Well, that's all very interesting, forget Bradford, let's hear about US uni's...

Seeing as we're a few thousand miles off topic I feel it should be OK to tell you all that I'm off to meet some dodgy people in a dodgy town as I type on the bus. Oh and I keep having having dreams where Eminem shows up, and in these dreams he raps lines I have never heard and they make sense, so I suppose my brain is capable of rapping like Eminem? Pretty sweet eh?
I do write rhymes as it happens, I just get tongue-tied if I try to articulate what I write.

While I'm here sorry to do this guys... I'm going to talk Rovers V Bradford :/
I hope for a win but worry we will drop points, my fivers on a draw. I just feel Bradford are due a small turn around in fortune and Rovers historically have been the team to play if you need to break a bad habit.

I'm not sure it's a good thing that we haven't played for over two weeks, bit worried about having a rusty start and that Mulgrew played 90 minutes yesterday.

We shall get back on topic. Nyambe is said to be recovering from his injury and running, and Chapman is out for the season.

I expect Downing and Lenihan to start in central due to Mulgrew playing a match just last night. But who knows how he feels after it.

I do hope he can play some part, he is a massive leader and deadball wizard

Yet another Rovers televised match. OK for away fans I suppose but it does the attendance no good at all.

Super excited for Rovers to be back in action. Should be interesting who is announced in the starting line up.

Well Mowbray needs to decide what to do about RB and whether to push Bennett out there, equally decide on how to use Mulgrew over the two Easter fixtures. It would seem likely he'll only start one of the games.

He played 82 minutes 6 days ago, then 90 minutes 2 days ago as well as travelling to and from Hungary. I'd probably opt to have him on the bench tonight and then start him at MK Dons on Monday. Looking forward to watching the game tonight and going the MK Dons game on Monday :hyper:

The team I'd expect to see tonight would be:

------------------Raya
Bennett Downing Lenihan Williams
-----------Evans Smallwood
Payne----------Dack------Armstrong
----------------Graham

So that’s probably:

———————————Raya————————————
Bennett———Lenihan———Williams———Bell
——————-Smallwood——Evans————————
———Samuel————Dack———Armstrong———
—————————Antonsson———————————

?

Yeah but Samuel would be up top and Antonsson wide?

Graham has a back problem apparently but will be fine for Monday.

I expect us to get a lot of joy with our pace against Warnock and Kilgallon.
