Rovers & Spurs Looking For Change!

I'm one who always looks at facts, stats, records etc. I just can't help myself! Here are more sequences both Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur will want to change.

In the first of three consecutive Premiership meetings with London opposition Rovers will be looking to buck the trend of unwanted events, and not just against Tottenham! But Spurs themselves have a record this season that they want to see endů

Having only managed to beat Spurs once in our last four home Premiership meetings, this coming in November 2003 thanks to a Stephen Carr own goal we will be looking to end this run.

In fact the last occasion victory over Spurs was achieved at Ewood Park came hot off the heels of defeat to Manchester United, and as we all know they beat us 1-0 last weekend! That was United's first victory over Rovers in three years so maybe Rovers can claim their first victory at Ewood over Spurs in three years this weekend?

With Rovers looking to avoid a fifth straight Premiership defeat (this would equal our worst run of results in three years!) the task will be made all the more difficult, not only due to past histories with meetings against Spurs at Ewood but also the fact that Spurs' current run of form sees victory follow defeat! And having slumped to a 3-1 defeat to Reading last weekend the current pattern would meanů well you know!

Finally, Spurs are yet to record an away win in the Premiership this season so they will be looking to correct this.

All signs are pointing towards a draw, which on current form would be a welcome point for Rovers but what do you see happening this weekend? Will Rovers' winless home run against Spurs of three years continue, will it be five straight defeats, will Rovers finally win a game or will Spurs end their 2006-2007 season away day blues?

A point will be a good result but you should be looking at three from home games shouldn't you? About time Rovers won against Spurs at home so I think we may just sneak it!

i think its another 3pts for balckburn today, can't see the poor spurs beating you, maybe a draw, but i just think your lot will be too strong in midfield.

I hope you are right PUREGOLD!

"A point would be a good result" NO a win wood be a good result, a point would be a disapointment. If we (fans) are not positive in going for the three points at home against the twelfth side in the prermiership, then we can't expect to finish in the top 6. The only way a home point could be described as "a good result" would be in a relegation battle scenario or against the top 3. Being realistic is not an option for a premiership fan 'Hughes'.

A point is a good result if it means you might have got noting waterfall! If Rovers go a head but only draw that is bad, if we fall behind but draw surely that is a good result? As I said you should be looking to win home games and sure I want this but realistically a point after FOUR straight defeats would be a good result. I'm sure you would rather a point than none!
