    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    In respect to Boz's point I think it was almost impossible for anybody to push themselves forward in the circumstances of last night's match. Each individual was part of a disjointed/unfamiliar team against an opposition who looked far stronger. If any one or two of them were called upon to join...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Interesting one. I'm not sure he has rotated much. I think he has changed players occasionally due to form/injury/suspension and made wholesale changes for cup matches but don't think that is the same as rotating. I don't have a problem with this approach at all and think that Mickey's...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    I think I also saw us ship 7 to Man City in an FA Youth Cup game. It was in the 80s (probably mid) and I think that over half the City team made it to first team level but not sure that any of ours did.

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Oh gosh, there's a flood of bad memories! I saw the Swansea and Mansfield matches. If I remember correctly we played Mansfield off the park in the first half and could've been 5 up. No doubt I'll have erased Shrewsbury from my memory by the end of the season as well ...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Oh dear! like RLC I think this may be the first time I've seen us ship 6! To be honest, I was only hoping that we would be competitive and keep our shape tonight; we certainly failed on the first and there were too many changes to allow the second. I agree that Buxton was our best player - he...

    From BBC: "The Silkmen are on the brink of equalling an all-time English league record for consecutive games without a victory - although their winless run spans seven years, dating back to when they were relegated in 2012. Their barren sequence currently stands at 35 matches, which is just one...

    Morecambe v Rovers

    I think the match finished with one of the Morecambe players on the deck in/around our penalty area, so it may have had something to do with that. There did seem to be a pause of a minute or so after the final whistle before it all kicked off though. To be honest it was quite a long way away and...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    ADD l think you may be referring to Carl Spellman and Nick Long. I would hope they would make the squad unless they have been loaned out.

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Planning to make the trip on Tuesday, ,mainly because I'm off work (coincidentally) so I can. I wouldn't normally bother and don't expect us to have much of a following. I guess that all the non-regular starters from the squad will play, we will include the minimum first teamers to abide by the...

    Morecambe v Rovers

    OMG what a game! After 81 minutes there was only 1 team going to win it … and it wasn't us! They absolutely battered us in the last 20 minutes. A fantastic run and ball from Zoom, sweetly finished by Gilmour. That was a very exciting game of football! I still can't work out whether we deserved...

    2018/19 - 10 games in

    I agree that either way it would be a tough call. Fingers crossed that we are still within striking distance in January and Nors decides the best way of progressing his career is to sign on the dotted line. I think we are due one going our way after the summer departures!

    Thanks RLC.

    2018/19 - 10 games in

    If he doesn't sign and we get a sensible offer, I'm not convinced that we will be able to reject it. Rejecting, say, a 400k offer (realistic?) in the transfer window with 20 games left is the equivalent of paying somebody 20k a match. I can't imagine that this would happen. Surely we would cash...

    Morecambe v Rovers

    Was planning on driving over and buying a ticket at the ground; didn't realise it was all ticket, though. Probably best calling Morecambe tomorrow before I set off! Has anybody heard whether there are likely to be any available?

    Rovers v Newport

    I think Mullin deserved his chance. after his impact at Carlisle Ok, it didn't work out particularly well and Norwood/Stockton logically appears the better balanced pair. However, good performances off the bench (or when stepping in for injury or suspension) deserve to be rewarded otherwise you...

    The 12th man

    Our drummer needs a special mention - a sterling 90 minute performance! Words on a Carlisle forum suggesting that the drum drowned out the atmosphere made me chuckle!

    Carlisle v Rovers

    What an enjoyable away day that was! From the brink of 0-1 down to 1-0 up in the blink of an eye. Really dramatic game and fantastic support from the SWA. They don't come much better than that! The substitutions made a massive difference with game changing energy injected by Smith and Mullin. If...

    bolton

    I've slightly mixed feelings about this and any other club who are living beyond their means. One part of me thinks that clubs like our own are being penalised by having sound finances, the other has some sympathy for the fans of clubs when the chickens come home to roost. Having said that those...

    And they've just bought Doidge for a 7 figure sum? WTF?
