    Rovers vs Rotherham

    I don’t think they were lucky, we were perhaps unlucky not to win but they did the job they came to do, keeper made some big saves which he is there to do

    THE RYAN NYAMBE APPRECIATION THREAD

    Thought he was going to get his first goal yesterday, he’s always looked like having the attributes but he’s developing a swagger to go with it.

    I think Rothwell is a good little player and deserves a go but thought he was pretty poor yesterday in his brief time his passes seemed a yard behind where they should be. He’s much better than the player I thought he’d be when he signed though and like Dack and Palmer one of our few players who will see the ball coming to them and be looking to make something happen rather than just passing it back to the middle, frustrating and obvious when it doesn’t come off but I like the drive to make it happen.

    I had an eye on the dugout just before the goal, Rothwell was coming on but Brereton hadn’t been sent to warm up and was still sat with his jacket on

    These two statements are slightly contradictory, of course you could say that the subs the manager made got us the points, or you could say the lineup in the first place was wrong. All up for debate but I liked the lineup today although I perhaps would have given Raya the week off and would have been happy to see Big Ben start. Nice break now and I’d be hoping that Brereton is given the nod against Preston.

    Nobody it’s the same as every time we don’t win, far more people talk about the negativity than actual negativity

    I actually think Palmer would do better in a different side, his problem is Dack is too good and he isn’t Dack. As such he’s playing out wide and he hasn’t yet learned how to be fully effective as a winger, Brereton has a similar issue in that he won’t be deployed as a striker as we can’t play 2 up top AND Dacky. Its a nice ‘problem’ to have of course

    He played a big part in creating a few chances, one great flick on with his head (I’d say behind Graham He’s probably our most useful attacker in the air), one where he dropped deep turned a defender and turned defence into attack and a couple of brillIant balls in behind the defence to Nyambe to put good crosses in, few more as well. Armstrong looked dangerous today but I think he’s too greedy, looks to shoot every time and apart from his worldie effort was wasteful today more often than not.

    Time wasting

    We used to find it hilarious when Tugay did his antics and I’m sure we deployed similar tactics at Frank Lampards Derby this season. What does frustrate is the limp hurry up motion the refs usually make without backing it up with action until they bring the yellow out in the last minute usually

    I still can’t work out why Mowbrays planned sub (until the goal) was Rothwell for Graham with Brereton sat not even warming up

    Rovers vs Rotherham

    Some good positives today The aforementioned Nyambe, raya came through unscathed, Rodwell looks totally assured, Palmer and Armstrong both a handful and Brereton again making an impact. Graham had a stinker again though and Dack enigmatic, he kept tripping over the ball but somehow by doing so fooled defenders and opened it up. For me it’s time to roll the dice and throw in Brereton from the off

    Rovers vs Rotherham

    Good result for you, a little unadventurous at times and some frustrating time wasting but that’s football; Rovers fans used to love Tugay and his trademark 5 minute walk offs, it’s the refs jobs to clamp down on it. Frustrating for Rovers but football has and always will be the same, you need to take your chances and today we didn’t. I do think Mowbray was too slow to make changes today and bizarrely wasn’t going to bring Brereton on until the Rotherham goal he was swapping Graham for Rothwell

    Dack just has the knack even when not performing

    Well if you don’t take your chances Not sure why Rothwell is primed to come on ahead of Ben
