How do you think Rovers have performed off the field so far this season?

I THINK Rovers have done very well in getting rid of the players they have had to get rid of.

Apart from Dickson Etuhu and Leon Best, I don’t think we could have expected anything more.

And I think we’ve signed good players, like Craig Conway, who looks like the kind of direct winger we have needed.

Hopefully Venky’s have finally seen what they need to be doing.


THE Venky family may these days be hidden from sight but their looming inevitability can still be sensed. Let us hope they remain in the background.

Gary Bowyer’s comments about Craig Conway – ‘he fits the bill of what we are after, good people first and foremost, and then obviously good footballers’ – were music to my ears.

The club needs a settled atmosphere.

The club is finally on an upward curve and getting some of those with bloated wages off the payroll will have helped.


WE seem to have gone from one extreme to the other – weekly crises being replaced by deafening silences.

I would like to know what the future of Shebby Singh is.

Hopefully we have entered a period of stability that will allow the manager to consolidate the progress we appear to be making.

Perhaps ‘no news is good news’ is the relevant adage thinking back to the anarchy and mayhem we previously inflicted upon ourselves.

‘Patience is a virtue’ – and we are all going to need it.
