FULL-TIME: Blackburn Rovers 0 Yeovil Town 0

This Is Lancashire: FULL-TIME: Blackburn Rovers 0 Yeovil Town 0 FULL-TIME: Blackburn Rovers 0 Yeovil Town 0

FOR the second game running Rovers missed the chance to move within two points off the play-off places as they were held to a disappointing goalless home draw by basement boys Yeovil.

The closest Gary Bowyer’s toothless side went to scoring was in the fourth minute when Jason Lowe fired a low 30-yard shot against the post.

After that Jordan Rhodes and captain Grant Hanley saw headed opportunities come and go.

But in truth Rovers, who remain 10th and four points off the top six going into their final three games of the campaign, could be playing now and still not have scored.

And to round off an afternoon to forget left-back Tommy Spurr came off with a groin injury which could rule him out of the Bank Holiday Monday trip to Birmingham City (3pm).

Rovers boss Bowyer said: “We looked a little bit tired, a little bit nervy and we just didn’t quite have enough in the final third to win the game.

“Our players know they’ve not hit the standards of the last couple of months but we go again.”

For a full report and reaction see tomorrow’s Lancashire Telegraph.

Riverside 7 says...

Very poor today and I thought that bottom placed Yeovil fully deserved a point.
We did not test their keeper until the 85th minute.
There was very little passion out there today and the players didn’t want to win 50/50 balls.

And guess what GB said after the game
We are unbeaten in 9 games.
If we can win our last 3 games then we can still get in the play-offs.
Rovers’ fans have got to see the big picture (in response to the booing at the final whistle).

It’s the best season this club has had in years.


After last season’s shambles just how much have we improved?
Well we have just 3 points more than last season with 3 games (1 home and 2 away) to play.

Let’s be honest, we are going nowhere under GB

Inconsistentcy from players and Manager alike. There is quality in the squad but we are lacking guile to change the tactics when its not working. Fans are frustrated we should have picked up enough points to be sure of a Play Off place but in all honesty we would get slaughtered in the Premiership so maybe it is a blessing in disguise. So ordinary today it was difficult to pick a MoM probably Killgannon but even he missed an opportunity to put pressure on the Yeovil goal by slowing up when through at the end.
The tactics seem to be if we dont concede we dont loose but we didnt test their keeper in 90 minutes of huffing and puffing. Indeed by the end Yeovil deserved a point if only for their workrate.

Questions will be asked about how the club is taken forward but if we are to be treated to that sort of performance next season who in their right mind would be renewing their season ticket. It was dire entertainment

we need better distribution from the keeper, we simply cant keep going for the easy option of lumping it up and conceding posession, sometimes gestede cant dominate in the air, robinson cant be a one-trick pony, you are allowed to distribute the ball using your hands, fizz it accurately to the wide men, or is he prepared to trust the full backs to start off attacks, rovers can sometimes be predictable, need to mix it up, when leicester came to ewood they were at their most dangerous when their keeper got the ball and the whole team would spring into action, make you vunerable to the counter-attack.

Captain Dreckley says...

Well GB certainly gave it to the players after throwing away a two goal lead to Wednesday and we saw the effect today. Every other result went for us yet we couldn't score against the bottom of the league at home. Let's face it, until Funny came on we were clueless so why the he'll wasn't he on earlier? GB has taken this club from being the laughing stock to a decent mid table championship club and brought back a significant degree of credibility. When he stepped into the breech no decent manager would have given us a second glance but the squad he has assembled have changed all that and every Rovers fan owes him a debt of gratitude. He is a fantastic guy but results don't lie and he has taken this club as far as his abilities allow. GB needs to step down at the end of the season and go back to coaching and let Rovers bring in a tactically astute and experienced manager or next season will be the same. Ihaven't felt as angry or frustrated since Steve Kean was in the dug out and actually wonder if Kean could have changed it today to create a win. GB has brought our club a he'll of a long way but I feel his journey as a manager is coming to an end. Coaches coach and managers manage and I can remember our greatest coach in recent history having the wisdom to turn down the managers post as he was a coach, that was Mr Tony Parkes. GB has been amazing in turning things around at Ewood and has given us a squad, with a little tweeking, that can go up automatically next term but he has proven repeatedly that he cannot get the best out if them.

A few days ago after posts I made following the trip to Sheffield, I was berated for suggesting that Bowyer simply does not have it. I am sure Riverside was one of them.
Looks like more and more people are coming round. As much as anyone I hate the managerial changes but the fact remains that they have all been poor from Kean through berg Appleton and now GB. If we are to progress surely now we will recruit someone with experience. No one would suggest that it's the golden bullet but it has got to be a better approach than the 4 useless coaches we have had.

