How long have you been following Rovers and what was your first game?
The bug bit in 1986 home to Plymouth Argyle, a dull game and I think 0-0, I was amazed (as a kid) after the game with being surrounded by a heavy police escort at Stapleton Rd station at 15 years of age and with a school friend and 300 Plymouth fans on the opposite platform!
What is your most memorable moment following the gas?
Relegation to the fourth tier without a doubt, after wandering to the centre circle after the game the sight of Dunford Jnr using naughty hand signals to the fans was the pits.
So many great ventures throughout the country and did all the big and not so big ones regularly throughout the 80/90's, but one stands out beyond all and that was beating Wigan 5-0 in 1997, this resulted in my eldest being ahem created if you like at around closing time that night! He is great company at games now and has the unenviable task of telling me to calm down from time to time.
Ian Holloway, cant think of any player more committed, a Gashead, thoughtful, honest, passionate and mad, a bit like yours truly.
Lewis Haldane, Moussa Dagnogo deserves a special mention also.
What would you say is the best goal you have seen us score?
I used to like the Devon goals that went in off his neck or the back of his knee for pure entertainment, but we all love to beat the city and being in the East End when Beades hit that 25 yard rocket makes me shiver now as much as it did then.
Best away ground visited?
That would be Griffin Park, I was 21 and had arrived by train, I was on a walking stick having undergone spinal surgery earlier in the week and after explaining my recent plight I got treated like a king by the gorgeous blonde girl in one of the home fans locals on the corner of the ground, the way I was looked after by the stewards that day was also top drawer, human nature before big plastic grounds any day.
What are your thoughts on the proposed new stadium?
WATCH IT LENNY THERES A PIG FLYING STRAIGHT TOWARDS YOU!!!
Which player(s) would you like to see us sign (realistically)?
Dean Windass ! (He`s too old for the prem now).
Which player would you like to see leave the club?
Don`t like this question as we appear to have a full squad of lads who all want a good go, so no one.
What are your thoughts on how last season ended and how did it compare to your expectations?
It was a classic FA cup hangover after the WBA game, I was disappointed with the lack of desire towards the end but pleased that the team achieved what most realistic thinking Gasheads wanted which was safety.
What are your expectations for next season?
If Ricky isn`t poached and he and Darryl Duffy form a decent partnership then I would like to think the play offs are a genuine shout.
Where do you sit at the Ground?
Mostly the tent with the other 12 fans, if the away support have it then up in the Centenary (or whatever it`s called now) stand.
Name the celebrity you would most like to bang
This is a stark warning to Steve Macdonald, Michelle (Kym Marsh) is mine all mine, what id give for 10 minutes in the Rovers Return cellar with her, nurse pass me my pills!
