I love reading your input Chaddy however I have to disagree with your comment above.
Rovers are totally dysfunctional and are a complete mess behind the scenes - the lack of organisation is emphasised as below:
No commercialism regarding the kits, as we approach the end of July supporters have no idea as to the style or design of the new kit, yes we know we are blue and white for home but we only have speculation for the away colours!
Season ticket sales will have bombed big time because there is no thought process in place from Waggot and co! Yes we have those who renew like myself but for many others it’s nothing but negativity there are no emails, no commercial promotion and no incentive for new or indeed older fans to renew.
The communication from the club is absolutely the dregs. I have repeatedly emailed Waggot and those before him that communication from the club to the support is pathetic at best and needs some serious overhauling. Guess what? The shyster hasn’t responded again !
Where is the club promoting itself? The season is nearly upon us, we are at least 5 players short to give us a decent squad that is just about capable of survival in this league let alone progression, which should have been a relatively easy goal this coming season, to improve on 15th spot. The club is fast regressing to the one that slumped to relegation to Div 1 under the watchful gaze of Waggot, who I believe is out of his depth.
Mowbray was good for Rovers at the time he took the job. He himself has gone stale, he has regressed big time, his experiments have failed spectacularly at times. I do not foresee how he will take us forward this season unless a miracle happens.
It is these simple things that make a club tick, Rovers just cannot seem to get it right.
