Blackburn Pre/Post-Match Discussion
December 2, 2009 Paul Tomkins

Usual routine – members discuss match below.

The Sam Allardyce factor could go either way here, either motivating us and/or enlivening the home crowd.

But I expect us to have enough to weather any storm, and Rovers’ game with Chelsea tonight will hopefully drain our opponents ahead of Saturday. Extra-time would be an added bonus.

I’d be surprised if Aquilani started, but shocked if he didn’t play in the game against Fiorentina – the perfect chance to start and get a full game under his belt.

Rarely an easy place to go to, but providing Liverpool can field a fairly full-strength team, and deal with the long-balls into the box, I expect three points.
