ROVERS JUGGERNAUT HITS TOP GEAR



ROVERS 2 – 0 BATTERSEA DOGS

Now we’ve started!

On a frozen pitch, in freezing temperatures and with Alicia Silverstone as Ref (Clueless) we completely dominated 3rd in the table and ran out deserved winners.

We were tight at the back, combative and creative in midfield and penetrative up top. Indeed, only Newcastle United can boast such a successful scouting network which has bought us the talents of Nathan, Galo and Sousa in recent weeks. Galo scored a screamer in the first half (think Ginola against Ferencvaros) which left me screaming like Gary Neville at a Fernando Torres montage, whilst Galo showed great guile throughout the match and scored a decent goal following great hassling and desire from Justin. Nathan also put in another great shift at centre back and looked like he’d been playing alongside G since Rovers began.

Battersea Dogs did not have a sniff all game and we’re left trying to feed off scraps throughout the match as the midfield and Juan in particular broke up their attacks before they reached our box. The ref often threw them a bone with a few dodgy decisions. There was one in particular which sticks in the mind when Nick was felled by their keeper in a Harold Schumacher on Patrick Battison fashion but we weren’t to be beaten.

It now seems like something has finally clicked this season and we’re hitting our stride. There’s no reason why we can’t use this momentum to put a long run together which catapults us into the promotion mix. With the players we’ve got, we did it before and with the new additions we can do it again.

With that in mind, this Sunday sees us up against Parthenope. We can beat these
