The fixtures are here!

The fixtures are here!

It is fixture day. As usual thanks to the shortsighteness of the Premier League, Football League, our FA and their legal eagles at Dataco, we can`t show them.

Correct, we can`t publish the fixtures - adverts for the games we pay good money to go and see - without paying a fee which none of us can afford to pay and wouldn`t even if we could.



we look to promote the game in every way we can including letting fans know when to attend games but this is seen as a chargeable to fans process. It also defies the European Court of Justice about publishing fixture charges but hey, we don`t have the financial backing to challenge that.



so... fixtures are available at the official site: http://www.rovers.co.uk/page/Fixtures/

A tough set of fixtures this year! Seems to go easier harder easier harder for the most part.. so seems impossible to get a good run going!

We kick off with Wolves at home! A repeat of the last game of last season would be a cracker to watch!

The Xmas-New Year has been really unkind to us though!

Still a good first home game which is winnable - an early game against villa and a new boss still taking charge could get a result and Everton early in the season are always slow starters - so hopeful of points there too! I think a good start.

Given that many Rovers fans are saying the Kean shouldn't be judged until we see how the start of the new season goes, it'll be a very fair test of whether he's really up to it. There are, of course, no easy games, but if we don't get off to a decent start, I can't see there being many excuses.

Still can't believe that after all these years we're still unable to show the fixtures. Disgrace!!
