    You can't beat a football ground

    From my grandmothers recollection, the bit between the Riverside & Darwen End was called the Spion Kop.

    The service in the bar at the bottom was first class 😉

    Where to drink in Bradford

    I had 'Saltaire?? Blonde' & a couple of Bradford ale's in the bottom bar, and summat similar in the Rose & Crown. Currently in Manchester at the Port St beer house.

    Previous Game: Brentford v Rovers. 7th May

    Just got back. Upset yep, right back to where I started but what a journey. One of the better things is our support, with us we will eventually get back. We can't do a thing about who owns us unfortunately, we got dealt a bad hand. It's been tough reading between the two forums & Twitter (especially the gloating) but that's football. We'll have our day in the sun again because that's what Rovers do, we have our time. Can't see an imminent return but when we do it'll be sweet. Stick together, travel in numbers. By Gum We'll Make It A Day.

    Rovers Trust/Action Group/Ians

    Well, I've just tried to log in to the RT site and it doesn't recognise me?? I still pay, receive emails etc but it won't let me in. Who can I contact there?

    Rovers Trust/Action Group/Ians

    Why can't all 7 be part of the board? All 7 have valid reasons to be elected and each have skills which will be useful. I haven't voted yet, I have 2/3 in mind & the fourth may be chosen on their election 'pledge'.

    Academy & U'21's

    It was something I heard today. If that's the case that it's for 3 years then all well & good.

    Academy & U'21's

    Has anyone heard that we are dropping our Academy rating at the end of the season? Talking to an academy coach at another club who says we are withdrawing 'expenses' for the players and therefore the parents are looking to go to other clubs.

    football analysis

    Twitter is a good source. Lots of high end coaches share their work or thoughts on way teams play.

    football analysis

    Soz, plus it gives you an understanding why certain things happen, e.g. Emnes coming off (apart from a strain) to shore up the left back because Emnes is an 'artist' not a soldier ( TM words). Rovers are lucky because they have a great back room staff (video analysis, recovery, dieticians etc). Hopefully TM will use these. I've seen some of the previous incumbents sessions (at a previous club) and he's a fraud, if my 12 year old was involved, I would go somewhere else with him. It also makes you think why subs are on the hour mark, (Cardiff on the horizon etc)

    football analysis

    Doing your coaching badges help. In a way. I decided to do mine after an Allardyce v Pulis game circa 6/7 years back when every goal kick went into a 20 yard square of 20 players. What I learned was patterns, technical aspects, tactics (opponents) and to take the emotion out of the game. Also, it shows the chancers in game who get jobs. I deliver 10 hours of coaching a week at grassroots level and it's an eye opener. If I had the chance of 40 hours a week, of professional standard, you could surely sort out a game plan, defensive, transitional, and attacking duties. Some of these managers/coaches rob a living. And a few on here will testify.

    Uddersfield Away

    Don't know where to start. That was probably the worst I've ever witnessed from a Rovers team. I can't fault the effort but the style & 'philosophy' is abysmal. I was embarrassed. The style or type of football is the image the manager wants to create, day in, day out at an excellent training centre. What the hell are they doing, seriously? We started time wasting in the first minute, with Steele dawdling over goalkicks. The game plan seemed to bypass the midfield by hoofing it up front for a 50/50, lose possession & defend for your lives. You can't do this, the amount of pressure it builds is unsustainable. Can anyone tell me what Akpan brings to the team? Is he a holding midfielder or a defensive midfielder? He makes wrong decision after wrong decision, he gets out of trouble half the time with his long legs, more athlete than footballer. The Town fullbacks played in our half, ours didn't want the ball. I teach my u12s to get wide & want the ball as soon as the keeper has control, this lot are scared. Whats the point of the warm ups? Quick sharp passing then in match it's either hoof or players not showing, it beggars belief. The poor right back Nyambe, he hadn't a chance, he had Feeney in front of him knowing he would either lose the ball if he overlapped or that he wouldn't support him in his defensive duties. He's on a hiding to nothing. Does that turnip coach the team how to cut out crosses? The fullbacks & wingers had a field day. It's a jolly at Brockhall. Why do you take off a striker for a 37 year old defender? He is prehistoric and I mean Coyle, he is robbing a living. I've watched the Rovers since 1980, and we have had some hidings, but that was a disgrace, football wise, it was like rugby union, playing for second balls and throw ins. I could rant more but I've probably bored you. Well done the players effort, well done the supporters. On a side note, Huddersfield, the town & people are buzzing, like we where before this lot came.
