Rovers boss pleased with away improvement

This Is Lancashire: Gary Bowyer Gary Bowyer

BLACKBURN Rovers boss Gary Bowyer had mixed emotions after the thrilling 3-3 draw at Watford.

While Bowyer praised the quality of the goals his side scored at Vicarage Road on Tuesday he was less enamoured by their defending.

But he saved his biggest criticism for referee Darren Sheldrake’s decision to hand the Hornets a controversial penalty when Rovers were leading and in control.

Troy Deeney scored the resulting spot-kick, awarded after an Ikechi Anya cross into the box hit the arm of Todd Kane, and Watford seemed set to snatch the points when Cristian Battocchio netted on the breakaway with two minutes of normal time to play.

But Rovers, who earlier had cancelled out Marco Cassetti’s soft opener to go in front through fine finishes from David Dunn and Craig Conway, equalised in injury-time thanks to a towering header from Rudy Gestede.

“The standard of our three goals was quality,” said Bowyer.

“But we gifted them their goals. The marking wasn’t good enough for the first one, the third one was a counter-attack after it was our throw-in, and with the penalty for the second one, I’m totally disappointed.

“The rule needs to get sorted once and for all about what is handball and what is not handball.

“Their lad is two yards away and he’s smashed it at Todd, what can he do?

“These things go for you or go against you and tonight we’ve been the victim of them going against us again and I think we’ve had a lot of that this season, which is disappointing.”

Gestede’s last-gasp leveller dashed Watford’s hopes of making it seven straight home victories while Dunn’s 50th league strike for Rovers was the first goal the Hornets had conceded at home in nearly 11 hours of football.

Bowyer added: “They’ve won their last six and not conceded so to come here and score three – and we could have scored more – we’ve got to be pleased how we performed.”

If you say so.

Bet you would love to swap managers, teams, league positions though wouldn't you?

Don't be so bloody stupid, I am a Rovers fan, you can't pick and choose in sport, you play with the cards you are dealt, our time will come just as yours has this season.

I am on record as saying that I think that Dyche is an excellent man manager, he has to be to achieve what he has with a small squad largely made up of journeyman players that he inherited.

The acid test will come when things start going pear shaped for him, then we will see what he is made of.

Bowyer on the other hand has only ever known pear shaped in his short career as a manager, I for one think he is doing ok so far, the stats above are testament to that.

I suppose that's fine if being 'ok' is the barometer for success.

Was it not Chris Taylor? I may be wrong though.Can you believe these Dingles, they are going up and yet they are still the first posters on nearly all our articles. We will have a field day next season when they are getting slaughtered every week and Dyche gets tapped up along with Danny Boy, anyway get a tenner on them breaking Derby's lowest PL points record.

I think the difference is when Rovers chance comes then there is still the infrastructure and a larger fan base to support the club. Burnleys supposed rise from the flames is a built on cards and will come crashing down, whether ths season or next.

Did you see Dyche on Late Kick-off last night. To me he definitley gave the impression of someone who had struck lucky. He's a young, relatively inexperienced manager and this rosey patch won't last forever. Wait until he's tested with a poor run of form. So no, I wouldn't suggest swapping managers.

Bowyer has built a foundation which could well mature into a fine team and squad. Support him and the club, if this season has been frustrating it's still had it's moments, some good, some bad but that what's supporting your club is all about. If/when it comes good it will feel all the sweeter. Rome wasn't (re)built in a day.

One problem Fake Villa, you seem to be conveniently forgetting about the FFP that is going to hammer your club hard in a few months time.

You simply will not be able to sustain paying players in excess of 20k per week based on your income, so you will either have to ask the likes of Rhodes, Hanley, Fatty Dunn, fatty Robinson etc to accept a large pay cut or you will need to sell them.

Do you really trust Bowyer to build you a promotion capable side under these restrictions next year?

Bitter much? Admit it, you would love to be in the Premier League again wouldn't you? Yes we may get hammered by the likes of Man City, Arsenal et al, but better that than getting beat by Bournemouth, Yeovil and Brentford like you gonks will be next term.

Here we go, can't help yourself can you?

You know what every Rovers players are earning to the nearest penny do you?

All the new signings are on £20k a week are they?

All the young players we have farmed out to other clubs to gain experience are on £20k a week?

