Here we go again with a visit to Allrdyce's gladiatorial arena. We need strong minds and ample stretchers but these are the fixtures that you just have to get on with; travel up north, dig in, get a result, get back home, job done! It's a simple as that. No bleating about bully boy tactics, bad referees or bad football, just do the job. This season we have to view teams like Blackburn for what they are; average. If we can't overcome Blackburn and the other teams that comprise the Premiership's meat and drink then we don't deserve anything.
Time to stop being counted out and time to stand up and be counted.
