Nope, and since Mercer's optimistic and putting money on it I think you can safely say there's no chance.

We're down and troubled, in search for better days

Back to the beginning, we're at the end again

All of my time, compressed to itching moments

As the future repeats today

The fat lady is just having a bout of nerves before her performance. She is still expected to sing at the end of the season.
BuckyRover: Has NOT supported Ince since 12 minutes into the Wigan game.

In case you needed reminding....

Maybe Stevie has been right all along with the twist and turns in this battle - Kean really upbeat post match, thinks we have an excellent chance of staying up.
It is amazing what can be achieved when no one cares who gets the credit.

That gives zero cause for optimism. Lose 5 win 1 = relegation.

There's little doubt that we've now emerged from a sticky patch and he's turned it around.

In my opinion it ended after Bolton beat us at home before Christmas, and Kean didn't loose his job ;)

Shocking decision.

I agree. It's just too late now.

No we deserve relegation.
Something needs to break,if we were to stay up then nothing changes,Kean, Anderson and son with their disgusting snouts in the trough for another season.
Enough is enough.

Bit of an obvious thread!
Of course we hope we can pull off a great escape but yesterday we just did enough against a poor team, and that Qpr result is not what we wanted, but the way Qpr played compared to us was world apart.
Qpr were on levels of fight and spirit that I only saw from Givet.

The odds are against us, im sure we would all like to see us survive but right now we are one of the favourites to go down its in our own hands but the problem is KEAN so its hard to sway to a positive outcome from this.

Nope - we were down before a ball was kicked in Sept with the joke that is in charge - not fit to be called a Manager!

We have reached the stage where we need others to do the job for us. Wigan will beat Wolves on the final day to give them at least 37 points. Even if QPR only pick up one more point our inferior goal difference means we will need to find five points from the final three matches. I suspect that Bolton may also struggle to pass either Wigan or QPR. Sadly, those early season defeats against Wolves and Everton at Ewood and the dropping of six points to both Bolton and WBA is going to come back to bite us. However, in truth, I don't believe we actually deserve to survive. Every decision that Venky's have made has been detrimental to the club and ultimately if you keep making the wrong decisions in any business it's only going to have one outcome.

No. Without wanting to sound mean the change in tone among some our support because we won yesterday is as short-sighted as it gets. From the position of disadvantage that Rovers have put themselves in, the crucial factor is how QPR and Wigan get on. QPR beat Spurs which was an absolutely disastrous result for us and more than suggests they're capable of beating Stoke in 2 weeks. Wigan have Newcastle and Wolves at home, 3-6 points guaranteed. We're worse off than we were pre-Norwich, it'll take a miracle now.

Its not in our own hands now, that is the problem
Only way out now is for the Venkies to grease palms and the Glasgow mafia to swing into action

And one day, when the full story of Steve Kean's managerial reign and the agent Jerome Anderson's involvement at Ewood Park is told, as it must be,

Blackburn supporters will be owed many an apology,                                                R.I.P                 Ruined In Pune

If yesterday was the start of The Great Escape (and I very much doubt it)it will only delay the inevitable. If we don't get relegated this season it will be next. Our owners have no interest and are not prepared to invest and we have a manager totally out of his depth. I have been following the Rovers since the late sixties but am in a dilemma on whether to renew next season if Venkys and Kean are still involved. Every supporter needs hope, but there is none with these clowns in charge.

Can't see Wigan beating Newcastle i have to say. I think we'll suprise Spurs, then only end up drawing with Wigan, but who knows i still think there will be plenty of twists left in the next 3 weeks.

We can only hope Chelsea pull off a minor miracle and progress to the Champions League final and don't give a rats behind about our game. Next weeks game could go either way depending on how spurs are feeling, have we ever beat spurs with Robbo in goal? But wigan is the make or break game, we lose we go down simple, we win we give ourselves a fighting chance.

not a cat in hell's chance, we need 2 more wins, chelsea and spurs are pushing hard for a champions league place and i can see that fight going down to the last day of the season, we were mediocre yesterday, nothing more, norwich are just a poor side, we blew it months ago when they didnt sack coco, yesterday was just a delaying of the inevitable, even the most optimistic must surely now realise its game over. I can see bolton getting a couple of points from their games in hand which will make it even more difficult.

Is there anybody out there that thinks yesterday was the start of the Great Escape?

I don't want to sound like Chrome Dome himself but...

Spurs - Spurs are 15th in the form table with 6 points from 6 games (shame we are 18th in the same table with 3 points from 6 games). More than this though, surely we must back ourselves against a team that has just rolled over for two teams in Norwich and QPR that we have been better than every time we have played them this season.

Wigan - I can't remember us not beating Wigan at home - I have just checked and we have beat them the last 5 times we have played them in The Premiership at Ewood Park. No disrespect to Wigan but it's one of them games that if we don't win then we deserve to get relegated.

Chelsea - It's all about how much the game means to Chelsea. If they can't climb up or down the league and the game is sandwiched between the FA Cup Final and Champions League Final then the game becomes a totally different proposition.


Snookers required once Venkys let the January window close and only spent 2.50 despite having many ''active bids'' and ''our business done early''!!!!! Tossers.To really shove it up us they then sell Samba .So we have had a Championship quality team all season and guess where we will end up?????

I reckon we're going to need 38 points now which is 2 wins and a draw. Can't see us getting that many but if we win on Sunday at least we'll probably still be in with a shout in the last game and then you never know. Long shot though.
