Premier League (6/9)



  1. They've already changed for the next generations. Dissembling is all many youngsters see from their role models. Junior football is replete with it.
  2. You are not allowed to say that. We all have to think the same things.
  3. @crimpshine has made some great points in his posts on here over many months and probably years. Always with the interests of the club at heart it seems. I respect his opinion and he doesn't seem divisive. Or do you just like your binaries @JohnGo? 😀
  4. Join the ranks of the deluded, @roverandoutIt's a great place to be. I won't go into details but after twenty plus years of Anglo-German relations, we have nothing to fear. We are in awe of them and they let us be. There is nothing inherently better about the Germans. Their TV was full of commentators and pundits wanting to play England - BEFORE they played Hungary! We can beat them and I predict we will. If we don't, I'll raise a glass to them. But let's not be too rational. Managers! Pah! Our 11 vs their 11. That's the magic. Play up the lads. COYB 😀
  5. ... [Exit, pursued by bear] [Enter shepherd] ... The Winter's Tale Act 3, Scene 3, William Shakespeare
  6. He They certainly peaked about forty years ago. You're right. But they are the eighth best supported club in world football by attendance. https://talksport.com/football/525568/top-50-average-football-attendances-in-the-world-in-the-last-five-years-including-manchester-united-barcelona-and-borussia-dortmund/ I enjoyed watching Holtby. Even if he was underwhelming at times. That pass for us to score right at the end of the game at home against Stoke I think when they were playing for time and conceded a free kick was class. Or that pirouette past two players on the edge of the box on his debut. Met him once. He's tiny.
  7. HSV are a bigger club than we'll ever be. The fans idolised him. He refused to fit in with the rest of the goldiggers in the club. That's why he left. Then he was benched by Mowbray. He's in no way perfect and who knows why he wants to leave. But really. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
  8. If he is just a show pony, you have to ask why? He is the most astute player in our squad. We've missed a trick due to bad management in my opinion. Fancy benching him. The next time we have a Germany or England international in our team will be a long time hence. Unbelievealbe own goal.
  9. I read some interesting stuff recently about the difference between a manager and a leader. In short, a leader is not a strongman just someone you are prepared to get behind. 'Na'then' is the language my grandad used to use. He was strong-minded and fair-minded. Like most Lancashire folk of his generation. If Rovers are looking for an identity...
  10. Some are saying it doesn't matter if Ainsworth is a Rovers fan. Or even that that might get in the way. I disagree. We need someone with the club's interests at the heart of their decision-making. The lad speaks with the same accent as Uncle Jack. Come on. We need some real passion around the place.
  11. How did Gillingham become the only EFL club not to pay agents a penny? League One club’s owner, Paul Scally, says weak people are funnelling vast sums to agents who not needed in football https://www.theguardian.com/football/football-league-blog/2021/apr/06/how-did-gillingham-become-the-only-efl-club-not-to-pay-agents-a-penny-football
  12. Inertia off the pitch and now inertia on it. It was always going to be this way. It will continue this way as well unless this fundamental problem is sorted out.
  13. This is a news outlet with a current article on the top dogging sites in Lancashire. It's a dispicable organ. 😄
  14. Tony Mowbray Bingo Game https://bingobaker.com/ Fed up as Pukki scores again? Missing moaning to your mates over a half-time beer? No worries. Pass the time by completing the bingo card with post-match Mowbrayisms. And now you can actually look forward to the manager's interview after the game. No prizes. Just the sad satisfaction that we're predictable on and off the pitch. (Post your guesses, if you're brave enough)
