Blackburn Rovers pre-season match thread

I've been one of the few calling for Ndidi at centre back for a couple of years now. Let's see how it goes. 

Surely we need to field our best players in their strongest position, rather than using them to fill gaps elsewhere. It's the same as the debate about moving Ric to the wing.

I just feel like so many attacks break down when Ndidi has the ball. 

 

He's outstanding at breaking down opposition attacks, mind. There was quite a few occasions last season where he'd win the ball only to give it straight back to the opposition.

Was really expecting to see our strongest available team. This doesn't fill me with confidence going into next weekend with regards to our preparation 

 

This is with all the internationals happening :D

It obviously won't be this team next week but it will be interesting as I take it a few are still not match fit. Which I would have guessed after a month off and about 4 pre season matches.

Surely we need another midweek friendly to get a few more 'first teamers' some beneficial game time?

What we don’t know is how many behind closed doors with no live coverage/public knowledge friendlies are happening during the week etc. I’d guess we’ve played a few more than had been reported! 

You've got to really, really hope so.

With internationals and injuries this is what's left.  No need to worry too much all our international players will be getting put through their paces whether they play or not. 

 

Those who are injured, can't do much about that apart from sack the head physio.

 

Everything's fine. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who am I kidding? WTF is this?

I reckon the answer to that is zero. These things pretty much always get reported on somewhere.

So Jakupovic can’t even get a game when no one else is available, why extend his contract? We have so many players who don’t play and even extend contracts when we know this 🤷🏻‍♂️

Will be the same as in the last games I imagine where we do a big change at half time and he will play the 2nd half

Which players are unavailable?

 

Maddison, Soyuncu, Justin, Kasper, Ricardo, Fuchs, Youri, Praet, Castagne...any im forgetting? And what is the deal with Evans? Surely he'd still play some pre season?

Hope Benkovic is away with Croatia rather than being injured :fc:

 

Always interesting to see couple of new names pop up. Bit weird that Jakupovic isn't starting but good to see a young lad get a chance. 

 

Ndidi at centre back could be interesting. 

 

Defence is obviously makeshift but want to see more from our senior attackers.
