Tonight gives our club a chance to wipe away some of the lurking memories from Saturday and the 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

Tonight; and this is meant as no disrespect to our opponents Blackburn, the team shouldn`t be out-classed or out-played and it promises to be a far more even affair.

In the build up to the fixture, in his pre-match interview, Roy has spoken about that 4-0 reverse and his expectations for the remainder of the season. Considering the word relegation seems to be creeping into a lot of interviews associated with those at the club, they are refreshing words,

“There is no point in harping on about the past but 4-0 hurt my pride and the player`s pride. But we can come back from that.”

“We will see how high we get. But I think you are entitled to start looking to Europe.”

Is that through league position or the much debated ‘Fair Play` league?

  • I’d like to get to 40 points before we start looking upwards… these past two years were a bit too nervy for my taste…

  • its interesting that when we were on a good spell earlier in the season, roy dismissed europe, and when we hit a bad patch, he is claiming it is possible….trying to spur the lads on perhaps??

  • After tonight, I think we should table the speculation about Europe and focus on picking up something from Bolton, before ManU come in and hand us another home loss.

  • After the last two home results then i would forget about Europe and concentrate on consolidating a mid table spot.

  • i agree with our friendly man city friend……europe is now out of reach except through fair play….avoiding relegation comfortably is now the key!!
