This is a toughie, nearly impossible to predict. So I won’t. But I sense a resurgence in Rovers resolve to carry us to the season finale until we know for sure they won’t make playoffs.

They won’t; or will they?

Line-up wise I'd like to see something like:

Walton
Nyambe-Lenihan-Tosin-Downing
Travis-Johnson
JRC-Rothwell-Armstrong
Graham

Keep most of the Cardiff team but play JRC on wing, let Downing deputise at LB, I would say Davenport or Buckley in midfield but Johnson was so good second half at Cardiff

Pork scratchings you mean?

I think we will win this by the way. Which is probably bad news.

Igor Tudor you mean?

Also, how big a bag do you need to carry a Roman tart? Are there air holes for her?

Given that it's unlikely to happen I think it helps not playing with the pressure of getting into the play-offs. We can just try and give WBA a good game and see what happens elsewhere.

We've equaled our wins from last season and finished on 60 points. On 59 currently so would be nice to see some progress and try to get as many points as possible. Finish strongly well inside the top 10.

Think Mowbray will go with the same starting XI as Cardiff and hopefully we see the same Bradley Johnson from the second half.

Pork skins in the U.S.

Igor Tudor... I don’t know how I misspelled, my apologies.

I like the lineup, Dutch. I think with our available players, that’s as good as Technical & creativity will get us.

I read Williams & Bell are done for the season.... what is wrong with them?

Williams has a calf strain that's been an issue on and off for a while it seems. Bell has a thigh strain and is close to fitness than Williams but probably not within 2 weeks.

Thanks, mcteeth. Any idea if either of these guys are Rovers next season? For my money, Williams moreso than Bell

We picked up Bell's option and Williams is under contract, sales seem unlikely in current economy but we'll see

Yeah as said I think they'll both be with us next season. Not a huge fan of Williams and certainly not at left back.

Feel like I'm one of the few that really rates Bell, yes defensively he's been shaky in some games but was really making that position his own before lockdown. He's great going forward just needed to improve the defensive side of his game.

Fulham just took the lead against Cardiff :hyper:

It would be nice to win out the rest of the season, and see where we land. However, we are playing a strong team, then 2 weaker teams which will no doubt beat us.
