    Oh what joy to see proper football after two years of dross! Don't let them score. Give them a lesson in how to play the beautiful game.

    Sky are raving about Rhodes being a top class striker, not a term you associate with Charlie Flash in the pan Austin. Marcus Olssons final ball is disappointing, good job brother Martin can put a quality delivery in the six yard area.

    Can't wait to get my ticket for next home game. Henning Berg's blue and white army. Mick Mc who? How can one man change a group of under performing players into this united team in just two weeks? What a difference. If Kean is watching...see how a proper manager works.

    Funny how the team can win a game when it sets out to actually win one (ie play 2 up front).....you injured Harwoodstblue or are you on PR duty?? Just that I noticed you're not on the bench alongside your buddy French Rover (the other Sam hater).
    .
    Peterborough away...wouldn't let yourself get too excited Mr Cryer!! We all know Peterborough are a very poor team...but we also know the syndicate will not allow the club to get promoted. It's just convenient to get a convincing win a week before the official launch of the Rovers Trust.....
    .
    Still need more players in January by any chance???

    ......Hi Diamonds, You seem to have a "problem" with me. What is it ?

    If you look back into the history of my posts you will see I've been highly critical of Kean and Venkys all along.
    .
    If I seem more positive now it's because after two years of the circus, I can now see a slight improvement on the field. It's early days yet so we'll have to see if that continues.
    .
    As I've said before, as for as conspiracy theories are concerned I'm keeping an open mind.

    Isn't it funny how the game can be manipulated in order for more clubs to get promoted to the PL, benefit from lucrative TV rights money and then more money goes to agents in transfer commission and weekly player commission payments.....

    I don't know how you have the brass neck, what about an apology to Berg and for saying Mick Mcarthy was the man. Ipswich demolished today and you keep papping on about Bergs record. Well just for you thats now one defeat in four whereas Mcarthy has three defeats in four. Speaks volumes for your knowledge of the game.
    You are obviously still a bit nutty

    Andy Cryer wasn't it....?? and a number of Rovers supporters who voted in the LET poll. Wow...a draw at home to bottom 3 opposition last week and a win against rock bottom Peterborough today. Fancy playing a second striker up front with Rhodes...Berg must be a footballing genius!!!! Such a shame he didn't figure it out a little sooner...same goes for Eric Black!!! But then Rovers aren't supposed to get promoted are they?? This was just a convenient win before the launch of the Rovers Independent Supporters Trust next week.....PROVE THE DOUBTERS WRONG AND LET'S SEE THE CLUB GET PROMOTED...I DARE YOU!!!
