    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Spot on there RLC! Salford would be a good fit but would we be playing Red Devil’s advocate by potentially enhancing their promotion opportunity and also head turning Ben with their ridiculous financial situation? Fylde sounds a good opportunity though!

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Thanks RLC for your in depth analysis!! Any thought on the subs? Rule obligation or merely give the guys a run out?

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    As RLC said, it was obviously a team of individuals on show tonight but I’d love to hear who was up for the fight against the odds? The subs seemed strange, maybe neccessary to conform with the bizarre rules? Disappointed about Ben. Is he that far away from first team action?

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Clever subbing on Saturday allowed that starting XI which is spot on regardless of result, invaluable fitness opportunity!

    2018/19 - 10 games in

    I think it’s a given that the transfer window will be key for obvious reasons. As for tomorrow... I’d like to see Gilmour in & Jennings square behind... Mullin? So we learn of Stockton’s op too! No issue with Ryan or the Italian on the bench! Yeah, tight draw or narrow win...

    Rovers v Newport

    Ok, I’ve put forward my views for weeks so won’t tire the conversation any further.

    Rovers v Newport

    Slight worry to me though if it is to maintain dressing room harmony. I wasn’t confident with that partnership beforehand & less so after although I agree there were other underlying issues in terms of service etc.

    Rovers v Newport

    I’m probably one of the few who was disappointed to see Stockton dropped on Saturday. As I said before, you lose both a balance up front & an impact player off the bench in Mullin. I surprisingly feel MM bowed to fan pressure, next up on rota? George Waring? I believe we have a closed doors game...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    That’s a really interesting interview RLC. Three things that grab my attention: Firstly his niaivety of life in Brazil, secondly his learned experience from this which has seemingly created a very laid back demeanour judging by his interview that could result in exuding a ‘man of the world’...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    He described himself as an attacking midfielder, no shortage of set piece skill from what I’ve heard.

    Carlisle v Rovers

    I know it looks like we’re over reliant on Nors’ goals but is that because MM has found a system that works with Stockton? If we did ever revert to a 532 is DMH best suited to this as per last season? With Zoum on the left & then move Connor square alongside Tolls/Larnell/Smith behind the Lord?

    lord norwood

    Haha, I’m the least observant person & have no facial recognition skills yet bizarrely whilst reading the latest on here something drew me to his attention to look up before he’d even come in. Ironically, I think it was his casual demeanour & lack of walking pace that stood out, a bit of a...

    They’ll do well to Doidge this bullet though....

    Rovers v Colchester

    I was gonna make the Mekki comparison a couple of weeks ago in terms of stamina but decided against it as there is a different skill factor between the two.

    lord norwood

    Ian, you know when you do a double take! I saw him pass the window & thought jeez he doesn’t half look like Nors then he sauntered into the empty bar area except for me & his mates, he was dressed in a grey trackie & flip flops. Still questioning whether it was him for sure until I heard him...

    Just sat in the Malmaison in Liverpool on my lunch break & the Lord himself has just wandered in to meet his mates :D

    Rovers v Colchester

    Firstly, Ian I’m glad to hear that! I’ve been everywhere but here lately, lol! Secondly RLC, I wish MM would take a few minutes out each week to read your posts because you pretty much summarise the majority of thoughts, at least mine anyway! I’m hoping that both MM’s comments about growing into...

    Rovers v Colchester

    Agree with RLC on team, attendance & result, narrow 2-1 win for me... or 1-0 Monthe is an asset from the bench with his versatility. Jay will strengthen the subs & could see some action in the event of a narrow lead late on....

    Rovers v Crewe

    As I expected with the exception of Ben, thought he’d start. Clearly DMH getting a good run out is priority.

    Rovers v Crewe

    Don’t think you guys are a million miles away from the starting XI & would be disappointed if you are! Yeah, Bucko travelled on Saturday so he should either start & be withdrawn or off the bench. Chopper Harris needs match time. Shame due to Sutton & Gumbs long term injuries Monthe & Ellis (2 of...
