I live a long way away and don't attend much. That is why, although I read the forum most days I don't post too much as I feel you guys who attend games usually have far more valid points to make.

My following of Rovers is essentially here and online via Radio Rovers. I don't know how you guys who are closer to it can bear it to be honest. I've been a Rover's fan since the season when Don Mackay bought Ossie Ardilles and Steve Archibold, so I have witnessed being at the wrong end of the second tier before. But this is now depressing the hell out of me.

When Kean was in charge my wife left me and my hatred of him and the lies and the dark goings on, that were apparent but not in the open, seemed to mirror my own life in a spooky way. I sometimes felt like Kean and the fat controller had a wee voodoo doll of me and all I ever heard was just lies and bullshit. I wasn't really depressed about the club so much as just angry and wanting to scream and to throttle them.

Anyway - now it is different. My life is very good outside of Rovers. I'm happy, the family is happy, work is enjoyable, but every time we play I go in a really bad mood and no-one understands. For a long time those midweek games, listening upstairs on the laptop, have been a grim experience, but now it's like everyday gloom and despair. Saturdays are hell, Christ I was @#/? off after Fulham and I ended up causing an argument with my partner just because she said "well I'm sure it will get better" and "I thought a supporter followed their club through bad times". Arghhhhhh, can we just f###ing win a league game please, I know it's a side show but please, I'm sick of having my weekend ruined. I can't even look at Coyle's face, let alone listen to him speak. Then I come on here and read all this stuff and it is just getting too much. Venkysout? How? We're 100 f###ing million in debt - most of it to them!! They're not going to let us go, they @#/? hate us - every single last bloody one of us - they're going to sell the training ground, they're going to sell the stadium. If we are ever owned by someone else we'll probably have to rent the stadium off them (or some God forsaken manifestation of SEM) for the next hundred years.

I think I need a break from everything Rover's related. I'm going to try and stay away for a bit. This is ruining my mental health. Hats off to you guys who are attending - or for whom Rovers have been a bigger part of your life than they have for me - I honestly don't know how you can cope with this crap. The transfer window is about to close ffs, are we trying to buy anyone? Does anyone care? What happened to football and the old style news about signing players? Are we going to win a league match all season? When will we ever hear a word out of Venkys? Is anyone going to explain (or even bother to lie) to us about why everyone is being sold and no money is being re-invested? Is anyone going to even attempt to explain (or lie) to us about where the transfer money is going? Is our youth team going to be able to survive in league one? If Brockhall gets sold to Burnley (I'm not f###ing joking btw) who are they going to sell the ground to? (oh - I answered that one already - some company who will rent it back to us). Am I going to wake up from this? Ever?

Bye.

My great nephew lives in Whalley and he has started saying he supports Burnley because the cool kid at school does. He's been told but perhaps the best solution is to remove the source of the problem. Doubt any court would have a problem with that.

Get a cane from the garden and give him a wack.

Sorry I watched the film Kes last night. The Headmaster is superb.

I think he was a real teacher/headmaster, it was filmed close to where I lived as a young lad, the accents are right out of my childhood.

Take it easy mate.

I have been shocked by the 'Your memories' reminder that Facebook has recently started adding to my newsfeed. I can now see how utterly consumed I was by the whole Kean/Anderson stuff in the early days of Venkys' tenure. It was without question affecting my mental health and I'm sure did contribute in a small way to my own marriage breaking down. It didn't help that my brother in law actually knew Kean personally so there was no escaping the odious two hat.

Much as I love Rovers it is still important to keep things in perspective, and if you yourself recognise that it is affecting you to that extent it is probably affecting you even worse than you think it is.

It isn't worth it.
