The new style appears to be tedious passing. Millwall have fallen into the Mowbray trap and are doing the same. I blame both brexit and global warming.

maybe it’s a venky thing and I bet it’s tax deductible. Not that I have any accountant qualifications.

Stunning goal aside we’ve been second best

Need to start offering something up front and Buckley looking weak 

 

He’s looked weak in every minute he’s played. Way way out his depth. Great talent but rovers first 11 isn’t the way to harbour it at the moment. Needs a loan

Absolute paint drying football here at home with Mowbray.

A footballer should make it 2-0 there... unfortunately for us the chance fell to Elliott Bennett.

Doing ok at the back but with no players over 6 foot, we need to stop launching the ball forward and keep it on the deck. Lucky to be 1-0 up.

0-0 performance right now. 1-0 would be a great result if it stays like this.

What's the crowd like?

Like the game - quiet, slow and uninspired. 

Vocal support in the BBE quiet.

A lucky brilliant shot and a scuff way wide aside we haven't created much upfront but have looked fairly untroubled at the back.

It's certainly one of those games where you wish you were sat in the sun soaked side of the ground.

Lucky? He called for it, Cunningham did a perfect lay-off and Williams hit it sweetly, exactly where he was aiming. Best Rovers goal for ages.

Graham left the half time warm up to have photos with fans at the front of the BBE - including holding someone’s baby!

Goodbye...?

Who as full backs: Tosin and Cunningham?

Must have been a ruse. We’ve played Williams, Lenny and Tosin in a three and used wing backs.

Sparse and flat.

Pretty dull this, like all other home games so far this season. There’s such a lack of quality on show from both sides which means we could win this, but yeah it’s dull.

Btw - where’s that tacky small-time goal music come from? Thought we were past that stage.

Armstrong just looks lazy and uninspired. We have been really poor going forward, midtfield pairing of Downing, Johnson and Buckley not working. Appart from a sweet goal nothing is happening. 

At least we are ahead, but I cant phantom why Buckley/Downing is ahead of Travis/Rothwell

If it wasn't lucky he wouldn't balloon 99.9% of the rest of his career shots into the stands 🤯

Phases, come on mate, that's not a formation you use, that's a reactionary change. The odd "phase" here and there is hardly a tried and trusted formation. 

As for Downing, that could be a fair whack of running about for him, and with Buckley as well in there, that's a lot of dirty work left to do too. Either that or Johnson is a very busy boy. 

It may well be a surprising masterstroke but I don't think anyone can say it is not unusual for us or risky. 

We don’t always start in that formation but at least 3 times - vs Sheffield United, vs Cardiff at home - we’ve gone to that setup.

Give over indeed.

Right idea bringing Buckley off 

Yeah, but guess what. Looks like Dack is up front and Gally right.

From Sharpe:

Rovers are going with Bradley Dack as a false No.9, Armstrong to his left, Gallagher to the right.

Jesus fecking Christ Tony. 

Tony and his bants. What a card.
