The Opposition View - Bristol Rovers

The Opposition View - Bristol Rovers


In the wake of yesterday's 6-3 defeat at home to Bristol Rovers, here are some views on the game from the Pirates' boss Paul Trollope and a few of their fans.


"It was a positive performance, full of spirit and endeavour, and that's the base requirement for a team to be successful and win games," said Trollope.

"We tried to put a little bit more tempo in our play to get a bit more of a cutting edge and I think we got that, as we scored six and could probably have had a few more."



The Rovers' fans were understandably chuffed to have seen their side score six goals away from home.

'Tremendous performance capped by an absolute stunner by Swallow and a peach of a run and finish by Lines. 10/10.'

'Tonight was, by a distance, the best performance I can remember under PT. Ten goals would not have flattered us. We had a positive mentality and looked to try and work a goalscoring opportunity every single time we had the ball. Credit also to the Wycombe fans who applauded Swallow's quite brilliant goal'

'Special mention to Wayne Brown who was dead unlucky not to score, twice hitting the post and also missing a sitter. Kuffour was simply unplayable tonight and had he got his fourth with a deft chip that came off the bar we'd be talking about one of the all time great Rovers goals. What a great game of football.'

'It was a funny old game. We didn`t do anything much apart from break well and finish. One of the Wycombe players had to jump the hoardings to go and fetch the ball out of the stands because there were no ball boys. Very odd, it looked a bit like getting it back from your next-door-neighbour`s garden when you are a kid.'


Harold Jarman wrote:
'Let's put it into perspective. We've beaten a team from the division below who were 'resting' several players and we still conceded 3 goals.'


Strange Notion wrote:
'Scott Rendell is a very good striker and one that I would have liked to have seen playing at The Mem. His hat-trick tonight proves that he can perform against League One clubs although he didn't get much chance at Peterborough.'
