Rovers captain Chris Samba has finally admitted what most Rovers fans already knew - Rovers were simply not good enough against Newcastle on Saturday.
Whilst manager Steve Kean was busy passing the buck onto the referee and hiding behind the few glimpses Rovers showed captain Samba has been a little more damning in his reaction to Rovers 3-1 defeat at St James Park.
Samba told the Lancashire Telegraph - "That was not a good Blackburn team that turned up today in the sense it was not a good Blackburn performance.
"We are much better than we showed, As a team we could have gone out and made it more difficult for them, we conceded soft goals.
"It is on ourselves. You need to push your luck and you need to force your own destiny. We need to do that, we need to create more chances, push forward more and be tougher at the back.
"We need to have more will, more heart, everything we can improve, every department. As a team and as individuals we have to ask ourselves questions and come into the game with a different attitude and to be tougher, much tougher.
"To be fair without being as good as we should have been they allowed us to get back into the game and we created some chances but to concede that third goal was really sad.
"I think the whole world will see the decision was horrific.
'When we started to come back then the decision went against us. It is really sad.
"But it is recognising the formation the gaffer gave us and implementing that on the pitch.
'We need to fix things ourselves and make sure we stick together for the games coming up.
"We need to be more ruthless in both boxes because we have been beaten in both boxes.
'It is about the team. As defenders we need to be tougher because we are the last line.
"We were not tough enough as a team. As individuals we did not do the right thing to approach the game in the right manner."
Is that the mass sound of clapping I can here?
