Albion talking point: Good result or points dropped?

The Argus: Tomasz Kuszczak concedes as Rovers go 2-1 up Tomasz Kuszczak concedes as Rovers go 2-1 up

Albion did it again at Ewood Park.

Fourteen months after David Lopez denied Blackburn a win with a late penalty, Dale Stephens did similar with a not-quite-as-late header.

So how do you view tonight's 3-3 draw?

Disappointing after they went 1-0 up?

Or delighted to strike late against a team who themselves had hit last-gasp levellers in two away draws in the last week?

Yes, we know - it's probably a bit of both!

But what's your over-riding emotion after an extraordinary night?u

It was disappointing to see them loose the lead but it was great to see them fight back, which has been missing in the last few games. Thought they would come back with nothing! So point gained. 21 more to play for. UTA

Well of course it must be seen as a good result after being behind twice in the second half. It was another sleepless night for me as the game ended at 3:30am local time here and my only coverage was the Player/BBC Radio coverage.

Commentary left me a worried fan as it seemed that after the first 20 mins we were capitulating again to a team playing catch up in league positions.

Huge credit for battling back with that third goal - some more now from any source.

The overriding and enduring question is still nagging after this game and I know it's been asked so many times, but why oh why oh whg oh why do we wait until defeat is on the cards before putting a proper attacking formation out there. I feel OG has the potential to become a legend. He has coped admirably with an horendous injury list, unambitios and sometimes confusing transfer market movement and has brought young talent to first team readiness. But I, like many others, am left baffled by the practise of using only one winger for much of the time whilst having players on the bench who are desperate to get on and tear at the opposition defence. The 11th hour use of KLL is particularly odd - does OG really feel he only has 15 mins in his legs?

Obviously OG has reason unknown to me and the rest of us. I certainly won't be judging him until at least the end of the season. I just wish that we could go out there and look like a team set up to scare the opposition and take early goals instead of chasing the game as we have had to do lately.

Still, when all is said and done, we're still in the play off hunt and I suspect that there will be a few more twists and turns before anything is settled.

All power to the Albion and lets see where this ride takes us.

Good post my friend.

I'm as baffled as you by the Kaz situation.... There are many on here that think he is an impact player and imho I'd agree to a degree.
I happen to think though that he is equally as effective from the start... I only have to remember back to the opening dozen games of the season to have my evidence for this.
Kaz carried our attacking threat in these games almost single handed ly. He put on mom after mom performances and kept us pressing on whilst we suffered the worst injury crisis I've known at the Albion.

For me the guy is a winner, a game changer and a threat like no other (on his day) with so few games left, he has to play and from the start imho.

I'm happy with a point, and certainly happier than Blackburn should be. We only let the lead slip once, they let it go twice, and very late too.

Anything to arrest the slide and start scoring. Three goals - I bet none of us foresaw that!
