Still hasn't sunk in what happened on Saturday, typical rovers leaving it until the 92nd minute to get a winner. We had so many chances, enough to win 3 or 4 matches. In injury time I thought we had blown it but my word the scenes when Lee brown got the winner.
Feel for accrington, can't imagine how their fans felt. Will be cheering them on in the playoffs.

Yeah, think I want Accrington to come up. Not just from the heart-breaking manner of them being in the playoffs in the first place, but also because they have so much rubbish aimed at them through the milk advert!

Would be interesting to see Wimbledon in the same division as MK Dons as well though.

Are Bristol Rovers still planning to move grounds btw? Seem to have been planning to move away from the Memorial for ages. Oh and congratulations, impressive having 2 promotions in such a short space of time.

Pleased for Rovers. Used to watch them (& the Bristol Bombers!) at the old Eastville Stadium when I lived there for a couple of years as a kid. Watching them have to go to Bath was not nice to see.

The South West should have a top (ish) team. Good luck to Rovers next year

The new board have said that they would like to have a new stadium by 2018. They are currently sorting out some issues with UWE that they feel need addressing, I personally think one of them is buying the land. (before our takeover UWE would be leasing the land to us).

The whole process has been delayed by Sainsburys pulling out of a deal to buy the Memorial Stadium. Luckily we now have new owners and the new ground doesn't depend on the sale of the Mem.

The FA has upheld the red card and 3 match ban from the brighton/boro game.

By a top team I mean anyone from the South West. Its an area that would grace PL football - just said in the context of Rovers as genuinely pleased for their promotion

It would be good to get some top flight football to the area, Bournemouth are the closest at the moment.

One day hopefully PAFC will be there COYG!
