    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    Pathetic. Defensively, one of the worst performances I’ve seen at home. Shocking. Final third we look dangerous and when our high press works, it’s effective. But we’re so easily bullied. We’re going to have to rely on another 5-6 match winning run to get near the play offs before Christmas.

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    With Rothwell out it’s a toss up between Evans and Buckley. Buckley is still very raw. We need squad players like Evans to step up in evenings like these. Time to deliver.

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    Tough game tonight. Looking forward to it. To be taken seriously we’ve got to beat an in form team. On paper, Reading have no one particularly special in their ranks but you can’t argue with their start to the season. Holtby and Elliott should be able to do the damage. Win this, get back into the top 6 and then we can settle in for a big season.

    Rovers vs Reading at Virtual Ewood

    I sympathise and as someone who hasn’t financially lost out, it’s hard to properly judge. But the club were in a very difficult situation and made a judgement call. They would have angered people whatever they’d done. I don’t necessarily agree with the approach but equally I haven’t got a much better solution. You have to hope fans don’t take it too personally and can see the wider picture. If people choose to throw away their season tickets, fair enough. But punishing Waggott is only punishing the club.

    Harvey Elliott- let's enjoy this season together

    It’s interesting comparing him to Dolan. Dolan is a real talent and has exploded onto the scene. But you can see the difference between a promising youngster and a once in a generation talent. Elliott’s vision, decision making and composure is remarkable. To have that at 17 is frightening. Very fortunate to have him. Let’s enjoy it.

    Ben Brereton

    I don’t think anyone expected to see BB play this well 12 months ago. Let’s enjoy this run of form for what it is. The transfer fee will always hang around his neck but right now he’s one of our best players and that is not a sentence I expected to be writing after the first 18 months of his time here. Fair play to him.

    Coventry v ROVERS

    I broadly agree. Beating Coventry by 4 means little if you lose to Forest by 1. However, there have been plenty of games in the past against 10 men where we’ve failed to get a result. The fact that we’re consistently pumping the teams that we ‘should’ be beating is a good sign. Very intrigued to see if we can dispatch a better team in the same manner soon. Elliott may well be the difference maker.

    Coventry v ROVERS

    Very impressive performance. Brereton is was unplayable. Didn’t think we’d see this level of performance from him and also pleased to see him thrive out wide. Holbty and Elliott are showing that they’re capable of playing at a higher level. Let’s make the most of it. Bit disappointed with Gallagher’s effort levels. In comparison to Brereton he didn’t seem to put himself about. Took his goal well so can’t fault him overall but thought he’d put more effort in.

    The Mueller report where Trump was found to have obstructed justice..? How many of Trump’s election team are in prison. Honestly, actually read about it. The senate republicans vowed to clear Trump before it even passed the house.

    "donald"

    ‘Serious corruption allegations’... all of which are unverified. Keep trying. Trump was impeached. Anything you accuse Biden of, Trump has done far worse. Trump didn’t take anyone apart in 2016. Clinton was deeply unpopular in her own right and represented the incumbent party. Comey’s intervention was the final nail. Trump just picked up the pieces. This is different. Trump’s record, conduct and behaviour over the last 4 years is indefensible. This has nothing to do with left vs right. He is an ignorant, shameless narcissist. The whole republican platform is just based on vile rhetoric and a determination to ‘own the libs’. The fact that Trump will still get a minimum of 45% of the vote is a damning indictment on the state of the media and news outlets. Half the country lives in the Stone Age. I have strong opinions on Brexit and British politics but will agree to disagree if people don’t see it the same way. Trump is another matter altogether. There is no defence. Political ideology goes out the window. The man is a disgrace.

    Watford v Rovers Wed 21st Oct 7.45pm

    Didn’t expect to win going into last night and there were some positives to take from the performance, particularly Holtby and Elliott. However we yet again found ourselves having to score three goals to get anything. Watford didn’t have to do much for any of their goals and that can’t continue into the rest of the season. Armstrong being out of form certainly didn’t help. Its early days and the season isn’t written off but it piles the pressure on Saturday. We can’t afford to fall much further behind. Otherwise we’ll be pinning our hopes on a miraculous 5/6 game winning streak in November. We saw how hard it was to play catch up last year.

    Nottingham Forest Home

    Be tough and the new recruits won’t be ready. Thankfully should be the same for Forest. A win would be massive considering the cavalry coming in next week.

    Summer Transfer Window

    A serial killer is a touch strong. At least they had £200m to throw at it and bizarrely keep putting money in. I won’t go further down this road. I know I’ll get labelled an apologist for merely suggesting that they’ve done ok for the last 3 years. Let’s enjoy the moment.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I’m not disagreeing but there are plenty of clubs that would swap owners in a heartbeat right now. Venky’s have done plenty of damage but in the last 2-3 years they’ve haven’t done much wrong.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Yes, a club of our stature should breeze through League 1. Btw, when do we play Sunderland this year?

    Summer Transfer Window

    Brilliant window. Look at the squad. So many “good” problems to have. The competition for places is insane and that’s before Travis and Dack come back. Elliott is a huge bonus. That move will turn heads. I wasn’t emotionally ready for this. I was prepared for a reserve goalkeeper.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Twitter is saying that Elliott has agreed to a loan... We’re trending,

    Summer Transfer Window

    Early days, but in terms of proven quality and depth, this has to be our strongest squad since 2012. Our bench would walk into most teams. Always best to judge at the end of the window but I had my doubts we’d do anything given the climate. Credit all round. I would have been content with Ayala, Dolan and Kaminski but the last two days have really kicked it up a notch.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Is that a backhanded compliment that if we get 2/3 in then it’s been a good window..?

    Summer Transfer Window

    Does it not say more about the options available to NI that they select a non-match fit Corry Evans... Also, I thought none of us wanted Evans to play for us anyway?

    Summer Transfer Window

    The prospect of Gallagher on the wing is rather depressing. However, Dolan is very young and will need breaks. He’ll also be a great impact sub. He can’t start every game yet. Gallagher has his uses but is not a winger.

    "donald"

    Yes it would. A win from here would be far more remarkable than his win in ‘16. Biden is up by 14 points nationally. It’s more likely to be a Biden landslide than a Trump victory. In the polling, Trump is not even ahead with non-college educated white males which is the demographic that swept him to power in ‘16. It’s not impossible, but the circumstances are markedly different to 4 years ago. Biden just needs to keep it clean from here on out. The real danger is how Trump reacts on Election Day.

    Summer Transfer Window

    How times have changed..? Regardless of Fulham’s stature as a club, they’re in the PL. Since when have we been able to compete for signings with a PL club? Suggesting that if players play well for us on loan they may get a move to a PL club is hardly a new line.

    Summer Transfer Window

    They were two substitutes options after Armstrong and Brereton. I don’t think we can justify another striker unless one of them goes.

    Cardiff (H) - Saturday 3rd October 2020

    Glad we’re not getting carried away after one result.
