  1. Rovers Reminiscences

    Sir Roger better than Brad? Fair enough but personally I think Brad is the best Rovers keeper in my lifetime and then I would struggle to separate Sir Roger, Terry Gennoe, Jim Arnold and Tim Flowers just behind him.
  2. Rovers Reminiscences

    In terms of English players Dixie Dean has to be worth a mention. I was way too young to have actually seen him play but my grandad said he was an unbelievable centre forward - the Alan Shearer of his day by all accounts. I attended a Merseyside derby at Goodison Park in 1980 as a 15 year old and was shocked when an old gentleman near us in the stand collapsed and died. It turned out to be none other than the great man himself. Tragically sad but fitting too I suppose. I can still name the Liverpool line-up from that game (they dominated English football with mainly these 12 players): Clemence, Neal, Hansen, Thompson, Alan Kennedy, Case, Souness, Ray Kennedy, McDermott, Johnson, Dalglish. Sub: Fairclough. Liverpool won 2-1 if I remember correctly.
  3. Rovers Reminiscences

    Most keepers of a certain age will tell you that Yashin totally revolutionised the art in the way he came off his line and dominated his penalty area. He also saved 150 penalties during his career - which in itself is remarkable.

  8. Friedel named New England manager

    I'm not defending that clown Ince here at all, but I always thought Brad forced the issue of a move to Villa rather than it being a Rovers decision? And while he was virtually irreplaceable, we did sign the England goalkeeper to replace him. There were lots of reasons to castigate Ince but I'm not convinced this was one of them.

  14. ROVERS VS WIGAN

    Not sure we supporters are really in a position to comment on this John. The ref obviously spoke to TM in a way that he disapproved of, and he has every right to speak out about it as it is important feedback for the development of the official in question.
