I think in the history of posting game threads, this is the quickest new thread. What a game... what a team! Such anticipation! 😬

The home cutouts are already in their seats, relishing such a divine opportunity to vanquish infidels, set all things awright, and Tony is sure to be himself again. That’s all we know for sure.

Me too. Not Bothered anymore. Mowbray and his merry band of wasters have sucked all the interest out of the club for me.

I have some morbid curiosity about the line-up but that's about it. If Samuel starts again I expect a new contract is imminent for him.

I guess I’m glad I chose not to pay for iFollow 

it’s hard enough just watching the bbc game thread, holding my breath, feeling the pit in my stomach, dreading the next post.

I won't be watching, but I will keep an eye on the line up, if Christian Walton starts this match.......

Hahaha..When I saw the title of this thread, I assumed it was referring to what I will be doing, instead of watching paint dry!

You can't beat a good book...

I can't lie, I was considering posting something very similar and sarcasm-laden, for this game. But I thought I'd be an optimist and wait til it really wasn't possible.

One of the cut-outs is Dr Who. I hope he's here to fix the timeline.

Just for fun (y’all forgive me if I don’t put the players in the right formation:

Hilton
JR-C Nyambe Lenihan Hart 

Rothwell Chapman Davenport Travis
Armstrong Brereton

This is a must keep the squad and bank manager happy game.

Play all the oldies, has-beens and never-will-be for a bonus appearance wage bounce and % split

Bennett has again committed to paying Mrs M. for the half-time Lemon Drizzle cake.

Tony is borrowing a deckchair from Venus and wonders where Waggot is.

Chance to blood some youngsters and see what we're working with next season. I therefore expect Bennett in goal, Gallagher playing RWB and Mulgrew as a wide forward and Bradley Orr as false 9.

Me too until Mowbray is gone I cannot be bothered watching the same stagnant non styled puzzling crap dished up

We'll probably win this pretty comfortably because nobody cares.

We’ll probably lose, and still nobody cares.

Ya, I have spent over 50 euro watching our games since we came back. The Armstrong goal alone against Cardiff almost makes it worthwhile, but I doubt I will watch anymore now that we have died off with a whimper.

Like it. Would probably still play Tosin (if we have 10% hope of seeing him again next year). I think Chapman is DOA.

Would look to play:

                       Hilton

Nyambe - Lenihan - Tosin - JRC

            Davenport - Travis

   Holtby - Rothwell - Armstrong

            Gallagher/Brereton 

Every player (Barring Tosin) under contract next season, needs to play and not classed as dead wood (unless they cost £5m+). Carter, Buckley, Butterworth filling and coming off the bench.

Of course I believe we're more likely to see Downing, Mulgrew, Smallwood, Graham, Walton, Samuel, Bennett, Johnson and Hart.

But either way, I actually don't care now.

To be honest... i actually think the team I picked above would beat any of Mowbrays team selection 8 times out of 10 all season.

We'll win the last couple in comfortable fashion it was only really the dead rubbers at the end of last season that glossed over the cracks and gave a skewed view to some in anticipation for this season.

Once it started it was obvious nothing much had changed and that was with a fit Bradley Dack.

Rovers  4   Reading  1

I’m not so quick to give Rovers the win over either of these clubs. Reading’s form has been better, and Luton, fighting for survival, have already beat us at our house.

I think very few will care about this game other than Mowbray.

Mowbray will, IMO, field a team that will all be about self preservation.

Sadly, I think Rovers will win their last two games to paper over the cracks and allow Mowbray to bang on about a season of progress and what would have been without the injury to Dack 

I'll take two humiliations in our last two games if it secures the departure of Mowbray.

The problem is even if we do get humiliated in the last two games Mowbray will not be pushed.
