Henning keeps saying Rhodes needs support but nobody gives it! Where is his help? Why are they not training with support for Rhodes? Now we can't even score a goal.

0. 2 from bad to worse. Burnley fans will be sitting smugly at home laughing their heads off. Or are we saving our efforts for Sunday?

At least after this performance Shebby will realise that even Sir Alex couldn't get this lot to play. Come January it will take a complete clear out to rebuild the Rovers around Rhodes.

For Burnley's game they need to drop formica , rochina, ethuhu, they dont look like players who want to challenge for every ball, they just want to stroll through and let others to the donkey work, they gave up.

At the moment it is agreed rovers are just too ponderous and over-complicated, passing the ball for passing sake without the end product, i think berg's hand will be forced and i see changes, there are players in the squad who havent had a chance to prove themselves.
