Its funny how everyone was saying how terrible 4-3-3 was before but now everyone wants to use it again and in an away match. Im happy if he plays the same team but i think its possible dc will play an extra midfield player instead of rory at gillingham.
Yes you could be right, we could set up like we were against Rotherham (slightly more defensive) look to keep it tight for the first half then unleash our very own ginga ninja in the second half! That could work quite well for away games.
Same again for me please! If it ain't broke don't try and fix it.
Really liked that set up yesterday, the one change of bringing in Gaffers in just added the extra potency in attack that we needed building on the solid selection we had the week before.
Absolutely loved watching Ellis, Rory, Sercs and Bodin playing together, they gave the shrimpers defence a torrid time.
Glad DC has finally seen sense and put Nichols on the bench instead of Gaffers. Nichols should have to earn his way back into the starting 11, he has been given more than enough opportunities so far this season.
Thoroughly enjoyed the game today, we were solid as you like, this was more like the Bristol Rovers we know and love.
Apart from one or two balls that came in our box it never felt like we were in danger.
Partington is making one hell of a difference to the team in the position he is playing. You can see him shouting and organising the team from the centre of the pitch, geeing them up and encouraging all the players, basically he is our de facto captain.
Have they changed the set up buying seat tickets online, we used to be able to pick seats on line on where we wanted to sit if they were available, it seems now its the ticket sales office who nominate where you sit, I don't want to sit right at the front and get soaked from the tent, every time I try its right at the front what ever the game, to me they made it worse for the supporter trying to get tickets
Just checked the website and seat reservation is still available for me. I'm a ST holder so haven't had to book tickets for a while. It looks like they have improved the stadium/stand graphics tbh. Are you using the mobile site? I'm not sure I have ever been able to select seats on a mobile device, perhaps try switching to the desktop site or using a computer instead of a mobile.
Our corners are bad enough (too predictable and always slow balls in) but throw ins are awful.
It seems we never have anyone ready to receive the ball that is unmarked, we often loose possession or the advantage and we take bloody ages to make up our mind what we want to do so they always slow the pace of the game down. I am a Browner fan but this is one part of his game that needs improvement imo.
I'm on the fence, but not the one running around the colony!
For respect read "faith / trust" as I definitely respect them.
Since Hamer's recent RB interview my expectations are now very low indeed. I feel disappointed with the situation like we all probably do. However I've not completely lost all faith, just I have a lot less than I did before the interview.
My focus now is to support the lads and DC to turn things around on the pitch as that's the only way I'm going to get the feel good factor back.
I think you make a fair point but I think the bigger issue is that we seem to also have the same problem with the club's from the lower leagues! Notts County, Swindon, Barrow just some of the recent examples.
Another Gaffers fan here, just love the way he stands so firm against the opposition to win the long balls in the air.
I find it strange that he's not started more games considering the fact he is one of our highest scorers this season.
He could do with being a little bit more selfish at times and I wish he would get himself in the box more often.
I think Rory has unfortunately been a victim of the fact that Ellis has been so consistently strong this season meaning DC probably wants to repay his hard work and keep his confidence building. Also the fact that we spent 300k on Nichols who would otherwise make a very expensive bench warmer!
