Simon Garner column: More of the same for Rovers please

WHAT do we want from Millwall tomorrow? More of the same please.

I thought Rovers played very well against Watford on Tuesday and should have won the game.

Yes some of their defending wasn’t great and yes they were naïve for Watford’s third goal, when they all went forward searching for a winner, but overall I was pleased by the performance.

How could you not be?

Watford are a good team who had won their previous six home games, not conceding a goal in that time.

But for long periods Rovers played them off the park. Our lads worked hard, worked Watford out, pressurised them, and didn’t let them get the ball down and play.

You can’t let Watford do that as they are good team.

So Rovers went hunting in packs – it wasn’t just one individual trying to get the ball back, they worked together as a team.

They saw that the goalkeeper and the defence were dodgy on crosses.

So credit to Rovers, they did the right thing and kept putting the ball in the box and Watford didn’t know how to handle it.

Rudy Gestede, in particular, caused them all sorts of problems.

When you’ve got someone with his size and strength it’s only right that you mix it up and go direct.

But Rovers also showed they can play.

David Dunn’s goal was brilliant and the way he beat three or four players to set up Craig Conway’s goal, when he could have just smacked it, was great.

So there are a lot of reasons to be confident going into tomorrow’s game.

I don’t think Blackburn should have anything to fear at Millwall.

Yes we know it will be a fierce atmosphere and yes their crowd will be getting on the Blackburn players’ back.

But the players will know that and should be ready for that.

They’ve just got to go about playing the way they did against Watford.

As if they show the same attitude as they did on Tuesday night they should win the game because they have got better players.

Going off Garners bummed up nonsense anyone would think Blackburn Rovers were challenging for automatic promotion, or at the very least in contention for a play-off spot, not languishing down in mid-table struggling to put two wins together.

A couple of draws and all is well once again in the no-dad camp, you really couldn't make it up.

I don't think Millwall will be as easy a game as simple Simon makes out, they are fighting for their lives down at the bottom and wont go quietly. I think a home win is on the cards by a couple of goals.

Perhaps then Garner, and the rest of the pond life, will accept that Blackburn Rovers are no longer anything other than a poor side in the second tier of English football destined for obscurity.

The simple fact is that we are now 8 posts (including mine) in on an interesting article by a Rovers hero and we have not one, single comment by a Rovers fan on said article.

Noticed you have scored more goals recently, has Bowyer finally worked out how to play 2 strikers?

Looks like it Mc. It seems to have taken till we are safe from the drop before he has been able to relax, the new manager that he is. But it just shows, and I was always confident that we could do better when taking the offensive approach. We've had some good wins when we've taken the game to our opponents, who ever they were, but played awfully at times when Bowyer gets his defensive head on. He seems to have relaxed though this last few games and it's shown in the results so hopefully it will continue from now on. We'll have to see. Congratulations by the way on your position, Dyche's done well.

Well said Harwoodstblue. Best way to anno such pople is to pretend to be a Dingle and go on their boards. Much more fun and effective, the can't help themselves.
And you are the worst troll of the lot!

Lost respect for Garner for his comments prior to the Derby, would expect an ex footballer and newspaper columnist to be more professional than to post his emotions about a rival club for all to see. Completely amateur as were the paper for publishing such drivel.

Noticed you have scored more goals recently, has Bowyer finally worked out how to play 2 strikers?
What more would you expect from an old stager like Garner? I seem to remember Andy Lockhead taking a similar stance prior to and after the game at Turf Moor, he made me smile and I certainly didn't lose any respect for him.

We expect players to give 100% and wear their hearts on their sleeves when they are on the pitch, why should they change and toe the PC line in the press? Personally I like them to stir up some emotion.

I like ex players behaving like fans.

As far as GB is concerned I think it also circles around the fact that he is finally getting the players in place that he wants and the core of next years team is taking shape at last.

Going off Garners bummed up nonsense anyone would think Blackburn Rovers were challenging for automatic promotion, or at the very least in contention for a play-off spot, not languishing down in mid-table struggling to put two wins together.

A couple of draws and all is well once again in the no-dad camp, you really couldn't make it up.

I don't think Millwall will be as easy a game as simple Simon makes out, they are fighting for their lives down at the bottom and wont go quietly. I think a home win is on the cards by a couple of goals.

Perhaps then Garner, and the rest of the pond life, will accept that Blackburn Rovers are no longer anything other than a poor side in the second tier of English football destined for obscurity.
Rovers biggest fan posting first again, r u sure your not WLYV in disguise? He was a tosser who used to be first on here, by all means come back on and give me some banter but you should be on your page if your a true Claret should you not? I mean we just ignore your repeated (boring) rants so go away and play with Fake Pensioner, he needs a friend.
He is Fake Pensioner and WLUV and Champagne Charlie, and, and.
That would answer a lot of questions Nic.
Aye, and all the rest of his identities too, in both colours, as it were
