    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    Managers get judged on their buys, he has had some successes (Dack, Armstrong for example) but Gallagher and Brereton have been disappointing. Overall I think TM has made some costly mistakes, Venkys did back him to do that but some players really need to take a hard look at themselves over the break because we need them to improve as I can't see anyway to recoup the spend. Grim stuff.

    Given the plight of Wigan I don't want to dump Venkys - last time I looked Rovers needed their cash. Mind you, if you know a reliable billionaire.......

    Time for many drinks. Keep safe distance though - like Rovers defending

    Painful week, where next I wonder with some of the team? As this season is effectively over it must be time to let some of the younger players have a chance? I'd even try a three at the back in the absence of any left-backs.

    So Bennett is going off, he actually played ok so far as well - ironic.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    Sat here, a son of the Red Rose from Blackburn, exiled in Bradford I have no love for Leeds (I discover via the Yorkshire Post that they are nicknamed the Peacocks), a history of corruption and cheating in the Revie years really set me against them. I learned to loathe them because they had one of the most talented squads in Div 1 but still felt it was right to injure opponents, swarm around the referee (first team to adopt that as a standard tactic) and even then Revie felt he needed to influence the opposition outside of the match (according to Gary Sprake - allegedly of course). I don't think we are strong enough to do them today but I don't care how we win - a scabby penalty, an own goal, I do not give a ****! Come on Rovers!

    I think Graham still has a bit left in his tank but only from the bench. I still hope Brereton could come good (he actually looks physically stronger) - I discount the red as just one of those things. Gallagher - wish he could learn more from Graham but he might be better in a 4-4-2 with somebody else on the wing.

    Totally agree, this match isn't one for the changes just yet. Plenty of subs to be used as well.

    TM is going to do it his way, which includes Bennett at LB, I suspect there isn't another option for him at the moment. Feel sorry for EB as he is taking a lot of stick trying to cover yet another position in the team that he isn't a natural for.

    That is a terrible libel, Revie bribed sheep is more believable as it was a key tool in his success.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Now that is a depressing end to the season.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Is Walton thick or what, how many wasted long balls?
  14. Roversider

    Barnsley v Rovers

    So is this a 4 4 2? Walton Nyambe Tosin Mulgrew Bennett Downing Johnson Rothwell Holtby Armstrong Samuel I suspect it may be a diamond 4 in mid Please let Walton not cock-up and Bennett redeem himself!

    Barnsley v Rovers

    The Bristol game had players on form - particularly Evans, the worst gaffe came from Walton which he repeated against Wigan. The Wigan game had most of the team out of sorts, a fair bit of that was to Wigan's credit but if Barnsley watched the videos (which they will have) they will want to harry the Rovers to put them off their game. Johnson should (in theory) be a logical choice but he looks unable to perform. Downing may be the best choice at LB with Davenport in midfield or vice versa. I'd stick with Walton and pray he sorts his game out. Up front Brereton and Armstrong definitely need to start with Holtby as the creative 10. The centre-backs pick themselves as does Nyambe. If Rankin-Costello is fit I would play him in midfield with Travis (who is hopefully fit). If Bennett plays it should be as right midfield. Poor sod deserves a run in a more natural position if he is picked.
