And a repeat of the 1998 shootout, when a young David Dunn scored the last penalty for Rovers to win 4-2. Incidentally both teams missed a penalty during the game. A Shearer rarity when he ballooned one over the bar and Kenna had one saved in injury time.

I know I said don't fiddle with Saturday's team but I would really like to see Buckley and Davenport given proper chances.

Armstrong always wants to do well on home turf, and what harm if he puts himself in the shop window, 

Uhh, plenty of harm? He's our top scorer and we need him a lot more than we need a bit of money for flogging him.

Wonder if Armstrong is going to score a few own goals tonight to sabotage the team like he did on Saturday by waiting till Holtby was offside?

At no time have i written that Armstrong is trying to sabotage the team. He sure seemed to have a beef with Holtby. I have no inkling that Armstrong wants to leave and will pull a Duffy to do so.I think he'll want to shine for us in front of Newcastle fans.

I keep saying things like this as well, I told the missus yesterday that it was a glorious day to watch a Roses cricket match....

Rovers players to give it their all to impress against a Premier League side, lose anyway (possibly on penalties) then have too little left in the tank for Wycombe and balls that one up to (loss or draw).

There were murmurings that Newcastle wanted AA back. Wonder if there was anything in this and the reported '10 million' bid in for one of our players? Has looked a lil stroppy during preseason

Remember a load of us listening to the later stages of that at a mates house after 5 a side. He wasn't a rovers fan but we blagged him to put it on and all piled in when we were dropping him off.

Everybody asking who's that David Dunn !

I suspect it'd be Arma's dream to get back there some day, but given that we signed him for just £1.75m two seasons ago, I reckon Newcastle would be steering clear of paying upwards of £10m for him, as it would probably make their management look a bit silly. And while I'm at it, £10m? They can afford a bit more than that as far as we're concerned. £30m would be acceptable. 😊

Is there a steaming service for tonight?

Yes. Here: https://carabaocup.live/

If you buy a match pass, a fiver apiece goes to Rovers and Nuke, apparently. Daniela Ayala will need at least £15K a week, so your fiver will pay for 3.36 minutes of his time, assuming he's paid for every minute of the week, albeit before tax.

Good to see Dolan start.

I feel like Ritchie always scores past us. Almiron is pretty rapid too, which will be a problem.

No Evans? Would have liked to see Davenport and Buckley start

 Rovers 0. That's fixed it.

You take Armstrong out of that side with Dack also out and theres a massive lack of goal threat there.

Buckley and Wharton should have been given a game for me, possibly Davenport too.

If Evans is injured, this is why I'd get rid of him. He's probably one of our higher earners and we can't get 5 games on the trot out of him.

Probably trying the back 4 and Kaminski more understanding and use to playing together.

But presumably Williams and Bell are only keeping places warm for new signings themselves.
