  1. Rovers v Wigan

    Tbh it didn't feel like we sat back - Wigan threw on extra forwards. First goal is all about the bounce - could have gone safe when it dropped or from either deflection. Second goal is just shocking - keeper has to follow the path of the ball. Nuttall/Antonsson were attacking changes but Nuttall didn't win a ball. Pity - thought we were the better team and battled well but annoyed to only get a draw considering the equalizer.
  2. Rovers v Wigan

    Was that Rovers doing a thorough half time warmup?
  3. Walsall v Rovers

    Which still leaves me wondering as to why our defenders aren't protecting him? Put Nelsen and Samba in front of him and he'd instantly look like a better keeper... 🤔
  4. Walsall v Rovers

    Agreed but does he feel obliged to come as our defenders aren't dominant in the air To quote a famous (fictitious) politician "faults on both sides"
  5. Walsall v Rovers

    Not sure either just how "commanding" our defenders are on crosses. Easier to stay on the line IF our defenders were a little more dominant in the air.
  6. Dominic Samuel

    Thought that Samuel and Antonsson worked well earlier in the season. Think he does a lot right when i have seen him as sub but obviously a tough job to come on for DG when the team is already nervous. Decent enough return first half of season and good enough with the other bits whenever i have seen him for L1 and possibly mid championship but needs players pushing forward in support.
  7. Walsall v Rovers

    Not unique to Raya unless comparing to De Gea (now) or Courtois... Think we are a bit harsh - he has made many great saves to prevent goals during the season so far. Not exactly helped by shoddy defending either especially on corners. Best keeper we have had since Robbo imo although he has work to do on kicking, crosses and communication with defenders.
  8. Plymouth Away - 3rd February 2018

    By definition if TM is confident in His SQUAD then he will make changes to optimize the team for each game.
  9. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Think Nyambe can be added to that list - did "ok" there against whoever it was (?)
  10. VAR

    Strange that the system isn't being used to punish divers and so forth - only to check decisions that affect betting - sorry i mean of course ensuring that results are correct in accordance with the spirit of fair play 
  11. Jason Lowe set to return

    How often will those 3 be available at the time? For me - Whittingham & Smallwood is first choice but i have zero faith in Evans being fit when required let alone in form... Also frees up Nyambe as backup CH as i think TM has realized that Ward is just too slow for this team/league.
  12. Jason Lowe set to return

    Perhaps TM just wants a pro who play when RS is suspended, Evans/Whittingham injured and so forth? Think most on here wouldn't want Tomlinson/Travis as a starting pair. May also suggest Lenihan is further away from fitness than we hoped...
  13. The January 2018 transfer thread

    Interesting that the manager we all(ish) wanted takes a player we rate as beyond shite - maybe we should give him j lo's number 🤔
  14. Premier League Stuff

    Who signed the players because tbh they have bought a mix of mediocrity and #*@$ in the last 2 years...
