    Re: A turning point in our season?

    That comparison is a way to say that I think we are evolving (a process) but not going to become a "progressive side" or move away from being physical and enjoying set-pieces - why should we when...

    Re: A turning point in our season?

    I'd compare us to Crystal Palace in their last season under Hodgson at the moment*.

    *Obviously Mick's got an extra year which will really test whether he is a pragmatic manager or whether he...

    Re: A turning point in our season?

    Can someone explain to me what a DoF would do that isn't being done/partially being done already? As per a poster above, the club were reluctant recently.

    I don't think we can argue that it...

    Our next three games:

    West Brom: we had a good record against their manager last year - admittedly at "lesser" opposition - and it's probably not wholesale change from that style.

    Re: Who will get the sack first?

    If Man United twitter get their wish then you can add Ole into that which could result in Mick, Warnock, Harris, Trollope and Ole all being out of work at the same time.

    Re: How many will West Brom put on us ?

    We took four points from Valérien Ismaël last season. Of all the sides predicted for the top three, West Brom are the side we should fancy our chances against the most.

    Re: BLACKBURN ROVERS v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    There is potential for a lot of positives to come from this season but turning potential into reality seems a long way off at the moment.

    Re: The Bluebirds Academy and DVP thread...

    We scored on 75th and 81st minute so not garbage time but that age group do seem to concede. A concern?

    Re: BLACKBURN ROVERS v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    One positive:

    - If Bacuna is playing CM now that might suit us much better going forward. Mick hasn't seen him there before but he might have been forced to by first half.

    A formation change! Nelson has done reasonably well at full-back in previous games (I wouldn't do it but he's done okay) but Flint and Morrison as back two is an awful idea... if that's what he's...

    Harris spotted that Flint and Morrison don't play well together and chose to keep Morrison in the side. Is Mick about to make Flint his choice and bring in McGuinness?

    Re: BLACKBURN ROVERS v CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

    I think NG is our best RWB and Bagan our best LWB so good to see both back starting. Eventually want to see McGuiness come in for Morrison or Flint but maybe Mick wants to limit changes to defence...

    Several clubs now have seen what he did for Manchester City under-19's and in Eredivisie in 2015–16 and wanted to give him a chance.

    Posters who were quick to remind us Callum Patterson was player of the month for Sheffield Wednesday probably shouldn't be moaning about our style of football.
