Return to Waco. England is big, but not as big as Texas. We’re big, bigger than nearly the biggest state in these United States. We’re so big, we’ve got lands that haven’t been mapped, explored, or conquered. We’re so big, we were once our own Republic, the only state big enough to be that big, but small enough to be friendly. Our bigness is only exceeded by our friendliness... oh, and arrogance/smugness about our bigness. Did I mention Texas is big?

Lots of non-footie options; due to the fact I omitted a poll for the last game, trying to make it up to you now.

One of the rare fixtures where there will be an expectation that we should win.

If we perform well we should certainly be in with a good chance of getting a 3rd win on the spin and getting to 16 points, depending on other results, puts us right up in the mixer nearer to the top.

Only Stoke and Huddersfield have conceded more goals than Luton who have yet to keep a clean sheet in the league, they've let in 16 in 8 matches. If there was ever an opportunity to get a bright start in a game and a good win hopefully it is tomorrow.

Interesting to see who gets the nod in this game as Rothwell was due to start ahead of Armstrong at Reading, but you'd probably want to keep Armstrong in to build on his goal. Downing has been excellent but perhaps an opportunity to rest him and got a little more attacking with Rothwell and Armstrong as the wide forwards.

Gallagher could really do with a league goal too.

Night shift has me knackered boys, I letting you down.

On the other hand, this is a solid poll.

Luton started the season strong, but I think they are coming back down to reality.

Mcteeth, good thoughts on the buildup to this match.

Thor, not a strong poll. Even though I submitted my two votes, I was somewhat discouraged and put off by the limited lack of imagination by the poller. He must be from some backwater/rural place in the southwestern United States. :lol:

Jokes on you because everything in the south is backwater.

This is a big game for Rovers. Maybe not as big as Texas but sizeable. Maybe Rhode Island sized.

Rothwell still unwell. So pretty much our best XI with Johnson back in for Evan's.

Samuel on the bench :hyper:

Ha, bigger than Rhode Island, maybe like New Jersey... or maybe Kansas. Not as big as Georgia, though

Need to at least get to half time level. They concede a lot of goals so hopefully panic stations will kick in if we get one.
