As someone pointed out many fans followed a failed narrative, lauded players on first appearance only to realise they were duds but they are now screaming they know the truth and the remedies.
A dose of reality and humility would not be out of place, but the internet age makes it unlikely.
I can confidently state in the relegation season, the squad was completely doomed, even with one absent and two other clubs holed below the waterline. At this stage we were going through the motions with a forward you wouldn't take now 24 places lower!
The true worth of this squad is not known yet, that is clear, there maybe a considerable upside as obviously Nigel has not had time to get to the bottom of it.
The winter signings before Covid resulted in three away wins on the bounce and was enough to convince knowledgeable fans the drop was off. Today whatever happens we are weeks away from that stage.
Anyone losing their shit after another adverse result, will not help the club at all. We have a manager most competitors cannot even dream of getting, a Chair with a record of backing the manager in need and without using debt. There are no guarantees but that is not a bad equation.
For me if Norris plays 80% of the games left, we walk to safety. If he is mainly absent, I don't know.
I hope we win just to keep the morons at bay. Demands he sells the club are as stupid as spotty scally demanding he gets supermodel girlfriend to take home to the Woody. Demand only works with supply. A club in the grim north with 140 years of losses doesn't attract £10 million in charity much!!

I hadn't realised top three are Stockport, Notts County & Wrexham. How depressing. I do not think the quality in this league is great but we have fallen quite considerably when you look at our pathetic position.

Lovely day, hopefully supplemented by a win. I’m assuming McGee is fit and well. Some FGR fans feeling they’ve still got a capable side out despite their reported injury woes. Should go without saying that we need to be up for this from the start and keep them rattled. No pedestrians or passengers today. No gifting goals. Looking forward to this more than a lot of games of late, the steaks (sic) are high.

Hopefully we can keep 11 players on the pitch today, as well as the full complement of subs!
Not hearing good things about Me Duckworth who’s the man in black today. First season on the FL list and (I think) first time in charge of a Rovers game.

As stated previously not much to worry about in the FGR side, and certainly didn't rate their defence when I saw them in October.
Just to add an exception - their number right-wing/midfielder looked super strong and pacey. Apart from that not much to write home about. Sticking with 3-1 home win.

Nigel has clearly been reading my comments on here!

Dennis and Norris start. Wood back in at LB.

Could be 4-4-2 with apter and Connor wide. Hendry walker in the middle.

But could be 4-3-3 with Norris thru the middle, apter and Dennis either side (but both left footed).

Interesting no Jolley on bench. Taylor fully fit again now? Belehouan on bench. Feeling positive.

No Merrie on the bench either, after Adkins singing his praises in the pre-match, maybe one of the players with niggles Nigel mentioned. As Lewis out too, who gets the defensive midfield gig when Walker tires? Pleased we get to see Norris and Dennis start, though until the whistle blows don’t know if 2 up front or3

FGR have Deeney starting and ex loanee Jacob Maddox. Given all the injuries pre-match referenced it doesn’t sound that weak a side.

Half time and we lead. As you would expect it’s been a scrappy affair. FGR have probably played better football but crucially we’re winning.

Could really do with a second goal.

Yeah. FGR finishing the stronger. Definitely need a second. Hopefully we see more of Norris and Dennis second half.

It is 2 up top. Norris done a few good things outside the box, would rather he’d been inside more. Dennis very quiet. Rovers haven’t built on the early goal. One very good save from McGee and a lot of FGR possession in our half in the closing minutes. I think we should revert back to leaving a player up (Apter) for their corners.

Seemed to be a lot of protests about the goal from the visitors. Anyone see what that was about?
