What exactly does ‘Fleetwood’ mean?

Duh! Back in the old days that’s what horses were made of

Let me tell you, our wood is the fastest wood, bigly. No other country has wood as fast as us, their wood is chipboard with veneer, FAKE WOOD. SHITHOLE WOOD. And is it fast? Not as fast as our wood. Making league one wood great again!

Dominating the first half. A lot of attempts, very good on the ball and with the passing. Keep it up and an easy 3 points follows.

Now that we are sitting second in the promotion spot, just need to keep carrying on this unbeaten run. 19 more matches to play, signed on some quality depth, if we can get another central midfielder, I think we will be okay.

Well that was last game of the season stuff. Two goals in two different games and a four point swing. Anyway....2nd 8-)

My Rovers' friends...
If you get an opportunity, check out my midseason post on d3d4football.com. Critique freely, as I need to know if the coverage is any good. But, truthfully, Rovers are making it easy to write about at present 8-)

Brilliant win again deserved more than a single goal lead at half time. What's becoming so pleasing is the winning attitude of the team, whenever we have a set back it isn't that sense of disappointment it's just straight to going to win the game.

Nice to see Payne come on and get an assist.

Finally Shrewsbury slip up. So we're in the automatic promotion spots on goal difference. In our hands now!

Theybdid but we'd already slipped up meaning we were only undoing our own slip up. Slippily.

Looking at the goal Rovers conceded you can blame Mulgrew for not looking before trying to find Raya with a back pass. Look just before that and you will see Williams in two or three minds what to do with the ball and eventually put Mulgrew under pressure with a pass to him. Maybe a better left back would have dealt with the situation.
