A case of from the sublime to the ridiculous.

After floundering on arguably the meanest back line in Europe on Sunday, we now seemingly have the chance to improve our goal difference against the most amateurish looking defence the Premiership has seen for some time.

Of course it won't be that easy in practice with the hype that will surround Sav's return and them scrapping for their lives. However it is a must win three points with our recent slump in form having given Newcastle and Wigan a glimmer of hope.

We must also make Spurs and Arsenal fight for their positions in case the unexpected happens.

As always it's a case of which Rovers side turns up on the night but I have a sneaking feeling we'll win. tinykit.gif

It could be an entertaining game. Brum to give them their due can play pretty stuff in which case tonight's game could be surprisingly open which would suit us perfectly so long as Neill remembers his positional sense and we don't leave Gray too isolated against Pennant.

However, Hughes is probably debating with himself how inspirational "lets do it for Sav" he can dare be. Brum have shown remarkably little apetite for the scrap (Sutton apart and he looks like he's given up) and our biggest threat could well be the ref's cards.

Need to watch out for Johnson injuring our guys though- he is a bit dirty at times.

We are going to win, you've gotta fancy Savage for a set piece haven't you, you know it's going to happen!

Anyway, me & me mate are going, see you there! Where is everyone meeting on route or near the ground?

COME ON THE REAL BLUES!

Same here - and a scoreline that keeps popping up but to who?

We haven't been playing very well and are probably due a tubbing - however vice versa and are due a decent performance and win away from home.

We got a decent point at Portsmouth who are a better team in my opinion than Brum - however as we all know the Bluenoses need the win and I just fear the home advantage will carry them through to victory.

I just hope it isn't the case and we can add one of the final nails and pass the hammer over to somebody else.

So 0v0 it will probably be

Referee Uriah Rennie. God help us

I seem to remember him refereeing the same fixture at the latter stage of our promotion season, Duff scored wondergoal ( much maligned phrase), can't remember who scored the second, Marcus Bent perhaps?

When he's good he's very very good, when he's bad, he's like Riley!!!

The rumour I heard at the Liverpool match was that Tugay is out for the season.

just getting ready to leave work and head down!

brum 1-3 rovers

sutton bellamy (2), savage.

savage's appearance might work against rovers (geeing the crowd up), those idiots in the main stand (next to away fans) dont need any extra gee ups! and he he scores it will be utter carnage!

i expect to hear "i predict a riot" played on the PA tonight! rolleyes.gif

I can only see Arsenal's CL game listed tonight.

I might be going mad but I'm sure our game was scheduled for TV.  huh.gif

So did I.

Extended highlights are on afterwards though.
