Time is a human construct, therefore not applicable to Kestrels and gibbons

I agree, in terms of having any hopes at all of moving up the table, being in position for playoffs, etc. I don’t think any Rovers fan would be happy with a point- unless they love mid table finishes.

Win this one, then some of the ones afterwards appear winnable, then get Dacky back, anything is possible.

I love mid table finishes. It's the hope that kills you.

This is the best league anyway, wouldn't want to scrap for a mid table finish in the Premier League anyway.

I'd live with that. I don't ascribe to the need to be at the pinnacle of the sport if I can enjoy the football played at the level we're at. Promotions are nice but I'm never sure the flush of success is worth the pain of expectation. If we went into the PL and finished mid table, suddenly everyone would be expecting us to be in Europe :roll:

Aren't we still aiming for the Champions League when we bring in Ronaldinho?

In some ways it’s a shame; I’ve always wanted to see Steve Waggott visit a Paraguayan prison to tap up a player.

A win is a win. That was, by far, the worst win I have seen. Rotherham will be walking away angry that they didn't at least get a point.

But it's a win. Garbage time winner.

Fuck Rotherham. If anti-football and industrial scale time wasting is how you want to play, then conceding 98th minute goals are just punishment

I never felt so pissed to watch 90 minutes.
