I’m not a big Armstrong fan, he’s overrated I agree but I have to give him his due.....he’s scored a few this season. That wasn’t really my point though. Watching the game I couldn’t see us scoring from anywhere. I nearly fell off my chair when we scored a header.......no.....when Sam scored a header. It helped that he was being marked by someone a foot shorter.
But who else ever looks like scoring? Buckley (twice) and BB had attempted shots, in the first half, which barely reached their goalie. Rothwell, Evans and even Holtby suffer nose bleeds when they get into shooting territory. There never seems to be anyone smart enough or willing enough to throw themselves into the box.......just on the off-chance that the cross will be a good un. When we make chances there isn’t a decent finisher. Gallagher doesn’t do it for me; he’s had some real shockers. OK, what I really mean....he’s a waste of money..........as, I fear, is BB.
As a Rovers fan I’ve been here before.....lots of times; wondering where the next goals are going to come from.
