Rovers sell out Emirates allocation

Rovers head to Arsenal with a full backing after the club office has announced that their allocation of 1,500 has been snapped up.

Despite the frankly ludicrous ticket prices charged by Arsenal the Rovers faithful have recognised the need for some strong support and will be there in voice for a game which has traditionally been poorly attended by the blue and white.

The kick off is 5.30 on Saturday as Rovers continue their quest to avoid relegation.

In a bizarre way, this may be the turning point for the team. Arsenal historically pull our pants down and Royally spank us, but they are going through something of a rough patch themselves. All the pressure is on them, we will be severe underdogs, all the tabloids and sycophants on Sky Sports won't give us a cat in hell's chance, so how much of a confidence boost would a draw, or dare I say it a win be. The Barmy Army will do their part, all that remains is that the boys in blue and white on the pitch give it all they've got, then with a little luck we may upset all those know it all clowns, and if we ruffle Wenger's feathers all the better.

To sell out this allocation is superb, all the more so given the fact that it's a 17:30 kick-off time. Getting to the Emirates isn't going to be so much of a problem for people it's the getting back that might.
