    yoevil v rovers

    As RLC says, our last trip to Yeovil was in 2012-13, when we were still in the play-off positions despite losing 6 out of the previous 9 games. Before that, we had a run of four wins so on Saturday we have a chance to emulate this for the first time since in the EFL. As usual this season, this...

    With Connor, I think you have to remember that he is still not being picked in what I understand is his favourite position and one which probably requires him to use a lot more energy than at number 10. His work rate does not seem to have dropped and I think once he gets a couple of goals he...

    I hope not. I think we'd know his true worth if he suffered an injury.

    He didn't look knackered when he made that run and pass to Harvey Gilmour on Friday for the goal. However, I wasn't at the game and only saw the highlights.

    Welcome back. What have you been up to? I think your last post was when we were still in League One. ;)

    2018/19 - 10 games in

    Now 13 games in and an interesting pattern is emerging. Our home goals are 5-2 in seven games while away we are 12-10 in six. So, although we are averaging two goals a game on our travels, we can't even manage a goal a game at PP. But pointswise, those 5 goals have been worth 14 points...

    Rovers v Imps

    Lincoln's latest away game at Port Vale puts this win into true context. I doubt the Imps will lose more than a handful off games this season. If only we'd done this two seasons ago, we'd have been champions.

    rovers v macc

    They may be managerless, but they will be fired up against their local rivals. They are winless in 12 matches this season, but are one game short of equalling the EFL record for games without a victory. In 2011-2012, when they were last in League Two, they failed to win any of their last 23...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    If you are looking for a crumb of comfort, one of our promotion rivals, Stevenage, lost 8-0 at Charlton Athletic in the same competition. They also had a weakened side like us. It'll be interesting to see how they perform on Saturday.

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    The last time we shipped six was in the FA Cup against Swansea in January 2015 (2-6). I can't remember us losing 6-0 in a competitive game - even in a meaningless cup game, but we have suffered that fate in pre-season friendlies. I remember one painful defeat to Birmingham City in 2002 which...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    One further thought - is Paddy Wharton now our number two keeper? He was on Saturday. I've heard nothing about Shamal George going back to Liverpool. Is Luke Pilling out on loan? It says so on the OS, but it also says George is still here and Wharton is out on loan. If Paddy is indeed being...

    Shrewsbury v Rovers

    Yes, we rested most of our key players and gave the fringe players a chance to get match fit, but I really feel for any fan who travelled. They should get their fare and entry refunded. If it wasn't depressing and embarrassing, then surely it was a waste of an evening. Personally, I don't...

    Morecambe v Rovers

    Yes, it deserved to win any match. In fact, all the goals were well worked and it was a great result, although obviously the performance was poor at times.

    The Squad for 2018/19

    Hearing that Harvey Gilmour has made such a breakthrough into the first team, the thought struck me that in fairness to Micky this summer's recruitment has been very good. Most of the incomers and loanees have been regular first teamers or challenging to be. We need to be more patient with...

    Thanks, Sparky.

    Morecambe v Rovers

    Stats say we fouled 22 times to their 4. Were we that dirty and Morecambe that clean? Also, a report says Shrimps should have had a penalty for handball at 1-1.

    In the playoffs for the first time this season after first back to back wins.

    Morecambe v Rovers

    Who needs Norwood? ;) We have doubled our season's best total but conceded our worst. It sounded a tough ga.e. I look forward to the reports.
