    • Tony Mowbray incensed with referee after goalless draw
    • Valérien Ismaël furious at the end of West Brom 1-1 Cardiff

    Tony Mowbray described the officiating at Ewood Park as “embarrassing” after Blackburn’s six-match winning run came to an end following a goalless draw with Huddersfield. Nullified by the visitors’ defensive solidarity, Blackburn were restricted to few chances, with Reda Khadra’s strike against the frame of the goal the closest they came.

    Mowbray was incensed that the referee Keith Stroud waved away Ben Brereton Díaz’s first-half penalty claims and was booked for his protests. Blackburn are up to second in the Championship table after making it six unbeaten at home, but they failed to take full advantage of postponements for Bournemouth and Fulham, and Mowbray made his feelings clear.

  • Thu, 30 Dec 2021 14:04:39 +0000: Ten January transfer targets – from Mbappé to Raphinha and Vlahovic - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    With the European window opening on 1 January, Anthony Martial and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also be on the move

    He may have ruled out a move in January but there remains a slim chance that the France forward could join Real Madrid this month after their failed attempts to sign him in the summer. Mbappé is entering the final six months of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and can therefore sign a pre-contract agreement with the Spanish giants, although talks are said to be on hold until after the two clubs meet in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League on 9 March. Whether Madrid will attempt to force the issue before then remains to be seen.

  • Fri, 24 Dec 2021 12:00:23 +0000: Boxing Day 1963 goal feast is famous but what happened two days later? - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    The results on 26 December 1963 – 66 goals in 10 games – are celebrated every year. They are only half of the story

    By Richard Foster for The Football Mine

    As the frenetic Christmas schedule swings into action, players in England are very much in the minority among major European leagues in readying themselves for the customary glut of games squeezed into the tightest of holiday schedules. While the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 are embarking on a winter break, Premier League and Football League clubs face the prospect of three games in a week, starting with the traditional Boxing Day fixture. Until the late 1950s, there was even a full programme of games on Christmas Day itself, as one of the few public holidays that allowed working people to attend matches.

    Boxing Day has become enshrined in English football culture as a much-loved curiosity of the fixture list. One reason why Boxing Day matches gained popularity was the extraordinary events of 1963, when 10 matches in the First Division produced a scarcely credible 66 goals, a feat that is still commemorated to this day. What fans may not know is what happened in the fixtures that followed two days later on 28 December. Many of the games were rematches from Boxing Day and there were some stunning turnarounds.

    Bradley Johnson's been reflecting on the 2020-21 campaign

    Bradley Johnson's experienced pretty much everything in his long career but, even at 34, he admits he's still gaining knowledge every time he steps out onto the pitch.

Newly relegated Blackburn Rovers have now resigned themselves to loosing many of their top players in the closed season due to their unsuccessful season just gone which will break the hearts of many of their supporters. One of the first players who will make an exit from Ewood Park is French midfielder Steven N`Zonzi who look set to return to the premier league as their are now a number of clubs battling for the players signature.

On a plus note the side from the north have many targets on their scope for the new season as Steve Kean looks to bolster his squad options with the first of these to be signed being the Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes. The influential striker has just signed a two year deal to take him to Ewood Park on a free transfer as he was released from his previous side Braga at the end of the season.

Another two players who have been signed by kean so far are Danny Murphy and Leon Best who have recently both signed lucrative deals to help the side retake their position in the top flight of English football. Both players arrived on free transfers which is always a bonus for clubs and bring with them a wealth of experience.

Want away winger Junior Hoilett is another player who is close to leaving the club this summer as he is on the verge of a move to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. The player is also said to have held talks with many of the premier leagues top clubs but it look for than likely that the player will look for pastures new in on of Europe’s top leagues. The twenty two year old has just been seen to fly out to Germany to seal this deal so barring a disaster you will see him in the colours of Monchengladbach next season.

Finally rover have also been involved in arranging the transfer of up and coming Ipswich goal keeper Scott Loach who has been on Keans radar for some time and are now looking to hijack an approach from Watford. The young keeper is thought to be the perfect player for Kean to rebuild from the back and it is believe that Loach is very keen on a move up north.
