  1. I'm not worried. These owners have paid the bills come what may, even through the pandemic. And seem to be happy to sanction new signings to bolster the defence during this window. You and your ilk have held Derby up as the way to create success in this league - yeah, sell the ground to the owners for 50 million quid, yeah sign Rooney on a deal with a betting company for the 32 shirt number Derby can't even pay December's wages despite all of their dodgy FFP swerves and supposedly new owners. People need to stop over-analysing what might happen after the pandemic and think mor
  2. Strangely none of the remainer rags so heavily quoted in this thread are running stories about chaos at the channel ports, and the BBC have moved their cameras somewhere else. Because the only chaos there was caused by a cynical political stunt by Macron, desperate to divert attention away from the shit show going on back at home. 516 vaccinations in France, a week after the EU was bounced into action as Britain approached 1 million - Germany has managed quarter of a million. Macron is toast when the French go to the polls next year imo. He and his LREM party came from nowhere
  3. In which case neither is any opinion on this website, including yours. Why get angry? Yet another example of the superiority complex which is evident all over this forum. As you used to write the LET fan column I'm really surprised that you are attacking fellow Rovers fans like this. They are as entitled to their views as you are to yours.
  4. If only you had spelt it correctly (unless you were intentionally merging sceptical with skeletal, in which case the post of the year trophy is waiting ?)
  5. I just don't understand the hate here (except that it's from the usual suspects who need a target). His terrifying injury happened in this calendar year!! How many of his critics would be bouncing back to work full steam ahead after having part of your face and skull rebuilt? But Evans did bounce back - his comeback game in June he was MOTM against Bristol City, and scored a goal. And then fractures his big toe. Now that's apparently his fault because he's "injury prone" and "saving himself for NI" Really?
  6. I certainly won’t be subscribing to BT Sports but would have dropped a fiver to iFollow to watch That's what you said, and is specific to this game. BT Sport don't tend to broadcast any of our other U23 or U18 matches.
  7. iFollow is owned by EFL. This is the FA Cup and BT have the rights. So no, Rovers couldn't have streamed it.
  8. You also said constantly throughout the first lockdown that football should never have restarted last season. So according to you, not a single professional match should have been played since March. If the world had listened to you, football would no longer exist. And using the same logic neither would cricket, golf, cycling, motor racing, horse racing, rugby union, rugby league, athletics, swimming, snooker, darts or international chess tournaments. In the face of incredible government incompetence (not just in this country) many sports governing bodies deserve a lot of cred
  9. Seriously?! How many No2 keepers do you want? What have Pears and Stergiakis done so wrong in their first couple of weeks?
  10. And there you have it. The Labour Party is probably going to break apart over this. It will take years for the divisions to settle down, by which time the bit which is still electable will probably sit somewhere close to Cameron's coalition on the left-right spectrum.
  11. Why does it matter what Hodge or Rayner think or say? The Equality and Human Rights Commission report couldn't be clearer, that's what really matters here. You've always tried to deny this issue and brush it under the carpet, but the EHRC have rolled the carpet back and exposed a deeply unpleasant and rotten underlay.
  12. Yawn. But congratulations on bringing "relegation form" into the discussion, with 40 out of 46 games still to be played.
  13. Moved from the Transfer thread, cos probably worth its own space I think the revamp of the goalkeeping department is really interesting. It's important to look at the ages of the players. Kaminski 27. Pears 22. Stergiakis and Hilton 21. Eastham 19. Had Pears been brought in before Stergiakis, I'm not sure you'd be questioning [from original post in transfer thread] either signing, because we'd all have assumed Pears was automatic 2nd choice to Kaminski and then the Greek lad was just a cheap low risk punt for some time in the future. Now suddenly there's a clear No1 who is

Now suddenly there's a clear No1 who is 5 years older than any of the other keepers, but the battle to be No2 is going to be intense. Compared to the goa
