick up point at Middlesbrough

This Is Lancashire: Paul Robinson Paul Robinson

BLACKBURN Rovers manager Gary Bowyer was pleased to pick up a point at fellow play-off hopefuls Middlesbrough on Saturday.

But Bowyer admitted his side, who are now unbeaten in four Championship matches, did not play well enough to warrant anything more.

Goalkeeper Paul Robinson kept Rovers in the game with a string of saves while his opposite number Shay Given had only one stop of note to make.

Bowyer said: “When you come to a place like this and pick up a point when you’ve not played particularly well – especially first half – then you’ve got to be pleased.

“We struggled in the first half with and without the ball and we were indebted to our goalkeeper on numerous occasions.

“It was important that we got into half-time at 0-0, we had a good chat and made the adjustments we needed to make and I thought we were a lot better.

“Tom Cairney’s shot might have gone in but we did not do well enough in the attacking third.

“I wrote down that it wasn’t until 31 minutes before we did something with some intent.

“We’ve got to do better than that but the lads know that themselves.

“There was no need for any shouting or bawling because they’re an honest group and it’s probably one of the first times this season that we’ve not really worked a goalkeeper enough.”

Thanks to Robinson’s heroics Rovers – who are now just four points off the top six – made it 11 clean sheets for the Championship campaign.

And Bowyer said: “The character and the fight we showed to maintain the clean sheet is very pleasing.

“Teams could have buckled under that pressure but we didn’t.

“We stuck at it, we didn’t play particularly well – we know that – but we’re delighted with the character.”

A must win game with Reading away to come next and you clowns park the bus? You couldn't make it up!

Jordan Rhodes head has clearly gone and the goals have dried up, it's simply a matter of time before you descend to your rightful place in the bottom half.

In the meantime why not enjoy watching the fantastic progress being made by East Lancashire top team, unbeaten at home in a year, smashing all records, best strike force in the country, most exciting football in the division, and genuine automatic promotion candidates.

13 points.

An honest appraisal from bowyer. Can't play well every week but Middlesborough are tough at home. I call it a good point.
As someone said on an earlier thread........"That'
s Robinson's job," and he did it well. Isn't that what we pay him for?

after the game the points gap is down to four
and you say it Doesn't bode well if your keeper is your best player
obviously maths is not your strong point but being a burnley suporter we will overlook the fact that you cant add up
and the keepers job on a football field is to stop the opposing team from scoring and Paul Robinson did just that that's his job
that's what goalkeepers are supposed to do

Rovers experiencing the worst period in our recent history (lots of stay aways etc. due to ownership - that's their choice), I'm personally resigned to not getting into play offs, yet we still get better support. And before you spout on the size of B@rnley v Blackburn, both teams have similar catchment areas.

I would obviously have preferred a win but at the end of the day it's another point in the bag and as I said on an earlier thread, that's what Robbo is there for.

We are a young squad, lots of players who are still getting to know each other and we certainly aren't going to play well everytime.

Four points off the playoffs but there are still around 15 clubs chasing those four places and it doesn't really matter if you finish 3rd with 80 points or 6th with 65 points, as Palace showed last season teams can still come from nowhere.

A lot more to play for than the detractors and numpties think, talk is cheap until the final kick of the season.

Stay aways? PMSL at that old chestnut - please explain why Burnley have taken on average more fans away from home than Venkys FC this season? I thought your stayaways were just going to attend away matches so as not to put money in Venkys pockets? Evidently not - another myth busted.

It's worth remembering that per head of population Burnley attract the bigger crowd. We always have and we always will. And given the fact that your shower give season tickets away for next to nothing makes your argument even more futile. How are your away attendances looking this season? Wasn't the idea of the boycott to deprive Venky's of finances by attending away games, what happened to that?

Hmm - Ossy, Rishton and Great Harwood are 50/50 are they? Laughable, do you actually believe the guff you type?

As to why there was 11k on - Millwall brought 200, it was freezing and raining, but to be honest it matters not as I prefer to talk about our respective teams as opposed to the boringly repetitive attendance talk, but none of you seem to want to discuss the merits of our sides for some bizarre reason~??

