    Rovers v Barnsley. Sat 28 Nov 3pm

    I thought Barnsley were a good side today. Well drilled, confident on the ball, hungry and forward driving the whole game. Rovers struggled to adapt throughout, although we looked a bit more relaxed when The Revenant Johnson came on. I half expected him to wrestle a bear. Kaminski is a god-send. Wharton looked assured and comfortable, Lenihan was dependable, Nyambe initially looked like Bambi but grew into the game. Bell looked good going forward but isn't really cut out to be a defender. Toogs Holtby worked ever so hard. Brereton was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet. Trybull did some neat passing but didn't shine, Arna showed great quality - what a finish! Douglas was knobbled and was doing fine up to that point. Yeah. Win ugly - not really - we won, fair and square, against a team that pressed high up the field, worked hard as a unit, huffed and puffed but apart from the quality strike for their goal didn't really show much. Fair and square. Three points to the Blue and White Army, thank ye very much.

    Barnsley seem up for this so far. More pressure on our goal than theirs at the moment. Douglas was knobbled early doors.

    Nah, it takes the pressure off him, if anything. If he gets a chance to come on with 20 mins left, he will have fresh legs, and hopefully something to prove.

    What's the highest level of football you have played?

    To be fair, some of the teams turning out on Sunday mornings at Pleasington featured some very decent footballers - the types who could manage two hard games in a weekend, having hammered through a Combination game on the Saturday afternoon... There were some awful cloggers too though, and the pitches at Pleasington didn't always help - I remember a horrible incident on the pitch nearest the cemetery gates a few years back, where a plodding centre half planted his leg in a deep divot / mole hole and practically tore it off (really bad compound fracture). Had to abandon that game, as no-one had the stomach to carry on. The only worse games for injuries were the Orphanage Cup, in the middle of the year when pitches could be bone dry and you got all the old stagers turning out for the first time in 20 years for their firm's teams.. pulled hamstrings, knee ligaments gone, dislocated shoulders, ankle sprains and some very very ugly beer guts (not injuries technically, but still awful to comprehend).

    What's the highest level of football you have played?

    I played briefly in the West Lancs League before going off to University in the 80s, where I was lucky enough to earn my colours as 1st team goalkeeper for a couple of years. I'd been too scrawny in my teens to have anyone take me seriously as a goalie, and it was only in my early 20s that I put on sufficient timber to carry off the role with any aplomb. Like Arbitro (Italiano for ref like!) I took up the whistle around then, and more seriously after breaking my leg whilst doing my Masters in Durham. Stopped refereeing after 25 years, in my early 50s and likewise having done hundreds if not thousands of games over the years. Did get to referee at Ewood in a few competitions (not pro though), and at Old Trafford (in a tournament) - running out onto Ewood through the tunnel and onto the pitch was very much a treasured highlight, that helped mend some of those less salubrious memories of Sunday mornings in Pleasington, which were mostly like this...

    Lewis Holtby

    Yup, Nick, Yup!

    Lewis Holtby

    Holtby has the credentials and quality to leave another beloved and indelible mark on the history of our club...a few years back some people were unimpressed by the signing of an ageing Turkish midfielder whose name escapes me (not!). That turned into an enduring love affair that still runs deep in the hearts of many a misty-eyed Rovers fan, didn't it? Just saying like, let's be thankful for what we've got and hope it goes even half as well here for Holtby as it did for the legendary Mr Terimoglou..

    Nobbers v Rovers, Tues 24 Nov 7.45pm

    We shouldn't get too carried away just because we beat a poor 10 man outfit from Bamber Bridge.. Remember, in the words of old Shakespeare, "One swallow, a summer doth not make" (or something like that).. But my goodness, it was great making North End swallow ;) Suck it up, nobbers! Onwards and hopefully upwards for the Rovers. COYB!

    Run em ragged till 70 mins then bring on some young hungry motivated playmakers from the bench would be my roll of the dice.. I guess we all anticipate TM shutting up shop at this point
