Rovers v Hull

Recommended Posts

What team would everyone play on Tuesday night?

Walton

Nyambe Lenihan Adarabioyo Bell

Chapman Travis Davenport Downing

Graham Armstrong

Not ideal having Downing wide but in the absence of any competent wingers at least one of him and Armstrong will have to play there. Very much a pragmatic 442, not Armstrong as a number 10.

Johnson and Rankin Costello should be taken out. No more strikers out wide bollocks. No Samuel near the 18.

The team that should play and the team that will play are two different things.

For example, anyone with two working eyes knows that Sam Gallagher our wide is wrong, but it won’t stop him being selected there.

I think where that is concerned I’m at the ‘acceptance’ stage of grief.

Will it be on? If this Carries on it will be in doubt, imagine the pitch is under water today

The River Darwen is a mess today apparently.

If it goes ahead fasten your seatbelts it'll be a rollercoaster in front of barely 11k official att.

Rovers 0   Hull  0

And a hearty shrug of the shoulders.

I think we all know now, this match will be a bore as our esteemed manager will choose a team to negate Hull who are suddenly the best team in the UK with only Liverpool able to compete with them and only if they are lucky.

We therefore need to concentrate on defence leaving no one in midfield to create anything going forward.  Hull will score in the 70th or 75th minute.  Mowbray will panic and substitutes will come into play, leaving 4 out and out strikers in the mix but no one to create anything for them.

I am extremely fed up and don’t see a way out of it.

Very, very sadly, where I am too.

Whilst I am never usually in the mind for must win games, in my opinion we have to win this game if we want to be in the chasing pack for the play offs...

 

2-1 Rovers as Hull can't get a win from anywhere. 

 

'mon the blues!

Rovers were competitive vs. Fulham... a strong side, with the best scorer in the Championship in Mitrovic. 

I expect the team to be the same vs. Hull. Defending wasn’t bad at all. Sans Dack, Holtby, & Rothwell, scoring will be difficult. I see no reason to play Gallagher. Give the other youth a try.

I’d play 442. Back 5 picks itself, then...

Bennett Travis Downing JRC

Gallagher Armstrong 

Leut, Williams, Davenport, Buckley, Chapman, Brereton, Graham

One shot on target in about 75 mins at home is not competitive

There was one point on Saturday when Bell picked up the ball on the left with loads of space and I thought to myself, he will check back any second and go back again like he always does. He didnt, he proved me wrong, instead he ran forward and just straight off the pitch.

Face reality. We simply aren't good enough for the playoffs. Mid table side at best

I would only change Graham for Johnson and put Downing in the middle and JRC on the left with Arma with Graham upfront.

A least 4 posters have Bennett in their starting 11..  ..what is going on?  Does nobody realise we tend to do badly with him in the team?

When he is picked at full-back

Johnson was awful at weekend and needs to be dropped as hes way off the pace at the moment and his distribution is awful.  Gallagher needs to be dropped to. Give Chapman a chance and start with Graham and Armstrong uptop
