Does anyone get intimidated by the dirty pigeons?

There have been pigeons, many pigeons I have known, who are intimidating. They are bigly scary. They intimidate on a big league scale, to the likes of which no one has ever seen. I mean, these pigeons, they are big. They do a lot, like a lot of intimidating. I have had a lot of these pigeons come near me, and had them investigated. Sure, I asked someone for a favor, but these pigeons were intimidating me. It seemed, and I don't know for sure really, but it seemed to me there was some collusion. And a little bit of obstruction. But a lot of collusion, these pigeons. These pigeons are really intimidating. That's why I am issuing an executive order to end the intimidating from pigeons and to Make Pigeons Great Again!

I think just getting a draw would be considered a success at this point. A win would really put out some fires.

Preston is a team that appears to be moving upward, under apparent strong leadership; we do not appear to be going anywhere. Maybe down. Its too early to say.

Yes, a point at Deepdale would give me reason for great rejoicing. Three points, giddiness bordering on hysteria.

Preston have one of the best home records in the league. It is going to be tough.

This is the most negative I've felt before a match this season. Let's hope it's 'darkest just before the dawn'.

Have to agree, this is just a how much will we lose by match to me. I'm hoping we can just get a couple goals from our strikers.

We are 16th on the table; 16th in goals scored; and 15th in goals allowed. It will be amazing if we are in any of these places after the next three games.

Agreed. But part of that for me is what happened last season.

Southampton 0v9 Leicester...i hope it isn't a weekend of heavy defeats for struggling teams. From a Preston point of view there probably isn't a better time to play Rovers.

Team
Walton
Nyambe Tosin Williams Bell
Evans Bennet
Armstrong Rothwell
Dack Gallagher

So the best player on the pitch against Birmingham (Buckley doesn't get a start, but Evans does as Travis is dropped.
Don't fancy this side at all.

To be fair Travis and Johnson we’re both shit against Birmingham. Not sure Bennett should be in there, I wonder if a Buckley/ Davenport combination would bear fruit?

You just don't drop Travis. Fearing same error as QPR as we look horribly lightweight in defensive midfield without him.

Stunned that Gallagher starts again.

Agreed; Travis is def one of our 11. Oh well, maybe he subs in to pull our arse outta the fire

WHAT A START! Sam Gallagher gets a much needed first goal of the season, beautiful header from an Arma cross. 1-0 Rovers!