Bowyer,s comments after the match on BBC suggesting the fans are in for "sheer entertainment and twists for the fans...in the remaining 3 x games".

He is beginning to sound like someone who is more concerned about his job and covering up the best he can for yet another missed opportunity for three points through lack of commitment & quality from the players and positiveness from Bowyer himself.

BIG questions coming up are :
1) will we see a the financial support from the Venky,s necessary to make next seasons squad a team with determination, quality and staying power to succeed.
2) does Bowyer have the insight and ability to see the weaknesses and to signing the right type of players to make this team a force to be reckoned and with Ewood Park a hell hole for all visiting teams.....a team to fear by all others.
Motto - team mission statement for next season to be hang on the dressing room door.....

Awful, and you can't say that Yeovil dragged us down to their level, we were much worse than that, they had more drive, initiative, skill, courage, in fact beat us hands down in everything but the score.

And they were crap.

if we had been playing an half decent side today we would have been hammered out of sight.

The display against Bournemouth was woeful, this was much worse, and the saddest thing about today is the other results went for us.

I never expected us to go up this season, far too many issues to sort out in one season, but I do expect to see some pride, effort and guile from the team I support.

That was sadly lacking today, as someone close by said about 10 minutes into the second half "They are playing as though they are being paid not to win".

GB hasn't got it. Quality Managers can change tactics to respond to what clearly isn't working. He never does that. After 5 mins today it was clear the long ball wasn't working but we persisted with it virtually from start to finish. Lowe and Williamson does not work and Williamson is rubbish anyway. Dunn should have been on from the start; at least he has some guile and can open defences up. Cairney should be in the middle of the park not out right. You have steadied the ship GB but that's about all. And I for one don't see Venkys going will make a jot of positive difference. They have stopped meddling and taking bad advice, have got rid of deadwood e.g. Shebby etc and without their financial support the club would be in a much worse state. GB hasn't what it takes to drive this club to the next level and should be replaced in the summer with someone who has been there, done it and got the t-shirt in the Championship e.g. Malky Mackay

And guess what GB said after the game
We are unbeaten in 9 games.
If we can win our last 3 games then we can still get in the play-offs.
Rovers’ fans have got to see the big picture (in response to the booing at the final whistle).

It’s the best season this club has had in years.


After last season’s shambles just how much have we improved?
Well we have just 3 points more than last season with 3 games (1 home and 2 away) to play.

Let’s be honest, we are going nowhere under GB

If we can win our last 3 games then we can still get in the play-offs. Rovers’ fans have got to see the big picture (in response to the booing at the final whistle). It’s the best season this club has had in years. After last season’s shambles just how much have we improved? Well we have just 3 points more than last season with 3 games (1 home and 2 away) to play. Let’s be honest, we are going nowhere under GB[/p][/quote]Absolutely spot on Biscay

Derby don't have a better squad of players, they just got a proper manager in at the right time and look at the run they have been on, yet QPR have better players and the media favourite Harry Redknapp and should've walked this league but messed it right up. There are no guarantees in this league but after steadying the ship, Bowyer doesn't inspire me and make me think he can take us to the next level

I can`t help but think that Blackburn Rovers are all smoke and mirrors. I now firmly believe that they are quite happy to stay in a comfortable upper mid table position. Many players know that they are not good enough for either the play offs or the Premier League and the management know that they would need to buy nearly a new team and given their present financial state that would not be possible. All honesty seems to have deserted football, clubs treat their supporters shabbily in this respect and Blackburn seem to be no different.

dont need to quote anyone on this one - the fact is the team and especially GB arent good enough - stupid comments from the idiot GB like CJC has a big part to play in the last four results and players comments like the last four games are must wins mean nothing if you dont get the results especially from a team rock bottom of the Championship.


We have a crap Manager and a crap team and the sooner people understand this the better. The Venky's let us have freeebies and the rest of the board put nothing into the club so what future does this hold other than more of the same - this club is an embarrassment comparing with what is used to be - a total disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!

GB has been amazing in turning things around at Ewood and has given us a squad, with a little tweeking, that can go up automatically next term but he has proven repeatedly that he cannot get the best out if them.
Only one thing to say and that's have we not been here before? Ray Harford, absolutely brilliant coach,top fella, one of the lads and without him we would not be where we are.

