    Rovers away at QPR - Good Friday 19th April 2019

    We gained three away points and some of the lessons you mentioned. I understand your logic and frustration but if this is a project it is more than one season. Only Norwich look like a premier league team in waiting. It would have been exciting to get into the play offs but these days you need to create the foundation of a premier league team in the Championship. We have not done that. We would be in big trouble if we got there and started planning. Cardiff, Fulham and Huddersfield are all on their way back down and Fulham at least, spent money. I can live with consolidation as long as we choose well in the Summer.

    Me too, strangely enough.

    According to my maths that’s 9 points in three games, two away from home. Final push for promotion. Oh we’ve run out of games. Still, nice way to consolidate with our other promotion partners from last year fighting for their lives. Very solid achievement.

    Maybe he will be big bold Tony and start with Brereton. And maybe he will score a hat trick and silence the boo boys on both sides. #Ihadtoomuchtodreamlastnight.

    “A team packed with legends such as Elliott Bennett”. I love the dark and sardonic cloud that is football humour.

    Wow. Praise for Raya, Bennett,Bell, Conway. Glad the fans who attended, saw such a great game. With all of the concerns before the game, and the euphoria afterwards, it feels like the footballing equivalent of striking lucky on a Saturday night.
  8. Is the thread to get me to the World on time?
  9. Oops it was 7.30 am in Pennsylvania and my brain had not booted up spellcheck without coffee.
  10. Ipswich were a play off chasing club not so long back. They would pray for such going nowhere. Does anyone truly believe that pushing for a play off place and getting promotion would have been a good thing? I am not saying that I am happy with this run of results or even some of the line ups. I am happy with consolidating and blooding some youngsters before season end. Dack will go and we will rebuild. And hopefully we will go back to our usual colors.

    He has money in the bank already by not spending January. Not sure Bauer is the answer at Centre back. We need someone who has been around the block in the championship at least.

    And to think we were runners up to Wigan last term. We kicked on. They did not.

    Strange that Nyambe had been left out in the cold for such a long period. Glad he is back in the groove.

    Great win after predictions of a 4-1 defeat on here. Anyone else superstitious on here? I lost a Rovers cotton bracelet that my neighbor’s kid made for me. Six weeks ago. She made a new one for me. Sunday.
