    Meh.

  • Leicester Mag

    Haven’t Blackburn knocked us out in recent times? Then again who the donald duck hasn’t? On the other hand the ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ’ฉ times believe we’ll have a new owner by then.

    • JohnnyH

      Another no-spend transfer window, phantom buyers never appear, fatwat takes TV money, and off we go again.

    • Themoscow72

      I look forward to lots of trophies with the new owner yes cannot wait.

  • Scott wood

    What a surprise the teams with money get easy games

  • Kneebotherm8

    So who did Walsall get then?……..๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    So there’s another 3rd round exit on the cards. An Adam Armstrong brace or more to rub into the fans that knew he at least deserved a proper run before just being sold.

      He can’t get a game for Blackburn so that’s doubtful.

      • Mrkgw

        He has played 15 games for them this season and was in the starting line up for their last game. Irrespective of the fact, I donโ€™t he wasnโ€™t cut out for the Premiership albeit, he is still young and has a while yet to develop his game.

    • Vodkamagpie

      Easy win for us according to most fans logic. Blackburn’s first eleven must be less than 5mil, so what ever team we put out, we shall triumph

  • Themoscow72

    Remember when we played Blackburn away in the cup 5th round in the 1992/3 season and started queuing up at 5.00pm at night and the queue was all ready round the Gallowgate. The police made the club open the ticket office at 3.00am in the morning there were that many people. There was a massive stampede and when I bought my two tickets I realised I had lost a shoe and was going straight to work.
