Reflections on the Blackburn game

There are too many people who write reports, so I thought I’d just sum up my thoughts in a few points 1) Paul Robinson is not an international class keeper Barring one top drawer save from a Scott Dann header, he didn’t really do much – and he should have had the second Craig Gardner […]
