Arsenal Come To Ewood Park

Arsenal Come To Ewood Park

Blackburn Rovers' reward for victory over Portsmouth at Fratton Park is a home draw against Arsenal in the Quarter Final of the Carling Cup.

Maybe not the kindest of draws as even the Arsenal kids ARE a match for almost anyone, but the home advantage could be a huge one. With Chelsea taking on Liverpool if the draw wasn't open enough for Rovers as it was, the opportunity that could arise (should we overcome Arsenal) to win the Carling Cup could be a MASSIVE one.

The last eight tie will take place at Ewood Park on the week commencing 17th December, so hopefully we can get a nice early Christmas present!!!

Nothing can be taken for granted, but with Sparky almost certain to name a near full strength side as good as the Arsenal kids are (and they REALLY are!!!) Rovers will start as favourites won't they?!?!

Don't be too confident, HDM. They stuffed as last year although we did partly name a reserve side. How have all London clubs dodged all the Northern clubs? How have we drawn Chelsea again? How did we not win yesterday? So many questions...

As I said in the article dude it WON'T be easy at all, far from it, but we would start as favourites wouldn't we???
I asked myself that same question how did we not win yesterday :) lol! It could have gone either way.

We did well to go to Portsmouth and win, I'm glad we are at home this time.
Yeah Portsmouth reacted very well didn't they, not that many teams will go to Newcastle and win 4-1 will they.

Even if we do, why shouldn't we beat them?!?!
To win it (and we DO want to win it!!!) chances are we will have to face the winner of that match at some point, so why not do them in the Semi Final (if we beat Arsenal).

It'll be a tough game, but I do think we can do it. No point in playing if we think otherwise is there.

The CC'll be ace this year. Eight good teams in the last all taking it seriously. A few more years like this and it may become prestigious again

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.