Reality check came a while ago for me. I'm now comfortable with the fact that we are a club who are on the same level playing field as our competitors. Gone are the days of Jack Walkers money so we'll have to do the same as every other club, buy cheap from lower leagues, unearth the odd gem from the Academy, sell for a hefty profit to balance the books. The odd good cup run, maybe play-offs or even going up, and then come straight back down, richer in both memories and financial gains of the Premier league. My son is 9, and has only got memories of the current farcical regime. All his mates are Man City and United fans but he trains in Blue and White halves and he loves the Rovers and I think he always will. He loves it when we win, and is disappointed when we lose (but nothing a kick about with his mates doesn't fix), and he doesn't like Burnley. It's that simple, take it or leave it, but he is here for the long haul and I'll be there with him.....

I am furious, angry, annoyed, and frustrated.

Team GB - for they are all implicated by association- are as a collective absolutely incompetent and clueless.

On a day where we had to win by employing pace on the flanks and creativity in midfield we pick our most creative midfield player on the right wing and two slow non creative laborious midfield players in central midfield.

For the first twenty five minutes we lumped the ball up to Gestede hoping that a fluke flick on would find Rhodes.

Not once did Robinson look to play short to full backs moving wide rolling the ball out to players to start attacks off. The tactics if that is what they were absolutely appalling.

Cairney and Evans should have started in midfield with King on the left and Conway on the right with Lowe starting at Right Back.

The changes that had to be made (due to injuries not Team GBs strategy or tactics) actually changed things for the better.

I personally would not entrust team Team GB to get us anywhere close to the playoffs next season let alone automatic promotion.

Bowyer has constantly failed to learn the lessons that have been given to him this year by numerous scenarios and more experienced opposition managers.

My final criticism for now is that to look at the rovers programme of player appearance’s we were still selecting teams / squads (for it is a 14 man game these days with hopefully the substitute’s making a real impact when they come on) with the likes of Givet Kane Eastwood Kean Olsson Taylor Marrow Judge Morris Songo’o Campbell and the likes until January 2014.

Here’s a management team that thought the likes of the above would be good enough to get us into the playoff’s / promoted - goodness knows what mess they will make over this pre season.

I personally don’t trust the future with them at the helm.

Does anyone think Blackburn would be in as lowly as position as this if Steve Kean was still the manager? I for one don't. I really believe they would have been in the play-off positions at least, where they were when he was unceremoniously dismissed, principally because of fan power. Talk about reaping what you sow? I hate to say it but Blackburn are destined to become a middle-of-the-table Championship side at best for a while to come unless some further changes are made at the helm.

Progress?

Team GB?

You are 5 points better off that last season.

If the 3 teams below you (Forest, Boro, and Watford) win their games in hand over you then you will drop into the bottom half of the Championship. Is 13th place really a sign of decent progress?

You are facing a transfer embargo next season. Do you really trust Bowyer to motivate the players that he currently has minus the likes of Rhodes, Cairney and Hanley who will likely be sold in the summer?

His tactical skills are poor.
His motivational skills are nil.
His social skills leave a lot to be desired.

What an utter shambles that was, I walked off Ewood today feeling more dejected than after Bournemouth and Burnley, and that is saying something.

Rovers under GB are consistently inconsistent, winning against the likes of QPR and Ipswich and drawing against the likes of Yeovil and Sheffield Wednesday. There is no sense of urgency to get a result even when all of the results are going our way. Not the form of a side that talk about the "play off chase".

To be fair, this season has very much been one of recovery and rehabilitation from the chaos of the previous two. I would give Bowyer until November , if we are showing signs of improvement, keep him. On the other hand if there are no signs of improvement then he must go.

I can't believe the grief that GB is getting. After last seasons farcical goings on, with all the managerial changes and lawsuits and compensation payouts, I think he's done an admiral job in steadying the ship, and giving us some much needed stability.

Any abuse should be directed towards the VERMIN in India, who have systematically dismantled this once proud club.

I can't believe that anyone actually thought that we could win promotion back to the PL. Those days are over. The VERMIN in India have seen to that. We will NEVER achieve anything whilst this scum own our club.

When this season started, I said that mid table mediocrity wouldn't be a disaster, and it's not. And it won't be next season, either. We have no god given right to be in the PL, and as long as we are in the hands of wrong 'uns, I'd settle for not dropping any further.

For those calling for a new manager, who would you want? Would any 'big name' want to work for the IDIOTIC Venky's?

For the realists amongst us, this season has been OK. It could have been a lot worse. Stability was the order of the day.

