The matchday announcer (the annoying one) say Ma-glore. I’ve always thought it was Ma-gloyer.

I'll never forget Nicky Banger being described as Bain-ger. Come on! It's not Baingers & Mash is it?

As for Cockburn, that's certainly no Nirvana.

Kind of the rule anywhere decent in my experience.

Keep it well covered, or expect Fosters in a plastic pot.

I don’t wear colours myself, but that was the only place in a city centre I’ve been for a long time where they made a lad who was with us wear his top inside out!

Personally I think this could be a game where this young lad might come unstuck and I hope it doesn't have a long term effect on him. That nuihu and fletcher will be rubbing their hands. He looks decent young Magloire but I hope our over reliance doesn't get too much for him

I think it’s usually one or the other, but Fletcher been 50/50 (pulled out of Scotland squad, has Mulgrew yet btw?)

 

Nuhiu is shite, but Fletcher is a good aerial outlet.

 

If either of them are playing though and they work the long ball and set pieces well - I’ll be watching through my hands...

 

At least it’s not likely to be Mulgrew and Rolls Royce there cowering.

 

Luckily Bruce isn’t known for his research, so may not have worked that out - he focuses more on his own side.

Reed/Travis buzzing around the second ball and Nyambe clearing up the flick ons should see us near enough right in open play if we go with the same team.

 

Just don’t give away any fouls.

At all.

Both Fletcher and Nuhiu started at Bolton due to conditions and the fact we have just three for strikers, expect that to continue tomorrow.

We need to watch Dack and not give Mulgrew any dead ball situations around the box given his delivery and potency.

Different animal to what you faced in December, our best goalkeeper is playing and Hutchinson is back, both deemed surplus to requirements under our previous manager.

The game at yours was the straw which broke the supporters back with the manager, he cause Forestieri to get injured and left him on.

Safe trip over to all.

You seem to rate the whole Rovers team and defend them every week, so I won't take your writing as gospel. However I am not sure which way you are predicting this. Sheff Weds are a better side than us, they will beat us. End of. Yes we beat them 4-2 when they had a terrible manager, but their far better than us with a proper manager.

Have you watched Wednesday since we beat them? How would you say they have improved?

Dont think they have conceded in 6/7 games? That would be my guess.

Yes, I know the stats, was asking if he had watched them 

If you've watched one Steve Bruce team you've watched them all.

Organised, hard to break down, useful at set pieces and generally an average of 6 foot 3.

Yep, and mostly always 442. Similar to Hughes in that respect. 

Bruce knows the value of a quality defence and doesn't try to complicate things.

Their proper good at defending crosses and set pieces with a good structured back line but slow. In other words. They've not conceded in 7/8 games.

 

It's like asking if Rovers have played well recently even though the stats say we only had 1 point from 20+ before the Wigan game.
