    Rovers v Birmingham-Saturday ,December 15th

    Difficult game but one we should go out to win. When playing at home i feel this is our strongest line up and it’s what I would play on Saturday: Raya Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Bell Reed Evans Rothwell Dack Conway Graham If in form would have Armstrong over Conway but been unimpressed with him lately so would go with Conway.

    Think they just go in shirt number order, hope your right though!

    Middlesborough away Sat 8th Dec

    Actually think this is a crucial game for us, a win would see us right on the edge of the top 6, a loss however and we could be 8 points off. Of course there’s still a lot of games and a lot of points to play for but as we enter this crucial peroid a win would set us up nicely and give us confidence for a difficult run of fixtures where we play a lot of promotion chasing teams. It’s gonna be difficult as we largely rely on the physicality of Graham up top and stated already by a few that is bread and butter to this Boro team. Really think it’s the kind of game we need Rothwell in as he gives us creativity and is always looking to run with the ball. Would also drop Evans for this game and partner reed with smalling in the middle to give us an added physicality in that area. Come on rovers!

    Rovers vs Rotherham

    A point isn’t the end of the world like some people are acting but it is definitely a missed oppuntinuty. We’re punching above our weight to be challenging for the top 6 yet we could and probaly should be highier with How we’ve played. We seem to be the nearly men at the moment, getting close to the play offs but never actually getting there and cementing our position. There’s no doubt that getting into then playoffs would be a great achievement and experience for this squad that TM is building, as I imagine the plan for us is to push for promotion over the next 2 seasons after this one. A concern for me Is definetly DG. I love the man and he’s still an important player for us but he’s not getting the goals. I imagine a striker will be top of TM wish list and he’s already stated that he thinks we’re one short in that area so one to keep an eye on. I Also don’t think Dack has been up to standard in recent weeks despite some of the goals he has chipped in with, hopefully back to his best after the international break. On a more positive note great to see Brereton finally Show his worth. He’s changed the games for us in his last two outings and without him we’d be 3 points lesser off. He’s another young player who’s begginging to really contribute to the first 11, and even if we do lose Dack next summer our squad is looking strong with lots of options.

    ROVERS v qpr

    I personally wouldn’t actually start Dack, he’s an injury concern and has played a lot of games and has looked in need of a rest.!Palmer showed his ability in the hole at West Brom so would give him another oppuntinuty there. Sounds like Mulgrew will be fit so that’s a big plus. Would go with this team: Leuwiter Nyambe, Mulgrew, Williams, Bell Reed, Smallwood Rothwell, Palmer, Armstrong Graham subs: Fisher, Downing, Evans, Davenport, Bennett, Dack, Brereton

    Bolton vs Rovers

    These are the kinda results we’ve lacked in the championship in recent years, away from home, poor performance but able to nick a 1 nil win. We’re level with the playoffs which I think is about as good as anyone could have hoped for at this stage! Sure we could have had a couple of more points but we could have lost some too. When you look at the games we’ve had to play and the points we’ve managed to pick up it’s actually quite impressive. Feel like this team is still developing and there’s a lot more to come. Onwards and upwards.

    TM has his doubts on here, me included in some of his team selections. However the job he is doing atm is incredible, and this team is playing for him.
  8. If feel you have sky but with virgin which channel is it?
  9. Good to see Arma back but surprised to see Rothwell dropped, he's arguably been our best player recently. Having said that can see why TM has gone with that team, looks like he wants us to play on the counter with Arma and Palmers pace playing off Graham and Bennets energy in the middle to help break up the play.
  10. If Dack is fit he has to start imo, especially as I feel this will be a tough game for us. Bristol city are a decent team and are coming off the back of an impressive win at Swansea and also boast one of the most inform strikers atm in Weimann. A point would be a good result for us. Would play Brereton as he will be raring to get off to a good start and will have a point to prove, he will also give us a valuable counter attacking option. Id go for: Raya Nymabe - Lenihan - Mulgrew - Bell Bennett - Evans Palmer - Dack - Rothwell Brereton Subs: Leuwitter, Smallwood, Travis, Reed, Armstrong, Conway, Graham

    Loan Window

    No doubt that Bereton is a risk at 6 Million, its a lot of money for us especially when looking at our financial outlay on players over the past couple of years. But I personally think he has the attributes to be a class signing for us and can replace DG as the first choice striker. He's 6'3 and has got pace to burn, which are attributes which are rarely both possessed by a striker. Its also worth noting that he has only just turned 19, plenty of time to develop into a top class striker and under the Guidance of TM and players such as Danny Graham I think he will do that. Along with that he is clearly a player who fits TM philosophy of working hard for the team. The challenge for him will be if he can have an immediate impact on the team now, part of me would actually like to see him start on sunday.

    Reed, would be a really good signing, box to box midfieldier whose good on the ball and got abit of everything. Would hope there's an option for a perm deal. Wonder who the 2nd player is, doesn't sound like Rodwell is a deal that is close so most likely not him.
  13. TruRover


    Will do well to get a point imo tonight with that team. Big night for Rothwell.
  14. TruRover


    We should be winning this imo and if we do it would cap a great start to the season and leave us with no pressure heading into the Brentford game which will be difficult, and will probably be the best indication so far to us fans of how far we can go this season. However we've got reading to get past first, I cant help but think this is one of those classic Rovers games which we get a disappointing result in. Hope I'm wrong. Raya Nyambe - Lenihan - Mulgrew - Bell Travis - Evans Palmer - Dack - Armstrong Graham

    Bradley Dack

    If Dack continues to be a success in the championship there is no doubt that he is worth 20 million. We will do well to keep him for next season imo.