No stability or consistency here - its obvious from your comments about the venkys your happy to settle for second best or in our case third best with a youth team coach as manager and apart from a couple of players. A team of freebies - well youve got what you deserve!! Ni wonder the venkys dont turn up and watch - its obvious the crsp servef up id to embarrassing even for them!!

This might not be too far from the truth and our expectations have certainly been spectacularly lowered by the last 4 years. However, those who say there are no better managers out there who we can afford only need to look at our noisy neighbours, the greatest club side of all time ever to see that it is possible, instead of lazily trotting out Davies, curbishley, dowie etc
Let's be honest, Dyche doesn't seem like the sort of chap that would pit up with the Loons from Pune. His no-nonsense approach is what has git Burnley promoted - Madame Decides isn't going to let anybody put Dumb and Dumber's noses out of joint.

Here was a game that typified what we have seen too often at Ewood this season and so clearly illustrates what happens when two teams approach a 'must win' game with a 'must not lose' mentality.

GBs comments about stability, progress, unbeaten runs and clean sheets are all correct and valid for the first half of this season and were essential to lift us out of the Kean/Singh era, but most Rovers fans expected us to kick on and push forward after Christmas, particularly with the signing of Gestede and Conway appearing to signify a more attacking intent. Sadly it hasn't really been the case, not often enough or long enough.

The first half lacked any sense of urgency and was a totally uninspiring affair where two teams made a mockery of a perfect playing surface by trying to keep the ball off it. When they tried to pass the ball, or shoot, they couldn't, and therefore neither goalkeeper was troubled.

The game, the fans, the football gods were all desperate for the injection of some quality and pace and GB eventually got the right men on the pitch in Dunn and King but again it was woefully too late. A poor Yeovil side had gained enough belief from the first 70 minutes to see out the last 23. A few feeble attempts late on left the faithful totally dissillusioned because a game that could have delivered so much, delivered 1 more point and no entertainment.

The lack of drive, belief and creativity in the centre of this team, notably when Dunn isn't playing, is what has stopped us from achieving much much more in too many matches this season. Once again, Cairney can do this job, Williamson can't.

Looks like more and more people are coming round. As much as anyone I hate the managerial changes but the fact remains that they have all been poor from Kean through berg Appleton and now GB. If we are to progress surely now we will recruit someone with experience. No one would suggest that it's the golden bullet but it has got to be a better approach than the 4 useless coaches we have had.
You are wrong Dan.
I agreed with your comments after the Wednesday game.

I have also been saying for months now that GB is not the man to get us promoted.

Yes we are not setting our season alight but neither did Leicester a few years ago and look where they are now. A bit of patience and with a few decent additions in the summer and clear the ranks who is to say we can't do it next season.we need consistency not more changes,we have a young squad with potential, better than ageing squads we have had recently .

GB's post match quotes from BBC Sport website:

Personally, I find that statement after yesterday's showing actually an insult to the paying supporters. They'll simply vote with their feet.

I still have passion for Rovers.. I have been lucky and have watched them for 64 years. I have enjoyed our successes and endured a few lows.
These last few years have been the lowest.What really Ppppps me off is our pathetic manager who according to our match report in the Daily Mail thinks the point against Yeovil " might be a big point" and at the end of the match " We had a back four and a front six".
Their goalie didnt have a shot to save the whole match.
Unfortunately today I took my grand daughter to watch her first football match.Luckily for her she had taken her i-pod.
We will not get anywhere with a moron like Bowyer as Manager and if the idiots at Pune remain in charge we are in for a few more lean years.
I will be back next year God willing. Maybe at 74 I will get on the bench. It wont matter because Bowyer doesnt usually use his subs anyway.

Maybe at 74 I will get on the bench. It wont matter because Bowyer doesnt usually use his subs anyway. mushypeaman

when you consider the points we have dropped at crucial times when we really should have picked up all 3 it has happened on too many occasions and l question weather Gary Bowyer has lost the will to take us that one step further and if so can we attract the right man to mould this squad into a team capable of pushing for a promotion spot. Because at the minute it is not working,

All the posts on the game with Yeovil seem in varying ways to reflect the conclusions I have progressively formed. In my view neither the the Rovers Management nor many of the players were really serious about the play-offs or promotion. As I have said earlier - Its all been smoke and mirrors. The Rovers will, for many years to come,remain were they are or worse for the simple reason that they have no ambition, lack any sort of direction and an inept Board who have no money and suffer under an illusion that Blackburn people will keep putting up with performances that are sterile and bancrupt of ideas.
