  1. Rovers v Bury

    In all things you have to consider the score line - more room for Payne when Bury were chasing - would he have been as effective without the additional space ? Evans was a big disappointment tonight - as was Bennett as a wing back. I actually thought we started promisingly with three at the back - just let down by Evans and to a lesser extent Smallwood.
  2. Rovers v Bury

    Would have preferred a replay - but it is another game for them to play.
  3. Portsmouth v Rovers

    Did we look any better defensively when Lenihan came on and we went three at the back ?
  4. Portsmouth v Rovers

    Why ? With Payne and Armstrong starting we lack height throughout the team - so starting Williams makes sense from that perspective.
  5. Portsmouth v Rovers

    What would people think of Armstrong as lone striker ? Would totally change dynamic of team.

    Sorry did I quote you ?
  7. Plymouth Away - 3rd February 2018

    It is amazing that the world is still spinning. There are too many matches still to play for so many posters to be writing off the season. Any of the top 3 could lose key players to injury or suspension between now and the end of the season. The standard of refereeing is so poor - any of the teams could lose a key match down to a dodgy decision. We had one match where the team played poorly - and unlike other matches one of our class players (like Dack (heavily marked) or Mulgrew (injured)) didn't provide a spark of genius to get us a goal. People seem to forget that actually followed an exciting performance against Walsall. Am I depressed we got beat - and fallen further behind Shewsbury and Wigan - of course, but not ready to throw the towel in for automatic promotion yet like some other posters.

    Proved correct - hindsight is a wonderful thing isn't it. Before every match TMs selections have been questioned - then people either slip into the background when proved wrong - or come all self righteous when they think they are correct. It sounds like most players are playing poorly today with passes mis placed - don't see how Conway playing would make any difference. How was Smallwood playing ? Do you know he was taken of to avoid a yellow card - or that having played mid week he thought Evans might bring some energy ?

    Walsall ?
  10. Plymouth Away - 3rd February 2018

    Oh come on - he changed how many players for this match ? If you want to have a go at him - I would question the decision not to bring in a centre half - not for making one team change.

    I am sorry - but how can one player make such a difference ? If had played a defensive midfield player - then yes it would have been a negative signal - but playing a slightly more defensively aware winger is hardly going in with a negative mind set - it is giving the opposition some respect.

    Given his age we were always going to have to pay a fee unless Boro didn't offer him a new contract. Given his reliance on his explosive pace - it would have been a gamble buying him injured.

    I think we are about to see if our luck is turning. Just enough of an injury to put off clubs looking at Mulgrew - but nothing so bad it keeps him out for more than a couple of weeks. Lets be honest - based on his previous injury record - he has played a lot more than I hoped for. Personally I would agree on those asking for us to buy a tall centre half - what's Samba doing these days :-)
  14. Northampton

    I do wonder if that is part of the tactic - where we pick up the second ball in attacking midfield. Personally didn't think it was a bad performance overall - but got to give credit to them who defended with passion. Only Conway and Samuel were poor - though not too impressed with Armstrong on this showing. Was concerned when he put Dack into midfield - but I thought he actually did a good job - allowing Payne to play in his favoured position (though I would drop Conway in the next match for him) A bigger concern I felt - we are developing into a team of relatively small players - when playing a land of the giants team like Northampton we were at times bullied out of it (especially with yet another inept referee). Towards the end I was scared if they got a corner such was our general lack of height in the team.

    Or his agent just wanted too much money ?
