Fans Friendly Squad

  1. Charlton have announced our game with them will be one of their £5 a ticket deals. Probably won't be quite the same demand as the League One season but still an absolute bargain in this day and age. Always a good day out too.
  2. ....and there he was not 10 yards away. Selfies anyone?
  3. Huge month coming up. We are a bit up against it with injuries in attacking areas, hopefully we see Holtby and Rothwell sooner rather than later. I reckon we will do well to see Holtby for this game though. I do feel if we can keep the defence together, we have a chance of grinding things out. Have a feeling this will be another draw (queue irrational meltdowns!) , will go 1-1 A win though and we are 5 points off Fulham. I think most would be consider them to be having a good season and up there as one of the favourites for promotion. Walton Nyambe L
  4. Big game but they all are from this point onwards! Tough to talk about a game that falls so shortly after a transfer window deadline day, but with hopes of any incomings withering away by the hour, I think we can look ahead to the Boro game now. Would you change anything in the Starting XI and bench? Score prediction and goal-scorers? Are you going to the game? Some key facts below going into this one, based off of Middlesbrough's home record and our away record only: Injuries to key players Patrick Roberts, Daniel Ayala and Dael Fry for Boro so a big chance to grab so
  5. So after the Sheffield Wednesday match thread continued to descend after the weekend into conversation entirely disconnected from the game itself - I think it’s time for a new match thread. Very tough to anticipate anything with much certainty for this game. QPR as good as any side on their day, and as bad as any when it’s not. Very similar to us in a way. The pressures of winning 5-0 Away and having a home game following a week of sunny rest could tell with this one. The pessimist within me says 1-1, the optimist says a comfortable 2-0, with Darragh to score another from a set piec
  6. So, Adam Armstrong in respectable form, but so are Sheffield Wednesday as a team. I was fairly encouraged by the Preston game having trekked round Huddersfield, Forest and Birmingham in a 6 day period previously, it was MUCH better than those away games. Will we revert to type and crumble away from home? Does Danny Graham get a start? Bell or Downing at left-back? What team would you go with this weekend? Are you going to the game? What's your score prediction?
  7. Apologies if someone is doing a proper preview for this, but I've just noticed on twitter that they have said there are 1400 tickets remaining for the upper tier before they can sell lower tier ones. There fans appear to be having a right good moan about it and are even on about boycotting over it because they want to be in the lower. The price is the same for both tiers. What an odd bunch.
  8. I can never think of Forest, without having my mind go back to their glory days under the late Brian Clough and their success not only domestically, but on the European stage too. Like us, those days are long gone and the likes of signing Trevor Francis as the first £1m footballer and Peter Shilton, they most expensive keeper at that time, are distant memories. Again like us they had a brief look at life in the third tier, but are now established in the second tier again and are flirting with the play offs. Having played out a 1-1 draw at Ewood, back in October and with 4 points separatin
  9. Having done the preview for the home game against Town I thought I may as well do the return one, which is effectively a home fixture for me and the small, but loyal group of Rovers fans living in the Kirklees council district. The home fixture produced a 2-2 draw with both teams having mixed fortunes since, Town just escaping the relegation zone and Rovers brushing off a poor October to begin an unbeaten run that sees us on the brink of the play-offs. Rovers are sure to have a good following and with Town having a significant number of season ticket holders, the game should be almo
  10. Fixtures on this day tend to throw up surprises, for that reason I would prefer to be playing WBA away, but what can you do. I would go 4-4-2 Walton Nyambe Lenihan Tosin Bell Holtby Johnson Travis Downing Gallagher Brereton A win would be just the tonic for last night and Dacks injury.
  11. I think the conversation over on the previous match thread has started to drift towards the Wigan game now, so here's a thread. Unlike the last four, I think this is one of the best timed games we've had in years. Last season, we went on a great run, and the nosebleed began at Brentford (A), a very tough place to go and get points. This year, it'll be extremely difficult to lose against a Wigan side who've won 1 away game in 30. To have gone on that great run this year against some tough sides like Derby, Brentford, Stoke (A), Swansea and Bristol City is really good stuff, but those games
  12. The Question is obvious... The answer is not. The option for an unchanged side has been forced upon Mr Mowbray, so what's the plan people if you're in his shoes? Rothwell in the Dack role, Holtby? Nobody in that role and a change in formation?
