  1. Walsall v Rovers

    Shrewsbury have had a bit of a dip but make no mistake, top three are by far the best teams in this division. The rest are pretty poor.
  2. Walsall v Rovers

    Well, it wouldn't be Rovers if we didn't concede at least one. I was stunned that we kept a clean sheet on Monday. Another goal needed now, as we know we can't trust our defence.
  3. Walsall v Rovers

    Whatever finally got Graham motivated has been a huge benefit to Rovers
  4. I agree, he's been a great player for us over the years and his consistent record of assists speaks for itself. For whatever reason it just hasn't worked out for him this season, which is a shame as I still think he has the means to be effective even if we aren't playing with wide players. Entirely possible it is just a confidence thing, but it's a shame either way as along with Evans he's one of the bigger earners who I would have expected more out of this season. I imagine he'll end up back in Scotland if he continues playing as I can't imagine we'll be offering him an extension whether we go up or not.
  5. Fairly sure Mulgrew and Graham would definitely be two of the players who felt like they should be playing in a higher division and weren't part of the bigger problem. In Charlie's case fair enough, Graham less so. Seems like it was only around December time that Graham finally stopped sulking and started getting on with it, maybe after realising nobody else was interested in him and his best chance of keeping his current wage would be for us to renew his contract if we got promoted and he played a big part in it. Mulgrew his been superb from day one so credit to him. We all know he's too good for this division but he's taken on the challenge and been a game changer for us on numerous occasions. Wouldn't surprise me if Conway was one of those wanting out. Has been poor this season. Could just be that his legs have gone, but he's never been a pacy player so I'm not convinced. Seems more like he's just not there mentally this season.
  6. Rovers v Bury

    More importantly whose agent was involved?
  7. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    The difference being, in theory, that those sides are more likely to come at us and leave gaps to exploit. We seem to find teams that sit back very difficult to break down. Our lack of overall pace doesn't help in that regard, and being vulnerable to set-pieces and counter attacks can cause problems as well. Oddly I'm more confident about facing Wigan than I was of facing Bury.
  8. Automatic promotion

    In fairness even if they completely collapsed and ended up 7th or 8th that would still be a huge improvement on their pre-season expectations. Mind-boggling that any of their fans would boo considering they were supposed to be battling relegation this season.
  9. Automatic promotion

    Fair play to Hurst for telling it like it is, but at the same time he risks alienating the players and a decent section of the fanbase all at once. It might have been smarter to wait until the season was over and everything was done before making those kinds of comments, but personally I'm glad that he didn't wait
  10. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    The one thing I will say for us is that even though we play poorly against average teams, we also seem to drag better teams down to that same level when they play us. We rarely dominate or get dominated, we force the game onto a level playing field and tend to beat teams by having superior players who make a difference. Maybe that's the plan?
  11. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    To be fair I think most of them are from Roversmad, so, it is what it is. There's only about a dozen posters on there anyway, so just leave them to it. I honestly don't care what they have to say about us, chances are we won't be in the same league as them next year anyway.
  12. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    Apparently there were boos tonight after their match ended considering their overachievement this season, that really is pathetic. If you listened to some posters on here you'd assume Rovers fans invented booing and had it copyrighted, but no, turns out other clubs fans do it as well. In Shrewsbury's case it's really poor form though. It's not like they have our budget or resources, the fact they're competing with us at all is admirable. Manager also questioning why their attendances are so low when they're in the midst of an unexpected promotion push...
  13. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    Just noticed Shrewsbury's forum has contracted the Saxoman virus a bad night for them indeed.
  14. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    Fantastic result which means our destiny is now officially back in our own hands. Let's make it last for longer than one game this time.
  15. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    1-1 is great, 1-2 even better... come on Gills!
