Just hope the place is rocking tomorrow night. The pitch by all accounts doesn't seem to be as ready as it should be. Not ideal. Hopefully we will get over the line with a win tomorrow.

Just had a look at the rovers squad stats. Lot of people bigging them up but there are a lot of youngsters/and newbies to Rovers. Will be a lot of pressure on them and the manager.

No probs giving bit of boos etc to ex DFC lads. Was disappointed that Meenan lost his way in the final yr cos he was Mr Assist in 2015 and gave great service. He seems to get a bit bored after a couple of years. Finn was great for us but he is a hooped minion now and will get deserved stick. Is he fully fit?

I worry for young O'Connor. Don't know the lad but heard he is saying he is going to come back and haunt us. By all accounts he is a bit of a Billy Bungalow - needs to keep quiet and do his talking on the pitch (after the game Friday of course).

Cant wait to get going. If we are up to speed and gel I would be confident of the win. its a tough opening sequence and we need to get off to good start to build confidence/trust within the squad.

Then Bradley is a tool and is not helping the player.

He didn't say it in the Argus - he said it in a public place followed by a few expletives blaming the club for in his opinion scuppering his move to Sheffield United over compensation.

Your favourite player kilduff might be fit and if not isn't Stewart a striker?

Agree
What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.

Morning Chappies, we'll have up to 700 in Oriel tonight and i expect us to win or draw. It's going to be the biggest away crowd seen in years and hopefully all goes well off the plastic pitch. I hear there's rain on the way but so what you've upgraded the away end out of that billions you got for Europe...NOT, singing in the rain it is so, kip.

The away end is still a kip nothing done and you only got 500 tickets no money taking at the gate
