Discuss all things Rovers related except...

Are we another victim from a mauling?

We would need to ask Martin Mull to mull on it

I know a lot of things about mauling. I have done a lot of mauling myself, a lot of people would call me the Mauler in Chief. I have maulings that are now written in history books, to the likes of which they have never seen before. The one time I mauled someone so bad, he told me "you have such great mauling ability, you maul so great." So ever since, people know of my ability to maul. It's a very popular thing, mauling someone. That is why I am making an executive order to maul the opponent and to Make Unicorns Great Again!

Oh man, I didn’t anticipate this...
Its early yet.
Hey, at least we didn’t concede early!

Any other answer besides Africa as the best Toto song are wrong, FACT!
I would agree, if not for, “99”. 99 is the best of Toto. And, what is 99? WHO is 99?! The possibilities are endless.
I don't think so. You are dillusional if you think that. Did 99 bless a whole continent? Did they hear the drums echoing tonight? Do they seek to cure what's deep inside, freightened of this thing that anyone has become?

Plain and simple, there is nothing that 100 men or more could ever do. Last time I checked, 100 is greater than 99, therefore Africa is the best song.

Now onto the match at hand. Best 45 I have seen all season. Flying start, high press, not giving Hull a chance to get a build up started, Rodwell looking supreme at centreback. This is a very exciting side to see, stuff that can push us forward to playoffs.

First time I won't harp on Bell. He has done well thus far at left back. Bennett is the only one who has been putting misplaced long balls across field so far. If Rovers can keep the pressure up, get another goal or 2, this will be a fantastic victory in all regards. Need to keep making up that goal differential.

Hoping Smallwood stays on the bench. Just want to see some of the other guys.

Barring a furious late charge by Tigers, this is one of our most complete games of the season.

Three great games in a row. Gotta feel good about these Rovers. Sitting in 8th now.

Clean sheet, leap Hull in the standings, knock on 3 goals onto the goal differential, absolutely needed. Wasn't expecting this dominant performance, but it happened and couldn't be happier.

Rodwell really pushing for Mulgrew's spot, would love to see his contract renewed if this is what to expect from him.

I’ll keep this short and sweet. Absolutely outstanding from rovers today. The most complete performance I have seen for a number of years. A delight to watch this afternoon.

Very impressed. Really expected a much tougher test from the form team of the division but Raya had so little to do.

Got to give a nod to the back 4 again with 3 clean sheets on the spin. And again Armstrong scored again and his rebound for the third.

Really good stuff. I think the nicest thing is knowing that we don’t have to think about relegation and there’s no pressure on us to make the play offs what so ever despite Mowbray mentioning. We can play approach games confidently and total freedom which is great.

Is this our best starting 11... even without Mulgrew?

If so, TM has hit upon the winning formula. Maybe we can keep this going at Brentford.

Also something to note was Reed and Armstrong constantly switching positions throughout the match. It had a substantial impact on Hull's defending I think.

I really hope their is a clause in Reed's contract. He has been an absolute unit.

The first half was the best I've seen Rovers play for a couple of years - or more.
They mad Hull look poor.
A couple of the lads sitting near me said they prefer Rodwell to Mulgrew. Whoever would have thought that?
I think I'd sooner see him in midfield beside Travis, who just gets better and better.
I think we've got ourselves a football team!

I wouldn’t be that prescriptive. Things are good and we have a healthy squad with options. I’ve watched Sunderland til I die on Netflix which is great but it doesn’t paint a good picture of Rodwell and yet he’s been very good for us. That’s just one of many things to be positive about.

We go to Brentford next Saturday and last time we were there we won and got relegated. So it’ll be quite nice to go there and just give it a go and not be too concerned whether we win lose or draw.
