Getting to Know....Aadil4Rovers!!!



We take some time out in the International break to visit Mr Aadil!

1) Sum up the season so far in 2 Paragraphs

Well im not jumping up and down but im not really worried yet. We have our home form that has put us in a decent position in the league, considering we have a game in hand but its our away form that has put a doubt in my head. What we need to do is get some points away from home as no matter how much I support Rovers, I know the home streak has to end sooner rather than later. Hopefully we can start with Bolton next week where I think 3 points is very possible.

Very pleased with the signings of Chimbonda, Givet and nzonzi. Still not convinced about Kalinic, Lars, Salgado and Franco. I also think we need to trim our sqaud a bit more get rid of Pedersen, Diouf and Andrew. I still have no idea why we bought Salgado unless hes gonna become a coach for rovers as hes just clogging up the wage bill. As Mr Williams has told us that is Rovers biggest problem and we need to trim the sqaud down to the essenitials so we should use the jan transfer window well.

2) The International Break. What do you think of it. How do you think it will affect our stars?

Well hating the fact that I dont have something to look forward to every week, but considering not too many of our players are gonna be playing will be a good rest so they can get their fitness levels back up. Especially because we have Bolton away next where we can get 3 points away from home.

3) The Big Debate. Benni McCarthy, Jason Roberts, David Dunn, Franco Di Santo and Nikola Kalinic. Exactly what would you do up front

For the moment, until Kalinic is fully fit and ready to play in the epl I go with Roberts and Benni up front with dunny in the hole and a 3 man midfield( last week we showed we dont need wingers). Once Kalinic comes good replace roberts with him and we have dangerous strike force that people will come to respect again.

4) Do you think Mikey Delap really does prefer the company of men? (Joke Question)

Sas that borders pretty close on treason. Lol aslong as the man keeps up with Vital and his new blog, couldnt really care less. Im sure if you ask him hell have a lot more to say on it then me.

5) Do you think we have to sell to buy this January, will we even invest in the market?

Yes if we buy im afraid we will have to sell as the Warnock transfer according to Mr williams covered our wage bill for the season so we break even. We probably wont make any major buys in January but if we do have to I would consider selling Andrews- Played well last season at most he should be a backup midfield player, Grella- Sorry Sas but he keeps getting injured and ive had enough if we can get a couple of million id be happy to wave him goodbye (awww). Pedersen and diouf- We dont need wingers and Steven Reid- Yes he was a great player but two seasons with no football can finish someone. If he comes good then keep him but if not get rid of him

6) FInally, who will win the English Premier League, where will Rovers finish and who will get relegated!

Winning the premiership......... Everyone is banking on Man utd and Chelsea but i dont think Man utd have it in them, So im gonna go with Chelsea and Arsenal coming a close second.

Relegation- Though most of the Rovers fans want burnley to go back down id rather they stay up so we can get a minimum of two games every year. So im banking on wolves, hull and pompey

Well hopefuly it can be in the top seven but thats asking alot so id be happy with top ten but worst case scenario well finish no lower than 12

Fantastic! Cheers for that Aadil.

retroflair31
Aadil? sell Grella, Andrews, Reid, Pedersen and Diouf? so who exactly is going to play in the middle? too much change is bad for the team.... and dont need wingers? every team needs wingers.. variety.. if we play one style only with no versitility we will get nowhere..... other than that... good read mate... looking forward to seeing 74s name up there soon? :D
rover23

sasman
Out of the four you mention I think the ones at most risk of being sold are Andrews and Pedersen...
