  1. Neil Yardley and Warren Lucy. Neil was with Radio Rovers for years, and I believe he has been associated with the broadcast side of the club - initially through his parents since the mid 90's in one form or another. I was delighted to see him involved with iFollow Rovers in August 2017, after having not been there in the beginning. Neil makes it so much more special being a Rovers-fan abroad - and player/staff too, I'm sure. He is quite simply a superb journalist with incredible people skills. The man could easily have become a psychiatrist. He asks just the right questions, and strikes a perfect balance too - always knowing how to bring out the best of people, and make them feel at ease. Warren turned up on June 27th 2017, as part of the move to iFollow, taking over from Edward Bretherton. I’ve come to enjoy his honest side-commentary, and he is not afraid to criticise the team.

    Lewis Travis

    I could probably be deemed naive for trusting anything a footballer says, but I think I've seen most of, if not all the interviews with every player we've signed for the past couple of years, and I don't think anyone have been this forward about his dedication to the club. Certainly not anyone else currently in the squad. I've lost count of the number of times I've heard "This is a good place for me now / at this point in my career" etc., so I though Travis' passion was a real breath of fresh air. And it mirrors what we've seen on the pitch from him as well. World class or not, any display of - or even encouragement of loyalty should at least be greeted with thumbs up from fans imho.

    This made my day! Travis has commitment and inspiration written all over him. He told Neil Yardley that Rovers is the only football club he wants to play for. No wonder he's a fan-favourite! He's humble, driven and quite mature for his age too. A class act, and the kind of player you really want to succeed. Hopefully the hard work he puts in will pay off with even more playtime this season.

    Stewart Downing

    That's true. And one assist in 39 appearances is indeed awful.

    Stewart Downing

    Ah, okay. Thanks! Let's hope there's non of that in our contract.

    Stewart Downing

    Blackburn Roverseas mentioned a rumour about a clause in his contract last year that kept Boro from starting him in more games, because that would have cost them a lot more.

    Stewart Downing

    I thought the most interesting part of the interview was when they briefly talked about Mowbray's target for the team this season, which Downing said was "at least Playoffs".