Yes we have a few big earners left over from the bad old days who are causing problems, but lets see what happens with them first shall we?

If you say so.

Bet you would love to swap managers, teams, league positions though wouldn't you?
Don't be so bloody stupid, I am a Rovers fan, you can't pick and choose in sport, you play with the cards you are dealt, our time will come just as yours has this season.

I am on record as saying that I think that Dyche is an excellent man manager, he has to be to achieve what he has with a small squad largely made up of journeyman players that he inherited.

The acid test will come when things start going pear shaped for him, then we will see what he is made of.

Bowyer on the other hand has only ever known pear shaped in his short career as a manager, I for one think he is doing ok so far, the stats above are testament to that.
I think the difference is when Rovers chance comes then there is still the infrastructure and a larger fan base to support the club. Burnleys supposed rise from the flames is a built on cards and will come crashing down, whether ths season or next.

Did you see Dyche on Late Kick-off last night. To me he definitley gave the impression of someone who had struck lucky. He's a young, relatively inexperienced manager and this rosey patch won't last forever. Wait until he's tested with a poor run of form. So no, I wouldn't suggest swapping managers.

Bowyer has built a foundation which could well mature into a fine team and squad. Support him and the club, if this season has been frustrating it's still had it's moments, some good, some bad but that what's supporting your club is all about. If/when it comes good it will feel all the sweeter. Rome wasn't (re)built in a day.
One problem Fake Villa, you seem to be conveniently forgetting about the FFP that is going to hammer your club hard in a few months time.

You simply will not be able to sustain paying players in excess of 20k per week based on your income, so you will either have to ask the likes of Rhodes, Hanley, Fatty Dunn, fatty Robinson etc to accept a large pay cut or you will need to sell them.

Do you really trust Bowyer to build you a promotion capable side under these restrictions next year?
Will the real Fake Villa please stand up as I'm tired of this lot keep calling me something I'm not. Only ever been the one and only TurfMoorTom, commenting on East Lancs football.

Would I trust Bowyer? After what he's shipped out in a short space of time and the calibre of playing staff brought in? Only Marrow was a bit dodgy and the jury still out on Feeney but not much lost in either case. On the other hand:

Cairney, Kilgallon, Gestede, Conway, Evans, Marshall all top quality in skill and attitude. Varney and Taylor are great squad players. Keane brought in on emergency loan and excellent.

Why anyone knocks Bowyer is beyond me (unless they're closet Dingles). So would I trust him and wuld i give him a chance to continue the project he alone has created? **** right.

Unlike Bowyer, Dyche stil has to be tested through a rough patch which will most certainly come. Lets see wich **** crow then.

Forgot the one and only Tomy Spurr!! Not technicaly gifted but steady, dependable and great attitude. And attitude is something Bowyer has been trying to develop in the squad. If Dabo can be blooded towards the end of the season he may also be useful cover for Evans.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Just ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Bitter much? Admit it, you would love to be in the Premier League again wouldn't you? Yes we may get hammered by the likes of Man City, Arsenal et al, but better that than getting beat by Bournemouth, Yeovil and Brentford like you gonks will be next term.

Comedy gold.
Bitter? How do work that out Forest, look you deserve all the success you are having at the moment and i honestly congratulate you. Jealous? Bitter? no not at all, we totally deserve to be where we are, although maybe not us as supporters. However thanks to our owners,agents and all the rest of the hangers on we are where we are, the question you need to ask yourself is would you have ever, ever got above us otherwise. If you have anything about you then the honest answer would be no. Even given where we are it was game over at Ewood had Rhodes chance gone in and you all know it, anyway all the best and it would be great to both be in the PL like that last time although it was sad you had to leave after a single season. Cant help thinking it will be same again thats all.

Dear me, you no-dads are very bitter today aren't you.

I can understand why though...

We've taken away your 34 year comfort blanket by beating you at Ewood Park..

We've looked down on you all season with a gap that now stands at an incredible, record breaking 28 points..

We've surpassed you in every single statistic this season..

We've embarrassed you time and time again as your hopes for our failure never materialised and you were forced to continually move the goal posts in a desperate attempt to find something positive about your horrifically disappointing season and our incredible progress...

