Today we were robbed by an incompetent referee.In saying that-we showed plenty of craft,guile and commitment-allied with organisation and endeavour.I am now hugely optimistic that we have the players to move us forward.Well done Kevin to affect such a positive change in such a short time on our playing style.
Incompetent? No. Cheat? Almost certainly. Hampden last week. 2 queen's players collide. Head knock. Play immediately stopped. That's the rules. Today. Two rovers players collide. Head knock. Play on. Let the other team score. Disgraceful. And referees wonder why they get peters. This is why.
The referee was the best player for our opponents today with an absolute shocking decision to play on with Sean Fagan on the floor with a head injury which in the rules means the ref should immediately stop the game for the player to get treatment and he played on and they scored.
The players played fantastic today and we only lost because of a keeper mistake and the refs stupid mistake I couldn’t fault any of them for there effort and desire to get something out of the game today.
WhenI asked the linesman’s why he didn’t stop for the head Knocks he said “it was too close to the goals” absolute nonsense. Then when I was eventually allowed on the park and questioned the ref about it he firstly said that “ he didn’t know it was a head knock” when I told him it was HIS JOB to check that, he tutted and said they made a mess of it not my fault. I won’t tell you my response as I’m unsure how good the filter is on this forum!!! 🤬🤬🤬

Definitely the best 1st half performance I have seen from Rovers this season. The second half would have been hard to repeat but well encouraging for the future. 100% agree with the comments regarding the ref. Big respect to Mick Dunlop who applauded the Rovers fans at the end of the game. Absolute legend.
Great performance from lads today. Just a pity we didn't convert the numerous chances in 1st half. Agree with comments already posted regarding referee. Not sure if refereeing reviewer was in today. Hope so. Onwards and upwards with a great deal of enthusiasm. We just need a couple of players to strengthen our squad to a league safety position. My wish list is for their no. 11 and Mick Dunlop to appear in Rovers squad. Sweet dreams.....
