    Dominic Samuel was my man of the match. Absolutely outstanding, especially as he hasn’t started a game since August 2018. Walton and Bell most improved players since the turn of the year. The usual star players for us were very good again today. Downing may as well be given the player of the season award now. Buckley has his best game in a Rovers shirt and Brereton is starting to look like a footballer. Strangely, we seem to be getting stronger with each new injury!

    Rovers v Hull

    I don’t think we’ll get top 6 but what this season has shown is perhaps we have a better squad than we thought. The wheels haven’t come off despite long term injuries to key players. Dack and Lenihan would have been my two who are irreplaceable in the team - we are coping ok without Dack so far though.

    Rovers v Hull

    That has to be our easiest game of the season so far. Hull were absolutely dire, we didn’t get out of first gear and still won 3-0 and should have had more. Armstrong is looking like some player. Pace, good on the ball, technical ability, goals, and assistants. Nyambe is up there with him as most improved in the past three months. Breo and Samuel looked good when they came on. Really pleased to see Samuel score.

    What has Armstrong been having for breakfast the past 6 weeks? Looks like a totally different player.

    Preston (home)

    Huff and puff. No quality. Same old.

    Brum FA Cup

    No quality going forward and weak at the back. All too familiar,

    Forest V Rovers

    Another atrocious set of results over Christmas and another horror show at the back. Add that to no real quality going forward. Nowhere near good enough for the top 6, unfortunately.

    Forest V Rovers

    Please send this pathetic GK back to brighton ASAP. Bell and Bennett can find a new club too!

    Good find. Illustrates the state of modern football outside of the premier league, making huge losses each year is not unique to just us.

    Venkys London Ltd accounts

    Obviously concerning figures, mainly because it means we are at the mercy of Venkys to keep us going, but these figures are indicative of clubs in the championship who are dreaming of premier league riches. The majority of championship clubs are at the mercy of their owners to keep them afloat, that’s the story of modern football outside of the top flight. How many clubs are self sustainable?

    January transfer window 2020

    We lack a lot of quality going forward, we need 2/3 players who are technically good and/can beat a man. We also need a striker who guarantees goals (don’t we all!). We are 3 quality players short of being genuine promotion contenders imo. That’s all very easy in theory but quality attacking players cost money in transfer fees and wages that we don’t have.

    What a shocker of a performances. Buckley, my word. I’d give him a minus score for that performance.
  13. Very drab game, much like the one on Monday night. Bell showing why a new LB needs to be on the shopping list in Jan. He does some decent things going forward but overall nowhere near up to it. No one really stood out today, but we looked solid at the back again. I don’t really buy into the “we’ve had two easy home games” because there is nothing between the top and bottom in this league, the results today show that once again. I’d certainly have taken our league position at the beginning of the season - a perfect position to make the play offs if we make a couple of good Jan additions.
  14. Trying to look on the bright side, at least we have a ready-made replacement in Holtby to come in and play in his best position. He’s not as good as Dack but he is still a class player.
  15. How gutting that it looks as though Dack is going to be out for the season. Football really is a cruel game. The one player we’d pick to not have a serious injury, and that player goes and gets one.