Jealous of Blackburn? Not a bit of it, you were lucky to manage to find a guy who was prepared to basically give you a blank cheque to falsely inflate football transfer fees and wages in the early to mid 1990's, thus leading to the spiralling financial issues that are ruining our game now.

On the same lines, you can feel free to admit your own quite obvious jealousy about our well run club, with local directors who are supporters of the club, with a team with a tiny comparable budget, that are outperforming sides with budgets 5 times and more of our own on a regular basis, while fighting it out at the business end of the table watching Venkys FC bumbling around in mid-table.

Jordan Rhodes head has clearly gone and the goals have dried up, it's simply a matter of time before you descend to your rightful place in the bottom half.

In the meantime why not enjoy watching the fantastic progress being made by East Lancashire top team, unbeaten at home in a year, smashing all records, best strike force in the country, most exciting football in the division, and genuine automatic promotion candidates.

13 points.
Morning Mark - yes West Yorkshire's top team at the moment is B@rnley, watched by just over 11,000. Shameful and pitiful spring to mind - how would you describe it?

Rovers experiencing the worst period in our recent history (lots of stay aways etc. due to ownership - that's their choice), I'm personally resigned to not getting into play offs, yet we still get better support. And before you spout on the size of B@rnley v Blackburn, both teams have similar catchment areas.
Stay aways? PMSL at that old chestnut - please explain why Burnley have taken on average more fans away from home than Venkys FC this season? I thought your stayaways were just going to attend away matches so as not to put money in Venkys pockets? Evidently not - another myth busted.

Catchment areas? Add up Blackburn, Darwen, Ossy, Rishton, Whalley, Church, Haslingden, Great Harwood and then come back to me.
Remove Darwen and Blackburn and I think you'll find the other towns you mention are 50/50.

You will notice that I do concede there are stay aways (personally I don't agree with them and yes it is a lame excuse) and that I am resigned to stability this season. I can put forward a sensible debate, but all the Dingles who comment on the Rovers site are proven Trolls who cannot deliver a sensible debate. I ask myself why and each time I come up with the answer that you are consumed with jealousy and envy that we had an owner a few years back with great ambition and passion, enough so to deliver us the Holy Grail in English football and I have been lucky enough to witness this in my lifetime. Unfortunately for you, I cannot see this happening in your lifetime, which is maybe one of the reasons for your bitterness, envy and obsession.

Unfortunately you'd be wrong.

Burnley have per head of population always attracted a bigger following. You can manipulate the figures all you like but you all know the facts.

Your current attendance figures for a club that spent 20+ years in the Premier League, due to massive financial investment, are quite embarrassing really.

Compare with Leeds in their recent game against Huddersfield, 31,103, that says it all about your supporters. The majority of whom will now be back in their Man Utd shirts at weekend.

Stay aways? PMSL at that old chestnut - please explain why Burnley have taken on average more fans away from home than Venkys FC this season? I thought your stayaways were just going to attend away matches so as not to put money in Venkys pockets? Evidently not - another myth busted.

Catchment areas? Add up Blackburn, Darwen, Ossy, Rishton, Whalley, Church, Haslingden, Great Harwood and then come back to me.
Remove Darwen and Blackburn and I think you'll find the other towns you mention are 50/50.

You will notice that I do concede there are stay aways (personally I don't agree with them and yes it is a lame excuse) and that I am resigned to stability this season. I can put forward a sensible debate, but all the Dingles who comment on the Rovers site are proven Trolls who cannot deliver a sensible debate. I ask myself why and each time I come up with the answer that you are consumed with jealousy and envy that we had an owner a few years back with great ambition and passion, enough so to deliver us the Holy Grail in English football and I have been lucky enough to witness this in my lifetime. Unfortunately for you, I cannot see this happening in your lifetime, which is maybe one of the reasons for your bitterness, envy and obsession.

Still no answer on why only 11,000 at home when in an automatic promotion place?
Hmm - Ossy, Rishton and Great Harwood are 50/50 are they? Laughable, do you actually believe the guff you type?

As to why there was 11k on - Millwall brought 200, it was freezing and raining, but to be honest it matters not as I prefer to talk about our respective teams as opposed to the boringly repetitive attendance talk, but none of you seem to want to discuss the merits of our sides for some bizarre reason~??

