He oozed class. Great first touch, excellent work rate. What a breathe of fresh air signing him and lines, as oppose to our useless signings earlier in the season. (Wall, goldberg, cunnington)

Little harsh on Cunnington, he played a role that should be thanked if we go up.

I Thought cunnington did well , the other two I agree were a waste of time and money but you can't win them all .

Goldberg would have been on very, very little. He was a Wakefield type signing - cover only. Wall had a lot of ability, but some sort of illness that means he can't train all the time and a bit of an attitude problem, was worth a punt though.

I agree , that's what I mean about you can't win them all . The sort of of signings we can make are usually going to be a gamble . Even Easter to an extent with his fitness if not his ability .

Easter looked sharper and hungrier than anyone else on that pitch, n he said post match he isnt match fit!! Imagine when we get him match fit!!! His and Lines presence seemed to improve everyone elses confidence on the ball!

Just back, slightly disappointed we didn't get anything from that, apart from a sloppy two minutes we matched Rovers for the rest. One poster above talks about our back four being all over the place, but theirs wasn't much better, played like they'd only just met. And the keepers handling was dodgy at best, disappointed we didn't test him more from range.

And what the fuck was the flashlight thing all about, I thought I'd ended up at a Taylor Swift concert. Naff and tinpot.

Better than that ruddy drum at your gaff!

We started the game well, took a deserved lead, but then lost impetus and conceded a sloppy equaliser. Shots then looked okay for the rest of the first half but never tested Will Puddy, who is our second choice goalkeeper. Brett Williams looked lively and did cause McChrystal a fair few problems it has to be said.

We moved up a gear for a spell in the second half, which we always had in our locker, and killed the game off with Monkhouse's and Taylor's goals. I thought we were going to get a fourth almost immediately after but it didn't quite happen for us, and from then we sat back and just soaked up a bit of pressure. Even then, though, when we stood off and let Shots attack us, they didn't get any efforts off on our goal.

As comfortable a victory as we have had at home this season and I'm very pleased that we're back top of the tree. Fully expect Barnet, Grimsby and Macclesfield to win their games tomorrow, but at least we have the points on the board.

Get over yourself. You're in a relegated scrap for a reason. Bitter.

Tough game today reminds me of the season we got into the league 2 playoffs played some great stuff until feb and then limped into the playoffs with no form behind us. Chance to get back on track today and give it one final push

And Welling like a red card :)
I'll be waiting for that then in the first 10 minutes.

I might be wrong but haven't you struggled this season when you have had to play 3 games in a space of 7 days? I'm probably just grasping onto any little hope to be honest...

No doubt Urban thinks you will lose...

No we have been generally fine on the Saturdays, it's the Tuesday games that kill us. We ask a lot of Akinde and I dont think three nights rest is enough for him to fully recover, it's a common call of our opponents on Tuesdays that they can't understand how Akinde is leading scorer and to me he's looked heavy legged.
My concern today is Dom Vose, we signed him a couple of years ago in league 2 and at the time I was impressed, However his chances of getting game time in a midfield of Oster and Davids were slim and it was a shame we let him go without him getting a decent chance. He will see today as a chance to show everyone we made a mistake. He has scored 4 of Wellings last 6 goals.

We need to win to stay in the title race, but Hurst will take a loss as it means we'll still be in with a chance of securing a play-off spot.

John-Lewis will probably be recalled back to the starting XI despite Palmer and Pittman both scoring 2 in 2.
After reading that I don't even know why I'm going because I agree with every word!

That's what happens when you sign a wrestler.

Didn't think we were really in the game last night until Williams scored his 14th of the season (not bad for this season's club scapegoat) but after that we were the better side until half time.

Second half Bristol Rovers had more play but didn't really threaten until we had 2 minutes of suicidal defending which we were punished for. After that I thought they killed the game off well although Williams on occasion looked a threat for us.

I can see why Bristol Rovers are top of the league, as I could see why Barnet are up there over Christmas - but neither side will go down in history as one of the great conference champions. Our 2007/08 title winning side would have had the title wrapped up by now.

Bitter? Get over yourselves, we lost to Bristol Rovers not Barcelona. Two very Lutonesque quotes there, thinking they're better than the division they're in. We've been shit all season thanks to TFG, that was one of our best away performances all year, that's just how shit we've been.

My brief analysis. First 12 minutes Gas came out at 100mph and played some of the best football I've seen this year and deservedly scored. They then stopped thinking the games was won, just like the lad selling the pasties said they would. We got back into it mainly because of that, but also because their back four was a shambles. Williams scored a decent equaliser and 1-1 at half time was about right.

Second half Rovers started and we didn't. Two goals in a poor two minutes from us sealed our fate, though we were never truly out of it as Rovers always looked capable of giving us something.

To put it in perspective, I came away from a 3-1 defeat feeling more positive after seeing some decent entertainment and at last watching us have a go. After the dark days of TFG, last night was, to me anyway, the first step on a long road back.

EDIT. What an amazing pitch as well. Nice now the egg chasers have gone. I still think ours is the best in the division (I would given the amount of hours I've gt invested in it) but that one was equally as good. Was it relaid in the summer after the rugby boys pissed off?

Just repeating what your commentators said on the radio at that moment in the game. They felt the injury break had taken the momentum out of you, that the goal had made the crowd nervous and this was being transmitted onto the players. I wasnt there, so I can't judge and have no obsession on it.

Not me gov :dk:

I think Rovers fans are obsessed by the word obsessed.

A fair analysis Slaphead, I can certainly see where you are coming from with all your points.

The pitch is absolutely superb and it is something of a novelty for us given how bad it usually is at this stage of the season. It is re-laid every summer but you can't usually tell after the rugger play on it during the winter, but the ground staff have a done a great job in keeping it so good. We had a spell in January where we didn't play at home for a few weeks and it gave them time to do some work on it - what I don't know, but that's what one of the staff told me the other day!

You're welling up there.
Anyone fancy doing a ranking of Conference Premier pitches? I'd fancy ours to be in the play-off positions, challenging for promotion.

Good to see Hurst stick with Pittman and Palmer and put LJL on the bench considering all the know it all fans said he wouldn't
