Blackburn Rovers V Aston Villa: Today 15:00

Post by Sandie on Sat Apr 29, 2017 11:49 am

Win and we win, lose and we can maybe push Birmingham deeper in to the relegation battle. Divided loyalties today?

It's looking like Jedinak is out and we haven't won without him but Kodjia is back, so it's difficult to read the portents for this one.

I think we'll win today, because Bruce will have made the players well aware that not putting in a performance wont look good given our local rivalry. I don't expect a good game, and mistakes by either team will probably decide it, but on balance I think we will win by the odd goal.
Our away following could have an input though.

It will be interesting to see if Hogan and Kodjia have improved as a pair. I like Hogan and his vision and movement. If Kodjia looks up once in a while they could cause some problems.

A long range goal from Gardner would be nice.

Radio WM saying we look like we don't know what we're doing. That just about sums up the amateurish way we are giving the ball away at every opportunity. No shots on target yet.

Some of our fans spotted wearing Rovers shirts in the away end. Small time, IMO, much as I'd like to see Blues going down.

I understand your point of view Sandie, but I've got good friends who are Blues fans so I don't want to see them suffer. It's self inflicted damage in BCFC's case by a cretinous board decision, and as always it's the fans that end up hurt.
I think we need a healthier football scene in Birmingham, because the area has become a joke nationally.

Half time 0-0. As usual our "tactic" is .... keep it tight, let the opposition have the ball, then Hutton can hare off down the wing occasionally and try and find Kodjia. Is that all we do in training?

Graham scores from the centre of the box. 1-0 Blackburn.

10 man Blues are now 2-0 up. Fair play to them.

Grealish replaced an injured Kodjia, Adomah has come on for Hourihane but the whole thing remains total predictable rubbish.

There is no pressure on this match at all, and yet Bruce refuses to play anything resembling proper football. How's he going to change this around in the next three months?

We lost.

We don't have a recognisable system.

We can't pass the ball.

We are totally CLUELESS!

The same manager and coaching team that have overseen the turgid rubbish that we've played in nearly every game since November, cannot turn this around.

It's only my opinion, but unless we do a U turn and replace the people responsible for this farce then relegation will be more likely than promotion next season.

The football was actually better under RDM.

The club continue to be dogged by the kind of structural issues that mean I struggle to see us breaking the cycle of mediocrity we are in and have been for some time. We're not going to grant my wish that we stop being shit.

Bruce has said that we've had "one or two bad performances away from home".

I'm struggling to recall the good performances. Away or at home.
