    Cambridge v Tranmere

    Makes a pleasant change after the garbage from the Stevenage manager last week. Pringle taken off, was he having a quiet game or picked up a knock? Did Smith and Morris swap wings, or did Jonny play wide left? I presume Buxton for Caprice was an acceptance by Micky of the draw, bringing on a...

    Cambridge v Tranmere

    A reasonable point, given the host’s form. Sounds like Davies and Ellis were in the wars, hopefully fit for Tuesday.

    Cambridge v Tranmere

    Hadn’t realised Ridehalgh injured and he played well last weekend. Chance for Zoum to show he’s back to early season form/fitness. Defensively we’re a bit stretched only one defender Buxton on the bench.

    Cambridge v Tranmere

    BBTC, on the recent form guide, Cambridge are marginally ahead of Exeter, so we should be expecting a tough game. Rovers will need to match the quality of last weekend to deliver a result here.

    Cambridge v Tranmere

    Both Nelson and Banks unavailable for this game. I had wondered if Micky might revert to a back five for the away games, particularly with Cambridge in such good form, winning four of their last five, but Nelson's absence makes that unlikely. My guess would be that we'll start with the same xi...

    Rovers v Stevenage

    I’d have preferred a few draws last night tbh. Swindon on a fairly good run look like they could make the play-offs, while Oldham may be benefitting from new manager bounce. While our next 3 games are against sides at the wrong end of the table, Cambridge and Notts have started to improve and...

    Rovers v Stevenage

    The clip of the Norwood-Nugent incident I've seen only shows Nugent aiming a blow at Nors don't know if there was something that happened before? The ref didn't get a clear view and decided to simply give a talking to, after speaking to his Assistant on that side. It's been suggested that there...

    You're right and it's hard to square the circle. Who'd be the owner of a football club...

    Cambridge v Tranmere

    Given Ellis played so well against Stevenage, it will be a difficult decision for Micky if Nelson is available.

    season tickets 2019/20

    Think the rise in season-ticket prices is around 20%. That is quite steep, given a fair proportion of our fan-base is drawn from lower income groups. Set against that we’ve been playing NL prices for L2 football this season. I think the rise is likely to put us into the upper middle range for L2...

    Rovers v Stevenage

    Couldn't figure why Stevenage had the edge in possession in the first half [think the BBC site had it as 44:56] yet Rovers were so totally dominant after h/t. Although they were chasing the game, only recall one effort from them after h/t on the break which was blazed over the bar. If there was...

    Rovers v Stevenage

    Much more comfortable second half, deserved win.

    Rovers v Stevenage

    Sid Nelson off injured after he and Monthe seemed to be developing an understanding. Injury time header from Morris puts Rovers ahead, seemed to be a lot of Stevenage protests, couldn’t tell why from my viewpoint. We seem to be surrendering a lot of possession in the midfield areas, most of...

    Rovers v Stevenage

    I’m surprised at the lack of change too, maybe a chance for the new players to bed in more. Mullin not even on the bench, another player Micky’s fallen out with...?

    Rovers v Stevenage

    One consolation, if us Rovers regulars don’t know how we’ll line up, Stevenage won’t have a clue either...

    Rovers v Stevenage

    I haven't seen MMs full pre-match interview, but RLC thought there were strong indications Banks would start. Personally I've reservations, but assuming we're playing 2 central midfielders then the options are limited. Banks replaces McCulloch. While Monthe and Nelson might not need as much...

    The Squad for 2018/19

    I get the impression that Shrewsbury punched above their weight last season helped by some above average loanees. Whoever took over when Hurst jumped ship was always going to face a tough challenge.

    Rovers v Stevenage

    Next up is a game against the side immediately above us in the table. It all seems a long time ago since our opener back at Stevenage, a fight-back with two Norwood goals and a promising cameo from Ben Tollitt, leading to hopes subsequently dashed that he might be back to form. I don't know...

    Rovers v Cobblers

    Crowd was better than I expected, just over 5k. The dip in form may see some staying away.

    Rovers v Cobblers

    Sounds like being unable to finish work in time to make this game wasn't such a bad thing. Losing 3 games on the trot is worrying, especially since we’d expect to get something out of the two home games. Think it’s true parallels can be drawn with 2014/5, but there are also differences in that...
