We've started but certainly can't finish! Rovers' season is 180 minutes old and not even the harshest critic would say thay haven't shown the endeveour and created the scoring chances to get something out of both games. At Sunderland on Saturday, lady luck wore a red and white shirt. But a couple of dubious decisions from Alan Wiley was not the sole reason Rovers returned from the North East with nothing.
We had more chances than Peter Mandelson has had to return to Government! But rarely did our strikers hit the target. This will prove to be the downfall to any team in this league. Kalinic, 'The future of Croatian football', was ridiculed for his misses on MOTD but it is far too early to make judgements.However,the name of Grabbi was brought up in conversations as a comparison after the game. Scary stuff!
Gillingham in the League Cup on Tuesday will be a chance to gain some much needed confidence and I think Big Sam should give his first choice strikers the chance to have some shooting practice. I've always enjoyed the early stages of this competition, it gives us the chance to get away from the pressure and problems of the Prem League and also gives the opportunity to visit new and different grounds.
Latest....According to various sources, Warnock is on his way to Villa. I only wish it was Neil!
