Bristol Rovers 1 – 1 Albion


Not expecting much from this one, Rovers are flying high at the minute and we’re leaking goals again. A draw will be a fantastic result. Glenn  Murray returns from injury to earn a place on the bench today.

As expected, lots of Rovers’ chances on our goal in the first 20 minutes, Elphick and Kuipers doing most of the desperate defending. Now Player has crashed on me again. Adam Virgo has been sent off – fuck knows what for as I can’t get a thing on Player. Half-time 0-0. Don’t expect that result at full-time. Bollocks. Jake Wright is on for Dickinson after the sending off, to shore up what’s going to be a very hammered defence second half.

Looks like I’ve lost coverage for this game completely, fucking Afghan server!!! So, I’ll not be scoring this game unless it comes back online soon. I now have the shameful experience of watching the text updates on the BBC website, and that is shite too. I can’t wait to come home next month and go to the game itself. Being a long distance cyber-fan is fucking useless.

I don’t need commentary to know the Seagulls have a discipline problem this season – too many red and yellow cards for stupid shite.

Albion Goalscorer and Man of the Match James TunnicliffeErm second half, James Tunnicliffe (central defender) has just scored!!! 1-0 to the Albion, WTF? Leave it – Rovers have equalised, all hands to the pump, we went up to 11th in the table then back into the relegation zone in two goals. Crazy football. Hanging on, I’m flitting between Yahoo, the Beeb and North Stand Chat trying to follow this one, come on lads two minutes to go. Rovers hit the woodwork twice.

We hung on, Jesus that was close, rode our luck for a jammy point. Maybe it was better I didn’t get this game on Player, would’ve given me a heart attack. Tunnicliffe gets Man of the Match for his goal and what the NSC has been saying. Phew!

    not a point I expected but it could have been 3 points and as you say up 11th and then down to 21st all in all a great battling point and with some of the long term injured coming back things are definitely looking more promising.
    My dream would be that Murray comes back and scores a hatfull and decides he like Brighton after all, whatever it might up his price a little if he starts hitting the back of the net.
    Totally agree Tunnicliffe MOM he is coming along nicely and I can see him nailing his place in the side ….Dicker had another good game.

    It was a good point, shame I missed two thirds of the game with my shitty server. Tunnicliffe better not get too good or he’ll be off on a big transfer! But he does look very promising indeed.

    I’m home for the Hartlepool game and will be off to St Mary’s for Saints – really looking forward to that one.
