Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland [League One]

1 Name: 606 2019-02-23 14:47
Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland [15:00 GMT]

Sunderland head to Bristol Rovers' Memorial Ground today looking to build on Tuesday's victory over Gillingham and keep the pressure on Barnsley and Luton above them.

The race for League One promotion is really beginning to hot up now and with Barnsley and Porstmouth both dropping points in midweek ahead of their clash against one another this afternoon, automatic promotion is back in the Black Cats' hands.

That rests on them winning all of their remaining games, however, so they must continue their winning form from Tuesday into this one.

They'll have to do so without Chris Maguire (fractured fibula), Bryan Oviedo (groin) and Lynden Gooch (doubt, hamstring), however.

Can Jack Ross' side pick up another valuable three points on the road?

Jack Ross made just once change to the side that started the midweek win over Gillingham, which was forced upon him as Chris Maguire suffered a fractured fibula in that game which will rule him out for at least six weeks.

His place was taken by Duncan Watmore, who was himself returning from a groin problem.

Adam Matthews was included amongst the subs after being left out entirely for the last three games.

Sunderland XI: McLaughlin, O’Nien, Flanagan, Dunne, James, Honeyman, Cattermole, Leadbitter, McGeady, Grigg, Watmore

Subs: Ruiter, Power, Matthews, Ozturk, McGeouch, Morgan, Wyke

Why does britons unironically want a plastic team with a plastic fan base win the title rather than a historic one like Bristol Rovers? I mean, if I was british i'd rather have them winning it, Sunderland plastic fans are slowly becoming what Newcastle ones were in the 90's and Leeds in the 80's-90's (which I assume annoying as fuck).

No one gives a fuck what some shit club with no fans wins or does, if Liverpool win it though we won't hear the end of it for years. Easy choice.

because although Bristol Rovers are a disgusting money club they're at least honest about it, whereas Sunderland and Newcastle fans delude themselves into thinking they're somehow not just as bad.

incorrect
they’re suddenly everywhere in the states
it doesn’t matter who wins, the amount of supporters will spike in the states cause no one here has any loyalty to anything except being/feeling number 1
it’s a travesty but it’s how Americans operate because we are a winning obsessed culture and buying/selling to win is normal here

enough to make you sick lads

No-one gives a shit about foreign bandwagoners. Rovers fans don't exist in the UK so we'll never hear from them if they do win the league.

no one gives a shit about foreign bandwagoners
these are some famous last words lad
it’ll become insufferable soon, just because you don’t hear it in public life doesn’t mean it’s not gonna affect you elsewhere
and I can tell you the foreign supporters will become much more louder and prouder then what you’re used to back home
it’ll be middle eastern bandwagonners multiplied by a million
can’t tell you how retarded some of these mlsoy types can be. They welcome this bandwagon shit because they think that more American support suddenly means a better national team — the ends justify the means
it’s not a culture you want to enter an already warped football culture senpai

He's done alright at some of his jobs, Twente and Derby being particularly good ones where he served multiple periods of management on the back of the work he'd done the first time he went there, and other than them he only had 4 other jobs:
flopped at wolfsburg, but still had the hype from his twente work when sacked and could have just been seen as a move too far at that time
forest was shit, but lots of forest managers were shit at that time, and he went straight from there to twente again where he did a decent job that helped his rep again, followed by derby with the same effect
flopped at newcastle, but again was a long run of managers to flop there, went back to derby to continue the work he had been doing about 6 months prior and had a decent patch of form again
Then it's to QPR
So tl;dr, he does enough decent work every now and then to save his reputation when it goes wrong
