    Aaron Ramsey

    I was thinking more that avoiding, say, a £40m transfer fee subsidises almost half of an £83m contract. You are right that TV money will have an impact on the astonishing size of these numbers to start with. However, I'll have to take accept your understanding as to how TV money is distributed...

    Aaron Ramsey

    Interesting that no English clubs were in the list of suitors. Is this not more about Bosman than TV money?

    Vale v Rovers

    It's not just the pitch that needs to be ok but also the approaches to the ground. Having no manager in place, will Vale pull out all the stops to ensure the game is on? Just call me cynical ...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    It's all a little bit mix and match, isn't it? I'm sure MM has brought in the best he can but not sure where it leaves us in term of a settled formation. We have the wingers but no target man for them to hit (without decrying Nors' undoubted aerial ability) and 3 busy, hard-working type strikers...

    Rovers v Spurs

    It is great to see us receiving a decent amount of national press exposure!

    The Squad for 2018/19

    The sooner he is fully fit and back the better. An on form Banks adds so much class to the team and improves us immeasurably!

    Rovers v Shrimps

    We could really do with a win tomorrow and I'd absolutely take a scratchy one. It was a fantastic day at Morecambe and we will have to battle just as hard to take the points. Our defence will need to be solid and concentrate hard since the Shrimps were very impressive going forward. We need to...

    Merry Xmas

    A merry Christmas to all and many thanks to Ian. If we can remain unbeaten through until 12th Night it'll have been a wonderful festive season and will have included a Christmas miracle!

    Rovers v Spurs

    A massive game for us with national TV exposure. While a positive result is unlikely, a draw or a win would be financially game changing for us. I think Spurs were taken to replays twice last season by lower division teams, so it can be done. I think that they will be trying to avoid a repeat...

    The replay mark 2

    A wonderful pair of volleys. Happy to see this out but nice if there were a couple more goals in it for us.

    CJ's goal was a little bit special!

    County v rovers

    No, of course I'm not saying that. I'm just making the point that in life, in football and particularly with Rovers the best laid plans of mice and men quite often go awry. it is just a personal preference that we play our strongest team (fatigue considered) and do the same on Monday. I...

    County v rovers

    Really interesting reading this thread! After far too much consideration, I think I'd go with our strongest team against Notts County and deal with any resultant injuries/suspensions/exhaustion when selecting the Southport team. All sorts of weird and wonderful stuff happens in football that...

    Oops, kiss of death! 3-3.

    The replay mark 2

    Peterborough looking well set this evening. I wonder what odds on us meeting them in round 4? Would make Leicester winning the league look like a nap!

    rovers v Cambridge

    A dreadful first half after a bright first five minutes. Cambridge were poor and we were even poorer - it felt like V&n&&&&a all over again, shocking! The worst half of football we have played all season and I pray it doesn't get worse. Second half didn't start much better. However, as Cambridge...

    Harvey Gilmour

    This is quite an accolade actually and I'm really pleased for him. As you say BBTC the flip side for us is that it will raise his profile and perhaps make it less, rather than more, likely that his loan to us will be extended. Fingers crossed, though. It would be great if we could keep him!

    Wow - fillet steak snails? I'm going to have to google that one! Starting to feel hungry now. All over! Bring on the Sandgrounders!

    the replay

    My old mate Porky has the Art School and that makes his taster look cheap - although I'm sure you both do fab food! Anyway this looks like we've nailed it and the finale to the Scotland game sounds more exciting - thankfully!

    You haven't been feeding him have you AM? We seem to have tightened up a bit second half and making it more difficult for them. Good game management.
