Still 5th Round and Out For Rovers!

Still 5th Round and Out For Rovers!
Wednesday night sees Rovers face Arsenal at Ewood Park in the FA Cup fifth round replay with Manchester City awaiting the winner in the Quarter Final.

Prior to the goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium not many people fancied Rovers' chances of progressing much further than that day so the poll was ran again...

The majority still think that we'll do well to overcome one of the best sides in English football today, arguably in European football and as such 54% think it will still be round five and out! Should we overcome the Gooners then 31% think we'll go all the way to Wembley, providing of course the Final is in fact even played there!

So in summary
5th Round - 54%
Quarter Final - 6%
Semi Final - 9%
Final - 31%


Despite sadly out of Europe in the week (still gutted now!) following the win over Portsmouth on Sunday afternoon thoughts of another Europe campaign next season were very much strengthened. With two fronts this season still viable options to make this possible next season along with the Intertoto Cup if needed during the summer the current poll is asking, Can Rovers make it into Europe again next season; if so by which means?

As for what you think, cast your vote and why not have your say on the latest polls findings...

I really do think we can pull it off on Wednesday you know guys! It will without doubt be a massive task in front of us but a home crowd cheering us on and Man City awaiting in the QF's as an incentive we have a great chance of silverware this season if we can. SF will be the minimum aim at least for me.

As much as I want Rovers to win... I'm not daring to either believe it or even say it... Sunday's performance was far better much against inferior opposition and a donkey of a keeper.

Portsmouth are a better side than the one we saw at the weekend and David James is also far better. Sure he made some really bad mistakes but from what I've seen of him this season he's been fantastic, as good as almost anyone I've seen, without doubt English. Man United is the toughest match potenitally we have left this season (Arsenal aside) so a rise up the League is VERY possible. Bring on the game on Wednesday, I can't wait.
