East and West Stand lower are basically level with the pitch, so you cant see an awful lot. You've no chance of getting 2 together in the west, and the East get segregated for european games and some cup ones.Those prices don't include the cost of cup games, which you are forced to buy. They are set to increase again next season. If you add the cup games it works out at near £2k for a pair and that is without travel + parking. Don't try and make out you have any clue when you clearly dont.

Since Phil is obsessed by stats perhaps he should note how dirty of a team united are.
The possesion was (according to sky) 65 -35 in their favour. Assuming the ball was in play for 65 minutes that means they had the ball for about 42 minutes and we had is for 23 minutes.

United comitted 13 fouls (again according to sky) and we comitted 16. Assuming all fouls occur when you are not is posseion of the ball this means United fouled us every 1.7 minutes and we fouled them every 4 minutes. Talk about trying to kick us out of the game ;) .

People seem to forget that a team is bound to foul more if the opposition have more of the ball. But when you look at it like this, well.......

Also, how come no national paper has picked up on Manu hooligan fans? Over 50 arrests the great majority being United fans. Somone who sits near me parks behind the Darwen end and she was told by the police that they could not gaurantee her safety getting back to the car as they knew that their was a high proability that the United fans would start something.

Phil look. I appreciate that you've come on here to put your side of the argument across....but it's clear that no-one on here sees things your way and will EVER agree with you.

I'm getting this weird feeling of deja vu....in a bit RTT will come on and have a well reasoned rant at you, and then Willy will say something like 'Who the hell IS this guy?", Theadore will come on and say something to difuse the situation and then Blackbat will call you a whiney little fucktard. Then Gouldy and Dan will defend you and say you're 'okay'. ;)

Anyway. Now that's out of the way, can we just leave it until NEXT time we play you please?

Having smuggled a United fan in to sit with us, I found it quite interesting that we agreed on pretty much everything that happened during the game. Rovers looked comfortable until the 75th minute, although United had possession and shots on goal, they didn't seem to have enough to score. But then we sat back to hold on to what we had, and inevitably the equaliser came. It's disappointing that we made the mistake of trying to defend the 1-0 win, but we'd done well to get in that position.

Anyway, it was a really enjoyable game, all the more so for being able to discuss it with the opposition.

Well, I don't know what's been going on but from what I gather it seems like typical arrogance from another plastic fan. But I could be wrong. Can't be arsed sifting through all the cack. 8) :D

Just to keep the predictions correct....who the hell IS this guy???!! ;)

I managed to watch the game on Setanta and I was convinced we were gonna get pasted. How wrong I was.

Warnock put in possibly the performance of the season against Ronaldo. Not to mention the rest of the team doing well to keep him quiet. I thought we were fantastic in every department and I haven't been as disgusted/annoyed when Tevez scored as I was when Ballack scored in the semi-final a while back. No way did that little Hillman Imp deserve that goal. I was sitting watching it with two Man Utd fans and a Burnley fan and apart from one arrogant son of a Glazer, the other two conceded that we deserved more than a point. We were brilliant and I was proud to be a Rovers fan on Saturday, more so than the usual Saturday.

I can't say I'm too arsed who wins the league, never have been since we stopped challenging for it. But if Man Utd go to Chelsea and confirm their title win then I'd be pretty pissed off that we 'helped' them with a totally undeserved point.

The real kick in the 'nads is that whilst we've worked hard to get a point, Birmingham and Portsmouth gave easy points to Villa and Shitty. I was hoping they'd both do us a favour and give us a chance of the Intertoto. I just hope they play the same way against us. :evil:

I didn't even know those results until this morning when my cab to work had a sports station on the radio. Pretty disappointing, really. Teams play far worse than we've played all season and still manage to finish higher. Without sounding like too much of a grumpy git, things just haven't gone our way this season and it's through no fault of our own, really.

It's going to be an interesting summer and an even more interesting '08-'09 season.

You say it's £1000+ for a season ticket when it isn't. Perhaps you should say exactly what you mean before saying other people don't have a clue. Just makes you look like a dick.

It's been an odd season. We could conceivably finish in 9th place with 61 points, a total that would have brought CL football in 2004 or 2005. Early in the season, I thought we needed to target 60 points to guarantee European football - but then I expected Villa and Shitty to fall away a bit, and at least one cup place to get transferred to the league. It just hasn't worked out that way, the crap teams at the bottom haven't started fighting for their lives like they usually do, the teams in the top half (including us) have consistently picked up points.

I am a little concerned about the emphasis put on finishing in the Euro places, and if it will affect our squad. Because we've been better than last season even though through good fortune we did get European football last year. It's not a consistent mark of achievement.
