Every poll should be included. Except the ones by fake news. They are just bad, bad hombres. They don't like me in their polls. And their polls are never honest. I am always honest. I have always been honest. I never told a lie, bigly. The fake news has been telling big league lies about me. That's all they do is lie. Big lies. Ocean sized lies. But that's why we need to include all the polls. The polls about me are always 100% true. They tell the best things about me, because I only have great things to do. I never do anything wrong. That's why I am making an executive order to direct the poll takers to have multiple options to choose, to Make Poll Taking Great Again!

We’re going to the Reading game
I'll be there too. Have persuaded my Liverpool supporting mate to follow us over the last 2 seasons so he will be coming along with his lad for his first game. My boys first away game following the home Boro win, fingers crossed he is a lucky omen.
We got tickets in Section 26, row 10. We had to order from Reading, we weren’t able to order from Blackburn site.

We tried, but couldn’t buy them on Rovers site. It said there was nothing available.

It's done that to me before, when buying tickets for an away match last season. Choosing 'any section' (or however they word it) brought up nothing available, picking a certain section or area brought up loads of free seats. :shrug:

Yeah, I’m just thrilled to be making it to my first Rovers game.
I think Mrs. Waco is even a bit excited about it!

I appreciate y’alls forbearance with my youthful zeal. Now, back to pre-match Rovers’ footie talk:
Samuel in training, Tosin, & Davenport also, Mowbray has lots of options for Millwall. We need some points, hopefully, things are looking up for a fit squad, at home, vs a scrappy Lions bunch.

I still can't believe the poll doesn't include being bigger than the Romans.

Feels like a match where we could try to assert the progressive style of play Mowbray has been trying to develop. I would expect Millwall to come and frustrate us looking to nick a goal and would be happy with a draw.

There is no point in us trying to play direct with Cooper in defence for them as an absolute giant we've done that before and watched him win everything in the air.

Personally I'd like to see Armstrong, Dack, Rothwell supporting Gallagher and look to play through Millwall. But I can't see Downing being dropped so it may well be 1 of Armstrong or Rothwell, but for me Rothwell needs to be started.

But most importantly you wonder who is bigger than the Romans?

Right?

Where are we roaming too?

Interesting selection today. Don't know how it will line up, but it goes

Walton, Adaraboiyo, Williams, Lenihan, Cunningham, Bennett, Johnson, Buckley, Dack, Armstrong, Downing.

A weird 3-5-1-1 looks like. Cunningham and Bennett as wing backs. Dack in behind Armstrong.

How on earth is Travis on the bench. If there was ever a game you needed some work rate and snapping into challenges. :shrug:

Pure lightning from Williams! Long range shot from Derrick Williams rifles into the bottom right corner, 1-0 Rovers.

Half-time, Rovers still up 1-0. Williams bolting shot is the difference thus far. Pretty good half with this new setup, playing 3 at the back. Williams really shines in this system because he can play on the ball. Buckley has made his name known with the passes and interceptions he is making. Otherwise, everyone is having a good half, bar Armstrong who is having a quiet first half. Adaraboiyo is looking pretty comfortable back there too, maybe if he pushes up like Williams does, this formation can be really threatening.

If there is one thing I think this team can do better is get some shots on goal. Make the Millwall goalkeeper make some saves, create an extra opportunity off a deflection.
