In to the break with a win would mask the trouble the team is facing.
It looks stuck, I am not sure where but the managers attitude is clearly evident in the way the team is playing.
They are showing clear sign of indecisiveness . Come on whom I am kidding I am not a pundit.

Last season the odd inspired win kept Owen Coyle in a job he was destined to lose sooner rather than later. When he did go it was too little too late for an incoming manager to do anything. Not that Tony Mowbray did do anything...he didn't. This season we have already had one win which may be described as much needed if not must win. If we are destined to be promoted it would be nice to see a few more positives to affirm that route we are going down. Lets start with a good win against MK Dons. I make many references to Howard Kendal and Rovers promotion season in 1979/80. It took that Rovers team a while to get going but they did eventually. Still very early days in this season so still a bit unfair to judge the Rovers of 2017/18 just yet. I still have my doubts about Tony Mowbray though. Lastly i started by mentioning Owen Coyle. Maybe i should mention Neil Warnock who was interviewed by Rovers before the standout candidate was appointed. It was said Warnock only wanted a short term role and thus was not considered any further. A season later Warnock is still at Cardiff and top of the championship with four wins from four. Im not saying Cardiff will still be their come next May but they will still be in a better place than Rovers. Proof again that the people running BRFC are still their in the back ground fucking up the most basic things like appointing a reasonable manager. I know there are those who don't like Warnock like they don't like Allardyce. Thing is they have a history of doing well at the clubs they manage. But lets keep employing the nice guys shall we...and keep slipping down the leagues.

To quote Mike Bassett I want to see "four four fucking two":

Raya, Nyambe (if fit), Ward, Mulgrew, Williams, Conway, Evans, Smallwood, Chapman, Samuel, Graham

If Nyambe is out then swap for Caddis.

All I ask from the team is commitment, effort and to create some chances....not too much to ask is it? Oh....and to win :D

Darth, I agree on TM, but he is eleventy-hundred times better than oh-no Coyle.

Whittingham & Graham will come off the bench to win this. Rovers will prevail.

Good poll, btw.

Mulgrew! 2-1

Clearly, the rabbit was correct the first time.

OK I will be cautiously optimistic today. This is just league one and we're only playing MK Dons, lbut this was a very good showing from the club.

We have defenders scoring goals and playing defense. Also, It looks like Samuel is the real deal... we truly haven't needed Graham or Smallwood for the last two, I would not have anticipated that.

We'll see what happens in the near future, but for right now this is somewhat encouraging.
