Sheffield united away- League cup

Why did you think that? Our first choice back 4 (what should be anyway), Dack...I think we took too many risks if anything. We've also dominated the game by the sounds of it, just gash at the back.

The only wtf inclusions are Leutwiler, Smallwood and arguably Evans (he's good enough for a cup game for me though, just not paired with Smallwood). I'd have benched Dack personally, and Cunningham, to keep them fresh.

Gash up front too when it comes to scoring.

Their second goal (without sound). 😞

Assuming William's got a shout to leave that?

Otherwise that's abysmal from him.

Ya that's fair enough. Still though, I think the two lads get unfair criticism when the likes of Armstrong and Leutwiler are arguably worse and more to blame 

Are you on the wind up? 😂

Leutweiler  was possibly unsighted for that but it's a soft goal nonetheless.

Yeah apart from the keeper and our engine room....

You honestly thought: great Mowbray is taking this one seriously?

We were already losing by the time I got out of work to know the lineup so I didn't think anything. But even with hindsight, playing 3 of his usual back 4 when we are light on the ground for quality there, and Dack, suggests he is taking it fairly seriously. Not that I particularly want him to. Dack shouldn't be playing, for me. If we end the game with an injury in the back 4 I'll also be annoyed.

But again. We are apparently dominating the play, so TM and the players are obviously taking it seriously. Just think playing Leuts is a mistake (wants to give everyone game time annoyingly). Keepers don't need resting unless injured. Ever.

I have a dream - a post Venky's dream. We will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old negro spritual:

I remember using that quote somewhere about the Walkers years back lol.

Completely disagree but respect your opinion.

Gallagher on and no Chapman or Travis? I’d have brought those two and Graham on at half time.

The Worthington Cup victory in Cardiff is one of my best memories in 60 years of supporting Rovers. We won't be going up this season so why don't we take these competitions seriously? 

Spot on Jim

Has Chapman knocked up his daughter or something??

Perhaps he's in Randy Rothwell's WhatsApp group?

Couldn't agree more , it is not just Rovers though most teams field weakened teams....

Gives the manager an excuse , I suppose..

Said a couple of weeks back on here that odds of reaching the playoff final are probably worse. Maybe slightly "tongue in cheek" but not entirely unfounded either under Mowbray's management.

What a cross from Armstrong. Perhaps he is a winger after all?

I think he was going for a shot :lol:;)

Yeah jeez, you never stopped spouting that sort of stuff.

Wonder if you did eat any humble pie regarding that crusade?
