Been back through a few pages and couldn't find one - if I'm being thick, could one of the mods please merge.

Anyway - "interesting" question for one of our more experienced posters, perhaps arbitro, to kick off the thread.

I notice that in the City v Southampton match, both the Saints keeper and the referee are wearing black. It's probably a very old rule but I didn't think this was allowed? Shouldn't the red or away keeper have used a change strip?

Dunno the answer to your question Stuart, but nice goal from Lambert.

Could see that coming. City are trying to be a pseudo-Barca today - with inferior technical players.

Woah-ho-ho! Great goal from the super sub Steven Davis!

Having seen today's two matches, that is one huge gulf between teams expected to struggle and what Rovers are today.

Very very worrying.

I was thinking the same watching Wigan. After the shock start they played quite well. Rovers are lacking so much pace comparing to Wigan for example. If not already relegated we would go down this season. Actually we can go down this season.

We were incredibly lucky to have that many poor teams with us last season......I knew we were going down from the final whistle of Wolves away the season before but it's football and you never know so I would watch bits of Bolton, QPR, Wigan and Wolves and they would be almost as bad as us.....if we had stayed up last season, the Yak and Hoilett would be gone and we would be relegated by early March.

See sackfergie is trending on twitter. Let's look forward to the media storm tomorrow when all their fans are demonised.

Felliani especially in the first half gave text book on how to play the role. It was a joy to watch. His goal a bonus.

My first Rovers game was at Ewood Park on Saturday 7th September 1963, Rovers 7 v Spurs 2 (McEvoy 4,Douglas 1,England 1,Pickering 1)

Rovers team: Else,Bray,Newton,Clayton,England,McGrath,Ferguson,McEvoy,Pickering,Douglas,Harrison. Attendance: 20,949

Only 3 in the Rovers team cost a transfer fee: Else £20k, Harrison £20k and Ferguson £2k

Good signing for Sunderland in Adam Johnson, rate him highly and can improve further.

Not seen as much of Fletcher but they have splashed the cash today.

splashing the cash ensuring they stay in the premiership, if only our owners had done that

Remember when John Williams decided Ince would be a better bet than Laudrup?

Seeing a Sam Allardyce-team that isn't Rovers being obtilerated will always bring a smile to my face. I'll admit it's not the most noble source of pleasure, but it works every time.

I'm sure it's mutual, I've no doubt whatsoever that Big Sam will have a grin from ear to ear whenever Rovers get beaten. No doubt us getting relegated would have had him rolling around the floor laughing too. Who could blame him?

Not Premier League related but are Sky really going to show Rangers try and beat a team full of plumbers, students and bin men every weekend for the next couple of seasons ??

I doubt he gives us a second thought to be honest. He's said he doesn't care. He got his payoff.

Funny hearing West Ham fans calling for him to be sacked after losing one game in Prem though
BuckyRover: Has NOT supported Ince since 12 minutes into the Wigan game.

In case you needed reminding....

That was always going to happen. West Ham fans tolerates him last season because he fad them on the promotion trail ("means to an end" and all that).

What can they hope for in the current PL? 10th? 9th? Either would be a massive success - especially in the first season back. Just staying in the division would be a first season achievement. I doubt that will be good enough for the 'ammers though - and whilst 'ammer 'arry remains out of work they'll have the Newcastle-Shearer situation simmering away.
