Fair point Chaddy , think JB summed it up well on twitter  Link   Imagine the negotiations between Venkys and Levy. Insane. Levy: We will give you 10m. 2m upfront, 8m when we win the le

So he got more points in February than Tony Mowbray did , manager material?

Fair enough, if you've got a problem with his off the field antics and the celebrity nature of his girlfriend, I think a lot of people are re-writing history about Dack here. Barring a couple of

Coldest I've ever been was definitely that home game vs Brum. My jeans were almost frozen solid by the end of the game & I could hardly walk down the steps in the BBE at the end because my knees were so cold - didn't help throwing away a 2-0 lead!

I always used to scoff at people wearing thermals - I'm Northern, we're hard, they're for soft southern panisies. That game prompted my to go & buy a set for future games in freezing temperatures! I now don't care, I'm never being that cold again. If that makes me a soft southern shandy supping pansy, then so be it! 🥶😄

Being sat down doesn't help in that respect. Previously you could always move around a bit to keep warm.

That's true. The AJBell watching Sale is freezing at the best of times but you can shift position if you're in the end stands.

Birmingham at home last (or the year before) Christmas was a horrible one 

Agreed, that one always comes to mind. I'd never seen the stands so empty at half time before.

An evening game around Xmas sometime in the 1990s I think was the coldest for me. Minus 5 sticks in my mind but it must have been closer to minus 10. A friend of ours who didn't follow football came with us. He was on holiday from his job in Saudi Arabia. I nearly died of cold. He didn't complain.

Coldest Oldham away 1981. Open end I think I froze to the floor and didn’t break free till spring

My wife started to get interested in watching, a trip to Oldham, as above, soon cured her.

Might that have been an evening game, Boxing Day 95 vs Man City?  That'd win my vote, the car reckoned something like -7 as we left it.

People huddled together on the concourse for warmth, I really didn't want to go back to my seat.

A City supporting mate of mine often mentions that one to me!

Wimbledon away in the League One season is genuinely the coldest I have ever been in my life. Was during the "Beast from the East", think it was about -5c but felt more like -10c with the wind chill.

It was a cold night - I'm still amazed they managed to keep the game on.

Good Night though!

I went to the winter Olympics in Pyongchang that year. That was when they had to cancel events because it was too cold even for winter sports

This is the first time 'Bradley' or 'Dack' has appeared this page! Lads, there's a nostalgia thread for all things 20th Century Rovers!

Is it just me or does anyone else still not know where Dack is supposed to play in this system? There doesn't seem to be a place for a goal-scoring #10 other than starting way too far back...

That's a great shout. It was bitterly cold, certainly the coldest have been watching Rovers but a few weeks earlier we were scheduled to play Gillingham away and the game was called off a few hours before. We were on the train to London when we heard and had a scheduled return so we scoured the games on in London and decided to go to Barnet v Wycombe. That was seriously cold and it was only on the train back that I got some feeling back in my extremeties. 😃😃😃
