Up and up we go Rover's up, go down Burnley bottom of the table no experience in top league like Rovers 18 years in PL.

So.... rovers playing well, Rhodes bid snubbed with a statement message from the owners, dingles 2 losses in 2 and rock bottom of the PL... Hmm, where's super claret or turdmoor Tom, or whatever personality his illness has picked today?? Still though, I'll not be going to taunt the idiots on the dingle pages, mainly because it will ruin it for the true claret fans....

Well that was interesting, Bournemouths midfield didn't give us a kick for ten minutes, fortunately their forwards have no finishing ability and soon Jordan did what Jordan does and exploited a hesitant defence and dodgy keeper. After that Rovers quickly stepped up a gear, made excellent use of two wide men and went in 3-0 up and looking confident attacking a very shaky defence.

Second half Bournemouth got organised, rallied again and with nothing to lose really gave it a go. Rovers seemed set to try to see the game out rather than battle for more goals but faltered courtesy of another dodgy penalty decision. Fortunately Bournemouths front men couldn't get them over the line and what should have been about 4-0 ended up a fair 3-2.

Could have given the MOM to most of the team today, and couldn't fault Bowyers starting eleven, a good solid job certainly first half, and while we probably didn't press them back enough in the second I think the substitutions were probably right too, we took the three points and that is what mattered.

Onwards and Upwards.

I missed the first half, I said to a few people 'I bet it ends 3-3' and it nearly did. Its like we have no idea how to play when we are in control of the scoreline. There is a reason why we give so many late goals away etc and bowyer needs to sort it. We look so nervous at times. I think we need a real leader, Conway played the ball back to Hanley late on and all he could do was balloon the ball in the air and invite pressure, when a simple ball back would have done. This is from the captain who should be leading by example.

At last, someone posts a decent report of the game, instead of all the usual slagging Burnley and Rovers crap that gets on here.

Us Rovers fans that live abroad, or cannot get to the game desperately hang on to any snippets from the people that have been.

Cheers, we normally get some good opinions on the Match Report articles, if you have any specific questions we can usually get some debate going.

We need to watch the habit of conceding penalties. It is hard enough defending a lead without gifting the opposition goals.

Go to the Games, see for yourself, very poor decision today which I'm sure the TV will show was a dive.

That is the problem nowadays, referees seem to be very quick to award penalties. It is as if they have been told to by the authorities. There was a period not long ago where suspected diving led to cards. Now it seems to be the opposite penalties are given willy nilly. The one against the Rovers at Norwich was never a penalty in a million years. Where was the lad supposed to put his arm?