  13. Just like we need it, straight back into it on Wednesday, let's ride the high. A place we've never had a lot of joy at in my memory, but never a better chance to improve that. Same team Tony, nothing to discuss!
  14. Hi, I am travelling over from Norway with my dad and younger brother for PNE away. I would appreciate it if anyone who is a ST holder could help me get tickets. Best Regards, Alexander
  15. Genuinely looking forward to this, probably more so than I have for a home game in a long time. Derby not in great form, we're playing some really nice football. I'd absolutely advocate for the same starting eleven from Brentford/Stoke, against a team like Derby who'll play football like the Bees, I see no reason to come away from a winning team. Predictions?
  16. Thankfully not much time to dwell on that abysmal performance against Luton. I missed the last 35 minutes when my feed dropped and I will miss all of this because I will be flying Tuesday night. Forest next up who have the benefit of having played and won at Stoke Friday night to take top slot for 16 hours. They are no great shakes but no weak links either. Nothing exceptional apart from being the dirtiest team I have seen in ages. The niggling fouls come thick and fast stopping the opposition from playing so if we don't have a decent ref on Tuesday, a red card from frustration for o
  17. So, after one of the best performances of the season in midweek can Rovers maintain the momentum away to lowly Stoke City? Fans have been buoyed by the victory over Brentford but Mowbray's Rovers have a habit of raising hopes only to disappoint in the next game. Stoke are in the bottom 2 but have a new manager in former Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill and have won 2 of their last 4 games, albeit victories over fellow strugglers Wigan and Barnsley. In the words of one famous poster, it ought to be a nailed-on Rovers win, but it's never been that simple with this team under
  18. Home banker. License to print money. Case of red ordered. Where's Merce?
  19. Tomorrow sees is play that lot in the under 23 PL Cup at Ewood. As it's against that lot I thought it deserved a thread of it's own. Beating them in any game is important to me. Hopefully we will give them a good stuffing and send them back to their cobbles sulking. I got my tickets on Monday and was told they have 500 and will be in the Darwen End over by the Riverside. Anybody else going?
  20. Anybody else watch this last night ? I enjoyed it, the atmosphere was fantastic. River Plate were by far the better team for 85 minute but two mistakes killed them. I thought the ref had a good game. He let a lot more go than ref's do over here. It kicked off a bit at the end but that was more to do with the two late goals than anything else.
  21. So last year was simply depressing. 2-1 up into added time and somehow lost the game. What are people's expectations this year? Leeds looking a little less potent this time round, with Marco Bielsa's over-reliance on Patrick Bamford being a downfall in some games, as he's not really banged them in this season. I can't see us keeping a clean sheet here, although I was massively impressed with Adarabioyo last time out vs Sheffield Wednesday. International break follows this one, so has the feeling of a pretty important fixture. For me we have to adopt a similar ethos to our away game a
  22. Tough one, I'd go for the XI that started against Huddersfield but I'm sure TM won't see it that way. Anyone going to this one, anyone know how many we've sold, and finally, what team would you go with?
  23. Well seeing as no one has started a topic about our next home game I thought I may as well give it a go (although after watching our capitulation last Saturday at QPR I can’t say I’m too enthusiastic). Living a few miles away from the John Smith’s stadium means I keep a close eye on what’s going on there and up to the last couple of weeks have been pretty pleased with their results. A bit of karma after fielding a weakened team at Birmingham in our relegation season? Well maybe not! Just a bit of a coincidence here, back in the 70’s I broke my leg playing at Brockhall, a good few
  24. Anyone know if tickets are still available? On Rovers website it can't find any? I would be surprised if we sold out, but then we always do have a good following in London...
