rover.gif being a menber of a very undesirable football site i asked one off the cardiff members to answer a few questions.

1 what was your views from the 1st game.

PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON.

1 we more than matched you boyos,cannot wait till we reach the premier to play big teams every week.

2 what did you think of blackburn's support.

PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON

2 very suprised with the numbers you brought,with your bad reputation 'as fair weather fans' i thought you would only bring 2-300.

3who impressed you in the blackburn team

PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON

3 the goalscorer and the centre backs,todd and johansen

4 what are your expectations this season

PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON

5 how many cardiff do you expect at the replay.

Not going to predict on this one, but hopefully the boys will come through with a comfortable win. rover.gif

That coach cannot go very fast with all those taffies on the roof!

The official site is saying that the extra day of recovery time for next Monday's Bolton match will hopefully allow Ferguson and Bothroyd to come into the reckoning for that game which presumably means they are both ruled out of the replay with injuries.

I'd like to see Matty given a run out against Cardiff- he did pretty well when he came on at Pompey from the highlights I saw. More of the same (if not even better) from MGP and Mokoena please.

Try Thommo and Reid in the centre midfield or Thommo and Flitty? I would stick with Nissa at left back because the Bluebirds must have Matteo marked out as the Rovers' weak link.

It would be nice not only to survive but to win by more than one goal, and in normal time as well!

Rovers 3

Cardiff 1

High hopes deflated if Rovers do not prevail in this one. However, one of the Prem sides in this weeks replays and rearranged game will go out- odds on.

Maybe it's the new air"bus" A380(??) that they're hiring.

My understanding is that it's making it's maiden voyage today and i've heard its a pretty big bus.

It's even got restaurants, bars and casinos on board.

So i suppose as long as it's not too wide for the motorways, they'll be using it to get 'up north'.

We should have enough to overcome cardiff at home. I think we should play an attacking and youthful side but with enough experience to make sure of the result.

Friedel

Neil todd Mokoena Gray

Thompson Douglas Pedersen

Gally

Johnson Stead

Why not try giving Johnson a go, gally could be at his best behind a front two as he tends to come deep. keep pedersens form and confidence going, give stead a chance to end his goal drought. I think gray is a more attacking full back and suitable for home games, he might be more like last season now. Also Johansson a rest for the more importiant league and keep moko in the side following his good performances. Would like to play nelsen but hes unavailable.

Team I would like to see:

                    Gallagher  Dickov

Pedersen      Reid    Thompson  Emerton

Johansson    Mokeona  Todd    Niell

                              Friedel

Subs:  Stead, Jansen, Tugay, Matteo, Enckleman

Thats presuming Flitcroft is still out- is he?

2-0 Rovers (Gallager, Thompson)

Pedersen      Reid     Thompson   Emerton

Johansson    Mokeona   Todd     Niell

                               Friedel

That's basically the team I'd put out, although I'd give Gray or McEveley a game at left back and start Jansen over Gallagher. Dickov will play, seeing as he is suspended for the Bolton game. I hope Jemal Johnson gets another run out. He looked quite good, from his brief appearence. Rovers to win this one 3-1. Is the game on TV? BBC Wales possibly? You can pick that up through Sky.

Id be foolish to say I expect us to win,but come on we got to,even if we put out 5-6 reserves.

Id start MGP,Stead (gotta score now),Reid in the middle as a test,McEveley or Gray at left back.

3-4 changes to Saturdays team to freshen it up,giving rests to a couple of players.
