Bristol Rovers 0-0 Blades

“Good game of football I thought, just lacking a little bit of cutting edge from both teams.
Can’t believe how quickly our defence has turned around, worst defence in the league prior to the recent spell now looking very very solid.
Both teams could have won it. United hit the post and Gaffney should have done better when rounding the keeper (love that DC called him out of diving btw, it looked it from my angle and I don’t particularly like to see it at the best of times but even more when he should have rounded the keeper and scored.)
Overall an enjoyable game, decent atmosphere and a point I would have taken.”

“ I thought it was a penalty and could not see the offside however it is difficulte to tell behind the goal.”

“As DC said, I think both decisions were right. Maybe should have booked gaffers for diving but don’t think it was a pen. Brilliant game though.”

“Not a penalty. But the ginger thing should have buried that chance. Dreadful attempt. Reminded me of Twatty Taylor”

“Sheffield U are a very good side who will go up this season.”

“We’ve played 2 fancied teams both home and away now and neither has bettered us.”

“Last three games have played 3 of the top 6, unbeaten with 3 clean sheets, that is actually pretty decent in my book.”

“What a game.”

“Decent point against a very good blades side … Ref was odd to say the least …”

“Entertaining game. The second half was superb at times, cracking stuff. A good point for both sides?” 

“Happy with that against the top team.”

“Excellent point against Championship class opposition.”

“Unbeaten against Rochdale, Bradford and now Sheffield Utd….. defence now feels way much better just need the front five to click ….. delighted with that tonight.”

“Matched them man to man. Great result” “Fans were fantastic tonight, Sheff Utd a very good footballing team. Defended v well “

“Best 0-0 I’ve ever been to.”

“Good point. Not sheffs first 11 as saved a few for their top the table clash on sat, but we played well.”

“Well what a great 0-0 under the lights, good atmosphere a good tempo game, just a goal would have topped off performance from the boys tonight especially at the back.the noise was great and we blunted the blades. Great result against top of the league, Championship quality side.”

“Cracking game…….nice touch that Rovers supporters on the west side stayed long enough to applaud off the Sheffield Utd team who returned the compliment…..classy touch.”

“One of my favourite games for a long time. Both sides had decent spells. Game swung one way and then another. Brilliant atmosphere. Only thing missing was a goal. So good to have proper football at the Mem again.”

“A great 0 – 0. Good quality footie. Chances at both ends. tough, toe-to-toe action.”

“Our keeper was immense, kept us in the game just one small main sail up when they hit the post, from his slippy clearance. Hope we can keep him”

“Happy with that. right, i’m off to get my leg over.”

  1. Like yr man said, best nil nil I’ve seen in many a year, keep performing like that Rovers and you’ll make the play offs, perform like that in the paly offs and you’ll be playing us again next season. Good Luck for the rest of the season.
