Waco, good use of boxing terminology in the half season review. If i may if there was going to be any heavy weights in league one this season it was going to be Wigan and Rovers. Shrewsbury for all their bravado will eventually lack clout in the transfer market this month and this will benefit Rovers. Both Rovers and Wigan are only going to get better has the season reaches its climax. The quality in Rovers squad now will secure second place at least without doubt. With three new additions namely Armstrong, Payne and your namesake Bell we now have enough quality. Add to that the eventual return of Chapman, Antonsson and Lenihan things are definitely on the up. Only thing that does worry me and we do slip up and have to suffer the trial of the play offs is this league like others chucks up an unlikely winner via that route. Millwall last season who finished sixth i think. Watch out for Rotherham this season. Lastly a suggestion for a theme for your end of season review. Instead of boxing how about a Porno movie!

Two home matches in four days (Northampton and Walsall) might see us begin to close up on Wigan and pull away from Shrewsbury. I just hope we can raise our game against the teams in the lower end of the division.

Thanks guys, I appreciate you reading. It's hard to talk about one sport, without drawing upon other sports for illustrations. Boxing, and racing seem to be handy. Even the apostle Paul drew upon his love of sports to talk about weightier matters- running the race, winning the prize, etc.

I have a lot to learn on strategy, and even basics on each position. I appreciate everybody's patience with me here at Roverstalk, and I have learned a great deal from you. Writing has always been fun to me.

Of course, if we get promoted at season's end, I won't really have an outlet for writing, like d3d4football.com has given me (good problem to have, though!)

This is my last year in the service of Unk Sam; I hope to take a retirement trip to England next fall. It will be the first time I've been there since 2009. I look forward to meeting many of you in person, and enjoying a Rovers game together!

Good review of the season thus far. Pretty much covered everything good bad and ugly. I think you made an error on naming Elliot Ward as the muscle, as he hasn't been featured much.

Boxing analogies isn't up my alley, but I can respect it. I think the writing overall is really good, and obviously you put time into it. I do like how you mention certain cornerstone moments of the season which defines the character of the squad.

Thanks, Thor & Gibbon.

Yes, I needed to do more fact-checking on Ward. But, I figured if I was wrong somewhere, one of you would gently point it out. :lol:
