Perfect outcome for me. I know I should want Rovers to win every game - and I did yesterday- but I would have been gutted to get a glamour draw that we couldn't go to. It was good to see we weren't scared to give it a go, hearing PT shout 'Stay up' at the players when we needed a goal was a breath of fresh air. It should be noted that that was a very strong Sheffield United line up and not the kind of weakened side many Premier League teams put out in this competition.
Very disappointed in the MOTD coverage , they just focused on Sheffield United and how this result would help them in the league, barely mentioned us.
Actually Dublin said Rovers were outstanding. Plus mystic Paul said he predicted 3 2!
Yes I heard that, but that was about it, one word!
This is the reason why MoTD is NEVER on in this house ,as if there was no other football outside this league,until about 4games from the end of the season and discuss who is likely to be promoted from the chumpionship
I used to watch MOTD religiously. I honestly can't remember when I last put it on. I lost interest quite a few years ago. BBC punditry seems to have gone downhill. The eulogising of the premiership just grates. Part of the disenfranchisement of 'real supporters'. Perhaps behind closed doors and without any supporters, it highlights the relatively poor product. I can't even be bothered with Quest. I just watch Bristol Rovers on iFollow, Union Berlin highlights and the occasional Sabadell game on Youtube - that's it for me for the moment. Conclusion: Without an emotional connection to the soccerball, I can't be arsed.
Pretty much how I feel. I can watch rugby as a neutral, but football I have to have that attachment to one of the teams.
