Here we go! It is no longer possible to plan things in advance if you want to arrange anything around football. The goalposts are always being moved, pun intended. Skysports has a lot to answer for.

Look Up Blackburn says...

Looks like minnows Blackburn Rovers are having their fixture list messed about with yet again. That's the price you pay for being a small club in the second division that no-one is interested in. First it was Burnley's Premier League calendar that forced a change on Blackburn, and now fellow Championship side Derby's fixture with Forest means the scruffs of Blackburn will have to rearrange their regular Wednesday night self flagellation sessions. Poor old Rovers.

Absolutely, and as a result England have become pitiful. Wayne Rooney would not get in Germany's third team.

Just to let you know the fake story of Jordan Rhodes demanding more money to stay at Rovers was just that.

Situation hasn't changed as far as he's concerned. If a Premier league club comes along he will likely go (if they meet his wages etc).

Otherwise he's more than happy where he is and is looking forward to next season and believes we can do it this season and he very much wants to be part of the team that returns to the Premiership on the second anniversary of our historic win.

You are absolutely correct! Whilst I live along the South Coast but work in London (which makes it so much easier to go to Blackburn from the capital after work), I am fortunate that I am able to juggle my work life around the Rovers as there is flexibility; however, I do not wish my employers to think that I am messing them about, too when the fixtures change.

When I go for a mid-week game, I only take that day off and return to London on the overnight coach after the match and go straight into work the next day!
