Thread revival as it's a very scary and realistic reality
Is there such a thing as an unrealistic reality then? Could get very pseud's corner.

Re: Rovers v Sunderland, Tue 20th March 2012, 20:00

2 wins and most people think we're safe. People need to not get too far ahead of themselves. Yes we've won 2 games in a row with 2 clean sheet and we're 6 points clear but I don't think we are safe by any stretch of the imagination. Anyway, I'm a very happy man tonight. :D I still think 34 points w...

Re: Rovers v Sunderland, Tue 20th March 2012, 20:00

There is always something particularly satisfying about beating a side managed by Martin O'Neill. Especially one he's only just taken over and was annoyingly getting to play "above themselves". Brought down to earth with a bump tonight. And after most of a season convinced it was curtains for us, it...

Re: Relegation?

Phew! That was uncomfortably close, but ended well in the end.

On to next season.

Re: Who do you want as manager next season?

Imagine a Maclaren on the wing? The acceleration would be devastating. Defenders wouldn't have a chance. But could it deliver a decent cross?

Is it at all conceivable he will be fired in the summer?

Re: Relegation?

Looking likely now I'm afraid. Next question. Will we be as fortunate as in the past in jumping back up to the Premiership, or will the structure the club has now lead to some serious drain circling? I fear the latter. Many changes for the worse in the past few months, and these were more or less se...

Relegation?

Briefly it looked like the upheavel was actually a good thing. Now a different picture is emerging. I'm tipping we're going down. The (few) teams below us are improving and God knows what has happened to us. Too much to contemplate. What do you think? And if it happens, is the Championship really al...

Re: Rovers vs WBA, Sun 23rd Jan 2011, 16:00

RSC industrious up front and gave kalinic a masterclass in how to hold the ball up. Completely agree. Kalinic should watch and take note of everything RSC does. Considering RSC has hardly had a game in ages too, his performance today was very good. He looked a completely different class. Something ...

Re: Lionel Messi

Where was Messi against Inter Milan exactly? Which German defender's pocket did he spend that 4-0 thrashing in? Go on. Which? You're too young to remember Maradonna. Pretty much anyone who can, as far as I can tell, will say that without a shadow of a doubt, Messi is not at his level. He might just ...

the best ever? That was written in March 2010. Then came the world cup. After which he didn't look so smart any more. Diego Armando remains in a different class entirely to Messi.
