Discuss all things Rovers related except...

If Leeds led with lead, who's leading the charge?

Should be an interesting one with Leeds in 3rd place. Leeds only have 1 loss on the season, and quite a potent attacking squad.

I think that would be a positive result considering Leeds position thus far. Obviously, a win would be fantastic but Leeds have a fantastic squad and manager this season.

One of my fav matches, Rovers v Leeds. Their supporters fill up all the Darwen end of the ground.

I have a buddy here in Waco that's a Leeds fan; he already said they will fall apart & not get promoted. He's as pessimistic as our fans, lol

So bizarrely the Chinese super league game is on live tomorrow lunchtime whilst our game is a red-button affair. Scratching my head at that one tbh :?

Why? Stupid money in the Chinese league and money is all that tv sport is about.

Surely the championship audience in the UK is bigger though.

If we can survive the early pressing and onslaught I think we can give them a game. They do have Roofe, Hernandez and Berardi all back so are at full strength.

Sounds like Nyambe and Mulgrew could be okay to start.

Quick turnovers of possession and catching them on the break will be really important and a weakness of theirs. Think it’ll be important to have players like Reed and Rothwell who can win the ball and get it forward quickly.

This. Not all about TV dollars, it’s about whose actually gonna be watching.

I’d rather watch the MLS or my Nan get undressed than the Chinese super league in all fairness.

In all fairness I have seen one of those over the Chinese Super League and it is thrilling.
