  1. Wimbledon away tickets

    Predicted sub-zero temperatures and no under-soil heating do not bode well for Tuesday. I'm pretty sure it'll be called off just as I get into Euston, if only as vengeance for the Rovers Wimbledon match being called off three minutes before kick off in 1993(?)
  2. Rovers v Oldham

    This is similar to the beginning of the season - bring new players in, play them in the wrong positions and the team, as a result, looks shambolic. We’ve just got to hope that history repeats itself and they quickly get back to winning ways.

    Another dream dies.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42712179
  4. Oxford away Tuesday

    Does anyone know if tickets will be available on the day from the Kassam? Isn't really clear on the website.
  5. Manager or Players to blame?

    That's absolute nonsense, Ward is our fifth choice centre half. 1. Mulgrew 2. Lenihan - injured 3. Downing - injured 4. Wharton - injured 5. Ward The stats tell you that we have the 3rd in terms of goals conceded in the division but only 16th on goals scored. If the strikers had done their job in several games this season we'd be in the top two. If you're 2-0 up at half time in this league, the game is over, but we always make ourselves vulnerable by failing to finish teams off. Blame who you want for the current situation (which I personally don't believe is that bad, given we are only two points off the play offs with two games in hand) but let's not ignore the facts.
  6. The one good thing that seems to have come out of this is that Mowbray is (at least) showing that he empathises with the supporters, and is trying to develop a good relationship with us. IMHO he's the first Venky's era (barfs) manager to make a genuine attempt to do that. I always felt that previous managers used Venky's as an excuse to fail, but he clearly understands that the backroom operation is a shambles but is determined to do well in spite of it.
  7. Shrewsbury Away

  8. Shrewsbury Away

    It wasn't like that against Bradford or Scunthorpe, we looked solid throughout.
  9. Shrewsbury Away

    We give the ball away far too cheaply, just invite pressure on ourselves constantly. Shrewsbury have had to do very little to win the ball back today.
  10. Shrewsbury Away

    1-0 Shrewsbury - scrappy goal
  11. Shrewsbury Away

    I'm quite happy with how it's going - we look solid, our midfield are competing well and we've got in behind them a couple of times. Just need to be patient and look to get some fresh legs on to test them half way through the second half. They are top of the league with only two points dropped all season!
  12. Scunthorpe United v ROVERS

    I think the general mood is harsh on Antonsson - he held the ball up very well last night, particularly in the first half when we were under the cosh. He's never going to be a fast, pacy striker who runs at defenders but the guy can finish. If TM had asked him to get into good scoring positions, to hold the ball up whenever possible, and to nick a goal, then no one can really argue that he didn't achieve that. He only played 16 games last year and will get fitter and more resilient. The only alternative we have at the moment is Graham, who hasn't really done enough to suggest he should be starting every game.

  14. Transfers Part 3

    Sam Gallagher - 1 goal in 31 games prior to joining Rovers.
  15. Transfers Part 3

    I swear down that is Luca Toni.
