    World Cup 2018

    Sterling still looks like an 18 year old on the verge of becoming a world beater. He has plenty of skill but still somehow lacks the awareness or ability to read the game and make the right decisions. That normally comes with age, problem is that he's 24 or something now and it still doesn't seem to have clicked.
  2. Historically promoted clubs don't find it too difficult to sell on the players that got them promoted. Hell, we bought a few (Evans etc.) on the grounds of 'they know how to win promotion' - so it doesn't really matter. We're in the championship for the moment, if they're good enough to win at this level then great, but if it turns out they're not up to premiership standards then flog em and replace em when we get there.

    Rovers Ladies Official Stream Final

    Are we applying for one of the spots in the revamped Women's super league one or two next season does anyone know? It'd be hard to justify us not getting in after a treble winning season.

    Wimbledon v Rovers

    I was walking between Charing cross and Embankment when I was told the game was off by a rover walking in the other direction. Mind you, I did live in south London at the time, so can't grumble too much.

    Player of the Season - So Far....

    Objectively, I know that without Smallwood Dack doesn't get the freedom to do what he does, and I know that Charlie's leadership and experience steadies the ship (and it's been a very long time since I've expected goals whenever we've won a free kick in the way I do when he picks the ball up) but heart over head Dack is just magic at this level. I'm not sure of the last time we had an attacking player in his prime who just looked too good for the opposition (relative to the division) almost whenever he was on the pitch, Bellamy maybe? They are definitely the three though. And I think it reflects very well that two of them were new signings this season. Better recruitment than we've had in a while.

    I mean, I agree with you. I was just trying to work out the thinking behind the quotes in that interview.

    If there's the option for the club to extend for another 12 months built to the deal he signed then presumably that can just be triggered without offering a new contract? If so I guess you could read TMs comments as saying that we're not going to lose him on a free at the end of this season so we can afford to see how he does over the rest of the season?

    How many Rovers players play internationally?

    Caddis and Conway have both played for Scotland, but aren't in the squad at the moment. There are a couple of youth internationals I think, but that's the total of it at the moment.

    Can't help but feel it wont be his last job in football. He could well just rinse and repeat the job he's just had - wait until January for one of the clubs in the relegation zone to pay him silly money with a big bonus to keep them up, work for 5 months and then walk away. He could probably make a few million a year that way and still have seven months off.

    Coyle Out

    He managed Bolton for a bit, he must be aware of Rovers - same difference to those in Venkyland.

    Coyle Out

    If Coyle is going to be sacked it will be in the next week. With the transfer window coming up not having a manager will be a great excuse not to sign any players. 'The club has more important things to worry about', 'we can't possibly make transfer decisions without ensuring we have the best possible man in charge', 'the owners are 100% committed to the club and see the appointment of a quality manager as first priority' A new manager will then be appointed on February the third or something. Sammy Lee is out of work and has a generally terrible record (but 'knows the club'), he might fit the profile. Or whoever our third choice youth coach is at the moment.

    Rovers V Norwich City

    He'll be taking some positives out of the game then.

    Brighton Away 22Nd August

    My guess is that they brought the squad of 18 down and Lowe was taken ill on the coach en route, leaving us with an odd line up and six subs.
  14. BBC reporting that our goal came from a Marcus Olsson cross in spite of the fact he wasn't in the match day squad.
