    Other football league 2020/21 season

    I used to go to Stanley way back when if Rovers were away. From seeing them play the likes of Runcorn FC Halton, Bishop Auckland and Gainsborough Trinity to where they are today is an incredible; they've maintained Football League status for 15 years now and appear well-cemented in the third tier.

    Championship Season 2020 - 2021

    Our home game v. Leeds meant for April just past was to be on a Friday night wasn't it?

    Feel so sorry for Gallagher.

    I don't know if any of that was addressed directly at me, but re: your last paragraph, I always go down the line of "I wouldn't want to live like them, they wouldn't want to live like me". I couldn't care less how someone appears or what they do so long as it isn't compulsory!

    I don't have any nor do I have any intention to, but I don't generally mind them; I just think unless you're like how@Dreams of 1995 sounded above and go all in they've really lost a lot of meaning. It seems like every man and his dog these days has a completely anonymous sleeve tattoo, which I don't quite get, but some of the personalised stuff which clearly has meaning to the wearer can look pretty good. I think a lot of it is a generational thing: back in the day obviously the only people with tattoos were ex army or prison, or something outside a 'normal' life. Nowadays it's as much a fashion as anything.

    Tier 2 ?

    By my understanding Tier 3 residents aren't supposed to travel outside of their own area though are they, so even if Rovers did decamp to, say, Southport, only those fans not living in Lancs, Greater Manchester etc. could realistically show up?

    I have no love at all for this government but they honestly wouldn't have won either way with Christmas - people will just do as they please regardless of what any law or official advice might have said. My one fear is what an absolute carnage Janaury and February will turn into. Couple that with the widespread traditional mental ill health problems the UK has in the early months of the year and it could be a very dismal price to pay for a couple of days off...

    Nobbers v Rovers, Tues 24 Nov 7.45pm

    I have been critical in the past of a more than one of our star performers tonight, but I am delighted to take it all back and then some. I have no idea at all what has happened to Brereton since March but I am struggling to recall such a noticable, sustained transformation in one of our players. He was utterly superb tonight, and well worthy of his goal (I'll go with clever finish over scuffed fluke!) and assist tonight. If Gallagher persists with how he has been since he came on on Saturday afternoon then I am also starting to feel optimistic about him. Didn't stop running all night and, for the first goal, did exactly what he should be doing when stuck out wide - using his combination of pace and strength to create opportunities. Would have loved for him to have bagged his goal at the end. Also delighted for Dolan tonight - had one hell of six months but I feel his goal tonight was a nice closure for his departure from North End, and also a fitting tribute to both his friend he lost and the sheer joy he has given us so far. Praise is due though to everyone involved tonight - Kaminski looks unlike anyone I've seen at Rovers post-Friedel, Douglas brought to the table what he was renowned for at Leeds, Wharton is more than holding his own so far, Lenihan had some fire about him - we need that, Trybull had his best game as a Rover, Holtby is basically Andrea Pirlo, Rothwell and Arma did what Rothwell and Arma do, Buckley and Davenport looked bright when they came on... It feels so good to type this with a beaming smile and absolutely nothing negative to say. Easily the game I've enjoyed the most since the summer restart. Now, please God, can we have some of that against Barnsley and not a rerun of Kenilworth Road...

    Well taken penalty too. 1-0. God we needed that.

    Some of our passes at the back have been a bit dodgy tonight, dread to think what Calamity Walton would have done with that head-height backpass just then!

    Feel for Gallagher. Scored a genuinely crucial goal to save us on Saturday and gets rewarded with another attempt at the role which has stunted him in just about every regard for the past season.

    Got his fifth booking of the season against Luton.