Jealous of Blackburn? Not a bit of it, you were lucky to manage to find a guy who was prepared to basically give you a blank cheque to falsely inflate football transfer fees and wages in the early to mid 1990's, thus leading to the spiralling financial issues that are ruining our game now.

On the same lines, you can feel free to admit your own quite obvious jealousy about our well run club, with local directors who are supporters of the club, with a team with a tiny comparable budget, that are outperforming sides with budgets 5 times and more of our own on a regular basis, while fighting it out at the business end of the table watching Venkys FC bumbling around in mid-table.
i assume from your logic - there are no supporters of dingles in nelson and colne?
Of course there are, but going off hasslem hasslem's logic I guess the support is split 50/50 between Burnley and Blackburn?
you are a silly child.

i have no stats to back it up like you have no stats to back up your argument. however, i would say that pendle (89k according to pendle council website) is overwhelmingly dominated by burnley supporters, just like darwen (population circa 31k included in the 147k for BwD - latest census).

Adding Pendle to Burnley popn 73.5k gives circa 162k for the natural catchment for the hill monkeys.

None of us has reliable stats for hyndburn - but i am willing to concede that inevtably ozzy and rishton are dominated by rovers fans. But I pretty sure that great harwood and accrington are much closer to 50/50. Contrary to what you think i can guarantee that gt harwood is not a rovers ghetto. equally, i would guess that the likes of baxenden and altham have more affiliation with burnley than blackburn.

then there is the debate about the catchments of the ribble valley and rossendale valley. i am guessing there is more rovers fans in ribble valley (which also includes dingles and preston fans and the usual glory hunters of scumchester and liverpool) and more burnley supporters in rossendale valley.

its impossible to say - but dingles supporters always exclude pendle in this debate which makes the argument completely specious. if you want to exclude pendle then you may as well exclude darwen from the BwD numbers.

PMSL at that old chestnut - please explain why Burnley have taken on average more fans away from home than Venkys FC this season? I thought your stayaways were just going to attend away matches so as not to put money in Venkys pockets? Evidently not - another myth busted. Catchment areas? Add up Blackburn, Darwen, Ossy, Rishton, Whalley, Church, Haslingden, Great Harwood and then come back to me.[/p][/quote]Remove Darwen and Blackburn and I think you'll find the other towns you mention are 50/50. You will notice that I do concede there are stay aways (personally I don't agree with them and yes it is a lame excuse) and that I am resigned to stability this season. I can put forward a sensible debate, but all the Dingles who comment on the Rovers site are proven Trolls who cannot deliver a sensible debate. I ask myself why and each time I come up with the answer that you are consumed with jealousy and envy that we had an owner a few years back with great ambition and passion, enough so to deliver us the Holy Grail in English football and I have been lucky enough to witness this in my lifetime.

Burnley fans ought to be delighted when these idiots mention the crowds at Burney. It just shows how far they have fallen, how sad and jealous they have become and most of all because it’s the only thing they can say about Burnley. With crowds they get the achievement at Burnley is nothing short of phenomenal.

OK Back to school for you, I’m going to spell it out. Unbeaten at home this season – an achievement, unbeaten by any of the top six teams in the division – an achievement. How many top six teams have Rovers beaten???

You had us nailed on to go down this season after the loss of Charlie Austin.

Never in a million years did you expect us to be where we are.

We have been in the top 3 of the Championship since September 21st.

Before January Sean Dyche had spent £zero and had to accept the sale of his star striker.

As much as you may disagree, it is a tremendous achievement to be where we are competing with the likes of QPR and Leicester.

Morning David.

It's worth remembering that per head of population Burnley attract the bigger crowd. We always have and we always will. And given the fact that your shower give season tickets away for next to nothing makes your argument even more futile. How are your away attendances looking this season? Wasn't the idea of the boycott to deprive Venky's of finances by attending away games, what happened to that?

It's worth remembering that Remembering that Blackburn attract a bigger crowd than Manchester United, per head of the population. Does that make us better supported? Ofcourse it doesn't you six fingered mongrel. The only support that counts are the number of heads that go through the turnstiles on a Saturday afternoon.

As for the best strike force in the country...deep breath.....
