2000-2001 in the Championship when we won 6 in a row (and then drew one before winning another). The sort of form that gets you promoted that is ;)

If we are able to win away 1-0 against Scunthorpe, I am pretty confident about Rovers chance to win this. Plus, it will show this squad is capable of putting a good run together, very early in the season.

I like our squad; we're on a nice run; & I believe Mowbray is the right guy to get us back on track to relevancy.

We had a great crowd at Rochdale. Hopefully, Ewood will be rockin' for this one!

It's funny to think Rovers will have better attendance this year than the year before possibly. I will take it though, need every bit of revenue they can get.

I wouldn't mind the idea of keeping the rotation going, it seems to work preventing injuries. Hopefully another win to keep the streak alive (I credit that to me living near a Cleveland baseball team that has a 21 win streak going).

It as been some time that you expect Rovers to win a game. Not only that but also you expect Rovers to win handsomely. Gone have the memories of those two defeats at Southend and Doncaster. Not even a mention of that defeat to the neighbours recently. Nope we seem more than happy to rejoice in thumping Rochdale and MK Dons. Wimbledon up next for the slaughter. This kind of reminds me of a previous life where the Saturday afternoon entertainment was a trip down the colasium to watch the lions maul to death all those pesky Christians. Maybe the Rovers mascot could do a reenactment?...OK maybe not but any Wimbledon supporter brave enough to make the long trip up north must be soft in the head to think their team can threaten Rovers winning run. Maybe I am over confident. Hell we have had long enough thinking I hope we don't get beat today. My confidence is even more so that Craig Conway will return for this game. It's noticeable that he was absent for the two defeats we had. People go on on about Mulgrew but I always feel happy about Conway playing has he provides the ammo for whoever fancies scoring. So what is it going to be. 1nil 2nil 3 or 4?...I am going for 3 nil to Rovers.

Man, darth, I love your positivity.

Me? I'm not quite there yet, but you have seen a great deal more rovers football than me.

I must say, todays starting 11 seems rather strange...oh well it may work out, who knows
