I'll echo that.

Keep issues in house. There's better ways as senior players they can voice their displeasure behind closed doors
Displaying poor form and attitude on the pitch hurts the fans and in turn the club financially.
They're professional sportsmen, use common sense to deal with the problems.
The players are part of this process and equally as culpable, no excuses.
If it wasn't for TS appointment I'd have probably not renewed my pass.
Well done the players for making a point on the field :CRAZY:


To keep pass sales up is probably one of the reasons TS was appointed. I wonder how the FC fans who spent many happy hours decrying TS’s poor signings are feeling now?

Also feeling happy about his appointment.
What do your signings have to do with us?
He was given a directive I'm sure at Rovers and a budget on which to do it hence why you signed so many championship players particularly from Bradford.

I personally aren't interested in Rovers and who you sign.

Smith is the Hull coach and I'll judge him on how he performs for us not what he did at the last little club he coached at.

Well put.

I mean, I'll point out things like the last time Rovers won a trophy was during the first half of Queen Elizabeth II's long reign (she was in her fifties at the time) but aside from that I'm not particularly interested. Certainly not with regards who they've signed.

Are they now using Rovers Wembley win as a reference point in the history curriculum akin to the Roman invasion and the Great Fire of London.

I understand completely the banter and even have over the years tried to appreciate why exactly supporters from another team want to go on a rivals teams site to gloat after a Derby victory although on both counts it really seems futile. But I can't really comprehend the under tones of envy and bitterness that seems to come through with some Rovers supporters (not all) still after a week posting on here when we have signed a guy who was out of work and whose last employers (their team) seemed to everyone to have driven him out of his last position there. They have a new coach arriving have apparently signed the best incoming stars and are being hailed as the top club in the city at present. pretty sad really but I think they should move on.

That post engender a lot of bites. Most naturally off topic. I was only pointing out that TS’s success in signings is not that good. Better than Hodgson’s admittedly but that would not be difficult.

It happens on all sites. FC fans are as guilty as any others. If they look at the present and not continue to live in the past they and you would see that for the last two years we have been the top club in the city. Long may it continue. Looking forward to more bites.
