Premier League (6/9)



  1. Pathetic defending. Subs dire. The actual quality of the players I mean
  2. I want Mowbray to go as much as most on here, just for a change from the staleness. However, odds are against him now aren’t they… If this is true, for him to have best chance of success, he needed backing with a striker. He wasn’t, so chances are he will do worse, not well enough to be backed and is gone at end of season. The crux: if true, the above is almost inevitable. So why wait another year for the inevitable, malaise set in, watching player contracts run down so assets that could be important for future success with a new manager disappear for free so the job for the next guy in is even harder? such a frustrating club to support, jeez.
  3. I would have thought running out of actual shirts to stick the name on would be more of a problem 🤷‍♂️
  4. I hate ‘false 9’ with a passion. Another nail in the coffin of football as I loved it
  5. Interested why Eastham is now backup GK? What’s happened to Pears and the Greek lad?
  6. And then choose a formation to play based on these players who will sod off a year later. Beyond short-sighted
  7. I’ve bought loads of dvds off one chap I found online - he is A Rovers fan as well. Even ones that weren’t officially released he has made with copies of MOTD etc. I could dig out his email address for anyone interested - send me a DM
  8. Anyone in the least bit excited? ‘meh’ would sum my emotions up.
  9. Tony’s not interested in goals against. 1, 3, 5, it doesn’t matter to him.
  10. If an embargo is true, will be time for some of the promising u23s to finally step up. Not necessarily a bad thing. Cleanse the club, start again and build a young team to be proud of. No more money-thieves like Corry Evans. on a side note, the daily mail website is horrendous, just like its journalism.
  11. Living in Shropshire with 3 youngsters I could never get one anyway, but I will not attend any more games with him in charge or watch any on tv. complete waste of 90 minutes of my life and totally apathetic to it all. next managerial appointment, whenever that may be is the breaking point for me Rovers-wise. Can’t imagine even saying that for a club which has been such a huge part of my life but it’s true. If it’s some one who I can get behind then I will be at the first game I can. if it’s the opposite than sadly it would be much easier, and more fun, just to walk over to the New Meadow and just watch a game of football, sadly one I would not be overly invested, but be able to leave all feelings about it there and just get on with the weekend.
  12. Oh to have a team full of these men again; one to be proud of. The Hughes years were golden. We could give anyone a run for their money.
  13. Who’d it be emailed to? There’s no-one left. Gone are the days when John Williams would read it and invite you in for a chat. No doubt this would now fall under the remit of the part time staff in the club shop when they aren’t trying to sell the remaining XXXL training gear which is the only stock that they have had since October.
  14. 🤢🤮🤢🤮 what a horrible article. Horrible that it was even printed. boo hoo Tone, pass the tissues. doing what you’ve always done is clearly the problem so please don’t continue to do so. It just doesn’t work. We need someone else to do exactly what you don’t do. i used to love football like you claim to. Sadly that real love is long gone following The last ten years, and is hanging on by the smallest of threads. What happens next is the defining moment for me if there is any chance of that being rekindled. I don’t necessarily blame you, it’s just that you’ve run your course. How strange it is to feel literally nothing when an inevitable goal in conceded; to feel only slightly more when we actually score. My son is 1 and I’ve got about 5 years before he will get football for this team to once again be one that we can be proud of. If this stagnation and boredom continues, why would I try to get him to follow the rovers? In its current guise, it would put him off the game for life. It simply is numbingly not enjoyable. the time for change is now, was 5 games ago, was 2 years ago. Someone for the love of god take some responsibility and make it happen.
  15. Clearly we can’t beat ‘anyone’ or we wouldn’t be 15th. we are nowhere near playing like Brentford or Swansea. journey to mundane insignificance continues. got news for you Tone...you’ve been a burden for too long. Long past time to go.
