  2. Harry Chapman will be on this list in a few years. Remember James Thomas bursting onto the scene relatively early in our 2001 promotion campaign and scoring a few goals, think he played most of his time in the 4th/3rd division after that season. Jimmy Corbett was another one who came in around 1998 from Gillingham for a million quid and never did anything, hampered by injuries. Maceo Rigters arriving after being top goalscorer in the 2007 Euro U21 championships is another, think he scrored a ridiculous overhead kick against England. I don't even know what happened to him after he left.

    Opinions on Mike Newell

    I loved Newell. Perfect foil for Speedie during our promotion in 92, and also to Shearer for the following two years. It's quite suprising that although a key member of the squad, he only managed two starts, and didn't score once in our title winning season. Hat trick in the champions league too, can't imagine many more Rovers players will ever achieve that feat!

    Yeah, played one game away at West Ham in the 94-95 season. Looked very average.

    Means the Premier league would have 23 teams next season. That's just odd. All the other leagues would tally up with promoted teams replacing promoted teams.

    BBC Prem top 10 goalkeepers

    I'm sure many people have, about various goalkeepers who didn't make the cut. I think the key is not to take these sort of shows too seriously.

    BBC Prem top 10 goalkeepers

    I watched the captain one and Shearer got slapped down for having the nerve to suggest Tim Sherwood over Wes Morgan.

    We played in the Charity Shield in 1928 too after our last FA Cup win...

    Funnily enough I've just read an article on South Shields taking legal action, they are 12 points clear and have apparently invested a lot this season to achieve that goal. Could all get a bit messy this.

    No way will that happen any higher up. Read the other day that the national league were on about ending there season now but with all results standing, so Barrow would get promoted.

    Rovers vs Stoke. Fifa 20

    It was personal preference, as they have set it up so every player in the game is "85" rated, so it doesn't put clubs like Accy or Orient at a disadvantage.

    Republic of Ireland 11

    Brotherston was Northern Irish, unless your going for a combined team there? Remember really routing for Ireland at USA 94 with no home nations present, that Ray Houghton goal against Italy.

    I got caught up in the excitement of that last night too I have to admit. Was quite nervous in that closing stretch! Although it's probably because it was Stoke 😂

    Rovers best ever Premier League 11

    I think obviously the 94-95 will make up the core of the side, I have tried to add a few players in that I think would have been upgrades to what we had at the time. Friedel Berg Hendry Nelson Le Saux Ripley Tugay Sherwood Duff Shearer Santa Cruz
