Jogger set to miss rest of the season

Jogger set to miss rest of the season

Keith Andrews is set to miss the rest of the season through injury.

Keith has been struggling with an injury for the last couple of weeks since being dropped from the side.

Andrews may have even played his last game for the club as the possibility of the Irishman leaving looms large with fans turning against him and the club having money to buy superior players to a man who is without doubt a trier but limited.

A couple of Championship clubs even had a big turned down to loan him in the last month or so.

Either way, it is apparent that the lack of Andrews in this crucial run in will be viewed as a bonus by many.

Luckily we have plenty of players that can play in his position...

It's a shame, only because he was set to join Palace on loan. Now we have to pay the donkey whilst he is even more useless than usual.

Mikey you should go into politics with comments like that. Why does everybody give Andrews such a hard time, he knows he isn't the most gifted footballer at Ewood, however he is one of if not the most professional players we have on our books. He always gives 100% whatever position he is asked to play. He never moans when not selected. He never moans when the morons boo him. Whilst I agree he isn't first team first choice, he does provide cover in several positions and always puts in a proper shift, unlike the permanently sick, lame and lazy at Ewood

Get well soon Keith, and whilst I appreciate you will probably do one in the summer, I hope you are better appreciated at your new club.

BnW99, whilst I fully agree with your comments (having posted an Andrews apology last year), recently he has not been putting in the work that usually allows forgiveness for his weaknesses. Having said that it may have been down to his injuries so I will not booo or mock him. Steve Keen on the other hand....grrrrrrr.

Oh well, won't be missed, Pity we don't get a few more injured who shouldnt be in the team then perhaps Kean would have to put our best team on the pitch :-)

Ok, I'll reply to high FN1 and BnW in this comment. First off, don't kid yourselves, Andrew's does not always give 100% on the pitch, in fact I am pretty sure I can count on one finger how mant times he has done so this season. If you call running around and aimlessly pointing whilst constantly letting the ball float over your hard commitment, then you and I have different definitions of the word. More often than not, due to his lacklustre passing and his sheer inability to do anything but turn backwards and give the ball to either a defender or Robinson, he is a huge liability for us. And I refuse to give the guy the benefit of the doubt just because he is crap and for some people that seems to mean he should not come under the same criticism as other non performers in our team. What amazes me, FN1 is how quick you and other fans are to criticise Kean and players such as Roberts for not performing, yet you give Andrew's a free ride. Kean has under performed this season and if he does not improve, he probably deserves the sack, why then can the same not be said for a poor player who adds nothing to our team?

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
