Poor Gilly's had an operation today to have a plate and a hook put in his shoulder. Rotten luck for him, especially given the time of year but also given he's had a good run in the side lately after a few other niggling injuries at the start of the season.

Obviously the best wishes of all at the club are with him.

Sorry to hear of the injury, so early in the game as well. Hope all goes well and your back playing soon

Hope Gilly is back playing soon - that is bad luck.

An excellent report from El Pedro and he hits the nail on the head - we just looked fitter and stronger and it was only a matter of time before Rovers collapsed.

Poor overall from the boys though - 48-0 would have been the perfect scoreline.

I could be mistaken but I do believe that my more than generous donation secured me an invite to Mally's picnic.

Good to see so many of the Stags team getting a game and getting on the scoresheet. Not a great game by any stretch of the imagination. Rovers think they did well but they won't get anywhere until their players lose a bit of weight and get some training under their belts. Not being bithcy just tryig to do some missionary work.

Happy New Year.

I agree WPA - Rovers won't make any significant progress unless they improve their fitness. We have been under the cosh many times but always come back into the game - contrast that with say Burnage who started well but then were virtually penned into their own half after the half time break and finally just cope with the pressure.

Quinny - did you acquire any bottles or was it just cans?