And now all you have left after begrudgingly accepting our superiority is that we might lose games in the Premier League while you are languishing a division below us, penniless and forced to sell your players to comply with FFP!!! What a shambles.

How the "mighty" have fallen. You are a desperate, jealous, laughingstock of a football club sitting in 11th place with no hope for the future.

Look up you clowns, that's Burnley FC way up there in 2nd place, a win away from top spot and a shot at the league title.

I'm so sorry my web-fingered friend, but you are wrong.

It will only apply to you because QPR have another season before sanctions are imposed on them, that's in the event that they don't achieve promotion this time around. There will be no sanctions applied to their spending in the 2012-13 season as there are to yours. I would expect QPR to be the dominant force next season if they are still in the Championship as they can afford one last major push before FFP applies to them. Its all or bust for them next year, just as it was for Blackburn Rovers this year.... oh dear.

Leicester City are already up, they were one of the other clubs at major risk.

Nottm Forest have made major losses too but they already have a squad capable of automatic promotion and with the right manager they will be right up there next season.

The clubs coming down from the Premier League are cushioned with the £60million parachute payments.

So it will only be yourselves who are burdened with a transfer embargo next season, there will no doubt be other clubs that suffer the same in subsequent seasons, but next season the FFP spotlight will be focused on you morons. But what do Venky's care.... any publicity is better than no publicity.

Don't be so bloody stupid, I am a Rovers fan, you can't pick and choose in sport, you play with the cards you are dealt, our time will come just as yours has this season.

I am on record as saying that I think that Dyche is an excellent man manager, he has to be to achieve what he has with a small squad largely made up of journeyman players that he inherited.

The acid test will come when things start going pear shaped for him, then we will see what he is made of.

Bowyer on the other hand has only ever known pear shaped in his short career as a manager, I for one think he is doing ok so far, the stats above are testament to that.
I think the difference is when Rovers chance comes then there is still the infrastructure and a larger fan base to support the club. Burnleys supposed rise from the flames is a built on cards and will come crashing down, whether ths season or next.

Did you see Dyche on Late Kick-off last night. To me he definitley gave the impression of someone who had struck lucky. He's a young, relatively inexperienced manager and this rosey patch won't last forever. Wait until he's tested with a poor run of form. So no, I wouldn't suggest swapping managers.

Bowyer has built a foundation which could well mature into a fine team and squad. Support him and the club, if this season has been frustrating it's still had it's moments, some good, some bad but that what's supporting your club is all about. If/when it comes good it will feel all the sweeter. Rome wasn't (re)built in a day.
One problem Fake Villa, you seem to be conveniently forgetting about the FFP that is going to hammer your club hard in a few months time.

You simply will not be able to sustain paying players in excess of 20k per week based on your income, so you will either have to ask the likes of Rhodes, Hanley, Fatty Dunn, fatty Robinson etc to accept a large pay cut or you will need to sell them.

Do you really trust Bowyer to build you a promotion capable side under these restrictions next year?
Here we go, can't help yourself can you?

You know what every Rovers players are earning to the nearest penny do you?

All the new signings are on £20k a week are they?

All the young players we have farmed out to other clubs to gain experience are on £20k a week?

Yes we have a few big earners left over from the bad old days who are causing problems, but lets see what happens with them first shall we?
the bad old days are still here with Kean No2 and his excuses!!!
Happy with a point, referee against us, standard of goals quality and on and on - a bloody joke and quickly becoming a Kean No2 with his comments!!
And yes more freebie/un wanted s on the way in!!!
OUT WITH THE COWBOYS AND INDIANS

Baldric, on FFP
It is not only applied to Rovers you know? So there will at least 4, possibly more clubs that are non compliant. There are several clubs with heavier debt burden than Rovers too.
Not saying it wont be a problem for us but so it will for many others
Bowyer has been preparing for this though so dont be too disappointed when we dont crash and burn eh?
You need another cunning plan, or a cunning stunt..ahh sorry you are one of those
Nothing stunning about this c*nt

Can't understand why Rhodes isn't doing all that well to say he has Gestede and Conway supporting him up front. The commentators say he only had one shot on goal at Watford.
20 goals in 37 games, he's not doing well ?

In 45 years, you must remember loads like Davies, Grabbi, Ostenstadt, Ward, Bell ? They would have been pretty happy with 20 goals, and so would those who had to watch them.
