    When did we last win 5-0 away

    I went to Bolton in the early 60's and we won 5-0 or 5-1. Has there been a rout like this recently? The newspapers had the headline "Rovers go nap ".

    I think Duggie scored and McEvoy and Fred. Might be wrong due to many years having passed.

    Definitely worth the 3.50 alarm-call!
    When I saw the line-up, my first thoughts were: "One attacker too many. A bit gung-ho - especially with only one 'holding' player."
    There you go! Hats off, as predictions fly out of the window again. (I doubt if there is a single person in the universe who went for that score-line!)

    If my horribly faulty memory is correct. I think that was the match where I tried to hitch up from Gloucester, but only got as far as Birmingham.
    (I was a schoolboy with not much cash).

    In a funny sort of way, were more likely to miss out on the top 6 playing the 'poorer' teams, than the better ones.

    It's when teams set up to stop us that we mainly struggle. It's a conundrum that TM has to try and sort out in our remaining games.

    Totally agree, Saxo.
    The Wigan game was the biggest disappointment of the season for me.
    QPR should be interesting. Their "goals for" is the second best in the Division, and their "goals against", the second worst! It doesn't sound as if they pack their defence.
    I see that they have lost their last three away games.
    What conclusions can we draw from all that?
    Well, you'd guess at something like 3-2, either way, but given the way the results are, it will probably turn out to be nil-nil!
