  1. Walsall v Rovers

    Just watched it again. Didn’t go out of the area but Payne was much slower in reacting to the second ball than the player he was supposedly marking. Three sloppy moments one after another.
  2. Walsall v Rovers

    While crosses are the weakest part of Raya’s game, I think it’s a tad unfair to pin their goal entirely on him; it’s not like he dropped it on the goal line. Better if he’d have caught it obviously but there were a lot of bodies there and he did get something on it, taking it out of the penalty area. Whoever was out back wasn’t alive to it, giving their guy a free cross, and the defending of the ball in was pathetic. Graham idly flicking his leg up backwards in his own six-yard box is a bit of a contrast with Hendry heading one rolling on the ground or stopping a pile-driver with his nads. Weak all-round.

    I was just looking at the table as it was mid-Oct and Plymouth were bottom, now in the top 6. Their recovery has been just as good as ours
  4. Billy Wilson RIP

    My first team was Blacklaw, Newton, Wilson, Hunter, Mulvaney, Knighton, Connelly, Metcalfe, Martin, Rogers, Hill, sub Darling.

    Samuels was rubbish but then most of the team were 2nd half. Couple of good saves from Peter Sutcliffe when they were needed but in truth he didn’t have a lot to do despite our inability to keep the ball.

    For 44 mins that was a cracking performance. Graham played the best half he has all season, the kind of dominant target man hit we have been waiting for. I have to say I think Payne brings us something that Dack hasn't been for the last month, and Armstrong has been a handful, pity he hit the bar. Even Evans has been a massive upgrade on last week. Win this 4-1

    Raya flap but I thought it was a pisspoor attempt by Graham to defend the ball back in.

    Or whoever....

    Perhaps Mendez is a global super agent and Anderson isn’t because Mendez had the brains to appoint a good manager to make the plan work. Once a spiv, always a spiv.

    I agree with that 100%, he’s a poacher with pace.
  11. Rovers v Bury

    Pies haven’t been the same since we let Kenyon go
  12. Rovers v Bury

    Changing the subject slightly, I was in my Jackman book today and more than a bit surprised to see that Gordon Lee’s 3rd Div champions team - which I remember as being good all over the park - won only two of the last 8 games of the season, losing one and drawing five. Just goes to show that when you go up, nobody cares how you got there.
  13. Rovers v Bury

    You may be right, but personally I think a guy who has managed 600+ league games and whose team currently sit top of the division deserves a bit of respect. I think it cannot be argued that the changes he makes during games, usually including formation change with several players changing positions, have worked extremely well of late. Yes, if we could play like that for 90 mins and win every game 6-0, that would be even better. Tony isn’t a great tactician but he has brought some damned good players in for relative peanuts, the latest being Armstrong who already has 4 compared to the 1 in 17 he got under whoever manages Bolton. That lad’s goals might be what gets us over the line, no matter what formation we play.
  14. Rovers v Bury

    You could have two VAR replays to fill the time while he lumbers up from the back
  15. Rovers v Bury

    Agreed, and I’d say the same for Dack for any knockdowns. Corners are the sort of thing Bennett should be doing, as he certainly isn’t going to score being on the receiving end.
